Portage Waka Ama Race 2018

First there is de-rigging

Kia ora Maitahi whanau; big ups to all for the de-rig tonight. Bex Malthus for doing some early work, Greg Buck, Rongomai Flavell for carrying that on and for all the rest (including Tony Davies freshly back from summer climes), who lifted, fetched, found and tied down! You know who you are – so thanks.
We got the job (nearly) done before we all froze – just a couple of new straps & bike tubes to go on in the a.m.

See you all in Picton, where we do it all again!!! Lol.
