Canoe racing treat for Pom residents

Teams from Central Province and Motu-Koita will vie for awards and cash prizes during the two-day canoe racing fest on Friday (Sept 30) and Saturday.

David Davai, a member of the Motu-Koita Assembly and coordinator of the competition, says the canoe race will coincide with the sailing of the Lagatoi out from Manubada.

Three separate divisions of C, B and A Grade will take part in the competition, which begins at 9am, and presentations of awards later in the afternoon.

Both C and A Grade will race on Friday while the B Grade division race is on Saturday.
