serviced slips for yachts of all sizes (including superyachts of up
to 90m) available right now for sale or let. From November,
nine additional superyacht slips from 75 to 85m will be available.

include luxury hotels, villas, restaurants and bars, plus some of
the finest boutiques and shops in the region.

It's a question of trust.


What do owners of over 8,000 yachts, motorboats,
superyachts, raceboats, powerboats and international
sailing teams have in common?

They all trusted the world's leading provider of global
marine logistics services to manage the shipment of
their craft, to 150 ports in 62 countries, around the
world last year.

The facts speak for themselves.

Dear Editor,

I really enjoyed Fatty Goodlander's
article, "On Ports and Passages My
fiveyears out took me from Australia
to South East Asia, across the Indian
Ocean (Sri Lanka, Maldives, Chagos)
and back to Thailand, then from
Malaysia across the Indian Ocean (Sri
Lanka, Maldives, C 1, i i 11
Dar, Zanzibar, Madagascar,) portby
port around South Africa to Brazil,
then (believe it or not, on a different
yacht) from Malaysia to Norway via
the Red Sea and the Med and finally
the North Sea.
I wrote articles for a newspa-
per at the time. I spent two long
periods in Chagos. After the first of
them, which I remember as a time-
i in ll. I 'ill paradise, I sat down to
write about it and what I had done
there...and found I couldn't.
What did I do? Well...I read
some books, I did some i ii... I
picked some coconuts-but how
do you fill newspaper pages with
that? And yes, it's ten years ago
since I was there the last time, so I
guess I'll sail in there one day now
and say, "You should have been
here in the nineties...

Thanks for a good story!
Bjorn Endresen

Currently being introduced as a pilot program in St. Lucia and the British
Virgin Islands, and scheduled to be launched soon elsewhere, the voluntary
eSeaClear system means that boaters should soon be able to submit data
via computer for Customs Clearance for entry and departure. The project is
being developed i ..i ii a partnership of the Caribbean Marine Association
and the Caribbean Customs Law Enforcement Council. Yacht captains must
still report to customs on arrival, but the goal is to make the process faster.


In September, luxury marina developers and operators IGY announced
the opening of a European headquarters in Spain. The office will oversee
operations and acquisition/development opportunities in the Mediterranean
for the company, initially focusing on Croatia, Greece and Turkey. The
company's Caribbean marina locations include St. Maarten, St. Lucia, the

In early October, the Royal Southampton Yacht Club and"Spice Race"promoter
Tony Lawson postponed the start of the 4321 mile race from the Solent to St

an inaugural race we did not thinkthere were sufficient entries to support the
associated social, educational and charity programmes we had wanted for
here and Grenada .It is a disappointment but our efforts to date have given
us a great deal of information and we will build on this for next year," said
Lawson. www.spicerace.com

,ill -, ii for the Caribbean, and we are seeing more and more of them of
all sizes here. They've become a huge part of our business, and we needed
a machine to haul them without difficulty." Puerto del Rey needed a piece
of equipment that could adapt to its smaller boats as well. The customized
machine utilizes hydraulic cylinders to move the lift arms closer ... II1 i as
needed to fit between a catamaran's two hulls and reduce the carrying width
from 14 feet to 10 feet. www.Sea-Lift.com





"This will be our 8th annual N.A.R.C. Rally i I i. Ii from Newport October

After I i I I I1,. i Rhode Island, about 20 boats sail 1500 miles to Bermuda, a
trip of four to six days, then onward to the Caribbean, arriving by November
15 in St. Maarten. Cost of joining the rally is $599 per boat, which includes

edition in 2001, when he was 'i... II, c1 liiI. i 31 boats, half of them
bareboats. "Today such bareboats are only 10% of the regatta fleet of
almost 60 boats, meaning that private owners are more and more
motivated," Marziou said. He reports that the local government, i ii. .,
Guadeloupe" just introduced new political investment in the iiiII.i

IN GOLDEN HOOK


FISHING CLUB'S GUY/GAL'REEL' CHALLENGE

BY CAROL M. BAREUTHER, RD


At thp award dinner on Mondav


SUNFLOWER'S WEEKEND
"Lines went in at 6:30 a.m. and we headed for
C-buoyabout 18 miles north of St. Croix,"Fennessy
says of the first day, or "Guys" day, of ..... i "We
kept 1i..IInI. and ,..Ii .i 'i..iiii. W e started
i 11 ,i, I a bit sleepy and inattentive. Then, it was
just after 11 a.m. when I saw tuna birds 300 yards
to the left. I ran right over the spot where they
were and Paul Anderson hooked up a 47-pound
bull dolphin. It put up a good 1ii Then, we went
back around and caught its mate'
After this, Fennessy steered his boat over
towards the Lange Bank. "We took a few passes
on the east side of the bank and had a good hit
by a 60-pound wahoo that got off. Minutes later
Rolando Maissonet caught a 27-pound wahoo:'
This gave Fennessy's Sunflower a total of 100.1
pounds for first place on the Guys day. Leisure Lady
finished second with 83.4 pounds and Two FerSure
third with 46.3 pounds.
The ii. 11i I day, the Gals day, Fennessy's
Sunflower had a surprise turn of events. Once
again in the vicinity of Cbuoy, anglerTrish Rhodes
hooked up, but it wasn't a fish that was going to
earn her team official points for this tournament.
"Trish released a blue marlin," says Fennessy.
"The marlin did count toward our point total in
our annual billfish series, and it actually gave us the
lead in that series by 50 points over Oh Suzanna"'
Later in the day, Sunflower anglers, Peggy
Noel and Joan Kupfer each reeled in a wahoo
... I i, the fish weighed 56.9 pounds.
i.1 ll,, Stress Buster's Gal anglers also reeled
in two wahoo weighing an identical 56.9 pounds.
The 11 i of the fish gave Stress Buster the Best
Boat prize for the Gals day over Sunflower by only


24 millimeters, or less than an inch. Two Fer Sure
took third prize with 46.3 pounds of fish caught
by its Gal anglers.
A combined Guy/Gal two-day total of 157
pounds earned Sunflower the Top Boat prize for
the tournament.
In the end, the Guys reeled in 283.6 pounds
of fish to the Gals 183.2 pounds to give the Guys
this year's win.

MORE LADIES NOW FISHING
The Gals have triumphed five times in the nine
year history of the Golden Hook Fishing Club's
Guy/Gal CI, in i to the Guys'four times, so the
ladies are still in the lead.
Nationally and internationally, more women
are iiiII,. "As many women went I iiii in
2006 as went running or jogging," says Mary
Jane ili 111 .... communications director for the
American I .i i II i,.i i Association.


Even so, -1 I. i is still
a male dominated sport.
A. 1 -111-, I to the U.S. Fish &
ii. 11 Service, 75 percent
of the 30 million anglers
who fished in the U.S. in
2006 were men compared
to 25 percent for women.
Men and women get
a little more equal .illIh I
on the global scale. The
International Game Fishing
Association recognizes
both women's and men's
records.
Today, there are many
famous lady anglers who come to the Caribbean
each year to fish. These include Kerri Burrus,

1000TH BLUE MARLIN

BY CAROL M. BAREUTHER, RD


WELL-WISHERS GATHERED ALONGTHE DOCKS
at St. Thomas'American Yacht Harbor marina as the
58-foot Revenge backed into its slip on September
9. Aboard, 81 year-old owner/angler Milton 'Sam'
Jennings had just spent his day catching and
releasing his 1000th blue marlin...and releasing
an additional two later in the afternoon for
good measure.
"We knew when we started the day that there
was a real good chance of catching that 1000th
fish, but we didn't zone in on it to the exclusion of
i, im... I else,' says Revenge Capt. Mike Lemon.
That 1000th fish was what Lemon calls,"just an
ordinary catch. It was small, about 150-pounder,
Sam caught by -ii i I. liii i and released in
about 15 minutes:
Jennings, who hails from Juno Beach, Florida,
started ,.iiiI,.i as a boy on his home state's


inland lakes and streams. He attended law school
in Miami and traded over to salt water i i,11.1
eventually buying his first sports i iii. i boat in
1978 and 11ii. I his sights on marlin. It wasn't
until 1993, after ,. I1, i Lemon during a charter
aboard the late Win i i I's Alchemist, that
Jennings signed Lemon aboard his new vessel
Revenge Yachts' hull number one and started
keeping tally.
Lemon explains,"Sam and I sat down, looked at
the calendar, and planned the i iii. I days. That's
when I realized I had an opportunity to catch more
fish than I ever had before"
The key to success, Lemon adds,"is .* I "i.i. I
the best time to fish. Five days before the moon
and three days after gets about 60 percent of the
best i iii, i days. Of course weather will affect
this too'


Pushing the envelope, Revenge has found
i 1i111i good from as early as the April moon
until as late as October "effectively six to seven
moons, or six or more months out of the year
there can be some spectacular marlin 111 I from
St. Thomas,' Lemon says.
All of Jennings' 1000 blue marlin catches were
released and almost all were caught in Virgin
Islands'waters.
This number's feat, says Lemon, "shows Sam's
true commitment, dedication and enthusiasm for
the sportof I I ii, i He's certainly endured his share
of bad days as well as great ones. He understands
how the -i ii, i can change year to year, month
to month, day to day, and he's iI. II I it well and
excelled over the past 15 summers'

Two THOU WINS ST. LUCIA'S 18TH INTERNATIONAL

BILLFISH TOURNAMENT IN MARIGOT BAY


The Marina at Marigot Bay and the five-star Discovery Hotel welcomed
anglers from all over the Caribbean for the 18th St. Lucia International Billfish
Tournament from September 11-14th. Fishing vessels hailed from Trinidad,
Martinique, Guadeloupe, Barbados, Jamaica and St. Lucia.
Whilst there was no record breaking catch to rival the current record of
7071bs, there was much excitement created after iii-i. i i ''' iII.i vessel
Rum NCoke i.. .1 -l spent six hours i,. i. ii,. I totryto land an; : 'i blue
marlin on the final day of the tournament.
On Saturday the 13th, Two Thou, the winning Iii.ii vessel from
Martinique, hooked a 7001b big blue on the Lay Day. All this serves as proof
that St. Lucia's waters are a I I ii i i ,p )ot"that lies in the migratory path of
the blue marlin.
A Bikini fashion show and Lay Day festivities on the Marigot Bay La Bas
peninsula added to the fun and excitement for the anglers.
Two Thou, captained by Marc Maugee of Martinique, emerged as the
Best Overall boat of the tournament with a total of 1,050 points for the most
released blue marlin and won the grand prize of $5000 and entry to the IGFA
Offshore World Championship. This guarantees them to be the boat to beat
in the 2009 tournament.
With plans already underway for 2009, organizers are i I i.l i a record
breaking tournament with bigger and better prizes. For i. iiii. iii of the

As the requirement for ships to monitor VHF
channel 16 fades into the sunset, the DSC feature
will accelerate the list of items for boaters to be
familiar with. If you want to call someone using
DSC the general procedure is:

Select the channel on which you
wish to converse.

