The Kahawai Paddling Championships – a brand new Canoe Racing NZ event designed to develop the next generation of paddlers – will be launched on Saturday May 8.
The inaugural competition, which will take place on Takapuna Beach, is open to all paddlers of intermediate or high school age.
All equipment and craft will be provided by organisers and the event will adopt the new Kahawai competition – see more below.
It is hoped the competition will attract paddlers from a range of backgrounds; sprint, surf lifesaving, ocean or multisport.
Entry and further details will follow in due course.
