We are stoked to announce the addition of Rachel Clarke and Sam Mayhew from New Zealand to the Vaikobi Race Team!
Rachel Clarke (NZL) is the 2014 Molokai Surfski World Champion, 3X NZ Champion and placed 3rd at the 2015 World Surfski Championship in Tahiti. An inspirational Athlete, Rachel is coming back to form after getting through a cancer scare late last year after a routine visit to her GP discovered pre-cancerous cells requiring a cervical biopsy.
Rachel is promoting cervical cancer awareness and is encouraging women of all ages to have regular check ups with their Doctor.
Sam Mayhew is amongst the top group of New Zealand Surfski Athletes and this year, he plans to build on his efforts over the past two years on the World Surfski Series. When not chasing the international tour, Sam is full-time registered GP Doctor.
Both Rachel and Sam are conducting paddling clinics around New Zealand for all levels.
Welcome Rachel & Sam!
