Bart on his SUP around Maui, May 29 2009

11am, Bart just called that he made it all the way to Hana. Yesterday he had a very tough 12.5 h paddle to get all the way from the beach close to Olowalu across the Kihei Bay to Kaupo. Friends of mine told me yesterday that close to the Kaupo shores a whale carcass was driften in the water, surrounded by hundreds of sharks and MahiMahi (dolphin fish or Dorado). Several fishing boats were out there to make the catch of the day. So I was really worried. Luckily I had the change to tell him yesterday when he called. But he hasn't seen it while he paddled by. He is doing good and on his way towards Ke'Anae now. When the wind won't turn against him, he can make it into Kanaha with lots of strong paddling by tomorrow. Cross your fingers, wish him luck, Dagmar
