The mighty crew
*I also completed my first channel crossing paddling back from the Big Island to Maui about 46 miles. Who needs a plane when you can paddle a canoe!
**PAILOLO CHALLENGE: paddle from Maui to Molokai aprox 26 miles. We didn't do to well in this race. Finished almost last but not DFL - whew!
**NA WAHINE O KE KAI (Women of the Sea): This is the mack daddy of all races and what we trained for all these past months... 42 miles total across the Kaiwi Channel starting point on Molokai Hale o Lono Beach finish line Waikiki Beach on Oahu.
Canoes rigged & ready to go
The Na Wahine Team
Heading out to the start line
Finish line: paddling into Waikiki Beach
After being on the ocean for hours paddling, getting in and out of the canoe and escort boat all we want to do is take a nice shower and clean up.... This is a typical shower situation. Any hose will do!
