VERSATILE: The KMI Sea-Lift is the most versatile
machine of its type in the world, capable of safely car-
rying most hull types including catamarans, displace-
ment, flat, sailboats and planing.
FASTEST IN THE WORLD: In less than 60 seconds,
the Sea-Lift can have boats lifted and out of the water!
INCREASES REVENUES: Because the Sea-Lift
is able to place boats within inches of each other, not
feet, revenues are increased.
MANEUVERABLE: Steering drive wheels turn 180
degrees for outstanding maneuverability and safety.
SHAPE CONFORMING AIR-BUNK SUPPORT:
This unique feature actually carries the vessel on air!
LIFTS HIGHER: Sea-Lifts are able to lift a boat up to
16 feet or nearly 5 meters above the ground. With the
locking hydraulics, this also allows for easy pressure
washing and quick under-hull work.
PATENTED CENTER HINGE: The patented center
hinge allows for launches and hauls in shallower water.

The first time I had a hull spray painted, I remember
standing back and beaming with pride at my bright
red hull. When I had a wooden boat, my wife and I
used to 'roll and tip'. Again, looking at the boat's
gleaming topsides as we motored towards her in
the dinghy filled us with joy. At some time in my
boating career, I have used just about every kind
of paint combination imaginable to brighten up the
topsides and deck. Beach sand for non-slip, cheap
house paint, expensive epoxy-I've tried them all.
Advances in paint technology have changed the way
we paint our boats. One thing that hasn't changed
is how carefully we must prepare the surface to be
painted. Get the preparation wrong and your spar-
kling paint job may not last. I saw an example of this
the other day on a steel boat in a St. Martin anchor-
age. I don't know what kind of paint had been used,
or when the boat had been refinished, but the paint
was peeling off from the bow in sheets. The owner
was not happy.
Beginning this month, we start a major new series
about paint. This is a series of articles that you will want
keep. Like all our features if you miss one part of the
series, don't worry, you can always find it in the online
edition, just go to: www.allatsea.net
Also, starting this month, we have added a new page
heading: Youth Sailing. Promoting youth sailing is some-
thing this magazine is passionate about. I wish my sailing
career had started a lot sooner. Although I have sailed
thousands of blue water miles, I am still a klutz when it
comes to the finer points of the sport. Sure, I can fix a
leak, head down, backside up, while the boat is being
thrown around in a seaway, and I know how to heave-to.
But my sailing is more to do with hammers and bailing
wire than the niceties of trimming the sails for that extra
lift to windward. This is where the youngsters put me to
shame, especially when I'm racing - all those rules!
Away from racing, more and more youngsters are ac-
companying their parents on extended cruises - crossing
oceans or sailing right around the world. We thought it
would be fun to celebrate youth sailing, racing or cruis-
ing, by dedicating a monthly column to young people.
We are offering you a chance to share your story with our
readers. Are you running a youth sailing program, is your
child a racer, are you cruising with children onboard? Are
you yourself a young cruiser or racer? If you answer yes
to any of these questions and would like to contribute to
our new column then please get in touch and I will send
you more details. If we receive a positive response, we
will make this a regular feature of All At Sea.

I have a question about sloughing sluffingg) vs. hard bot-
tom paint. I have heard that hard paint is only good until
you take it out of the water again. Is this true? My boat
is in Ketchikan, Alaska, and it comes out of the water
every fall until the following spring. Can I use hard paint
on it or should I use the sloughing paint instead. Thanks
for your expert opinion.
-Tim Sheridan, Owner of the 28-foot Rodman Reel Lucky
We forwarded your letter to the experts. Here's their advice.
What you've heard is true, hard paints should be left in the
water after the initial application. Normally it's fine to haul a
boat for short term maintenance without causing the paint
to lose its effectiveness, but I would limit the out of water
service to as shorter time frame as possible.
On the other hand any of our Micron Series (polishing
type of paints) can be hauled and left out of the water with-
out losing the effectiveness of the coating. On haul out
(at the seasons end), I would recommend a light pressure
wash to remove any slime or algae and prior to launching
the next spring I would again give the bottom paint a light
pressure wash to remove any oxidation and contaminates
from setting out of the water. Micron CSC or Micron Extra
should perform well in your waters.
Mike Kent, OEM Manager, Yacht North America
You are completely right. If you haul your boat every season
you should move to ablative bottom paint. Hard paints can-
not be kept out of the water.

Sea Hawk Paints Present Racing Prize
Oyster Pond - The yacht Diablotin racing in the Captain
Oliver's Regatta in May, won a professional antifouling job
courtesy of Island Water World (IWW) and Sea Hawk Paints. ..
Valued at $3500, the prize included pressure washing,
chocking, sanding, prepping and painting with Sea Hawk
New Nautical Islands 77 at Island Water World's flagship - a
store in Cole Bay, St. Maarten.
Regatta official Stuart Knaggs said the prize was given to
Diablotin after consulting with IWW and Sea Hawk and was
awarded for the spirit of friendly competition and as a way . i "
of rewarding the small guy for taking his boat racing with l
no big expectations other than having a good weekend's
sailing with likeminded people.
The prize was presented to the winner by Denis Laesker
of Sea Hawk Paints, and Rodger Lidstone, sales manager
for Island Water World. I- I C.~i . D.. - .. D AI.

BY CAP'N FATTY GOODLANDER
I often say in relationship to my vessel, "Wild Card is a
modest boat, with much to be modest about." This is,
in reality, an exaggeration. My vessel doesn't deserve
to be spoken of quite so highly. My vessel is one small
step from a floating wreck. A lot of jetsam is more seawor-
thy than my vessel-hell, even some flotsam! The fact that
she is (usually) above the surface of the water is the most
puzzling thing about her. Wherever I go, people row over
and ask, "What the hell happened?"
Or, "Do you need a pump?"
Or, "Do you thinkthere's still time to get her into the slings?"
Once, a US Coast Guard Auxiliary officer refused to come
aboard my vessel for a 'courtesy inspection' because, as he
delicately put it, "It was too dangerous, and besides-there
was an odor!"
I mean, do they want me to have a holding tank or not?
The real Coast Guard has (wisely) refused to slap a sticker
on herthat says 'manifestly unsafe voyage' for fear of crush-
ing the fiberglass during its application.
"Be gentle," my wife often tells me as I winch in the jib
sheet, "this vessel is weaker than your morals."
Are you getting an accurate picture? I mean, my vessel
looks like it has been maintained by ... er, Somali pirates.
Which is fine.
The Caribbean is filled with hundreds of rust-streaked fi-
berglass yachts with rotten balsa cores, spongy decks, wob-
bly masts, crazed portholes, buckled bulkheads, etc. No-
body rows up to them and asks their owner why they rolled
the topsides so badly, why they are allowing their sail covers
to rot-off from centuries of sun-damage, why the dinghy is
over-flowing with last month's garbage.
But I have a problem.
The only shore job I ever had was digging ditches, and,
alas, I was fired from it for incompetence. (I mean, you use
the shovel backwards a few times-wham! You're fired!)
... but I digress.
Somehow I stumbled into writing for a living. Bear with
me a second, please. Grab a shovel, run topside, dinghy
ashore to the beach, and then dig down three feet in the
sand. Not so easy, eh?
Now grab a pen and write the sentence, "I dug down
... much, much easier, right?
So I decided to stick with writing.
But I didn't want to be a hypocrite.
So I blurted out the truth: "I'm an idi-
ot, and my boat is a wreck." I honestly '.1 ,
thought that my readers would be-
lieve me-after all, why would I lie?
Instead, the editor labeled my
columns 'humor' and he started to
think that maybe, just maybe, I was
a smart guy with a cool boat.
The truth is my entire literary career
has been nothing but a 'Zen Mind
Screw' of the first magnitude. The
more I claim to have a single-digit IQ,
the more my readers think I'm a mem-
ber of Mensa. Damn! It's a trap-and
no matter what I do, I keep winning.
Which is okay, too.
I'm easy. I go with the flow. I've
got round shoulders from rolling
with the punches of life. I've been
accused (and rightly so) of many
horrible things-why not suffer a

