Motu2Motu Aitutaki, the most unique paddling event on the most stunning lagoon on the planet!
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.
November/December 2022 will see us running our 10th Anniversary Event! What better way to spend a holiday, than visiting beautiful Aitutaki and racing in the BEST EVENT in the COOK ISLANDS, Motu2Motu Aitutaki.
36kms, 7 legs, 6 changeovers, mixed crews of 12, 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"" with every year growing in popularity.
2019 was a sell out year, as was 2020 (till you know what happened globally), and our event this year is just about at capacity. 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. Motu2Motu Aitutaki, the most unique paddling event on the most stunning lagoon on the planet!
