We have received 50% funding from NZCT towards a new mahimahi canoe and 3 x sets of W6 spray-skirts.
There is a huge backlog on mahimahi orders and we expect Moana Nui to start construction in September 2021 with delivery before the end of the year.
Out of the funding one set of replacement skirts have been purchased for Wairoa. Tataramoa's skirts will be replaced and the final set going to the new canoe.
Our Cultural Connections Committee are currently working on a name for our new waka.
A fine day was had on Valentines Day this year! We wish to extend our thanks to all of the club involved in helping. We managed to make approximately a $3000 profit for the club. This goes toward our operational costs, keeping our membership fees down and delivering good quality equipment. Thanks for your help everyone!
