Waitangi Day The dawn started with the bird song of yesteryear and the quiet chirping of half a dozen kids. It is now 2 pm and my dad has arrived to help proof read the articles for Issue 35 and Kevin from next door has dropped over for a coffee. As I left to retrieve my cuppa from the office (in my kiwi backyard shed) Dad asked Kevin if he was doing anything special for Waitangi day. It got me thinking.

What did we do to celebrate this unique Kiwi day? Up until that moment I had completely forgotten all about it. We had had a typical day, finishing or starting depending on how you look at it at 1am with the roar of the rifles as the possums fell like flies (well three did and air rifles can roar if you have real good hearing) Then 6 hours sleep and waking up on a deserted beach, a cuppa tea, a swim, bacon and eggs on the BBQ, then mow the lawn and push

Letters to the Editor Dear Pete, Helen and I recently made a trip kayaking down the Wanganui from Cherry Grove at Taumaranui, heading off on the 5-day river trip to Pipiriki. We are not experienced river kayakers, so we sought advice and bought publications, with a view to making the trip in our own Quality Kayaks “Penguin”s, and were told by DoC and by one of the river rental companies, who agreed to deliver our truck to Pipiriki, that these boats were suitable for the trip - being able to carry the provisions and tents necessary. We had a great first hour on the river meeting small rapids (me making a wet-exit at rapid nr 8, I think) and generally getting some experience on the river having only paddled in open water before. However, at rapid #15 (Towhenua), we came a cropper. We had been warned by the rental company that we should “stay left in the right-hand channel” on this one. The available publications also didn’t highlight any particular greater risk for this rapid, but we heeded advice, thinking that a left track would see us OK. What transpired was me “going-hard” to keep out of the prevailing flow and out of the way of trees on the true-right bank. Helen followed and I shouted to paddle like crazy, but no-good... Helen was caught in the main stream and pulled hard into the right bank. The result was a pretty scary collision with a large debris-ridden tree (one of about 5 over 50m) that tipped Helen out of her kayak and proceeded to “eat” it. The little yellow boat was well-and-truly stuck. I parked my boat about 300m downstream in an eddy and after fretting for a few minutes I realized that Helen was out and on the bank waving at me to come back and help her. The return walk through a swamp was tough work, but when I got there, it was clear that there could be no rescuing the kayak from the trapped scenario by hand. Thankfully, there was a small farm nearby. Helen and I peered sheepishly in the back door, announcing our presence with a holler, and our saviour, Robin, came out - offering towels, cups of tea, warmth and a phone to get our truck brought to us. Whilst we waited for our truck to arrive, Robin told us that the fee for all this help was that we had to sign the “guest book”. Perplexed, we agreed - only to have Robin tell us that we were the first caught on the bend this-yea r (mid-January), but that there had been at least a dozen a year for the remainder of the book - in fact, Robin’s family has owned the farm for over 10 years, and it took her over 3 years before she thought of getting such a book to record these failed tourism events - and she regretted missing all of those possible signatures. I am delighted with the help offered to us by the canoe-rental company. With some serious effort, we got the boat out from under the tree. We bent the nose of the kayak both ways and ripped the rudder wires off, but at least we recovered all of our gear from the hatches and (miraculously) from the bungees on top of the boat. It’s a lightweight penguin, so the double bend was, I am afraid, terminal (thank you AMI insurance). What concerns me is that Robin (bless her cotton socks) is in the middle of a move down to Wanganui to be with her partner who works in the Prison there. What is going to become of this “visitors book”? It is clear to us that a LOT people have had their journey cropped-short by this rapid to such an extent that they have rocked up at Robin’s farm, found her in, received a cup of tea and signed the book. How many more have not found her in, or have walked out to the road and begged help? How many more have lost gear here, or damaged equipment? Inshort, just what is the legacy of this particular rapid? I am not alarmist. In fact, every one that we talked to has said that this is the last rapid of renown and we should go back and complete the trip - we just might. I just wanted to pass on our experience so that it might be recorded for others to have in their pocket when approaching this particular rapid. Beautiful river though. Cheers, Lee Paterson

Dear Lee and Helen

else it’s a blackberry field and you are only wearing jandles”

Sorry about the loss of the trusty Penguin, this great kayak is one of my favourites and is well suited for the Whanganui and many other adventures.

Have a look though this list and see in which areas you feel more awareness and skill would be of help next time to miss that Damn Tree and save your Trusty Steed (Penguin)

We have been told of many such experiences on the Whanganui and other rivers and this has shaped the way we look at the skills that are required to navigate any river safety. (The comment that you were past the worst is not correct. There are many more rapids with potential problems which need a careful approach to negotiate them safety.) I have attached a list of recommended skills and knowledge from the New Zealand Kayak Instructor Award Scheme (NZKI Award Scheme) as they might show paddlers the areas that need to be focused on before contemplating the trip. These skills are required to enter most races on Grade Two Rivers of which the Whanganui is one. These requirements are, we feel no different for a recreational paddle down a Grade Two River. In fact because of the normal support offered on a Race i.e. lots of experienced paddlers, officials at the tough spots and a jet boat or helicopter on call by satellite phone, you may well need better skills in a completely unsupported trip in the wilderness. The reason for most incidents is very simple. The participants did not have some of the paddling skills or knowledge to recognise and avoid a river hazard. Most people are conscientrous, as you have been, in talking to others about a planned trip, but often the questions asked are not searching enough to get the hard answers we need to be safe. An example I use when running risk management training with staff is to ask “Who is a good swimmer?” Most reply with a very positive “Yes”. Then I set the parameters of my question by telling the group “we are going to a west coast surf beach, swimming out though two metre waves to an island one kilometre off shore”. All of a sudden my definition of a good swimmer is outlined and the group beats a hasty retreat to “I’m not that good”. The point being, asking a question is of little use if you have little or no concept of the environment the answer relates to. The common practice of using a guide book to read your way down the river has flaws and is not recommended unless you have the knowledge to recognise and skills to avoid the hazards that they are describing. Most instructors are of the opinion that people paddling the Whanganui should have either the paddling skills and knowledge suitable to the conditions or an experienced qualified guide to steer them away from the dangerous areas and if needed, be able to attempt a rescue safety, when all else fails. However many other people disagree and cite the reality that no one has drowned on the river. Most people have a few spills and finish with positive memories, so what’s the problem? We are all in a difficult area, on one hand the Maritime Safety Authority (which is the mouth of the Government on these issues) says something along the lines of ‘ A hirer of a vessel becomes the captain of that vessel and has the responsibility for ensuring the safety of the vessel and the people on board’. This effectively takes most of the responsibility away from a company hiring or selling the vessel and puts it on a person, who in many cases, is only attempting the voyage because the sales person is saying “ It’s easy and anyone can do it”. On the other hand we have the Kiwi Can Do Attitude, which we all cherish. But the nation’s youth spend less time stubbing toes, getting rope burns, splinters and blisters and are not developing a healthy respect for the outdoors. This along with a huge increase of Kiwis being new immigrants with little or no outdoor experience to call on. So for many survival rules have changed for they are now often based around “Why did no one tell us”, rather than “Bugger that hurt, I’ m not doing that again” or an obituary reading “ John was a real Kiwi and died doing what he loved. Good on him.” The answer is not the same for everyone, but the simple survival rule is “ Don’t kid yourself that life is safe for everyone. It is only safe for those who know what to look for and how to deal with it when they see it. For everyone

