This weather reminds me of buildingmy first Kayak in the third form. It was a woodworking class project, cutting out plywoodshapes to support the Kaihikatea stringers,stretching the canvas and finishing with topquality painting (left over house paint, leadbased no doubt).

How can I get faster and more powerful on the water?Part 2: Train on the waterSo, now that you have all raced to the gym and cranked outa few weights, grown some muscles and increased yourstrength and power, you can put some of that strength togood use and increase your speed on the water. Parachutes,speed sleds, power harnesses, bullet belts, weightedvests, bungees, buckets, sound like something out of a badinfomercial. With the correct guidance and knowledge, youcan learn the appropriate application of these accelerationtraining tools for on water training.Sleds have been used for years in running based sport. They, or other weighteddevices, are designed to increase the force athletes must produce to increaseacceleration. In kayaking the ‘sled’ effect is provided by a bungee around thehull or by dragging a bucket. A research formula suggests that sled draggingdoesn’t improve top speed but increasing acceleration has been overlooked.Sport science studies suggested that increased strength and power, increasesspeed. Many experts consider that heavy sled towing requires body positionadjustment which potentially changes one’s running technique. This mayspoil performance. I think this can be over emphasised and when used inmoderation, technique will not suffer. However, if it is a mainstay of yourprogramme, or you are a 50kg lightweight trying to tow a bucket before you’veestablished decent technique, then good luck!In kayak training it seems that an appropriate load (device) applied to theboat could lead to power and speed gains. Research shows that combiningsport specific power training with traditional weight training has the bestpower outcome.Two devices which work best for kayakers are bungees, with or withouttennis balls attached, and small buckets. If you are just starting out or youkeep getting dropped on the start line, the following tips may help you tofind your aggressive side which has been hiding under your bed with theAbflex machine you bought all those years ago. Pick up a bungee at your localhardware store. Drill some holes through the tennis balls and thread themthrough the bungee. The bungee goes on the boat just in front of the cockpitor directly behind it, and the tennis balls, depending on how much resistanceyou want to add, go under the boat. You still want to pull the boat through thewater whilst maintaining decent technique, so if you feel like you are goingnowhere, take off a ball or two. If you only had a bungee on in the first place, Ican’t help you, get back in the gym!! The stronger you are, or get, the more ballsyou add. Here is a sample session you can perform 1-2 times a week:• 6-9 starts (roughly 20 double strokes)• 2-3 without bungee/tennis balls• 2-3 with bungee/tennis balls• 2-3 without bungee/tennis balls• 3 minutes rest between each startKayakers to the rescue!It was reported (Taupo Times, date unknown) that a duckling was rescued bythe team at Canoe & Kayak Taupo.Staff members at the Huka Lodge unsuccessfully attempted to rescue thedistressed duckling from on shore.“The river being deep and current swift, we resorted to making an SOS call toFreddy at Canoe & Kayak Taupo in Spa Road. Within 20 minutes, kayak guideAndrew Loveridge arrived with his client on his way to take her on a guidedtrip down the Waikato.”The duckling was rescued and knotted trace from inside its mouth andwrapped around its body was removed.6 ISSUE FORTYfour • 2 0 0 8To progress, add more starts or add more resistance. If you have a GPS,monitor your speed.Buckets, creating very high resistance,are used solely by sprint kayakers toincrease starting strength and power. Small buckets have a hole cut in thebottom and a rope is ‘scientifically attached’ to it to position the bucket about5m astern. You probably wonder how kayaks maintain efficient techniquewhilst towing a bucket. Answer: They can’t, but since the focus is only on thefirst few strokes, there is no time to affect anything. A sample session, bestperformed no more than once a week; is outlined below.• 4-8 rolling starts (roughly 10 double strokes)• 4-5 with buckets• 2-3 without buckets• On 4 minutes (every start is done on the fourth minute)To progress, add more bucket starts or perform every second one fromstanding still. If you have a GPS, monitor your speed. Enjoy!Tamaryn Venter has a BSc in Sport Science and Psychology and currently workswith athletes in various sports from junior to international level, specialisingin strength and conditioning, sport psychology and physiological testing. Shecompetes in sprint kayaking. She can be contacted at tamaryn@primalathlete.comLone Kayaker airlifted to safety.A report in the Taupo Times ( January 8, 2008), of a lone paddlergetting into trouble has produced this response from one of ourreaders.The incident occurred at Kuratau Hydro lake, where she had intendedpaddling about 4 kilometres to the river mouth at Lake Taupo. Onconfronting some rapids she tried to walk them, but her kayak filled withwater and became pinned against rocks.She abandoned it and tried to make her way to her starting point throughthick bush.Reported missing, her kayak was spotted at about 7pm by the Search& Rescue helicopter. The 50 year old woman was ill-prepared (“…wearing only jandals, shorts and a singlet, and her kayak did not have aspray skirt.”) She had a medical condition that would not allow a nightTime and again newspapers carry stories of kayakers lost in the bush, illequipped, injured or worse. Accidents do happen, but having the skills todeal with them is vital. It’s amazing that Mrs Schmidt (Taupo Times article Jan8 page 3) embarked on a solo river journey which involved rapids, especiallygiven her medical condition, in a sit in kayak, without a spray skirt, helmetand most importantly the skills to negotiate the river safely. Sit in kayaks alsoneed air bags to stop them filling up with water, once full up, they can holdas much as a ton of water and easily get pinned on the rocks with little hopeof getting free. Luckily for her, in this instance, she was able to exit the kayakbefore this happened. Again, luckily after getting lost in the bush, she wasfound by rescue services.I am not trying to preach or reprimand anyone, just raise awareness of the factpeople can get into serious problems on rivers, very quickly! In fact most ofthe river drownings that are kayaking related are on Grade 1 and 2 (like theWaikato River above Huka Falls). Basic stuff but paddled by the inexperienced,can be hazardous. With professional tuition you can become a much saferpaddler and have a greater understanding of river dynamics, hazards, rescuetechniques, equipment and its uses, risks involved and group management.So before you set off on an adventure, talk to someone who knows. Your localKayaking centre can advise on these matters and course dates. Hopefully theRescue Services will not be needed to spend time, and possibly their own lives,on saving yours.Steve

