Another good turn out today, with 11 teams competing on the short course, and 10 teams on the long course.
Some challenging conditions out there today, with a cool 20-25knot Southerly whipping up the course. Going to and from Titahi Bay made it more challenging for the junior and novice teams, but far more interesting than just slogging it out in the tidal flats. Coming back from Titahi Bay, there were some nice little runners to practice those surfing skills.
Teams from Otaikokako and Otaki are in the top positions for the most points in their divisions (senior, novice, junior) but it’s not quite decided yet.
Some videos and photos will be posted on the hoe tonga facebook page. A big thank you again to our sponsors: Naomi Brookings from One Agency, Compass Health, and Tai Paddles, and the numerous volunteers making the day possible, including but not limited to the support boat drivers, canoe checkers, registration desk officials, finish and startline officials, and cake bakers.
See you at the final event in Whanganui in three weeks time.
