Rainbow Warrior Delayed
Auckland Friday 7th May: The Rainbow Warrior's arrival into Auckland has been delayed by a couple of days.
The Rainbow Warrior was enroute from Melbourne to Auckland when a crew member became ill. The Warrior had to divert to Lord Howe Island to drop off the crew member.
The Rainbow Warrior which was due to arrive on the 12th May will now arrive at the earliest on Friday 14th May. The planned welcome ceremony will go ahead on the Warrior's arrival.
The Greenpeace flagship the Rainbow Warrior will be visiting Auckland - fresh from dramatic activities in Australia - as part of a trans-Tasman campaign to keep our food and environment free of genetically engineered crops.
Exact time and schedule will be known early next week and another advisory will be sent. Public Open Days are still planned for the weekend of 15 and 16 May from 10am - 4pm each day.
