A woman left dazed by the side of the road after a car smash is trying to trace the good samaritans who helped her. Holly Ewens-Smith from Blenheim was driving home last Monday when she collided with another car. The 26-year-old gym manager went into shock and was left with bruising and a sprained spine. People who witnessed the crash at the intersection of Old Renwick and Murphy Roads in Blenheim were quick to help and now she’d like to find the mystery rescuers. “I was really taken aback by the group of people that dropped everything to help on the scene and even to just sit with me and help me to catch my breath and calm down. “It would be great to be able to say thank you and even if they don’t want to come forward, I hope they read this and know how thankful I am,” she says.

Holly says in the moments immediately after the crash she tried to open the driver’s door but found herself stuck. An unknown man came to help and prised the door open, she says. “I was quite panicked and tried to get out, but the door was jammed. This fella came from another car and he got the door open, got me out and sat me down. “There was a lovely lady who sat with her arm around me and got me talking about other unrelated things until the ambulance arrived.

“My mum’s a paramedic but she was away on a course otherwise she would have heard it over the radio. “I was very well looked after, there was also a young man who helped while we waited for the ambulance, I think he’s a rugby medic,” she says. Holly, who moved to Blenheim from Auckland three years ago, says her car was written off in the accident. She has had to take a week off work but hopes to be fit enough to return this week. “The adrenaline stopped me feeling any pain for ages but when it wore off it was pretty painful and I’m still on pain killers, though

Accidents involving someone turning at an intersection are the most common in the region. Holly says that she will drive again and is on the look-out for a new car. “I don’t feel anyone is really to blame, it’s just one of those things that happen,” she says.

Council splash out on big-budget baubles Matt Brown Reporter

matt@marlboroughmedia.co.nz

Christmas cheer comes at a cost - as council staff reveal the price of decorations in the Blenheim CBD. The 20-metre tall Christmas tree was purchased in late 2015. But four years on the decorations have spurred council to spend more than $10,000 on new decorations. Marlborough District Council reserves and amenities officer Robert Hutchinson says the region’s famously sunny weather is to blame. “The display had lost its bite,” he says. The tree, baubles and lights cost council more than $50,000 in 2015. Robert says the red and gold baubles didn’t last as long as anticipated. “The baubles should last five years,” he says. “The red faded quite badly; the weather has these effects.” Staff were hard at work last week putting the tree up in the town’s central business district where it got plenty of attention. Blenheim man Simon Green says he liked the decorations. “It is what it is,” he says.

Community leader inspires generations Paula Hulburt Editor

paula@marlboroughmedia.co.nz

Her distinctive voice rings out clear, each note dropping into the silence of a spellbound audience. Nan Kahu Chadwick is an inspiration to generations of people, her life devoted to the practice and preservation of te ao Māori. Now the talented te reo Māori speaker, kapa haka teacher, composer and choreographer has just been appointed as a Marlborough Living Cultural Treasure. Nan says everything she has done has been to honour her tupuna. “I like to help people, help their journey be a good journey.” Nan joins eight other Living Cultural Treasures. Marlborough Museum ambassador Toni Gillan says a panel decided her contribution to the

community deserved the recognition. “It has always been my personal pleasure to contact the recipient of the award and tell them the news in person,” Toni says. “This year was no different, and to see the surprise and delight on Nan’s face was very humbling. “The Marlborough Living Treasure award is a wonderful way to acknowledge the extremely creative people in our community.” Born Kahumarianatakutaioomoana Chadwick in Otukopiri (Koroniti) on the Whanganui River, Nan grew up speaking te reo. Nan came to Blenheim in 1979, taking on a variety of teaching roles before joining Bohally Intermediate School’s bilingual unit as a kaiarahi i te reo Maori teacher in 1987. Many students under Nan’s tuition began to discover for the

introduction. Thousands of Marlborough students lucky enough to at-

tend Bohally in the 30 years Nan taught there were exposed to te reo and regular kapa haka performances. “It wasn’t just the students – their parents and grandparents became involved in discovering who they are and what they did in their time. So many magic moments,” Nan says. As a tutor and composer for Te Rerenga o Te Ra Flight Across the Heavens kapa haka group, Nan has led the group at performances on many civic occasions in Marlborough. Te Rerenga o Te Ra has also represented Marlborough and New Zealand overseas, travelling to Germany in 2011, Norfolk Island 2013, to France and Malaysia in 2015, and Britain in 2017.  Nan continues to inspire future generations to speak te reo and learn about their place in te ao Maori.

