NZ6483/11 Top wins for Takapuna Sailing satisfaction: Sara Winther claimed gold in the Laser Radial at Sail Auckland 2011. Photo: WILL CALVER/OCEAN PHOTOGRAPHY The hosts produced top results in the Sail Auck- land 2011 regatta. Takapuna Boating Club's Tom Ashley and Kate Ellingham picked up gold medals in the RS:X and Sara Winther was triumphant in the radial. Ellingham from the New Zealand sailing team took out the event with a 12-point winning margin from clubmates Justina Sellers who won silver and Jazmine Lynch in third. In the men's RS:X Takapuna's Jon-Paul Tobin was awarded the bronze medal after finishing on equal points with Antonio Cozzolino, but coming off better on countback. In the largest fleet of the regatta Olympic campaigner Winther took victory over New Zealand's best and other international compe- tition in the radial rig Laser including top youth, masters and women sailors. Murrays Bay Boating Club's Mike Bullot went head to head in the Laser with fellow New Zealand Sailing team member Andrew Mur- doch, with only one point separating them going into the medal race, but it was Murdoch who fin- ished top with Bullot set- tling for second. Double Olympic med- allist for Great Britain Nick Rogers sailed with Chris Grube and was simply too good for the Kiwis on the 470 course to win the regatta by a 17-point margin. Competition was tight among the chasing pack with Wakatere Boating Club's Paul Snow- Hansen and Jason Saun- ders holding on for third. There was a tough battle for the 29er top spot with Wakatere's Jack Simpson and Logan Beck picking up their game as the regatta went on and sneaking home on the final day to clinch first place by a point. The regatta has been a huge success,'' says Jez Fanstone, Olympic pro- gramme manager for Yachting New Zealand. Takapuna Boating Club has hosted a great event, with plenty of close racing in all fleets. It's great to have all the Olympic classes sail- ing from the same venue and there have been so many people down to watch the racing and join the action.''

Photo: JOHN SELKIRK By FELICITY REID North Shore Rugby Club is home to the title-winning Suits'' senior seconds side famous for their fondness of wearing old school jackets. But it was a different type of uniform stealing the show in the clubrooms last week. A catwalk was put up in the club in Devonport from which All Black greats Buck Shelford and Frano Botica hail, for the launch of the Rugby World Cup Team 2011 volunteers uniform. The turquoise and purple shirts, hats and jackets de- signed by Sportfolio will be worn by the more than 12,000 volunteers around the country. IRB chairman Bernard Lapasset was visiting for the unveiling of the uniform. For those who have given their time to volunteer for New Zealand 2011 it will be much more, it will be a unique experi- ence of lifetime,'' he says. It is an opportunity to inspire, assist, inform and enrich the the tournament experience for the supporters and the teams. The role of the volunteer is as important as that of the players, referees and event organisers.'' Register to be a volunteer at www.rugbyworldcup.com/ volunteer. Bays rue lost chances CLUB CRICKET East Coast Bays lost a glorious chance to bag first innings points on day one of their sixth- round Hedley Howarth Trophy match against leaders Takapuna. They were bundled out for just 127 in reply to the home side's 148. Things looked grim for Takapuna after Brad Schmulian (4-24) and Rowan Bezuidenhout (3-52) ripped through the heart of their batting line-up. Elliott Herd (40) and Craig Cachopa (38) made contributions but there was little else as the Takapuna batsmen formed a procession back to the sheds. However it wasn't long before the boot was on the other foot as Andrew Cowell (4-22), Jordi Gib- bons (3-17) and James Cowell (3-36) made short work of the Bays line-up to roll them for just 127. After 20 wickets on day one, the chance of an outright victory on day two is likely. At Devonport Domain Cornwall have a vice-like grip on their game with North Shore after day one. A four-wicket bag from Matt Quinn helped the visitors dismiss North Shore for just 183. Oliver Allen (59) and Alex McDuff (42) battled well for the home side but didn't have enough support to give the total some respectability. Cornwall sitting on 106-2 are in a great pos- ition to not only push for first innings points but possibly an outright as well. In the Tom Hellaby Trophy minor champion- ship match between Bir- kenhead City and Waita- kere City the bowlers had it all their own way with 16 wickets falling and few runs being scored. Birkenhead suffered first as they struggled to 148 all out, Scott Davies playing a lone hand for them with 55. Waitakere fared little better when they came to bat as Darrin Crook claimed five of the six wickets to fall to leave the home side on 96-6 and in real danger of fall- ing short of their target. Swimming the distance By EMMA WHITTAKER First it was boxing and now television present- er Steven McIvor is try- ing his hand at long distance ocean swim- ming. The 44-year-old is taking part for the first time in the State New Zealand Ocean Swim Series at Corsair Bay in Christchurch at the end of February. As part of his prep- aration McIvor took part in the State Beach Series at Takapuna Beach last Tuesday night . In 2003 McIvor fought George Kulcsar in the Fight For Life event which raised money for the Yellow Ribbon Campaign -- an organisation aimed at raising awareness of youth suicide. While McIvor came out a lot worse for wear than his opponent, he seems to have more of an affinity with swim- ming. While he trains at the Parnell pools most mornings, McIvor de- cided to come along to the Takapuna event to get used to thrashing around with everyone in the water''. McIvor got involved with the swim series after friend and col- league Awen Gutten- biel, who's kids were doing it, suggested he give it a go. I've only been doing itforamonthanda half and it's like dis- covering a new religion. It's been great for getting me up in the morning and then feel- ing great afterwards. Mentally I've never felt better.''
