Hauraki Summer Series 2017 - Race 4 (Sanctioned)

Venue: Whangamata
Date: Sat 22nd Apr 2017
Distance: 10km-15km

Te Whanau Waka Ama o Whangamata would like to thank those that came to support us in our event. It was a beautiful day for travellers to Whangamata with Tangaroa coughing up just enough wind and swell to keep paddlers’ adrenalin up. They were able to enjoy a bit of the scenery around the back of Hauturu then getting barrelled coming out the top of 3rd island. Little bit of cross wind off the ama coming back in set everyone up for a nice ride in on some waves. 


The trek out to the pinnacles served a good race for the more adventurous. Some great times set by all. We look forward to a change of course next year sharing the coastline we take for granted sometimes. A bonus early finish saw teams relaxing and taking in the sun before hitting the road. Thanks everyone that took part. Photos on our facebook page. Te Whanau Waka Ama o Whangamata.