The thing about NZ that we love and most would hate to see change is that we can still make our own minds up in the outdoors and one can only hope this continues. So well done in surviving this test, Good luck with your next adventure.

ADVENTURE PHILOSOPHY

The Unclaimed Coast Adventure Philosophy’s South Georgian Odyssey

Mark Jones

Mark Jones is a member of the Adventure Philosophy team and lecturers at AUT University on its Outdoor Leadership courses. South Georgia Island. People who had been there spoke of it in hallowed tones, with faraway looks, in turn intense or misty eyed. Each had an epic to share: a shredded tent, an anchor dragging, seas whipped to frenzy- narrow escapes. Marcus Waters, Graham Charles first heard of the “unclaimed coast” in March 2001. There had been two attempts to paddle around the island - the south west coast, a full third of the island had never been kayaked. It was a coast that had seen fewer than 5 boats of any description explore its length since the sealing days. I talked to people who had been there and read everything I could lay my hands on about the place. The impression I was left with was of an uncommon island, remote, beautiful and unquestionably wild. But it was the wildlife that drew me to it more than anything. Stories of beaches buried under seals and astronomical numbers of penguins, a veritable Serengeti of the south. The thought of visiting the island and exploring it under our own steam burrowed into my mind like a worm. I acquired a 1:200,000 chart of the island from Argentina, and from time to time I would furtively open it, gazing wistfully at the outline of the island, tracing its coves and headlands with my eyes, trying to imagine just how it would feel to see them from sea level. The mind worm burrowed deeper... The Island itself is one of the most remote parts of the planet, but a flight from Auckland via Santiago to Port Stanley in the Falklands and then sailing 1300km ESE will get you there. It doesn’t seem so far away when you say it quickly. We sailed with Greg Landreth and Keri Pashuk aboard a 53-foot Ketch Northanger, with a long history of successful polar expeditioning. After six days we gained our first glimpse of South Georgia. Impossibly jagged peaks, floating untethered in a distant haze with a large tabular berg sticking up from the horizon like a worn molar.

Three groups of young New Zealand adventurers have gained the opportunity to live their dream adventure through the 2005 Adventure Philosophy - GORE-TEX(r) Good For Life Scholarships. The scholarships, administered by Adventure Philosophy, funded by GORE-TEX(r) outerwear, and sponsored by Mountain Safety Research (MSR), Bivouac Outdoor and Macpac, required applicants to submit an in-depth proposal for an adventure.

My mind winnowed through other possibilities and the real reasons that I was there soon dropped from the chaff- the quickness of breath, the extraordinariness of each day, the mystery that each unfolding headland held; for the shouted exultation of joy, and the warm glow of satisfaction at the end of a hard won day; to experience simple awe of the elements and nature unbridled- extravagant, unsullied and mysterious; for the

Then everything was swallowed up by cloud and South Georgia became a smear of luminescence on the radar scree. It looked rather like those ink blots that shrinks are fond of using to psychoanalyse their patients. As this similarity struck me I couldn’t help but ponder why I wanted to be here. What state of mind drives one to want to travel to such a far-flung scrap of land at the edge of the world, to journey nearer the edge of reason that I cared to admit? To be the first to kayak around the island was how we had pitched it to sponsors, but that wasn’t the attraction.

camaraderie. In brief, to come back richer and to share it with others. We watched the island grow in stature from distant peaks to an omnipresent icy massif thrust from the sea. It was bitterly cold; a penetrating cold that stung uncovered skin. We dropped anchor in Right Whale Bay. The landscape looked cold and mirthless, all rock and ice and wind scoured snow, but I still felt it was the island of my dreams.

The small local populace of KEP was pleased to have the company, ours being the first boat of the season to visit and consequently I woke the next day with a thumping hangover. Snow coated Northanger and our three Sea Bears strapped to its deck. It was a strange day sorting gear as we got to know folks only to say goodbye to them again, packing the Bears and making decisions on the nitty gritty of what to take and leave.

