Some of you training at the club may have noticed the new club trailer. We are completing some final work on this and are looking forward to attending regattas. A huge thank you to Steve Hill and Gaylene Macfarlane for their tireless efforts to deliver this. Also to Lawrence Smith for his design assistance and advice. Thank you also to Karoha for blessing our new trailer on the 20th of March 2021.
Our Old Trailer has been sold to club member; Corrina Gage. We wish our trailer well and hope that it serves Corrina and Kim well for years to come.
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.
