Hanohano Outrigger Canoe Club and Huki Outrigger would like to invite you to the 20th Annual Hanohano Huki Ocean Challenge to be held in Mission Bay, San Diego, Ca. on January 23th, 2016.
The Hanohano Huki Ocean Challenge is one of the Longest Running Paddlesport Races in California (OC-1, Surfski, Traditional Paddleboard, Standup Paddleboard and Kayak) We’ve always had a great mix of top level professional athletes and beginners from ages 7-80. I’d like to encourage you to visit our Web site for more details: http://www.hanohano.com/hanohano-huki-ocean-challenge-1/
PFD's and leashes are highly encouraged.
Important Notes on the event:
***Pre-Registration is highly suggested. It will help eliminate delays on race morning as well as cut down on paddler error while registering with our new online format.
***Food…Breakfast snack items and coffee will be available for free in the morning. Lunch will be an additional fee with menu items beginning at $5.00. Please bring cash. The new lunch format allows us account for the increased number of mouths to feed while keeping your race fee below $25.00…Bring a water bottle, we will have Gatorade and water to fill them up. We will also have complimentary Vitacoco and Sambazon
***Raffle: Hanohano OCC still boasts the best Raffle west of the Mississippi…bring some dough and have a chance at a Brand New Huki OC-1 and a ton of other great product from our sponsors and vendors.
***PFD’s are required on all paddlecraft with the exception of Prone paddleboard. Leashes are suggested for use on the long course for OC-1’s and Surfski’s
***No Dogs, Alcohol or Glass are allowed in Mission Bay Park…Rangers will issue hefty fines
***Paddlers are required to know the course and behave in a sportsmanlike manner…Please come to the assistance of fellow paddlers in distress. Paddlers are required to affix their assigned Race bib to their chest so that it is visible to the volunteers on the finish boats. Paddlers must finish between the anchored boat and finish line buoy in Bonita Cove and report their assigned race number. Failure to follow finish protocol will result in a dnf . Don’t be selfish…your behavior affects all race participants.
