Bandar Seri Begawan, 26 August 2019 - Twenty Baiduri Bank Group's personnel competed in the Brunei Darussalam Regatta 2019, held in conjunction with His Majesty the Sultan and Yang Di-Pertuan of Brunei Darussalam’s 73rd Birthday celebration.

Pengiran Azaleen bin Pengiran Dato Paduka Hj Mustapha, Deputy CEO and Dorothy Newn, Head of Group Corporate Communications of Baiduri Bank were at the event to show their support to the team.  Speaking on the team’s participation in the Regatta, Pengiran Azaleen said, “The Brunei Regatta is traditionally a very popular water sport in Brunei.  As a leading local conventional bank, taking part in national events such as this is just one of our initiatives to show our support for the country in its efforts to promote its heritage.”

Muiz DP Hj Adnan, the Team Captain said, “As the underdog coming into this highly competitive sport against more experienced teams, our aim was to compete to the best of our abilities and to inculcate team spirit amongst our rowers who comprise personnel from a variety of different backgrounds.  Training together for several weeks helped us get to know each other better and strategize as a team.  We underwent several practice sessions in the evening after work.”

The event marked Baiduri Bank’s second year of participation in the private sector category for 20 rowers since the Regatta was reintroduced in 2012. The team successfully completed the 1000m race in eighth place.
