On Sunday 4 March, 2012, BRD hosted an Outrigger Corporate regatta for Lite n' Easy. The day started early with collection and transportation of tents and gear from Colmslie to Hamilton plus ferrying the canoes across the river. Lite n' Easy had nine teams of five paddlers competing against each other in Outrigger canoes across the river at Northshore Riverside park (a great venue).

The day went really well with fierce competition, and even fiercer sledging, over three heats, two semis and a final. Paddling was fast and furious with all competitors having a great time. The final was very close with the final result being:

1st:- R n Demons        
2nd:- Kerr Who             
3rd:- Kalakava        
4th:- Minako Magic

Following the races, we took all of the children out for a short paddle which ended in a race between the boats ... don’t know where their competitive streaks come from!

Thanks to all volunteers on the day, Primo Smallgoods, Northshore Cafe, Urban Land Development Association and, most of all, Lite n' Easy, for a great day. We're already planning another regatta for later in the year.
