Grueling Tybee 500 race comes to Hollywood Beach


By BETH FEINSTEIN-BARTL
Waterfront News Writer
The Tybee 500 is getting a new start.
The 500-mile endurance race will be moving from
Islamorada to Hollywood Beach, where some 20 to 25 cata-
marans are expected to set sail on Sunday, May 8.
Chuck Bargeron, president and general manager of the
Tybee Island Sailing Association, said having the event in
Hollywood will add more visibility.
"It will bring out the fans," he said. "It will make the race
more open to the public."
Bargeron calls the Tybee 500 an extreme sailing event
using two-person catamarans that span 18 to 20 feet long and
eight and a half to 10 feet wide.
"There is no cabin," he said. "All it is are two hulls and
a trampoline.
"What people will see are men and women sailors who
will not just be dressed for sailing, they're dressed for sur-
vival," Bargeron said. "They must have the proper attire and
gear. These boats can flip over. Parts can break. The biggest
thing is the weather."
The Tybee 500 was started three years ago, with a route
that spanned from Islamorada to Tybee Island, a community
on the coast of Georgia, some 15 miles east of Savannah.
The Tybee 500, taking place Sunday, May 8 to Friday,
May 13, is one of two races that comprise the Atlantic 1000.
The northern portion, the Outerbanks 500, is a 500-mile jour-
ney from Tybee Island to Kill Devil Hills, NC, that will be
held Sunday, May 15 to Friday, May 20. Participants can
enter one race, or both.
C&H Productions in Albuquerque, NM, will film the
Atlantic 1000. A documentary is slated to air on a cable chan-
nel network, to be announced.
The celebration surrounding the Tybee 500 will kick off
from 4 to 8 p.m. on Saturday, May 7 with live entertainment
and a meet and greet with the sailors at the Ramada Inn

Here's a scene from last year's Baynanza cleanup of the
Biscayne Bay shoreline, mainland, beach and islands,
when thousands of volunteers picked up 24 tons of litter.
Not many yachtsmen, anglers or waterfront property
owners in this particular bunch of beachcombers, but they
share a sense of responsibility for their environment This
year's cleanup day is Saturday, April 16.

Two person-manned
catamarans will race
in the 500-mile Tybee
from May 8-13. It's
extreme sailing where
racers must be prepared
for everything from bad
weather to breakdowns.
The race is one of two
events comprising the
Atlantic 1000..


Hollywood Beach Resort.
The race's first leg, a 50-mile loop from Hollywood
Beach to Key Biscayne and back, will be from noon to 4 p.m.
on Sunday, May 8. The loop was necessary to make up for
the lost mileage when the event was moved from Islamorada,
Bargeron said.
The second leg of the Tybee 500 will take place at 10
a.m. on Monday, May 9, from Hollywood to Jupiter. From
there, the boats will continue to legs in Cocoa Beach,
Ormond Beach, Femandina Beach and then to Tybee Island.
On each leg there will be an overnight stay, allowing the
racers and their crews to rest, eat and work on their boats,
Bargeron said.
Racers must be prepared for anything, from breakdowns


ferry volunteers in
By ARNOLD MARKOWITZ
Waterfront News Writer
"April is the nicest month," poet T.S. Eliot surely would
have written, if only he lived in Florida.
"April is the cruelest month," is the literal opening of
his long, gloomy 1922 poem. '"The Waste Land" is reprint-
ed so ubiquitously, introducing topics so varied that it must
be required by some harsh press law, furtively exempted
from the First Amendment. If so, invoking it here should
bring us into compliance.
If Eliot still lived, it would be good to have him in
Miami on Saturday, April 16, for the annual Biscayne Bay
Cleanup Day, a shoreline project that's the highlight of the
month-long bay celebration called Baynanza. The sight of
7,000 volunteers stooping to pick up and bag a mini-
mountain of trash, garbage, refuse and rubbish, should ele-
vate his mood.
Then we'd ask Eliot for a few verses. He could call it
The Waste Land Too.
It might seem like the cruelest title, but in fact there is
plenty of dirty work every year this one's the 23rd for


to approaching storms. The boats must leave for each leg,
regardless of weather conditions, he said. Bargeron said.
Jay Sonnenklar, who won last year's Tybee 500 with
John Casey of Orlando, said sailors must also be in top
physical shape.
"The better in shape you are in, the more competitive
you can be;" said Sonnenklar, an auto repair shop owner who
lives in Davie.
To prepare for last year's Tybee 500, Sonnenklar said he
and Casey had to lose 20 pounds each.
"The 1-20 made by Performance Catamaran works best
in all conditions with a combined crew weight of 345

Dade's Baynanza
all those volunteers, picking up stuff from the bay's main-
land and island shorelines.
It doesn't belong there, yet there it is. Where does it
come from? All over the place.
Analysis of Baynanza collections determined long
ago that most of the trash is not the sort of thing that is
tossed off boats or blown overboard. Most of it is discard-
ed someplace else.
If someone (not you!) tosses a hamburger wrapper
from a car on the Turnpike, it has a good chance of being
wind-blown into a canal and eventually drifting eastward
to the bay.
Garbage tossed over a backyard fence into a canal,
even many miles inland, seldom stays there. In rainy sea-
sons, the canals run high and the water is released. It flows
into the bay, carrying with it anything that floats or sus-
pends in water.
"We need to prevent this from happening," says Julio
Calle, who is running Baynanza this year for Miami-Dade

