Aspiring sailors and adventurers: Welcome to our new Intensives program.
These comprehensive three-day clinics are immersive, hands-on experiences designed to equip you with the skills and know-how to become an expert in a specialized sport or activity.
From January 28-30, 2019, the Sailing Canoe Intensive offers you an incredible chance to get in on the action as a full-fledged canoe crew member. Led by Jason Dameron, a member of the Huaka’i Outfitters team and the steersman and captain of the champion Team Olukai sailing canoe, this three-day Intensive offers more than just a casual sailing experience.
Beginning during the first morning session at Kukui’ula Harbor, you will learn the basics of sailing canoes, from an overview of the parts of the canoe to the techniques of outrigger paddling. Using a blend of tutorials and teamwork, by the afternoon session on day three, you will be ready to serve as a crew member under the leadership of an experienced captain—and you will be well equipped to further your expertise with an additional sailing canoe course or program.
Interspersed with the lessons of the Intensive are a range of other subjects, including cross-training and ocean safety. In addition, to help you with your physical recovery, the Intensive offers a Spa Wet Ritual at the end of each daily session at Hi’ilani Spa, The Lodge at Kukui’ula’s extensive on-site wellness complex.
