Wow! This weather reminds me of building my first Kayak in the third form. It was a wood working class project, cutting out plywood shapes to support the Kaihikatea stringers, stretching the canvas and finishing with top quality painting (left over house paint, lead based no doubt). I can still remember the fun of exploring in her. Then the realization came that paddling with a mate would be more fun. Back into Mr. Thomas wood working class to turn her into a double. From an early age most of us want to be adventurers. Kids in our neighbourhood climb trees, ride bikes, play hide and seek and kayaking is opening up more adventures. Like learning to ride a bike, kayaking takes focus, bravery and daring. The resultant feeling of achievement is life changing. Those who try it develop the confidence to tackle new challenges.

a memorial service for Sir Ed spoke of meeting or working with him. One attendee recounted a large commotion in an Indian international airport. It was Sir Ed pushing a wheelchair bound climber through the red tape of International Air Travel. The poor fellow was in a bad way after an attempt on a mountain. A man of action, for himself and for others in need, Sir Ed made sure he was looked after on his journey home. This summer two young Aussies made it across the ditch, and Justine Curgenven paddled solo around the South Island. Some would say that while the Aussie duo were mad to attempt such a thing, good planning made success possible. Well I know that no amount of good planning would entice me to try my luck, but don’t we admire them for the courage to give it a go.

I imagine that this year’s Speight’s Coast to Coast participants will also be exhilarated by the life changing experience of finishing each leg of this amazing race. And they may well say, like Sir Ed, “We knocked the bastard off”

With long hot days still to come there’ll be many more adventures. One can be yours. But don’t rely on luck. Make sure you plan when you follow the tradition set by our great Kiwi explorer, Sir Edmund Hillary, in another life changing experience.

How can I get faster and more powerful on the water? Part 2: Train on the water So, now that you have all raced to the gym and cranked out a few weights, grown some muscles and increased your strength and power, you can put some of that strength to good use and increase your speed on the water. Parachutes, speed sleds, power harnesses, bullet belts, weighted vests, bungees, buckets, sound like something out of a bad infomercial. With the correct guidance and knowledge, you can learn the appropriate application of these acceleration training tools for on water training. Sleds have been used for years in running based sport. They, or other weighted devices, are designed to increase the force athletes must produce to increase acceleration. In kayaking the ‘sled’ effect is provided by a bungee around the hull or by dragging a bucket. A research formula suggests that sled dragging doesn’t improve top speed but increasing acceleration has been overlooked. Sport science studies suggested that increased strength and power, increases speed. Many experts consider that heavy sled towing requires body position adjustment which potentially changes one’s running technique. This may spoil performance. I think this can be over emphasised and when used in moderation, technique will not suffer. However, if it is a mainstay of your programme, or you are a 50kg lightweight trying to tow a bucket before you’ve established decent technique, then good luck! In kayak training it seems that an appropriate load (device) applied to the boat could lead to power and speed gains. Research shows that combining sport specific power training with traditional weight training has the best power outcome. Two devices which work best for kayakers are bungees, with or without tennis balls attached, and small buckets. If you are just starting out or you keep getting dropped on the start line, the following tips may help you to find your aggressive side which has been hiding under your bed with the Abflex machine you bought all those years ago. Pick up a bungee at your local hardware store. Drill some holes through the tennis balls and thread them through the bungee. The bungee goes on the boat just in front of the cockpit or directly behind it, and the tennis balls, depending on how much resistance you want to add, go under the boat. You still want to pull the boat through the water whilst maintaining decent technique, so if you feel like you are going nowhere, take off a ball or two. If you only had a bungee on in the first place, I can’t help you, get back in the gym!! The stronger you are, or get, the more balls you add. Here is a sample session you can perform 1-2 times a week: • • • • •

6-9 starts (roughly 20 double strokes) 2-3 without bungee/tennis balls 2-3 with bungee/tennis balls 2-3 without bungee/tennis balls 3 minutes rest between each start

Kayakers to the rescue! It was reported (Taupo Times, date unknown) that a duckling was rescued by the team at Canoe & Kayak Taupo. Staff members at the Huka Lodge unsuccessfully attempted to rescue the distressed duckling from on shore. “The river being deep and current swift, we resorted to making an SOS call to Freddy at Canoe & Kayak Taupo in Spa Road. Within 20 minutes, kayak guide Andrew Loveridge arrived with his client on his way to take her on a guided trip down the Waikato.” The duckling was rescued and knotted trace from inside its mouth and wrapped around its body was removed.

To progress, add more starts or add more resistance. If you have a GPS, monitor your speed. Buckets, creating very high resistance,are used solely by sprint kayakers to increase starting strength and power. Small buckets have a hole cut in the bottom and a rope is ‘scientifically attached’ to it to position the bucket about 5m astern. You probably wonder how kayaks maintain efficient technique whilst towing a bucket. Answer: They can’t, but since the focus is only on the first few strokes, there is no time to affect anything. A sample session, best performed no more than once a week; is outlined below. • • • •

4-8 rolling starts (roughly 10 double strokes) 4-5 with buckets 2-3 without buckets On 4 minutes (every start is done on the fourth minute)

To progress, add more bucket starts or perform every second one from standing still. If you have a GPS, monitor your speed. Enjoy!

