“Cold Kiwi Series” 

This is a paddle series to see everyone through winter – 7 km to 8 km in distance…….events approx every 3 weeks……locations Wellington Hataitai Beach or Cobham Drive Marina – Mana Dolly Vardon Park or Onepoto – Petone Honiana Te Puni Reserve or Sladden Park.

The events are Regional events, as well as being for locals…. all on Sunday mornings at 10 am…..gives Coasters, Wairarapa people and anyone from further afield more time to travel and less of an early wake up.

The aim is to start and finish at a sheltered venue where everyone is out of the teeth of any cold winds, the courses will be based around the shorelines………..it is winter after all……it’s about working smarter not harder !

The final venue for these events is announced 24 hours before each event and we track the weather from the Monday of each event to give you an indication of where the likely options are which helps many organise craft transportation to the event.
