Hanalei Canoe Club Long Distance

A lot of people were wondering why there were so many canoes at Hanalei Pier this past weekend.  Namolokama o' Hanalei hosted their long distance canoe race.  The race is an open ocean race that started at at the pier and went down to the Kilauea lighthouse where the canoes then turned around and came back.  The women raced first and the men raced second.  This was the last 6 man canoe hosted on Kaua'i. Local teams will now focus on the larger events including: The Pailolo Challenge, Na Wahine 'o Ke Kai, and of course, the superbowl of paddling, Moloka'i Hoe.
