After reaching the finish line at the Sarawak International Dragon Boat Regatta (SIDBR), the boats would make their way back to the pier.

Even though the race may have ended, the paddlers were still riding high on emotions and adrenaline.

Some were obviously exhausted, others relaxed while a few even put up a smile for the crowd watching from the Kuching Waterfront.
