Pohoiki Bay Canoe Race...


We had a Canoe race down at Pohoiki Bay about a week ago, the weather was awesome (especially after weeks & weeks of rain!), and everyone was out enjoying the sunshine! The racers started showing up before 7:00 AM and by 7:45 there were canoes everywhere! All of the great colors shining in the sun, wonderful sight. I recently joined the Puna Canoe Club, great club with awesome coaches (yes I am currying favor ;)) a tough work out but very rewarding. Come join us! Or at least buy Chili Tickets (our first fundraiser for canoes, etc... repairs).

Doesn't it look speedy though, they just fly through the water! I hear a good crew can actually skim across the tops of the waves, wow!

Me to :( I have to wait until Wednesday for next practice! And then we use the Double hull (Holds 12!) or the single hull (Holds 6). I can't wait to get in one of these single or double man canoes, I bet I huli (flip over into the water) very first thing!
