Port Louis Marina is justifiably known as one of the best appointed, full-service marinas in the Caribbean. With its spectacular location adjacent to the island's capital, it's the perfect base for cruising the Grenadines, all year round.
Now, with our new summer rates, a berth at Port Louis Marina is even more affordable.
You'll enjoy all the convenience and luxury the marina has to offer, including exemplary dockside facilities, 24-hour security, marina-wide broadband and more. Technical services, chandleries and haul-out facilities are also available, either on-site or close by
In addition to its welcoming atmosphere and stunning natural beauty, Grenada is close to 12�N and therefore outside the hurricane belt, which means yachts can remain safely afloat throughout the summer. The island also benefits from its own international airport, with direct flights to Miami, New York and London.
Port Louis Marina is owned and operated by Camper & Nicholsons Marinas, and our friendly and knowledgeable staff are on hand 24 hours a day to welcome you.

FIRE, YOU DON'T WANT IT. PAINT, YOU'VE GOT TO HAVE IT.
Fire at sea! It's every sailor's nightmare.
Recently we heard news of two catastrophic fires, the first on a chartered catamaran in Anguilla, and the second on the famous Rachel Pugh 75 Titan during Antigua Race Week. As of press time the cause of both fires was still under investigation but first reports suggest they might have been cause by an electrical fault. We almost lost our classic yacht Driac II to an electrical fire off the coast of St. John in the U.S. Virgin Islands. There was no wind and we were motoring along when suddenly the cabin filled with smoke. I dashed below and was almost overcome by fumes from the melting wire. I managed to turn off the main switch, stop the engine, and rip out a handful of cable from behind the engine control panel and the fire went out. On making it ashore, I immediately bought two new fire extinguishers, but the danger wasn't the flames, it was the fumes. Reporting on boat fires over the years has brought me to the conclusion that if you don't put out the fire quickly then chances are you won't put it out at all.
It's frightening just how many crews don't know where the fire extinguishers are located. Even worse, and I speak from experience, is grabbing a fire extinguisher only to find that when you hit the trigger it fails to go off.
Perhaps now is a good time to check your emergency equipment and brush up on firefighting techniques.
All At Sea is delighted to announce the start of a major new series of practical articles: Top Coat. The new series will cover a range of topics all to do with painting the topsides of your boat. The series has been put together by Steve Rosenberg. Steve worked closely with several paint companies and offers the latest information on paint systems and application techniques.
Painting has become a lot more technical over the years. Steve has gone out of his way to simplify the jargon, and make recoating your topsides a pleasure instead of a chore. The series will help you decide what kind of paint is right for your boat, how to prepare the surface before you apply the paint, how to fix damaged paintwork, and how to maintain your topsides so that they always look good. This is a hands-on feature packed with tips that will help you save money and get the results you want when painting your boat.
Look for Part One of Top Coat in our July edition.

A BRIEF LOOK INTO THE HAPPENINGS OF OUR WORLD
Changes to the World ARC Sailing Rally
World Cruising Club has announced that from 2014 the World ARC round-the-world sailing rally will become an annual event; starting every January from Rodney Bay in Saint Lucia.
World ARC is currently a biennial event, starting in January and finishing 15 months later. The current event started in January 2010 and the next will start in January 2012.
ARC say that demand from sailors for a rally in the 'off' years lead to the decision to make World ARC an annua event. This will make it easier for cruisers to sail half the rally, then take a year out to explore on their own, before rejoining the subsequent rally to complete their circumnavigation.
For details, visit: worldcruising.com
Catamaran Burns in Anguilla
Fire destroyed a catamaran anchored in Road Bay, Anguilla, on Wednesday April 6.
The Catamaran was rented from Sunsail Charters in St. Martin. According to reports, the yacht was chartered by a family group that included four adults and three children. The family was ashore when the fire started.
A witness to the fire said the classic Alden Schooner Charm III had to be moved from its mooring astern of the blazing catamaran when burning fuel threatened the safety of the vessel. The fire raged for about an hour before the catamaran sank.
As of press time, the cause of the fire was still unknown.
Amcon Lagoon Diving Services of St. Maarten were called in to remove the remains of the vessel from Road Bay.
A New Transatlantic Maxi Yacht Cup
The International Maxi Association (IMA) creates a new race and makes changes to the existing Transatlantic Maxi Yacht Cup.
Since its inception in 2007, the Transatlantic Maxi Yacht Cup has finished in St. Maarten. That will now change and the race will end in Virgin Gorda in the British Virgin Islands, where race organizers, Yacht Club Costa Smer-alda (YCCS), are building a new club house and marina. The timing of the next race is such that the prize giving
should mesh with the opening and inauguration of the new YCCS clubhouse.
The Transatlantic Maxi Yacht Cup is open to all IMA maxi categories. Simultaneously to the Transatlantic Maxi Yacht Cup, the YCCS will organize a new event that will leave Ten-erife in the Canary Islands on the same day as the Transatlantic Maxi Yacht Cup. The Transatlantic Superyacht Regatta is reserved for maxi boats over 30.5 meters in length that are more cruising than racing-oriented.
Plans are in place for the two races to come together in a spectacular maxi fleet while in Tenerife and Virgin Gorda. With still many months to the two events, several maxi yachts have already confirmed their entry to the IMA.
Info and notice of race at the IMA website: www. internationalmaxiassociation.com

Sewage Barge for St. Maarten
Plans to offer a pump-out service on St. Maarten's Simpson Bay Lagoon took a step forward in April thanks to a fundraiser held at Isle de Sol Yacht Club.
The event, organized by Mark Yokoyama on behalf of Environment Protection in the Caribbean (EPIC) and the Love the Lagoon Project, reportedly raised $21,000 towards the purchase of a pump-out boat.
Prior to the event, Island Global Yachting (IGY) showed its support by presenting a check for $4,000 to EPIC for its Sewage Pumpout Boat Fund. Brian Deher, Director of Marina Operations and Planning for Island Global Yachting said: "We recognize the Simpson Bay Lagoon's environmenta value and are proud to support this effort to improve water quality. We know that the marine sector is a minority contributor to pollution in the lagoon, but addressing it is a positive step towards tackling the problem as a whole."
Fast Ferry from Miami to Bimini and Grand Bahama
Spanish ferry operators, Balearia, is to launch a newfastfer-ry transport service in Miami this summer sailing to Bimini
and Grand Bahama. The new service could be a boon for yachtsmen cruising the northern Bahamas.
The company plans to operate the Miami-Bimini-Grand Bahama service on a daily basis (except Wednesdays) using the fast ferry Patricia Olivia. This vessel, which sails at a speed of 32 knots, has capacity for 450 passengers with 80 vehicles in the hold.
Further information: www.balearia.com/company
Restoration of Bimini Mooring Buoys Underway
Alice Town, Bimini - Replacement and restoration of mooring buoys used to protect sensitive reefs and dive sites from indiscriminate anchoring in Bimini is underway.
World recognized diver Neal Watson, who with celebrated marine artist Guy Harvey opened Neal Watson's Dive Bimini operation at the Big Game Club earlierthis year, said original mooring buoys had over the years gone missing or had been badly damaged.
The Guy Harvey Ocean Foundation awarded a grant to restore the buoys, which are used to identify and protect fifteen of Bimini's best dive sites. -�-
SAILOR AND ADVENTURER MIKE HARKER PASSES AWAY ON HIS YACHT
The sailing community is left to mourn the loss of well known American yachtsman and adventurer Mike Harker, who died while on his yacht anchored in Marigot Bay, St. Martin, in April.
As the Editor of AW At Sea and host of the radio program YachtBlast, I had the privilege of interviewing Mike Harker. He was an inspiration. His life read like an action novel. A pioneer hang glider, Mike survived a horrific crash in Grenada in 1977 that left him paralyzed. But Mike would never give up. He fought his way back to health and, regaining partial use of his legs, in 2007 went on to sail single-handed around the world on his Hunter 49 sloop Wanderlust 3. He knew about music, he loved the sea, he was a gentleman. It was an honor to have met him.

SHARE YOUR HAPPENINGS WITH THE CARIBBEAN COMMUNITY
Scotiabank International Optimist Regatta, Sea Star Clinic & Sea Star Team Race
The St. Thomas Yacht Club will play host to a full week of some of the best Optimist dinghy training, team and fleet racing in the Caribbean in June. A packed agenda includes the Sea Star Clinic, the Sea Star Team Race, and the Scotiabank International Optimist Regatta.
Celebrating its 19th year, and known as one of the first and largest regattas in the Caribbean to promote youth sailing, the 2011 Scotiabank International Optimist Regatta will welcome participants this year from around the world.
"Sailors from countries including St. Martin, Trinidad and the U.S. have expressed an interest to come and compete. We also have five confirmed sailors from New Zealand," says Margo Lynch, regatta director.
Over 90 eight to 15-year-old junior sailors are expected to attend this Virgin Island Sailing Association and Caribbean Sailing Association sanctioned event.
"The Scotiabank International Optimist Regatta is a fantastic family friendly regatta that offers awesome training for the upcoming North Americans in Los Angeles and the Nationals in Houston," says Lynch.
Lawrence A. Aqui, vice president of Scotiabank for the U.S. and British Virgin Islands, comments: "For young people, sailing offers many life-lessons that will serve them well, and can make them better members of our community. The sport teaches focus, discipline, self-reliance and respect for the environment. It hones natural instincts. It encourages youngsters to push themselves beyond their comfort zone and leads to the pursuit of excellence."
The Sea Star Clinic begins Monday, June 20th and runs through Wednesday, June 22nd, when top internationa
coaches will teach the registered sailors.
"The clinic offers the opportunity to train with the best and have different perspectives from different coaches," says coach Agustin 'Argy' Resano, who will head up the clinic along with OptiSailors.com coaches Bocha Pollitzer and Manny Resano, as well as U.S. Virgin Islands' Optimist coach, Santiago Galan. "It also gives the Caribbean sailors the opportunity to train in a bigger fleet, which is hard to do here in the region based on the number of sailors on each island."
The Sea Star Team Racing event is scheduled for June 23rd. "Last year we had 10 teams register and we expect more this year," says Lynch.
"We are excited and proud to sponsor the 2011 Sea Star Line Clinic & Team Race," says Keith McSwain, District Manager of Sea Star Line. "This wonderful event helps to inspire, educate and enrich the lives of our youth while equipping them with invaluable life skills gained from the sailing experience."
The three-day Scotiabank International Optimist Regatta kicks off Friday June 24th. Ken Legler, head coach for the Tuft's University Sailing Team, will serve as Principal Race Officer.
Shore side activities include an opening Parade of Nations, a Welcome Party, raffle, ice cream social, a Bingo night and Caribbean-themed night that includes fire dancers.Thefun culminates with a beachside brunch and Awards Ceremony on June 26th.

