Ocean Masters

Team NZ/Hawaii won the 52nd annual Hawaii Modular Space Molokai Hoe on October 12 by almost 5 minutes. The 41 mile race is considered the world championship of long-distance outrigger canoeing. Team NZ/Hawaii comprises four Kiwis (Rob Kaiwai, Maui Kjeldsen, Eugene Marsh and Andrew Penny) and 5 Hawaiian paddlers (Raven Aipa, Thibert Lussiaa, Kea Paiaina, Karel Tresnak and Bill Pratt). Says Pratt, “I think one of the greatest things we’ve found by sticking together through the years is: Don’t try to force seriousness; remember that we do want to win, do want to compete, but we’re also here to have fun and enjoy each other.”