Then select the DSC feature from
the menu list that you wish to use;
individual, group or all ships

J Individual: is for just one
Name/MMSI number

J Group: calls a pre-selected group
of names/numbers, i.e. a fishing fleet,
charter fleet or buddy boats


J All Ships: calls all ships within
range with a DSC radio

* For an individual call this will
either bring up a list of names or
MMSIs that you have already put into
the VHF memory or will allow you
to input the MMSI number of the
vessel to call.

* Select or input the name/MMSI #

* Press the call key and the VHF then
places a silent call on VHF Ch 70
to the vessel/vessels you specified

*This call is received with a series of
tones on the called vessel i.e. their
VHF "rings


*Their VHF switches automatically to
the channel you requested and you
can begin communicating when
they answer.

A group call is made similarly except that you
create a "group" before the call is made. It then
rings on each boat within the group and their
VHFs switch to the channel you have selected.
An "All Ships" call will ring on all DSC-equipped
VHFs within range. It sets the receiving radio to Ch 16
to allow communication ofyour reason fore iiii I- i.e.
this is basicallyjust one step below a"Distress Calli'
All of these are distinct and in addition to
using the Emergency DSC features we discussed
in part one.
Making VHF calls this way removes one more
piece of"clutter"from the normal i, ,i,. i channel,
a boon to fellow boaters. In fact, if all VHF calls
were made this way, Channel 16 would become
truly an uncluttered ii ii 1 1.1 i channel.
It takes a readjustment in your i111i 11.-I to do
this, but once the MMSI numbers of your friends'
boats are input, it takes far less time than i ,ii,,.
on 16 and then moving to another channel. The


32 ALLATSEA.NET NOVEMBER 2008






ring tone is also hard to miss, where a call may be
missed over the noise of engine, wind or stereo.
Another feature is the ability to"poll" (the ability
to ask another DSC VHF to send you its position
coordinates) another vessel's location. It requires
no action on the polled vessel other than the VHF
being on, a GPS input and .. -1.1.- I enabled. This
can be used as a means of keeping track of another
vessel's location or to locate them and is very useful
if the VHF is unattended due to an emergency
condition. Search responders have up-to-date
knowledge of your location without I,. I your
attention. We find it is useful on our tender as
whenever the VHF is on, we can poll it from Swan
Song and know its location, a handy feature if is


missing while we are towing it or perhaps just
m11i I. I it"missing"one day.
A few of the latest ,i. I, 1. I VHFs have DSC
features with built-in GPS which can be a good
way of keeping track or loc ii, I someone useful
if someone is overdue or perhaps you are worried
about them for another reason.
DSC is also a feature on the GMDSS equipment
that ships are required to have operational now.
They are no longer required to maintain a watch
on SSB 2182, nor are the USCG i... Ii both may
for sometime. To my knowledge the ICOM 802
is the only recreational SSB at present that has
this feature. It is operationally the same as the
VHF DSC but has far greater range using the HF


bands. This allows more vessels to be aware of any
emergency condition that may occur.
As ships are no longer required to maintain a
watch onVHFCH 16, howcan wecall themwithout
their MMSI number? This will be explained in part
three of this series when we discuss Automatic
Identification System, aka AIS. _.

IFLO/IRS A JJ/24


BY ROGER MARSHALL


Sy son bought a J/24 in pretty poor condition but he wanted to race it, so we
adopted it as a reconstruction project. The first job was to restore the floors
under the cabin sole. In the early J/24s, the bilge contained vermiculite as a
/ W I filler material. Vermiculite is used in gardening to lighten the weight of the
growing medium and also to absorb water.


Fioure5 Foam in Dlace Finiiw 6


A ... 11 iii,1. hii. 1 material that absorbs water?
It sounds as if somebody really screwed up!
Virtually every J/24 that had vermiculite has had it
removed by now, and this boat was no exception.
But in this case, the job had been done by a true
amateur It looked as if the sump well had been
filled with Bondo or a similar water-absorbent,
non-closed cell foam. Edges were left rough, and
the plywood used for new floors was not marine
grade. In fact, it had almost rotted away.
So our first job was to remove the rotted wood


and the gunk in the bilge. This job took several
hours of chipping with a long-handle, cold chisel.
Eventually the entire bilge was clean and the
floors were ground flush.
Figure 1. The floors in the J/24 before we
started work. As you can see, they are quite rotten
and were easy to strip out. In places the entire

Figure 2. Removing the floors was quite easy.
Smacking them with a hammer destroyed most of the
wood, so it was just a matter i -I i.l 11111 I the pieces out.


The entire removal process took about two hours.
Figure 3. Rotten floors. At the stage shown
here, rotten floors litter the cabin sole because the
wood fell apart during removal.
Figure 4. The floors have now been completely
removed. You can see how the ii. 'ii ,. simply
peeled up from the hull. We ground the area back
to provide a good clean surface for new material.
This took about an hour.
Figure 5. Foam in place. The bilge area in the
J/24 was refilled with high-density foam. Sizing,

oilll, .I and dr iliiii. i the foam took most of a
day. Then we numbered each piece, removed
it, and made sure that i 11i,11 i was clean by
wiping it down with a solvent. We used Epiglas
epoxy thickened to a peanut-butter like paste and
smeared it around the bottom and edges of each
foam piece. The process was rather like laying
bricks. Any voids were filled from the top with a
runny solution of epoxy. The entire structure was
then left to set up.
To prevent the floors from .'iii. again, we
decided to use a marine-grade high density foam
for the filler and floor material. On the J/24 the
stainless steel keel bolts stick up into the sump
area. They could have been removed from the
keel, shortened, and rethreaded, but this seemed
like a time-consuming, expensive job. So we
opted instead to fill the bilge sump with 1-inch
foam bedded in a resin mix.
The foam pieces were carefully cut to fit the
bilge sump. We put compression tubing around
each keel bolt to ensure that it could not pull
i. ...,-il the foam. One well was left for a real
bilge sump, while another well was left for the
keel il 11. I strap. New keel bolt washers were then
made to suit the new floor arrangement. This
work took about four to six hours.
Figure 6. Glass Covering. To prevent any
moisture ingress into voids that might remain in
the foam, we glassed over the top of the bilge,
leaving a recess for the iI. 11 I strap and a sump for
any water that might get inside the hull. In photo

epoxied in place. In (b), despite the sun shining
directly ill..,.il the companionway, you can
see that the bilge and keel area have now been

suit the new bilge sump.These floors were cut from
high-density foam and covered with ii. iii,
before they were set into the hull. We remembered
to cut limber holes in each piece before 1, I i1111.
it. At the stage shown here, the floors have been
tabbed to the hull. Fitting the floors in place took
most of a day. Each one was taped in place, then
covered with two precut layers of 6-ounce woven
roving.The entire job of floor cil ii i. trimming, and
glassing took almost two days to complete. After
the job had set up hard, we spent another two
hours or so i. ., i 111 I up"with a grinder to remove
sharp edges before ii ii, I out the area.

the entire area is painted out with Interlux Epoxy

The final job was to cut a teak and holly sole

liner around the edges. Measuring and clilll,,
the sole took several hours. We coated it with
Ultimate Sole, a high-gloss, varnish-style finish
with low skid properties (www.ultimatesole.com).

less slippery when wet. -

HENRY MENIN, ISAF JUDGE AND UMPIRE


enry Menin has long been a force on the Caribbean racing
scene. At first, this St. Thomas-based sailor campaigned his J/29,
Magnum VI, in many of the major spring regattas, winning the
International Rolex Regatta in 1989. Today, Menin still loves being on
the water-both in the Caribbean and around the world-but it is on
an umpire boat rather than racing yacht. He's risen to the level of the
America's Cup and says there are opportunities for other Caribbean sailors
to pursue the officiating side of sailing.

A
It was prior to moving to St. Thomas in 1980 that Menin got his feet wet
in the management side of "iiiI,. iI started doing some .iii i iii,. i when I
was coaching a small c *1 I i I team in Philadelphia,' he says. "But my
real immersion into ,i *ll I ii I started in St. Thomas. John Nichols, a legend
among race officials in the USA who had retired to St. Thomas, encouraged
me and invited me to do some iiii i iii,. locally. Then he started taking
me to international events around the Caribbean and on the US mainland.
However, while doing that, I continued racing very actively in the Caribbean,
so one activity did not exclude the other"'
Menin's role changed with the America's Cup."I had umpired and served
on the America's cup Jury in 1999/2000. As a result of that experience, I was
invited by John Cutler to join the Oracle BMW AC 1 .11 1l i- in 2001 as their
rules advisor/coach and as their in house umpire. That was a commitment










s r s

www~.gtenacdara~irigftsrivaI cor


that would take me to New Zealand and away from St. Thomas for two years.
At that point, I sold my interest in my ,il .... and i ill, stopped racing
for those two years"
Since 2003, Menin has concentrated more on .i ll 1, 1. particularly
umpiring in match racing, i Ii ... ill he is also an ISAF (International iii,. i
Federation) judge.



Menin says, "A iiiI, judge is a person who knows the Racing Rules of
,nh,. has racing experience and has the appropriate temperament for
making logical and reasoned decisions in an unbiased manner"
1" ,111. I judges i i. Ill sit on a panel with other judges and, after the
racing is finished for the day, they listen to the Protest of boats that feel they
have been fouled during the day's racing," he says."The protest hearings are
mini-trials, where the parties and their witnesses testify before the judges,
after which the judges render a written decision"
In some cases, mostly in the iii -. 1, classes, judges go out on the water
during racing and assess penalties for violations of rule 42 or kinetics, such as
ill. il pumping, ., 'llh,. I ooching and rocking. Menin, for example, officiated
on-the-water at the Optimist World Championships in Cesme, Turkey, this
summer, and headed up an International Jury of ten.

VVI AAI I S N I I'" IR I
An ISAF umpire (called an International Umpire or IU) serves and officiates
at match racing events. Menin explains, "In a match race, only two boats
compete in each race or match. The races are fairly short; just 15 or 20
minutes each. But there are many such races each day during a match-racing
.1 i I many as fifty-five races. If they do a double round robin, which
often happens, there would be about 100 races'
In each match, Menin continues, "there is an umpire boat with two
um pires aboard .ii. ii. I the two c. -il. q '- i I t ill ... i Each um pire takes


