PADDLE Only (10km)


The 10km paddle is open to kayaks, surf skis, outriggers, waka-ama and stand up paddle boards. The route, from Whitireia Polytech across Porirua Harbour into Pauatahanui Inlet and back is scenic, safe and serene. But with the odd sea breeze, sand bank, tidal eddies and harbour swells, you need your wits about you. If the racing is secondary, there’s plenty to see along the way.
