Policies

  • Canoe and Equipment Use Policy
    This policy applies to outrigger canoes, accessories, paddles, tents, trailers, and material or equipment belonging to Kihei Canoe Club.
    • Other than regularly scheduled/published member paddles or ashes/wedding ceremonies, all requests for use of club canoes and equipment must be made in writing to the board and approved in advance by the board or it's representative. Email requests are acceptable.
    • Persons wishing to use the trailer must show proof of a valid driver license and insurance to a board member in advance.
    • All commercial and fundraising events requesting use of club equipment must be coordinated by the Board or it's representative. This includes quoting for equipment use, arranging member participation as required, etc.
    • Non-profit or community organizations may make requests for equipment use through the Board or it's representative in writing and are invited to make a donation to the club.
  • Two Boat Rule
    Members may paddle at any regularly scheduled and published time. As a general policy, two club canoes should always be together on the water during these times. On rare occasions during these times, a board or coach approved steersman with experienced members may take one canoe as long as they paddle within 100 yards of shore between Ko`ie`ie Fishpond and the "river mouth" at Kealia pond. A board or coach approved steersman is the following:
    • has taken the club's steersman's training course and completed the sign off procedure or is recognized by the Board and Paddling community as an accomplished steers person
    • has at least two years experience steering OC-6 canoes in a variety of sea and wind conditions
    • knows how to right a canoe after a huli
    • carries a signal whistle, horn, marine radio or mobile phone
    • will take full responsibility for the crew and canoe while steering it
