Event Update (8/04/2021)
Message from the event hosts: Kia ora paddlers, We are aware there is a bit of anxiousness regarding the weather for our event here in Cooks Beach this Sat 10th April. We are watching the forecast carefully as it is constantly changing. Our current forecast is showing 14 to 17 knots northerly and some showers. Cooks Bay due to its sheltered nature very rarely has unsafe conditions. At this stage all events are still going ahead but ALL W6’s must be prepared with skirts. We will be making a decision regarding J16s paddling by lunch time tomorrow. Our paddlers safety is our top priority and a course decision will be made on the morning with input from our safety boats and local coastguard.
