Diana Temple Paddled for Hanalei, then Namalakama through the 80’s and mid 90’s.
First crew.
Liliuokalani is my favorite race.
Did that race in 2015 with Namalakama with three of my friends but dropped to 50s as there was one gal 51. But we got 3rd.
Next year with Keauhou got silver..darn 30 seconds from first . Last year with Kaiopua..gold. always paddle that race iron.
Pailolo last year with Kaiopua. gold.
So we had an awesome 60s crew.
I can still do ocean changes. I am 63 but often dropped down to steer 50s or 55 mixed.
My seats are any…though seat four is my least fav. But it doesn’t matter. I am lightweight.
Anyway, I do have experience as you can see.
Did Molokai several times, once on the one man in 97. Won the 40s division.
I was on the mainland for several years. Just paddled briefly with Marina Del Rey.
Mostly one man.
Moved back here in 2013.

Stephanie (O’Kalani Alameda, CA) I’ve been paddling for O’Kalani for about a year and a half and raced full-time last year. I’m a strong seat 2 and 3, but comfortable in most other seats as well, except steering. I have continued to build my skill by paddling OC1. I did the Monterey bay crossing, around Alcatraz island and other change races before. I have already bought my flights so I’m fully committed to this race, just home to find a crew. 33 years old. slenorovitz AT gmail.com or 808-223-1520
