Event Description: 

THE 21st ANNUAL
LANIKAI COLDPACK CLASSIC
Saturday, December 21, 2013

HISTORY: in 1993 when the Lanikai Cold Pack Classic was formed, there were only a handful of OC-1s around, with Kanaka Ikaika Racing Series dominated by Surfskis. Because of this shortage of canoes, the men and women had to race separately. It only allowed OC-1s because we were trying to get everyone (all the ski paddlers) to try OC-1. It was created to signify the start of training for the following year, and used to be held in November. Nobody was allowed to train between the Molokai Hoe and the Cold Pack Classic as it was the first race in the fall, before the Kanaka Ikaika races started in December. It was also a good excuse to have a great party!
