Wet Hens’ celebrate 55 Year Tradition
The Wet Hens pose with “The Kochi” following a refit of the vessel, circa 1962, at Hickam Harbor. In 1961, the group was founded by a group of Air Force wives that learned to sail from then harbormaster, Lou Foster. Early in their training, he referred to his students as a bunch of "wet hens," and the name stuck. After learning to sail, the women wanted to share their newfound skills with other women. So those first "Wet Hens" started a tradition that has lasted 55 years. (Courtesy Photo)
