Today, 28th of April - exactly 59 years after Kon-Tiki- the Tangaroa raft today left La Punta Callao heading for Polynesia. Here we go!
                                                                                 
Tangaroa had a grand departure with two different ceremonies organized by La Marina de Guerra del Perú. Yesterday, the 27th of April, the raft was launched in the Naval Base SIMA, and was baptized by Mona Higraff, wife of the expedition’s leader Torgeir. About 100 invited guests and a large group of international reporters witnessed the event.
The crew were all very excited to see the raft’s behaviour on water: - Is the floatability as good as expected? Hugs and cheers spread among the group when they finally watched the raft floating like a swan!
                                                                                                                  
The departure ceremony today on the Escuela Naval at La Punta was really outstanding; an unforgettable frame for a moment of emotion. It was a strange experience watching the raft sliding slowly away into the fog while the band played ”Auld Lang Syne”…



Thor Heyerdahl and his crew used 101 days on their journey with the Kon-Tiki in 1947, ending at the island Raroia. Tangaroa will sail a bit further – to Tahiti – but they expect to be able to sail faster than Kon-Tiki. What remains is to see how long it will actually take them to cross the Pacific....

It does not use trunks male type, but FEMALE, by of correct flotation although of smaller duration. The Peruvian crew I consist of:· Carlos Caravedo Arca (Head of expedition)· Jaime Toledo Gongora· Jose Mataush RichtackPeruvian raft "TANGAROA" use a candle of 6 xs 4 meters but another small one of mizzen. I found serious vicissitudes to construct the raft; great difficulties to obtain the game. I had to construct to the "SINGLE TANGAROA" in a turn of the called place "the brave sea" in the Callao. Being the "TANGAROA" in well equipped flotation and - being the month of April - and ready, the exit was prevented me. With my companions of passage they imposed problems to us that did not have the previous rafts that left from the Callao for Polynesia. The refusal of capitania of port, I commit myself to maintain the "TANGAROA" anchored and encharcada in poza del Yatch Peruvian Club del Callao, for three long months. In the month of Julio - total winter - I obtained the permission. Thanks to the deafening noise produced by the sirens of the boats and other boats let go the aft mooring lines in the port, the "TANGAROA" leaves to 11 Polynesia to a.m. of the 26 of Julio of 1965. Peruvian raft "TANGAROA" with its Peruvian crew was hauled of poza of the Yatch Club crossed the Pacifico Ocean in 115 days, of which 18 days we used them in passing Tuamotu being the only raft that has managed to cross archipielago dangerous archipelago of French Polynesia by its own means.

I hope this message gets to the Tangaroa. Aloha! (that is Polynesian for hello ha!)I hope the fishing is good and the weather treats you well, some rain a bit of wind, but no storms.I also hope that you can translate English.I live in Mission Beach, so if you overshoot your mark, you can come and visit.I felt it timely to go over some of Thors work, so I wrote an article which I hope gets published soon. It iscalled Genetics rewrites Pacific prehistory.It shows that genetics is actually proving Thor was right after all!Acceptance of the facts is the difficult hurdle. So many scientists have been backing the wrong horse, you will see them all with their heads in the sand or retiring early.I always wanted to meet Thor. His adventurous spirit captured my imagination. I began reading his books as an 11 year old in Fiji. Aku Aku was the first.I have spent my life on rafts too - rubber ones - on the white water rivers of North Queensland as a tour guide. When Thor died, I felt motivated not to let his ideas die and I made a website called Polynesian Pathways which was up and running by October of 2002 less than six months after his death.If you have time to view it, it is at; www.polynesian-prehistory.com and can also easily be found using Google.Good luck in your adventure, keep your spirits up, and don't fall overboard!Regards Peter Marsh

Congratulations on your successful voyage. It is fantastic that you were directed to Ra-ia-tea (Sun-people-white). The notion that Raiatea was the cultural centre of the "Red Men" or red heads (as they were known in Samoan and Kiribati legend) Makes so much sense. They also had a centre in Tahiti centred around the pyramid sited by Captain Cook called Maha-ia-tea (Many-people-white). According to Kiribati legend they practiced human sacrifice on a horrific scale, but were defeated in Samoa (Sacred bird) by Polynesian chief Savea (descended from the Hawaiian Polynesians)who abhorred the practice. This happened in the 13th Century, the time when numerous fortified sites around the Pacific have been dated. These Red Heads from Peru were not descended from the Lapita people, although they may have had a common origin in the more distant past(1,500BC), possibly from Harappa when it was destroyed by the dark skinned folk of India - as per Maori legend.see www.polynesian-prehistory.comPeter Marsh

Tangaroa- Pacific raft expedition

Here is one especially for raft-builders: Tangaroa is a raft expedition, following the route of Thor Heyerdahl's famous Kon-tiki raft that sailed from Peru to Polynesia in 1947. Heyerdahl's grandson is part of this expedition, and the raft got underway on...
