Traditional Regatta on Sanur Beach

Traditional Regatta on Sanur BeachJukung or traditional boat transportation commonly used by fishermen to catch fish switched its function on Saturday (Sep 29). Those boats were involved in a very lively regatta on Sanur Beach. Fifty traditional regattas coming from five coastal fishing communities participated in jazzing up the agenda of the 7th Sanur Village Festival (SVF). Route of the race spread approximately 15 km from Segara Beach, Bali Beach to Semawang and returned to Segara Beach.

Those fishermen looked so enthusiastic to join the traditional regatta which was opened by the Head of Denpasar Culture Agency, Made Mudra, representing the Denpasar Mayor, accompanied by the Chairman of the Sanur Development Foundation, IB Sidharta and Chairman of the Board of Trustees IB. Gde Udiyana. Other than being witnessed by local people, the traditional regatta used to preserve the tradition of Sanur community was also witnessed by foreign and domestic tourists.

John Michael, a tourist from Australia, when met in Sanur expressed his admiration to watch the traditional regatta followed by fishermen from Sanur village. “I am delighted and amazed to watch the boat parade because to watch such similar attractions I should wait until next year,” said the man who liked to see cultural activities.

The competition had indeed become a special challenge for fishermen who usually hung on the beach. After passing through the waves of Sanur Beach, finally, the first winner came to I Gusti Oka Sulaksana, the second to Nyoman Darsa and the third to Mangku Metra. Meanwhile, the fourth to sixth position was respectively achieved by Wayan Suena, Nyoman Sidemen and Made Artika. Each champion was awarded a SVF trophy and motivation fund. (BTN/015)
