Koa versus glass in prelim regattas.

Hawaii state regattas coming up. OHCRA uses koa canoes it true that koa is optional in the prelim races for other islands and most outer island crews are on glass canoes? Just wondering if a spec glass canoe is faster then a spec koa in a regatta setting ?

Crating OC1 question

Need to crate an OC1 for shipping out of Oahu. Just wondering if anyone can provide contacts for this service and pricing if possible? Any information would be appreciated.

Va'a World Championships

Way to go Hawaii Juniors in the recent distance V6 Va'a championships. Silver...all good. The race with so many international participants should let Olympic committees know that the sport should be recognized. It was good to see that there were standards set for the canoes so no canoe advantage. Maybe those same standards should be applied to future international races...and if adopted by the entire global paddling community.....even our Molokai Hoe. The future looks bright Interesting that Tahiti.

2017 Molo Solo Share Thoughts

I meant to post earlier.

It appears this year's Molokai OC-1 Solo is going to be another exciting one.

Just noticed Kevin Ceran-Jerusalemy is on Maui and looks like racing Ares Pro model. I was wondering if he would return after getting DQ'd last year. The DQ is still up to debate for sure.