Robbie Banks - Instructor & Kayak guideWhile the Aussie dudes were achieving the near impossible,kayaking from Austrailia to New Zealand, a lone kayakerwas quietly enjoying peace & tranquillity, kayaking solo for210 km of pristine coastline, down the Coromandel, fromFletchers Bay to Waihi Beach. Even in the height of Christmasholidays she was able to enjoy the sweet satisfaction ofremote camping away from the crowds.The Coromandel is Robbie’s favourite piece of coastline. Huge towering cliffsand areas with no road access keep it special & secluded. Its beautiful whitesandy beaches make it ‘hard to beat’.The glorious weather made it perfect for a trip that had been two years inthe planning.Her goal was to achieve the distance, with time each day to enjoy the scenery& special remote camp locations. She intended spending 2 days at SlipperIsland over New Years Eve.Unlike James Castrission & Justin Jones who had no opportunity to stretchtheir legs on terra firma, Robbie spent many afternoons exploring bays &bushwalks.She was even invited to dinner by a friendly family whose land adjoined hercamping spot under a huge Pohutuakawa tree.People can be so friendly & hospitable be when they meet a solo kayaker!She is now spending time with family and running the skills courses for Canoe& Kayak B.O.P. She hopes to share the fantastic kayaking she knows in the Bayof Plenty, the lakes & the Coromandel.Club trips run every weekend through Canoe & Kayak, and private tours areavailable on request. Trips are organized to suit all budgets and fitness levels,from relaxed local paddles to overnight trips.Robbie’s extensive knowledge of camping, lodges and exclusive luxury holidaypackages, combined with her kayaking experience, will guarantee you anexperience you will treasure.Enquiries can be made through Canoe and KayakCanoe & Kayak Bay of Plenty3/5 Mac Donald Street Mount MaunganuiPh 07-5747415Campsite Day 28 ISSUE FORTYfour • 2 0 0 8

Reality check on the MotuSmooth - that was the Motu, smooth like freshly ironedchinos.It wasn’t the river itself that was so polished but rather the events that clickedinto place to make it an adventure, where the high took at least three days towear off.The flow was perfect, the weather sound, the company new and fun, the campsdry, and the rapids exciting enough to be just right.The Motu was a sweet highway right to the very end. Sweet, sweet, sweet.But it was at the end that we unfortunately came across some very ugly roadkill.Returning to river running after a four year absence is fascinating becausesmall forgotten flavours are so evident. (In a previous life I did a bit ofkayaking).Things like whirlpools forming round pulled paddles, the silence of deepwater and the funny sense that the bank is running backwards from yourstable position.It was a gratifying return and raft captain fantastic, Nick Brown, was the oneto thank.His control of a relatively novice crew was superb and allowed us to flow forthree days with minimal effort.Raft GroupThe only times there were muck-ups in control was when another crewmember was at the helm. Horgs (Mike Horgan) found our only shingle bank,Marita enjoyed bouncing off rocks and the author had a habit of findingbackwater eddies.The kayakers, Pete, Ross and Aaron were our playful scouts, much like Apolloand Starbuck ranging from the Battlestar Galactica, dodging black holes andsearching for stellar waves.A meaning for Motu is ‘cut off, isolated’ - a fitting description of this East Caperiver which flows to the Bay of Plenty.Isolation was also the perfect description of the mood for a group wanting toslip out of society and reappear near the Pacific.The trip is a journey of experiences far more involved than just runningrapids.After the drop-in near Motu village the river run was a heady mix of emeraldwater, thick green bush, and deep gorges.Whio were a welcome companion on many of the bends. Actually gettingcomplacent about seeing so many of the ducks would be a heart-warmingfeeling for any conservationist.Add goats, deer and pigs that fall into the river to the bird life and the tripAaron in his elementbecame a real nature escapade.Day one camp was at the entry to the first of two gorges. Because the paddlingso far was straight forward the party had plenty of energy for impromptudistractions.These included the high of an intelligence quiz and an even greater high ofthrowing rocks to make ‘duck farts’ in the river water.No matter the activities the camp was dry and comfortable and combinedwith the higher river flow and good weather there was a feeling that we werebeing looked after.Or were we being lulled into a illusory impression of well-being?Day two was definitely adventurous. Rapids such as Boulder, Helicopter andDouble Staircase kept both rafters and kayakers entertained.The second half of the Staircase was run twice by those in plastic and wasprobably the only white water that touched grade IV.Most likely due to the flow the white water required little scouting and causedfew problems - not a bad thing on an isolated river journey.Other meanings involving the word Motu are severed, cut, and wounded. Afitting description for our finale.Our fine weather highway continued on day 3. Smooth sailing mixed in withthe odd bit of white water, goat, blue duck and bush.As the All Blacks were playing that morning conversation had turned to theRugby World Cup and a silver fern cloud was taken as good omen.The end was close and the sun was warm . . .Now it may seem totally inappropriate to talk rugby in a paddling article butFrom left to right,Aaron Field,Peter van Lith,Marita Lavery,Mike Scott,NickBrown,Mike Horgan,Ross Benton10 ISSUE FORTYfour • 2 0 0 8


