Hawaii Laser Association District 26 Championships
 By Guy Fleming
 
 
This event has the distinction of being a local regatta which is also a qualifier for a national event − The US Sailing Singlehanded National Championships for the ODay Trophy. Currently the top full rig sailor, and for the last two years, the top female radial sailor, qualify to represent Hawaii at this fantastic event. The event has been going on for a long time but we have race results back to 1991. John Myrdal was the most dominant sailor at the time of the trophies purchase so the boat colors were the colors of his boat at the time…red and white. In 1994 John went on to win the ODay Championship. Since then we have had many strong Hawaii performances in the event. The Laser District Trophy is awarded to the top sailor in A fleet and the top sailor in B fleet. These are skill-based fleets. The winners are as follows:
