Dear Editor,
Please note the following correction on
behalf of my client,Santa Barbara Plantation.
In the article from the December 2007 issue
by Els Kroon under "New Developments,"
please correct "27-acre site" to read "1,500-
acre site." Excellent piece otherwise, and
thank you so much for taking interest in our
development. We'll brief you on details as
development continues.

MATTHEW EANDI
Senior Account Executive
Pearson Public Relations, Florida

Editor's Note We appreciate Mr. Eandi's
e-mail regarding this Curacao project. Our
writer, Els Kroon, points out that various
published reports on the Hyatt and its web
site mention only 27 acres; but apparently the
total Santa Barbara development including
golf course and marina will encompass 1500
acres. We look forward to giving our readers
continuing updates.


Dear Editor,
I just found your magazine online, and like
its style and content. My sailboat is based
on the Great Lakes, but I formerly cruised
the Bahamas, and chartered in the BVI's last
year, so I will be subscribing to All at Sea!
Reading your back number for June 2007,
the article by Carol Bareuther,"Lost Horizon
II and James Dobbs," really caught my eye,
as I sailed extensively with and against
James when he and I were based in Nassau,
about 30 years ago! I've lost touch with
him and did not know where he was until I
read your article. I'd like to contact him. Do
you have an address where I could try and
reach him? If you could help, it would be
really appreciated.

JOHN W. BUFTON

Editor's note We were glad to forward
Mr. Bufton's letter to James Dobbs


Dear Editor,
I was approached by the St. Thomas
Fishermen's Association and asked to
provide expert testimony...over some
misinformation contained in the article
"So...What Fish Carry Ciguatera?" which
appeared in your January 2008 issue.
As regards my expertise on the subject


of Ciguatera, I am the current and founding
director of the U.S. Virgin Islands Division
of Fish and Wildlife. I first started doing
fishery research in the Virgin Islands in
1971 following completion of my Ph.D. at
the University of Hawaii where Ciguatera
research was well underway prior to my
arrival there in 1967. In 1973 I helped set up
a marine laboratory at the Bitter End with
the University of Mississippi which studied
ciguatera. Additionally, I have two published
papers on the subject, one of which is
still cited in the United Nations Food and
Agriculture Organization FISHBASE data
base as a definitive reference on Ciguatera
in the Caribbean.
What the fishermen object to is the
characterization of the Yellowtail Snapper
(Ocyurus chrysurus) as a species which
poses a significant risk of poisoning. Yellow
tail is a species of major import to Virgin
Islands fishermen. In 2006, nearly 120,000
Ibs. of yellowtail were landed from the
St. Thomas/St. John shelf and, to my
knowledge, not one of them poisoned
anyone with Ciguatera. This is not to say
that no one ate a spoiled yellowtail and got
sick from food poisoning. Far from being a
risky species, Yellowtail is one of the very
safest species available and an important
source of income for local fishermen.
The supposed focus of the article was
to inform your readership of the risk from
Ciguatera and howto avoid it. Several points
were missed which should be emphasized.
First of these is that local fishermen know
more about which fish and which areas
pose risk. The best source of information
comes not from magazine articles but from
the fishermen themselves.
They have a long history with this
subject, and would never take a chance with
their customers as they rely on customer
loyalty for their livelihoods. Local fishermen
discard species because of the risk to their
customers. For example, in a year long 2006
study of by catch releases carried out by the
St. Thomas Fishermen's Association under
a NOAA grant from the MARFIN program,
Schoolmaster snappers (Lutjanus apodus)
which were not listed in the article, were
the third most frequently discarded species.
Schoolmaster snappers (known locally as
"dogteeth"snappers) are an excellent eating
species but pose a high risk of poisoning
on the St. Thomas/St. John shelf. On St.
Croix, where ciguatera is absent, they are
readily consumed. There are other examples


12 ALLATSEA.NET MARCH 2008


where fishermen protect the consumer in
this way.
The other point which I don't think was
adequately presented is the geography of
risk. In the 1984 paper, I presented the
distribution of Ciguatera throughout the
region. During the late 1970s, St. Croix,
which does not have the poison on its
shelf, suffered some significant outbreaks.
It turned out that these came from Puerto
Rican boats that were fishing the Saba bank
and the area between Saba and St. Barths.
They stopped in St. Croix to sell some
of their catch. This is a well known high
risk area.
In the US Virgin Islands, the epicenter of
ciguatera seems to be in the area south of
Norman Island up to the Anegada Reef. I
once poisoned seven visitors with a kingfish
from the shelf south of Virgin Gorda. As one
proceeds to the west, risk decreases. In the
STFA study, fishermen discarded the high
value Mutton Snapper, (Lutjanus analis) that
were caught on the south shelf near to the
USVI/BVI border. Discards ceased in the
areas as one proceeds west on the south of
the St. Thomas shelf.
The North shelf seems to be virtually
devoid of fish poisoning. Species which
are considered risky on the south such as
the bar jack (Caranx ruber) are caught in
significant quantities from the north and
sold without incident. High risk species
such as Barracuda, Dog and Schoolmaster
snappers, Amberjacks and Horse eye jacks
should still be avoided on the north.
My point is this, before publishing an
article that can affect the livelihoods of local
fishermen, both your magazine and the
author, should do a better job of checking
their facts. I felt the article basically gave the
impression that visiting yachtsmen were
on their own when it came to information
about Ciguatera except for the "expertise"
provided by Ms. Dayhuff
This is simply not true, the Hawaii project
has been on-going for nearly halfa century,
my own papers have been out there for
a quarter of a century. I sure that there
are many more, should someone want to
check. Google lists 713,000 hits when you
type in Ciguatera.
On a practical sense though, I suggest
the following: Ask local fishermen what
species are safe and if there are areas which
pose a risk. Avoid species from the top of
the food chain since the toxin concen-
trates up the food chain. If you are really

concerned, buy test kits. They are expensive
(about $10 per test)
But above all, don't believe everything
you read in popular magazines. Caribbean
seafood, particularly when cooked by
Caribbean chefs, is one of life's great
pleasures. It would be a shame to let
misinformation and paranoia deny you
that pleasure.

DAVID A. OLSEN, PH.D.
Director
Division of Fish and Wildlife
Department of Planning and
Natural Resources
St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands



Editor's note: Thank you Dr. Olsen for
your feedback.
We stand corrected regarding Yellowtail
Snapper. As per Dr. Donald M. Anderson, Sr.
Scientist & Coastal Ocean Institute Director,


Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution and
his sources within the USVI the classification
of Yellowtail Snapper as a ciguateric fish
is incorrect.
We in addition agree with Dr. Olsen's
point with local knowledge and encourage
our readers to ask. In the second article,
'Ciguatera: Brass Eating Fish Part II,' one of
the recommendations for obtaining safe fish
states: "In the meantime, recommendations
include knowing from where and by whom the
fish are taken. Local fishermen whose livelihood
depends upon providing safe, quality fish have
knowledge of where, when, and what species
offish to catch based on history.
Please be aware of the issue however,
according to the National Institute of
Environmental Health Sciences, located at the
University of Miami, "The most commonly
reported marine toxin disease in the world is
Ciguatera, associated with consumption of
contaminated reef fish such as barracuda,
grouper.... Under-diagnosis and under-


reporting (especially in endemic areas such
as the Caribbean) make it difficult to know
the true worldwide incidence of the Marine
Toxin Diseases. At least 50,000 people per year
who live in or visit tropical and subtropical
areas suffer from Ciguatera worldwide. For
example, CDC and others estimate that only
2-10% of Ciguatera cases are actually reported
in the United States." Residents and visitors
of the island nations in the Caribbean and
in other countries located in the tropics and
sub-tropics around the world would do well
to encourage their local health departments
and medical providers to provide accurate
reporting of Ciguatera cases.
Accurate reporting would provide
fishermen an extra measure of security as well
as providing consumers with unquestionably
safe fish. And, education of the public and
medical providers on the signs and symptoms
of Ciguatera could prevent needless suffering
and, perhaps, a lifetime of after-effects. -!

THE HEAD
Here, you want to kill germs, deodorize, and freshen. The following oils are inexpensive
antiseptics and bacteria-busters; some are also anti-fungal and anti-viral: cinnamon,
clove, eucalyptus, grapefruit, lavender, lemon, lime, pine and thyme.
After washing with soap and water, wipe down the surfaces with one of the above
essential oils or a blend of oils. The oils also inhibit bacterial growth and make the
room smell pleasant. Other methods to deodorize here are to spray the room or put
a couple of drops of oil on the tube inside a toilet paper roll.

WOOD SURFACES:
Wash wood surfaces with natural liquid soap and water, paying special attention to
hand grips, sticky with dirt and sweat. Use a bit of natural furniture oil on a damp cloth
and a couple of drops of the essential oil that matches your mood and wipe wood
surfaces. Here are some ideas for single oils for various areas:

Fresh scents for any area: lavender, rosemary, bergamot, pine, basil or
any fruit oil.
Floral scent for common areas: geranium, rose, rose Maroc, petitgraine.
Romantic oils to use sparingly in cabin/bedroom: Palma Rosa,
ylang ylang, clary-sage, r' ,n I i ..

Learn how to repel moths, mice and ants, sweeten your laundry, store clothing
and linens worry-free, make windows, mirrors and brass sparkle, and get rid of musty
smells in dry lockers and storage lockers. And those running shoes?...whew! We can
fix those too......with essential oils. i

Poverty and the Radar Screen of Life


BY CAP'N FATTY GOODLANDER, COPYRIGHT 2008

A funny thing happened to me recently:
I had too much money! I know, I know,
this is the least likely'bad'thing which
you'd expect to happen to a penniless
sea gypsy such as myself... but that's
how life is, always throwing curves. And
it wasn't that I earned more money, just
that I spent less.


