Crewmembers of the Hokulea and Hikianalia had hoped to leave American Samoa sometime in this weekend, but now the departure for the next leg of the voyage is delayed again.
It’s all up to mother nature.
But there is one person who isn’t completely disappointed they haven’t left yet.
Kaiulani Murphy of Waimea on Hawaii Island, is a veteran Hokulea deep-sea voyager, and has been studying non-instrument navigation for at least 15 years now. In 2004, she navigated on her own for the first time, to the Northwestern Hawaiian Islands.
