No boats disqualified, although rules were broken
While rules were broken, in order to keep the peace, they have opted not to disqualify any long boats from the race, says Chairman of the Fautasi Committee, Lualemaga Faoa, who announced that the results from yesterday’s fautasi race are the official results.
The announcement was made yesterday at the Governor’s Conference room by Luelemaga, who was accompanied by Lt. Governor Lemanu Peleti Mauga. A closed-door meeting took place before the public announcement, which was attended by captains and village representatives.
