Final results for Kaua`i Business Canoe Race posted

HANAMA’ULU—A brisk offshore wind and gray clouds threatened the 13th Annual

Kaua’i Business Canoe Race, and that threat was made more ominous as a squall

blew in with the winds, but that could not dampen the spirits of the 75 teams

and their supporters as race organizers moved through the heats with flawless

efficiency.

The overwhelming spirit of fun and fellowship drew the

attention of the morning sun that quickly burned through the gray clouds and

added its warmth to the breezes that slapped the shorebreaks, adding a sense of

excitement to the launching of the canoes positioned in four lanes.

Several

canoes spilled in the shorebreaks on the launch adding more excitement to the

overall competition as spectator and race team tents lined the sand perimeter

of Hanama’ulu Bay where they enjoyed the race.

Overall, there was no

dominant team as teams battled the wind chop on a course that ran head-first

onto the beach.
