In October 1952, three outrigger canoes, each manned by six paddlers launched from Moloka'i’s west side in the first open ocean race to the beaches of Waikiki 38 miles away. This is the Molokai Hoe – today there are over 1,000 paddlers from around the world competing in the 58th annual event. This had become the world’s most prestigious outrigger canoe race, and it will take place in Molokai on October 10.
We, at discounthawaiicarrental.com have spoken directly to many of the racers as they phone us to book their vehicles for the Molokai event. We have shared their enthusiasm, and we wish great success to all of the racing teams this year. As the dates are approaching, there are now no vehicles available for rent on Molokai for this weekend event, October 9 and 10. We do hope the participants have planned ahead and already reserved their cars with us.
