Anders Svedland, a Swede, arrived in Apia late September after rowing an
open boat, the Waka Moana, 5,000 miles across the South Pacific from
Chile. He passed through the French nuclear test zone off Tahiti. He
planned to spend a few days in Apia and then ship his boat to new
Zealand, where he intends to settle.
