"Nappy" Crosses the Kaiwi Channel for the 60th Time

October 16, 2017

Racing the Molokai Hoe once is an accomplishment but "Nappy" Napoleon has done  it 60 times. At 76, Nappy is still going strong. He is a steersman which means that he rarely gets out of the canoe during the entire five or more hours of racing. Nappy is an inspiration to us all and his love for paddling and his Ohana is evident in all that he does. Congratulations Nappy for your 60th crossing!
