Better Than That (A poem in memory of Mike Rowley – kayaker, kayak designer and manufacturer) ‘Twas while paddling a race Long boring and flat He thought of his kayak I can do better than that

With multisport growing The paddlers got better He soaked up ideas And the comments that mattered

The Duet was crafted Especially to meet International racers On our turf we would beat

Race over, recovered He set ‘bout his task To design a new boat Of gel coat and glass

Two heads, I’ve heard told Are better than one Richard Karn at the helm Designs became fun

But I digress, I’m sorry Back to design More input from paddlers There were things to refine

The result was quite stunning It made an impact The Destiny made Thinks he, “I can do better than that”

The Opus was born Long slender smart But, ah you guessed it He could do better than that

The F1 was made The Rebel and others All with comments from paddlers Whom he valued as brothers

The Intrigue quickly followed 60 sold just like that But he had a niggling suspicion He could do better than that

An interlude followed Steve Knowles appeared An adventure racer With new kayaking ideas

The records will show With pride and with grace Many a paddler In his boats winning, first place

With results noted In the racing almanac To his competitors says Mike “Can you do better than that?”

Mike, It is an impressive legacy which you leave behind, Joyce, the children, a family so fine International brand “Ruahine Kayaks” Put all that together, my friend, you couldn’t have done any better than that Kevin Osborne

A sad goodbye. The owner of Ruahine Kayaks, Mike Rolly passed away at the beginning of February. His enthusiasm, generosity and fun nature will be missed by all of us here at Canoe & Kayak. Peter Townend

MIKE ROWLEY Born in England in 1932, Mike moved to New Zealand in his 20’s to eventually settle near Dannevirke. In the early 60’s Mike and a group of friends started making canvas kayaks in a back shed. At this time he was also involved with the Tamaki Scout group and his interest in kayaking developed until he was able to borrow a mould to produce several fibreglass kayaks. These kayaks were used on trips Mike would organize on nearby rivers and often joined up with members of the Palmerston North Canoe Club and took part in many of their events. In 1975 the Ruahine White Water Club was formed with Mike, a foundation member. This club competes in and organizes a large number of events, including various river trips, club river races and slaloms, sea kayaking and polo competitions. Mike served many years as both President and Secretary of the R.W.W.C. and he also served on the executive of the N.Z.C.A. as ‘Touring Officer’. In 1992 Mike was rewarded for his services to the RWWC by being made a life member. He was the first person to be awarded a life membership of the RWWC. During this time Mike achieved many personal goals. One was when in 1984 he built and modified a fibreglass recreational double which he and John Craven successfully paddled across Cook Strait. The pair then teamed up with Bill Anderson and Max Grant and they completed a magnificent two week adventure in Fiordland. Their trip started in Deep Cove from where they kayaked out of Doubtful Sound and down the coast to Dusky Sound and back. This trip was followed a couple of years later by a 10 day kayak through Queen Charlotte, Pelorus and Kenepuru Sounds. Several trips were embarked on during this time, one of the most spectacular being a night crossing of Cook Strait with fellow kayaker Bill Anderson. As well as his adventures away, Mike was always available to help promote kayaking locally and in the early 90’s, was instrumental in setting up the polo competition at the Dannevirke swimming pool. It was at this time that he became involved in triathalons, mainly the Mountains to Sea and Dannevirke to Akitio Triathlon. Looking for new faster kayaks to compete at these events, he produced a triathlon kayak which he called the Destiny. This was the first of several triathlon kayaks Mike designed and made, which led to the forming of his present day company, ‘Ruahine Kayaks’. Today Ruahine Kayaks produces a range of nine different kayak designs and has become a major supplier to the multi sports industry both here in New Zealand and overseas. A recent paddle with Mike was our 20 year Fiordland reunion trip to Lake Tarawera. It was a marvellous weekend and we are so pleased to have been able to have shared it with such good friends. Mike was a man with a big heart, a man of great integrity and he will be sorely missed by his kayaking mates.

Pete Your article in NZ Kayak about rescues. That 2-boat rescue is the one I’ve been teaching for over a decade and the name I prefer is “Triple-F” - Face aft, Face down, Feet first. Face towards the aft deck. Face down on to the deck. Feet into the cockpit Face down on the AFT deck (NOT the stern deck). I do agree, forget the “T” rescue as it takes longer, can go wrong in extreme conditions and getting the rescued person to pump their own boat gives them something to do and gets them warm. I have had to do two rescues in potentially fatal conditions and agree it is better to have the kayaks facing opposite ways but NOT essential. If speed means both kayaks face the same way then that’s it. SPEED, get the person out of the water as soon as possible. ALSO, doing the rescue is only half the job. What caused the capsize? Has it gone away? If the answer is No, then you have to get them to a place where the conditions are more benign. This is where the assisted tow comes in. The bow of the rescued paddler is attached to your kayak about the middle (by the cockpit) and they hold your kayak, bow or stern and you paddle or drift down wind to a better place. Too many teach the recovery without the second stage. Finally, some kayaks are sold without decklines all round. The Eco series and Contours are the worst. Don’t try to hold slippery plastic when doing the rescue; loop your arms through the decklines (both sides) with the line in the crook of the elbow. To release, flick the arm straight. Sandy

Editor Thanks Sandy for the feedback, The “Triple F” is one of the more memorable names anyone has come up with so far, apart from some that are unprintable. But the jury is still out. Deck lines. I have found in capsize conditions deck lines are great to hold onto when you are swimming beside your kayak. But in team rescues boats can be torn apart by extreme conditions. If arms and hands are entwined in deck lines they can be damaged, as the kayaks are ripped apart by gusts of wind or waves. I agree with you that it is better to have the boats facing in opposite directions, as the rescuer can lean his or her closest hand, arm and armpit over the front deck just in front of the cockpit and use the other hand to hold the front of the cockpit. This position gives very strong joining of the two boats, giving great stability. This also allows for an easy separation in extreme conditions with little chance of damage to the rescuer. I also prefer to take a moment to get the kayaks facing opposite each other to perform most team rescues, because it is harder to get a supportive hold on the other kayak when facing the same direction. We were talking the other day about what to do with your paddle when performing team rescues. A lot of paddlers secure their paddle under deck lines and bungy cords. At a coaching session when I was learning to kayak the instructor said it was unwise to ever be separated from your paddle in this manner. The best place to secure your paddle was across the deck with your stomach and elbows holding it in place. Here it is always available instantly if anything goes wrong. If you secure it under deck lines, the paddle can swing away from the cockpit and out of your reach in an emergency. Thanks again Sandy for the feedback. It is great to have us all talking and debating these things more. If anyone else has ideas they would like to share please write to me. Peter Townend


Kissing Puffins Kodiak Island, Alaska by Ruth E. Henderson A s i s t h e m o d e r n w ay, t h e tri p organization started with searching the internet, Google Earth, email exchanges, and finally E-tickets… but its real beginning was an exchange of old fashioned hospitality between extended family. My husband’s sister’s husband’s cousin lived on Kodiak Island, Alaska and over the years had repeatedly invited us to “Come and stay”.

easily adapt to the changing maritime climate. Rain gear will come in handy. Bug nets and repellent are recommended.

A niece’s wedding to attend in Oregon, Marcia and Reed’s persistence and the tantalising pictures of fishing, kayaking, and bear watching offered by all the sightseeing and tour companies in Kodiak, proved irresistible.

Finally, over twelve hours after leaving Oregon, we reached the welcoming arms of Marcia, and were duly ensconced in the guest quarters. Over fish pie and salmon berry tart, we caught up on family affairs and I met my future paddling partner, neighbouring, Tricia Gartland. Plans were made for two days later. Tricia was to pick me up at 11am. I was shocked at the elected hour. Gosh, half the day gone!

We added Alaska to out itinerary and dragged out the suitcase. The list grew. Roles were going to be varied (wedding guest, tourist, kayaker…) and the climate variable (40 degrees in Oregon and 10 in Kodiak). We bought another bag. In went the long john poly props, paddle jacket, balaclava, gloves and a dry bag. I looked longingly at my Greenland paddle, but decided it would be just too much of a hassle. Travel note #1. August temperatures reach a high of 60ºF (16ºC) and a low of 48ºF (8.8ºC). Comfort is the only dress code in Kodiak. Dress in layers so you can

Overnighting with the bride and groom-to-be in Portland, first we were awoken by a 3.3 earthquake and then the 6am alarm for the early dash to airport to catch the 4 hour flight to Anchorage, Alaska to be followed by a one hour flight in a 36-seater to Kodiak. Due to low cloud/rain there was delay after delay - this was dubbed an airport day. Travel note #2. Plan ahead, make advance reservations, but be flexible. Be prepared to make changes depending on weather, tides, and flying and boating conditions.

