Tavuki School from the playing field
Mary and the weaving to take back for the ICARUS crew
Hibiscus IIIWe've Just returned to NZ to fresh snow and temperatures well below the gentle mid-twenties we’d become accustomed to in Fiji. All a bit fast and shocking really.
We left Hibiscus at an exciting point in the project; Lia Fal had just arrived in Suva, Ratbag has since arrived, and a workshop/meeting in the village at Solodamu is planned for this week. Hibiscus was due to sail back to Solodamu with some of the Bogiva whanau on board on Thursday.
Hibiscus III enroute to Fiji
It is nearly the end of August, Hibiscus festival is underway in Suva, the fleet is in port and an update for the website is long overdue. Much has happened and generally speaking all is on track. The weather has been changeable, a couple of squally periods to break up the sunny trade winds.
Ay Bula all, Been pretty slack with the whole writing blogs side of things ( my first one ) but have been kept very busy leading up to the trip and since we've been here in fiji. So to bring it all up to date it's all going swimmingly (above the water line ofcourse). Sam on Lia Fal at Doug'sWe had an amazing trip up on ratbag once the weather finialy permitted us to leave, 15 days passage with a 3 day stop over at Minerva reef, which im convinced is one of the true natural wonders of the world.
Hi Guys! Ainara here. I am a Basque girl that took part in this unforgettable trip.
Me and my boyfriend Rich, after living in NZ for 2 years decided to travel to the South Pacific Islands. Travelling by boat? Ainara returning from gardensThat was not in my plans. He really wanted to do it so I did it for love …..
Being born by the sea helped me to love and respect it, however my knowledge of sailing was zero before this epic trip and I was concerned about my ability to be useful…..
