8 ALLATSEA.NET NOVEMBER 2011 Editors Log In times of recession, perhaps the best thing you can do is go sailing and, judging by the number of boats taking part in the various offshore rallies, that is just what many people are doing this year! I have never been one for organized events but the thought of joining one of the rallies grows more attractive as time goes by. The Atlantic Rally for Cruisers, better known as The ARC, is again looking at a record number of boats leaving Las Palmas for St. Lucia in November. Similar can be said for the Caribbean 1500, which is now run by the same organization as The ARC. In a surprising move, a cruising couple, who have participated in many rallies and sailed thousands of blue-water miles, have gone ahead and started an offshore rally of their own. The Salty Dog Rally has already attracted a nice number of boats and I see no reason why this event wont grow in the future. Having spoken to lots of people who have taken part in rallies, I have yet to hear one person say they didnt have fun. For more on this years slew of offshore rallies, take a look at our features beginning on page 44. As I sat down to right this months Editors Log, the remains of a six-ton UARS satellite plunged into the Paci“c Ocean off the US west coast, adding yet more junk to our already hurting seas. Here on St. Martin, I recently took part in the annual Ocean Conservancy International Coastal Cleanup and helped remove a huge amount of garbage, much of it plastic, from one of our most popular beaches. Now Gary E. Brown, Editor RALLIES, RUBBISH AND REVERSE the good news, the amount of trash was down on that of last year. Of course there are plenty of reasons why that could be, but I like to think we are all taking more care when disposing of our junk especially now that its falling out of the sky. Getting a boat to move can be dif“cult enough, but the fun really begins when you cant get a boat to stop. Two embarrassing moments come to mind. The “rst took place while I worked for a boat builder. It was always a grand time when we launched a new boat and on this particular day the job of launching, and then motoring the yacht into the marina, fell to me. Our police escort had returned to the station, the crane had lowered the yacht ceremoniously into the commercial harbor and I was ready in the cockpit with the engine running. With the new owner on the bow, I slipped the boat into gear and we began our maiden voyage. Wanting to impress the owner, I increased the engine revs and we entered the marina in “ne style. The yachts temporary berth was at the far corner of the marina, between the high harbor wall and the last “nger pier. To get there we had to motor between two long pontoons crowded with boats and their ogling crews. Everything was going perfectly, the proud owner waved his captains hat towards the onlookers as they complemented him on his lovely new boat and as one of the builders I bathed in the afterglow. About 50-yards from the berth, I thought it wise to slow down and pulled back on the throttle. It wouldnt move. I pulled harder and the whole throttle assembly came off in my hand. The owner screamed in horror as we charged towards the harbor wall. I was no Captain Ron and we hit the granite with an almighty crack that hurled the owner through the air into the harbor and left the new pulpit pointing skywards like the branches of a tree stuck by lightening. The second incident involved my wife and a bucket on the end of a rope but at the risk of a divorce, Ill leave that story for another edition ƒ NASA

16 ALLATSEA.NET NOVEMBER 2011 Caribbean NewsCARIBBEAN NEWS A BRIEF LOOK INTO THE HAPPENINGS OF OUR WORLD An-Tiki goes walkaboutSaint Martin … The raft An-Tiki, which was sailed across the Atlantic to St. Maarten in April, broke lose from her moorings during the passing of Tropical Storm Maria and landed on the beach in the Simpson Bay Lagoon. The raft suffered no damage and was later re”oated by Amcon Lagoon Diving Services and placed on a secure mooring for the rest of the hurricane season. David Hildred, who, with Captain Anthony Smith, John Russell and Andrew Bainbridge sailed the raft from the Canary Islands, said a local boatyard had promised to haul the raft for the hurricane season but that offer had fallen through. Captain Smith thanked Amcon for moving An-Tiki and said that raft and crew hope to continue their voyage to Eleuthera, their original destination in the Bahamas, in the spring.Back to School Regatta Nanny Cay, BVI … There are some events that you just have to report on and the Royal BVI Yacht Club Back to School Regatta is one of them. Over the weekend of September 10th …11th an amazing group of youngsters battled through rough seas, high winds, thunder, lightening, rain squalls and capsizes yet managed to “nish the regatta smiling. Although some of the youngsters found conditions a little too rough to carry on, they were encouraged not to give up as it takes some time to build up con“dence, especially after a long summer break. Those look ing for inspiration found it in Mia Nicolski from the USVI. Mia, who is only eight-years old and weighs 50lb, was way out of her comfort zone but after some coaching she went on to complete every race. Her skill and determination earned her the sportsmanship medal.CarriCOOS Data Buoys UpdateIn September we published an article written by All At Sea senior writer Carol M. Bareuther detailing the deployment of CariCOOS data buoys around Puerto Rico and the USVI. As we reported, all CariCOOS buoys, which are critical to the welfare of mariners both commercial and recreational, were deployed on sites selected after extensive consultations with stakeholders in PR and the USVI. In response to this article we were contacted by Professor Jorge E. Corredor, Ph.D., CariCOOS Council Chairman & Observing System Coordinator. Professor Corredor noted that among other assets, CariCOOS also operates a network of hurricane hardened weather stations distributed throughout Puerto Rico and the USVI and said the organization would be grateful if we could assist them by publishing the CariCOOS banner. This we are delighted to do. For further information, contact: www.caricoos.org JANET BROWN/OCEANMEDIA An-Tiki was towed from the beach by Amcon Lagoon Diving Services.

Emergency VHF antenna mounts instantlyTime is of the essence in an emergency, so quickly “nding and mounting a spare VHF antenna can make all the difference. The 5910 Emergency Stowable Antenna from Shakespeare Electronic Products Group is easy to spot, grab, and connect, helping save valuable minutes. A nine-inch, bright yellow metal tube helps protect the antenna during storage and becomes part of the mounting system. It hangs neatly on a bulkhead, or wherever its accessible yet out of the way. Pre-installing the included mounting clip helps prepare the antenna for use. In an emergency, the user simply removes the cable and ”exible whip from the tube, mounts the antenna securely on top, and then slides the tube onto the mounting clip. After assembly, the antenna is 16in long. The dependable VHF whip comes with 20 of RG174 mini coax cable and a pre-installed PL-259 connector. The Shakespeare 5910 Emergency Stowable Antenna is backed by a two year warranty. For more information, visit: www.shakes peare-marine.com NEW PRODUCTSSolid lubricant is easy to apply to zippers and snapsNothing can be more annoying than trying to undue a seized snap or zipper and have it come away in your hand. That can often happen when snaps and zippers suffer from the corroding effects of rain, dirt and grime, resulting in a mechanism that either sticks or rips the surrounding canvas or plastic. Shurholds Snap-Sticks waterresistant lubricant helps prevent those minor battles with a quick dab. Offered in a handy twist-tube, non-toxic Snap-Stick is easy to apply. Users apply to one side of the zipper or snap. Then, they close or zip to apply to the other side. Protection from corrosion lasts up to three months with a single application. Unlike liquid or spray lubricants that drip, Snap-Stick wont harm gelcoat, clear coat, upholstery or fabric. For more information, visit: www.shurhold.com

