Barcos Rabelos Race - 2013

Uploaded: June 27, 2013


The Rabelo Boat Regatta, held every year, coinciding with the celebrations of the city of Porto - June 24 - these accomplishments give luster, joy and festivity of the city and our product: Port Wine. The Rabelo Boat Race, the most colorful and popular event of the Port Wine Brotherhood, where the parade Rabelo boats with sails raised, which exhibit the trade name of port to which they belong, sail committed to winning a fight in the first place. Beginning in the Cabedelo, near the mouth of the Douro River, ending in front of the House Sandeman, is always accompanied by a boat carrying about 300 guests and their Chancellery. At the end of the regatta, we proceed to the awards ceremony in front of the House Sandeman, animated by a folkloric, with a family photograph and a lunch or dinner party, among all participants and guests.
