Welcome to the Hoe Tonga Paddler Series 2020, designed to attract new paddlers to our sport, and to enable paddlers and teams to race during the winter season
Races consist of a long course (12-18km) for senior teams, and a shorter course (6-9km) for junior and novice (1st year paddling) teams. The Series is overseen by Hoe Tonga, but each individual race is hosted and organised by member clubs or event organisers.
As in previous years, the series is big on participation and we will have again a range of spot prizes, including a brand new paddle.
Please note: Any canoes with visible damage or cracks will be considered not seaworthy and will not pass safety checks.
Please note that race details from the full pack is subject to change. Please keep an eye on specific race information.