36 ALLATSEA.NET NOVEMBER 2008






one of the II .. .. and acts as if he is the skipper of that boat. He talks
constantly with his fellow umpire about whether he is the right of way boat
or if he must keep clear, what his rights are and what his responsibilities are
(must give room, must tack to keep clear, etc.), whether he is iiiii. i. his
responsibilities...and iIi ii i what his next likely moves will be.
"If one of the boats feels it has been fouled, it displays a "Y" I i i (orange
and yellow i II i.. I stripes) and then the umpires must agree on whether a
foul was committed. The umpires will usually know the answer even before
the "Y" I i i is displayed because they have been keeping close tabs on
the action all around the course. The decision is usually given within a few
seconds after the incident and is communicated by the display of a penalty
I i or a green and white I i the latter i.- iI i i no foul,"' he says.
There is no time for the umpires to consult a rulebook or to go into a long
or intensive discussion of the applicable rules. Therefore, they must be very
well-versed and knowledgeable of the racing rules and of the tactics and
strategies of match racing so that they can anticipate the next moves of the
competitors and be in the right position to clearly see the incidents.
So, tosum upthedifferences, ajudgegenerallysitson protest! i n II. i ii ',
racing is finished for the day. An umpire acts on the water and makes instantaneous
decisions during a match race-and generally has no hearings at all.
Menin says, "I got into judging before umpiring was started. Umpiring
began in 1988 at the Congressional Cup in California. I like both activities, but
I prefer umpiring because you are part of the game and are involved in the
action, up close and personal, during the race'
Another point Menin enjoys about umpiring, he says, is that is offers an
II 1 1 opportunity for interaction among competitors and umpires. "Its
very educational for both. We discuss rules and their applications, as well
as tactics and strategy, which help both umpires and competitors to better
understand each other and how the game is being played.'
Judging and umpiring has taken Menin and his wife Fredelle literally
around the world."It enables you to see some wonderful places and to meet
some wonderful and 1 1 1 1',. i people. It definitely broadens your horizons
and gives you a different perspective of the world and how the world sees us.'
On the horizon in umpiring, Menin foresees a greater and greater
emphasis being put on umpire education, particularly with respect to the
tactics and strategy used by competitors in match racing. "This emphasis
is c(. 111i i even with umpires who have already been appointed as
IUs and it is important to have this c(. 1iiio ii. i education to keep up
with developments in the sport since match race skippers are constantly
developing new tactics and strategies:
He adds, "I also see an effort to get more match racing competitors involved
in umpiring. People who have competed as match racers make better umpires'



If you have any interest in judging, Menin says,"letyour local club and/or race
organizers know that you are interested. It does not matter if you have not
judged before. Organizers are always interested in ii.. iii,. i new judges and
giving them judging experience. You will be working with other judges, so
you won't (or shouldn't) be left to work alone.
"You can start with your local club races and work your way up. There are
major Caribbean .1 III .that are anxious to bring newjudges into the fold and
to give them experience. Just let people know you are interested. As with Race
committee work, local clubs should require competitors to serve on the Race
committee or on the Protest Committee at least once every racing season"
If you have any interest in match racing, either as a competitor or an
umpire, contact Menin at hl.menin@gmail.com &

REFLECTIONS ON QUINGDAO

class. For these sailors, dreams of competing in the Olympics turned into reality
in China, bringing great pride to their friends, families-and to readers of this
magazine who have followed their careers.
To wrap up our year long series, "Countdown to "All at Sea's Carol

On the tiio.i side, Aguayo says, 'The Olympics were an extremely

tension in most of the athletes. On the other hand, it was especially nice to
see all the top sailors from the other classes, which I normally don't get to talk
to. There was more mix between classes'
Sailors were only able to complete nine of the 10 races planned, even
after using the two designated rest days, due to ii1 winds. The e h shifty
breeze combined with a strong current created very tough conditions, says
Douglas. "You had to be 100 percent focused all the time about what was
going on' The event proved to be a great learning opportunity.

but it was because of tactical mistakes and not a boat speed issue'
Aguayo says, "Most times, I think I did good because I never gave up
trying to pass boats in any race. But sometimes, when looking at the result, I
think I should have been up a few places higher My worst race was a 38, and
still I ended up 40 because everyone had some good races that moved them
up. In other conditions this would have been very attainable'
He adds,"The i.i. 1 1i.i was ,ii,,. I the windy race on the second to last

by the foreign city, life in the Olympic ill I and
the sheer hype of the Olympics, but they had a
secret weapon: their coach, Luis Chiaparro.
Chiaparro, a native of Uruguay, has been a ,iII i
coach in Bermuda and has been coaching junior
sailors from all over the world. He has seen some of
his Opti kids, such as Barrows whom he first coached
ten years ago, grow up and excel in other boats.


Douglas only learned of his acceptance
within minutes of his arrival in Bermuda to train
with Chiaparro and be a junior ii. ii coach
alongside him for a month. While Peter Douglas,
Greg's father, filled out the paperwork and
made arrangements to accompany his son to
the Olympics, Chiaparro made a proposal to
Alejandro F .. ili i
Would Fi-.ii consider sharing Chiaparro
with Douglas and Barrows during the Olympics?
F .. Ili i jumped at the proposal. The three young
men would have the benefit of a seasoned
coach to help them navigate the excitement of
the Olympics and the demands of such a high
profile regatta.
"It's good to have others to sail with and
to share opinions with. We can test different
sides of the course and the I1 1. i line much


more efficiently with three,' said Foglia during the
Preliminary Series of the Olympic .i I I
The three from different countries were
comforted to hear Chiaparro belt out his classic
phrases during practice, "Bamo Arriba!"and "Go fast
like a fart'The friends also banded .., li i during
meals and other activities in ( u i. i. and during
their visit to iii i for the Opening Ceremony.
Rather than being on their own at their first
Olympics FR.. ili Douglas and Barrows maximized
their Olympic development opportunity. With
one Olympics under their belts, they will be much
better prepared for Weymouth 2012 than most
others their age.
Pleased with the experience, Barrows said,
"This is the most fun ,iii. i you can do. Even if
you are in last, you're close to the best Laser sailors
in the world." -

PRO-F I LE

ST. THOMAS'

NIKOLE 'NIKKI' BARNES
BY CAROL M. BAREUTHER, RD

When St. Thomas' 15 year-old junior sailor Nikole'Nikki' Barnes
emails with friends a few minutes before bed each night,
the locales of these pals sound like the global adventures of
"Where's Waldo."There's Peru,, i1.1 ,ii, I Trinidad & Tobago,
Puerto Rico, Mexico, Ecuador, China, Japan, Australia, New Zealand, South
Africa, France, Italy, Germany, Spain and many more. All of these are friends
m et i,,...li l Id ,.!
Born in September 1993, Barnes got her racing start six months before,
accompanying her mother in utero out on a spectator boat for the
International Rolex Regatta. She took her first swim lesson at age three weeks
and kayaked at age four months, 11. 11 in her mother's front pack.
Barnes started iii i in the junior program at the St. Thomas Yacht Club
(STYC) at age nine. "I saw my brother Rian ii,. i and it made me want to
try. I wanted to be able to beat him"' ,iI,. i lessons in the Optimist 1, ii. ,
turned into a weekly i. 1ii i. iii
"My friends and I would sail around the buoys on Friday nights and see
who could beat who," she says. Columbus Day weekend in 2003 marked
Barnes'first .i 111
"I got second in the Green Fleet and was so happy," she says. "I i,.. ii
'I'm going to get first next year."
Barnes continued iII.Ii lessons and competed in STYC club races.
She also ventured out to compete in the BVI Dinghy Championships,
St. Croix's Valentine Optimist Regatta and Club Nautico de San Juan's
International Regatta, gaining ,iI, i experience and good friends along
the wav


"One of my first memories of iiliiI in a .1 i Il was
d. ,Ii. i out from the beach and straight into a squall," Barnes
tells."I looked behind me and my best friend wasn't there; she
headed back in. I continued out with everyone else. It was fun.
That's when I discovered I really liked racing'
Her first major . ii I was the 2005 Optimist North
American Championships in Tobago.
"I was scared out of my mind,' she says. "I had no idea then
that I'd get to where I was today. But I hung in there. I didn't want
to quit. In the end, I finished every race and beat 20 other kids'
What really led Barnes to the next level, she says, was a
series of clinics and training sessions held on St.Thomas and
Puerto Rico, as well as coaching by, i I Illi .1 'Resano.
Ii really helped us fine-tune the skills we had," she
says, about being a member of the Virgin Islands Optimist
Dinghy Association ,ii i team."First, he made us stronger
We ran like crazy and he built hiking benches so we could
.: .. ~I I, ,.1i our stomach muscles. Then, he filmed us iiII, .I
S We'd watch the videos, look for our weaknesses, and
strategize how to improve. Out on the water, we worked on
boat speed. Argy would come up behind us and suggest
Trying .i i, 1,i. i or he'd ask us what we i .. ii and we'd
Story to i. ~ out how to fix it ourselves. If not, he helped us'
< Barnes I I 1. I success on a large scale was at the 2006 U.S.
Optimist National Championships, held in Sarasota, Florida."I
was really homesick, but I stuck it out" She finished 22nd out
of 350 sailors, ninth in the 10 and 11 year old Blue Fleet and Second Best Girl.
Come the fall of 2006, Barnes and her fellow team members were
training some 22 hours a week under Resano's direction. They traveled to the
Optimist World Championships in Uruguay over the Christmas holidays, the
North Americans and Worlds in 2007, in Mexico and Italy, respectively, and
finally the South Americans in Peru, North Americans in Curacao, and Worlds
in Turkey this year.
Along the way, Barnes progressively improved. Score highlights include 11th
overall and Top North American Girl in Mexico, 15th overall and 2nd Best Girl in
Peru, and 35th overall and 7th Best Girl in Turkey. TheVI Optimist DinghyTeam, of
which Barnes is a member, helped to put the Caribbean on the map in the area
ofTeam Racing, too, scoring top three finishes in several international 1 111
"It's fun to travel," Barnes says. "The only hard part is security. We always
had to explain that we had sails and spars in our tubes, not weapons." At
each destination, Resano coached the kids i,... ll a set plan to acclimate
them to the area.
Barnes explains, "We'd first look at the wind information on the Internet,
ii.i.* iiii or I i l,. i i.l.....i Then, we'd go out before the racing
started and look at the winds over the course. Then on the course, we'd look
at the angle of the committee boat to tell the current. Then, we'd test the
wind patterns and see where the slow patches were. This made us really
prepared by the time the I 11 ,11 I horn blew.'
What has iiII,. i taught Barnes?
"In a way, survival,' she says."The ii,,i i... I is like playing chess. You need to
make quick decisions. I guess you could say iiii,. I is the physical counterpart of
chess' She also enjoys the competitive nature of the sport. "In real life, people
yell at you for being too competitive,' Barnes says, "But in iiII,. i they like it"
What's next? "I'll be i,. I an I-420,"she says,"and also a Club 420 with the
Antilles School iiII. iTeam.'
Barnes' ,'i.. I..,,. for younger sailors? "Never give up even if you want
to,"she says."In the end, if you don't, the results will show.'
She adds, "If you're a girl, don't just think about being top girl at a i i i
Realize thatyou can beat the boys and win the whclI i .-i l ifyou putyour mind
to it. Also, understand that there's ..i i. i special to being a girl. You're a sailor"'-

The Sea Gypsies' Guide to

Global Economic Melt Down

COPYRIGHT 2008 BY CAP'N FATTY GOODLANDER



This has been an interesting time to be cruising
Southeast Asia. I'm constantly asked by the local
businessmen to explain what is happening in
America. Sometimes this isn't easy. They're woefully
uniformed here in Thailand... even on such basic
matters as what free enterprise is.


