OIST Haarii Club

Closed for Winter...


Who we are

OIST Haarii boat club was born out of our passion and enthusiasm for dragon boat races and Okinawan culture! OIST is invited to the annual Haarii race at Maeganeku port and we always have a great time engaging with our Onna neighbours and trying our best to compete with the professional fishermen and hotel crews.

Now we have our very own Haarii boat and are able to practice year-round (at Seragaki port). If you want to create OIST history and win the local Haarii race, we are going to need to get plenty of practice in!

Want to know more about Haarii racing? Please join our Facebook page or e-mail Teo (theodoros.bouloumis@oist.jp), or Harry (harry.wilson@oist.jp).


Regular club practices at Seragaki throughout the year will complement the race-focussed practices at Maeganeku in May and June. If you want to receive regular information about it, join our Facebook group or e-mail us!
