Cook Strait ferries from Owhiro Bay, Wellington 24 April 2005
'Awatere' (left), approaching Wellington, and the 'Bluebridge' departing. An hour after this photograph was taken the 'Bluebridge' was unable to enter Tory Channel and spent some time hove to. On its return voyage later in the day 'Awatere' suffered an engine failure in very rough conditions. A day to remember for the Cook Strait ferries.
