Haunani Paddling Clinics, Montreal, QC

Haunani Outrigger Club / Club Outrigger Haunani is pleased to host a 3-day series of OC6 paddling clinics from June 24-26, 2022 with Puakea coach Paolo Ameglio of the Florida Paddling Hui. This series is supported by a CORA Clinic Grant and is open to all CORA Members, subject to space limitations.

Info on coach Paolo Ameglio:
Born in Panama, Paolo spent much of his time on the Pacific waters of its isthmus. He found competitive paddling as an adult and has been active in the sport for the past 15 years. As a member of Team USA Dragon Boat, he has become a part of the coaching staff for the national crew. Outrigger paddling has been an evolution as he discovered the benefits of small boat paddling to improve his performance in both the OC-6 and dragon boat. The feel of community and friendship that comes from this sport is one of the main passions in his life. He joined the Puakea ohana as a Puakea coach in 2017. Every time he has the opportunity to work with someone new and watch them grow, he also grows as a coach and as a paddler.


Location: Pine Beach Park, Dorval, Quebec and on Lac St. Louis, on the St. Lawrence River.