This worked fine for a few months, then I got a note in my
mailbox from Nadire Berker and Silem Yulcin that said, "...
we're flying in to see Wild Card!"
It turns out they are both doctors and Silem is a university
professor in Istanbul. Nadire works at the American Hos-
pital, Dept. of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, and
Silem is a professor & head of Dept. of Orthopedics at Mar-
mara University Hospital.
And they are about to place an order for a new aluminum
Ovni 445-but wanted to see Wild Card first.
Now, it just so happens that an Ovni 445 is my dream
boat. And, as previously mentioned, Wild Card is every-
one's nightmare boat.
My wife keeps getting drunk and telling people at cock-
tail parties "my husband paid $3,000 for our yacht-and
got ripped off," which made me a tad nervous.
To put it another way-only someone who hasn't seen
Wild Card would want to see her!
So I consulted my daughter Roma Orion. She lives in Am-
sterdam, went to school, and has a job. To phrase it differ-
ently, she is a real misfit as a Goodlander! Anyway, I told her
the bind I was in, and asked what to do.
"That's easy," she said. "Just greet them on the dock,
and loudly start complaining about your various medical ail-
ments, previous operations-oh, and ask for advice to use in
your class-action lawsuit against the AMA. Medical folks hate
that. Also ask them if they've ever had sex with their students
or patients, for instance. They won't stay long ..."
"But they'll see Wild Card," I said, the worry plain in my
voice. "They'll know my whole career is a charade!"
"Don't panic, Dad," Roma Orion said. "Cling to reality,
no matter how slender the thread! And, well, your boat is
what your boat is, and you are what you are-so sally forth
with confidence and pride ... no matter how ill-fitting both
concepts may be in your case."
The kid is smart. Or smart-alecky-I'm never sure which.
I was going to put Wild Card in 'Bristol condition'for their
visit-but you know how it is: procrastination is the key to
flexibility. I got a little lax with too much flexibility. The next
thing I knew-there was an authoritative knock on the hull.
Oh, dear. It was them.
I dashed for the least-filthy pareo I owned.
"Welcome aboard," I said graciously, as I moved a few
piles of stuff-and madly swatted at the bugs I'd disturbed.
"Have a seat. Make yourself at home."
My only aim at this point was to get rid of them. Instead,
I screwed up. I fell in love with them. Both of them. Ha! The
joke was on me. They were utterly delightful people.
Nadire had a sailboat before she met Silem-in fact, much of
their courtship took place under sail. Silem is totally enthralled
with boats-always has been. Together, they've raised three
wonderful children while owning a succession of vessels-in-
cluding the Elan 434 they currently sail in the Black Sea.
Their big dream was to sail to the Caribbean-what cul-
tural icons would I suggest they visit while there? (Skinny
Legs on St. John, Le Select on Barts, Foxy's on Jost, and
Frangipani on Bequia all leapt to mind.)
If a love forsailing and lust for the Caribbean wasn't enough
in common, they shyly revealed that they'd written 'a number'
of textbooks in Turkish-and had just sent a giant coffee-table
book on Turkish maritime history off to their publisher as well.
My wife keeps getting drunk and telling people
at cocktail parties "my husband paid $3,000 for
our yacht-and got ripped off," which made me
a tad nervous.
They came, of course, bearing gifts. (Since they weren't
Greeks-I didn't worry.)
One gift was a book by the famous Turkish wino-er, I
mean philosopher-named Rumi.
"I love Rumi," I exclaimed. "He's my moral compass-
well, when he's not too sloshed!"
My wife Carolyn wasn't aboard at the time-she was visiting
her mother in Chicago. But once she heard we now had hon-
est-to-goodness Turkish friends who had a large empty house
in Istanbul with a bulging refrigerator-well, she immediately
changed her flight home to land in the capital city.
So next weekend we're all sailing together on their
boat in the Bosporus and Black Sea-and then partying
our guts out in the better restaurants of (what was once)
Constantinople. Yeah, they're going to drive me around
to get the exhaust parts I need. Sure, we'll tour the Blue
Mosque as well.
The very best part of being a boater is getting to meet
other boaters-of every nationality, class, and persuasion.
Some have absolutely no criteria when it comes to friends.
They like anyone. Even us! 1"!

SAILING WITH CHARLIE
BY JULIAN PUTLEY
Charlie has been living, eating and sleeping boats
for decades and sometimes it's difficult for him to
remember that charter guests from places like Mis-
souri, Oklahoma and North Dakota have a hard time com-
prehending the dynamics pertaining to boats.
On one occasion he was explaining the plumbing in the
shower and one lady was being particularly difficult. "Why
doesn't the shower just drain out like at home?" she asked,
irritably. Charlie explained patiently that water would come
into the boat if there was a drain hole.
The head operation was another point of contention,
"Well," she said with a huff, "I'm not putting waste toilet
paper in a bin. It'll stink."
"It shouldn't be a problem," explained Charlie. "To prevent
blockages you're only allowed one square of paper. And don't
forget to put the little lever over to the right when you've fin-
ished using the toilet, otherwise the bowl will fill with water
and flood the boat when we heel over."
Next, Charlie demonstrated pumping the head and as
usual an obnoxious odor filled the cubicle.
"How disgusting," ranted the woman. "It smells like a
"It is a sewage works," said Charlie with a smile. "Well done."
A couple of days into the cruise, Charlie heard an exclama-
tion from the guest cabin and it was discovered that some green
phosphorescence had found its way into the toilet bowl.
"This is outrageous," exclaimed the woman. "You mean the
toilet is flushed with sea water?! That is certainly not hygienic. I
shall be complaining to the health authorities when we return."
Charlie shook his head in disbelief. Then a smile slowly
spread across his face.
Next morning he went snorkeling and as luck would have
it he found what he was looking for: a small octopus. He
managed to coax it into a plastic baggie and swam with it
back to the boat. Later in the day an opportune moment
presented itself and he popped the octopus into the guest
cabin toilet and closed the lid.
Charlie's plan worked: he knewfrom the resulting screams
that the lady in question had discovered the mini-monster.
Next time Charlie vowed he'd find a moray eel and hope
that it found a new home! -m

