Regatta: Taguig River Festival 2019
Row, row, row your boat!
In this year's grueling Regatta (boat race) on July 25, Thursday, Team Magic Island from Barangay Bagumbayan emerged victorious again, making it their third consecutive win in the contest.
Regatta is part of the Taguig River Festival, where participants race using fiberglass boats used by Taguig fishermen. It also plays an important role in the annual festival as it pays tribute to the city's ancestors, mostly fishermen.
Each boat is paddled by four participants and a boy who serves as a drummer in charge of cheering on the paddlers as they row about half a kilometer away to a turning point and then return to the start line.
