Great to see a good turn out of stand up paddlers at the annual Foxton Loop race over the weekend, with contingents from Hawkes Bay, Wellington, Tokeroa and Northland supporting the local paddlers to make a decent fleet. It’s a fun 6k race on the river, and a great opportunity to paddle somewhere new. Loads of spot prizes too – at least half the paddling crew went away with goodies. Big thanks to Welly Paddlers for putting the event on, and maybe we can see a few more stand-up people joining in next year! See MoreSee Less

Yes- great fun, and awesome to meet other SUPpers. I’m a 60yr old female ‘beginner’ & enjoyed it, so it’s for allcomers.πŸ‘

Thank you Bill Dawes for rallying around the SUP Community, and for the long distances you all travelled to get to Foxton. The webscorer settings have been altered so they now display where everyone came from. Just click on "view / print complete results" (near the top of the page) to see all the people, courses and times on the same page and scroll away. www.webscorer.com/race?raceid=286300 Thanks to all your efforts a 12 km SUP course will be included next year, as the complex 10 km course will be removed.

Was a lovely event!!