ANTIGUA SAILING WEEK
THE BURDEN OF HISTORY
BY MARK STEVENS
Easter Sunday and the morning sun crests over Shir-
ley Heights on Antigua's south coast. Later in the
week this erstwhile military bastion will be the scene
of carousing worthy of its two centuries' of tradition.
Today it offers a vista of boats and sailors girding for battle.
In English Harbour lines are checked, sails are inspected,
and crews work themselves into a state of bloodlust. They
will soon go forth to do battle, reining in their steeds at
the start line: Swans and Farrs, Frers and J-Boats, Olympic
racers and newbies. Thirteen classes, five days of racing,
courses spreading out from the south of Antigua - some
like the path of a sidewinder snake, others, simple wind-
The boats cast off, leaving a seawall where Nelson him-
self once paced.
Some Caribbean regattas are just fun. Some are serious
fun. At Antigua Sailing Week you feel the weight of tradi-
tion on your shoulders; you sense it right down to the soles
of your Topsiders, and you wonder if the crews feel it too.
"Grand-daddy of Caribbean regattas," says race photog-
rapher Ed Gifford. "This is the one."
Longest-running of the big ones - April's festivities
marked the 44th birthday of this spectacular sailing event.
Antigua is also the venue for the Nelson Pursuit Race,
held every New Year's Eve. Here, the slowest boat in the
race is handed a French Flag while all the other yachts carry
a British Ensign to symbolise the pursuit of the French fleet
by Admiral Nelson across the Atlantic to the West Indies
and back again.
You would have to be a rock or a land-lubber to be im-
mune to the burden of history at Antigua Sailing Week.
On Sunday the racers joined battle, but with the hesita-
tion of early skirmishes. By Monday morning the fleet had
Winds had strengthened to 18 or so knots and seas had
started getting lumpy as the races got underway off Ren-
dezvous Beach just southwest of Falmouth Harbour.
"Really tough course," says Annie O'Sullivan, skipper of
the team Girls for Sail.
Race Week is both battlefield spectacle and panoply
of pomp and beauty. The sun paints the waters pewter.
Whitecaps hiss. The fleet turns to windward and marches
toward you with all the majesty of the Spanish Armada.
One spinnaker sports the flag of Antigua. With green un-
dulating shores to the north, voluptuous mountains dot-
ted with pastel-painted villas, and a procession of sails:
This is no mere race.
The yacht sporting the Antiguan flag on its spinnaker
belongs to local hero Sir Hugh Bailey, who won everything
in the Cruising Class in 2010 on his First 456 Hugo B. This
year he's waging war with another local favourite, Carlo Fal-
cone, on a one-off named Caccia alla Volpe. Falcone hand-
ily beats Bailey to the mark. It could be all over. But in the
afternoon Falcone takes a start penalty, so maybe not. Then
Hugo B retires from the first race on Tuesday and doesn't
start in the second.
Back on the course, Tom and Dotty Hill's Reichel Pugh 75
Titan and Genuine Risk battle for supremacy, matching tack
for tack, thrust and parry, appallingly close to a wave-lashed
shoal, off Carlisle Bay.
"This is always a great week," says Antiguan Karl
James, crew on Peter Harrison's Farr 112 Sojana and
a two-time Olympic competitor. He adds, "As long as
things don't break."
On Monday night Titan catches fire and burns beyond
repair. No one is injured but sadness at the loss of one
of the Caribbean's best-loved race-boats hangs over
As ever, history marches on. To the victor go the spoils
and the spoils include a bevy of bacchanals: Mass quanti-
ties of Chivas at the Skippers' Cocktail Party. Maxi Priest
pumping out a medley of Reggae tunes while racers and
spectators stand on the ancient parade ground. A Jolly
For all the carousing, you still feel the pressure of expec-
tations, a sense of responsibility as you share in the tradi-
tion of the Queen of Caribbean regattas. You feel the bur-
den of history.
Or maybe it's just the Chivas.

CAPTAIN OLIVER'S REGATTA
ODE TO THE WIND GURU
BY GARY E. BROWN
"Overall the weekend was much better than we expected. The regatta was well organized and the
competition very good," said Derek Little, crew on the Melges 24 Budget Marine Gill, winner of
Saturday May 21 and day one of the 7th Captain Oli-
ver's Regatta, sailed out of Oyster Pond, French St.
Martin, began with light airs and clouds that threat-
ened rain. However, turnout was good with a fleet
of 23 racing and cruising monohulls and multihulls and a
supporting cast of five beachcats.
Start sequences were well run and offered plenty of ex-
citement. Eager to be off around the island, Jan van den
Eynde, sailing in racing class, pushed his Open 750 Panic
Attacktoo hard and crossed the line early. In cruising class,
and approaching the line to windward of the Catalina 36
Moondance, Bobby Valasques' First 45F5 L'Esperance was
picked up by a wave and lifted sideways, causing the helms-
men to spin the wheel to avoid paying for two expensive
A short beat to windward brought the boats to the only mark
on the course. From there instructions said leave the island to
port until you arrived back at the finish off Oyster Pond.
The tight starts gave everyone a good chance to view
the fleet, and there were some interesting boats on display.
Two Requins, Mr Walker and Lil'e, from St. Barth, were a joy
to watch as their narrow, low-slung hulls cut through the
steep chop. These two kept up a fierce competition all the
way around the course.
Fears that the wind would drop in the area of Grande
Case were unfounded and the boats enjoyed some quick
downwind sailing. Tactics came into play in the Anguilla
Channel where the current can be a factor. Some boats,
deciding on the shortest route around the island, hugged
the coast. Others, like Raphael Magras X-Yacht 34 Maelia, a
new-build straight out of the box, opted for mid channel.
On the long beat up the southwest coast, winds gusted
to 26 knots testing many of the smaller boats.
Battling the rough conditions was the engineless Dufour
1800 Little Po, skippered by Rien Korteknie and a crew of

youngsters from the St. Maarten Secondary Vocational Ed-
ucation (SBO) program. "We try to prepare youngsters who
are not doing so well in school for the job market, mainly in
the marine industry," said Korteknie. "Sailing is part of it. It's
a good experience for them."
At the awards ceremony, the crew of Little Po each received
a gift certificate from the St. Maarten Sailing School, offering
them a free captain's course for yachts up to 27 feet.
Sunday, clouds cleared, the sun came out, and the wind
forecast was right on the money. The committee, having
chosen the longer of two possible courses, got the race
underway, again to plenty of excitement. Having issued a
general recall, the start for racing class was bumped to the
back of the queue. However, it was the racing multihulls,
starting with the beachcats, where the action took place.
Thundering towards the line, and rapidly overhauling the
beachcats, the crew of the trimaran Dauphin Telecom be-
gan bellowing for room. At one point it seemed as if the
tri would flatten the smaller boats and observers expected
to see at least a couple of splintered beachcats swirling in
the tri's wake.
The excitement was short-lived. By the time the boats
rounded Pelican Rock for the beat towards St. Barth, the
wind was dying. Three hours later, and with only half the
fleet around Table Rock, it was obvious that many boats
would not complete the course by the 1 pm cutoff time.

OPTIMIST SOUTH AMERICAN
DOMINICAN REPUBLIC'S PACHECO, TOP GIRL - 7TH OVERALL
BY CAROL M. BAREUTHER
Optimist South American Championships, held April
14th to 24th, out of the Club de Yates Algarrobo in
Chile. The Dominican Republic's Justina Pacheco fin-
ished first out of the 14 Caribbean sailors that competed in
the 162 boat fleet and Pacheco ended an impressive 7th
overall and won the trophy for Top South American Girl.
"In Chile, during the first training days, I didn't feel very
fast, but that is normal because I'm used to feeling like this
during my first time sailing anywhere," Pacheco explains.
"Then, the more I trained; I realized that my boat speed
was very good, so I started the championship with a posi-
tive mind. My tactic was very simple: start in the front and
always try to go to the favored side, and that was usually the
left. Once I was in the top ten, I didn't try to win the races, I
didn't assume big risks; I just tried to stay there!"
The regatta was a combination with fleet racing and one day
of team racing. Calm conditions delayed the start of the team
race until the afternoon when the breeze built to ten knots. In
the Nation's Cup team race, held for teams from non-South
American countries, the U.S. Virgin Islands' team finished an
incredible second with two teams from the USA in first and
third. Sailors on the Virgin Islands team were Colin Brego,
Paige Clarke, Christopher Murphy and Scott McKenzie.
At the conclusion of the nine-race regatta, Curacao's
Odile Van Aanholt earned a trophy for placing as the sec-
ond best girl. Van Aanholt was also 18th overall.
"The organization was great and there were lots of
nice kids, so I had a lot of fun," says Van Aanholt. "I had
ups and downs in the regatta. My boat speed is still too
low in the stronger breeze, but I am happy with my over-
Overall the Optimist South American Championships
proved a great learning experience and fun event for the
The BVI's Sam Morrell, who finished mid-fleet, sums it up
this way: "The weather wasn't that nice. It was fall there and
you could see your breath. I wore a dry suit every day. The
wind was crazy. One day light, about three to five knots,
and the next day gusts of 45 knots and waves bigger than
two Optimists. But it was cool meeting kids from Chile and
other South American countries like Argentina or Ecuador
- they were some of the nicest guys."

