Less than a month after the launch of the Tupapa: Our Stand, Our Story project, the sail has been stolen from the stand on the top of Titirangi/Kaiti Hill.
The sail was taken last Tuesday.
A Gisborne District Council spokeswoman said the sail would be replaced by the contractor soon, under warranty.
“As with any vandalism, prevention will be in promoting vigilance with the community to report to police any suspicious behaviour,” she said.
The contractor will be looking at the fixings to see if they can be secured better, she said.
