Three Outrigger Santa Cruz crews walked away from the Memorial Day Ho’e Wa’a canoe race in Monterey with wins on Saturday, according to results posted on the Northern California Outrigger Canoe Association website.

The OSC men’s team won its open division, crossing the finish line of the 9-mile race in 1 hour, 19 minutes, 50 seconds — almost a full minute ahead of runner-up Tamalpais Outrigger Canoe Club Blue [1:20:52]. Hui Wa’a Canoe and Kayak was third [1:22:43] in what was the mostly highly contested race of the event with 11 entrants.

The OSC masters women’s team also pulled off a win in its division, crossing the finish line in 1:22.24. Northern California Outrigger Canoe was second [1:22.58] and another OSC team was third [1:26.09].

And finally, the OSC’s senior masters women’s team also pulled off a win in its division, beating the only other entrant by about 11 and a half minutes. OSC finished in 1:26.34 and Ohana Wa’a finished in 1:38 even.
