FRIDAY NIGHT WA'A CHAT & POT LUCK DINNER: AUGUST 29, 2014

Hui Paoakalani will host a Friday Night Wa'a Chat this weekend for all interested parties and the general public.  The Hui will be at the Great Salt Lake Marina on Friday to rig the Kailana Kaleo with her new sailing configuration (amas, iakos, mast, spar, boom and sail).  Later on Friday evening, we will have a Pot Luck dinner and will host Mr. Mark Ellis (Tammy Medeiros' Brother) who is a member of the Hokulea crew.  Mark will share his sailing knowledge and experiences with the Hokulea.  The Hokulea is currently on its Malama Honua Worldwide Voyage and is in Pago Pago, American Samoa where a new crew arrived on Monday, August 25, 2014 to prepare for the next leg of its worldwide voyage.
