Description

This new book includes the stories and photos of the Moloka‘i to Oahu outrigger canoe race between 2006 and 2016, like the original volume covered the years between the start of the race and 2005. As in the past, each year’s races add more unique stories and photos to the rich history of Moloka‘i-O‘ahu told in this book. For the Moloka‘i Hoe, Tahitian domination has been the big story while on the Na Wahine side, Hawaiian crews emerged as the major force. Special features include a recounting of the harrowing start of the 2012 Na Wahine O Ke Kai race where crews battled 10-foot plus waves that closed out Hale o Lono — told by paddler Norma Creps. Jim Foti’s account of a practice session just two days before the Moloka’i Hoe in 2014 will have readers on the edge of their seats.

    If you paddle outrigger, OC-6, OC-1 or OC-2, you must have this book. The Moloka’i races, both the men’s and the women’s, are considered the Super Bowls of 6 person outrigger canoe racing. This book contains amazing pictures and facts and highlights individuals who mean so much to the sport. I paddle and race and have done the Molo. This book allows me to relive the moments. Tons of pictures you simply will not see anywhere else. Highly recommended!

    —REVIEW OF THE ORIGINAL EDITION—
    For anyone who is interested in Hawaiian canoe racing, this book is excellent. It is not only informative with lots of great information, but also has many great photos. Would make a great gift for anyone interested in canoe racing especially those who have performed at one time in these races and for current paddlers.
