• By Kristie Boland

LYTTELTON put on a great

show for the first race day of

the Naval Point Yacht Club

centenary on Friday.

Although numbers were

down on previous years, more

than 100 people turned up to

watch the yachts race.

DIAMOND Harbour residents

may soon have a new community

garden where they can access free

vegetables and herbs.

Te Ahu Patiki/Mt Herbert

Community Garden Group is

seeking a lease over Laurenson

Park to develop a community

garden for residents.

The group plans to create a

garden that would include vegetables,

herbs, berry plantings, an

orchard and a food forest, along

with a wildflower area that would

encourage pollinating insects.

The plan also includes a family

and children’s area, complete with

a barbecue and play area.

But Diamond Harbour resident

Bex Gibbs said she would prefer to

see a dog park or native walkway

in Laurenson Park.

“For local parents, we want to

have large open green spaces that

are accessible within the community.

It would make a place for a

nice central hub for our kids to go

and play,” said Gibbs.

So far the city council has

received 76 submissions on the

community garden plan.

The project will be open for

feedback until December 6.

Removal of fanworm begins in harbour

LYTTELTON Port Company’s

dive team recently began

removing marine pest

Mediterranean fanworm (Sabella

spallanzanii) from the inner

harbour.

Three divers plus a dive attendant

began the arduous task of

removing the fanworm by hand

at Te Ana Marina. The marina is

one of six immediate high-risk

locations under investigation in

the harbour over at least the next

three months.

Fanworm has been present

in low numbers in the inner

harbour for over a decade and

is a threat to native biodiversity

and commercial marine farming

operations.

But the trend in the number

detected over recent surveys has

risen and the likelihood of continued

spread within and beyond

the inner harbour has made this

issue a high priority.

The fanworm is a large worm

with a long, leathery tube that is

pale brown in colour. The tube

is usually fixed to a hard surface

and can grow up to 80cm in

length. They have long tentacles

at the top of the tube, which look

like a spiral fan and are usually

orange, purple or white.

Fanworm attaches to hard

structures in sheltered marine

environments, including pontoons,

piles and vessels. They

are easily spread by vessel movements

and reproduce rapidly.

Training is required to be able

to properly identify the fanworm

from the native tubeworm and

then effectively remove it.

LPC’s immediate response

will see divers travel along

underwater surfaces within the

target areas and remove the pest

by hand.

The wider response will be

led by Environment Canterbury

and the Ministry for Primary

Industries to survey and remove

fanworm from other areas within

the harbour.

LPC project lead Kirsty

Brennan said the immediate

campaign is an important one to

kick off in the inner harbour.

“We needed to get this project

underway as soon as possible

really given the known hot spots,

and with help from our project

partners we were thankfully able

to get started at the beginning of

November,” she said.

“Fanworm can multiply

quickly, so we want to reduce

the population to stop its spread,

especially going into the warmer

where the fanworm (below) has been identified.

months when vessel movements

are only going to increase.”

Funding has been granted

from the Whaka Ora Healthy

Harbour project to contract

commercial dive services, and

funding and resources are being

provided by LPC to contribute to

the immediate response and to

the long-term plan.

Mountain biker happy to be back

Mountain biker

Ethan Rose is back

in Christchurch after

competing in his first

UCI Junior World Series.

He talks to Fiona Ellis

about the highlights

and challenges that

come with seven months

of competing in Europe

AS ETHAN ROSE tumbled to

the ground in a tangle of spokes

and handlebars, he knew the

under-19 UCI mountain bike

world championships race

was going to contain an extra

challenge.

Half a year after Rose won the

national under-19 championships

in February, he was in Italy,

competing in the world-class

event for the first time.

“Me and

some other guy

tangled bars

going over the

first 400 [metres]

and both

tumbled down

the bank,” the

Ethan Rose

18-year-old said.

Although

uninjured, once he was back

on track he realised he had lost

precious time.

“I came through the start

loop, I think, two minutes back

already, like 50th.”

Pushing hard throughout the

rest of the race, he made a good

recovery and finished in 12th.

“I looked at my lap times at

the end and I think they were

like top-five kind of lap times,

which was a bit frustrating,”

Rose said.

Although crowded tracks were

a hazard of the sport, it was not

one he often encountered on

home territory.

“There are way more people

[in Europe] and they’re all quick

people as well . . . the depth of

field is just massive.

“In New Zealand, you don’t

really get that because there’s not

that many of you.”