"Free enterprise is called that," I
patiently explain, "because the
taxpayers of America are free to
pay off the debts of their rich
people! In fact, that's their job,
their reason d'etre!"
"But,' stuttered one of my puzzled questioners,
"isn't private enterprise..."
"Oh," I chuckled. "Don't confuse those two
terms, private and free. Private applies to profits.
Let's say a bond trader at Lehman Brothers gets
paid a million dollar bonus for signing up a shoe
shine boy's .ii. 11i. dollar mortgage to buy a ,iII i
casino in Vegas... that's a private bonus and, thus,
of course... he gets to keep that money... which
is only fair AND the American Way. In addition,
his I ii,,. i. corporate bosses might send him
off on a junket to Monte Carlo for some R&R...
with plenty of pure cocaine, cold caviar and hot
hookers tossed in as added bonus... as a nice,


1i i, ii,, non-monetary way of showing him their
appreciation for his I 1111 I financial efforts.
"Now, let's say for the sake of argument...
ii. .,i.li no fault of the broker... the dumb
shoeshine boy has difficulty managing this new
'income' property and fails to pay back his zillion
dollar mortgage! Why should the broker or his
bosses suffer?
So, it is only natural that the taxpayers...
the low-paid check out counter girls, fast food
workers and the taxi cab operators of America...
take up the slack! And, thus, pay off not only the
( .1 i I I I,. I1,. i m ortgage... butalso the i II I i I,1 i
tab for the coke, caviar and sweat hogs, too!"
"...but aren't those bad debts..." started out
one of the more ii, iii,.i fellows and I had to
quickly nip him in the bud.
...stop right there," I said sternly. "Those
aren't 'bad debts, those are iii. I'.1 I assets' And
taxpayers shouldn't mind paying for them... so
that corporate America can '...get back to work
without undue government interference' and
maintain the status quo."
"...but your system of government..."
"Yes, we have a two-party system," I said,
in, in. .i to remain calm to the face of such
inscrutable ignorance, "because no matter which
party is in power, both groups get to party! That's
what freedom and fat cats are all about... being
free to tell the worker-drones who to pay and
how much!"
By now there was a whole crowd of Asians
III i, I around meattheSea Swine baratYeech
Haven of Phuket. And many of them looked both
puzzled and distressed. I wasn't I iiii ,'I. i I i,
So I raised my voice louder "It's a democracy,
okay?"I shouted,"And in a democracy, every dollar
qets a vote!"


This is one of the reasons I seldom come
ashore during... election years. People can be so
tedious. Some innocents just don't seem to get it.
So I've had to explain the political reality v-e-r-y
s-l-o-w-l-y, in Special El 1ii 1, time and time
again... about why our presidential candidates
both have to raise 66 million dollars a month from
special interests. "They have to raise the money to
buy television ads which show they're beholden
to nobody!"
...one guy must not have understood a word
I said because he started ,111 in i, 11 ..1,, Ii, ,i
about welfare reform.
"Yes," I agreed while trying to hide my
exasperation. "We've made a lot of progress with
welfare reform recently. It used to be if a father
was working two jobs and had two kids and was
11i 1. 111,.i to make ends meet... and his wife got
sick and couldn't go to her job... well, we'd send
him a few pennies to tide him over Not anymore.
Now we know him for what he is... a whiner and
a cheat! Even worse, he might be a pedestrian...
one of those obnoxious, foot-driven slobs who is
always I 1i11. i in the way of limos and loitering
around bus stops... who'd want to financially
encourage a guy like that?"
"...so there's no welfare anymore," asked one
of the Thai dock boys who'd iii .i I to hear my
pearls of economic wisdom being strung ... ii I
in a necklace of fiscal knowledge.
"No, there isn't... on an individual basis. But
we all also know that stable, profitable markets
require steadiness and trust. Let's say, a VP of AIG
makes a million dollars and gets a new Benz every
year Now let's say that some of his decisions make
his corporation's share price drop fifty percent...
should he be penalized ,. I .. II, Why? Doesn't
he still need and expect a new Benz? And might
not the father of the two kids and sick wife enjoy
paying off the share-price deficient by, say, working
18 hours a day in a car wash? So corporate welfare
isn't a freebie... it's a God-given right. And no proud,
patriotic American would ever say a word against it'
"...isn't that trickle-down...
"Yes,"' said."Very I.. ... I Skilled career politicians
know that if birds are starving to death, you can't
just give'em bird seed! No sirree! That won't work.
It would ruin their work-ethic, their peck peck
peck-ability. Instead, you give all rich people in the
world more money and some of them will then
buy i ..... ii .1 I race horses... and said horses
will consume a bit of bird seed in their high
protein, bL. ii, iii. 1 diet... and then the starving
birds can follow behind them... pecking at the,
er... droppings... and, well, I I",.i the birdseed
properly metered!"
"But in a republic..." started the same
i i, .i guy.
"Yes, our system is a republic. That means that we
elect people to represent us. Now, let's be realistic. If

"...well," I said with a sly smile, "never underestimate Dickie! ...remember
when he shot that guy in face... what did the guy do?"
...apologize?" said one of my students who was particularly II I on
current affairs.
"Exactly," I said. "The guy with a face-full of shotgun II i. said, 'Oophs!
Sorry! I goofed and stupidly stuck my face in front of the VP's shot-gun! Please
forgive me!' Now, we've all probably shot a few random people here and
there... but have any of our victims apologized for catching the bullet? No!
That's power, raw power, power WASHINGTON STYLE And that's why he's VP
and we're just a drop in his sea of admirers!"
...so your country's system is different than, say, a communist one...
"Aye, you're i 11 I I it now, Comrade" I gushed."But we're not too rigid or
ideological. For example, during this current financial crisis... we privatized
profit while we socialized debt! That's fair, isn't it? Ying and yang? 50/50? I
mean, even Hugo Chavez would approve!"
"...but the massive size of the bail-out..."chipped in a bare-footed i. I. II, I
monk as he rubbed his shaven head in I. I. II I. 1 "...is it fair that..."
"E II ,I ,I i ,i I points!" I shouted, "Fairness and size! ...very ..... iI
Now, if you guys ever wanna be rich, I suggest you listen up! On the same
day that the Fed announced an 850 million bail-out of AIG and possible
one trillion dollar 'free mountain of money' hand-out for the rest of Wall
Street's I I i ii. i I capitalists... on that very day, a judge in Sheboygan,
'. 11. i 11 sentenced Ryan M ueller .. .... l it) to six years in jail for I 1111. I
$20! The reason? Because Ryan was such a small thinker! He only robbed
20 bucks ONCE from that kid's piggy bank! Contrast this to Wall street, who
11, I I 1. II1, put a trillion dollar, multi-year lien on the same kid's future...
see why one goes to jail and the other goes to St. Barths on vaca?"
"Let me see if I've got this straight," questioned one of the brighter ones.
"There are only a few rich people... too few to equitably share a heavy
financial burden. But there are a LOT of poor folks, so why should they care?"
"...irrefutable logic," I praised. "And I like the implied callousness too! You
see, when a private citizen named George W Bush sat on that Savings-and
Loan board a few years back... and they needed a multi-million bail-out...
he didn't just turn to his super-rich daddy, the Prez... but to his deeper
pocketed uncle, Uncle Sammy!"
People started i 1.1 1,. iIn. first one... then two... then, many! It felt
great... to be able to impart some of the economic wisdom I'd picked up
over the years.
I smiled. They cheered even louder. Finally, one raised his hand and asked
me wistfully, "...do you think that Thailand might... someday... be a world
power too?"
It would have been easy to give them false hope-but I did not.
"No," I said. "I do not... because... well, frankly, because your 1400-year
old system of government makes no sense!" -

Georgia... "I p( liked Atlanto," laments Fatty, '.. but what's next..

n September 26, The Yacht Club at Palmas del Mar inaugurated what
developers say is the first megayacht resort marina in Puerto Rico, at a
reported investment of $40 million. About 35 boats ranging in size from
40 to 120 feet in length were on hand for the inaugural weekend. The 162 slip
marina, located at the outer harbor at Palmas del Mar, Humacao, on the southeast
coast of Puerto Rico can accommodate mega yachts up to 200 feet long.
Puerto Rico's Director of Tourism and Assistant Governor were in
attendance at a press conference with the President of Palmas Del Mar, Inc.,
Jamie Morgan, and The Yacht Club's Luis Muniz and Juan Boschetti. All spoke
about the importance of nautical tourism and the economic impact for the
local economy. Additional opening events included a media cruise on a
private yacht to nearby Vieques and a party on Saturday night under the
pavilion and tents on the club house grounds.
"The Yacht Club at Palmas del Mar opens Puerto Rico to a new kind of
tourism that will generate new opportunities and jobs,' said Muniz, President
of PDMYC INC., developers and owners ofThe Yacht Club. "It also requires that
we develop new skills, talents and amenities in a type of tourism that has gone
largely untapped but that can generate many new economic opportunities'
In a press release, the developers reported that the construction of the
marina created 250 jobs and its operation will generate 150 jobs. The Yacht


Club will be managed by Marina Management Services, Inc. (MMS), an
international management and consulting firm based in Boca Rat6n, Florida
that has operated marinas for over 20 years. Tim Keogh, Director of Business
Services Regional Manager, will be in charge ofjumpstarting the operation.
"Several boats are staying full time in the marina which has all the utilities,
including power, water, and in-slip pumpout," reported Keogh. "We are
expecting to have cable TV, internet, the fuel dock and in-slip fueling by the
end of middle of November The club house building which will house the
restaurant, bar, a lounge, and boutique retail will be completed by January.
"It's an exciting opportunity to open up the southeast coast of Puerto
Rico to the cruising, charter, and transient yacht market," Keogh said.

came into play.
The British Royal Navy became the largest
investor in the study of compass ,ili iii As
the original "dry card" compasses were not stable
enough for fast, iron ships, the modern day liquid
filled (spirit) compass bowl evolved. The non
r Ii. I 1i housing for 11. iii i the gambled

compass is called a binnacle.
The binnacles are also incorporated for the

proper placement of the corrector magnets for
the horizontal irons and vertical irons. It was up
to the Compass Adjuster to place these correctors
in the proper position to neutralize the local
r i.. ii 11 attraction around the compass card.

A great uncle, Victor A. Gustin, taught Murray
the art of compass I,1 1 11i. The first compass
adjuster in the USA was a- c pi 1, 11 by the name
of John E Hand. He taught his son, John L. Hand,
who taught Victor Gustin, who opened a nautical
instrument repair shop in Philadelphia in 1954
where Murray started his apprentice in 1973.
where Murray started his apprentice in 1973


. i i.i .


