What We Should Be Doing


For most of the last ten years we have taken a short flight up to Fiji where I have my Tamanu stored under a friends house.  A few hours to clean it up and put it back together and we're off for a couple weeks of exploring and trolling for those delicious Spanish Mackerel.   This year Rose has had surgery on her shoulder and won't be doing anything too active for a few more months.  So we'll be staying at home until next season when I'll be trialing a new lug sail made out of an old sail.

  3. Hi Gary!
    I am discovering your great blog. I just moved to Suva, and I am wondering where I could learn to sail on traditional outrigger boats. Do you know any school/club, or maybe just boat owners/builders in Fiji who could help me to find?
    All the best!
