Nearly 400 participants from 9 racing teams gathered: Thuy Duong, Thuy Phuong, Thuy Thanh, Thuy Chau, Thuy Luong, Thuy Tan, Phu Bai, Thuy Phu, and Duong Hoa. The teams competed in 1 Cung race, 1 Pha race and 7 Tien races; among them, the Cung race and Pha race followed a 3-round, 6-turn format, while the Tien races followed a 2-round, 4-turn format.

This year, besides the enthusiastic supports to motivate teams like Thuy Duong, Thuy Tan, Phu Bai, and Thuy Chau to challenge the top 4 teams - Thuy Thanh, Thuy Phu, Thuy Luong, and Thuy Phuong, all eyes of the audience were on the performances of the newcomer Duong Hoa team, participating in this competition for the first time.

In addition to its significance for praying for favorable weather and abundant harvests, maintaining peace in the homeland, the organization of the racing event in Huong Thuy Town also aims to preserve and promote the local traditional sport.

With this goal in mind, after being held at Vuc River (of Thuy Phuong and Thuy Chau wards) and Nhu Y River (of Thuy Thanh commune), this year's race took place at Loi Nong River (Residential Group 6 of Thuy Phuong Ward). In the following years, the event venue could be organized in other communes or wards.
