Outrigger Canoe Races

The 2020 year has required careful monitoring and successive event cancellations. In an effort to provide paddlers and teams with future certainty, FGPC has scheduled and secured dates for events, races and festivals in 2021. Indeed, no-charge advance registration for FGPC-managed races is now OPEN.

Teams are encouraged to register early for races, without payment, in order to hold your places for our 2021 festivals.
