All three are in front of a Fijian dugout sailing canoe called a camakau which includes an outrigger, added wash-strakes and decking. A plaited pandanus sail drives it through the water at speeds up to 8 or 9 knots. Larger camakau are still used for fishing and inter-island transport. Historic camakau were 30m long and required a crew of 40 men. Double- hulled Fijian ndrua dugouts with similar sail and rigging were the largest vessels ever built in Oceania and could carry more than 200 people.

This year's event will be held at Western Springs on March 9 and 10, 2013. Stall holders from across the greater region are lining up to get involved and the site will be home to a series of vil- lages offering people a glimpse of life in 10 dif- ferent cultures. Suburban Newspa- pers, publisher of the Waiheke Marketplace and a member of the Fairfax Media Mighty A Network, has joined forces with festival org- aniser Auckland Tour- ism Events and Econ- omic Development as the major print sponsor. And its charity arm -- the Mad Butcher and Suburban Newspapers Community Trust will be fundraising throughout the exercise to support the Make-A-Wish Foun- dation. Proceeds will help the foundation realise the dreams of children living in New Zealand and the Pacific Islands who have life threatening con- ditions. Many of these Pacific Island children have strong family links back here in New Zea- land and are as much a part of our community as the locally-based young- sters who also stand to benefit from our efforts,'' Suburban Newspapers general manager and trust chairman David Penny says. We are all Pacific people at the end of the day and united we can make a difference and help bring some hap- piness into the lives of all these children.'' ATEED acting general manager destination Jennah Wootten says one of the festival's objectives is to engage all Aucklanders and Sub- urban Newspapers will help achieve that objec- tive. We are looking for- ward to working with Suburban Newspapers to help grow the Pasifika Festival and we believe it is a great fit for the event,'' she says. The festival started life at Western Springs in 1992 and introduced the village concept in 1998. Today the Pasifika fes- tival sits alongside the Lantern Festival and Diwali Festival of Lights as one of the principal social fixtures in Auck- land's major events port- folio. All three are suppor- ted by Suburban News- papers and the Fairfax Media Mighty A Net- work. Applications for Pasi- fika stall holders are open until October 19.

Contractors have re- moved some clean fill at the O'Brien Rd stockpile site, completed a general cleanup of the site and installed barriers to prevent illegal dumping. New sediment controls and a general manage- ment plan for the site are also in force. Auckland Transport spokeswoman Sharon Hunter says the council- controlled organisation is in discussion with pro- perty owners to secure alternative clean-landfill sites. Auckland Transport is responding to concerns . . . about the location of the site, the fact it is adjacent to a conserva- tion zone and the pos- sibility of sediment run- off into neighbouring wetlands.''
