The Rowers Club Philippines (RCP) Sea Dragons bagged the gold medal for the 500m International Premier Women's Small Boat category.

They bested a field of 20 local and international teams from Malaysia, China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Canada, Australia, Kenya, Singapore and the US.

Aside from the victory of women's crew, RCP's Mixed Small Boat team also won two bronze medals in the 500m International Premier and 500m Inter Nations Mixed Small Boat categories.
