On February 9th, students from Kamaile Academy sailed on Hikianalia. With Nainoa and PVS volunteers, we sailed from Sand Island to Diamond Head. We learned how steer, spot, and use the sails to maneuver the canoe. We also learned about axis points on the canoe and how your position can change its direction. This sail is one of the many ways we are preparing for the World Wide Voyage. Nainoa spoke about the importance of our education and changing the stereotypes that have been put on schools in Waianae, like ours. We are incredibly grateful to be a part of PVS.
