‘Golden Rule’ to arrive Sunday

The sailboat Golden Rule is expected to make its port of call at the Nawiliwili Small Boat Harbor at noon Sunday, and the public is welcome to greet her.

The small sailboat was in Hawaii in the 1950s, and played a pivotal role in ending global atmospheric nuclear testing. Now she’s back, on a trans-Pacific voyage, with a renewed mission to rid the world of nuclear weapons, a press release said.

Her crew interacts with communities, offering sailing excursions and speaking in high schools, churches and civic clubs.

Music, dance, awards and potluck foods will welcome the Golden Rule.

“The Golden Rule’s voyage is not just a nostalgia tour,” according to a press release.

Her storied past includes how her crew was jailed attempting to disrupt the weapons testing in the Marshall Islands, and how she later sank, twice, before being restored and returned to her nuclear-free mission.
