The Taaone Bay beach and the lake were overwhelmed by employees who enjoyed the day to practice Va’a. They have developed an extraordinary team spirit ! Everyone did their best to make their company win !
To win companies must collect points! The company which will total the maximum number of points at the end of all the races of 2018 will be declared winner!
Several factors are included in the accounting of points :
- The number of kilos lost by the ambassador of each company.
- The number of women on the va’a
- Performance on the next 3 challenges
- SPEED trial
- Back to Back trial
- Mystery Event -50m with a tire at the front of the va’a
These various challenges have been designed to test the competitors’ physique and they’re team spirit
That’s how, on that day, we saw an ambassador give their team up to 130 points! That’s 13 KG lost for the latter! We’ve also seen all-female crews ready to win everything ! And supporters have given strength to their “Aito” (valorous people) with their war screams and encouragement!
Next regatta planned for April 7th!
