I te tau 1999 ka rere te waka hourua a Te Au-o-Tonga i Rarotonga ki Aotearoa. I whai rātou i ngā tohutohu o te whānau mārama. E toru rā anō ngā hoe urungi o te waka, e 10 mita te roa o ia hoe. Ko tētahi hoe he mea mau tonu, i nanao ngā kaihoe ki ērā hoe – he mahi uaua te whakahaere i te urungi mēnā he kaha te hau, kei te tere ake rānei te waka i te 12 noti (22 kiromita mō ia haora).
