Hawaiian Chieftain

A kiteboarder has collided with the Hawaiian Chieftain, a historic boat late, last Sunday on the Columbia River.

The crew of the Hawaiian Chieftain and the kiteboarder himself weren't hurt, although a crash has happened.

The Grays Harbor Historical Seaport Authority, which operates the Hawaiian Chieftain, said the incident happened at about 4:30 p.m. when dozens of people were onboard.

The kiteboarder sailed very close to the Chieftain and the kite lines entangled in the boat's mast.

After the incident, the captain took the kiteboarder to the Hood River Marina and everybody relaxed. The Hood River is a very popular spot for kiteboarders.
