Tuna E Hoe Ana 2024
9th-10th February 2024 – Lake Rotoiti
A unique race, organised by Maitahi OCC, in the beautiful surrounds of the Nelson Lakes National Park. We welcome paddlers from the South Island and beyond, and as well as fantastic competitive paddling for rangatahi, novices and all age groups in OC6, singles and doubles, it’s a tremendous social occasion.
The whole club mobilises to put as many crews as possible on the water as well as providing volunteers to run the event. The prize-giving dinner at Rotoiti Hall on Saturday afternoon is always a great finale to the weekend.
Race pack will be available in October
How to enter
We have a new way of entering the race that we started last year via an online form. It will be available in October/November
