Outrigger Race (Sadayori Cup Ogasawara Hakken Jinriki Race)
“Outrigger” is a projecting structure attached to one or both sides of a canoe and has long been in use in Ogasawara as well as the South Pacific Ocean. The Sadayori Cup is a four-member canoe race that was started as a main event for an annual festival of Ogasawara-jinja Shrine. It has gained popularity with its feeling of exhilaration as well as fun for the participants, resulting in a large-scale event where many people ranging from elementary school students to senior people attend. Each team practices for more than one month before the race. Both participants and spectators are looking forward to seeing how the race will go this year. You can be part of it as one of the spectators this year!
