History sails the high seas

Advertiser Staff

The 122-foot square-topsail schooner Lynx, a replica of a privateer or naval schooner from the War of 1812, will be docked at Ko Olina Resort & Marina until Saturday. Fitted with period ordnance and flying pennants and flags of the 1812 era, the Lynx operates as an interactive ocean classroom.

  • Dockside tours are $5 per person, 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. daily.
  • A trade-wind sail is $50 per person, 1 to 4 p.m. daily ($25 for 12 and younger).
  • Student-group education program sail is $35 per student.
  • Reservations: Windward Community College, 235-7433.

Get The Who live

Here's a souvenir you couldn't buy at The Who's Honolulu and Maui concerts two weeks ago: CD recordings of both shows, direct from the band's soundboard. The Who has authorized full-length recordings of every one of its 2004 shows for fans to order online as two-CD sets.

At $27.50 each, memories of "Won't Get Fooled Again" and "My Generation" aren't cheap. But proceeds from all sales go to youth charities. Visit www.thewhostore.com.


Greg Morago | Hartford (Conn.) Courant, on the attention Hawai'i is getting from four current TV shows:

"It's not like Hawai'i has gone wanting for TV recognition. After all, there was 'Hawaii Five-O,' 'Magnum, P.I.' and more recently, 'Average Joe: Hawaii.' But maybe it was 'American Idol's' Jasmine Trias aloha spirit that got the lu'au going ... Whatever, King Kamehameha would be proud."
