Molokai–Master Blaster Canoe Race

This annual event was held on a recent Saturday in October by the Molokai Canoe Club.  These are 6 person canoes and the participants must be at least 40 years old for men and 35 years old for women.

The course covers about 6 miles along the southern shoreline to the east of the Kaunakakai pier.  They begin at about 8:00am and finish at the base of the pier.  Along the way they are required to make 4 stops.

At each stop they pull their canoe onto the shore, all members of the team get out of the canoe and each member must drink a beer.  Once all beers have been consumed the team re-enters the canoe and heads off to the next stop.  Oh, and the teams are encouraged to have a costume.

Once they reach the pier the race may be over but the party is just getting started.  What’s not to like about an event like this?
