8 ALLATSEA.NET MARCH 2012 Editors Log January saw the arrival in St. Maarten of 16-year-old Laura Dekker and her 38ft ketch Guppy After 366 days, Dekker crossed her outbound track in Simpson Bay to become the youngest person to sail around the world alone (see page 65). Her voyage was controversial and her own government tried to stop it. Fortunately, she had the guts to persevere and there were enough people around to support her and help make it happen. Of course there were risks. If youre an offshore sailor then you need no reminder from me. The ocean is a dangerous place. It is also mystical, a place where some people feel more at home than they do on land. Would I support a youngster who came forward with a wild scheme to follow in Dekkers wake? The answer is no. The reason that Dekker succeeded is because hers was no wild scheme. It was a carefully planned and executed voyage, carried out by a competent sailor in a sturdy, “t-for-purpose, ocean-going boat. Not only did Dekker make a superb circumnavigation, she put the nanny state to shame. Parents who complain about their children should take note. In this edition we conclude our series on rigging with a look at what to do should a shroud fail and you are dismasted at sea (see page 36). Having been in this position, I was glad to see Andy Schell tackle the subject in his article. When we lost our rig, during a storm in the Bay of Biscay, we were in danger of the remains of the mast piercing the hull and had to cut it away. This was not easy. The jaws of the bolt-cutters we carried for just such an emergency literally crumbled as they bit into the stainless steel wire. Eventually, I had to crawl around the deck and pull out all the rigging pins with pliers before I could let go of the mast. To reach port, we used a spinnaker pole as a jury-rig, and a small jib, set upside down and with a knot tied in it, to sail to shore, “ve days to the east. I had made the spinnaker poles and adapted the ends so they could double as a jury-rig should the need arise. Forethought got us out of trouble, but only just. The bolt-cutters were brand new, but I had failed to test them. Its always the little things that get you! I have seen some strange things at sea. I once came across a freighter lying stationery at night, in mid ocean, without lights and refusing to answer the radio. Another time, I came Gary E. Brown, Editor WHEN CROSSING OCEANS, ALWAYS CARRY A PINupon a man in an in”atable dinghy 25 miles off the coast of Florida. Every time we sailed towards him, he started a big outboard and motored off at high speed. After an hour trying, we made a note in the log and left him to it. Our strangest encounter happened in the Mediterranean. We were “ve miles off shore when we spotted someone frantically waving their arm about half-a-mile downwind of us. Our boat was small and slow and only had an outboard motor but we set off to the rescue. The swimmer was drifting downwind at almost the same speed as us, so it took a long time to close the distance. An hour later, and miles downwind of our destination, we were close enough to see that it wasnt a person we were chasing but a strange bird. We had spent so long on the chase, and now had no chance of making port before nightfall, that we decided to keep going. Thirty minutes later and we had the bird along side. I now hate childrens in”atable beach toys and when the chance arises, stab them with a pin.

16 ALLATSEA.NET MARCH 2012 Caribbean News CARIBBEAN NEWS A BRIEF LOOK INTO THE HAPPENINGS OF OUR WORLD Ferron resigns as head of St. Maarten Heineken RegattaSir Robbie Ferron has resigned from the Board of the St. Maarten Regatta Foundation and as Chairman of the Heineken Regatta Steering Committee. Ferron, who is credited with starting the regatta, now in its 32nd year, announced his decision just six weeks before the start of the March event. Problems between Ferron and the Board of the St. Maarten Yacht Club over future policy came to a head at an extraordinary general meeting held at the yacht club in January. A joint statement issued by the Heineken Regatta and Ferron said that the position of Steering Committee Chairman and all functions related to that position will be taken over by Mr. John Gifford, previous co-chair to the event.Ž The statement cited Ferrons resignation as due to his views on the future organization of the event differing from those of the St. Maarten Heineken Regatta Foundation board of directors, the organizing entity.Ž www.heinekenregatta.comAward for Rincon Sailing, Puerto RicoRincon Sailing is the 2011 award winner for the US Sailing Community Sailing Outstanding Outreach and Inclusion Award. The award is given annually to a program director or program that has made notable contributions to promote public access to sailing, by “nding and including people in their program who would normally have no access to the sport. Rincon Sailing said they were honored and proud of this acknowledgment. We are motivated to continue the mission: connect people of all ages, skills, and means to the waters of Puerto Rico. Through educational and recreational sailing programs, we hope to stimulate personal growth and an enduring respect and enjoyment of the sea.Ž www.rinconsailing.com HIHO becomes clothing sponsor for Antigua Sailing WeekHIHO, the BVI-based brand of Caribbean clothing, has inked a multi-year deal to be the exclusive clothing supplier to Antigua Sailing Week. HIHO will design a range of casual and technical clothing for the event. The collection will feature the brands well-known quality materials and details.