ADAPT OR DIE LAUGHING
BY CAP'N FATTY GOODLANDER
Having grown up aboard an old wooden schooner, the sight of a crowd unexpectedly gathered around my boat as I return to a marina always gives me a jolt. Is my vessel sinking? Is my tired-looking spouse throwing my Viagra into the water? Are the iterary police there to arrest me for using my poetic license too much?
A number of times as a child I returned to our family boat Elizabeth to find my mother frantically manning the giant
deck-mounted pitcher manual bilge pump (with its six-foot handle) to keep our floating home floating�much to the delight of the local dock-gawkers.
So, understandably, I usually associate dock crowds with disaster.
Luckily, this time I was wrong. It was just my wife Carolyn playing with her adapters. German/American Horst Wolff of the Island Packet Pacific Star was there. He'd lent us a long extension cord to enable her to run her Rockwell jit-
20 ALLATSEA.NET JUNE 201


terbug sander. Alas, the cord wouldn't plug into the dock socket�until Californian Greg Claesson of the Hunter 46 Sonrisa offered up the appropriate flat-stud-to-round-stud pigtail. Unfortunately, Horst's cord had a New Zealand female end.
"Damn," muttered Carolyn. "It's always something!"
Kiwi Brice aboard the custom steel sloop Silver Fern ran back to his boat and grabbed a New Zealand male plug� but it converted to a Euro-Turk female receptacle.
"I've got one of those," said Tom Sampson, a Brit from Katanne, "It will only take me a moment to dig it out of the bilge."
By this point, the adapters were plugged into other adapters which were adapting the adapters�and the pile was damn-near as long as the extension-cord itself. Rube Goldberg would have been proud.
By this point, the adapters were plugged into other adapters which were adapting the adapters�and the pile was damn-near as long as the extension-cord itself. Rube Goldberg would have been proud. The crowded hushed. Carolyn plugged in her boom box, and Leonard Cohen started bleeding mournfully out the speakers. Success!
But before a cheer could go up, I rained on her parade. "Sorry, dear," I said, "but this isn't going to work�not for the sander. Your boom box is electronic, and, thus, is easy to make multi-voltage�but the sander has a 110 volt motor. You know that. You can't plug it into 220 volt�or, at least, not for long."
"Zees es true," said Michelle, the Frenchman aboard the catamaran Escargot of Brittany. "All zee electronics are manufactured with the smoke on zee inside, no? If vous plug zee machine into the wrong voltage, zee smoke escapes. And it is very expensive to get that smoke back inside, oui?"
"... tres cher!" agreed one of the Aussies off Acadian Quest.
"... for that, you need a converter, not just some adapters," chipped in a Belgium sailor with a scraggy goatee and too much hair tonic.
"... what's this about converting," asked California Greg. "I'd happily convert from Catholicism to Buddhism�if that dude would just get serious and lose a little weight!"
"Don't forget about the cycles," tossed out a passing Dutchman. "It's sixty cycles in the US, and fifty cycles here."
"... ah, the Tour de France of the electrons, eh?" smiled Michelle. "Zees is like the white and red wine, eh? No mix!"

At this point, a frustrated Carolyn gave up. She had never been too enamored of the idea of sanding the varnish anyway.
"... vin rouge?" she said, pandering to the crowd, "now there's an idea! Ah, a chilled flute of Veuve Clicquot champagne would taste good right now�with a side order of foie gras!"
"... happy hour!" giggled a German. "And I'll have a beer!" "... it's a party!" laughed Hippy Harry. "Anybody got matches?
It's true that, as you circumnavigate, you almost need a United Nations ofHelpto accomplish the simplest of things. There's always a 'slight problem' with global compatibility. If the appliance you have happens to be the right voltage, then it's the wrong amperage or cycles or something.
Take the propane problem, for example. Nearly every country in the world has its own unique propane valve� whose sole criteria is that it is not compatible with any other mechanical fitting in this universe. So we're often forced into refilling our propane bottles ourselves�via rented bottles and a plethora of various sized plastic hoses.
While doing this I always wear the T-shirt I purchased off the back of a bomb demolition expert in Israel. It reads: If
you see me running, follow quickly!
To decant propane from one tank to the other requires� besides a death wish and a miserly bent�to hoist a full propane tank upside down in the air above the empty one.
The first time I attempted this, I hoisted the tank into the rig of Wild Card in one of the calmest anchorage in the world�well, the calmest in Southeast Asia, anyhow. Alas, within minutes a gaggle of ski boats entered the anchorage and started doing donuts around our Hughes 38.
Needless to say, this caused the heavy 20 kilo steel propane tankto gyrate wildly in the rig�held only by a thin plastic hose under great pressure, a thin Dacron halyard under great pressure, and a now-insane skipper under even greater pressure.
gestured wildly as the marauding Asians to slow down and leave no wake�by pointing up into the rig, making obscene pumping motions with my fist, and even signaling with my most prominent finger in frantic effort at universal communication.
Encouraged and pleased by my excited attention, the water skiers then switched to doing figure-eights around Wild Card.

"... You don't think there's any possibility that the meta tank hitting all that metal in the rig could create a spark, do you?" said an amused Carolyn as the swaying tank rang the mast like a bell.
"... This isn't exactly how I hoped to study 'big bang' theory," I confessed.
That was the last time I hoisted any bomb-like device into my rig.
The next time my propane tank needed filling, I transferred its contents ashore. Alas, the spectacle of a berserk sunburned foreigner lynching a propane bottle from a lofty tree attracts the attention of even the most laidback of Malays. Soon every pipe smoking, cigar chomping, cigarette puffing, and/or marijuana inhaling individual with a Bic ighter was standing next to me, asking with a devilish grin, "Can I help?"
Of course, none of the Euro-units of measurement are familiar to a Midwesterner such as myself either.
If a Euro-yachtsmen tells me, "I built my 14 meter boat that weighs ten metric tons fourteen klicks out of town�on my half-hectare farm. I constructed it out of 10 millimeter stee plate, and painted it with 10 liters of coal tar epoxy ..."
... well, I haven't the foggiest.
Hey, I'm from the slums of Chicago�so it took me awhile to realize that not everyone selling by grams and kilos were drug dealers.
Ditto beer. I heard a Brit ask a German if he could buy him a pint�and the Germany said, "Actually, I'd prefer 500 milliliters."
My American torque wrench is useless too�who knows how foot-pounds compare to meter-kilos? Or kilometer-tons. Or whatever. Not I!
Even asking a fellow boater how much anchor rode he has out turned into a feet/fathom/meter quandary�unless a traditionalist from England replies in cable lengths.
Oh, and they don't sell diesel by the gallon in the Mediterranean. They use liters instead. And charge you the same amount.
Nor is the money the same. A favorite trick in Turkey is to quote in lira and charge in euros�effectively doubling your money and blaming it entirely on a 'language problem' rather than pure greed.
Do you know why they call them SIM cards in mobile phones? Because no matter how much you pay, it SIMply won't work in the next harbor or anchorage.
And, despite the fact that I haven't lived in the US in over 30 years, my credit card company keeps calling me with the distressing news that someone is using my card overseas.
"I'm not just overseas," I tell them. "I'm on the seas! The high seas! Hell, while going to windward in heavy air, I'm often underthe high seas!"
Of course, I do visit the States occasionally. I'm always stopped by Customs & Immigration when I do�and asked why my bulging passport has more stamps than Hilary Clin-

ton. The first thing they routinely ask me is where I live, and then they order me to recite all the countries I visited since left America.
If it is the beginning of the Immigration officer's shift, can usually accomplish this before he has to go home.
... Both coming and going, they sweat me�but only in Fahrenheit in America and Centigrade elsewhere.
And there's that pesky 24 hour military time they use here in Turkey�which translates to me showing up for dinner two hours after everyone else has eaten.
Ah, yes, the world is truly a diverse place. Have you ever noticed that each country has a different passport stamp which is completely illegible in a unique way? Clever, eh? And the smaller the country, the larger the clearance stamp. Hell, tiny Funafuti, Tuvalu�an island that it is about ten feet wider and longerthan its runway�has a stamp which spans the whole passport page!
Of course, during our previous transits of the Galapagos we've learned a lot about that butterfly-chasing-sailor named Charles Darwin. My favorite Darwin quote is: "Adaptability is more important than intelligence."
This is cold comfort to fellows such as myself�who are a few sheaves short of a full masthead. But, in a way, it's iberating, too. Now when I run aground I just say with a Euro-shrug, "Well, I guess there was a kilo or two less water than I thought!"

