EDDIE WOULD GO! CLYDE AIKAU INTERVIEW from THE WESTSIDERS – www.thewestsiders.com EDDIE WOULD GO! CLYDE AKUI INTERVIEW- DON’T DO DRUGS! extras from AWARD WINNING FILM THE Westsiders Movie: Lost at sea In 1978, the Polynesian Voyaging Society was seeking volunteers for a 30-day, 2500-mile (4000 km) journey to follow the ancient route of the Polynesian migration between the Hawaiian and Tahitian island chains. At 31 years of age, Aikau joined the voyage as a crew member. The Hokule’a left the Hawaiian islands on March 16, 1978. The double-hulled voyaging canoe developed a leak in one of the hulls and later capsized about twelve miles (19 km) south of the island of Molokai. In an attempt to get help, Aikau paddled toward Lanai on his surfboard.[6] Although the rest of the crew was later rescued by the US Coast Guard, Aikau was never seen again. The ensuing search for Aikau was the largest air-sea search in Hawaii history.[7] The last person lifeguard Eddie Aikau rescued at Waimea Bay was a young TV producer named John Orland, who had just wrapped up production on a TV pilot called the “Hawaii Experience,” starring Bob Crane from Hogan’s Heroes. He was rescued on February 19, 1978, less than a month before Eddie Aikau was lost at sea.
