Results from the Great Waikoloa Long Distance Canoe Race

— August 27, 2012 —

Congratulations to all our Kai 'Opua crews who competed in this year's Great Waikoloa Outrigger Canoe Race. Race conditions were called "brutal" as high winds ripped through the course causing many crews to swamp and not finish and others in the men's race to chase after a turn buoy adrift in the current and waves.
