Outrigger 101, Saturday August 13, 2022

Aloha! The Columbia River Outrigger Canoe Club is excited to be hosting our Outrigger 101 Workshop on August 13.  We look forward to sharing our love for Hawaiian outrigger paddling with you.  

Six paddlers of various ages and sizes are on a red and white outrigger canoe on the Columbia River. There is a jet ski on the water behind the canoe, and Vancouver, Washington is visible in the background.
