Wahine disaster

A visual essay

The TEV Wahine sank in April 1968 when it was driven onto Barrett’s reef at the entrance to Wellington harbour, New Zealand, during cyclone Giselle. Further details on the disaster are available on Wikipedia and on the NZ National Maritime Museum website. Captain Robertson’s godson also has a website with information about Wahine’s captain and the disaster.
