Preparations for Sarawak Regatta going on schedule

PREPARATIONS for the Sarawak Regatta from July 30 to August 1 at the Kuching Waterfront are going on schedule.

Advisor to the organising committee Datuk Ose Murang said they were ready for the annual event and are expecting some 6,421 paddlers to take part.

Entry forms for the regatta are available from the Sarawak River Board at the Electra House and must be returned before July 9.
