The Pacific Voyager canoes are here in Kauai
, getting ready to head
off to San Francisco
. Talking to one of the navigators yesterday. They are supposed to use traditional navigation--sun, stars, wind
, waves, currents, birds, sealife, etc. He said that they know the South Pacific
, but don't know the North, and they were looking for anyone with knowledge that they could pass on.
So, anyone on the forum who has spent enough time out there to contribute something useful for them?? They know about going north around the Pacific High, but what else--water temperature, fog
, birds?? How do they know when they are getting close to the coast? I am doing the trip next month, but other than navigating by trash in the ocean, I can't help them.
