Kayaks, bikes flip in wild Raglan weather but race chiefs unfazed

ayaks were flipped in the harbour, several people were blown off their mountain-bikes and riders also faced a complete “white-out” at Te Uku wind farm on the top of the Wharauroa Plateau but organisers of the big ARC adventure race based around Raglan at the weekend were unbothered by it all.

Marshals and roving paramedics were on hand throughout the course, he added, and radio communication kept everyone in the loop. Keith admitted there were “pretty hefty blows” up on Mt Karioi to challenge competitors early on as they trekked from the Te Toto Gorge to the Te Mata side of the mountain. That leg of the race was sandwiched between two mountain-biking stages which saw some competitors blown off their bikes in Some might say it was “a bit reckless” the gusts. Those crashes didn’t faze Keith any to go ahead with the annual event as Cyclone Lusi bore down on the country and locals more than the kayaking capsizes. “Most were warned to batten down the hatches, co- (competitors) will wear battle wounds before organiser Keith Stephenson acknowledged to the finishline,” he quipped, pointing out accidents could equally happen while entrants the Chronicle.

More than 200 endurance junkies came to Raglan to tackle the series of tough land and water-based challenges, in teams mostly of four but also of two and three. None knew the exact course until registration the night before, but all were kitted out with the survival gear they needed for what is known as the adventure of a lifetime. Many of the 100-odd teams involved were made up of secondary school students and they “had a ball”, said Keith who reckoned the conditions were perfect for outdoor education. “It made them a bit more alert, conscious of safety and looking out for each other.” He now wants to encourage them over to Coromandel to enter the North Island Secondary School Adventure Racing Championships in September.

Bigger prize pot adds Take cold swim and help to Art to Wear’s allure warm pool, locals urged

R

aglan’s bridge to bridge harbour swim is on again the weekend after next – and organisers are hoping a good crowd will mean a silver lining. A blue liner for the school pool, to be exact. The Raglan Swimming Club says while last year’s inaugural swim attracted 72 entrants, only a quarter of those were town residents and it’s keen to see more locals turn out on Saturday week for what should be “a really fun day”. Through a series of events from 250 metres up to two kilometres the fledgling club’s looking to raise the final $6000 of the $21,000 cost of pouring a sheet-like lining that will hold the warmth in for longer and extend the swimming season at the 22-metre pool well into autumn. Fundraising committee member Lisa Thomson says the aim is to provide a “much more comfortable learning environment”. Even with the new bubble wrap-like pool cover that was able to be installed as a result of last year’s harbour

he “fantastic” prizes on offer this year could well tempt more young artists about town to enter Raglan’s biennial Art To Wear competition in May and to have fun with fashion, says organiser Jean Carbon. Jean, a fabric artist herself, says creations need not cost a lot or take too much time to make but will put entrants in line for some lucrative awards – thanks to generous sponsorship and a “sizeable” amount of money on offer this time around from Raglan Lions, whose op shop has had a great summer. Besides a supreme award now upped to $1200, the people’s choice award comes for the first time with a $500 cash prize as well as a trophy and there’ll be first, second and third section prizes as well. LJ Hooker have also come onboard as a major sponser this year. Jean believes the local event is at as good a level – financially and creatively – as many other wearable arts competitions in New Zealand, and says having more of the local schools come on board recently has been great. “It’s a wonderful feeling to have that community support.” Raglan Area School excelled itself last time around with its own wearable arts show as a forerunner to the main

event, she explains. Jean now hopes to see local businesses getting their staff working collaboratively on creations, and young artists in town taking the opportunity to create their own original pieces. This year’s ‘Rummage’ section sponsored by Xtreme Zero Waste means entrants can experiment with recycled materials picked up for next to nothing, while the new ‘Over the Top’ section allows for unconventional hat entries. “We felt it (making hats or headpieces) was a clever idea that could be created effectively and quickly,” Jean told the Chronicle, recalling a shark or orca sculpture worn on the head in the past. Then there’s the ‘White Light’ section which will provide a “stunning” effect, Jean promises – the colour white picked up with black light and illuminated. A new advertising poster has also gone with the white theme. Add in a section for ‘Heroes and Icons’ and an under-13 ‘Mahy Mayhem’ section and that ensures there’s something for everyone, says Jean. “Let’s make this wearable arts event the best yet.” E. Symes 2014 Art To Wear will be held in Raglan Town Hall on the last weekend of May, Friday 30 (dress rehearsal) and Saturday 31.

