First-time sponsor of the “Hawaiki Nui Va’a” race

The early 90s marks a shift for Hinano in sports sponsorship.  After hobie cats, the new focus becomes the va’a (outrigger), a traditional sports very popular in French Polynesia. Hinano will be a sponsor for the famous “Hawaiki Nui Va’a” race from its first edition in 1992.