Sealife in all its forms to star at upcoming aquarium show


BY BETH FEINSTEIN-BARTL
Waterfront News Writer
Fish and corals from around the world will be on dis-
play at the 49th Annual Florida Marine Aquarium Show.
The event, organized by the Florida Marine Aquarium
Society, creates an awareness of creatures that most people
would never see unless they donned a wet suit.
"How often would you see a fish that is indigenous to 120
feet off the coast of Australia, swimming in a reef tank in South
Florida?" said Herman Jordan, the group's past president.
Jordan, of North Miami, will be among the participants
who will have an aquarium on display. Some 100 saltwater
tanks ranging from two to 700 gallons will be exhibited
from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, May 13 and
14, and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday, May 15 at the War
Memorial Auditorium in Fort Lauderdale.
Admission is $7 for adults and $5 for children ages 5 to
12. Kids younger than five will be admitted free, said Lisa
Maya, society president and 2005 show chairperson.
This year's show will mark the first time that the socie-
ty has held its event at War Memorial. The group previous-
ly held its 2003 and 2004 shows at the International Game
Fish Association and Fishing Hall of Fame Museum in Dana
Beach, said Maya of Plantation.
The show is open to members and nonmembers, from
hobbyists to commercial businesses. Tanks will be judged in
several categories.

Fish and corals from around the world will be on display
at the 49th Annual Florida Marine Aquarium Show.
The event will also feature touch tanks where visitors
can hold a sea urchin, hermit crab or a star fish, talks by pub-
lished experts, information on environmental organizations
and a vendors area where people can purchase live fish,
tanks and aquarium accessories.
Over the years, the show's attendance has grown. Last
year's show drew about 5,000 people.
The Florida Marine Aquarium Society, formed in 1955,
holds activities throughout the year with meetings and field
trips. But the annual show is the organization's main event.
The group has about 200 members, most of whom live in
Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach counties. Meetings
are held from 6:45 to 9 p.m. on the fourth Tuesday of each
month at various locations. Annual individual memberships
are $15 per person and include a monthly newsletter.
One of the club's goals is to educate the public. At the
show, there will be an exhibit on how to set up a coral reef


aquarium. Hobbyists will be shown how to correctly raise
fish and coral in captivity, so that less coral and fish will be
taken from the ocean, Maya said.
"We're trying to show people that you can have a nice
setup and raise your own fish," said Nancy Pavlik, a society
board member. "There are ways to have tanks other than tak-
ing corals and species of fish from the ocean."
Pavlik will have two entries in the show. One of her
aquariums will compete in the novelty division, reserved for
tanks with themes.
Past themes submitted by participants have included
Cinderella's castle with lighting and music. Another tank
had a model train running through it.
With the group moving its show to a new venue, the
board decided to add another feature to the activities. For the
first time, there will be a fund-raiser from 6 to 9 p.m. on
Thursday, May 12 at War Memorial, with proceeds benefit-
ing the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Southern Florida and
Ronald McDonald House of Fort Lauderdale.
Tickets are $20 in advance and $25 at the door. Guests
will be able to see a preview of the upcoming show. There
will also be raffles, silent auction, food and drinks.
"The society believes it's important to work within our
community and support worthy organizations," said Pavlik,
a volunteer with Ronald McDonald House.
For more information on the fund-raiser and the 49th
Annual Florida Marine Aquarium Show contact Lisa Maya

Wanted: Anglers to aid the state in snook research


By ARNOLD MARKOWITZ
Waterfront News Writer
Warm weather and warm water are heating up the snook
bite in Florida. Anglers who catch snook can help biologists
in the state's Snook Research Program to collect data they
use tracking the fish's abundance and growth.
Here's how:
Carefully measure each snook you catch from the tip of
its nose to the fork of its tail and make a note of the size. The
easiest method is a measuring sticker, stuck to the gunwales
of your boat.
If you're going to release the fish, lift it out of the water
horizontally with both hands not with a combination lip-
grip and weighing device, which may stretch the fish's
mouth and gill area, harming its ability to breathe, eat and
survive.
Work quickly but carefully. Don't touch the snook's
knife-edged gill covers.
To weigh the fish, suspend it only for the few seconds
needed to take note of the weight. Quickly, gently, return the
snook to the water, holding it level until it swims away.
Report the measurements by e-mail to the nearest of the
four research biologists listed below. In the southeast area,
you can phone Miami-based biologist Lisa Ockelmann-
LoBello at 305-361-4566.
Do not bring fish to her office, for she is often out in the
field.
If you're successful enough to catch keepers, at least 26
inches long but no longer than 34 inches, save their carcass-
es (remove the fillets for dinner but don't gut the fish) and
notify the biologist who covers your territory.
Along with handing over the remains, you'll be asked
for exact details the number of snook you caught that day,
and for each one the length of the fish, type of bait or lure
used, tidal stage and time of day.
If you can't meet the biologist in person
within 48 hours, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Research
Institute has an online list of locations in each district
where you can park your carcass and notes. See
www.floridamarine.org/features/view_article.asp?id=15110.

