Update | Aloha from Mark Towill

Aloha! My name is Mark Towill, racer and general manager of Team Alvimedica, coming to you from the deck of Hikianalia. We’re here in Auckland, New Zealand and out for a training sail. It has been a great day. I haven’t been on one of these canoes for a long time. I was quite involved with the Polynesian Voyaging Society back when I was in high school. In the last couple of years, I’ve been racing sail boats professionally, and I am here with the Volvo Ocean Race that is going around the world right now. It’s fantastic to be here at the same time as Hōkūleʻa and Hikianalia and reconnect with the whole community and see some familiar faces from Hawaiʻi. So it has been a wonderful day and we’re just headed back in. So I hope you guys continue to follow us on Hokulea.com. Aloha!
