Volunteer Writer – CORA Newsletter

Connect with the outrigger racing community! CORA is looking for awesome volunteer writers to help start an e-newsletter for the paddling community. We are looking for volunteers who could assist with creating, writing and editing a regular newsletter for CORA members and affiliated clubs. Stories in the newsletter will also be published on CORA’s social media channels.