SAILING WITH CHARLIE
THE DINGHY
Don't judge a man by the size of his dinghy' is a hackneyed expression that often elicits groans rather than laughter, but let's get things straight here - judging a man by his dinghy may be a valid assessment. After all, a large, loud and conspicuous dinghy may denote a lack of manliness in other areas.
There is no doubt that a man's dinghy helps describe his personality. A good friend of mine rows, or sculls, ashore in a double-ended Cape Cod Dory, much to the delight of onlookers. Dedicated sailors often use sailing dinghies denoting a carefree, laid back life style. Tourists favor fast rubber inflatables to whizz back and forth to beaches, cora reefs, beach bars, restaurants or party venues in search of a great time in a limited time. Rich charter yachts often have two dinghies eliciting comments like, "Oh, they're a two dinghy family," just like land based folks with two cars.
Securing your dinghy against theft, loss by careless knot tying or the odd storm that may carry it off a beach when swells are up are problems that cars-in-garages just don't have. The other day Charlie was preparing to raise sails on his charter boat when he noticed a boat ahead of him lose their dinghy; it just drifted away unnoticed. Charlie and crew changed course slightly and picked it up, increased their speed and with full sail and motor tried to catch up with the bereaved 'mother ship'. After half an hour of motor sailing towards the oblivious boat (and way off course to their own destination) they got almost within hailing distance. Charlie and crew shouted, screamed, waved, jumped up and down ... The dispossessed crewturned around and waved happily back, oblivious to their plight. Charlie called on Ch.16 numerous times, again with no result. Crew member George was looking through the binocs, "I think they gave us the finger," he said.
Eventually they arrived at their anchorage and lo and behold there was the dinghyless yacht. Charlie towed it over to them.
"Oh, thanks," they said, "We didn't even know we'd lost it 'til we anchored. Would you like to come aboard for a cup of tea?" Charlie thought a case of rum would be better recompense but he just smiled and handed over the painter. Stuff happens he thought. Next time it could be me. -�

FORTY YEARS AND GOING STRONG: BVI SPRING REGATTA
TRADITION & INNOVATION
STORY BY CAROL M. BAREUTHER � PHOTOS: DEAN BARNES
Winner Racing E R/C - St. Maarten's lan> Hope-Ross (wheel) pushes his Beneteau First 36.7 Kick 'em Jenny to windward.
There's one thing you always have to admire about the BVI Spring Regatta & Sailing Festival, held this year March 29th to April 3rd, out of Nanny Cay Marina on Tortola. That is, there's always something new. This year, for example, welcomed the inaugural two-day Gill BVI International Match Racing Championship in the run up to the Spring Regatta and a new Classics class to the regatta itself. Yet, on this ruby anniversary regatta, there was a keen sense of tradition too. This combination of innovation and tradition made for an extremely winning mix if the near-record 1 22 boat registration and a nightly packed regatta village was any indication.
Match Racing
Eight teams with skippers hailing from the Caribbean and U.S. mainland sailed ten flights of one-on-one match races in IC24s on the first day of the Gill BVI International Match
"Racing was fairly close," says Sandy Hayes, three-time Rolex Women's Match Racing champion and Massachusetts-based sailor .... "Three teams were tied for second place after the first day."
Race. This was followed by a half-day of semifinals and finals that saw St. Thomas' America's Cup winning helmsman, Peter Holmberg, soundly win. This victory scored his team an invite to the Chicago Match Racing Center's Grade Two event this August.
"Match racing added another element to the BVI Spring Regatta," says Holmberg. "I look forward to seeing more."
Holmberg didn't just walk away with the prize. "Racing was fairly close," says Sandy Hayes, three-time Rolex Women's Match Racing champion and Massachu-

setts-based sailor, who skipped with a crew of novice lady match racers from St. Thomas. "Three teams were tied for second place after the first day."
One team that gave Holmberg a run for his money was skippered by St. Thomas' William Bailey, who had an all-star crew that included both Thomas and an Barrows.
"I've match raced with Peter before, so I know what he would try at the start," says Bailey, whose team finished second.
Ultimately, says the BVI's Mark Plaxton, who trimmed spinnaker and jib for Holmberg, "the theme of this event was the chance to learn from the best and become proficient at match racing. My hat's off to Gill for sponsoring the event and making it a Grade 3, which didn't attract the pros, but gave us all a chance to learn.

Classics & Cutting Edge Yachts
Classic yachts - full keeled, of heavy to moderate displacement, built of wood or steel and of traditional rig - were given their own class at the regatta this year. Four yachts entered.
"We lobbied for our own class for a long time," says St. Croix's Stan Joines, who helmed his 1965-built Alberg 35 Windflower, which doubles as his home and is crewed by high school students. "Many regattas have done away with us. But, there are many of us that like to really cruise and sai heavy rather than papier-mache boats."
Windflower won the class in a tie-breaker with the BVI's Todd Patterson's Veritas by having more first place finishes.
"We've done Antigua Classics, but it was nice to race in our home waters," says Patterson, who skippered Veritas, a 1962-built 55-foot Abeking and Rasmussen ketch.
This year's regatta also saw several swift racing yachts, including two sleek Swans.
Newport, Rhode Island's Phillip Lotz brought his Swan 42 Arethusa, down to race in St. Thomas' International Rolex
Ultimately, says the BVI's Mark Plaxton,... "the theme of this event was the chance to learn from the best and become proficient at match racing.... I learned more in two days of match racing than double that amount of time fleet racing."
Regatta, the Sailing Festival and BVI Spring Regatta. "The attraction is ten days of sailing and the back-to-back racing," says Lotz, who finished second in class to the Grand Soleil 52 Antilope, on which Volvo Ocean Race veteran, Bouwe Bekking, was calling tactics.
Cameron McColl, one of the Nanny Cay Marina owners, hopes to see more Swans in the future. Plans call for doubling capacity with the addition of 220 slips with a depth of 14 feet by May 2013. "We already host the Oyster Rendezvous. We'll be able to host the Swan Rendezvous with the new addition to the slips and depth at the slips," says McColl.

Forty Years Ago
What did the BVI look like forty years ago?
"Deserted," says Peter Haycraft, the only sailor to compete all 40 years and serve as the event's chairman for the first 25. "There were less houses, less cars, less boats. We only had 25 boats back then, and we thought that was a big event. Squibs were one of our first one-design classes."
Destination racing was big for the regatta's first decade, says the BVI's Dr. Robin Tattersall, who raced in many regattas but couldn't this year due a broken mast on his Modified 30 Square Meter, Diva. "We'd race over to Peter Island or up to Virgin Gorda and have parties each night at the different locations. It was a lot of fun, but not something you could easily do now."

NECKER BELLE SETS BVI SPRING REGATTA RECORD
LARGEST MULTIHULL EVER
BY CAROL M. BAREUTHER
Forty-footers were considered 'big' boats when the BVI Spring Regatta & Sailing Festival started four decades ago. This year, Sir Richard Branson's 105-foot luxury cruising catamaran NeckerBelle, earned the distinction of being the largest multihull to ever pierce a Spring Regatta start line.
"We didn't so much enter her for the 40th anniversary as she was in transit from the yard in Australia this time last year," says billionaire adventurer, Branson. "Instead, we wanted to enter to highlight the British Virgin Islands as a spectacular destination to sail."
NeckerBelle, which started life as Lady Barbaretta in 2003, underwent an extensive two-year refit at Azzura Marine in Australia, launched in 2009 and spent a summer chartering in the Med before arriving at its permanent home in the British Virgin Islands last fall. The luxurious yacht won't be heading backto the Mediterranean.
"Necker Belle is available for charter in the Caribbean year-round," says Capt. Richard Kellett, who operates the spectacular four-stateroom vessel with its six crew and ultimate water toy - a three-person aero submarine - for the price tag of $100,000 per week.
The yacht is one of Branson's privately-owned collection of luxury retreats, which include his 74-acre Necker Island in North Sound, as well as a private game reserve in South Africa, ski lodge in Switzerland, and palatial hotel in Morocco -to name a few.
This, however, isn't the first year Branson has sailed in the BVI Spring Regatta.
BVI veteran sailor, Dr. Robin Tattersall, explains: "I invited Richard; he wasn't Sir then, out the year (1997) the Moorings bought the J/120s. I chartered one to race and invited Richard to crew along with about four other 20-somethings. Later that day, I dropped him off at the dock as he had a previous engagement for the evening. After he left, the other crew asked who he was and I told them. They all gasped when they realized because they'd been yelling at him and telling him what to do all day."
Branson was firmly at the helm of Necker Belle this year. He sailed both in the Sailing Festival and on the Saturday of the BVI Spring Regatta, before flying out to Newport Beach, California, where he unveiled his new single-person

submarine on April 5, intent to set several world records by diving to deepest depths of the world's oceans including the Atlantic's Puerto Rico Trench.
Speaking after finishing second in the Sailing Festival's Nanny Cay Cup, Branson said: "We ripped Big Red (the colorful spinnaker which flies from the 124-foot tall mast), so we have a lot to learn. But, its great fun to participate and although we're not a serious race boat, it was lovely to get up to fifteen and a half knots - and then really take off."

