Hi again,

 

Found these screen shots from 5/11. Don't recall the name though. Maybe somebody can identify the area?

Hi Fred,

 

Great list. Wish I had the foresight. Here's a link from May 7th at MS Flight Forum:

http://msflightforum...g/about302.html

Looks like "WAILEA BEACH" is right.

 

Jim F.

Hi Jim.

I just found out that May 7th was KAAAWA VALLEY. (WAILEA BEACH was a re-run of April 6th.)

and May 11th (your pics) are MAUNALOA HARBOR (south coast Molokai)

So that fills in the 2 gaps I had for May. Thanks for your help.

 

Fred.

Hi Folks

 

Fred -

Jim's screenies triggered a flashback.

 

May 11th MAUNALOA HARBOR isn't the name of the aerocache,

 

ISTR it was something along the lines of -

Interisland Race, Ocean Challenge, Boat Race, whatever. :smile:

 

The clue was something like -

The annual Molokai to Oahu Outrigger Competition starts here.

 

EDIT -

Just realised Jim's followup actually mentions the race. :wink:

Great finding! Now... where's that "got" mark :-)

In the cloud, probably.

 

Ok, then I'll try to find it in my Radar displays here at the Metoffice :-)
