Balancing the Canoe

Pwo Navigator Nainoa Thompson and Hōkūleʻa Captain Lehua Kamalu describe trusting the natural world and the principles of adjusting the sails to balance the canoe. “The navigator needs to know what’s the line they want to sail, they need to know the natural environment and where the forces are coming from, and then they need to go set the course and balance these sails.” – Nainoa Thompson
