Photo by @cristinamittermeier. It was such a privilege to photograph a small portion of the worldwide voyage of the Hawaiian sailing canoe Hōkūleʻa. In its journey, it will navigate 47000 nautical miles to 85 ports & 26 nations with no modern instruments. Its mission is to grow a global movement toward a sustainable ocean. May it have safe travels! To see more images of my travels around the world #followme at @CristinaMittermeier.