You see, Micronesia doesn't offer much in
the way of shopping opportunities. They are,
truly, micro. Yes, micro is the operative word
here: they have micro-muscles, exert micro-
efforts...all planned with their micro-brains.
So there isn't much to buy. And people will
give you anything you point at-even their
spouses-so spending becomes somewhat
of a challenge.
Mostly what they have here in the nor'-
west Pacific is stuff left over from WWII which,
alas, doesn't include ATM machines. (What
were the Allies thinking-not bringing ATM
machines...stupid, eh?)
Anyway, after three months of cruising
Micronesia, we pulled into a port with an
Internet connection and (as soon as I got
up-to-speed on porn) I checked my bank
accounts...wow, I was rich!
Immediately, I sensed a problem. You


see, my wife likes to see a dentist once a
year, wear shoes, buy soap...in essence, I
realized that if I didn't loot my bank account,
she certainly would...on useless stuff like
prescription eyeglasses, food, and...well,
female stuff!
The problem isn't so much that she
spends money but rather that she's addicted
to it. I mean, she is insatiable! Take food, for
example: if you feed her breakfast, she
wants lunch. You give THAT meal to her,
damn-she's already planning on eating
dinner... and this is all-in-the-same-day!
Now, in Micronesia there are (sort of)
USPS post offices. I mean, they're pretty
good... only about half the stuff gets stolen
as it passes through Guam. So I figured this
was a good place to have stuff shipped in.
So I went to the post office and began to
copy down the address written in large,


Cap'n Fatty Goodlander lives aboard
the Wild Card, with his wife Carolyn,
and cruises throughout the world. He

"Seadogs, Clowns and Gypsies", and "The
Collected Fat".


two-feet high letters on its entrance... when
the clerk at the front window rushed out to
caution me...as some the sorters from the
backroom did too.
"So sorry," said the clerk, "but address
is wrong!"
"The address on the post office is wrong,"
I said in amazement and, perhaps, didn't
hide my incredulity too well.
The people of Micronesia are, like
everywhere else, somewhat micro-proud.
So the clerk defended his country's honor
by saying,"...not all wrong! For instance, Zip
Code of 96943 is right, and the word 'Yap'
is spelled correct... so, mostly, it's right, sir...
it's just the other numbers and words... well,
there's a problem!"
"..then why not change the sign," I asked.
"..only sign we have," was the answer,
"and, besides, everyone here knows it's
wrong... we sent'em a letter and told'em!"
I decided to FedEx.
Then I called up Defender Industries
in New Jersey and said, "I have too much
money and want to have some fun!"
The tele-jockey at the other end wasn't
stupid. "Fun?" he asked. "Fun... hmmm.. fun...
furn... FURUNO!"
Thus I end up buying a Furuno 1623
radar for Wild Card.
Of course, there were some technical
issues I hadn't considered. For instant,
radars require electric power. This was a
problem. Between my wife's vibrator and
me (adoringly) staring into my high-wattage
light-bulb-ringed make-up mirror...well, we
don't have a lot of 12 volts left over.
"What should I do?" asked my wife. Alas,
she was in no mood to help. She obviously
wasn't terribly pleased with my recent

The radar was the worst.The axe I used to chop a hole in my
aluminum mast kept getting dull.The electric cable was too short-so
I had to run it efficiently...directly through the main cabin to the nav
station...yes, I put a 'Duck!'sign on it so really dumb people wouldn't
think it was a sort of electro-handrail.


purchase and wasn't too subtle hiding her
disgust."Kiss off!"she snarled.
Well, it WAS an idea. I mean, I'd been to
Trinidad many times and had drunkenly
stumbled passed the little store-front
window where they assembled the units...
and, wasn't it the only Caribbean company
with enough balls to brazenly put the word
'stupid'right in their name? ...Yes, I'd order a
KISS (Keep It Simple, Stupid) wind generator
from Doug Billings at Kiss Energy Systems
in Chaguaramas, Trinidad-and solve my
electrical needs forever!
Needless to say, the installations of both
of these units weren't easy.
I'm sort of clumsy.
The only tool I regularly play with
is my own.
The radar was the worst. The axe I used
to chop a hole in my aluminum mast
kept getting dull. The electric cable was
too short-so I had to run it efficiently...
directly through the main cabin to the nav
station...yes, I put a'Duck!'sign on it so really
dumb people wouldn't think it was a sort
of electro-handrail.
Now this is a modern radar. I grew up
aboard in the 1950s with an old-fashioned
one... with a long black hood to block out
light.Yes, theywere huge and cumbersome...
but, hey, they were way-cool, too! I mean,
put a certain type of cigarette in one of'em
and, hey, you could see actual vivid colors
on a b&w screen!
And, it was a convenient place to throw-
up into... if you didn't like the guy on the
following watch!
But this new unit is as small as my talent...
or, very small as my wife likes to point out.
The main reason I wanted it was because
of its 'watchmen' and 'guard' features.
Basically, the unit mostly sleeps (like me) but
occasionally wakes up and peeks (unlike
me). This gives me a lot of confidence...so
much so, in fact, that when a recent passing
freighter hailed me on Channel 16 and said


frantically, "We're about to collide!" I just
glanced at my blank radar screen and said
smugly, "No, we're not...in fact, you're not
even there!"(Newbie hint: never set the gain
to zero!)
I was amazed how sensitive the Furuno
1623 was... once you find the proper
settings and adjustments. I can watch
my wife row ashore (alas, we can't afford
dinghy gas) to weed her taro patch-yes,
she has desperate hopes of eating in the
distant future!
The wind generator was a lot more fun
to install. Obviously the installation manual
was written by a Trini: "Put in wind," it read,
"Connect. Drink cold Caribe beer!"
Well, it wasn't quite that simple.
I think the
main mistake I made
was installing it on
such a windy day. I
mean, bolting those
blades on while the
hub spun faster and
faster... wasn't easy,
I'll tell ya!
...butsoon we had
more volts and amps
than we knew what
to do with... and, so
I had to buy one
of those 'e-meters'
as well... just to tell
how wonderfully
the wind generator
pumped out the
mega-juice. "...What's .
it say?" I asked my
wife as I connected /
the meter. "You're
right," she said in
techno-amazement,
"it does say watts!"
So there you 3-4 77[-i
have it: Wild Card,
pathetic little world-


weary yacht that she is...has a new radar and
a new Kiss wind generator to power it. And
we're dead broke.
In essence, things are back to normal.
Of course, we're still basically the same.
All this 'electro-convenience' doesn't make
us better people. We still bicker.
...stop interrupting & distracting me,"
I recently yelled at my wife when she
asked me...as I peered into our shiny new
radar...if I saw any 'famine relief' ships on
the screen. 4


Editor's note: Wild Card's next stop is the Philippines-
where Fatty and crew hope to resume their normal
cruising diet of 'dead fish & plastic-tasting water & not
much else!'

CHUCK OUT THE ANCHOR, THE MARINA'S OVER THERE
BY GARY'GA7' BROWN


here were times when y,1 i1 111.
magazines were full of wonderful stories
about anchoring but you don't see them
anymore. Perhaps the rise in the number of
Caribbean marinas has done away with the
foredeck dance. Good news for topsides and
divorce statistics-but you have to admit it's
taken some of the fun out of y i,1ii.
When I learned to sail size did matter. Even
if you had a small boat you had to have a big
anchor and a ludicrously long and heavy chain.
We had such a big anchor on the bow of our
first boat that it almost kept the ,. i. .1 iI 1 out of
the water, but we never dragged.Thirty years on,
and numerous chiropractors later, I remember
that anchor with affection.
I guess you could say my education began
when we arrived in Virgin Gorda. Unable to afford
the marina fees, we anchored outside, when up
sailed a beautiful charter boat that dropped the
hook next to us."Great, perfect maneuver,"thinks
I until, without lowering the mainsail, the entire


crew jumped into the 1iih. ii, and disappeared
around the breakwater
With its mainsail sheeted flat, the boat went
berserk, charging towards us until it was ill I
up short by the anchor, then I 11I i 1, i off on
the other tack. On the fifth 'tack'and just inches
from our stern, the anchor finally came out and,
before we had managed to inflate our h ii. l, to
go to its aid, the yacht took off and sailed smartly
up the beach.
I wasn't so lucky
with the next boat I
actually made it on
board West End in
Tortola is one of the
deepest anchorages
in the islands,
but the anchoring
technique is simple:
sail up to the beach,
back off a few feet
and drop the hook.
My wife and I were
.iiiiiii naked in the
depths of the cock
pit sipping cock
tails when a splash

entertainment.
The couple on the
boat was definitely
not having a good

I took pity and told
them that they really

right up to the beach. With his wife screaming
obscenities, the skipper did exactly that and
ran into the back of us, i,.iii.i the push-pit
and ruining the I Much to the woman's
horror, I stepped off the back of our boat and
on to the foredeck of theirs. Her husband had
now ....- .11 1 what the charter company had
told him about the gear stick and, crashing
the engine in and out of forward and reverse,
rammed us up the stern again.
As I ran down their side-deck toward the
cockpit, the woman began shrieking and
accusing me of ruining her honeymoon. I was
flattered to think that seeing me naked had
ruined her honeymoon when I kicked a cleat and
my big toenail peeled back and stood straight
up. I was so angry that I never even felt it and
bent down, gripped the bloody toenail between
my 11. i yanked it off and tossed it over the
side. Blood now made the deck slippery and
when I looked, the woman had fainted.
It took 15-minutes to anchor their yacht for
them-then, amidst a hail of abuse, I dove over
the side and swam back to my own boat. Back on
board, my wife gave me a large glass of Mount
Gay and, trying not to throw up, bandaged my
big toe. Fortified and I ..I .I .I i I went back on

Entries are also pouring in for the BVI Spring Regatta & ,i, i Festival,
set for March 31 April 6 and presented by the Nanny Cay Marina.
Judy Petz, -1I i I director, says, "Our race division is .iiii, i the
entries with many returning and new boats such as Yani, a Marten
49. It is anticipated that a fleet of 20+ IC24's will be on the one
design course"
Other early entries include Mad V, Three Harkoms, Pipedream,
Northern Child, and Kick 'Em Jenny.
Petz adds, "We have a number of boats that are CSA rated and IRC
rated coming from the U.S. The BVI Spring I ii has been part of the
IRC Gulfstream series for the past three years and we welcome those
who are coming down to race the Caribbean circuit'
The regatta will again feature three well-positioned and c(, ii1 i,. ii,. i
race courses, ready for the 18 classes of boats that range from 14-foot
Lasers to 70-plus-foot sleek ocean racers.
"We will have the umpires on the IC24 course instantly ,. II I II ,. I
any situation that could .. 1 ,ii ill, result in a protest,' Petz explains.
"The umpires, almost all International Umpires, have power granted
to them by Appendix Q and the organizing authority, to impose a
two turn penalty if they witness an infraction and if the i i.ii ii
competitor chooses to wait for the umpires to rule rather than ,I, ,ii i
one penalty turn on their own.
As for on-land, "We will have a larger bar at Nanny Cay, with more
room for sailors to sit along the beach area and enjoy an assortment of
International cuisines. The band line-up will feature music playing from
noon to midnight-a perfect opportunity for dancing the evening
away under the Caribbean moon i' I ,1

COUNTDOWN TO BEIJING




MAYUMI 'MIMI' ROLLER, ST. JOHN, U.S. VIRGIN ISLANDS


BY CAROL M. BAREUTHER, RD


gpjgij 3*03


xteen-year-old Mayumi 'Mimi' Roller is part of
rising tide of women sailors who are oiIIII. I
n ,i, 1iI wake in the sport. Over the last
six years, she's grown from timid Opti sailor to
talented Laser Radial competitor ready to take
on the world at the 2008 Summer Olympics
in 1111,. i
No one, especially Roller, would have
predicted this track and trajectory. She admits
that her first ,iii i experience was scary."We all
started out on Sunfish. Even I,.. il an instructor
took me out, I got scared. The boat was too big,
too fast"
Roller quit after that but her year-older
brother, Hugo, didn't. "He kept going and he
started to do well. Call it -iii,. i rivalry, but I
began iiii i again. I said to myself, can do it
too. After that is when I fell in love with 1iii1,
practiced and practiced, and went to all the
local regattas"
Roller competed in national and international
hiii, i events as well. One of the high points
in her Optimist iiii i career came at the 2003
Orange Bowl Youth Regatta held at the Coral
Reef Yacht Club in Miami, Florida. She bested
a 52-competitor Green Fleet with a 52-point
lead for first. "My goal was to get into the top
ten. When I started ,i iii1i, all the firsts, my
confidence really went up," she explains.
"The little local IIIi i were one t'ii,,.
But, they don't compare to larger international
events,"says Roller "At these, the starts are harder,
it's tougher to keep up with the fleet. You can't
lose focus at all. If one person passes you, it
can spiral into a domino effect where they start
passing you and you get their bad air It was the
big events that really opened my eyes to the
world level of iiiii. i"
Beyond the U.S. and Caribbean, Roller
competed in Optimistchampionships in Ecuador
and Switzerland."I love the I iii. i Seeing new


places.' i new friends. It's great,' she says.
The Optimist Worlds in Switzerland
in 2005 marked a course change in Roller's
iiiu I career.
"I was sick of Optis by then,' she recalls. "My
brother kept iiiii me about Lasers. I hate to
bail and was never good at it in an Opti, so I
loved Lasers immediately. Also, it was the ii 111 I
rivalry i,,,. i again. I wanted to go out and beat
my brother"'
Roller's first ii I i i a Laser 4.7 was a
real eye-opener. "I was the only girl iiii. I 4.7s
at the time. The first time I sailed this boat in a
1 it was me and two other boys. I didn't
know the controls at all and how to get up
speed. I remember my brother c 1iiiIiI to me
across the water, IIu- i me what to loosen.
When I did, wow, it was i i ii ll m. i. Lasers
plane, Optis don't' Roller quickly moved up to a
Laser Radial.


