Hōkūleʻa: Enjoying a Day Off

Being a part of the Worldwide Voyage is a privilege that each crew member is grateful for. As such, our kuleana, or responsibilities, are numerous and our days are packed with duties, events, and outreach, both on and off the canoes. If we are not careful to find a balance in our schedule, it is easy to become weary. That’s why we try to make the most of the few precious days off that we get as a crew—we all know that when it’s time to raise the sails again, you had better be physically, mentally, and spiritually ready to go. Here are some photos from a recent excursion that we took in Samoa after the busy week of the SIDS conference.

Even on our days off, we crave to get time in the water.  Here, Hōkūle'a and Hikianalia crew bond over some down time at To Sua Trench in Samoa.  (Photo by Daniel Lin)
