Never been to Dubai. Never wanted to.
But the offer of filming one hundred traditional dhows racing in front of that crazy skyline had to be done.
it was a short shoot and I headed out with Rob.
Dubai was everything I had feared and more. won't explain here, go and see for yourself!
Sadly a lot that had been promised wasn't delivered, so a lot of gnashing of teeth and running around ensued.
Somehow, thanks to Rob's hard work I found myself aboard this beautiful yacht ( supposedly the favourite). Although i started to smell a rat when the crew were eating lunch when the whistle went.
The race was great fun, a vast billowing sail, stunning hardwood decks and the crew all in white djellabas. screaming along in front of the barj al arab and burj khalifa
Sadly we came about 90th....
