Each 4th of July the Masters Women paddling crews of the Outrigger Canoe Club sponsor a merchandise sale at the Walter J. Macfarlane Memorial Canoe Regatta. Items include T-shirts, tank tops, polo shirts, caps, visors and other items. The sale is a benefit for the Outrigger Duke Kahanamoku Foundation and helps offset costs of running the regatta.
Each year a new design by local artists adorns the merchandise. Among the artists were members Jim Goss, Jimbo Beaumont and Mike Fields. Many were created by Happy Shirts, a local company headed by OCC member Vik Watumull.
The sale takes place on the beach level in front of Duke’s Restaurant in the Outrigger Waikiki Hotel. The sale starts at 8 a.m. and runs throughout the regatta or until all merchandise is sold.
Here is a collection of Macfarlane T-Shirts that have been sold over the years.
