Tauranga Moana Outrigger Canoe Club – TMOCC(New Zealand Club)

The club "TMOCC" is actively involved in running a small regatta, the Maungatapu Dash in Feb. - was the original organiser of the "Harbour-Challenge" in and numerous other boat regattas and trips(Wairoa & Omokoroa river) for our canoe club members.

TMOCC Sun Sport article:

Have waka, will paddle (and paddle)

Forget about holidaying on the bcach. Nine women from the Tauranga Moana Outrigger Canoe Club are heading to Rarotonga with a strictly competitive focus.

They are among 700 paddlers from around the world chasing glory in the annual Vaka Eiva 36km open ocean waka ama changeover' race — in a personal challenge to compete strongly on the international stage. Crew captain Rebecca Ryder says most have been paddling for about 10 years, but got their first taste of changeover racing as a group when they placed fourth in the open women's section of the highly competitive 42km Takapuna Cup race in February. "After the Takapuna Cup, we set a goal to do an interna- tional race and we're aiming to finish in the top third of the changeover race. That's where we are pitching." With some of the sports top paddlers competing - including teams from Tahiti and Hawaii where waka ama is a major sport - the crew has been training hard both in the canoe and practicing crew changeovers. Under changeover racing, the nine-member team rotates the crew in the six-person canoe, with three members swapping over from a support boat every 15 minutes. "It keeps the level of intensity high. It's sort of like doing little sprints then having a little recovery." Rebecca says the trick is learning to do changeovers quickly and safely, but says the crew has so far avoided any catastrophes. Along with the changeover race - which the crew aims to complete in three and a half hours - they are also competing in sprint and 18 km non-changeover races. The team is also getting involved in the local community during its visit, sponsoring a school with classroom stationery supplies and reading material. They will be visiting the school and taking the students out for a paddle. The week-long event runs until November 25.
