Created by the Hawaiian Sailing Canoe Association (HSCA), Wa‘a Kiakahi is an event dedicated to traditional Hawaiian canoe sailing and the education of its history.

Contrary to ordinary outrigger canoe paddling, the HSCA races honor how the ancient Hawaiians actually traveled between the islands: members do not make crew changes and they travel every island channel that connects the Hawaiian Islands.

Schedule of 2016 Events:

Friday, June 3, 3:00 p.m.

Arrival of sailing canoes on Kā‘anapali Beach and a traditional Hawaiian welcome ceremony after 10, six-man crews complete an approximate 27-mile race from Kahului Harbor.

Saturday, June 4, 9:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.

Sailing canoe rides for all ages, picture storyboards and “talk story” opportunities with race team members (including former Hōkūle‘a crew members) about celestial navigation and the history of the Hawaiian sailing canoes.

Sunday, June 5, 8:00 a.m.

Sailing canoe send-off and traditional Hawaiian farewell ceremony for 10, six-man crews as they race approximately 27 miles from Kā‘anapali to the island of Moloka‘i.
