Long Distance Nationals 2021

Story Thumb

The Board of Waka Ama New Zealand met recently and considered the issue of the cancellation of the recent 2020 Long Distance Nationals.

Due to the unprecedented nature of COVID-19, the resulting cancellation of the 2020 Long Distance Nationals and the impact this has had on the Te Waka o Aoraki region as hosts; The Board of Waka Ama New Zealand has made the decision to push out the hosting dates of the Long Distance Nationals by 1 year. It will also push the Waka Ama NZ hosting year out from 2025 to 2027 to complete the rotation cycle. 

This will mean that Te Waka o Aoraki will become the host of the 2021 Long Distance Nationals – The date is subject to confirmation with the office of Waka Ama New Zealand.  As soon as the date and venue booking is confirmed we will advise the membership.

The new Regional hosting cycle for Long Distance Nationals is as per below:
