First E Scow to Hawaii
By Van Johnson  W - 20
Growing up on White Bear Lake sailing scows, you assume that the vast sailing world has experienced flat water sailing boats called scows.  Many parts of the world have not been exposed to these wonderful boats.  I recently shipped my older E scow to my brother Andy who lives on Oahu in Hawaii.  Andy is the University of Hawaii sailing coach and has a very active sailing family.  This is the first scow in Hawaii and I'm proud to say we have spread our ILYA sailing culture farther across the globe.  My E has been totally retrofitted with Asym set-up so all the local sailors can see how much fun we have during the summer months. The boat will be sailed out of the Kaneohe Yacht Club on Kaneohe Bay which is on the windward side of Oahu.  The boat since its arrival has drawn a lot of attention.
 I attended the U of Hawaii and was on the sailing team from 1984-1988 along with Rob Evans and Chris Jewett from Minnetonka.  I always wanted to sail an E scow out to Hawaii and my brother and I were able to put it all together and make it happen this fall.  One for the bucket list i guess.  Aloha  and happy sailing
