This event is a must not miss! Challenging! Loads of fun! With a hint of rich culture and warmth! Portage Crossing Canoe Club has joined Oceanrider and we are proud to bring this one to you all, once again!

The Great Manukau Harbour always provides a challenge! With breathtaking scenery and a rich cultural heritage, this body of water is certainly a must to explore. The race name has changed but the unique roots of the race remain the same. The race was cancelled last year due to Covid. We are hoping we can smash this one through! Fingers crossed! It’s going to be an awesome day! With a new enthusiast team with more hands on deck, more cooks in the kitchen for the Kai, time keeping systems, lots of blinging medals, our gorgeous trophies and some generous spot prizes from our loyal sponsors. Its a race to include all our paddling whanau from SUP, Outrigger canoe and Surf Ski entrants. Hosted by Portage Crossing and Oceanrider.