"There weren't that many female Radial sailors,
and only two of us from the Virgin Islands that
were going to any international competitions.



THE LASER

RADIAL

The Lasei Radial is a i)popla3 one-
design, single-handed dinghy. It's a
variant of the Laser Standard, with a
shorter mast and reduced sail area,
allowing light sailors to compete
in heavy winds. Over 181,000 Laser
dinghies 4.7, Radial and Standard
are sailed in over 120 countries
worldwide. The Laser Radial was
chosen as the Olympic class for
singlehanded women starting with
the 2008 Summer Olympic Games.

tm Olympics. It was always -111. 11i.. i in the back
Sailing
Saiig of my mind, but once I was in Laser Radials, it
became e -11, 11 i,1 I real'
Roller picked up speed quickly. In 2006, she placed sixth out of 12
in a highly competitive class at the Central American Caribbean (CAC)
Games in Cartegena, Columbia."I finished first in one race, and in another
race beat Tania Elias of Mexico, who was internationally ranked,' she says.
Over the next year, Roller worked out in the gym to develop muscle
and weight.
"I knew the top women Laser Radial sailors were relatively big girls, so I
had to train as well as sail,' she says.
The next year, Roller sailed in the Pan American Games in Buenos Aires,
where winds proved problematic. "It was so shifty it was hard to predict.
One minute you're ahead. The next minute you're behind. First to last. Last
to first. It was incredible'"Win or lose, one of Roller's incredible talents has
been to remain focused and positive.
"You really have to want to win and excel. That means staying self-
motivated and not having any 1 ii1 attitudes.You just have to focus on
improving your skills. Even if you don't do as well as you would have liked,
stay positive. It you stress yourself out, you'll lose focus. It's a hard place to
get to, but easy to stay there once you're mentally there,' Roller explains.
Roller has a big job ahead of her in the next few months. She's a
senior at Antilles School in St. Thomas, taking an incredible caseload
and maintaining an A-average while applying to the top iiII.i
(..11 -i in the nation. Come March, she'll travel to New Zealand,
where she'll compete in the World Laser Radial Women's Championship
and hope for either a straight score or wild card entry into the 2008
Summer Olympics.
"New Zealand might be tough because it's windy. But iiII. is
supposed to be i.iiii air and I know I can be competitive in those
conditions. I might not be big, but iiii I isn't just about weight, it's about
tactics and techniques as well,' she says.
While looking ahead, Roller looks behind and offers this advice for
young girls .i. ii i in her footsteps: "Don't get iiI .1.11 i -. i Practice a
lot and keep at it. Guys do have pride issues, but it's so much fun to beat
the boys"' i

Catch Me



What is it like to sail in the BVI Spring Regatta on the world's
fastest ocean racer, winner of the 2005-06, round the world,
Volvo Ocean Race? For me, it rates up there as one of the most
exciting, exhilarating and fascinated sailing experiences of
a lifetime.

And, while my friends are enjoying dinner
with or without a great bottle of wine, I'm
squirreled away in some hole doing my best
to produce a press release that captures the
essence of the day for three race areas, 150 boats
and somewhere around 1,000 sailors.
Sounds like fun? No, it really is more like
work. So, it was a bit of a no brainer when
Kate Fairclough, press officer for ABNA AMRO, the
winner of the last round the world race, had a
spot available for Sunday's racing. I jumped at
the chance.
I met the boat at West End as it draws more
than 20 feet and cannot get into the channel
at Nanny Cay, home of the BVI Spring 1I11.
Even i..,. il, I have probably sailed on more
than 100 different boats during my 30 plus years
E of competitive II. 1i i 'i I out of the car and

trepidation. After all, ABN AMRO had smashed
the World ,11l.i Speed Record for distance
covered by a r .i . nill during the 05-06 Volvo
Round the World Race. I knew I was out of my
league and worried that those around me would
soon realize the same i 11. I
Somehow I managed to make it down the
dock w without ii, .. -i111 i or tripping. i Iii. im. I at
the end of the T, next to the boat, was a cast that
included the 14 professional crewmembers, five
shore support and four lucky racer-chasers (me
and the other guests). We, racer chasers, did our
best to look cool and stay out of the way. The
others were all quite busy prepping the boat,
checking each bit of rigging, which included
1- ,ii.i a man up the 103 foot mast to check
all the iiimi i aloft, the sails, deck hardware and
a instrument package that wouldn't look out of
place on the Starship Enterprise.
I ,. 11 l. i on the dock, it is impossible not to
admire ABNAMRO. The stylish Volvo 70, painted
primarily in black, green and yellow is a sleek
beauty with a flush deckand large dagger boards
which are raised and/or lowered I I 1,.1. on
the tack the boat is ,ii ,. i The deck is relatively
clean, with an open transom, running backs and
(if you can ignore 12 foot high dagger boards)
looking a bit like a Melges 24 on steroids.

on the tack. This not only increases the ability
of the boat to sail to weather (towards the wind


are all made from the highest tech fabrics, but
due to their incredible size still weigh enough
that it takes several crewmembers to move them
around the boat. The spinnaker is most likely
the i.1ii ,: sail on the boat and, at 500 square
meters or nearly 5700 square feet, weighs about
100 pounds. The mainsail, perhaps the heaviest,
weighs in the neighborhood of 300 pounds.
With all crews members focused, it took only
a few minutes to ready the boat and then we
racer chasers were herded on the boat. Once
away from the dock, it was obvious that the
crew were not on board for our entertainment.
They worked as a well-oiled machine i '11,1. I
each maneuver with speed, accuracy and a
minimum of talk as each professional knew his
job, anticipated the next step and performed
flawlessly.
As it turned out, I am proud to say that I was
given a job to perform and like the professional
crew, I too performed flawlessly. As we sailed
out from West End to the course off of Cooper
Island, I did my best to stay out of the way and
offered a few words of explanation to some of
the less experienced racer-chasers. I'm not sure
how good any of my explanations were but I
must have done a great job of staying out of
the way because I was given the task of making
sure that all the racer-chasers stayed out of the
way. In essence, while the pros tacked and
jibed the boat, I tacked and jibed the guests and
i,.. .i. ii ..'1 the day not one of us got caught
on the wrong side after a tack, found our feet
tangled in the jib sheet or managed to get our
hair caught in the running backs.
The day turned out to be a spectacular
example of why I love BVI Spring - i 1i The
sun was bright and warm, the trades blew a
consistent 20 knots, the seas flat and the Sir
Francis Drake Channel was alive with ill .. ii.
ranging from the 14 foot Lasers to Titan, a Reichel
Pugh 75' There were two races on Sunday and
each was iii,. in its own way. In the first,
we were off the I 1,i,. i line with the six other
boats in our class. The course led us around the
buoys, with relatively short legs of only about
a mile. This is when I could really see just how
good this crew was as this massive machine was
maneuvered perfectly while jibs and spinnakers
were up and down in a blink on legs that took
only five to six minutes.
At one point, we were i.11 i,.iI downwind
Sat about 22 miles per hour when Cynthia Ross,
on 30 foot J Doe, inadvertently got in our path.
i /ii... ill the pros on ABN AMRO were cool,


calm and (.. 1i I I i even from a distance, I could
see Cynthia's eyes were as big as saucers as she
screamed at her crew, "JIBE, JIBE, JIBE't Death,
disaster and I liii 11,. 'il i II were averted
as JDoejibed in the nick of time.
The second race of the day was a little less
dramatic but fun just the same. This time, the
race committee chose to send the fleet on an
abbreviated tour of the south barrier islands. The
course was one big loop with long legs and ABN
AMRO had a chance to stretch her legs. Titan,
our archrival in Division A, quickly started to fall
behind and it was not long before it was obvious
ABNAMRO had handily won.
It would be nice to be able to report that it
was my extraordinary performance on Sunday
that led ABNAMRO to the division victory in the
2007 BVI Spring - i ii ii,. .,,, Iil we did win
both races on Sunday, ABNAMRO had won the
previous six races sailed and thus, by Sunday,
was the easy favorite to win. -i 1ii even for

BERT KILBRIDE:

DIVING LEGEND OF THE BRITISH VIRGIN ISLANDS

MARCH 8, 1914 JANUARY 8, 2008


BY JULIAN PUTLEY


ert ill -.-. 1 was once described by Sports Illustrated as I. i1.- to
Caribbean scuba ii 11 i as the 11. i Brothers were to aviation" or,
and I think Bert would have liked this one better, "what Harley and
Davidson were to the Hell's Angels"
ill i i. I started scuba ii 11. i in 1948 and first came to the British Virgin
Islands in the late 1950s. In 1963 he built Drake's Anchorage on Mosquito
Island, Virgin Gorda and founded iII 11. i UnderwaterTours.The ii.. i I
year he became a certified ii ii i instructor.
In those early il ii,. i days, Bert became keenly interested in wreck
ii ii. i since Anegada's treacherous Horseshoe Reef, a graveyard of ships,
was right on his doorstep. In 1967 the Royal Ontario Museum began an
archaeological project "Virginquest," in which iiii.i. i participated, that
located 65 shipwrecks.
During the next 12 years, Bert discovered a further 26 wrecks and
endeavoured to determine their time period by artifact identification. Most
of these were discovered whilst he was towed slowly behind a boat using
mask, fins and snorkel. In 1967 he was named"Receiver ofWrecks" by Queen
Elizabeth. This title ,li. I him to document and determine authenticity,
if possible, of all British Virgin Island wrecks for HM government and make
sure they were not desecrated.
In 1969 a project named Tektite was sponsored by NASA (National
Aeronautics and Space Administration) and involved a completely self
contained and pressurised underwater module. It was inhabited by four
aquanauts at a depth of 50ft. to conduct experiments, among them
the tagging of several crustaceans and lobsters for future observation.
When the 60 day immersion was up, the aquanauts emerged and their
experiments were hailed as a success.
ill 11i. i hotel at Mosquito Island was chosen for the aquanauts to
recuperate and one evening, lobster was on the menu. To the astonishment
of one of the aquanauts, '-1. .1 ,. I l. i from the shell of a succulent lobster tail
was one of their tags. After a heated discussion on whether a lobster would
be likely to travel over 30 miles of difficult underwater terrain in a couple of
weeks, Bert could no longer keep a straight face and admitted his ruse in
collusion with one of the team.
ill -.1 -i was featured in many films and TV programmes 1 1i Il.h.i
"Shipwrecks of Anegada" by CBS, "People of the Sea" by Jean Michel
Cousteau, and"Treasure H, I'iIn. I i. ABC news 20/20 as well as i -' i
Underwater i. i- I, ,i1 .i, for Kodak filmed by Smokey Roberts and Stan
Waterman. He was also featured prominently in the .i i 1 iI i I Treasure"
by Phillip Z.Trupp.
Bert was chosen as dive master and lecturer for the i. 11. i... .Cousteau
Society's "Project Ocean Search" held annually in the BVI from 1980 until
the late 1990s, and he was selected as dive master for the "Sea Space
Symposium" in 1984.
Oneof ill ii-i greatest contributions toh ii .-i was the"resort course."
He designed its format in the 1960s and strove to convince maior certification


