2021 Hui Wa'a Kaukahi Calendar of Events

September to December 2021

(updated 9/14/21 )

 

GREEN is the next scheduled paddle, BLUE is the next Club meeting, YELLOW is a Special Event, GRAY is history
THIS COLOR denotes a Saturday or other weekday paddle

Presently Hawaii is in Tier 4 of the State protocols, allowing us slightly larger groups (up to 10 people), but not the use of City & County facilities, nor is it considered safe to share carpools, except when everyone in the car has been fully vaccinated. Here are our version of carpool protocols.

So until further notice, please wear a mask at all times while on the beach (you may remove them once you launch) and maintain a distance of 6 feet (8 feet mo' bettah) between members.

Events that are highlighted in this color still need the Leader to modify the paddle to remove the need for a carpool. If they don't do so in time, the event is considered cancelled

As all County meeting halls and auditoriums are closed for the foreseeable future, all monthly Club meetings have been cancelled. Same for Steerage Meetings. They have been marked in gray.

Stay healthy.

Unless stated otherwise, all groups should be assembled at the start point by 0900, and launched by 0915 at the latest.
The Trip Leader has final say as to whether any individual paddler may join the group, based on the Leader's assessment of that individual's skill, equipment and/or preparation, in light of the ocean conditions of the day.

OTHER NOTES:

Paddle ratings are for average weather and ocean conditions, and are unscientifically assigned and often arbitrary. It is up to each individual to assess the conditions prior to the time of launch in the light of their own experience and ability, and decide whether to go or not. If you decide to go, you must sign the trip roster and read the waiver. No signee, no kayakee. In the event of a Small Craft Advisory (SCA) or higher wind warning*, the Club-sponsored paddle is officially cancelled. Trip leaders should download a copy of the release/waiver by clicking here for a PDF file you can print.

*As broadcast by Radio WBA on UHF weather channels 1 or 2, or announced the night before on commercial television.

"Steerage Board" meetings are held on the second Tuesday of every second month, except where otherwise noted, at the location given in the schedule. These meetings are for the Officers and Advisory Board members to discuss business and decide future activities for the Club, and they are open to any Club member in good standing who has a Club-related issue to be dealt with outside the forum of the General Meetings. Talk to any Club Officer for details, an agenda, or location directions.
