THE Fiji Outrigger will host two more regatta events this month as it looks to end the 2014 season on a high.

In its first regatta competition on July 19, about 120 paddlers took part.

Gary Volau from Taf'aga Outrigger Canoe Club won the open men's V1 (single-person-canoe) with a time of two minutes 17 seconds.

He was followed by Fred Leota of Walu Va'a Racing Club and Johji Wong of Taf'aga on second and third places, respectively.

In the V1 open women's race, Taf'aga again took the top spot with Theresa Avon winning in 2 mins 43 seconds closely followed by team mate Krystelle Whippy and Pauline Benson of Kai Wai Canoe Club coming in third place.

In the juniors V1 competition, Liam Reiher (Takia Canoe Club) reigned supreme in the 250 metres under-10 event, Lauryn Inia (Taf'aga) in the U14 girl's, Gabbie (Takia) in the U14 boy's, Keanu Reiher (Takia) in the U16 boy's, Eroni (Kai Wai) in the U19 boy's and Sylvia Hesaie (Taf'aga) in the U19 girl's.

In the V6 (six-person canoe) competition, Taf'aga dominated winning the 500m and 1500m for both the open men and open women.

Takia Canoe Club had a strong finish in the juniors V6 competition with wins in the 500m and 1000m for the U14 boy's, U16 boy's and girl's and the U19 boy's while the Taf'aga girl's took first place in the U19 girl's and Pacific Harbour Canoe Club also got to the podium with a win in the U16 boy's 500m.