New Zealand was playing France in a quarterfinal in Cardiff and when Grant,our more than amicable host and shuttle driver, asked if we “wanted to know Peter showing us how it’s donethe bad news”, well, I felt cut, wounded and severed.And this author is sad to say at that moment the All Blacks inglorious exit fromthe World Cup overshadowed the past three days’ wilderness journey.The emerald water, green bush and blue ducks faded with the loss. It was theinconvenient road kill on what had been a ironed chino smooth highway.But a perogative of the author is reflection and the opportunity to makeamends.Motu could also mean healer or reality check.As a nation mourned I remembered my Motu journey and quickly discountedany rugby disappointment.The emerald water, green bush and blue ducks made me realise it was somuch better to have been among the Motu‘s jewels than watching the gameon the box.First night Blue Slip campAaron relaxed after 3 great days on the MotuRafting on the MotuA quieter moment on the Motu“I have won a big race called Kajaktiv River Racewith the best multisporter in Sweden in this kayak”Martin NordstrandF1A radical fast kayak with considerable secondary stability.Designers & Constructors of Multisport& Adventure Racing KayaksPhone 06 875 0985 Fax 06 875 0983E-mail:- info@ruahinekayaks.co.nzP O Box 11142, HastingsWebsite:-www.ruahinekayaks.comISSUE FORTYfour • 2008 11


“The Catayak isI get some strange looks when I put this boat on the car. “Twokayaks sitting upside down on the roof?” Then they spot therudder in between. Questions come flying after that.I did not build the ‘catayak’ for attention seeking. Over two years ago howeverI built this boat in my mind when I had just been introduced to the techniqueof strip building kayaks. As a Joiner and lover of boats, I knew I must buildmy own kayak. I had every intention of building the regular shaped form thatkayakers have come to know well & love, but an idea popped into my headone day just as I was about to rig up my first strong back with typical shapedforms. “Why not a double hulled kayak that you sit between with your ass overthe water?” I had never seen one (maybe there’s a reason for that I thought?)so I set about designing this craft on the laptop. After two years, 6months ofwhich were winter labour, the ‘catayak’ (or katayak) was born.At an extremely light 15kgs, just over 4 metres long and 750mm wide thedimensions are pretty normal. Not as big or heavy as some people thought itwas going to be. Explaining my concept to close friends & relatives their firstquestion was always “But how will you paddle it?” They thought I was goingto build two normal sized hulls which would be kind of difficult to paddleconventionally.This craft is a breeze to paddle. I use a West Greenland paddle made fromcedar which I just love for its lightness and Inuit authenticity. It works wellwith this design. The hulls were strip built using 6mm cedar for the bottom &stained pine on the deck. Both hulls are fibre glassed inside & out. Two mainsupport brackets hold the two hulls parallel.The rigging is very simple. 50mm nylon belt (similar to seatbelt material) islaced & crossed from hull to hull to support not only myself but the 6mm highdensity foam which makes the sitting & storage platforms. The rudder controlscome straight up the middle underneath all this material. then poke up to thefoot pedal steering column. Most of the other fittings like the two rear sealedhatches and seat were bought from the local Burnsco & Kayak shop. All in all therigging took three weeks to complete. The final cost of all materials includingtimber & fibreglass was just over $1000. That’s not including labour of coursebut who cares when you have a dream to fulfil.First day out was a little nerve racking. Last thing I wanted was an audience asI sunk into the water or tipped out on the maiden voyage. Thankfully this didnot occur, in fact it worked great. Tracking is excellent, not too stiff. Stabilityis beyond belief and with or without the rudder, steering is a breeze. You geta little wet from the paddle but who doesn’t on a sit-on? Since that day I wasand still am wrapped! I have taken the Catayak out fishing using the two rodholders and hope to install a sail just for added fun on those windy days. Thereal joy though comes from the stability especially for average paddlers likeme who sometimes find ‘chop’ and ‘wind’ a real tiring affair.Next winter I plan on building a 5m version with a few more improvements.If anyone is interested in building such a craft then please don’t hesitate tocontact me.CatayakC/o Ross Mathews104A Grove St, Nelson, 7010, NZ.Mob .021165605612 ISSUE FORTYfour • 2 0 0 8


International Outdoor Recreation and Education Conference,Christchurch, January 21-24, 2008My attitude to providing the academics with information when I was askedto help out with surveys has been “I haven’t got time to do that.” But havingseen the work they do, I realise the importance of assisting their research,vital for you and me in the future.In January I accompanied Peter Townend to a Conferencetitled ‘The Confluence’ held at Lincoln University,Christchurch.Organized by Outdoors New Zealand (ONZ), there were speakers from fourteencountries including New Zealand, Denmark, Canada, USA, Taiwan, Singaporeand Australia, bringing words of wisdom from their specialist fields.It was an opportunity for everyone connected with the outdoors, includingkayakers, to get together. Academics, Outdoor-Instructors, Tour Operatorsand Business folk contributed.The subjects included ‘the effects of our presence on the environment’ and‘how paddling effects family life’. The huge amount of research in New Zealandand worldwide amazed me.Fundamental to kayaking, we considered Outdoor Instructors Qualificationsthat ONZ seeks to align. It is intended to bring cohesion to our industry whichcurrently has many different ways to become a qualified Instructor or guideand avoid current confusion.A major subject of vital concern to all kayakers is the degradation of ourenvironment. A case history illustrates this. The Colorado River is now suchpopular destination to paddle that you must book 10 years in advance. Ifyou miss your slot due to weather, or anything else, you lose your place. Wein New Zealand might wish to govern our important waterways a week ortwo in advance. To do this we need information about past use, trends andintentions.Much time was spent on sustainability. We discussed our roll in protectingplaces from our visits. As Kayakers we must ‘do our bit’, this is right down tograss roots; recycling our waste from the home and office. On our trips intothe outdoors remove rubbish that we come across and cause no damage/disruption.One specific, we need to stop Didymo, by spreading the word and doing whatis required. As individuals we lead others. Let’s make sure it’s down the roadthat preserves and protects the environment.The Australian ‘Leave no trace’ initiative would be good to adopt.(See; www.lnt.org/)Its 7 Principles are• Plan Ahead and Prepare• Travel and Camp on Durable Surfaces• Dispose of Waste Properly• Leave What You Find• Minimise Campfire Impacts• Respect Wildlife• Be Considerate of Your Hosts and Other VisitorsThe 4-day conference, for which I am most thankful, was a huge learning curvefor me, I would be very happy to hear from you at james@canoeandkayak.co.nz to tell you more.Thanks to Laura Adams, Garth Gulley and the whole team at Outdoors NewZealand for organising this world class event.James FitnessNow available in New ZealandContact your local Canoe & Kayak Centre


