No safe harbour, by David Hill (1942-)
No safe harbour is a story based on the true event of the Wahine disaster.
The main characters are Stuart and his twin sister Sandra. The captain sailed in to the harbour 201 times in the past and the 201st time was the time that disaster struck during a horrific storm that hit Wellington. The 15 year old twins were sailing back from Christchurch . They fought, like twins can do – but when it came to survival they stuck together. It was amazing story of how strangers and family support each other. READ IT.
