Hokule'a in NYC Post 2: A Magnificent Welcome to NYC, plus schedule info

I'm already getting out of order on these, I was very fortunate in having another Hokule'a experience yesterday,  but today's welcoming ceremony was just too amazing to not put up pictures right away. Words fail me, but click here to visit a Flickr album from the day. Amazing!

Again, for updates on her schedule, visit either and BTW, has a couple extra events that are not specifically Polynesian Voyaging Society events but are Hokule'a-related, and has some details about days you can tour the wa'a that Halawai doesn't, so it's worth visiting both. For Facebook users, Hokulea Crew is fun to follow.

For NYC area boaters who might be interested in seeing her out on the water, Capt. Maggie Flanagan at the Waterfront Alliance, who oversaw a lot of the on-water logistics (a big job in our very active and highly regulated harbor!), knew that might be the case, and although some of Hokule'a's movements aren't really solidly predictable, she was able to provide two times when plans are known - these will be your best chances: 

Friday, June 10th, about 5:30 to 6:30 am, westbound on the East River, moving south between Long Island City and Brooklyn Bridge 

 Sunday, June 19th, about 8:30 to 9:30 am, eastbound on the East River, moving north between Brooklyn Bridge and Roosevelt Island
