A TOTAL of 20 teams competed in the Fiji Outrigger regatta last Saturday at the Suva Foreshore.

A statement from Fiji Outrigger said the men's race distance increased from 15km to 18km and seven men's plus 13 junior teams participated in the first race of the season.

"Taf'aga To'a Team I took first place, adding a second victory to their win on April 5," said the statement.

"Kaiwai Camakau improved from third to second place, while a mixed Walu Va'a'/Kaiwai/Takia/Taf'aga team finished in third place."

The statement said there were no races in the women's competition and instead, the junior teams aged between 10 and 19 years competed.

"In the Boys U19 division, the up and coming Pacific Harbour Canoe Club took first place, with Kaiwai placing second and third.

"In the U16 Boys division, Takia Boys Team I won the race with Pacific Harbour in second and Takia's second team in third.

"In the junior girls and mixed races, Pacific Harbour's U16 mixed team finished first, with the Taf'aga U14 mixed team coming in second and the Takia U16 girls coming in third.

"A special mention also goes to the Kaiwai Manumanus team of under 10 year olds who got out on the water and showed everyone their skills."

The next event will be in May.
