Distance Paddling Selection Announcement

CRNZ would like to acknowledge the following athletes who will form the New Zealand team for the ICF Ocean Ski World Champs in France this September. 

Event Athletes
U23 Men:  Toby Brooke, Tim Waller
Open Men:  Andrew Mowlem, Cory Taylor
Open Women: Rachel Clarke, Teneale Hatton, Danielle McKenzie

NZ Team for 2019 Canoe Marathon World Champs

The following athletes will compete for NZ at the 2019 Marathon World Championship in China in October.

Event Athletes
Open Men K1 Andrew Mowlem
Masters K1 Garth Spencer, Vaughan Reed
Masters K2 Garth Spencer and Vaughan Reed

NZ is allowed up to 2 entries in each division for the Marathon World Champs, and up to 5 entries available at Ocean Ski Worlds for U18, U23 and Open men’s and women’s divisions (as well as unlimited entries for the masters’ events). Any paddlers who would like to compete in either event are welcome to express interest by emailing tom.ashley@canoeracing.org.nz. 

The CRNZ Distance Paddling Committee has set an objective that NZ sends full teams to compete at the Ocean Ski and Marathon World Champs within the next several years. We would like to promote all areas of our sport and acknowledge that distance paddling represents the majority of our participation base. We hope that the increased interest generated through initiatives such as the Darcy Price Series will translate into greater numbers competing, and also more opportunities/pathways for kiwi paddlers to participate and succeed internationally.
