Video From a Different Rowing Race in the United Arab Emirates

According to its original title, the video uploaded in 2009 shows a rowing race held at a students' camp at the town of Al-Marfa' (المرفأ) in the Emirate of Abu Zabi (also known as Abu Dhabi أبو ظبي), a part of the United Arab Emirates (UAE). As obvious from the video, the racing boats are fixed-seat coxed tens. Both the vessels and the oars have a rough traditional design.

For more information on the traditional rowing in the UAE, see an interview published on the website of the International Federation of Rowing Associations (FISA) on 20 December 2010.
