Nau mai piki mai haere mai.

Waitangi Kaihoe Waka Ama Clubs’ second regatta. This is a 2 day event, with races for all ages – sprints, short distances and a long race. Novice midgets through to serious paddlers!

We have a very special race as well on the Sunday. The 25km “Kris Kjeldsen Memorial Race – Te Taiawhio o Ipipiri” race was founded in the Bay of Islands 26 years ago by the late Kris Kjelsden, a father of the sport in New Zealand, but had not been held for 17 years, until it was revived at the inaugural Bay of Islands Waka Festival in 2017.

The base is Te Tii Beach Waitangi Bridge end, a spectacular spot to watch the racing or get your paddle on!!
