Fast paddling in this boat race in Manila, Philippine Islands.
Full titles read: "The Phillippine's [sic]"Boat Race" - has thrills all it's own... losers have to go overboard!"
Manila, Philippine Islands.
Various shots show several boats (they look a bit like kayak canoes) being paddled rapidly along a river in Manila; one crew are up to their necks in water - presumably their boat has sunk! Other crews are seen turning their boats over to capsize themselves - I guess they know already that they haven't won. It looks like good fun!
