It was a busy sail getting Hōkūleʻa back to New Jersey from Maine for the crew of Part 2 of Leg 22, having to time safe weather windows for transiting the Northeastern seaboard. We made stops in Boothbay, Maine; Salem and Cape Cod, Massachusetts; Newport, Rhode Island; Oyster Bay, New York; with final arrival at Newport Marina, Jersey City, New Jersey.

We could not have done it without the amazing help from Polynesian Voyaging Society staff Heidi Guth, Ramona Ontiveros, and Mikiala Akiona. Once again, it was an honor and a privilege to serve on the Mālama Honua Worldwide Voyage with each of you.