Lauded billfish tournament aims to hook general public


By ARNOLD MARKOWITZ
Waterfront News Writer
Oh, to catch such a fish.
Out in the Atlantic Ocean,
probably near the edge of the Gulf
Stream within a two hour north-
south boat ride from Miami Beach,
$1 million will be figuratively
S impaled on the bill of a sailfish. It
S will be there for one minute, no
longer, but competitors in the
Miami Billfish Tournament will
Arnold Markowitz have three days to go after it.
That's the newest "drooly" prize in the tournament, to be
staged at the Miami Beach Marina from Friday through
Sunday, April 8-10. Even though the odds are heavily against
anyone winning the million it's more a lottery than a game
of fishing skill you won't need many fingers to count the
fishers who turn up their noses.
That should bring some added public attention to an
event in its 23rd year, and the biggest thing in southeastern
Florida's competitive fishing scene.
Money attracts the best captains and teams, and they
attract each other. Competition is both fierce and friendly.
Once it's over and checks are handed to the champs,
the tournament staff writes more checks to benefit marine
environment projects. Last year, 15 grants worth $47,650
were awarded for research, education and conservation
projects. The largest, $7,500, went to the Guy Harvey
Research Institute.
"We try to spread the money out," says Judy Layne, the
tournament's new managing director. "A lot of organizations
we donate to do a lot of work with kids."
The tournament puts its mouth where its money is, too.
It was the first major tournament to require the use of circle
hooks, which seldom get snagged in the gullets of fish that
swallow their prey whole.
Sailfish eat that way. A J-shaped hook, stuck deep in a
fish that's meant to be released, is hard to remove without
causing serious injury. The in-curved shape of a circle hook
usually causes it to stick the fish in the comer of the jaws,
making it easier to release the fish unharmed.
This tournament also \as among the first to change to a
no-kill format. To encourage releasing.fish and survival of the
species. no credit is given for a boaecr bdlfish.

In the dockside merriment that characterizes big fish-
ing tournaments, the nobler purposes often are overlooked.
Since Layne succeeded Karen McGinley as managing
director, she has been working on new ways to spike more
public interest in the conservation causes and attract more
people who will enjoy the sideshows even though they
don't fish competitively.
"I want to have the public come out to the event and see
what we're about and what we're trying to accomplish, so
hopefully girlfriends and wives who wouldn't otherwise
come out will, or they'll stay longer," Layne says.
"The International Game Fish Association will be out
there with a touch tank. There will be sea cucumbers and so
on, nothing that bites. We'll have more things for kids the
touch tank, a casting contest. The World Billfish Series will
have a trailer with an interactive fishing exhibit."

The tournament puts its mouth
where its money is, too. It was the
first major tournament to require
the use of circle hooks, which
seldom get snagged in the gullets of
fish that swallow their prey whole.

The public-invited parties, in the main tent Friday
evening and at dockside each afternoon, are being planned to
accommodate more people than in past years. Seven new
sponsors have joined up, and some will promote their prod-
ucts heavily.
This year there's also a redesigned website,
(www.miamibillfish.com/) which includes an online store.
The annual silent auction has grown so popular that this
year it's being expanded to a second tent. There are raffles
too countless to count, with most of the attention focused on
a 25-foot Contender boat powered by a 300-hp Yamaha out-
board engine, and a separately raffled 200hp Yamaha out-
board. Contender and Yamaha are the tournament's signa-
ture sponsors.
Guy Harvey's painting of sailfish and dolphin, commis-
sioned for the tournament program's cover, will be auc-
tioned. Harvey will be there on Sunday to sign prints and
merchandise emblazoned with his popular fish art.
The tournament regularly draws good crowds, lots of

people who aren't in the competition, but with free admission
and no turnstiles, there are no accurate data on attendance.
The marketing folks that is Layne's regular profession
- work it out by live reckoning. Of an estimated 4,000 spec-
tators and sideliners last year, she thinks 40 to 50 percent
were not connected to the tournament. She wants more peo-
ple like that.
The $1 million prize is posted by Berkley, a fishing tack-
le conglomerate with fins in every sort of water except maybe
kitchen sinks and mud puddles. The million and a few qui-
eter contributions got the company's name into the tourna-
ment's title, already packed with the signature sponsors.
Without stopping to catch your breath, can you say
Yamaha Contender Miami Billfish Tournament Presented by
Berkley?
Berkley also got its fishing line billed as the official line
of the tournament, which didn't have such a thing before.
Snicker at it if you like, but if you want to win the million
you'll have to switch to Berkley's line to qualify.
Here's how that contest works: Everyone who catches a
billfish, using a Berkley line, reports it at once to tournament
headquarters. The catch time is recorded in military-style
hours and minutes. At the end of each day, the catch list is
turned into a drawing. One winner is drawn. This happens on
each of the three fishing days.
Chance of winning? Slight.
At the end, a pro-selected combination of day and time
is removed from a sealed envelope.
"There are 1,260 minutes in military time in the tourna-
ment" Layne says. "They select a day and a minute like day
two at 12:35, and if you caught your fish at that time you win
a million dollars."
Not all at once. The rules say it will be paid in 40 annu-
al bites of $25,000 a year.
Mostly, it insures some extra attention to a tournament
that's already the crown jewel in South Florida's spring,
series. It seems to have reached its peak of participation with
a range of 100 to 110 boats entered.
Last year there were 99 boats with 442 fishermen and
women who caught and released 137 sailfish in three days.
That's a poor average, 31 percent of a fish for each reg-
istered contestant.
The slow bite was blamed on weather, too windy and too
cold. Sailfish catch well when the seas are a little hilly, not

Sage advice:

Don't do that!

