The Waikato River at Turangawaewae was a hive of activity last weekend, with thousands of people turning out to watch and take part in the annual Regatta, which sees a variety of Maori waka racing on the river, from primary school kids right up to the mighty waka taua, the big war canoes, which are always an impressive sight. The Regatta has been held for over 120 years now, and over the years recordings of radio coverage of the event have found their way into the archives of Nga Taonga Sound & Vision.
