Google Maps captures the start of the Molokai

I love randomly looking around the world on Google maps and often find some funny, cool, strange, or unexpected things and found something pretty cool today - Im 99% sure Im looking at the start of the Molokai!

Check out the attached pics and look up the start in satellite view. Looks like the first wave just started and others are staged, waiting to go.

Just kind of a random and cool coincidence of timing. Out of the 8760 hours in a year, the satellite happened to snap a pic in a ~1 hour window to catch the start.









Currently - Swordfish S in Southern California's ocean waters
Past Boats: Epic V10 g0, Stellar SR g1, Fenn XT g1

Looks like outriggers to me :-).

So... are you going next year?

Picture is dated 5-25-19 on Google Earth, the race was 5-26.  The pics are probably a training paddle the day before the  ski race. They had divisions for ski, outriggers of all types, sup and prone.  Hank set a record that day, 3:11:17 - 10mph+ average...
