"BANCA RACE" Dumaguete City Local Custom Tip by moonlighting
Dumaguete City Local Customs: 4 reviews and 2 photos
If you're island inhabitants, what is the perfect race to hold during fiestas/festivals?
A BOAT RACE!
These are motorized boats, powerful mini-boats. One small boat, with its motor on, must be held on by by 4-6 big guys. And when the "go" signal is given, off the boats go, and with so much speed and noise, you'd think they are faster than jet skis.
I've seen dragon boat races. But boy, this island banca race is more fun! It was during one of our safety stops from diving that we witnessed this. And our wacky male divemates were betting for their own boats.
