The Great Waka Ama Race

We’re back on March 25th for the 2023 Great Waka Ama Race!

After another successful event in 2022, we’re looking forward to the 2023 Great Waka Ama race and registrations are open now!

There’s even more on the line this year, with the winners receiving an all-expenses paid trip to Hawaii, to take part in the Queen Lili’uokalani race in September 2023! Even more incentive to get signed up and into training over the Christmas and New Year period.

2022 saw seven teams taking on the most demanding aquatic challenge of the year, with Arts Alligators, Engineering Eagles, FMHS Seabass, Law Lions, SPIES (South Pacific Indigenous Engineering Students), UOAWC (UoA Waka Ama Club) and SCP (Science/Commerce/Property combined) all vying for the title.

FMHS Seabass took out first place, with Law Lions, SCP and Arts Alligators rounding out the top four respectively.

For 2023, we’re hoping to have even more teams taking part, with a trip to Hawaii up for grabs and the opportunity for you and your team to take on the best in the world come September.
