BIG MAHALO to everyone who came on Saturday ready to race!! The Winter Series #2 Race was cancelled due to unsafe weather conditions. There is a possibility that we can reschedule. CROCC really appreciated our fellow paddlers who helped us with set-up/clean-up despite the rain, wind and freezing cold and also racers willing to donate their registrations. We were sad to cancel, but our hearts were full from everyone’s support & aloha. 😄 We love our outrigger community!!
Be on the look out for the announcement of a reschedule!🤙
