Fleet sails at last

6:14 am on 20 April 2011

Members of the Pacific Voyagers Fleet are relieved to be at sea after days of delays.

Five double-hulled fibreglass canoes sailed from the Auckland Viaduct harbour on Tuesday, after a delay to avoid the weekend's bad weather

Te Matau-a-Maui kaihautu Frank Kawe told Waatea News that two more vaka will join the fleet in French Polynesia before they sail on to Hawaii and the west coast of the United States.
