Paddlers Open Regatta -- CANCELLED

In response to reducing the spread of COVID-19, we received official word earlier today that the County has pulled all event permits for the month of April. Unfortunately, we have no choice but to postpone Paddler’s Open originally scheduled for April 4, 2020. This also means that all Paddler’s Open groups must stop practicing out of KCC effective immediately. We are working to reschedule the event for later in the year but that will be TBD depending on everything that happens and how it unfolds.

Calling all water enthusiasts to the daylong Paddlers Open Regatta to be held April 4, 2020. This is an annual opportunity for novice and experienced paddlers to enjoy the sport of canoe racing and to help fund Kihei Canoe Club youth and seasonal programs.
