On the morning of 10 April, 1968, Cyclone Giselle hit Wellington, New Zealand, at the same time as another storm which had driven up the West Coast of the South Island from Antarctica. The two storms met creating a single storm just as the inter-island ferry Wahine was crossing Cook Strait with 610 passengers and 123 crew. A huge wave pushed the Wahine off course and in line with Barrett Reef, and the captain was unable to turn back on course. 51 people died in the ensuing disaster.