Lone Kayaker airlifted to safety. A report in the Taupo Times ( January 8, 2008), of a lone paddler getting into trouble has produced this response from one of our readers. The incident occurred at Kuratau Hydro lake, where she had intended paddling about 4 kilometres to the river mouth at Lake Taupo. On confronting some rapids she tried to walk them, but her kayak filled with water and became pinned against rocks. She abandoned it and tried to make her way to her starting point through thick bush. Reported missing, her kayak was spotted at about 7pm by the Search & Rescue helicopter. The 50 year old woman was ill-prepared (“… wearing only jandals, shorts and a singlet, and her kayak did not have a spray skirt.”) She had a medical condition that would not allow a night Time and again newspapers carry stories of kayakers lost in the bush, ill equipped, injured or worse. Accidents do happen, but having the skills to deal with them is vital. It’s amazing that Mrs Schmidt (Taupo Times article Jan 8 page 3) embarked on a solo river journey which involved rapids, especially given her medical condition, in a sit in kayak, without a spray skirt, helmet and most importantly the skills to negotiate the river safely. Sit in kayaks also need air bags to stop them filling up with water, once full up, they can hold as much as a ton of water and easily get pinned on the rocks with little hope of getting free. Luckily for her, in this instance, she was able to exit the kayak before this happened. Again, luckily after getting lost in the bush, she was found by rescue services. I am not trying to preach or reprimand anyone, just raise awareness of the fact people can get into serious problems on rivers, very quickly! In fact most of the river drownings that are kayaking related are on Grade 1 and 2 (like the Waikato River above Huka Falls). Basic stuff but paddled by the inexperienced, can be hazardous. With professional tuition you can become a much safer paddler and have a greater understanding of river dynamics, hazards, rescue techniques, equipment and its uses, risks involved and group management. So before you set off on an adventure, talk to someone who knows. Your local Kayaking centre can advise on these matters and course dates. Hopefully the Rescue Services will not be needed to spend time, and possibly their own lives, on saving yours. Steve

Robbie Banks - Instructor & Kayak guide While the Aussie dudes were achieving the near impossible, kayaking from Austrailia to New Zealand, a lone kayaker was quietly enjoying peace & tranquillity, kayaking solo for 210 km of pristine coastline, down the Coromandel, from Fletchers Bay to Waihi Beach. Even in the height of Christmas holidays she was able to enjoy the sweet satisfaction of remote camping away from the crowds.

Club trips run every weekend through Canoe & Kayak, and private tours are available on request. Trips are organized to suit all budgets and fitness levels, from relaxed local paddles to overnight trips.

The Coromandel is Robbie’s favourite piece of coastline. Huge towering cliffs and areas with no road access keep it special & secluded. Its beautiful white sandy beaches make it ‘hard to beat’.

Robbie’s extensive knowledge of camping, lodges and exclusive luxury holiday packages, combined with her kayaking experience, will guarantee you an experience you will treasure. Enquiries can be made through Canoe and Kayak Canoe & Kayak Bay of Plenty Ph 07-5747415

The glorious weather made it perfect for a trip that had been two years in the planning. Her goal was to achieve the distance, with time each day to enjoy the scenery & special remote camp locations. She intended spending 2 days at Slipper Island over New Years Eve. Unlike James Castrission & Justin Jones who had no opportunity to stretch their legs on terra firma, Robbie spent many afternoons exploring bays & bushwalks. She was even invited to dinner by a friendly family whose land adjoined her camping spot under a huge Pohutuakawa tree. People can be so friendly & hospitable be when they meet a solo kayaker! She is now spending time with family and running the skills courses for Canoe & Kayak B.O.P. She hopes to share the fantastic kayaking she knows in the Bay of Plenty, the lakes & the Coromandel.

Reality check on the Motu Smooth - that was the Motu, smooth like freshly ironed chinos.

Aaron in his element

It wasn’t the river itself that was so polished but rather the events that clicked into place to make it an adventure, where the high took at least three days to wear off. The flow was perfect, the weather sound, the company new and fun, the camps dry, and the rapids exciting enough to be just right. The Motu was a sweet highway right to the very end. Sweet, sweet, sweet. But it was at the end that we unfortunately came across some very ugly road kill. Returning to river running after a four year absence is fascinating because small forgotten flavours are so evident. (In a previous life I did a bit of kayaking). Things like whirlpools forming round pulled paddles, the silence of deep water and the funny sense that the bank is running backwards from your stable position. It was a gratifying return and raft captain fantastic, Nick Brown, was the one to thank. His control of a relatively novice crew was superb and allowed us to flow for three days with minimal effort.

became a real nature escapade. Day one camp was at the entry to the first of two gorges. Because the paddling so far was straight forward the party had plenty of energy for impromptu distractions. These included the high of an intelligence quiz and an even greater high of throwing rocks to make ‘duck farts’ in the river water. No matter the activities the camp was dry and comfortable and combined with the higher river flow and good weather there was a feeling that we were being looked after.

Raft Group

Or were we being lulled into a illusory impression of well-being? Day two was definitely adventurous. Rapids such as Boulder, Helicopter and Double Staircase kept both rafters and kayakers entertained. The second half of the Staircase was run twice by those in plastic and was probably the only white water that touched grade IV. Most likely due to the flow the white water required little scouting and caused few problems - not a bad thing on an isolated river journey. Other meanings involving the word Motu are severed, cut, and wounded. A fitting description for our finale. Our fine weather highway continued on day 3. Smooth sailing mixed in with the odd bit of white water, goat, blue duck and bush. The only times there were muck-ups in control was when another crew member was at the helm. Horgs (Mike Horgan) found our only shingle bank, Marita enjoyed bouncing off rocks and the author had a habit of finding backwater eddies. The kayakers, Pete, Ross and Aaron were our playful scouts, much like Apollo and Starbuck ranging from the Battlestar Galactica, dodging black holes and searching for stellar waves. A meaning for Motu is ‘cut off, isolated’ - a fitting description of this East Cape river which flows to the Bay of Plenty. Isolation was also the perfect description of the mood for a group wanting to slip out of society and reappear near the Pacific. The trip is a journey of experiences far more involved than just running rapids. After the drop-in near Motu village the river run was a heady mix of emerald water, thick green bush, and deep gorges. Whio were a welcome companion on many of the bends. Actually getting complacent about seeing so many of the ducks would be a heart-warming feeling for any conservationist. Add goats, deer and pigs that fall into the river to the bird life and the trip

New Zealand was playing France in a quarterfinal in Cardiff and when Grant, our more than amicable host and shuttle driver, asked if we “wanted to know the bad news”, well, I felt cut, wounded and severed.