A Picton man has become one of the first in the world to donate to an HIV-positive sperm bank. Damien Rule-Neal, 45, was diagnosed with HIV just under 20-years-ago and says stigma and ignorance is still rife. The sperm bank, the first of its kind in the world, launched last week in New Zealand hoping to reduce the stigma still felt by those living with the virus. Called Sperm Positive, the facility was initiated by the New Zealand AIDS Foundation (NZAF), Positive Women Inc and Body Positive. Three donors have already signed up that have a 'consistently undetectable viral load'. "I had to leave a job after disclosing to my manager I was positive because of the bullying once I'd informed her. That was really sad because that was in the health and disability sector," Damien says.

News Town hall’s show of strength: Ward Town Hall is set for a $564,440 makeover to repair and strengthen it. Following the 2016 Kaikoura earthquake, the hall, built in 1912, sustained significant structural damage. Councillors agreed on Wednesday to help fund repairs. About two thirds of the repair funds will come from the Council’s Emergency Events Reserve. Wairau-Awatere Ward Councillor Cynthia Brooks said it was great news. “The community lost their pub, museum and water storage - and its hall was going to be closed unless this money was found.” Residents happy: Marlborough District Council’s latest independent survey of residents indicates that overall satisfaction remains high for most of its services. Chair of the Planning, Finance and Community Committee Councillor Mark Peters says that almost all Marlborough District Council services scores are higher than New Zealand council benchmarks, with many significantly higher. “Our overall performance trend has been on an upward path over the last 10 years, with a slight dip this year to 74 per cent from 78 per cent in 2018, he says.

Operation Gifts for Kids Matt Brown

Hundreds of children who might otherwise miss out on a gift this Christmas are set to benefit from the Salvation Army’s toy appeal. Staff have launched a public appeal for toys in a bid to spread Christmas cheer to those less fortunate. More than 200 families are expected to receive brand new toys for their children as a part of the Christian organisation’s Operation Gifts for Kids. Salvation Army social worker Bridget Nolan says the gifts go to families that are “doing it tough” over the holidays. “The concept is a relief for families from the stresses of Christmas,” Bridget says. “Things are coming up – uniforms, school camps, and they’re expensive.” She says the support at the “stressful” time of year enables families to pay a bill or afford food instead of shelling out for pricey presents. “And every child deserves a brand-new toy,” she says. Eligible families are referred to the Salvation Army from other regional social services. Salvation Army officer Deane Goldsack says their unique token

Though the toy appeal has been running for several years, Bridget introduced a token system, inspired by the Dunedin Salvation Army and modified for Marlborough three years ago. The system enables parents or care-givers to personally choose gifts for their children from a room specially decorated for the occasion. Each family gets a free family

game and a free book, then, tokens are issued to the family. Expensive toys cost more tokens. Bridget says last year, 109 families and about 230 kids received presents through the operation. And the number is expected to grow this year. “The public and business supporters have been very generous in the past,” Bridget says. “We’d like to say thank you to the past supporters in previous years and hope they can support again.”

Donations of new toys for children can be dropped to the Salvation Army Family Store, on Redwood Street, or the Salvation Army Centre on the corner of George and Henry Streets. Financial donations for toys are also accepted. This year, the Salvation Army are the recipients of the Kmart Wishing Tree – toys donated to the wishing tree will also go towards Operation Gifts for Kids. To donate or for more information, call Bridget on 035780990.

