Victorious Vikings: Winners of the
Best Team Spirit.
Making a splash at the Great
Whangaroa Raft Race was Peria
School who beat four other com-
petitors to win the schools div-
The event was a huge success
with 14 entries from schools and a
number of community teams.
Kiwi Can Charitable Trust
Whangaroa, a non-profit youth
development organisation, hosted
the event and was overwhelmed
by the support.
It was a gorgeous day on the
Whangaroa Harbour and we had
some fearless contestants who
saddled their entries and burnt
some muscle over the 325m
(school division) and 500m (open
division) course,'' Kiwi Can co-co-
ordinator Kate Moss says.
Prizes were awarded in each
division for best team spirit, most
creative/innovative raft and water
In addition, there were more
than 30 people who entered the
junior Rubber Ducky race and at
least 100 entered the colouring
The open category was a diverse
race with nine teams entered, all
completing the course with
varying degrees of ease.
San Kaeo, the Sanfords
Fisheries team, stormed across
the line followed by Ngati Rehia
Rebels from Te Tii, KTown
Shakers (John Argent and fam-
ily), Can Tiki (Gundry/Mooney
families), Fire Floater -- the Kaeo
Fire Brigade team, Shark Attack
-- the Kiwi Can Team, Team
Cruso, Matangirau Rangatahi
and finally the Kinetic Kinnons, a
brave father -- Doug Kinnon and
his sons, Alex, 9, and Henry, 6.
It was great to see the com-
munity step in to support the day
-- from the local mums who made
fried bread and cakes to sell and
families supporting their teams,
to the ambulance, Coastguard,
Dive North, NZ Paddle company
and volunteer crew who made it
all possible. We also had Dani
Kaiawe and a team of waka ama
paddlers showcase a 12-man
waka,'' Ms Moss says.
