Andy Duff Memorial Race

Big ups to Douglas McCormick for organising and running the Andy Duff Memorial Race last weekend! The race consists of 5 back to back races. The classes are: Short Boat, Long Boat, Tandems, Sledgers/Swimmers and Rafts. Mass starts on every race always ensure heaps of competitive carnage so this even is always a good laugh. This year we had two work teams from Kaitiaki, one boat with the >30 guides and one boat with the <30 guides, our rafts came 3rd and 4th overall with the under 30s team stoked as to beat the old boys yeyah!

Short-boats: Kenny Mutton, Toni George
Long-boats: Sam Sutton, Toni George
Tandems: Kenny and Zack Mutton
Sledges: Joel Flamank, Geni Walters
Rafts: Rotorua Rafting
Best in Show: Sam Sutton and Ryan Lucas

Also huge thanks to all the people who helped out with safety: Evan Freshwater, Scott Fitzgerald, Kate Fitzgerald, Tim Duff and Matt Duff, Rotorua Rafting for the use of their raft; House of Elliot in Rotorua for donating hair product to the winner of the women's longboat race, Sarah Uhl at the Okere Falls Store for supplying good beer and great music (Swamp Thing), and Tim Pickering helping out behind the scenes. Super sick day!
