The 2021 NZ Open brought another weekend of early season racing with a stacked field of NZ racers. Taking the top spot in the Open Men's racing was Boaz Hebblethwaite after he found over one and a half seconds on Sam Blenkinsop. Coming across the line another three seconds back was George Brannigan.

For the Open Women's category, Robin Goomes takes the top step of the podium. Sacha Earnest came closest with a gap of 0.57 seconds and Rae Morrison took third place, although she was over six seconds off the pace of Goomes.

 Boaz was appropriately named if he can beat Blenki and Brannigan:

 Is there a way to determine whether Booz is the more proper pronunciation or Boaz...regardless, he obviously was not drinking if he beat Blenki.