Davis belonged to the Philadelphia Maritime Society, an association of ship owners, agents and
marine professionals, with most of the members being captains. As Murray was not a captain, they
called him the"Master of Deviation"
The first ship that Murray went on was Global Explorer, built by Howard Hughes, and operated by the
CIA. Publicized as a seabed-mining vessel for its cover story, Global Explorer actually picked up a sunken
USSR submarine off the ocean floor. Since then Murray has been on every type of vessel n ii. ih. i
aircraft carriers and every Navy ship sea trial that went out of Philadelphia from 1973-1986.
I ii,'. i a change of scenery, Murray moved to the Virgin Islands in 1991. He not only set up his
compass I. II~ i I,. i business but also met his bride-to-be, Margot. They married in 1994 and live on their
34'lobster boat, Splinter Beach.
Davis is an avid sailor and has been the fleet captain for the Caribbean 1500 since its inception in 1990.
He also has a band, .... II, called "The Barefoot Davis Band"and a popular CD called "DayDreamin"
In this modern day, many vessels rely on a GPS, but this only gives you your direction that the vessel
is 1 1 i,. I over the ground, and not the vessel's actual ,. I i I Vessels should have a reliable working
compass on board in order to determine the vessel's actual I. i take it from a compass adjuster...
and "Master of Deviation'" _

20 years cruised the Caribbean. She is the author of the Ship to Shore Cookbook Collection and a regular contributor

ST. CROIX VALENTINE REGATTA
CHOSEN AS OPTIMIST QUALIFIER

THE ST. CROIX VALENTINE REGATTA WAS AGAIN CHOSEN AS ONE OF THE QUALIFIERS
FOR OPTIMIST NORTH AMERICAN AND WORLDS AT THE FALL VIRGIN ISLANDS SAILING
ASSOCIATION EXECUTIVE MEETING. TO QUALIFY FOR BOTH THESE EVENTS, YOUNG
SAILORS MUST COMPETE IN AT LEAST TWO OF THE THREE QUALIFYING REGATTAS:

Discovery i l i Ponce, Puerto Rico, November 1 2, 2008
SSt. Thomas MLK Regatta, January 17-18, 2009
St. Croix Valentine .- il i 21 22 February, 2009

For those sailors who compete in all three iil the best two of their
three scores are i. 111 .1
"We are I,,iii I to once again be an Optimist 1Iii ,I i I iii. says
Karen Stanton, regatta organizer "Ronnie Ramos of Ponce is returning as our
PRO and planning to get 12 races off during the two days of competition.
We are excited to have Ronnie's training and experience available to our local
sailors; our goal is to raise the bar!"
The St. Croix Yacht Club is an ideal venue for small boat racing. The
courses are set off the Club beach; sailors can come to the Club house
for lunch. The Valentine regatta is run simultaneously with the St. Croix
International i. ill 1 iI- the young and the young-at-heart sailors to
mix continuously during the two day event.
This year, the race committee plans to display the Optimist results directly
from the signal boat, just like the big boat i -iiii. Optimist prize giving
precedes the International prize giving, with the over all Optimist winner on
the giant scale for his or her weight in sports drinks-while the winner of the
adult i 11 1 weighs in to take home Cruzan Rum.
As well as competitors from Puerto Rico, the USVI, BVI and the US, St.
Croix's Frederiksted Community .. 11. i program has their best graduates
fully sponsored to compete. Last year, D.J. Lorshbaugh, one of these west
end youngsters, was the winner of the Green fleet, with a total of nine
competitors. The Advanced i. 1 ill, a fleet of 19, was won by Ivan Aponte of
Puerto Rico, with Nikki Barnes of St. Thomas in second.
For more information, please visit the St. Croix Yacht club website (www.

More than 925 yachts and 4,500 sailors have participated in the Caribbean
1500 since its inception in 1990, and between 50 and 60 boats are expected
to depart this month for the annual rally to the Caribbean.
What's new this year? The Virginia-based Cruising Rally Association
announced in late September that the event will add a competitive class for
performance cruisers to expand the racing portion of its event.
I I ...1,. ii. to a request from some of our veteran rally participants,"
explained Founder and President Steve Black, "we are i. iii. II a level of
more intense competition for low handicap performance cruisers who join
the event. This year, we will have our Rally and Cruising (non-competitive)
classes, as always, but will add a Performance class.
"( ii 1111 11. I boats that have already signed up for this year's Caribbean
1500 include a Swan 56, aE l ii.l I Rassy 62, a Macgregor 65, a Fa, i ,. I i
Santa Cruz 52... all veterans of our previous iili 'said Black
Also new, the Caribbean 1500 scheduled simultaneous I iiI ..,
November 2 with the addition of Charleston, South Carolina to it' ii .iiI i. ..i
departure point of Hampton, Virginia.
"Over the years, we have discovered that boats from the Soutl, I i, I n
hesitant to sail north around Cape Hatteras tojoin us for the start in, i i I I ..
said Black. "In addition, some boats under 40 feet may have a I ii 1i11
passage if they join the Charleston start. The Hampton and Charli i .., i I
will converge simultaneously on our destination in the Caribbean I 1.. iI
post-event activities .. i i"
Black says that the Caribbean 1500 retains some of the c ''i. 1111i
elements of traditional ili .... races, but offers social, educal..i ii ,I
technological enhancements that broaden the appeal of th( li i'
couples and families, as well as racers-both experienced and fir I 11...
Prior to the start, the 111 i i|. 1i i l ... i l, l I in Hai, l i.i .II
Charleston for several days of safety inspections, workshops ari i 11ii
*i i l, before embarking on the passage to the Caribbean.


Over 10,000 website visitors each day will monitor the progress of the
boats in the rally. With wireless transponders on each yacht, positions will
be updated via satellite every four hours. Each boat's track will be displayed
on the Caribbean 1500 website (www.carib1500.com) using software
customized to incorporate features from Google Earth. The transponder
program is sponsored by Davenport & Company, LLC.
Black founded the Cruising Rally Association in 1990, and he now manages
a year-round calendar of offshore cruising iii and iii,.i I symposia. Over
750 cruisers and future cruisers attend the CRA events each year Black has
sailed in all parts of the Atlantic, 1, Iil. m. I three solo transatlantic races
and more than 40 iii and served as executive director of the US ni I

Letter from Antigua


FROM JOLYON BYERLEY


l.1i *, i.i. |li-r Cal' arld Ir c ettle ....


imagine how surprised I was when just the
other day I read Peter Muilenburg's piece
about his Schipperke (Belgium Barge Dog,)
Santos. (Editor's note: Readers will find the
article in the September 2008 issue of All at Sea
or online at www.allatsea.net.)
Maybe it's because that where ever you go in
the world, you seldom bump into a Schipperke!
i1 i I 1 il, we are having the very devil of a time
in 11. ii. 1i a new puppy of the same breed for
ourselves! Our first Schipperke came from Don
Street who was in Grenada at the time, and this
little black ball of fur turned out to be a really
wonderful dog who spent all his iiiii.i time
iiiii. I proud and alert alongside me at the helm
of our lovely, big schooner LordJim.
When we sold Lord Jim about seven or eight
years later, we found a house on the banks of
El ih I, Harbour, i,' ii. iii, and little Kettle took only
a few days to acclimatize to not being surrounded
by water.

Aboard any boat he was as sure-footed
as a mountain goat. Only once had he been
hurled over the side by a big cl "i,.I wave
right at the entrance of El i ii Harbour. But our
little Schipperke was made of sterner stuff! He
somehow swam i.i.. 1ii the surf to Fort Barclay,
then pelted down to where John Bentley was
working in the Dockyard. John was soon on his
hand-held radio to us onboard Lord Jim. We came
about faster than a London Taxi at the height of
rush hour. It goes without saying that with happy

hearts (perhaps even the odd tear) we regained
our still drenched crew member who, as you
would probably understand, seemed to be really
glad to be back on board.
For a couple of days he was not his usual
exuberant self, however it didn't take him long
to get back to normal. If i1 liii.i he became
more dashing, and took to c i ii. I out along the
bowsprit with his little legs wrapped around the
varnished sprit. During all of this he would lie there
grinning like mad and barking at the i 11i. i fish. It
wasn't long before we had to stop him
doing this death-defying trick right in
front of the charterers.
But about this time we all moved
4 C ashore to our house in E iii Ii Harbour
where Kettle would sit on the dock
and welcome all new arrivals to the
harbour with a .11 of ... II
1.- barks. Our little Schipperke quite liked
household life and in his old age,
he would sometimes dream about
his sea faring days and of a II.. II
dolphin which always came to meet
him when our big schooner, .1 iiii I,
a mile or so of El hi Ii Harbour.
Then, one day we came home
only to find Kettle was not there to
meet us. He was down by the water's
edge with his paws in the water and
a big smile on his face. I think perhaps
he was looking for his friend the
dolphin-and he passed away. _@


Jol Byerley arrived in Antigua in 1957 to
captain Commander Vernon Nicholson's
schooner Mollihawk. Two years later he
bought the first of his many own yachts,
Ron of Argyll. She was followed by the
73ftAlden gaff schooner Lord Jim. In 2004
he was awarded a G.O.M. by the Governor
General of Antigua and Barbuda for long
service to yachting.

23rd Atlantic Rlly for Cruisers


23rd Atlantic Rally for Cruisers


orld Cruising Club officials report that they are"justifiably
proud of the international interest being shown in
its ARC Racing Division'" The event's 23rd edition will
feature racing 34 yachts out of a total anticipated entry
of 225 in this year's ARC.
The entire ARC fleet departs from Las Palmas on November 23rd on a
2,700 nautical mile passage to Rodney Bay in St. Lucia.
While ,,ii. I i.,i 11 ii, a fun rally for cruising yachts, the ARC does have
a more serious Racing Division, run under the auspices of the Royal Ocean
Racing Club (RORC). Yachts in the Racing Divisions are not permitted to use
their engines for propulsion (unlike the cruisers), hi ii... .i il use of autopilots
is il.. .
The Racing Divisions have this year attracted entries from as far afield
as Australia and the USA whilst also ii .. iii,.I to skippers from Ireland,
Germany, the Netherlands, Monaco, Spain, France, Italy and the UK. Yachts
compete using the IRC ,I,. i and RORC i iii..1h. .are awarded for 1st, 2nd
and 3rd placed yachts in each IRC Division.
The racers are split into two divisions by size- Division II Racing, for yachts
between 8.23m to 18.29m (27ft to 60ft) and Division VII Invitation Racing,
for yachts greater than 18.29m. There are further sub divisions into classes
by TCF band il I. 1,. 11,.1 in the numbers c. -IL 1 Ii i in each division. The
competition for 2008 has to date attracted yachts ranging from an Elan 37
(1 1.16m) up to a Swan 76 at 23.10m -.iii I. 1 11H
The ARC Racing Divisions were introduced into the ARC in 1989.
Both Racing Divisions are run under the auspices of the Royal Ocean
Racing Club (RORC) and completion of the ARC in one of these two divisions
meets the offshore racing qualification necessary for RORC membership.
As part of the redevelopment of Rodney Bay Marina, the ARC finish
location in St. Lucia, the entrance channel has recently been dredged to 14


feet (4.25m) improving access for the larger race yachts which previously had
to anchor off. Now all 1 1 'ii i I yachts will be able to dock at Rodney Bay
to celebrate their Atlantic race.
A full program of social activities welcomes arriving yachts and is
organized by the World Cruising Club, Rodney Bay Marina, and the St. Lucia
Tourist Board. -

THE COMPANYTHAT DEVELOPEDYACHT HAVEN
Grande at St. Thomas is careful to say that its
reconstruction of Rodney Bay Marina in St. Lucia
will be modest by comparison.
International Global I iiii ,l acquired Rodney
Bay Marina in 2007, from the estate of founder Arch
Marez, who died in 2005. Under IGY's plan, Rodney
Bay will be able to accommodate 32 megayachts
of up to 250 feet along with more than 200 smaller
yachts inside its hurricane hole basin.
Rodney Bay's new owner retained Marez'
prot6eg, Cuthbert Didier, as marina manager. An
influential St. Lucian, Didier represents the marine
side of the island's effort to brand itself as the
luxury destination of the Southern Caribbean;
he's an advocate for the y,, ill,.i community
and development-as long as the latter is both
sustainable and brings better education and jobs
to ordinary St. Lucians.
"We are not going to be Yacht Haven Grande
here," Didier said in September during a tour of
Rodney Bay aboard his Sunseeker motoryacht.
"We're still going to be a down-home island
marina, but with the same level of service as Yacht
Haven Grande. While we are catering more to
megayachts, we are still going to be St. Lucia'"
In this, Didier is hewing the company line as
well as expressing his personal beliefs. Rodney
Bay Marina has been the finish line for the past
18 ARC transatlantic rallies. The Atlantic Rally for

Cruisers is a 2,700-mile ocean crossing event that
brings more than 230 European ill ...I to the
Caribbean each year. Obviously, i i I 11 I| i ,
for cruising sailors are distinctly different from
those of megayacht owners and crews, so IGY is
I., .i 1,. I the word that despite its multi-million
dollar transformation, the marina will continue to
welcome this important element of the Rodney
Bay brand.
A 1.. Im. I to Didier, the marina's new I. ii,. I
docks will be ready in time for ARC sailors, who get
under way from the Canary Islands in November
and begin arriving at Rodney Bay an average of 14
to 21 days later Megayacht berths will be ready for
occupancy early in 2009.


