Waitemata's Kayak Krazy Race

The weather couldn’t have been better for the 2nd race in the series with clear blue skies and no wind. 

There was a good turn out for the 10k race with 22 paddlers in total, 6 paddlers for the 6km race and the Coxhead sisters for the 2km race. 

Andrew Mowlem and Sam Mayhew took the lead off the start and held it for the entire race. It came down to a sprint finish at the end with Andrew taking the win by a boat length over Sam Mayhew.
