Sailing through the first Gulf war in 1988

We worked for 18 months like crazy and finished building our Pahi 42 feet Catamaran, a James Wharram design, in time! This is the video we made during the building in Bahrain and also of our "Sailing through the first Gulf War in 1988", a war between Iraq and Iran, towards the coast of India and the Maldives. We've edited the original VHS tapes, made them digital, and included new interviews with my wife Agnes and myself in 2014, some 26 years later, it's funny to see yourself in 1988 and 2014. It seems to be very special material because of the time and the war that was going on around us, and we were the only yacht sailing in the Gulf at that time!
