Paddlers get on world champ waka

The refinery has become a corporate sponsor of Team Paddle Fly – the Junior Men’s team from the Mitamitaga o le Pasefika Va’a-alo (Pride of the Pacific) Canoe Club. Based in Ngunguru the club has been at the forefront of this popular sport since the club was established over 30 years ago. The team of up and coming waka ama paddlers won gold at the Waka Ama NZ Sprint Nationals at lake Karapiro in January. Now we’re helping them get to Tahiti to compete in the world champs in July. We are proud to be supporting these driven and passionate young men on their journey to further success. Kia kaha, waka ama roopu!
