2012 Kawaihae Long Distance Race Results

— May 12, 2012 —

The Kawaihae Canoe Club held it's annual nine mile long distance race on Saturday, May 12, 2012. Conditions were moderate as the paddlers raced from Kawaihae Harbor north to Red Hill and back to Kawaihae Harbor.

Congratulations to Kai 'Opua, who not only fielded 17 crews in the race, but whose mens and womens teams ended up combining for a total of 6 division wins. It was a great day and a great way to start off the 2012 regatta season!
