The first annual Backpaddock Lakes Boat Race is on its’ way, as part of the Central Hawke’s Bay Spring Fling.
The Challenge has been laid down, Backpaddock Lakes Boat Race will require grit, stamina and some serious boat building skills. Reputations will be on the line!
Teams are tasked to enter their homebuilt boats, racing the full length of Backpaddock Lakes, round the Island and back to claim ultimate glory - hopefully making it across the finish line with boats in one piece.

The Festival is a celebration of Art, Wine and Food on the spectacular hilltop venue of Pukeora Estate – overlooking beautiful Central Hawke’s Bay.
With over 100 stalls exhibiting – there is something for everyone! The Festival runs from Thursday September 6th to Sunday September 9th, 2018 and is open daily from 10am to 4pm
