Teams are making light work of this mornings paddle on the Waiau River with leading teams through the 3rd checkpoint at Supply Bay and experiencing their first slice of Fiordland bush. The Pure Teams pulled packrafts out of the river and carried them a short distance through the bush to put in on Lake Manapouri. The Pursuit teams who are paddling canoes opted to stay in the river and paddle round as the boats are not so easy to carry.
The leading pack down the river are a strong bunch of teams and the usual front-running suspects including Swordfox (currently leading), Yealands Family Wines, Tiki Tour, PwC, Sneaky Weasels,Avaya, Bivouac Inov8, Rogue 4 and local Te Anau team Bend Racing Fear Society and Loose Moose from Te Anau/Wellington/Nelson & Christchurch.
