Ocean Canoe Paddling Championships rock Oahu. An incredible weekend of OC paddling with two back-to-back Championship Regattas hosted by the Hui Wa’a and Oahu Hawaiian Canoe Racing Association. The regattas are purely awesome events with thousands in attendance- not only competing in sport, but perpetuating tradition, culture and sharing much ALOHA. Six person crews hammer all out in anaerobic threshold effort during in sprint distance races ALL DAY long. Planet Sun enthusiastically on site at each event, offering suncare to all in Extreme UV Index conditions… PS pump sunscreen and Personal SunShelter UV Brellas dotted the lagoon.
Our own Anna Mathisen crewed up with 5 other wahine paddlers to win the Women’s Junior One Mile race. Anna’s efforts here one day after claiming Age Group victory at the 1.6 mile JACO Chun’s to Waimea Ocean Swim race, part of the Surf N Sea Swim Series. Anna’s all around ocean impressiveness is rooted in swimming, but she now credits her long distance Ocean Canoe (OC-1) training to recent successes. She’s finished top 3 AG in all her swim races thus far, lets see how she does in the 2.3 mile North Shore Challenge race on 7 AUG. Pics of the Regatta fun to include Anna with crewmates. Also highly accomplished waterman, Jim Fote and his son stopped by our suncare station. Planet Sun Face Formulation sunscreen and Sunphibian Sunglasses are among Jim’s favorite of gear. A pic of relief under a Planet Sun Shelter as well.
We couldnt help but notice Trish Havey decked out in Tin, Titanium and Zinc Oxide at the recent Tin Man Triathlon in Honolulu.
Trish took a pause from racing to cheer her pals at this Iron Man precursor. This lady outdoes herself at everything. ew packaging.
