What to wear: It's always good to wear layers in the Bay Area. Fast drying, water-wicking clothes are highly recommended (rash guards, neoprene or board shorts), windbreaker or water-resistant jacket, dive booties or water shoes, hats, sunglasses, sunscreen, and paddling gloves (optional). Refrain from wearing tennis shoes or hiking boots and cotton clothing which soaks up water rather than repels it.
What to bring: Bottled water, small snack (energy bar), towel, change of clothes and your positive energy! You will be fitted with a club paddle if you do not have your own.
Comfort level in the water: Hulis happen (overturned canoe). While they are rare, they can occur. You should be comfortable swimming or treading water for at least three to five minutes in case of a huli (flip).
Join us on the water!
Safety is the #1 priority for having fun while outrigger canoe paddling. The waiver outlines all safety measures that help protect all of us on water and on land. Please ensure to read, sign & submit both our association and our club waivers!
All three waivers must be signed before paddling in a canoe!
MARCH - SEPTEMBER
TOCC's racing season is from March through September. TOCC is a member of the Northern California Outrigger Canoe Association (NCOCA) and races in sprint and long distance races throughout Northern California.
We occasionally travel to Southern California and Hawai'i to compete in long distance races hosted by fellow clubs.
OCTOBER - FEBRUARY
The winter season is the best time to try paddling. The mornings are beautiful, the water is calm and it is the best time to learn and perfect your stroke. If you're new to outrigger, we encourage you to check us out between October and April.
Comfort level in the water:
For safety reasons, you should be comfortable swimming or treading water in the Bay. PFD (personal flotation device) are required for those who do not know how to swim. If you do not own one, one will be provided for you.
