Malia Launched April 15

Launching River Bird
Thanks to all who helped launch the new Malia OC-6 today. We even have a name for her, "Manu Kahawai"...or "River Bird". I know she is little bit twisted from old age but she was obviously so happy to be in the water again today!..... and really fast!!!! ....against all odds! Boats have spirits...... No question about that! She just loved the work that Tony, Bob, John E, John R and I and the rest of you did to make it possible for her to get back into our water again against all is clear to me after steering her today that she is fast and frisky despite her age. She is clearly with us in spirit and delighted to join our paddling Ohana. Our canoe Ohana is an incredible growing thing and I thank everyone for being a part of that. Thanks everyone and I look forward to a great summer paddling with all of you.

2017 Season!

It's almost time for the 2017 paddling season to start! All existing members should have gotten their forms and checks in to ensure they retain their preferred paddling times and groups.

We will start paddling the week of April 17th with one boat and will eventually launch our 2nd boat and then towards mid to end May will welcome our new unlimited Malolo! Stay tuned for naming, blessing and dedication ceremony information.

If you are an existing HROCC member and have not gotten an email from Team Cowboy to renew or missed the renewal meeting, send us an email at 

If you are interested in joining our club, check out the membership page. We are stoked to be able to offer a new student (18-21) membership rate of $80.

We will again offer our Newbie Paddle sessions beginning in May, once the air and water temp have warmed up. Check back for dates these sessions will be offered. New paddlers will need to attend 3 sessions prior to joining. Those with prior qualifying water experience will be considered on a case by case basis.

See YOU on the water!
