August 2009 - IPV Visits Dunedin
HMNZS HAWEA (Lt Grant Judson, RNZN) made her inaugural visit to Dunedin 26-31 August. The ship conducted a number of guided tours throughout her stay in port, including two on her first night in for Naval Reserve personel from HMNZS TOROA and Sea Cadets from TS WAIREKA. The ship was open to the public on the Saturday, with 1300 people attending. The visit elicited very favourable comment from all who toured the ship and those fortunate to sea ride up from Bluff on her day of entry.
