Congratulations to FHMS and their coach Barrie
For the past four years Ocean Blue has been coaching several University faculties to compete in the Great Waka Ama Race. Students paddle from Takapuna Beach, across to McKenzie Bay on Rangitoto Island, run to the summit and then paddle back to Takapuna Beach for the chance to win an all expenses paid trip to Hawaii. Ocean Blue also looked after Law who came 5th (coached by Barrie) and Education who came 8th (coached by Helen and Wyllis).
We have always been grateful for this opportunity with our teams (in previous years) Law, Science, Medical and Education coming in behind Engineering who have won this race for the last 3 consecutive years, going on to also win in Hawaii, an outstanding achievement.
Well done to all of the teams who competed and thank you to our coaches who got up at 5am to train our future Lawyers, Doctors, Nurses, Teachers to also become paddlers.