PALMAS DEL MAR
INTL BILLFISH TOURNAMENT
NO RECORDS, BUT RIBBONFISH CAUGHT
BY CAROL M. BAREUTHER
pocketed the $50,000 cash prize
at the 3rd Palmas Del Mar Inter-
national Billfish Tournament, held
May 14 and 15, out of Palmas Del Mar Mari-
na, in Puerto Rico. But that didn't mean there
wasn't the real possibility of doing so. The fleet
of 20 boats, carrying over 80 anglers, released
a total of 14 blue marlin, two white marlin, one
sailfish, one spearfish and a swordfish as well
as many wahoo, tuna and mahi-mahi.
"The fact that the five billfish species were
caught means that the possibility of catching a
Grand Slam during our tournament is great,"
says marina manager, Juan Boschetti.
What first put this tournament on the map
was the catch of an island-record 522-pound '
swordfish during the event's inaugural year. o
This fish made international headlines and
heated up interest in the relatively unex-
plored fishery on the south coast of Puerto Rico's off-shore

island of Vieques, where there are sev-

"The south of Vieques has been very
hot during this time of the year for a
few years," says Ricardo Lefranc, one
of the tournament anglers who fished
aboard the 31-Bertram, Predator, cap-
tained and owned by Davis Iglesias. "A
fair number of boats have been target-
ing swordfish in this area with great
success. We have too, using 80 and
50-pound rod and reel with mackerel,
. mullets and squid."
The Predatorteam didn't land on the
prize scoreboard. However, if there was
an award for Best Mystery Fish, they
would have won it.
Lefranc tells the tale: "We were tar-
geting swordfish with 50-pound line at
a depth of 1,780 feet, a mile south of
Vieques, when we noticed what seemed like a typical sword
nibbling on the bait."
The anglers and crew observed the fish taking the bait
(squid) a few times, and then decided to give it a try and
wound all the other lines back in. That's when Predator an-
gler Luis Cordova went one-on-one with the fish. He felt
the tension on the line and thought it akin to a swordfish
swimming to the surface with the bait. A few minutes later
the fish started to put up a real fight and Cordova again
thought if felt like a small swordfish.
"You should have seen the look on our faces when the
fish finally surfaced," Lefranc recalls. "We didn't know if we
could get close to it; none of us had ever seen anything like
it. The fish looked dead, so we decided to bring it on board
and take it home. Even the guys from the Department of
Natural Resources were clueless as to what it was. Now we
know it was a 54-pound Tapertail Ribbonfish (Trachipterus
fukuzakii). It was a very interesting fishing trip!" -@

What You Need to Know
BY CAROL M. BAREUTHER
Yacht insurance is one of those love-hate facts of life. On
one hand, some boat owners begrudge the added expense.
Yet, when something happens -the vessel drags down on
another and causes damage or the boat is sunk in a storm -
owners are very glad that their vessel was indeed insured.
"The benefits of insuring your vessel," says Navin
Dookeran, technical manager for Guardian General
Insurance Limited, in Port of Spain, Trinidad, "is that loss of
or damage to your vessel can be costly. With insurance you
have the peace of mind that your insurer will be there for
you to ensure that your vessel is repaired or replaced."
Yacht insurance is usually of one of two types: liability
only and hull and machinery. William Coates, the Cocoa,
Florida-based president of Offshore Risk Management, an
insurance company with satellite offices in the British Virgin
Islands, says, "Liability insurance is relatively inexpensive,
but it only insures you against the damages you do to
another boat. The other type of insurance is 'hull and
machinery' (H&M). This is more expensive, but it covers
damage or loss to your vessel."
"Yacht owners with H&M should ensure that their policy
is based on the Institute Yacht Clause (IYC), which is the
international standard that is accepted coverage for private
hulls," says Guardian's Dookeran. "The IYC clause provides
coverage for specific perils at sea,fire, hurricane, earthquake,
piracy, etc. It also contains a list of exclusions."
Boat owners must carefully review their policy terms to
determine not only what is covered, and what is not, but
also to learn of what obligations and conditions there are
for payment, explains Colin Probyn, account executive
with the Theodore Tunick & Co., in St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin
Islands. "For example, insurers require immediate notice
that contains details that will assist them in investigating
a loss. These details include items such as the insured's
name, yacht involved, time and place of loss, where the
boat may be inspected and any witness information. Failure
to give notice to the insurer within the time specified in the
policy may be fatal to the claim in the event that the delay
is considered prejudicial to the insurer."
Probyn continues, "Protection and Indemnity (P&I)
policies are issued to insure owners against risks outside
the scope of coverage under standard 'hull' policies. The
P&I policy covers a wide range of possible claims including
physical injuries or property damage sustained by others,
expenses resulting from the rescue of the insured or
passengers, removal or destruction of the wreckor debris of
the insured vessel. In addition, pollution expense coverage
will be found in the P&I portion of the marine policy."
"What boat owners most commonly miss or neglect
regarding yacht insurance is timely valuations and surveys,"
says Guardian's Dookeran. "Surveys are required to ensure
that the vessel is seaworthy, however, it is quite expensive
and it is hardly conducted by owners. The market price for
private hulls, however, fluctuates from time to time and
hence owners should always keep themselves informed of
these changes. It is recommended that both surveys and
valuations are done every three years."
Insurance is available during hurricane season for yachts
that stay in the Caribbean. However, says Tunick's Probyn,
"Generally a 'hurricane plan' needs to be produced by the
owner. In some cases discounts are available for vessels
that are laid up."
"Words to look for in the policy related to coverage
during hurricanes or named storms," says Offshore Risk's
Coates, are 'The Box' and 'Season. The Box refers to the
longitude and latitude considered to be in an area at high
riskfor a named windstorm. Many insurers use the following
coordinates: North of 12 degrees 40 minutes North, West
of 55 degrees West, South of 35 degrees North, and West
of 110 degrees West. Season refers typically to the end
of June or beginning of July through beginning or end of
November, depending on the individual policy.
If your vessel is located in 'The Box' and you have a loss
in a named storm, your policy must say you are covered
in 'The Box' for named storms to be covered. However, if
you have a 'Box' exclusion and are not covered for named
storms and are in Bequia in August, for example, and your
boat is a loss due to a fire, you should be covered. If you're
vessel is damaged by a named windstorm that is outside
of the designated hurricane 'season' stated in your policy,
then you likely are covered.
Insurance for hurricane coverage can be expensive.
Normally, there is a 15 percent surcharge over policies that
don't provide coverage for named windstorms. In addition,
most named windstorm coverage policies are subject to a
higher deductible, anywhere from double to ten percent of
the hull value. Yet, these added costs can be substantially
less than totally replacing an uninsured vessel. -&

