Restoration: The Partnership That Saved Hokulea
Level II - Crew Member Training
While on board a voyaging canoe, each crewmember is assigned specific kuleana (responsibilities). These kuleana (14 major areas) allow the waʻa to become prepared for a voyage as well as to stay safe and efficient while voyaging. This course explains each kuleana, its importance to the waʻa and the steps needed for crew assigned to each kuleana to execute in an efficient and safe manner. Discussions will take place on chain-of-command, 1st Mate, Watch Captains, and Navigator. This course will have time spent on an actual waʻa kalua.
