New Hope Canoe Club proudly presents the 6th Annual "Malama Mokauea" Race to be held on Saturday, April 21, 2018. Our theme this year is "Renewing Old Friendships" which is something we must all do from time to time. We should never forget old friends. This years race is dedicated to paddling brother, coach, friend and Hawaiian Warrior, Cory Mehau who has been a paddler and coach for many years out on the windward side. Please join us for a day of fellowship. We will continue the tradition of including the double hull canoe in this years race once again and challenge the strong to paddle in our Canoe Tug Of War. There will also be V1 & V3 divisions in this years race in support of the Aloha Aito race scheduled for July 7.
Race Background: The name of our race is Malama Mokauea as we have partnered with the Mokauea fishermens association to help with the care and maintenance of Oahus last fishing village. It was an important cultural and historical site and continues to provide marine education and conservation to our youth and community.
