Maree Burnett, Secretary General of the New Zealand Canoeing Federation said she was delighted to have five of the Federation’s canoe discipline organisations working together to create what will be a week-long paddling extravaganza. 

“The canoeing programme at World Masters Games 2017 will showcase to New Zealander’s and our international visitors what a truly diverse and exciting experience canoeing can offer paddlers and spectators alike. We’re thrilled to be part of this world class event .”

A working committee consisting of key people from each of these canoe disciplines is already in place and working collaboratively with World Masters Games 2017 to ensure that all paddlers will enjoy a quality experience on and off the water.
