It was a blustery cloudy day at Kailua Beach for the annual visit for the King Kamehameha regatta. Highlights for Ānuenue included a second place for the 60s women and a second for the 70s men in their debut race after sitting out the previous week with not enough paddlers. The novice “A”s paddled well but couldnʻt break into the top three in a tough competitive division.

"A"s make the turn and head for the finish.