SOLO SAILING
A VOYAGE OF ENCOUNTERS
BYSANNY ENSING
Aurora Canessa is attempting to become the first Argentinean women to sail solo across the Atlantic Ocean. Canessa is planning to sail from St. Maarten to Is la de Faial in the Azores, with a quick stop in Bermuda along the way. After a rest in the Azores she will continue on to Cascais, Portugal.
Although Canessa's historic journey is avidly followed by fellow sailors and the newspapers in Buenos Aires, more importantly it serves as an inspiration to many women in Argentina. As the 66 year-old explained: "At my age, at least in Argentina, not many women are inclined to start fulfilling their life dreams; many just wait for death. As the first woman from my country to cross the Atlantic solo, this journey is well-known and well-loved in Buenos Aires, and if my trip inspires even one other woman to achieve her dream, then that makes me happy."
"The sea opens the heart, I think. I experienced a very great aperture of emotions that I don't think I could have had in the city. That is how I fell in love with Horacio."
Her journey started in Olivas, Buenos Aires, on April 17 2010 and, if all goes to plan, will end when she reaches Cascais in June.
Canessa started her trip with one challenge in mind: to cross the Atlantic solo. However, things changed along the way. "I was planning to continue on to England and sail together with a very good friend of mine to Antarctica," she laughs, "but my voyage of encounters blew me off-course and onto a path of love. I am having a very spiritual journey and I met both love and friendship along the way."
Sitting in the cockpit of her sailboat Shipping, a Pandora 32, she described the more emotional side of her voyage. "The sea opens the heart, I think. I experienced a very great aperture of emotions that I don't think I could have had in the city. That is how I fell in love with Horacio. I was not looking for love at all, but I fell for him completely when I met him sailing around Rio de Janeiro." She laughs, adding: "One of my best friends that came along for the journey met the man of her dreams in Martinique, so it's been a voyage of love for both of us."
ALLATSEA.NET JUNE 201


As a business woman, and the sole owner of a private postal service that catered to the entire country, it meant a rigorous cutting of ties when she left on her journey.
"I started out delivering express post with just one motorcycle and look at me now, 18 years later, I employ over 80 people and cater to the whole of Argentina. But in order to realize this journey, I had to concentrate fully on my goal for the past ten years, so there were no boyfriends in my life,"
she laughs. Then, on a serious note, _
she said: "You generate what you have and I believe we are responsible for what we generate, good or bad. I make mistakes just like everyone else, but I don't blame others for those mistakes. And when I meet beautiful people and they want to be with me, like Horacio; then it is me who generates this good fortune."
In 1992Canessa undertookanoth-er historical voyage. Together with six men she cruised to the Malvinas (Falklands Islands) to spread flowers at sea for the many men who lost their lives during the war between Argentina and the United Kingdom in 1982.
"It was a message from Argentinean women saying that we don't want to lose our fathers, brothers, husbands and sons to war anymore. It got a lot of press coverage in Argentina, and it was the fulfillment of another one of my dreams."
As she prepared to leave St. Maarten, she said: "If you are not at peace with yourself, I don't think you can do a solo sail like this. As a believer of reiki (alternative healing), I have harmonized my energy and chakras and I feel at ease with myself. I am a little scared, just enough to stay alert, think I will enjoy this journey alone immensely. It is a profound internal journey to me, as much as it is about successful navigation. This time, instead of forcing onward to Antarctica, I've decided to be grateful for what this voyage of encounters has brought me. Something that is more precious than any dream. This time I am sailing down the path of love.
'Piola!" she laughs. Awesome!

Best Boat - Abigail III. From left: Capt. Red Bailey, Dr. Billy Biscoe (behind), Billy Biscoe, Jr. (foreground), etf Kreiner, Frank Montgomery, Jr. (foreground). Bill ^Vysocki, Walter Seipel and Michael Christie. ^
The catch of a 36.41-pound dolphin (mahi-mahi) earned St. Thomas angler, Craig John Rose, Top Angler and a $1,000 cash prize, at the Virgin Islands Game Fishing Club's (VIGFC) Dolphin Derby Fishing Tournament sponsored by Budget Rent A Car, and fished April 17.
Fishing aboard his 25-foot Spider 100% Fisherman, as lone angler and skipper, John Rose caught his winning whopper dolphin around 8am off the south side of St. John. "I saw birds and that led me to the school where I caught the biggest fish."
This first place fish was just over 18-pounds shy of the over 55-pound criteria to win the tournament's ultimate prize - $25,000 in cash.
An hour and a half later, John Rose caught his second dolphin of the day, a 33.88-pounder, which earned him the tournament's second largest dolphin prize.
St. Thomas' Bob Petersen, aboard the 27-foot Monza Fish Tails, caught the third largest dolphin, a 32.23-pounder.
"We caught two dolphin in the morning and then nothing," says Petersen. "We saw frigates, floaters and even porpoise, but nothing else, the pressure was really on. Then, we spotted one bird in the right spot and that's where caught the big bull. It was magical. We got back to the dock with literally only a minute before weigh-in."
Cash prizes were awarded to anglers catching the 10 largest dolphin. Michael Feierbend, on the Big Kahuna, caught
the fourth largest dolphin, a 31.35-pounder; Fernando Silva reeled in the fifth largest off Sandy, a 28.05-pounder; Marcus Blackburn, on Mixed Bag, caught the sixth largest, a 27.72-pounder, and the tenth largest, a 25.52-pounder; Michael Christie, on Abigail III, caught the seventh largest, a 26.18-pounder; Mike Frederick, on Islander, reeled in the 8th largest, a 25.96-pounder; and Mike Wilson, also on Islander, caught the ninth largest, a 25.63-pounder.
The Best Boat award went to St. Thomas' Abigail III with 19 dolphin weighing 300.30-pounds in total.
"We caught them mostly by seeing the birds," says Red Bailey, captain of the 44-foot custom sports fisherman Abigail III, and president of the VIGFC. "We started catching fish about 10:30am off the southeast side of St. John and kept catching them as we worked our way back to St. Thomas."
Eleven-year-old Billy Biscoe, Jr., who was fishing aboard Abigail III, won the Junior Angler award with the catch of a 22.66-pound dolphin.
The fleet of 25 boats and 106 anglers representing all three U.S. Virgin Islands collectively caught 73 dolphin. Many boats donated one of their catch to the host VIGFC, where this was the featured entree at the Awards Dinner held April 18.
The VIGFC Dolphin Derby Fishing Tournament was sponsored by Budget Rent A Car and Premier Wines and Spirits.-�

While a bottle of bubbly certainly has very different attributes, the level of quality and precision that goes into producing each can of Micron� is similar. The Micron family of products is the pinnacle of today's antifouling technology � formulated to deliver maximum antifouling performance in even the harshest fouling environments, and on all types of boats. And because Micron products are polishing paints, they actually become smoother over time, reducing drag and fuel consumption, leading to a significant reduction in carbon dioxide and sulfur dioxide emissions. Micron paints also provide multi - seasonal performance which means the boat can be hauled and relaunched without recoating. It gets better. Because the polishing action reduces build-up, when the time does come to re-apply, you'll spend less time sanding. You just can't buy a better antifouling. And that's certainly worth r raising a glass to.

CHILDPROOFING YOURMOTORYACHT
OR ANY YACHT
BY PETER PATTERSON
Cruising with very young children onboard can be a fun and rewarding experience, for both child and adult, but it does offer some challenges. Some time preparing your boat for the adventure can pay big dividends in terms of safety and peace of mind. This will translate into more enjoyment for all parties and will help alleviate a great deal of stress. So I found out.
Ben (probably not his real name) was two when he came aboard Wired. Never having had children of my own, I'm not sure I fully appreciated what that meant. Until our first weekend underway, that is. First off, two-year-olds are fast. Bad puppy fast. They're inquisitive, they like to push buttons and although they can say "no", I'm not convinced they know exactly what it means.
First off, two-year-olds are fast. Bad puppy fast. They're inquisitive, they like to push buttons and although they can say "no", I'm not convinced they know exactly what it means.
Sometimes during my safety briefings Ben just seemed to be staring off into space.
Wired is, as regular readers know, a motoryacht. Child-proofing a motoryacht is no doubt easier than doing the same to a sailing yacht but my focus would no doubt translate to either. My primary goals were, 1: To ensure children stayed onboard. 2: To be able to sometimes restrict them to a safer part of the vessel away from potentially dangerous activities. 3: To regain my control over which switches
ALLATSEA.NET JUNE 201


were on or off at any given time. The rest we could work on later.
Staying onboard seemed like the obvious place to start. Putting aside the problem of the opening gates, my strategy here was simple. I'd do what the sailboaters do and hang netting around the lifelines. Quick and easy. Well, perhaps not quick but still relatively easy. Except for attaching to the long sections of teak handrails I'd just finished detailing. Having no toerail to attach _
the bottom of the netting slowed things down a bit too. Still, relatively straight-forward stuff�some fairleads underthe rail, hose clamps at the bottom of the stanchions and some stout string through the hem�all very seamanlike. Well, if not seamanlike at least effective.
The solution for the gates would come as I dealt with trying to estab-ish 'out of bounds' areas. Not wanting to 're-invent the wheel' I again went looking for solutions elsewhere. I considered the signs employed by ferries and commercial boats restricting passenger movements. Given my experience with the safety briefings, I was pretty sure Ben would ignore them. A more sophisticated solution would be necessary. I remembered the gates that prevented access to Granny's iving room. If such primitive technology could be employed to keep a young boy out, it could surely be modified to keep one in. A call to Custom Canvas, a cruise around the deck to establish the borders and we soon had our solution.
Zippers, Velcro, snaps and, later, zip ties to lock the zippers, allowed me to quickly establish 'safe zones'. The canvas 'doors' work well and solved the problem of the boarding gates, too. This solution is both elegant and seamanlike.
Thethird element in my schemeto make Wired more child friendly was ensuring that I would never again have an experience like the day I was conning from the flybridge, steaming along toward Johnson Reef in 877 896 4040
the Virgin Islands when suddenly the chartplotter, depth-sounder and engine stabilizers shut down. Ben had found the primary distribution panel and was neatly arranging the columns of switches with little regard for which instruments may be using at the time. (I can go without the stabilizers but let's face it; most of you are as dependent as I am on my chartplotter. When is the last time you kept a DR or took a noon sight on a day sail?)