20 ALLATSEA.NET MARCH 2012 Cruising THE ABACOSA CALM AND SHALLOW SEABY MARK STEVENSWere “fteen minutes out of Marsh Harbour in the northern Bahamas Sea of Abaco, our chartered Sunsail monohull as happy as a Sunday morning. Thats when my heart skips beat. The waters are the colors that you dream about … aquamarine and neon lime. But these are colors you want to admire from your beach chair, not your cockpit. Sure signs of danger.The birds are as calm as the sea in the harbor at Great Guana CayPHOTO: SHARON MATTHEWS-STEVENS/WWW.SHERRYSPIX.COM

PAGE 24

22 ALLATSEA.NET MARCH 2012I stare at the glittering surface … wind-ruf”ed in eight knots. I check our depth: ten-feet beneath the keel. Nearest landfall is three miles off … Great Guana Cay undulating about the horizon like a Renaissance courtesan. This cant be good. But theres another boat just off our port beam, in no apparent distress. In fact, theyre doing an early morning cocktail … and theyre anchored here in the middle of the Abaco Sea, someone diving off the stern while I watch with growing understanding. Were sailing the shallow sea. A calm and shallow sea. Though no one is quite sure how the Bahamas got their name … some say it means Big Island in native Lucayan … Id just read that it came from the Spanish Bahia Mar … Shallow Sea. Maximum depths around twenty feet, average ten to “fteen. Theyve got the shallow part right. But from a geographic standpoint its more a sound than a sea. Now back to the shallow part. Late in the afternoon of our “rst day we make port at Great Guana Cay and look for an empty mooring ball. I think I spot one but its not a ball, its a Javex bottle … a navigational aid meaning insuf“cient depth, though you wont “nd this one in Chart One. I realize my error too late. The boat shudders. Stops. One night we anchor at Man o War Cay … just off a little stand of mangroves, south of a village where they still build boats, where spindly docks jut into the water. We watch a boat … shipping a full keel … zoom through the narrow passage. CruisingWaypoints are central to Abacos appeal as a cruising ground. Crown jewel among them is Hopetown with its candy-cane lighthousePHOTO: SHARON MATTHEWS-STEVENS/WWW.SHERRYSPIX.COM

PAGE 25

MARCH 2012 ALLATSEA.NET 23 An hour later a towboat kedges them off. Then theres Hopetowns entrance„a gauntlet of lateral buoys. Err one way and you bond with Parrot Cays, miscue to starboard and youre making friends with Eagle Rock. The Abacos are more popular with the couples whove sold everything and said good-bye to land, than weeklong charterers. The cruising grounds are unique and strangely compelling. The Sea of Abaco is comprised of two actual islands, 82 cays and more than 200 rocks. It lies almost due east of Floridas West Palm Beach, a mere hour-and-a-half ”ight from Fort Lauderdale. Cruisers most frequently cross the stream and make their way southwest from Walkers Cay, the most northerly of the Bahamas archipelago. We dont have that luxury, so we charter. Moorings and Sunsail both maintain ”eets on the same docks in Marsh Harbour. Options include the usual choice of crewed and bareboat, monohulls and catamarans. Sometime, on our second or third day, it strikes me, in calm waters and a reasonable breeze, that its basically a really flat version of Drake Passage in the British Virgin Islands. The area is blessed by ideal conditions and waypoints right out of some expensive travel magazine. Waypoints like Great Guana Cay, where a bunch of kids in a ”ock of Optis are zipping around the harbour. Ashore follow a path to a rainbow-painted tractor in the shade of casuarinas trees to Nippers, a rainbowesque beachside bar overlooking ”esh-coloured sand, home to a Sunday afternoon pig roast. Hope Town, with its candy cane lighthouse and snug harbour fronted by homes and shops that look like they were transplanted from New England„except the buildings are more kaleidoscopic than the beach bar on Great Guana. Hope Town, home to Capn Jacks with its white clapboard exterior and bubblegum-coloured trim; home to megayachts, charter boats and barely seaworthy handymans specials. And then theres the anchorage in a secret little bay in the lee of Treasure Cay where you can dinghy ashore to a beach that National Geographic rated one of the worlds top ten. Or drop the anchor for an impromptu swim … right in the middle of the Abaco Sea … like our erstwhile neighbours. Or sail a shallow sea as calm as a Sunday afternoon.

