The 2016 edition of the Molokai surfski race is now in the books. Conditions today did not favor the racers with high temperatures and little help from the wind and waves.
Hank McGregor pulled off another victory at Molokai, finishing ahead of Sean Rice in second, Jasper Mocke in third, Clint Robinson in fourth and Joey Hall in fifth.
The race was led by Cory Hill, with Hank McGregor following and Sean Rice coming in from a northerly approach. In a heartbreaking turn of events, with Hill leading into China Wall, he ground into a reef, driving his rudder into the ski, effectively taking him out of contention.
Herman Chalupsky finished tenth with Greg Barton in at a respectable 18th. Oscar Chalupsky finished 26th, also apparently running into troubles at China Wall.
Men's results are:
1) Hank McGregor
2) Sean Rice
3) Jasper Mocke
4) Clint Robinson
5) Joey Hall
The first place female: Liz Pluimers.
