MARLBOROUGH BOOK FESTIVAL

Retired Marlborough veterinarian and author Peter Jerram discusses his compelling memoir The Team that Hit the Rocks with Nikki Macdonald.

In April 1968, the inter-island passenger ferry Wahine hit Barrett Reef at the entrance to Wellington Harbour in New Zealand’s worst recorded storm. Six and a half hours later the ship heeled over and sank, with the eventual loss of 53 lives. Just a few weeks into his first year at university, Peter was on board with his Lincoln College cricket team mates. He has written a riveting first hand account and investigated the tragedy to ask serious questions of the Court of Inquiry that followed.
