MARITIME MUSEUM and sail on the 'Ted Ashby'

The trip on 9 February went ahead without a hitch. Many of the 15 members enjoyed a coffee and wander round the museum before the actual sail. We dodged a couple of light showers and were able to sail up harbour around past the Sugar works and back under the harbour bridge. The maritime volunteers and some of our members hauled up the sails to enjoy a good trip around the harbour on a perfect sailing day.


On 2 March 18 people attended the presentations at the planetarium and everyone appears to have enjoyed them very much. Initially we were shown some amazing images of galaxies, planets and stars in a slide show and video. Then we moved to the planetarium, looking at the night skies over Auckland and looking at some constellations. A very worthwhile trip.


This was a very popular event, so well subscribed that we were able to have two groups - 40 people in total. An amazing place to visit, and I'm sure everyone enjoyed the experience, even though one or two were a bit apprehensive about the walk through the pitch black sensory passage.