.- agencies to implement it in their
S programmes, accomplished in
the late 1970s with PADI. In the
1980s i11.,,.i dive operation
was c. i, '' 1 ,. I over 2,000 resort
courses per year with a large
percentage of those students
l going on to become certified
*r scuba divers.
Of course, we must not
s forget "The Deep," a motion
picture filmed partly in the BVI
on location at the wreck of The
Rhone. Bert was instrumental in
.... I ll., the film company to
Come and shoot here.
The crowning achievement
of ill ....I decades of scuba

was awarded the 11.11...
NOGI award for sports/ education won by" I '. i. ii.ii.I individuals who
have exemplified themselves as leaders and contributors in the areas
of art, science, sports/education and iil ,iii. i, i, .I service to our world
underwater".With this .i 111i ii award ill ii-.I -joined ranks with notables
such as Jacques Cousteau, Lloyd Bridges and Mel Fisher
By the 1980s Bert had moved his home and his dive operation to Saba
Rock, a small island of less than an acre, adjacent to the Bitter End in Virgin
Gorda Sound. In 1987 he married his fifth wife, Gayla and they set up home
on 'The Rock' While teaching his stepson how to free-dive and snorkel, he
invented a unique safety device for snorkelers patented in 1994.
In 1990 the famous dive operation was sold and moved across to the
Bitter End, under new ownership, and the ll 11. i finally enjoyed a bit of
peace and quiet. But inquisitive tourists were always tying up to their dock
or wandering over the island so Bert threw his hands in the air in despair
and adopted the policy,"if you can't beat'em join 'em'
With Gayla as the driving force, "The Pirate's Pub"came into being. The
place developed a personality not unlike Bert's-somewhat wild, salt
stained, and full of character The old clan leader would often sit in the
bar, adorned with a gold earring and chains i1 11.. 111. I Spanish doubloons,
i 11,. i the tourists with sea stories and tales of buried treasure. The bar
became so famous that it took the front cover spot in David Thrasher's "Bars
of the BVI'
In 1997, Saba Rock was sold and Bert and Gayla moved to Florida. The
new owner dedicated a small museum to Bert where many of the artifacts
he found in all those years of ii ii. I are on display.
There will be a celebration of Bert ill -i. I life at Saba Rock in March.-&

and it was an exciting start in Road 5th ThreeHarkoms-Christopher Lloyd DNF

The boats headed off across the Channel
on their way to round Dead Chest to starboard.
Christopher Lloyd's Three Harkoms, with the
Governor on board as part of the crew, quickly
took the lead and was first round to set their
new spinnaker. Hot on the heels was Dave West's
Chippewa, a Melges 32, with some of the top BVI
racers on board. The boats then raced past Peter
Island and rounded the island to leave Norman
Island to Starboard.
Unfortunately just off Norman Island, Three
Harkoms had some gear failure and had to
retire from the race. Chippewa was first round
the backside of Norman Island, however due
to some problems with a halyard, they were I, I I, ,, ......' ..i iI, i .. I

HALYARD CHALLENGE


Taken Up by Pipe Dream

S shaking off the iI a I I effects of NewYear's N" 1
Eve hangovers, the crew of Pipe Dream, Peter
Haycraft's Sirena 38, taught a lesson in boat E!ll
I.. 1111, I to young and old alike on Saturday,
January 5.The Halyard CI i ill i I regatta, sponsored by
Latitude 18 and organised by the Royal BVI Yacht Club,
saw the blue and white sloop take line and handicap
honours in both races in a varied fleet ranging from a
team of BVI's hottest youth sailors to one of the region's
most respected senior yachtsmen.
If you wondered why a bunch of ll ... spent
most of Saturday buzzing to and fro across the entrance
to Road Harbour without seeming to have any fixed
destination in mind, they were c ,i Iii for glory,
bragging rights and the generous haul of loot provided
by Latitude 18 as prizes.
Haycraft, assisted by son Chris and an experienced
crew, was able to place the vessel in good position
at both starts, at full speed and i .I i i in the right
direction to lead from start to finish. They were able to
take advantage of their deeper draft and size to head
out into the strong easterly breeze running down the
Sir Francis Drake Channel on the way upwind to the
I I 1 1111 i 1. I mark off Brandywine Bay, while the smaller
boats sought more sheltered waters inshore. They
were also able to handle their spinnaker well on the
downwind legs, i1 Ii. ii I managing an astonishingly
fast douse, repack and reset in the final race which
finished with several changes of direction in a short
space of time.
Second and third were fought out between two
identical IC-24 class yachts, class heavyweight Andrew.
Waters in Conchquerer taking on Alec Anderson's youth -
team aboard Intac, with Waters coming out ahead to
finish second. In the battle to avoid last place (DFL in

the maidens aboard Guy Eldridge's First 1 OR Luxury Girl blushingly declined
to hoist their spinnaker but were still able to eke out ahead of Dr Robin

ust 10 boats made it to the start of the 3rd St Maarten-St
Martin Classic Yacht Regatta for what turned out to be a
thinned down event where the on-the-water racing took
center stage. Gone was the lavish banquet of 2005. Absent
was the local boat racing of 2006. Present and correct, however,
was a satisfying melange of Classic yachts crewed by genuine
enthusiasts.
Racing was divided into three classes: Vintage, Classic and Classic Look.
In the first, two-time winner Charm III from i1, ii11 i enjoyed a one-sided
contest against fellow schooner Passaat. This time round, Charm III skipper
Richard West had favored youth over experience by *I .. .. h -, i three teen
age crew from the, 1i. 1ii. i iii,. i Association: Kenny Richards (13), Noah
Gumbs (12) and Starlin Rosario (13).
In the Classic Look Class, local boat Synergy was equally comfortable
against Papillon from the US.
The stiffest competition was in the Classic Class, where last year's star
Kate from St Kitts would go up against a fleet that included Lone Fox and
the beautiful Raindancer. The latter, a 76-foot staysail schooner, was virtually
rebuilt after Hurricane Ivan by owner John Whitsett from San Francisco. Her
impeccable Burmese Teak deck, Sitka Spruce masts and traditional rig are
testament to an 18-month refit. Whitsett, who ,. ..'i. iI, sports a tattoo of a
pig on his left foot, approached the racing with the bravado of a man for
whom Neptune's empire held no fear.
Not i i, i,.n i went to plan: Radha in the Classic class was struck by
illness which forced her withdrawal from all but the first day's racing, while
Kate's owner Philip Walwyn was forced to take her home on Sunday morn
ing due to a shortage of crew. Once racing did get underway on Sunday, it
was beneath 1 i I leaden skies and on water the color of Cornish slate.
Squally but breezy, conditions seemed strangely incongruous with these
elegant beauties.
Nevertheless, Lone Fox's primed crew brought her home in style; first
over the line but second yet again on corrected time to the nippy 37'Tiger
VMaru, who would have won .i 1Ill had it not been for an errant sixth place
in the first race. Charm Ill's magic, then, was broken: there would be no third
consecutive victory. C.. ,.' 111111i ii.i i 1 I,..i -i, to organizer Jan Roosens
and team, who continue to bring these stunning boats to the region.

TENTH ANNIVERSARY for W-Class Racing Yachts

BY ELLEN LAMPERT-GREAUX | PHOTOS BY ROSEMOND GREAUX


J".


Company in Newport, Rhode Island, United
States, is somewhat of a purist when it comes
to illiiI In December, his 76' beauty, Wild
Horses, sailed in the New Years Eve i1 i in Saint Barth,
where the yacht is i ii. I.I the winter in the Port of
Gustavia. In fact, 2008 marks the 10th anniversary for Wild
Horses, and its sister yacht, White Wings, which is currently in
a boatyard in Newport.
Designed by the late naval architect, boat builder and
sailor, Joel White-whose name lends the W to W Class-these yachts are modern classics built with
contemporary materials and technology, yet intended to evoke classic yachts of the eras past. As
Tofias says, "They represent the soul of the future and the spirit of the past"' In summing up the design
concept, he notes, "The vision that propelled me to develop these inspiring vessels was the ideal to
compete in big, identical boats with identical equipment so that at the end of an i II I. close and
competitive race, the best sailor wins"
In terms of identical boats, Wild Horses and White Wings race frequently against each other, ill. I
the captains to duel skillfully to the finish line."They have raced against each other at least 400 times in
ten years,' says Tofias. Wild Horses (built at Brooklin Boatyard in Maine, which is run by Joel's son, Steve
White) was launched on June 23, 1998 and White Wings (also built in Maine at Rockport Marine) hit the
water a few months later on September 23, 1998.
"We have plans for similar yachts at 37-feet, 62-feet, 105-feet, 130-feet, and 160-feet," says Tofias.
In the 46-foot class, he

A true wooden boat aficionado, Tofias
recently bought Jim Steele's Maine Peapod boat
company, which makes charming 13.5'double

up in Newton, MA, and spent summers on
Cape Cod," explains Tofias about his love for

,l ...1 and my interest grew from a hobbytoa
full-time business"
With a large W I .i I ,,.i on the mast of
Wild Horses in the trade winds of Saint Barth,
Joel White-who passed away at the age of
66 in December 1997, a few months before
the first W-Class boat was christened-is

"He is watching us all the time,"says Tofias."He
is spiritually on the boat every day' -

in Falmouth Harbour, 1ii., i I was called to Government House in St John's,
to be knighted by the First Lady of,, i~ I. I who holds the title of Governor
General. To say that Judy and I were iii honoured to be invited there
for this ceremony would be ., i ii. I it very mildly indeed!
Back in the 1960s, Sir Hugh was the skipper of Captain Bruno Brown's
pretty little clipper bowed yacht Sagittarius and, along with a dozen or so
mainly El ili 11 retired service officers, was responsible for running the then
small charter fleet out of El h iii Ii Harbour, i1.i I, for Commander Vernon
Nicholson R.N. Rt. Sir Hugh had previously been to sea with me when I was
skipper of the 102ft ,,III-i, Caribee.
He was 16 years old at the time, and even then, it was obvious he
would go far in this very new industry. Actually, we spent one whole
summer in Marigot Harbour St Lucia, and our crew would climb up
into the hills each day to hack down trees which would be suitable
to fashion a new rudder and stock for the big .' 11.1 ,Ii
Then after that period, when I was running my own charter yacht,
Ron of Argyll, Sir Hugh became what I believe to be the first West
Indian skipper of the El.iii ii Harbour charter fleet on Sagittarius.
After several years in that position he took over the .1, i i i,1 .1
steel schooner Freelance and most :,i iiii, ran her, 1i1.111im i
a very memorable trip to the New York Parade of Sail in 1976 with
an all ,ii-., ii, crew! If anything served to establish the iii. I i
presence in the charter business it was this!
Freelance became the ii Ilm-.i of this memorable event and Sir
Hugh never looked back. After Captain Brown's death, Sir Hugh
took over both Bruno Brown's hotel, The Catamaran Club, and
continued to run Freelance for many years. It was not long before
he built the Catamaran Marina adjacent to the Cat Club Hotel in
Falmouth Harbour, and shortly after that also constructed the very
large Falmouth Harbour Marina (and also an II i : new boatyard)
which is i.. 1, responsible for the deep draft dockage for the big
yachts of today in ii'. II I
In recent years he has been made a member of the board of the
National Parks for the now-revitalized Nelsons Dockyard in El.iii Ii
Harbour. So, to an old friend, our warmest congratulations, Sir Hugh.
Now a I. Iii: of the Grand Collar of the Most LDi I .m. iI i .I Order of
the Nation. KGN.

