HAWAIIAN CANOES

In the year 2003, something very good happened. For ALL my life, I had wanted to participate in a race of CANOAS HAWAIIANAS (Hawaiian Canoes). With the base of the competition in Panama, and knowing a little better what it meant to paddle switching rowing sides, I got into the idea of finding a race in Hawaii to go paddling. At the time it was not that difficult – the judges of the LongBoard tournament, my friends Carlon Hanley and Kimo Miranda and some of the participants, Tony Roesh and Eddy were Hawaiians. Neil Khan, of Kayak Jaco, and I had the Canoes, and we had a group of people targeted to jump into the water and make a team to go to Hawaii. We entered a race called the QUEEN LILIUOKALANI CANOE RACE: the race with the most participants in the world. The race is for men and women and involves 30 kilometers of rowing. It was on The Big Island, in Kailua, Kona.

 

The women racers of Kailua, 30 km away, went west and the men returned by the same place to reach Kailua. 300 canoes went in each outing, with groups of 6 paddlers in each canoe, all aligned to the exit. Our group was Rolando Mayorga, Neil Kahn, Guma, Juan Carlos Campos, Fernando Gurdian and myself. We repeated this experience for two years. The second (2004) we did two races, one in Kailua, Oaho and one in Kailua, Kona: an unforgettable experience.  As a curious fact, we won the “CHOQUE ALOHA” prize in both races, that is, the team with the most Aloha feeling of the competition.

This second group was: Fernando Gurdian, Rolando Mayorga, Miguel Sánchez, and Miguel Sánchez Junior, of Café Rey and myself with Carlton Hanley, my Hawaiian friend, who was the helmsman. In 2003, Alejo Pacheco, went to the World Championship of Ireland, in Easkey. At the time he lived in Italy and was able to connect with that group. In that competition, they asked him to make a new world cup here in Costa Rica. When Alejo arrived at CRC, we met and started rallying the idea. We accepted the challenge without questioning anything.​
