Next week after the Kona race, this epic voyage will happen again. It is filled with culture, history, and a love for the sport of outrigger. I think we would all love to experience this incredible adventure.
MEMOIR OF A VOYAGE: MOKU ‘O KEAWE TO MOKUPUNI ‘O MAUI - JOURNEY TO MY ROOTS
SEPTEMBER 30, 2015 • CALI PADDLER
[Cali Paddlers' roots are often embedded throughout the world's oceans. Our desire to paddle waters beyond our state often runs deep, as we venture to Hawaii, New York, Austrialia, Europe and well, just about everywhere there is water to experience the magic. We are grateful to Cali Paddler Alyson Jackson for sharing her recent experience in Hawaii on her crossing from Big Island to Maui. Enjoy this special journey as she connects with her roots and ancestry through paddling.]
In the darkness of the early morning, with a sliver of moon and an army of stars watching over us, we carefully set our canoes on the water at Kawaihae Harbor on the northwest side of the Big Island of Hawaiʻi. The time had come for thirty five paddlers from around the world, many of us total strangers who share a passion for Hawaiian Outrigger Paddling, to embark on a long awaited voyage from Moku ʻo Keawe (Big Island, Hawaiʻi) to Mokupuni ʻo Maui (Island of Maui).
