Arafura Canoe Blessing Video

The Arafura Outrigger Canoe Club recently took delivery of their two new beautiful lightweight Mirages and held a beautiful blessing ceremony for them in Darwin. It’s great to see such respect and tradition for the canoe is so strong up in the top end. Here is the video they put together of the ceremony, lookout for the very traditional mowing of the lawn dance! Well done Arafura, may the canoes carry you safely across the waves and return you to shore safely for many years to come.

Since Arafura don’t intend doing too many road trips to regattas towing their canoes (who’d blame them) they didn’t add any extra weight so they are enjoying the full benefits of paddling around in true 130kg lightweight Mirages. These two canoes are now the 9th lightweight Mirages we’ve made with 2 more still to do before Hammo. Don’t miss the boat (bad pun intended), get your orders in now. Give me a call or drop me an email.
