Na Wahine O Ke Kai Part 1

This is the world championship of long distance outrigger canoe racing. 41 miles across open ocean (some of the deepest waters on earth), from the island of Molokai to Duke Kahanamoku Beach on Oahu. Women fought for 20 years to be allowed to use the canoes for this race that was initially exclusive to men. These canoes are based on the traditional canoes that travelers from Polynesia used to discover the islands of Hawaiʻi.

Please also check out Mindy Clark's videos from the entire race weekend. Mindy has done the race 24 times (and won 10 times!) and is videoblogging the race this year.

Beach Walks with Rox (Part 2 will be posted late on 9/25/06.)
