ADVENTURE PHILOSOPHYThe Unclaimed CoastAdventure Philosophy’s SouthGeorgian OdysseyMark JonesMark Jones is a member of the Adventure Philosophy team andlecturers at AUT University on its Outdoor Leadership courses.South Georgia Island. People who had been there spoke ofit in hallowed tones, with faraway looks, in turn intense ormisty eyed. Each had an epic to share: a shredded tent, ananchor dragging, seas whipped to frenzy- narrow escapes.Marcus Waters, Graham Charles first heard of the “unclaimed coast” in March2001. There had been two attempts to paddle around the island - the southwest coast, a full third of the island had never been kayaked.It was a coast that had seen fewer than 5 boats of any description explore itslength since the sealing days.I talked to people who had been there and read everything I could lay myhands on about the place. The impression I was left with was of an uncommonisland, remote, beautiful and unquestionably wild. But it was the wildlifethat drew me to it more than anything. Stories of beaches buried under sealsand astronomical numbers of penguins, averitable Serengeti of the south. The thought ofvisiting the island and exploring it under our ownsteam burrowed into my mind like a worm. Iacquired a 1:200,000 chart of the island fromArgentina, and from time to time I would furtivelyopen it, gazing wistfully at the outline of the island,tracing its coves and headlands with my eyes,trying to imagine just how it would feel to seethem from sea level. The mind worm burroweddeeper...The Island itself is one of the most remote partsof the planet, but a flight from Auckland viaSantiago to Port Stanley in the Falklands and thensailing 1300km ESE will get you there. It doesn’tseem so far away when you say it quickly. Wesailed with Greg Landreth and Keri Pashuk aboarda 53-foot Ketch Northanger, with a long history ofsuccessful polar expeditioning. After six days wegained our first glimpse of South Georgia.Impossibly jagged peaks, floating untethered in adistant haze with a large tabular berg sticking upfrom the horizon like a worn molar.Then everything was swallowed up by cloud and South Georgia became asmear of luminescence on the radar scree. It looked rather like those ink blotsthat shrinks are fond of using to psychoanalyse their patients. As thissimilarity struck me I couldn’t help but ponder why I wanted to be here. Whatstate of mind drives one to want to travel to such a far-flung scrap of land atthe edge of the world, to journey nearer the edge of reason that I cared toadmit? To be the first to kayak around the island was how we had pitchedit to sponsors, but that wasn’t the attraction.My mind winnowed through other possibilities and the real reasons that Iwas there soon dropped from the chaff- the quickness of breath, theextraordinariness of each day, the mystery that each unfolding headlandheld; for the shouted exultation of joy, and the warm glow of satisfaction atthe end of a hard won day; to experience simple awe of the elements andnature unbridled- extravagant, unsullied and mysterious; for theWe landed in snow that had fallen continuously since our journey beganGORE-TEX(r) Adventure Scholarships are “Good for Life”Three groups of young New Zealand adventurers have gained the opportunity tolive their dream adventure through the 2005 Adventure Philosophy - GORE-TEX(r)Good For Life Scholarships.The scholarships, administered by Adventure Philosophy, funded by GORE-TEX(r)outerwear, and sponsored by Mountain Safety Research (MSR), Bivouac Outdoor andMacpac, required applicants to submit an in-depth proposal for an adventure.Traverse of The Serpentine RangeFrancesca Eldridge and Glenn Pennycook plan to traverse the little travelledSerpentine Range in Fiordland National Park, Climbing several peaks along the waythat have had few ascents and all of those poorly documented.

Going early season meant it was cold- very cold! Even on the more moderate east coast the team had snow every day.camaraderie. In brief, to come back richer and to share it with others.We watched the island grow in stature from distant peaks to an omnipresenticy massif thrust from the sea. It was bitterly cold; a penetrating cold thatstung uncovered skin. We dropped anchor in RightWhale Bay. The landscape looked cold and mirthless, allrock and ice and wind scoured snow, but I still felt it wasthe island of my dreams.The next day we motored all the way to King Edward Point(KEP) where the British maintain an administrationand research base. We saw the island from afar, adetached yachtie’s view of the coast. It had none of theintimacy of shoreline sea kayaking, where one feels partof the intertidal zone: riding the suck and surge of thesea, breathing in the ozone smell of pulverised surf andthe scent of the land, hearing the wing-beat of a passing tern, or waterstreaming from the bull kelp- the day measured in moments notnautical-miles-to-destination.•Presentations•Slides Showswww.adventurephilosophy.co.nzThe small local populace of KEP was pleased to have the company, ours beingthe first boat of the season to visit and consequently I woke the next daywith a thumping hangover. Snow coated Northanger and our three Sea Bearsstrapped to its deck. It was a strange day sorting gear as we got to know folksonly to say goodbye to them again, packing the Bearsand making decisions on the nitty gritty of what to takeand leave.One moment was particularly incongruous, sitting inthe spacious lounge of the newly built basecommander’s house, being interviewed for their SouthGeorgia Island website, while less that ten metres fromwhere we sipped our cups of teas two bull elephantseals fought a fierce and bloody battle. The contender,with a ragged and ruined nose, took on the beachMaster and got some tough medicine before conceding that size and thehigher ground were not in his favour.

