Ruahine White Water Club

The Ruahine White Water Club is a group of friendly, enthusiastic people who meet regulary to explore different rivers and sections of coastline. Trips range from afternoon jaunts down the Manawatu Gorge to week-long expeditions in the Marlborough Sounds or down Whanganui River. Members kayak as far north as the Wairoa River in the Kaimai Range, and as far south as Fiordland. Participants range from those just starting out who enjoy the scenery of the lower Rangitikei to the highly experienced paddlers who tackle its upper reaches.

Although the club exists basically for touring, it does organise slaloms, canoe polo and club races. These are generally more social occasions than competitions and are enjoyed by all levels of paddlers. The club produces a monthly newsletter which lists a programme of events which are coming up, and also has reviews of trips recently held.
