Four Seasons Resort Oahu at Ko Olina Welcomes Hokulea; Partners with polynesian voyaging society to present legendary navigator nainoa thompson

Published on : Friday, January 5, 2018

cq5dam.web.press.400.keepaspectratio (1)Legendary navigator Nainoa Thompson first conceived the idea of Malama Honua, a worldwide voyage, in 1992. When Hōkūle`a returned to Hawaii last June, the open air, double hulled canoe had been at sea for three years and covered more than 40,000 nautical miles.

 

The voyage became a global mission, an example of how to care for island Earth, reclaiming a lost heritage and proving that Hawaiians could intentionally sail around the world.

 

Hokulea’s solar panels power communications, enabling school children to track her every move and learn about other cultures and their oceanic legacies. One hundred and forty organisations in Hawaii and around the world support “The Promise to Children” – an initiative to explore, discover and navigate a sustainable future.

 

Since her return in June 2017, Hokulea’s gratitude tour has taken her around the island. She rings in the New Year in Ko Olina, arriving at 10:00 am at Ko Olina Marina, signalling a new era focused on sustainability and ocean advocacy.

 

“We are thrilled to welcome Hokulea to Ko Olina and share this historic event in partnership with Ko Olina Resort and Four Seasons guests from around the world,” says Sanjiv Hulugalle, General Manager at Four Seasons Resort Oahu at Ko Olina.

 

On Sunday, January 28, 2018, Four Seasons will present Nainoa Thompson in an on stage event titled Hokulea: Navigating a Sustainable Future followed by a panel discussion with Hokulea crew members. The event, presented in Four Seasons Ocean Ballroom, is open to all ages, with a suggested donation to the Polynesian Voyaging Society. Guests and community are warmly welcome to attend.

 

The public is also invited to join crew members at Stars Above Hawaii, an #FSWayfinders experience, at 8:00 pm the same evening, on Four Seasons Ocean Lawn.