HISTORYDacre Cottage, Okura and theman who gave it his nameby Ruth E. HendersonWe were pounding the pavement,building up the legs and miles inpreparation for walking the LakeWaikaremoana track, when I asked mymate Tessa Marshall if she knew of anylocal bush walks I could do.“You can always go and visit my Great GreatGrandfather” she said.That was my first introduction to one of ourcountry’s more colourful characters, CaptainRanulph Dacre - sea-captain, adventurer, pioneerof the timber export trade and the cottage thatbears his name.To get there we parked at Haighs Road, off EastCoast Road, 18 km north of Auckland andfollowed the track along the Okura river estuarythrough groves of nikau, pohutukawa andregenerating kauri to Karepiro Bay.It took us about an hour and a quarter of steadybut gentle plodding.Kayakers can launch at any of the East Coastbeaches: Mairangi Bay, Browns Bay with Long Baybeing the most obvious choice if wanting only ashort paddle of less than 5 km.By water, once across the estuary, it is easy to spota big red barn. Next to it at the northern end ofthe beach lies Dacre Cottage. The cottage wasbuilt around 1855 - 1856 as a farm house for the3,334 acre cattle farm owned by Capt. RanulphDacre and farmed by his sons Henry and LiefSeptimus. Apparently it was built using localbricks and shingles, with the floor being madefrom terra cotta tiles which arrived in one of theCaptains ships as ballast.In the early 1980’s the cottage was in danger ofcollapse and had been vandalized. The HistoricPlaces Trust stepped in and rebuilt the entirecottage using old photos to guide them in itsrestoration. New bricks which matched the oldwere used with the remaining originals reused inthe chimney.When Tessa and I turned up in 2004, much to ourdisappointment the cottage was locked, thewindow shutters nailed up, the garden and fruittrees covered in lichen and surrounding grasstotally over-grown.A shamefully neglected and forlorn remnant ofNZ history - hardly the tribute deserved by oneof the most enterprising early traders of the NZcoasts, who had the sort of adventures that makeyour hair stand on end.Born in 1797 Captain Dacre came from a goodHampshire family, son of Colonel Dacre, HighSheriff of the county. In 1810 at the age of thirteenhe joined the Navy as a midshipman and servedin the 1812 war against the USA. In 1816 heresigned his commission and became captain ofa schooner trading in the West Indies, Australiaand Pacific Islands. Between 1825 and 1831 hetraded between Australia, NZ and London, andthen he married Margaret Sea and settled inSydney. In 1834 in partnership with William Wilkshe set up a mercantile and shipping agency,intending to exploit Pacific products such aswhale oil, sandalwood, kauri timber, greenstoneand flax.Apart from recording that Dacre’s venture into thegreenstone trade was not a success, the historybooks make little mention of these exploits, theexception being the timber trade.Kauri spars and masts were paid for by the linealfoot and according to the diameter. Whereassticks of 3" (75mm) diameter were worth 7 1/2pence per foot (300mm) the larger ones of 30"(750mm) diameter were worth eight shillings andseven pence per foot. Masts of 60 - 70 feet (18 -20m) were needed by the Navy and a good topmast was said to fetch 200 pounds in London. Ican’t imagine what their comparative value wouldbe today! Top dollars!Capt. Dacre took his first load of spars from theHokianga in 1827, trading in the ship Surrey. Whiletrading around the coasts, he visited Mahurangi(and reputably was the first trader in this inlet),Whangaroa, and Mercury Bay.Samuel Marsden had explored the Kaipara’slandward side, but Capt. Dacre in 1832 was thefirst to enter and explore its harbour.The historical material collected by MargaretStevenson and W. Macdonald cites a couple ofadventures: “The Kaipara chief who hadundertaken to assist in procuring