Rose returned home last

month after spending seven

months in Europe competing

in the junior world series, with

the world championships as the

main event.

Based in Switzerland, he

travelled around Europe to

compete in a variety of countries,

Austria.

and had some good results, he

said. This included winning a

race in Austria, coming second

in Switzerland, and third in races

in Italy, France and Spain.

“I was pretty happy with

it. It was just good to get over

there, really. Last year was a

bit disappointing because we

couldn’t do anything.”

His plans to compete in

Europe last year were scrapped

after the outbreak of the

Covid-19 pandemic, which also

forced him to return to New

Zealand shortly after arriving in

the United States for what

would have been a fourcompetition

set.

“It was quite hard to know

what to do, really . . . it was

training but without purpose.”

Next year he will leave the

junior category and compete in

the under-23 age bracket and

would be eligible to compete in

the World Cup series, which was

his goal.

“It’s going to be a big step up

but it should be good.”

Older riders, who had made

the jump from junior champions

to World Cup competitors, were

on hand for advice.

“I do plenty of riding with

them. They kind of tell you how

it works.”

Training six days out of seven

for a weekly total of up to 25

hours, the sport was almost a

full-time job.

When not training or

competing, he also worked in

an engineering workshop that

allowed him a flexible schedule.

He got into mountain biking at

nine because Christchurch had a

good cross-country scene, he said.

“The first race I did was

up in the Port Hills, at the

Christchurch Singletrack Club.

They just had races every week,

so I belonged to them.”

home after rough ride overseas

PEDAL POWER: Ethan

Rose on the podium after

finishing third at the Coupe

de France de VTT Ussel in

August.

Right - Rose representing

New Zealand at the UCI

mountain bike world

championships.

Rose’s father was also a keen

rider, which encouraged him to

take up the sport.

“We used to always ride

together, and he took me to races

and did them as well.”

For years his father was the

quicker of the two, before Rose

eventually overtook him.

“I was maybe 16, so I think he’s

got over it now.”

On leaving school, Rose

struggled with the decision of

whether to pursue his racing

career or to study instead.

“It’s kind of hard, you’ve got to

bite the bullet and get over that.”

His career highlight so far

was winning the national

championships.

Arriving back in New Zealand

in October, he had already taken

part in the tour of Southland

earlier this month.

Coming from two weeks of

MIQ isolation, he enjoyed being

back in the saddle.

He was now working more,

aiming to save money for next

year’s wave of competitions.

Now living in Christchurch,

Rose said the biggest challenge

of his cycling career was finding

the funds.

“It’s not hard to ride your

bike all the time, I enjoy it. It

doesn’t feel like I’m forcing it

or anything, it’s just getting the

money to do it.”

His dream was to follow in

the footsteps of other New

Zealand riders who were part of

professional European teams, he

said.

“It’s every rider’s dream to

get on a pro team and make it

your job – get paid to ride your

bike.”

Will

by Will smith and mark manson

The ‘Event’ Autobiography of the Year - a brave, inspiring and wildly

entertaining memoir full of self-help lessons for readers, from one of the

world’s most charismatic and much-loved actors. One of the most dynamic

and globally recognised entertainment forces of our time opens up fully about

his life, in a brave and inspiring book that traces his learning curve to a place

where outer success, inner happiness, and human connection are aligned.

Along the way, Will tells the story in full of one of the most amazing rides

through the worlds of music and film that anyone has ever had. This memoir

is the product of a profound journey of self-knowledge, a reckoning with all

that your will can get you and all that it can leave behind. The combination

of genuine wisdom of universal value and a life story that is preposterously

entertaining, even astonishing, puts Will the book, like its author, in a category

by itself.

Shackleton - A biography

by ranulph Fiennes

An authoritative biography of Sir Ernest Shackleton from polar adventurer

Ranulph Fiennes. In 1915, Sir Ernest Shackleton’s attempt to traverse the

Antarctic was cut short when his ship, Endurance, became trapped in ice.

The disaster left Shackleton and his men alone at the frozen South Pole,

fighting for their lives. Their survival and escape is the most famous

adventure in history. Shackleton is an engaging new account of the

adventurer, his life and his incredible leadership under the most extreme of

circumstances. Written by polar adventurer Sir Ranulph Fiennes who followed

in Shackleton’s footsteps, he brings his own unique insights to bear on these

infamous expeditions.

