The PAʻA Koa Nui Championship is a three stage event that will take place today and tomorrow(March 5th and 6th). Paddlers from all islands (even main-landers)will make the trek to Oʻahu to compete in this championship and see where they stack up against the best paddlers this year.
The first of two events begins at 9:15am and consists of a sprint time trial inside the Hawaiʻi Kai Marina and then right after at 11:15am the second begins -a Makapuʻu to the Hawaiʻi Kai Shack down wind run.
The third and final event will take place tomorrow, March 6th, and will be a Makapuʻu to Anuenue downwinder.
So head on down to the Hawaiʻi Kai Shack to watch some of the best paddlers dual it out today, then to Anuenue tomorrow for the final stage. Be sure to look for ʻOiwi’s own Will Reichenstein and Pat Dolan who are competing in this weekend’s OC1 events!