Wired has three electrical panels on the maindeck. Depending on your perspective, whether navigating from the flybridge or about to push the button on a Vacuflush toilet, they might all be considered critical. Therefore, they all needed protection.
The panels are concealed inside neat mahogany and glass cabinets but were not locked. A nail through the stile would have worked but in this case even an ordinary external hasp and padlock might have been a bit too crude.
found the ideal solution at the local Home Depot. Their concealed cabinet hardware presents a neat appearance and has the benefit of mounting flush with no protrusions, nstallation is straightforward although it did require a certain degree of precision and a couple of sharp woodworking tools, which they cleverly stock in the adjacent aisle.
Of course making it impossible to fall through the rails does nothing to stop a child from climbing over a rail, and gates are only temporary measures. Nothing can make up for vigilance and every adult on the yacht shares the responsibility for the safety of every child on board. Boating is a great family activity and starting your children early is a good way to develop their love of the lifestyle. Remember, the very best protection comes from wearing a PFD whenever appropriate.
Enjoy your time afloat. -�-

SHARK AWARENESS DIVE
LUNCH WITH THE PREDATORS
BY KERRY BIDDLE-CHADWICK
Clear, warm turquoise seas just offshore from Philipsburg's Great Bay, St. Maarten, hold a secret - a spot so special that the dive operators guard its location as carefully as they watch over the safety of the inhabitants - the exact co-ordinates of the shark dive. All they will say is that it is a boat trip out and 50 feet down.
The sea may sometimes be a bit lumpy, making it uncomfortable to kit up on the boat, but once in the water, and on the way down the drop line, the surge tends to be more manageable. The Dive Master will over weight the divers. They do this to help them stay in place and not bump around scaring everything within range and wrecking the dive for everyone else. There is often a current and that is why the dive operators have set up a semi circle of cinder blocks for divers to hang onto.
The dive leader goes down first to set up the feeding station and to start drawing the sharks in to feed, and by the time the divers reach the bottom, up to ten sharks may be circling the feeding station. With chain-mail protecting his hands and arms, the feeder takes out chunks of fish on the end of a long skewer. Using the food, he bring the sharks in close, where they can be studied and photographed by the divers, before he releases the fish into the shark's mouth. The sharks are brought in so close that the sun can be seen glinting gold on their skin and divers can observe the protective membranes closing over the shark's eyes.
There is a core group of about ten Caribbean Reef Sharks that hang around this area. The reefs are healthy, so the sharks do not need to have this appetizer, and will only come in and have a free snack if they choose to. Their
40 ALLATSEA.NET JUNE 201


Caribbean Reef Sharks
territory can range from one to three miles and as long as they have enough food around the reefs, the sharks will stay in the area. They do not rely on the divers to feed them as there are only one or two shark dives a week in season and one per week in the off season.
The main reason for these dives is to educate people about sharks and in so doing ensure the sharks' protection and survival. About 500 million sharks are caught each year just for their fins, which are sold to the Asian market for shark fin soup. After the fisherman hacks off the fin, the live shark is dumped overboard where it will drown as it can no longer swim to breathe. Knowing this, we are protective of 'our' sharks and give the deep-sea fishermen a hard time when they catch and keep a shark instead of tag and release.
Joining the shark dive? Remember to take your dive certification and log book with you before visiting our 'friends' for a snack.

Finding Crew
of the
Right Brew
WHERE TO LOOK AND HOW TO AVOID MISTAKES
STORY BY LENA PADUKOVA � PHOTOS BY LENA PADUKOVA & TOMAS VRETHAMMAR
There are many reasons for taking on crew. You might be planning an extensive or intricate passage. You might be in need of social stimuli (cabin fever is a problem for single-handed sailors), or perhaps you just want to share your costs to avoid cancelling the Grand Sailing Plans.
Finding a highly experienced crew may enhance your sailing competence, butyou can also gain a lotfrom bringing along even the most inexpert landlubber. Inexperienced sailors help you practice your teaching, leadership and
communication skills, and may even improve your sailing ability. For an old sea wolf, it's a splendid opportunity to pass on a tradition of great seamanship to the new generation.
It's logical to first look among your near and dear. If you've been cruising away from home for a long period, this may be the perfect time to connect with some old mates. But if that should fail, or you are just too intrigued by the possibility of meeting new exciting sailing buddies, where do you search?
To start with, there are numerous sites on the internet, often free for skippers to advertise. The crew then needs

If a crew is jumping ship, visit their previous boat to see the other crew and the interior of the boat to get an idea of their standards and personality. Take a look at their personal space to draw conclusions on their level of cleanliness. Don't be afraid to ask.
to pay a fee to get your contact details. This fee is a helpfu thing - it makes sure that only highly motivated crew contact you, and filters away the ones that are not interested in sailing as such, simply wishing to travel forfree. Also, check out the homepages of the big rallies, and the genera cruising websites and forums: many have a section for free crew advertising. Online crew agencies are very reliable, but may be costly.
Word of mouth works, too. Tell all sailors you meet that you are looking for crew - the good thing being that you can get straight-forward references. Check announcement boards in the marina or yacht club near you. Should you be anywhere near St Martin, Grenada or Antigua, then try out the VHF cruisers' net. If a crew is jumping ship, visit their previous boat to see the other crew and the interior of the boat to get an idea of their standards and personality. Take a look at their personal space to draw conclusions on their level of cleanliness. Don't be afraid to ask.
On the point of analyzing the applicants' personal letters or CVs, remember to read between the lines. Try to meet them in person, or use a phone if a rendezvous cannot be arranged. You would be surprised if you knew how many people list English among their language skills, not being able to hold the simplest conversation! It's essential to ask a few questions about their sailing experience, as well as their person-to-person management skills. Try to get a picture of their lifestyle: drinking habits, family situation, budget limitations, food preferences ... My favourite way
of doing this is in a casual bar over a couple of beers, as it creates a more relaxed atmosphere. The beer might also bring out some character traits that the person might be otherwise hiding.
This interview is much more important than any CVs, certificates or similar. Some applicants easily get caught in wishful thinking, and a handful, unfortunately, present plain lies.
have encountered a southern European couple with a perfect CV�but everything from their sailing experience to return ticket funds and non-existent drinking/smoking habits proved to be made up. They avoided work, were not familiar with sailing basics, failed to keep to safety regulations, did not turn up for their night watches, drank and smoked continuously, and even admitted later that their mile log was made up. Since it's impossible to get rid of crew in the middle of the Atlantic in any legal or moral way, the skipper and the rest had to bear with them. Upon completing the crossing, they were politely asked to leave immediately. This is an obvious example of why one should always ask for references, and check them before accepting any crew. Also, search for the person on Google and Facebook - especially the picture galleries, they may reveal a lot.
Now, you've made sure that you are on the same wavelength and that the crew's level of experience matches your expectations. The crew are on their way, but there are still many important things to remember. Settle all the financia
At Left: Unless you want to deal with your boat becoming swamped with somebody else's things, check what level of tidiness the crew members are used to. At Right: When to work and when to rest: make sure you and your crew is on the same wavelength.

Finding Crew of the Right Brew
transactions right away. It's sensible to ask for a deposit - it might even lower the risk should anything on the boat get broken or go missing during the trip. Make sure the crew has insurance and clear plans for the final destination: on many Caribbean islands, they must have a ticket home in order to be taken off the crew list. Remember to do this right away when clearing in at the final destination. This will avoid having to get their passports and plane tickets sorted out when they are already on island time and couldn't care less about their old skipper trying to get the papers straightened out.
Handling it by the book, you are sure to avoid any bureaucracy, and have a wonderful and mutually giving experience cruising together with your new crew!

JUNIOR SAILOR PROFILE:
PUERTO RICO'S FERNANDO MONLLOR
Fernando at the International Sunfish Class Midwinter Championships.
BY CAROL M. BAREUTHER
Headlines on the International Sunfish Class Association website broadcast the news of Puerto Rico's Fernando Monllor's win by a whopping 26 points at the 2011 Sunfish Midwinter Championship, held March 16th to 19th at Fort Walton Yacht Club, in Florida. This isn't the first time the 17-year-old sailor from Ponce has made news with his sailing talents and it won't be the last. Monllor's win earned him an entry to represent Puerto Rico in the Sunfish at the Pan-American Games in Mexico this summer.
It was the Sunfish that Monllor first learned to sail at age six. He and his father would head out on the nearly 14-foot normally single-handed sailboat justforfun. Two years later, his parents enrolled him in the Ponce Yacht & Fishing Club summer sailing camp where he learned to sail Optimist dinghies. His talent and natural ability was evident early on. Monllor won the Optimist regatta held at the conclusion of his first summer camp.
"He loved sailing and he loved the competition," says Monllor's mother Ivette .... "There was no turning back after that and he hasn't stopped sailing since."
"He loved sailing and he loved the competition," says Monllor's mother Ivette, who adds that her son's love of the sport has influenced brothers Alejandro and Miguel as well. "There was no turning back after that and he hasn't stopped sailing since."
Monllor enjoyed a wildly successful Optimist career. For one, he won the Scotiabank International Optimist Regatta in St. Thomas in 2007. After this event, he competed in the Optimist South American Championships in Peru where he finished in the top 20 - with a broken arm! He concluded

his Optimist career in 2008, finishing 22/204 at the Optimist North Americans in Curacao and 18/250 at the Optimist Worlds in Turkey. He also was a member of the Puerto Rican Optimist Sailing Team that won five consecutive continental team-racing titles.
The next stop in Monllor's sailing career was the Sunfish. "I chose the Sunfish because this was my first boat. It's also a boat I could sail successfully and compete in, in the Central American and Caribbean Games (CAC) and in the Pan American Games given my weight, height and experience."
Monllor's success in the Sunfish to date has been amazing. Two years ago he sailed his first Sunfish Midwinters and finished Top Junior and 16th overall. Last year, in the same event, he again finished Top Junior and improved his overall finish to 8th place. This year he won the event. Monllor has also sailed in the Sunfish International Youth Championships in the Bahamas where he finished 2nd overall, the Sunfish Worlds also in the Bahamas where he ended 54th, the Sunfish South Americans in Columbia where he scored 14th overall, and in the Sunfish Class in the Central Ameri-

