Bentley<br />

• By Nikki Preston<br />

A THREE-BEDROOM luxury<br />

home in Akaroa has sold for<br />

$2.5 million – more than<br />

$600,000 above its RV.<br />

The fact the house came with<br />

a free Bentley could have helped<br />

with the price.<br />

The lifestyle property, which<br />

sits on 1.52ha off Purple Peak<br />

Rd, had been on the market<br />

for several years, but the most<br />

recent listing made it clear the<br />

owner wanted it sold. <strong>Bay</strong>leys<br />

listing agents Bianca Davidson<br />

and Chris Mangels asked<br />

buyers to ignore previous price<br />

indications, saying: “This<br />

resort-style property is required<br />

to be sold on or before auction<br />

day.”<br />

The vendor was also willing<br />

to throw in flat screen TVs,<br />

imported furniture, quality<br />

appliances and a variety of<br />

artworks, as well as the 20<strong>05</strong><br />

Bentley Continental GT V12, to<br />

sweeten the deal.<br />

Deer carcass finally removed from roadside<br />

• By Tony Simons<br />

A DECAYING headless<br />

deer lying near the<br />

roadside outside a Lyttelton<br />

house was finally removed<br />

– five days after neighbours<br />

first complained to the city<br />

council.<br />

The carcass was noticed<br />

by a walker, Vanessa<br />

Jacobs, who was heading<br />

up College Rd towards<br />

the Urumau Track on the<br />

Port Hills early last week.<br />

The deer’s head had been<br />

mounted on a nearby fence<br />

post.<br />

“Someone had shot it,”<br />

Jacobs said.<br />

“It smelled disgusting,<br />

was attracting flies and<br />

(was) horrific to look at.<br />

I phoned the council, but<br />

they seemed reluctant to<br />

do anything.”<br />

It was still there five days<br />

later, she said.<br />

A neighbour said two<br />

deer had been shot, one of<br />

them butchered and then<br />

dumped beside the road<br />

news<br />

after its head was taken off.<br />

“I called the police to<br />

complain because the<br />

council told me to, but the<br />

police told me it was the<br />

council’s problem,” the<br />

neighbour said.<br />

Others in the area told<br />

<strong>Bay</strong> <strong>Harbour</strong> News they<br />

were reluctant to confront<br />

the person they believed<br />

responsible, so they<br />

phoned the city council,<br />

the police and the man’s<br />

landlord to complain.<br />

“The council sent<br />

someone out the day we<br />

first saw it, but they left<br />

again,” said a resident.<br />

“Children in the area<br />

were really upset that it<br />

was allowed to lie there for<br />

so long.”<br />

A city council<br />

spokesperson said a person<br />

at the property would not<br />

allow its contractors to<br />

take it away.<br />

The the carcass was put<br />

on a truck last Tuesday<br />

night then driven away, a<br />

resident said.<br />

Deteriorating jetty to be rebuilt<br />

DRUMMONDS Jetty in Akaroa<br />

will be rebuilt as part of the<br />

city council’s marine structures<br />

renewal programme.<br />

The 33m jetty is situated off<br />

Beach Rd, near the main Akaroa<br />

Wharf.<br />

Damaged decking and debris<br />

were removed late last year to<br />

make the deteriorating structure<br />

safe.<br />

City council head of parks<br />

Andrew Rutledge said<br />

Drummonds Jetty will be rebuilt<br />

in the same<br />

location and<br />

remain the same<br />

length, but will<br />

include a few<br />

updates.<br />

“To make the<br />

increase from 2.4m to 3m. It will<br />

also be one level, rather than<br />

stepped like it is currently,” said<br />

Rutledge.<br />

“The new Drummonds Jetty<br />

will sit level with the height of<br />

the adjacent shoreline, effectively<br />

raising the level of the whole<br />

structure.”<br />

Work is expected to get under<br />

way next year and will be<br />

completed ahead of the Akaroa<br />

Wharf replacement project.<br />

The renewed jetty will be temporarily<br />

used by commercial and<br />

recreational marine operators<br />

while the main Akaroa Wharf is<br />

replaced.<br />

