Richie McCaw with the Cure Kids team seemed happy to be finished with the grueling race today.
A good crowd was there to cheer them on.
They were chased in by a group of students from Garin College who were out on their wakas to explore the Abel Tasman National Park. They came across Richie and his team and decided to chase after them and cheer them on.
Here's Richie after the race being interviewed...
And his team of course...
This little guy came out from Nelson with his sign and waited for Richie to paddle in for a good long time.
Here's Richie posing with the winning Yealands team.
