Ta for the update. A quote from the article:

 

Kaho, the Tongan-Kiwi poet who left the 2016 voyage early amid safety and bullying concerns, believes Koning's philanthropic work should not be a shield. "There are people like me who see him as damaging and someone who needs to be stopped, and there are people who really buy what he peddles which is this white saviour on a yacht in the Pacific, helping people," she says.

"If you're not looking at him saying 'this guy is spouting a lot of sh*t,' you're buying it."

 

I'd be interested to hear what the paediatrician and Stuff health columnist Dr Tom Mulholland has to say about the medical side.

There is nothing, absolutely nothing, half so much worth doing, as simply messing about in boats