20 ALLATSEA.NET NOVEMBER 2011 Sailing Humor BY CAPN FATTY GOODLANDER I was recently contacted by a Major International Marine Publication, and asked to write a series of articles to attract the younger set. ƒyou know the drill, Fatty,Ž its ancient, oh-so-British editor wheezed into the telephone, something witty and topical ƒ say, Hauling Out with Brittany Spears or Team Racing with Charlie Sheen or Jennifer Aniston Breaks Up with her latest Sailor Boy in St. BartsƒŽ ƒsomething to appeal to the kiddies?Ž I queried. Exactly,Ž the editor said. Put it in their vernacular. Mix in some quotes with Angelina Jolie and Brad-theBoyfriend. Toss in the F-bomb now and again. Relate the whole spiel to Matt Damon and his African Water Rights campaign. Sprinkle with a few semi-nude pics of George Clooney for good measure. Mention zits. Or tits. Whatever! Make it MTV-ish.Ž ƒso that the average college drop-out would, like, stop lavishing their precious money on Apple Products and, like, buy a 72-foot Oyster ketch for three mil?Ž Precisely,Ž sighed the editor. Although Id think a BendyToe 48 would make a slightly better beginners boat to learn how to sail aboard. But youve got the right idea, Fatty. The average age of our subscriber base is now approaching three digits, while their collective IQ has dipped to around “fty. We must do something drastic or this once”agship publication will die along with us. So, as distasteful as it may be, weve turned to you to take the pulse of our next generation of loyal subscribers!Ž ƒwhich was ”attering, of course. But it dawned on me just how crazy it was to ask a 59-year old to write for twenty somethings and that the old codger asking was probably so ancient that he lumped us all together, generation-wise. In addition, I loved the loyal comment„this from a man whose corporation was purchased more often than a Liverpool hooker. However, I caught a faint whiff of condescension clinging to his request. So I decided that a little facetime was in order with the editor. After all, it would be silly to go off half-cocked.SELLING OUT TO THE MEDIA MOGULSWELL, ALMOST! Capn Fatty Goodlander at his writing desk aboard Wild Card


NOVEMBER 2011 ALLATSEA.NET 21ƒIve always preferred to be fully-cocked, as most real men do. But where was I? Ah, yes ƒ I dashed to London and grabbed a taxi to their editorial of“ces. (The taxi fare was far more than I make per magazine feature„but, hey, Im an artist and thus used to such humiliation.) On the transatlantic ”ight„in between ”irting with the stew and attempting to spot the nervous air marshal„I studied the publication in question with laser-like attention. By that I mean that I completely ignored its editorial content„ and analyzed the ads. Polydent had the back cover. Readers Digest had a half page. Viagra had a two-page spread. There were smaller ads in the back for seagoing elevators and escalators, mar-less cane tips, waterproof Medical Alert collars, and Gor-tex eating bibs by Henry Lloyd. Finally, I turned my attention to the editorial content. The “rst article which caught my eye was: Which Floating Wheel Chair is Right for You? The next article was aimed at the racing crowd, and explained the new Bermuda race class which allowed only non-professional sailors with Alzheimers aboard. (Each participant would be required to wear a PFD with their childrens mobile phone numbers pinned to it.) There was even an article pointing out the merits of bringing along a domestic slave to pre-chew the galley fare for the truly laid-back sailor of advanced years. And I had to smile at the full page color advertisement featuring Mister Americas Cup Himself, Dennis-the-Menace. It was pretty clever. There he was, opulently and coyly sprawled in the cockpit of Stars and Strips wearing an adult diaper, and the caption-blurb by his chubby little mouth asked the question: What Do You Wear for the Americas Cup? His answer was, Depends!Ž Yes, it was immediately clear to me that they really werent pitching the publication strictly to teenagers. One thing I love about the latest crop of these global magazines it that they arent shy. It is always WORLD this, and WORLD that. For instance, the popular Greed World. And theres Tax Cheat Universe And my personal favorite: Yachting Billionaires„Milky Way Edition. It turns out the editorial conference Id demanded at International Publication (IPT) Towers was sparsely attended because many of the other editors already had, well, died. Some were merely embalmed. Still others were cryonically preserved. The editor who had contacted me was named Richard Louis George. He was typical old money, and named after Richard the Lionhearted, Louis the XIV, and King George„ all who were famous relative/scammers swinging from his Family Tree. Nor was it easy to sneak my hand through


22 ALLATSEA.NET NOVEMBER 2011 Sailing Humor all the medical hoses running in and out of him (his of“ce chair/medical bed allowed him only a half-sitting posture), nor to lie and say briskly, ƒlooking good, Ritchie-babe!Ž ƒyes, he was old. But, still, he retained a few of his marbles. Actually, I found his tales of being in combat as a young man (on the losing side of Americas Revolutionary war) rather amusing. But soon we got down to brass tacks. ƒwhat the hell do these young kids actually want ?Ž he asked. Oh, thats easy,Ž I said. They want to get paid without working, laid without accepting responsibility, and not be bothered by the twisted morality of their elders.Ž Richie appeared shocked at my glibness. ƒHow the hell do you know that ?Ž he sputtered. ƒin essence, todays kids want to become tomorrows adults„no matter how futile, dead-end, dreary, boring, and hopeless that route might be,Ž I said, and squinted wisely. ƒHmmmm,Ž he said in a very distinguished, British way, ƒsum it up for me Fat Boy? Put it in a nutshell. Be pithy. Throw me a sound-biteƒŽ You dont have to be an analytic genius to notice that the fastest growing segment of the marine market is the Super-Mega-OMG-yachts. Thus, more and more members of the marine industry are frantically servicing fewer and fewer masters. Also theres a Great Recession in the United States„just a reminder, in case you were so busy counting money that you forgot. Generally-speaking, college kids who have never had a job cant purchase the Maltese Falcon to week-end aboard, not unless their credit card limit is exceptionally high. Plus, while it might have been romantic for us ”ower-power children of the 60s to quit our jobs and go ganja-sailing to the Caribbean„this option isnt quite so romantic if youre starving to death in a Philadelphia soup line. Yes its hard to hunger for the open sea when youre really hungering for a Big Mac and fries. Freedom is best enjoyed on a full belly. Weve given this current generation Big Dreams. They want to soar. Unfortunately, weve economically clipped their wings at the same time. Weve selfishly spent their future enjoying our recent past„and now the frustrated, angry pigeons are coming home to roost.Ž How depressing,Ž the editor huffed. That line Freedom is best enjoyed on a full belly, hurt the most. Why cant ordinary citizens realize that that is what they are„ordinary! Why cant they be content going to St. Barts, climbing up the hills above Gustavia, and looking down on us Chosen Few playing aboard our hyper-yachts? Why cant they grasp that fact that the term exclusivity means excluding them ?Ž I realized we were getting into some deep intellectual territory here„and warned myself not to blurt, Heavy shit, mon!Ž as I would have done if we were conversing at, say, Woodstock or in a hot tub at Esalen. ƒIm just pointing out that the iPad generation is a tad different than the Me-Me-Me-And-Who-the-Hell-CaresAbout-the-Rest generation,Ž I said. I mean, you and I might think of the free-wheeling corporate raiders who recently looted Wall Street as delightfully naughty rogues„ but they didnt steal our future.Ž ƒcant they simply let bygones be bygones,Ž he mused wryly. I mean, all this anger about global warming„dont they realize it was vastly cheaper for us wellheeded corporate types to do it that way„that we were, quite naturally, thinking only of our self-interests la Ayn Rand? I mean, how exactly does having a planet capable of supporting life in the long term equate to short-term corporate equity? It doesnt! Is it our fault we shook the money tree a bit too hard? We didnt make these dogeat-dog rules, we merely accepted them. Its a jungle out there, Fatty! If we hadnt of ripped off this generation, someone else world have ƒŽ The man had a point. Regardless, I decided Id had enough. Just because Id personally sold out years ago didnt mean I had to linger at the funeral. I dont think you need a marine writer,Ž I said, as much as a therapist and undertaker, in that order.

