Winds Make For Delay In All Oars Boat Race

Row boating from Monterey to Hawaii? I’ll take the train.

Word Monday from race director Chris Martin who said the decision was made after assessing conditions for the next few days. It was late last week that strong winds led to the postponement of the race, a rowing competition from Monterey to Hawaii that was originally set to begin Saturday.

“Fingers crossed that the weather forecast continues to hold,” said Martin, noting that 4 p.m. is when racers are expected to gather at the marina and 6 p.m. is when they’ll take off. “Essentially we’re looking for an opportunity for crews to depart and have stable conditions and the biggest lack of winds as possible for at least three days.”
