Pualele paddlers tackle Saoluafata Challenge

READY FOR BIG PADDLE: Members of the Pualele Outrigger Canoe Club Samoa get ready to tackle the 42km Saoluafata Series Challenge 2016.

The Challenge started last Saturday when paddlers in V6 canoes raced from inside the Taumeasina lagoon towards Saoluafata.

The second stage of the race is this Saturday with a paddle towards Falefa and the Fagaloa Bay, returning to Saoluafata. The third and final leg is scheduled for next Saturday when the canoes will set off from Saoluafata towards Taumeasina.

The Challenge is part of the Club’s preparations for the 10th anniversary of the Savai’i Crossing next year.
