Uto Ni Yalo Trust co-founder, Collin Philp passed away after a short illness yesterday.

Philp was on kidney dialysis and went to Australia last month for his surgery. He was an ocean activist, sailor, surfer and paddler and was deeply involved with organisations such as the Suva Harbour Foundation and the Fiji Outrigger Canoeing Association.

The Uto ni Yalo Trust has paid tribute to the late Philp and have passed their sympathies to his partner Lee-Anne and the entire Philp family.

They say Philpโ€™s vision was for sustainable sea transport and a return to traditional voyaging to ensure the skills of our Pacific people are transferred to the next generation.

The Trust says Philp inspired them to achieve great things and give back to Fiji in so many ways.

They say Philpโ€™s legacy of service to voyaging and ocean advocacy in Fiji and the Pacific is marked by the sense of pride, belief and commitment he showed for their crew and mission.

The Trust further says Philp will be honoured in several ways during the coming weeks.
