This weekend on November 25, the paddling team started off their season with a pre-season race in memory of Coach Beanie Heen. Coach Beanie started the Parker Schools Paddling program and was a key figure in the Surf Park Outrigger Paddling program.

The race originally began as a one-man race, but has evolved into having schools participate. This past weekend, Parker was the only school, so they raced each other. Parker piled into their five canoes and paddled out to the race mark at the outside green buoy of the harbor and back. After Parker paddled back onto the beach from their race, the adult multi-vessle race began (meaning one-man, two-man, three-man or six-man). They did a 7 miles race out to the farthest point and back. After both races, there was a potluck, awards for the adult racers, and a raffle with amazing prizes.

Coach Beanie “was a significant figure who coached a lot of well known crews” -Gregory Kim. He has been greatly missed but his legacy will live on.

Parker paddlers hand out medals to the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners of the adult races in each race category.
