Last Sunday, the 2017 Cross-Strait (Jimei) Dragon Boat Cultural Festival was wrapped as the Mr. CaNoe Club from Taiwan won the Jiageng Cup and the Jimei University Women Dragon Boat Team took the Jingxian Cup.
The Mr. CaNoe Club is the first Taiwanese dragon boat team that has gained the Jiageng Cup since the race was held 11 years ago. It is the third time that the club came to Jimei for the competition. In 2015, they lost only by one second to a team from Shunde in South China’s Guangdong province. This year, they not only won the men’s 500-meter race, but also won the 4th China Dragon Boat Tug-of-War Open (Jimei Station).
The girls from Jimei University took three champions in the event, including women’s 200-meter race, women’s 500-meter race, and the Jingxian Cup.
