Paddlers of all ages are training and working towards a spot at the HCRA State Champs which, this year, will be held on Maui. While covering 12th Annual Kala'iomalulani race hosted by Keahiakahoe Canoe Club in Kaneohe Bay, I was introduced to Otis Anslow of Nakoalani Canoe Club, which is located on Kaneohe Marine Base. The club was formed with help from Kai Oni Canoe Club and Wink Arnott because there was a lot of military who wanted to paddle but didn't know how to get into it. "We found a couple of malia canoes on the Marine base, refurbished them and started a club," said Otis. Nakoalani has about 30 members, and their goal is to hold the state race next year on the Marine base. "We have got the perfect location, flat water; it's clean and it's a great way to get the paddling community and military to get to know each other." More and more I notice that paddling is becoming a vehicle to join people together from different walks of life. Yes, we have the very competitive aspect, we have our champs, the rock stars of paddling, but there is so much more. As you go through the magazine, there is one theme that keeps reoccurring – We're all having fun and getting to know each other, and that's the real gold at the end of your race.
