In the final event of the 2005 HIPA race series, on a hot, calm day, 69 paddlers raced 31 miles from the ramp at Puako to Honokohau Harbor in Kona. No records were set this year as there was no help from either ocean or winds. A number of solo paddlers did several modified courses from Puako to Kaupulehu or Mahaiula, so no times were given for these folks, but three solo paddlers went the entire distance.

Mother Nature and her howling winds changed the long course today - instead of a start at Keokea and finish at Mahukona, the canoes put in at Mahukona and finished their 14 miles at Kawaihae. Short course 5-1/2 miles started and finished at Kawaihae. The paddleboards started south of Mahukona and finished their 8 miles at Kawaihae.
