Day 2: OC Camp - OC6
Our first taste of paddling in Kauai came in the form of an OC6 lesson. Most of us will participate in a clinic/camp for the next few days, ahead of our race on Saturday (Hawaii time). Our camp is led by Keone Miyake (https://kauaioutrigger.com/instructors/), whose wife organises the Na Pali Challenge. Keone's also done a multitude of other races around Hawaii and the world.
For day 1, we gained an understanding of Hawaiian paddling, and worked on our technique at a level 1 pace. We also practiced some race starts. Our ladies crew got to paddle in an unlimited V6! So jealous.
The day finished with watching the sunset, over Family Day on Hanalei Bay... check this out!
