By day Phillipa Durkin works at Te Papa as a conservator, prolonging the life of some of the country's most precious artifacts.

In her spare time, the Wellingtonian dotes over classic yachts such as Lizzie and her beloved Loloma. Phillipa's inspiring story features in the December issue of Boating but for a sneak peak, don't miss Gareth Cooke's stunning Weekend Warriors video HERE.

The December issue also has more for the lovers of classic boating, including a tribute to the late Frank Pelin and Harold Kidd's Vintage Viewpoint column on the mystery yacht Seaward.
