 7/21/2013: OHCRA Championships: On a sunny day at Keʻehi, the regular regatta season came to an end with the OHCRA Championships. The wind picked up around mid-day so as usual the upwind quarter mile was a challenge. Anuenue finished the day in third place in the “A” division. The 65+ menʻs crew finished the season with a very close win over OCC just as they did in the first regatta to account for the majority of the clubʻs point total.
