Hokule'a update, Friday June 17 - Tours today, sailing tomorrow

Sorry about NO NOTICE, but with our choppy waters and not-so-great docking in the recreational sections of the NYC waterfront, this is ending up being the only chance to actually board the Hokule'a before she heads on her way tomorrow.

Tomorrow's sail plan, as shared by Captain Maggie, from the Waterfront Alliance, this morning:

Latest update, which can be posted, is that Hokulea might be seen underway on Saturday - between 11am and 1pm travelling the waters from off Jersey City, crossing the Battery, and off Governors Island Pier 101. Immediately following, Hokulea might be seen underway eastbound in the East River moving north between Governors Island and Roosevelt Island. 

 Please remember there's a 25 yard security zone around tunnel ventilators and commercial and ferry docks.

 The kayak landing at Governors Island is not yet replaced.

 Thank you all! Maggie

After tomorrow, Hokule'a heads north to Mystic, CT, where she'll be attending Mystic Seaport's WoodenBoat Show, and then she'll be in Martha's Vineyard from June 28th - July 1st (thanks to Sam Low for that particular update, see picture he'd shared below!), and then points north.
