Waitangi Day Celebrations 2024
A beautiful morning acknowledging Waitangi Day and Te Tiriti with a dawn paddle out to Rangitoto Island and back.
The flotilla from Takapuna Boating Club included lots of Outrigger Canoes (Waka Ama), surf skis, kayaks, NZ police, NZ Coast Guard and a number of small boats. A great example of people from all cultures coming together in partnership, friendship and the love of our ocean on this special day.
The days events were lead by Kamatua Bill Kapea, and supported by Māori leaders, Takapuna Boat Club, Waka ama clubs, as well as Council and Govt representatives, Toni van Tonder Richard Hills, Terence Harper and Simon Watts MP for North Shore.
A special day.