A Woman at the Helm of the Antigua Yacht Club


BY GILLY GOBINET


t was only when Elizabeth Jordan
was in her forties-divorced and
children departed in pursuit of their
own careers-that she decided to
sell her company and take up sailing
seriously. Little did she suspect that
she would end up in Antigua as
the first woman Commodore of its
Yacht Club!
Always keen on sailing, she began
by acquiring her commercially
endorsed yachtmaster's and
instructor's license in the UK. Her
second investment was in ArcAngel,
a 36 ft Swan, comfortable for cruising,
competitive for racing and ideal for
teaching would-be sailors.


Racing in the Atlantic Rally for Cruisers (ARC) had always appealed, and it was i 'I ii. cold in
England, so she made for the Canaries. She left Las Palmas in 1999 and headed for the Caribbean with
her ill i i, i crew (the first one in the history of the ARC), coming in third in her
class. Her daughter-also a Yachtmaster-was first mate on the crossing.
Elizabeth went on to race in 1ii' 11, I i ,l. I Week 2000 and took a ii m. i to
its ii 1,. II and active y, I, 11 I community. She decided to settle there and run
a charter business, proc iii. i to skipper term charters from the Grenadines to
the BVI for four seasons with .i Ii, as her base. She went on to combine this
with a large villa for rentals, which became very popular with racing crews. She
has also Iii, participated in regattas i l i...'i..,i the Caribbean, notably
chartering for "girlsforsail.com", all female crews yet again, for three seasons in
/ i',,. ii, Race Week.
Always a very popular and active member of the, i. I Yacht Club (AYC),
Elizabeth became much involved in organizing its social events, to the members'
obvious ii ii.iii, as well as taking part in all its ii .ii activities. Her energy
and enthusiasm were infectious and it was in December 2007 that the male
dominated Yacht Club made the decision to appoint the dynamic Elizabeth as
their very first female Commodore.
She hopes that, with the new, keen committee, the Club will become more
active both on and off the water, and started with a bang by organizing the best
Christmas Dinner Party ever. Land events such as "Sunday is Funday,' to which
children and otheranimals were invited, and the monthly( 'iI I II. 1ii have already
proved very popular. The"Pimms Parties',with afternoon tea, croquet, and boules,
have met with similar enthusiasm. Film nights are also on the agenda.
On the water, the regular scheduled races have continued, beginning with the
Round the Island Race in January, c(. 1 1i 1 i i this time with a party on the lawn
in front of the AYC. The traditional half way party took place at Castaways in Jolly
Harbour as usual, the majority of participants in the infamous "Miss Round the
Island"(male beauty contest) being yet again French!
As the Jolly Harbour Yacht Club's Valentine's Regatta is always scheduled for
February, the AYC's next 1 1 ill be this month, with the Carlisle Bay Beach Bash.
Sub-titled ili ,. i to Hawaii"for the last three years, eager participants have worn
1 ... i 11ii costumes and consumed tropical food and drinks.This March, however, it will be" iiih. I to
Acapulco', and it is hoped that costumes will be equally creative and participation just as keen.
April and May herald the annual Classic Yacht 1 11i I and iiI,. i Week. June is more relaxing with
the Green Island Race and May more cosmopolitan, with the "Cruise to France" (a three-day trip to
Deshaies in Guadeloupe and back, with great emphasis on French food and wine!) at Whitsun.
Back at the AYC itself, the club is now open on Saturdays and Sundays with a new, lh iI i. ,l. I
programme. It is also the intent to expand the Youth iiII. i Programme, with the AYCs Olympic
sailor and Caribbean champion Karl James as instructor Elizabeth and her Vice Commodore, Frank
Pearce, and Rear Commodore, Franklin Braithwaite, are also eager for any ii. ii .. i from both
members and non-members for the AYC.
So if you fancy a 1ii .111 ( ..1 i.. i '..11.. I by a glass of Pimms and maybe a game of croquet
or boules, you should certainly visit the -ii i Yacht Club, where you can be sure of a warm and
hearty welcome with a lots of fun thanks to Commodore Elizabeth Jordan, her new manager Richard
Cii i. 11I,, and the rest of the AYC committee. Cheers! -&


Biologist and former Eurocrat Gilly Gobinet took up permanent residence on Antigua in the Caribbean in 1984. She
has been painting and writing-and sailing-ever since. Her work can be seen at originalcaribbeanart.com

NELSONS PURSUIT RACE, ANTIGUA


REPORT BY JOHN DUFFY

conceived by a past President of the Antigua
& Barbuda Marine Association, Stan Pearson,
and hosted by the Antigua Yacht Club
under the stewardship of the indefatigable
Tommy Patterson, the 5th Annual Nelson's Pursuit
Race was held off English Harbour, Antigua on
NewYear's Eve.
Average attendance for previous years was around
30 yachts but 37 signed on for the 2007 event, boosted
by five Dragons from Harmony Hall Yacht Club. ... I
a pursuit race, each yacht has a different start time
dependent upon handicap, the intention being for all
yachts to finish at the same time. Inevitably, they do
not although there were some very close and exciting
finishes with yachts just seconds apart, and more than
a quarter of the fleet crossing the finish line within two
minutes.
The slowest yacht and the first to start carries a large
F 1 i, i 1 ,,, n 1 I11 11i i i ryachtscarrytheU.K.
ensign to symbolise the pursuit of the French fleet by
Admiral Nelson acrosstheAtlantictotheWest Indies and
back again.
The race ,, i I was held at Antigua Yacht Club
the day before the race at 1805 hours, 1805 being the


year of the Battle of Trafalgar. To encourage all types
of yachts, only upwind sails were allowed to be used
throughout the race with no additional headsails
being permitted for downwind legs. The course: a close
reach to the Nelson buoy a couple of miles off English
Harbour followed by a broad reach to the Villeneuve
buoy off Carlisle Bay. Admiral Villeneuve commanded
the French fleet pursued by Nelson across the Atlantic
and at Trafalgar. The third leg was a beat to a buoy off
English Harbour with a run to the finish line.
Blustery winds of around 25 knots and big seas,
7 to 8 feet, discouraged one yacht from starting and
three others did not finish. Two were disqualified for
course infringements.
The race was not without incident. Aboard SV
Galletea a crew member, Russell 'Sprout' Morton, slid
down the deck during a heavy squall and pinned his
foot between the shroud and the cap rail and then fell
overboard. He managed to grab a stanchion with his
left hand to prevent himself from completely i11i I
off the boat. The ABSAR 1 I, iI 1 Barbuda Search and
Rescue) safety boat was nearby and maneuvered close
enough to allow the paramedic, Jonathan Cornelius,
to get aboard. He Ii i, I a severe dislocation to
the right ankle and splinted the leg, remaining aboard


SV Galletea until they reached Falmouth where the
casualty was transferred to the ABSAR rescue boat and
then ashore to a waiting ambulance.
The fleet was split into four classes, 11 IRacer/
Cruiser, Cruising and Classic. The finish came down
to seconds between several boats with only one
second between the first and second boats, 42 (Sven
Harder) and Dragon 9 both from the .. I class with
the third boat, Sunshine (Hans Lammers), from the
Cruising class, a further 50 seconds behind. As well
as being the overall winner, 42 won the racing class
with Hugo Bee (Hugh Bailey) wining the Racer/Cruiser
class and fifth overall. Sunshine took first place in the
Cruising class with Mariella (Carlo Falcone) taking first
place in the Classic class just seven seconds ahead of
Petrana (Paul Deeth).
Prize giving was held in Nelson's Dockyard and
conducted by Tommy Patterson attired, as usual, in an
18th Century braided frock coat and tricorn hat.
Lolita, a previous Antigua 1iii I Week overall
winner, was specifically chartered for the Nelson's
Pursuit Race.With increased interest in Ai n 1, 1 ii, I
from Guadeloupe, next year John Burnie (Nautor's
Swan Caribbean) will be joining the committee to
represent the Guadeloupe entries.-&

YACHT DESTROYED BY FIRE IN ANTIGUA


REPORT BY JOHN DUFFY


mid a furious thunderstorm on the
morning Monday 21st January, the
94 foot yacht Keturah was I" 11 -i1,
struck by i. ii ii ii. i at about 6 a.m ii ... ii, as
the fire started in the engine room, opinions as
to the cause differ The yacht was completely
burnt out and destroyed by the subsequent fire.
The yacht's Captain Brent Daw and his wife
Amanda, the only crew on board, had arrived
the previous evening from St. Maarten and
docked at the Catamaran Marina. They were
asleep when the yacht was struck and were
awakened by a loud noise. Seeing flames, Brent
apparently attempted to tackle the fire and in
the process received second degree burns over
about 20% of his body. After the intervention
of ABSAR (, ,1,. 11 i Barbuda Search and Rescue)
he was rushed to the Adelin Clinic ... ii,
with his wife who received minor injuries.
Brent was subsequently flown to Miami for
further treatment.


Quick action by yachtsmen from other boats
moored at the Catamaran Marina prevented any
damage to the dock and other nearby yachts.
They released the Ketura's mooring lines and
towed her away until she went aground about
100 yards from the marina.
Despite the heavy rains, the efforts of fire
,11. 1i with a i, i II. from All Saints and the
volunteers manning a variety of craft, r,. 11i11. I
could quench the blaze. A -.i.III.I to the
Captain there were 3,000 litres of fuel on board
which probably contributed to the severity of
the fire. A I. Ii. I boom lent by Ii. I I Yacht
Club Marina was placed around the burning
yacht to prevent oil i 11. i from 11 inr" to
the Catamaran Marina.
At about 8 a.m. the mast of the yacht fell
down, ..I.. .I soon after by two substantial
explosions, believed to be caused by i I I. .. 1, i
gas cylinders. Despite the fire having subsided
by the end of Monday, it re-ignited itself on


Tuesday morning, the hulk burning for a total
of 36 hours. Insurers have had the remains of
the yacht lifted to examine it to endeavour to
establish the cause of the fire.
Several other yachts were reported
to have been struck by I. iiI III. i but none
seriously damaged. A--


Editor's note: The All at Sea team thanks
several readers on Antigua who sent reports
and photos of this event.

ALAIN FOY, JR.

Artist & Builder of Saintoise Boats


BY NANCY TERRELL I PHOTOS BY YVES COHEN


Local Saintoise boats, built in
Les Saintes, Guadeloupe, have
always held a fascination for
me. When my friend, Yves
Cohen, owner of Maogany
Boutique, suggested that I
write an article about Alain
Foy Jr, a young artist/designer/
builder of these strong and
beautiful vessels, I jumped at
the chance.


