Message in a bottle arrives in NZ

A message in a bottle has arrived at Ninety Mile Beach after months in the ocean.

The bottle contains a message from a Greek sailor who has never been to New Zealand.

The bottle was found by fisherman Ken Fergusson. He looked through the green glass and made out some phone numbers on a business card. After calling the number he was put through to a Greek household.

It turns out that Captain Karavolos put the card into the bottle, put the cork back on, and turfed it out to sea about a year ago, during a sailing trip between Australia and China.

Captain Karavolos believes the date and location of the bottle’s send-off may be faintly written on the back of the business card.
