Saturday, June 2nd, the Marina del Rey Outrigger Canoe Club hosted one of their biggest events of the year, the 2007 Kahanamoku Klassic.

Droves of paddlers filled the Santa Monica Bay as they powered their way on a path from Mothers Beach off of Palawan Way in Marina del Rey to the Santa Monica bell buoy and back aboard the long slender Polynesian kayaks whose design dates back to the beginning of recorded history.
