Birthing of Namahoe – launch tomorrow @ Kalapaki Bay, Lihue!
Currently on Kaua’i? Make plans to witness this historic cultural event tomorrow, September 11th, in Lihue: Birthing of Namahoe (click link to read article).
“After more than 20 years of construction, Namahoe, Kauai’s sailing canoe, will be born on Sept. 11, with a schedule of day-long activities and entertainment from 9:30 a.m. until 3 p.m. at the walkway fronting the Kauai Marriott Resort and Beach Club. Parking will be available at the Nawiliwili Beach Park. Pending ocean conditions, a formal ceremony marking the birth of Kauai’s own voyaging canoe, Namahoe, is scheduled.” (around 11 am)
My friends and I plan to paddle out on surfboards for the launch, if you’re “on island” this event is not to be missed, see you there!
