The Uto ni Yalo (Heart of Spirit) is a double-hulled sailing canoe that fuses traditional Pacific canoe design with modern boat-building materials. It is owned and operated by the Fiji Voyaging Society to help recapture the traditions and culture of Fiji’s rich maritime history, while promoting sustainable sea transportation. This is a steering oar from the Uto ni Yalo.
