This has been something we have been wanting to do for a long time now, and we are so pleased to have this opportunity to tour the HMNZS Wellington while it is in the dock for routine maintenance.
Due to the maintenance aspect, PPE gear will be required. This includes steel cap boots, high viz vest or jacket, long pants and sleeves and safety goggles.
This will start at 2pm, meeting at the Devonport Naval Base.
There will also be an after-event in Devonport at the ... for those who want to stay.
Numbers are limited to 12 people, members receive the first pick, followed by guests of members. We will also set up a waitlist, just in case, there are any late minute cancellations.
We sincerely thank everyone who has worked on organising this event and look forward to seeing you there.
