Kiwis love to be in, on and around the water. Paddling in all it’s forms has been part of our culture since our early beginnings.
Canoe Racing, incorporating Sprint, Marathon and Surf Ski paddling, embodies that connection to the water by offering both racing and recreational paddling opportunities across the country.
We have a proud history of international success at the highest levels of the sport and we are committed to building on that success. Equally we want to encourage paddling for the sheer enjoyment – incorporating racing and social events and building a community of paddling enthusiasts.
The 2021 New Zealand Virtual Paddling Championships is open for business throughout the entire month of March and times can be officially logged from Monday (March 1). So to whet the appetite for the exciting new event, we give you ten good reasons why you should get involved.
