We heard that "Sea Wall" journeyed to Majuro and won the Regata canoe race one year. This sail (and most of the others) was made from tarpulins provided by FEMA after a storm damaged many Ailuk roofs. The clear water lets the reefs show clearly (black), though they are several feet beneath the surface.
