Seven or so Trata’s (it’s a bit mayhemic) sailed off into the village at about 3pm today. A good showing with strong ships and able crews. This year the cultural association made a strong effort to encourage participation and their energy paid off. Crews worked intensively the last few days to make their boats seaworthy, able to withstand the bumping and grinding as they are carried and dragged through the town.
