Bribie Island Mahalo Outrigger Canoe Club

By Alistair Gray

It’s 6.30am down by the Sunset Café and a fun crew of paddlers are about to set out for a training run. They hit the water with lots of smiles, chatter and the expectation of a good workout and plenty of fresh air as they take in the breathtaking views from the Pumicestone Passage.

The Bribie Island Mahalo Outrigger Canoe Club has been in operation for about six years. President Helen Roe proudly talks about the exponential growth of the club which now has 72 members, many of whom are over the age of 70. Paddlers venture out on to the passage daily, with race crews training three days per week.

The club regularly competes in state competition events, generally finishing in the middle of the pack and constantly improving in performance. The club also recently hosted the South Queensland Zone Small Craft Regatta at Crest Park, which proved to be a fabulous opportunity for Bribie locals to see the canoes in action.