24 ALLATSEA.NET MARCH 2012 We “rst arrived in St. Thomas in April; six months after leaving Maine aboard our 47ft Pedrick designed Cheoy Lee. Wed cruised in the Bahamas, visited Lupern in the Dominican Republic, and Salinas in Puerto Rico„none of which had prepared us for the bustle and frenzy of Charlotte Amalie Harbor during cruise ship season. Walking along the waterfront we were exhorted to abandon our stroll for numerous taxis, and to spend our cruising kitty on gold and silver jewelry at tremendous duty free savings. At one point I suggested we start our own business in St. Thomas selling t-shirts that said: No, Im not going to buy jewelry or ride in your taxi ƒ Im a cruising sailor.Ž Sailors are cruisers, and cruisers arent found on cruise ships. Generally, were better dressed (or at least more covered up) than folks who stroll down the gangplank in bikini tops and shorts. After all, cruisers have a much more up close and personal relationship with customs and immigration of“cers, and weve found that wearing modest shorts and tops makes a better impression on the uniformed of“cials. While we can sit in a waterfront caf and pick the real cruisers from the cruise ship tourist, it seems that most who work in the duty-free shops cant tell us apart. In April, as EW and I walked along the Charlotte Amalie waterfront, a tanned, silver-haired gentleman caught my eye, offered a blindingly white smile and said with a New York accent, Nice shoes. I saw ones like them on the Internet and CRUISERS! said to myself, We have some jewelry that would look great with those shoes!Ž I looked at him in amazement, and then down at my old boating sandals. He hadnt seen anything like these on the Internet. The soles of my sandals had separated and EW had glued them together with 5200. I laughed and said, Good pitch, but no thanksŽ, and we moved on. We sailed down the Eastern Caribbean, spent hurricane season in Grenada, and sailed back to St. Thomas for Thanksgiving. The next week, EW and I walked from the dinghy dock at Yacht Haven to Frenchtown one morning, returning as the shops were opening. I recognized the dapper, tanned gentleman who caught my eye and moved toward us, and I surprised EW by putting up both of my hands in the universal code for stop, saying No!Ž The man took a step back as I smiled and said, You dont have jewelry to go with these shoes, either.Ž He was nonplussed for a moment, then smiled and said, Oh, I guess youre not off a cruise ship.Ž As we walked away, laughing, EW gave me a high “ve, and said, Good one!Ž We are not off a cruise ship. We are cruising sailors. Now sailing in the Caribbean, Barbara Hart lived aboard with her husband year-round in Maine for eight years. She has an active blog: www.HartsAtSea.com, sharing what shes learned about living aboard, cruising, and staying married.

26 ALLATSEA.NET MARCH 2012This years St. Maarten Heineken Regatta has again attracted top sailors from around the world. While competitors can expect the usual exciting competition, the event will go ahead without regatta founder and head of the steering committee, Robbie Ferron, whose shock resignation over policy came just weeks before the “rst boat crossed the line. This will also be the last regatta for Race Director Heather Tackling. No other Caribbean regatta brings together such a gathering of international, regional and local sailing talent, many of whom return every year. For international sailing star Brad Van Liew, winner of the Velux 5 Oceans single-handed around the world race, the event offers an interesting challenge. His Open 60 Le Penguin proved to be a superb boat as he thrashed it around the globe and battled the storms of the Southern Ocean. Now it remains to be seen how the boat will cope with a large ”eet, sailing at close quarters, in the shifty wind conditions around St. Maarten. Five-times around the world veteran Bouwe Bekking returns to helm the 46ft Grand Soleil Antilope We are looking forward to the good weather and of course good breeze during the racing,Ž says Bekking.

