Neville Koop, climate adviser to the Secretariat of the Pacific Regional Environment Program based in Suva, says Evan is hitting Fiji. "At this stage we anticipate the centre moving over the north eastern parts of Fiji late Sunday night."
Superyacht Big Fish is no stranger to YachtAid Global projects. They have previously moved humanitarian aid to Robinson Crusoe Island off the coast of Chile which was devastated by a Tsunami generated by the Santiago Earthquake in 2011.
Captain Winston Joyce-Clark says; "We are all on board for this drive. Big Fish is strategically located in Auckland with an intended departure date of 26 December for Fiji (ETA 31st in Nadi). Here's hoping that Sunday is not as dire as predicted and our thoughts and best wishes go out to all islanders in Oceania affected by Cyclone Evan."
This unique aid project was ok'd by the Captain at 2200 hr December 14th. YachtAid Global is frame-working the effort now and will soon release information regarding volunteers in Auckland, media inquiries, hard goods and funds donations.
