Hauraki Series 2020 Race 4 - The final race
What an awesome day of racing here on the coast of Tīkapkapa Moana! Thank you to all the waka whānau who came to support and in turn empowered our moana. She appreciated the whanaungatanga energy and wairua you gifted to her as you set out to race upon her. There was a little bit of opportunity to play with some bumps, a few battles at the turn and on the finish line, lots of harti mahi on the water and to finish up a well-deserved kai. Thank you for all your emails received last night and the feedback given yesterday.
The Series is brought to you by our collective waka whānau - Te Āputa Tira Hoe, Whangamatā, Whitianga and Hauraki Waka Ama. Each venue is unique and gives you a taste of our coastal paradise within Te Tara o Te Ika a Māui.
Special mention to our volunteer whānau whom without none of this would be possible. Our Boat Co-ordinator and the Boaties, Safety Team, Photographers, Admin Teams, Parking Teams and the all important ringawera in the kitchen. No mussel fritters or chowder without their talents!
A huge thank you to our Spot Prize Supporters Manaaki Made, Canyonz, Māori Spartan – You guys rock! We are proud to support our local whānau who are working hard to create awesome ventures for the kaupapa. Please make sure you go and like their pages and don’t forget to take photos of you in their gear and tag them in it.
Thank you to our sponsors for this final race – Pak n Save Thames, Hunting and Fishing Thames, Thames Coromandel District Council and of course our spot prize supporters.
