Photo: TRACY NEAL From sheds, garages and moorings right around New Zealand, vintage boats are heading for their annual weekend of glory at Lake Rotoiti in the Nelson Lakes National Park on March 2 and 3 for the 15th New Zealand Antique and Classic Boatshow. Founder and organiser Pete Rainey said the show had carved a niche in the national boating calendar and in the hearts of boat owners and was continuing to grow in the number and qual- ity of craft presented, as well as the number of people coming to view the boats and the action. It's an opportunity to see the restoration projects, chat to the owners and to have a laugh as boaties try to start their motors for the Seagull dinghy race with its Le Mans start,'' he said. I really want to encourage people to come up and have a look and to just wander up and ask boat-owners for a spin on the lake -- after the organised activities are over most are really happy to show off what their craft can do.'' The programme is for displays on land in the morning, with activities and races on the lake from 1pm both days. Judging will take place on Saturday, ahead of an evening awards cer- emony at the Alpine Lodge. At stake is the Jens Hansen Trophy where the judges are after good looks as well as his- tory, construction and a boat with a story to tell. Other awards include prizes for best new restoration, best steamboat, best jet-propelled craft and best themed display. Races will be held for yachts, row boats, Seagull-motored dinghies, poppers, canoes, child rowers and swimmers. Organisers ask that people leave their classic dogs at home. Lifeline volunteers sought LifeLine Nelson is on the lookout for new volunteer coun- sellors. The training covers basic counselling and listening skills that help encourage positive change for the callers. Cherie McKinstry, who has been a Life- Line telephone counsellor for the past three years, said she gets to talk to some really inter- esting people. Because I cannot see them I cannot pre-judge or determine what they might be like but that also goes for them, they have no idea who I am and they don't judge me so we are total equals and that breaks down a lot of barriers,'' she said. Cherie believes the most important thing to being a tele- phone counsellor is liking peo- ple; it doesn't matter if you are quiet or shy because the main role is listening An information evening is being held on March 11.
