Hawaiian Canoe Races

Payment due date extended to Mon May 27, pay by Memorial Day to guarantee t-shirts and good seat assignment. 

The first two teams formed Meet in Canoe and Bucket List. Its not too late to confirm a team, well need 5 more paid members to form Spur of Moments Underdogs. Vida the teams at hoewaa.WordPress.com. Teams 16 & 17 and 18.

Compete side by side with other teams in authentic Hawaiian canoes. Club teams from Dallas, Austin and Houston will be training you to compete and steer your 5-person team across the finish line, winners will have Texas bragging rights for the best paddlers in Texas.

Have some fun on Lake Ray Hubbard paddling outrigger canoes and racing against others.

The all-Hawaiian event offers fun for all whether you’re in shape or not. The $30 per person fee gets you lunch from Jo Dawgs gourmet food truck, including Maui Wowi dogs; sides; drink; t-shirt and use of club paddles and canoes.

I have been paddling with this group for several months and you will be entertained and cultured with everything Hawaiian including Hula dancers; music and language.

Individuals fear not, RSVP and I will place you in teams of five so sign up now for best chances of getting on a winning team.

If you would like to practice prior to the event, we will practice every Saturday and Sunday in May.

    Strong support for the Hawaiian Hoewaa Canoe Club was much appreciated, mahalo! Had a great time and the Bucket list teams were outstanding. First timers on team II turned in remarkable results considering a 30 second crash course on paddling. Bucket List Team I posted the second fastest time of the day amongst 28 timed races. Only .300 seconds away from bring home the prized koa umeke. Thanks for a great memory.

    Hi there Jim, really disappointed I missed the last Hawaiian Canoe race! Please send me your contact telephone number as well as your practice days times and location as I don't feel comfortable attending the race without doing some practicing in fairness to the other members. Looking forward to hearing from you, Kristen Caton

      We have some spots open for Sunday June 9. Sending you email with practice times.

    Since this is rescheduled are 2 spots still available for 6/22?

    • Jim

      I will start building teams upon payment and will get the two of you on one of the teams. Send me you email address.

      June 1, 2013

  • Jim

    Corporate Challenge crews have been anxious and amped up to race tomorrow. And it's our sincere hope that all crews can maintain their buzz till the rescheduled date of Saturday, June 22 at the same location. However, crews or individuals who unfortunately cannot reset their schedules for the 22nd, please contact me for a full refund.

    May 31, 2013

  • Jim

    The Corporate Challenge event tomorrow has been postponed due to a severe weather forecast that could jeopardize participants' safety, welfare and comfort. Recent and on going news media coverage of storm damage to lives & property in Texas, Oklahoma and the Midwest justifies the need for caution. Saturday's severe weather event is expected to fire up in the Metroplex around 3PM with heavy rains, golf ball size hail and 65 mph winds.

    Hey Jim, didn't know if I would be avail but looks like I can make it. Do we have enough for another team and How do I pay?

    May 31, 2013

      I have a seat open on my corporate team. You can pay me in morning or send me email and I'll request $. if you have a guest will try to fill another team.

    Love to have everyone paddle in the race Saturday, I currently have two full Bucket List teams with at least 2 women. I will form a third or fourth on race day if needed. It does not cost anything to watch and have an open invitation to those who would like to watch from the beach. Gourmet food truck will be there where you can buy $10 lunch and $5/$10 t-shirts individually. Mahalo nui loa