Point 65 Kayak ReviewPoint 65 kayaks are the latest addition to Canoe & Kayaksrange of Touring and Sea Kayaks. Point 65 kayaks benefitfrom a quality manufacturer and an awesome design team.They produce kayaks in RM Plastic and composite. Ourstaff, Arron Wilson (C&K Hawkes Bay), Stephen Taylor (C&KManukau) and James Fitness(NZ Kayak Magazine) tested theSwedish kayaks and this is what they thought….Point 65 Nemo - RRP $1099.00The Nemo is the smallest, lightest touring kayak in the Point 65 range.Being so light it is easy to load to the car and carry to the water. The buildquality feels solid with a tough rigid hull that will stand the test of time. Thecockpit arrangement is spacious and comfortable. Arron pictured belowfitted comfortably in the Nemo. For a short touring kayak the Nemo wassurprisingly sleek, very manoeuvrable and light on the water. It is verystable and gives the paddler much confidence on the water. The Nemohas generous size rear storage hatch and deck elastics to hold kit that youneed to reach. We feel it will make the perfect day touring kayak for lakes,estuary, and gentle coastal paddling.Point 65 Five O Five - RRP $2299.00The NZ market has been crying out for a 5 metre, fast and stable touring kayakand Point 65 have the answer with the Five O Five. We were so impressedwhen we paddled this kayak. The Five O Five has the perfect balance betweenstability and performance. It is user friendly and stable enough for a beginnerbut also has enough performance to satisfy the improving paddler lookingto develop skill. It is perfect for day paddling or camping trips with loads ofstorage in the stern and bow. The Rudder system is superb, and easy to engageand control. The hull felt rigid through the water delivering great speed anddurability. The cockpit is comfortable and will accommodate larger paddlerstoo. This kayak is for those looking to progress in touring or into the worldof Sea kayaking. This is truly a lot of kayak for the money, offering comfort,performance, stability and superior build quality. An incredible touringPlenty of performance to satisfy the improving paddlerArran in the NemoAward SchemeThe NZKI Award Scheme was formed in response to agrowing need in the Kayaking Industry to have morepeople with Kayaking qualifications, to encourage morekayakers towards expanding their skills and knowledgeand to continue to increase the safety of our sport.The NZKI Award Scheme is structured around theassessment of skills and knowledge that are required forthe type of activity to be undertaken by the Instructoror Guide.A star is awarded for each level achieved, starting offwith the NZKI One Star for personal paddling skills andknowledge and moving up to the NZKI Five Star foran Assessor.For more information phone 0508 5292569www.nzki.co.nzStephen in the Five O FiveThe test team14 ISSUE FORTYfour • 2 0 0 8


It was great to be at the finish line at the 2008 Coastto Coast. To see Richard Usher finish so strong afterwhat was a flawless day for him was fantastic butbest of all to see a good friend of mine finish andmany others cross the line with that same smileand satisfied look of joy and accomplishmentplastered on their faces was just superb.At the time, the simple yet profound notion struck me that in orderto finish you first have to start.So what have I done to start on my journey towards the Coastto Coast, 2009?Well I have been fortunate to have received my Ruahine GladiatorKayak. Having paddled it now in a variety of environments fromthe calm waters of the Puhoi River to rougher waters in the Hauraki Gulf. Iam in love. Averting imminent divorce, I cancelled the bedroom alterationsto accommodate the 5.9m beauty and for now she resides in the garage.Obviously this may change depending on my wife’s behaviour over the nextfew months.In line with what you would expect from a “Lucy Lawless” type Gladiatorshe is reliable yet lively and possesses a good turn of speed. She provides alot of space, which is great for comfort, and most importantly she is stable. Avery important attribute for a novice/intermediate paddler. I have not beendumped by her yet. I do however await the chilly white waters of the MohakaRiver in May when I start my Grade 2 certificate with Canoe & Kayak, Taupo.No doubt my time will come.General training is going well but with approximately 360 days to go themotivation to adopt a stricter regime and hone up on nutrition is strong. I amin the process of finalising the intermediate goals and events that will stepme up to the final goal of completing the Coast to Coast, 2009. Events such asthe Rodney Coast to Coast, Round the Lake Cycle Race and Waimak ClassicRiver Race will hopefully provide good stepping-stones.The Nike catch phrase of“Just do it” is my challenge toyou. If you have made someNew Years goals and are yetto implement them, then getstarted. Remember in order tofinish you must first start.Profound isn’t it.All the best.Craig PritchardISSUE FORTYfour • 2008 15