Peter showing us how it’s done

And this author is sad to say at that moment the All Blacks inglorious exit from the World Cup overshadowed the past three days’ wilderness journey. The emerald water, green bush and blue ducks faded with the loss. It was the inconvenient road kill on what had been a ironed chino smooth highway. But a perogative of the author is reflection and the opportunity to make amends. Motu could also mean healer or reality check. As a nation mourned I remembered my Motu journey and quickly discounted any rugby disappointment. The emerald water, green bush and blue ducks made me realise it was so much better to have been among the Motu‘s jewels than watching the game on the box.

“The Catayak is I get some strange looks when I put this boat on the car. “Two kayaks sitting upside down on the roof?” Then they spot the rudder in between. Questions come flying after that. I did not build the ‘catayak’ for attention seeking. Over two years ago however I built this boat in my mind when I had just been introduced to the technique of strip building kayaks. As a Joiner and lover of boats, I knew I must build my own kayak. I had every intention of building the regular shaped form that kayakers have come to know well & love, but an idea popped into my head one day just as I was about to rig up my first strong back with typical shaped forms. “Why not a double hulled kayak that you sit between with your ass over the water?” I had never seen one (maybe there’s a reason for that I thought?) so I set about designing this craft on the laptop. After two years, 6months of which were winter labour, the ‘catayak’ (or katayak) was born. At an extremely light 15kgs, just over 4 metres long and 750mm wide the dimensions are pretty normal. Not as big or heavy as some people thought it was going to be. Explaining my concept to close friends & relatives their first question was always “But how will you paddle it?” They thought I was going to build two normal sized hulls which would be kind of difficult to paddle conventionally. This craft is a breeze to paddle. I use a West Greenland paddle made from cedar which I just love for its lightness and Inuit authenticity. It works well with this design. The hulls were strip built using 6mm cedar for the bottom & stained pine on the deck. Both hulls are fibre glassed inside & out. Two main support brackets hold the two hulls parallel. The rigging is very simple. 50mm nylon belt (similar to seatbelt material) is laced & crossed from hull to hull to support not only myself but the 6mm high density foam which makes the sitting & storage platforms. The rudder controls come straight up the middle underneath all this material. then poke up to the

foot pedal steering column. Most of the other fittings like the two rear sealed hatches and seat were bought from the local Burnsco & Kayak shop. All in all the rigging took three weeks to complete. The final cost of all materials including timber & fibreglass was just over $1000. That’s not including labour of course but who cares when you have a dream to fulfil. First day out was a little nerve racking. Last thing I wanted was an audience as I sunk into the water or tipped out on the maiden voyage. Thankfully this did not occur, in fact it worked great. Tracking is excellent, not too stiff. Stability is beyond belief and with or without the rudder, steering is a breeze. You get a little wet from the paddle but who doesn’t on a sit-on? Since that day I was and still am wrapped! I have taken the Catayak out fishing using the two rod holders and hope to install a sail just for added fun on those windy days. The real joy though comes from the stability especially for average paddlers like me who sometimes find ‘chop’ and ‘wind’ a real tiring affair. Next winter I plan on building a 5m version with a few more improvements. If anyone is interested in building such a craft then please don’t hesitate to contact me.

International Outdoor Recreation and Education Conference, Christchurch, January 21-24, 2008 My attitude to providing the academics with information when I was asked to help out with surveys has been “I haven’t got time to do that.” But having seen the work they do, I realise the importance of assisting their research, vital for you and me in the future.

In January I accompanied Peter Townend to a Conference titled ‘The Confluence’ held at Lincoln University, Christchurch.

Much time was spent on sustainability. We discussed our roll in protecting places from our visits. As Kayakers we must ‘do our bit’, this is right down to grass roots; recycling our waste from the home and office. On our trips into the outdoors remove rubbish that we come across and cause no damage/ disruption.

Organized by Outdoors New Zealand (ONZ), there were speakers from fourteen countries including New Zealand, Denmark, Canada, USA, Taiwan, Singapore and Australia, bringing words of wisdom from their specialist fields.

One specific, we need to stop Didymo, by spreading the word and doing what is required. As individuals we lead others. Let’s make sure it’s down the road that preserves and protects the environment.

It was an opportunity for everyone connected with the outdoors, including kayakers, to get together. Academics, Outdoor-Instructors, Tour Operators and Business folk contributed.

The Australian ‘Leave no trace’ initiative would be good to adopt. (See; www.lnt.org/)

The subjects included ‘the effects of our presence on the environment’ and ‘how paddling effects family life’. The huge amount of research in New Zealand and worldwide amazed me. Fundamental to kayaking, we considered Outdoor Instructors Qualifications that ONZ seeks to align. It is intended to bring cohesion to our industry which currently has many different ways to become a qualified Instructor or guide and avoid current confusion. A major subject of vital concern to all kayakers is the degradation of our environment. A case history illustrates this. The Colorado River is now such popular destination to paddle that you must book 10 years in advance. If you miss your slot due to weather, or anything else, you lose your place. We in New Zealand might wish to govern our important waterways a week or two in advance. To do this we need information about past use, trends and intentions.

Its 7 Principles are • Plan Ahead and Prepare • Travel and Camp on Durable Surfaces • Dispose of Waste Properly • Leave What You Find • Minimise Campfire Impacts • Respect Wildlife • Be Considerate of Your Hosts and Other Visitors The 4-day conference, for which I am most thankful, was a huge learning curve for me, I would be very happy to hear from you at james@canoeandkayak. co.nz to tell you more. Thanks to Laura Adams, Garth Gulley and the whole team at Outdoors New Zealand for organising this world class event. James Fitness

Point 65 Kayak Review Point 65 kayaks are the latest addition to Canoe & Kayaks range of Touring and Sea Kayaks. Point 65 kayaks benefit from a quality manufacturer and an awesome design team. They produce kayaks in RM Plastic and composite. Our staff, Arron Wilson (C&K Hawkes Bay), Stephen Taylor (C&K Manukau) and James Fitness(NZ Kayak Magazine) tested the Swedish kayaks and this is what they thought‌.