NOVEMBER 2011 ALLATSEA.NET 23 Charlie departed the BVI bound for Florida with a greenhorn, and a big horn (he never stopped talking about girls) on a used 40ft sloop. He told me his story: We encountered a tropical wave, torrential rain, lightning and strong winds; the autopilot broke and the engine overheated. The cooling systems checked out so we decided to reduce RPMs and that did the trick but still it was a worry. Eight days later we entered the Fort Lauderdale inlet, doused sails and motored slowly up the waterway. We rounded the last bend and saw our marina 100-yards down the channel and just the other side of the bridge. And the bridge was open! I got Bighorn to take the wheel and quick as a ”ash I was on the VHF. Hold the bridge, were coming through,Ž I pleaded with the bridge keeper. Youd better hurry,Ž was the reply. Gun it,Ž I said, and we approached the bridge at seven knots. Suddenly steam rose from the engine compartment and the alarm came on. We were now 20-yards from the bridge. Angry motorists were peering down at us„then the engine stopped! We ghosted under the bridge. The end of our marina T dock was open but should we try for it with no engine? (No reverse = no brakes.) Wed rigged lines and fenders previously; Greenhorn was on the bow with line and movable fender, Bighorn was amidships with aft spring and stern line. Still with some momentum and a slight current we steered at the dock at about two knots. Well, youve never seen a jump like it; Bighorn must have jumped six-feet to reach the dock, he teetered backwards for a second but steadied himself in time to get that essential spring line on. The stern line was next and young Greenhorn was perfect with the fender. The posh marinas in Fort Lauderdale have fancy protective rubber strips on their docks, unlike the Caribbean where unscrupulous topside re“nishing companies encourage protruding nails and bolts. It just happened to be July 4th and that evening a huge “reworks party was happening on the beach. I asked an elderly couple why they were celebrating the queens birthday in such an extravagant way. We support our troops,Ž came back the reply. God bless America!

NOVEMBER 2011 ALLATSEA.NET 25 These days, to cast off those dock lines and set sail into the sunset has never been easier. With huge advancements in modern technology and navigational aids, you dont need to be able to read the stars to disappear over the horizon. But its not just about how much money you have or whether you have the right boat with all the necessary equipment and latest gadgets and gizmos onboard. Its about the need to embrace a different way of life. Being a cruiser means different things to different people. In a world where consumerism is everything, its all about letting go of the trappings of society and adapting to a new life. By choosing to be a cruiser, you let go of the support systems that life on land provides and you must adapt to one within a more natural environment where selfsuf“ciency or deep pockets are a must. When thinking about life as a live-aboard cruiser, ask your self some tough questions. For instance, can you live without the security of your countrys healthcare service or without your family and network of friends close by? Many cruisers ”y back to their own country to maintain their healthcare status or for treatment despite medical care being cheaper in many parts of the Caribbean. They dont have the same con“dence in the local facilities as they do in the services their own country can provide. Or they feel guilt at leaving elderly parents or the pull of new-born grandchildren tugging at their heartstrings back home. CAN YOU LIVE WITHOUT AN ENDLESS SUPPLY OF WATER AND ELECTRICITY? Even with a water-maker, generator, wind generator and solar panels you still have to be frugal with what you use. Have you considered what it will be like living with your partner or spouse in a con“ned area 24/7 after lives ashore with separate jobs etc., allowed you your own time and space and a degree of independence. DEPENDING ON YOUR BUDGET, ARE YOU PRACTICAL ENOUGH TO BE ABLE TO DEAL WITH THE GENERAL MAINTENANCE OF YOUR BOAT? Even the wealthy amongst us need to be able to adapt to those unforeseen breakdowns! We had friends a little younger than retirement age who bought a boat with the idea that they were going to sit in pretty anchorages reading a book and sipping cocktails all the time. The reality for them was that they bought a boat with too many mechanical systems that they didnt understand and couldnt afford someone else to “x. Their resources were being drained and they werent having fun any more. In the end they sold their boat and moved back ashore.

Some will never have the courage to sail away and will only dream the dream. Others will try yet “nd that living aboard doesnt work for them. But at least they tried to live the dream. For those already here, youve done it, youve tried it and you are still going strong. You are one of the few special people that can let go of those lines and head out into the sunset and make it work. For you and for the others you have left behind … you are a cruiser, living dream.

No big Walmart here ARE YOU PREPARED FOR THE ANXIETY THAT CAN COME WITH LIVING AFLOAT? Life at anchor can be precarious with your world rolling wildly with unusual swells caused by distant storms. The weather can hugely affect your lives with storms and squalls causing sleepless nights, especially if you are in a less then adequate anchorage when all you dream about is a bed on land. CAN YOU STAND THE HOT HUMID DAYS AND THE SWEATY NIGHTS? Do you have the qualities to cope in an emergency, be it a storm that wasnt forecast, a blown-out mainsail in a rising wind, or a reluctant engine when youre becalmed with reefs all around? All these questions make cruising sound disagreeable, which is a long way from the truth. The rewards, for the Arriving at another beautiful island A hectic day at the office Some will never have the courage to sail away and will only dream the dream.


28 ALLATSEA.NET NOVEMBER 2011 Cruising There isnt likely a yacht sailing to or around the Caribbean that doesnt have a cruising guide onboard. New-comers want a heads up on passages, anchorages and shore side facilities and old-salts like to keep up with whats new. While researching and writing such a guide might sound like an idyllic pleasure cruise, in reality it takes hard work and diligence to produce something that can really be trusted. Chris Doyle, whos penned four guides that span from the Leeward Islands to Venezuela, started his guide-writing career in order to “ll a need. I was a charter boat skipper grumbling about all the bareboaters who would arrive in port and want to know where everything was,Ž says Doyle. I said they needed a better cruising guide and my friend George, who owned a boat called Tor Helga in Bequia at the time, said, why dont you write one?Ž What essential information should a good cruising guide offer? Something that keeps oldster and newbie ocean cruisers safe, comfortable and enjoying their cruises,Ž says Bruce Van Sant, whos written four books including the Gentlemens Guide to Passages South Topics include whatever no one else tells them and might bite them in the behind if they dont know it.Ž Frank Virgintino, who has authored “ve guides covering Haiti, Jamaica, Trinidad, the Cayman Islands and Dominican Republic, agrees and adds, In my opinion, the heart of a good guide addresses cruisers concerns and anxieties as to the cultural and political implications of the Caribbean country they will visit in a practical relevant way followed by an accurate review of rocks, reefs and idiosyncrasies that will be encountered.Ž Writing and researching a cruising guide starts with a detailed project plan, says Simon Scott, who with wife Nancy, own Dunedin, Florida-based Cruising Guide Publications. Writing a guide is time consuming and you need to have a strong focus. We were fortunate to have lived and worked in the Virgin Islands for nearly ten years and therefore we knew the area intimately prior to developing the “rst guide.Ž Just a few points in the Scotts comprehensive project plan include developing a table of contents, budget, key agency contacts and route. From there, research entails, for example, CRUISING GUIDESA SAILORS BEST FRIENDBY CAROL M. BAREUTHER Chris DoylePHOTOGRAPH BY JOHN DOUGLASBruce Van Sant working hard Frank Virgintino

