The extraordinary tale of the schooner Daring built in the thriving Mangawhai Estuary in 1863.
Marooned several years later on the west coast, lost and forgotten until another extraordinary event, a storm in 2018 revealed her resting place on Muriwai Beach some 160 years later.
Hear the tale of the Daring’s remarkable rescue and restoration and how she finally came back ‘home’ to Mangawhai. Volunteers involved in her restoration will share her story.
