Renegade Paddlers please: with your name and phone number. That way, you'll be in the loop for plan changes etc

Are you in great shape, tough, strong, fun-loving and athletic? Whether you can already paddle or not, if you have determination and muscles come out and see if you like paddling with us. We're the "unclub". We don't do regatta and (unless you've committed to do a long distance race with us), we don't pressure you to be at every practice. You show up when you want. You don't show up when you don't want.

We are not a "recreational" club. We are serious about paddling hard and expect everyone to pull their weight. This is an athletic, demanding experience. We just eliminate the pressure and personalities that make people nuts at regatta clubs. We do expect everyone to get along in a fun and tolerant way so there is an initial try-out period where you can see if you like being with us and we can see if you'll be a good fit with our hui. We expect traditional protocol in the canoe and cooperation with the coaches, Karen & Malama.