One moment was particularly incongruous, sitting in The next day we motored all the way to King Edward Point the spacious lounge of the newly built base (KEP) where the British maintain an administration commander’s house, being interviewed for their South and research base. We saw the island from afar, a Georgia Island website, while less that ten metres from detached yachtie’s view of the coast.

ambition. I wondered whether our own aspirations were going to meet a similarly humbling end. Nothing I heard from the locals did anything to reduce the anxiety I felt about what lay ahead of us. We left in falling snow about 3pm. There was not a breath of wind. South Georgia was showing us a welcoming benign face. The falling snow, disarmingly beautiful, gave a fairytale-like air to those first few kilometres. Snowflakes settled on the Bears and dusted the cliffs and tussock clumps. The seawater was so cold that the snow formed patches of porridgy slush rather than melting. We opted for a short day rather than a pushy leg to the next known landing, which would have entailed setting up camp in the dusk. Maiviken cove it was to be then, absolutely picturesque, with a small beach littered with elephant seals, fur seals and gentoo penguins. The backdrop was tussocks capped with snow and out in the bay a blue berg lay grounded like a sapphire in a puddle of snow melt. We used a snow shovel to level a patch of gravel and pitched our Hemisphere as we would every night, anticipating the worst, with two poles through each sleeve, canvas valences weighted down with gravel, and guys strung to clumps of tussock or large rocks. It was as bombproof as a small tent could be. Any sense of security however evaporated once inside with sound of scrunching gravel as 3 tonnes of elephant seal galloped past the door. We awoke, unsquashed, to a calm, clearing morning and paddled for three hours past Stromness Bay, the distant ruined whaling station we could just discern from the crest of the bigger swells. The sea pounded the island with unrestrained force in a campaign against the land that was as old as the earth itself. 3-4 metres of swell produced a great confusion of reflection waves and spectacular scenery. At the appropriately named Humpback Rock huge plumes of surf shot skyward as though a whale was breaching. I had a cross marked on our map (which indicated a potential landing spot garnered from something read or someone talked to) at the back of Hercules Bay, 20km from where our day began. However, the cliffs surrounding the bay were as precipitous as the rest of the coastline and we headed into the

farthest corner, a kilometre away, on faith that our information was correct. Sure enough a 50-metre ribbon of gravel had been heaved above the sea at the back of the bay. A waterfall poured onto the beach with the usual compliment of elephants, furries, gentoos and king penguins. Even beyond a slight necking in the bay the surf break was violent. After careful observation I lined up one of the bigger swells paddled hard on the back of it and landed high on the steep beach. It was text-book shore break landing, quickly jumping out of my kayak, it was all I could do to hold it on the steep slope and haul it over the lip of the beach onto the berm. The water around the island shallowed quickly and the beaches were steeper than anything I had ever landed on. After we were ashore we broke open our lunch packs and revelled in the

strangeness of lunching beside sea kayaks in snow, sucking on icicles and watching bergy bits wallow in the tide. There was something oddly exciting about the incongruity of it all. Another 20km took us past many beaches with dumping shore-breaks often with a powerful lateral wash sluicing across the face of the beach. I had no confidence in landing ten times out of ten in such conditions and hoped we wouldn’t be put to such a test. It was getting time to think about finding a place to camp. We passed a small cove with what looked to be a landing in the back of it and investigated it more closely. It had strangely little surf.

looks like a flat-spot behind those elephants.” Grum gave him a look that said the elephants could have it. “Why don’t we check this cove here in Antarctic Bay?” he said, indicating an indent on the map with his finger. I was about ready to get ashore and stow my paddle for the day, but the beach, if you could call it that, looked bleak and uninviting. “If the swell direction changes more to the north it might be a while before we get off this beach” I added. It wasn’t a place you would want to spend a whole lot of time and so it was settled, we carried on for another hour gambling on a better landing.

HISTORY

Dacre Cottage, Okura and the man who gave it his name by Ruth E. Henderson We were pounding the pavement, building up the legs and miles in preparation for walking the Lake Waikaremoana track, when I asked my mate Tessa Marshall if she knew of any local bush walks I could do. “You can always go and visit my Great Great Grandfather” she said. That was my first introduction to one of our country’s more colourful characters, Captain Ranulph Dacre - sea-captain, adventurer, pioneer of the timber export trade and the cottage that bears his name. To get there we parked at Haighs Road, off East Coast Road, 18 km north of Auckland and followed the track along the Okura river estuary through groves of nikau, pohutukawa and regenerating kauri to Karepiro Bay. It took us about an hour and a quarter of steady but gentle plodding. Kayakers can launch at any of the East Coast beaches: Mairangi Bay, Browns Bay with Long Bay being the most obvious choice if wanting only a short paddle of less than 5 km. By water, once across the estuary, it is easy to spot a big red barn. Next to it at the northern end of the beach lies Dacre Cottage. The cottage was built around 1855 - 1856 as a farm house for the 3,334 acre cattle farm owned by Capt. Ranulph Dacre and farmed by his sons Henry and Lief Septimus. Apparently it was built using local bricks and shingles, with the floor being made from terra cotta tiles which arrived in one of the Captains ships as ballast. In the early 1980’s the cottage was in danger of collapse and had been vandalized. The Historic Places Trust stepped in and rebuilt the entire cottage using old photos to guide them in its restoration. New bricks which matched the old were used with the remaining originals reused in the chimney. When Tessa and I turned up in 2004, much to our disappointment the cottage was locked, the window shutters nailed up, the garden and fruit trees covered in lichen and surrounding grass totally over-grown. A shamefully neglected and forlorn remnant of NZ history - hardly the tribute deserved by one of the most enterprising early traders of the NZ

coasts, who had the sort of adventures that make your hair stand on end. Born in 1797 Captain Dacre came from a good Hampshire family, son of Colonel Dacre, High Sheriff of the county. In 1810 at the age of thirteen he joined the Navy as a midshipman and served in the 1812 war against the USA. In 1816 he resigned his commission and became captain of a schooner trading in the West Indies, Australia and Pacific Islands. Between 1825 and 1831 he traded between Australia, NZ and London, and then he married Margaret Sea and settled in Sydney. In 1834 in partnership with William Wilks he set up a mercantile and shipping agency, intending to exploit Pacific products such as whale oil, sandalwood, kauri timber, greenstone and flax.

Another story tells of an awkward and tense moment when his baby daughter Julia, dangled on the knee of the chief, Patuone. She seized the great chief’s topknot. He immediately left the ship with

1980

Apart from recording that Dacre’s venture into the greenstone trade was not a success, the history books make little mention of these exploits, the exception being the timber trade. Kauri spars and masts were paid for by the lineal foot and according to the diameter. Whereas sticks of 3" (75mm) diameter were worth 7 1/2 pence per foot (300mm) the larger ones of 30" (750mm) diameter were worth eight shillings and seven pence per foot. Masts of 60 - 70 feet (18 20m) were needed by the Navy and a good top mast was said to fetch 200 pounds in London. I can’t imagine what their comparative value would be today! Top dollars! Capt. Dacre took his first load of spars from the Hokianga in 1827, trading in the ship Surrey. While trading around the coasts, he visited Mahurangi (and reputably was the first trader in this inlet), Whangaroa, and Mercury Bay.