he Deck- Advances in paint
technology, along with some
good com-mon sense, can bring
a good-looking layer of solid
protection to your topside.
There may be no tougher paint
job out there than the one on the
deck of your boat. While you may
get some good life out of the molded gelcoat that was
installed at the factory, sooner or later, you'll notice that
straight-from-the-boatyard brilliance start to fade. That's
the time to nip the problem in the bud and put on hard coat
that's up to the challenge of full-time sun, salt and sand.
With all the choices out there, choosing the right paint
and process be a daunting task. That's why we've put
together a series of articles on what to consider before
deciding on a new topcoat application. With advice from
experts at major paint manufacturers, we'll help you get
to the key things you need to consider. We'll start this
month with an explanation of the difference between
topcoat and gelcoat, and how to know what product
would work best for your boat surface in the tough-but-
beautiful Caribbean environment.
Jim Seidel. Interlux Yacht Finishes:
"There are three main factors to consider when choosing a
paint system- substrate, preparation and upkeep. On bare
substrates such as fiberglass, aluminum, steel and epoxy
you can use any of the Interlux paint systems. For bare
wood you may want to stay with a single-part paint system.
The wood in these flexible constructions, such as lapstrake
(clinker-built) or carvel-planked will move as the moisture
content varies, leading to cracking. For more stable wood
systems, especially plywood where epoxy has been used,
you can use one or two-part systems.
"If the boat has been previously painted and is in good
shape, you may try to use the same type of paint that was
used previously. If it is not possible to determine what type
of paint was used, single-part paints can be applied over
other one-part paints and two-part paints. Unfortunately,
two-part paints cannot be applied over one-part paints,
so it might be best to stay with one-part paint. If the boat
has been previously painted and is in poor shape it will be
best to remove the paint back to bare and proceed with a
system for bare substrate.
"To get a good finish, all the paint systems will require
about the same preparation. Two-part paints are more
durable, keep their color and gloss longer, and are more
abrasion resistant than one-part paints but they are more
temperature and humidity sensitive as well as more
expensive than one-part paints. These factors must be
taken into consideration when choosing what to use.
"Areas where there is considerable foot traffic or harsh
abrasion such as gunwale rails and coaming sides, will need
frequent repair to keep them in pristine condition. Two-part
paints such as Perfection offers excellent resistanceto abrasion,
but can still wear through in excessive circumstances. One-
part systems are easier to touch up than high-performance,
two-part systems, and may be more suitable for these areas."
Tripp Nelson. Alexseal Yacht Coatings:
"Gelcoats are typically used only when you're building a
boat, where paints are used as a refinishing material. When
you're purchasing a fiberglass boat that was made on a
production line, they'll use gelcoat and they do that by
applying the material in a mold. After it cures, you pop it out
of the mold and you see the shiny gelcoat. If you're dealing
with custom built fiberglass, steel, wood or aluminum, they
will typically be painted from the manufacturer. With these
boats, as you're trying to refinish them after they've aged
for a while or if you just want to change the color, then the
most cost-efficient way is to use a paint, primarily a two-part
paint because it's more durable than a single-part paint.
"If you're looking at two-part paints, there are two
types on the market. One is an acrylic polyurethane, and
the other is a polyester-based polyurethane. The acrylic
comes from the automotive industry. The polyester, which
is what Alexseal is formulated from, comes from the
aviation industry. The aviation formulas tend to be a little
bit stronger coating with more solvent resistance and more
scratch resistance. If you think about the life of a car, it
doesn't go through the extremes an airplane goes through
-the temperature swings, the expansion and contractions
due to pressure changes, the abrasion caused by going 600
miles an hour through a rainstorm. That's whythe polyester-
based polyurethanes are a harder coating.
"If you look at your boat and how different areas of the boat
are used, you can actually choose your coating. In a non-skid
area or an area that you would walk on, you would always
want to use the hardest finish possible. Typically, if you have
cockpit area either on a sportfish or on a sailboat, people
are going to put the cooler down and drag it back and forth,
or you're going to have a lot of foot traffic, you would want
the hardest, most abrasion-resistant finish. That would be a
good place for a polyester-based polyurethane."
Jack Hickey. Blue Water Marine Paint:
"There are many generic topcoats used in the marine
paint industry, ranging from basic alkyd types to two-part
polyurethanes. Alkyd finishes may be sold as just that,
a single-pack product, which dries by metal oxidation.
Sometimes those products are modified with silicone
resin for maximum durability, with urethane alkyd resin for
improved film hardness and durability, and acrylic resins for
faster drying than other modifying resins.
Two-part finishes are usually composed of a base
component and a curing agent. Generically these
include epoxies, polyurethane, and both polyester
and vinyl ester. By far the most common are the two-
part polyurethanes, as they provide the ultimate in film
integrity and durability. Epoxy finishes tend to chalk on
exposure to UV light, and the esters are really designed
for gel coating or laminations.
"All topcoats are repairable but can require the use of
special buffing compounds and techniques. Generally,
repairing is simply a matter of sanding the area to be
repaired, applying fresh paint to the repaired area and then
buffing the repaired area and the surrounding area until a
uniform finish is achieved. Several companies, such as 3M,
sell special compounds for the repair of topcoat finishes.
"The choice of topcoat finish is usually made based on cost,
experience of application, desired appearance and durability.
Any topcoat finish can be applied to any generic substrate
provided the topcoat is part of a system which would normally
include select primers, filling and fairing compounds, sealers,
etc. The choice should be made after consultation with the
boatyard or marina that will do the finishing or with the facility
where the topcoat finishes are purchased."
Coming next month: The basic steps involved in prepping
and preparing for a topcoat paint job. Also, we'll have some
information tips if you want to tackle the job yourself, and
some advice on how to choose the right professional yard
for the job.

A WINNER THEN & NOW
BY CAROL M. BAREUTHER
T here's much more to the Highland Spring HIHO
than just who won and how much fun it is to com-
pete in this BVI-based boardsailing event. For one,
the 'new' event, run by Andy Morrell's Ocean Pro-
motions Ltd., celebrates its 15th year June 26th to July 3rd
and continues in its cutting-edge style by offering a Stand
Up Paddleboarding class (SUP) for the third year.
What many might not know is that this classic event was
conceived over 30 years ago, in the late 70s, during one
of the Caribbean's quintessential think-tank sessions, the
'happy hour'. Like the addition of a SUP class today, wind-
surfing was at its prime back then and the original Johnnie
Walker Hook-In-Hold-On (HIHO) quickly became the pre-
miere destination boardsailing competition of its kind. Rid-
ers then, like today, hailed from throughout the Caribbean
and the world, all drawn by the chance to eat, drink and sail
in point-to-point races that always ended at the next party.
One of these early board-sailors was St. Thomas' Chris
Thompson. "Back then it wasn't really a race, but survival, be-
cause none of us had really gone that distance," Thompson
-twtl~t - trit' ad iIhekm
_Shr~~ fg; r-�
tells. "I thinkthe first HIHO was from St. Thomas to White Bay
to Sandy Cay and then back to St. Thomas. The equipment
was the standard windsurfer, one sail and a dagger board,
which you pulled out and put on your shoulder when going
downwind. We all sailed with a backpack, and in that pack was
a knife, distress flag, money, passport, some water and a flash-
light. In those days it was sleeping in a tent or sleeping bag on
the beach. That first year nobody cared about winning, it was
just a lot of fun going on an adventure with friends and going
on a windsurferthat was basically just invented."
Morrell, who first raced in 1982 at age 18 and who bought
and started running the event as a business in 1993 after
Johnnie Walker dropped its sponsorship seven years be-
fore, says, "We competed on longboards with centerboards
and sliding mast tracks during those early years. Then, we
switched to only racing short boards when I took over. One
of the big changes we made was providing equipment, so
racers only have to fly in with their harness."

