  Purpose

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

Our recreational paddling program continues year-round and 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.

* all times: Boats In the Water

Recreational paddling is Tuesday, Wednesday 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.

Saturday morning practices start at 7:00am, with canoes in the water at 6:45am. If you want to paddle Saturday morning, plan on being out on the water for 2½ to 3 hours, with at least 2 hours actual paddling time. These practices are more intense than the weekday evening sessions and are not intended for very young or inexperienced paddlers. See Coach Wayne if you have any questions about participating.

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.

If you have not paddled before or if you’re just visiting, you can join a weekday practice session for a $10 donation. Check our “Join” page for more information.
