To commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Wahine disaster, the Wahine 50 Trust has organised a day of public events in Wellington in Shed 6, Queens Wharf, Wellington.
Find out from today’s search and rescue experts how best to prepare for disaster on land and sea … and how to join them as a volunteer – over a cup of tea served by the Salvation Army, who with others in the community provided the Wahine survivors with dry clothing, warm drinks and food, and where needed, a bed for the night.
