This event is for Outrigger Canoe, Ocean Ski and SUP Paddlers who want to challenge themselves with a 30+ km ocean run.
Over 100 paddlers can’t be wrong. No doubt there are some unsettled scores and we hope to see the best of the bunch return to either retain their title or to claim it for themselves.
Bhutty’s ‘Champions Cup’ race is NOT an event for novice paddlers. The ‘Omokoroa Dash’ on Sunday is more suited for all to be involved.
Race divisions are: Open Men & Women – Single Outrigger Canoe, Ocean Ski and Stand Up Paddle Board and Open Double Outrigger Canoe & Double Surf Ski.
We don’t want any excuses like “There is not enough or too much wind” or “There is no rudderless division” or “where is the old guy category”. Pick your canoe of choice and show us what you’re made of. We have cash prize money, medals and prizes for placings. It’s a great value for money, well worth the $70 entry fee.
