The Wairarapa coast is treacherous and has claimed its fair share of ships. From the loss of the first Pakeha vessel, the whaling barque David in 1841, there have been many other shipwrecks. While some were recovered and would live to sail another day, others were not so fortunate. The Lost Wrecks of Wairarapa tells the story of 78 vessels that found out just how dangerous this part of the country can be.
