This is Polynesia's most prestigious race with outrigger canoes from all over the world competing in a 3-day event in which canoes race  between the islands of Huahine,  Raiatea, Taa'a with a backdrop of beautiful Polynesian landscapes, finishing at the island of Bora-Bora.  The competitors race through taxing wave conditions into the calm of the turquoise lagoons.  This is one of the toughest races in the world and the teams train for years in preparation for it.
