Hōkūleʻa crewmember and apprentice navigator Kaleo Wong is here with our Sunday morning navigation report as the crew makes their way west toward Pitcairn Island. He reports positioning to be about 150 miles west of Rapa Nui. Last night they used the moon and familiar stars Hikiananlia and Hōkūleʻa for guidance. Bonus: there’s a photo gallery of great pics below within this update.
For more, view the clip above, or, for native speakers, the clip below. And remember you can tracks Hōkūleʻa’s progress in real time from the Mālama Honua Tracking Map.
