Kōrero: Ngā heke i te Wai Nui

Ngā rohe mutunga e toru kia taea

Ngā rohe mutunga e toru kia taea

He āwhio ngā haerenga onamata atu i Poronihia i te Rawhiti ki nga wāhi pāmamao – nā nga hau, e kore e taea te hoki tika ki te wahi i wehe tuatahi ai koe. Me tūtū ngā waka ki ngā moutere kei te ara moana, me hoki rānei mā ngā ara he rerekē ō ratou āhuarangi ki ērā i haerea i te tīmatanga o te haere. Ko ngā heke uaua rawa atu, ko ngā heke whakamutunga. Ki te haere ki Hawaii, ki Te Pito o te Henua rānei, me haere whakawhiti i te hau. Ko Aotearoa kei te tonga rā anō. Ko ngā hau tuauru o tēnei pito ko ngā hau matua (westerlies).
