“It is the 68th anniversary of Outrigger. And to be able to celebrate our deep values and aloha spirit and the hospitality, that connects perfectly with what Hōkūleʻa is all about,” said Bitsy Kelley, vice president of corporate communications at Outrigger Enterprises Group.
Worldwide Voyage crewmembers joined the leadership and staff of the Outrigger Beach Resort Mauritius to celebrate the legacy of Outrigger founders Roy and Estelle Kelley. The Outrigger Beach Resort Mauritius has graciously hosted crewmembers and assisted with provisioning Hōkūleʻa for the upcoming leg of the Worldwide Voyage.
