Va'a outrigger canoe for the men's V6 at Anse Vata Beach for the 2011 Pacific Games.

Outrigger canoeing, mostly using va'a canoes, has been contested at the Pacific Games since the 1995 edition held in Papeete, Tahiti. The va'a rudderless outrigger has been raced at all regattas, although the "Galaide II" outrigger canoe with rudder has also been used.[1] Tahiti has dominated the competition since inception, topping the medal count at all regattas the country has attended.