the sparssuddenly downed tools and demanded paymentof blankets and tobacco on account. This Dacrerefused to give. Although the chief had a strongfollowing, much larger than the Captains 50 men,Dacre stood up against him, even threatening tothrow him overboard. The Maori was muchimpressed by his audacity and he set aboutearning his payment without more ado.”Another story tells of an awkward and tensemoment when his baby daughter Julia, dangled onthe knee of the chief, Patuone. She seized the greatchief’s topknot. He immediately left the ship with1980Replacing the bricksNearly finishedFinished and beautifulThe old homestead now residing in Whangaparaoa12 ISSUE THIRTYfive • 2006


all his people, the head of the chief being considered sacred and any illtreatmentof it an insult. Retribution seemed imminent. For three days theMaoris debated. Patuone, argued that the child should be treated as ‘porangi’or mad, as the action was not willfully wicked. Luckily this view was adoptedand trading resumed.In another story “in 1832 Dacre travelled from Mahurangi to Coromandel inan open boat to get supplies for his men. On landing, a chief brained one ofhis men. Dacre protested so strongly that the chief confessed his error andoffered one of his slaves to be killed as payment.” Needless to say this offerwas not taken up, but it is obvious that Dacre was a man of courage, quickthinking and able to keep his cool in an emergency.In 1832 Dacre began cutting timber on a large scale. He established a sparstation on the Mahurangi inlet, but H.M.S Buffalo took forcible possession ofthe standing trees. Although Dacre had begun squaring spars and preparingmasts and had had the land surveyed by Mr Florence, he left the stationdeclaring that “I remonstrated with the Admiralty but never got any redress.”He and his associate Gordon Browne resurrected his old station at MercuryBay and in 1837 to facilitate the work they erected a sawmill, driven by waterpower. This mill seems to have been the first timber mill in the country.Dacre’s NZ enterprises were not a financial success, but by 1840 he was aleading merchant in Sydney owning a wharf, ships, and a cattle station. Hewas also appointed a magistrate and was a director of the Union Bank ofAustralia and the Sydney Alliance Assurance Company. In the Depression of1842-1844 he became insolvent and set out to recover debts and propertyrights. This lead him back to NZ and in 1848 he purchased the 3,334 acreWeiti block. In 1854 he entered into partnership with Thomas Macky as amerchant and shipping agent and purchased more land including 4,000 acresat Omaha, still referred to as Dacre’s claim. In 1859 the family moved toAuckland, where he became one if its best-known and respected citizens.T. Macky and Co was one of the largest firms in the city, and towards the endof his life Dacre was once again wealthy. Throughout all the trials of being anearly colonist, his wife of 55years was his constantcompanion. About 1878 they returned to England,where he died in 1884Since, my first visit and subsequent delving intoDacre’s history, the cottage is having another leaseof life. In the winter of 2005 Peter Townenddecided the cottage was worth preserving and ahandy location for Yakity Yak visits.He entered into discussion with the RodneyDistrict Council, owners of the land and building.Several working bees by club members and lotsof on-going lawn mowing and talking by Pete havefollowed. Now we have a good base for club tripsand even overnight stays.Pete tells me “There is a BBQ and cookingequipment, all people need to bring is food andbedding and they can sleep in the cottage (onedouble and one single). We have a couple of siton-kayaksfor use and outdoor tables and chairs.Long drop toilets and paper are supplied.“The cottage may be booked by contactingme on 0274 529255 or on email atpete@canoeandkayak.co.nz “ReferencesRogers, Frank.