Two temporary floating<br />

pontoons will be installed at the<br />

end of the jetty, connected via a<br />

gangway.<br />

“After consulting with the<br />

community we determined that<br />

installing temporary pontoons<br />

will ensure there’s enough space<br />

on Drummonds Jetty to accommodate<br />

users while Akaroa<br />

Wharf is being upgraded, and<br />

allow larger vessels to dock in<br />

deeper waters,” Rutledge said.<br />

The next phase of the project<br />

includes developing a design<br />

for the new Drummonds Jetty<br />

and working with commercial<br />

and recreational users, as well as<br />

Beach Rd businesses that operate<br />

near the jetty, to outline a plan<br />

for how the jetty will be used<br />

while the wharf replacement<br />

work is under way.<br />

Second Chances<br />

Facing my demons and finding a better me<br />

by hayley holt<br />

A raw and honest story of alcoholism, recovery, and courage in the face of loss Hayley Holt<br />

grew up in the public eye. Raised a dancer in bedazzled dresses and fake tan. Underneath<br />

she was an introvert, socially awkward and unsure of who she wanted to be. She discovered<br />

the freedom of professional snowboarding, and found a better self at the bottom of a bottle:<br />

confident, easygoing, the life of the party. As her high-profile media career grew, she spent<br />

nights drinking, getting kicked out of clubs, and blacking out and the scare that led her to AA,<br />

her journey to sobriety, and a late-in-life ADHD diagnosis that brought everything into focus.<br />

Then, single, age forty, and at the peak of her career, Hayley embarked on a widely reported<br />

‘miracle’ pregnancy that was cut short by a devastating miscarriage. In the darkest place of<br />

her life, she found hope in a blossoming new love, the support of her family and the strength<br />

in herself to carry on. Heartbreaking and life-affirming, filled with Hayley’s wicked wit and<br />

charm, Second Chances is about hiding your true self, finding the courage to confront your<br />

mistakes, and learning that even the deepest pain can be followed by the greatest joy.<br />

A Small Town in Ukraine<br />

The place we came from, the place we went back to<br />

by Bernard Wasserstein<br />

The revelatory history of Krakowiec - ‘a little place you’ve never heard of ‘ - through<br />

which we see life in Eastern Europe as never before. Decades ago, the historian Bernard<br />

Wasserstein set out to uncover the hidden past of the town forty miles west of Lviv<br />

where his family originated- Krakowiec (Krah-KOV-yets). Wasserstein traces the arc of<br />

history across centuries of religious and political conflict, as armies of Cossacks, Turks,<br />

Swedes, and Muscovites rampaged through the region. In the age of enlightenment,<br />

the Polish magnate Ignacy Cetner built his palace at Krakowiec and, with his vivacious<br />

daughter, Princess Anna, created an arcadia of refinement and serenity. Krakowiec<br />

developed into a typical shtetl, with a jostling population of Poles, Ukrainians, and<br />

Jews. In 1914, disaster struck. ‘Seven years of terror and carnage’ left a legacy of<br />

ferocious national antagonisms. After the war the Poles were expelled and the town<br />

dwindled into a border outpost. Today, the storm of history once again flows through<br />

Krakowiec as hordes of refugees flee for their lives from Ukraine to Poland.<br />

Go as a River<br />

by Shelley read<br />

A soaring, heartstopping coming-of-age novel of female resilience and becoming, for<br />

fans of WHERE THE CRAWDADS SING<br />

I’ve come to understand how the exceptional lurks beneath the ordinary like the deep<br />

and mysterious world beneath the sea On a cool autumn morning, Torie Nash heads<br />

into her village pulling a rickety wagon filled with late-season peaches. As she nears<br />

an intersection, a mysterious drifter with grimy thumbs and smudged cheeks and<br />

eyes as dark as a raven’s wing stops to ask her the way. She could turn left or cross<br />

over. But she does not. Her heart skips a beat as he whispers, ‘Go as a river.’ So<br />

