During the FIV congress that took place from 10th to 12th October 2016 in Hawaii, M. John COURT, FIV delegate responsible for the development of PARA VA’A, made a presentation and insisted on multiple points :
- PARA VA’A participation in the first IVF Va’a Championship – Marathon 2017, as an exhibition
- Classification rules of PARA VA’A under review – new classifications to be used at the IVF Va’a World Championships Sprint – Tahiti 2018
