Following on from the success of last year’s New Zealand Virtual Surfski Championships, Canoe Racing NZ is set to launch the New Zealand Virtual Paddling Championships next month.
The exciting new event will be open to all paddle craft (kayak, surf ski, waka ama, SUP etc) as all entrants try to complete the 12km distance (3km for U18 paddlers) as quickly as possible.
Times can be recorded for the championships between the dates of March 1-31. Paddlers can enter as many times as they wish and spot prizes will also be on offer.
For surf ski paddlers, the event has the additional carrot of forming the penultimate round of the 2020-21 Darcy Price Series.
More details to follow in the countdown to the event.
