Built to make a difference. This Vaka Motu is not exactly new in Vanuatu, it has been here and there for almost two years, right after Cyclone PAM. The boat and its crew have helped with disaster relief work by delivering crops and seedlings to the different islands where the agriculture was weakened or destroyed. Its first passage dated to when the fleet of Pacific Voyagers went all the way to Solomon Pacific Art Festival after a two year journey across the Pacific to revive traditional sailing. The crew will talk about our sustainable boat and its impact fighting climate change as well as about the cultural history of Vanuatu but also give crash courses in traditional sailing. Some will recognized the way-finding techniques used in the movie « Moana », whose producers have worked with members of the Pacific Voyagers (former Okeanos) in Tahiti. « A la carte » and birdwatching tours are also among our future activities.
