Tiki's Grill & Bar is the official greeting committee for Double Trouble a J/125 that is racing to Hawaii. Our friends on Double Trouble will be starting on Friday July 8th in Division 4.
We are currently racing too, trying to complete our new drink "DOUBLE TROUBLE", this needs to happen before the boat arrives as we plan to meet them dock side no matter what time of day or night when they arrive. We have the main ingredient figured out "Malibu Black" - (new 70 proof spiced rum from Mailbu), the other elements have been a little elusive.