Fizz falls flat amid wine safety recall Glass damage to a 2018 batch of Villa Maria wine has seen bottles of the popular festive fizz recalled for safety reasons. Company bosses at Villa Maria Estate are recalling a 2018 batch of sparkling rosé after glass damage on the lip of the bottles. While the damage is thought to be limited to just some bottles, the entire batch is being recalled. Villa Maria CEO Justin Liddell says no other products have been effected. “Although this issue only impacts a very small proportion of the unique bottles we use for our Villa Maria New Zealand Lightly Sparkling rosé 2018, customer safety and wellbeing are paramount so we are recalling the entire batch,” he says. The damage has been discovered under the screw cap on some bottles of the 750mL Villa Maria New Zealand Lightly Sparkling 2018 rosé product. The damage is on rosé batch number: VM101L9238. “If you have purchased a 750mL bottle of Villa Maria New Zealand Lightly Sparkling 2018 Rosé since August 2019 we ask that you please refrain from

opening the bottle and return the product to the retailer for a full refund,” Villa Maria says in a statement. “You can locate the batch number at the bottom of the bottle which has been stamped onto the glass.” “Villa Maria’s reputation as New Zealand’s most awarded winery is founded on the highest quality standards from the vines to the bottle,” says Justin. The product was available from supermarket chains, various liquor outlets, Villa Maria Cellar Doors in Marlborough, Auckland and the Hawke’s Bay. The wine was also sold at the Villa Maria wine sale which took place at the Auckland and Hawke’s Bay cellar doors. A small quantity was sent to Tonga and Fiji. Villa Maria expect to launch their 2019 vintage of Villa Maria New Zealand Lightly Sparkling rosé early in December, and apologised for any inconvenience to consumers in the meantime. For more information on the recall the public can contact the Villa Maria Customer Service team directly on 0800 900 013 or contactus@ villamaria.co.nz.

Council controversy over plan to ban drivers from beaches Chloe Ranford Local Democracy Reporter

A controversial bylaw which may ban drivers from beaches along a 45-kilometre stretch of coastline has been given the go ahead by council. Marlborough District Council staff agreed earlier this week to draw up a bylaw banning drivers from the Awatere River mouth to the Ure River mouth. The move comes after concerned residents implored council to take action to protect threatened indigenous species. But the plan has “staggered” some of those who routinely use some of the access roads and beaches. Council strategic planner Sarah Edmonds says increased access was hampering the recovery of the environment. “There will be long-term damage if vehicle access continues. In a report presented to council’s planning, finance and communities committee on Thursday, Sarah says the council has a “duty” to control vehicle access. The report proposed cutting off beach access to vehicles, from Redwood Pass to Ward, and in-

troducing a speed limit at Marfells Beach and Ward Beach, where boats could still be launched. The bylaw would also restrict vehicles on unformed roads. Marlborough Angling and Surfcasting Club president David Miller says he was “staggered” the bylaw was approved. “I can’t believe it. They can’t close beaches off like that.” David, who fished along the stretch at least 10 times a year, was also part of a group that cycled the coastline. “Recently we cycled to the lighthouse and had a picnic. We were on the sand, so we were no damage to the environment.” He had previously attended a meeting in Ward where members had discussed their concerns about quad bikes running over dotterel birds and their nests, before suggesting a vehicle ban. “I said all beaches are legally public roads and that the council didn’t have the authority to restrict access to a beach like that.” He would encourage the club’s 70 members to object during the bylaw’s consultation period, which had not yet been given a set date, he says.

Increased access to some east coast beaches is threatening the burgeon recovery of the quake damaged landscape. Photo: Matt Brown. A fisherman, who did not want to be named, said someone would end up “drowning or getting hurt” trying to access areas on their boat close to reefs, which were previously accessible on a quad. “The new bylaw means you can only launch small boats from, say, Marfells Beach, but it’s rough

there at the best of times.” Forest and Bird top of the south regional manager Debs Martin said the news was received with excitment, but resignation. “We know we’ll have another summer of damage along the shore in the interim, while the bylaw is being drafted.” Councillor Cynthia Brooks says

it was a “significant day” for the council. “There’s a lot of history around vehicle use on the coastline, but it’s not the coastline it was three years ago, and it’s under threat. “It’s one of the few wildernesses left in this country.”

