Good to know

Unfortunately, little is known about the exact origins of the dhow. Scholars believe the first constructions of the dhow began in China between the years of 600 BC to 600 CE. Today, dhow ships are still used for commercial purposes, with several ships making the journey between the Arabian Gulf and East Africa each year. Laden with cargo of mostly dates and fish, the dhows still rely completely on their sails to propel them to their destination.
