Help get me to Molokai

Help get me to Molokai

Personal message

I am a 25 year old article clerk living in Durban, South Africa. It is my dream to go and compete in the Molokai surfski race. This is a race across the Ka’iwo channel, from Molokai to Oahu on the 26th May.  The best paddlers from around the world come out to compete in this race. I am an accomplished paddler and am aiming to finish in the top 10 of the race overall. 

Hawaii is obviously on the other side of the world to South Africa and so getting there is extremely expensive. There are also other race costs, such as hiring an escort ski boat for safety, that make participation extremely expensive.

Entry- R3 000 ($230)
Flights- R25 000
Accommodation- R4500 ($315)
Escort boat (compulsary)- R12 000 (at least $800)
Total before living expenses= R44 500

More details about the race can be found here:http://www.kanakaikaika.com/maui-jim-molokai-challenge-2019/
