No comments on the first non-Tahitian team to win Molokai since 2005? I understand Red Bull had some Tahitians but this is still quite something.

Congratulations to Red Bull paddlers (4 Hawaiians and 5 Tahitians). Beating Shell is a great achievement. But are you really going to consider this as a Hawaiian victory ?

Big Congrats. No not a Hawaiian victory, but it is an example of an organization (Red Bull Va'a) being very smart, innovative and forward thinking. All of the paddlers in the top crews have sacrificed more than we can imagine, respect to all of them no matter where they are from. It will be interesting to see if EDT coaches take a Hawaiian or two into their top teams for Hawaiki Nui Va'a Race. Nov. 1 2 3.

Anyone have a list of the Red Bull crew? Just curious to see who they were.

Hiro,

Since you are in the know, what are the thoughts about Hawaiki Nui Va'a this year? Will EDT win for the 3rd year? From the outsider perspective, it looked like OPT last year was ready to take it, but may have made some strategy and crew selection errors. Shell, OPT and EDT have the talent to win. Does it come down to who is peaking and firing on those days?

Are there other teams we should watch?

Mahalo,

Thanks for the list Kona J.

Those 3 teams are pretty close to each other. Trying to guess who's got the best chance to win is a tricky game.
The team I'd like to see winning is Paddling Connection. I wish them the best.
