We know that this has effected many of our own Waka Ama events this weekend but if we do our part in staying home and off the water we will be able to return to the water sooner. Our priority is always for the health and safety of our paddlers, their whanau and wider community. So please no paddling for this period of time.

Please note that the Tai Tonga event Ngā Mata o te Ariki Tāwhirimātea has been tentatively postponed with a new date of September 11th pending sanctioning.

The Coaching Courses that were going to be held on Sunday 22nd August in Wellington are also cancelled. However Waka Ama NZ have got a couple of online coaching clinics with Corinna Gage via zoom this weekend. Please see the information below:
