Waka Ama teams will power through the water later this month for the M2M coastal race.

Open to six men and women per Waka Ama team, the 32km race will see 20 canoes battle it out for the Strongarm Power title.

The M2M course will either be from Maketu to the Mount, the Mount to Maketu or Mount to Mount, which will be decided on Friday, March 23.

In case of bad weather, making it too dangerous to paddle on the open ocean, the race will be moved to the shelter of the Harbour from Pilot Bay.

The M2M race will be on Saturday, March 24 from 9-11.15am, with registrations open at 8am.