Point 65 Nemo - RRP $1099.00 The Nemo is the smallest, lightest touring kayak in the Point 65 range. Being so light it is easy to load to the car and carry to the water. The build quality feels solid with a tough rigid hull that will stand the test of time. The cockpit arrangement is spacious and comfortable. Arron pictured below fitted comfortably in the Nemo. For a short touring kayak the Nemo was surprisingly sleek, very manoeuvrable and light on the water. It is very stable and gives the paddler much confidence on the water. The Nemo has generous size rear storage hatch and deck elastics to hold kit that you need to reach. We feel it will make the perfect day touring kayak for lakes, estuary, and gentle coastal paddling.

Point 65 Five O Five - RRP $2299.00 The NZ market has been crying out for a 5 metre, fast and stable touring kayak and Point 65 have the answer with the Five O Five. We were so impressed when we paddled this kayak. The Five O Five has the perfect balance between stability and performance. It is user friendly and stable enough for a beginner but also has enough performance to satisfy the improving paddler looking to develop skill. It is perfect for day paddling or camping trips with loads of storage in the stern and bow. The Rudder system is superb, and easy to engage and control. The hull felt rigid through the water delivering great speed and durability. The cockpit is comfortable and will accommodate larger paddlers too. This kayak is for those looking to progress in touring or into the world of Sea kayaking. This is truly a lot of kayak for the money, offering comfort, performance, stability and superior build quality. An incredible touring

Plenty of performance to satisfy the improving paddler

Arran in the Nemo

Award Scheme The NZKI Award Scheme was formed in response to a growing need in the Kayaking Industry to have more people with Kayaking qualifications, to encourage more kayakers towards expanding their skills and knowledge and to continue to increase the safety of our sport.

The test team


It was great to be at the finish line at the 2008 Coast to Coast. To see Richard Usher finish so strong after what was a flawless day for him was fantastic but best of all to see a good friend of mine finish and many others cross the line with that same smile and satisfied look of joy and accomplishment plastered on their faces was just superb. At the time, the simple yet profound notion struck me that in order to finish you first have to start. So what have I done to start on my journey towards the Coast to Coast, 2009? Well I have been fortunate to have received my Ruahine Gladiator Kayak. Having paddled it now in a variety of environments from the calm waters of the Puhoi River to rougher waters in the Hauraki Gulf. I am in love. Averting imminent divorce, I cancelled the bedroom alterations to accommodate the 5.9m beauty and for now she resides in the garage. Obviously this may change depending on my wife’s behaviour over the next few months. In line with what you would expect from a “Lucy Lawless” type Gladiator she is reliable yet lively and possesses a good turn of speed. She provides a lot of space, which is great for comfort, and most importantly she is stable. A very important attribute for a novice/intermediate paddler. I have not been dumped by her yet. I do however await the chilly white waters of the Mohaka River in May when I start my Grade 2 certificate with Canoe & Kayak, Taupo. No doubt my time will come. General training is going well but with approximately 360 days to go the

motivation to adopt a stricter regime and hone up on nutrition is strong. I am in the process of finalising the intermediate goals and events that will step me up to the final goal of completing the Coast to Coast, 2009. Events such as the Rodney Coast to Coast, Round the Lake Cycle Race and Waimak Classic River Race will hopefully provide good stepping-stones. The Nike catch phrase of “Just do it” is my challenge to you. If you have made some New Years goals and are yet to implement them, then get started. Remember in order to finish you must first start. Profound isn’t it. All the best. Craig Pritchard

Regional Group Co-ordinator for the Northland/ Auckland Didymo/Freshwater pests Partners Group, Mark Geaney, is worried about the latest finds and is calling on the public to get vigilant and fight didymo.

“It is very bad news for the environment, the economy, and people who love to spend their leisure time in our pristine rivers and lakes.  We need our Check Clean Dry message to go out loud and clear to Kiwis and visitors to New Zealand alike.

“We know didymo is spread by human activity,’ he says.  “We are particularly keen to get our message out to people who use freshwater areas for their recreation.  Kayakers, trampers, boaties and anglers can all unwittingly spread didymo and we urge them to check, clean and dry their gear every time.” “The best way to protect against didymo is to ensure that absolutely anything that has been in contact with freshwater is decontaminated before it hits the next waterway.  Check gear and remove debris. Clean gear with a mild solution of detergent or household bleach and dry it thoroughly when moving between waterways” says Mark.  “If you can’t decontaminate your gear between waterways then you should dry to the touch and leave for an additional 48 hours before using in another waterway, or restrict use to a single waterway.” Microscopic live didymo cells hitchhike on tramping boots, waders, fishing lures, kayaks and tyres then jump off in new freshwater sites.  We can‘t see the cells, but they are there - and they can live in or on damp gear for weeks.  Didymo is an invasive freshwater alga that forms ugly, dense, fibrous mats in the water up to 12 cm thick. It can choke waterways and affect habitat

Didymo was first detected in New Zealand in 2004 in the Lower Waiau River in Southland.  Since then it’s spread at terrific speed, taking over many rivers in the South Island and threatening to travel north.  “It’s time for those of us who love getting out and enjoying our fresh waterways to get serious about slowing the spread of didymo in the South Island  - and let’s make darned sure that we keep it out of the North Island.  It really is in our hands to stop the spread of this pest,” says Mark. The Northland/Auckland partners group was formed in July 2007 and is made up of representatives from the Auckland Regional Council, Northland Regional Council, Department of Conservation, New Zealand Federation of Freshwater Anglers, Ministry of Fisheries, Fish and Game, Watercare Services Ltd, iwi, and other special interest groups. Funding is provided by MAF Biosecurity New Zealand as part of their ongoing work to manage the spread of didymo.

