Sarikei Pineapple Festival 2008: Regatta

December 9, 2008

06 and 07 December

The sixth and seventh day of Sarikei Pineapple Festival 2008 continues with the Sarikei Regatta 2008. It is held on the Nyelong River, at the same place where fishing competition is held on Friday.

Having no idea and luck on event schedule, i went there on Sunday, which is the last day of the boat racing. I don’t have the schedule for the boat race and i use the free time when there is no racing to snap picture of people in the esplanade.

Boats that are not used in a race is put at the slope formerly used for ferry point. There’s two ferry point and both of them are used to land the boats.
