Halfway around the world, H?k?le‘a crew members are making preparations to depart Cape Town, South Africa. The voyaging canoe is currently in dry dock, where repairs are being made before it sets off on its next leg. We caught up with Hokulea captain K?lepa Baybayan as part of our ongoing series H?k?le‘a Voyage of Aloha.

The next destination for H?k?le‘a is Brazil. The new crew plans to depart South Africa in two weeks.
