The Samoa Voyaging Socety (SVS) works to promote positive Samoan cultural values, respect for the ocean and nature, individual and social responsibility, discipline and integrity.

The SVS considers that the reintroduction of traditional sailing in Samoa will provide opportunities for youth development (sports, leadership), environmental awareness, cultural development and, potentially, tourism opportunities such as whale watching and adventure tours.

SVS is developing hands-on educational and training programmes in traditional sailing and navigation. The programmes will target young Samoan youth including school children, school leavers and other interested groups. The task of learning traditional sailing and navigation skills also develops leadership and discipline among the youth, leading to well-rounded young people capable of contributing positively to the growth of this nation.

Fealofani Bruun - 29 February 2012

Position: 07°48.74’ N / 093°00.18

My shift is on at the moment and it consists of Jayde, who is currently on the foe, Schannel who’s jamming away with the other boys and Faapau who is keeping an eagle eye on Jayde and her steering.

Amazing fact: Faapau can eat 10 boiled eggs within thirty mins.
Funny moment: High density of bioluminescence in our current position- Taleni goes to the side one night to pee and exclaims outloud ‘Oooh Christmas lights!’
Favorite meal so far: freshly baked scones, baked eggs and herbed tomatoes (breakfast).
Favorite meal done by crew: sushi, seared I’a, oka, fai ai fe’e, sashimi ma le sua i’a.
Best shift time: 0300-0600- watch amazing sunrises and being there for breakfast.

Faafetai tele lava Samoa mo le taupuaiga, ua malosi uma matou le auva’a. Mange tak Dad for alt! Savner dig meget isaer med turen ned til Galapagos!


Fealofani Bruun ma le auva’a Gaualofa