‘Rock snot’battle lines drawnThe call to action to protect against rock snot(didymo) now detected in two more major SouthIsland rivers has taken on new urgency.Regional Group Co-ordinator for the Northland/Auckland Didymo/Freshwater pests PartnersGroup, Mark Geaney, is worried about the latestfinds and is calling on the public to get vigilantand fight didymo.“We know didymo is spread by human activity,’he says. “We are particularly keen to get ourmessage out to people who use freshwater areasfor their recreation. Kayakers, trampers, boatiesand anglers can all unwittingly spread didymoand we urge them to check, clean and dry theirgear every time.”“The best way to protect against didymo is toensure that absolutely anything that has been incontact with freshwater is decontaminated beforeit hits the next waterway. Check gear and removedebris. Clean gear with a mild solution of detergentor household bleach and dry it thoroughly whenmoving between waterways” says Mark.“If you can’t decontaminate your gear betweenwaterways then you should dry to the touch andleave for an additional 48 hours before usingin another waterway, or restrict use to a singlewaterway.”Microscopic live didymo cells hitchhike ontramping boots, waders, fishing lures, kayaks andtyres then jump off in new freshwater sites. Wecan‘t see the cells, but they are there - and theycan live in or on damp gear for weeks.Didymo is an invasive freshwater alga that formsugly, dense, fibrous mats in the water up to 12 cmthick. It can choke waterways and affect habitatand food sources for other species. It also giveswaterways a dirty, polluted look. As yet, we haveno effective way of getting rid of it.“It is very bad news for the environment, theeconomy, and people who love to spend theirleisure time in our pristine rivers and lakes. Weneed our Check Clean Dry message to go out loudand clear to Kiwis and visitors to New Zealandalike.Didymo was first detected in New Zealand in 2004in the Lower Waiau River in Southland.

One Wet SundayIt was a wet Sunday afternoon, teamingdown as only the Taranaki coastlinecan. Only one thing for it – a hot drink,snuggle down by the fire with a goodbook, maybe a snooze ….. Could be aTui ad really, couldn’t it – yeah right!Let’s go paddling!I rang around my paddling buddies aka Bronnieand Mark (Julie was AWOL) .We met at theWaiwakaiho meeting of the waters to plan ourassault.The river was running at a pumping 40 + cumecsbut we felt quietly confident knowing the lowersection to be well within our comfort zone. Then,what’s this? Emerging from the water, the ‘big boys’of Taranaki kayaking arrived, having run the upperand middle section.They convinced us that this stretch of waterwould be much more fun (?!) and even better,magnanimously offered to shepherd us down!How could we refuse? Believe me we tried. Eachdesperate to bail, but short of admitting to beingthe ‘girls blouses’ (which we actually are) our fatewas sealed.We put in below Egmont village. Bronnie put ona brave face, but the message was loud and clearfrom her dilated pupils!Mark less subtle, hissed at me in private “Thereare some seriously horrible gnarly things on thisrun. What are we doing?”Yes folks, at this point, I was really looking for anout. It failed to appear.Briefly I thought of turning to my supportivehusband, Lester, for words of comfort, and thenremembered the last time I admitted to blind terrorprior to a trip. The words, if my memory servesme well, went something like “Get hard and don’t‘witter on’ or you’ll irritate the boys” (I’ll explainanother day where my headspace was whenchoice of life partner was being made!)Like innocent little lemmings we sallied forth.It took at least 100m (or was it 75) before I wasstaring at the rocks at the bottom of the river, headbanging, arms flailing and majorly reconsideringthe ‘cosy fire’ option! In an unskilled and inelegantroll or 3, I was up, to the sound of cheering (or wasthat surprise).I survived the next kilometre or so with variousunusual grimaces and colourful language, passingempathetic looks to the other trip liabilities, mypals Bron and Mark.I stopped at the top of a particularly gruesomelooking stretch of water with a really ominousfeeling.Surely, this is the time to swallow my pride andportage.But no! I didn’t reckon on good ol’ Stevo.“Stick with me” he said. “I’ll see you right, trust me”(I really should have listened to my mothers adviceabout men with such lines!)Tally ho! Off I went meekly and trustingly obeyedhis every word and mirroring his every move…..Right into the bus eating, gi-normous, cavernoushole waiting with jaws wide open.It wasn’t pretty.Thanks Steve!!Bronnie enjoyed the experience shortly after. Herrodeo moves were spectacularly entertaining andhey, it’s good to have company at times like this –we girls like to stick together don’t we Bronnie?(Lester reckons it was more of a mini eating hole Amanda18 ISSUE FORTYfour • 2 0 0 8


Hubby Lester at get inbut let’s not split hairs! )The next hour long debacle in reuniting chicks with boats was pretty epicincluding a MacGyver like climb down a vertical cliff face which if filmed wouldbe a contender for the Banff film festival extreme climbing section.Grade 4 hole, grade 6 rescue!We got back into our boats, despite some polite suggestions of a walkout fromever soothing hubby.I responded in confident style by immediately turning upside down in thenext rapid. I rolled expertly, only to become pinned along with 2 other boats.Bronnie, of course (girl thing happening again) and Mark . 3 for 1!The support crew were now becoming somewhat jaded, feeling they had notsigned up for this mayhem (did I hear the term false advertising anyone?)I realised this was not a great situation to be in and was commenting such(whilst cleverly performing a self sustaining tail stand) to my comrades inarms, when I realized that Bronnie had deftly extricated herself and that I wastalking to an empty green creek boat, once occupied by Mark …aaargh !! Aghost ship !! Seriously surreal !Then I caught sight of the man in question bobbing not so merrily downstreamwith an ‘anyone seen Huka Falls?’ expression on his face. Very reassuring!Self esteem and ego were at an all time low. But, hey, we could only improveand the rest of the trip was surprisingly uneventful.We aced the quarry rapid, portaged the next section due to a 6th sense ofself preservation. (We would have been fine eh guys!) Then we were sweetdown on the home run.By the time we reached the take out we were triumphant and bulletproof.Who us ,scared ??Nah, we rocked! Legends in our own lunchboxes no less!It was suggested that maybe for our next trip we plaster neon pink stickersover the hulls of our boats with ‘other side up’ written on. Rude huh !!Heartfelt thanks to the awesome, supportive, forever encouraging andendlessly patient dream team that kept us safe – Steve, John, Aaron W AaronF, Pete, Al and yes, Lester. You guys are our heroes!!When can we go again ‘cos count me in, I can’t wait!Amanda meets holeISSUE FORTYfour • 2008 19


