The University open mixed and the J19 Girls teams entered their first waka ama race in Raglan. With 80 plus waka on the start line, both crews took to the water for the start of their 8k. It is a daunting task to line up alongside all of the other crews and not be overwhelmed by the occasion. In the 20km race was our men's team The Blues Bro's.
The University Crew - Ocean Blue Mayhem took on the challenge and read the course and conditions really well finishing 2nd in their category and 8th overall. An awesome achievement.
The J19 Girls - Ocean Blue Magic were entered into the Open Women Novice division and finished 6th out of 10 and 69th overall, also a great achievement for their first race.
The Blues Bros finished 8th out of 12 in the Open Men's division and 26th overall. Although the race was 5km shorter this year, conditions were flat, sun was shining it didn't make the course any easier.
Well done to all who competed