End of era as nurses’ home demo begins Paula Hulburt Editor

paula@marlboroughmedia.co.nz

Demolition work has begun on one of Blenheim’s oldest heritage buildings, spelling the end of an era for the local landmark. Workers moved in on the derelict Wairau nurses’ home last week to start stripping out the interior. Specialists will then be called in to remove a significant amount of potentially dangerous asbestos discovered inside the 93-year-old building. The red-bricked facility in the grounds of Wairau Hospital has lain empty for almost six years, costing health bosses around $30,000 per annum to keep the building fenced off. Nelson Marlborough Health finance performance and facilities general manager Eric Sinclair says work is expected to be finished by March next year. Around $1million has been earmarked to pay for the work. “Demotion of the Nurses Home at Wairau will take place over the next few months. “Initially a soft demolition will occur - which is the removal of things like carpets, doors, toilets, pipes and roofing iron. After that the bigger machines come to site to deconstruct the larger ele-

Concerns over asbestos and seismic rating issues meant it was deemed too expensive to address accessibility and fire safety problems. Nelson Marlborough District Health Board staff decided demolition was ultimately a better use of public health funds. The building’s foundation stone

will be kept and installed with other historic foundation stones. There is nothing else nothing else considered salvageable, Eric says. “There are no other features considered worth saving on the house as the building was utilitarian in its original design. “From it’s opening in 1926 the building provided a significant home and workplace for many

staff who hold fond memories and interesting stories.” There are several options being considered for the site when it is cleared. The land could potentially be used for expansion in the future. “A number of options are being considered but there is no urgency to determine future use. “It is important to note that the

location of the old nurses’ home was determined as the zone where any future expansion of Wairau Hospital would occur when the site master planning work was completed prior to the rebuild of the Wairau hospital 10 years ago. “So, any use of the location will need to be cognisant of this master planning,” Eric says.

The Marlborough District Council has agreed to draw up a bylaw banning drivers from a 45-kilometre stretch of coast, from the Awatere River mouth to the Ure River mouth, after concerns from residents. Maybe a new public road should be enforced through the farmers property to allow the traditional pastime of gathering food to continue. Since they can somehow just close a public road (beach) when ever they want. You know to protect the birds ! Jared Hall Is that even legal? James Spence Stewart Murray Wilson was jailed for two years and four months last November for the historical rapes of two women and a young girl.

Not exactly a charm offensive Dear Ed, Last week the new Taylor Pass Road community was subjected to an incessant barrage of noisy aircraft flying from Omaka Aerodrome, above the housing area. Certainly cars operating with excessive noise are liable to prosecution. One wonders whether the same might apply to low flying aircraft? The volume from the planes would easily trump the noisiest car. Last week, and coming to a crescendo on Thursday we were assaulted by all day noise from aeroplanes flying round and round and round with no apparent aim. The flight path took them directly above housing, all day.

We are residents here. The “we were here first” mentality is no longer a defence for doing as you like. Change has happened and therefore some compromise is required. How would it be if flight paths were altered to take the noise above less populated areas where you would piss off far fewer people! Last week’s performance produced thoughts of “I wonder if this assault is a deliberate act”? Come on council. You happily opened up the Boulevard Park on Taylor subdivision. How about applying some protection for residents against inconsiderate actions emanating from the aerodrome. Iain Galloway

TUESDAY 3 December 2019

The weather is getting warmer, the holidays are creeping up on us and we are all itching to get out and about this summer. Before we do there are a few things to tick off the list and one of the main things is making sure that our transportation is road worthy. Not only could it mean delays if something goes wrong, and a hefty bill to pay, we also want to make sure our passengers are safe on our travels. To help make it easier to find a quality professional service, Marlborough Weekly has spoken with various businesses about how they can help you this summer.

Rangers to the rescue

Daredevil antics Sunday saw hundreds of Marlburians began their December in a festive fashion at the Tua Marina Christmas Fair. The popular fair proved to be a big attraction for people from across the region who gathered to make the most of the festive fun. From reindeer lollipops to a Santa’s grotto, there was plenty to keep people of all ages entertained - including a Moto X demonstration, an interactive display from rural firefighters, a petting zoo and a performance from local gymnasts and dancers. The yearly fair raises vital funds for the school. Photo: Matt Brown.

