Getting Ready For Finishline Celebration
Tuesday 28th February 2017
The lights are on, the flags are up, the finish line archway is inflated as the GZ race crew prepare to see the first team across the GODZone finish at Frankton Beach before midday.
Team Tiki Tour have arrived at Kingston Beach this morning just before 6am and are now in their kayaks and on the last paddle up the Kingston arm of Lake Wakatipu towards Frankton finishline.
Race Director Warren Bates estimates it will take around 7 – 9 hours to paddle to the finish depending on lake conditions.
” Tiki Tours lights can be seen from a distance. They look like they are not moving much but they will get going with a light southerly breeze starting to build.
” What an amazing morning its going to be down at the beach with this lead team expected between 11am – 12miiday – we hope to see loads of locals out to cheer and congratulate them on their amazing effort. Its looking like Tiki Tour have it in the bag but anything can happen out there.”
