Intro to Outrigger Paddling: Sun, Aug 6th

Did you know that we consider the Wa’a (canoe) is considered our 7th member of the crew?  What about the fact that many the Hawai’ian terminology that is used for the human body are also used to describe parts of the Wa’a?   Have you ever wanted to just get out and try paddling an Outrigger Canoe?  Well here is your opportunity to learn about some of the Hawai’ian Wa’a Traditions and to get out on the water.

CROCC is hosting an Intro to Outrigger Paddling event on Sunday, August 6th from 9:30 AM – 11:00 AM.  Come down to Gleason Boat Ramp and meet up with members of the Club, learn about the sport and get out and have fun on the water.

Please RSVP at crocc.events@comcast.net and let us know if you are able to attend.  Not to worry if you are not able to make this Intro to Outrigger Paddling event there will be many more to come.

We look forward to seeing you!
