Aloha to all:

We regret to inform you that after much thought and consideration we have chosen to postpone our 40th Annual “Pau Hana” Industry Races.

We have chosen this decision based on the safety and well being of our ohana, fellow team mates, community participants and vendors/sponsors alike.

We will continue to watch and reassess the situation in hopes to move the event to a later date this year depending on time and different scenarios that may occur. Mahalo to all who have supported and worked hard on this event thus far.

We appreciate your understanding in this situation and know that the health and wellbeing to all around us are at our utmost importance.

Mahalo for doing your part thus far. Stay healthy & safe!

Lahaina Canoe Club welcomes all Maui businesses to participate in its annual fundraiser.
