Waiheke Fruit and Veg had to close early after a leak in the roof caused puddles on the shop floor. Staff called out the Waiheke Voluntary Fire Brigade to help. Fire chief Ron Leonard says the fire crews also came to the rescue at an address in Blackpool where shovels were needed, and at Little Oneroa where rushing water carrying debris blocked culverts at the bottom of Goodwin Ave. With nowhere for it to go, the sudden rush of water caused extensive flooding to the low-lying area and caused flooding at Little O' Store. Sailing by the stars to Hawaii By JEROME GAVELLE Epic journey: Jenny Mauger is on Te Matau a Maui, one of seven traditional vaka or canoes that make up the Pacific Voyagers fleet. Five vaka were due to set sail from the Auckland Viaduct yesterday on their way to Hawaii. Animation student Hine- katorangi Mauger is glad her mum is part of a historic trip across the Pacific. The 16-year-old Waiheke resident waved off her intrepid parent Jenny Mauger on a once-in-a-lifetime adventure to Hawaii aboard the 22-metre New Zealand vaka Te Matau a Maui. It is one of seven traditional vaka -- canoes -- powered only by the wind and sun to embark on the epic voyage sailing 15,000 nautical miles across the Pacific Ocean. The Pacific Voyagers fleet is made up of a network of Poly- nesian voyaging societies and vaka that are sailing from their home countries to Hawaii via French Polynesia over the next month. The five Aotearoa-based vaka were due to leave the Viaduct Basin yesterday and will rendezvous in French Polynesia's Tuamotu Islands with the rest of the fleet from the Cook Islands and Tahiti. The voyage aims to raise awareness of environmental issues affecting the oceans as well as re-establishing cul- tural links by using tra- ditional skills like navigating by the stars. In Hawaii crew will attend an ocean climate change con- ference before continuing on to San Francisco to teach young people about the voyage and the environment. Ms Mauger, who lives in Hawkes Bay, is excited about doing the first three-month leg on Te Matau a Maui. My daughter is in very good hands with Erica Week on Waiheke where she has been staying since the start of the school year so my heart is at rest and I can embark on this voyage with a free mind. It is an inspirational voy- age for me,'' she says. Ms Mauger will be nursing on the boat. As an experienced sailor, she will also be taking part in the sailing duties and manoeuvres. All crew members have com- pleted coastguard day-skipper, boatmasters and first aid courses. I am not too worried,'' Hinekatorangi says. I am sure mum can handle the trip pretty well.'' German-based company Okeanos and Kiwi company Oceanic Nature Film Pro- ductions will produce a docu- mentary on the voyage. Follow the vaka on Twitter and Facebook and at www. pacificvoyagers.org which is running daily blogs from crews. Go to www.waiheke marketplace.co.nz to view the vaka being built. Allergy talk Latest research into asthma and allergies will be discussed during a free public lecture at Auckland University Business School, Owen G Glenn Building, Grafton Rd, on May 12 at 7pm. The speaker will be Professor Innes Asher, head of paediatrics at Starship. Call Kathleen Hawthorne on 923-1701 or visit www. medicalresearch.co.nz for more information.
