HVA Kailua Bay Blitz

Aloha Gang,

Due to issues with permitting at Waimea Bay we have moved the 3rd race in the HVA Summer Series to Kailua Bay. The race date has also changed. We will be holding the race on Saturday July 17th. Please see the attached map for the race course. Registration will be up shortly so be sure to check back.

The new course should be a blast with some upwind and a fun surfing segment. Hope to see you all there!

HVA Summer Series

Event Description: 

Check out Hawai'i Va'a Association's 2010 schedule.
Updated schedule!

The Sand Island race will be moved to May 29, 2010. Race course and location remain the same. Registration for this race should be up by Thursday April 29th. We will again feature a tiered race fee system that will depend on whether you need to borrow a canoe, will loan your canoe, or will have your own but not loan it out.

For this season anyone in attendance will be allowed to purchase additional raffle tickets for the prize drawings after the races. All proceeds from these raffles will go towards offsetting the cost of sending HVA's youth team to Tahiti for Hawaiki Nui 2010.

Events will get progressively longer in 2010. The season culminates with the Race Around the Hat which features a longer race course. There will be seasonal point totals and awards for the series winners so start practicing your V-1 technique! We will be updating the schedule with technique clinics that are open to all ages. Keep your eyes peeled for updates.

Also, be sure to come out for the PA'A races this winter and spring to enter the V-1 division.