Some of the key resources the Scotts use is a GPS plotter aboard their vessel supplemented with a hand held GPS for dinghy and ashore use, a depth sounder, Adobe Illustrator for developing sketch charts and the time, patience and money for aerial photography. Local folks are also an invaluable asset. Doyle found this out when researching Barbuda, which has numerous reefs that are hard to distinguish from grass beds. I asked George Jeffrey, a local “sherman and good friend, to take me around in his “shing boat and show me every reef he knew around the south coast (and he knew all of them). I took waypoints on each one and plotted them to produce a chart. This south coast area was later more properly surveyed by Hasko from Nautical Publications and it was gratifying to see how similar our charts looked.Ž Then, theres the actual writing. One editions desk time reached well over 3000 hours in less than three calendar years,Ž shares Van Sant. The same editions sea miles ran over 6500 nautical miles and that was mostly gunkholing miles, not just passage making.Ž The work doesnt end once the guide is completed. Theres the updating. To keep the guides updated is a 52-week-peryear job that involves sailing, gunkholing, visiting and all forms of research,Ž says Virgintino. Of course, spending this much time and attention on a project is bound to provide a few interesting stories along the way. One of the best happened when Virgintino was researching one Caribbean country, diligently shooting photos and writing notes, when the islands Coast Guard arrived, boarded fully armed, and escorted him and his vessel into port.

They wanted to know what government agency in their country had approved our research. While everyone remained courteous, the situation was not one that was being taken lightly. Subsequently a still higher ranking of“cer was called in, who was a sailor himself and understood what a cruising guide was, after which we were allowed to depart.Ž Finally, the best way to use a cruising guide is in preparation. Pre-cruise, Scott recommends, Use the planning chart to help plan distances and sailing itineraries. On the water, plan the days sailing and read up on the appropriate navigation and anchorage detail. Keep the guide handy while making your approach.

Several clinical studies prove effectiveness and therapeutical ef“ciency of HighTone Power Therapy for diabetical polyneuropathy. The effects of this innovative therapy were evaluated in comparison to the conventional electrotherapy. Under the direction of Prof. Dr. Stephan Martin the German Center of Diabetics (DDZ) Duesseldorf scienti“cally proved the ef“ciency of HighTone Power Therapy on diabetical polyneuropathy. In comparison to the conventional method of the Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS), HighTone Power Therapy is much more effective. For 80% of the polyneuropatic patients treated with HighTone Power Therapy (painful and painless polyneuropathy) considerable relief was documented, only 33% of the patients treated with TENS experienced similar relief. A clinical study under the responsibility of Prof. Dr. Peter P. Nawroth at the University Hospital in Heidelberg (Germany) investigated the effect of HighTone Power Therapy on patients with painful diabetical polyneuropathy: Also in this case considerable relief was documented for 75% of the patients. At the University Hospital of Wrzburg (Germany) a clinical study of Prof. Dr. Dr. August Heidland showed an improvement for 73% of the patients. An observational study by the West German Center of Diabetics and Health at Duesseldorf (WDGZ) extended the data base of the studies: 414 patients suffering from diabetes received a therapy unit for a 6 week treatment at home.

Most of these forms are standardized for use with any celestial body, and will contain information not applicable to a sun sight. They will confuse you. Make your own forms instead (or use the one which I devised, available for free download from allatsea. net). The form is in three parts, one for each stage of the sight reduction. CORRECTING THE SEXTANT Correct the sextant reading for index error dip (height of eye) and observed altitude Read your sextants instructions on how to correct index error … a properly maintained sextant should have zero error. If it does, it will reveal itself when the sextant is set on 0 0 and pointed towards the horizon; the re”ected horizon will appear slightly above or below the actual horizon. Adjust the micrometer drum until both horizons appear as one … the amount of adjustment is your index error: minus (-) if it is on the arc and plus (+) if it is off the arc Height of eye is simply how far off the water you were when you took the sight. Inside the front cover of the Almanac you will “nd a table giving minutes of correction corresponding to various dip measurements, in feet and meters. Refer to this, but note that on most cruising sailboats, the dip (your height of eye) will be about six feet, with the corresponding correction about 3. The altitude correction table is found on the same page.

Find the corresponding range of observed altitude, and record the correction on the form. Note the different tables for different times of the year. Some corrections may be negative, so always put a plus or minus sign before each number to avoid confusion. Total the three corrections, and record the resulting Ho … the observed sextant angle … on the highlighted line. Youll need this number later. THE SUNS GP: YOUR WATCH & THE ALMANAC Perusing the Nautical Almanac, youll “nd all kinds of useful information, from the rise and set of the sun and the moon, to information on the 57 most useful navigational stars as well as the best times of the year to view the different planets. All of this information is useful to the navigator. What we need to get started is information on the Geographical Position (GP) of our celestial body … the sun in this case. Find the page corresponding to the date the sight was taken. Each date consists of two full pages of information … stars and planets on the left page, sun and moon on the right. Find the sun column. You will see two columns of information, labeled d (declination) and GHA (Greenwich Hour Angle) at the top, and a column of numbers down the side, corresponding to whole hours of GMT. Locate the hour of GMT when you took the sight, and record the values for d and GHA in their appropriate places on the form. There are two GHA slots on the form … since the date page only includes information for the whole hour of GMT, youll refer to the grey pages (at the back of the Almanac), which give “gures for the minutes and seconds of GMT. Add these “gures to the hourly GHA to arrive at the total GHA (recall that the sun travels a full 15 of longitude each hour … and always to the west … so the minutes and seconds make a huge difference). Declination changes only negligibly from hour to hour, so one “gure here is suf“cient. Next, record your assumed position (AP). This “gure is simply the closest whole degree of latitude from your dead reckoning, plus your DR longitude degrees, but with the same minutes as your total GHA The goal is to end up with a Local Hour Angle (LHA) expressed in whole degrees. Get this “gure by subtracting your AP longitude from the total GHA (by making the minutes of your AP longitude the same as the minutes of GHA, the subtraction will cancel them out, leaving a whole number). Where GHA is the suns position relative to Greenwich (and 000 longitude), LHA is the suns position relative to you (almost, anyway, … you in this case is an assumed position (AP) near to your DR but a spot on the globe with whole degrees of latitude and longitude. The sight reduction tables have been computed to include information on the bearing to the sun (azimuth), as well as what an imaginary sextant would have read based on these whole numbers. The navigator then gets his line of position by comparing this imaginary sextant reading to his own, and plotting the difference). Next month, well describe exactly how to do that, and bring the celestial series to a close. Andy Schell is a professional yacht captain.

The same way 29,000 bathtub toys that escaped their containers during a storm in the North Paci“c in 1992 were washed up almost 2500 miles away on the shores of southwestern Alaska ten months later. The short answer is they were transported by currents, then held by giant eddies called gyres, and “nally released into other currents. Ocean currents ”ow in complex patterns affected by wind, water density, salinity, solar heating near the equator; topography of the ocean ”oor and the rotation of the earth. These currents are relatively constant and ”ow in one direction only, in contrast to the tidal currents closer to shore. Surface currents are generally wind-driven and deep ocean currents are driven by the other factors. Wind causes large surface currents that ”ow year round. At the equator the direct rays of the sun cause intense heating. As the hot air rises, it leaves areas of low pressure in its place. Warm air from the equator begins to cool and sink about 30 degrees north and south of the equator.

