auckland calling

Cycling to work is always a privilege – even in winter – and especially so when Mother Nature’s feeling creative and conjures up a glorious palette like this. The demands of the day ahead melt away, fading to a distant, inconsequential issue. My route takes me along Auckland’s winding Tamaki Drive, pedalling past its magnificent bays, weaving through the obstacle course that is Quay Street’s current reconstruction, on past the boats moored in the Viaduct and Wynyard Quarter, absorbing the aroma of freshly-ground coffee wafting from the bustling coffee stops. I hope it sounds idyllic – because it is – and as an added bonus the cycling helps to keep my belt at a vaguely consistent size. And when life presents me with yet another seemingly insurmountable hurdle, I just remind myself that…

win win takes superyacht honours

Win Win lived up to her name and emerged as the overall victor of the recent Superyacht Cup at Mallorca’s Palma Bay after three days of close racing. The final St Regis Race was held on what proved to be the clearest day of the 23rd edition of Europe’s longest-running superyacht regatta, the Mallorcan mountains providing a stunning backdrop to the drama being played out on the water. In Class A the 33m Win Win was able to secure her third successive victory, this one by the narrow margin of just 33 seconds on corrected time ahead of Nilaya. The triumph is a second SYC win for the Javier Jaudenes-designed Baltic Yacht-built boat, which also topped the table in 2016. Said delighted skipper Ryan Taylor: “We are very happy – we worked for…

experts discuss ocean potential

Leading scientific minds meet in Nelson this August to discuss the shift taking place in aquaculture – from sheltered waterways to open ocean farming. New Zealand’s Cawthron Institute is hosting its inaugural Open Oceans aquaculture symposium, Unlocking the Potential of our Oceans. It will discuss the ways open ocean aquaculture developments in both shellfish and finfish farming could revolutionise the global aquaculture industry. The country’s aquaculture industry is growing in response to globally increasing demand but is constrained by limited sheltered inshore farm space, says Cawthron Institute CEO Professor Charles Eason. The new frontier is open ocean aquaculture, where large tracts of consented space are available but the farming process is challenging in exposed and dynamic waters. New engineering concepts and farming approaches are needed to realise this opportunity and provide confidence for…
