2 dayS: 3 raceS
The third stage of Koa Nui was a distance race
from Makapuu to Magic Island. Zolt Szadovski
and Pat dolan lead the pack on their surfskies finishing in just under two hours. Will
Richenstein was meters away from the finish
when his rudder struck a coral ledge, disabling
his steering. This allowed Kalei Hahookele to
claim first in OC1 with 2:03. Travis Grant, who
took 3rd helped guide Will's canoe to the finish
and to second place. lindsey Shank won the
women's division. By all accounts it was gruelling and exciting with many stories of close
encounters with whales.
