Rebecca Hayter will be at Takaka Library on Wednesday 12 May, 2 – 3 pm, talking about her new book Wild Seas to Greenland: a Sailing Adventure with Ocean Racer Ross Field.

In 2017 yachting journalist Rebecca Hayter sailed from the UK with veteran ocean racer Ross Field on a quest to sail the Northwest Passage. For Rebecca, it was a personal journey as a sailor and a voyage of research as a journalist. She knew many sailors would love to share this rare opportunity – to learn from Ross Field’s 35 years of ocean racing as he refitted a tired, 20-year-old aluminium yacht and skippered his boat across the North Atlantic.

Rebecca has written about yachting in New Zealand for nearly 30 years . She was editor of Boating New Zealand for twelve and a half years , and her many journalism and writing awards include 2020 Columnist/Blogger of the Year. Her most recent assignment was writing daily updates for over the American’s Cup.

Wild Seas to Greenland will be available for sale at this event for $39.95 cash (or you can be invoiced). The event is free and everyone is welcome.
