April 2023 has been the culmination of a long-held dream by our Team Captain to have enough Paddlers to form a BC team. Thus, Taranaki Pinks came in to being.
We entered as a small boat at this year’s Nationals and as a standard boat at the recent IBCPC held at Lake Karapiro. The atmosphere was amazing and truly embodies the camaraderie and spirit of all BC survivors, from the young to the old brought together by a common bond.
Now that we are all hooked and can call ourselves international athletes, lol, here’s to the next one in 4 years’ time.
New paddlers keen to join us out at the Waitara River are always welcome. Check out our website or Facebook page for details.
