Kia orana and welcome to Vaka Eiva 2019.

It is a great pleasure to host this annual international outrigger regatta for the 16th year running.

A team of 16 kayakers that competed in last weekend’s Blue Lakes 1 Regatta at Lake Tikitapu, Rotorua has returned from New Zealand with an array of awards to signify their accomplishments. 

Kayaker Jane Nicholas is confident she has done enough to secure a place at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.
