During the first 30 years of Molokai - the unofficial World Championship of open ocean racing - the 55-kilometer channel crossing was defined by three men: Aussie Ironman turned Olympian Grant Kenny, who put the race on the map when he won the first of his five titles in 1979; nine-time winner and course record holder Dean Gardiner, and 11-time champ Oscar Chalupsky. Though the ultra-fit, two-time Coolangata Gold Ironman champ Guy Leach was first across a glassy channel in 1991, over the next decade-and-a-half the only winners were named Chalupsky or Gardiner. In 1995, Oscar crossed the line with his brother Herman, and Herman smashed the field for his first outright win in 2004.

[Editor: Itsuko Oda, the first Japanese woman to race Molokai sent us this personal race report following her marathon seven hour effort. Congratulations Itsuko!]

First of all, I would like to thank all the people who helped me make my long held dream of Molokai solo crossing come true.  I feel I would never have succeeded without their help and support.

Molokai - the Holy Grail of surfski paddling! When the race organizers invited me to go to Hawaii to experience the race I leaped at the opportunity.  I had a great time and a terrible race... , learnt a lot about paddling in Hawaii - and about myself.