Shackleton is both re-appraisal and a valediction, separating the man from

the myth he has become.

The Spirit of Cardrona: Where Dreams

are Hatched

the inspirational story of the cardrona distillery

by desiree reid-Whitaker

‘Ever since I was really little, I have dreamed big dreams. It’s nice to imagine what

could be, and leave it at that. But I’ve never been that sort of dreamer. I’ve always

wanted to take one of my dreams, find just the right one-and turn it into something

real.’ The Spirit of Cardrona is the story of how former dairy-farmer Desiree

Reid-Whitaker and her husband Ash took a risk to realise a dream of setting up

a world-class distillery. Their quest to produce a single-malt whisky that would

compete with the best whiskies in the world is classic story of Kiwi persistence,

sacrifice and self-made success. It’s also a modern-day tale of living off the land in

the high-country. The Spirit of Cardrona is an inspirational business story that will

appeal to anyone who loves a bold, brave and brilliant entrepreneur.

Last Shot

by Jock Zonfrillo

A coming-of-age memoir of addiction, ambition and redemption in the highstakes

world of Michelin star kitchens. From reckless drug addict to one of

Australia’s top chefs and television stars: MasterChef judge Jock Zonfrillo’s

powerful life story will shock and inspire. Jock’s life spiralled out of control

when he tried heroin for the first time as a teenager while growing up in 1980s

Glasgow. For years he balanced a career as a rising star amongst legendary

chefs with a crippling drug addiction that took him down many dark paths. On

New Year’s Eve 1999, Jock shot up his last shot of heroin before boarding a

plane to Sydney, where he would find passion and new meaning in life in the

most unexpected places. There would be more struggles ahead, including two

failed marriages, the closure of his prized restaurant during COVID-19, his time

on-country, and some very public battles. This is his unforgettable story.

Clare Reilly: Eye of the Calm

by clare reilly

An exploration of New Zealand painter Clare Reilly’s life and work. The

mixture of autobiographical writing and gorgeous paintings subtly shows

how Reilly’s art and experiences are entwined. Her themes cover the issues

of habitat destruction and renewal, depicting native New Zealand birds in

the landscape as metaphors for joy. In an increasingly troubled and fast

paced world, Reilly’s work offers the viewer a place to reflect on the healing

qualities of nature and gather a sense of revitalisation. ‘Eye of the Calm’

was an exhibition title used by Reilly as an expression of her life’s work.

This expression is continued here with an insight into her beginnings as an

artist and her subsequent career. Reilly has a strong connection to coastal

New Zealand and a great love of the country’s wildlife. A beautiful, meditative

exploration of a life and a life’s work.

Nuk

Korako spent time in

Cholmondeley himself as a child

board member.

“As a Cholmondeley alumni, I

see the opportunity to contribute

to the iconic organisation that

helped my family all those years

ago,” said Korako.

He said during his time on the

board he has seen children being

welcomed to Cholmondeley for

different reasons than his own all

those years ago.

“Today we see very different

circumstances due to the social

disorders that plague our society,

through drug and alcohol abuse

leading to whānau violence and

solo parenting, leaving deep scars

on our children,” said Korako.

Korako recently biked 720km

from Rāpaki to Bluff to fund

raise for Renee Veal who needs a

jaw reconstruction surgery.

His trip contributed $35,000

towards the $90,000 needed.

Korako will be the first

Māori patron for Cholmondeley.

“Nuk’s long history with

Cholmondeley, his standing

in the community, business

acumen, experience, and advice

will be invaluable in so many

ways,” said Cholmondeley

Wallace.

In the 96 years Cholmondeley

help with other household

The volunteers understand

Christmas can be a

and want to support them

through delivering services

for those who can’t access

transport.

Volunteers deliver food

parcels and presents to

about 30 families a year.

The most vulnerable of

the society’s clients experience

domestic violence,

physical and mental health

issues and have limited

resources to provide for

themselves and their

children.

The society understands

debt and poor accommodation

standards are a major

issue for some families

with costs, such as winter

power bills, making things

difficult to keep warm and

dry.

A free budget advice service

has been established

in recent months for clients

who are in debt or struggling

to pay their weekly

bills.

While the society has

access to weekly supplies

from the Aotearoa Food

Bank, such as expired or

Wednesday November 17 2021 Bay Harbour News

INTRODUCING Sammy the sea lion,

looking particularly photogenic in this

picture from April 1956, when he graced

Lyttelton harbour with his presence.

