For the fourth year in a row, the Wounded Warrior Canoe Regatta sets sail on Sunday, Aug. 18 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
The event happens at Fort DeRussy Beach as part of the 12th Annual Duke's OceanFest.
The regatta has become a successful fundraising event after its initial start in 2009 as a tribute to recovering troops, organizers said.
Organized by Malama Na Koa, a Wounded Warrior support program, the event consists of teams going head-to-head in six-person canoes in four separate races between the Hale Koa and the U.S. Army Museum.
Malama Na Koa launched the regatta to assist recovering troops through the "healing power" of the Hawaiian waters.
The first event took place at the Pearl Harbor Marina with 67 teams from the Army, Navy, Marines, Air Force, Coast Guard and other organizations.
Anyone interested in entering the regatta can download the registration form and insurance waiver from the Honolulu Navy League’s website.
