Five reasons to enter the Pailolo Challenge

  • 1: THE DATE: Sat., Sept. 19, 2015

1 Week Before Na Wahine and 3 weeks before Molokai Hoe. The date makes the Pailolo Challenge a prime race in gearing up for Na Wahine o Ke Kai and the Moloka’i Hoe. The course offers fantastic training in surf conditions.


We provide towing on Maui and will also two your canoe to YB Kaunakakai if you need. Plus we coordinate with Na Wahine/Moloka’i Hoe to get your canoe to Hale o Lono.


The Pailolo Challenge is a great value. The $450 entry fee includes a great 26-mile downwind race, awards & goodies, AND a post-race party with food from the people of Moloka’i and brews from Maui Brewing Company. For iron crews that meet the experience level you can choose to go escort free, which saves in additional support and fuel costs. What a deal!

  • 4: MAUI NO KA ‘OI

Staying on Maui cheap AND luxurious. The Westin Ka’anapali Ocean Resort Villas is offering Pailolo Challenge participants an unbelievable deal on rooms! Check out their stunning rooms at:

The Moloka‘i community benefits from the Pailolo Challenge. The Moloka’i High School Track Team will make money from feeding hungry paddlers at the post-race party. Local businesses benefit from purchases, car rentals, and night stays.
