Camaraderie in a Canoe

An Outrigger regatta…

One Hawaiian Canoe Club with their top teen paddlers

Two oli or chants to begin and end the regatta

Three canoes named after the VIP’s

Forty participants from the south who love bacon

Six competitive canoe races

One overturned canoe with inches to cross the finish line

One lost pair of prescription eyeglasses found by one of the teen paddlers in the middle of the ocean

A monetary donation made on behalf of the winning team to fund a trip to the International races in Rarotonga

A morning of camaraderie off the south shore of Maui, PRICELESS…
