Results of the 2018 Kauikeaouli Challenge in Keauhou Saturday (March 17)

By Jane Bockus | Special to Hawaii 24/7

This event is a race primarily for Recreational Paddlers, and both courses began outside Keauhou Bay, with the 3 mile Short Course making a turnaround a Double Hull Canoe outside Kahaluu, and the 4.5 mile Long Course going to the turnaround at Magic Sands. The race was held Saturday, March 17, 2018.

With a total of 18 entries (9 racing on each course), this event is really growing, and many of the paddlers who usually participate only recreationally, have now voiced an interest in joining in teams for the regatta racing season.

After all the canoes had crossed the finish line, awards were presented, and the participants enjoyed a great brunch prepared by the super-chefs at Keauhou.
