    and satisfying paddles that I have ever done As it got darker it became obvious that it was going to be a very black night as there was no moon I did have a light setup for the kayak but I was worried that it wouldn t have enough battery to last the whole night so I elected to save it until things got really difficult I rather timidly headed off into the darkness The first couple of hours were probably the scariest for me I knew the coastline really well so I had a good mental image of the different stages but it took quite a while to get used to how the surf ski handled itself when I couldn t see the water The problem with this kayak is that it s designed for surfing waves so it wants to get up and boogie but I was worried that if I allowed it to get away from me I would be rolled out Ultimately I just got used to the feeling of the kayak moving independently under me and I just had to trust that it would handle itself which it did very well The wind picked up however and Tim faced another challenge of paddling hard through gusts that would rocket down unseen valleys and out over the sea Tim reported that he d prepare himself and paddle flat out through the gusts knowing that they would only last a short distance before the next headland or cliff blocked them At around 1am Tim got back to the start of Waihi beach I knew that I had a very tough stretch of paddling ahead of me At the end of the beach is the Bowentown harbour entrance and this has a bar system that stretches out to sea for a couple of kilometres I ve be caught out by this before so I wasn t going to go anywhere near it The big problem was that in going out and around this bar I had to paddle right out into the exposed ocean where the wind was very strong up around 15 knots in some places Again this wouldn t usually be a problem in the day but at night and coming from a side on direction it was insanely tough to deal with My body was working overtime just to stay upright and I had many close calls where I nearly came out Thankfully a summer of training in these conditions enabled me to hold it together just At the 2pm marker when I was square on with the bar I succumbed to another problem The cold With the strong wind flicking all of my paddle spray over me I d become saturated and I slowly began to freeze My body was just working so hard that it couldn t keep me warm anymore so I knew I had to get changed Luckily I d thought to bring my Sharkskin Chillproof pants and top These are

    times a year So what is it like to use Occupational Therapy skills in Vanuatu There are no OTs in Vanuatu and only a few Physiotherapists who work in the hospital All the equipment on the island is donated by countries such as Australia and New Zealand It takes much problem solving and creative thinking to find the best solution using the limited resources that are available Companies such as Cubro generously assist with provision of equipment On this occasion Cubro kindly donated several foam cushions which were a valuable addition to our supplies They have also donated two wheelchairs which are destined to travel on the next shipment Let me introduce you to some of the children who benefit from the generous contributions and donations from companies such as Cubro Louis and his brother have developed significant contractures of their upper and lower limbs and require significant postural seating to minimise further upper and lower limb contractures and spinal deformities We measured up one of Cubro s wheelchairs that is yet to be shipped for this bright young boy and in the interim the foam cushions from Cubro were able to be cut and custom fitted to his existing wheelchair This little guy has a lot of determination Tearing up the hill using a two wheeled walker he looks like he ll lose his balance only to regain it and then charges up the next hill He is a man on a mission and the terrain does not stop him We assessed him for a four wheeled walker only to decide to stick with what is working for him for now We trialled using sticks that his grandmother could hold in front of him which does limit his independence for now however does encourage a better standing position a