begins a mezmerising story that unfolds over a tumultuous lifetime as Torie begins<br />

to absorb and follow his words. Soon, she will gather all the pieces of her small and<br />

extraordinary life, spin through the eddies of desire, heartbreak and betrayal, and arrive<br />

at a single rocky decision that will change her life for ever.<br />

Practical, innovative ways to buy your own home today<br />

by Susan edmunds<br />

Do the chances of buying your first home seem akin to winning the lottery? Well,<br />

don’t despair because respected property and business journalist Susan Edmunds<br />

has done the hard work to reveal how to get you into your first home - sooner rather<br />

than later. This book is packed full of up-to-date advice, including: Making the most<br />

of KiwiSaver to help you save enough for a deposit; how to get a loan with the lowest<br />

deposit possible. How to apply for a loan - what banks look for; how to navigate<br />

loan-to-value restrictions. How to structure your loan. Buying off the plans - risks and<br />

rewards. Is it better to buy small and plan to move in a few years or stretch yourself<br />

as far as you can go to get into somewhere you could stay longer? What are the tax<br />

implications of buying with the intention to Airbnb part of the house? Making an offer/<br />

going to auction - how to make a winning bid and find properties that won’t be in<br />

The Queen’s Wife<br />

A memoir of a turbulent time and a chess game that<br />

broke all the rules by Joanne drayton<br />

A modern love story: whakapapa, archaeology, art and heartbreak. A memoir of<br />

a turbulent time and a chess game that broke all the rules. In 1989, two married<br />

women met by chance. They instantly hit it off, but little did they know that their<br />

new relationship would turn their lives upside-down. This is the true story of that<br />

relationship, which threatened to cost them their children, families and friends and<br />

forced them to reassess their sexuality, identity and heritage. Along the way, one #<br />

an acclaimed biographer # was to explore the power of objects, while the other # a<br />

painter # was to follow her whakapapa back to the first Maori king, Te Wherowhero.<br />

Against the odds, the couple#s new life together became rich in laughter, travel,<br />

unusual encounters, investigations into Viking raids, the Kingitanga movement, the<br />

death of a New Zealand artist, chicken claws, ghosts, eccentrics and much more. A<br />

fascinating read on so many levels, this is an important view of our country from its<br />