The Aussie Rats by Bronnie van Lith.What an amazing day! What an amazing crowd! What anamazing paddle.I’m buzzing and it was all over a couple of amazing Australians! Our two AussieRats from across the ditch, Justin Jones & James Castrission, left Aussie on the13th of November, to paddle the 2200km to New Zealand. I’m not one to sitin front of a computer for long, but I was absolutely glued to the ‘crossing theditch’ web site in the weeks before that amazing landing in New Plymouth.I had to reschedule dropping my kids off in Tauranga several times as theAussie boys distance to the new Plymouth shores grew shorter and datesand time of landing kept changing. I sure wasn’t going to miss this peace ofhistory for anything!The morning finally came. The sun was shining, the sea was calm. It was aSunday and the paddling conditions for the boys couldn’t have been better.Armed with a compass, GPS, a cell phone and the promise from Patrick Brothersto text us the boys’ co ordinates every 20 mins, all 24 of us fellow kayakersset off from the quiet Nga Mutu Harbour in New Plymouth at 7am. We hadstrict instructions not to touch the boys, their kayak or give anything to them,otherwise their journey would be deemed as assisted and therefore failed.We paddled a double Waka Ama and a couple of sit on top fishing kayaks.There was also a white water paddler, who had never been in the open seabefore. We decided it might be a bit tough to expect him to keep up in his littleplay boat and so had a double sea kayak waiting for him. An Aussie mate saidhe had quite a lot of experience in the open sea, but it soon became obviousthat the open sea in Australia is not like the west coast of New Zealand’s, evenin calm conditions. Most of us however, were locals from the Yakity Yak Kayakclub in New Plymouth and nothing could dampen our spirits as we headedout to the horizon, slower paddlers went first.In the open sea one of us was not coping. He made the swop into a doublekayak, causing some delay. Pete thought that the rest of the group had goneon ahead on the wrong bearing. Checking his compass he became convincedand blew a whistle and made the paddle signal to stop. But they were well outof hearing and continued to paddle towards the horizon.Then we realized that they had the radios, while we had the cell phone. Itlooked like there would only be 3 kayaks meeting our Aussie boys today!That would disappoint the public and the media, who were flying overhead,taking pictures. So we fast paddled to catch up to everyone before they wenttoo far. Fortunately our clubbies are trained to stick together, and they stoppedto wait for us. Just as well because my arms were fast becoming like lead! Therest of the trip passed with friendly chatter and funny stories. Patrick stuck tohis word and sent us the co ordinates. An Auckland friend Phil was awesomeon the GPS. A small speck, straight ahead of us on the horizon, became biggerand it became our Aussie friends.Our pace quickened with the sighting and idle chatter turned to our greetingsong. How shall we greet them? After much choreography of the Haka & thenWaltzing Matilda, we ended up yelling and screaming at the top of our voices.We waved our paddles in the air like crazy and blew our whistles as loud aswe could! Justin & Jason were equally excited. They stood up, also wavingtheir paddles, yelling and grinning from ear to ear. Secretly they told us thatthey preferred having fellow kayakers out there rather than the big boats. OurGPS told us we were 18 kms out.Justin & Jason looked great! One could never have guessed that they had justpaddled over 3000ks for 63 days, battling everything nature could throw atthem. Encountering storms with 9 metre waves, huge ocean currents that hadthem in an eddy for 10 days mid Tasman and head winds had slowed theirprogress. They had to spend days in the safety of their tiny cabin. With shiningeyes they looked full of energy.They expected a couple of paddlers and a few people waiting for them onthe beach so they were blown away to see so many kayakers on the water.We didn’t let on what was waiting for them around the corner at Nga Mutuharbour.The next few hours were blissful. Apart from one media boat and anotherwhich had been sent out to protect them from the busier shipping lanes, we hadour heroes all to ourselves. Apparently they were nearly hit by a large vesselthe night before. We chatted excitedly and told stories as we paddled towardsNew Plymouth’s harbour. They told us they had made a pact not to cry at theirfirst sighting of land. But when beautiful Mount Taranaki rose before them,they couldn’t help but shed a tear! They told about washing their dishes overthe side with sharks hanging about and when asked if they had ever Eskimorolled their kayak, the answer was no, but it had definitely been on its side afew times. Lot 41 as their kayak was named, had a 1 metre rudder and whenit left Australia weighed just less than 1 ton.The boys told us that they got the idea from a trip they, plus two other friendsStill looking strong and putting on a healthy pace of 5.5 kph20 ISSUE FORTYfour • 2 0 0 8


For SaleKayak CentresInterested inowning your ownkayak shop?Brendan always keen to meet fellow paddlersdid on the Murray River. The four of them paddled the whole 2400km lengthof the river. They thought that if they could do that, they could paddle theditch.As we drew nearer to Nga Mutu, more vessels joined us. Before long peacewas shattered. Motor boats, kayakers of all sorts, Waka Ama, media boats, andsurf club IRBs cleared the way so no-one could get near our heroes. We wereamongst hundreds of others escorting Lot 41. The beach scene was incredible.In five hours our quiet harbour was transformed by a mass of around eightthousand people.The web site crashed due to thousands of people trying to log on during themorning, so our cell phone had been going flat out with people asking whenthey were going to land. Apparently close to one million people around theworld were trying to log on that morning. Many missed the landing as the website was predicting 3-4pm when it crashed.We couldn’t beach our kayaks due to the lack of space. Justin and James wereoverwhelmed! They weren’t expecting anything like it. When they first caughtsight of the beach they thought that the masses of people were rocks!As lot 41 came to a halt our two heroes stood up in their kayak to the roar ofthe crowd, leapt into the water and then arm around arm, stumbled into thecrowd and disappeared from our view. We sat in our kayaks reflecting on acouple of awesome Aussie mates. They are real blokes with big hearts. Theylove adventure the sea, kayaks and life. In the time I spent on the internet, andthe short paddle to greet them, I got to know them as friends.Justin & James, If you ever get to read this article, thanks for letting us sharejust a little of this incredible journey with you.