By MARK ERCOLIN
Waterfront News Law Columnist
In an old Vaudeville routine, a dis-
tressed man walks into a doctor's office,
tapping his left elbow with his right hand
and yelling, "Doctor, doctor! It hurts when
I do this!"
The wizened old physician looks up
from his work and replies, "Well, then
don't do that!"
Many legal situations could be
summed up with that same advice, even if
one feels justified in taking certain actions.
In some legal situations, a proactive
stance can harm a case rather than create a
resolution to it. Napoleon said it best:
"Those who seek peace should avoid the
pinpricks that precede cannon-shots."
For those in the maritime business
world, I have a few examples of how a
proactive reaction can make a case worse.
As always, it should be noted that these
examples are purely hypothetical and
should not be mistaken as real cases.
First case scenario: removing equip-
ment partially or completely installed
from a vessel because the vessel's repre-
sentatives failed to pay for the equipment.
Why the concern? Items installed or
placed in the vessel for the use of that ves-
sel, can be deemed, for most purposes, to
have already become part of that vessel.
Barring appropriate contractual
arrangements to the contrary, the removal
of such equipment without legal process
could be construed as an act of trespass
and conversion, and work against a profes-
sional's legitimate claim in getting paid.
The consequences could be a lower
collection award, or even penalty costs
due to the action. There may even be a
counter suit for damages that resulted
from the removal of the equipment.
Naturally, the best way to avoid such


situations is the proper use of contract,
payment schedules, and communication
between parties to prevent misunderstand-
ings. Before a maritime professional pur-
sues collecting payment, it is best to seek
appropriate counsel first.
Another hypothetical example is the
failure to make proper plans for a vessel
preceding a hurricane. And yes, believe it
or not, the next hurricane season is only
two months away
I find that more than a few people
don't understand that choices made dur-
ing a hurricane warning might actually be
legally questionable. A prime example of
this is a doctrine called "Easement by
Necessity."
Generally, under this doctrine such an
easement comes into play when you are
on a normal voyage and then are forced to
moor or beach your vessel due to unfore-
seen emergency conditions. But this
should not be confused with a situation
involving a hurricane warning.
Arguably, the existence of a hurri-
cane warning does not give a boat owner
carte blanche to trespass on the property
of others.
Indeed, if you have a vessel in south
Florida where hurricanes are a very real
and known risk, it should not be unreason-
able for a boater to make prearrangements
with property owners (and this may mean
actually paying them) for securing that
vessel to their property.
Invoking the Easement by Necessity
doctrine in these circumstances may not
be appropriate and, depending on the
facts, could have consequences that might
include the vessel's forced removal by
authorities and even the possibility of the
vessel's insurance company refusing cov-
erage for losses.

Speak Eas




New River is a

dumping ground

By GLORIA KATZ
Waterfront News Guest Columnist
All that development along Fort
Lauderdale's New River, especially the
North Fork is it good or bad?
Well, it depends.
For the last few years, no one has
treated the New River with affection.
People have used the river to deposit
refrigerators, car seats, tires, food con-
tainers and other garbage. Every few
months groups such as Florida Atlantic
University's Planning Society, the
Broward Urban River Trails, the Wildlife
Research Team, Broward County, and
several neighborhood associations have

cleaned it up.
Studies have been done on the ecoli
situation in the river but no one can defin-
itively say why it's there. According to Dr.
Jaap Vos, chairman of FAU's Department
of Urban and Regional Planning, it is a
combination of a lack of storm water treat-
ment or storm water retention, no tides to
flush the water through, and the possibility
of septic tank leakage.
Not so long ago, the North Fork was
the most polluted waterway in Broward
County. Now that is beginning to change.
Of course, refrigerators and tires
don't help the situation. Dr. Vos says
there had been less big trash dumping of
late, at least until the last few months,
when suddenly roofing, PVC pipe and 2
by 4s started showing up.
As nearby development is complet-
ed, probably the 2 by 4s will disappear
and pesticides from people's lawns will
be the replacement.
According to Kevin Carter, natural
resource specialist at the Broward
County Environmental Protection
Department, now that permits are
required, the upland is being cleaned


up, and the City of Fort Lauderdale
retrofits neighborhoods so the storm
water does not flow directly into the
river. So changes for the better are
slowly occurring.
In the meantime, what can the city,
businesses and residents living along
the New River do to preserve one of the
last remaining natural waterways in
Broward County?
The city could perform better code
enforcement. Bus depot debris, illegal
dumping and fence material do not have
to be tolerated. The problem of water
run-off from the streets should be empha-
sized. And residents and businesses
could become more aware and caring
about protecting the river.
Carter says the Audubon Society is
working to develop a nature center on the
river. There are waterfowl, osprey and
blue heron to see and enjoy.
Maybe the incoming residents from
all the new development occurring along
the river could create the incentive to
keep their scenic backyard clean and
beautiful. I'm sure the FAU Planning
Society could use some help.

Lauderdale commissioner. Periodically,
she will address issues affecting South
Florida's waterways.

New River already becoming overcrowded

without adding more boats to the mix


To the Editor:
Ms. Gloria Katz's column, "Speak Easy" in the
March issue, titled "The River can aid transit in
Lauderdale," makes one wonder what's happening to the
City of Fort Lauderdale. With the massive influx of new
residences being built which will only add to the heavy,
slow automobile traffic we already have why are some
people trying to make the New River more congested than
it is now becoming?
Now, kayaks, personal watercraft, 177-foot megay-
achts, tug boats, work and fuel barges, all try to find pas-
sage on the river. The mention of a high speed, no wake
(this has to be an oxymoron) ferry trying to pass a towed,
slow-moving megayacht down river would really be
something to see.


