PLEASE NOTE: The start of Level 1 Classes has been pushed back to Thursday, Feb 23rd.

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be a crew member on a voyaging canoe? Now here’s your chance. Honolulu Community College, in partnership with the Polynesian Voyaging Society, will be starting its next series of crew training.

Level I: Basic Crew Member Training will give you the opportunity to learn about the history of the Polynesian Voyaging Society, parts of a canoe, seamanship and navigation basics. Becoming a crew member is an intense and extensive process and we are not part of the selection process. Although you won’t be going on a sail at this level, this course will introduce you to the first steps of understanding what it’s like to be a crew member of a canoe. Contact course instructor Bob Perkins at rperkins@hawaii.edu if you have any questions.
