Polynesian migration route followed

Two 38ft Wharram catamarans have completed a 4,000 mile voyage through the South Pacific from the Philippines to the Solomon Islands to follow the route on the ancient Polynesians.

They had no modern navigation aids on board and used stars, the sun, wave patterns and bird movements to navigate.

The Lapita Voyage ended in Tikopia and Anuka where the outrigger-style cats were given away to the local populace.
