Shuttle Service and race day equipment trailering We are offering seats on our shuttle for race day, we can pick you up and take you everywhere you need to go. The shuttle system makes it easy. We pick you up before the race, take you to the start line, pick you up at the finish line, head to the awards and dinner, then back to your original starting point all for $40. Kauai is a circular island so by completing this event including the paddle and the driving you circumnavigate the entire island! This is a great way to relax before and after the race and talk story and share your adventure with friends and other paddlers. We like to capitalize on the downwind run! Typical start times are 12 noon to maximize best conditions so finishes at Polihale are approximately between 2-4 hours after start. We wrap up the finish line and leave the beach at 5 pm and head to awards presentation dinner from 6-8 pm in Kekaha, the nearest town to Polihale State Beach. The awards are held at the Kekaha Neighborhood Center 8130 Elepaio Rd. Kekaha, HI 96752.
