All Aboard Thursday 6 July

Explore like Sir Peter Blake!

Students have the opportunity to explore Sir Peter Blake’s legendary schooner and talk to the crew about the science and life on board.

Tara, formerly Sir Peter Blake’s vessel Seamaster, returns to New Zealand on Saturday July 1 for the first time since the death of the Kiwi yachtsman and environmentalist.

While berthed in Auckland, Tara Expeditions Foundation, the Sir Peter Blake Trust and Auckland Council are inviting New Zealanders to a public outdoor photo and video exhibition, with a focus on oceans.

On Thursday 6 July our Edgewater Satellite Class students will go for an hour long tour on board Tara.

Sir Peter called Seamaster an “extraordinary vessel, built to go anywhere there is 1.5 to 2 meters of water.” Sir Peter and his crew had started a five-year journey on Seamaster as part of blakexpeditions when he was killed in 2001. His mission was to visit ecologically sensitive parts of the planet “to make a difference” with a focus on water. Tara continues to focus on oceans, science and education. Since 2003 the schooner has travelled 300,000 kilometers across the world’s oceans. They have completed 10 expeditions to study and understand the impacts of climate and ecological changes on the ocean.
