Bancarera becomes SarBay thriller

GUMASA, Glan, Sarangani (June 3, 2016) - Sarangani Bay Festival, iconically known as SarBay, has been a summer anthem here in the South, or if not, in the entire country already.

And whenever there is SarBay, Bancarera is definitely an event to expect.

Bancarera is a full-throttle race between motorized "bancas" or small fishing boats.

It is organized by Bombo Radyo Philippines and has been going on for years already.

In Mindanao, Bancarera is being held in Davao during Kadayawan Festival; General Santos City every Tuna Festival; and here in Sarangani for SarBay Fest.

GLAN, Sarangani (June 3, 2016) – Swordfishes and dolphins crossed paths with iron lunged Sarbay Swim-Across-the-Bay contestants Friday (June 3).

The exotic sea creatures seemed as if they wanted to join the 15-kilometer swim.

Jeboy Villar of the GenSan Gliders (4th placer) immediately shifted to backstroke from freestyle for fear that he might bump into approximately 10 dolphins playfully swimming along him.

The dolphins roughly measure a meter and a half each, according to Villar.
