2014 Vanuatu Humanitarian Aid Effort - TryBooking: Port Havannah Primary School
In 2006 I was very fortunate to be part of the first ORCV Ocean Race from Melbourne to Vanuatu.

Many boat owners, crews and their families contributed to a variety of items which were all sent in a container ahead of the boats for that first race. I did not contribute anything at the time and regretted it immediately we cleared customs after the long race.
