Fathers Day Regatta

Nanakuli 6-21-2009Happy FaNanakuli on Regatta dayther’s Day!  Dundee kicked off the day’s celebration with a 4:45 wake-up call so we could trek to the other side of the island for the Father’s Day Canoe Club Regatta.  Competitive paddling is a not-to-be-missed cultural tradition; this is his first year on a team, and today, his first competitive race.  Up with the birds, we hit the beach just as the sun rose behind us, and the water glistened silently as the beach slowly awakened to paddlers, coaches and onlookers by the hundreds.   What’s not to love…the perfect beginning to a spectacular day!  Race over - 7th Place
