Originating in 1960, the Hawaiian Canoe Club began with John M. Lake and 25 other members with Hawaiian ancestry, with the christened Kokololio-Swift Winds of Waikapu- as the club’s first canoe. Growing in size, the club competed in its first state regatta in 1962, merging paddlers from Hawaiian, Kahului, and Lahaina canoe clubs to create the crews. Hawaiian Canoe Club advocated good relations with other canoe clubs by loaning canoes to other clubs, not only modeling the spirit of Aloha but increasing the popularity of the sport. After transitioning into racing primarily fiberglass canoes in 1967, the HCC won its first Maui County Hawaiian Canoe Association Championship in 1985 and continued to win the title every year since. With the HCC still going strong today, leaders created Hawaiian Kamali’i, Inc., a program designed to educate children on Hawaiian culture, religion, navigation, traditional food preparation, and leadership. HCC continues to uphold the tradition of outrigger canoe paddling, focusing on enlightening the youth of key Hawaiian values of respect for nature and people.
