Crossing the Kaiwi channel - Molokai Challenge and World Surfski Championships
Race morning came; I woke up with nerves and excitement in my body, the feeling of what I had worked for finally arrived. Both my roommate Steve Dalton and myself woke up around the same time, getting ready for our start time, which was at 10:30 with the Elite men. At the time of applying sunscreen I thought I was going to be wearing the race t-shirt, but 20 minutes before the start I decided that I wanted to cut the sleeves and wear a singlet. Little did I know I forgot about the sunscreen and now as you can see in the picture of Koko Head I got absolutely burnt.