The New Zealand sea lion (Phocarctos

hookeri) is also known as Hooker’s sea

lion, and as whakahao or rāpoka by

Māori.

Males can reach impressive sizes and

weights of up to 3.5 metres long and 450

kilograms, with females about half that

size.

Sea lions eat fish, squid, crustaceans,

birds and even other marine mammals

such as fur seals, but in turn are hunted by

the great white shark and sometimes sport

significant scarring if they have escaped

encounters.

From the 13th to the 19th centuries,

subsistence hunting by Māori and commercial

hunting by Pakeha decimated

sea lion numbers around New Zealand’s

coastline, until legal prohibition on hunting

them was introduced in 1893.

Nowadays, their numbers are affected

by being caught as bycatch in the squid

industry, by bacterial diseases and by

declining access to preferred food

sources, resulting in malnutrition and

starvation.

Ninety-nine per cent of the current

population breed on the sub-Antarctic,

the Auckland and the Campbell Islands,

although since the 1990s small numbers

have again been breeding on the Otago

Peninsula, Stewart Island and the Catlins.

NEWS 11

Treasures from the past:

Sammy the sea lion

In 2008, the population was estimated

at approximately 9000. Under the Department

of Conservation’s New Zealand

Threat Classification System, they are

defined as nationally vulnerable. They

also have the dubious record of being

the most endangered sea lion species

globally. (https://www.doc.govt.nz/nature/

native-animals/marine-mammals/seals/

new-zealand-sea-lion/)

So how did Sammy end up in port and

what became of him? Perhaps there are

locals out there who remember his visit?

We would love to hear from you if you

can fill in any details of his story. Contact

has an animal theme. It is now available

Pancreatic cancer

treatment survey

Have you been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer?

By completing this ten-minute, anonymous survey about a particular medication

treatment used in pancreatic cancer, you may be able to help us identify better access

to treatments for all New Zealanders with pancreatic cancer.

We want to use this survey to identify who has been offered Pancreatic Enzyme

Replacement Therapy (PERT). The pancreas is important in digestion and PERT is a

treatment that can help people with pancreatic cancer digest their kai.

We have little information in Aotearoa New Zealand about who is being offered this

medicine and how it is being taken. Our goal is to identify who does and does not

have access to this treatment and how we might improve access to those who need it.

This national survey is being conducted by investigators at the University of Otago.

The survey has been approved by a Human Research Ethics Committee.

3 tsp active dry yeast

1 ½ cups hot (not boiling)

Place yeast, hot water, flour,

Himalayan salt in a stand

up mixer with the K attachment.

Think about a bouquet of

flowers while you are doing it.

Drizzle with more olive oil and

Once it has doubled in size

(at least), drizzle with more oil,

sprinkle with salt and pop into

a pre-heated 190 deg C oven for

around 30min until browned

Fortuner provides all the answers

I’M OFTEN asked what is the

best sport utility vehicle? The

choice in today’s market is vast.

I usually answer with three

questions, what size? How many

seats? And what is it going to be

used for?

Depending on the answer to

the last question, I reply by saying

there are two fundamental

differences in construction that

must be taken into account, and

they are quite technical.

However, put simply, there is

the option between ladder frame

and monocoque construction.

The rigid ladder-like frame

vehicle carries the engine and

drivetrain, a separate body construction

is mounted on it. The

monocoque frame, on the other

hand, has a unitised frame and

body combined.

Most of today’s SUVs are

monocoque, but if you want a

serious four-wheel-drive vehicle

that will take you to the backblocks

and beyond then a ladder

frame vehicle is best, although

it’s not quite so user-friendly

in close confine environments.

You see, almost all of the ladder

frame SUVs in today’s market

are based on a light truck/utility

chassis; take Toyota’s Fortuner,

for example, it sits on the Hilux

platform.

Along with the chassis underneath

that will take you

places, ladder frame models

have advanced four-wheel-drive

systems, they require input from

the driver through complex

dial-in modes, depending on

what is required for the journey

ahead, taking into account all

have a low ratio gearing mechanism

that allows for crawl-speed

motion over rough ground.

Toyota’s Fortuner was late in

the SUV market here, it followed

Mitsubishi’s Challenger/

Pajero Sport, Isuzu’s MU series,

Ford’s Everest, Holden’s recently

departed Colorado 7/Trailblazer

and Nissan’s first and second

generation Pathfinder.

