This is one of those bucket list downwinder races, by all accounts, one of the most fun, challenging and consistent downwind runs on Earth. Don’t drool on your phone or keyboard.

The M2M race always has some crazy action and this year’s race was no exception. Getting out to the start line required attention and timing but once we got out there it was pure fun! The ARES PRO and Gemini had another great showing on this crossing and we got to welcome the Vega on her maiden M2M voyage. What an epic day for Kaiwa’a! 🏆
