Our thanks to Hui Wa‘a o Waikinikona for such a wonderful day of sprint racing out on Green Lake. Our paddlers had a great time getting out there on the water and competing with the all the clubs. Even thought we didn’t always have full CROCC crew padding we were able to get all paddlers out there who wanted to race with other teams. Big Mahalo to Alex Rohr for jumping in and representing CROCC with the other youth teams from Kikaha o Ke Kai and Hui Heihei Wa‘a. Also we would like to congratulate Cris on her V1 race though it was a hull finish with a first place win, great way to stick the dismount (Wicked Grin)!
Mahalo to all the clubs that made this race possible by providing canoe to support all of the events.
