Racing and Fishing

On Sunday 120 Paddleboarders and Stand up Paddlers made the crossing of Kaiwi Channel from Kaluakoi on Molokai to Maunalua Bay Beach Park in Hawaii Kai.  Portlock Point on Kokohead is a good place to watch the paddlers as they enter Maunalua Bay before making the final dash to the finish line about two miles away.  Just before they disappear around China Walls I got this picture of a fisherman amidst the swells crashing against the ledges.  Fortunately, he wasn’t swept away but it isn’t the best spot to catch dinner.

Sports Sunday in East Honolulu

Hawaii Kai will be a focus of some serious sports activity this Sunday.  The 40K bicycle portion of the Tinman Triathlon is coming out to Hawaii Kai in the morning and then back to Kapiolani Park.  Then starting around noon the first of a long string of Paddleboarders will be completing the 32 mile crossing from Kaluako’i Beach on Molokai to Maunalua Bay.  While most will be lying down while they do that some will be standing the whole way!  Makes me tired just thinking about it.

Roz Rows the Pacific

I’ve been following the adventures of Roz Savage as she rows across the Pacific. The Voyage She’s just a few miles from her stop in Oahu. Currently Roz is in the Molokai Channel between the east end of Oahu and west end of Molokai.

The weather is good and the trades are light. It shouldn’t be a bad row thru the channel. We have canoe and paddle board races from Molokai to Oahu and the seas can get rough and then there’s the natural current.

Just before sunset I drove up Kamehame Ridge with the slight hope I might see something. No luck. Unless one of those intermittent white caps included her boat on the crest!

I posted some shots I took at sunset on Flickr
