'He's not there, Mum. He's fallen overboard.'

What started as an exciting challenge turns into a nightmare when a gale unexpectedly blows up during the night race to Kawau Island. Sam and her mother suddenly find themselves in charge of their yacht with a dangerous task ahead of them.

Will Sam be able to save her family?

"The arrival of Night Race to Kawau into the world of New Zealand's children's books was a significant event. Here was a novel written with such power and authority, such authenticity and credibility that it ranked as one of the finest first novels by a New Zealand writer." (Fitzgibbon, Beneath Southern Skies)


Winner of Gaelyn Gordon Award for a Much-Loved Book 2005.

Author Biography

Tessa Duder began to write for young people when the youngest of her four daughters went to school. Nine novels since 1982, including Night Race to Kawau, Jellybean, Mercury Beach, Hot Mail (with William Taylor) and the four award-winning books of the Alex quartet, have established her as one of New Zealand's leading writers. The Tiggie Tompson Show, the first of a planned trilogy about the redoubtable Tiggie, won the 2000 New Zealand Post award for Senior Fiction. Among her awards since 1987 are three Children's Book of the Year prizes, three Esther Glen Medals, several Creative New Zealand writing bursaries, the 1991 University of Waikato Writing Fellowship, and in 1996, the New Zealand Children's Book Foundation's Margaret Mahy Medal.
