Wet weather and rough sea conditions on Saturday did little to dampen the spirits of paddlers on day one of the Matson Vaka Eiva 2016 paddling festival.
TWENTY-KNOT winds and swells of up to three metres are expected to greet paddlers in today’s first Matson Vaka Eiva 2016 race which is sure to make for adrenaline pumping action.
A great line up of Cook Islands and international teams will provide plenty of exciting action during this year’s Vaka Eiva festival.
Showing passion, dedication and commitment to her sport, Serena set her sights high in 2015 with her bucket list goal “the Molokai solo”, the prestigious Kaiwi channel crossing, a 55km ocean race from the island of Molokai to Oahu recognised as the ultimate endurance race for paddlers and the world championships of long distance OC1 outrigger canoeing.
Continuing with the annual tradition, the Business Trade and Investment Board (BTIB) is all set for another year of Go Local Trade Day which starts today.
