    Team OluKai wins 2015 'Na Holo Kai' Oahu to Kauai Sailing Canoe Race


    The 28th annual 90 mile Na Holo Kai Sailing Canoe race was held this past Saturday, August 15th and was the seventh leg of the 2015 Hawaiian Sailing Canoe Sailing series. Wind and water conditions proved to be the best of the 2015 season. The race began in light off shore breeze but was not enough to sail so the fleet of canoes had to sprint the 5-mile course to Kaena point. Paddle Me Sports headed in a northerly course and into an early lead followed by Maui Jim, Team Olukai, Aloha Brewery, and White Orchid weddings. They spread out over a couple of miles and jockeyed for position and the best sailing course. It took over 3 hours for the lead to change. The Maui Jim canoe captained by Kauai's Donny Jones snuck into a slight lead over Team Olukai, Kala'I Miller's Aloha Brewery, and Paddle Me Sport. After battling with Team Maui Jim for about two hours, Team Olukai, made up of Marvin Otsuji, Jason Dameron, Chris Pico, Maui Kjeldsen, Kalani Vierra, and Tyrus Sale, methodically dropped down to a more southerly course and took the lead.

    Navigating Baja: Bringing Hawaiian Sailing to Mexico – Dispatch #3

    Article provided by National Geographic

    In the dry cactus filled landscape of northern Baja, the hum of a diesel truck echoes as it begins to tow a carefully packed load into the desert sun. This trailer in tow has made it here all the way from the Hawaiian island of Kauai via Santa Cruz, California. Just before we leave every person scrambles throughout the compound residence for their last minute gear—sunglasses, hats, radios—no one is sure what he or she will need for the day's activity. As we pile into the assortment of vehicles, those who don't welcome the possibility of getting stuck quickly make a dash for the truck with four-wheel drive. Finally the caravan is underway as we make the ten-minute trek through two arrojos and power through the last hundred feet of unpacked sand to reach our destination at the edge of the Vermilion Sea, also known as the Sea of Cortez. [...]

    Navigating the Sea of Cortez

    89346_600x450-cb1426517794The Adventurists Max Lowe and his new friends are taking the road less traveled on a ten-day adventure along the Sea of Cortez in Baja California, Mexico.

    Follow the coast north from Cabo San Lucas along winding roads past taco stands, whale bones, and lazy brahman cattle, and you'll find yourself in the little town of Los Barilles, Mexico. Driving down streets rimmed by bright orange, blue, and red adobe-walled houses under the afternoon sun after an unexpected travel delay, I was late to convene with my fellow adventure companions, a group I had largely never met.
