Boat racing on the sea

TTH.VN - According to the elders in Phuong Dien village, Phu Dien commune (Phu Vang), boat racing on the sea festival was born around the 17th century - the time when the village was established. This festival has been preserved and organized each 3 years until now.

It is not only a joyful and exciting festival to show off localite's boating skills, to do exercises, as well as to honor excellent rowers, but also a professional spiritual activity to pay tribute to the ancestors. This is also a chance to pray for a smooth sailing, favorable fishing and prosperous life...

Therefore, although very excited, these fishermen do not focus too much on winning or losing. For them, it is a festival for relatives and clans to reunite and relax after long fishing trips on the sea. So, even though winning the Offering prize - the most important one, the rewards for the racing teams are mainly spiritual cheers.

Having the opportunity to experience and cheer for this festival, Hoang Phuoc, the author, captures the joyful and lively moments when the rowers and fans enjoy the race.
