Hawi Back To Kawaihae

Racers get a chance to experience a tailwind for a spell; the wind turbines are located here for a reason! This section from Hawi is fast, but when the winds pick up it can be quite nerve-racking.

TIP: Aim to be as relaxed as you can in crosswinds, keeping your upper body loose and allowing yourself to move a bit with the side gusts. Flow with it and stay low and aero.