Be PreparedOne Saturday the weather was perfect. My good mate Jimand I intended to paddle from Takapuna boat ramp to theshipwrecks on the northern side of Rangitoto. I was in thewater calling in a trip report to the Coastguard and eating aprotein bar, while Jim adjusted his gear. Then we were off.I am a very healthy and fit 51-year-old with no [previous] food allergies.An hour and a half later I developed anaphylactic shock and came close todeath.Looking back, it’s easy to see what had happened. Less than an hour into thetrip, I felt a tingling in my fingers, toes and lips with slight swelling and wasslightly nauseous. Five metres from the coastline the symptoms were intrusive.I knew that I had to get ashore – fast!In wave surge, landing was tricky on a steeply shelving rocky cove.I rushed off to the scrub and struggled with violent vomiting and explosivediarrhoea. The purge didn’t help and I felt dreadful. I was having troublebreathing, couldn’t control my limbs and my vision was narrowing. By thistime my face and extremities had started to swell.I mumbled to Jim that I’d feel better in a half hour, but he insisted that we call theCoast Guard on Channel 82 immediately. If we hadn’t had our own waterproofVHF radios and he hadn’t insisted, I wouldn’t be here today.Lapsing in and out of consciousness accompanied by convulsions I was awareof Jim taking control. He tells me that the Coast Guard cutter arrived within10 minutes and sighted our yellow kayaks on the rocks. The medic landedwith oxygen and called in the Westpac Rescue helicopter.With no place to land the pilot hovered about six metres away while heoffloaded the paramedic and stretcher.I remember the incredible noise, grit, spume and sand flying around me.When I was finally airlifted away to Auckland Hospital, the down-draft hadJim scrambling to hold down the kayaks and the Coast Guard medic rushingto save his inflatable!Meanwhile, Jim was left to clean up mess. The Coast Guard cutter transportedJim and both kayaks back to Takapuna boat ramp. Charged with organisingkayaks and vehicles, Jim was kept pretty busy but he was pretty shaken bythe turn of events as you’d expect.Only four hours after arriving at the hospital I was physically well enough togo home. Emotionally though, it took longer for Jim and I to come to termswith what had happened.However, we also learned a few things through this experience and I’d like toshare some of them with you now.Kayaking is not just about having a good time. You have a responsibilityto your fellow kayaker, your family and friends to make sure you aresafe on the water. Ultimately, you don’t want to risk other people’s lives torescue you. Think of safety and planning as ways of putting a few different‘threads in the water’. Hopefully at least one will catch when you need it to.It worked for us.Be prepared!· Complete a Sea Kayaking Stage One Skills course as a minimum· Complete a VHF course through Coast Guard· Complete a first aid course and carry a complete first aid kit· Join the Coast Guard· Always have at least 2 lines of communication (VHF and cellphone). Keepin waterproof packaging even if it says on the outer that the equipment iswaterproof.

