This year’s Baram Regatta will take place on August 25 to 27 and is expected to continue to attract both domestic and foreign participants.
The Regatta will take place at Batang Baram in Marudi, about 43km from Miri City in, Northern Sarawak.
The “Baram Open” race allows international and local participants to participate in racing down the Baram River.
Regaining some of its original provisions, the “Baram Closed” race is solely for the Baram folk to compete against each other, which traces the history of the Regatta from over 100 years ago.
The bi-annual event has been held since 1899, in conjunction with the Savage Peace Conference that led to peace among the different tribes and communities in the Baram area.
