About Wikiwiki Wahine

Wikiwiki Wahine

Wikiwiki Wahine (pronounced wah-hee-nay) is a Women's Dragon Boat Team, started in 2006. In Hawaiian, our team name translates to "Speedy Women". Our goal is to have a great time and WIN! As one man said, as he watched Wikiwiki Wahine paddle to the start line, "Now there goes a force to contend with!"

A wide range of ages are represented on our team, from 15 to 71. The variety of women adds so much richness to our team.
