Road2Molokai Campaign by Taliscrew

Our Sponsor Taliscrew has launched the Road2Molokai Campaign and VRC is proud to be part of it.

Join us over the next 4 months as we count down the race with our supported Talis Crews from around the world. The 2017 Moloka‘i Hoe is scheduled for Oct. 8, 2017.

Since 1952, Moloka‘i Hoe – the world’s most prestigious outrigger canoe race – has perpetuated one of the most important and historic cultural traditions in Hawai‘i and Polynesia. The Molokai Hoe honors outrigger canoe paddlers from around the world. Paddlers will test the limits of physical and mental strength, endurance, courage, determination and teamwork, all while battling nature’s most extreme elements. Follow Talis Crew’s Road to Molokai, follow our blog on, as we share their stories and journey on achieving greatness.
