Results: Final Surfski and Waka Ama Series 25 Apr

Hi All,
Thanks for another really good turnout for the last race today, with 35 paddlers taking to the water.
Keep an eye on the for races coming up over the winter and early spring.
The 2010/2011 Season will start again at the end of September with races running through to the end of April.
Congrats to all who have supported the Series with 12 races over the last 7 months, you are making the Welly Paddlers Series very well known in our Region, around the Country and also around the World thanks to the Internet you also provide a great viewing to the public around the greater Wellington Area and I’m sure you all inspire others to get out and have ago as well……….that’s what racing in numbers does, it creates a great spectacle and you all get noticed.
A few Businesses and People I’d like to thank over the last 7 months who have supported us:

Sharlene Winiata for doing all the hard yards on the day, while I enjoy the leisurely stuff out on the water.
Most of all Thanks to you the paddlers, without your support we wouldn’t have the good races that we have.
