Again practicing for the famous Nan Boat Race 2016 in Nan

Yesterday afternoon it was time again for practising for the boat races that will start next month. I was at the walking area near the main bridge in Nan city. There were about 6 boats. Each boat between 30 and 40 people in it. It seems that each boat has 2 boatsman (but there can only be 1 captain).

Going upstream it almost looks like they are not moving. They really have to go full power to go fast. Keeping balance, going the right direction and making speed. Many things to control. For more information about the beautiful Nan province see Traveling 2 Nan - Thailand.
