Crew Blog: Hōkūleʻa and Hikianalia Depart for Hilo

Earlier today, we had an amazing send off from METC. Our leadership waited for the right weather conditions to begin the mālama Hawaiʻi leg of the Worldwide Voyage. In order to get to Hilo in 3 days, we decided to pick up tow to Moloka'i. It's not as rough in the Kaʻiwi Channel as we thought. Our plan is to get off of Lāʻau point ane then sail to Lānaʻi. Mahalo to our family back home and to everyone who is following the voyage!
