Pub to Club event for surf boats & skis

4th November 2009

Surf boat crews will be joined by surf ski paddlers when they head down the Puhoi River for the annual Pub to Club event on Saturday 7th November.
Between 15 and 20 boat crews - male & female - will race for cash prizes on offer from B H Heron Plumbing.
In previous years, ski paddlers have had their own mid-winter Pub to Club race. The two events have now been combined.
The course is along the Puhoi River, past Wenderholm to the sea then across the ocean to Red Beach, a distance of around 16km.
The briefing at the Puhoi Pub is at 10.00 am and the first boat will get away at 10.45 am with 3-minute intervals between boats. Ski paddlers will also start at 10.45 am.
