28th Sabah Dragon Boat Race Day 1

Just came back from the 28th Sabah Dragon Boat Race, happening in these two days from 15th to 16th of June 2013, 8am onwards.

It’s been almost 6 years since I left All Saints and today I did enjoy the view of our very own Likas Bay here at Kota Kinabalu. Beautiful and clear view of our magnificent Mount Kinabalu, calm sea water at the bay, fresh air to breathe with, it’s just another good day to begin with.

Finding parking might be a headache for late comers, so be aware of that. Parking at the road side is an option or you might need to do a little walking from any parts of the Likas area. Imagine, I was there at 6.30am and I’m lucky enough to get a little spot to park my car.

Heat races begin after the sportsmen oath taking ceremony.

Men’s Open 200 meters race (12 crew), Mix team 200 meters race (12 crew), Breast Cancer Survival Race 200, Kinabalu Dragon Trophy (Junior boys under 20 years old), Sabah Dragon Trophy (International & Malaysian Mix Teams), Sabah Chief Minister’s Trophy (Malaysian Men’s Teams), Sabah Head of State Trophy (International & Top Malaysian Men’s Teams).

Race ended at 11.30am.

On the RIGHT: A couple of tourists came to the event venue and asked if they can join the competition but this is all depend on the race managers. So do come by the secretariat and ask for more information, they are really helpful in providing all information. On the LEFT: These are the MC for the Sabah Dragon Boat Race. Personally, they are my father’s colleagues in RTM before he retires. Spend some time talking to them, I have found out that they have been MC-ing for this event for almost 10 years! WOW.
