I was in Malaybalay City conducting a photography workshop and it so happened that a half marathon sponsored by a food and beverage company was scheduled last Sunday, 2 June. That’s why, I was able to cover this race in the cool montane city. Check the 300+ images uploaded at Fit and Run’s FB page.
THere’s no better way to enjoy the team spirit in Boracay than with the Boracay International Dragon Boat Festival 2013! The 7th edition not only brought in 906 participants from different places like Manila, HK, Singapore, Canada, China and the USA, but it has also brought to the fore 9 competing dragon boat teams from the island itself.
What’s more interesting is that not only did these local teams lord it over in all categories, Boracay All Stars was even selected by the Hong Kong Tourism Board to race in that territory this June. What’s striking though was that these teams are mostly composed of Boracay residents, native Ati’s (especially the Nami team), hotel employees and workers.
The event was indeed a world class race. There were new champion boats of the Philippine Canoe Kayak Federation, Dr. Luk Wei Hung, chief official of the ITO, together with Coach Len Escollante and Jonne Go, Sec Gen of Philippine Canoe Kayak Federation made sure that the race followed international rules.
Friday and Saturday were 500m and 250m distances, respectively. And with the introduction of the 10 paddler category, allowed smaller teams to compete. There was also the Masters Small Boat Category (minimum age 40) which made other teams come.
The 8th BIDBF tentatively scheduled for April 24-26. The partnership, Gigi Piit, Tootsie Ronnholm, Nenette Graf and Candy Perez de Tagle from BIPA thank all the participants, sponsors and supporters for helping to make this year a success.
The 7th Boracay International Dragon Boat Festival opened last 25 April 2013 with a parade in Station 2 from Boracay Beach Resort to the beach strip infront of the Regency, the program venue. With 27 teams in attendance from Boracay, Manila, Singapore, Guanghzou, Hongkong, US and Canada.
Opening night was fun with the different teams presenting something on stage. Mostly were team dancing with the bolder ones, like the Singapore Dragons increasing the night temperature with their well shaped bodies with the ladies gasping at the sight of the men.
Nami ati Boracay, one of the Boracay teams with mainly indigenous Ati’s, the original inhabitants of the island and Panay who are such a great team players, had their sirena that gained the judges’s approval and winning one of the categories of the program contest on closing night.
The dragon boat players are a closely knit group and its not only the friendly competition that identifies these sportsmen but great camaraderie as well.
