Help TeamKahuna get back sailing



TeamKahuna dismasted with 8 miles remaining in the Victoria to Maui International Race. We managed to finish the race under jury rig and were 3rd in class after 13 days, 12hours and 35 minutes at sea. Now comes the truly challenging part of the journey. Our delivery crew arrived expecting to begin their own adventure back across the Pacific but Kahuna will have to make that trip on a ship . Currently she is in Honolulu waiting for keel and rudder removal, then on to a ship for San Deigo and then trucking to Seattle....delivery cost $28k. Our insurance does not cover any of the loss and Kahuna is currently island bound while we work out logistics for trucking, shipping, repairs and mast replacement. Replacement mast about $53k and Sails about $26k. Jenny and I have a new baby to deal with and the crew are just a bunch of regular working stiffs.... no sugar daddys here. So we are reaching out to friends of TeamKahuna to help us get her back to Tacoma and sailing again. No contribution is too small and all proceeds go to the delivery and repair of Kahuna.