Recreational windsurfers, and now SUPers, have always
been the main draw for the HIHO. Yet, inevitably, pro-
windsurfers such as Antigua's Eli Fuller and Brazil's Wilhelm
Schurmann picked up on and entered the event.
"I most liked the racing at HIHO," says Fuller, who compet-
ed in several events between 1985 and 2009, "but, being with
the other racers all day every day while we raced, ate, partied,
was unique and something that kept us coming back."
Schurmann first sailed in 2008. "The two years I raced the
Highland Spring HIHO, I had some really nice close com-
petition with Jean Marc from St. Martin and other competi-
tors. Both times the winds favored my way and I managed
to win it. Though I still did not manage to win the Costume
Pirate Party, maybe this year ..."
Slater Trout, one of the best SUPers in the world, will be
competing in this year's Highland Spring HIHO.
The strength of the HIHO has always been its route
through the BVI and combination of great racing and fun
parties, says Morrell. "That portion of the event has re-
mained more or less the same since the start."
Today, the popularity of the HIHO has grown from a sin-
gle event into a year-round clothing brand.
"This evolved from the cool event T-shirts we designed
back in the 1990s," says Morrell. "We started making
T-shirts, rash guards and beach bags but the line has ex-
panded to beach cover-ups, linen sweaters and shirts and
wonderful cotton T's and dresses."
Perhaps the most defining aspects of the Highland
Spring HIHO are its sustaining popularity, its ability to
change and adapt with the board sports times and, es-
pecially for Morrell, its ability to come full-circle. "I won
the event in 1986 and Josh, my eldest son, won in 2009,"
Morrell says. "Great fun!" -�

BVI'S PREMIER'S CUP
SET FOR JULY 8 TO 11
BY CAROL M. BAREUTHER
T en youth teams from throughout the Caribbean
are expected to set sail in the Premier's Cup Inter-
national Youth Regatta, set for July 8th to11th, out
of Tortola. The race will be on to see which team, if
any, can top St. Thomas' three-year winning streak. Anguilla
and the BVI almost did, finishing second and third, respec-
tively, at the 2010 event.
"The unique aspect of this regatta is that it's a team
event," says organizer Tom Gerker. "It is harder for young
people to worktogether as a team than as individuals. KATS
(Kids and the Sea, a youth seamanship program) is the first
time that many of our kids have ever had to work as a team.
Working with others is a necessary part of life and so it is an
important life lesson. The other emphasis of the regatta is
for our youth to get together with their counterparts from
other countries to meet and develop friendships."
Teams of six junior sailors each will compete in IC24s
donated by the vessel owners and managed by Racing in
Paradise. Races will be windward/leeward, with the number
of laps to be determined by wind conditions.
"Races take around 20 to 30 minutes each to complete, so
we get in lots of races-typically 18 in two days," says Gerker.
Off the water, the fostering of friendships takes place
at the 'tent village' erected on the ground of the Nanny
Cay Resort & Marina. Two tents per team-and a few extra
to house girls if there are one or two girls on a team-are
set up a few feet from one another making for a very close
"We emphasize the fellowship aspect of the event as
much as the competitive sailing," says Gerker. "So a team
does not have to be extremely proficient to participate.
They do need to be able to safely sail a keel boat around
the buoys without hitting anyone. Many of our novice teams
come without a full understanding of the Racing Rules. So
we encourage them to hang back on starts and bear off in
tight situations where they are not sure who has Right of
Way. Within a few races, they build understanding and con-
fidence. At the end of the day, if the kids have fun, get to
meet some new friends and display good sportsmanship,
they are winners in everyone's book."
A large catamaran donated by the Moorings will take
spectators out during both days of racing.
"Everyone is invited to come out with their families and
watch the racing up close," says Gerker.
The Premier's Cup International Youth Regatta is spon-
sored by KATS BVI in cooperation with the Rotary and Ro-
taract Clubs of the BVI. For more information, Email: Tom@

CARIBBEAN TO THE CORE
BY GARY E. BROWN
"Overall, great weather, great wind, good participation and a lot of fun," said Donald Curtis, one of
the regatta organizers and the MC at the awards ceremony.
T his was the ninth Anguilla Regatta and I have been
to every one. As a journalist, I should remain im-
partial, but when it comes to the Anguilla Regatta,
it gets my vote as one of the best on the Carib-
Over the years the Anguilla Regatta has gone through a
few changes as they explored ways to attract more boats.
This year it was obvious that funding for the three-day event
had been cut back. If it was a problem, the organizers didn't
show it, and put on the best regatta to date with 22 boats
"One of the big surprises was the multihull class," said
Andrew Rapley, race officer for the regatta. "Not only were
there more multihulls but, boy, were they good. They were
on the line on time, on speed, and it was a real exciting
class to see."
While the ex Route de Rhum trimaran Dauphin Tele-
corn flew around the course, Robbie Ferron's Lagoon 410
Katzenellenbogen, slugged it out with the Brazapi 41
Guimamalou. The two cruising cats pushing it to the edge
of protest while scrapping over a mark in the Anguilla
Channel on day one. Both boats went on to score an equal
number of points over the series. However, having won
the sixth and final race, rules dictate that overall victory be
handed to Guimamalou.
If Ferron was disappointed to be relegated to second
place, he didn't show it and, at the awards ceremony,
praised the regatta, calling it "a bumper year."
For three days, boats sailed beneath acres of grey cloud.
Rare conditions for the Caribbean, but most welcome by
the sailors manning the windward rail.
Although winds remained in the 10 to 12 knot range
there was plenty of drama and, for the largest boat in the
fleet, it began on the first day. Rounding a mark set close
to the beach in Rendezvous Bay, Nico Cortleve's X 612
Nix ran aground. Although stuck for several minutes, the
sporting skipper made little fuss over the grounding and
went on to claim second place overall in cruising class.
This class was dominated by St. Maarten's Sir Bobby Ve-

Maarten Sailing School. Steyn's crew of trainees received
quite a workout on the foredeck, often gybing the pole on
the long downwind leg on day one and again during the
windward/leeward courses on day two. Crossing the start
on Friday, the trainees received a lesson in 'how not to do
it' when the boat ahead crossed the line early and turned
back, colliding with Moondance. Steyn made light of the
incident and his novice crew went on to score six bullets
and win cruising class.
Sunday, the final day, and the combined fleet got a
better view of the traditional West Indies Work Boats,
the Carriacou Sloops, in vintage class. Given their own
class and courses, the work boats bring something spe-
cial to the Anguilla Regatta. Alexis Andrews-who is do-
ing so much to promote the building and preservation of
Carriacou Sloops-won the class with Genesis, and one
wonders if there is another sloop on the circuit that can
For the last race, yachts follow the popular 'triangle'
course. The first leg takes them from Sandy Ground,
northeast, to Crocus Bay. Local knowledge can pay mas-
sive dividends on this part of the race. The same goes
for any race that finishes in Road Bay, where many com-
petitors, unaware of the punishing wind-shifts inshore,
have had victory torn from their grasp. Having raced in
Anguilla many times, Frits Bus, owner/skipper of the
Melges 24 Team Coors Light, knows about the wind-
shifts and how to play them. Going into the final race,

Kick 'em Jenny, Bus hit all the right notes to finish first
overall in spinnaker class.
One boat that that will remember the final race is Panic
Attack. Jan van den Eynde's Open 750, forced out at the
committee boat end, lost someone overboard while ma-
neuvering. So quickly was the swimmer recovered that she
barely had time to get wet!
"Overall, great weather, great wind, good participation
and a lot of fun," said Donald Curtis, one of the regatta
organizers and the MC at the awards ceremony.
Curtis noted that all the money generated by the An-
guilla Regatta goes towards the Anguilla Youth Sailing
Program and promised a special regatta to mark the tenth
anniversary in 2012.