Samuel Marsden had explored the Kaipara’s landward side, but Capt. Dacre in 1832 was the first to enter and explore its harbour. The historical material collected by Margaret Stevenson and W. Macdonald cites a couple of adventures: “The Kaipara chief who had undertaken to assist in procuring the spars suddenly downed tools and demanded payment of blankets and tobacco on account. This Dacre refused to give. Although the chief had a strong following, much larger than the Captains 50 men, Dacre stood up against him, even threatening to throw him overboard. The Maori was much impressed by his audacity and he set about earning his payment without more ado.”

all his people, the head of the chief being considered sacred and any illtreatment of it an insult. Retribution seemed imminent. For three days the Maoris debated. Patuone, argued that the child should be treated as ‘porangi’ or mad, as the action was not willfully wicked. Luckily this view was adopted and trading resumed. In another story “in 1832 Dacre travelled from Mahurangi to Coromandel in an open boat to get supplies for his men. On landing, a chief brained one of his men. Dacre protested so strongly that the chief confessed his error and offered one of his slaves to be killed as payment.” Needless to say this offer was not taken up, but it is obvious that Dacre was a man of courage, quick thinking and able to keep his cool in an emergency. In 1832 Dacre began cutting timber on a large scale. He established a spar station on the Mahurangi inlet, but H.M.S Buffalo took forcible possession of the standing trees. Although Dacre had begun squaring spars and preparing masts and had had the land surveyed by Mr Florence, he left the station declaring that “I remonstrated with the Admiralty but never got any redress.” He and his associate Gordon Browne resurrected his old station at Mercury Bay and in 1837 to facilitate the work they erected a sawmill, driven by water power. This mill seems to have been the first timber mill in the country. Dacre’s NZ enterprises were not a financial success, but by 1840 he was a leading merchant in Sydney owning a wharf, ships, and a cattle station. He was also appointed a magistrate and was a director of the Union Bank of Australia and the Sydney Alliance Assurance Company. In the Depression of 1842-1844 he became insolvent and set out to recover debts and property rights. This lead him back to NZ and in 1848 he purchased the 3,334 acre Weiti block. In 1854 he entered into partnership with Thomas Macky as a merchant and shipping agent and purchased more land including 4,000 acres at Omaha, still referred to as Dacre’s claim. In 1859 the family moved to Auckland, where he became one if its best-known and respected citizens. T. Macky and Co was one of the largest firms in the city, and towards the end of his life Dacre was once again wealthy. Throughout all the trials of being an

early colonist, his wife of 55years was his constant companion. About 1878 they returned to England, where he died in 1884 Since, my first visit and subsequent delving into Dacre’s history, the cottage is having another lease of life. In the winter of 2005 Peter Townend decided the cottage was worth preserving and a handy location for Yakity Yak visits. He entered into discussion with the Rodney Pat Costello helps transform District Council, owners of the land and building. a paddock to a lawn. Several working bees by club members and lots of on-going lawn mowing and talking by Pete have followed. Now we have a good base for club trips and even overnight stays.

Coastbusters 2006 By Paul Hayward

Sea Kayaking Symposium Auckland, March 17-19 Coastbusters has been run once every two years for about twenty years. How can it still be coming up with fresh ideas and why would people keep going back, you may well ask. Well, it’s easy. This sport of sea kayaking has so many fascinating angles. Yes, I know, there are only so many gadgets, so many ‘best’ muesli recipes and so many ‘easy approaches to using a sextant’. That’s not quite what we have in mind. There are whole aspects to Sea Kayaking that might just stretch your imagination. This year (for example), we will have the world’s best kayaking film director. She’s done work for the BBC, National Geographic and has produced some DVDs which will get your Aunt Mabel right onto the edge of her chair. You, of course, would just look bored and refer to the ‘Really exciting stuff we were out in, last weekend...’ Make sure you watch these before Mabel - you might muff your lines.

5000-odd years. Not, perhaps, ideal for that weeklong trip to the Barrier (you’d never get enough wine into that small volume hull) - but if you want to roll every-which-way and delve into the origins of our present-day kayak designs, come along and risk being captured by their enthusiasm. Back by popular demand is the wooden boat display. Boats to drool over and works-of-art that get paddled every week. Talk to their builders and find out why they are always planning the next one. The Inuit kayaking tradition lives on in kayaking’s equivalent to the Highland Games. Everything from harpoon-throwing to rope gymnastics consumes a whole week on Greenland’s chilly summer coast. Meet people who have competed and won in conditions that make you shiver - and listen to their experiences and what has motivated them to pursue this quest.

Justine will show us how you capture great footage from the seat of your kayak, while you’re working on staying alive.

This year we are incredibly lucky to have four of the world’s most skilled and experienced Greenland Paddlers - Cheri, Freya, Turner & Greg - who have agreed to come to New Zealand and show us some extraordinary things that can be done with a kayak. Not just show us, but help us to try them ourselves. If this doesn’t push you to improve your boat skills, we’ll be very surprised.

