"Morning Light" Kicks Off on the Hokulea

The Hokulea

Roy Disney's "Morning Light" documentary about the trials and tribulations of 14 young sailors training for a transpacific yacht race kicked off over Thanksgiving weekend. The 14 youngsters joined Disney and master navigator Nainoa Thompson on the Hokulea, a venerable Hawaiian twin-hull canoe, to learn the ancient art of Hawaiian sailing and navigation. They will spend a few days sailing aboard the Hokulea, go home for Christmas, and return in January to train for 6 months on their own boat, the Morning Light, for a yacht race in July.
