Harbour Sport

🥇 INCREDIBLE RESULTS 🥇 from Harbour local, Ashton Reiser 🚣‍♂️, who recently received $1000 from the Hand Up Fund! He's definitley one to watch out for!

👇 Read why below...👇

"I've just raced at the Oceania and NZ Canoe Racing Championships this past weekend and it went better than I could've even dreamed! I took home 5 NZ and Oceania Titles including my first ever individual NZ title (in any age group or sport)! This included winning the triple 200m crown (All 3 200m events) and both K4 events (200m and 500m). I also managed to qualify for all 3 K1 individual A-finals for the first time ever (200m, 500m and 1000m) with 2 new personal best times!

I just want to say thank you so much to you and everyone else at North Harbour Sport for the Hand Up Fund that I received, I put this funding towards a brand new Nelo Sete K1 Kayak which is made in Portugal and has just been released in time for the Tokyo Olympics!"

Results:
🥇1st Open K1 200m (fastest kayaker in NZ)
🥇1st Open K2 200m
🥇1st Open K4 200m
🥇1st Open K4 500m
🥇1st U23 K1 200m
🥉3rd U23 K1 500m

More People on Bikes More Often

As cycling is of the more popular recreational activities in the country, increasing this in the Harbour region is an important goal for Harbour Sport.

Harbour Sport supports a range of activities in the community, from the ‘Bikes in Schools’ programme to cycle skills training for young people and adults to advocacy for cycling infrastructure, Harbour Sport is leading the charge.  We work closely with Auckland Transport offering local activities to educate our community in how cycling for fun is great exercise.
