Outrigger canoeing

Outrigger canoes can be paddled by one (OC-1), two (OC-2), four (OC-4), or six people (OC-6) sitting on or in a central hull with an “ama” to one side to provide stability. The six person canoes are 45′ long and weigh approximately 400 lbs.

There are three outrigger canoe clubs in Petaluma: He’e Nalu Outrigger Canoe Club Marin-Sonoma, Lokahi Outrigger Canoe Club, and Ohana Wa’a Outrigger Canoe Club. Combined, they have about 200 members, including masters and juniors paddlers who paddle recreationally as well as competing regularly and worldwide.
