3 out of 7.... not too bad.. locals say this is the windest week in 2 months.. so i guess we should be lucky...
Martine and I sailed at Kihei today. Martine was blasting around on a 3.7 and I was sailing lit up a 4.7 , both North Ice sails.
Today the north shore had big waves.. but was covered in clouds and mist.. making the wind flaky and light. we stopped at ho'okipa on the way home and watched a few guys slogging around catching some mast high waves every once and a while.
Yes, more pics please.
PS. Janis wants you to go up to the Tedeschi Winery and pick her up a bottle of Maui Splash! Snap some shots while you're up there. Its one of her favorite places in the whole world
A few more shots from Keith. Looks like they went up the Iao Valley
The Battle of Kepaniwai ("Battle of the Dammed Waters of ʻĪao" or Kaʻuwaʻupali, "Battle of the Clawed Cliffs") was fought in 1790 between Hawaiʻi Island and Maui. The forces of Hawaiʻi were led by Kamehameha I, while the forces of Maui were led by Kalanikūpule. It is known as one of the most bitter battles fought in Hawaiian history.
If you've never been, its extraordinarily beautiful up there, and the trades funnel up and accerlate up thru the valley, constantly reminding you of the sailing you're missing down on the coast...hehehe