Travel note #3. Average daylight hours June 18 hours; July 17.5 hours; August 16 hours. In other words it was still light at 11 pm. In the intervening day we walked down the road to Fort Abercrombie State Historical Park. This had remnants of a World War II military installation. Kodiak has had a pretty eventful history. In 1784 the Russian Merchant Grigori Shelikov determined to

establish a permanent settlement and massacred the native Alutiiq who resisted the foreign intrusion. The surviving natives were then forced into hunting sea otters for his Company. In 1792 the Company Manager Alexander Baranov established the first capital of Russia – America at St Paul’s Harbour, now modern Kodiak. The otter pelt warehouse built by Baranov is now the Baranov museum. It houses prehistoric native artefacts, remnants of Russian colonization and WWII memorabilia. A lasting legacy of the Russian era is the Russian Orthodox religion. The blue cupola of the Russian Orthodox cathedral is prominent in downtown Kodiak. After the USA purchased Alaska, in 1867, for about two cents an acre the Kodiak economy shifted from the fur and whaling trade to salmon. The town has had to be rebuilt several times. The eruption of Mt Novarupta (Katmai) in 1912 blanketed Kodiak with 60 cm of ash, which caused buildings to collapse. Then on Good Friday 1964 an earthquake measuring 9.1 on the Richter scale generated a series of tsunamis, the largest wave crested at 35 feet (over 10 metres). (A plaque on a corner of the police station marks the high water point and notices throughout the city give instruction on what to do in the event of a tsunami.) Travel note # 4. A warning system alerts residents to tsunami danger. If you hear an alarm, move to higher ground at least 1000ft in elevation. Avoid beaches, sea cliffs, and other exposed land forms. In between these two natural disasters fell WWII and during this time Kodiak was a major staging


area for the North Pacific operation. Military population boomed with the construction of Fort Greely, the Naval Air Force Base (now U.S.C.G. Base) and bunkers and gun emplacements at Chiniak, Long Island, and Fort Abercrombie.

Anton Larsen Bay, Sitka spruce dominates.

All was peaceful the day we wandered around the Park and Lake Gertrude. Salmon berries were plentiful, Sitka spruce were laden with moss, Kodiak Brown Bears stayed away (but I did have my whistle in my hand) and our view of Mill Bay and the Pacific Ocean, was uninterrupted. Although Kodiak Island teems with marine mammals, we did not get to sight any Stellar sea lions, sea otters, Dall’s porpoise or migrating humpback whales. Travel note #5. Avoid surprising bears at a close distance; look for signs of bears and make plenty of noise. Sing, talk loudly or tie a bell to your pack. Paddling day arrived and at due time, a Subaru loaded with two plastic kayaks pulled into the drive and we were off - up Buskin River, past the golf course, thru the Mountains over to the other coast and Anton Larsen Bay, Trisha’s first pick for a day paddle. The official guide ‘Adventure on Alaska’s Emerald Isle’ gave the stats. “Situated in the Gulf of Alaska, the Kodiak Island Archipelago parallels the Katmai Coast, along the Alaskan Peninsula for 177 miles (284 km).

Tsunami warning signs.

Sixteen major islands and many smaller ones encompass nearly 5,000 square miles… At 3,588 square miles (that’s nearly 1 million ha) Kodiak Island is the largest island in the group and the second largest island in the U.S.” (Hawaii is the largest.) “Ten thousand years ago, most of the islands were covered by glaciers that scored and carved the landscape. Jagged peaks, fjord-like bays, and wide U-shaped valleys were left by the glacial retreat. Although vast in size, no point of land in the deeply notched islands is more than 15 miles (24 km) from the ocean.” With all those indentations and islands a kayaker is spoilt for choice, and it’s not many miles to get to a put in, but the drive is not quick. Travel note #6. Most roads are unpaved, improved gravel suitable for ordinary vehicles. Ordinary in Alaska seems to be 4WD. Having snacked enroute we were on the water by 12.30. Sitka spruce lined the Anton Larsen Bay, cabins perched at waters edge, the stillness was broken only by paddle blade dipping and salmon jumping and skipping. There were oodles of sea birds – gulls, terns and the comical puffin. They must be the avian equivalent of the bumble bee – aerodynamically challenged! They need a long ‘runway’ to get airborne, and once up, instead of tidily tucking their webbed feet away, they splay them behind. Then there’s the fancy dress costume: two tone orange and red beak, a white face, black collars and ‘Saturday Night Fever’ swept back hair style. I thought they were hilarious. They didn’t appear to be worried by my laughter; they bumbled,

fumbled, kissed even and dived under water using their webbed feet for steering, searching for fish and zooplankton. We paddled on, out of the bay in perfect conditions, calm seas, and sunny skies. We stopped on a rocky beach for a boiled egg, orange and energy bar. There were lots of fishing boats going past. Trisha’s husband is a fisherman, and when ‘The fish are running’ she and half the wives in Kodiak do not see much of their husbands. Kodiak is one of the top three fishing ports in the U.S. and the Port of Kodiak is home to more than 650 commercial fishing vessels. Commercial fishing accounts for more than 50% of employment throughout the Borough, with fish harvesting and processing. Although salmon is the backbone of the industry, Kodiak has Alaska’s most diversified fishing fleet, harvesting salmon and bottom fish (including the fabled Halibut), shellfish and even sea cucumbers.

Paddling over giant bull kelp.

Lunch spot.

We continued on around to the east, towards Spruce Island, bumping over giant bull kelp, with buoy sized swollen bulbous floats at the end of their strappy stalks which were as thick as my arms. Even with the extended daylight hours, it was too soon time to turn around. The rookeries on wee islands were highly aromatic and at that time of the day raucous! The distant mountains were dotted with snow, and as the TV weather presenter put it, there was still “Sunshine plentiful”. Hmmmm, my idea of heaven. And what was my husband Ian’s most memorable Kodiak moment? Catching lots of fish! – his record was a 22 lb King salmon and a 70 lb halibut – that’s a fish about as big as a white water kayak and as heavy as our luggage… I had spent two hours at Portland’s REI store enroute and yes, we had to buy another bag!

Kodiak fishing boats, Ian off to catch Halibut.

Wildlife Encounter The afternoon sun warmed the small group of kayakers as we made our way along the southern side of Whanganui Island in Coromandel Harbour. After a previous paddle where 20 knot winds created a lumpy and confused sea, everyone was enjoying the serenity and relative ease of a calm water paddle. It was one of those times where you paddle a few strokes, glide, look around and enjoy the scenery, paddle a few strokes…. We were close into the shoreline, looking at a tree much abused by the resident shag population who were determined to defecate it out of existence. The shags eyed us warily as we floated around them. Each paddler was lost in their own thoughts, the music of tuis in the background and the lullaby of gentle wavelets on the sandy shore. Suddenly a yell disturbed the peace and attention turned to one of our party flailing at the surface of the water, shrieking something unintelligible. This was all the more disturbing as the particular paddler is normally very calm and “laid back.” Such out of character behaviour required a serious explanation. Everybody looked confused and wondered what was going on. After a further flurry of the water being beaten into foam with the paddle, the shaken paddler explained what had just taken place. Gently floating along in shallow water he had passed over a dark shape on the bottom. Quietly, he paddled backwards to have a better look. As he did so, the dark shape reared up with a fast whip-lash action, and the unlucky paddler immediately felt a stinging pain on his elbow. Holding up his elbow to view we could all clearly see the tear in his paddle jacket, a further tear in an inner layer of polypropylene, and a nasty crescent shaped wound on his elbow. There was only one creature that could have done this. It was a sting ray! Two thoughts flashed through my mind. The first was, “how serious is this wound?” After all, the Crocodile Hunter Steve Irwin had died after being barbed by a sting ray. Keeping a close eye on the paddler we were relieved to find no ill effects other than the sting of the wound. The second thought was, “No one is ever going to believe this!” The headline, “Sting ray attacks kayaker” sounds like a great wind up. So – out came the cameras. Our intrepid victim posed for a number of photographers eager to capture some physical evidence of the event. Since that time I have done a bit of research and learned that the creature encountered was probably a short-tailed sting ray, New Zealand’s most common ray. Don’t be fooled by the word ‘short’ in there! They can grow to a maximum length of 4.3 metres and weigh over 200kg. Their barbs can be 30 cm long. Fortunately, given their formidable size and fire power, they are normally placid. The only recorded fatality from a sting ray in New Zealand was in 1938, when an 18 year old female wading in the sea suffered a severe wound to the chest from a sting ray and died of her injuries. However, there are numerous accounts of swimmers, fishermen and even divers receiving wounds from sting rays. It appears there is a common factor in these accounts. In all the cases I read, the hapless victim was either looming over the sting ray, stepping on it, or blocking its escape in some way. This makes sense when considering what happened at Coromandel. The sting ray was warming itself in the shallow water, peacefully minding its own business, when it was suddenly overshadowed by a kayak, which – to make matters worse - then returned to rest directly overhead. In a panic response it had lashed out, striking the lowered elbow of the backward-paddling kayaker.