I ll l I i 1 I i I, , 1I , ., 1, I I h I d l ,

I Ill .1 .11 1i i 1 il. 1i -I I.. i I .II 11 1 11,i
II 11 I 11.1 11..1 11 1 1. 1 1 . Il1l a 1 Il I
hand. His boats were rast and powerful and
have often been seen ii i.. i the sea of the
sometimes difficult Chenals Passage between
Guadeloupes southern islands"' i/ l...i. i li he
is now retired, Alain Sr. is his son's number one
fan in the ci illn' ii of Saintoise boats for the
twenty-first century -giving him tips from time
to time on his new projects. These amazing
boats, built by the senior Foy, still continue to
be a source of inspiration for his son as well as
other shipwrights.
L i .1 1 i i in .i and ,.ll ,'ii,,. have
been the main occupations of Guadeloupe, an
archipelago of eight inhabited islands in the
Lesser Antilles, known for their delicious Creole
cuisine that features numerous ways in which
to cook the local 'catch of the day' The famed
Saintoise boats of Les Saintes are picture perfect
as seen beached, or on moorings. In these
sturdy vessels, fishermen have been *i Iii i i.
their trade since the island was reclaimed by the
French in the era of Napoleon I (Bonaparte) at
the beginning of the 18th century. Even today,
fishermen can be seen daily from early morning


until late afternoon.
( '-11111 ill the Saintoise boats had a single
mast and long boom and were capable of
1 ii...II I.I large loads of freight between
Guadeloupe Point, 3 Rivers, Marie Gallante and
St. Barth. They carried a large mainsail usually
sewed at home or on the banks of the harbor
Like Alain's family, fishermen from Les Saintes
have always been excellent sailors, as well as
fishermen, so it is not surprising that it is now
"racing"that captures the spirit and attention of
Alain Jr. and other sailors.
Alain says, "At seventeen I constructed my
first Saintoise boat -it was 4.50 meters. Since
that time I have built twelve other Saintoise
boats. First I seek out the wood, locally called
Ylang Ylang, a tree whose blossoms are used
for perfumes. When I have found exactly what
I want, my intuition comes into play and, as an
artist, I begin the creation of a new vessel. This is
a very personal passion with me and I want for
I 1i, 1. to be exact.
"I have the wood cut in Guadeloupe
1. I iii I to the phases of the moon. All of my
measurements have to be precise as we have very
tough competitions for the ,i i. I Champion of
Guadeloupe every year. The ( -i-i. ii .I boats
are to be scaled to a maximum of 5.35 meters in
I ,. iiil with a beam of 1.8 meters and a mast of
7.25 meters. The'Bamboo Boom' measures 6.50
meters in ,' illi h ..* ill,, I will compete and
win in my newest Saintoise, Ibiscus LA"
Alain is a most talented artist as well.
El, i ..11 i. ~1 ill, involved, he creates wooden
sculptures of sea animals that show his love for
marine life. He is ii iii concerned that his boat
S. 11i. 11,. 1 techniques, which include hundreds of
hours of single-handed craftsmanship, will be
carried on by up-coming- .1 i1 i.ii'
"I would like to have a sponsor who could
assist me in helping to open a school for 111. iii I.
the Saintoise boats .. i. i,. to our ancestral
designs. Their construction is unique and is
deeply influenced i,,. .1. l, our ancestry. This
is an art that must be preserved for the future
of both Ii i and racing, as well as for our
national heritage'
Author's note: My sincere thanks to Yves
Cohen who interviewed Alain in French and
provided the photos for this article. I couldn't
have written this article without him. -

RESCUES STRANDED FISHERMAN


REPORT SUBMITTED BY WORLD CRUISING CLUB


The World Cruising Club's round the world rally,
World ARC 2008, departed from Rodney Bay, St.
Lucia on 23 January and will finish back in the
Caribbean in late March 2009.
The British registered Oyster 82 Tillymint,
largest yacht taking part in the rally, was involved
in the dramatic rescue of a stranded Caribbean
fisherman whilst on route to Panama in
late January.
The small open i i.i. I vessel, the Vegas
from St. Lucia, had been dilill,.ii for 20 days
without a serviceable engine. In the early hours
of Saturday 26 January (local time), at position
1328N 6723W approximately 80 nautical miles
off the island of Aruba, the on-watch crew of
Tillymint heard faint cries for help from close by,
i.. .i iil, they could not see another vessel.
In the time it took the crew to drop sails, turn


the yacht around and get back upwind against
25 knots to the incident position, the crew of the
Vegas had started a small fire to attract attention.
The fishermen were in a desperate situation,


since despite passing close to other vessels they
had been unable to raise a distress call.
Unfortunately, their signal fire got out of
control and before Tillymint reached their
position, the crew had to abandon the vessel
and jump into the sea to escape the fire. One
crewmember was rescued and taken onboard
Tillymint. However, in the darkness and weather
conditions -i iiii,.i at the time, they were
unable to locate the remaining three fishermen.
Under the direction of MRCC Curacao,
Tillymint conducted a search of the area
around the wreckage, joined at first light by
other World ARC yachts -Southern Princess,
Grey Lady, Harmonie, BlueFlyer and Strega,
and a Coastguard SAR aircraft. The Netherlands
Coastguard ship, the Jaguar was also sent to the
area to co-ordinate the search.
The survivor, Sherwin John, from St. Lucia
was evacuated onto the Jaguar. Despite the
best efforts of the search vessels, MRCC Curacao
called off the search at 18:30 local time on the 26
January, having failed to locate the three missing
crew. World ARC yachts resumed their course for
Panama to transit the Panama Canal.

Ninety Billfish Releases & Record-

Breaking 53-pound Dorado Top 39th

Annual Spice Island Billfish Tournament

BY CAROL M. BAREUTHER, RD


H i 'I I I I i i1i. 11ii 11 1, ii ial Spice Island Billfish Tournament, held out of the
Grenada Yacht Club January 16-19, when 175 anglers on 35 boats c.. I I released ninety billfish,
plus a couple of large yellow fin tuna.
Tournament director Gary Clifford tells the tale:"This year, as a new feature, the boats paraded out
i..' iii the Carenage area of St George's on the way to the bimini start behind the cruise ship jetty.
This gave the public an opportunity to view the boats up close and personal before they headed
offshore to find the fish. At the bimini start Crazy Horse, Magic Lady and Grey Ghost were notably
quick off the mark as was the new super-sized Afunday, which has to be one of the quickest boats to
ever fish the tournament -44 knots!"
Lines in started five minutes after the start at 7:35 am.
"Anyone who was concerned at the amount of green water everywhere, instead of our usual cobalt
blue, need not have been -it was full of fish!"says Clifford.
The fleet released 28 billfish on Day One. The action got started when C _, / and Risky
Business got off to an early lead by each releasing a sailfish, shortly .II I Finesse. White marlin
releases were reported for H', ii, Spirits and the tiny catamaran, Gecko. Ocean Spirit, from Barbados,
scored the first blue marlin release, .I.. I by countrymen and 2006 winners, Legacy. Pair-adice,
who had made a late arrival from Trinidad the day before due to computer-based engine problems,
scored two releases on sailfish. Luhred Away had a double release on white marlin and later added a
blue marlin release.
Boats that ventured north found whales I,. I accompanied by large yellow fin tuna. Trendsetter
caught no fewer than 11 yellow fin, the biggest at 150 pounds. Ii. I Hypolite i I ii. I on local boat,

Crazy Horse, caught a huge bull dorado
weighing 53-pounds. This whopper fish beat the
long ii,. i,.- tournament record and earned
him a US$375 prize.
Come Day Two, Zu Zu II, Equity and Hard
Play II released blue marlin in the early morning
. II.. I by High Spirits with a white marlin. Grey
Ghost started off an i II ii day of i 1Im I by
iI. 1,. i a patch of promising patch of water and
releasing four sails and a blue in that area. Hard
Play II, from Tobago, was not to be outdone and
added two sails and another blue release to their
first catch. In addition, they lost one blue marlin
shortly after the hook up due to a backlash
and Capt. "Frothy" de Silva reckoned that it
might well have been over 1000 pounds. Par-T-
Time from Trinidad put everyone in the shade,
however, as they scored no less than four sailfish
releases -plus a white and a blue -for a Grand
Slam. Luhred Away also achieved a tournament
grand slam.
While the luck was running for some boats,
Gecko surely had the worst luck story of the
tournament. The anglers released five billfish
( i i, 1, 1I i, la very large marlin at the end
of Day Two, however photographic and other
problems disqualified all but two.
Lay Day festivities were held on the beach
at the Grenada Yacht Club, where a buffet of
II 11i seafood dishes and fish chowder was
appreciated by all.
The last day of I i..... Day Three, saw heavy
winds and the rough seas. Hard Play II proved
up to the task and added two sailfish and a blue
marlin release to their already impressive score.
Par-TTime tried hard, but was only able to score
one sailfish. C i remained consistent
and added two blue marlin releases to their tally.
Finesse was last as they were first iii 1.I I off
the competition with a final sailfish release.
In total, says Clifford, "Fifteen blue marlin
were released, one blue marlin was landed, 54
sailfish were released and nine white marlin were
released. Two dorado, one wahoo and 11 yellow
fin tuna were brought to the scale." An awards
ceremony and closing dinner were held at the
Grenada Yacht Club.
The boat Par-TTime of Trinidad & Tobago,
owned and skippered by Robert Stauble, placed
second i. ,ll in the Boat Category. Among
Stauble's many prizes was a cheque for U.S.
$500 which he kindly handed over to the
event Chairman, asking him to donate it to
one of the Children's Homes in Grenada. The
Committee selected the Queen Elizabeth Home
for Children. J-

Angel Falls and the Waterfalls of Venezuela
BY NANCY TERRELL


h rv. Although I am a person who
l loves spontaneity, there is some
I,,.tI to be said about knowing
that you are about to have a great
adventure in life. Such was the
occasion when good friends Nels
and Linda Hagenson, along with
Paul Carrell (' i1 I Cay Marina's Dockmaster) and his wife Judy, flew down
from the BVI to visit in Nel's private Cessna 206 airplane. It is always fun to be
with close friends, but this particular visit was a fantastic expedition.
Flying with Jaime Escribens, a Venezuelan tourist executive, friend, and
interpreter, we entered into the canyons that house Angel Falls, the world's
tallest waterfall measuring some 3200 feet high, exploring the area from
incredible angles. The canyons are steep in rock, wildlife and green -.hii .
By comparison, ii i Falls has a drop of only 190 feet so Angel Falls is 15
times higher.
Fellow pilots at the nearby runway of Canaima National Park Airport,
where we eventually landed, wanted to know what type of pattern Nels
had flown as he did not seem to be ii. .- I the usual route. A commercial
pilot in Canada for some 40+ years he told them,"l simply ..II. I the river."
It makes sense to me and certainly provided us with a terrific thrill.
Angel Falls is located in the southeast of Venezuela in Bolivar State along

