Due to some issues with permitting Race #3 of the HVA summer series has been moved to Kailua Bay. Here's the new race course. The date has also changed. The race will now be held on Saturday July 17. So mark your calendars. We will once again have give aways from Maoli Wa'a. For this race we will also be giving away Kialoa's brand new paddle!

Check out HVA's 2010 event schedule. All races are open to any rudderless single person canoe. The series will include overall points and awards for season winners. Races get progressively longer as the season moves on. Make sure to get in your V-1 and start practicing!
More details about race courses, entry fees, and registration will be posted as the season approaches. Be sure to check back or just subscribe to our RSS feed for updates.
Just an update on a couple of developments for the upcoming event.
Race day schedule is going to be tweaked a bit. We have enough entries that a third men’s heat has been added. This should not make the day any longer since the heat races will only be one lap of the race course.
Open Men heat 1 10:00
Open Men heat 2
Open Men heat 3
Novice and 15 and under 12:00
Open Women/18 and under 1:00
Open Men final 2:00
Secondly, your heat times count. Your overall time for the day will be the total of BOTH your heat time and finals time. (if you qualify) Both races mean something!
Lastly, the heat course and final course will take different routes. One will go around Chinaman’s Hat clockwise while the other will go counterclockwise. We are working on a better course map now and will have it posted by Monday.