swim, the club’s youngster ranks have swollen from 40ish to more than 90 this summer, she says. “A warmer pool has a real big impact on the people doing lane swimming, who come in consistently on Sunday, Monday and Wednesday evenings,” Lisa adds. “The pool is a great resource for the community and we’re passionate about making it warmer, especially so our children can learn to swim safely.” With a $15,000 grant from the Wel Energy Trust and a small amount from Trust Waikato the liner project is already well on the way, and organisers hope a bigger turnout of locals for this year’s harbour swim will help turn it into a reality. “We’re wanting to attract our local schoolkids in particular along to the harbour swim,” says Lisa. “If they can swim 200 metres they’re all good to go.” Under-13s will swim various distances from the Kopua footbridge towards the boat ramp, while the

1km, 1.5km and 2km open events are based on a course running from the footbridge to the new museum and then on up to the Raglan West traffic bridge (the 2km swimmers go beyond it) before returning to the footbridge. All courses will be marked out by large buoys. Entry fees will range from $510 for under-13s and $10-20 for events from 500 metres up. There’ll be certificates for winners and participants, “amazing” spot prizes and raffles, and harbour swim T-shirts for sale. More FM, which is supporting the swim, will also be there. Late registrations will be taken from 8 to 8.55am, then there’ll be a karakia and race briefing at 9 before the first swim begins at 9.05. Organisers say all events and prizegiving should be completed 12.30ish “just in time for that picnic you packed or fish and chips at Jo’s Kopua Campstore”.

Christie breaks drought under threat of Cyclone Lusi

R a five year drought winning

ichard Christie has broken

the Rip Curl Pro presented by Jagermeister held at Manu Bay, Raglan on Saturday. 

 Under dark skies, gale offshore winds and sideways rain thanks to Cyclone Lusi, Christie surfed his way to a win in the Open Men’s Division in the 1.0m – 1.5m waves that built throughout the day.

 Christie surfed to a 12.34 point heat total in the final, a modest score for the day but indicative of the challenging conditions as Cyclone Lusi ripped through the Waikato with gusts of 40 knots buffeting the waves. Event favourite Billy Stairmand made a shock exit in the semifinals of the Open Men’s Division placing seventh overall. Meanwhile,

Jessica Santorik placed third in the Open Women’s Division. A third consecutive win on the New Zealand Pro Series has seen Whangamata surfer Grace Spiers open up a massive lead on the ratings after her victory in the Open Women’s Division.

Spiers first won the National Championships at Gisborne in January before winning the second event at Whangamata in February and Saturdays win at the Rip Curl Pro.

“Those were some of the most difficult conditions to compete in, you could hardly walk down the rocks let alone surf, on the waves. It was hard to stay low and you couldn’t even hit the top of the wave, bit different for the boys who have a bit more weight but definitely hard for us girls” said Spiers.

 The Rip Curl Pro is contested

over the Open Men’s and Women’s Divisions as well as the Under 20 Men’s Division. The three day event offers $12,000 in prize money spread across the three divisions. Surfing NZ Results: Open Men’s Division Final

Artist has 365 degree view

R is set to host one of its most

aglan’s Old School Arts Centre

ambitious exhibitions at the end of this month.