very edge.<br />

Lost seal rocks out under<br />

the sun on Lake Forsyth<br />

• By Heidi Slade<br />

A CURIOUS seal has made<br />

its way to a rock on Te Roto o<br />

Wairewa/Lake Forsyth – 6km<br />

from its ocean home.<br />

Lincoln University senior<br />

lecturer Rob Radics spotted<br />

the large seal in the freshwater<br />

lake while he was<br />

kayaking.<br />

“I’ve never seen<br />

a seal on that lake<br />

before,” he said.<br />

“I am not an<br />

expert, however,<br />

Rob<br />

Radics<br />

this is a common<br />

seal in New<br />

Zealand and she is<br />

a female by her size.<br />

“I suspect the seal escaped the<br />

storm, high winds and sea last<br />

week to the lake.<br />

“Now she is either stuck or<br />

likes the place. Unfortunately,<br />

the first one is more likely,” he<br />

said.<br />

Radics said the seal would<br />

have to climb over a 10m-high<br />

loose gravel hill to return to the<br />

sea.<br />

“That seal should not be<br />

there. (The lake) is freshwater<br />

and has a high level of toxic<br />

algae,” he said. Radics believed<br />

the freshwater may have a<br />

detrimental effect on the seal’s<br />

health.<br />

“If she cannot relocate to<br />

the sea, she potentially will be<br />

poisoned by the toxic algae or<br />

have issues due to the freshwater<br />

living.”<br />

Radics was also worried about<br />

what the seal has been eating.<br />

He called the Department of<br />

Conservation’s emergency line<br />

when he came across the seal.<br />

DOC Mahaanui supervisor<br />

biodiversity Craig Alexander<br />

said it is unusual for a seal to<br />

be in the lake but he was not<br />

concerned about its welfare.<br />

“We don’t think it’s stuck and<br />

expect it will find its way back<br />

to sea when it’s ready. So we’re<br />

not planning to intervene here,”<br />

Alexander said.<br />

“Seals can be curious and<br />

exploratory by nature and, from<br />

time to time, they can pop up in<br />

unexpected places.”<br />

He had never seen a seal on<br />

the lake before and DOC has<br />

not received any reports of them<br />

being spotted there before.<br />

Alexander said anyone<br />

who sees a seal should stay at<br />

least 20m away and exercise<br />

caution near the animal. If<br />

you spot a seal on Lake Forsyth,<br />

phone 0800 362 468 to report it<br />

to DOC.<br />

THE LYTTELTON Port<br />

Company is once again a<br />

four-crane operation.<br />

A new Liebherr crane, manufactured<br />

in Ireland, made its way<br />

to Lyttelton last month.<br />

“A fourth crane will bring us<br />

back to a four-crane operation.<br />

Having a four-crane fleet is key<br />

to providing flexibility for our<br />

operation and maintenance<br />

schedule, ensuring we can<br />

provide efficient services to<br />

our many customers,” a LPC<br />

spokesperson said.<br />

The three-month crane<br />

assembly process would start<br />

immediately, with the intention<br />

the crane would go into service<br />

by the end of June.<br />

Last year, LPC said goodbye<br />

to one of its container cranes, a<br />

central piece of equipment at the<br />

port since 1993.<br />

The new crane would be its<br />

replacement.<br />

The crane includes safety<br />

improvements like spreader<br />

Pumpkin of<br />

a good time<br />

had at festival<br />

• By Geoff Sloan<br />

LITTLE RIVER saw its population<br />

swell from 700 to more than 2000 at the<br />

weekend, as visitors checked out the big<br />

Pumpkin Festival.<br />

The annual event is a fundraiser for<br />

Little River School. Organiser Mel Birch<br />

said it was started in 1996 and has grown<br />

into the second largest pumpkin festival<br />

in New Zealand.<br />

“They had a little competition between<br />

themselves and invited more friends and<br />

then held it down in the public car park<br />

in Little River. It started to get too big for<br />

the carpark, so they moved to the domain.<br />

And we’ve just grown and grown ever<br />

since,” she said.<br />

A number of prizes were up for grabs,<br />

ranging from the smallest and most<br />

perfect pumpkin through to the ugliest.<br />

However, all eyes were on the<br />

coveted ‘Big Boy’ giant pumpkin prize.<br />

Bishopdale’s Mundy family walked away<br />

with the ultimate prize, thanks to their<br />

