Well another May rolls around. It seems this same time last year was only three weeks ago and a bunch of us were telling ourselves that the winds were going to be up for the race this year.
Well that was last year and the winds weren't up, in fact even the swell was going the wrong way.

Six weeks to go. Six weeks until I'm standing on the beach at Kalua Koi squinting in the early morning light to see the volcanic mass which is Oahu 55kms away. Between me and there will lie a stretch of ocean which has become iconic. Be it on outriggers, paddleboards or surfskis, many a waterman has covered this piece of the Pacific. And in 42 days time it'll be that time again.
