|The journey officially
commenced on World Oceans Day, June 8th with 12 crew members
at the onset. From start to finish we had representatives aboard
the Alvei from Fiji, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, the United
States, Germany, Denmark, and Israeli. Some of the crew made
the long haul from Nelson, New Zealand after 43 days at sea reached
Suva, the Captial of Fiji. The Fiji Islands and the generous
spirit of the Fiji People await us. Bula, Vinaka!
