Online Entries


Please find attached the draft lane draw for Saturday 
Please note race start times, but do not rely that these will be on time - as we will carry on regardless of the schedule.
We will need help/volunteers on the day to:
  • Unload and rig the 6 x W6 waka from 7.30am (no racing can proceed until this is done);
  • Waka loading on the beach;
  • Race starting/spotting;
  • Race timing;
  • Admin and Rego;
  • General First Aid.
Please contact Craig below if you can help with any of the above, and state your preference.
We also need help at 7am for approximately 5 people to help load 2 x W6 at the Northern Bulldogs Rugby League Club in Kaiapoi. If you can help with this, please also comment below.
FINALLY - Please also note that due to the new Traffic Light Framework - there is no limit on people onsite, but we will require all competitors, spectators and volunteers to scan their My Vaccine Pass.

Entry Details 
Entries now close on Monday 22nd of November - so please get your entries in ASAP - which will help with our organisation and planning. 

All entries must be done by your club rep via the WANZ system, and must also be paid for prior to the event. Clubs will be billed if fees are not received. 

We encourage those that are looking to compete at Nationals and Worlds in 2022 to ensure you do your entries for these as well (which close 13 December) - as we will prioritise those who need to qualify for these events through our Regional W1 races (as we may have to limit entries to comply with Covid restrictions) 

This will also apply to W6 crews who are entered for Nationals and Worlds. 

Finally, for those who may be restricted in attending the event due to Covid-19 - please still enter and we will look to allow those who medalled/finalled at the 2021 Nationals in their W1 division - to have a guaranteed W1 spot for 2022. 

This may also apply to Regional W12 spots - but again please ensure you enter the W1 250 dash if you want to be considered. 

A final decision on the above will be made at the TWoA AGM on 24 November 2021. 

In summary:
* Please note our Covid-19 Requirements for the event (All to be fully vaccinated, 100 person limit, likely need to limit entries and spectators). 
* Please get your entries is ASAP, and by 22 November at the latest (done through your club rep and all paid up ahead of the event). 
* If you are unlikely to be able to make the event due to Covid-19 restrictions, please contact us, but please still enter the events you wish to qualify in.
