Maui Monday

After nearly two weeks at sea, the crew is happy to see land again. Currently, we are about 257 nm away from our destination of Lahaina, Maui. Lahaina has some beautiful natural landscapes so people have talked about going diving, surfing, hiking, or even just lounging around on a beach.
