It was good to see women's participation, they were pretty serious, not just a show piece, equally well sponsored and good prize money, don't know how much, lots of other prizes. I was surprised to see some European and American participants, perpahs been there months in advance preparing for the big day in torrential rain.

The race took place far from where I was standing, So could not take pictures of the race.

The team with Europeans and Americans won the race, They were cheered by the crowd as they went on a victory lap.

Yay! The Europian/American women pulled it off! It must have been a great weekend.

hehe, i bet the European/American women must be top class white-water rafters in their countries :D and also, Poms, maybe it's because Western women are more physically fit than our Indian women. That's cuz Indian women hardly get any outdoor physical activity to perform; their lives are just embroiled in looking after their home and family. I love the team spirit though; lovely pics ! *hugs*

Yes it was Frida, every one was having a party, it was like boat race day in England as described by PG Wodehouse, Wooster steals a policeman's helmet. Cops were all over but they were not spoiling the party.

Thats true sweet Booey! I don't know when women's participation started perhaps not very long ago, have to ask e2dees. I was happy to see them rowing away, there were only 3 boats. Hope it will encourage other women to participate. It is an expensive affair. The government should take interest.

WOW! Speechless. Looks amazing. Wet but amazing.

I was surprised to see women's involvement. I too hope more will participate. Great photos!

Rauf said...

Yes it was pouring cats and dogs FOUR DINNERS, all were wet, but having great fun.

There were only 3 boats Ruth, hope to see more next year. Its a male dominated event. Getting a boat and organising is a very expensive affair. There will be more sponsorship in the coming years Ruth.