Le r t I o h E It


The author points out that Brisbane and Sydney,
Australia have waterbuses. We already have
waterbuses. Those cities are on harbors with more
room to navigate.
Here on weekends when it's windy and the waters are
rough, hundreds of boaters seek out the calm waters of the
New River. If the future of the river is to be exploited and
turned into a commercial river, this area might experience
a drop in pleasure boating, as boating in Fort Lauderdale
will no longer be a pleasure.
Michael Santangeloi,
Fort Lauderdale


Legally no action can be the best action

Basically, in most cases the Easement b
doctrine is an affirmative defense and should
anticipated as a right to commit trespass. Even in
circumstances, case law holds that the vessel w
be strictly liable for any damage inflicted while

By the way, it should be noted that under
marinas may not adopt, maintain or enforce pol
ing vessels to be removed from marinas fo
issuance of a hurricane watch or warning.
So this should be taken into account in yoi

Workshop to show
By ARNOLD MARKOWITZ
Waterfront News Writer
Marina and boatyard operators who want to earn reputa-
tions for cleanliness with state certification to back it up -
can started by attending a workshop meeting on Tuesday,
April 5 in Miami.
Bill Richards, southeast coordinator of the Clean
Marina/Clean Boatyard program, wants to help marinas
become pollution-proof even get them state money to pay
for sanitary pump-out equipment.
His success rate in Miami? So far, not so good.
Now he's inviting 16 marina and boatyard operators
with facilities along the Miami River to the workshop, which
will take place at the library at the University of Miami's
marine science campus on the Rickenbacker Causeway.
The project has the endorsements of the Miami River
Commission, the Marine Industries Association of Florida
and Florida SeaGrant, an environmental outfit that's active in
numerous anti-pollution projects.
Marella Crane, SeaGrant's representative in Miami,
knows from experience that recruiting participants is like
beating into a northwester, all headwinds and head seas.
"We had one last year. We invited probably about 20 peo-
ple and three or four came. We got them to attend, but not to
follow through. It's voluntary, not mandatory."
The Clean Marina/Clean Boatyard requirements are not
very labor-intensive, just sound housekeeping and manage-
ment practices that are good for business, Crane said.
Generally about 20 to 25 percent of those who attend the
workshop sessions do follow through, but not in Miami-
Dade, said Richards.
Because state law does not compel marinas and boat-
yards to meet standards, there's a financial inducement: The
state will contribute 75 percent toward the cost of a sanitary
pump-out system, no matter what size. For a basic system
costing around $5,000, the owner's cost would be $1,250.
For small operations in the other five counties of
Richards' southeastern district, that might be persuasive, but
not in Miami-Dade.
"Fear is stronger," he said.
Indeed, large portions of the waterfront industrial popu-
lace come from third-world countries where any sort of gov-
ernment representative is presumed to be the boogeyman.

how to achieve 'clean marina' status


Richards is afraid that fear will keep Clean
Marina/Clean Boatyard piddling along at idle speed.
"It is peculiar to Miami Dade," he said. "And we do have
language barriers, just in Miami-Dade."
In the whole county, only four facilities have Clean
Marina certificates Dinner Key, Miamarina at Bayside,
Marbella on Brickell Bay Drive and Waterways Marina in
Aventura. There are many more, both public and private.
Statewide, Richards said, there are about 2,000 marinas
and 400 boatyards. Of those, 97 marinas and 27 boatyards
had clean certification in mid-March. He estimated annual
growth at about 15 percent.
Fear isn't always a factor. For small operations any-
where, Richards said, expense is sometimes an issue.
Meeting all the standards for certification typically costs
between $2,000 and $2,500. A lot of that is for signs and
stickers designating places to discard fuel and oil filters, drop
trash and locate the pump-outs.

Crew's goal: to be in


pounds," Sonnenklar said. "It's no coincidence that in the past
five years, the winning teams all weighed in the 340 range."
To lose the weight, Sonnenklar said he and Casey ran
three miles a day, seven days a week. "And we are both in
good shape to begin with, but we needed to be a precise
weight for the boat," Sonnenklar said.
Being in good shape has other benefits too. At last year's
Tybee 500, Sonnenklar and Casey, owner of a medical tran-
scribing company, had to drag their catamaran 60 feet to
cross the finish line. They won the race by a three minute and
41 second margin.
"We were coming into the beach and there was a big wave
because of the storm that had just come through," Sonnenklar
said. "It lifted the back of the boat and flipped it end over end."
Sonnenklar has participated in several endurance races,
including the Worrell 1000, a 12-day, 1,000-mile race from
Miami to Virginia Beach. He is taking a break and will not
compete in the 2005 Tybee 500.
He thinks moving the start to Hollywood Beach will
help gain the race more publicity.

Public marinas have cash problems, too not that a city
or county can't afford the cost, but departments running the
facilities operate on less flexible budgets with less discre-
tionary money than a corporate marina.
Richards finds it easier to work with private marinas.
"Most of them now are privately owned, a good portion by
huge conglomerates. A corporation wants the status of being
a clean marina, and they can pay for it. Word of mouth is get-
ting out that it's a good thing."

