Traditional outrigger canoe sailing

Henrik and Rob are busy with their trainees at the boat building workshop (details what exactly they do follow soon!) all day.

But after work it’s time for sailing:

The traditional Marshallese canoes are the fastest native boat designs on the planet. Once you get familiar with their unique characteristics (especially the shunting maneuver) its lots of fun!

The canoe in the video was made by students from plywood and local lumber. Everything is lashed, no metal is used. The material to build on cost only 500$
