Sarawak dragon boats roar
The Sarawak International Dragon Boat Regatta is a highly anticipated water sports event in the state. It usually takes place in the latter months of the year but the ongoing pandemic has led to the cancellation of 2021’s event. Let us reminisce about the event and look forward to future editions of the race.
This event takes inspiration from the historic Sarawak Regatta and attracts many participants to vie for the title. The race sees teams compete for top honours against the backdrop of the Kuching Waterfront.
Traditional boats – brightly coloured and decorated with a dragon’s head and tail – are used during the regatta. The rowers put their all into the competition, cheered on by the excited spectators.