Watching sting rays in the water from a kayak represents no danger to them so it is unlikely any panic response would be provoked. It would be prudent to avoid floating over them in shallow water, however as it may be perceived as a threat and produce an aggressive reaction. As for our paddler, he recovered with no ill effects. He also has the distinction of being the only kayaker I have ever heard of who has been barbed by a sting ray. Unfortunately I am sworn to secrecy as to his identity!

paddling in Captain Cook’s wake by Sahra Grinham, Wellington Yakity Yak Club Trip to Outer Queen Charlotte Sound 1-3 December 2006 Aaaahhhhh ....

Exploring the outer bays of the Queen Charlotte Sound can’t help but engender in the intrepid Yakity Yakker a real sense of seafaring history and adventure. This is because the Outer Sounds are rich in the wake of Captain Cook, who found what is best described as a Paradise on earth here during his trips to the area in the 1770s. The glorious coves, sheltered bays, lush bush, rich birdlife and secluded islands remain today a magical, relatively untouched part of the world and an ideal place to explore by kayak. A December weekend kayak trip was not what I had in mind with the impending Christmas holiday season fast advancing. However with a ‘High’ forecast and my partner’s hankering to launch his new Tasman Express on its maiden voyage, we joined three other Wellington yakity yakkers and trip leader Andy Blake in merrily wheeling our kayaks onto the 6.15pm Friday night Interislander. At the Picton end a 40-minute charter boat ride up Queen Charlotte Sound to what is known as the Outer Sounds (almost at Cook Strait!) deposited us and kayaks in dead of night under a twinkling sky, at an excellent DOC campsite on Blumine Island.

The glorious 5am Dawn Chorus the following day couldn’t keep any of us in bed for too long and so began a fantastic sunny day’s paddle on glass around the coastline of several islands en route to our evening camp destination across the Sound at Cannibal Cove. This meandering paddle allowed time for a leisurely fish (outside of the Marine Reserve zone around Long Island, of course) and time to soak up the tranquility that the Sounds delivers on so well. The fish catch yielded several under-sized Blue Cod that were dutifully returned to the deep, but others with the correct dimensions were assigned to dinner. A stop-over at the historic Moturoa Island - now a bird sanctuary but renowned for where Cook first raised the Union Jack in 1770s – was well worth the climb to the island’s summit. We soaked up the 360-degree panoramic views down Queen Charlotte Sound and northwards across Cook Strait to Kapiti Island and the North Island mainland. A short paddle across to Cannibal Cove DOC campsite provided another good overnight stopping place. Renowned for the massacre of Cook’s men, the cove has a fresh water stream and the usual round up of neighbourhood bird life – pairs of oystercatchers, wekas and Paradise Ducks kept us entertained. ‘Glowing’ after a hard day’s paddling, the fresh catch, lightly floured, seasoned and cooked in a little oil, never tasted so good alongside the dehydrated offerings!


Sunday dawned overcast with a stiff breeze and 1-metre swell – and needing all the help I could get, I was pleased to have it behind us! A short paddle around to Ship’s Cove gave us a brief look at yesteryear, and a salute to the impressive memorial erected in 1913 to mark Captain Cook’s exploratory journeys to New Zealand and in particular, the Sounds. It was on these trips that Cook claimed and named many of the bays and waterways in the Sounds on behalf of the British Monarchy, including; Endeavour Inlet, Resolution Bay, Bay of Many Coves and Queen Charlotte Sound. Ship Cove provided a sheltered and resourceful base for Cook on several of his trips to the area. One could imagine looking around the now well-developed reserve, that his crewmen sick from months at sea would’ve found this as heavenly then as it is now, with the bush coming right down to the water’s edge and soaring high above on the cliff-faces. Now the start/finishing point for the Queen Charlotte Walkway, there are no camping facilities at Ship Cove but well developed picnic and toilet facilities, and for those with an interest in history some informative storyboards recall the area’s history. A fascinating old photo commemorating the Memorial’s unveiling ceremony in 1913 shows a large crowd of dignitaries decked out in their Sunday best – not unlike the sophisticated kayak gear we arrived in nearly 100 years later!

Dutifully obeying his instructions and with my backside now pointing towards an audience, I hesitated only momentarily as my face rapidly approached the seaweed-laiden collapsible craypot strapped to the back deck of Andy’s kayak. But with little choice, I got on with the job in hand while thinking that an expensive seaweed beauty treatment will never be the same again! Soon back in my yellow submarine, we earned a round of applause from the spectator craft. At the very least, my mishap had provided a bit of entertainment on the water that day. The only consolation was that to my knowledge no cameras were rolling!

Back on the water heading towards Bay of Many Coves, the swell was getting choppy and nursing a few aches from the previous day’s outing, I accepted a tow from Andy. If – like me – kayaking is a relatively new sport for you and you’re still getting to grips with life at sea, Andy’s the reassuring leader you want alongside to help you out in times of peril! My best attempts at trying to keep directly behind him as much as possible while surfing on top of a wave certainly took concentration particularly on the fast downward advance, so as not to decapitate him!

Our destination that afternoon to meet our return boat pick-up back to Picton was the lovely Gem Resort in Bay of Many Coves. While I enjoyed camping, this is one place I’ve marked down to come back to for a bit of luxury in the future – and a good base from which to do a few shorter day paddles. Loading the kayaks onto the top of the Endeavour Express catamaran we all felt that there was still lots to explore in the Outer Sounds that would definitely warrant a trip that far again and for longer duration next time. Worth the journey, not only for the opportunity to soak up the relative seclusion and birdlife of the bays and islands, but also to ponder the courage, determination and spirit of explorers such as Cook who were not sporting wetsuits, carbon-fibre paddles or sophisticated GPS’s to assist them with exploring this piece of Paradise.

However a lapse in concentration saw the inevitable happen – with me taking a short swim in the briny followed a spectacular ‘Bridget Jones’ moment’. Like flash lightning the ever capable Andy came to my rescue just as a smart speedboat carrying half-a-dozen immaculately groomed tourists turned to circle us. Simultaneously righting my kayak, Andy yelled at me to pull myself up across

SURFS UP! Hi all, before I start absolutely RAVING about how cool surfing on a kayak is, we need to go back to set the scene of how I once felt about waves and the power they have when you’re sitting on a kayak and they’re coming at you at the speed of light! Well, that’s how it used to seem… As a lot of people know, I’m a fisherman through and through, I take my Cobra ‘Fish ‘n’ Dive’ out all the time. The problem was was that for 3 years I did not venture out to sea for the sake, no....FEAR, of being completely obliterated by huge one-foot waves?! I mean geepers, what if I fell out! If I wanted to fish the outside, I would paddle around Mt Maunganui to fish behind Rabbit island which is about a 6km paddle one way whereas Rabbit Island is 400m straight off the main beach! You do the math! Now, I consider myself to be a pretty good chap with a good head on my shoulders but then I have my dumb points. Welcome all to one of them! So I fished the harbour for 3 long years and got a little tired of kahawai, undersized snapper and paddling against the current so one day I told Steve at Canoe and Kayak Mt Maunganui about my dilemma. That’s when he said, “ Nath, we’re gonna beat that fear, we’re going out in the surf tonight!” And I looked at him, and I froze, right then and there! We headed down to the beach and I asked Steve about 27 times if I was going to be ok. The first few times he replied very seriously, “Yes Nath, you will be fine”. After asking about the 20th time he was up to the ‘laughing profusely’ stage which I guessed meant I’d asked one too many times! So, we hit the beach with our good old ‘Flow’ kayak which just so happens to be an absolute beauty in the surf! You can drive it like it’s a 1976 Hillman Hunter if you want to or you can take the beast by the reins like it’s a BMW Z4 convertible on steroids with power steering and flames billowing out from the twin exhausts! Woohoo! Sorry, carried away in the moment, surfing does that. Steve gave me a basic lesson on the beach about where to catch the wave (and where not to), what the kayak might do once on the wave and how to control the kayak on the wave and stay on it. Hopefully. I headed out and caught the first wave back in and oh man, was it fun. It was like a movie in slow motion, everything just seemed to stop while I was on

