The WARRIOR CUP … 2nd Event of the Maui Jim Triple Crown of SUP
This event was from Maliko Gulch to Honolua Bay (21+ miles) on Sunday – July 10th.
This was a great race but had some of the hardest conditions. The race started at 10:45 in the morning inside of Maliko Harbor. Only 32 competitors showed up for this race – but they were some of the best from here, a few from Oahu and some from Australia. Most racers know how grueling this run is, so many opt not to compete in it. Continue reading ‘Triple Crown Event #2 – Recap by Connor Baxter’