Coastbusters 2006By Paul HaywardSea Kayaking SymposiumAuckland, March 17-19Coastbusters has been run once everytwo years for about twenty years. Howcan it still be coming up with freshideas and why would people keepgoing back, you may well ask. Well, it’seasy. This sport of sea kayaking has somany fascinating angles.Yes, I know, there are only so many gadgets, somany ‘best’ muesli recipes and so many ‘easyapproaches to using a sextant’. That’s not quitewhat we have in mind. There are whole aspectsto Sea Kayaking that might just stretch yourimagination.This year (for example), we will have the world’sbest kayaking film director. She’s done work forthe BBC, National Geographic and has producedsome DVDs which will get your Aunt Mabel rightonto the edge of her chair. You, of course, wouldjust look bored and refer to the ‘Really excitingstuff we were out in, last weekend...’ Make sureyou watch these before Mabel - you might muffyour lines.Justine will show us how you capture greatfootage from the seat of your kayak, while you’reworking on staying alive.We will have a group of friends, up fromWellington, who have taught themselves to buildand use skin-on-frame kayaks. These deceptivelysimple boats are the closest thing you can find(outside a museum) to what the Inuit paddled for5000-odd years. Not, perhaps, ideal for that weeklongtrip to the Barrier (you’d never get enoughwine into that small volume hull) - but if you wantto roll every-which-way and delve into the originsof our present-day kayak designs, come along andrisk being captured by their enthusiasm.Back by popular demand is the wooden boatdisplay. Boats to drool over and works-of-art thatget paddled every week. Talk to their builders andfind out why they are always planning the nextone.The Inuit kayaking tradition lives on in kayaking’sequivalent to the Highland Games. Everythingfrom harpoon-throwing to rope gymnasticsconsumes a whole week on Greenland’s chillysummer coast. Meet people who have competedand won in conditions that make you shiver - andlisten to their experiences and what has motivatedthem to pursue this quest.This year we are incredibly lucky to have four ofthe world’s most skilled and experiencedGreenland Paddlers - Cheri, Freya, Turner & Greg- who have agreed to come to New Zealand andshow us some extraordinary things that can bedone with a kayak. Not just show us, but help usto try them ourselves. If this doesn’t push you toimprove your boat skills, we’ll be very surprised.“What of our great NZ paddlers?” I hear you ask.John Kirk Anderson, Paul Caffyn (and hopefullyBen Foughy) are just some of our well-knownkayakers who will be coming along to share theirexpertise. If you’ve heard them before, you’llknow that they don’t stand still. If their namesdon’t yet mean anything to you, it’s time they did.Heroes are interesting folk.Well, OK, we will have some ‘normal’ stuff too. Theobligatory food sessions, ones on great localkayaking destinations, kayak maintenance, gearand gadgets - we’ll find new twists. A kayakingPhysio is a must-attend. He sealed his fate whenhe got the acupuncture needles out of his lunchbox on a club trip last year - and sorted out ashoulder problem between sandwiches.At the last Coastbusters, we asked DoC to comealong and have a workshop on what kayakersmeant to them. They must have enjoyed it as muchas we did, since they’ve agreed to come back and,this time, are bringing Conservators fromNorthland, Waikato, and Coromandel as well asfrom Auckland. If you want to contribute somegood ideas, or constructively tell DoC what theycould be doing better (or just hear what they havein the planning stages) you can’t get any closer tothe horse’s mouth...There’s formal information transfer atCoastbusters, but many of the people who comeevery time say it’s the informal lessons that bringthem back. Bet you wish tea-time lasted longer atwork... well, you probably will at Coastbusters too.One of the first things we do is hook you up withseven other kayakers. Just for a quick get-toknow-you10 minutes. So, even if you’ve neverseen another soul at the event, within a fewminutes you’ve got a few whose names you know.14 ISSUE THIRTYfive • 2006


I was at a crossroads,determined to spendmore time focussingon activities thatchallenged myselfand others. Thecourse helped me todecide that I eitherhad to get seriousabout my dreams orthey would only everbe just that - dreams.I didn’t want to lookback ten years laterand wonder, “Whatwould my life hadlooked like if I hadtaken that risky step?”Of course, at that time I didn’t know what that risky step really was! What Idid know was that I wanted to work in the outdoors and with people at theirgrowing point.All this was a far cry from my role as a Presbyterian minister of some sixteenyears. This, however, was coming to a close as financial constraints meantthat the church could no longer afford to employ me. So here I was, strandedbetween the end of what I knew, and the beginning of the unknown.Ever been there? It’s a very uncomfortable place, but also one that enables amove forward into new territory. The possibilities expand, and newopportunities present themselves. And so it was for my wife Joy and myself.Joy was busy with a private counselling practice of her own, but she too knewthat we were heading in a new direction. One day we dropped into theHamilton shop and saw the business was for sale. A few phone calls, a fewmeetings, a few sleepless nights, and suddenly, we’re