Up close
The Clean Marina/Clean Boatyard workshop is Tuesday,
April 5, at the library at the University of Miami's school
of marine science, 4600 Rickenbacker Causeway in
Miami, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Call Marella Crane, 305-
421-4017 or Bill Richards, Florida Department of
Environmental Protection, 561-681-6667.


shipshape condition
"When it started in the Florida Keys, there were only the
sailors and their teams," Sonnenklar said.
Participation in the endurance races has become a fami-
ly affair, with Sonnenklar's wife and children being part of
the ground crew.
Sonnenklar also enjoys the adventure. "It's the thrill of
putting yourself in harm's way where only your wits and sail-
ing ability will get you safely to shore," he said.
Kenny Pierce, owner of a landscaping business who
lives in Miami, is another sailor who enjoys the challenge of
entering catamaran endurance races.
Pierce won the 2003 Tybee 500 with team member Steve
Lomayer, a home remodeler from Tavineer. Last year, he and
Lomayer came in second.
This year, Pierce will be sailing in the Tybee 500 with
Sonenklar's former teammate, Casey.
"I've sailed in all kinds of weather and sailed through the
night," Pierce said. "It takes a toll on you."
Yet, Pierce loves the competition. "I enjoy long distance
sailing," he said.

Broward aims to be designated as a wildlife habitat


By WILLIAM R. HAWKINS
Waterfront News Writer
City by city, yard by yard, Broward is expanding its
wildlife habitat so that more than 1,300 areas are designated
environmentally sensitive which could earn the county
national recognition.
If all goes according to plan, Broward could be the first
county in the U.S. to be awarded the designation as a
wildlife habitat.
"It's an ambitious goal, but I think we will make it," said
Diana Guidry, NatureScape coordinator for Broward.
"Residents and governmental units have been responding
positively to our educational efforts and it's working."
NatureScape aims to create natural sanctuaries for
migrating wildlife through the use of "Florida-friendly"
landscaping. The designation as a wildlife habitat is part of
a national program through the National Wildlife
Federation, an environmental organization promoting pro-
tection of wildlife.
"We can conserve water in many ways, like using native
plants that have low water needs, and create through land-
scaping attractive yards that become habitats for butterflies,
birds and other wildlife," Guidry said.
NatureScapes can be created in private yards, school
grounds, public parks, workplaces and the community in
general.
Planting native vegetation reduces the need for water,
and fertilizers and pesticides, which are carried away in rain-
water runoff polluting waterways.
Recycling yard waste into mulch also helps retain mois-
ture and prevents erosion, Guidry said.
About 60 percent of water used in Broward County is
for outside irrigation, she said. Broward also has the distinc-
tion of using more water per capital than any of Florida's 67
counties.
Wildlife is easily drawn to neighborhoods with creative
landscaping that provide shelter and food for birds and but-
terflies.
Individuals or groups can participate in the program and
earn a NatureScape yard certification by meeting certain cri-


Uitalm

has been turned into a wildlife sanctuary for butterflies
and birds because of her careful gardening efforts.

teria in conserving water and wildlife landscaping.
Guidry said hundreds of areas have already earned the
certifications across the county, but she doesn't yet have a
tally and will be working on that in the months ahead. If the
requirement for 1,300 certified yards is reached, the
National Wildlife Federation will designate Broward a
wildlife habitat.
Broward County Mayor Kristin Jacobs has been cham-
pioning NatureScape for several years and heads the
NatureScape Broward Task Force, which meets quarterly to
monitor progress of the program.
"NatureScape is a voluntary program designed to edu-
cate and motivate homeowners to understand our ecosystem
and the ways we inadvertently harm our water quality and
availability," she said. "The program also provides informa-
tion on changes we can make and why we should."
The cities of Wilton Manors and Coconut Creek have


become leaders in promoting NatureScape. Later this year
one of them may become Broward's first city to be designat-
ed as a wildlife habitat.
"We're well on our way," said M.E. DePalma, a Wilton
Manors volunteer coordinator. DePalma's home on the
Middle River is a gardener's paradise drawing birds and but-
terflies to the native landscape.
Earlier this year, the Wilton Manors' City Council voted
to file an application with the Natural Wildlife Federation
for the city to be certified as a wildlife habitat. The filing will
take place soon, according to DePalma who said she and city
officials are collecting data of support showing what has
been happening.
"We are in great shape because we can show how city
parks, private businesses, private yards and community edu-
cation and outreach have all been used to get yard spaces
certified," said DePalma. She estimates more than 30 yards,
including businesses and city spaces, have been certified.
DePalma holds monthly environmental educational
classes at the Island City Park Preserve to promote various
aspects of the NatureScape program. Recent classes focused
on topics like "Birds and Butterflies" and how to attract
them with colorful plants. Another was "Native Plants" and
the wide variety available to use in landscaping to reduce
water consumption while providing an attractive appear-
ance.
The Wilton Manors Business Association has been urg-
ing its members to look at their own commercial properties
to consider how they can be more environmentally sensitive.
"Businesses and individual property owners can save
considerable amounts of money on water bills if they alter
their outdoor landscaping to native plants requiring minimal
watering," DePalma said. "It just takes a little effort, a little
creativity and concern for our communities."

