Fiji Day In Savusavu

Celebrations are being held all round Fiji this weekend for Fiji Day, it was once called Cession Day week end, in remembrances of when Fiji was ceded to Great Britain.

When Fiji gained Independence in 1970 it was renamed Fiji Day.

There were many things organised in Savusavu over this long weekend, the major one being. The Savusavu Outrigger Cup computation.

Paddlers from around Fiji descended on Savusavu for the four day computation.

Unfortunately the weather hasn't been the best, we have had a lot of rain, & especially today, it started off as a beautiful morning, but by midday heavy rain & strong winds have been experienced all over.

The Paddlers hadn't started races when we passed Daku Resort, on the way back to the Copra Shed, people & outriggers were all set up on the beach in front of the resort.

Caught a nice 17kg Wahoo this morning before the weather changed.
