Steinlager Vaka Eiva Paddling Festival - Cook Islands

Thursday, October 09, 2008 / Posted by Rambo / comments (0)

The 5th annual Steinlager Vaka Eiva Paddling Festival kicks off on the14th November for 8 days of racing and fun. Around 600 paddlers from Aotearoa, Australia, Tahiti, Hawaii, Samoa and Guam will battle it out in the OC1 & V6 Avana Iron Challenge, the Sprints at stunning Muri Lagoon together with some fun & games & the world famous ‘pop the ama’ competition, the U19 Junior 10km & 15km races & the headline acts – the Women’s Round Raro “Pacific Paddle” relay race & the Men’s Round Raro ‘Pacific Cup’ relay race, also Junior U14’s and U16’s will officially compete this year.

This is the perfect event to bring the family and enjoy a paddling holiday and still compete in hard core OC racing. Nappy’s back again, Kai will be there as as well as all the regulars that have made this event a success.

I won’t be paddling as I’ve been officially engaged by the Cook Islands Canoeing Association to capture all the action in HD from Jet Ski, Media Boats, in water, on land and of course as usual, every thing that moves will have a GoPro Camera mounted on it, including 3 new, just released 5mp “wide angle” GoPros. Paddlers will be able to view Video highlights of the days events on the Big Screen at Trader Jacks Bar & Grill that night, as well as the usual still slide-show popular with last years crowd. And for those considering going to Vaka Eiva next year, online footage will be viewable some time shortly after the event.

Harvie Allison’s much sort after “Vaka Eiva Calendar is back, proceeds from the calendar going towards developing Junior Outriggers in The Cook Islands. Photos on the Calendar this year
