PA'A Koa Nui Race 2009 -- March 7, 8, 2009

This year PA'A's 2nd annual Koa Nui Race event is bound to determine who Hawaii's best OC1 coastal water paddlers are. This unique race format presents 3 stage races over 2 days to test each paddler's ability in both flat water and surfing conditions. Last year's 2008 Koa Nui Race drew Hawaii's best athletes from Maui, Kauai, Big Is., and Oahu as well as international competition from Australia, Japan, and New Zealand. Wedded couple Kai and Lauren Bartlett managed to out-paddle the field and walk away as the Koa Nui Champions for 2008 and they will definitely be looking to repeat this year.

Races are designed for all skill levels, with 2 separate courses (short and long) for each race stage. Paddlers are encouraged to race all 3 races, but for those who are only able to paddle in one stage will be allowed to do so. Cumulative overall times will determine winners.

March 7, 2009 Saturday -- Stage 1 and 2
Stage 1 -- 2 mile time trial in Koko Marina
Stage 2 Long Course -- 8 miles from Rabbit Is. to Hawaii Kai Shack; Stage 2 Short Course -- 4 mile Hawaii Kai Triangle

March 8, 2009 Sunday -- Stage 3
Stage 3 Long Course -- 18 miles from Rabbit Is. to Waikiki (Molokai Hoe finish site); Stage 3 Short Course -- Hawaii Kai to Waikiki (9 miles)
