Two Arizona outrigger paddlers distinguished themselves in October on small craft, coming second in prone (Vince San Nicolas) and third in women’s OC1 (Shauna Hecker) at their first 31-miler Chattajack Challenge in Tennessee. More than 500 paddlers (SUP, kayak, OC1, OC2, prone, surfski) came out to be part of the challenge. We also had a first place finish in OC2 at Another Dam Race in Parker, AZ. by Ceci Ng and Margaret Coulombe in November. Congrats for representing Na Leo O Ke Kai proudly everyone!

Our Na Leo O Ke Kai outrigger men’s crew was the first from Arizona to compete in the Molokai Hoe, which spans the 41 mile Kaiwi Channel between Molokai and Oahu. We are proud of our club and crew, who dream big and then make those dreams a reality…from creating the first AZ keiki crew and the first AZ women’s crew to go and medal at IVF World Sprints to now, another AZ first…our men’s crew doing the Molokai Hoe.
CONGRATULATIONS: Randy, Rich, Vince, Art, Eric, Steve, Greg, Jon (aka Roko) and Cole. Finish of 82 of 93 in 7:15:04. WAY TO ROCK IT, GUYS!
