Hokule'a, the 40 foot double-hulled replica of a traditional Polynesian canoe, is on a world wide voyage to raise awareness of the rare and fragile beauty our natural world. She arrives in Vineyard Haven harbor today and will be open to the public Wednesday. She sails to Woods Hole this Friday.
The real story, and history, of Hokule'a is that only the constellations, winds and currents guide her voyages. Though she is accompanied on her journey by another vessel with modern instruments in case of emergency, the crew of Hokule'a relies only on the natural world to guide them around the world.
