Kaua`i World Challenge Canoe Race, Kalapaki Beach
May 8, 2010
Once again the cliffs of Kalapaki echoed the sounds of pahu, ipu, and mele as Ka`Imi members greeted competitors in the Kaua`i World Challenge Canoe Race. Dancers, paddlers, and spectators enjoyed being part of the excitement as canoes sped across the bay to change crews on their way from Wailua to Salt Pond. Picture perfect weather (as you can see from the photos which Jesse Castro has kindly allowed us to use) added to the day’s joyful ambience.
This is the third time that our members have performed for the World Challenge, and we hope it will not be the last. Mahalo to the race organizers for allowing us to be a part of this event.
