Jon A – Calgary

I just had to let you know about how exciting the night before is…all over the beach at the lagoon in front of the King Kamehameha Hotel-translates as the one who stands alone or apart- people laughing and here are stacks of canoes…just piled up and everyone is rigging and gettting their crews organized and it runs from solemn meetings through people laughing and paddling, etc. The town begins to really get busy with crews from Australia and Hong Kong and the West Coast/ Saw the Canadian crews and they looked all ready to go…The men will watch the wahines take off th en drive down the coast and wait…it is before dawn here as the crew I steer for is from California and they will all met at 6:00 am for the canoe blessing…then the big breakfast…and the race. Hearing too many roosters crowing so got to go…let you know how it all turns out.
