Race Day Update and Results Molokai Hoe

I know there is live broadcast, but it might go in and out depending on tech. It might be good to also post what we learn here.

I heard wind was starting to pick up yesterday afternoon. We will see.

Good luck and safety to all.

Does anyone know the final number of teams?

#15 Sun, 10/11/2009 - 9:14am

Just called someone on the lead official boat on cell and they said Shell Va'a is so far ahead they can't tell who is second. Said they are just incredible. This was at 9:10am. They are flying - gotta love it.

#16 Sun, 10/11/2009 - 9:15am

the guy i just talked to on primos boat said there behind shell......... so there second

#17 Sun, 10/11/2009 - 9:17am

Update - Team Primo, Lanikai, Outrigger in a group about a mile and a quarter behind the lead offical boat according to my inside sources from people on race offical boats.

#18 Sun, 10/11/2009 - 9:23am

kailua you know coming from primo escort boat might not be totally accurate........ha

#19 Sun, 10/11/2009 - 9:28am

I wish they were closer!

#20 Sun, 10/11/2009 - 9:37am

So can I get a recap. Three Tahitians then group of primo Occ lanikai?

#21 Sun, 10/11/2009 - 10:04am

nope primo is behind number one shelll
but that was a lit bit ago

#22 Sun, 10/11/2009 - 10:17am

Any Hawaii teams with primo or are they by themselves

#23 Sun, 10/11/2009 - 10:21am

Early morning here in oz, just confirming that 3 tahitian teams in front, are they in front by a long way, and cannot get onto live feed, I gather its not happenning is that right ?? Thanks in advance if you can answer that.... Brad.

#24 Sun, 10/11/2009 - 10:40am

As far as I know - Shell, then a gap, then Primo, Occ, Lcc (in no particular order). As of 10:40am still pretty much the same as before but unfortunately the gap between the Tahitians has opened up more. On GPS the lead canoe is about 9 miles out from Diamond Head bouy. I don't know anything about '3' Tahitian crews but doesn't mean it isn't possible - the people I get info from can only see what they can. They can't see everybody.

#25 Sun, 10/11/2009 - 10:52am

Thanks Appreciate it !!

#26 Sun, 10/11/2009 - 10:54am

Woohoo!!! Video coming in loud 'n clear to Oz! Only wish I knew who was who? Hard to tell just by looking at the video. Anyway, it's so cool to be able to watch it live. Cheers.

#27 Sun, 10/11/2009 - 11:35am

#52 Sun, 10/11/2009 - 2:57pm

I was told some shell paddlers who were not with the "A Team" were paddling in Primo canoe. Can someone confirm if it's true or just BS ?

#53 Sun, 10/11/2009 - 3:29pm

As far as I know its bs. I don't remember all the names, but I wouldve remembered if any where Tahitian. All Oahu, Maui, and a guy from Cali.

#54 Sun, 10/11/2009 - 3:32pm

BS Hiro, its dave here

#55 Sun, 10/11/2009 - 3:33pm

kai, danny, tyson, peter, kekoa, mike judd, philly, mael, mp i believe thats the crew

#56 Sun, 10/11/2009 - 3:34pm

OK Thanks.
Did shell broke last year's finish time ?

#57 Sun, 10/11/2009 - 3:35pm

No. Slower this year (conditions)

#58 Sun, 10/11/2009 - 3:41pm


No new record. Newspaper says missed it by 1 1/2 minutes. 90 seconds. However worst conditions for record in last 4 years, so I think if same conditions as last year then they would have shaved another 4 minutes off of it. Meaning Shell was even stronger this year than last year.

Much respect to all of the Tahitian paddlers and Tahiti.

#59 Sun, 10/11/2009 - 3:41pm

Last question : was Paddling Connection far behind ?

#60 Sun, 10/11/2009 - 3:43pm

17.5min behind Shell Vaa

#61 Sun, 10/11/2009 - 3:46pm

Thanks for the info. Congratulations to all who crossed the channel today... It's so frustrating to be so far !

#62 Sun, 10/11/2009 - 3:49pm

Does anyone know how the Canadian crews did? I'm from good old Toronto, Ontario and we have two crews of local paddlers crossing the channel. Just wondering how they did! OPA and Paddle Sport Performance. Thanks!

#63 Sun, 10/11/2009 - 3:54pm

any more results?

#64 Sun, 10/11/2009 - 5:29pm

Congrats to Shell Va'a, Primo, and ALL the paddlers and support. Primo did Hawaii proud...
More pictures, video, and the article will be out by tonight on MaoliWaa.com
Will update.

#65 Sun, 10/11/2009 - 4:28pm

Anyone with final results ?

#66 Sun, 10/11/2009 - 7:27pm

Any more results? The womens had no live broadcast but results posted within hours of finishes. Mens race a live broadcast but no results. Does the no same jerseys affect the finish times, feels like a recap of Liliu race?

#67 Sun, 10/11/2009 - 7:41pm

Apparently there were some time penalties, so they are still adjusting.

So im guessin thats why it taking sooooooo long

#68 Sun, 10/11/2009 - 7:53pm

An interesting point looking at that photo of Shell is the size of the paddlers I bet that they were the lightest paddlers filling seats 2 and 3 in the top half of the race.
Obviously very fit with immaculate technique and timing.
They dont just pick the big guys first because they are big like a lot of other teams, and it seems to pay off.

#69 Sun, 10/11/2009 - 8:31pm

Wondering how Leonard's Team Pao Duce did? Any Super Bock importers or distributors in Hawaii?