28 ALLATSEA.NET MARCH 2012 Racing Circuit PETER CRAIG AT THE HELM OF THE ST. BARTH BUCKETBY ELLEN LAMPERT-GRAUX A behind the scenes look at an extraordinary threeday regatta for sailboats over 100ft in length. Ellen Lampert-Graux chats with event director Peter Craig on the eve of the 2012 Bucket, which takes place March 22nd … 25th on the French Caribbean island of Saint Barthlemy. ELLEN LAMPERT-GRAUX: What is your role with the Bucket, and what do you do on a year-round basis and then day-to-day during the event?PETER CRAIG: I was hired by the Bucket directors to manage the racing for the 2010 St Barths Bucket. Following that event, my company, Premiere Racing, was retained to manage all aspects of both Bucket events„on water and shore side. My title is event director. The three Bucket directors have remained actively involved in all aspects of the regattas with Tim Laughridge assuming the lead role as managing director. As is the case with any event, the event director is responsible for anything and everything to do with planning for and executing these regattas. That would include all local liaison, sponsor matters, entry promotion, social events, and executing all aspects of the event on site.ELG: How many boats are registered for this year, and is that the limit; can the event grow in the future or is it limited in size and scope?PC: While there is no “rmly established entry limit per se, there is the practical matter of safety on the racecourse. This is one of the reasons Premiere Racing was retained. One of our specialties is race management and I manage racing at regattas around the world. With the way we are running races now there are no issues with having even more entrants. But there is a second issue and that is the very unique Spirit of the Bucket. The directors and sponsors would like to retain that which has made this event what it is in the superyacht world. As such, the feeling is that we should keep entries under 50. For the 2012 edition we will have over 40 yachts, likely closer to 45.ELG: Can you talk a little about the organization of the race in terms of safety, with all those fabulous boats out there?

MARCH 2012 ALLATSEA.NET 29PC: There are a number of steps one can take to enhance safety for superyacht racing, particularly with a big ”eet. And we are taking all of them! For years the Bucket Regatta, under Hank Halsteds stewardship, set the standard with superyacht-safe racing rules and regulations. Much of this, and more, has been brought into play by the newly formed Superyacht Racing Association, which nearly all superyacht regattas worldwide are abiding by. This includes custom rules approved by the International Governing Body of the sport of sailboat racing. We take additional steps such as dividing the ”eet into three classes where they sail slightly different courses, hence different turning marks. Communications between yachts, designated safety of“cers, and minimum separation of 40 meters are just three of many steps we take to ensure that the St Barths Bucket is a safe race for these spectacular yachts.ELG: What are the biggest challenges of the Bucket in Saint Barth from your point of view ... and what makes it such a great race.PC: The biggest challenge is to refrain from changing anything. It is clearly the most popular superyacht regatta in the world, setting the standard for all others. It is important to maintain that Bucket Spirit and keep it fun for the yacht owners. The challenge with any event of this magnitude is to keep all of the constituents happy … the yacht owners, sponsors, stakeholders and the wonderful people of St Barth. There are a number of factors that have made this the most popular superyacht event. Perhaps the biggest is the fact that it is St Barth. Is there a better sailing venue in the world? Add in the directors focus on fun for the participants, a Bucket rating rule that has most entrants in the run for trophies, and the fact that the event is professionally run … and safe … and it is indeed a great race. Ellen Lampert-Graux lives in Saint Barthlemy where she is editor-in-chief of Harbour Magazine She writes regularly about entertainment design and technology for Live Design magazine, and about Caribbean architecture for MACO a Trinidad-based lifestyle magazine.

They sent gales and headwinds and adverse currents„and did everything possible to force us into Barbados with all our other transatlantic friends. But Im both stubborn and stupid in equal measure. I wanted to return to the Caribbean and end our 26 day passage from the Canaries in the Simpson Bay Lagoon. Why? In retrospect Im not sure. But the simplest explanation I can offer: Im a Lagoonie.

It was a frantic, mad rush, but exactly 40 minutes before the Simpson Bay Bridge was scheduled to open, Carolyn catted our anchor. I was just going to power directly to the bridge as Id done a hundred times before, but there was a new spiffy channel which went the long way around„and I decided to do the correct thing and follow it. It ended at bunch of anchored boats„which seemed odd, but, hey, it is SXM, right? So I powered through the boats„and ran hard aground at hull speed on a clump of dredging as they say.

