HONOLULU - May 18, 2008 - Tahiti's Lewis Laughlin trumped a record field of 133 paddlers in the 32-mile Epic Kayaks Molokai World Championships today, repeating his victory of last year but under vastly different conditions to prove he's a paddling force to be reckoned with. Feeling right at home in light to moderate trade-winds and a small wind swell of two feet, Laughlin, 37, finished 19 minutes outside of the race record in a time of 3 hours, 40 minutes and 26 seconds. The 6'2" Tahitian looked comfortable and relaxed at the finish despite having survived a strong charge home that saw the top four finishers all cross the line within a period of two minutes. The record time of 3:21:26 was set by Australian Dean Gardner in 1997.


While not epic conditions by Molokai Channel standards, today's crossing was a luxury compared to last year's blazing heat and head-winds over a longer course to Waikiki. And even though light, the trade-winds were a welcome relief today after a full week of hot, Kona wind conditions. Today's race started out at Kaluakoi, Molokai, and ended at Hawaii Kai, Oahu. Last year's course was five miles longer. Of the 133 who started today, 119 finished.


Second place today was also a repeat of last year, going to South African Hank McGregor (3:41:05). Third place was Australian Tim Jacobs (3:41:44). The first Hawaii paddler across the finish line was Stu Gaessner, 48, (4:07:30), and the first female finisher was Maui's Lauren Bartlett (4:21:28).

While Laughlin was a hot bet last year over a longer distance and flatter, hotter conditions, he was not the odds-on favorite today. Even though the forecast was for small swell today, those in the know still favored the likes of the South African contingent: 11-time champion Oscar Chalupsky, Herman Chalupsky, McGregor, and Dawid Mocke, as well as Australia's Gardner - all of whom excel in the surf. Gardner finished fourth today, Mocke fifth, Herman Chalupsky sixth, and Oscar Chalupsky seventh.

"I'm used to long distance and flat water paddling," said Laughlin, "so today I just went with the flow.

"I was on the same course as Dean and Tim. Hank was a bit more north, but my escort boat kept telling me I was on the right course. They were telling me that the others were moving forward and getting faster. They were catching up but I was focusing on finishing.

"There were some good bumps. It was very fast competition. The swell was just what you need to get the ski moving. The wind dropped a little at the end and it was a bit hot, but it suited me well, like we have at home."

Hank McGregor's runner-up finish was a mixture of frustration and satisfaction. Having led up until the final three miles of the race, he conceded that his northerly line may have been a little too far north.

"It's not too great to come second twice, but it's still an honor to be out there," said 30-year-old McGregor.

"It was that close. The conditions were not big so there's not that much of an opportunity to open up a gap. It's just a matter of being the strongest to the finish.

"I was pretty far north - maybe a bit too far. But it's such a big ocean that you've got to commit to a line and put your head down. This is just my second crossing and I've placed second twice. Experience pays off, so maybe next time. For sure, I'll be back next year to win this thing!"

Hawaii's Stu Gaessner was elated with his finish: 17th overall and the first Hawaii paddler over the line.

"The conditions were better than we thought," said Gaessner. "The first part was a little flat... and the last hour got kinda tough. It definitely wasn't consistent enough for a Hawaii paddler.

"I wanted to race conservatively and not get consumed by the heat. And I wanted to beat Mark (Sandvold) this year!"

Lauren Bartlett was ecstatic with her win, given that she has only spent one week familiarizing herself with her new surf ski. Just three weeks ago Bartlett posted a record win crossing the Molokai Channel solo in a one-man canoe (OC-1). Two weeks ago she won the pairs OC-1 relay across the channel, so it was sweet to master a second craft in such close succession.

"I'm ecstatic," said a beaming Bartlett. "Fifty times I must have decided to race, to not race, to race...

"It wasn't very big but the wind came up and there were little bumps the whole way. Two weeks ago was definitely more fun. This was like banging your head against a wall.

"I only got the (ski) last Sunday. I paddled it Sunday, Monday, Tuesday. By Wednesday I felt junk and flat, so I just rested. I huli-ed (capsized) once today. I haven't had a lot of time to tweak the boat to how I like it.

"But the secret in these kinds of races is pacing yourself."

In previous years, the Epic Kayaks Molokai World Championships has also included a division for OC-1 paddlers. This year the race was split at relatively late notice with the OC-1 organizers staging their race three weeks ago. International OC-1 paddlers who were unable to make flight changes in time were accommodated today in today's race. The first OC-1 finisher was Danny Ching, from California, who crossed in a time of 4:17:16.
