Kōrero: Te whakatere waka

Club Med, contemporary double-hulled yacht (1 o 2)

Club Med, he waka hēra o ēnei rā

Mō tētahi wā roa a Grant Dalton e reihi waka ana, kotahi anake te takere. Nāwai ā, ka tīmata tana reihi waka hourua nui kia huri taiāwhio i te ao, kāore he pekapeka. Anei a ia me ngā tauira mō te waka Club Med, i tauirahia mai i ngā waka hourua o Te Moananui-a-Kiwa. I pūmau ngā kaihōpara tōmua pērā i a Kuki ki te whakaaro i āta nōhia Te Moananui-a-Kiwa e te tangata. I kite rātou i te tere me te pai o ngā waka hourua me ngā waka ama. Nō te whakatauritenga atu, he pōturi, he tikoki ngā kaipuke Pākehā. E ai ki te rongo kōrero a Kuki, he ‘pai te waka hourua mō ngā haerenga pāmamao’.
