The perfect stroke in rowing is an ideal combination of maximum coordination and power, of individual and collective movement. The Lebu are the original inhabitants of the Dakar peninsula and largely live with and off the ocean. Several times during the year, the different Lebu villages come together to see who has the best rowing team. In the midst of the bustle of an African capital city, the competition is a celebration of their traditions, it unites the villages, and the rowers are revered by their peers, especially the children who dream of being one of them. In November 2019, the rowing team of Ngor village won the competition in Mbao.