We will have a group of friends, up from Wellington, who have taught themselves to build and use skin-on-frame kayaks. These deceptively simple boats are the closest thing you can find (outside a museum) to what the Inuit paddled for

“What of our great NZ paddlers?” I hear you ask. John Kirk Anderson, Paul Caffyn (and hopefully Ben Foughy) are just some of our well-known kayakers who will be coming along to share their expertise. If you’ve heard them before, you’ll

know that they don’t stand still. If their names don’t yet mean anything to you, it’s time they did. Heroes are interesting folk. Well, OK, we will have some ‘normal’ stuff too. The obligatory food sessions, ones on great local kayaking destinations, kayak maintenance, gear and gadgets - we’ll find new twists. A kayaking Physio is a must-attend. He sealed his fate when he got the acupuncture needles out of his lunch box on a club trip last year - and sorted out a shoulder problem between sandwiches. At the last Coastbusters, we asked DoC to come along and have a workshop on what kayakers meant to them. They must have enjoyed it as much as we did, since they’ve agreed to come back and, this time, are bringing Conservators from Northland, Waikato, and Coromandel as well as from Auckland. If you want to contribute some good ideas, or constructively tell DoC what they could be doing better (or just hear what they have in the planning stages) you can’t get any closer to the horse’s mouth... There’s formal information transfer at Coastbusters, but many of the people who come every time say it’s the informal lessons that bring them back. Bet you wish tea-time lasted longer at work... well, you probably will at Coastbusters too. One of the first things we do is hook you up with seven other kayakers. Just for a quick get-toknow-you 10 minutes. So, even if you’ve never seen another soul at the event, within a few minutes you’ve got a few whose names you know.


They, of course, likely know a few more...Networking can be pretty painless. Throughout Saturday, you touch base with your ‘Pod’ members for a few activities. At tea, lunch & dinner (which are on us, by the way) you can talk with anyone you like. They may be world-famous - or you may be. It doesn’t really matter - nobody seems to lack for a topic.

if you can find someone who’s been through a Coastbusters’ Sunday morning paddle without enjoying it. Not likely.

And then there’s on-the-water. On Sunday morning you’re on the ocean - back into your Pods to keep you safe while we make you learn things and share knowledge. We mix in those with some experience and those with lots. That’s fun for both. The really experienced ones have been there and vie with each other to pass on some good ideas. The less-experienced bathe in it. See

So, if you’re a kayaker who has only recently taken up the sport, there is no better way to develop a feel for the possibilities. You can’t help but enjoy the weekend and stretch your horizons. If you’re an old and jaded paddler - with more sand on your driveway than tar - come along and look at the waters into which some poor souls have wandered. You should be so tempted.

Coastbusters 2006 Sea Kayaking Symposium Auckland, March 17-19

Sunday afternoon has a BBQ on the beach and a series of wet workshops that let you put these ideas into motion. It’s more than falling into (or out of) boats - but it certainly fits Ratty’s meaning of ‘messing about’. Advanced skills!

All this was a far cry from my role as a Presbyterian minister of some sixteen years. This, however, was coming to a close as financial constraints meant that the church could no longer afford to employ me. So here I was, stranded between the end of what I knew, and the beginning of the unknown. Ever been there? It’s a very uncomfortable place, but also one that enables a move forward into new territory. The possibilities expand, and new opportunities present themselves. And so it was for my wife Joy and myself. Joy was busy with a private counselling practice of her own, but she too knew that we were heading in a new direction. One day we dropped into the Hamilton shop and saw the business was for sale. A few phone calls, a few meetings, a few sleepless nights, and suddenly, we’re in a new place that we could never have imagined a few short months previously. Joy and I are slowly getting to grips with how to operate a busy little shop and we’re already realising the need for help! We will sometimes call on the services of our children, Amanda aged 19 and Sarah, aged 16, but we know that we also need to employ people who can guide and instruct. We do have some future potential help in the form of a grandson, Sairis, (sounds like “Cyrus”), who is 6 months old. We have to wait a bit for that help but we look forward to influencing him as our first little “paddle rat.” Do drop in the shop and say “Hello”.

OUTDOORS WITH

Aspects of Outdoor Leadership: Know Thyself The kayaking session on the lake had been postponed because of the wind, but the afternoon was full of the promise of an exciting canyoning trip. The group clomped down the muddy track, squeaking in their wetsuits, chatting nervously. The abseil into the Mangatepopo Gorge had a fierce reputation and this grey day did nothing to dispel qualms. I was in a coinstructing role, rigging the abseil for the first time, feeling as nervous as my clients both because of the activity and because the Chief Instructor, Marty Beare, was observing us. At one point in the set-up, I casually clipped the safety rope into a very thin tree branch and continued final preparations. My co-instructor noticed nothing. Marty, however, quietly sidled up to me and suggested that “The safety line anchor could be improved”. Then he showed me how. No fuss, no ego games in front of the group. Preparations complete, I clipped in and descended into the Gorge, with the river roaring far below.

Embarrassing and Enlightening Over the years I’ve thought about that moment and how embarrassing and enlightening it was for me. Embarrassing because I instantly felt like a drop-kick incompetent, because I should have known better, but had let my nervousness cloud my thinking. Embarrassing because I’d run lots of abseiling sessions, but none for quite a while and I had got rusty. It was a wake-up call, a warning not to assume knowledge will be there but to make sure it is. More significant however, was the way in which Marty conducted himself that day, with the prescience to be there in the first place, the quiet intervention and, later, the chat in the office over the cup of tea. It was an impressive display of a man at the top of his game - he recognized a potential problem, he provided the safety net, he made space for learning and growth.

How Good Are You? One of the hardest things about developing your leadership abilities is working out how good you actually are at various skills. What do you measure yourself against? Your peers? A mentor? An industry qualification? I know people who have passed NZOIA Rock 1 with minimal experience and inconsistent set-ups, yet now hold the same qualification as someone with a vast array of climbing experiences built up over years. I have seen a group of aspirant leaders so caught up in the world that they have created around themselves that they were oblivious to their faults. No amount of suggestions, hints, or directives could convince them that they needed improvement. Their peer group provided a comforting cushion of ill-informed competence. Perhaps the key to working out where you are at, is to find someone or something that you respect and compare yourself to them or it. It may be a checklist of the qualities and attributes which an outdoor instructor should have as in the book “Effective Leadership in Adventure Programming” by Simon Priest and Mike Gass. Work through the list and ask yourself “Do I have these yet?”. If not, they become goals that you set for yourself. It could be an individual whose career you wish to emulate or whose qualities are desirable. Exposure to Marty’s calm competence and proactive involvement was something that inspired me to attain these qualities. Later, when I found myself in a similar role as Marty, I used the memory of how he had treated me, to guide my interaction with new staff.