Nevertheless, the Fortuner

has gained good ground in the

serious SUV market in the five

years it has been here, and it has

just had a mild facelift.

It also gets the uprated powerplant

that arrived in the heavily-facelifted

Hilux a year ago.

The big 2.8-litre turbocharged

diesel is now rated at 150kW and

500Nm, up 20kW and 50Nm.

Thanks to a new cylinder block,

pistons and turbo design modifications,

emissions have been

reduced and fuel economy is

also better, the Fortuner is now

rated with a 7.6-litre per 100km

combined cycle average, down

from 8.6l/100km.

During my testing time the

dash display readout was constantly

listing around 9/100km,

dropping to 8l/100km on a rural

run with 7l/100km showing

instantaneously at 100km, the

engine ticking over very slowly

at 1600rpm.

ROBUST:

The

Toyota

Fortuner

sits high

off the

ground

for crosscountry

travel.

TOYOTA FORTUNER: Four-wheel-drive to take seven occupants off-the-beaten-track.

If I’m not being deceived, the

Fortuner’s power plant seems

a lot quieter and more refined

than ever before, it purrs along

with a gentle throb you can only

hear if you listen intently. It is

quiet inside the cabin and even

under load the driveline sounds

unflustered.

In terms of performance the

Fortuner will easily keep pace

with today’s busy traffic, it’s

strong off the line with a 9sec

run to 100km/h, and if you are

on the highway it will complete a

highway overtake in 6.8sec (80-

120km/h).

On the subject of figures, the

Fortuner uses its ladder chassis

to much benefit. It has a 3100kg

braked trailer tow rating that has

just been lifted from 2800kg.

That’s why its design is so useful,

the Fortuner is a tough goanywhere

vehicle that will take

you, your family and belongings

to places a traditional SUV

would struggle. There is huge

ground clearance (279mm), and

with chunky tyres grip in the

loose is well maintained.

I took the evaluation vehicle

through the tracks that lead

across the Hororata River; it

wasn’t a challenge, but the river

was flowing freely after a high

country drenching. The base of

the river is very stony and quite

uneven, but the Fortuner soaked

up the rough stuff without battering

the occupants.

That’s no easy feat to get right,

• Price – Toyota Fortuner

Limited, $61,290

• Dimensions – Length,

4795mm; width, 1855mm;

height, 1835mm

• Configuration – Fourcylinder,

four-wheel-drive,

2755cc, 150kW, 500Nm,

six-speed automatic

• Performance – 0-100km/h,

9sec

• Fuel usage – 7.6l/100km

by sheer nature of its load-bearing

live rear axle the Fortuner

has a relatively comfortable ride,

there’s a bit of a jiggle over uneven

tar seal surfaces, but it’s on a

par with the other models I mentioned

in my introduction and a

by-product of what Hilux hands

down. One point of difference,

though, is that the Fortuner gets

coil springs at the rear, the Hilux

still has a leaf spring set-up. The

coils do provide more compliance

for comfort.

Given its height, accessing the

Fortuner requires a bit of a step

up, and you do need to bend

a bit to get into the rear row

of seats. Nevertheless, there’s a

generous amount of room back

there, although if long journeys

are on the cards, place the

youngest or smallest back there.

Once seated, the occupants

are well cocooned and sheltered

from the rugged mechanicals

underneath, ride comfort is

high, and on my long inland

evaluation there was never a

point where I felt taxed or tired.

For 2021 the Fortuner adds

a larger display panel (8in),

Apple CarPlay and Android

Auto. Those items on top of

what would ordinarily be

deemed a generous amount of

fitment. Well, it needs to be well

equipped, the Fortuner comes

in at $57,790 for the GXL, the

evaluation car was a Limited

model that adds $3500. That

makes quite a big outlay, but it

does sit well with the prices of its

competition.

All that aside, you are buying

into the quintessential SUV, one

that will last forever and go anywhere.

At 4.8m that does mean

you have to be picky finding

a central city car park, but the

benefits come when you make a

weekend excursion to the high

country lakes.

If that’s not what you need,

then Toyota’s Highlander could

be the alternative, it doesn’t get

the high-tech four-wheel-drive

system but it does have even

more finesse and seven-seat

capability, its underpinnings are

state-of-the-art and occupant

comfort is high-level.

For those whose questions

revolve around what is best in

this market, do your homework

and work out what is best for

all situations. If you do chose

a Fortuner, its versatility won’t

leave you disappointed.
