OC6 Canoe Hire for International & out of Auckland Crews only


OC6 Canoes are available to hire through the Takapuna Beach Cup Organising Committee for all International crews and crews outside of the Auckland region. Please note that International crews will be given preference for Canoes over New Zealand crews.

The cost to hire an OC6 is NZ$300 and is not included in entry fee. If you would like to hire an OC6 please go through the Online Entry process where you can add an OC6 canoe to your entry.

Canoe hire will be linked to your Saturday Race entry, if you also wish you take part in the Friday Race, your canoe request will be accounted for with the Saturday entry, so no need to request or pay for this twice.  

Depending on canoe drop off times you may be allocated a different canoe on the Friday than the one you will be using on the Saturday.  


Canoe Hire will include the following items:

1x Spray Skirt

6 x Lifejackets

1x Flare

2x Bailers

2x Spare Lashings 

1x Tow Rope


Please note the cut off date for all OC6 Canoe hire requests is the 4th February 2018.


OC1/ OC2 Canoe Hire for International Crews only - Crews to arrange themselves


The Takapuna Beach Cup Organising Committee do not arrange OC1/ OC2 canoes. We are unable to arrange these for you, but if we can however, we will put you in touch with people for you to arrange the hireage directly through them.

Please note that there are not many OC1 and OC2 canoes in New Zealand and most OC1's will be used by their owners for the relay races, so we cannot gaurantee that your crew will be able to hire these canoes so please put in your requests early !

The cost of these canoes is not included in your event entry fee.

Please email our Event Manager Michelle if you would like a contact.

All New Zealand Crews must arrange their own OC1& OC2 Canoes.
