WATCH: America’s Cup Hero Jimmy Spithill’s Molokai Insights

The countdown is on… The most prestigious race of the year, Molokai 2 Oahu, is only six days away. We’ll be previewing the big race all week, including a look at the contenders for the men’s and women’s crown, before jumping into our usual live coverage and mid-channel updates from the lead boats on race day.

But to warm up for Molokai Week, here’s a throwback to last year’s race.

Bluesmiths produced this great feature on Jimmy Spithill, who competed in the 2014 Molokai solo. Jimmy is best known as captain of the winning America’s Cup team (aka the Greatest Comeback In Sporting History), however he’s also a mad keen stand up paddler as this video shows.

Watch and enjoy, then check back each day this week for fresh Molokai previews, predictions, insights and live coverage.
