Maritime Day makes a big splash

Monday October 02, 2017

Around 500 excited students from around the island descended on Avatiu wharf yesterday morning for a fun-filled World Maritime Day celebration.

A seven metre, 150 horsepower-engined boat named “Yewola”, meaning “unbeatable”, will soon be hauling in fish around the coast off Rarotonga, thanks to a generous donation via the Japanese Grassroots Human Security Project.

An increase in the number of visitors to Rarotonga and Aitutaki is resulting in them leaving behind a much bigger “foot-print” than ever before - in the form of raw sewage.

Fruit and vegetable levies that were set to push up the price of some produce this month until November 30 have been dropped.

Following two thefts in the last couple of days, police are reminding visitors to the island to be on guard.
