With east to northeast trade winds up to over 20 knots, a small field of canoes made the epic 90 mile crossing from Haleiwa , Oahu to Kalapaki Beach, Kauai on Saturday, August 20th. Unfortunately, after under 2 hours of racing, Team Olukai had an equipment malfunction and had to be towed back to Oahu.
Finishing times were:
1. Maui Jim/Tui Tonga/Donny Jones/Kauai 7:09
2. Kaanapali Beach Hotel/ Aukai O Maui/Ray Glauser/Maui 7:10
3.. Aston Whaler/Kamalii O Ke Kai/ Mike Kinkaid/ Oahu 7:53
Mahalo to all sponsors and helpers!
