The race drew the participation of 450 rowers from 29 teams in Binh Hoa, Quang Dien communes and Buon Trap town. Each boat with 15 rowers competed in a 500m race.
After the competition, the organizing panel presented one first, one second, one third, one fourth and four consolation prizes to the winning teams.
The competition was held annually to preserve and promote the culture of the region, uphold the spirit of sportsmanship, pray for favorable weather and abundant crops. It is also a healthy playground for locals on occasion of the Lunar New Year.
