Keoki's Paradise in Poipu did a fantastic lunch at their great place and Steinlager was there at the finish providing the thirst quenchers after a hot race!

New names in the winner's circle with Butch Keahiolalo first in the Long Course and Noe Sawyer - womens winner. Short course Keizo Gates and Kim Stuart first respectively Mens' Womens winners.

Some new faces this season with Steve Baker and David beck (winner of the first OC1 molokai Relay) showing up and David showing excellent speed. Time to get ready for the $20,000 Kauai World Challenge.

And speaking of the Kauai World Challenge, we are getting some great committments from Neighbor Island paddlers as well as some folks from Austrailia and California. It will be a great race so plan your trip. Whereever people are coming from, here is an opportunity to get your community involved to get together to get you here to represent them! Get the local pub involved! To help make it affordable many Kauai paddlers will be opening their homes to those who need a place to stay. You will need to rent a car (to get to each relay point) which can be a part of your air package. Right now, from the MAinland best prices to our knowledge are thru Expedia , and Pleasant (1800 2HAWAII). Other options will be listed as they become known. Interisland, call Robert's Hawaii or Rendevous Tours. Accomodations: Radisson Kauai is offering a special as is Wailua Bayview.
