Anuta outrigger canoes!

One of my favorite aspects of sailing to these outward islands is experiencing their canoes!  It is fun to see how they are the same and how so completely different they can be across thousands of miles of sea.

 Canoes used daily for fishing are stored beneath the shade of the bluff

Shown here is a canoe designed by James Wharram.  It was part of a project to bring sailing double canoes to both Anuta and Tikopia.  This canoe periodically makes trips for supplies or to carry people to and from the Santa Cruz Islands.
