Rena grounding – Lancaster Kayaking Can’t Get Docs


Daina Shipping v Te Runanga O Ngati Awa
Justice Woodhouse refuses Mr Lancaster’s attempt to get docs from Rena owners so he can pursue damages to his kayak hiring business.

Apparently tourists don’t like kayaking in oil.

Lots of international conventions limit liability of shipping owners.

Thanks Justice Woodhouse.

We wouldn’t want shipping to ground to a halt, so to speak, if they actually had to pay for the damage they cause.
