RelayPlay - 27th Annual Hanohano Ocean Challenge

Attention Paddlers:

Hanohano Outrigger Canoe Club   would like to invite you to the 27th Annual Hanohano Ocean Challenge to be held in Mission Bay, San Diego, Ca. on January 29th, 2022.

The Hanohano Ocean Challenge is one of the Longest Running Paddlesport Races in California (OC-1, Surfski, Traditional Paddleboard, Standup Paddleboard and Kayak)  We’ve always had a great mix of top level professional athletes and beginners from ages 7-80.

PFD’s and leashes are highly encouraged.

Important Notes on the event:

***Pre-Registration is highly suggested.  It will help eliminate delays on race morning as well as cut down on paddler error while registering with our online format.

***PFD’s are required on all paddlecraft with the exception of Prone paddleboard.  Leashes are suggested for use on the long course for OC-1’s and Surfski’s

***Food…Breakfast snack items and coffee will be available for free in the morning.  Lunch will be an additional fee with menu items beginning at $5.00.  Please bring cash.  The lunch format allows us account for the increased number of mouths to feed while keeping your race fee low…Bring a water bottle, we will have water to fill them up.

***Raffle: Hanohano OCC still boasts the best Raffle west of the Mississippi…bring some dough and have a chance at a ton of great product from our sponsors and vendors.  Special Thanks to our Presenting Partner Stellar Kayak and Ocean Flight for our Grand Prize, a brand new Stellar Surfski!

***No Dogs, Alcohol or Glass are allowed in Mission Bay Park…Rangers will issue hefty fines

***No refunds

***Paddlers are required to know the course and behave in a sportsmanlike manner…Please come to the assistance of fellow paddlers in distress.

***COVID: If you have symptoms, please stay home.  If you’ve had COVID within 10 days please stay home.  If you are unvaccinated or at risk, please wear a mask
