Choppy sea conditions causing surf between 8 to 10 feet kept Ocean Safety lifeguards busy Sunday rescuing canoe paddlers at Makapuu.

The first rescue occurred at 11:15 a.m. after several canoes participating in the race from Kailua and Waikiki ran into trouble.

The first canoe got stuck on the rocks at Alan Davis Beach, between Makapuu Tide Pools and Sandy Beach. Lifeguards on rescue water craft rescued six paddlers and brought them safely to shore at Sandy Beach.

At the same time, a second canoe became swamped with water outside of Sandy Beach. Lifeguards rescued two of the paddlers and took them to Sandy Beach. Two of the paddlers were taken to Maunalua Bay boat ramp, the other two went with the escort boat.

No injuries were reported.
