Polynesian Voyaging Society

I want to follow the old ways while I cross. After numerous attempts to contact the Polynesian Voyaging Society, I reach out to this forum.
Probably the best start is to know the stars as they rise while you go.

Yes, I have been learning from the center.

I am looking to connect with sailors who sail using the old ways.

Re: Polynesian Voyaging Society

Tom,

Are you looking to mix and match different old ways? For example, a lodestone is pretty old, but it's doubtful the Polynesians had them. How modern is too far? Astrolabe? Quadrant?
Will you eschew charts entirely?
lastly, which of the three boats on your profile do you intend to take?

32 Bayfield. Looking for sailors that use the old ways of the Polynesians and post a blog. A day to day log.

Will have modern devices.
