The new Rainbow Warrior is coming to Auckland and low- ering her gangplank for free tours on board. The sailing ship will be docked at Princes Wharf, opposite the Maritime Museum on Saturday and Sunday so people of all ages can explore one of the most environmentally-friendly modern ships ever made, Greenpeace says. Greenpeace crew will be on deck to show people around, and there will be face painting and other surp- rises for the kids. Many Kiwis donated to the building of the new Rain- bow Warrior so it s great to be able to show people what they made possible and give them a really fun family day out, said Bunny McDiar- mid, executive director of Greenpeace New Zealand. At nearly 58 metres long, the new Rainbow Warrior can sleep 32 people and cut through waves at 15 knots. The ship was build from donations given worldwide, including more than $300,000 from Kiwis to fund the Rapid Response room, where activists and divers get ready to board inflatab- les to investigate or take action against environ- mental ills. The Rainbow Warrior has been the heart and soul of Greenpeace global cam- paigning for over 30 years. She s been raided, rammed, shot at and bombed but the spirit of the Rainbow War- rior is as strong as ever, Bunny says. New Zealanders have a connection to The Rainbow Warrior not only because of her namesake s past, but also of what she represents for our future, Bunny says. Her design is innovative, intelligent and stylish. She maximises efficiency and minimises pollution of our environment.
