Hokulea moves on to Brisbane, as Hikianalia continues to sail home

Hawaii has two voyaging canoes on the move Saturday.

Hokulea has set sail from Sydney, Australia, and is heading north to Brisbane.

It has sailed about 120 miles and has about 300 to go before arrival.

In Brisbane, there will be a crew change as well.

In the meantime, Hikianalia is sailing north of Tahiti, heading toward the equator and ultimately home to Hawaii next month under the direction of three young navigators in their 20s.

Hikianalia has sailed nearly 200 miles from Papeete since a few days ago, about 2,200 miles to go.
