Paddle Molokai Holokai
Youth in Motion News Release
Youth in Motion and Stand Up Paddle Association are proud to continue with the Molokai Holokai Paddle Festival. The festival conception is merging two great events with the Maui to Molokai Challenge on Saturday, July 7, departing from DT Flemming and the Molokai Holokai Paddle Race on Sunday, July 8, combining the two to the Molokai Holokai Paddle Festival.
The first finishers on Saturday are expected to arrive at Kaunakakai wharf between 12.30 and 1 p.m. Keep an eye on 16-year-old Alex Mawae from Molokai, 15-year-old Slater Fleck from Maui, 8-year-old Bobo Gallagher from Maui along with other youth from California who will be making their way across the Pailolo Channel.
On Sunday, the Molokai Holokai will start from Kamalo Harbor to the Molokai Community Health Center at about 12.15 p.m. The public is welcome to come down and enjoy the festivities at Health Center, listen to music and enjoy a very relaxing Sunday afternoon. The highlight of the day will be the Molokai kids, who will paddle from the Mowatt’s homestead to the Health Center at 3 p.m. The keiki event is open to all Molokai Youth. There are no entry fees for any of the Molokai youth so grab that paddle, a board, kayak or canoe and come join us this weekend.
There will be Molokai signups at Paddlers Inn on July 4 from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. for the Maui to Molokai crossing and again at Paddlers Inn on Saturday, July 7 for the Sunday race. For more information, please go to MolokaiHolokai.com or call Clare Mawae at 808-336-0946.
