In response to 143305: Regatta in Kona this weekend?, posted by Harry A2 on Saturday, 11 May 2019, at 11:29 a.m.

Aloha Harry,
Paddler Lawrence here again. :-)
This weekend, today, was the sort-of season-opener race. It was a Long Distance race in Kawaihae. I believe there were 20+ canoes in the women's race and when they finished, 40+ canoes in the men's race. Afterwards medals and a great lunch provided by the Kawaihae Canoe Club. There will probably be something about it in the Sports section of the West Hawaii Today tomorrow. Or not, sometimes no one remembers to turn the results in to the paper. :-)

The official Regatta season starts next weekend, Saturday, May 18. The 1st Regatta is at the Kona Pier, roughly from 7am to 5pm. There will probably be over a thousand people on the Pier, so if you drive along Alii past the Pier, you will see it. The keiki crews race in the morning, then adults in the afternoon. The 2nd regatta is also at the Kona Pier the following Saturday, May 25. A couple weeks later is the 3rd Regatta, again at the Kona Pier, then all the rest are in Hilo.

Come on down and walk around the Pier. Buy a cookie or a tshirt. Visit with a weird paddler like me! It's all fun.
