Locals will have the opportunity to tour HMNZS Aotearoa on Monday, April 26, between 11am and 2.30pm. Tours will start and end at the east gate, on Ocean View Pde near the New Plymouth Yacht Club. Buses will take groups to and from the vessel, and people are asked to wear sensible, covered footwear.

The open day was originally planned for Saturday but has been changed because of sea conditions.
