In 2001, the Pulawatese canoe Quest arrived on Guam, piloted by Manny Sikau, a traditional navigator. The craft has lingered long on Guam, damaged by Typhoon Pongsona in 2002. But now the canoe is headed for Palau and the Festival of Pacific Arts – though it will be shipped to the island nation, not sailed. Traditional seafarers are still learning on Guam, and with typhoon season already begun they are leery of heading to Palau in the outrigger canoe.
