The legendary Hawaiian canoe Hokulea is set to embark on a historic round-the-world trip setting out from Oahu. The double-hulled 3-sail vessel was built in the 1970’s using traditional Polynesian boat designs and has become an icon for Native Hawaiian culture. It will set out on what is planned to be a 3-year journey covering 47,000 miles with stops in as many as 85 ports on six continents.