can & Caribbean Games in Mayaguez last summer where he finished sixth. Since then, Monllor has been training for the Pan-American Games by competing in all major Sunfish regattas in the U.S. and South America, which included the Midwinters in Florida that he won.
What's daily life like for a teenager this dedicated to sailing?
"He trains on the water Wednesdays, Fridays, Saturdays and some Sundays," tells his mother. "On Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays he does physical training and weights. He also has to make sure he's eating healthy and keeping up his weight, and he is studying often in preparation for SAT's and other college entrance tests. He is currently inclined to a college in the northeast and looks forward to college sailing, but he still has another year of high school. In his spare time, he enjoys kite-surfing, windsurfing and longboard/downhill skateboarding."
This summer, Monllor will split his time between sailing in the Pan American Games in Sunfish and crew-
ing for Puerto Rico's Raul Rios in the International 420 to represent Puerto Rico at the ISAF Youth Worlds in Croatia.
His ultimate sailing goals are the 2016 Olympics in a double-handed boat.
What does Monllor like best about sailing?
"I like the freedom," he says. "I love to be out there in control of my boat and enjoy nature. I don't have words to describe it; it just feels good to sail, to play the wind, to be in the water. I am lucky to have been born and raised in Puerto Rico where the wind is always perfect and the water always warm, the view always amazing. Also, I've been lucky to represent my island and sail around the world, which has been incredible. But, I think the best part is that I can enjoy sailing with my family." -@-

DESTINATION: ST. JOHN
AN IN-DEPTH GUIDE
STORY BY PATRICIA BURSTEIN � PHOTOS: RENA DAWSON
St. John is a hugely pleasing anomaly in the United States Virgin Islands. Most every modern amenity, from over-the-counter cough medicines to gourmet cheeses and fine wines, are readily accessible. Yet, remarkably, this 19 square mile island of under 5,000 people retains a charm redolent of the old West Indies. Undisturbed by an increasingly homogenized world, two-thirds of St. John is a national park.
The only way to get to the island is by your own boat or hourly ferry service from St. Thomas, three miles to the north. It takes 20 minutes to reach St. Cruz, the main hub of St. John, affectionately known as Love City, which has an easy, breezy, friendly feel. Directly off the dock is Wharfside Village, a winding maze of shops, bars and restaurants set amongst cobblestone streets. It blends with the brightly
painted houses, pink, yellow, lime, with wood shutters draped in bougainvillea.
Three blocks away is three-story Mongoose Junction, built out of recycled stones from old sugar mill plantations, here you will find restaurants, clothing and jewelry stores. An art gallery, Bajo el Sol, showcases the work of local artist Avelino Samuels, whose wood-turning pieces, created out of mahogany, lignum vitae, white prickle and other native trees are palpably beautiful. Oil paintings by his sister Karen Samuels, portray the faces, landscapes and history of St. John in all its intonations.
St. John was settled in 1718 by the Danes whose plantations flourished on the backs of African slaves.

Emancipation did not come for more than a century until July 3 1848. Their descendents make up the majority of the population today. In 1917 the United States bought St. John from Denmark. Later in the century, in 1956, American philanthropist Laurence Rockefeller, the original owner of the renowned Caneel Bay resort, donated 5,000 acres of land to establish a national park. Today the park covers over 12,000 acres, 5,650 of which are aquatic lands.
There are 200 mooring buoys inside the National Park, these are available at a cost of $15 per night. The registration fee, good for 30 days each year, is limited to boats under 60 feet. Day moorings are free.
"Not dropping a hook into the sea every day helps," says park ranger Deanna Sommerville.
Information about moorings and anchoring, along with guided ecological tours, are available at the National Park Visitors Center (340-776-6201) in Cruz Bay.
Reef Bay, among 21 trails, is a must-do albeit a somewhat arduous trekthrough three miles of both shady, moist forest and semi-arid scrublands. Herons, hummingbirds and frigates soar over bay trees, anthereums, bromeliads and pipe organ cactus. One side trail leads to a waterfall and petro-glyphs; farther down towards the beach is the old steam-driven rum factory.
The best snorkeling is at Water Lemon Cay, a one-and-half mile flat, breezy trail along the water's edge from the Annaberg Plantation ruins. It can also be reached by boat. At the pow-

NAMASTE FOUND
WHAT TO DO IF YOUR BOAT IS STOLEN
BY CAROL M. BAREUTHER
The call went out via email on March 7 from a marine surveying company based in Hamburg, Germany, on behalf of an insurance company and yacht owner: be on the look-out for a Norwegian Lagoon 380 Premium reported missing between February 27 and March 3 from its mooring in Charlotte Amalie Harbor, St. Thomas. Pamela Wilson, broker for St. Thomas-based Cool Cat Charters, received the Email on March 17 and immediately passed it on to her captain, Kristopher Burton, who runs the 48-foot term charter catamaran, Sweetest Thing. Bingo. Vessel found a short ten days after it was first reported missing.
"My 78-year-old mom was visiting from Wyoming and read Pamela's Email to her and my wife as we sat on the back of our boat in Elephant Bay, off Water Island," says Captain Burton. "We looked at the picture and then looked over at the boat anchored a short ways in front of us. My mom picked up on it immediately and said it looked identical to the yacht reported missing."
Captain Burton jumped in his dinghy, motored overto the unoccupied yacht and, sure enough, a crude rendition of a new name in small lettering barely obscured the true name of the vessel, Namaste. Likewise, the registration numbers had been ripped off, but again visible enough in the impression left behind. Finally, a call to the insurance company confirmed the vessel's hull number matched with the missing yacht. The German company's Caribbean surveyor
in Tortola, the Department of Planning & Natural Resources and U.S. Coast Guard were all appropriately notified and by afternoon the missing vessel was secured.
"I thinkthis shows the power of Email," says Wilson. "Ten years ago this wouldn't have been possible. Now it's easy to get the word out fast when a vessel goes missing and the marine community is a tight knit one."
Burton agrees. "We all look outfor one another. Whether it's the safety of one another's boats or even when a boat starts dragging on its mooring. I've never known someone to sit there and let it happen."
For their efforts, Wilson and Burton split a reward of $7500.
Vessels going missing in the Caribbean are far from an everyday occurrence. But should this occur, owners should notify their insurance company immediately. The insurance company can initiate a search within the global marine community that ripples out far and wide electronically. In addition, key theft prevention measures include securing the vessel, stowing expensive equipment out of plain view and having an on-location person to watch over the vessel while owners are away for an extended time. ���

VIRGIN ISLANDS'
TEAM INTAC/CROWLEY
ALL-STAR SAILORS LOOKTO CONQUER MELGES 32 WORLD
BY CAROL M. BAREUTHER
"We worked very hard together as a team for the last several months and it has paid off handsomely," says Plaxton, who has lived, sailed and worked as INTAC's chief investment officer in the BVI for 17 years. "Our motto is Peace, Love and Boat Speed."
Ateam of U.S. and British Virgin Islands' sailors are out to conquer the world, the world of sailing that is, and to bring that world to the Caribbean. And they are well on their way. M32or Team INTAC/Crowley, is a Melges 32 helmed by the BVI's Mark Plaxton, with an all-star crew that includes America's Cup winning St. Thomas-based helmsman Peter Holmberg; J24 World Champion, Anthony Kotoun; professional sailor, Ben Beer; and 49er Olympic hopeful, Topher Kingsley. The team built a 'picket fence' of first place finishes this season at the St. Maarten Heineken Regatta, International Rolex Regatta and BVI Spring Regatta. Their goal is to win the Melges 32 Worlds in 2012
and ultimately bring the hosting of this championship back to Virgin Islands waters.
"The Melges 32 is the Formula One of racing," says Robert Jennings, an avid sailor, colleague of Plaxton's at the BVI-based INTAC Global Investments, and media/advertising liaison for the team. "The economy is leading to downsized Farr 40 and TP 52 programs, and as a result, some of the top sailors in the world are racing the Melges 32, so it's an extremely competitive class."
The International Sailing Federation recognized the Melges 32 as an international class in 2008 and there are now fleets in North America, Europe and Australia.
JUNE 2011 ALLATSEA.NET 57


What's interesting is that this one-design class has strict rules such as the boat must be owner-driven and no more than three professional sailors can sail aboard as crew.
The first phase of M32/Team INTAC/Crowley's campaign was to build a solid string of wins in the Caribbean. Indeed, the team scored no less than first place finishes to win the CSA Spinnaker Racing Class at both the Gill Commodores Cup and St. Maarten Heineken Regatta and also picked up 'Best Overall Boat'. This feat they repeated twice more, winning their class and earning 'Best Overall CSA Boat' at the International Rolex Regatta, and winning the CSA Spinnaker Racing 2 class at the BVI Spring Regatta with seven firsts and also 'Best Overall Boat' award.
"We worked very hard together as a team for the last several months and it has paid off handsomely," says Plaxton, who has lived, sailed and worked as INTAC's chief investment officer in the BVI for 17 years. "Our motto is Peace, Love and Boat Speed."
Next up is securing a sponsor.
"Ideally we're looking for one sponsor," says Plaxton, "Or, if not, three to four sponsors."
The cost to conquer the world doesn't come cheap. The campaign is estimated at around $750,000. But
with this dream team it certainly makes a good investment. This is also the first time a Melges 32 has been backed by a full time media partner: T2P.TV and Tucker Thompson.
Plaxton will next ship the Melges 32 to the U.S. main-and for several major regattas These include the U.S. National Championships in Rye, NY, in May; the North American Championships and Northeast Regatta in July and September, both in Newport, Rl; the East Coast Championships in Charleston, SC, in October, and finally the Gold Cup in Ft. Lauderdale, FL, in December. The 2012 Melges 32 Worlds will be hosted by the New York Yacht Club and sailed in Newport, in September. A win here would definitely put the team, and the Caribbean, even more firmly on the world map for competitive sailing.
Looking ahead, Jennings says, "The owner of the Peter Island resort has two sons that race Melges 32s. I think Peter Island would be a wonderful location to host the Melges 32 Worlds in the future." -�

