The Great Ninigo Islands Canoe Race
"The Ninigo Islands lie 180 nautical miles north of mainland Papua New Guinea within the Western Islands of the Bismarck Archipelago. There are approximately 30 islands in this group and people of Micronesian, Melanesian and German descent populate them. These islanders are fisherman, gardeners and great craftsmen. Their understanding of the ocean is almost supernatural."
