Omani women sailors making waves

Al Jazeera's Jo Gasiorowska meets the Omani women's team set to make waves in the professional sailing world.

    Despite a history of maritime trade and pearling, Omani sailors have been largely underrepresented on the international sailing circuit.

    Now the country is trying to build on its maritime heritage and train a new generation of young Omani sailors to compete at the top level of the sport.

    Al Jazeera’s Jo Gasiorowska speaks to Oman's women's team - some of whom had never set foot on a sail boat two years ago - about making waves in the professional sailing world.
