The club invites new and returning paddlers, their families, and community members to our annual meeting at the HANALEI CANOE CLUB.
This is a time to sign-up for the 2023 paddling season, learn about the clubs, and elect the Steering Committee for HCC and the board for HHCC.
Membership registration forms can be downloaded here Membership Forms.
The Hanalei Canoe Club paddling season runs from February through October, starting with long-distance racing.
The regatta or sprint races begin in May and culminate with the HCRA State Championship Race in August. The long-distance season continues with the Na Pali Challenge here on Kauai, the Queen Lili‘uokalani Race on the Big Island at Kona, and the biggest challenge of the season, the 41.8 miles race from Moloka‘i to O‘ahu. It's truly an experience to remember.
Our club comprises two divisions; the Youth Division comprises girls and boys 10-18 years of age, and the Adult Division includes women and men 19 years of age and up.
Each year we sponsor the Tai Hook regatta at Hanalei Bay. Our three major fundraisers to help defray operating costs, including annual insurance dues and the upkeep of our facility and equipment, are the Haena to Hanalei 8-Mile Run/Walk in June, Hanalei-Tahiti Fete in July, and the Luau at the end of July.
Being a Hanalei Civic Canoe Club member is a beautiful, unique experience. You can make friends, learn to work as a team, and strengthen your minds and bodies. Hopefully, we take all that we know and apply it to our everyday lives. We are truly blessed to be able to paddle our canoes in a place as beautiful as Hanalei Bay!
