Next generation shows waka ama prowess
The future of waka ama appears to be in safe hands with a high standard of competition from more than 2000 taitamariki on the water yesterday at the second day of the Waka Ama National Sprint Championships at Lake Karapiro.
Lara Collins from Waka Ama New Zealand says East Coast clubs were particularly prominent, with teams from clubs like Horouta and Mareikura featuring high up on the results board.
The day finished with a prize-giving for the young paddlers that turned into a bit of a party.
Today is the start of the turn races over 500 metres and the last day of the junior under 16 paddlers.
