Summary
The Poor Knights Crossing is a 30km open water paddle between the mainland and the Poor Knights Islands, which is also a marine park. This year’s major sponsor is Zest Brokers.

In ideal conditions, competitors and race craft are ferried out to the Poor Knights Marine Reserve on board Dive! Tutukaka boats and race a 30km course back to the finish line inside Tutukaka Harbour. But as the weather and sea state is an unpredictable beast on the picturesque Tutukaka Coast, there are several race course options depending on the prevailing winds. Paddlers could end up paddle out to the Poor Knights and get ferried back, or may even get to experience other secluded parts of the Northland coastline if conditions dictate a different plan on race day. 

Race is open to surf ski, Waka Ama and SUP. Entries are now open: www.enternowonline.com/4331/events
