Aotearoa Downwind Champs Entry

French Bay Paddlers, Oceanrider Sports and Portage Crossing Canoe Club are proud to bring this epic race to you all once again!!! 

Experience one of New Zealand's best kept secrets, the beautiful, Great Manukau Harbour, the second largest harbour in New Zealand. The Manukau Harbour always provides a true Downwind run, great for Stand Up Paddle, Outrigger and Surf Ski paddling. We're stoked to be hosting along side French Bay Paddlers a great race event to show off our back yard, Manukau Harbour and it's Downwinder along with it's gorgeous scenery. There's some Fantastic prizes up for grabs of course, what would a race be without goodies for reward and effort at the end right! Will be a cracker of a race!!! Looking forward to seeing y'all down there at the start line.
