Sir Peter Blake's legacy continues 10 years after his murder, as young environmentalists prepare themselves for a voyage to the Kermadec Islands.
At a ceremony held last night at the spot on Auckland's waterfront where Sir Peter returned triumphant after successfully defending the 2000 America's Cup, his widow Pippa, Lady Blake, and the Governor-General, Sir Jerry Mateparae, announced the expedition.
The Young Blake Expedition 11-day voyage next August to New Zealand's remote northern Kermadec Islands on HMNZS Canterbury will be an adventure for 30 New Zealand secondary school students.
The expedition will be led by the Sir Peter Blake Trust in association with the Ministry for the Environment, the Royal New Zealand Navy, Department of Conservation, Pew Environment Group, Experiencing Marine Reserves and LEARNZ.
