Get ready for the last race of the series this year on 8 September at Mana (Ngati Toa Domain), run by Jörn and Tanya.
The weather forecast is looking a bit mixed, so we won’t know the course until Sunday morning, but expect windy conditions. In any case, we are planning to have two courses, one long course (10km), and one short course (5km). Note that the long course is intended for experienced paddlers, the short course is intended for SUP, less stable craft and novice paddlers.
Depending on conditions, the long course will preferably head to the ‘Point’ or around the reef, the short course will likely be set within the inlet (eg Mana to Browns Bay and return, or Mana to Onepoto and return).
As conditions may be challenging, we remind novice paddlers to assess their own capability before entering.
A friendly reminder that the cost per adult paddler is $5, the cost per junior paddler is $2, irrespective of craft. This means that the entry cost for a W6 is $30 for adults and $12 for juniors. For further details click here.
Rego opens at 9am, the race start is at 10am.
Finally, please stick around after the race for our prize-giving. A huge thanks to Fergs Kayaks for a range of spot prizes, worth thousands of $. You gotta be at the last race to take them home, so don’t miss out!
