Pulling an Island

After more than two weeks of voyaging, Hōkūle’a and Hikianalia find land, first pulling the island of Arutua and then landing in Rangiroa on May 6, 2022. And it’s a spot that has welcomed the crews many times before. “There’s something very special about this road and the connection of the wind and the waves that always brings us here.” – Nainoa Thompson
