The regatta is New Zealand’s premier centreboard yachting event, held annually at Waiake Beach. The regatta is tra- ditionally held over the first weekend in December, close to the anniversary of Sir Peter’s death. The regatta is in its ninth year and as the largest two day centre- board class sailing regatta in the south- ern hemisphere it attracts competitors from all over New Zea- land and a number of overseas entrants. The event promotes the values and charac- teristics of Sir Peter Blake – enjoyment of sailing, teammateship and care for the environment. While the regatta maintains a youth focus, it caters for all ages and abilities, attracting a good mix of adult sailors. Last year the event drew more than 400 sailors competing in 17 classes. This year with the Laser North Island champs regatta being combined with the Sir Peter Blake Regatta more than 500 sailors are anticipated. The focal point of the regatta is the awarding of the Sir Peter Blake Memorial Trophy – going to the most outstanding sailor at the event. Double success for badminton By PAUL BRADSHAW Badminton North Har- bour capped off a busy and exciting season with success at the Massey University Harbour Sport Excellence Awards on Friday night. This event is the pin- nacle celebration of sporting excellence for North Harbour sports people and organis- ations. Badminton North Har- bour won the Tass Print Event of the Year for hosting the Lion Foun- dation Pan Pacific Series and the Westpac NZ Junior International. This is a wonderful acknowledgement for event manager Lisa Schmidt, staff and the many volunteers who make sure the events are successful and run to the highest standard. The awards evening was a double success for badminton on the North Shore with the Westlake Boys High School prem- ier team winning the Youthtown Junior Sports Team of the Year. The boys premier team had won the NZCT Secondary School Cham- pionships in 2010 which was their seventh title in the past eight years. Badminton was a real winner with the West- lake Girls Premier bad- minton team and the Badminton North Har- bour under-19 team also finalists in the Junior Sports Team of the Year category – they had also won their respective national titles in 2010. All three teams include many players from the BNH Ashaway High Performance Elite and Prince High Per- formance Development squads and we are very proud of their achieve- ments. Dorothy Callister also received the Auckland University of Technology Sport Acknowledgement Award for her contri- bution to badminton. Dorothy is a board member of Badminton North Harbour and com- mittee member of the Takapuna club, a nationally recognised referee and umpire as well as an active member of the Takapuna club. The award recognises Dorothy’s incredible commitment to the sport both regionally and nationally. Badminton North Har- bour also acknowledged their own winners recently at their annual awards evening. This is an opportunity to present trophies to the interclub and closed championship winners as well as recognise individuals who are high achievers or who have made a significant con- tribution throughout the season. The special award winners are: Administrator of the Year: Ross Barnett. Fair Player Award: Freda Pic- kard. Coach of the Year: Oliver Thorpe. Volunteer of the Year: Dorothy Cal- lister. Most Improved Player: Ronny Imron. Masters Player of the Year: Kay Kanaris and Jay Newton. Junior Player of the Year: Ben- edict Lie. Player of the Year: Aviva and Anona Pak. ❚ Paul Bradshaw is chief executive of Badminton North Harbour. Mia ranks her chances In the zone: Mia Middleton, 14, is starting to make moves in her tennis career. Photo: BEN WATSON By FELICITY REID Young tennis player Mia Middleton is becoming the one to beat. Last year the 14-year- old Mairangi Bay Tennis Club member started correspondence school so she could spend more of her day focusing on ten- nis. Now she is starting to see the results. In October, Middleton won the Masters tourna- ment which brings together the top eight 14-year-olds in New Zea- land. To take the title in the event which mimics the professional Masters events, Middleton had to do battle with a familiar foe. In their ninth clash in three years, Middleton met training partner and club mate Rosie Cheng in the final. Middleton had pro- gressed to the final with- out dropping a set and went on to defeat Cheng 6-4 6-3 to secure her status as the top player in her age-group. This year Middleton is also the top junior girl at her club, winner of the senior mixed doubles and runner-up in the ladies singles. She was also runner- up at the July nationals in the under-15s, winner of the Indoor South Island Championships for under-18s and also runner-up in the Taka- puna/Milford Top Dog Tournament for girls under-18. Middleton made her international debut this year and already has more overseas compe- tition to come. She has been selected to rep- resent New Zealand at the Australian nationals and team event and will also head to India in December. The aspiring profes- sional says she enjoys her 16 hour a week train- ing schedule but is look- ing to pick up some tips from the junior Aust- ralian players.
