Hokule’a Due In Palau

Just got off the phone with David in Palau. He’s waiting down in Melekau with a large crowd for the arrival of the Hokule’a and the Alingano Maisu into Palau. The two sailing canoes left Yap on Friday and are expected to arrive any minute now.

Apparently there was something here on Guam for some sailors heading down to relieve the crews in Palau last Friday. I didn’t get word until late that evening though, so I missed out. It’s sad, but I’ll survive. Now I need to go batten down the hatches for this storm’s approach.
