I've had quite a bit of correspondence through the last week or so from Hans Wannemacher about some of the Capital Paddlers events for the Stand Up Paddle boarding community over the summer. I could easily write a yarn up............but asked Hans if they like to put something together.............below is what he's written.

Capital Paddlers

A group of active Wellington SUP paddlers interested in providing a meeting place for other paddlers and those interested in getting into the sport.

Also launching a FUN Wellington Summer Sup Series.



Non-profit event(s) for all skill levels to get Welly SUPers together on a regular basis during summer for fun and fitness, and maybe a little competition (!).

These dates work well between the Ocean Outfitters summer SUP events so will keep Welly SUPers social, busy, and fit during summer! J

Also increase the exposure for the sport in Wellington and get new people along...

NOV 3rd - Mana/Porirua location
NOV 24th - Wellington City location
DEC 8th - Mana/Porirua

FEB 2nd - Wellington City
FEB 23rd - Mana/Porirua
Best location picked during week prior to event.
Leash and PFD compulsory in all “non-surfzone” events (as per current maritime rules).

Exact race details to come... and interested people can keep an eye on the Facebook page for all up to date race details and info.

It must be said that these events are new, and for all Welly SUPers and we would love feedback and any suggestions through a message on the facebook page, or email Alternatively contact Brodie, Rob, or Hans through the facebook page.

Thanks and cya on the water from the Capital Paddlers Team!