34 ALLATSEA.NET MARCH 2012 Sailing Humor BY JULIAN PUTLEY There are many unusual issues that confront a group of people, especially several couples, when they are con“ned to the relatively small space of an average charter boat. As local personality and entertainer Tony Snell said: Your oldest best friends can soon become your newest worst enemies.Ž Areas of contention include the sharing of domestic chores, choices of restaurants or party venues, comments about a persons physical attributes (or de“ciencies) etc. As a charter skipper Charlie is pretty good at smoothing ruf”ed feathers, pouring oil on troubled waters and mixing that tropical cocktail with a certain pizzazz, enough to calm any impending stress. Some things, though, are a different kettle of “sh … and that appropriately describes the problem of personal hygiene. One such occasion that Charlie had to deal with recently involved a single gentleman who was manifestly unaware of his own body odor. Now Charlie is no pansy when it comes to being squeamish over unpleasant smells. He has unblocked foul smelling heads, cleaned disgusting bilges, hotbunked with various and sundry deck apes on long voyages and yacht deliveries, and even reluctantly cleaned up pools of vomit from well-heeled tourists who somehow insist on spewing up over the windward rail. But strong body odor on a charter is not only unpleasant but so easily avoidable. Charlie left the dock at the charter base with two full tanks of water. At the brie“ng of yacht systems the man in question was informed that an outside cockpit shower existed and that this was the most effective way to wash. In fact Charlie would bathe this way every morning and seldom used any of the boats precious fresh water supply … just jump in, go for a swim, come out, soap up, scrub down and then jump in again to rinse off. Charlie would towel off straight away to remove the stickiness of drying salt water. The unpleasant odor arrived on about day three. Charlie managed to swing the conservation around to types of shampoo and what kind did they use in the northern parts of England (where the culprit was from). That had no effect. The following morning Charlie went for his usual swim and when the smelly gent arrived in the cockpit, coffee in hand, Charlie managed to swing the conversation around to types of swimming and the ef“cacy of a morning dip. Apparently this still fell on deaf ears. The worst thing was that wherever the man sat it seemed to be upwind of Charlie. Charlie would move and then Smelly would move … just upwind of him; it was uncanny. On day “ve, early in the morning, Charlie heaved a sigh of relief; he heard the water pump running for a long time and presumed some relief from the noxious odor would be at hand; he was wrong. Smelly had indeed bathed and then donned the same rancid clothes. Charlie was almost at a loss. Then he remembered a short story that perhaps would hit home: A man disembarked from an international ”ight to Sweden bereft of his deodorant (thanks to Homeland Security). He went straight to the pharmacy to get a replacement. Do you have deodorant?Ž he asked the pretty young shop assistant. Yes sir,Ž she replied in that rather lilting Swedish accent. Would you like ball or aerosol?Ž Well, I was rather hoping youd have armpit,Ž he replied innocently. Charlie said he thought the joke was appreciated but the mans hygiene habits didnt change. Charlie thought that perhaps the Englishman was one of those brought up in post war Britain where baths were normally taken once a week.

They immediately slammed the boat onto the opposite tack, taking the strain off the broken rigging and narrowly keeping the mast aloft. It was like a piece of spaghetti,Ž my father says, recalling the event. About 300 nautical miles south of Bermuda, the skipper went aloft with a spare length of rope and lashed together a temporary shroud that allowed them to limp back to the island. The mast on the Gran Soleil was supported by solid rod rigging, which on commissioning was never properly bent around the upper spreader, ultimately causing excess stress and failure. The captains quick thinking, clever jury-rig and conservative sailing, saved the day.Chainplate FailureDuring the 2009 Atlantic Rally for Cruisers, the yacht Liberty suffered a broken chainplate on the port aft lower shroud. It proved a more dif“cult jury rig than the Gran Soleil, with potentially more dire consequences. When it happened; the yacht was mid-Atlantic, with still 1,500 miles to sail. The crew set about enacting a repair. The toerail was considered, but thought to be too weak, and in any case, the shroud was too short to reach it. Instead they took a spare halyard, and rove it as tightly as possible through the foredeck and midships cleats, using the primary to winch it tight. The shroud was af“xed to the line and tensioned. The repair worked, and the yacht made a safe landfall in St. Lucia a few weeks later. An even cleverer solution is to replace the actual chainplate. The same piece of Dyneema (see sidebar) that can be used to lash down a jury shroud, can be used to make a loop, which, with some thinking, can be af“xed to a bulkhead below decks and led through the hole in the deck where the broken chainplate had been, creating a stronger attachment point.DismastingToo often the initial reaction after a dismasting is to cut away the spar as quickly as possible for fear of punching a

