Kia ora whānau

Thank you everyone for coming along to support the annual Regional Sprints. 

What a beautiful day at the Lake with almost 250 registrations, our biggest entry to date.

Highlight was certainly seeing over 30 midgets take the water and show us what our future champions will be.

So proud of our babies and all our whānau for participating in our annual event.

Sunday we saw many back out on the water training 7am for Nationals 6 weeks away.

Attached are the Results, Rankings and Quota from the weekend. Any queries you have can be directed tovesna_radonich@hotmail.com.

NOTE: W1 paddlers will be loaded up onto Waka Ama website by Thursday this week. No changes can be made after that time.
