2007 Expedia.com Kauai World Challenge Kalihiwai to Haena Pre-race

May 10, 2007 – 4:00 pm

On the Thursday, before the main Kauai World Challenge relay race on Saturday, there was an 11 mile pre-race from Kalihiwai to Haena. It was a beautiful day with large swells coming in from the north-east. It was getting so big that the organizers considered canceling the race. I used a borrowed Polaris OC1. What I learned was that if you are going to borrow a boat, you should bring your own seat. The problem was that the seat was too “loose.” My butt slipped around in it and I was not able to control “flying the ama” as much as I would want to. This was important especially since the surf was so big. I felt I did well. See the results on OCPaddler.
