Update: 6:08PM TAFAAGA Outrigger Canoe Club paddlers arrived yesterday, completing a successful participation in the New Zealand Waka Ama National Sprints.

Despite strong winds during the 500 metres and 1500m V6 heats, the Tafaaga Open mens team finished fourth in the 500m, narrowly missing out on a place in the semi-final as only the first three qualified.

They went one better in the 1500m V6 race finishing third and qualifying for the semi-finals.
