Update Mana Super 6

A further update for this event:

Spot prize:

  • At the prize giving at the Supply Room at 5pm on race day, we will have a brandnew Tai Broadbill paddle to give away. But you gotta be at the prize giving to claim this prize, and we will pull a name out of the hat based on your teams’ rosters.

Weather and course:

  • The forecast is for Northerly conditions, so pending final confirmation, race course 1 (start at Paraparaumu Beach) is looking more likely at this stage.
  • Final confirmation on start location to come on Friday morning!
  • Regardless of this, all teams should meet at the relevant venue from about 8am, to give us plenty of time to rig canoes and do the safety checks.


  • Teams:
    • One of your team’s paddlers, please download the free SafeTRX app from your app store (Apple or GooglePlay)
  • When you have downloaded the app, set up your profile (please use your team’s name, rather than your personal name)
  • On race day go to “Group Activity”, and then enter the event code “MANA6”
  • Don’t forget to activate “continuous” tracking, otherwise we will only see you popping up every 5-10minutes.
  • Keep your phone on, and within a waterproof bag, during the race. We will check this at the canoe safety checks, every team will have to demonstrate that they have downloaded and activated the app, in order to pass the check.