that wave, everything so quiet and yet the adrenalin was racing. So much so that I’d forgotten absolutely everything Steve had told me on the beach. The kayak started to turn. I could feel the look on my face turn from a big smile to an anticipated look of ‘whatever happens next isn’t going to be good, I just know this!’ Come on people, you know the look. Like when you come around a corner and there’s your dog standing there with your favourite Nike sneaker in its mouth and you just know what happens next! So I had that look, and then the slow motion starting speeding up and that was it. Off I came. The monster 2-foot wave had claimed me. However, I came out of the water, so Steve tells me, with the biggest smile since….oh, I’d better say it, since meeting my lady. (Use that line guys, you’ll get dinner cooked for a week!) Steve and I hit the waves for around 2 hours that night, it was the most fun I think I’ve ever had. I once asked a board surfer what it was like to surf and he replied “Mate, you can’t explain it, it’s just a different world on the waves”. I think now I know what that fellow meant. I could talk all day about the thrill and excitement that kayak surfing can give you, but instead, I wont, I will merely say give it a go and you’ll see for yourself. It really is great fun. Since kayaking the mighty Flow on 2-foot waves, I’ve stepped up to the Cobra ‘Strike’, a more manoeuvrable kayak with a little more practice required to stay on it, but once you’re on it, it’s ALIVE! It can surf on an angle down the face of a wave and then you can cut it back and surf the other direction. It turns on a dime which is ideal for setting yourself up for a wave that you may want to catch at the last minute. On all surfing kayaks, there a few aids to help in all the fun but a must is to have a set of thigh straps and a good idea of how to execute a ‘low brace’ if the kayak should broach whilst on the wave. I remember I caught a wave over 2metres high out by Rabbit Island and it broke when I was side on! Now that’s a big wave to break on anyone when they’re side on but I didn’t have time to straighten on this particular day. I low braced and was pushed sideways all the way into the beach which must have looked completely stupid and out of control to the swimmers. The Strike can actually be straightened up once broaching but I thought I’d test my low brace. For 400 metres! We now have a group of around 20 people who come out when the surf is up


and they range from kayak fisherman, sea kayakers, surf kayakers and white water paddlers. The group watches out for everyone and we have more fun than you can poke a paddle at. The irony of this story though is that I just want the waves to get bigger and don’t tend to bother with the 2 footers now. Quite a change from the ‘old’ me. It has been amazing for my self-confidence and has been an incredible way

to meet new friends. I strongly recommend, with a ‘buddy’ on the water, that you give it a go! And don’t forget, talk to your local Canoe and Kayak outlet for a few hints and tips in this field, I’m certain they can help. Tight lines and huge surf. Nath.

exams to get out of the way so not much time for practice runs. The SEALINK ferry leaves Auckland at 5.00 pm on Friday and our plans were to catch the ferry back from Port Fitzroy on the Tuesday. A helpful friend dropped us through the rush traffic. Kayaks carried on board and we were on our way. Our split paddle was unfinished but some help from Canoe and Kayak Manukau, epoxy and the 4 ½ hour ferry allowed the essential equipment to be finalised. Dumped on the wharf at Typhena on the South West tip of the island in the dark,

Campsite near Miners Head, waiting for wet gear to dry before starting the day.

Forecast was good, less than 10 knots and 0.5 swells. Great Barrier has a manned (actually a female) VHF radio station. We put in a ‘trip plan’ each morning as cell phone coverage was patchy. Ooops, on the beach but no fresh water. Not like a river trip, finding fresh water required some planning. All the DOC campsites have fresh water that we purified with tablets. A friendly boatie topped our drink systems and finally we were off. After an hour we were rounding the southern tip of Cape Barrier in perfect conditions. The teenagers explored any interesting caves or narrow gaps in the rocks. I tried the fishing but no luck. We needed to achieve about 30km each day, split into three sessions of about 2 hrs. Late lunch on Kaitoke Beach, beautiful white sand for 4 kilometres. Had a swim here and I had a second one relaunching. Topped up the water systems at Awana Bay, seeing dolphins nearby.


Forecast NW rising to 15 knots but then dropping again. Sheltered paddling inside Arid Island to Whangapoua Beach. There is a large lagoon here and the bar was good for surfing the kayaks. Lunch on the beach then 2 hr slog into the head wind to a small cove at the top of the island. The North Western top of the island has high bluffs and no landing spots for 8 km. A narrow gap in the rocks and tunnel gave access to the western coast. Rough conditions in swell rebounding off the bluffs made for tricky paddling for a couple of hours. Landed on the first beach south of Miners Head for the night. The eastern beaches on Great Barrier are free from rubbish but the western beaches are littered with plastic. Useful additions to the camping gear were found, clothes pegs, buckets, beach balls, rope and plastic trays. Strange how the 3 man tent gets smaller each night. It rained overnight but was clear and calm. No VHF coverage so we paddled for an hour and called in the report. Tim’s back and hand were hurting so he swapped to a lightweight wing paddle, which seemed to help. Flat calm conditions allowed time to work on paddling technique as we hopped from headland to headland down the western shore. We stopped at Cliff Island for lunch and found an abandoned campsite at the top. Amazing views here but no water. Some sprint sessions seemed to prove that weight and kayak length make a big difference. How come I was allocated all the communal equipment? Last day dawned wet and calm. Having passed port Fitzroy we needed to catch the freight ferry by midday at Tryphena for the trip to be complete. Dolphins in the bay slowed us up for a while but then reluctantly we set off for the last 10km. This was a great trip and worth the 4 days of dried food. The freight ferry stops in Fitzroy to discharge cargo allowing time for a hamburger and chips at the wharf burger bar. This coast is obviously very subject to weather conditions except in the more sheltered Port Fitzroy area. Full emergency equipment is essential. Thanks Tim and Luke for a great trip. Luke paddled a Tui, Tim a Sequel and John an Ecobezhig.

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 NZKI Award Scheme is structured around the assessment of skills and knowledge that are required for the type of activity to be undertaken by the Instructor or Guide. A star is awarded for each level achieved, starting off with the NZKI One Star for personal paddling skills and knowledge and moving up to the NZKI Five Star for an Assessor.

Waiheke Island, Labour Weekend by Mark Robbins 10k’s out of New Plymouth, 5 of us in the van with trailer in tow, finally on our way to a much anticipated 3-day paddle around Waiheke Island, and my cellphone rings - it’s Bronnie from Canoe & Kayak: “You forgot Kylie!” “What! Anyone know Kylie was coming?” Blank faces. Anyway, turn around, back to the shop, pickup Kylie & gear, out to Waitara for another pickup (“we’ll squeeze this gear in somewhere”) and finally on our way again by 5.30. Not a great start, but the rest of the trip to Auckland went smoothly, finally arriving at Omana Beach (Maraetai) around 10:30p.m. Through all the padlocked gates, we found the other van and familiar tents, pulled out the tents & gear, and got as much sleep as possible before an early start Saturday morning. Wake-up call was sometime around 6am (or was it 5:30??), quick breakfast, down tents & pack-up gear. Both vans and 1 car had to catch the ferry to Waiheke Island by 8am. The drivers, with a few others who had decided not to paddle, headed off with their boats on the trailer, while the rest of us started hauling our kayaks down the short track to Kelly’s beach. And the big question - what was the weather like for our 7km open-water crossing to the island? Something quite new to many of us - fog! The sea was so smooth, the only waves confronting us were from a few passing boats, which were going very slowly anyway because of the conditions. Compasses out, flags up (those who had them), set a bearing of 350°, and headed off into the mist. I soon realised how easy it would be to go around in circles without a compass with no land in sight. Landfall was made after an hour or so, and we headed past Putiki Bay, Kennedy Point and over to Backpool Beach. Here we met up with the rest of the group, along with Jenny and Ross who had come over the day before, making 18 kayaks in total.

Carrying on around the bays, the weather stayed kind to us. A slight chop and light winds. We dashed across Matiatia Bay between the ferries and other launches, and then enjoyed the paddle around the rocky coastline to Oneroa Bay. Brendon, as usual, led the way, sniffing out every nook and cranny, looking for a cave or gap in the rocks to sneak through (plenty of those!). Fortunately there is no surf at the beach to speak of. So we all made a safe landing and took a well earned break, most of us having been on the water for 6 hours or so. Originally, the plan was for the drivers to walk the fairly short distance over the island back to Blackpool Beach, drive the two vans back to Oneroa, load up all the kayaks and head to the camp at Rocky Bay. The suggestion was made to carry on to Onetangi, another 6km or so. So it was back on the water for about 10 paddlers, paddling on to Onetangi, where the vans picked us up. The wind was getting up by this time, making the last paddle into the bay a bit more of a challenge to finish the day. Even the road trip back wasn't uneventful, with top navigators in van 2 driving straight past van 1 waiting at the signposted turn-off to Whakanewha Bay reserve. So van 1 duly followed van 2, assuming they knew where they are going, only to be led on a sight-seeing drive around some very narrow and tight bends of the Omiha residential area, before eventually returning to the turnoff. Anyway, we made it to a very nice camping area, set up tents and Jenny’s gazebo, the latter becoming the dining room. It has mesh all around and proved invaluable as there is no large shelter at the reserve - thanks Jenny. Tea was the usual very social affair, with a huge pot of Ken’s best mince and boiled rice (or was that the