Sailability Team - From left: Elsa Meyers, Akeem David, Lenford Pope, Jaye Noel, Glenford Gordon, Delroy Gordon.
These are proud times for BVI Water Sports Centre directors, Colin Bramble and his wife Alison. February marked the six-year anniversary of their sailing program on Tortola and they celebrated this by unveiling a series of six, first issue, BVI stamps with the Queen's insignia highlighting their Sailability BVI program. This is the only program of its kind outside of the United States and United Kingdom that specifically deals with sailors challenged by various disabilities. Famed British quadriplegic sailor Geoff Holt flew in specifically to encourage the program and acknowledge his image on three of the stamps - a tribute to his 2010 solo trans-Atlantic sail to the BVI, the very place a tragic injury left him paralyzed in 1984, when he was in his twenties.
Two of the young Sailability BVI sailors featured on the stamps, Glenford Gordon and Lenford Pope, will join teammates Delray Gordon and Akeem David for the Specia Olympics World Summer Games in Athens held June 25th to July 4th.
"This is really huge for us," Alison explained. "We are
competing against giants with teams representing the US, UK, China and Australia."
This is the only Special Olympics program that includes sailing as a sport in the Caribbean and Latin America and is considered the largest sporting event worldwide for 2011.
The Special Olympics was founded in 1968 by Eunice Kennedy Shriver, who had a vision: to include athletes with intellectual disabilities in a major sporting event. She foresaw this competition as a platform for these athletes to defend their special abilities and gain both acceptance and confidence. Now 7,500 athletes from 185 nations compete in 22 Olympic type sports. The BVI team is comprised of the four Sailability BVI sailors who range in age from 16 to 20 years and two 'unified partners', youth teammates Elsa Meyers and Jaye Noel, who will assist in some of the competition classes on 420 sailboats. -�

AN-TIKI
FOUR MEN, ONE RAFT, ONE OCEAN
BY GARYE. BROWN
It started with an ad in a British newspaper: Fancy rafting across the Atlantic? Famous traveler requires three crew. Must be OAP. Serious adventurers only. The ad was placed by 84-year old adventurer Anthony Smith and it set in motion a rafting adventure that saw four men complete a 66-day voyage from Gomera in the Canary Islands to St. Maarten, in the Dutch West Indies, on a craft made of water pipes.
Smith, the man behind the scheme, is no strangerto high-profile adventure and his bio reads like something from a Boy's Own annual from the 1960s: ballooning over the Alps, rafting down the Amazon, presenting a science program on TV. So it's no wonder that his ad attracted three likely lads for what many said was a foolhardy voyage.
Although risky, the voyage also raised a substantia amount of money for the charity WaterAid, an organization dedicated to providing clean water, safe sanitation and hygiene education to the world's poorest people.
"WaterAid is a very good cause. We're very happy to be promoting them. We had a great trip and we can say that WaterAid can benefit," said Smith shortly after he stepped ashore at the Maarten Yacht Club.
An-Tiki carried a 'Yellow Brick' tracking device, which allowed her many supporters to track the voyage through the adventurers' website. When the raft left Gomera on January 30, the announced plan was to sail to the Bahamas some 400 miles north of her actual landfall. This seemed to suggest that the raft was difficult to steer, however the reverse appears to be true. Sailing Master David Hildred had nothing put praise for the handling capabilities of the raft, claiming the reason they changed course was because the trip was taking longer than planned and members of the crew had commitments ashore.
"We managed to get this incredible vessel to track very well, not only dead downwind, but on broad reaches and even on a beam reach," says Hildred. He described how the rudders broke two days out and explained how they were able to steer by means of four dagger boards, one at each corner of the raft, and a long sweep attached to the stern. Using these, he says "we managed to get the vessel to track from one point to another chosen point, which is pretty amazing for a raft."
"When I first got involved with this with Anthony, his first comment to me was any fool can be uncomfortable on a raft, so we had all the creature comforts of home," says Hildred. "We had plenty of food, plenty of water. We washed in fresh water and we showered in fresh water."

It's fitting that a raft voyaging while raising money for WaterAid should be constructed of heavy duty water pipes.
"The company couldn't have been more supportive," says crewman John Russell when referring to GPS PE Pipe Systems, the company that donated the pipes used to build the raft. "They've been in touch with us throughout the journey. They have been brilliant. We couldn't have asked for more."
Four Polyethylene pipes made up the main structure of the raft. Fourteen smaller diameter pipes acted as cross-
beams. Of these, seven were water pipes and seven gas supply pipes. The water pipes/crossbeams also carried the raft's fresh water supply.
The cross pipes and the main pipes are held together by ratchet strap lashings with a 5000kg breaking strain.
Crew accommodation comprises of an animal shelter secured to the deck. It all sounds rickety and uncomfortable. However, the raft was in perfect shape when it arrived in St. Maarten and the crew was in perfect health and well rested.
An-Tiki received a tumultuous welcome as she entered Simpson Bay Lagoon and tied up at the St. Maarten Yacht Club.

"When I first got involved with this with Anthony, his first comment to me was any fool can be uncomfortable on a raft, so we had all the creature comforts of home," says Hildred. "We had plenty of food, plenty of water. We washed in fresh water and we showered in fresh water."
Doctor Andrew Bainbridge kept a close watch on the crew and noted that other than a chest infection, and a few minor skin ailments, the crew remained healthy. "We had excellent nutrition. Once we got rid of the bugs we'd acquired in the Canaries, there were no further problems after that."
The voyage of An-Tiki was closely followed by the international media and much was made of Captain Smith's birthday, and rightly so. It's not everyone that can say they turned 85 while in mid ocean on a raft. The crew made Anthony a cake, and images of the celebration were beamed around the world.
For now An-Tiki lies at rest in St. Maarten's Simpson Bay Lagoon, but the voyage isn't over.
"There is some possibility that we will continue this voyage to the Bahamas," says Hildred.

LES VOILES DE SAINT BARTH
RAMBLER WINS AGAIN!
STORY BY ELLEN LAMPERT-GREAUX � PHOTOS: ROSEMOND GREAUX
Returning to defend their title in the maxi yacht class for the second edition of Les Voiles de Saint Barth, George David's Rambler 100 blazed to the finish line and once again took top honors over four days of racing, finishing 1 -2-1 -1 for the week.
"We are delighted with the way the boat handles and our ability to sail one hundred percent even on the shorter courses," said skipper Ken Read. His biggest opponent was the 97-foot Dubois-designed Genuine Risk, who fought as hard as possible to overcome the imposing Rambler. "It was very difficult to win," said Read. "Genuine Riskls a well-sailed boat, with a lot of the Swedish America's Cup team onboard. It's a canting-keeled boat, different from ours, but still high performance. We had our work cut out for us."
Sir Peter Harrison's Farr 115 Sojana, with such great sailors as Peter Holmberg, Lionel Pean, Jacques Vincent, and Brian Thompson aboard, finished third overall.
With racing held from April 5th to the 9th (April 7th is a lay-day forthe skippers to relax at Nikki Beach in Saint Jean), the 2011 edition of Les Voiles de Saint Barth firmly established this regatta as a major Caribbean nautical event. This was reflected in the numbers with almost 50 boats on the start line, twice the size of the inaugural edition of the race last year.
From event organizer Frangois Tolede; to race director Luc Poupon (himself an accomplished sailor who lives on the island), the staff of the Saint Barth Yacht Club, the
Port of Gustavia, and all sponsors (including Richard Mille watches, Gaastra sportswear and Coca-Cola) down, the event assumed an air of maturity. This feeling of 'coming of age' spread to the races themselves and the numerous cocktail parties and concerts on shore.
One of the nice things about Les Voiles is the presence of local boats and island-based amateur sailors, such as Raymond Magras with Speedy Nemo, third in the racing class, and boats from neighboring islands such as Carlo Falcone's 1938 Alfred Mylne 80-foot Fife Marietta from Antigua, which sailed to victory in the classic class. Four yachts competed in classic class, with second place going to Donald Tofias' W76 White Wings, based in St Barth every winter and skippered by Faraday Rosenberg. Third place went to the beautiful gaff yawl Kate, from St. Kitts.
The next edition of Les Voiles de Saint Barth will take place April 2nd to 7th 2012. For complete details about the regatta, visit: www.lesvoilesdesaintbarth.com

ANTIGUA CLASSIC REGATTA 2011
FAST AND BEAUTIFUL
BY DEVI SHARP
Sixty-eight yachts ranging in size from the 26-foot, David Boyd Sloop, Springtide, to the 180-foot Andre Hoek Ketch, Marie, competed in the 24th Antigua Classic Yacht Regatta. In this context a 'classic yacht' can qualify based on their age, while other, newer boats, qualify based on their design.
Thursday, and overcast skies found crews madly wiping raindrops from the varnish as they awaited the arrival of the judges for the prestigious Concours d' Elegance competition. The judges examine the bright work, decks, interior,
rigging and adherence to traditional designs and overal presentation. This is the opportunity for each boat to showcase their attention to detail and maintenance.
Aboard Rebecca of Vineyard Haven, a 60-foot Nat Benjamin Schooner, built in 1999, owners Pam and Brian Malcolm told me her story and conveyed their pride in being custodians of this classic design. Below, the interior was warm and shiny with silver Bali and Angelique wood from Suriname. To the Malcolm's delight, their schooner was awarded first prize for a privately maintained

