7 Waka Moana set sail from Auckland yesterday for Hawaii. Navigating by the stars in the traditional Polynesian style from Auckland to Hawaii via French Polynesia (and eventually San Francisco).

On left, Te Matau a Maui (NZ, Aotearoa), centre Gaualofa (Samoa), and right, Uto Ni Yalo (Fiji). They sail via Fakarava, Nuku Hiva (French Polynesia.), Hilo, Kawaihae, Honolulu (and eventually San Francisco)! Brave.

I thought I commented on this drawing, but maybe it was on the urban sketchers site. I really think you did a wonderful job on this scene. I wonder how they are doing. I'll double check, I should be following you. I look forward to more of your sketches.
