2:10 The Solo Yachtie - Kevin Le Poidevin - For over forty years the solo trans tasman yacht challenge has been a magnet for adventurers. It's a particularly challenging race.. for the Tasman sea is one of the more difficult seas in the world to navigate.. especially if you're going it alone. Kevin De Poidevin has just arrived in New Plymouth from Australia.. having sailed his single mast cruise here in order to be ready for the challenge which takes place next month. The trip across took him nine days and it was second-time lucky for the sailor - after an earlier attempt in January wasn't too successful.
2:20 The Yoga Chef - Faye Winmill - You often hear it said... but in this case it's true...Dunedin woman Faye Winmill has packed more into her thirty two years than most people do in a lifetime.
In her late teens she travelled to Australia to explore that country until she ran out of money... Then she trained as a chef in her early twenties, before she left for Europe where she walked solo from Paris to Spain.. She's travelled the world aboard luxury yachts. peeling and de-seeding grapes for fussy captains..and she's even cooked for director Steven Speilberg on his luxury boat.
And while it may all sound very glamorous...Faye was always looking for something else... and after spending six months in Costa Rica... she finally came home to Dunedin where she's opened her own Yoga studio.. which she says is a dream come true.
2:30 Reading - In today's extract from his childhood memoir, Bruce Anlsey paints a picture of his family, its battles with depression and money, and the peace and companionship of New Brighton. That's in part 2 of Gods and Little Fishes at half past two.