in a new place that wecould never have imagined a few short months previously.Joy and I are slowly getting to grips with how to operate a busy little shopand we’re already realising the need for help! We will sometimes call on theservices of our children, Amanda aged 19 and Sarah, aged 16, but we knowthat we also need to employ people who can guide and instruct. We do havesome future potential help in the form of a grandson, Sairis, (sounds like“Cyrus”), who is 6 months old. We have to wait a bit for that help but we lookforward to influencing him as our first little “paddle rat.”Do drop in the shop and say “Hello”. We would love to catch up with youand discuss your kayaking interest and needs.Tony BarrettWaikato PaddleratWAIKATOKILLARNEY ROADSH1BYPASSDUKE STREETKAHIKATEA DRIVENORTHGREENWOOD STDUKE STREETKAHIKATEA DRIVEThe Corner Greenwood St& Duke St, State Highway 1 bypassHamiltonTelephone: 07 847 5565For SaleKayak ShopsInterested inowning your ownkayak shop?Canoe & Kayak Ltd is ready toopen Licensed Operations inWhangareiand at selectedSouth Island locationsPhone: 09 473 0036Peter TownendManaging Director, Canoe & Kayak Ltdand I’ll be glad to have a chat.All approaches will be dealt with in confidence.ISSUE THIRTYfive • 2006 17


OUTDOORS WITHAspects of OutdoorLeadership: Know ThyselfBy Ray HollingsworthThe kayaking session on the lake hadbeen postponed because of the wind,but the afternoon was full of thepromise of an exciting canyoning trip.The group clomped down the muddytrack, squeaking in their wetsuits,chatting nervously. The abseil into theMangatepopo Gorge had a fiercereputation and this grey day didnothing to dispel qualms. I was in a coinstructingrole, rigging the abseil forthe first time, feeling as nervous as myclients both because of the activity andbecause the Chief Instructor, MartyBeare, was observing us.At one point in the set-up, I casually clipped thesafety rope into a very thin tree branch andcontinued final preparations. My co-instructornoticed nothing. Marty, however, quietly sidled upto me and suggested that “The safety line anchorcould be improved”. Then he showed me how. Nofuss, no ego games in front of the group.Preparations complete, I clipped in anddescended into the Gorge, with the river roaringfar below.Embarrassing and EnlighteningOver the years I’ve thought about that momentand how embarrassing and enlightening it was forme. Embarrassing because I instantly felt like adrop-kick incompetent, because I should haveknown better, but had let my nervousness cloudmy thinking. Embarrassing because I’d run lots ofabseiling sessions, but none for quite a while andI had got rusty. It was a wake-up call, a warningnot to assume knowledge will be there but tomake sure it is.More significant however, was the way in whichMarty conducted himself that day, with theprescience to be there in the first place, the quietintervention and, later, the chat in the office overthe cup of tea. It was an impressive display of aman at the top of his game - he recognized apotential problem, he provided the safety net, hemade space for learning and growth.How Good Are You?One of the hardest things about developing yourleadership abilities is working out how good youactually are at various skills. What do you measureyourself against? Your peers? A mentor? Anindustry qualification? I know people who havepassed NZOIA Rock 1 with minimal experienceand inconsistent set-ups, yet now hold the samequalification as someone with a vast array ofclimbing experiences built up over years. I haveseen a group of aspirant leaders so caught up inthe world that they have created aroundthemselves that they were oblivious to their faults.No amount of suggestions, hints, or directivescould convince them that they neededimprovement. Their peer group provided acomforting cushion of ill-informed competence.Perhaps the key to working out where you are at,is to find someone or something that you respectand compare yourself to them or it. It may be achecklist of the qualities and attributes which anoutdoor instructor should have as in the book“Effective Leadership in Adventure Programming”by Simon Priest and Mike Gass. Work through thelist and ask yourself “Do I have these yet?”. If not,they become goals that you set for yourself.It could be an individual whose career you wishto emulate or whose qualities are desirable.Exposure to Marty’s calm competence andproactive involvement was something thatinspired me to attain these qualities. Later, whenI found myself in a similar role as Marty, I used thememory of how he had treated me, to guide myinteraction with new staff.Development Is A Conscious DecisionSometimes it’s a ‘pick’n’mix’ approach that worksbest - you see qualities or skills in a host of peoplethat you desire for yourself; these provide theyardstick to measure your development. When Iwas learning the trade, I wanted Bev Smith’s abilityto smile and play on rainy days; Mick Hopkinson’smastery of a variety of technical pursuits; WillMacQueen’s calmness under stress; and BrianStaite’s madcap sense of humour. I consciouslyworked on those attributes; proof of progresscame with every testing situation.Of course there are some dangers inherent incomparing yourself with others; there will alwaysbe someone who climbs or paddles harder thanyou. And what makes these people achieve in onetechnical area - for example, total focus - may bea handicap in a group or society. Similarly, youmay have attributes