NEIGHBOURHOODS AT CHAMPIONSHIPS
The 18th IVF Va’a World-Sprint Championships represent a real opportunity to highlight the practice of va’a internationally. But it is also a unique opportunity to involve the local population.
The highlight of the solidarity component of the LOC is represented by the VA’A MATA’EINA’A CONTEST. While Va’a no te Ora was primarily intended for the districts of Pirae, the solidarity actions of the LOC are taking on a new dimension with this competition dedicated to the priority districts of the 13 municipalities of Tahiti and Moorea.
Each municipality will be responsible for the selection of its crews, who may compete in the following 6 categories:
- V6 Open Ladies 500m
- V6 Open Men 500m
- V6 Open Ladies 1000m
- V6 Open Men 1000m
- V12 Open Women 500m
- V12 Open Men 500m
