Golden Masters Get Gold
State regatta meet well represented.
Out of the three clubs representing Molokai, the crews racked up a few fourth places and one first place at this year’s State Championship regatta.
“Everybody feels happy about the results,” said Liko Wallace, president of the Molokai Canoe Racing Association (MCRA).
Molokai hosted this year’s meet, and in theme of the 60th annual Hawaii Canoe Racing Association (HCRA) State Paddle Race, honored four paddlers who founded Molokai canoe clubs.
August Rawlins Jr. founded the island’s oldest canoe club, Molokai Canoe Club, in 1963; Mervin Dudoit started Mana`e Canoe Club in 1979; and Ron and Cammie Kimball started Wa`akapaemua Canoe Club in 2002.
