Hawai‘i Delegation of Crew Members, Teachers and Students to Engage with Cape Town and Mossel Bay Community.
Navigating only by the stars and other natural elements, traditional Hawaiian voyaging canoe Hōkūle‘a will be arriving in Cape Town on Saturday, November 14, as part of a Worldwide Voyage covering more than 60,000 nautical miles, 100 ports, and 27 nations. South Africa marks the halfway point of the epic voyage that started from Hawai‘i in 2013. The mission of the Worldwide Voyage is to bridge traditional and new technologies to live sustainably, while sharing, learning, creating global relationships, and discovering stories of hope from around the world. During their weeklong stop in Cape Town, the Hōkūle‘a crew along with a 60-person delegation of Hawai‘i educators, students, and family will be participating and supporting the mission of the voyage by engaging with the local community through several scheduled events to be held throughout the one-week visit.
