The Cold Kiwi Series comes into Wellington City for the first time this Season.
We've given the Porirua City Area an extra event to recognise the great turn outs.....to achieve this we had to drop one of the Wellington City Events.
So for all the Wellington City based paddlers here's a big chance to show our strength in numbers and we'll attempt to match the 30 to 50 paddler turnout's we've been getting in Porirua and also Hutt City.
6 days to go and so far we're looking like a 60 kmh - 80 kmh Northerly.....but this forecast is likely to progress back to a moderate Northerly pattern.......we also have a low tide for 11.35 am on the day with plenty of deep water to paddle in.
We will base the event at Hataitai Beach if it stays Northerly or alternately at the Marina at the bottom of Cobham Drive if it's a Southerly.
We'll know more closer to the date and what ever the wind strength on the day we'll put some thought into the best course / buoy placements so everyone has a good paddle that day.
Also there are plenty of people who travel a distance to get to these events.....some 1.5 to 2 hours away.....and we really appreciate your commitment supporting any of the Cold Kiwi Series Events a great example is being set by you people
Support these Events and make and effort to travel 30 minutes across the City to get to them.....the camaraderie amongst the paddlers will make the trip worth while.
Next update on Wednesday.... with a final update at 9.45 am Saturday morning.
