Details:New Zealand Gazette and Wellington Spectator 1st Dec 1841. Kaipara: We have been favoured by Captain Gill with the following practical sailing directions for Kiapara, where the Sophia Pate was totally lost a short time since. Captain Gill, who has been for many years in the coastal trade and for some considerable time a resident of New Zealand assures us that by following these directions the dangers of Kiapara will in a great degree be obviated.
