Hōkūle'a arrival in Wrangell delayed due to COVID-19 exposure
June 21, 2023
The Polynesian Voyaging Society vessel Hōkūle’a had been scheduled to arrive in Wrangell on Monday, June 26, but due to the crew’s exposure to COVID-19 in Juneau the vessel delayed its departure from Angoon by a day. The plan is to leave Angoon on Friday, June 23.
The vessel is now scheduled to arrive in Wrangell on Tuesday, June 27, a day later than originally expected.
Rapid PCR tests have been conducted, none of the crew have symptoms and all are feeling well, according to a revised schedule from the crew.
Barring any other delays, the Hōkūle’a is scheduled to arrive in Kake between 2 and 3 p.m. on Friday, June 23, departing two days later for Petersburg, and then arriving in Wrangell on June 27. The arrival time will be dependent on weather, though a tentative arrival time is set for about 11 a.m.
The Wrangell community potluck is now scheduled for Wednesday, June 28, and the Hōkūle’a will depart for Ketchikan the next day.
All scheduled dates and times are dependent on weather.