Cell coverage planned for remote blackspots New cell towers are set to end communication blackspots in some of Marlborough’s most isolated areas. Marlborough Sounds residents will soon join the 21st century as plans for 16 cell towers providing broadband internet move forward. And communications giants will have to think outside the box to build and power the new towers in the challenging terrain. The government-funded Rural Connectivity Group hopes to bring 4G broadband and mobile cell sites to the most remote parts of the region. As part of the Rural Broadband Initiative 2 and the Mobile Black Spots programmes, 16 ten-metre tall towers will

be up and running by 2022. Communications and engagement head Caitlin Metz says there is a “huge” amount of work being done. She says the lack of mains power at some sites require alternative energy solutions, such as solar power. “It’s technically very challenging.” Seven sites are planned for the Marlborough Sounds and four up the Wairau Valley. “The people and communities we’ve been talking to have been very keen to receive the services. “It’s exciting and we’re really pleased to be working with the community, the council and the service providers.” Spark, Vodafone and 2de-

Caitlin says the 4G network uses 700Mhz spectrum, a low power, long distance frequency best suited to rural landscape. With voice transmitted via

the 4G network, she says it allows the group to build smaller facilities that only require three panel antennas and each site can be designed to its specific location.. A traditional tower is at least 20 metres tall and can have up to 24 panels antennas. “The size of the infrastructure is more conducive to the remote rural areas we’re going in to,” Caitlin says. “If you have a smaller pole, meaning less concrete, less foundation. “You don’t need to have big concrete trucks to turn up, you don’t need the big access tracks…it all down scales from a build perspective, which is important when you consider the difficult terrain we will be building in.”

Extra council staff will be out over summer, doubling the region’s rangers. Marlborough District Council got a funding boost of $183,610 to appoint two more rangers over the busy summer period, taking the total to four. Rangers will visit camp sites and other spots to ensure things are running smoothly. And it’s hoped more staff on the ground will also help put an end to any anti-social behaviour as they encourage people to be responsible campers. Council’s reserves and amenities manager Jane Tito says there has been a big increase in the number of visitors camping at Marlborough’s responsible camping sites – up from 7,000 in 2016 to 12,000 in 2018. “On top of the funding for additional rangers, council was also successful in getting funds of $25,000 from central Government’s Tourism Infrastructure Fund for a feasibility study on a long-term, sustainable approach to the management of responsible camping sites in Marlborough,” Jane says. The study will also include consultation with iwi, the camping and motorhome associations and other interested groups. Council’s Freedom Camping Bylaw 2012 was last reviewed in 2016 and the new review is scheduled to commence in July 2020, following the results of the study.

Young swimmer inspired to make a difference Peter Jones Reporter

peter@marlboroughmedia.co.nz

Inspiration is often found in the most unlikely places. However, in George Glover’s case, it came in an entirely appropriate setting. After hearing champion free diver William Trubridge speak at the Inspire Foundation Marlborough grants evening in April, the 16-year-old Marlborough Boys’ College year 12 student decided it was time he did something about the issues he felt strongly about. So, the seeds of what George has termed “The Black Dog Swim” were sown. From December 30 until January 8, George plans to swim the length of Queen Charlotte Sound and back again, his mission being to highlight youth mental health and raise funds for I AM HOPE. This youth and community-focused support group, run by The Key to Life Charity Trust, promotes positive attitudinal societal change in schools and communities, while funding private care and counselling for young people stuck-in-the-mud on waiting lists. Last year alone, 137 New Zealand young people died by suicide and it is estimated 3500 tried to take their own lives. “There are two degrees of separation in New Zealand,” George says. “But there is only one de-

gree of separation between mental health and suicide. “Unfortunately, youth suffering from mental health issues can’t always get the help when they need it, with some having to wait up to six months to receive counselling.” George hopes to raise at least $50,000 from his marathon swim, providing all-important resources for I AM HOPE and enabling those that are suffering to get help quickly. “The I AM HOPE fund, which provides mental health counselling for all New Zealanders between the ages of 13 and 25, has run dry over the last nine months, so more funds are urgently needed,” said George. The Inspire evening, coupled with William’s words and his “dive” across Cook Strait to raise awareness of the plight of Hector and Maui dolphins, triggered a positive response in the young man who will be Marlborough Boys’ College head boy in 2020. “I went home and I through, ‘I want to do something’ … William had another take with his Cook Strait effort, so I thought ‘I like swimming … what can I do?’ “And it just evolved from there.” The Queen Charlotte swim has never been done before, one of the primary reasons George chose to do it, pushing himself well outside his personal comfort zone. Although George is a competitive