The fog had lifted by this time, so it was a nice easy paddle around the western end of the island. One particular bay Joanna won't forget in a hurry. Paddling in a group, just off the beach, suddenly a large seal came up from nowhere and pushed its nose onto the deck of her kayak. Over went Joanna and it was time for a rescue. Now what a photo that would have been! We stopped at a lovely beach for lunch soon after Te Miro, I think, to get a bit of circulation back into the old backsides!

next night?), plenty of wine, beer and even dessert! We even had fresh Kahawai, thanks to Jamie and Peter H. We were quite spoilt as all our gear and food had stayed in the vehicles and we were not restricted to what we could carry in the boats. Sunday morning was another fine day, so we took our day supplies and headed back to Onetangi Bay. We managed to squeeze the vans & trailers onto the narrow grass verge without totally blocking the road, unloaded and set off in a NE direction around the coast. Those who thought the conditions might be a bit challenging or were carrying injuries went into town for a coffee, and eventually over to Man o’ War Bay on the east side of the island. Here they launched their boats and headed back around the island, past Pakatoa Island, to meet us. Meantime, the main group was met with a steady northerly breeze and chop of 1/2 m or so, but little swell. Although these conditions were at times, significantly more challenging than the previous day, we all coped really well and it was great experience for the newer paddlers. There are plenty of rocks and even a few good caves to go exploring around. Given some good weather, this is a marvellous piece of coastline to paddle around, especially if you keep right in amongst the rocks and take a few chances! After our first break, Peter picked up a warning on his vhf radio of a possible squall approaching. It built up a bit of anticipation amongst the group! Fortunately it never eventuated, and we made it to Thumb Point without any significant change in weather conditions (just a bit windier). The call came from Peter – “who’s coming out to that island with me?” So the majority of the group headed off straight into a 10 knot wind and 1m swell to visit the gannets on Horohoro Rock. Those big white


patches visible from Waiheke turned out to be 100’s of nesting gannets. Lunch was in the shelter of Hooks Bay, after which we headed off around the eastern end of the island. We explored nearly every nook and cranny around this coast and eventually met up with the other group north of Pakatoa Island. What a difference it was coming around that last point - from a rocky, wilderness-like coast with a following swell, to calm waters with large motor launches, yachts and civilization all around us. From here it was a long open paddle to Man o’ War Bay, and load the boats onto the trailers. Time was getting on, but we wanted to visit Stony Batter on the way back. This is a once secret military site on the hills at the eastern end of the island. Built just prior to WWII, it is one of two defensive gun emplacements intended to protect Auckland and the Hauraki Gulf from Japanese invasion. The other site is on the mainland, north of Auckland. Stony Batter consisted essentially of three huge cannons, set well down into the ground, with an incredible underground network of concrete-lined tunnels and rooms for communication and supply. We were very fortunate, despite turning up at closing time, to get a full tour of the tunnels open to the public - a fascinating experience, and one not to be missed if you have the chance (despite us having to walk back along the track in the pouring rain!). The story behind the restoration is almost as interesting as the story of its construction. We had plenty more rain during the night, and Sunday morning was very wet and quite windy. The aim was to get to the sandbank at Te Matuka bay on the SE corner of Waiheke Island, so we transported the short distance to Woodside Bay and paddled from there. It was certainly quite windy (from north) and choppy going across some of those bays, but a good physical challenge for us all. The

sandbar itself was decidedly unspectacular, but it made a good destination. Heading back across the bay was great - finally a tail wind! But it was too good to last. The wind seemed to swing around to the NW and the remainder of the bays meant more battling into head and cross winds, with some showers thrown in for luck! Fortunately we all made it back to Woodside Bay safely - cold, wet and exhausted, but all quite glad of the experience and the added confidence that gives. Still raining, we loaded up the kayaks and headed back to camp. We had an hour or so to finish packing up and get to the car ferry on Kennedy Point. At the terminal we had to back each van & trailer on to the ferry, keeping to the left of the painted line on one side & not hitting any vehicles on the other. Not a task I want to repeat

for quite a while! The trip back to the mainland was uneventful but relaxing, even with the odd swell. At Halfmoon Bay we re-organized vehicles, and headed home. We eventually made it to the motorway (in the pouring rain!) with only one detour - navigator Brendon leading both vans on a short tour of an enclave where a few of the more well-off Aucklanders live! Dinner stop at Wheels (Te Kuiti) , then on to New Plymouth and drop everyone off. All-in-all, a most successful trip, and one I’m sure, all who were lucky enough to be part of, will never forget. A big thanks to Peter & Bronnie for the great organization, commiserations to Bronnie who drew the short straw & had to stay behind! and everyone else who helped out.

Somes Island

By Nick Baty

I got a call from my good mate, and kayaking buddy Cameron on the morning of Wednesday, 3rd January, with the words all dedicated kayakers long to hear: “I’m calling the shop (Wellington’s Canoe and Kayak Centre) to see if we can get a paddle organized for tomorrow night after work. Are you keen?” My response was, “Does the sun rise each morning?” So after a few hurried e-mails and calls between the shop, me and other Wellington Yakity Yak members, it all seemed sorted. We were very lucky with the weather for this trip. Up until the day before Wellington had been having gale-force freezing southerly winds and rain for about a week. Thursday dawned clear, fine, hot, and with less than 10 knots of wind. Frankly, I really wasn’t interested in work that day; rather, I was thinking of the paddle we were going to have after work that night. Lo and behold, when we arrived at the shop, it seemed our idea had generated more interest than we anticipated - Andy presented a list of all who were coming - and the associated kayaks they needed to be loaded on the trailer to be brought down to the Petone Wharf. Andy’s smile seemed to say, “Be careful what you wish for when organizing a kayaking trip”. We eventually got the kayaks loaded and all traipsed down to Petone Wharf and proceeded to gather a small crowd of onlookers who must have thought a bunch of seals had escaped from the aquarium. They watched as we all zipped into our wetsuits and prepared our kayaks for the trip. We duly set off at about 6:15pm, after a trip safety briefing. Our intention was to carry out a passage to, and a circumnavigation of, Somes (Motiu) Island, which lies in the middle of Wellington harbour. Andy began by undertaking his customary roll, just to make sure everything was good and wet. We slowly dawdled out to Somes, which gave us an opportunity to take in the coastline, and land/cityscape that is Wellington. It really brought home to us how different

(and better) everything looks from a kayak, and how therapeutic kayaking can be. The two fibreglass boats zipped in and out of the fleet, while the other kayaks congregated around the doubles. We reached Somes Island after around 20 minutes, and all pulled up on shore for some pineapple lumps, and the contents of many thermoses. After relaxing there for a period, we circumnavigated Somes Island. As Somes Island is a DoC wildlife reserve and kayaks are so quiet (apart from their occupants), we were able to observe the island’s inhabitants without disturbing them - this included Andy finding a penguin in a cave down on the water line, which he was able to paddle right up to. Probably the highlight of the trip was fish leaping out of the water around our little kayak flotilla. The water seemed to boil with the number of fish jumping. It was absolutely amazing to watch. Cameron complained the fish were taunting him, as this trip was the one time he had left his fishing rod at home thinking he was not going to need it. As an alternative, he suggested ‘kawhai cricket’ with kayak paddles. Perhaps attempting to flip the fish out of the water with a paddle could catch on as a new fishing method? As we rounded Somes and began our paddle home, the sun set over the back of Wellington City. The whole harbour and city were bathed in soft pink and orange light. The best thing about this effect was when I looked ahead all I could see was a bunch of kayaks silhouetted black by the setting sun, a perfect picture of man in harmonisation with nature. On the way back a slight chop grew from a gentle northerly, which made a trip back a bit more fun. Several attempts were also made on our trip home to prove that a double kayak is always faster than a single- although in this case, the double was a plastic boat, and the single was a fibreglass multi-sport boat. Needless to say, the ‘races’ were fairly even. When we got back to shore around 9:15pm, the sun finally disappeared below the horizon, so we timed it just right. After pitching in to help load the kayaks back on the trailer again, we all agreed the evening’s paddle was a fine way to begin 2007, and an excellent way to spend a summer’s evening- kayaking out with friends.


Sea-kayak Fiji’s wild side: Kadavu Island Each day of the week a 45-minute flight connects Fiji’s Nadi International Airport with remote Kadavu Island. Once there, travellers find an environment quite unlike most other tourist destinations throughout the Pacific.

What Kadavu Island offers is simple, natural Pacific beauty.

No large resorts, golf courses, restaurants or nightclubs; no jet ski’s or busy boat lanes; no large towns or paved roads; not even a single swimming pool!

A small number of eco-lodges and dive resorts provide accommodation and scuba-diving packages for travellers from around the world.

Kadavu (pronounced: Kan-da-vu) is surrounded by the Great Astrolabe Reef , one of the largest coral reefs in the world. Within the reef lie many uninhabited islets, lagoons, bays and beaches. The main island is mountainous, and still with 75% of the original rainforest cover intact.