Rodney Bay will become the second big-boat
facility on the island. The Marina at Marigot Bay
can accommodate several megayachts on its docks
in Med-moor fashion, in a 11 mi. I reminiscent of
Tahiti. Besides the view, advantages of a layover
here include ii .11 distance access to amenities
at the Discovery at Marigot Bay resort, which
boasts a spa, pools, boutique shopping and one
of the island's best chefs. _-i

YACHTING COMMUNITY IN

CARRIACOU RAISES ANOTHER

$17,000 FOR THE CHILDREN


D


The fund is an informal, voluntary group comprised of individuals from i iI I yachts, their friends
and families back home, and concerned local business people in Carriacou. CCEF had its beginnings in
1997 when a group of cruisers in Tyrrel Bay for i 1 I. i ii I .. I i 1 for a potluck BBQ prior to the
start of the Carriacou 1 11, i Festival. At that time, there were no more than fifteen 1 111. I yachts at
anchor. Through word of mouth, the total experience of Carriacou Regatta has spread and the number
of yachts continued to increase-to as many as 90 1 I1 I yachts.
In 2000, a group of cruisers discussed a way to demonstrate appreciation and thanks to the people
of Carriacou for their iI i.iim, and held its first benefit auction. A number of worthy causes were
discussed to receive proceeds and the group chose the education of Carriacou children.
Since that time over $86,000 has been raised to assist children in their mainstream I ... in. i from
pre-primary, iii... i i primary, secondary and post secondary levels. With this money, needy children
are provided with school uniforms and supplies, hot school lunches ("Meals from Keels"), and full tuition
and a book stipend at the Carriacou campus of T A. Marryshow Community C .i i This year CCEF
will be sponsoring six students at TAMCC. In addition, iii... .iii a matching funds program, CCEF has
assisted two primary schools in Carriacou to upgrade the wiring and purchase air conditioners for their
computer labs.
It is the hard work of many volunteers i.i .,i. I.'i ..11 the year that culminates and boils down to two or
three days of activities in August. Throughout the year, cruisers are I.,i i,.1 the word about 1 ii1 ,
others are making items for the craft table or c. ii 1,,. I items for the auction, and many people who
are not able to attend Regatta are dropping off contributions at the Yacht Club as they pass iii... ii.
Carriacou and others emailed pledges of money.
In addition to the auction, other fund raising activities this year included a silent auction, the Welcome
BBQ, a dominoes tournament, book swap, a craft table ofjewelry and other handmade goods contributed
by the many artisans aboard the 1 Im i yachts, and a table of those treasures of the bilge that we all have
on board. Sincere thanks go out to everyone who participated this year and in the past. 9-

to enjoy the great racing conditions and famous party-loving hospitality.
Another ,i 1i.i change which will encourage yachtsmen to come
and participate in the Grenada iii,. i Festival is a new initiative c( Ii ,. I a
'Southern Caribbean Regatta Circuit'to kick off 2009 in the Caribbean. The
Festival will nowtake place between the Carriacou Regatta (14 18 January),
moved from its traditional pre Christmas dates, and the newTobago Carnival

SCULPTOR OF THE SEA


DIMITRIOS DEMU

BY NANCY TERRELL


One of the most delightful
aspects of foreign travel is the
discovery of massive talent
in remote locales. Such a
place is the Museo Dimitrios
Demu in Lecheria, Anzoategui,
Venezuela. Here is a museum of such
diversity that it almost takes your breath
away. The locale is the home, now turned
into a museum, of Dimitrios Demu, one of
the leading sculptors of Venezuela, who
was born in Macedonia, Greece in 1920 and
died in Venezuela in 1997. The museum,
comprised of some 3200 square meters
of art, brings together in a permanent
display most of the sculptor's smaller
works starting from the time he arrived in
Venezuela in 1965.


Demu, locally called Taki, was an international
sculptor who was a great lover of the sea and
crafted enormous stainless steel structures showing
his awe of water, i. iii and movement. Of particular
interest to me is his large sculpture of a Mermaid,
which is housed in its own circular room, within
the museum. The Mermaid was sculpted in 1985
and weighs approximately 80 kilos of stainless
steel. As you walk into the darkened room this
large sculpture picks up 'i.1ii from well-placed
recessed 'i. 1 i. i I w which 1,11. 11 ii its .1 i i Ii I,. I
and movement in space. Steel sculptured fish
surround her in protection.
The Mermaid is hollow with the exception of
the breasts which each weight 10 kilos of stainless
steel. It was crafted using ribbons and threads
of stainless steel applied much in the same way
as paper mache except that it was welded. In
this way, Demu suppressed the notion of weight
and the lovely sea maiden looks as i. ., il she
is actually moving ii. ., Ili the water All of his
sculptures dance, they move, and touching them is
encouraged. Children were stroking the mermaid
as I i11 I i i. il., I the exhibition. They seemed
to identify with the sea around them even i .., I. i
they understand that a mermaid is fantasy.
Demu had an 1.1 I im.i life. In 1929, at the
age of eight, he left Greece with his parents to
settle in Cavarna, Romania. In 1939 he attended the
Academy of Fine Arts in Bucharest, from which he
graduated in 1944. He was invited to have his first
individual exposition in 1946 in Bucharest where
critics stated, "He tries to give his sculpture an
internal energy, a movement intended to express
ii ii-iii and longing." In 1949 Demu won Ist
prize for his bust of the Russian poet, Alexander
Pushkin, which is housed in the Pushkin Museum
in Leningrad today.
,' i,....- ii not a communist, Demu became
famousas i ... i sculptor who received 1st prize
for his Monument of Stalin, which was erected in
Bucharest in 1951 and was destroyed in 1958 when
the "DeStalinization Movement" began. A copy of
the bust is housed in Demu's museum today.
In 1965 Demu moved to Lecheria, Venezuela,
where his brother Nicolas lived. This move to South
America exposed him to the colors and warmth of


the sea; he is quoted as saying,"The sea of Lecheria
ends nowhere; this air that never stops is endless'
Much of his art from this period is entitled 'Art in
Motion' "Movement, as in the sea, is the basis of life
-without it there is no life. This is why my sculpture
incorporates both movement as well as equilibrium.
I have freed steel, iron and bronze, along with my
anxiety, fears and dreams, into a torrent of water
which flows. My sculptures are made up of volumes
of space. There is not art without poetry and for me
poetry is the happiness of love and space'
Hisenormous sculpturesare place i i,,. iii. .111,
both public and private spaces within Venezuela
airports, parks and commercial properties-but
my favorite will always be his Mermaid. To me, she
is the essence of gracefulness in water. _

or 2008, it was only
veteran Wim van der
Gulik who was able
to mingle among the
72 participants from
all over the world.
Van der Gulik was not the only
sailor from Curacao present, but
also represented all islands of
the south and east Caribbean.
II uii.i- the US in his RV,
accompanied by his wife Gonny,
S' I it was easy for him to make a
stop in the beautiful state of New
York and test his skills i. I i,
world's best Sunfishers, as he has

ii.e i past his seventieth
birthday it was quite an achievement to sail and finish all twelve races, which
he did! Van der Gulik, 1,11i, .I 479 points, worth a 53rd place. Paul Foerster
from the USA was crowned the new world champion.
In Curaiao the Sunfish sailors who stayed at home were preparing for the
local championship at the same time. After two weekends and eight races
S,1. i Schneider is the new champion.
Schneider recaptured the 1i 1i. ... title after 27 years.
"Is it a Guinness world record?" asked race assistant Alex Roose at the
prize giving ceremony on September 14th at organizer Theo Frerik's Pro Sail
Curanao clubhouse. Maybe it's not, but remarkable it is, for sure!
In 1981, at the age of 18, Schneider won the local battle for the Sunfish
crown for the first time and in 2008 he did it again, I. i i. I his second title at
age 45. In the years between he worked, lived and sailed in the Netherlands,
being the moving spirit of the Dutch Sunfish Association. Recently Schneider
came back to his roots where his Sunfish career started: Curagao.
"It was not easy' says Roose. "A mixture of very experienced sailors with
several young and talented ones provided plenty of competition.' The
Sunfish, sometimes called the "old age" boat in Curacao, has changed its
name to be an "all age" boat: the 2008 winner is in his forties, the runner
up Ard van Aanholt only 14, while number three, the experienced four
time national champ Niek Kort, is in his fifties. Among the 26 participants
in the championship, there was an age difference of 59 years between the
youngest and the oldest sailor!
For 34 consecutive years the championship has been held in "Spanish
Waters,"' where Randall Swan triumphed in 1986 in the Sunfish senior
Olympics. Winds of 20 25 knots are common all year long, but in September
it can differ. And it did! i. i,-I.. I ,II the races are held during two weekends
with totally different weather conditions. This year was no exception.
During both weekends, four long races and four so called short track
races were sailed. The average of two short tracks ... I i I do count as
one long race. In fact six long races are I. iii. .- I to the total. For the youth,
a "sunfish double" class is 11.. I Maximum age is 14 and the combined
weight is not ,II. I to pass 90 kg/198 lbs.
The Sunfish spirit once again showed to be very much alive and
continues to be the largest one design fleet as well as the Optimist. With the
participation of very talented young sailors, the future of the class looks bright
in Curacao. There could be a 1.i11,1i ...ii change next year during the worlds
2009 in Nassau, Bahamas. Forget about Wim, Niek and Dolf-but watch for
Ard, Kevin and Alexandra, and all the other young Curagao talents -_

It was a spectacular sight to see the kettle of F 1. 11 l I Tropicbirds c( ii i
high above the bay at Little Tobago Island. In the blink of an eye we heard
air ii 1. ii,. i as a 1111i 11 Frigatebird dove upon a Tropicbird. The steep
dive ended with the Frigatebird grabbing the Tropicbird's tail and giving it a
firm shake. My first i .11. ii was that tropicbirds were too large to be a prey
item for the Frigatebird. As we watched the dramatic scene, it dawned on us
that the Frigatebird was not after the tropic bird; instead the Frigatebird was
trying to I I ii i tropicbird to regurgitate its stomach contents in midair. We
were watching kleptoparasitism.
Kleptoparasitism is I ii,1. i food from other birds and is not the only way
Frigatebirds feed themselves. Frigatebirds opportunistically take chicks out
of seabird nests or grab hatching sea turtles. They also fish by skimming the
surface and grabbing fish just under the surface. They are often seen behind
i, 1,1i i boats i, i .i .11, i for fish or offal thrown over by the fisherman.
Have you ever watched a Frigatebird fly? They are the ultimate ~li1 i
Frigatebirds are said to have a greater wing span to body weight ratio than any
other bird, ii. i them to soar for days with little energy expenditure.
Frigatebirds cannot swim, and il ii. i on land or taking off from the
water is quite difficult. Their long, forked tails allow these aerial masters to
turn, duck and dive in order to rob the prey from other seabirds. In ii. liI the
forked tail often will appear as one long pointed tail.
Adult male ', 1111i 11 Frigatebirds are all black with a red gular, or throat
pouch, that is inflated during the breeding season to attract a mate. The gular
pouch is rarely seen outside of breeding season. Adult females are black with
a white breast and the immature birds have a white head and breast. During
i i season, males inflate their gular pouches until they look like red, heart
shaped balloons. Courtship is a noisy affair with the males making a rattle or
drumming sound with their gular pouches, clacking their bills and ii .i i, i their
extended wings. Females e 11 .... 1 i1 i, courtshipchaos -' ii,. i 11, i ii' -i..
to the males 'i 1 i i the greatest show of noise and largest gular pouches.


