Filipino team wins dragon boat competition

Filipino team wins dragon boat competition

The Yilan Dragon Boat Festival took place the other day, and the Filipino team defended the crown again this year. There are seven groups and 47 teams taking part in the competition this year, which is the most participants in ten years.

The international teams are Filipino and Indonesian teams, and both of which work as fishermen in Nanfangao, so they only practiced twice before the competition. Due to the experience of working on the ship, it was easy for them to row the dragon boat. The Filipino team won the competition in the end for the NT$20,000 award.

The event at Dongshan River Park was free of charge, so the competition attracted many tourists to watch the game, and many of them indicated it looked really fun and they’d like to try as well.
