Kia ora tatou,
With a change of season and daylight savings change, we have some important notices that you need to be aware of.
Daylight Savings – Change of Paddling Requirements
With the change of paddling we are now into night paddling for the evening bookings. Please ensure you observe the club rules:
Access to Canoes:
Please read the club rules regarding who has access to the double and single canoes. Quick reminders on this are:
For the singles and doubles travelling to regattas, the Pegasus singles and tempest doubles MUST be transported on suitable roof racks and in their travel bags.
We often use the shipping lane in the winter night time paddling: Quick tips:
Hopefully this covers the key highlights. All club members should know the club rules, so please ensure you read as a refresher.
Let’s have a safe and productive winter paddling season! Take care, paddle hard and be safe.
Tauranga Moana Outrigger Canoe Club
The sun came out for us to have a fabulous day for our Annual Awards, and Christmas function, held at Sulphur Point.
Check out the award winners on our Club Awards page. Here's some photos of the day, with Mauao overseeing our celebration, and the trophies awarded to recipients who were present on the day.
Thank you to everyone who contributed to putting on this wonderful occasion. Wishing all clubbies and whanaunga a blessed Christmas, the best for 2022, and safe and happy holidays making special memories with your loved ones.
We now have multiple positive covid cases in Tauranga and the wider BOP area.
Although we remain at Alert level 2, we need to ensure that we exercise all precautions to minimise the spread of covid and follow Ministry of Health guidelines.
If you are not vaccinated please consider not paddling in a group to protect yourself and your team mates at this time.

Kia ora mai ano waka whānau,
A big mihi out and thank you for the feedback cultural connections received around joining and or contributing to our roopu. It is much appreciated.
We now have new members and some awesome cultural ideas, which we`re looking forward to sharing with everyone very soon, to further enhance our cultural connections with our beautiful Tauranga Moana.
Ngā mihi nu nui whānau,
Ora (on behalf of CC roopu).
Hopefully you're all well and fit and keen to get paddling again! We've been here before but please spend 1 min reading to refresh yourself on the procedures for TMOCC under COVID Alert Level 2.
Level 2 limits group gathering to 100 persons outdoors and 50 people indoors.
Disinfectant Cleaning is now resuming
At the end of a training using the sprayer provided please disinfectant everything you touch including:
We already have a sign in sheet at the shed and everyone (each individual) who enters the shed or uses equipment needs to sign it – needs date, time, first and last name and what canoe you paddled in. Also note we have added a phone number column for the phone that is taken on the waka. We are asking that all waka take at least one communication device whilst out on the water. Phone bags are available and you can tuck the phone into the front or back of a lifejacket
Direct from the COVID Website:
Mandatory record keeping comes into effect from 11:59 pm on 7 September 2021.
Everyone aged 12 and over legally must keep a record of where they have been when visiting certain places so contact tracing can happen quickly. You must do this at all Alert Levels.
The club has a COVID tracer code on the door and table.
A really important part of level 2 and 1 is contact tracing. If we do have a positive case, we need to be able to quickly and correctly trace all contacts.
Please remember all training's MUST be booked via Liz Webster (Bookings Officer)- well in advance (not 1 hour before or 5mins before or after ) - this is also part of our contact tracing
