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.
