An excerpt from today's edition of "West Hawaii Today." The article is written by Bobby Command:

The theme of the race this year is "Kupau," which means "completion" in the Hawaiian language....2007 is the "year of completion" when everything has come full circle....

The characteristics of Kupau are "kuaha," which means advice; "ikaika," or strength, "ahonui," or endurance; "hohonu," or knowledge; "ike," or understanding; "naauao," or wisdom; and "mana," or authority.
