Paddling an outrigger canoe takes more than just muscle. It takes coordination and focus, with six paddlers working as one. Consequently, when bodies and minds come together, the 40 foot, 400-pound canoe, glides forward seemingly effortlessly. It is a feeling that can’t be duplicated any other way. Most of all, it’s a killer workout that gets you out on the water, in probably the nicest urban paddle spot around. In addition, our club participates in outrigger canoe races during the summer months. Outrigger canoe racing requires hard work, dedication, and commitment, but at the end of the day, it’s a ton of fun. We even host our own race, Da Grind, right on beautiful Alki Beach.