Fiordland Experience Spring 2007by Anjuli BurrellAt the Wellington Yakity Yak MidwinterChristmas celebration, 4 of uscovered the floor with maps and chartsof the Milford Sound area, planning anddreaming of kayaking. Before I knew it,the trip was posted on the website, andclassified as ‘Intermediate’. I doubtedwhether, with limited experience, I wasup to it. But 2 teenagers coming withus eased my fears. The count down tothe trip began.We begged, borrowed and stole gear from otherYakity Yakkers, bought food and squashed thingsinto dry bags. On Saturday, after 3 ½ hours on aferry and 9 hours driving we reached OmaramaCamp ground. Sunday dawned bringing another7 hours driving on the long straight Canterburyroads and through scenic Central Otago. Numerouscoffee stops, lunch, a last minute visit to thesupermarket, a stop at the DOC office and we wereat Lake Manapouri.We scurried around stowing what would fit intoour kayaks, left the rest for the 2nd half of thepaddle, and launched into a head wind and slightchop.We reached Shallow Creek Hutt just before sundown and, watched by an untroubled kereru, slungour hammocks in the trees, lit a fire in the hut tocook dehydrated dinners and dried our clothes.It started to rain so my first night was a wet one.In a lopsided hammock fearful of falling out andslipping knots, sleep was disturbed.It drizzled during breakfast, but when we hit thewater for our first full day Southland provided astill, eerie atmosphere with much rain and amazingrainbows. The wind held off for the morning,disappointing those of us with sails who planneda free ride.Some of us followed Tony, our adventurous one,nosing under water falls. I was thrilled by theanticipation of water drumming on the front ofmy kayak.We had lunch and made another toilet stop (yes,kayaking females go to the toilet in groups –one stops, and the others take the opportunity,uncertain when the next will be). In showers andsome wind we paddled 31kms to the top of LakeManapouri where the visitors centre provided agreat veranda for cooking (provided you didn’tmind breathing mouthfuls of sandflies). The flushtoilets were a great luxury.In need of a good night’s sleep 7 of us decided tomake the most of the DOC hut up the road. Despitesnoring, we enjoyed the mattresses and slept like24 ISSUE FORTYfour • 2 0 0 8logs. Those toughing it out in the hammocks saidthey rested – maybe not so much sleep then! Thenext morning dawned, chilly compared to theprevious day, with fresh snow on the surroundinghills.Faced with a 35 km paddle the group split into 3 –Russell, an injured party, and his co-paddler tookthe ferry out. They greeted us with the vehiclesat the other end for the short drive to Te Anau.Secondly a group of 5, ready, impatient and gettingcold quickly, got going with the third group of 6following. I was one of the 5 very quickly wonderingif that had been a good choice. I always seemedto be left behind. As the photographer and radiooperator each time I caught up I’d have to stop totake a photo or talk on the radio.Our 5 had started about half an hour ahead of the6 – and only just maintained our lead after losingtime on a detour for a toilet stop. We finishedlunch as the 2nd group arrived, and had a greatafternoon paddle in fine weather and a light windwhich, out of the shelter of the islands, providedsome surfing.Te Anau provided luxury cabins at the campground, and a great group dinner to celebrate Neil’sbirthday. We all appreciated hot showers and foodcooked by someone else so much more after a long,cold day of paddling.Wednesday, snow closed the road to MilfordSound, our intended destination. Instead wedecided on Lake Te Anau. After real coffee andbakery goodies we paddled up the lakeside to TeAnau Downs in perfect weather – no wind, brilliantblue skies calm water. Russell’s wrist was stillplaying up, so I had Caitlin in the double. Headingacross the lake to Middle Arm and the islandsthere, like children, we played tag, racing aboutand sneaking up on each other. We had lunch onan island beach, the toilet stops weren’t limited tothe girls this time. An alteration to a wetsuit madeby a knife explained why someone had holes inhis trousers!On the paddle back, we practised rolls and otherstints in the middle of the lake. Andy showed ushis head stand skills followed by a dip in the lake– Laura took the opportunity to speed away fromher dad, the fastest I’ve ever seen her paddle! Wereturned to the vehicles and loaded the trailer.Loath to leave, and end a perfect day we lingeredand, while Diane tried her hand at fishing, the restof us watched the stunning sunset and ignoredclouds looming over the mountains.On Thursday the weather was unfavourable so weleft Te Anau heading north to find better paddling.We stopped at Kawarau for Andy and Laura tomake a tandem bungy jump, and Tony to inspireus. He is the only 70yr old I’ve seen jump. Afterso much kayaking, sitting still in the van all daywas hard, so a snow fight and building a coupleof snowmen at Lindis Pass was a welcome break.We had a night in Twizel and dinner at the localbistro. Somehow the whole town knew we were‘the kayaking group’.In the morning we tried Lake Tekapo where wepaddled for 40mins before the wind reached 50knots. Paddles became sails while those withproper sails had an even better ride.Still hunting for good weather we continued northto spend the night in Akaroa. Probably our worstmeal of the trip was at the local pub but walkinground the water front, exploring the playground,climbing trees and sitting in the old whaling potswas a welcome change from driving.The next day we got the weather we had beenlooking for. We put in at Wainui, and startedtowards the heads in the hope of seeing dolphins.When a headwind picked up we turned back tohead further up the harbour. A toilet stop provednot to be as private as normal. Random walkerscame down to the bay where we were hiddenbehind rocks. A not so subtle approach had to beused in the end to warn them away!We found a great place with ‘left behind buildings’for lunch, and debated what the little house, theemptied shed, and the run down tractor called“Goliath” had been used for.. The trip back was abit more exciting. The waves had picked up andrequired more concentration. Our adventurousTony practised his rolls amongst the waves, andthe second time fell out (intentionally I realisedlater). It provided a great exercise in rescuinga fellow paddler, thought provoking for futurekayaking adventures.Then we were on the road again, and yes headingnorth, with one more stopover at Hanmer Springs,for a soak in the hot pools to end over 130 kms ofkayaking. We arrived early evening at the forestcamp – great little cabins, and a lounge/kitchen setaside for us (maybe they thought we’d be noisy!),and discovered the hot pools were closed. A littleChinese restaurant looked after us for dinner,and we finished all our junk food and drink. Wedebriefed the trip in our lounge and went to bedin the early hours of the morning.Sunday started badly with the rugby results andthe weather too windy and wet for paddling. Sincethe hot pools were now open we enjoyed a soakand then it was the last leg back to Picton and whatseemed the longest ferry ride ever.A shame we never made it to Milford Sound but itwas an awesome trip – great kayaking and sights,good company and many laughs. And Milford isthere for a future trip.This motley crew consisted of:Andy and Laura Blake, Russell & Caitlin Pilcher,Paddy Gordon, Jolene Sutton-Herrick, AnjuliBurrell, Simon Barrow, Craig Stevenson, Tony

Speights Coast to Coast 2008Race director, Robin Judkins (Juddy), dedicated this race to theinternational competitors. Personally I reckon it should have beendedicated to the support crews. They had free Speight’s on tap fromthe Speight’s mobile pub for the whole event which created a fantasticatmosphere for this iconic kiwi event – Good on ya Speight’s.The river level was extremely low on the Waimakiriri which made for ahard slog and plenty of bumps, scrapes and cracks in the kayaks. But itdidn’t hold Richard Ussher back, he powered down the river and crossedthe finish line in 11:03:52, 20 minutes ahead of defending champ andclose friend, Auckland’s Gordon Walker. Ussher was delighted withthe win having had a “shocker” last year. Third in the longest day wasChristchurch’s own Dick Brunton.The women’s race had a most amazing finish. The top three wereseparated by under 3 minutes, with Emily Miazga crossing first in 13:16:24,43 seconds ahead of Fleur Pawsey. Rachel Cashin was just a couple ofminutes further back. Even more amazing the high tide at Sumner beachcreated a 30m swim to the finish!The two day men’s event was won by Dougal Alan in a time of 12:10:21.Kath Kelly took the women’s title with a time of 13:44:59.Of course the Speight’s Coast to Coast isn’t just about the top guys, it’sabout the average guys and girls like you and me who compete forthe challenge, the camaraderie and of course the free Speight’s.
