Maui/ Kaui Bound

Donna and I are headed off at 6 AM for her 2nd my 8th trip to Hawaii. Our second day there we will be taking the 4 hour tradewind sail out Lahina, Maui on the America II. This 12 meter boat- John Kolius Captain ( when the Americas Cup really was a good race and had rules) raced against Dennis Connor and Star and Stripes for the Louis Vitton Cup in Freemantel, Austrailia and lost to Conner who was on a missionto win the c up back he had lost 4 years earlier. Connor beat Kookaberra in four straight and the races after that were never the same ( IMHO). Last time we went out on America II it hit sppeds of 15 knotts in quite a wild ride.

We plan also to take an evening cruise on Scotch Mist a 50 foot Santana and also go on a couple of snorkeling trips off of Laini (with the spinner dolphins) and the tourist stop Molikini onh 65 foot catamaran sailing vessels with the Pacific Whale Foundation.

We have a couple of snorkel cruises on sailboats planned in Kaui when we get there to the famous Napili Coast and also Niahu Island. May even get a day of sport fishing there in if she will allow me.

We will try and send pictures.

Dave
