The Great Auckland Refit 2002
- the ship sails from Princes Wharf, Auckland for her 5
month voyage through the Pacific.
ends - after a huge effort from many helping hands the ship
was made ready and our voyage crew arrived. Circumstances
beyond our control delayed sailing until Sunday, which brought
blue skies and a gentle breeze for the first afternoon cruise
up the coast.
There were tears and cheers
as lines were cast off and Captain Tony Davies steered the
ship towards the Hauraki Gulf.
