    sky And all I ask is a sailing ship and the NSRI standing by Not many people in Napier know that the Napier Yacht Club was established about five years ago The age old ceremony in the form of the traditional opening cruise with sail past and salute to a yet to be commodore was duly performed by Okko with his OK dinghy and yours truly with plastic soapdish dinghy on the local dam Unfortunately a stiffish breeze caused both our craft to capsize The OK dinghy centreboard got swollen and jammed in the centreboard casing my little boat did not like the hidden rocks and so the cruise was abandoned Somehow the opening cruise also became the closing cruise and we never went back The effort of launching and retrieving the craft was just too laborious But I still look back fondly on some memorable impressions of past sailing experiences the fun bits the anxious bits and the downright frightening bits e g Sailing within ten metres of an upended flapping whale tail within the Simonstown yacht anchorage Playing with friendly dolphins darting around and under the yacht one thumps the side of the hull and they race around like excited dogs while following the boat Leaving a phosphorescent sparkly fairytale road 500metres long behind us on a very dark night Rounding Cape Point and looking up at its awesome towering majesty Coasting down huge swells while running with the wind To those of you who would venture forth on the deep blue sea you would have to at least learn the lingo which to the uninitiated can be confusing at best and at worst unintelligible You must know when to port your helm go about gybe ease off harden up swing the compass luff the main weigh anchor drop the hook Every one knows that port gives way to starboard Reaching especially broad reaching running and gullwinging is usually more fun than beating Of course you can stop or steady the boat by heading into the wind and sheeting the jib to windward and backing the main Alternatively one can feather the jib and harden up on the main By performing the latter there is a danger of going into irons which could lead to broaching Broaching in rough waters can be dodgy and absolutely deadly if in sight of the yacht club A spirit of light hearted and unforgetting schadenfreude prevails at all yacht clubs and one is not allowed to forget any sail fudging in full view of the bar So those are just some of the terms for the act of sailing never mind the terminology for the hull parts pulpit pushpit gooseneck rails lazarette boom vang spreaders etc and the standing and running rigging and the bits and pieces that inevitably encrust a boat So for those Napier landlubbers who would venture forth to distant shores I graciously offer a list of basic sailing phraseology with which you can impress your friends and loved

    selling clothes at very low prices to those who cannot afford to pay more all proceeds going to Child Welfare to be used in these hard times to assist the many very needy people in Napier with basic food Last week for the first time ever our stock ran out So could we ask the Napier community to look in their cupboards for those items that perhaps they will never wear again the jacket that is too small the jerseys that are rather worn but would still keep somebody warm T shirts bit shabby but fine as a vest clothes the children have outgrown warm clothing for men women and children If you find only one suitable item it will be gratefully received Donations can be dropped off at the either of the shops on Friday afternoon 1 4pm or we can arrange collection telephone Glen Goosens on 028 423 3819 or John Cook 084 588 5747 Regarding the scarecrows at the last Patat festival Rosalind Stone had the following comment I was not in Napier for the Patat Festival as I was enjoying a few blissful days in the African bush with my siblings and their significant others so I am not really in a position to comment However with regards to the lack of scarecrows may I offer this snippet last year certain parties took it upon themselves to regulate when they were to be put on display and by which date they had to be removed we were even instructed to call them patatmense not scarecrows Many received criticism about the way they were made or the creatures they depicted all in all it spoiled the fun of spontaneity on many levels and since it has now become a competition with exhibits marked with an official entry number well it just ain t what it used to be and Dinkie Yule says Hello to Napier Natter I understand your complaint about the lack of scarecrows but at the same time scarecrows are hardly a tradition in Napier They were introduced 4 or 5 years ago and I believe the novelty has worn off Perhaps someone should come up with a new idea something more typically Napier Stellenbosch is alive with scarecrows protecting the strawberry fields What do we have to advertise or protect Perhaps something to do with patats Dinky Yule This letter was submitted by Paul a recent addition to our village All well here but I would just like to inform you of the following We are both now tired of being harassed by the street kids both outside the liquor store but mostly outside the OK MINI Mart So much so that we have been in contact with the local police station now on 2 occasions And I will not tolerate anymore We have been quiet law abiding citizens and then you have these kids and youngsters confronting you when you say NO they get aggressive So much so that I called the cops
