Rum and shanties
The New Zealand Maritime Museum will celebrate Folk Festival Fortnight with a night of shanties and rum on the high seas. The museum will take its heritage vessel the Ted Ashby out on April 6 for a Sea Shanties and Rum Tasting Harbour Sail. The 90-minute sail around the Waitemata Harbour will see guests entertained by singers The Maritime Crew as they belt out traditional songs and shanties of the sea. The Ted Ashby will depart from the Maritime Museum at 3.30pm, returning at 5pm. Adults are $35 and bookings are recommended. Call 373 0800 to book.