One Wet Sunday It was a wet Sunday afternoon, teaming down as only the Taranaki coastline can. Only one thing for it – a hot drink, snuggle down by the fire with a good book, maybe a snooze ….. Could be a Tui ad really, couldn’t it – yeah right! Let’s go paddling! I rang around my paddling buddies aka Bronnie and Mark (Julie was AWOL) .We met at the Waiwakaiho meeting of the waters to plan our assault. The river was running at a pumping 40 + cumecs but we felt quietly confident knowing the lower section to be well within our comfort zone. Then, what’s this? Emerging from the water, the ‘big boys’ of Taranaki kayaking arrived, having run the upper and middle section.

It took at least 100m (or was it 75) before I was staring at the rocks at the bottom of the river, head banging, arms flailing and majorly reconsidering the ‘cosy fire’ option! In an unskilled and inelegant roll or 3, I was up, to the sound of cheering (or was that surprise). I survived the next kilometre or so with various unusual grimaces and colourful language, passing empathetic looks to the other trip liabilities, my pals Bron and Mark. I stopped at the top of a particularly gruesome looking stretch of water with a really ominous feeling. Surely, this is the time to swallow my pride and portage.

We put in below Egmont village. Bronnie put on a brave face, but the message was loud and clear from her dilated pupils!

Tally ho! Off I went meekly and trustingly obeyed his every word and mirroring his every move….. Right into the bus eating, gi-normous, cavernous hole waiting with jaws wide open.

Mark less subtle, hissed at me in private “There are some seriously horrible gnarly things on this run. What are we doing?” Yes folks, at this point, I was really looking for an out. It failed to appear. Briefly I thought of turning to my supportive husband, Lester, for words of comfort, and then remembered the last time I admitted to blind terror

Like innocent little lemmings we sallied forth.

They convinced us that this stretch of water would be much more fun (?!) and even better, magnanimously offered to shepherd us down! How could we refuse? Believe me we tried. Each desperate to bail, but short of admitting to being the ‘girls blouses’ (which we actually are) our fate was sealed.

But no! I didn’t reckon on good ol’ Stevo. “Stick with me” he said. “I’ll see you right, trust me” (I really should have listened to my mothers advice about men with such lines!)

It wasn’t pretty. Thanks Steve!! Bronnie enjoyed the experience shortly after. Her rodeo moves were spectacularly entertaining and hey, it’s good to have company at times like this – we girls like to stick together don’t we Bronnie? (Lester reckons it was more of a mini eating hole


Hubby Lester at get in

but let’s not split hairs! )

By the time we reached the take out we were triumphant and bulletproof.

The next hour long debacle in reuniting chicks with boats was pretty epic including a MacGyver like climb down a vertical cliff face which if filmed would be a contender for the Banff film festival extreme climbing section.

Who us ,scared ??

Grade 4 hole, grade 6 rescue! We got back into our boats, despite some polite suggestions of a walkout from ever soothing hubby. I responded in confident style by immediately turning upside down in the next rapid. I rolled expertly, only to become pinned along with 2 other boats. Bronnie, of course (girl thing happening again) and Mark . 3 for 1!

Nah, we rocked! Legends in our own lunchboxes no less! It was suggested that maybe for our next trip we plaster neon pink stickers over the hulls of our boats with ‘other side up’ written on. Rude huh !! Heartfelt thanks to the awesome, supportive, forever encouraging and endlessly patient dream team that kept us safe – Steve, John, Aaron W Aaron F, Pete, Al and yes, Lester. You guys are our heroes!! When can we go again ‘cos count me in, I can’t wait!

The support crew were now becoming somewhat jaded, feeling they had not signed up for this mayhem (did I hear the term false advertising anyone?) I realised this was not a great situation to be in and was commenting such (whilst cleverly performing a self sustaining tail stand) to my comrades in arms, when I realized that Bronnie had deftly extricated herself and that I was talking to an empty green creek boat, once occupied by Mark …aaargh !! A ghost ship !! Seriously surreal ! Then I caught sight of the man in question bobbing not so merrily downstream with an ‘anyone seen Huka Falls?’ expression on his face. Very reassuring! Self esteem and ego were at an all time low. But, hey, we could only improve and the rest of the trip was surprisingly uneventful. We aced the quarry rapid, portaged the next section due to a 6th sense of self preservation. (We would have been fine eh guys!) Then we were sweet down on the home run. Amanda meets hole

The Aussie Rats

by Bronnie van Lith.

