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.

Lolesio - 13th March 2012

My day normally starts at the end of dinner, by making sure everything is put back in its rightful home and that the galley is clean for the long night ahead. At the completion of that, I sit and go through the day, what I have left, what I need to do, what I need to use and how was the weather (the weather plays a major part in planning meals for the day ahead). With those four points you get an idea for the first meal of the day: are there any eggs left? do we need bread? Etc. Some days you need to make bread, some days you make hot cakes. Other days you feel like something from home to remind you of your family and what you used to eat, as an example koko laisa, sua fa’i and kopai. Or some days you feel like slow roasted tomatoes, poached eggs, hollandaise sauce on an English muffin and blue berry oaks with a cappuccino (slim milk, decaf). Breakfast is over by 7:30am, tidy and put away…pretty soon lunch rolls around. Because of such a hearty breakfast, lunch is the Pacific Islanders only vegetarian meal. Things like, toasted sandwiches, pastas and soups. To make the pastas and soups more inviting, infusion is the go. What is infusion? It’s mixing cuisines from different neighbouring continents.

To be continued….
