After a five-day stop on the island of St. Helena, the voyaging canoe Hōkūle‘a is back on the water. The crew is continuing its journey across the Atlantic to Brazil. Hōkūle‘a navigator Kaleo Wong checked in with HPR’s Molly Solomon as part of our ongoing coverage Hōkūle‘a: Voyage of Aloha.

Hokulea plans to sight Ascension Island before reaching Natal, Brazil next month.