Photo: Supplied. pool swimmer, one of the best in the Nelson Marlborough region for the past four years and an age-group silver medallist in the 1500m freestyle at the latest NZ short course champs, he has limited experience of long-distance ocean swimming. He has competed in the annual 2.3km White’s Bay to Rarangi swim, setting the quickest time earlier this year, and has been training regularly with an ocean swim group in Picton. However, he reckons his longest previous ocean swim was around 12km, a far cry from what lies ahead. The Black Dog Swim is estimat-

ed to cover 123km (66 nautical miles). George will hop into the water at Anakiwa, swim around to Picton then up the south side of the Sound to East Bay before crossing over the northern side for the trip back to Anakiwa. He expects to spend around six hours per day in the water for 10 days, with the longest leg covering about 18km. George is well aware it is a bold step into the unknown. “I feel I’ll never be fully prepared for it. “It is going to be 10 days in the sea and I don’t feel that I can simulate that … but I reckon it is doable

and I have a great support crew to help me get there.” He has enlisted the help of local identities Ross Anderson and Norm Wilson, who have vast experience of the area, plus talked mental preparation with local endurance cyclist Craig Harper whose 10-day Ride Across America has certain parallels, and Dave Edgar, a vastly-experienced river, lake and ocean swimmer. Although sharing his time with a string of school and environmental organisations, George is training around 10km each day in the pool, plus grabbing ocean swims whenever possible. His preparation is well-planned but the teenager admits he has some nerves as the start time approaches. “Physically yes, but more so mentally. It’s just being in the water for six hours a day, especially on days four, five and six when it really starts to hurt … but I will push through it and it will all go well in the end. “Completing the swim is possible, but I know I am going to have to put in a lot of hard work to make it happen.” George’s Give A Little link is: https://givealittle.co.nz/fundraiser/ black-dog-swim-for-nz-youthmental-health Here is also the link to the Instagram account:  https://instagram. com/blackdogswim He will have regular updates on both Instagram and Facebook pages.

Saunders beats world class duo Peter Jones Reporter

peter@marlboroughmedia.co.nz

Marlborough cyclist Callum Saunders overcame both the reigning Olympic champion and the current world champion to take out the kierin title on day three of the World Cup track cycling meet in Hong Kong on Sunday morning [NZ time]. Saunders got the better of Olympic gold medallist Jason Kenny and world champion Matthijs Buchli in a thrilling final. Saunders has had limited opportunities for the powerful Kiwi sprint team but made the most of them in Hong Kong. Under sprint coach Rene Wolff, Saunders only got to ride in the individual events with the team sprint trio returning to Cambridge to prepare for their home World Cup later this week. Against many of the world’s highest-rated sprinters, including 11 of the world’s top 20-ranked keirin riders, Saunders was placed third in his heat, sending him into a winner-take-all repechage, where he held off a strong group to win and progress to the semifinal. There he drew the No 1 spot to slot in behind the derny. Despite

Photo: Supplied. being swamped early when the pace went on he recovered to edge his way into third in a bunch sprint to claim the last place in the final. He again drew the No 1 slot for the decider with Kenny behind. This proved crucial because, when the Englishman opened up

his sprint to push to the lead with two and a half laps remaining, his speed was such that the Marlborough rider maintained his place in the trail. Saunders held off the threat by world No 2-ranked Malaysian Mohd Awang on his outside and in the final straight the New

Zealander pushed past Kenny to win by the width of a wheel, with world champion Buchli flying home for third. Saunders said immediately after the race, “It’s my first-ever time lining up at a World Cup so I just went in with an open mind … didn’t set myself any goals, just

went for it. “I can’t put into words how much it means.” The next leg of the Track Cycling World Cup series takes place in Cambridge from December 6-8, followed by the December 13-15 leg in Brisbane and the January 24-26 round in Canada.