Development Is A Conscious Decision Sometimes it’s a ‘pick’n’mix’ approach that works best - you see qualities or skills in a host of people that you desire for yourself; these provide the yardstick to measure your development. When I was learning the trade, I wanted Bev Smith’s ability to smile and play on rainy days; Mick Hopkinson’s mastery of a variety of technical pursuits; Will MacQueen’s calmness under stress; and Brian Staite’s madcap sense of humour. I consciously worked on those attributes; proof of progress came with every testing situation. Of course there are some dangers inherent in comparing yourself with others; there will always be someone who climbs or paddles harder than

you. And what makes these people achieve in one technical area - for example, total focus - may be a handicap in a group or society. Similarly, you may have attributes that are important but not necessarily valued by a dominant peer group. Women in the outdoors often battle with a perceived lack of technical virtuosity, while their ability to empathise with and motivate students goes unnoticed. Industry qualifications, such as those offered by NZOIA (NZ Outdoor Instructors Association) or MSC (NZ Mountain Safety Council) or SKOANZ (Sea Kayak Operators Association of NZ) are a solid yardstick to compare yourself against. They hold up a pretty reasonable mirror to your abilities and provide a clear pathway to achieving technical skills. But they are a starting point, not a finish line.

What Makes You Unique? Perhaps the fastest measure of your strengths and weaknesses as an outdoor leader is to ask the people that you work with. From canyon guide to tramping club leader to sea kayak guide, every person running a show should solicit feedback at some point, from both clients and fellow workers. By having the feedback written down, it allows you to chew over it in your own time. To ensure you receive comment on what you want, make a form with specific questions that you want answered, eg: What do you feel are my strengths? How could I improve my performance as a leader? How would you rate the pre-trip planning/ information? If people are given the appropriate time and space and encouragement to fill this form out, usually you will receive honest, thoughtful answers. Lastly, we all have things to work on, and developing the ability to analyse your own performance is a necessary thing to do. But equally we all have useful skills and attributes that not only make us unique but also bring a positive spin to our leadership role. Make a list. Know thyself. One of the things I’ve discovered about myself that has been extraordinarily useful at building relationships with clients, is my love of musical trivial pursuits. Just ask “Who were the seven greatest rock guitarists as voted by Melody Maker magazine in 1969?” to the next group you have; sure as eggs someone will get hooked in!


Safety at Sea - The Law and how we can work within it by James Fitness I have always prided myself as an all round boatie. I sail, kayak, fish, all with varying qualifications. In an ideal world all sea goers would co-exist on the water, with no animosity. Unfortunately there is a culture of intolerance of others and ignorance of some rules, that if observed, would alleviate the tension between boaties.

A point of interest is that the leader of the group is not the skipper. Each individual makes his or her own decision based on the advice given by the leader. Should you decide to take a different course of action, that is your choice and you are responsible for your decision.

Over the next few issues I will be going through some of the rules and regulations of boating at sea, and what equipment you may need.

The use of Safety Flags is highly recommended and lights are compulsory (by law).

As more and more kayakers take to the water, we are increasing our chances of being involved in a maritime accident.

Make sure you know what emergency equipment you have on board, and where it is stowed. Discuss with your group what you all have as a collective. Sharing of some items may be appropriate.

It is our responsibility to reduce this risk as much as possible. The most effective way to do this is to join the boating community as a whole, looking at other users and how they operate, and joining in with communication systems, search and rescue and abiding by international protocols. If we are expecting to be rescued, then perhaps we should be looking out for others also. Kayaking is a sport that ensures an amount of freedom & choice. Some will consider this advice restrictive or costly. But with the freedom of the sea, comes the responsibility to behave in a safe way and not endanger others, especially as we expect maritime agencies to help us if we get into trouble. I suppose the most important thing to understand, is that you are in charge of your own small vessel. Every boat, regardless of its size, must have a skipper. The skipper is responsible for the safety of the boat and all people on board. (Tandems, Triples)

So, as skipper, you must ensure you have enough equipment to make the intended journey. Ensure you are as visible as possible.

Wear a lifejacket. It is law that you must wear a lifejacket when in heightened risk. Children and non-swimmers should always wear a life jacket. Only paddle in conditions that you are comfortable in, not putting yourself, or anyone else at risk (i.e. your rescuers) Get a marine weather forecast before you leave, and understand what it means. If in doubt don’t go out. Make a trip report on VHF radio and stay in contact with the coastguard. Fill in a 2-minute form and leave it with someone responsible. Have a chart of the area you are in, and make sure you are aware of hazards such as rocks, tidal rips and over falls. For maritime laws that apply to boating of all shapes and sizes, visit www.maritimenz.govt.nz.

The skipper is also responsible for the compliance with all relevant rules and regulations. Remember Even though no license is required to operate a pleasure craft in New Zealand, ignorance of any Maritime Rules or Bylaws is not accepted as an excuse. Failure to comply can lead to fines or prosecution. As skipper you are responsible for ensuring you have all the appropriate gear for your journey.

Motiti

by Lesley Noel

Spur of the moment is wonderful thing. Four Clubbies having a free Friday decided to do a trip out to Motiti Island. We had been looking at this trip for some time and conditions were ideal. We met at six am down at the end of Papamoa beach. It was dark and the only thing to be heard was the gentle lap of waves on the shore. The Island always looked so far away and I was apprehensive. We had taken two demo boats out as well as Irene’s penguin and my Tasman Elite. Big Steve took some time getting himself organized in the Challenge 5 and while he was fluffing around I took some pictures of the dawn with Roger in the Euro X. What a way to watch the sun come up, sitting on calm seas with an exciting trip ahead. The trip actually only took about an hour and a half to cover the 10 kms to Wairere Bay having gone around Taumaihi Island. Taumaihi is not an Island most of the time, it joins Motiti by a rocky causeway which can only be crossed either side of high tide. Once landed we were joined by one of the managers of the avocado orchard on the Island and with us all being interested in the place he offered to take us on a tiki tour of the Island. We walked up thru a huge cutting, made for future exports of their fruit. At the top we climbed into his four-wheel drive and he took us through the plantings up to the highest point where we could survey all. They have over 16000 avocado trees planted and will soon be a major player in the industry, as there is a micro climate on the Island which results in the fruit being ripe at least two weeks earlier than elsewhere. No possums and few rats help as well. This is a privately owned Island half by avocado growers and the other