Less trash could mean more people are keeping waterways clean


By WILLIAM R. HAWKINS
Waterfront News Writer
Less trash means more people are being environmental-
ly responsible, according to sponsors of the 28th Annual
Waterway Cleanup held in March.
In the last three years, the amount of trash collected at
the event has steadily decreased.
"A reduction in what we collected means the long years
of work to educate people not to use our waterways as dump-
ing grounds is finally paying off," said Gordon Connell,
director of association services of the Marine Industries
Association of South Florida, sponsors of the cleanup.
More than 2,000 Broward County volunteers, some
walking along shorelines and others in 500 boats, collected
more than 50 tons of trash at 31 sites around the county dur-
ing the March 12 cleanup.
Last year, more than 55 tons were pulled from nearly
300 miles of waterway. That figure was three tons less than
the 58 tons collected in 2004, and five tons less than the 60
tons collected in 2003.
"The amount collected is going down every year
because people are getting the message," said Broward
County Mayor Kristin Jacobs, who proclaimed 2005 as
"Year of the Environment."
While people of all ages participated in the cleanup,
the focus this year was on youth. More than 200 Girl
Scouts were involved, many receiving badges for their vol-
unteer effort.

Melanie Daily, MIASF's events coordinator, announced
that Margarita Zeas and Gabriel Martinez, both of Fort
Lauderdale, were winners of the contest.
Margarita, 12, is a sixth grade student at New River
Middle School where students were asked to write a short
story about clean waterways. Her winning entry, which took
her two days to write and focused on the concern that pollut-
ed waterways hurt marine life, will be created into a coloring
book. She plans a career in marine biology.
Gabriel, 15, a South Broward High School ninth grader,
took nine hours to complete his essay. Using Internet
resources, he detailed causes of water pollution and resolu-
tions. His winning essay will be published in an upcoming
MIASF newsletter. Gabriel plans a career as a zoologist.
"This was the first time we tried the writing project and
we're thrilled with the response," Daily said.
There were 12 short stories and 13 essays submitted. The
winners were given special awards at the cleanup kickoff cel-
ebration at Pier 17 Marina and Yacht Club along the New
River in Fort Lauderdale.
Businesses and civic organizations that served as spon-
sors were honored at the event's Trash Bash held in Snyder
Park following the cleanup.

Prize money keeps growing in season's hottest fishing tournament

when they're mountainous.
In fishing, anything can happen as easily as nothing.
This year, in the two-day Bob Lewis Tournament in early
March, a fleet of 76 boats with 316 contestants scored 393
sailfish releases apparently an all-time record for Miami
tournaments, and an average of 1.24 fish per person.
Good bite or bad, the big one's prize money keeps grow-
ing. Last year, the crew of Down & Durty, led by captain
Matty Tambor, shared $61,412.50 in cash for winning and
running up in eight categories, some of them just for trophies.
There are so many sub-contests wrapped up in this tour-
nament that it's hard to keep track of the prizes. They cover
the by-catch of dolphin, kingfish, wahoo and tuna as well as
the sailfish that are the primary target.

Other than that, $39,100 in cash
prizes are being offered this year
in five divisions requiring only the
tournament's basic entry fee of
$200 per boat and $260 per person.

"Remember last year we added a $5,000 prize for the
heaviest dolphin? This year there's another $5,000 for the
heaviest kingfish, sponsored by Blanchard Machinery,"
Layne said. Blanchard leases compressors and generators.
"And the Libertad trophy? Last year it was $10,000.This
year it's $30,000."
The Libertad award is the brainstorm of Bob Christof,
operator of the Miami Beach Marina. Until now, it's been
awarded to the team with the most sailfish releases in three
tournaments the Miami, the Bob Lewis and Florida
Billfish Masters with the prize posted by Jud Shelley of
Shelley Realty in South Miami.
This year the Cocoplum Yacht Club tournament has
been added to that mix and Christof has added cash to the
prize, Layne says. How Christof and Shelley split the

Vasquez's Team Freedom won another for $42,500.
A funfish division covers the bycatch kingfish,
wahoo, dolphin and tuna, which usually are found in sailfish-
ing waters. Last year prizes in that division paid $11,750.
In all, the prize money crested above $170,000, a fig-
ure likely to be exceeded this time even if nobody wins
that million.

