                                 outrigger canoeing, kayaking and surfing. For our first adventure we will be
                                 heading down to the Rainbow Marina at Pearl Harbor to try 6 man outrigger

canoeing. All you need to wear is something you don’t mind getting a little wet and
water shoes or sandals.
         We will not be getting in the water, but you might get splashed. We will meet
at 8:10 on October 14, 2011. Directions to Rainbow Marine it is just past the Pearl
Harbor Memorial next to the scuba shop before you get to the Admirals launch area.
         A little bit about outrigger canoeing history. The outrigger frame work is the
essential design modification that sets outrigger canoes apart from all others. It has
evolved over thousands of years of experimentation as the most efficient way to
stabilize a dugout canoe. Traditionally, the outrigger frame has always been fitted on
the left side of the canoe. The stabilizing framework attached to the canoe hull across
canoe spreader bars by means of traditional lashing techniques using cordage, consists
of two iako or spars, at the outer end of which the ama or float is attached.
         Outrigger canoe racing evolved as a natural extension of the peoples of Oceania's use of these amazing craft for
their everyday survival in fishing the oceans and in traveling between island groups, culminating in epic journeys of up to
and over 3000 miles, journeying in double hulled voyaging canoes.
         Canoe racing became an important part of island life, as much pride and prestige was placed on victory. By 1908
the first outrigger canoe clubs were founded - Outrigger Canoe Club of Hawaii and Hui Nalu. Hawaii became the
birthplace of contemporary outrigger canoe racing; with a governing body being established in 1950, the Hawaiian Canoe
Racing Association. Looking forward to seeing you ―on the water‖!
