The Namolokama Canoe Club put on a fantastic event this past Saturday – the Hanalei Bay Swim Challenge!

For those of you that haven’t had the chance to experience the fun and excitement, it’s something you should definitely put on your bucket list. The swim competition this year brought people from all over the State, the mainland and Canada. Experienced swimmers, new swimmers, and non-swimmers came out to enjoy the event and give it a go. You could tell everyone was having a great time!

Coldwell Banker Bali Hai Realty proudly sponsored the community event and also joined in the fun. John Ferry and Lois Lutz swam the 1,000 meter race and John’s granddaughter and Christopher Ordonez’s daughter, Kennedy, did the Keiki Pier swim for the first time. Here’s some fun pictures from the event:

Frank Bird from California won the 3,000M swim in 40:15! Mercedes Stearns, the first Kauai person and first female to finish the 3,000M did it in 41:10! Wow!

Tobin Hickman-Chow from Texas won the 1,000M swim in 13:19. Jack Machorek, from Kalaheo was the first Kauai competitor to come in not far behind at 13:31. Awesome!

Gavin Boggs from Colorado won the Keiki 1-8 Pier Swim in 3:27.  The first Keiki 1-8 from Kauai, Lekili Mendonca, came in at 5:02. Way to go!

Kai Norman of Koloa won the Keiki 9-12 Pier Swim in 2:57. In fact, the top three finishers were all Kauai keiki. Amazing aquatic skills!

Big thanks to the Namolokama Canoe Club for putting on this race/community event. There’s nowhere else that’s more beautiful to swim than Hanalei Bay. The mountains, the palm trees, the waterfalls, rainbows and the bay. It’s pretty epic. Be sure you try it one day.

Bali Hai welcomes the newest addition to our Ohana, Christine “Chris” Meredith.

Chris Meredith

Chris Meredith

Chris brings a combined 27 years’ experience in real estate sales and property management to the Bali Hai Ohana and our clients as the Transactions and Front Office liaison. She enjoys working with people and likes to stay busy, so we’re a perfect match! Be sure to stop by the office and she is happy to welcome you when you do.

Chris visited Kauai for many years and loved it. The beauty, the warm tropical weather, the lifestyle. Finally, she and her SO decided it was time to move to Kauai, and in the spring of 2015, they did it! After having spent her entire life living either on the east coast or the west coast of the mainland, she now calls Kauai’s north shore home.

We are happy to have her join our Bali Hai Ohana!