that are important but notnecessarily valued by a dominant peer group.Women in the outdoors often battle with aperceived lack of technical virtuosity, while theirability to empathise with and motivate studentsgoes unnoticed.Industry qualifications, such as those offered byNZOIA (NZ Outdoor Instructors Association) orMSC (NZ Mountain Safety Council) or SKOANZ(Sea Kayak Operators Association of NZ) are asolid yardstick to compare yourself against. Theyhold up a pretty reasonable mirror to yourabilities and provide a clear pathway to achievingtechnical skills. But they are a starting point, not afinish line.What Makes You Unique?Perhaps the fastest measure of your strengths andweaknesses as an outdoor leader is to ask thepeople that you work with. From canyon guide totramping club leader to sea kayak guide, everyperson running a show should solicit feedback atsome point, from both clients and fellow workers.By having the feedback written down, it allowsyou to chew over it in your own time. To ensureyou receive comment on what you want, make aform with specific questions that you wantanswered, eg: What do you feel are my strengths?How could I improve my performance as a leader?How would you rate the pre-trip planning/information? If people are given the appropriatetime and space and encouragement to fill thisform out, usually you will receive honest,thoughtful answers.Lastly, we all have things to work on, anddeveloping the ability to analyse your ownperformance is a necessary thing to do. Butequally we all have useful skills and attributes thatnot only make us unique but also bring a positivespin to our leadership role. Make a list. Knowthyself. One of the things I’ve discovered aboutmyself that has been extraordinarily useful atbuilding relationships with clients, is my love ofmusical trivial pursuits. Just ask “Who were theseven greatest rock guitarists as voted by MelodyMaker magazine in 1969?” to the next group youhave; sure as eggs someone will get hooked in!18 ISSUE THIRTYfive • 2006

Motiti by Lesley NoelSpur of the moment is wonderful thing. Four Clubbieshaving a free Friday decided to do a trip out to Motiti Island.We had been looking at this trip for some time andconditions were ideal. We met at six am down at the end ofPapamoa beach. It was dark and the only thing to be heardwas the gentle lap of waves on the shore.The Island always looked so far away and I was apprehensive. We had takentwo demo boats out as well as Irene’s penguin and my Tasman Elite. Big Stevetook some time getting himself organized in the Challenge 5 and while hewas fluffing around I took some pictures of the dawn with Roger in the EuroX. What a way to watch the sun come up, sitting on calm seas with an excitingtrip ahead.The trip actually only took about an hour and a half to cover the 10 kms toWairere Bay having gone around Taumaihi Island. Taumaihi is not an Islandmost of the time, it joins Motiti by a rocky causeway which can only becrossed either side of high tide. Once landed we were joined by one of themanagers of the avocado orchard on the Island and with us all beinginterested in the place he offered to take us on a tiki tour of the Island. Wewalked up thru a huge cutting, made for future exports of their fruit. At thetop we climbed into his four-wheel drive and he took us through theplantings up to the highest point where we could survey all. They have over16000 avocado trees planted and will soon be a major player in the industry,as there is a micro climate on the Island which results in the fruit being ripeat least two weeks earlier than elsewhere. No possums and few rats help aswell. This is a privately owned Island half by avocado growers and the otherby Maori. An airstrip helps with transportation to and fro. A new landing/jetty where the cut has been made will be the major way of transportingthe fruit.We were back in our kayaks just in time to scrape over the rocks and nothave to go around Taumaihi Island. We cruised slowly up the inside coast ofMotiti rock gardening where we could. About half way up the Island is TeRotoharakeke Point and around the corner to Orongatea Bay, where there isthe only accommodation on the Island, a lodge. The beach was long anddeserted and we landed to have a bite to eat. After swapping boats we cruisedfurther up the coast to find seals on the rocks and even in the water to playwith us. We made the farthermost point past Te Manaiti Point and could seethe outside sea was a little rougher than where we were. Time didn’t allowus to circumnavigate the Island so we turned around and made a quick stopon the previous beach, and swapped kayaks again. Coming into the beachwe disturbed at least a dozen large stingrays sunning themselves in theshallow waters. From there we took off back to the mainland keeping oureye on the radio aerial which would bring us back to the cars.It was the most awesome sea to kayak in, oily calm. Pictures don’t conveyadequately the feeling. We arrived back at the beach at 3pm having to braveonly a small surf landing. In summer snorkeling and swimming will be a mustfor a return visit and with longer days it will be another awesome trip.24 ISSUE THIRTYfive • 2006

