Pago Pago, AMERICAN SAMOA — For the safety of all the crews competing in this years’ fautasi race due to inclement weather, the Flag Day race was postponed to next week, Tuesday, April 23.

The decision was made at a meeting called by the race committee which included Lt. Gov.  Laapui Talauega E.V. Ale, P.C. Mauga Tasi Asuega, and all fautasi boat captains and village representatives.

A press release from the Governor’s Office said it was a unanimous decision supported by all captains, and the general consensus was to have a race not only when it is calm but a longer race as originally planned.
