Photo: PATRICK ARGOURD By JEROME GAVELLE The Coastguard arrived just in time to tow a couple to safety when their boat was heading on to rocks in Putiki Bay. After last week s storm and king tide floods, a small yacht was trying to make its way out of Anzac Bay in high winds on Monday, January 27.Waiheke Coastguard crew member Guy Brown says the sailboat s small engine could not compete with the strong winds and the yacht was making no progress out of the bay. The skipper, who had received the help of another yachtie, was finally obliged to anchor his boat in Putiki Bay but it was very close to the rocks. The crew was relieved to see the Coast- guard boat come to the rescue, Mr Brown says. We towed the yacht to the wharf at Kennedy Point, Mr Brown says: Coastguard also assisted another boat at Matiatia during last week s storm. The skipper of a yacht could not manage to grab a mooring by himself because of the strong winds, so one of the six volunteer coastguard crew members jumped on his boat and helped the yachtie out. Surprises at 80th birthday Surprise birthday celebration: John Murie with his two sisters Robin and Joy. By GILL ALCOCK A surprise 80th birthday celebration at Morra Hall on Saturday reunited three siblings and brought together friends and family with a long and significant association with Wai- heke. John Murie began his birthday cele- brations on his beloved Waiheke with a surprise reunion with his two sisters from the United States, Joy and Robin, at the Morra Hall. Their father Tom Murie famously built the hall in his spare time from working at the timber yard located at what is now Vino Vino. The three Muries grew up on the island, attending Blackpool School, and were long- time friends with other well-known Waiheke names such as Doreen Burns and Bruce Croll, whose great-grand- mother was the first European baby to be born on the island. Mr Croll attended the reunion along with Mrs Burns and many of Mr Murie s extended family including his son Gary, daughter Barbara, grandchildren and great-grand- children. Little comb wins big Rapt: Small Sculpture prizewinner Lonnie Hutchinson with Comb. Selector and judge: Dr Peter Shand of the Elam School of Fine Arts with the winning work. By GEORGE GARDNER Artist Lonnie Hutchin- son missed her big moment by minutes when she was announced as the winner of the 2011 Small Sculpture Prize. The Mt Albert artist had been enjoying a quick dip in the sea at Surfdale and couldn t get a taxi in time to get her up to the Waiheke Community Art Gallery for the 6pm exhibition opening and awards on Friday. Ms Hutchinson says she couldn t believe it when she arrived with her friends and was told she had won $3000 for her piece titled Comb -- a steel and paint work inspired by her mixed Maori, Polynesian and Pakeha heritage. I m blown away. I don t usually enter things. I usually do pub- lic and private com- missions. Selector and judge Dr Peter Shand of the Elam School of Fine Arts says selecting the works for the exhibition involved decisions about whether the works offer a stimu- lus, something to res- pond to while not fully disclosing themselves to the viewer. He says the value of this award -- a national award for free-standing or wall sculpture up to 800mm in any dimension -- is its focus on intimate scale sculpture. It is a balance to the headland -- Sculpture on the Gulf exhibition. He chose Ms Hutchin- son s work from a wide range of works in differ- ent media for its elegance, particularly in some of the design features . It also inhabits its scale well. It s a modest work that elevates its scale but is not over- whelming. And it s extremely humorous, Dr Shand says. Ms Hutchinson was presented with her prize and a bouquet of flowers by gallery chairwoman Susan McCarthy. The exhibition is run- ning alongside the head- land -- Sculpture on the Gulf 2011 and a maquette exhibition of small-scale headland works in the gallery. Waiheke Community Art Gallery is open 7 days a week between 10am and 4pm at 2 Korora Rd, Oneroa.