The rotation of the earth also affects the currents through the Coriolis force. This force causes water to move to the right in the Northern Hemisphere and to the left in the Southern Hemisphere. It exists because ocean water at the equator is moving at the same speed as the Earth. As you move north, there is less friction from the earth beneath it. A wind blowing for ten hours across the ocean will cause the surface waters to ”ow at about 2% of the wind speed (University of Southern California, earth sciences). The second effect of the sun is to alter the density of the ocean surface water by changing its temperature and its salinity. If water is cooled or becomes saltier through evaporation, it becomes denser. This can result in the water column becoming unstable, setting up density-dependent currents, also known as the thermohaline (thermo … temperature, haline … salinity) circulation. Ocean currents, ”owing under the surface of the ocean, are hidden from immediate detection. These submarine rivers are often called global conveyor belts. For example, deep water forms in the North Atlantic, sinks, moves south and circulates around Antarctica and then moves northward to the Indian, Paci“c, and Atlantic basins. It can take a thousand years for water from the North Atlantic to “nd its way into the North Paci“c. Currents help transfer oxygen from the atmosphere into the deep ocean. The sinking water is very cold and contains high concentrations of dissolved oxygen acquired at the surface (cold water can hold more oxygen than warm water). During their ”ow, they mix with older water that has been away from the surface for a longer time, thus ensuring that the bottom waters of the ocean are supplied with oxygen. Currents also transport nutrients and trash. The American National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) have developed a visual tool to see and predict currents. The program is called OSCURS (Ocean Surface Current Simulator) and can be found at: http:// oceanmotion.org/html/resources/oscar.htm. Now that we have had a brief overview of ocean currents we can understand the development of large ocean eddies called gyres. A gyre is a large system of rotating ocean currents formed by currents generated by surface winds, the movement of the earth and land masses. The major gyres of the earths oceans are named for their locations: North Atlantic, South Atlantic, North Paci“c, South Paci“c and Indian Ocean gyres. The map shows a simplistic drawing of the gyres. There are several smaller gyres; the large gyres contain sub-gyres. For example, the Atlantic and the Paci“c Ocean have four gyres each. The gyres rotate in either a clockwise or counter-clockwise direction depending on the hemisphere. The gyres are huge … the size of continents … and it can take years for a piece of ”otsam to exit the gyre. For example, the size of the North Atlantic gyre is 1,200 x 3,000 nautical miles, with an 8,000 nautical mile circumference. The orbital period is 3.3 years, but only half of the stuff in the giant gyre will escape in each full revolution; thus there is a one percent chance that a given object would remain adrift after seven orbits … 23 years. These “gures are taken from the book Flotsametrics and the Floating World (Curt Ebbsemeyer and Eric Scigliano, 2009. HarperCollins Press). Lets get back to the tub toys and their story.

By 2005 some of the toys washed up on beaches in eastern North America between Maine and Massachusetts. In 2007 the “rst tub toys were found on beaches in England. It is not just rubber ducks that get caught in gyres. Trash enters coastal currents and is fed into the gyres creating huge ”oating islands of garbage. The North Paci“c gyre is often called the garbage patch. By all accounts this gyre is a mass of plastic and other debris that resists decomposition.

42 ALLATSEA.NET NOVEMBER 2011 Tips & Tricks TOP COAT SERIES: PART 5 TOP OF THE LINEBY STEVE ROSENBERG PHOTOGRAPHY COURTESY OF AWLGRIPWant to know the secret to getting the ultimate topcoat “nish? When the eventual two-time Americas Cup winner Courageous launched in June 1974, admirers agreed that the all-aluminum, 12-metre boat was an elegant sailing vessel. One thing they surely noticed was the stunning sea-foam green topside paintjob that instantly turned heads and distinguished it from the competition. With all the attention that Courageous garnered both as a winner of sailings most prestigious regatta and as the plaything of media mogul Ted Turner, the paint manufacturer Awlgrip, and its innovative approach to high-grade marine surface coatings got to go along for the ride. That yacht got talked about so much during that time that it really brought a lot of attention to our products,Ž said Elenor Ekman, Awlgrip Marketing Manager. The Awlgrip polyester “nishes are designed, of course, to hold up well in a marine environment, but what really made us stand out and built our reputation is our gloss “nish. We call that our distinction of image, and the high-gloss, mirror “nish looks fantastic even after a year out to sea in full exposure.Ž As an industry-leading professional-grade topcoat paint line, Awlgrip products are designed using only the highest quality resins and pigments to prevent premature fading and chalking even in the harshest conditions. But, Ekman points out, there are many success factors involved in getting the ultimate topcoat “nish, such as whos applying the “nish, where its being done, and the system being used. We can help those applicators that dont have the luxury of a dedicated paint shed to help make the “nish as good as possible with things like anti-cratering additives and drying accelerators,Ž Eckman said. We always try to make it as easy as possible for all of our customers to get involved in the process, and we emphasize training to optimize their skills and understand all the different variables. Our customer training facility is getting rave reviews, and many people are learning new tricks of the trade and how to stay ahead of the game with new solutions.Ž With an extensive range of products, Awlgrip strives to provide the perfect combination of primer, paint addis A A Lazzara LSX78 coated in Awlcraft SE


NOVEMBER 2011 ALLATSEA.NET 43tives and coatings plus support options for any conditions, whether the work is being done in the Caribbean, the Mediterranean or California, Ekman said. We examine the project carefully and make mast-to-keel recommendations, for instance, with our variety of non-skid deck paint, ”attening agents, accelerators and maintenance products,Ž said Ekman. We want everyone to understand the process and how the products work together, so theres continuity and they get the quality result they expect.Ž Color matching is big business for Awlgrip, which means customers can get exactly the color they desire. Instead of distributors carrying hundreds of different premixed colors a client can bring in a color chip or other representation and the paint can be freshly mixed to that exact speci“cation. According to Ekman, the most popular topcoat colors shade toward the dark blues and whites, but special effects paints such as metallic ”ake and designer pearlescent options are becoming more popular in certain applications. As these types of effects became more prevalent in the automotive market, more customers started asking about creating a similar effect on their yachts. We took our time to explore all the different technologies involved with the special effects paints,Ž said Ekman. Our Awlcraft SE is one that were very excited about, and its been available for about 18-months. Remember that spraying a car is not like spraying the surface of an 80-foot boat. The trick is to get the metallic ”ake all laying in the same direction. That de“nitely requires some expertise to make it look right with the “nish as consistent as possible.Ž One of the “rst high-pro“le projects to utilize Awlcraft SE was the ”ybridge of Cakewalk, the biggest new build in North America at the time. Its also used on large re“t projects with successful results. Ekman says more boatyards are starting to offer the product because of consumer demand, particularly on large sport“shers and superyacht superstructures, because it creates a unique, premium “nish. Much like interior decorating trends in the housing market, there seems to be an enthusiasm to experiment these days. Some of the research and development going on at Awlgrip is more behind-the-scenes, however. For some uses, the acrylic polyurethane Awlcraft 2000, with its faster drying time makes for an easier application, particularly in areas where dust is likely to settle quickly. While the “nished product is not quite as hard as the typical Awlgrip “nish, it is much easier to repair. And for areas with either voluntary or regulated emissions requirements, the new Awlgrip HS helps meet or exceed local standards, but require special training because of the differences in paint coverage and “nish.

