ELITE CAMPAIGN 2018
We know it’s not Thursday but any day is a goodtime for a world sprints throwback 😍 just a snippet of an amazing Elite Campaign once again we couldn’t have done it without the help of @taipaddles , @strongarmnz , Joe and the team at @faivaa for providing canoes for our Elite teams to train on and the amazing staff of @tahitipearlbeachresort for looking after our teams during their stay in Tahiti! 🔊 @six60 : don’t forget your roots #isittimetogobacknow #ivfvaaworldchampionship #wakaama #magnifique

And that’s a wrap! What a spectacular 8 days of racing and manaakitanga from our Tahitian hosts! We want to make a special mention to the IVF, Tahitian Federation and Local Organising Commitee for their tireless work behind the scenes to run such an amazing event. Thank you to @tahitinuitelevision for the excellent coverage for our whānau all over the world.