by Maori. An airstrip helps with transportation to and fro. A new landing/ jetty where the cut has been made will be the major way of transporting the fruit. We were back in our kayaks just in time to scrape over the rocks and not have to go around Taumaihi Island. We cruised slowly up the inside coast of Motiti rock gardening where we could. About half way up the Island is Te Rotoharakeke Point and around the corner to Orongatea Bay, where there is the only accommodation on the Island, a lodge. The beach was long and deserted and we landed to have a bite to eat. After swapping boats we cruised further up the coast to find seals on the rocks and even in the water to play with us. We made the farthermost point past Te Manaiti Point and could see the outside sea was a little rougher than where we were. Time didn’t allow us to circumnavigate the Island so we turned around and made a quick stop on the previous beach, and swapped kayaks again. Coming into the beach we disturbed at least a dozen large stingrays sunning themselves in the shallow waters. From there we took off back to the mainland keeping our eye on the radio aerial which would bring us back to the cars. It was the most awesome sea to kayak in, oily calm. Pictures don’t convey adequately the feeling. We arrived back at the beach at 3pm having to brave only a small surf landing. In summer snorkeling and swimming will be a must for a return visit and with longer days it will be another awesome trip.

Blue Duck Territory by Louise Tuin Ruapehu is one of the last strongholds of blue ducks in New Zealand. Tucked away 25 km southwest of Taumarunui, in the bush streams and rivers of the Retaruke Valley exists a more than average healthy population of the endangered birds. Their habitat is the fast flowing rapids of the Retaruke River, their diet the larvae and flying stages of aquatic insects. Protecting these vulnerable birds is not an easy task, but a necessary one as they are high on New Zealand’s list of nationally endangered species. Doing their bit for conservation are owners of Blue Duck Lodge, Dan Steele and Louise Tuin. Blue Duck Lodge in Whakahoro, is a destination for adventure and spectacular scenery. It is a tribute to the area to have blue ducks that prefer the absolute highest quality of water. Situated in a clearing on the banks of the Retaruke River, the lodge offers comfortable accommodation for a maximum of 8 people. Guests primarily come here to retreat and relax, while enjoying the outdoors through walking, horse trekking and mountain biking over the privately owned 6000 acres farm, much of which is native bush that has been fenced off and protected for restoration. Visitors can do their own bit for conservation by kayaking parts of the Retaruke River to survey blue ducks, and fish for trout, which is deemed environmentalist as these fish compete with the blue duck for food! In order to protect the blue duck habitat, many of the riverbanks have been fenced, trap lines have been placed to catch their predator stoats and rats, and work has begun to survey and band all of the resident blue ducks. While conservation work is specifically aimed at saving the Whio, it will naturally protect all native wild life including native bats, the kiwi, which can be heard at night from the Lodge, and also a rare species of Giant Snail, which has been documented here.

water rages and kayaking is for the more adventurous with gorges, papa shoots and small waterfalls to manoeuvre. There is an immense variety of scenery here and the bush is extremely compact with lowland forest, gorges, canyons, papa rock, waterfalls and wildlife to view. The condensed scenery towers above as the kayak glides through the pristine waters. In February last year DOC counted 42 ducks on the entire stretch of the river. The upper Retaruke is comparatively untouched and the ducks are not as frequently surveyed. There are several good put in places, for a total of 2 days paddling, which can be done in two or three parts. At Whakahoro, the Retaruke flows into the Whanganui River and goes on for miles. A few hours kayak from here takes you into the heart of the Whanganui National Park and you can return to the lodge by jet boat. Explore the untouched Retaruke River, which is becoming more beautiful and special through these conservation efforts. As the blue duck numbers build up it is becoming a wild life sanctuary. In the meantime, there is work to be done, grab your kayak and come and count some ducks.

With varying levels of difficulty there is kayaking for everyone on the Retaruke River. The lower stretch is the most frequently paddled. This entails 15 km of river which can be kayaked in approximately 2 hours, with up to standard Grade 2 rapids. During last year’s survey the DOC team counted 8 ducks and banded four here.

What an absolutely fabulous event we’ve all just had! The 2006 Speight’s Coast to Coast was a ripper. We were blessed with superb weather, a fast river and a tail wind on the last cycle section. I have to go back to 1994 to match those conditions. I was ever so pleased to be able to offer everyone in the event a spot prize, the first time a major sporting event in New Zealand has done so. I will do this again for the 2007 event - the 25th Anniversary Speight’s Coast to Coast. Next year is going to be a beauty. I’m inviting back all the “originals” from 1983 to compete or to watch along with all the “original” officials. There will be a new teams section for the Interschool Championships for students between 16 and 18 years, male and female, and a few other special things that you will hear about during the year. Tell your friends who want to do the event to register on info@coasttocoast.co.nz Now relax and enjoy the rest of the summer Regards, Robin Judkins.

Speight’s Coast to Coast 2006 The Spirit of New Zealand With the 24th year under the belt, it is time once again to reflect on another fantastic event. Rob Howarth reports on some remarkable tales that make this event the backbone of New Zealand multisport.

These stories are just two out of many that make The Speight’s Coast to Coast New Zealand’s favourite multisport Race. Full race results are printed in this issue of New Zealand Kayak Magazine but congratulations to all who completed their event, whether one day or two day, teams or individual.

When Richard Ussher made his way up onto the stage for the second successive year to collect his World Championship Gold Medal, there was an air of a champion about him. Only Steve Gurney (numerous) and John Jacoby (1988/89) have won the ‘Open Men’s Longest Day’ consecutively. With the Adventure Racing World Champs still in his legs Richard Ussher was not the favourite going into this years race. However an awesome effort on the mountain run cemented his position and despite a brave attempt by second place Gordon Walker on the final bike leg (clawing back 8 minutes) he crossed the finish line at Sumner Beach just under 6 minutes ahead of Walker. Gordon Blythen , who opted out of the veteren’s category in favour of the open men’s, finished 3rd.

