Ocean adventure racing in dugout mango trees

Bollocks to boring modern yachts with their auto-pilots and comfy cabins. For a proper ocean adventure vessel you need to go back a few centuries. Take a dugout canoe made from a mango tree, add a bamboo mast, a sail and a couple of outriggers and you have the Ngalawa – the ultimate sailing machine. Line up against a fleet of like-minded souls and point it towards the Indian Ocean racecourse of spice islands, deserted beaches and sand banks off the coast of Tanzania.
