Tall Ships race

From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 2:09 pm on 15 October 2013

The Spirit of New Zealand is among seven Tall Ships currently sailing from Sydney to the Bay of Islands, in the first ever trans-Tasman Tall Ships race. She's racing against Tall Ships from the UK, the Netherlands, Canada and Australia. They left Sydney on Thursday at 4pm New Zealand time, and the race is expected to take seven to 10 days. On board is the Spirit of Adventure Trust's deputy chair, the writer Tessa Duder, and she talks with Jim Mora by satellite phone.
