Looking Forward to Visiting the Kerama Islands Later this Month

Umimaru sabani crew at sea

The invitation was accepted and, I'll be going along with the Umimaru, again this year.

Hopefully, we'll have blue skies and nice weather.

Rainy season was supposed to have ended, Sunday. 

But, it looks like somebody forgot to tell the weatherman to turn the water off.


The Sailing Sabani Race Takes Place on the 22d of June



We'll be going over to Zamami Island, where the race starts, a few days earlier.

To get ready for the trip, I decided to look through last year's photos.

And, discovered a bunch, that had never been processed.

Here's what the Umimaru crew looks like paddling their sabani boat.

Meanwhile, I'm bouncing around on a big diesel powered fishing boat, trying to shoot them.

And, I have to hang on to something or, could get thrown overboard.

Everybody, wears life-jackets, for safety.

Just hope the weather spirits are in a good mood for the race this year.

Or, I'll be looking forward to getting back to this island, in a hurry.

Have a peek at Zamami Village's  homepage for more information.
