It was a busy sail getting Hōkūleʻa back to New Jersey from Maine for the crew of Part 2 of Leg 22, having to time safe weather windows for transiting the Northeastern seaboard. We made stops in Boothbay, Maine; Salem and Cape Cod, Massachusetts; Newport, Rhode Island; Oyster Bay, New York; with final arrival at Newport Marina, Jersey City, New Jersey.
