Annual Barco Rabelo boat race

Annual Barco Rabelo boat race on the Douro river. Click to enlarge.

A story behind: Early afternoon. A strong harsh light shining along the Douro River. The barco rabelos, now only a tourist attraction, are old wooden boats which once carried the port wine from the upper Douro river to city of Porto. Each Port wine producer still owns such a boat. 
Each year on the 25th of June they sail and race from the mouth of the Douro river up 5 kilometers to the center of the old town.
