Boats hit Bassac river for annual competition

The Traditional Dragon Boat and Canoe/Kayak Championships (under international standard) returns to the riverfront of Takhmao town in Kandal province with races flagging off from 8am tomorrow morning.

The annual event, featuring provincial and club teams from across the Kingdom, was cancelled last year by the tournament committee along with Water Festival races down the Tonle Sap river, to help concentrate on the flood disaster relief effort. 756 men and women have signed up to compete this year.

Their boats will be prepared and blessed by monks today while the draw for the race schedule will also be held.
