What's New
with the Q.L. Races?

Live Tracking for Saturday's Races! This year, the Queen Liliuokalani Race is excited that we have teamed up with the innovative products and services company, DotVision, to bring you live tracking of Saturday's races. You will be able to track your favorite crews and events LIVE. A link to the official site will be published on the website and our Facebook pages prior to the race.

Also new in 2016, we have added MIXED Iron Saturday Races to our schedule! But if you require a canoe for the mixed races - you must act fast! We are only loaning out 10 canoes each for the Mixed Open and Mixed Masters (40+) races. Once we have reached that limit, YOU MUST PROVIDE OR SECURE YOUR OWN CANOE FOR THIS RACE. NOTE, THERE IS NO LIMIT OF ENTRIES. There is only a limit on the number of canoes we are lending out.
