In last year's SeaFair at Harbor Square, I got to board and tour a private yacht, watched a dragon boat competition and sailboats and cruising the waters while chilling in across the Manila Bay waters. I was one of the first bloggers who witnessed it all when it first happen.
This year, the Seafair will move to SM By The Bay to have more activities than just showcasing different boats. The bayside of SM Mall Of Asia is the best place for outdoor games. At Sands By The Bay, Seafair will hold it's first Beach Volleyball, and Beach Tennis. Just for clarity, beach tennis is different from badminton and their rackets are called paddle bats.
The grounds is not the only place where there is fun. You will get to see the first Seafair Boat Show Poker Run. Unlike a traditional speed boat race, it has a twist. Here is the description of this activity:
Participants meet at a pre-arranged point, and pick up details of their route and the stops they need to make. Each participant is given a score card which will be filled in as they progress along the route. At each designated stop, the participants draw a card at random. The card drawn or dealt is recorded on each participant's score card/tally sheet, and the winner of the event is the participant who makes the best five-card poker hand at the end of the event.
As the owners showcase their yachts, SeaFair also promotes the obligation to the marine environment which is why they partnered with WWF for more campaigns. The SeaFair will also have it's first Helicopter Tour to give the guests a bird's eye view of the Metro.
As the sun goes down, the night is just starting to heat up as some boats will held parties while cruising along the Bay like what we had aboard the M/Y Shanty. The Bay grounds is not gonna be left behind as it will get wet and wild with a Foam Party.
