Gisborne first stop for Tuia 250 flotilla

Gisborne will be the first port of call in October for a flotilla of waka and historical tall ships on a voyage around New Zealand to mark the 250th anniversary since the first encounters between Maori and Europeans in October 1769.
Tuia 250 co-chair Dame Jenny Shipley said this morning a replica of Captain James Cook’s Endeavour would be included in the Tuia Encounters 250 event. However, a spokeswoman for the Ministry of Culture and Heritage said this was still being finalised.
