Hōkūleʻa Revisited: 1976 Crew Member Talk at Ritz Carlton Kapalua, Maui
August 19, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Join us for this rare opportunity to meet and talk story with some of the all-star crew who sailed Hōkūleʻa’s historic maiden voyage to from Hawaiʻi to Tahiti and back. Participating crew members include Buffalo Keaulana, Snake Ah Hee, Billy Richards, John Kruse, Gordon Piʻianaia, Penny Martin, Kimo Lyman, Marion Lyman-Mersereau, Makaala Yates and Kainoa Lee.
While it has been centuries since Maui welcomed its first inhabitants, the message behind Kapalua, meaning “arms embracing the sea,” remains today. Among Hawaii’s most breathtaking resorts, The Ritz-Carlton, Kapalua captivates guests with luxury amenities and activities that highlight the surrounding natural beauty.
