Sailing Distant Star: A Journey of Mishap and Marvel

In August 2019, Luka, Ashe, Ilo, Makawi, and Khalil Biela cut ties from their beloved shores of Cortes Island to discover a dream and a world beyond it. Covering 15,000 nautical miles of ocean landscape, they sailed to the South Pacific Islands and back.  They travelled in times of COVID, through fierce lightning storms, starlit luminescent nights, remote Marquesan temples, pristine underwater reefs, and iridescent lagoons. What was meant to be a coming of age for the teenagers became one for us all.
Please join us for stories, images, and blog readings about their incredible adventure.Refreshments will be available. Everyone welcome!
