The year started with some outstanding results at the 25th Active Post Waka Ama Sprint Nationals held at Karapiro Lake, Cambridge.
Our Team Riders and teams had some great performances representing their regions and clubs on the water:
Maori Kava Tere dominated the U19 division in all V1 racing taking out the 250m and 500m finals. A highlight was having 4 team riders (Ash taking 3rd, Josh & Marcel a very close 4th/5th) out of 8 finalists.
Performances by the crews saw a marked step up since last year, with points to prove and legacies to maintain.
Tui Tonga’s crews took away some valuable experience and continue to build strong paddlers and spirit.