giant 211kg entry.<br />

Dad Andy Mundy said they had never<br />

entered a pumpkin competition before.<br />

“We thought there’d be bigger ones”.<br />

But the “Mundy Bros”, Harley, 6, and<br />

Andy, 9, had a different view.<br />

Said Harley: “We knew we would win.”<br />

Andy revealed their secret to growing<br />

enormous pumpkins.<br />

“Lots of watering, chicken manure and<br />

they love sunshine,” said Andy.<br />

It’s a formula they will use for next<br />

year’s event.<br />

– Public Interest Journalism funded<br />

through NZ On Air<br />

Biochar is a great tool to condition your<br />

soil.<br />

The History of Biochar<br />

There is strong evidence that Indigenous<br />

cultures around the world have used<br />

Biochar for soil conditioning, waste, and<br />

resource management which in turn<br />

has allowed for them to grow food in<br />

otherwise adverse conditions, such as the<br />

Amazon Rainforest in the case of Terra<br />

Preta.<br />

What is Biochar and how does it work?<br />

Biochar is created using a technique<br />

called retort burning, which encourages<br />

Pyrolysis, a process that reduces<br />

combustion by restricting air flow. Retort<br />

burning is roasting the wood or biomass<br />

in an oxygen-restricted process. This<br />

preserves the stable structure of the<br />

carbonised biomass pore space, which<br />

allows the structure to become adsorbent<br />

and filters soil of toxicity. This structure<br />

also has a larger surface area, which<br />

allows for water-holding capacity. This<br />

process removes volatile compounds.<br />

Because the structure is preserved, this<br />

acts as a nutrient delivery system as well<br />

as a habitat for micro-organisms and<br />

mycelium.<br />

Important: Biochar is different than<br />

Activated Charcoal and Charcoal,<br />

and both of these you do not want to<br />

integrate into your soil as it can be quite<br />

toxic.<br />

Benefits of Biochar<br />

• Long-term soil enhancement, lasts<br />

thousands of years<br />

• Carbon sequestration<br />

• Water retention properties<br />

• Acts as a habitat for microbial activity<br />

Make your own Biochar<br />

There are a few different ways to make<br />

biochar at home. Before you start, make<br />

sure there are no fire bans in your area<br />

so preferably make biochar in the winter<br />

or spring, and it should not be windy.<br />

You can make biochar using a burn pit, a<br />

metal container (such as a roasting pan)<br />

in a wood burning fire or stove, or a top<br />

lit up-draft gasifier cooker.<br />

The best biomass to burn is dry wood,<br />

soft or hard wood, straw and even<br />

animal bones or manure will do the<br />

trick!<br />

1. Create a fire and build up a good base<br />

layer of burnt debris.<br />

2. If using an open fire, keep feeding<br />

wood to the fire, adding larger material<br />

as the coal bed develops.<br />

3. If using a woodburner, place your<br />

wood into a metal container such as a<br />

roasting pan, put the lid on but don’t<br />

Advertisement<br />

Biochar – An arborist’s<br />

perspective on soil enhancement<br />

seal tightly as air will need to escape.<br />

Place into the fire, onto the bed of<br />

freshly burnt ash/coal.<br />

4. Before the wood burns for too long,<br />

douse it with water to prevent it<br />

burning down too small or turning<br />

to ash. The steam from the water will<br />

open the pores in the biochar.<br />

Inoculation<br />

It’s important to inoculate biochar before<br />

distributing it in the soil. Before Biochar<br />

is inoculated, it is a lifeless lump of<br />

sponge-like carbon that takes up water<br />

and nutrients from the soil. During this<br />

time, the plant’s roots are competing with<br />

the biochar, and it can be detrimental<br />

to plant growth. By inoculating the<br />

biochar, the soil microbes begin to<br />

transfer the nutrients from the biochar<br />

into the plants roots where it is then<br />

fully absorbed. There are several options<br />

when it comes to inoculating Biochar:<br />

1. Compost tea/Effective<br />

Microorganisms (EM)/compost<br />

2. Worm castings<br />

3. Leaf moulds from native forests<br />

4. Oyster mushrooms<br />

5. Fish and seaweed brews<br />

How to inoculate the biochar<br />

1. Sprinkle in between layers of your<br />

compost pile, leave for 3-12 months<br />

