SAN CLEMENTE, CA, July 16, 2013 - This past Sunday in Hawaii was the 27 mile Maui to Molokai SUP race. With most of the world’s best paddlers converging on Hawaii for the month of July the competition has never been more tough.
Connor Baxter finished first on a SIC MAUI Bullet 17, the same board he set the course record on in 2012. Connor has been unbeatable in every downwind race this year when paddling his SIC Bullet 17. The only other Unlimited Elite class victory on Maui was SIC Team rider Livio Menelau on his Bullet 17 at the Paddle Imua race this past May. In the Women’s Elite class Andrea Moller has completely dominated on her Bullet 17 and remains undefeated in 2013. So far this year SIC has completely dominated all unlimited open-ocean and downwind races in both the men’s and women’s classes in Hawaii.
