Lane Draw & Schedule - 2024 Wellington Region Secondary School Waka Ama Sprint Champs

It’s looking like it is going to be bigger than last year.  How good!!  Our Secondary Schools Regional Champs has become a big hit over the past few years, thanks to Henley Lake for always providing the goods.  We look forward to another amazing day of racing.  Our event is a great opportunity for the experience paddlers to test themselves against one another and also for our new paddlers/teams to be fearless and courageous and have a go and for teams to get a gauge, where they’re at amongst other schools. Nothing to lose, everything to gain!!!


There will also only be Gold and Silver Medals handed out this year and the team that places 3rd, one Bronze ribbon will be given for the whole team.

In the Pānui it states what time your school is Volunteering in the loading bay, which will be in the water, marshaling waka to their designated area and helping paddlers get in their waka.  You will need a spare change of clothes to change into, appropriate footwear, water bottle and sunscreen.  Also a reminder to bring your waiver form with you, hand it to Registration first thing in the morning and get signed off.