365 Degrees. A Moment, a Day, a Year,

showcases a year’s worth of photography by Raglan writer and mixed media artist Katherine Parrott. As the name implies that’s 365 photos and yes, every single one of them will be in the show. Katherine started her huge undertaking on 22 March 2013 aiming to capture one moment that summed up each day. She says, “Taking a photograph every day becomes a practice and an intention that works both to help me notice the beauty in every day and to create it. Looking through the viewfinder hones my vision, makes me notice things I would otherwise miss. As a big-picture person, it has helped me see details and tiny snatches of beauty that otherwise may have passed my global brain by. I look back on the images and think I’m so glad I captured that.” Living rurally near Raglan, many of Katherine’s photos feature local landscapes, people and places. Her 365 days will finish just one week before the exhibition opens. She comments, “You end up constantly looking for the moment that will sum up each day: the image that will express what

Scheme completion date has been happening, what I’m feeling or what I have to say. Often, this refers to the so-called small or everyday parts of life. For me, it is about consciously making the ordinary and everyday as beautiful and extraordinary as I can.” No stranger to the world of exhibiting, Katherine is an award-winning quilt maker and has shown her art both nationally and internationally. She has been documenting her 365 project on social media and through her website, where images from each day, along with their respective stories, can be found. 365 Degrees. A Moment, a Day, a Year opens on Friday 28 March, 6.30pm at the Old School Arts Centre on Stewart Street, Raglan. All welcome: live music, canapés and cash bar. The exhibition runs daily until Sunday 13 April, 10am-3pm. For a preview of Katherine’s work, head to her website: www.katherineparrott.com.

The completion date of Whaanga Coast’s new wastewater system has been pushed back to May allowing existing property owners extra time to join the scheme. Contractors Spartan Construction have installed nearly three quarters of the main sewer line along Wainui Road and Upper Wainui Road, and are nearing completion of the booster pump station adjacent to Manu Bay Reserve. Waikato District Council General Manager Service Delivery Tim Harty says he’s pleased with the work that has been completed to date however a couple of issues have slowed the work temporarily. “The project was scheduled for March completion however we’ve experienced a couple of setbacks including product delays and the need to finalise discussions with a group of property owners. To date, 70 residential and two commercial properties have signed up to the scheme two thirds of those connections are now installed and one system (the new kindergarten) is up and running.” He says the delay does have a positive spinoff for property owners still considering whether or not to join the scheme. “If they (existing property owners) join the scheme before construction ends, they’re eligible for a subsidised connection price.”

YOT Club’s guide to weekend

T

onight (Thursday 20 March) we have Renee Coffey doing the Raglan part of her North Island Roadie Tour. Renee is a Wellington based musician who is quickly making a name for herself with her reflective soulful songwriting and guitar work. Check her out on you tube particularly her epic take on Hallelulah. Friday we have local superstar djs and men about town Reuben and Dylan Brown aka the Brown Brothers bring their Party Rocking beats to the Yot Club. Always a busy night, this is well worth checking out. On Saturday we have Bulletproof (Aka Jay Cyanide) in the club. Having collaborated with the likes of Pendulum, Concord Dawn, The Upbeats, DJ Optiv (C4C), Mayhem, State of Mind and Agent Alvin Bulletproof have proved he is a name amongst THE names and undoubtedly one of the finest D&B talents to emerge from the Southern Hemisphere. And on Sunday…DJ VADIM Sunday Session - March 23rd .. did we just say DJ Vadim?. You heard it! With only 2 Sunday Sessions left for the Summer; this one is lining up to be yet an other highlight! “Jamin-i Presents” the biggest International name to visit the Yot Club yard yet - DJ Vadim is a veteran producer and Dj. He’s been in the scene for close to 20 years and has toured the world

across more than 60 countries. To describe the man as an internationalist almost seems to sell him short. A guy of this calibre playing in a village our size just can’t be missed! With such a wide range of music, you can catch him this Sunday playing both in the yard and in the club. Also to top it up; we are treated with the support of “The Uplifter”a DJ/percussionist straight from UK also on a NZ Tour. Sunday Session Free from 4.20pm $10 after 8.30pm (so if you’re clever; then come early!) Open every day from midday (late nights from Wednesday ‘til Sunday) with free wifi, free pool, cheap drinks, great music, yummy pizza and many other food options - come check out our menu!
