This morning, the annual 9.6-mile Maui Channel Swim will start as it always has since 1972 when Ian Emberson started the popular event.
Many follow-up their channel relay with a solo event in the Maui 'Aumākua 2.4 Mile Swim as a new alternative to the annual Labor Day Waikiki Roughwater Swim held on Oahu.
Maui no ka 'oi is translated as 'Maui is the best' in the Hawaiian language.

SMILES 2 U,
Todd Robinson was 1st solo finisher of today's Maui Channel race and beat 46 of the 50 relay teams. Time was 3:54. Rough conditions 10-20 knot winds at times, 7-10' swells.
Thank you very much for the solo swimmer information. We noted Todd's remarkable swim in the story above.
