No, it was the Pa‘a Halloween race from Hawaii Kai to Kaimana Beach. One Hundred fifty-one entered; most were in costume. Patrick Dolan, without the aid of a cape, took 54:42.62 to finish first overall on his surfski. Manny Kulukulualani, as a blond, was first OC1 in 58:44.90. Arlene Holzman, as a horned demon, burned up the course in 1:07.55 and first woman beast on her OC1. First OC2 was the dynamic duo of Pat Von and Greg Edwards in 1:03.01.
After the race, a big bash was held at the Elks Club and for most, the talk was about looking forward to doing it again next year.
