Not everyday you get to paddle past Kirrbilly House, Luna Park, Opera House or under the Harbour Bridge. 90+ crews had that opportunity last weekend in The Hawaiian Airlines Sydney Harbour Challenge and what a spectacle it was, even the Weather Gods couldn't dampen the spirits.
Attracting a huge international and local field of over 80 crews, New Zealand's Premiere Outrigger Canoe Event held annually on the beautiful Hauraki Gulf Auckland, is a must do for the battle hardened paddler. Easy on the pocket, well organised and a variety of competitive races over 3 days ticks all the boxes.
Day2 it's BOP Style Racing, a technical race showcasing surfing skills on an M shaped course. Who has the tecnical skills and fitness to excel in these challenging shore break conditions? Who will snatch the "Dash 4 Cash"? Tired arms dig for buried rewards in the King Troys Treasure Hunt.