It’s in this pristine environment that New Zealand adventure travel company Tamarillo Tropical Expeditions leads sea-kayaking tours. Expedition options range from leisurely 5-day resort-toresort adventures, to challenging 10-day circumnavigations of the entire island. As well as sea-kayaking, Tamarillo Tropical Expeditions include snorkelling in marine reserves, visits and overnight stays in small resorts and traditional villages, treks to waterfalls within the rainforest, and time to relax on quiet, undeveloped beaches. Discounts apply to the following departures: April 9-13; April 15-21; April 22-28; April 27-May 3.

24 hours. 100-150 kilometres. $5000 by Liz Smith

“What an incredibly awesome day” I remember thinking that evening as I sat on my deck sipping a cold beer…. I had just completed my first day on the sea kayaking skills course run by Andy through Wellington Canoe and Kayak, and I was hooked! Gidday, I’m Liz Smith, and 6 months ago I discovered sea kayaking. Now I’m a hugely passionate paddler, out on the water every chance I get. I’m a Yakity Yak member of the super fun and active club in Wellington, and thoroughly enjoy their trips and events. Now I’ve taken my passion for this sport to a new level, all in aid of a good cause. On February 17-18th I sea kayaked 24 hours through the day and night to raise money for the CANCER SOCIETY. Covering a distance of approximately 150km. That is equivalent to 3 1/2 marathons or 5 times across the Cook Strait. This wasn’t an event; it is something I decided to do to raise money for cancer research, in memory of my mother who passed away from this illness when I was 9 years old. I completed this challenge in Porirua Harbour, 20km north of Wellington. Starting at 4pm, I excitedly jumped into my kayak and started weaving my way around the harbour, contemplating the 24 hours that lie ahead. I had a support crew based at the boat club right on the water’s edge, and much to my delight Yakity Yak club members and friends came out to join me paddling throughout the day (along with a few super keen ones at night!) I stopped for a few minutes every 3 to 4 hours to have that much needed loo stop, regain some circulation and replenish my food supplies. The support I have received has been amazing, to date I have raised $6375, and every day that figure grows. I have had fantastic support from local businesses donating items for auctions and raffles, and was absolutely blown out the water when Jim at Canoe and Kayak here in Wellington donated a brand new Shearwater sea kayak for me to use for the 24 hour paddle then to auction it off afterwards “Thanks a million Jim – you’re a legend” I even had Sir Edmund Hillary onboard - he gave me a signed $5 notes to auction. Training was a lot of fun, even in the challenging days of “Wellington winds gusting to 40 knots” I saw stingrays, a penguin, friendly fish – they could sense I had no rod! starfish, and even a shark! (Yes, I did have to change my undies after that one – even though he was only a baby). Congratulations Liz on completing your personal challenge.

A Paddle with the School

by George Lockyer

December 2006

Governors Bay is a mere fifteen minute drive over the Port Hills from the garden city of Christchurch but it feels like a rural heaven a million miles away. A regular event on the Governors Bay School calendar is the yachting and kayaking day at Charteris Bay Yacht Club. We were very fortunate with the weather. After a decidedly shaky start, summer had finally arrived with a calm day and predicted temperatures in the mid to high 20’s. Just after nine, the kids waved goodbye to lessons, and parents and teachers headed off in various forms of transport on the 15 minute drive round the bay towards Diamond Harbour. Charteris Bay is ideal for learners, nestled and protected as it is at the southern end of Lyttelton Harbour (Whakaraupo). I was in charge of the kayakers, while other volunteers and teachers taught sailing, rowing and survival skills. It’s mid-morning and I sit in my Tui, gently bobbing on the slight swell as the first group of eight enters the water via the wooden slipway. We paddle towards the beach about 200 metres away.

collection of two metre Optimists, with their multi-coloured sails bright in the sunshine. The rescue boat, supplied by parents circles them, ready to nip in if required. On the end of the jetty, the survival class is taking place. Kids in a rubber dinghy very reluctantly capsize themselves then swim together as a group with their lifejackets on towards a float which represents a rescue boat. Another parent kindly provided their boat, which they used to ferry groups out towards Quail Island for a close up look at a pod of Hectors dolphins with some young ones among them, these proved very popular with the kids. A rumour goes round that a large manta ray has been spotted causes a stir of excitement. After a quick bite of lunch I’m back on the water with an older group practising a few basic turning maneuvers, and playing ball tag with a water polo ball. I ask the kids not to be over zealous with their throw or they’d lose balance and end up in the drink.

The skill and experience levels varied between the kids so I just start from scratch with basic paddling, emphasizing the importance of holding the paddle in the middle, shoulder width apart, having them practise in the air and then watching the blade all the way into the water.

We also have the use of an old fashioned looking cutter lent to us from Lyttelton Sea Scouts. It passes by now, the kids rowing in time like little galley slaves.

We’re paddling across the flooded bowl of an extinct volcano which blew its top, geologists tell us, 12 million years ago in the Miocene, forming Lyttelton and Akaroa Harbours.

It usually gets a bit choppier in the afternoon on the harbour and today is no exception. So it’s no great surprise when a boy in our final group capsizes on

the way to the beach. Because we never use spray skirts, as Eskimo rolling would be far too advanced for the kids, he slid out of the cockpit easily. The lad finds it amusing and assures me we don’t need the rescue boat. So I get him to clip my line onto his upturned kayak, put his paddle over mine and he swims beside me as we slowly make our way to the beach. His mates are waiting to give him a hard time! We all paddle back and after a drink we watch the kids squealing and yelling with glee as they indulge in their favourite activity of the day – jetty jumping. We load up and head back to school, tired little vegemites. We all consider ourselves very fortunate to live in such a wonderful part of Aotearoa. The yachting and kayaking day would not be possible without the help of all the parents who volunteer their assistance or the teachers of Governors Bay School who help to give our kids such a good start in life. Finally many thanks to the club Commodore Alister Rowlands for allowing the school to use its excellent facilities. We all look forward to our next day on the water.

On the beach we practise getting in and out of our kayaks, then it’s back on the water to raft up. The next bit is always good for a laugh. We get the two kids on the outside of our raft crawling across the cockpits to swap kayaks. I try to emphasize the trust element, where the kids crossing the raft have to trust the others forming the raft to keep it steady for them. This results in some hilarious moments and inevitably a dip in the sea for one girl, who after a bit of a struggle is soon back smiling in her cockpit. We then have a couple of races around a buoy and back, swapping the slower kayaks over. We have two ‘dancers’ best suited for rivers and it’s interesting to note how much better the one fitted with a skeg behaves. I look back towards the yacht club and see the

Kayak Club Proudly Supported by Your Local

Now you say “They must charge for each club trip”. My friend you would be wrong. There is no participation charge for club trips.

but we know you will find a bunch of like minded mates to enjoy our wonderful little paddling paradise.

The Yakity Yak Kayak Club was set up by a bunch of enthusiastic instructors. After spending much time teaching people how to paddle we found a few months later that they had not carried on with paddling. They said there was no one to paddle with, or they were a bit shy, or they did not have a boat, or they lacked confidence to go on trips where they did not know the area or the people.

So get on the phone to one of the Canoe & Kayak Centres (see advert on the back page) and join the Yakity Yak Kayak Club. You will be welcome.

So we said enough is enough and the Yakity Yak Kayak Club was formed.

Welcome aboard Peter Townend One of the founding Yakers

We cannot guarantee you will get on like a house on fire with every club member

Kayaking the Pelorus

by Darren Ashmore

Jenny and I joined KR and Mary who were camped at Pelorus Bridge, just out of Havelock, for the weekend even though the forecast was not good. Things did not get off to a good start. We were supposed to be heading out on Friday evening but a thunder storm put Jenny off and we postponed our departure until Saturday morning. Time to pack the camper. Bugger a flat tyre. This delayed things further but we finally got under way and arrived up at Pelorus Bridge camp ground about 10am. Set up camp next to KR and had a cuppa and discussed the idea of a trip down river to Daltons Bridge. I estimated that the journey should take us about an hour and the girls could pick us up at the bridge. This was to be the first time that KR had experienced running rapids so he was understandably a bit apprehensive. I assured him that they were only small rapids, not too fast and nothing too scary. Some would be very shallow and he may get stuck. I had not been down this stretch of the river but there was not a big flow and from the bits I had seen from the road on the way up it was going to be a nice paddle for a novice. The only down side was that it looked like it was going to clagg in and rain. However, we drove to the riverside and geared up, with a heap of advice from the ladies, and started our journey from a very pretty little pool with clear clean water. This was easy with a gentle current gliding us down to our first rapid. We slipped over this like a couple of professionals. “Hey” says KR with a huge smile, “that was great”. This was the first of quite a number that were just big enough to give us a buzz. Then we struck a real shallow rapid. I managed to slip over it ok and then turned round and paddled back up to take a photo of KR stuck fast in the shallows. He was using his hands to push himself along. For some strange reason he called me rude names after I had given him a bit of good advice. I only suggested that most people use the paddles to propel a kayak etc. Once unstuck we continued with our very pleasant and picturesque voyage. We saw the girls drive by to the pickup point and 15 minutes later we joined them. I was only just over ten minutes longer than I estimated the journey would take. We landed on a beach just above Daltons Bridge and were going to pull the boats out there. But the girls were on the bridge waving us to continue on down. We did this and they told us that there was a small beach where we could get out. “A few blackberries to fight through but it was not bad” they said. Well the beach sure was small. A wee muddy bank dropped off into a hole we could not see the bottom off. KR said “I’ll never get out there”. “Sure you can” I said. “Just follow my lead, one day you may need to know how to do this”. So I pulled alongside, slid my butt out on to the bank and climbed up, no trouble. Hooked out the kayak and passed it up to the girls. We then got KR alongside and

