King of Rangitoto

13th November 2009

The King of Rangitoto event, last held in 2003, made a return to the competition programme when it took place on 31st October.
The course for surf boat crews and ski paddlers was over a 5km distance from Takapuna Beach to McKenzie Bay on Rangitoto Island where all craft were beached. Competitors then ran to the Rangitoto summit and back to their craft, a distance of 7km. Then it was a 5km paddle or row back to Takapuna to complete the course.
