Aloha!



We are putting together our 3rd Hudson River Cup Race and Polynesian Ohana Festival at Maxwell Place Park in Hoboken, NJ on July 27th!



The Race and Luau:


The Hudson River Cup is the first outrigger canoe, SUP and sea kayak races of their kind on the Hudson River along the Hoboken Shore. We welcome elite and experienced paddlers willing to take on the challenge of the Hudson River and New York Harbor against the dramatic backdrop of the Manhattan and Jersey City Skyline against the shadow of the Statue of Liberty. Outrigger canoes (OC1/OC2) and surfskies will race out and back to the Statue of Liberty (8-miles). Stand up paddle boards and kayaks will race out and back to Colgate Clock in Jersey City (5-miles).

This year’s Ohana Festival will feature events for people of all ages including presentation about the rich history of outrigger canoeing, children craft tent, free stand up paddling boarding, live music, Polynesian dance, and Hawaiian food.

OC2 with KB! http://forum.lotussports.com/discussion/628/oc2-with-kb Fri, 10 Nov 2017 00:49:29 -0500 erika 628@/discussions
Before we started our practice the high school kids were out for their practice. I counted 18 OC6s! I watched them do timing, blending and turning drills for probably 25 minutes, in a loop between 2 buoys about 500m apart. Fun to watch these kids paddle and handle the boats and the surf like pros.

Looking forward to paddling in 2018...springtime!

Happy Paddling!
