The sailing craft were modeled and sailed using ancient Polynesian navigation practices and without modern navigation instruments.
They are next bound for San Francisco. Their website is www.pacificvoyagers.org, and their story and progress can be followed online. Ultimately, they will sail for Rapa Nui, Marquesas, and Tahiti. These voyages began a few years ago with a single similar craft, which inspired a ground swell of amazement and keen interest.
