Cotton Tree - Outrigger Sprints

Still here at Cotton Tree, hard to leave. The weather is pretty much perfect and there is always something to do. The National Surf Championships finished and a week later the Va'a International Outrigger Sprints started. The racing ran for ten days bringing 2000 competitors from 32 nations including adaptive paddlers. The program also included a cultural night where each nation had a chance to show off their music, traditions and native dress.
