Maitahi Christmas paddle and Social

Saturday 18th December has been set aside as the club’s Christmas gathering. We realise that the week before the big day might not work for some, but there’s not really an ideal date this time of year and the previous week is Regional Sprints at Lake Pegasus which will take a reasonable number of paddlers away for the weekend.

So, without wanting to tempt fate and the weather gods we are going to try to reprise the plan we originally had for the cancelled Waka te Tasman weekend. We will have a club paddle over to Moturoa-Rabbit Island and back.

To make the paddle available to as many club members as possible, particularly those who do not want to paddle 22km (with a nice break in the middle), we will offer a return trip and a one way trip. There will be some minor logistics involved in swapping paddlers over at Moturoa-Rabbit Island. Please accept the relevant invitation on Teamer, either RI Single or RI Return.

When we get back to the marina (in blazing sunshine of course) there will be a BBQ and whatever refreshments you choose to bring. Christmas hats are encouraged for the paddle. As ever, if anyone has any suggestions let Tony know on [email protected]

Its never too late to start paddling waka ama

We always welcome new members to the Maitahi Outrigger Canoe Club.
We have social and racing waka ama crews catering for a wide variety of ages and abilities.

We have Junior Rangatahi crews (school aged children) right through to Masters 70s paddlers (over 70s).
