Molokai 2008 – Aussie Contingent

Tuesday, 13 May 2008 16:53 |

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.

[Editor: Steve Woods has been in Hawaii for a couple of weeks now and sent this update through to us - apologies for taking so long to post it!  Blame the delay on the long flights and the extreme effect of the 12 hour jetlag!]

Six Weeks to Go – Dawid Mocke’s Molokai Blog

Monday, 07 April 2008 16:33 |

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.

Tips about this venerated race are obtained mostly by word of mouth. Here are some pointers and confessions from one Molokai rookie that can help shed a little light on a complicated but exciting event for those new to the Big Dance.
