FAQs for the Ka'iwi Channel swim
NO. We thought we might go that way at first but you do not need any swim organization membership to race in the 1st annual Ka'iwi Channel Swim.
There are various distances given for the Ka'iwi Channel online. Just how far is it?
Usually the channel swimming rules use the shortest distance across the channel. The Ka'iwi Channel Swim will not go the shortest route and we just wanted everyone to have an accurate distance for this race. From the start in front of the Kaluakoi Resort to the finish at Sandy Beach Park on Oahu, it is 28 miles in a straight line measured with Google Earth. Its isn't very likely you will go in a straight line but plan accordingly.
Other team swim races have a given time that each swimmer needs to be in the water. In the Ka'iwi Channel Swim - no rules?
How do we get to the swim start on Molokai?
After you register, we'll send you info on where to stay on Molokai.
"Life shouldn't be a journey to the grave in which you arrive safely in a well preserved body. Rather,you should skid in sideways, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming,WOO-HOO, what a ride!"
