1 – 3 April 2016 – The most anticipated event of the year – the ‘Baleh-Kapit Raft Safari 2016’ annual rafting competition held along the Rejang River from 1 – 3 April 2016, it was the 20th Baleh-Kapit Raft Safari since its inception in 1996.
This year saw three newbie teams from CMS led by Dato’ Richard Curtis to compete in the 2-day rafting competition organised by the Tourism Task Group of Kapit. It was an interesting adventure for everyone as they got to experience a challenging race that took competitors through swift river and its enchanting rainforest alongside.
‘CMS ROARS’ definitely represented the fighting spirit of the teams as they rowed down the Kapit River, securing 5th (CMS Roars 1) and 6th placings
(CMS Roars 2), and the only ladies team, CMS Roars 3, the 5th position.
It was truly an enriching and remarking experience as not only did the teams displayed their “roaring” spirits, it certainly helped to develop a strong bonding between them. “The end result of the rafting competition was not important, what mattered most was the team work that counts”, concluded Dato’ Richard at the prize-giving ceremony.
CMS also sponsored RM20,000.00 to the event organiser.
