Since 1987, the Hawaiian Sailing Canoe Association has been leading the charge to 'learn, revive, educate, and practice ancient Hawaiian skills as they relate to sailing canoes and the Hawaiian culture.' Team OluKai, captained by master steersman Marvin Otsuji, broke the longstanding record in the Na Holo Kai race and captured the overall 2008, 2009, 2010. 2011 and 2012 season championships. At each stop throughout the Hawaiian island chain, Marvin and his team offer free canoe rides to locals and tourists, educating them on the cultural and historical importance of the craft.
