Tall ships welcomed to Northland

Sailors of tall ships from the Netherlands, Britain and Australia were formally welcomed to New Zealand on Saturday with a powhiri featuring a series of challenges along the Russell waterfront, waiata, spine-tingling haka and speeches. The ships have just completed a race from Sydney; next they head to Auckland for a Labour weekend Tall Ships Festival. Photos by Peter de Graaf.
