At this years event we will have three main types of racing which will all make up the overall result. This includes
1. 300m sprints: These races will be short and sharp, where athletes will race from the beach, to a mark and then back to the beach for a finish... making it easy with only one turn.
2. Technical race: This will be approximately 1.5km-2km and will involve multiple turns. These races will create more action where paddlers will also be required to run through a gantry on the beach during the race.
3. Distance Race: This will be done if we have time and conditions are suitable. The race will be from Mount Maunganui to Papamoa and will be approximately 12km.
According to conditions we will decide what is best where we will ideally run most racing on March 11th. If conditions are not favourable we will then include March 12th.
Racing location will be on Mount Maunganui main beach side, where we will move to Leisure Island if conditions are too rough. If conditions are still too rough or dangerous we will race from Pilot Bay.
