Mauao Ocean Hoe Series - Race 2 - Saturday 30 October 2021

Stoked to provide you with the opportunity to race, to paddle, to gather as an individual or a team to get some time in on the MOANA here in Tauranga Moana (Mount Maunganui)

We invite all those clubs and paddlers currently in L2 Covid areas to join Hoe Aroha Whanau o Mauao for the 2nd race of the Mauao Ocean Series. We also extend further outreach to those clubs who may be sitting on the fence, and may need a little push or encouragement to get a team together, hire a waka or bring one through. COME join us!!!

We have a novice race for those new to the ocean environment and want to clock up some more experience or an 18km race for those who love to get some distance or endurance under their belt. For those who have their own W1/OC1 or W2/OC2 we have a race for you too.

However, do not delay, we are operating on a first in first served basis. We are closing registrations to the first 80 registered in each race. Race 1 - 80max, Race 2 80max. This race is advertised to paddlers and managers only due to COVID restrictions. Spectators are advised to watch the event from any other areas that may be visible around the Mount.
