Deveron boat designers arrive at Anuta.

The Lapita Voyage has been competed. 4000Nm of arduous sailing, Hanneke Boon of James Wharram Designs in Deveron arrived back in Britain earlier this month. The video footage is of the arrival at Anuta, sister island to Tikopia, where the traditional hand made Polynesian based design catamaran was delivered by Hanneke and her son.

The Islands of Tikopia and Anuta, part of the Solomon Islands, are so remote that their only contact with the outside world is via a cargo ship that passes once every three months. The islanders once had ocean going catamarans of their own: there’s one surviving relic in a maritime museum in New Zealand that inspired Hanneke Boon to recreate an original copy called ‘Child of the Sea’ based on her studies of ancient Polynesian crafts, and gift it back to the people of the islands.