What an amazing day! What an amazing crowd! What an amazing paddle. I’m buzzing and it was all over a couple of amazing Australians! Our two Aussie Rats from across the ditch, Justin Jones & James Castrission, left Aussie on the 13th of November, to paddle the 2200km to New Zealand. I’m not one to sit in front of a computer for long, but I was absolutely glued to the ‘crossing the ditch’ web site in the weeks before that amazing landing in New Plymouth. I had to reschedule dropping my kids off in Tauranga several times as the Aussie boys distance to the new Plymouth shores grew shorter and dates and time of landing kept changing. I sure wasn’t going to miss this peace of history for anything! The morning finally came. The sun was shining, the sea was calm. It was a Sunday and the paddling conditions for the boys couldn’t have been better. Armed with a compass, GPS, a cell phone and the promise from Patrick Brothers to text us the boys’ co ordinates every 20 mins, all 24 of us fellow kayakers set off from the quiet Nga Mutu Harbour in New Plymouth at 7am. We had strict instructions not to touch the boys, their kayak or give anything to them, otherwise their journey would be deemed as assisted and therefore failed. We paddled a double Waka Ama and a couple of sit on top fishing kayaks. There was also a white water paddler, who had never been in the open sea before. We decided it might be a bit tough to expect him to keep up in his little play boat and so had a double sea kayak waiting for him. An Aussie mate said he had quite a lot of experience in the open sea, but it soon became obvious that the open sea in Australia is not like the west coast of New Zealand’s, even in calm conditions. Most of us however, were locals from the Yakity Yak Kayak club in New Plymouth and nothing could dampen our spirits as we headed out to the horizon, slower paddlers went first. In the open sea one of us was not coping. He made the swop into a double kayak, causing some delay. Pete thought that the rest of the group had gone on ahead on the wrong bearing. Checking his compass he became convinced and blew a whistle and made the paddle signal to stop. But they were well out of hearing and continued to paddle towards the horizon. Then we realized that they had the radios, while we had the cell phone. It looked like there would only be 3 kayaks meeting our Aussie boys today! That would disappoint the public and the media, who were flying overhead, taking pictures. So we fast paddled to catch up to everyone before they went Still looking strong and putting on a healthy pace of 5.5 kph

too far. Fortunately our clubbies are trained to stick together, and they stopped to wait for us. Just as well because my arms were fast becoming like lead! The rest of the trip passed with friendly chatter and funny stories. Patrick stuck to his word and sent us the co ordinates. An Auckland friend Phil was awesome on the GPS. A small speck, straight ahead of us on the horizon, became bigger and it became our Aussie friends. Our pace quickened with the sighting and idle chatter turned to our greeting song. How shall we greet them? After much choreography of the Haka & then Waltzing Matilda, we ended up yelling and screaming at the top of our voices. We waved our paddles in the air like crazy and blew our whistles as loud as we could! Justin & Jason were equally excited. They stood up, also waving their paddles, yelling and grinning from ear to ear. Secretly they told us that they preferred having fellow kayakers out there rather than the big boats. Our GPS told us we were 18 kms out. Justin & Jason looked great! One could never have guessed that they had just paddled over 3000ks for 63 days, battling everything nature could throw at them. Encountering storms with 9 metre waves, huge ocean currents that had them in an eddy for 10 days mid Tasman and head winds had slowed their progress. They had to spend days in the safety of their tiny cabin. With shining eyes they looked full of energy. They expected a couple of paddlers and a few people waiting for them on the beach so they were blown away to see so many kayakers on the water. We didn’t let on what was waiting for them around the corner at Nga Mutu harbour. The next few hours were blissful. Apart from one media boat and another which had been sent out to protect them from the busier shipping lanes, we had our heroes all to ourselves. Apparently they were nearly hit by a large vessel the night before. We chatted excitedly and told stories as we paddled towards New Plymouth’s harbour. They told us they had made a pact not to cry at their first sighting of land. But when beautiful Mount Taranaki rose before them, they couldn’t help but shed a tear! They told about washing their dishes over the side with sharks hanging about and when asked if they had ever Eskimo rolled their kayak, the answer was no, but it had definitely been on its side a few times. Lot 41 as their kayak was named, had a 1 metre rudder and when it left Australia weighed just less than 1 ton. The boys told us that they got the idea from a trip they, plus two other friends

did on the Murray River. The four of them paddled the whole 2400km length of the river. They thought that if they could do that, they could paddle the ditch. As we drew nearer to Nga Mutu, more vessels joined us. Before long peace was shattered. Motor boats, kayakers of all sorts, Waka Ama, media boats, and surf club IRBs cleared the way so no-one could get near our heroes. We were amongst hundreds of others escorting Lot 41. The beach scene was incredible. In five hours our quiet harbour was transformed by a mass of around eight thousand people. The web site crashed due to thousands of people trying to log on during the morning, so our cell phone had been going flat out with people asking when they were going to land. Apparently close to one million people around the world were trying to log on that morning. Many missed the landing as the web site was predicting 3-4pm when it crashed. We couldn’t beach our kayaks due to the lack of space. Justin and James were overwhelmed! They weren’t expecting anything like it. When they first caught sight of the beach they thought that the masses of people were rocks! As lot 41 came to a halt our two heroes stood up in their kayak to the roar of the crowd, leapt into the water and then arm around arm, stumbled into the crowd and disappeared from our view. We sat in our kayaks reflecting on a couple of awesome Aussie mates. They are real blokes with big hearts. They love adventure the sea, kayaks and life. In the time I spent on the internet, and the short paddle to greet them, I got to know them as friends. Justin & James, If you ever get to read this article, thanks for letting us share just a little of this incredible journey with you. You will always be heroes in our hearts. Thanks for inviting us out to a meal. I was gutted I couldn’t go but wasn’t able to delay dropping my kids in Tauranga for another day. Pete and I still proudly wear the t-shirts you gave us and one day we will tell our grandchildren about your incredible accomplishment and how we played a small part in helping you make history.

Be Prepared

By John Sanderson

One Saturday the weather was perfect. My good mate Jim and I intended to paddle from Takapuna boat ramp to the shipwrecks on the northern side of Rangitoto. I was in the water calling in a trip report to the Coastguard and eating a protein bar, while Jim adjusted his gear. Then we were off. I am a very healthy and fit 51-year-old with no [previous] food allergies. An hour and a half later I developed anaphylactic shock and came close to death. Looking back, it’s easy to see what had happened. Less than an hour into the trip, I felt a tingling in my fingers, toes and lips with slight swelling and was slightly nauseous. Five metres from the coastline the symptoms were intrusive. I knew that I had to get ashore – fast!

