Hawaii August 2018

Anyone sailing between some of the Islands?

Family of 3 with son 16 year old we sail in local waters in the Netherlands. Like to cook. We speak English, Dutch, Mandarin Chinese, German and some French.

Re: Hawaii August 2018

Sorry to say, sailing on a small boat, under 100', between the islands in Hawaii is not a very pleasant experience. In fact, it is some of the most difficult and unpleasant tropical waters sailing I've ever done. Consider taking a plane between islands and looking down at the poor sailors getting their a$$es kicked below you, from the comfort of your airplane's seat.

You need to start studying Pidgin English to be able to communicate on Hawaii.

Gotta agree here. When honeymooning in Hawaii I looked at charter sailboats in the inlands, none were available, so unless you bring your own boat you are out of luck. We did go out on an old America Cup Boat "America II." Once you get out from behind the wind shadow of the islands, the winds pick up to 30+ miles an hour. The waves between islands are built up from 2000 + miles of these same winds. It's a great place to be on a modified Americas cup boat, I would not want to be out there on any boat I could afford myself.

We sailed on America II when it was based in Hawaii. Great experience. Even with the shortened mast when it hit the Windline out of Maui’s protection it blasted through large swells. It is now in NYC

We also rode on Stars and Stripes in San Diego. I was fortunate enough to rode on her in one of the training days with Dennis Connors.
