Congratulations to the 12 crews that represented Keaukaha at the State’s Regatta on Oahu this year. We took all our #1 ranked crews from the Big Island Moku series and they did well. Our club placed #11 out of 58 clubs and #1 in our Division AA.
It was Keaukaha Smiles all day long.
How it stacked up
The big clubs like Lanikai and Hawaiian Canoe club had lots of crews and did well getting them to the podium with Lanikai getting 64% of their crews to a 1st, 2nd or 3rd.
Likewise in the AAA division Puna and Kai ‘Opua got a 3rd and 4th.
And in the AA division we had a large gap to 2nd place Kawahae and Healani Clubs. We had all 12 of our crews make points with about 1/3 getting to the podium.