· Carry dry clothing in waterproof bags · Carry a towrope and make sure it is readily accessible · Are you fit enough and experienced enough to complete the journey? · Be prepared to take shelter and wait if weather takes a turn for the worst · Always leave a trip report with Coast Guard, plus advise family · Before and during your trip listen to weather ‘now casting’ on VHF channel 21 (Auckland) · Before your trip use the 2-minute report on Canoe & Kayak website

Anaphylactic Shock What is it?

A severe and sudden allergic reaction which affects the whole body. It is life-threatening and can occur at any time. Risk increases with prior history of any type of allergic reaction.

Symptoms?

Difficulty breathing Wheezing Abnormal (high-pitched) breathing sounds Confusion Slurred speech Rapid or weak pulse Blueness of the skin (cyanosis), including the lips or nail beds Fainting, light-headedness, dizziness Hives and generalized itching Anxiety Sensation of feeling the heart beat (palpitations) Nausea, vomiting Diarrhea Abdominal pain or cramping Skin redness Nasal congestion Cough

In wave surge, landing was tricky on a steeply shelving rocky cove. I rushed off to the scrub and struggled with violent vomiting and explosive diarrhoea. The purge didn’t help and I felt dreadful. I was having trouble breathing, couldn’t control my limbs and my vision was narrowing. By this time my face and extremities had started to swell. I mumbled to Jim that I’d feel better in a half hour, but he insisted that we call the Coast Guard on Channel 82 immediately. If we hadn’t had our own waterproof VHF radios and he hadn’t insisted, I wouldn’t be here today. Lapsing in and out of consciousness accompanied by convulsions I was aware of Jim taking control. He tells me that the Coast Guard cutter arrived within 10 minutes and sighted our yellow kayaks on the rocks. The medic landed with oxygen and called in the Westpac Rescue helicopter. With no place to land the pilot hovered about six metres away while he offloaded the paramedic and stretcher. I remember the incredible noise, grit, spume and sand flying around me. When I was finally airlifted away to Auckland Hospital, the down-draft had Jim scrambling to hold down the kayaks and the Coast Guard medic rushing to save his inflatable! Meanwhile, Jim was left to clean up mess. The Coast Guard cutter transported Jim and both kayaks back to Takapuna boat ramp. Charged with organising kayaks and vehicles, Jim was kept pretty busy but he was pretty shaken by the turn of events as you’d expect. Only four hours after arriving at the hospital I was physically well enough to go home. Emotionally though, it took longer for Jim and I to come to terms with what had happened.

Caused by?

Most common causes include insect bites/stings, food allergies, horse serum (used in some vaccines) and drug allergies. Pollens and other inhaled allergens rarely cause anaphylaxis. Very rarely, an anaphylactic reaction will occur with no identifiable cause.

What to do?

Dial 111 - Urgent professional medical attention is required. CPR may be needed and the airway should be kept as clear as possible. Treat the patient as for shock and monitor airways, breathing and circulation.

People with a known severe allergic condition may already carry an Epipen or allergy kit. The Epipen should be administered immediately according to instructions. The adrenaline (epinephrine) opens airways and raises the blood pressure by constricting blood vessels.

However, we also learned a few things through this experience and I’d like to share some of them with you now. Kayaking is not just about having a good time. You have a responsibility to your fellow kayaker, your family and friends to make sure you are safe on the water. Ultimately, you don’t want to risk other people’s lives to rescue you. Think of safety and planning as ways of putting a few different ‘threads in the water’. Hopefully at least one will catch when you need it to. It worked for us.

Be prepared! · Complete a Sea Kayaking Stage One Skills course as a minimum · Complete a VHF course through Coast Guard · Complete a first aid course and carry a complete first aid kit · Join the Coast Guard · Always have at least 2 lines of communication (VHF and cellphone). Keep in waterproof packaging even if it says on the outer that the equipment is waterproof. Why take a risk? · Carry smoke and daylight flares

Fiordland Experience Spring 2007 by Anjuli Burrell At the Wellington Yakity Yak Midwinter Christmas celebration, 4 of us covered the floor with maps and charts of the Milford Sound area, planning and dreaming of kayaking. Before I knew it, the trip was posted on the website, and classified as ‘Intermediate’. I doubted whether, with limited experience, I was up to it. But 2 teenagers coming with us eased my fears. The count down to the trip began. We begged, borrowed and stole gear from other Yakity Yakkers, bought food and squashed things into dry bags. On Saturday, after 3 ½ hours on a ferry and 9 hours driving we reached Omarama Camp ground. Sunday dawned bringing another 7 hours driving on the long straight Canterbury roads and through scenic Central Otago. Numerous coffee stops, lunch, a last minute visit to the supermarket, a stop at the DOC office and we were at Lake Manapouri. We scurried around stowing what would fit into our kayaks, left the rest for the 2nd half of the paddle, and launched into a head wind and slight chop. We reached Shallow Creek Hutt just before sun down and, watched by an untroubled kereru, slung our hammocks in the trees, lit a fire in the hut to cook dehydrated dinners and dried our clothes. It started to rain so my first night was a wet one. In a lopsided hammock fearful of falling out and slipping knots, sleep was disturbed. It drizzled during breakfast, but when we hit the water for our first full day Southland provided a still, eerie atmosphere with much rain and amazing rainbows. The wind held off for the morning, disappointing those of us with sails who planned a free ride. Some of us followed Tony, our adventurous one, nosing under water falls. I was thrilled by the anticipation of water drumming on the front of my kayak. We had lunch and made another toilet stop (yes, kayaking females go to the toilet in groups – one stops, and the others take the opportunity, uncertain when the next will be). In showers and some wind we paddled 31kms to the top of Lake Manapouri where the visitors centre provided a great veranda for cooking (provided you didn’t mind breathing mouthfuls of sandflies). The flush toilets were a great luxury. In need of a good night’s sleep 7 of us decided to make the most of the DOC hut up the road. Despite snoring, we enjoyed the mattresses and slept like

logs. Those toughing it out in the hammocks said they rested – maybe not so much sleep then! The next morning dawned, chilly compared to the previous day, with fresh snow on the surrounding hills.

was hard, so a snow fight and building a couple of snowmen at Lindis Pass was a welcome break. We had a night in Twizel and dinner at the local bistro. Somehow the whole town knew we were ‘the kayaking group’.

