Day 9: Sail to Molokai

We’ll get a late start and set sail for a down wind run to the eastern tip of Molokai where we stop for the night in a small deserted harbor. This is the dry side of Molokai and we are a long way from the lights of civilization. The star gazing is literally “out of this world.’

Day 10: Sail to Oahu

This is a great days run that is on a fast tack across Hawaii’s best fishing grounds. You will see the island of Oahu appear from the sea mist, and try to guess which geographical feature becomes Diamond Head.

Stop for a quick swim, a chance to collect your thoughts and things, then pull into Honolulu Harbor to disembark.