Emily emerges victorious Sport

Netball recognition: Marlborough netballer Haze Tepuia has been named in the New Zealand men’s under-20 team for the forthcoming season. Haze enjoyed a breakthrough season in the Marlborough premier grade competition, the eagle-eyed shooter helping Tokomaru to the 2019 title.

Peter Jones Emily Marfell has “lost count” of how many Marlborough Women’s Triathlons she has contested, but she will no doubt remember the 2019 version with special affection. After several previous podium finishes the Marlborough doctor ran, cycled and swam her way to her first victory in Sunday’s event, which was sponsored by The Sisters and attended by 170 competitors. Asked to recall how many times she has lined up for the iconic race, Emily struggled for the exact figure. “I’ve been trying for far too long … I’ve lost count, I put seven on my entry form but I’m not sure. “I’ve never been in to win really, it’s a case of being here and showing up. “But it was nice to string it all together today and not do anything silly.” A slick transition from run to bike helped Emily get her nose in front early on the cycle leg. “Everything went right [in transition] … I didn’t trip over or anything but the swim was so tough … I am a terrible swimmer and you just have no oxygen left when you jump in the pool. I had to breathe every stroke, it was just a case of survival.” Emily finished in 51 minutes 22.4 seconds, three minutes nine seconds clear of secondplaced Lexi Timpson. The surprise package of the event was 11-year-old Neve McKenzie who led the field into transition after a stunning run leg along the banks of the Taylor River. She finished third overall

The event, New Zealand’s oldest women-only triathlon, was contested for the 37th time. Unlike traditional triathlons, it was run in reverse order; starting with a run/walk, leading into a cycle and finishing with a short swim. It comprised a 5km run, mainly along the Taylor River bank, followed by a 14km cycle leg up to the landfill on Taylor Pass Road and finished with a 100m swim at the Aquatic Centre.

At the end of a gruelling day of high-class sevens action the Tasman men’s team were left in a three-way tie at the top of the table. Tasman, Canterbury and Otago all scored four wins and one loss from their five games, with the Cantabrians taking the title virtue of a points differential one point better than Tasman, the defending national champs. The top five teams earned a trip to the nationals. The women’s section culminated in a final, with Tasman taking on Canterbury for the title.

Gifford skippers NZ crew to victory in Australia Peter Jones Alastair Gifford, the sailing nominee at the recent Marlborough Sports Awards, underlined his ability at international level with a notable triumph in Australia late last month. Gifford, who is based in Auckland, skippered a Royal New Zealand Yacht Squadron (RNZYS) team to victory in the Royal Prince Alfred Yacht Club’s (RPAYC) Harken International Youth Match Racing Championship near Sydney. He and his team of Henry Angus, Chester Duffett, Hunter Gardyne and Seb Lardies successfully defending the title won by fellow club member Jordon Stevenson last year. In the final, Gifford’s crew defeated the world-ranked No. 20

team from Wales, skippered by Matthew Whitfield from Penarth Yacht Club. Gifford pocketed the $1200 winner’s cheque, with $800 going to Wales as runner-up. Resilience was required. Gifford’s team had to recover from being two down in the final, but the Kiwis fought back to win the next three matches in the best-of-five series, to take the title. Gifford said the standard of competition was high making it “a pretty hard-fought event”. “We knew it was going to be tight competition, so we’re very happy with how we went, especially coming up against the Welsh who are number 20 in the world,” added Gifford, whose crew went in world-ranked 117. “We had a little bit of practice before we came here, but it’s the first time we’ve raced together,”

Alastair Gifford, left, with the victorious Kiwi crew. Photo: RPAYC. he said. Throughout the event, the Kiwi crew lost only four matches, two in the round robin, and two in the final. In the semi-finals, they took on the RPAYC all-female team

skippered by Juliet Costanzo and beat them 3-0, while Whitfield’s Welsh team sailed against the other RPAYC team skippered by Alistair Read. The Welsh team won 3-1.

