Fun Sailing Facts

  • Other than a harbor for boats, port refers to the Left side. "Starboard" means the Right side. We find it easier to remember this by thinking about how port and left both have 4 letters.
  • A green light refers to the Starboard side.A Schooner is the name of a sailing vessel where the rear (aft) mast is taller than the front (for'ard) mast.
  • When visiting another country within territorial waters, it is an old custom to fly your own country flag called a "courtesy Flag" above all other flags.

    Fun Maui Information

  • In 1778, Captain James Cook sailed to Maui, but he never set foot on the island. He is credited as being the first non-Islander to see the island. Cook's expeditions are still a sore subject among native Hawaiian people.
  • The first European to set foot on the island was the French Admiral Jean Francois de Galaup de La Perouse. He sailed to south Maui, and he landed at what is now called La Perouse Bay on May 29th, 1786.