The Falls from a distance


the border with Brazil. The
nearest city is Ciudad Bolivar
some 600 km to the north.
There are wonderful rapids
running along the rivers that
connect the falls that are
located i i ...-l1,.., this area and there are a lot. We visited at least six
separate falls systems on foot and by canoe.
After such an experience one would think that ,i. I w,. I in the Amazon
Jungle to spend a few days would be anti climatic, but this was definitely
not the case this time. After having a two hour air tour of the Gur Dam,
and the iir,. i lake areas, we landed in Canaima National Park, where we
settled. The Guri Dam, which provides most of Venezuela with electricity, is
one of the largest in the world. It is located in Bolivar State on the Caroni
River and is 1300 meters long and 162 meters high. Construction started in
1963, with the first part (. -i, 1 1. ii,. I in 1978, and the second in 1986. Flying
over it was absolutely spectacular; all I could think about was what an
II 1 1 spot it would be for chartering for international boaters in these
huge lakes made by the dam itself
The beauty of the Amazon is unbelievable; there are millions of shades
of green with sounds that range from the softness of hummingbirds to the
thunder of the many nearby waterfalls. At a location just five degrees north
of the equator and 350 miles inland, this paradise can be visited either by
boat or plane fortunately, we were able to do both. Our adventure ended
at Jungle Rudy's, a wonderful posada that was IIIt,, and 1111 11
landscaped, sleeping in screened cabins or outdoor hammocks.
After touring in canoes with our Pemon Indian guide, Antonio, we
hiked on jungle trails i ..... Il, wilderness, and also trekked behind furious
waterfalls, an event that I shall cover in next month's All At Sea. I happily
admit that I will remember this trip for the rest of my life; during it, I became
convinced even more of the great beauty of our planet and the total
necessity of preserving that which is still wondrous. -&

and Just and Ard van Aanholt were only a few
points apart and each had a serious chance to
take the title.
Louis Hendrikx, the youngest of these four,
had been iiII. I in the shade of the others for
years, but in the last two races, Louis i II I
and eventually left Ard behind by three points.
His boat speed, his II I I II. li I of the current
and his usage of the wind shifts were impressive.
It made the difference with his opponents.
In the Optimist Class the level has not only
been rising, the top has also become broader
Louis, only eleven, is a clear proof of the positive
development of youth iiiiii. on Curacao.
At world class events, Ard van Aanholt had
already shown his talent and revealed that he is
possible to show some i II 1 results, but this
championship has made clear that the whole
fleet has reached a much higher level.
SIi I . ii Morgan Kiss, the highest Worlds
USA qualifier, was sent back to an I. i 1ll
fifth place by the four Curacao sailors. This is
promising for the Optinam 2008 which will


be sailed at the same location at the end of
June this year Mackenzie Cooper from Bermuda,
who was coached by his private coach Pablo
Webber, finished ninth. The best Dutchman
finished fifteenth.
Dennis van den Berg ruled the Splash Class
by miles.The victory was quite a relief for Dennis.
Years he had been close but never made it to
a big title. Now he was reigning with a very
consistent series of 1, 1, DNS, 1, 1, 1, 3, 1, 2,
and 4. The second place was decided between
Philipine van Aanholt and Vincent Pietersz only
just before the finish line of the last race. Philipine
passed Vincent and took second by just a few
meters. Conrad Jacobs, now I .i IiiI the
Netherlands, finished fourth and Vincent Taams
took fifth.
The Optimist B and the YSCO Optis
conquered the waves in Spanish Waters at
the "Stormplas', the windiest spot. Races were
tense and competition tough. In Optimist B,
Romy Toornend sailed her Optimist to a first

Curacao sailor Kyra Maas completed the all-girl


prizewinners. Aimee Voigt won the YSCO Opti

The prize giving ceremony of the 4th ENNIA

eyes of many spectators. Prime Minister Emily de
Jongh Ell i. I assisted by Netherlands Antilles
Olympic Committee director Remco Tevreden
and representatives of the main sponsors Ennia

ii 11 i I is scarcely out of Ii I in Curacao,
I.,i I lI i ,ii community is vastly growing since
I 'iil1 11 I i i nicknamed DJ, came to the
I I,. i 1, enthusiasm, professionalism and
perseverance united the local kite surfers. By
organizing special events, the group has worked
itself into the picture- like a i ...1. i. il. i...1
clean-up of the dirt road that leads to the new
kite 11I ii I spot at St Joris Bay where the group
can be found every day of the week and where
DJ keeps his kite Ii i1. i school.
Besides St Joris Bay there are some great
spots in Curacao for kite 1Iu1,.1 like secluded
bays at the south coast, windy coves at the north
coast and the small inhabited island of Klein
Curacao. The wind in Curacao is about 16 to 20
knots from January until September and it only
slows down a bit in the rainy season.
"As we kite in secluded areas, the down side
is that these territories are also used for II il
dumping," says DJ. "The terrains that are owned
by the government or privately owned are so
big that the owners don't have any sight on who
is entering their site. Unfortunately, dumping
garbage in nature is a bad habit on the island. It
should be over!
"Slowly but surely we are gaining background
bycleaning up this In I I dumping with the help
of kite surf volunteers, nature foundation "Uniek
Curacao," and Selikor, the waste management
company of Curacao which considers litter
prevention as one of its missions. The people
who dump their trash should let go of their old
habits and I 'I I i i 111 i aboutthe future of their
children and the Island!" DJ firmly states.
Looking intothefuture DJ started 1I 1 11 i.,ii i
a kite foundation so competitions can be
organized and international foundations have a
contact on the island.
"Curacao holds a lot of secret spots that
still have to be discovered and surfed. Guided
tours accompanied by a .in. II.i boat to
secret beaches and hard to reach lagoons are
. -1 1 .1ii I want to realize. I want to make
Curacao a kite surf destination with adventure
kite spots for everybody's level!"
About DJ: ii i,.I first got introduced to
kiting in 2001 in Aruba. He quit his desk job
at IBM in the Netherlands at the end of 2000,


packed his stuff and moved to his
mother's island. After taking a few
lessons, DJ soon became addicted
to this new sport. In 2006 he started
working for a friend who just had
taken over a kite/wind i 11 i, I school.
For one and a half years he taught
kite iII, .i and 11,.I 'ii ii.i day in

WHAT is KITE SURFING:
Kite surfing, also known as kite boarding, is a relatively new sport that first gained popularity in the
late 1990s. It's by far the latest craze and fastest growing water sport in the world. Kite surfing involves
using the power of a large controllable kite to pull a rider across the water on a small surfboard or a
kite board (a wakeboard-like board).Your body is the only connection between the kite and the board
and you have to control them both at the same time: piloting the kite in the sky and steering the board
on the water. The power kites use an Inflatable edge to form the shape of the kite and are capable of
being relaunched from the water.
Once the kite is in the air it manufactures its own wind, which is proportionately faster and creates
a higher rate of speed so the kite surfer is able to reach high speeds, jump extremely high and perform
amazing and exhilarating stunts. Different size kites allow you to kite board in various wind strengths.
The bigger the kite, the lighter the wind you can go in. With bigger kites you can get going in as little
as 10 knots, and with smaller kites you can still sail along in strong winds of 35 knots or more.
The sport is becoming safer due to innovations in kite design, safety release systems, and certified
kite surf lessons for the right instructions. Many riding styles have evolved such as wake style, wave
riding, fireestyle, jumping, and cruising. In its short but exciting history kite surfing has brought together
the most exciting components of other extreme sports.

Studies Show Captive Dolphin Programs Shorten Lives
BY BECKY A. DAYHUFF


- -- ~ --~-~-
--~~~ -z---


It is well documented that cetaceans living in
captivity J 1i i l, have much shorter life spans
and suffer from health problems until dying,
often from causes not found in wild populations.
No matter how great the funding of a facility
may be, captive conditions and feeding cannot
replicate that found in the wild. Creating a
captive environment for an animal that may
migrate, .1.. ",j food sources and changing
environment conditions for thousands of miles,
is impossible.
Creating a captive environmentwith the same
depths (990 feet) to which some wild dolphins
dive also is impossible. And, creating a captive
environment for animals whose very existence
depends upon their echolocation abilities is
beyond impossible. With gates clanging, people
1 in1 i vehicles passing, water outlets and filters
roaring 24 hours a day, the cacophony of sound
to a captive whale or dolphin is confusing and


maddening. This assault of sound is thought
to be a contributing factor to the stress related
diseases found in captive dolphins.
The average lifespan of a wild bottlenose
dolphin is approximately 40 years; however,
statistics show the average life span of a captive
bottle nose dolphin, the most popular species
for captive facilities, is a mere 5 years. Imagine
yourself captured and torn away from your
family-some left behind, some taken with you
in a separate place where you cannot see one
other but can hear each other's cries...and there
is nothing you can do to help.
I was an eyewitness to such an event at
an Anheuser-Busch captive dolphin facility
considered to be state of the art, one that
voluntarily reported 93 dolphin deaths between
1971 and 2002. A dolphin named Yoko was
separated from her long-time companion who
cried relentlessly to be reunited. Yoko repeatedly


"The average lifespan of
a wild bottlenose dolphin
is approximately 40 years;
however, statistics show the
average life span of a captive
bottle nose dolphin, the most
popular species for captive
facilities, is a mere 5 years."






left her'training'session and attempted, in vain,
to find a way through the barrier that separated
them. When she was unsuccessful, she turned
on her tormentor and rammed her with her
beak. Yoko was deemed to be a"bad"dolphin.
The exact number of captive dolphin
facilities is unknown and there is no over
sight agency keeping track of them. In the
United States, the Department of Agriculture,
SI ii i i overseeing the commercial keeping of
animals, has no authority to regulate the captive
dolphin business so there are no requirements
to report all dolphin deaths. According to the
World Society for the Protection of Animals,
extrapolating all captive dolphin deaths around
the world by the 93 deaths reported at the
'state of the art' Anheuser-Busch facility would
make the total captive dolphin deaths per year
astronomical.
Where do these captive dolphins come from?
Perhaps you have seen them...riding your bow,
cavorting in the surf, gently nudging a newborn
to the surface for his first breath as you relax on
your boat or dock. Next month we will further
explain the capturing and where these dolphin
serve out their much shorten lives.

After 30years as a wild and domestic animal rescuer,
rehabber, and educator in the states, Becky Dayhuff
became a scuba instructor and award-winning journalist
covering the marine environment in the Caribbean. She
is a contributing photographer to NOAA.

