Skipper and classic yacht expert Iain Valentine talks about how the evolution of sail and boat-building technology influenced the lives and livelihood of pioneering families living in and around the Whangaparaoa Peninsula.

Iain will show images and explain how the classic yachts such as Frances were the secret of success for early families.

The yachts were a vital link for the early families from their farms to markets and the saleyards of Auckland.
