Corporate event to help development

Wednesday February 22, 2017

Cook Islands Canoeing Association is holding its first annual Corporate Oe Vaka fundraiser to support the development of canoeing and kayak in the schools both here on Rarotonga and Aitutaki. 

Paddlers from the Cook Islands and overseas battled rough conditions on the opening day of the 2017 Matson Vaka Eiva competition. The testing weather which one visitor said borded on “cyclonic”, meant the races were shortened by nearly 50 per cent. Below are the results from the opening day of the one of the top sporting events in the Cook Islands.
