CORA Town Hall October 2023 – The Wahines In The Boat

CORA Town Hall virtual sessions return in October 2023. CORA members and friends are invited to join our Off-the-Water Video Forum Series. Opportunities for questions will be provided in the latter half of these 90-minute session and through the “chat” function. Presentations will be recorded and posted for those with scheduling conflicts.

The October 2023 CORA Town Hall virtual session has been rescheduled for Sunday Oct-15 at 4PM (Pacific) will feature a reunion of the all-Canadian women’s 1985 Molokai Na Wahine crew that placed 5th overall in that race for one of the best ever showings by an all-Canadian women’s crew in 38 years.

Please join us for a roundtable of what it was like to build an outrigger racing crew in 1985 with Canadian Outrigger Hall Of Famers Ruth Matson and Annie Boulding, Canadian Olympians Sheila Taylor and Joanne Woods, and all of the stellar crew members that CORA has been able to locate including Cathy (Nixon) New, Sheila (Chadwick) Cupp, Kathy Gallagher, Gail Timmer, Janice (Henderson) Kyle, and Diane Chippindale. We are looking forward to a special guest appearance by legendary Molokai Na Wahine Board Member “Auntie” Rosie Lum, with recognition of legendary Waikiki Beach Boy Albert “Rabbit” Kekai, who coached the all-Canadian Womens crew for the 1985 Kaiwi Channel Crossing.

Here is the recording of the engaging roundtable of Canadian Molokai 1985 competitors:
