I started competitive paddling on the Hawaiian outriggers in 1998 on the Island of Hawai’i. Upon returning to Edmonton, I picked up the sport of Dragon Boating. With the arrival of the outrigger canoes in 2005, I returned to that sport. I have raced both small and large outrigger canoes at local, national, and international races. My most memorable races include The Big Boat Race in Leduc; Queen Lili’uokalani Race, Hawaii and World Outrigger Sprints, Tahiti.
Before Hawai’i, I spent many hours paddling ‘Canadian Canoes’ and owned several recreational kayaks. I taught flat water canoeing for several years for the City of St.Albert and St.Albert Catholic Schools.
As a veteran Leduc Boat Club paddler, it is my pleasure to share my sports knowledge with others of all ages.
