The Great Waka Ama Race

Support your faculty in this years Great Waka Ama Race- Bay Edition!

Date Location
Saturday 10 October Hyundai Marine Sports Centre

This year, the Great Waka Ama Race is going to be a little different. Introducing the Great Waka Ama Race - Bay Edition! 

Instead of paddling from Takapuna beach to Rangitoto, teams will paddle round the bays! Faculty teams will paddle from the new Hyundai Marine Sports Centre at Okahu Bay to St Heliers Beach, where they will complete a fun challenge before paddling back. 

There are a bunch of cool prizes up for grabs as well as food at the finish line.

Head down to the Hyundai Marine Sports Centre on Saturday 10 October to support your faculty! 

“Half of our team had never paddled waka before training for the University’s Great Waka Ama Race, so I encourage everyone to give it a go no matter your experience level.” – Loukas Banks, 2019 FHMS Waka Ama Captain