Watch out for a series of articles focusing on some of this year’s competitors - starting in the next issue.

Here’s to 2007.

The women’s one day race was equally close with 10 competitors finishing within 45 minutes of each other. Emily Miazga (Canada) fought back on the kayak and final bike legs to claim victory over Elina Rautila (Finland). In the individual 2 day race Benje Patterson came home ahead of Steven Mckinstry while Sophie Hart beat Chrissie Wellington (UK) in the womens event. In the 2 day teams, Neil Gellatly and Robert Loveridge claimed the men’s prize while Sarah Hayman and Eloise Watson pipped Charlotte and Madelaine Martin to the post. Richard Ussher paid homage to the hundreds of every day competitors who add atmosphere and camaraderie to this grandfather event of the Kiwi multisport calendar. He is so right, of course, we love to read about the top guys and girls but there is so much that happens further down the field. Race organizer Robin Judkins spent the previous hour or so awarding medals and telling the most amazing stories to a packed auditorium - here are just a couple!:

Imagine cycling along the first stage and losing your contact lenses? Imagine also the horror of arriving at transition and realizing that you have no spare set and you can’t see bugger all! One brave lady decided that this was not going to stop her and off she set on the mountain run. She teamed up with another lady and they ran together toward Goat Pass. As the semi blind competitor stumbled across the rocks her new friend asked if she was ok “You seem to be tripping over quite a few rocks, are you alright?” “No” came the reply “I’ve lost my contact lenses!” Judkins jokingly worked out that the odds on the new friend having a set of identical contacts would be about 750,000:1. I guess it was the lady’s lucky day, because she did!!

Noel Mckay from Hamilton was competing in the individual veteran men’s two day event. His race was going according to plan until the last cycle section into Christchurch. Noel was riding in a bunch and clipped the rear wheel of a competitor in front. Pop goes his wheel and he walks his bike to the side of The Old West Coast Road. There is no backup cycle support in sight. Fortunately there is plenty of local support along the Old West Coast Road and Noel gets chatting to a farmer who was sitting on the side of the road watching the race. “Your bikes buggered” said the farmer. “I know” replies Noel. “I’ve got on old 10 speed in the shed” says the farmer, “I’ll go and pump the tyres up”. Noel hops on and carries on his merry way finishing the race in a very respectable time!!

Small - Yes, Works - Yes! I am 100kg and took this little sit on top out on a grey old windy day, fully expecting to use every ounce of my paddling skills to stay on top. But surprise surprise, it paddled well and had reasonable stability. I even caught a couple of small waves without thinking. So who’s it for? It makes a fun kid’s kayak because it is not too wide for them to paddle, and dad can have a play as well. Length: 2.40m, Weight: 16kg, Width: 700mm, Price: $485 with paddle

A fun double sit on top kayak with the option of a third person sitting in the middle. The kayak has ample stability and speed and performs well in the surf. Excellent features include moulded handles on bow, stern and on the sides, so a bigger individual can carry it solo or the whole family can help. A new system of attaching seats and thigh braces to the kayak is very smart and allows easier use. As a family boat or shared with a mate this is one fun kayak. Length: 3.90m, Weight: 28kg, Width: 800mm Price: $1199

Shearwater from Q-Kayaks The new Shearwater from Quality Kayaks has only been on our shelves for a couple of weeks but already it has begun to turn heads. Ever since the first sightings of the skin on wood kayaks paddled by the natives of the Arctic regions of Asia, North America, and Greenland; the modern kayak designers have been continually trying to improve on these primitive models. In our quest to produce the finest kayaks, kayak manufacturers have improved on the materials used, redesigned the shape of the kayaks and enhanced the fittings and features. The Shearwater is a moderate length polyethylene roto-moulded sea kayak that is only 4.8 metres long. The truth is the Shearwater has the same hull (bottom half) as the Penguin but has a slightly larger cockpit. The increase in size is not only beneficial to the more ‘solid’ paddler but there has been a significant improvement in the manoeuvrability of the kayak. The standard weight of the Shearwater is 26.5 kg and the lightweight version is only 23 kg. Even I can lift that onto my car. Due to the universal hull, the speed of this kayak should be identical to the Penguin. Good safety colours of yellow, red, orange or flame help with visibility. The kayak has a combined storage capacity in both front and rear hatches of 143 litres, which is a couple of litres shy of the Penguin. The difference though is very apparent with the increase in cockpit size from 160 litres in the Penquin to a whopping 190 litres in the Shearwater. This may mean that the kayak is more prone to windage (something Wellington doesn’t have much of!). The change of hull shape in the water as the kayak is edged over to one side changes the turning of the Shearwater significantly. Actually the kayak turns on the spot. Four or five good sweep strokes enable the Shearwater to complete a speedy 360° turn try achieving that with another sea kayak. Other improvements include a security/ towing bar located behind the cockpit combing, a new seat and padded backrest, a sturdy new rudder with a larger wheel to facilitate raising and lowering the rudder with ease, and a recess for the paddle to enable the paddler to fish, read a chart or make coffee with the paddle in an easy to reach position. Quality Kayaks have successfully created a stable, highly manoeuvrable multi-day sea kayak that is at home rock gardening, on expeditions or just playing around in the surf- and I want one! Kayak reports or ‘opinions’ can be very subjective and one person’s Lamborghini is another person’s Morris Minor. The best advice on which kayak best suits you should begin with a chat with your local Canoe and Kayak retail salesperson and then by trying a few kayaks out on the water to narrow your search. Only by spending a fair amount of time can you accurately assess each kayak in varying conditions.

12 MARCH 2006 Run 13km Cycle 58km Kayak 19km 90 kilometres coast to coast across the Auckland isthmus. From North Head, Manukau Harbour on the Tasman Sea, to North Head, Waitemata Harbour on the Pacific Ocean, the course is distinctive and challenging. “Head to Head” is an exciting race and also an adventure, a journey of discovery through Auckland’s surprisingly wild and scenic places. Compete as an individual or in a three person team. For further information or an entry form, contact the event organisers: Nelson Associates, P.O. Box 25 475, St Heliers, Auckland.