Blue Duck Territoryby Louise TuinRuapehu is one of the last strongholdsof blue ducks in New Zealand. Tuckedaway 25 km southwest of Taumarunui,in the bush streams and rivers of theRetaruke Valley exists a more thanaverage healthy population of theendangered birds. Their habitat is thefast flowing rapids of the RetarukeRiver, their diet the larvae and flyingstages of aquatic insects. Protectingthese vulnerable birds is not an easytask, but a necessary one as they arehigh on New Zealand’s list of nationallyendangered species.Doing their bit for conservation are owners of BlueDuck Lodge, Dan Steele and Louise Tuin. BlueDuck Lodge in Whakahoro, is a destination foradventure and spectacular scenery. It is a tributeto the area to have blue ducks that prefer theabsolute highest quality of water. Situated in aclearing on the banks of the Retaruke River, thelodge offers comfortable accommodation for amaximum of 8 people. Guests primarily come hereto retreat and relax, while enjoying the outdoorsthrough walking, horse trekking and mountainbiking over the privately owned 6000 acres farm,much of which is native bush that has been fencedoff and protected for restoration. Visitors can dotheir own bit for conservation by kayaking partsof the Retaruke River to survey blue ducks, andfish for trout, which is deemed environmentalistas these fish compete with the blue duck for food!In order to protect the blue duck habitat, many ofthe riverbanks have been fenced, trap lines havebeen placed to catch their predator stoats andrats, and work has begun to survey and band allof the resident blue ducks. While conservationwork is specifically aimed at saving the Whio, itwill naturally protect all native wild life includingnative bats, the kiwi, which can be heard at nightfrom the Lodge, and also a rare species of GiantSnail, which has been documented here.With varying levels of difficulty there is kayakingfor everyone on the Retaruke River. The lowerstretch is the most frequently paddled. This entails15 km of river which can be kayaked inapproximately 2 hours, with up to standard Grade2 rapids. During last year’s survey the DOC teamcounted 8 ducks and banded four here. Carry afishing rod and stop at some of the convenientpicnic spots to fish. Further upriver the whitewater rages and kayaking is for themore adventurous with gorges, papashoots and small waterfalls tomanoeuvre. There is an immensevariety of scenery here and the bushis extremely compact with lowlandforest, gorges, canyons, papa rock,waterfalls and wildlife to view. Thecondensed scenery towers above asthe kayak glides through the pristinewaters. In February last year DOCcounted 42 ducks on the entire stretchof the river. The upper Retaruke iscomparatively untouched and theducks are not as frequently surveyed.There are several good put in places,for a total of 2 days paddling, which canbe done in two or three parts.At Whakahoro, the Retaruke flows intothe Whanganui River and goes on formiles. A few hours kayak from heretakes you into the heart of theWhanganui National Park and you canreturn to the lodge by jet boat. Explorethe untouched Retaruke River, whichis becoming more beautiful andspecial through these conservationefforts. As the blue duck numbersbuild up it is becoming a wild lifesanctuary. In the meantime, there iswork to be done, grab your kayak andcome and count some ducks.28 ISSUE THIRTYfive • 2006


What an absolutely fabulous event we’ve all just had! The 2006 Speight’s Coast to Coastwas a ripper. We were blessed with superb weather, a fast river and a tail wind on thelast cycle section. I have to go back to 1994 to match those conditions.I was ever so pleased to be able to offer everyone in the event a spot prize, the first timea major sporting event in New Zealand has done so.I will do this again for the 2007 event - the 25th Anniversary Speight’s Coast to Coast.Next year is going to be a beauty. I’m inviting back all the “originals” from 1983 to competeor to watch along with all the “original” officials. There will be a new teams section forthe Interschool Championships for students between 16 and 18 years, male and female,and a few other special things that you will hear about during the year.Tell your friends who want to do the event to register on info@coasttocoast.co.nzNow relax and enjoy the rest of the summerRegards,Robin Judkins.Official 2006 ResultsISSUE THIRTYfive • 2006 29

Speight’s Coast to Coast 2006The Spirit of New ZealandWith the 24th year under the belt, it is time once again toreflect on another fantastic event. Rob Howarth reports onsome remarkable tales that make this event the backboneof New Zealand multisport.When Richard Ussher made his way up onto the stage for the secondsuccessive year to collect his World Championship Gold Medal, there wasan air of a champion about him. Only Steve Gurney (numerous) and JohnJacoby (1988/89) have won the ‘Open Men’s Longest Day’ consecutively. Withthe Adventure Racing World Champs still in his legs Richard Ussher was notthe favourite going into this years race. However an awesome effort on themountain run cemented his position and despite a brave attempt by secondplace Gordon Walker on the final bike leg (clawing back 8 minutes) hecrossed the finish line at Sumner Beach just under 6 minutes ahead of Walker.Gordon Blythen , who opted out of the veteren’s category in favour of theopen men’s, finished 3rd.The women’s one day race was equally close with 10 competitors finishingwithin 45 minutes of each other. Emily Miazga (Canada) fought back on thekayak and final bike legs to claim victory over Elina Rautila (Finland).In the individual 2 day race Benje Patterson came home ahead of StevenMckinstry while Sophie Hart beat Chrissie Wellington (UK) in