FULAGA trio Setareki Domonisere, Joeli Taufa, Mosese Tamuyali won the Triple Sailor event of the Veitau Waqa-The Boat Lives competition, an official event of the Fiji Hibiscus Festival at the Suva Harbour yesterday.

Initiated by the Pacific Blue Foundation, the Triple Sailor is the newly introduced competition this year.

Tamuyali who is part of the winning crew said it was a proud moment for the trio.

"We never thought of winning this event," he said.

"It's the first time I am competing but my teammates have competed here before. This is one of the happiest moments of my life to be part of this Hibiscus sailing event."

Tamuyali said they used a brand new canoe yesterday. The canoe was just three days old, about 32ft long.