before adding to the soil<br />

2. Mix biochar and compost together<br />

into a slurry with some water, leave for<br />

3 days<br />

3. Soak biochar in a bucket with liquid<br />

feed, comfrey tea, seaweed etc, leave<br />

for 24 hours<br />

Once inoculated, you can distribute the<br />

biochar by digging it into soil, spotfeeding<br />

plants, applying to garden beds,<br />

vertical mulching and through tree pit<br />

construction. Experiment with different<br />

amounts and depths in your soil.<br />

FIREARMS LICENCE HOLDERS<br />

THINGS YOU NEED<br />

TO KNOW BEFORE<br />

‘THE ROAR’AND<br />

GAME BIRD SEASON<br />

Information from Te Tari Pūreke - Firearms Safety Authority<br />

If you’re a firearms licence holder, you’ll need<br />

to know about changes to the storage and<br />

transport rules for firearms and ammunition,<br />

and changes to the seven rules of firearms<br />

safety.<br />

Regulations were updated in February 2022,<br />

and to help Kiwis make sense of those<br />

changes, Te Tari Pūreke, the new firearms<br />

regulator, published a Secure Storage and<br />

Transport Guide.<br />

You can download a copy of the Secure<br />

Storage and Transport Guide from www.<br />

firearmssafetyauthority.govt.nz/firearms-safety<br />

Storage and transport for firearms and ammunition, key points<br />

Transportation<br />

If you’re driving to a hunting location, your<br />

firearm needs to be inoperable during your<br />

travel and, ideally, concealed from view. This<br />

means removing the bolt or an essential part<br />

(or if that’s not possible, applying a trigger or<br />

cable lock), or transporting the firearm in a<br />

locked carry case.<br />

The ammunition needs to be separately and<br />

securely stored in a locked glove box or similar<br />

storage area, if practical.<br />

And please, whatever you do, once you’ve<br />

finished using your firearm, lock it away. Never<br />

leave any firearms in your ute, shed, home or<br />

vehicle unsecured at any time.<br />

The only exceptions to the firearms and<br />

ammunition transport rules are if you’re<br />

using the firearm on a farm for farm-related<br />

activities, or you’re doing legally-authorised<br />

hunting or pest control (such as a regional<br />

council employed pest controller) and the<br />

licence holder is in the<br />

vehicle or the immediately<br />

vicinity of the vehicle with<br />

the firearms in it.<br />

Make sure you read or<br />

download a free copy<br />

of the storage and<br />

transport guide to keep<br />

up to date with the<br />

details of the changes:<br />

www.firearmssafetyauthority.<br />

govt.nz/firearms-safety/storagetransportation<br />

Ammunition<br />

All ammunition must now be stored in<br />

a locked container. You can now only<br />

store ammunition with firearms in a<br />

gun safe that has a separate lockable<br />

compartment with a different key than<br />

the key for the gun safe. You must<br />

keep these keys separate.<br />

If your safe doesn’t have a separate lockable<br />

compartment, you need to store ammunition<br />

in its own secure storage container with a key,<br />

combination, or padlock, or in a stout locked<br />

cupboard.<br />

Taking a break when you’re travelling<br />

with firearms<br />

For those who travel with firearms to hunt<br />

locations, your inoperable and secured firearm<br />

can be left in your vehicle unattended, for<br />

example during a break in a journey, for up to<br />

60 minutes. But you need to lock your vehicle<br />

and stay within the immediate area or vicinity<br />

of the vehicle and meet other conditions.<br />

Read the storage and transport guide for full<br />

details: www.firearmssafetyauthority.govt.nz/<br />

ammunition or other arms items be left<br />

in a vehicle overnight.<br />

Firearms Registry<br />

We want to enable the legitimate use of firearms<br />

for feeding our whānau, conservation, farming<br />

and recreation while keeping our communities<br />

safe. This involves making sure firearms licence<br />

holders are fit and proper to possess firearms<br />

and are meeting the obligations of their licence.<br />

New Zealand will have a firearms registry from<br />

24 June <strong>2023</strong>. The Registry is one of the ways we<br />

are strengthening how firearms are managed in<br />

New Zealand.