he got ashore without much of a struggle. Another achievement for the day. Then came the blackberries. This was a bit of a battle and I believe that next time we will definitely use the large shingle beach above the bridge and carry the kayaks through an easy grassy paddock. Still it all added to the adventure. The trip took about an hour and a half all up. When time allows we will explore further downstream. So it was back to camp for a glass of red wine, a few tall stories and a very mellow evening. Sunday morning. It was drizzling so we started the day with a brisk stroll up to the waterfalls and back. This filled in an hour or so. Coffee break at Pelorus Café, which has delicious pies, cakes etc and promptly put back all the calories that we had just shed. From here KR and I decided to put the kayaks in where we started yesterday and paddle upstream to the Pelorus Bridge. This was an extremely pretty paddle through a huge deep hole then up either the Pelorus or Rai rivers. KR chose to take on the Rai first and run under the swing bridge. I was taking photos and he got ahead of me around the bend out of sight. By the time I came round the corner he was just climbing up on a rock beside the river. As I closed in I saw the he was wet all over. He had managed to tip himself out! How or why I don’t know but he said that he went to hold on to a rock while looking behind to see where I was. Next thing he was in the tide. “Well” I said, “did the life jacket work ok?” “I don’t know” he said “I was too busy walking on the water and getting up on dry land”. Unfortunately his glasses went into that big deep hole somewhere along with a bit of pride. Once we had got the water out of the boat and KR back in we headed back down the Rai and round into the Pelorus river and paddled up under the bridge to the rapid. I couldn’t resist having a go at paddling up it, but it beat me. So I portaged the Tui over the stones so I could ride it down. That was a neat wee buzz. By this time KR was cooling down and keen to head out for some dry gear. So we cruised back to the car and the camp for a lunch break. The Pelorus Bridge camping ground is a very pretty little camp with good facilities, hot showers, etc, and only $10 a night per person. An added bonus is the very nice café at the entrance to the grounds. So as the rain started Jenny and I packed up and headed home leaving KR and Mary to enjoy another night and day in this neat little spot which is only just over half an hour from home.

Ruahine Kayaks are pleased to introduce the new “Gladiator”. This fast, stable kayak is designed for the larger paddler looking for a longer, stable boat.

The 25th Anniversary Speight’s Coast to Coast was an absolute ripper! Unveiling the monuments at Kumara Beach in front of 23 original competitors and 14 officials was a moment to be treasured. Watching 11 of those originals cross the finish line again at Sumner beach 25 years later was thrilling. I am so proud of everyone who has completed my event over the last 25 years but I’m especially fond of “the originals”. See you next year. Regards Robin Judkins

25 Years On In February 1983, when Robin Judkins sent 79 endurance junkies racing from Kumara Beach on the West Coast across the Southern Alps to Sumner Beach near Christchurch, he hadn’t an inkling that the event he’d dreamed up would be such a huge success. He knew it would appeal to some people, and he knew the challenge was a cracker. “But really,” he said at this year’s 25th anniversary, “I thought I would organize it for perhaps two or three or four years.” The race, of course, was the Speight’s Coast to Coast and from an inauspicious beginning and near bankruptcy the Coast to Coast created a whole new sport. It became New Zealand’s icon endurance event. Fittingly, this year’s 25th anniversary of the 243k race across the South Island attracted a record field and some of the best racing ever. Auckland’s Gordon Walker had a lot to prove when he lined up for the 25th Speight’s Coast to Coast. The anniversary of New Zealand’s icon endurance event wasn’t his motivation. After five attempts, he had a feeling that this year was going to be make or break. With a baby on the way and a life to lead, if he didn’t win this one it was probably time to move on. That kind of motivation creates a lot of pressure. But nothing like the pressure Nelson’s Richard Ussher must have felt when he lined up for what pundits were tipping would be his third straight Coast to Coast victory. The world adventure racing and multisport champion had enjoyed his best ever build up for the Coast to Coast and his international record of late was a powerful mental edge over his competitors. But in the end it was more about who wanted it most.

was probably a defining change in my mindset. I just thought, I’ve got to want it. I’ve got to go out there and make it happen.” And that’s exactly what Walker did, after a brief scare from 2004 winner George Christison. Christison had been one of several contenders who missed the early breakaway. But on the run Walker churned through the field, recording the fastest run and then a strong ride on the short 15k stint to kayaks to start the 67k paddle down the Waimakariri River in third place. Having reduced a nine-minute deficit to five minutes, Christison was pumped. He tore down the river to catch Walker and Ussher after just 90min. “It was incredible,” said Ussher. “For about 10min all three of us were paddling side by side waiting to see what would happen.” First Ussher finally fell apart, then Christison showed the effects of his fast start on the river. Halfway down the river, Gordon Walker was in front and going away. With the 70k ride, his specialty, still to come Walker was never going to be headed. With his confidence rising every minute the 34-year-old former cyclist kept pulling away all the way to Sumner Beach, eventually winning by 19min in 11hrs 39min 30secs. Finishing with a huge grin, arms pumping above his head and his huge group of supporters and family chanting, Jaffa, Jaffa, Jaffa…” Walker became the first Aucklander to win the Speight’s Coast to Coast. The overjoyed winner put his greatest day down to exactly that: “I am a good biker, paddler and runner and I always thought that if I put it all together then I thought I could win,” he said of his fifth time lucky at the Coast to Coast. After Neil Jones in 1996 and Christison in 2004, Walker was only the third North Islander to taste victory in the race across the South Island. But in something of a changing of the guard, behind him training partners Gordon Blythen (Matakana), Farley (Mt Maunganui), and Christison (Napier) and Auckland up and comer Carl Bevans swept the top fiveplaces. Defending champion Ussher slumped to 10th. Young guns Prince and Luke Vaughn trailed in sixth and eighth.

Racing against one of the strongest fields ever assembled for the Speight’s Coast to Coast, Walker took the race to the defending champion when he instigated a breakaway on the first cycle leg after less than 5k of the 243k race. Walker and training partner Dwarne Farley had planned an early attack. “I’ve finished second here for the last two years,” said Walker, ”but I’ve always been strong all the way so I thought maybe the way to win was to go a bit harder from the start.” The plan worked perfectly. Only two other riders were able to join Walker and Farley. The only problem was that one was defending champion Richard Ussher and the other was one of the best runners in the race, New Zealand orienteering rep Aaron Prince. The four worked well together and finished the 55k cycle with a massive nine-minute lead over a stunned chase bunch. But when Ussher put together a slicker transition from bike to run to open up almost 60seconds, the race appeared over. In the last two years Richard Ussher has ruled the run, opening up strong leads and then holding on to the finish. He tried the same this year, pushing hard in the early running up the Deception River to Goat Pass. He stretched his lead out to more than 3min as he crested the saddle through a wet cloud cover. But behind him Gordon Walker was starting to smile. Last year he had been almost 10min behind Ussher, but now he was actually starting to close the gap. “I thought then that he (Ussher) might have gone too hard,” said Walker. But Ussher wasn’t giving up. “I knew early in the run that I wasn’t having a great day,” he said later. “But this race is so long that a lot can happen. Sometimes you can bring it back together, so I just kept pushing.” Walker, however, pushed harder.