Frigatebirds nest colonially. A rough nest is constructed in low trees or
on the ground on remote islands. A single egg is laid each breeding season.
The '. 111ii 1i Frigatebird is found in the Caribbean and along the coasts of
north and South America. Worldwide, there are five species of Frigatebirds. The

At Iquitos, the IIi, growing river turns to the East, where it is joined by the Rio Napo from
Ecuador, and crosses into the state of Amazonas in Brazil. Now known as the Solimoes River, it travels

River at Manaus, flow side by side; the two colors visible from the air as well as from land and boat.
Before reaching the Atlantic Ocean, the Amazon isjoined by approximately 500 additional rivers with
headwaters in Bolivia, Columbia,
Guyana, Peru, Suriname, Venezuela,
northern most Brazil, and Ecuador.
Among these 500 tributaries the

About one million miners work
along the banks of the Rio Tapajos,
using mercury to remove the gold. During IsII. scientists found high mercury levels in every fish pulled
from the river, in all the river sediment, and in the tissues and hair of everyone living along the Tapajos.
A .- -. III,. I to Dr. Donna Megler from the Institute of Science and Environment at the University of Quebec in
Montreal, studies she conducted seem to indicate the contamination did not come solely from mining.
The Amazon River Basin covers more than 44% of the total land mass in South America and within
the Basin lies the Amazon Rainforest which covers about one .ini. I 1 acres. A hectare (2.471 acres) of
undisturbed rainforest contains an average of 750 species of trees, over 1,500 species of plants, and
untold birds, reptiles, insects, and mammals. One in ten of the world's known species of plants, animals,
birds, and insects live in the Amazon Rainforest and cannot be found anywhere else on earth.
The Amazon Rainforest produces 20% of the world's oxygen. The Amazon River carries approximately
20% of the world's freshwater Over 120 prescription drugs used worldwide are derived from plants
found in tropical rainforests. The U.S. National Cancer Institute has found 3,000 rainforest plants with
some can( I i. iI I properties. And yet, only about 1% of the plants found in the Amazon have been
tested for medicinal properties even i .., ll the I,. i.i ,..1., peoples of the Amazon are known to

world with a total I,. i of over 4,000 miles. In addition to being the longest, it is also the widest and the
deepest; ranging from seven to 28 miles wide during the rainy season with an average depth of 131 feet.
When the Amazon River reaches the Atlantic Ocean it spews forth between 200,000 and 300,000 cubic
meters of freshwater per second per second!, making the Amazon's outflow more than the combined
total of the next nine largest rivers in the world. The force behind that outflow carries the freshwater many

From medieval times his ancestors had been
bred for service afloat and he was born ready and
eager-he didn't have days off during which it
"wasn't his job," or sick days, or personal leave or
emergency family .i -ii. i ,l. i III." i watch,
,11 i,. i off and . ,11 i the alarm- work was
his reason for being. Santos'working day started
at the crack of dawn. At least it did during
laughing gull season.
Visitors from the north say we have no seasons
but one sure sign of our spring is the return of the
laughing gulls. These East Caribbean gulls are
r,. .,1111 i like their drab, lumpish northern cousins.
Laughing ,ill. are small and pristine-crisp studies
in black and white with bellies of fresh snow, heads
of jet black and uppers of nimbus gray. They are
seafarers and migratory wanderers; they fly south
to Brazil for their winter bivouac. Then, after a six
month silence, early on an April morning, a familiar
raucous cry registers i.1. .. -ill the I iii. I fog of
sleep-the laughing gulls are back.
For a few days or a week, only loners straggle
in, outriders and scouts; and then suddenly the
whole laughing gull nation appears en masse
and for the next half-year, the wild, free sound
of their lunatic laughter pervades the harbor.
They take up their usual posts, on buoys, rocks,
and especially unused boats, 1, 1,. ii. i. ilii ii
which they soon foul with their droppings.
A charter boat cannot have dung in its i II.
and Santos'first order of business was to keep ours
free of ~ Iill We would wake up in the morning
to a low growl directly above us on the after deck.
Santos knew not to bark before we rose unless the
situation were dire and immediate, and he also
knew that mere barking wouldn't do the job-the
i, ill. were brazen and canny and wouldn't move


til they had to. The ii -. ii., was normally tied too
far astern for him to jump, so Santos would wait
lying on the afterdeck next to the tiller arm, his
head between his paws. He would watch intently
and keep up a sputtering, muted 1.. i -Il a shift in
the fitful harbor breeze brought the iii ii. i close
enough for him to suddenly spring up, 1, 11,i i. I in
triumph, feigning a leap. The ill. would shriek,
and take to the air-grudgingly.
Santos rarely actually jumped into the dinghy,
because then he would be stuck in it, bobbing
around, marginalized, til someone lifted him back up.
When we got back to the Virgin Islands, we
entered the charter business, taking tourists out
for a day of iiii,.I and i ... I iii. i day that
Santos dominated. Breath was clearly his boat and
by the end of the afternoon, people would take
leave of him with a certain awe.
A lot of the charter business is social and in
this the little dog easily equaled any human crew.
One of the first, and most important, jobs of the
day was breaking the ice between the guests
who often were complete strangers to each other.
Early one morning a full boatload of passengers
was congregated on the narrow, antiquated Coral
Bay dock, iiiii.i I was in a jam because on the
way in to fetch them, the outboard had given
a sodden cough, stopped, and now wouldn't
start-water in the carburetor.
The tourists were I 111, i 'i I.1 They hated
being made to wait. Their time was precious
quality time-and being herded '.. ii, I like
sheep in a chute didn't make them happy. Santos
saved the day. He had been doing his morning
rounds-making his markafresh, checking atSkinny
Legs for scraps, *.. ii i I the other animals. He ran
backtocatch ii im1i. i i /thatdeparture wasn't


imminent, and peeled off with a flurry of good
natured barking after a rooster It flew to a tree, the
swift little dog snapping ii11 1 11, under it.
Having got everybody's attention, he moved
to his main act, a furious charge at a troop of
peacefully-grazing donkeys, barking insolently like
he had the king's commission in his pocket to
disperse this rabble at once. These were the same
donkeys who regularly browsed ii ..... i i the dock
environs, keeping an eyeon i 111. and they seen
this absurd show more than once-many times
more than once. A young donkey might snort and
stamp its hoof, another i ii11 i iii leg ii 111i 111
liketherewas i,11, 11. i unsanitary underfoot, but
the rest totally ignored him, their body language
.i ... i1, i a wearied, scornful "whatever..!" Then
he turned and, with all eyes upon him, made his
triumphal entrance onto the dock.
Until they saw his face, most of the passengers
weren't sure he was a dog; from a distance
he looked like a coked-up hedgehog or some
offbeat cross between a Tasmanian devil and an
Amazonas peccary...but the moment he danced
up to the dock, alert, savvy, confident, with his
ears laid back in affable 11 ,III. his tongue
. in, ,. he was unmistakably a dog.
He was going from guest to guest, giving
each of them a cursory inspection, when two
large young pups loped up eagerly to share the
attention and started badgering Santos to play,
knocking him clumsily with their Li, .i 11 1i .1i
wagging hips and tails. He bore it testily in the
manner of one who suffers a fool. They kept it
up, almost edging him off the dock, ignoring his
warning growls-'til suddenly he exploded like a
letter bomb in their faces, a black tornado with a
blood-c '. 1i. I snarl and a blurof snapping teeth.






no-go zone that surrounds Breath-breaching the
sacred circle!-he convulsively wrenched himself
away and bounded onto the deck with -11 ili. I
mane to peal out his warning-a warning to the
transgressing boat as well as to us. I. .i11, 1. i- no
caress, emolument nor delicacy-came between
him and his duty. It was unthinkable that any
boat-especially a fast runabout-should pass
unheralded or ui 1i 11 il I I
Each day, when the guests took out their
.-ii ii i gear, Santos tried desperately to
herd everybody away from the rail where, from


previous experience, he knew they would wind
up overboard. Every splash elicited a hysterical
protest, his bark taking on the distinctive timbre
he reserved for Man Overboard! The urgency
of his inbred responsibility had not diminished
a whit over the centuries. Despite having seen
thousands of people, hundreds of children,
jump into the water, Santos iiI. iii. ii went
ballistic. He even started barking at jumpers on
neighboring boats.
He took himself and his responsibilities very,
very seriously. -


It so startled the ungainly dogs, they sprang
backwards-and landed in the drink. While they
floundered i.. .. Ill the shallows back to shore,
Santos calmly resumed his Ii i.i
The tourists all started i 1i i at once..'Didya
see that? This little dog? Just ran those two big
guys right off the dock!"
"Unbelievable...talk about force of character!"
"Awesome snarl!.. like a wolverine on bad acid!"
By now they were all laughing ... ii,
His next act was i, l ii, jumping, i i. 111111.
the usual congestion of small craft at the dock by
leaping from iiii i, to ll. ii, with impeccable
balance till he got to our skiff, and strode its
foredeck-on station, ready to ride. By this time
the guests were i i li 1 ii- I to learn that this was a
ship's dog, belonging to the very boat they were
il ,. I on. Much mollified, they peppered me with
questions about Santos' breed while I cleaned the
plugs and drained the float chamber; and when the
machine once again fired up, we all ferried out to
Breath ii i. I ii the best, with Santos, as always,
1. i, i in the prow, reaching a forepaw out toward
the boat as if 11i. iii i the way. People loved that.

WHERE TO PROVISION THIS YEAR:



A CRUISER'S GUIDE
BY CAROL M. BAREUTHER, RD

Whether you island-hop sail the'Thorny Path' go offshore and direct, or ship
your vessel to the Caribbean, there's one thing you'll want to do once you arrive:
provision. All islands offer food for sale. However, the size and number of stores
varies from no more than convenience-type markets with a bulk of canned
goods, to Puerto Rico's find-anything-you-want Wal-Mart-owned
Supermercados Amigo. Here's a sampling of what you'll find:


DOMINICAN REPUBLIC
Major marinas such as Casa de Campo and Ocean
W o rld b o a st, II 1,1 ll' 1 1,, 1 1 I i 11i I 11 11i i 11
distance. In other areas, large towns and small
have corner stores and supermarkets where you
can find all types of foods. Dominican ,. i ii i- I 1 .
take up much of the shelf space, but there are
also many North American and European-made
products. Health foods, vegetarian products and
low-calorie foods can be found in supermarkets
in the larger resort areas.

