Aloha, this is Mark Keala Kimura from the deck of Hōkūleʻa on Leg 20 of the Worldwide Voyage. We just left Cape May, New Jersey, and it was a beautiful place with 150+ year old homes and the people had so much aloha. We had clam chowder last night, and the night before was paella. Out here on the ocean, the water is glassy with no wind but lots of fog. We can barely see our escort vessel, and for safety we are using fog horns, AIS, and radar reflectors. The fog is so thick that we heard a boat go by, and we did not even see it. Mahalo for the support and aloha!
More than Adventure
Beyond a daring expedition, the Worldwide Voyage is quite possibly the most important mission that Hawaiʻi has ever attempted. As people of Oceania, we are leading a campaign that gives voice to our ocean and planet by highlighting innovative solutions practiced by cultures around the planet.
We could not have begun this great journey without your support, nor can we continue to its completion.
