HMS Protector in Lyttelton

I got an invitation to celebrate the arrival of the HMS Protector because of my current position as chair of the Antarctic Society, Canterbury Branch. It was a very nice atmosphere  when the ship was welcomed by traditional Maori ceremonies.

We were then invited on board the ship. Beverages and canapes were served on the bridge and it was a catch up with all people related to Antarctic business and interests.

Tours were offered through the ship what was very informative. The event was closed with a naval ceremony after almost 2.5 hours.

The  ship is accessible for the public on 24th January 2016, 10am – 2pm, what is a wonderful opportunity for the people of Lyttelton and Christchurch.