TREASURES FROM THE PAST 11<br />

Navy volunteers sign up<br />

THE BRITISH Royal Naval<br />

Volunteer Reserve was instituted<br />

in 1903 and manned largely by<br />

members of the Royal Naval<br />

Artillery Volunteers as part of<br />

a modernisation of the British<br />

Commonwealth’s defence forces.<br />

While His Majesty Edward<br />

VII’s Colony of New Zealand<br />

had always relied on the Royal<br />

Navy’s Australasia Station and<br />

its largely British-born sailors<br />

for its primary naval defence,<br />

the Lyttelton Naval Artillery<br />

Volunteers were formed in 1880<br />

as part of a nationwide coast<br />

guard militia manning the gun<br />

emplacements protecting the<br />

Port of Lyttelton from the British<br />

Empire’s adversaries.<br />

With Edward VII’s<br />

modernisation efforts, the<br />

Lyttelton Naval Artillery<br />

Volunteers became the No 1<br />

Company Canterbury Division<br />

of the New Zealand Garrison<br />

Artillery Volunteers.<br />

On the disbanding of the<br />

British Royal Navy’s Australasia<br />

Station in 1913, the New Zealand<br />

Naval Forces were created as<br />

a Division of the Royal Navy<br />

under the command of its China<br />

Station.<br />

After World War 1, the New<br />

Zealand Division of the British<br />

Royal Navy was formed in 1921,<br />

funded by the New Zealand government<br />

and increasingly crewed<br />

by New Zealand sailors.<br />

Five years later in 1926, the<br />

Royal Naval Volunteer Reserves<br />

were formed across New Zealand<br />

in support of the New Zealand<br />

Division. The Canterbury Division<br />

of the RNVR was composed<br />

of civilians from diverse backgrounds<br />

who shared a love of the<br />

sea and willingness to serve the<br />

British Empire’s naval forces in<br />

times of war.<br />

Members included bank clerks,<br />

office workers, manual labourers<br />

and tradespeople, representing<br />

a broad cross-section of New<br />

Zealand society.<br />

The RNVR’s commitment to<br />

the Crown and readiness to under<br />

take naval operations at short<br />

notice made them an essential<br />

component of New Zealand’s<br />

Royal Navy defence force.<br />

In 1926, with the founding of<br />

local RNVR divisions, the New<br />

Zealand government purchased<br />

Her Majesty’s Naval Trawler TR1<br />

from the British Admiralty.<br />

Built in 1917 in Canada, this<br />

naval trawler had been on loan to<br />

the Royal Canadian Navy for use<br />

in WW1 minesweeping and anti-submarine<br />

operations. A 540<br />

ton, 41m-long steam ship with a<br />

crew of 26, she was armed with<br />

one four-inch (102mm) gun and<br />

two Lewis machine guns along<br />

with depth charges.<br />

Renamed HMNZS Wakakura<br />

(literally ‘boat school’ in te reo<br />

Māori) she served as the nation’s<br />

main steamer training vessel for<br />

the RNVR and was a regular<br />

visitor to Whakaraupō Lyttelton<br />

<strong>Harbour</strong>.<br />

Throughout the 1930s,<br />

when in port, she provided the<br />

Canterbury Division RNVR<br />

sailors with naval experience<br />

in seamanship, gunnery and<br />

minesweeping. On the advent<br />

of WW2, after the sinking of<br />

RMS Niagara by German mines,<br />

the New Zealand government<br />

embarked on the construction<br />

of the Castle Class minesweepers<br />

based on the design of the<br />

Wakakura, which also joined the<br />

28th Minesweeper Flotilla.<br />

The cutter Deveron was a<br />

permanent Lyttelton-based<br />

training complement to the<br />

HMNZS Wakakura. At 26<br />

ton, 16m in length, and of<br />

kauri construction, she was built<br />

around 1877 in Auckland where<br />

it traded from, before being<br />

sold to a Lyttelton fisherman in<br />

1886. She took part in the cargo<br />

salvage of the iron barque May<br />

Queen, wrecked at Camp <strong>Bay</strong> in<br />

early 1888, and traded timber in<br />

Southland and Stewart Island<br />

through the 1890s.<br />

From the early 1900s, she<br />

was popularly known as the<br />

‘Peninsula cutter’ trading goods<br />

around the bays from Lyttelton<br />

to Akaroa for some 20 years under<br />

Captain Christian Andersen<br />

and his son.<br />