Baynanza: Tons of trash and fun envirntalAPRIL 2005


Baynanza: Tons of trash and fun environmental activities


County. "We need younger and older people and everybody
in the community to make the connection that everything
that is dumped in other areas eventually is going to end up
in the bay."
Calle works for DERM, the Miami-Dade Department
of Environmental Resources Management. His own title is
long, too: Chief of the office of Sustainable Environment
and Education. He has been working on Baynanza and the
cleanup in other capacities for most of its 23-year history.
And he's noticed that every year the volunteers gather
as much junk as they did the year before, and thought about
how much they have to leave behind. After all, they only do
it for three hours, 9 a.m. to noon about as long as organiz-
ers feel the volunteers, a large portion of them kids, can sus-
tain the effort. It gets hot out there.
In recent years, organizers had been reporting the annu-
al collection at 19 tons part of it weighed, part estimated.
Now they're saying 24 tons, because last year's load from
the bay's islands was more accurately recorded.
"We've been able to measure better because we're get-
ting better numbers from the solid waste disposal system,"
Calle says.
Accuracy is good, and it's good to know that the volun-
teers collect 20 percent more trash than anyone thought, but
having to infer they'd find twice as much if they went back
for the rest of the day is bad.
Bad, too, that 8,000 volunteers typically the peak
number, given good weather aren't even enough.
Even worse: The amount of trash probably hasn't
diminished much over the years.
"It's an indication that we really need to do a lot more
education; we really need to get the message out there to the
people," Calle says.
People who live in waterfront communities presumably
know the message already, for the litter drifts by their
homes. Taking their boats in and out at idle speed, they can't
miss seeing it ride the tide.
Same goes for trailer boaters. Catch the incoming tide
at your fiearest launching ramp and watch the junk arriving.
If there are mangroves close by, it usually isn't hard to find
some caught in the roots.
If those sights spoil your day on the water, you're just
who Calle and his preparation crew 130-plus-DERM staff
members, many of whom volunteer themselves on cleanup
day, the agency says are trying to recruit.
For all their success in recruiting volunteers afoot, it's
often a struggle to organize enough people with boats to
ferry people to the 16 islands in the cleanup. It's not only
inefficient, but impolite as well, to have a crowd of volun-
teers standing around a marina waiting for a ride.
Boats are needed at five of the 28 cleanup sites: Florida
International University North, Pelican Harbor, Shake-a-
Leg, Momingside Park and Island View.
Boats should be in the 16-25-foot range. A few of the
islands have water deep enough for a V or semi-V hull, but


most are on grass flats where a shallow draft is more suit-
able. Volunteers will not have to ferry trash, just people.
This year there's a new incentive a raffle for two
annual launching passes, good in every Dade County park.
The first 60 boaters to sign up will be eligible.
Those passes cost $120 a year. If you use the ramps
more than 15 times a year at $8 per launch, the pass is a bar-
gain even if you have to buy it.

Georgia island's gentile charms make for a calm getaway


By TERRY CONWAY
Waterfront News Writer
The sun appears on the horizon, blazing a golden path
across the Atlantic toward Georgia's great barrier islands.
They sit like sentinels protecting the mainland and shelter-
ing the Intracoastal Waterway.
A long thin strand of surprising wildness, Cumberland
Island is both the largest (40,000 acres) and the southern-
most of the barrier islands.
On its eastern side, white sand beaches rise to dunes
that give way to a forest of magnolias, oaks, palmettos and
pines. The relatively flat island that measures three miles
wide by eighteen miles long, limits visitation to 300 people
per day. A six-month advance reservation to gain access to
the island is required.
Established as a national seashore in 1972, most people
who come are campers or day visitors. A 45-minute ferry
ride from St. Marys, Ga. provides the only access.
The northern half of Cumberland Island includes
8,840 acres of designated wilderness and serves as sanctu-
ary to the threatened loggerhead sea turtle, which can
weigh up to 350 pounds.
Deeper in the forests you may catch a glimpse of the
island's numerous whitetail deer, wild stallions, mares, and
hogs. These species are said to be feral, meaning that their
ancestors were domesticated animals that have now
returned to their original wild state.
In 1880 Thomas Carnegie (younger brother of Andrew)
bought most of Cumberland and built the largest mansion
on the island. The 59-room Scottish castle with turrets
boasted a pool house, 40 outbuildings, a golf course, acres
of manicured gardens and a squash court. It was abandoned
in the 1920s and burned down in 1959.
Much of the haunting stone ruins have been usurped by
the forest's overgrowth, but several other buildings remain
including the Plum Orchard and the Grayfield mansions,
built in 1900. Greyfield was opened as an inn in the 1960s.
You can walk the grounds, have a gourmet picnic under the
oaks, and dine by candlelight as the sun is setting.
Nearby, the First African Baptist church was the clan-

destine site of John F Kennedy Jr. and Carolyn Bessette's
wedding in 1996. The tiny church with only eleven pews,
each handmade, sits near the original emancipated slave set-
tlement by Burbank Point.
After a day of hiking around Cumberland Island, you
might be in need of some cool refreshments back at St.
Marys. The Riverside Cafe is conveniently located across
the street from the ferry, and the balcony affords a striking
view of the marina.

Lang's is a popular seafood
restaurant and full service marina
that can accommodate boats
ranging from a luxury cruise liner
to a small fishing boat.

A small historic village, St. Marys remains one of
Georgia's best-kept secrets, a destination rich in history, nat-
ural beauty and southern hospitality.
The Riverview Hotel, built in 1916, is a splendid place
to stay, plus there are several bed-and-breakfast inns located

from a luxury cruise liner to a small fishing boat. A concrete
floating dock is on site and services such as fuel, provisions,
and shower facilities are available.
History is reflected in the antebellum grandeur of
Orange Hall, the Toonerville Trolley, Oak Grove Cemetery
and venerable churches. Orange Hall, a Greek Revival man-
sion built in 1829, houses the town's welcome center and
museum.
Old downtown's shaded streets lead to an array of
quaint shops, restored antebellum-style homes and a won-
derful bookstore. The charms of this gentle town are tough
to resist.

Broward Marine Resource Guide 2005


Hard core boaters need certain
information where, for example,
to renew your fishing license ... how

... a specific day's tide tables, or the
name of a restaurant that can accom-
modate your 32-foot cabin cruiser.
The Waterfront News Marine
Resource Guide, in this handy pull-
out format, has been designed to
make your marine life a little easier.
The following pages categorize
names, and websites when applica-
ble of private and governmental
agencies related to boating, fishing
and nautical recreation in general.
