What a great finish to the Series, with 20 teams in attendance. Te Ringa Miti Tai Heke Waka Ama Club hosted this event, and did a fantastic job.
Weather conditions were excellent, albeit with strong winds. The river provided an excellent race venue, with some challenges for steerers to find a good line to avoid the wind and current.
A big thank you to our sponsors of various spot prizes for the Series: The Sprig&Fern Tavern in Petone, Takeaway@Churton, and Tai Paddles. Spot prizes included two new paddles!
Two trophies were given out:
- Hikoikoi L Plates won the Series in the Novice/Junior category, with 34 points.
- Hikoikoi Open Men won the Series in the Senior category, with 22 points.
These trophies will be up for grabs again next year.
