Results of the 15th Annual Auntie Mary Jane Kahanamoku Heihei

The 15th Annual Auntie Mary Jane Kahanamoku Heihei, sponsored by Keauhou Canoe Club, was held today at Keauhou Bay. Five of the Moku O Hawaii canoe clubs participated in this fun race, which features all mixed crews, consisting of 3 women and 3 men in each canoe.

Two separate races were held – the 6 mile course from Keauhou Bay to Lyman’s Point and back, was for Juniors (under age 18), Novice B (all first year paddlers), and crews of more mature paddlers raced in two upper divisions, age 50+, and age 60+.

Competing on the longer 8 mile course from Keauhou Bay to Casa de Emdeko and back, were the Masters 40+ divisions, as well as Open Koa, Open Fiberglass, and Open Non-Traditional canoes weighing 400 pounds and up, and a non-classified canoe, weighing 200 pounds.

Terry Trinidad and Moke Hauanio prepared a deliciious lunch for all participants, and Kona Brew “liquid aloha” was also served to all adult paddlers. Every racer received a beautiful race shirt compliments of Keauhou Resort, and prizes were presented to the top 3 finishers in each division.
