Aloha Hawaiʻi, here we are on Hōkūleʻa. We left Pitcairn two days ago. We are headed to Nuku Hiva in the Marquesas Islands. We are currently about two hundred miles out of Pitcairn, and the winds are blowing at a constant speed. That being said, we project that we will arrive at Nuku Hiva in about eight days. We are sailing in the houses Nā Leo, Hoʻolua and Haka, Hoʻolua. Mahalo for following us on this worldwide voyage and please continue to do so at www.hokulea.com. Aloha! ʻŌlelo Hawaiʻi:
