TAF'AGA and Kaiwai won the men's and women's competition in the 3rd Fiji Outrigger Marathon Regatta at Mosquito Island in Lami over the weekend.

The day-long competition held on Saturday was hosted by the Kaiwai Canoe Club and had 132 paddlers participating.

Kaiwai, Taf'aga, Takia, Walu Va'a and Pacific Harbour were the clubs that took part in the race.

In the open women's 11 kilometre race, Kaiwai continued their dominance after finishing the race in one hour and 50 seconds followed by Taf'aga in one hour and one minute.

In the open men's 17 km race, Taf'aga Toa finished ahead of Kaiwai Camakau in one hour and twenty two minutes.

Kaiwai Camakau finished second in one hour, 23 minutes and Walu Va'a took third in 1 hour and 25 minutes.

"Both Kaiwai women and Taf'aga men now have an opportunity to make a cleansweep of the marathon season, if they can repeat their wins at the fourth and final regatta in two weeks time," said a statement from Fiji Outrigger.

Meanwhile, 13 teams made up of paddlers under the age of 19 years also took part.

"Increasing the number of young girls and boys taking up the sport is a key part of Fiji Outrigger's development strategy so it was encouraging to see the biggest turnout of the season in the junior division with under-10s, U14s, U16s and U19s all represented."