If Richard Ussher’s demise, and Gordon Walker’s success, was something of a surprise, the women’s race was nothing short of unexpected. In the first few minutes of the mountain run, unheralded Welingtonian Fleur Pawsey hit the front of the women’s field. Everyone was asking the obvious – “Fleur who?” In fact, the 27-year-old government servant is not new to the front of multisport fields. Three times she finished in the top five in the Coast to Coast two-day event and was a close 10th in last year’s Coast to Coast. She came a strong third in October’s Motu Challenge in the Bay of Plenty. But none of that pointed to Pawsey tearing apart a classy field in the 25th anniversary event. The women’s race had been billed as a big clash between Christchurch-based Canadian Emily Miazga and Finnish adventure racing ace Elina Maki-Rautila. These two had been first and second last year and the rematch was much anticipated, with Maki-Rautila being engaged to Richard Ussher, created the potential for the Coast to Coast’s first household double. But the little-known Pawsey ruined the party. When the Wellingtonian led across the Otira River and headed up the Deception Valley ahead of Rautila even she was surprised. “I was looking around waiting for them to pass me,” she said. “But they never came and I just decided to go with it for as long as I could.” That proved the story of the day, as Maki-Rautila tried in vain to stay close, before falling apart to eventually finish fifth. Miazga withdrew halfway through the run with a foot injury. Pawsey said she just couldn’t believe what was happening: “About halfway through the run I started thinking, ‘wouldn’t it be cool if I was first off the run.’ Then halfway through the kayak I was thinking, ‘wouldn’t it be cool if I won.’ Then in the last cycle it was, ‘I can win this. If I can just hold on I can win this.’ When I crossed the line I still couldn’t believe it.”

storms, heat waves, near deaths and more than 15,000 competitors Judkins has seen it all. But he is fascinated by the courage, determination and dedication shown by “normal” people when they tackle his 243k epic across the Alps. While the One Day world title race is the feature event, Judkin’s heart lies with the Two-Day people’s race in which teams and individuals compete more socially for personal goals. The Two Day event, competitors camp over night at Klondyke Corner near Arthur’s Pass, is the original Coast to Coast format. The pre-race camp at Kumara Race Course and overnighter at Klondyke creates the atmosphere that the Coast to Coast is famous for. This year’s two-day race was dominated by Christchurch’s Steve McKinstrey. He was beaten by just a few seconds last year but was totally dominant this time around to win by 12min in 11hrs 50min. The women’s race proved closer. Christchurch’s Penny Willocks came from fourth after the first day to win by 19min in 13hrs 53min. The Christchurch pair of Robert Loveridge and Paul Massie took out the teams event in 11hrs 43min, just 2min ahead of overnight leaders Adrian Bailey (Queenstown) and Sven Bruss (South Africa). The highlight of the Two Day event, however, was the dozen or so originals who returned after 25 years. The fastest of them was 52-year-old Geoff Hunt, who won the Classic over-50 category. In total a record field of more than 900 entrants from 12 countries crossed the country this year. Other entrants from the original 1983 Coast to Coast included former Green MP Mike Ward, who continued his streak as the only person to have completed all 25 Coast to Coasts. Asked if he might be here in another 25 years, the 63 year old smiled wryly and said; “Can’t think of anything else I’d be doing.” Michael Jacques

The most unexpected winner in the history of the Coast to Coast crossed the line shaking her head in disbelief, stopping the clock in 13hrs 29min 14sec. A full 19min behind a torrid battle for the minor placings unfolded as Te Anau’s Sarah Fairmaid and Taumaranui’s Rachel Cashin romped through the kayak and final cycle to pass Maki-Rautila and Taupo’s Amanda Peake. But all this went almost unnoticed as the assembled media, spectators, organizers, sponsors and even Pawsey and her support crew and family stood shaking their heads in bewilderment. However, there isn’t much about the Speight’s Coast to Coast that bewilders Robin Judkins. After a quarter century of financial worries, financial success,

Get 2 Go for young adventurers Last year saw the creation of the Get2Go challenge, the ultimate adventure challenge for year 9 and 10 (13-14 years) students. The Get 2Go is an initiative developed through a partnership between The Sir Edmund Hillary Outdoor Pursuits Centre (OPC) and the Sport and Recreation Commission (SPARC) and in 2006 the pilot event involved schools from the Auckland and Northland regions. The event is designed to inspire and activate young people into New Zealand’s great outdoors and try some activities that they may not have done before. As well as having awesome fun, the teams of eight students would learn valuable teamwork, leadership and outdoor skills for use throughout their lives. Over 350 students took part in four regional days which took place in the Waitakere/North Harbour, Counties Manukau, Northland and Auckland regions. The teams faced four 60min long challenges involving Orienteering, Rock-climbing, Kayaking and Mountain biking. Each task included a problem solving element to be worked through so the team could maximise its score. An important part of the philosophy of the event was to encourage outdoor recreation clubs and organizations to get involved in their local regional day, by organizing and running the challenges. This in turn helped to create valuable links between the students, teachers, schools and the people who provide the outdoor activities within their communities. Canoe and Kayak came on board as the organizers of the kayak based activity on the three regional days held in Auckland. The managers of the three Auckland C & K stores, Rob, Russell and James, devised a cunning raft building activity at Lake Pupuke on the North Shore. The teams were given minimal equipment and had the first 30 minutes of the challenge to design and test their craft, which needed to hold the entire team as they paddled it around a course marked by buoys. The only paddling equipment they were provided with was a single split paddle (joined) which some teams worked out they could split, making their job a whole lot easier.

��� ����������� �������

the new OPC marine base, at Karaka Bay on Great Barrier Island. The 5 day long final started with two intensive days of ten 60min team challenges around the OPC base. The activities included sailing, rock-climbing, orienteering, kayaking, swimming and bridgebuilding among others, each with a significant team problem solving element to overcome. On days three to five the teams were on an expedition that zig-zagged back and forth across the island, up and over Mt Hobson, staying at campsites along the way. The expedition included sections of tricky navigation, coasteering and kayaking and for some, proved to be a few of the hardest days in their lives. Throughout the week points based on team achievement in the task and the level of teamwork demonstrated were scored for the overall title. For the students the week was a life changing experience. Many of them stepped out of their comfort zones to their mental and physical limits. They now have a greater awareness of their own personal boundaries and the knowledge of exactly what they can achieve if they put their mind to it.

������� ������������ ������������������ �������������������� �����������

It is these types of experiences that can only be gained through pushing yourself in an outdoor wilderness environment and for the lucky 80 students involved, will be something that they will remember for the rest of their lives. For the record, Whangarei Boys High started strong and continued to add small amounts to their lead each day to take the inaugural Get2Go title. They were however pushed hard all the way by Whangarei Girls High, Massey High and St Cuthbert’s, who finished 2nd, 3rd and 4th respectively. The feedback from the four regional challenge days and final has been overwhelmingly positive and indicates that this is an event which will continue to grow. Get2Go is aiming high and hopes to go nationwide in the coming years, providing an important chance to get our youth active and out there enjoying New Zealand’s amazing outdoor opportunities.

������������ ���������������� ������������

������������������ �������������������

The activity was a huge success and extremely well organized. A big thanks to the C & K staff and volunteer club members who helped out on each of the days. Following the four Regional Events ten teams were chosen to contest the Get 2 Go Grand Final held at

Australia and Mother by Peter Townend There is never enough time when you find a great place to be on the water. The Murray River in South Australia upstream from a town called Renmark is one of those places. Three days on a houseboat of gargantuan size with two families and a friend proved a perfect way to relax. We set off from Wilkadene Station 15 km from Renmark on a houseboat called Innovations. This amazing boat has four bedrooms, two bathrooms, two indoor and one outdoor lounge and for a small extra fee you can have a kayak or two. The Murray River here is slow moving and very similar to the Waikato River. It meanders at a slow walking pace and is clean with a soft green colour. Lush vegetation and dry dusty areas with old tall gum trees line the riverbanks. Bird life is varied and plentiful and sitting in the bow at breakfast time gives a huge range of birds. Sunsets, sunrises, morning chores, lazy days, paddling with the kids, BBQ’s, wine and beers, “what the beep beep is that?” “Ah the generator has started” and I was sitting almost on top of it.

Kiwi Association of Sea Kayakers N.Z. Inc. (KASK) KASK is a network of sea kayakers throughout New Zealand KASK publishes a 200 page sea kayaking handbook which is free to new members: the handbook contains all you need to know about sea kayaking: techniques and skills, resources, equipment, places to go etc. KASK publishes a bi-monthly newsletter containing trip reports, events, book reviews, technique/equipment reviews and a ‘bugger’ file.

What a fright from absolute wilderness to thumping generator! However not to worry it only goes for 30 minutes in the entire day and was the only negative on the whole trip. If you don’t use the microwave, toaster, dishwasher, washing machine, hair dryer, TV or DVD you won’t even need it that long. For kayakers this is the most luxurious way to explore an area. The ability to paddle into each nook and cranny and back for a hot shower and relax in the comfort of the houseboat, then move to another spot is the most luxurous way to explore an area. Mother Ship paddling rocks! A big thanks to Peter, Tom and Andrew from Wilkadene and Above Renmark House Boats for their help and friendly service. Take a look on www. aboverenmark.com.au or give them a call on 0061 883568708 and have a luxury kayaking trip into the Australian Wilderness of the Murray River The Visitors Book “WOW” what a great way to relax and enjoy the outdoors and spend time with family and friends! I have had a great time- good walks, great swimming- we did every bomb, dive, belly flop, twist, cannon balls, pin drops that we could think of, off the back of the boat. “Do you think I can stay on this boat forever? Please?? Loved it!! Stacey
