Great display of the South Coast Kenyan culture - delicious local food from Funzi and Wasini islands, traditional ceremonies and dancing and brilliant boatmanship on the racing ngalawas!
Best sailing event in Kenya and fantastic mix of cultures.
A unique annual event that’s not to be missed. Jane and I love the atmosphere: serious sailing competition, local dancers and Swahili food.
