Pailolo Race Date: Saturday, September 16, 2023
Get your crews and canoe’s ready for one of the gnarliest channels in the Hawaiian islands, and what is being called the worlds funnest canoe race. Why? We help take care of the logistics, while you get some great downwind training and experience in the most consistent channel… PAILOLO.
This year, and since the pandemic, we ask that all paddlers take extra effort to be sensitive to the needs and requests of the Molokai community. We have adjusted the rules, moved the awards ceremony to HCC, and are requiring all crews to have an escort to limit the amount of impact we have on the Molokai community. There are limited flights in and out of the Molokai, so we ask that every crew plan ahead and have the whole crew return to Maui on the escort boat.
We are honored to host this race and follow in the tradition of our ancestors. We hope you also have the opportunity to connect with the essence of the channel, the islands, the ocean and the people. You know, the name of the channel itself holds significance in it’s meaning, to raise and encourage expertise and skill. A perfect testing ground for the Ka’iwi.
We hope to see you here on Maui and we will do all we can to accommodate your needs during your stay and travels.