PROFILE: MIKE CHILDERS
SINGLE-HANDER AND COMPUTER PROGRAMMER
BY KERRY BIDDLE-CHADWICK
I f the guy rowing up to your boat with an engineless
dinghy and a cheery greeting is barefoot and wearing
a shirt with the sleeves cut off, the chances are you have
Mike Childers sorting out your navigation program for
you. Childers is a single-hander and computer boffin.
Childers is know by everyone as 'Quinn', the name of the
20-foot boat on which he began his sailing adventures. In
1994, he bought a 28-foot Bristol Channel Cutter named
Tuntsa, and that has been home ever since.
Over the years, Childers circumnavigated the South Pa-
cific three times. On the final round he ended up in Australia
where he stayed for a while before sailing to South Africa.
Later, he cross the Atlantic to Brazil, and from there made
his way to St. Maarten, which became his winter base.
During the winter months, Childers sets up his navigation
program and trains people in its use. Around early June,
and to avoid the hurricane season, he sails to his base in
the Azores, and does the same again there. While in the
Azores, he will often sail to Europe and back, before, once
again, turning his bows towards St. Maarten. As Childers
puts it "making circles in the Atlantic."
Being a computer programmer has stood Childers in
good stead. He saw the need for an easy to use navigation
program for not-so-computer-savvy cruisers, and built one.
Now his program can be found on boats all over the world.
A favorite story told about the programmer is when
world cruisers Ken Kleinhoff and Gail Barber-Kleinhoff of
the yacht Sangreal got married in South Africa. Childers
never wears shoes, and when they asked him to be best
man, he arrived at court with a button-up shirt, tie, neat
shorts - and barefoot. To his credit, the judge didn't say
a word and proceeded with the ceremony as though this
was an everyday occurrence.
Childers has logged over 100,000 blue-water miles-
every one as a single-hander. Asked how he sets up his
watches, he laughed and glanced around to see if anyone
was listening. Leaning forward, he said: "I don't. I spend
90 percent of my time down below doing stuff and resting,
and ten percent of the time up on deck. Every so often I do
stick my head out for a good look around, though."
The computer whizz says that being alone on the ocean
has never been a problem. Books and music keep his
mind occupied on those long trips across the ocean and
being a friendly, personable kind of guy, he has friends in
Quinn's Atlantic Crossing Forums, held annually at La-
goonies bar and restaurant in St. Maarten, are extremely
popular and the last attracted almost 100 would-be voy-
agers. At the forum, he discussed some of the problems
sailors may encounter, described the best routes, weather
planning, and a host of other details that might affect an
"It's the trip across from St. Maarten that is the more dif-
ficult," says Childers. "The trip back is a milk run." -&

SAILOR, CARIBBEAN BOAT BUILDER, TRUE GENTLEMAN
BY ROBERT LUCKOCK
Malcolm on El Tigre
in the 1980s
"Malcolm was so talented. He was the finest
artisan I'd ever met," says Westmoreland.
"He was a woodworker, carpenter, shipwright,
cabinet maker. He could build anything.
He and Peter made a dynamic team."
M alcolm Maidwell, who passed away at his
home in St. Maarten on May 7 2011 aged
73 after a long battle against cancer, will be
best remembered by a younger generation
for his immense contribution to sports in the early 1980s
on a still under developed island.
But he will be equally remembered by an older genera-
tion for his earlier career as a sailor, charter boat skipper,
and boat builder.
As the driving force behind a variety of sports and forming
of clubs and associations, he converted many a sedentary soul
into a weekend warrior with infectious enthusiasm and persua-
sive charm. His influence left a lasting legacy that was recogn-
ised with a decoration by Queen Beatrix of Holland in 2005.
* Born in Johannesburg, South Africa, as an only child
to a builder father and housewife mother, Malcolm had
various jobs but was never entirely satisfied. Learning
about building, carpentry, and house design from his fa-
ther, however, would stand him in good stead later. He
also learnt to sail from an early age becoming an accom-
plished dinghy sailor.
Yearning for travel and adventure, and to escape the
apartheid situation, he quit his job with Colgate Pal-
molive in 1963 and at the age of 25 set off from South
Africa with a work colleague for an intended round the
world voyage on a 25ft sloop called Banshee that they
Circumnavigation plans changed however and they end-
4 ed up in Grenada where he met his future wife Liz, a nurse
from the UK, then 23 and visiting her parents who lived
there. They married a year later in 1964.
Malcolm sold Banshee and bought the 42ft sloop Vaga-
bond on which he started week-long charters from St. Vincent
to Grenada or ten-day charters from Martinique to Grenada.
At the time Malcolm and Liz were running the first charter boat
business in Grenada. A later purchase of the 70ft sloop Arnica
did not work out as well, Malcolm preferring the intimacy of
smaller boats for charters, and it was subsequently sold.
During this time he became firm friends with the late Pe-
ter Spronk, a Dutch boat designer of repute who also ran

charters. Spronk wanted to build catamarans in St. Maarten
and in 1971 he started a boat building business called
Lanseair, with Malcolm as equal partner. They set up their
first yard on the beach in Simpson Bay.
St. Maarten soon became a Mecca for boat building and
the reputable Spronk stable produced a string of thorough-
bred catamarans - around 30 by some estimates - for vari-
ous owners, that have stood the test of time.
The first catamarans built in Simpson Bay were Bluebeard
and Scharlaken Rackham. The yard later moved to Cole Bay
where Maho, the giant 75ft Palu, the schooner-rigged El Ti-
gre, Falcon, Pink Panther, Shadowfax, Tiamia, Princess Soya,
Egg Nog, Bits and Pieces, and more, were all produced.
Palu was the largest catamaran in the world at the time.
It was leased by French sailor Marc Pajot who sailed it sin-
glehandedly from Martinique to La Rochelle, France, as a
qualifier for the Route de Rhum.
Working with Peter, Malcolm and Dougie Brooks in the
construction yard was Grenadian carpenter Lewis St. Ber-
nard, now 69, who crewed on Spronk's own Blue Crane, and
Frank Boekhout, then a teacher in Philipsburg, who assisted
in building the first two cats from 1971-1972.
"We all worked well together as one team, no matter
what our backgrounds were," remembers Lewis. "There
were never misunderstandings and nobody got mad. Just
some teasing if someone made a booboo. Every day after
work Malcolm would run all the way up to White Sands. He
always wanted to keep fit."