Tom Spithill, the RPAYC’s head coach, commented: “The regatta went very smoothly. The breeze got up to 22 knots on the first day, and really tested everyone’s boat handling. It was light to moderate for the rest; a good all-round package. It showed who can sail well in all conditions.” Ten international teams took part in the 27th Harken International Youth Match Racing Championship. Clubs represented were RPAYC, Royal Sydney Yacht Squadron, Darwin Sailing Club, the Cruising Yacht Club of Australia, the Royal Port Nicholson Yacht Club in New Zealand and Ireland’s Royal Irish Yacht Club. The competition is raced in Elliot 7 boats of equal standard, making sailing skills paramount. Sailors must be under-23 and crews can field 4-5 members.

Brittle batting lets TPL sides down

Peter Jones

Both of Marlborough’s teams in the Tasman Premier League cricket competition lost to Nelson rivals on Saturday – by the same margin. The table-topping Dolphins crashed to their first defeat of the year, going down to Nelson College while the Falcons lost to Wanderers-Motueka, both visiting sides triumphing by 10 runs. The Dolphins success this season has been based around a steady bowling attack and reliable top-order batting. On Saturday they got half the equation right, dismissing Nelson College for just 127 in the 44th over, but then they came up short with the bat. Ben Blackman with 3-11 and Cory Golding who bagged 3-20, were the pick of the home side’s attack. For College, opener Flynn Day contributing a patient 28 while No 8 batsman Patrick Wilson belted 41 hugely-valuable runs before being last man out. In reply, Dolphins were well placed at 85-3 before key batsman Prabodha Arthavidu was removed for 28. Four wickets fell with the score at 113 as College paceman Jarrod McKay took over. Jack Holdaway played the anchor role with an unbeaten 39 from 56 balls but McKay grabbed four wickets at the other end to wrap up proceedings. Earlier, Kaleb McKay picked up the key wickets of Rikki Bovey and Luke Frankland cheaply to set

College on their way. Falcons’ match followed a similar scenario, although their run chase was more testing. Wanderers-Motueka scored 192 from 49.5 overs, Dave Leonard, (43), Max Mannering (29), and Alex Brogan (38) showing the way with the bat. Chris Turkington was in fine form with the ball, picking up 4-35 from 9.5 overs, while Matt Stretch and Cameron Collins bagged a brace apiece to set up a winning opportunity. The home side’s run chase began promisingly, Tarin Mason and Joel Lavender taking the score to 62 before Mason departed. Collins joined forces with Lavender to push the score onto 121 in the 28th over but when Lavender went for 68 from 93 there was little further resistance, apart from 25 from Stretch, as the last six wickets fell cheaply. Andrew Beatson (3-25) Jackson Harris (2-26) and Mannering (2-31) were the main wicket-takers. T20 begins On Friday night the 2019-20 Marlborough senior Twenty/20 competition kicked off with two games at Horton Park. Wairau Valley took on Marlborough Boys’ College on the No 1 ground while Renwick met Celtic on the No 3 wicket. Defending champions Wairau had a bye. Both games were one-sided affairs, Valley and Renwick comfortably cantering to victory,

the former by eight wickets and the latter by 59 runs. MBC batted first on the main ground and came up well short of a competitive total. They were dismissed in the 18th over for just 87, Cameron Collins top-scoring with an unbeaten 19. Tim Petrie contributed 15 as the students came and went with monotonous regularity. Chirag Jagota was the pick of the Valley bowlers, claiming 4-19 from his four overs. Valley wasted little time in reply, hitting out from the outset. Tim Abraham smashed 18 from seven balls then, when he went, the father-and-son duo of Greg and Matthew Stretch made short work of the chase, Greg ending unbeaten on 29 from 30 balls, Matthew 38 from 21. Spinner Alec Dodson with two wickets for 18 was the most dangerous of the MBC bowlers. Renwick did better with the bat, setting a Celtic a target of 130 from their 20 overs. They lost seven wickets along the way, with Rikki Bovey (18 from 16) Luke Frankland (28/40) and Prabodha Arthavidu (50/43) top scoring. Matt Morley (318), Jaden Adams (2-36) and Ben Blackman (2-15) claimed the wickets to fall. Celtic’s reply faltered early and just got worse. They were eventually dismissed for 71 in the 18th over, 26 runs from Reuben Molnar being their top score. Keirin Gaudin (2-9) Piers Landon-Lane (2-22) and Bovey (2-18) were the main wickettakers.
