HONOLULU (AP) — Weather is delaying the Hokulea voyaging canoe from leaving Hawaii on its worldwide voyage.

Polynesian Voyaging Society CEO Clyde Namuo said Friday that navigators consulted with meteorologists and decided to depart from Hilo, Hawaii, on Tuesday if weather allows. The canoe will make its way toward Tahiti, beginning a 3-year circumnavigation of the globe.

The boat had originally been slated to leave Saturday. Namuo says the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration predicted that winds will be more favorable three days later.
