The Sarawak Regatta 2008 is now being held at the Kuching Waterfront from the 1st of August till the 3rd of
August.I find the Kuching River at this meandering point to be very suitable for holding regattas because it is very strategically sited i.e. next to the city centre, broad size ,very calm waters and excellent public facilities and amenities within its immediate surrounds. Futhermore the Waterfront with its park like settings especially with its huge trees provide much shade and picnic grounds for the rural visitors who made long journeys to reach the Kuching Waterfront area. However, could it be that the designers of the 'sampan' below may have gone overboard with their message of 'Peace'?.
