Hawaii 2017-2018

Hawaii 2017-2018

Sharry and I are preparing to take Starr from Hawaii to Kodiak, AK (2200nm) this May. We’ll then continue to Prince William Sound.

Although we’ve been silent on this blog for too long, we’ve been busy cruising Hawaii!

Here’s a bit from the last year…

Nautical Miles run: 1900nm

Nights at anchor: 89

The 7 principle Islands span 325nm

Our trips included the following:

Some of our tracks in and out of Waikiki
Kaneohe, a five hour run from Waikiki. Note the depths in feet.
Starr anchored at Kaneohe
We made Spring and Fall trips from Oahu to Kauai, where we spent two weeks on each visit anchored in Hanalei Bay.

Sunset in Hanalei Bay
Double rainbow in Hanalei Bay
We also cruised the north end of the island twice to see the Pali Cliffs.Molokai: two runs down both the North and South sides of the island.

We anchored at Kalaupapa, home of a still-active leper colony.
We also anchored in Lono Harbor and Kaunakakai.
Logo HarborWe made two runs around Lanai with stops at 3 anchorages.
The three anchorages we stayed at were Needles, Manele Bay, Kaena Point.
Needles, just south of Keanapapa Point on the northwest corner of Lanai
Maui: one run to Lahina on the way to the big Island of Hawaii.
On Maui we anchored at Honolua, Mala, Lahina and Olowalu.
Alenuihaha Channel (not to be taken lightly!)
Hawaii: Hawaii down to Kealakekua Bay, also known as Captain Cook Bay since this is where he was killed.

A tight anchorage in Kealakekua Bay! The stern was attached to a dive buoy 10 feet under the surface, leaving 2 feet under Starr’s bow.
Another angle of the picture above. Yes, we spent the night here and slept soundly!

Anchored at Kailua, Kealakekua, Kalukalu.

A useful Guide for those interested is Noodles Notes. Our sailor friend, Bill Leary,(Noodles) has made his favorite cruising anchorages in Hawaii available in NOODLES NOTES, to anyone who is interested is cruising this area.
Thanks Bill!

    I simply can’t wait for your trip to the most amazing place on the face of planet earth, Prince William sound. Will be very interested to hear your views once visited. Take care and I hope you get some great weather on your run north – we will be watching.

    Blog by Email Activity on: LIVEHi Don and Sharry,
    Looks like you guys have had great fun! So happy for you. Thanks for sharing and letting us live vicariously through you. I can’t wait for boating season in the PNW! Too bad we couldn’t have connected in the San Juans last year and share big stories. We’ve talked about this in the past… not sure if you’re looking for crew for the crossing but I (and possibly my wife) would joyously consider the opportunity. Enjoy your time and hoping we can someday connect. Thanks.

    Didn”t realize you were in Hawaii when Emiko and I were there last
    September for our daughter”s wedding ceremony – she was actually married in
    March, but the ceremony had to wait due to the pressures of work. Anyway,
    we will be there again this year in September. It is sad that we haven”t
    been able to get together. How about coming back to Japan for a bit?

    Enjoy each and every moment,

    Love seeing Starr and hearing about your Hawaiian adventures. I am still “boatstruck” by your wonderful vessel! Best of luck up north!

    Wow!  You two have really done some extensive exploring in the Hawaiian Islands.  That’s a great photo of Starr anchored in Hakipuu.  I’m glad the cruising guide was useful to you, and thanks for the kind words.
