Wave Piloting In the Marshall Island

On June 19 and 20, 2017, I participated in a workshop on Wave Piloting in the Marshall islands, organised by the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Studies of Harvard University, Cambridge, USA. The four participants were all part of our field trip in June 2015, John Huth (navigation expert at Harvard University), Joe Genz (antropologist of University of Hawaii) and Alson Kelen (navigor in training of WAM, Majuro, Marshall islands).

Our aim, and dream, is to provide scientific support for the revival of the traditional way of sailing in the Marshall islands with outrigger canoes and to train a new generation of navigators.