Faced with a 35 km paddle the group split into 3 – Russell, an injured party, and his co-paddler took the ferry out. They greeted us with the vehicles at the other end for the short drive to Te Anau. Secondly a group of 5, ready, impatient and getting cold quickly, got going with the third group of 6 following. I was one of the 5 very quickly wondering if that had been a good choice. I always seemed to be left behind. As the photographer and radio operator each time I caught up I’d have to stop to take a photo or talk on the radio.

In the morning we tried Lake Tekapo where we paddled for 40mins before the wind reached 50 knots. Paddles became sails while those with proper sails had an even better ride.

Our 5 had started about half an hour ahead of the 6 – and only just maintained our lead after losing time on a detour for a toilet stop. We finished lunch as the 2nd group arrived, and had a great afternoon paddle in fine weather and a light wind which, out of the shelter of the islands, provided some surfing. Te Anau provided luxury cabins at the camp ground, and a great group dinner to celebrate Neil’s birthday. We all appreciated hot showers and food cooked by someone else so much more after a long, cold day of paddling. Wednesday, snow closed the road to Milford Sound, our intended destination. Instead we decided on Lake Te Anau. After real coffee and bakery goodies we paddled up the lakeside to Te Anau Downs in perfect weather – no wind, brilliant blue skies calm water. Russell’s wrist was still playing up, so I had Caitlin in the double. Heading across the lake to Middle Arm and the islands there, like children, we played tag, racing about and sneaking up on each other. We had lunch on an island beach, the toilet stops weren’t limited to the girls this time. An alteration to a wetsuit made by a knife explained why someone had holes in his trousers! On the paddle back, we practised rolls and other stints in the middle of the lake. Andy showed us his head stand skills followed by a dip in the lake – Laura took the opportunity to speed away from her dad, the fastest I’ve ever seen her paddle! We returned to the vehicles and loaded the trailer. Loath to leave, and end a perfect day we lingered and, while Diane tried her hand at fishing, the rest of us watched the stunning sunset and ignored clouds looming over the mountains. On Thursday the weather was unfavourable so we left Te Anau heading north to find better paddling. We stopped at Kawarau for Andy and Laura to make a tandem bungy jump, and Tony to inspire us. He is the only 70yr old I’ve seen jump. After so much kayaking, sitting still in the van all day

Still hunting for good weather we continued north to spend the night in Akaroa. Probably our worst meal of the trip was at the local pub but walking round the water front, exploring the playground, climbing trees and sitting in the old whaling pots was a welcome change from driving. The next day we got the weather we had been looking for. We put in at Wainui, and started towards the heads in the hope of seeing dolphins. When a headwind picked up we turned back to head further up the harbour. A toilet stop proved not to be as private as normal. Random walkers came down to the bay where we were hidden behind rocks. A not so subtle approach had to be used in the end to warn them away! We found a great place with ‘left behind buildings’ for lunch, and debated what the little house, the emptied shed, and the run down tractor called “Goliath” had been used for.. The trip back was a bit more exciting. The waves had picked up and required more concentration. Our adventurous Tony practised his rolls amongst the waves, and the second time fell out (intentionally I realised later). It provided a great exercise in rescuing a fellow paddler, thought provoking for future kayaking adventures. Then we were on the road again, and yes heading north, with one more stopover at Hanmer Springs, for a soak in the hot pools to end over 130 kms of kayaking. We arrived early evening at the forest camp – great little cabins, and a lounge/kitchen set aside for us (maybe they thought we’d be noisy!), and discovered the hot pools were closed. A little Chinese restaurant looked after us for dinner, and we finished all our junk food and drink. We debriefed the trip in our lounge and went to bed in the early hours of the morning. Sunday started badly with the rugby results and the weather too windy and wet for paddling. Since the hot pools were now open we enjoyed a soak and then it was the last leg back to Picton and what seemed the longest ferry ride ever. A shame we never made it to Milford Sound but it was an awesome trip – great kayaking and sights, good company and many laughs. And Milford is there for a future trip. This motley crew consisted of: Andy and Laura Blake, Russell & Caitlin Pilcher, Paddy Gordon, Jolene Sutton-Herrick, Anjuli Burrell, Simon Barrow, Craig Stevenson, Tony

Speights Coast to Coast 2008

Race director, Robin Judkins (Juddy), dedicated this race to the international competitors. Personally I reckon it should have been dedicated to the support crews. They had free Speight’s on tap from the Speight’s mobile pub for the whole event which created a fantastic atmosphere for this iconic kiwi event – Good on ya Speight’s.

The women’s race had a most amazing finish. The top three were separated by under 3 minutes, with Emily Miazga crossing first in 13:16:24, 43 seconds ahead of Fleur Pawsey. Rachel Cashin was just a couple of minutes further back. Even more amazing the high tide at Sumner beach created a 30m swim to the finish!

The river level was extremely low on the Waimakiriri which made for a hard slog and plenty of bumps, scrapes and cracks in the kayaks. But it didn’t hold Richard Ussher back, he powered down the river and crossed the finish line in 11:03:52, 20 minutes ahead of defending champ and close friend, Auckland’s Gordon Walker. Ussher was delighted with the win having had a “shocker” last year. Third in the longest day was Christchurch’s own Dick Brunton.

The two day men’s event was won by Dougal Alan in a time of 12:10:21. Kath Kelly took the women’s title with a time of 13:44:59. Of course the Speight’s Coast to Coast isn’t just about the top guys, it’s about the average guys and girls like you and me who compete for the challenge, the camaraderie and of course the free Speight’s.