PUERTO RICO
Pueblo-under new management and with
a recent facelift-as well as Supermercados
Amigo, Grande, Econo and SuperMax are major
supermarkets. There are a number of smaller
stores at marinas and nearby in the Fajardo area,
as well as the ports of Salinas and Ponce on
the south and Boqueron to the west. You'll also
find foods sold by roadside vendors, i i.....


from fresh fruits and vegetables to Puerto Rico's
delicious lech6n or roast I i I pig.

U.S. VIRGIN ISLANDS
Warehouse-type stores, Pricemart and Cost-U-
Less, and large mainland-like supermarkets Plaza
Extra and Pueblo, are found on both St. Thomas
and St. Croix. There are also a couple of neat'finds'
On St. Croix, Lori's Deli is within i 11 I distance
of Teague Bay and the St. Croix Yacht Club. On St.
John, Starfish Market boasts an in-house chef who
daily prepares to-go selections, and offers fresh
produce, cheeses, meats, and bakery goods plus
wine and liquor in an adjacent store.
On St. Thomas, The Fruit Bowl in the Wheatley
Shopping Center has tripled its retail space with a
renovation that means "a brand new i I iI,,,. i"
says general manager David C..-.I.. i.' Fresh
prime and choice meats as well as seafoods are
now flown down from New York along with fresh
produce and bakery goods such as real NYC-style


bagels. "You'll see a big table of fresh produce
when you first walk in," says C..I .. i "We have
the room for more variety, as well as more organic
items'. The store now offers Thai, Asian and Indian
foods as well as a fresh soup station, salad bar, nut
display and prepared salads to go that include
specialties such as wakame and octopus.
"We offer pick up, drop off and free delivery
service to and from all marinas on St. Thomas,"
says C.. .I.. i.' "You can also fax or Email us
your order."

BRITISH VIRGIN ISLANDS
Bobby's Supermarket in Road Town, Tortola, with
satellite stores at Nanny Cay Marina and Cane
Garden Bay, is a full-service supermarket with an
active provisioning service. In-store, cruisers usually
aim for the beverages as well as fresh fruits and
vegetables. "Prepared fruit platters and sandwich
platters are popular with cruisers,' says Sean, who
adds,"We do deliver to boats and marinas"

Riteway Food Market is another popular
supermarket, and Ample Hamper is a gourmet
grocery with lots of neat finds. The Best of British
shop, in Road Town, offers a great selection of
imported British foods.
On Jost Van Dyke, you can find basics at
Christine's Bakery and Rudy's Superette, both in
Great Harbour. On Virgin Gorda, head to Buck's
Food Market in Spanish Town or Leverick Bay
for general shopping, and to The Emporium at
the Bitter End Yacht Club for scrumptious chef
prepared fare to go.

ST. MAARTEN-ST. MARTIN
Grand Marche is one of the biggest supermarket
chains in St. Maarten/St. Martin, with locations at
Bush Road, Cole Bay &Simpson Bay. Each has a large
variety of international products, flown-in produce,
certified Angus beef and good selection of French
cheeses and Dutch Goudas, hams and pates.
This season, "We're bringing in more organic
products and specialty foods such as Kosher,
Indian, Thai, Japanese, Chinese, French and Dutch.
With the holidays approaching, we'll also bring
in chocolates, cookies, foie gras, caviar and duck
breast," says general manager Prakash Sujanani,
who says marina delivery is available.
The Cole Bay supermarket carries more than
2500 wines from France, Italy, Spain, California,
Chile,, i'i i 111 South Africa and Australia.


St. Maarten-St. Martin also has several smaller
stores, gourmet groceries, delis and bakeries that
offer a .... I i i11i, global selection.

ANTIGUA
There are several large and small supermarkets
here as well as roadside produce vendors and fish
sellers at the ports. Gourmet goods are available at

S1. 11ii i beverages, Mass6 says, "We have
all sorts of beers and a wide range of French

TRINIDAD & TOBAGO
Hi Lo Stores is the largest supermarket chain
in the islands, and there's a small store located
at Crews Inn marina in Chaguaramas. There's a
bigger version of this chain located in the West
Mall Compound, about a 20 minute drive away.
Dockside Supermarket at Power Boats is small, but
stocks the essentials. If you really want to load up,
head to PriceSmart, in the MovieTowne Shopping
Center about 35 minutes drive out of town. This
warehouse-style store operates on a club format,
but one-day passes are available.
Gina Carvalho, YSATT administrator, says, "The
fresh fruit and vegetable market, also called the
Central Market in Port of Spain, is where you can find
iI i ii I There is a wholesale section where you can
buy in bulk. There is also a fresh meat, seafood and
poultry ii. -, I ii Farmers bring in their livestock
fresh from the abattoir and you can select your cuts
of meat. Lots of fresh fish and shrimp, too. Port of
Spain is about a 40-minute drive from Chaguaramas.
The best time to go shopping is between 6:30 a.m.
9:00 a.m. on a Saturday or Sunday." -'.

ROASTED HERBED-STUFFED
TURKEY BREAST WITH
BAY LEAF BUTTER AND GRAVY
Preparation time: 15 minutes
Cooking time: 50 minutes
Serves: 8
2 Tblsp olive oil
1 medium onion, peeled and coarsely chopped
Zest of one lemon
10 fresh sage leaves
1/2 cup fresh flat-leaf parsley
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
1 tsp salt
4 Tbsp butter
8 fresh bay leaves
2 (2-1/2 Ibs) boneless turkey breast halves, skin on
Freshly ground black pepper
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/4 cup (good) brandy
2-1/2 cups apple cider
Salt and pepper
Preheat the oven to 4500F. Oil a baking dish and set
it aside. Put the onion into the bowl of a mini food
processor. Add lemon zest and chop both until fine.
Add the sage, parsley, olive oil, and salt and pulse
until it forms a coarse paste.


Put butter in a small pan, add three bay leaves
and heat over low heat until the butter is bubbling.
Remove from the heat and set aside.
Place the turkey breasts on a work surface then
carefully run your fingers between the skin and the
flesh from one end, but leaving the other end intact,
creating a pocket. Season the turkey then stuff half
of the herb paste under the skin of each breast
and spread it evenly. Transfer turkey breasts to the
roasting pan, and place three bay leaves underneath
each one. Baste breasts with half of the bay butter.
Place the turkey in the oven and immediately
decrease the temperature to 400F. After 20 minutes,
baste the turkey breasts with the remaining butter

part of the breast registers 1700F.
Remove from the oven, transfer to a warm platter,
cover, and let rest for 15 minutes before carving.
Gravy: Put the roasting pan on a burner at
medium heat. Sprinkle the flour over the pan juices,
stir for a few minutes with a wooden spoon while
it is cooking. Add the brandy and scrape the pan to
lift the bits that are stuck to the bottom. Cook for a
minute more, then, while stirring, pour in the apple
cider. Bring to a simmer, and stir until thickened.
Season with salt and pepper.
Slice the turkey breast on the diagonal, and serve
with the warm gravy.

TALES FROM THE CHARTER COCKPIT


BY JEANNIE KUICH COPYRIGHT 2008

Fifty-four hours under spinnaker-can you believe it!? It was our first sea
trip with Avenir I/ in 1970 and it was as idyllic as one could ever want. By
the time we reached the entrance ili.. .. ili the high, abrupt limestone cliffs
S11 I. i i. I the town of St. George's on Bermuda three days later, it was all we
could do to rouse ourselves from the deck cushions to drop the sails.
Bermuda assails you with its fragrance the moment you pass iii. .1i. iiI
the cliffs. After being at sea for even a couple of days, your sense of smell
seems to become keener. Its 138 islands seem like little emerald petals
scattered from a flower.

NOVEMBER SPOTLIGHTS:
*The two mega-racers to watch this
month and next areVenus and Jupiter, in
the southwest several hours after sunset.
The two will come within two degrees
from each other, making a spectacular
pair of bright eyes.
* Four meteor showers rip the sky, the
most famous the Leonids, peaking on the
17th but not favorable this year.

NOVEMBER PLANET PARTICULARS:
* Mercury has nobody to race in the
predawn race course and crosses the line
late in the month. Mars is in for a refit
with the Sun. Saturn, a late starter around
midnight, has the course all to itself.
* Venus and Jupiter are the ones to watch
with Venus closing rapidly on Jupiter on
the evening race course.

SiII.II us at the dock were the customs officials who
(U c 1, ill, greeted us and took our lines. They had been alerted by
Bermuda Radio to get us cleared promptly so that we might get a
drink at the White Horse
Tavern before it closed.
Mike holding up world's
smallest drawbridge Evidently enough boats
smallest drawbridge
arrive after office hours
such as participants
in the Bermuda Race
to warrant this most
unusual courtesy.
The White Horse
Tavern did not let us
down. Much later that
morning we awoke to
some I,. -lIII.i where a
regatta with the Bermuda
14 1b s b111 had started.
These very tippy i ii, l I .
were unique with their
35-foot tall masts, nine
foot bowsprits and piles
of sails. Seven men
crewed them and one
of them did r, il. i. I but
bail with a big dish pan from the moment the crew boarded until they got
off the boat. The place in the ii. II, where this crew bailed was sheathed in
metal so that he would not wear Ii i... I the wooden hull. Upon a 11m. ih. I
the last mark, the rules ii.. I one crew member to abandon ship!
Bermuda and its very tidy towns with its distinctive British flavor are best
explored by motor scooter A must see site was the Gibbs Hill Li. ili .. I.
with a climb up to its 1. 1i to survey the islands, most of which were
connected by small bridges. Most are well protected by low lying reefs
which may catch unwary sailors such as the British explorer, George Somers
who ran into them on his way to America.
Not only can Bermuda boast that it has more scooters than cars than
anywhere else, but it also has the world's smallest drawbridge which can easily
be raised by one person. Rather than go to a lot of expense to build the usual
drawbridge, some genius just adapted the bridge that was already there. By
S1111 I up a section in the ii. I11 of the bridge, an opening was made which
is just wide enough for the mast of a small i iI boat to pass i1. i.1 II,
Bermuda seems to have a reputation for catching storms. It sticks 640
miles WNW of Cape Hatteras. Sometimes curious ri ..ii. I, changes seem to
occur around Bermuda.
On the afternoon that we planned to leave Bermuda for Newport, there
was a vicious thunderstorm. Once it had cleared and we rechecked that the
weather forecast was favorable, we left the lovely harbor of St. George's late
in the day and headed out to sea. When Mike took his first sextant ,. i '"',. I
that evening, we were surprised to find that we were well off course.
How could that be? He took .'ii 11, ,. again just before dawn and found
that both of our compasses were so far off that they were un useable. We
could only conclude that a ri.... I ii anomaly had altered the compasses.
Or had we fallen into the Burrmewdah Triangle!? Dum de dum dumi -&
