Brazilian fishermen sailing regatta!

Neat cross-over in sailing culture… The local fishermen hold a yearly regatta in Camamu Bay that runs behind the Peninsula de Marau, racing their dug-out canoes with three different types of rigging. This is in the north-east of Brazil, in the state of Bahia, 5 hours south of Salvador.
