We sit down with RJ DeRama to talk about the past, present and future of the Makapo Aquatics Project. As well as what order he watches Star Wars in.
The Makapo Aquatics Project was originally a team of five blind men gathered together by John Chavez. It was John’s dream to field a team of all blind paddlers to compete in the 18-mile Queen Lili'uokalani Outrigger Canoe race in Kona, HI. Being the largest race in the world, it would be a showcase of what blind people could accomplish despite their disability.