Classic Class boat. Other Concours d' Elegance class winners included Susie Standhope's Spirited Lady of Fowey and the newly launched Carriacou Sloop New Moon, which arrived from Carriacou. The classic Latifa was the overall winner, taking home the Amy Frizell award; a beautiful scrimshaw plaque.
With a large trough of low pressure over Antigua, conditions were less than ideal for racing. Friday dawned clear with light winds. Colorful spinnakers were flown on the downwind legs and conditions favored the lighter boats. The gentle winds gave the new competitors an opportunity to test the local conditions and learn more about the competition.
The mighty J class sloops Velsheda and Ranger continued their old rivalry and charged across the start line. The J's weren't alone in their nautical jousting. Competition was
equally as fierce among the traditional Carriacou Sloops. The light winds favored the new build Zemi, while some of the heavier sloops, ironically, the ones with engines, could have used more wind.
The light conditions did not detract from the evening events and generous parties sponsored by local and international businesses. The Panerai hospitality booth provided participants and observers with drinks and snacks. Mount Gay Rum threw a 'Dark and Stormy' party that had a few folks wobbly the next day.
Walking the docks at the end of each day of racing was a joy and, by the list of home ports inscribed on shining transoms, it was easy to see that Antigua Classics attracts yachts from all over the world. Atrevida, a 95-foot Herrschoff
Continued on page 71
IT TAKES MORE THAN ADVERSITY TO STOP LONE FOX
First overall in the Classic & Vintage Class, collecting the Wayfarer Marine Trophy, and winner of the regatta overall, was Ira H. Epstein's Lone Fox.
That Lone Fox even made it to the regatta is amazing. Having been laid up after seriously damaging her keel while racing in Maine, she was re-launched in freezing weather only to suffer the loss of a headstay two days out of
Bermuda. Incidents that could have removed the Robert Clark designed 62-footer from the racing scene for a long time. But Epstein and his gutsy crew pulled together and made it to Antigua.
As overall regatta winner. Lone Fox was awarded the much prized Panerai Trophy and the stunning, special edition, Panerai Timepiece.

staysail schooner, built in 1923, was the oldest boat in the regatta. The schooner arrived from Brazil and it did not go unnoticed that they had great music and celebrated the end of the day with champagne.
Sunday, and the final day of competition showed promise. Crews were keen, alert, and ready to put into practice all they had learned during the previous two races. There were scores to settle, but the winds died and many boats came to a standstill at the second mark. Jokes about setting an anchor did the rounds, but not all the yachts were becalmed and there was some controversy when the com-
mittee boat announced that the race was abandoned. This was particularly hard on Gaia, as she was only a few boat-lengths from the finish line, but the committee felt that if they let Gaia complete the race it would be past dark before the smaller boats finished.
The Government of Antigua has recently declared 'Sport Yachting' a national sport. Eventually, this will offer all young Antiguans between the ages of eight and 18 the opportunity to add dinghy sailing to their school curriculum. Aboard Gaia, they took the initiative and invited along a local dinghy sailor and give him a taste of sailing a big boat.
Although this year's regatta would have benefited from more wind, it was still a huge success and the organizers rejoiced in the record number of boats taking part. Classic yachts, three days of sailing, a single-handed race, gig races, cream teas and a parade of yachts through English Harbour. All this and the familiar skirl of bagpipes to welcome the boats home at the end of each day, from the yacht Serenity.
Antigua, where the legends live on.

OYSTER REGATTA 2011
OFF TO A FLYING START AT PORT LOUIS MARINA
STORY AND PHOTOS BY INGRID ABERY
Port Louis marina, a recent addition to the Camper & Nicholson portfolio, sits nestled on the lee side of the lush tropical island of Grenada. In the growing superyacht market, Port Louis now not only caters to the more modest boats but also boats up to 90 meters in length and with a six meter draft. As the mighty Maltese Falcon can concur it is one of only two marinas in the world that enables the boat to switch off its generator.
Little wonder, then, that when considering a new venue for their biannual regatta and rendezvous, British based Oyster Marine Ltd., was seduced by the lure of Port Louis and the 'Spice Island'. The lush rain forest, waterfalls, scents
of nutmeg, cinnamon and vanilla in the air and an Abundance of mouth-watering beach-front eateries added to the appeal. The nightly parties at Le Phare Bleu, the Aquarium, La Luna and Port Louis marina were preceded by an opening cocktail party and buffet at the boutique resort of Mount Cinnamon with the Prime Minister, the Hon. Tillman Thomas, as guest of honor.
Twenty-four boats in two classes lined up on the start line, with a few more in the Oysterfamily cruising the area. A combination of courses-of around 20 miles each day-was set to enhance the appreciation of the beautiful tropical coastline.

Adrian Hartley and Christine Webster's Quadrille II did well for her 20-something years on the water by crossing the line first in each of the four races. For this they received a special prize.
Another couple for whom it was about taking part in the adventure was Ray and Birgitte Charmak racing their Oyster 53 Out of India. They had a great start on day three. Racing from the picturesque Calivigny Bay, they judged the line well and set off at pace.
"I was determined to get a good start today," said Ray. "We have been shy of the line on the last two occasions and as one of the smallest boats in the class, we always have most of the fleet in front of us. Before we decided

to set off on our adventures with Out of India, Birgitte and I had hardly done any sailing at all. We reallyjumped in at the deep-end. Now we have sailed the yacht across the Atlantic and completed thousands of miles together. But the boat is not set up for racing, so our main aim at these regattas is to have fun and we are certainly doing that in Grenada."
One of the many boats that make the winter transatlantic pilgrimage is SunsuSea. Having crossed on the ARC in 2009, Mariusz and Paulina Kierebinscy from Poland have enjoyed cruising the varied Caribbean waters.
"My family loves to sail especially in the Caribbean. This is our second Oyster Regatta and although we have little experience of racing, it's a great way to learn how to improve our sailing technique," said Mariusz. He added, "We really like Grenada. It is such a friendly place and safe for our children. After the regatta we will be cruising through The Grenadines to St. Lucia, our last adventure before the boat returns across the Atlantic." -�

THE DISH
COOK OUT AND PICNIC FAVORITES
BY CAP'N JAN ROBINSON
Summer and picnics are such a special time for sampling new wines and driving/sailing, car/boat, to your favorite venue. Summer is also a wonderful time to be at the farmers market selecting all your favorite fruits and vegetables. Make your favorite salads and take with you Pates, Camembert, Brie and Goat Cheese; crunchy French bread and crackers.
LIGHT WALDORF SUMMER SALAD
Preparation time: 15 mins. Chilling time: 15 mins + Serves: 6 - 8.
2 medium Granny Smith apples 1 lime
1 (11 oz) can mandarin orange segments, drained 1 cup halved seedless red grapes 1-1/2 cups miniature marshmallows
1 (8 oz) carton vanilla lowfat yogurt
2 Tbsp nuts (walnuts and almonds) chopped.
Do not peel apples. Cut in quarters and core. Slice thinly. Zest lime. Combine apples, lime zest, mandarin oranges and grapes. In an attractive serving bowl, add marshmallows and yogurt; mix gently using a wooden spoon or spatula. Sprinkle nuts over salad. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
TOMATO ONION SALAD
Preparation time: 10 mins. Marinating time: One hour + Serves: 6 -8.
5 ripe tomatoes sliced and halved
1 medium sweet onion (preferably Vidalia), peeled and cut in half then 1/4-inch slices to form a "C"
2 large cloves of garlic (or more to taste), minced 1-1/2 Tbsp of cumin
1/2 tsp sea salt
Fresh ground black pepper to taste Fresh squeezed juice from 1/2 lemon 1/2 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Put all the ingredients in a bowl and cover. Let the mixture marinate for at least one hour before serving.
Note: You can keep adding more tomatoes and onions to the marinade. It will last about a week or more in the fridge.
SEAFOOD KABOBS
Preparation time: 15 mins. Cooking time: 6 mins. Serves: 6.
1 lb large shrimp, peeled and deveined 1/2 lb sea scallops
1 red bell pepper, cut into 1-inch pieces 1 green bell pepper, cut into 1-inch pieces
1 fresh pineapple, peeled, cored and cut into wedges 1/2 cup rice vinegar
2 tsp sesame oil
2 tsp fresh grated ginger root
3 Tbsp light soy sauce
If using wooden skewers, soak 6 of them in warm water for 15 minutes. This prevents the skewers from catching on fire while the kabobs cook. Then thread the shrimp, scallops, peppers, and pineapple on the skewers.
Basting Sauce: In a medium-size mixing bowl, combine rice vinegar, sesame oil, ginger, and soy sauce. Mix well.
Prepare an outside grill with an oiled rack set 4 inches above the heat source. Place the skewers on the grill and baste with some of the sauce. Grill kabobs for about 5 to 6 minutes total, turning and basting with the sauce while grilling. Heat remaining basting sauce until warm and serve on the side. Serve with rice.
TURKEY BURGERS
Preparation time: 15 mins. Cooking time: 10 mins. Serves: 6.
1-1/2 lbs ground turkey
2 Tbsp seasoned bread crumbs
2 Tbsp finely diced onion
1 egg white, lightly beaten
2 Tbsp chopped fresh parsley
1 clove garlic, peeled and minced 1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
In a large bowl, mix ground turkey, seasoned bread crumbs, onion, egg white, parsley, garlic, salt and pepper. Form into six patties. Heat a skillet and cook patties over medium heat, turning once. Cook to an internal temperature of180�F.
