Tentative Start Times:

All start times are subject to change based on wind. We like to capitalize on downwind run, but if forecast is for light winds we will start earlier. We should have a good idea of wind conditions 3-5 days out. Stay tuned to @napalirace on Facebook, Instagram and website for updates. The reason for late departures is to take full advantage of downwind run. Also, a trade wind later in the day will consistently fill in along the coastline’s many valleys.

For a light variable wind forecast start times will be up to 3 hours earlier departure.

For light trade winds forecast races will start up to 2 hours earlier.

Trade winds 10-15 mph start will be up to 1 hour earlier.

Typical trade wind 15-20 mph or more times are as follows:

Alternate event date: TBA

The only reason for event cancellation would be a circumstance such as a natural disaster or other unpredicted event that would not allow us to run. Also if ocean conditions are determined to be unsafe for the event a new date will be announced. Typically during this time of year conditions are ideal for the Na Pali.
