Mayotte: Races of traditional canoes, a success in the heart of the Marine Park




The marine park of the island of Mayotte has recently organized for the first time three races of traditional canoes, including the challenge of young fundis (14 to 18 years), adult fundis challenge and the challenge of fundis enterprises.
 
 These traditional races were intended to share and promote the Mahoran cultural heritage as part of marine environment.
 
The marine park of the island of Mayotte has sponsored the nautical event with a budget of 16,000 euros.
 
An exhibition on canoes made ​​by students of the college of Bandrélé and the Mahoran maritime cultural heritage has been featured on the beach.
 
As a reminder, the authentic canoe locally called "fundi" is still used for the practice of artisanal fisheries.
