The losers of the fishing competition between Vaitupu people who live on the outer-island and those who have moved to the main island, were coated with mud and have washed themselves in the lagoon. Traditionally the victors watch from the shore jeering, laughing, and making fun. The weekend long gathering acknowledges an historic event and is designed to unite families separated by the need for employment on the island capital of Funafuti.
