Lokahi Canoe Club


E Komo Mai


Lōkahi Canoe Club is a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation.

The club is established to perpetuate and to provide the opportunity to participate in the Hawaiian tradition and culture of outrigger canoe racing.

Our mission is to:

  1. Educate club members and to foster opportunities for the community to learn and engage in the Hawaiian paddling culture with respect and aloha.
  2. Provide coaching and training to develop the leadership, teamwork, discipline, skills, and racing techniques for competitive paddlers to compete in outrigger canoe races.
  3. Offer opportunities for the non-competitive paddler to train, enjoy, and participate in this sport.
  Paddling Practice Schedule

Regular competitive paddling practice began Monday, March 3 for paddlers interested in doing pre-regatta season iron races. Paddlers focused on regatta racing start practice Wednesday, April 2. We’ll continue to practice Monday and Wednesday, with racing on Saturdays starting March 29.

Beginning April 2, paddlers planning to race in regattas practice Mondays and Wednesdays. Regattas, except for the end-of-season championships, are held on Sundays, beginning May 25 at Ke‘ehi Lagoon.

In addition to the Mon-Wed schedule, competitive paddlers can come out with rec paddlers on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

Our recreational paddling program provides an opportunity for you to participate in Hawai‘i’s official team sport, and to share in the historical and cultural legacy of Hawaiian outrigger canoe paddling.

Recreational paddling is Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 5:45pm to about 7:30pm. Competitive members who want to maintain OC6 proficiency and get some additional coaching are welcome to come down for any scheduled practice session. If you want to better your performance next year, then you need to start working out now and you have the option to include off-season paddling in your schedule.

Effective April 1, dues for recreational membership are $80 for 6 months from the month you start paddling with us, and entitle you to participate in Lōkahi practices and activities short of HCRA-sanctioned competition. If you join as a recreational paddler and later decide you’d like to compete, we’ll apply your payment to the dues for competitive paddling.
