- Age group paddlers must participate in at least 7 races on the long course to qualify for point series awards.
- Novice and Va'a categories must participate in at least 6 races. This allows for no short course Novice division at Keokea and HIPA encourages the use of a rudder at Keokea.
- Only categories with a potential award winner(s) have been listed.
- The two relay races are one (1) participation point each.
- You do not have to be a HIPA member to qualify. Because membership only costs $50 and you would have saved $60 or more if you had joined.

Anyone that uses the HIPA facilities at Honokahau harbor must be a HIPA member in good standing. The general public is able to use the harbor facilities at any time but our club area is only for HIPA members.