The increase has delighted the organizers who say they worked hard to increase the number of multihulls by making more space available in Las Palmas. This year World Cruising Club increased the number of rallies they organize by taking over the Caribbean 1500. Boats from this rally, along with 13 boats from ARC 2011 and four previous ARC boats, are going on to join the World ARC circumnavigation rally that starts in Saint Lucia in January 2012. The ARC has always been about sailing and camaraderie. Again, many families will cross the Atlantic this year and their crews will include everyone from toddlers to seniors. Although many old-hands will be joining the ”eet, the ARC is there to help and encourage those making an ocean crossing for the “rst time. This is something that the ARC is rightly proud of and dates back to the original concept as laid down by founder Jimmy Cornell. Stringent rules on safety help instill con“dence in those making the voyage for the “rst time. Safety is our chief concern,Ž notes Bishop. And our equipment requirements, at-sea weather forecasts, radio net and pre-departure skippers brie“ngs are a deciding factor in joining the ARC for many people.Ž Asked to sum-up this years rally, Bishop had this to offer those taking part: You are going to undertake something amazing, crossing an ocean using the power of the wind, dependent on your own skills and abilities. Although youll be following in the wakes of thousands of sailors both ancient and modern, your adventure will be unique, and youll be able to count yourself a member of a special group of people.Ž The 26th ARC leaves Las Palmas de Gran Canaria on November 20th.

BROWN THE ATLANTIC RALLY FOR CRUISERS 2011Its the granddaddy of all offshore rallies and judging by the ”eet assembling in Las Palmas this November, it is growing stronger by the year. We are, of course, talking about the ARC … The Atlantic Rally for Cruisers. Now in its 26th year, the ARC was started by journalist Jimmy Cornell who, in the mid 1980s, was sent by a popular sailing magazine to cover the annual yacht migration from the Canary Islands to the Caribbean, a migration much smaller than it is today. What Cornell found inspired him and in 1986 the Atlantic Rally for Cruisers was born. Why do so many sailors want to join this popular rally? Without doubt some ARC participants would have crossed the Atlantic without the rally, while others have done so because of the rally,Ž says Andrew Bishop, the man who now heads the World Cruising Club, the owners of the ARC. The in”uence of the rally extends beyond the immediate start and “nish though, and where we really help is in preparing people to go offshore cruising.Ž Before taking part in the ARC, says Bishop, sailors often prepare for years, even going as far as contacting the World Cruising Club before they have bought a boat. Theyll come along to our seminars and forums to learn about the practicalities of life aboard and how to select gear and train crew. By the time they cross the line in Las Palmas theyre fully prepared; practically and mentally.Ž By March this year, the ARC was already over subscribed and a waiting list was set up. And with such high numbers, organizers expect 235 boats to start from Las Palmas. There can be no doubt that when the ARC arrives in town it pumps a large amount of dollars into the local economy. Weve done a lot of work in measuring the economic impact of the ARC in Gran Canaria, and in 2010 the boat crews spent over $2m in Las Palmas, not including ”ights and accommodation ashore,Ž says Bishop. He adds, We would expect an equivalent level of spending in Saint Lucia, although more is likely to be spent on accommodation and tourism-related activities, and less on preparing the boat.Ž A welcome surprise is the number of multihulls taking part, with 30 expected on the start line. This breaks another ARC record and makes it the biggest-ever transocean event

BAREUTHER If youve sailed offshore to the Caribbean at least once, then youre invited to join a brand new cruising rally. The “rst annual Salty Dog Rally is being organized by Bill and Linda Knowles, who cruise from New England to the Caribbean each year aboard their Jeanneau 54, Sapphire with 10-year-old Jack Russell terrier, Brie. Weve done the Caribbean 1500 Cruising Rally a number of times, but this years departure date of November 7th is one reason why we decided to start our own rally,Ž explains Bill Knowles. In my opinion, this is too late. A three or four day delay could set departure back to November 11th or 12th. Add the seven to ten-day trip and you are into Thanksgiving week. Many people have previous commitments for this week and its possible to lose crew. We plan to leave earlier, weather permitting, on November 1st instead.Ž Bill and Linda Knowles. Brie … a true Salty Dog.


NOVEMBER 2011 ALLATSEA.NET 51Secondly, Knowles adds, Weve done the trip for so many years with the 1500 that we thought it would be fun to do on our own with other experienced sailors.Ž The fact that the Salty Dog Rally is only open to experienced sailors lent to its name. Our dog Brie has at least 20,000 ocean miles under her belt, so you could say shes an experienced sailor or real salty dog,Ž says Knowles. We really liked the name and thought it perfect for the rally.Ž The term salty dog does indeed mean an experienced sailor, according to the Dictionary of Navy Slang. The idea for the rally took root this summer. It grew into reality when Blue Water Sailing signed on as sponsor to provide free weather routing services and organizations like the Seven Seas Cruising Association helped to spread the word. The goal is to have a good time,Ž says Knowles. Im not charging anything because I dont want to be “nancially responsible. Its an on your own in a group type of rally.Ž Nine boats had signed up for the rally by mid-September. These included two Jeanneau 54s, a Hylas 54, Farr 50, Beneteau 49 and couple of monohulls in the 40 to 44foot range. There are no multihulls. The cruisers hail from California, New England and Baltimore. One other boat has a canine crew, while yet another boasts kids on board. Knowles expects 10 to 15 boats to have signed-up by rally start. As of mid-September, Knowles was still deliberating between a Hampton start from the Bluewater Yachting Center or Norfolk start from Bay Point Marina. Both facilities are cruiser-friendly facilities, offering dockage discounts to ralliers, with restaurants, provisioning and other shopping nearby. The destination will be the British Virgin Islands of Tortola, either Sopers Hole or Nanny Cay Marina. Well be offering an offshore rally net on single-sideband at 7am and 7pm daily, potluck socials and a Dutch-treat closing dinner at either the Jolly Roger in Sopers Hole or Peg Legs at Nanny Cay.Ž Knowles says the group may get together again in the spring and head back north. We hope the Salty Dog Rally will become a tradition that will continue year after year,Ž says Knowles.

60 ALLATSEA.NET NOVEMBER 2011 St. Maarten / St. Martin SINT MAARTEN HEINEKEN REGATTA ESPN COVERAGE TO BROADEN APPEALBY ROBERT LUCKOCK Any time a major sports television network takes interest in an island produced event it should be cause for celebration. In this case its the world renowned Sint Maarten Heineken Regatta that piqued ESPN Caribbeans interest and for the “rst time in the regattas history the 2011 event was “lmed and aired internationally to positive reviews. ESPNs interpretation of the 31st regatta was praised for its well-rounded coverage and accessibility to the casual viewer that opens up potential to attract a wider range of audiences. The regatta organisation already has a well oiled publicity machine but ESPNs participation has the potential to broaden the events appeal to all corners of the globe. Regatta Director Heather Tackling disclosed in August the regatta and ESPN was close to signing a “ve year deal. Having ESPN show interest and produce a programme about the Sint Maarten Heineken Regatta not only sheds light on the event but also on the island and the region,Ž she said. We are excited ESPN sees the value in Caribbean racing and that it is willing to make a commitment of “ve years to the event. It will allow the island and the regatta to use this exposure to advance the regatta. We are working very closely with the staff to ensure the programme brings across the experience of Caribbean racing and we look forward to a great long term partnership.Ž Vice-President and General Manager of ESPN Caribbean Bernard Stewart was special guest of the Sint Maarten Yacht Club at a special screening of ESPNs video documentary in June. Among audience members were Minister of Tourism Franklin Meyers, Managing Director of Heineken John Leone, Managing Director of St. Maarten Cable TV Beulah PHOTOGRAPH BY ROBERT LUCKOCK Vice-President and General Manager of ESPN Caribbean, Bernard Stewart.

