A trip of a lifetime. A voyage from Fiji to Australia to raise awareness of the effect climate change and the rising sea levels is having on the Pacific Islands. Uto Ni Yalo is one of the seven traditional Polynesian sailing canoes built by the Oceanus Foundation of the Sea and gifted to Fiji. It is a 72 foot Vaka Moana, double masted traditional Polynesian sailing canoe, power completely by wind and solar. This trip included sixteen crew - a mix of artists and experienced sailors. We slept below in the two hulls of the vaka and had a kitchen and toilet on the deck. We were divided into three watches- 3 hours on, 6 hours off. We hit one storm and I managed to kill one camera.
