The voyage from the Galápagos Islands to Rapa Nui (Easter Island), approximately 1,900 nautical miles, was the only blue-water long distance leg that took place without a Pwo (master) navigator aboard. The tiny remote island of Rapa Nui, which is about the size of Lāna‘i, is considered one of the most difficult islands to find using traditional wayfinding. A team of four apprentice navigators worked together using their knowledge of the stars and taking directional cues from their observations of nature. They spotted the island after 16 days about 43 nautical miles away. Come hear from the crew about the adventures of this unique leg of the voyage.

This six-part Traditions of the Pacific lecture series is made possible through the generous support from Hawai’i Tourism Authority and the Tommy Holmes Foundation and in partnership with Polynesian Voyaging Society.
