State Champs Race

State Champs Race
Covering 22 miles, the state championship canoe and surfski race was held today. The average time to complete this course was ~ 3hours.

These are three separate images of a surfski and two separate one person canoes (OC-1). The skill of "flying the 'ama" is shown in the middle pic.

The conditions were a bit windy and rough, making for a challenging race - esp. the surfski kayakers who require exceptional skill to balance in the narrow crafts.

Kala, you again photographed and posted a picture that makes me want to climb on an aircraft and immediately fly to Hawai'i! Great shot with lots of energy in it.
