Sonni wins the "Na Pali Race" on Kauai

Here are the early results from the 2014 Na Pali Paddleboard Race, which is held on perhaps the most beautiful race course in the world: Kauai’s Na Pali Coast.


After his podium finish in the stock class at Molokai last weekend, Andrew Logreco backed up with the overall line honours today. Coming home second was Kiwi Armie Armstrong, who has been supremely impressive in Hawaii the past few weeks. Thomas Maximus came home third while fourth was Sonni Hönscheid; the German showing her Molokai win was no fluke by defeating not only all the women but almost all of the men as well.


Apparently the first 4 or 5 miles of the race offered up a great downwinder, as competitors paddled along the world famous cliffs and mountains of Kauai’s north west coast. However it sounds like the second half of the race turned into a grinding headwinder…
