Samoa presents the Alo Paopao Festival.
A vibrant, inclusive and fun celebration of outrigging regattas, music and culture.
Building on the success of the inaugural 2017 event, the Sheraton to Sheraton 2018 will again see paddlers compete in a 30 kilometre race between Apia’s iconic Sheraton Aggie Grey’s Hotel & Bungalows
In conjunction with Tahiti’s premier Te Aito V1 24 kilometre race, the third international Le Aito Samoa will take place ahead of the Alo Paopao Festival 2019, on Saturday 17 August 2019.
