Welcome to Cook Islands Canoeing Association

Te Aito is the Pacific’s supreme long distance event

2018 Date will be confirmed soon!

Te Aito is the Pacific’s supreme long distance event for individual V1 rudderless outrigger canoe racing. Each year Te Aito events are held throughout the region and since joining the international Te Aito circuit franchise in 2011 alongside Tahiti, Aotearoa, Noumea, and Australia, we have had elite international competitors from these countries visit the Cook Islands to compete in our events. The drawcard for Elite paddlers is not only the high level of competition, but the financial reward & prizes offered at each event and hospitality & camaraderie at the wrap-up party following the days racing.

Our vision is to advance Te Aito Cook Islands as the quintessential event for elite paddlers from around the globe to visit the Cook Islands annually in preparation for prestigious Te Aito Tahiti held in July.
