Been out to see the arrival of the HMD Endeavour, Spirit of NZ and a Waka into Mercury Bay this morning. All quite spectacular. Quite a few boats out to see them including the immaculate Puff.

Sorry I didn't get close enough to get a photo of the Dragon.

What is with all the dramatics over the re enactment of the Endeavor??it is not the first time Endeavor has done this voyage. I have a photo on the wall of the Endeavour sailing down the east coast back in the 90s.

 The Endeavour replica has visited New Zealand in the past, with the most extensive visit being an 11-port tour in summer 1995-96. Most recently the ship visited New Zealand on the return leg of a second world voyage, this was in March 2005. The ship has not been to New Zealand since ownership of the vessel moved from the HM Bark Endeavour Foundation to the Australian National Maritime Museum in April 2005.

I was going to sail out and follow it in on December 6th but I read somewhere the arrival was ‘invite only’...unsure how they’ll police that...

Because it's 250 years to the day that Cook landed in Whitianga and met with the Maoris. It's just a bonus that Endeavour was here to mark it

“What is with all the dramatics over the re enactment of the Endeavor?”

For the descendants of the original inhabitants of Aotearoa the Endeavour replica represents a symbol of murder rape and the spread of disease.
A harbinger to the loss of lands subjugation and disenfranchisement in their papatuanuku.

Had to larf that it is Jenny Shipley heading up Tuia 250 as she is so well experienced in the dark art of ripping off others re the Mainzeal debacle.

Did she ever pay that fine.

Forget the political crap. I still enjoyed the day and the crew from the Waka certainly seemed to be enjoying themselves in Whitianga last night.
