2/18/2017 DB's Dailies: RK36&Aukai@Rabbit Island, Kawena@Kaupo Beach Park, Pohaku@Paradise Cove, Buster@White Plains, RIP,Kerby,RW02,Kekoa,Kolohe&RN14@Maili, Luana,Squinty&R3CU@Ka'ena Pt,

Upon arriving at Makai Pier at 0744 I peered out to Rabbit Island and found what would prove to be RK36, snoozin’ in front of Left Greenery. He would remain all day. The calm conditions put a lot of people out around RI. All but one (there always has to be one) were good. The shots speak for themselves. DOCARE was called of course, but the response was about 4 hrs too late.

 As usual I was panning down to Kaupo Beach Park all morning, and at 0940 there was that familiar little shape amongst the water front rocks. The Hotline advised that she had already been reported. HMMA was on it.

 On a routine pan at 1200 I found what would prove to be Aukai (RL12) well out on the left end rock flats at RI.

 Team Billand called at 0818 with the report of Pohaku (RO28) at Paradise Cove.

 Beginning at 0933 Team Billand began reporting multiple arrivals in Maili. It would begin with the arrival of RIP (RR70)(Kerby(RW08), then RW02 and Kekoa (RK72), and finally Kolohe (RW22).

 At 1320 the Billands responded to Buster (RV08) fronting Tower#1 at White Plains.

 Marilyn, Lesley and our visitors Claus&Annette all did the trek to the End of the World. They reported Luana(RN58)&Squinty(R330) at the main beach, and R3CU on the back beach.

 RK36 - Oh look at that big blue sign