Stewart, no stranger to St. Maarten, was formerly with ESPN in Asia for ten years. He became interested in getting ESPN involved in the island following discussions with St. Maarten Cable TV last year. When I was offered the Caribbean assignment by ESPN I found out few Fortune 500 companies have a really strong strategic view of what to do with Caribbean businesses,Ž he explained. It was an opportunity for me to step in and use the toolbox I developed over time to “nd out if theres real business here and to let people know who we are.Ž Asked what attracted ESPN to the island, he said: You have an event going on for 31 years with 200 entries from around the world each year, thousands of visitors, a major sponsor is involved, and the whole community is behind it. Forget the genre, how could you not be involved? I think the regatta was one of those quiet stories that grew and grew. Sport has a way of giving you compelling stories.Ž Stewart said in addition to the English language version of the video, ESPN is making a Spanish language version of the 31st regatta for Latin America in high de“nition that will target around 28 million viewers. Who knows how far this can go,Ž he added. With the right kind of participation and right story telling we can place the coverage on a variety of our networks around the world. The advantage of a partnership with Minister Meyers and the tourism board is that they have the same goals as us. We want to speak to the same people. They want to tell people to come to St. Maarten. If we all work together on this we can check off the boxes that will be bene“cial for everyone.Ž The 31st regatta was seen by 2.2million viewers on ESPN in Australia and the Paci“c Rim.

NOVEMBER 2011 ALLATSEA.NET 65 AntiguaSPORT FISHING PROFILE ANTIGUAS CAPTAIN MICHAEL MICKEY HALLBY CAROL M. BAREUTHER Fishing has always been a family affair for Captain Michael Mickey Hall, one of Antiguas most experienced and winning sports “shermen. I started “shing at age seven with my late father, the Honorable Robert Hall, and with my brothers and sometimes my mother,Ž says Hall. My “rst efforts actually involved skin diving both as a reef diver and open water diver taking part in the Pan Am Airways tournaments. We targeted reef species and pelagic and normally would go from the boat.Ž Halls sports “shing education took a leap forward during his teenage years under the tutelage of the late Ralph Camacho, Antiguas “rst sports “sherman. We all attended “shing tournaments from an early age during the late 60s and early 70s,Ž Hall explains. My brother Vernon then got his own boat and we “shed tournaments with our wives whose names are all recorded in the Antigua & Barbuda Sport Fishing Clubs records.Ž Today, Hall says, his favorite type of “shing is live baiting for pelagics on the drop-off using strong spinning gear. He also enjoys deep-sea trolling for wahoo, tuna and dolphin. Wahoo is his favorite specie to catch, followed by black “n tuna as a close second. His preferred equipment is a rod in the 20lb to 30lb class and a Shimano Baitrunner 6500 series reel loaded with 20lb Suf“x yellow mono“lament line. My best “sh story happened when I brought an 80lb yellow“n tuna to gaff only to discover that the “sh had actually survived being pierced through and through by a large bill“sh and that the wound had actually begun to heal over,Ž Hall tells. I sent a picture of it to the magazine Florida Sportsman and it was published.Ž Hall caught a sizeable wahoo during another good day of “shing. Ironically, he hooked up the “sh while making a close pass to another “shing vessel whose anglers line went off at the same time. We came to “nd we were both hooked up to the same “sh,Ž he says. The big question was who hooked it “rst. Probably one of the lines went down the other and the hook slid along and ended up in the “shs mouth.Ž Hall “shes in all the Antigua & Barbuda Sport Fishing Clubs tournaments. Ive done well in the local ones, having won the Sporting Divisions (all other species except marlin) on a number of occasions with all my family as crew,Ž says Hall. In fact, my best “shing My best “shing day was winning a tournament in 1998 with the largest of a few different species, also a few second prizes along with the largest “sh in the Ladies and Juniors divisions.Ž

Hall “shes from his 32ft Carrera center console, Scally Wag I had the boat custom made to position the console a bit further forward to give a lot more room in the “ghting/landing aft area,Ž Hall explains. It has six rod holders on the gunwales. It also has the speed … thanks to the two Suzuki 250 four strokes … to get to the grounds and return in good time with a great ride.Ž Antiguas best “shing grounds are on the northwest, east and west of the island. However, Hall says it takes years to truly learn the different bottom structures where a winning “sh can be found.Ž Visiting anglers, he advises, should pay close attention to their GPS/“sh “nders when near these structures. He suggests zooming in to get a much closer grasp of whats on the bottom and then work the area at different compass headings to “nd the bite and then remember it for the duration of the days outing. Even though this recommendation sounds like a lot of work, its the aspect of what Hall calls total relaxation that attracts him to sports “shing.

68 ALLATSEA.NET NOVEMBER 2011 Grenada LETS GO HASHING IN GRENADA CRUISER AND LOCALS SHARE MUD AND MOUNTAINSSTORY AND PHOTOS BY LIESBET COLLAERT Many cruisers spend hurricane season in Grenadas capital St. Georges or in the bays along the south coast. So many boats make for a very active cruising community and a busy Cruisers Net on VHF channel 68, six mornings a week. We can all join yoga sessions, play dominoes, watch sports on big screen TVs in different bars, go on organized island tours, join shopping trips, gossip over cocktails and beers during various happy hours, or pick from a whole array of other, cruiser-friendly happenings. For people wanting to do or try something entirely different, theres a activity that is growing in popularity, not only with cruisers, but also with the local population. This event is called a hash and it takes place every Saturday during the summer and often twice-aweek during the winter season. Everyone is welcome. A hash is an aggressive walk or run that takes you through forests and pretty countryside, up and over hills, past rivers and through pastures. Greeting local land-owners and mooing cows, youll enjoy expansive views and a personal workout, while following a marked trail and … possibly … sliding in the mud. People of all ages, nationalities, cultures, religions, backgrounds and strength participate in the hash and no competition is involved. Everybody walks or runs at his or her own pace, achieving their goal of reaching the “nish or turning back to the starting point where Caribbean beer and affordable Grenadian food is available. The Hash House Harriers is a worldwide organization with branches (known as kennels) all over the world. Currently, 1976 hash groups, located in 1292 cities and 185 countries, are registered, amongst which are many from the Caribbean. The incredibly popular 700th hash drew over 600 walkers and runners

NOVEMBER 2011 ALLATSEA.NET 71The act of hashing was invented in 1938 in Kuala Lumpur, where three British expats wanted to enjoy some physical activity without changing their beer drinking routines. So, they ran a trail, set with ”our, that ended at a drinking establishment where the calories lost during the exercise came back in the form of beer, and camaraderie ensued. Hashing has its own rules and traditions. Hashers, dubbed drinkers with a running problem, receive hash names and use terms like, are you? when trying to determine whether they are on the right trail, on on when indicating they are on the right trail, and on in when reaching the end of the trail. A “rst time hasher is a virgin and at the end of your trial hash, you receive a Certi“cate of Loss of Virginity. Other traditions worth mentioning … and involving beer … are the breaking in of new shoes and the christening of virgins. In Grenada, every hash takes place in a different location and HHH signs point you to the start of the event. Buses for cruisers are organized and leave from different anchorages to reach that Saturdays destination safely and timely. When you decide to join a hash in Grenada, be ready to Grenada sweat, have fun, try local delicacies … in liquid or solid form … and meet new friends. After a short introduction by the Hash Master, you are set loose to follow a shredded paper trail (beware of the false trails) through Grenadas stunning interior to arrive at the point you started with new memories and interesting stories to tell. Proof of the islands Hash House Harriers success was its 700th edition at the beginning of September. More than 600 hashers showed up, amongst them were a record number of 100 cruisers, and Grenadas Prime Minister, Tillman Thomas, who thoroughly enjoyed the event. If you would like some exercise away from your boat, off the beaten track while exploring parts of Grenada you would otherwise miss, then a hash is exactly what you are looking for.

