Hataitai Beach venue for tomorrow

click on the photos to enlarge

Tomorrow we are looking at a 50 kmh - 60 kmh North Westerly for our event and a temperature of 11 degrees.

As mentioned the other day we have a low tide at 11.35 am but with plenty of deep water where we need it, for good boat run through most of the course.

We will place our registration area in the shelter on the eastern end of the Kupe Canoe Club where well pitch our blue gazebo / tent.

Registration: from 8:15 am
Briefing: 9:35 am
Start : 9:45 am

The likely course we be a multi lap course triangular course from the short jetty by Cog Park North to the boat moored by Soi Restaurant then head south around the yacht closest to the last boatshed just before the Evans Bay Yacht maintenance Yard and then back to the Welly Paddlers buoy by the jetty.

There will be a short course (3 laps and) a long course (6 laps)

The Evans Bay Yacht Club has a regatta on Sunday as to keep our events separated we have to cut the course down at what would be our regular Southern end turning point closer to the main boat ramp...that works o.k though that turn tends to be pretty bumpy when it gets windy.

Remember all paddlers must wear PFD's and waer warmer paddling gear appropriate for the cooler conditions.