Bought at auction for the sum<br />

of £25 on July 26, 1929, she was<br />

outfitted with an auxiliary engine<br />

and commissioned on December<br />

16, 1929, by Royal Navy<br />

Commodore of the New Zealand<br />

Division, Geoffrey Blake, as the<br />

sail training vessel of the Canterbury<br />

Division RNVR based at<br />

Rīpapa Island.<br />

The Deveron proved popular<br />

with the reservists who eagerly<br />

took her to sea almost every<br />

weekend through the early to<br />

mid 1930s. Canterbury Division<br />

RNVR crews also sailed her in<br />

yachting races, such as the Banks<br />

Peninsula Cruising Club’s annual<br />

ocean race from the harbour<br />

heads out to Brighton pier and<br />

back.<br />

With longer training trips<br />

around the peninsula to Akaroa<br />

and south to Dunedin via Timaru<br />

– at times braving fierce gales<br />

– or north to the port of Kaiapoi,<br />

the young hands gained vital<br />

sailing experience that would<br />

serve them well when called up<br />

for WW2. By late 1936, however,<br />

the venerable Deveron was starting<br />

to show her near 60 years of<br />

age, with one wag suggesting:<br />

“It is time that she was treated to<br />

about 10 gallons of petrol and a<br />

match”.<br />

Sold for £10 in December 1936,<br />

she was finally scrapped in early<br />

1940.<br />

With the establishment of<br />

the Royal New Zealand Navy<br />

in 1941, the Dominion’s long<br />

association with the British<br />

Royal Navy finally ended, and<br />

the RNVR became today’s Royal<br />

New Zealand Naval Volunteer<br />

Reserve (RNZNVR).<br />

Changing weather patterns<br />

will increase flood risks<br />

Winters in parts of Waitaha/Canterbury may have up<br />

to 40 per cent more rain, while traditionally dry inland<br />

areas are expected to become drier.<br />

Surfers from Brazil, Japan take titles<br />

• By Heidi Slade<br />

LONGBOARDERS from Brazil<br />

and Japan took home the crowns<br />

in the men’s and women’s Single<br />

Fin Mingle championships at<br />

Sumner.<br />

Brazilian surfer Augusto Olinto<br />

won the men’s championship,<br />

while Japan’s Natsumi Taoka took<br />

out the women’s.<br />

Said Single Fin Mingle founder<br />

and director Ambrose McNeill:<br />

“The sheer showmanship of<br />

[Olinto’s] surfing really came<br />

through.”<br />

Olinto came to Sumner after<br />

finishing ninth at the GWM<br />

Sydney Surf Pro WLT.<br />

Olinto beat United States<br />

longboarder Saxon Wilson, Mt<br />

Manganui’s Jordan Griffin and<br />

Hugh Ritchie from New Brighton<br />

in the final.<br />

Ritchie, who finished second<br />

in the 2021 event, surfs with the<br />

North Wai Boardriders Club<br />

and is part owner of Exit Surf in<br />

Ferrymead.<br />

Sumner surfer and last year’s<br />

men’s champion Luke O’Neill was<br />

seventh.<br />

In the women’s final, Taoka was<br />

up against defending champion<br />

Hawaiian Mason Shremmer.<br />

Shremmer was ranked fifth<br />

in the world for women’s<br />

longboarding last year. But Taoka,<br />

who finished fifth in the GWM<br />

Sydney Surf Pro WLT, was in top<br />

form.<br />

McNeill said it was great to see<br />

Taoka’s skills on display.<br />

“It was amazing. Watching<br />

her form in the contest. She is so<br />

skilled.”<br />

McNeill said it was exciting<br />

to see New Zealand surfers like<br />

Gabrielle Paul from Raglan in the<br />

finals.<br />

“It was incredible that in<br />

both the men’s and women’s<br />

finals there was New Zealand<br />

representation.”<br />

The eclectic celebration of<br />

longboarding with nightlife, art,<br />

music and food “lived up to the<br />

hype,” McNeill said.<br />

“I’m stoked. One of the key<br />

aspects of the mingle is to<br />

raise the bar for New Zealand<br />

longboarding.<br />

“It’s really exciting to be able to<br />

provide that platform.”<br />

The rain on Sunday morning<br />

couldn’t dull the buzz.<br />

“In those rainier heats in the<br />

morning, the spirit was definitely<br />

there,” McNeill said.<br />

He is now planning the 10th<br />

mingle next year.<br />

“It’s going to be really<br />

significant for us. It’s going to be<br />

a massive year.”<br />