NOVEMBER 2011 ALLATSEA.NET 73 If the ABC islands were drinks, Bonaire would be a freshly-made, starkly green Mojito. Curaao would be a sophisticated blue-coloured cocktail. And Aruba would be a frozen strawberry colada, pink with three maraschino cherries on top. With its lush west coast pearled by hotels, and the bonedry east side beaches ragged and torn by the seas into peculiar shapes of bridges and pools, Aruba is often ignored by cruisers who perhaps see only a tourism-spoiled plastic charter paradise. But think twice before you decide to sail by Aruba, because you are sure to regret it. If you are in the area, you are probably on your way westward towards Colombia and Panama, or setting off northbound. Either way, you are looking at spending several days at sea. You may choose to turn east from Curaao or Bonaire, and head for Grenada, beating against the wind, seas and current„a harsh trip. Whatever your course, you deserve a stop at Aruba for some rest and pampering. The island, off the South American coast, pulsates with high level services and entertainment shaped by years in the competitive business of caring for charter tourists. As you arrive at the Renaissance Marina in Oranjestad, you will receive a pleasant surprise. For exactly the same fee as you might pay for an ordinary marina berth, say, in St Maarten or Grenada, you get free access to fabulous swimming pools, a brand-new air-conditioned gym, a tennis court, power-boat rides to a small island with private beaches, not to mention the WiFi and showers. The garbage disposal is also included in the price. Bright green iguanas the size of a small dog greet you as you walk along the pontoon, together with the splashing colours of tropical “sh in the harbour.

Visitors from Holland will be delighted to see familiar snacks, the sushi is grand, around the corner is a special menu with expertly grilled Chateaubriand, and just about any place you visit will treat you with nice cuisine, two-for-one drinks, and ”awless service. Apart from the sudden luxury that you “ght hard not to get too used to, Aruba is also good for practical things. There is plenty of sightseeing and activities … abandoned gold mines, historical places, caves with natural light, wreck diving and more, in fact enough to keep you busy for every day you spend on the island. At the chandlery near the Renaissance marina, you will “nd a surprisingly wide array of gear and possibly some of those hard to “nd extras you have been looking for. My stroll through the chandlery turned up everything from lifeslings to absolutely enormous game “shing gear, decent dry-bags and boat repair kits. The shelves of the book exchange go all the way up to the ceiling of the store. The local supermarket, although a little weak on fresh meat, offers a great variety of foods, including, surprisingly, ready-to-eat Indian Paneer curries that have an amazing shelf-life and cook in just 90 seconds, perfect for a long ocean crossing.

96 ALLATSEA.NET NOVEMBER 2011 Caribbean Dining & Provisioning THE DISH BY CAPN JAN ROBINSONThe original inhabitants of the Caribbean were the Arawak/Taino Indians. Their diet centered around meat or “sh, with the latter being eaten either raw or only partially cooked. The coastal natives relied heavily on “sh where the natives inland relied more on agriculture for their diet. The Caribbean Islands bring together a unique collection of foods blended with herbs and spices. These recipes have evolved through the years and most of them are very simple. Watch some of the recipes being prepared on TV. http:// www.wcnc.com/charlotte-today/Captain-Jan-Robinsonsterri“c-tuna-129958278.html COCONUT CHIPS Preparation time: 15 minutes. Cook time: 25 minutes. Serves: 4 1 whole coconut 1 oz unsalted butter Freshly ground sea salt Preheat oven to 375F. Using a corkscrew, bore holes in the eyes of the coconut and drain the liquid into a bowl. Place coconut in a small baking tray and bake about 12 minutes or until the coconut shell cracks. Remove coconut meat from the shell and peel off the outside brown skin, Using a vegetable slicer or peeler, shave coconut into thin slices. Butter a baking sheet and arrange the slices on it. Bake in oven until they are light brown, about 10 minutes. Remove from oven and sprinkle with salt. Note: Chips can be served warm or at room temperature. TERRIFIC TUNA Preparation time: 5 minutes. Marinating time: 45 minutes Cook time: 4 minutes. Serves: 6 6 (6 oz) sushi-grade ahi tuna steaks 1/4 cup fresh grated ginger 1/3 cup minced jalapeos Place tuna steaks in shallow baking dish (not metal). Mix all other ingredients together, pour over steaks and marinate for at least 45 minutes in refrigerator, turning steaks 2 or 3 times. Remove tuna from dish and BBQ on hot grill 2 minutes each side, or heat (on high heat) a little canola or olive oil in a heavy bottom, preferably a cast iron skillet, and cook 2 minutes each side. Do not overcook. Serving suggestions: MANGO SALSA, WILD NUTTED RICE and SAUTEED ASPARAGUS. The reason I picked this recipe...I love it because it is simple and tasty! Cook a couple of extra steaks so you can make a wonderful tuna salad another day. You will never want to eat canned tuna again! MANGO SALSA Preparation time: 15 minutes. Chilling time: 30 minutes or overnight. Serves: 6 1 ripe mango (about 1-1/2 cups), seed removed and diced 1/2 cup red onion, “nely chopped (or green onions) 2 limes, juiced 2 Tbsp chopped fresh mint or cilantro 1 Jalapeo chili, minced, optional Salt and pepper to taste In a bowl gently mix together diced mango, onion, lime juice, mint or cilantro, salt and pepper. Chill. Better if made ahead for ”avors to mingle. LAMB CUTLETS WITH MINT SAUCE Preparation time: 15 minutes. Marinating time: 2 hours Cook time: 10 minutes. Serves: 4 8 … 12 lamb cutlets 3 Tbsp olive oil 1 Tbsp fresh rosemary 3 cloves garlic, minced Salt and pepper to taste In a bowl combine the oil, rosemary, garlic, salt and pepper. Place cutlets in a shallow baking dish and pour over the oil mixture and let marinate for a couple of hours in a cool place. Heat a large skillet or use a broiler. The cutlets should cook for about two minutes on each side. Mint Sauce: Put mint in a jug. Cover with boiling water, add sugar, vinegar and salt taste. Serve sauce (warm or cold) over cutlets. WILD NUTTED RICE Preparation time: 5 minutes. Cook time: 45 minutes. Serves: 6 1 cup uncooked wild rice, washed 2/3 cup orange juice 2/3 cup chicken broth 1-1/2 cups water Place wild rice in a saucepan with orange juice, chicken broth, water and salt; bring to a boil. Reduce heat. Simmer covered for about 45 minutes or until tender but not mushy. Uncover. Fluff with a fork. Add pecan pieces and simmer for an additional couple of minutes, then drain any excess liquid. Add orange zest and olive oil. Serve at room temperature. Note: This rice dish goes well with “sh, chicken or meat. Capt. Jan Robinson holds certi“cates from the Culinary Institute of America, The Ritz Cooking School, and the Cordon Bleu.
