Kia Orana and Welcome to Vaka Eiva 2015 – The Twelfth Event!
20th to 27th November 2015
From small beginnings in 2004 for the inaugural Vaka Eiva right up to the introduction of GPS technology for the Eleventh Event in 2014, The Cook Islands Canoeing Association is filled with excitement as we look forward to Vaka Eiva 2015.
We will have more information in the New Year with regards to the 2015 schedule. Rest assured that the festival will include world class vaka racing, cultural activities, drumming & dance performances all set to the backdrop of Rarotonga's spectacular scenery and served up with our warm Cook Island's hospitality!
After a wonderful week in Rarotonga, you can even head over to Aitutaki for the popular Motu to Motu race – a truly unique paddling experience!
As always, we would like to take this opportunity to thank our major sponsors for their generous support over the years. Quite simply the event could not happen without their support, and it is with their help that this little island is able to host this huge event!
CICA would also like to extend our thanks to our Premier Business Partner Cook Islands Tourism Corporation for their on-going support of Vaka Eiva.
The local paddling community and wider Cook Island Community is looking forward to welcoming back our old friends and meeting new ones for our Twelfth Event!
Watch this space as well as our Vaka Eiva Facebook page for the latest information.
Kia orana e kia manuia!
