Description

The Rotohoe Series is an annual series of open-water waka ama races held on several of the Te Arawa lakes. It caters to all abilities and age groups: novice and experienced, junior (J19) and senior kaihoe, providing racing opportunities to kaihoe who want to build their paddling experience as well as an opportunity for competitive kaihoe to test themselves against others in preparation for national and international races. Rotohoe is also about keeping ourselves well and being in connection with our waters.

2024 marks the 20th year of the Rotohoe Series. We acknowledge our tuakana club Te Aurere who started the Rotohoe as well as our other tuakana club, Hei Matau, who also helped carry this kaupapa. In light of this milestone we will be looking to give out special taonga to our kaihoe this year. Watch this space!! We also look forward to hearing kōrero from kaihoe and whānau who have attended the Rotohoe over the past 20 years!

2024 will be the 20th Anniversary of the running of the Rotohoe Series, established in 2004.
