Na Wahine O Ke Kai co-founder and race director Hannie Anderson and race committee members were presented with a proclamation at the state capitol Wednesday.
During the ceremony, Governor Abercrombie said it was the first time they had both Mayor Caldwell and the Council join the state for a joint proclamation.
They proclaimed September 22 ‘Na Wahine O Ke Kai’ day.
The race committee will depart for Molokai Thursday in preparation for the 35th Na Wahine O Ke Kai long-distance canoe race.
The race will take place Sunday, September 22 at 8:00 a.m. from Hale O Lono on Molokai.
