Hōkūleʻa Update | August 17, 2015

Aloha, this is Bruce Blankenfeld on board Hōkūleʻa in the Indian Ocean. And we have steady winds and nice gentle seas. Today, we had some good speeds of about 7 knots. Other periods we slowed down between 5.5-6 knots. Overall, we did 70 miles today, and our course is Lā Kona, which is one house or 11.25 degrees south of west. Clear skies, sunny, hot. No birds, no fish, and the occasioanl cargo net and marine debris. The canoe and crew are doing well. Thank you for following us at Hokulea.com.

Please help keep us sailing for future generations. All contributions make a difference for our voyage. Mahalo nui loa!
