II Regional Championship of “Botes Baleeiros” in Santa Maria

The II Regional Championship of “Botes Baleeiros” took place in the Santa Maria island. 12 vessels from all the islands of the Azores, except Corvo, compete in this event that gathers more than a hundred participants.

“The Azores are one of the world places where the local whaling tradition and culture have persisted with some pride. Though whales aren’t hunt anymore, most of the whaling heritage has been maintained and restored since 1997 for cultural, touristic and sport purposes, as the whaling boat rowing regattas and sailing are a strong tradition.”
