Matthew Atkin photographs the outrigger canoes of Olango and Mactan

Here are some more of my brother’s stunning photos from the Far East. Today’s shots of mainly outrigger canoes – mostly what are known as bancas – come from Olango and Mactan in the Phillipines. Click on the images for a much bigger and better view. Thanks Matt!

Documentary film: Marshallese Sailing Canoes Today

Wa Kuk Wa Jimor – Marshallese Canoes Today from Rachel Miller on Vimeo. My thanks to excellent boat designer and small boat sailor Michael Storer for passing on the link to this film about these wonderful Marshallese sailing canoes. I gather the making of the film was part-funded Hawai‘i Council for the Humanities.
