Legendary yacht Maiden sailed into the Hawaii Yacht Club, on the fourth stopover of a worldwide tour to raise awareness and funds for girls’ education around the globe.
Co-Skipper Sharon Ferris-Choat reported: “We just literally surfed into Honolulu- we came in on surfing wave into the harbour after 22 days from Auckland! What a fantastic trip and welcome.”
It was wonderful to see Maiden and the crew being escorted into Hawaii by a group of young sailors. After they had docked, they were honoured to be presented with traditional leis by young members of the Hawaii Yacht Club!
Maiden is being hosted at the HYC in Honolulu until 11 July 2019. This is when the crew are set to depart on the next 2761 nautical mile leg for Vancouver, Canada.
The skippers and crew are looking forward to a host of exciting activities on this stopover! Activities include a 4th of July BBQ and fireworks at the yacht club to meeting local sailors and athletes. For your chance to come and meet the crew, tour the boat and see videos of the tour so far, Sunday the 7th will be an Open Day at HYC (1100-1500hrs).
We’ll be sharing more event details on our Facebook page soon, so keep an eye out to learn more. If you’re in Hawaii, we’d love you to come and say hi!
