Description

Whaingaroa Whanau Hoe Waka Ama Club would like to invite everyone near and far to attend our 28th Annual Hoe Race.

We promise to make this Event an enjoyable one that will give you lasting memories of our picturesque West Coast Harbour and Beaches. This Event has lots to offer, for the newest of paddles to the heartiest of all as our conditions are forever changing and possibly challenging at times. However, we hope you and your Whanau have a fun filled day with plenty of sunshine, food, prizegiving and spot prizes.

Our Race Day has two Memorial Trophies to be awarded at the end of the day during Prizegiving.

  • Chrissy Herbert Memorial Trophy for the W6 Women's 20km Race, prize going to the first Women's team to cross the line in Race 2.
  • Piripi Kereopa Memorial Trophy for the W6 Men's 20km Race, prize going to the first Master Men's Team to cross the line in Race 3

We would like to thank all Whanau for participating and supporting our 28th Whaingaroa Hoe Race.
