Motu2Motu 2018

Tuesday 4 December 2018 - Motu2Motu Aitutaki

Paddle the BEST EVENT in the COOK ISLANDS!!!!!

Motu2Motu Aitutaki is now a multi award winning event having picked up two awards, Winners of the Festivals and Events Award and Outer Island Award for 2015/2016 at the recent Air New Zealand Cook Island National Tourism Awards


2011 saw the creation of what was only a simple idea of seeing the Aitutaki Lagoon from a different perspective and making a race of it. From that idea Motu2Motu was born.

What better way to finish your 2017 Vaka Eiva campaign and trip to the Cook Islands than visiting beautiful Aitutaki and racing in the BEST EVENT in the COOK
ISLANDS, Motu2Motu.

36kms, 7 legs, 6 changeovers, mixed crews, 1 awesome day.

In 2011,17 international paddlers participated in our first race, 2012 and 2013 saw the event grow bigger and better each time and the 2014 event was our "feel good" event with many commenting 2014, "the best Motu2Motu yet" and 2015 "the race we haveto come back to finish” 2016, "so much fun". 

2017 saw all 10 vaka in the water, a lot of returning friends and a whole heap of new paddlers from around the globe came to Aituaki to experience Motu2Motu and join our Aitutaki and Cook Islands paddling family. 

Motu2Motu Aitutaki is the perfect changeover race for novices. Could there be a more perfect place for your first ever international changeover race?...... we think not.
