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 build the sport and get everyone (all the ski paddlers) to try OC-1. It was also created to signify the start of training for the following year, as it used to be the first race post Molokai Hoe, 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. But more than anything it was a good excuse to have a great party!
