Today marks the 10th anniversary of the death of Sir Peter Blake. Killed by robbers who boarded his boat in the Amazon River.



"Our small nation went into shock. Peter Blake was a living legend. As an outstanding sailor, he had brought great honour and fame to New Zealand. His death was unthinkable." Helen Clark at Sir Peter Blake's memorial service at the Auckland Domain. A decade on and his loss is still felt.
