Results of Saturday’s (Aug 11) Auntie Mary Jane Kahanamoku Race, sponsored by Keauhou Canoe Club and Kona Athletic Club

Begun over 23 years ago by one of the founders of Keauhou Canoe Club, Mary Jane Kahanamoku, this event is popular now for its all MIXED teams format (3 women and 3 men in each crew) – today saw teams of paddlers come from Puna, Hilo, Honaunau, Waikoloa, Milolii and Kailua-Kona and Keauhou. Following the conclusion of the races, a delicious lunch was enjoyed, and medals were presented to all participants.

The 6.75 mile short course was for the Recreational Division (not regular racers) as well as teams with all paddlers over age 60 as well as a Juniors Division for age 18 and under (the youngest participant today was age 10, and oldest paddler was 74). All canoes started outside Keauhou Bay and finished inside Keauhou Bay at the Fetter’s Landing at the old Doc Hill Estate.

The 9.5 mile long course, had both Koa and Glass canoes participating, in the Open age group as well as ages 40+ and 50+ paddlers.
