At some point in their paddling lives, most outrigger enthusiasts will entertain thoughts of racing across the Ka'iwi Channel, after all, the Moloka'i Hoe and the Na Wahine O Ke Kai ( women's race) are historically the World Championships of Outrigger Canoe Changes Racing. For the crews that travel from another country to do this race, the logistics, preparation and planning for a successful crossing, will be as challenging as the great race itself, so why not learn from the experience of those gone before you.
Over the past 19 years of racing this Event, The Mooloolaba Masters/Sen Masters, have won nine Masters’ and four Senior Masters’ Titles, usually in the top 10 or 20 overall out of 100+ canoes, an unparalleled feat. In this Documentary, we follow the Crew in the 2010 Event, as they prepare, race and discuss the formula that made them so successful. I'm sure on viewing, you discover their secrets and follow in their awesome wake.
Time to partner-up and join in the fun of the Relay races. This type of racing is very popular with everyone and spectator friendly as well.

As journalist and expert kayaker Joe Glickman details the voyage of this Teutonic force of nature, he captures interminable days on the water and nights camped out on deserted islands; hair-raising encounters with crocs and great white sharks; and the daring 300-mile open-ocean crossing that shaved three weeks off her trip. For 332 days Glickman followed Freya’s journey on her blog—along with a far-flung audience of awestruck, even lovesick, groupies—as she took on one terrifying ordeal after the next. In the end, he says, “her vanity and pigheadedness paled next to her nearly superhuman ability to master fear and persevere.”
