Rainbow Warrior docks in CT
The Rainbow Warrior was funded by donations and is destined to head for Durban next.
CAPE TOWN - Thousands of Capetonians were lucky enough to tour a Greenpeace vessel on Sunday.
The Rainbow Warrior, the third of its kind, is docked in Cape Town Harbour.
The green and white ship attracted huge crowds to the Victoria and Albert Waterfront and has been on its maiden voyage since early 2011.
This is the first time any Rainbow Warrior has visited Africa.
The first Rainbow Warrior was bombed in 1985, the second, an old fishing trawler, was donated last year.
Greenpeace Africa's Nick Mokobane explains the ship is specifically made for them, as it runs purely on wind power, making it environmentally friendly.
It was funded by donations and is destined to leave Cape Town for Durban in five days.
Mokobane said once in KwaZulu-Natal, the plans for future operations will be revealed.
