Steinlager Series

Aston Waimea Plantation Cottages Race


January 19th, 2003The weather looked ominous with a large west swell forecasted.
Winds were suggested to build to 10-20 knots SW adding to the difficulty of
safe passage from Port Allen to the beach fronting Waimea Plantation Cottages.
Sunday came and we were blessed with light easterly winds and a swell that never
developed so it was off to Waimea Plantation Cottages! Forty-one canoes were
on the starting line of the long and short course with one canoe not finishing
due to a freak wave breaking the ama.

Other than this one incident, everyone made it safely getting some great exercise.
Hipo Princena came in first for the men in the long course and Katy Curtis was
first finisher in the women’s division. In the short course it was Thomas
Oliver in first for the men and Jo Hookano for the women. The number of OC-2s
is building, and that’s exciting to see. (complete results below.)

Aston Waimea Plantation Cottages provided a great finish with a large tent set
out on the lawn fronting the beach and swimming pool. Here they served an ono
hot lunch to some very hungry paddlers. You couldn’t ask for a more fantastic
setting. Although we lacked good tradewind weather, it was a perfect day thanks
to our sponsors and participants.

a.m. at Kukuiula Harbor in Poipu. For further info, call Tom Bartlett at 826-5503
