There may be an opportunity for both teams to have a training prior to Nationals and it will be the role of the appointed Team Captain/s to organise and notify paddlers of any training. The race itself is scheduled as a straight final at Nationals and it is the responsibility of the Team Captain to arrange paddlers seating in the W12 on the day if no prior training run has been undertaken.
Hoe Tonga will supply a uniform (shirt only) to both teams.

2016 AOTEAROA MĀORI SPORTS AWARDS ANNOUNCES OLYMPIC & WORLD-CLASS FINALISTS » māori sports awards
Waka Ama is represented
WWACC are holding a hangi fundraiser on Saturday 3rd December.
All tickets will be presold and paid for the week before the hangi for those that are interested we will make contact for our club bank account details.
The hangi will consist of 2 meat, potatoes, pumpkin, carrots and stuffing at a cost of $6.00 each.
Contact can be made through myself or club page
Te Ringa Miti Tai Heke will be hosting/oraganising the Waka Ama events.
A reminder for the clubs please; the skipper of a vessel travelling down Evans Bay at night came close to running down a waka ama because they couldn’t see them
I don’t have the exactly details, but thought it is probably timely to remind clubs that they need to have a clearly visible all-round white light if they are on the water either early morning or in the evening.
