Everyone in Marlborough is encouraged to take a day off work and come to the Waitohi/Picton foreshore to give the Tuia 250 flotilla an enormous welcome.
This will be followed by a civic ceremony to welcome the crews from Tahiti, Aotearoa and Australia.
The vessels include:
The Haunui from Tāmaki Makaurau/Auckland
Ngahiraka Mai Tawhiti from Tauranga
Fa’afaite i te Ao Mā’ohi, a va’a moana from Pape'ete, Tahiti.
The HMB Endeavour replica from the Australian National Maritime Museum in Sydney
The Spirit of New Zealand from Tamaki Makaurau/Auckland.
More details to come... see you there!