Added St. Bernard: "It was the most beautiful year of my
life. I remember the practical jokes."
Jon Westmoreland, current owner/skipper of the Spronk
catamaran Akka, met Malcolm in 1972 and helped out with
many of the launching.
"Malcolm was so talented. He was the finest artisan I'd
ever met," says Westmoreland. "He was a woodworker, car-
penter, shipwright, cabinet maker. He could build anything.
He and Peter made a dynamic team."
Westmoreland also remembers Malcolm as someone
who always went out of his way to help people.
"You don't see much of the Good Samaritan in this day
and age. He was special."
Malcolm was also instrumental in starting the St. Maarten
Tradewind Race with Peter Spronk in 1975. The 1,000 mile
race through the Caribbean islands was open to all boats
and always began with the firing of a canon from Great Bay.
The event continued for five years until 1979.
Malcolm is survived by his wife Liz, and four children:
Mark, Suzy, Michael, and Sandra. -&

WEST INDIES REGATTA
GENESIS SWEEPS TO VICTORY
BY ELLEN LAMPERT-GREAUX
I n tribute to traditional working sailboats that carried
merchandise from island to island in the 1950-60s,
the third edition of the West Indies Regatta took
place on the weekend of May 1st in Saint Barth.
Organized by Loulou Magras and Alexis Andrews, a
photographer from Antigua, the regatta included eight
Carriacou Sloops and one schooner, the Alexander
Hamilton, restored by those who love the spirit of tra-
Guest of honor was the 180-foot square-rigger Picton
Castle, a sail training ship and a real eye-catcher at her
berth alongside the main dock.
With winds of 15-20 knots from the east, and fairly calm
seas, Charles Hambleton, skipper of Summer Cloud, got
off to a great start and led the first day's race right to the
finish line, before losing by a nose to Alexis Andrews
Sunday, and day two again saw Summer Cloud and Gen-
esis at the head of the fleet during the morning race from
Gustavia to Fourchue and Colombier, with Genesis first
over the finish line once more. After a picnic lunch in Co-
lombier, a second race, starting at 3pm, tookthe boats from
Colombier, via le Bceuf and Pain de Sucre, back to the finish
Once again victory went to Genesis, earning the sloop
maximum points and making her the overall winner of the
third annual West Indies Regatta.
Before leaving to sail back to Antigua, Andrews said
he hoped more boats, including schooners, would par-
ticipate next year. For the sailors, there was good news
from the Port of Gustvaia, who promised that the week-
end of May 1st would always be reserved for the West

Naval, Rescue and Coastguard ships from the Netherlands,
the United States, Curagao, France, Colombia and Mexico
filled the harbor and wharfs in Punda and Otrabanda.
The Dutch submarine HLNMS Dolfijn turned out to be the
biggest attraction. Long queues didn't bother locals or tour-

ous activities. At night, thousands gathered at Brion Square
for a performance bythe band of the Marine Corps.
On Sunday, 400 runners took part in the 'Queens Run'

after Dutch Queens. The Maritime Museum, adjacent to
Kleine Wharf, organized a drawing competition for schools,
which was won by the MC Piarschool. The winning class re-

SECRETS OF BOCAS DELTORO
STORY AND PHOTOS BY RAY JASON
B ocas del Toro, Panama, lies in the southwestern
curve of the Caribbean. Those who have found it,
consider it the undiscovered Caribbean.
These are some of the pleasures of Bocas del
Toro: Dozens of unspoiled and often deserted anchorages.
Three modern marinas complete with interesting features
and friendly staff. A laid-back and friendly town (a secret
once shared only by backpackers and surfers), reasonably
priced provisioning and scores of interesting ex-pats scat-
tered around the islands.
Bocas del Toro is the name of the main town, but it also re-
fers to the archipelago surrounding it. There are nine major
islands and dozens of smaller ones. Many of the little ones
are mangrove islands that don't exceed periscope height.
But the larger islands have elevations in the hundreds of
feet, which creates a gorgeous tapestry of plant and animal
life. Here, you can find flora as diverse as bananas, cacao
and bamboo, and fauna as charming as toucans, sloths and
The area is essentially an inland sea, which means you
can savor a good sailing breeze without having to suffer
from big, confused waves. If you don't like the sea condi-
tions in one direction, then head off to another equally en-
chanting destination. The backdrop for this mostly tranquil
cruising area is an incredible mountain range capped by
the 10,000ft Volcan Baru.
The reefs are young and healthy and the most spec-
tacular, at Zapatillos Cays, is protected as part of a Pan-
amanian Marine Preserve. The shallow water off Starfish
Beach, filled with its namesake echinoderms, is a delight-
ful anchorage. Another, that boasts fantastic body surfing,
is just a short walk from the Red Frog Marina. A rental bike
from town will take you to one of the great surfer spots
known as Bluff Beach.
Bocas del Toro waterfront.
After a day spent enjoying time on or in the water; a
wealth of drinking and dining options awaits you. I'm
amazed at how many good, reasonably-priced bars and
restaurants this little town supports. In Bocas you can be-
gin your evening's revelries aboard an old shrimp boat
converted into a bar and end the night at a disco perched
atop an underwater wreck.
The Red Frog Marina features a nice restaurant/bar over-
looking the body-surfing beach and a very cordial BYOB
happy hour most evenings on the dock. There is also excel-
lent hiking in the surrounding hills.
Marina Carenero is the budget cruisers' friend. They host
a Friday evening dockside pot luck and offer a great view of
the mighty four-story skyscrapers of Bocas Town. Any place
where the palm trees are higher than the buildings scores
points with me.
Of the three marinas, my favorite is the Bocas Marina.
It features good modern concrete docks, reliable water,
electricity and WiFi, clean shower rooms, beautifully land-
scaped grounds, laundry service, propane runs and a very
helpful and professional staff.
This marina is also the home of one of the world's great
cruisers' bars. The Calypso Cantina, and hosts, Dyllan and Dar-
rion, serve up superb food and drink. They combine this with
all sorts of extra events such as swap meets, DVD exchanges,
fire shows, movie nights, all in a take-your-breath-away set-
ting. The bar juts out on a narrow peninsula with the anchored
boats on one flank and the marina docks on the other.
This magical place is so alluring that many cruisers
have swallowed the hook here. It is still possible to buy

affordable waterfront property and then have a nice
house built on it. To complete the dream, you just sink a
mooring and enjoy happy hour admiring your boat from
your front porch.
Panama has recently streamlined its clearance and cruising
procedures. Upon arrival, you will receive a six month cruis-
ing permit, which is easily renewed for another half-year for
an additional $30.
You will not find U.S. style chandleries, but most items
can be obtained locally or shipped in from Panama City. For
trickier requests the Bocas Marina represents Marine Ware-
house of Miami, and a shipment arrives every few weeks.
Technicians for electronics, dinghy repair, or refrigeration
are all available. And the news is that a full-service boatyard
should be online in about a half a year.
As I finish up this article, I can look out of my porthole and
see Jimmy Buffett's yacht docked about 40-yards from my
little sloop, Aventura. This is his second visit. A few years
ago he sat on a barstool in the Calypso Cantina strumming
and singing for a couple of hours to the delight of a few
dozen cruisers. If Jimmy chooses to chill out in Bocas del
Toro, it probably says far more about what a great place this
is, than any words of mine. -&

Instead of serving a 'several-course' meal when you are
entertaining this summer, try a balanced salad 'serve
yourself' meal. The secret is the best of everything fresh,
like local sustainable ingredients from your nearby farm-
er or farmer's market. Try serving the ingredients, salads and
protein separately, so everyone can choose what they like.

8 cups mixed mesclun greens
1/2 cup cilantro
1/2 cup chopped shallots
6 baby fresh carrots, chopped
1 red bell pepper, stem and seeds

chopped, and rinsed well
1/2 cup sliced fresh radishes
1 Ib cooked spicy shrimp (recipe below)

shrimp. Serve with Ginger Scallion Dressing (recipe below)
