After a historic stay in New York City, Hōkūle‘a is back in the water, continuing its sail around the world. The canoe recently landed in Rhode Island, on the East Coast of the mainland. We caught up with captain Kalepa Baybayan as part of our ongoing series: Hōkūle‘a: Voyage of Aloha.

Next on Hokulea's sail plan is Mystic, Connecticut. The crew will continue sailing along the East Coast towards Maine, with plans to reach Canada later this year.
