Final Summary of the Competition
New Caledonia won 6 medals from 6 events entered, winning 5 gold medals. The highlight however was the emergence of Cook Islands, winning 10 medals overall including three gold medals.
Palau led the Micronesian contingent with 1 silver and 2 bronze however the dominance of the Southern Pacific nations in this sport was clear.
The prevailing weather forced us to change the venue for the competition from Meyuns Ramp to Nikko Bay. This provided a safe and well sheltered venue for the competition and this was appreciated by all competitors.
My thanks go to the many volunteers and our hard working support staff for making this event possible despite the weather. Special thanks goes to Lucinda Jenkins from Tonga for acting as Race Secretary for the event.