the womensevent.In the 2 day teams, Neil Gellatly and Robert Loveridge claimed the men’sprize while Sarah Hayman and Eloise Watson pipped Charlotte andMadelaine Martin to the post.Richard Ussher paid homage to the hundreds of every day competitors whoadd atmosphere and camaraderie to this grandfather event of the Kiwimultisport calendar. He is so right, of course, we love to read about the topguys and girls but there is so much that happens further down the field. Raceorganizer Robin Judkins spent the previous hour or so awarding medals andtelling the most amazing stories to a packed auditorium - here are just acouple!:• Imagine cycling along the first stage and losing your contact lenses?Imagine also the horror of arriving at transition and realizing that youhave no spare set and you can’t see bugger all! One brave lady decidedthat this was not going to stop her and off she set on the mountain run.She teamed up with another lady and they ran together toward GoatPass. As the semi blind competitor stumbled across the rocks her newfriend asked if she was ok “You seem to be tripping over quite a fewrocks, are you alright?” “No” came the reply “I’ve lost my contact lenses!”Judkins jokingly worked out that the odds on the new friend having aset of identical contacts would be about 750,000:1. I guess it was thelady’s lucky day, because she did!!• Noel Mckay from Hamilton was competing in the individual veteranmen’s two day event. His race was going according to plan until the lastcycle section into Christchurch. Noel was riding in a bunch and clippedthe rear wheel of a competitor in front. Pop goes his wheel and he walkshis bike to the side of The Old West Coast Road. There is no backup cyclesupport in sight. Fortunately there is plenty of local support along theOld West Coast Road and Noel gets chatting to a farmer who was sittingon the side of the road watching the race. “Your bikes buggered” saidthe farmer. “I know” replies Noel. “I’ve got on old 10 speed in the shed”says the farmer, “I’ll go and pump the tyres up”. Noel hops on and carrieson his merry way finishing the race in a very respectable time!!These stories are just two out of many that make The Speight’s Coast to CoastNew Zealand’s favourite multisport Race. Full race results are printed in thisissue of New Zealand Kayak Magazine but congratulations to all whocompleted their event, whether one day or two day, teams or individual.Here’s to 2007.Watch out for a series of articles focusing on some of this year’s competitors- starting in the next issue.ISSUE THIRTYfive • 2006 31

Shearwater from Q-KayaksThe new Shearwater from Quality Kayaks has only beenon our shelves for a couple of weeks but already it hasbegun to turn heads.Ever since the first sightings of the skin on wood kayaks paddled by thenatives of the Arctic regions of Asia, North America, and Greenland; themodern kayak designers have been continually trying to improve onthese primitive models. In our quest to produce the finest kayaks, kayakmanufacturers have improved on the materials used, redesigned theshape of the kayaks and enhanced the fittings and features.The Shearwater is a moderate length polyethylene roto-moulded sea kayakthat is only 4.8 metres long. The truth is the Shearwater has the same hull(bottom half) as the Penguin but has a slightly larger cockpit. The increasein size is not only beneficial to the more ‘solid’ paddler but there has beena significant improvement in the manoeuvrability of the kayak.The standard weight of the Shearwater is 26.5 kg and the lightweightversion is only 23 kg. Even I can lift that onto my car. Due to the universalhull, the speed of this kayak should be identical to the Penguin. Goodsafety colours of yellow, red, orange or flame help with visibility.The kayak has a combined storage capacity in both front and rear hatchesof 143 litres, which is a couple of litres shy of the Penguin. The differencethough is very apparent with the increase in cockpit size from 160 litresin the Penquin to a whopping 190 litres in the Shearwater. This may meanthat the kayak is more prone to windage (something Wellington doesn’thave much of!). The change of hull shape in the water as the kayak isedged over to one side changes the turning of the Shearwatersignificantly. Actually the kayak turns on the spot. Four or five goodsweep strokes enable the Shearwater to complete a speedy 360° turn -try achieving that with another sea kayak.Other improvements include a security/ towing bar located behind thecockpit combing, a new seat and padded backrest, a sturdy new rudderwith a larger wheel to facilitate raising and lowering the rudder with ease,and a recess for the paddle to enable the paddler to fish, read a chart ormake coffee with the paddle in an easy to reach position.Quality Kayaks have successfully created a stable, highly manoeuvrablemulti-day sea kayak that is at home rock gardening, on expeditions orjust playing around in the surf- and I want one!Kayak reports or ‘opinions’ can be very subjective and one person’sLamborghini is another person’s Morris Minor. The best advice on whichkayak best suits you should begin with a chat with your local Canoe andKayak retail salesperson and then by trying a few kayaks out on the waterto narrow your search. Only by spending a fair amount of time can youaccurately assess each kayak in varying conditions.12 MARCH 2006Run 13kmCycle 58kmKayak 19km90 kilometres coast to coast acrossthe Auckland isthmus.
