Alappuzha With nearly 80 boats participating Kerala is all set to host the most applauded Nehru Boat Race here on Saturday

Even though it was earlier stated that 78 boats of various shapes and sizes will take part, the number crossed 100, of which 24 were snake boats.

"Chiramel Thottukadavan" of New Drops Boat Club, Kainakari defeated "Abraham Monnu Thaikkal" in the veppu "B" grade category.

Last year's victor Karichal boat club, which hit the bull's eye 15 times, will be trying hard to retain the trophy against strong contenders, including Payipaadan, Vellamkulangara, Gabriel chundan, Nadubhagom chundan, Jawahar Thayankari, Anari, Cheruthana, Devas, Mahadevan and Sree Ganesh and Karuvatta.

For women participants, the contest was opened up in the Thara and Kettuvalom categories. The failure of the starting system delayed the race by more than an hour. The chundans (snakeboats) stand ready on the clear waters of the Punnamada Lake in Alappuzha, their rowers bursting with barely contained energy.
