Homecoming for Sir Peter Blake's boat

Spirit of Adventure Trust News - Homecoming for Sir Peter Blake's boat

Sir Peter set out on the 36-metre icebreaker, then known as Seamaster, on a five-year expedition exploring the world’s waterways in 2000. The odyssey was cut short when, a year in, he was shot dead by pirates in the Amazon. He was 53 years old.

Tara made its way back into Auckland’s Viaduct Harbour on Saturday afternoon, halfway through a two-year voyage studying coral reefs in the Pacific Ocean. It was met by a welcome flotilla, including Sir Peter’s Sir Peter Blake round-the-world boat Steinlager 2 and Spirit of New Zealand.