Hundreds of cadets, 10 to 12 at a time, cruised
and raced her sturdy blue hull while practicing
command and control at sea. Built in 1965. she was
one of twelve fiberglass training vessels for the U.S.
Naval Academy. Annapohs. Maryland, replacing a
nearly identical but engineless mahogany yawl of
the same name. In 1987, the Luders 44 yawl Frolic,
NA-5, was transferred to the U.S. Coast Guard
Academy, painted white and renamed Kittiwake.

he government of the Virgin Islands bought her in 1994 for a sailing school on
St. Croix which never opened. The government had no resources to restore her after
Hurricane Lenny washed her ashore in 1999, so she sat in Salt River until the V.I.
government auction in July 2006.
Her hull was covered by oysters, her keel was a living reef, her decks were soft, and her
interior was a termite banquet. A line on her ill I i, I clearly marked where the waters of Salt River lay for
almost seven years. Who knew in what condition her rigging, sails, engine and cushions would be? There
were no bidders for her, and it seemed as though she would end her life in pieces, a hurricane victim.
Joe McCants grew up in St. Simons Island, Georgia, and served as a mechanic in the Air Force. He has rebuilt
several wooden and fiberglass boats: Aleri, a John Alden sloop later damaged by Hurricane Lenny; Hobo, a 44'
John Hammond sloop; GhostDancer, a Hunter 30, among others."Yawls are still new to me,' he says.
After sailing Vigilant, NA-12, on the Chesapeake Bay in 1982, Joe knew he'd like to have a Navy yawl
someday. Vigilant and Alert, NA-2, were retired from Academy duty and in use at the Patuxent, MD, Navy
Sailing club. (Resolute, NA-3, renamed Ospreywhen transferred to the Coast Guard Academy, is now privately
owned in St. John and has visited St. Croix often.)
After the government's bidder-less July auction, Joe saw Frolic/Kittiwakeat a Department of Planning and
Natural Resources mooring and could tell that 1) the Luders lines were as beautiful as he'd remembered, and
2) immediate action was needed or his dream would sink before the October auction. A rented pump kept
her afloat until Joe submitted the only bid.
Joe introduced the widow of his good friend artist Gabby Hayes to sailing. Diane Given Hayes had lived
and worked within sight of the harbor since 1987 and remembered pleasant childhood camping vacations
in her native California. She came to St. Croix on a 10 day vacation trip from which she never returned, and
worked as a commercial artist, designer and waitress. After Gabby's death in 2003, Diane helped Joe restore Ghost

Dancer and moved aboard. Living aboard a 30-foot
sloop was not too different from camping.
They sailed Ghost Dancer to Venezuela in 2005,
exploring islands and inland, including a rare visit
with southern Venezuela's Yanomami Indians. Eager
to see more of the Caribbean and its people, they
knew they could restore the graceful 44-foot yawl.
Having a tiny mizzen would keep the boat head to
wind at their mooring and would make balancing
the sail plan easy downwind.
Kittiwake's restoration began in October 2006
with scraping off the oysters. She was towed to the
Christiansted boardwalk, where multiple layers of
paint were power washed into buckets. The engine
and shaft were replaced during a month hauled out
at St. Croix Marine. At her mooring in the harbor, Joe
and Diane continued the work and moved aboard
as soon as they could after selling GhostDancer
While Joe did most of the heavy lifting, Diane
worked as coatings specialist and go-fer She
continued to waitress and to paint watercolors and
murals, but living on a boat limited the size of her
paintings. When a suitable space became available,
she opened Watch Your Step Studio, named for its
ancient stairway, on Queen Cross Street.


Joe and Diane were pleased to find the hull
and spars sound. The lights work, the bronze
portlights are watertight, and the seacocks have
grease fittings and work like new. Seventeen sails,
an awning and cushions for nine bunks had been
stored ashore and are in good condition. The
yawl now has new non-skid on new decks, new
rigging and a new electrical panel.
New wood, including a native mahogany table,
replaced termite-damaged furnishings. Joe has
serviced and reinstalled seven of the 15 winches.
Still on the list, roller furling and topsides paint.
Eventually, the bunks amidships will be converted
to a dinette and settee. When the hull is painted, the
name on the blue transom will return to Frolic. Joe
and Diane plan to cruise the Caribbean for two to
three years, before looking for their next projects_

After spending most his life in, on, and
by the sea, Peter Muilenburg wrote

Visit his website www.sailBreath.com


Tarifa comes immediately to mind, one of the prettiest towns we visited in
Spain. It was located on the extreme south coast across a wide sparkling
bay west of the Rock of Gibraltar. The town was built on a hill whose slopes
bore radiant sun-splashed, whitewashed building. Arrays of flower boxes
spilling over with blossoms faced each other across cobblestone streets.
It was a bright morning and housewives were out and about,
chatting with each other, sweeping the streets in front of their houses,
and actually washing them down with buckets of water. They looked up
and smiled as I passed, Santos trotting by my side on his leash while, for
my part, I tried to convey with admiring glances my appreciation of their
classic and well-kept town.
Just then, very then, I felt dead weight on the leash-just what I
dreaded. Without looking, I knew he'd chosen this mortifyingly public,
carefully cleaned place to suddenly dig all four feet in, and hunker
down over his butt, looking up with that distinctive grimace of chagrin
that nevertheless never gave him the slightest pause. Once he froze
in position, no jerking of the leash could delay or stop him until he
had left his calling card on the clean washed stone, leaving me one of
two options: to blithely cop the attitude that these people should feel
honored to have a token of our passing-or to cast about lamely for
some way to dispose of it.
If I had a Kleenex I could pick it up and...then what? With no
garbage cans about, should I put it nonchalantly in my pocket? Luckily
I had no Kleenex, so instead looked for some implement-a piece of
paper, a fragment of wood, a tin can, or a paper cup. But the street
was immaculate-with the one glaring exception from Santos. Finding
nothing but a smooth rock I attempted to flip "it" neatly into the gutter
but only managed to spread it around, making a worse mess while the
housewives iJI Ili ill, stopped talking and watched this idiot foreigner.
Most of the Turkish coast was ideal for wandering and exploring with
a dog. Many of anchorages were uninhabited coves wild with rock, slope,
and forest, yet with pathways worn into the stone testifying to thousands
of years of prior footsteps. One never knew what amazing remnant from
some ancient civilization might crop up in a field or at the water's edge or,
for that matter, beneath it.
There are so many ruins all along the coast, one begins to appreciate
what a long-running civilization it was and how extensive and rich its
culture, with fine touches of sculpture so profuse that 2000 years later, they
are still turning up in farmers'fields. In the U.S. an artifact that old would
be locked in a glass case, have a full time guard around it, and the environs
declared a national historic site with curators and parking attendants. But
here in Turkey, the ancient past is kicking around underfoot, with only
Zeus knows what else lying beneath that likely looking mound of dirt.
Off the southern bulge of Turkey we lay to our anchor in a pleasant
cove not far from the town of Kas, known in ancient times as, il ii .1. ..
It was a beautiful anchorage, looking across blue sunlit water to the

whitewashed town at the foot of a steep mountain massif Directly behind
our stern, a steep hill, almost a cliff, rose up a couple of hundred feet and
then leveled off in an extensive ledge, shady with trees, a vantage point
that would command the coast for many miles. There looked to be a goat
path up the hill that we could ascend.
Early one morning with no one else up except Santos, who was
gazing silently out to sea, I got out my shoes and dropped them softly
on the deck. He sprang to attention, recognizing the sound of leather,
two impacts. Shoes on deck always meant walk...never shoe shine.
We started climbing along the trail, Santos with his nose glued to the
ground as he traveled.
Tell-taledroppings and somewhere up above us the tinkling ofearthenware
bells spoke of goats, but the trail somehow seemed more substantial than just
a goat path-there were several spots where steps and handholds had been
carved into the rock, where I had to give Santos a boost. But I gave it no
thought'til we reached the ledge, a shelf of about a quarter acre overgrown
with trees and shrubs. The view was spectacular, clearly the best along
this stretch of the coast, following the regular trend of the shore where the


monolithic mountain sloped bluntly down to meet the sea.
Santos had disappeared behind a bush and I could hear him scratching
at something. I peered around the trees and saw his nose pressed under
a huge boulder where no doubt a lizard had scurried for safety. The rock
was overgrown with foliage but had an unusually regular shape-then I
noticed its feet, carved out of the rock, feet like a lion. Pulling away the
tangle of dead vines revealed a lid of heavy stone, ponderous and ajar; it
was a stone coffin-a sarcophagus.
I had read about them in books and seen pictures, but that hadn't
readied me for the impact of this massive casket, carved out of a single
block of stone, as elaborately chased with grooves, facets, and panels
as though it had been routed out of soft pine. There were symbols at
either end, some resembling the sun, and lines of writing all along the
bottom edge. The whole of it was shaped handsomely, with a balance
and grace that belied its weight. The lid had been lifted and cracked, by
grave robbers probably. As I marveled over it, I caught sight of another
one, also obscured by foliage. Eventually Santos and I found half a dozen
of these sarcophagi, each one weighing tons, all with their lids cracked
or broken, some plainer than others but every one of them an amazing
piece of work.
The lonely and beautiful ledge was an ancient necropolis. The same
promise of beauty that had drawn us up here to gaze forever down that
clear coast had drawn these people to their final resting place. What a
wonderful spot, what a wonderful concept...the massive stone tombs and
the view spoke of eternity and peace in a language one could not hear
but could see, and feel...and know. -

1 Tblsp. grated fresh ginger root
1 tsp. soy sauce

Salt and pepper to taste
Snap tough ends off asparagus. Peel stalks, if
desired. In a large skillet, bring about 1-inch of
water to boiling. Add asparagus and simmer,
uncovered, until barely tender, about 4 to 5
minutes. Drain and dunk in ice water until cold;
drain, cover and chill until serving.
Meanwhile, in a medium size bowl, combine all
remaining ingredients. Transfer dip to an attractive
serving bowl, serve with asparagus spears, or cover
and chill until ready to serve.


HUMMUS WITH BLACK OLIVES
Preparation time: 5 minutes
Chilling time: 2 hours I
Serves: 4-6

14 oz can garbanzo beans (chick peas)
2 garlic cloves
2 tsp. tahini*
2 Tblsp. olive oil
3 Tblsp. fresh lime juice
2 Tblsp. water
4 Tblsp. yogurt, plain
3 oz. black pitted olives, roughly chopped

Blend garbanzo beans in food processor with
remaining ingredients except black olives. (Note: If
using dried beans, first cook according to package
instructions.) Spoon into serving dish, cover and
chill for at least 30 minutes, the longer the better, to
let flavors develop. This is very easy and looks good.
Hint: Traditionally the hummus is made with
1/2 pint of olive oil; this recipe is much lighter.
Hummus is a Middle Eastern dish and goes well
with couscous. Also, serve it as a dip with crudites.
*Tahini is a paste made from sesame seeds. If
difficult to find, use peanut butter. Adjust garlic to
your taste.


PARMESAN, CHICKEN, AND
BROCCOLI PASTA
Preparation time: 15 minutes
Cooking time: 10 minutes
Serves: 4 (2-1/2 cups each)

8 oz (1/2 of 16 ozpkg.) whole wheat spaghetti,
uncooked
1/2 cup Light Zesty Italian Reduced Fat Dressing
4 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
1 lb. Boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into strips
4 cups broccoli florets
1 cup chopped tomatoes
1 cup shredded Mozzarella Cheese, divided
1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese

Preheat oven 4000F/2000C. Combine oil, lime juice
and cilantro in a small bowl. Place fish (skin side
down) on a greased baking sheet. Brush with oil
mixture and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Let rest
20 minutes. Then bake for 20 minutes. Meantime,
combine salsa ingredients in food processor and
pulse lightly. Arrange arugula and watercress on
plates, lay snapper over greens and top with salsa.


ORIENTAL SHRIMP SALAD
Preparation time: 30 minutes
Chilling time: 60 minutes I Serves: 8

1 pkg. Ramen noodles
2 heads Napa cabbage or Bok Choy, thinly sliced
5 spring onions, chopped
1 purple cabbage sliced
1 red pepper, finely chopped
1 cup sliced almonds
1/2 cup sesame seeds
2 Ibs shrimp, cooked

DRESSING:
1/3 cup red wine vinegar
1/8 cup hot sesame oil
1/4 cup sweet sherry
4 Tblsp. low salt soy sauce
1/4 cup honey
1 cup canola oil
1/4 tsp wasabi
1/4 cup brown sugar

Mix all dressing ingredients and chill for at least 30
minutes. Add noodles, mix well, then add remaining
salad ingredients and chill for another 30 minutes. -&
