The race has been held for 76 years with 2019 as one of the most popular registration years on record hosting thirty-seven boats! Sailors hop over to Maui on Friday to begin Labor Day weekend festivities like the Oahu vs Maui Softball game. Our friend Sean with Ala Wai yachts competed in the race with a Quicksilver Faar 38 finishing the race in about eight and a half hours. Others enjoy laidback cruising with the fleet which is a great opportunity to take out a new sailboat!
Congratulations to all who competed in the Lahaina Return Race and here’s to doing it again next year!