Evaluate the situation “rst … that broken spar can be your best hope for a jury-rig, if it is not imminently threatening the hull. Instead, “gure out how to get it safely back aboard and save as much of it as possible. Yves Gelinas, a French single-hander, known for inventing the Cape Horn self-steering system, saved the rig from his Alberg 30 Jean-du-Sud after he was capsized and dismasted northwest of Cape Horn. He limped to Chatham Island (near New Zealand) under jury-rig and spent months repairing his mast from the scraps he saved. Later, he carried on round the world. If you do lose the mast, experiment. Stepping a spinnaker pole and setting small sails upside down can get you safely to port. Its impossible to describe the myriad scenarios involving rig failure at sea. The (hopefully) obvious point of this series is to avoid that kind of failure in the first place. Anything can happen at sea, and usually in the blink of an eye … do not panic. Stay calm, discuss the situation and brainstorm a list of solutions before attempting one.

40 ALLATSEA.NET MARCH 2012 Tips & Tricks Oops! Youve punched a hole in the in”atable. Now you have to repair it. Of course, the easiest way is to take it to a repair shop, but if you are in a rush to use it, you may have to do the job yourself. To get a neat repair, youll need to do several things. The “rst is to remember that in”atables can be ruined with careless work. A friend who used to run an in”atable repair shop once told me of a person who learned that an in”atable can be taken apart by heating the seams with a heat gun. After hed taken most of the boat apart, he couldnt put it back together and was forced to seek out a professional repair job. When you want a small hole to be mended without the patch showing, opening up a seam and repairing the hole from the inside is a perfect solution. But you must know what you are doing or the job can be botched. STORY AND PHOTOS BY ROGER MARSHALL REPAIRING YOUR INFLATABLE TAKING THE HISS OUT OF YOUR DINGHY 1 6 5Continued on page 43

The entire area will need to be cleaned and smoothed before a new patch can be applied. Figure 2: Use a Dremel tool with a cone shaped rasp or stone bit to clean the area down to the bare material. Figure 3: Mix your adhesive as you need it. Old glue does not adhere as well as freshly mixed adhesive. Figure 4: Just before applying adhesive wipe the area again with a solvent to ensure it is totally clean. Figure 5: Coat your patches with adhesive and let them sit for a few minutes to allow the first layer of glue to dry. Figure 6: Apply adhesive to the cleaned area on the boat using an inexpensive bristle brush with the bristles cut to about 3/8 inch. This allows you to work the glue into the fabric of the hull. Let the glue dry. Figure 7: Coat the patches and the hull with a second layer of adhesive. Figure 8: Apply the patch to the tube and smooth it down with a spatula. Work from the center toward the edges to remove all the air bubbles. Figure 9: Note the arrow on the patch to ensure it was placed in the right orientation. The operator is smoothing to eliminate air bubbles. Note the rounded corners on the patch and the operator wearing latex gloves to prevent contact with solvent and adhesive.

MARCH 2012 ALLATSEA.NET 43 Tips & Tricks If you simply need to install a patch, the “rst task is to cut your patch to the right size. Make sure that the patch material is similar to the material of the existing boat and of the right thickness. Also be sure to round the corners of the patch to prevent them from peeling up. Next, mask off the area where the patch will go. Use regular masking tape and carefully set up the rounded corners. Youll also need to remove any oxidized neoprene by lightly sanding the area. You can use sandpaper for this purpose, but professionals use a Dremel tool with a sanding stone. This ensures that the entire area is properly cleaned. Then wipe off the area with a solvent to remove any grease or oil. Wear gloves to keep the solvent off your hands and make sure that you are working in a well ventilated area. Solvent fumes, as well as glue fumes, can be harmful and are highly ”ammable. The next job is to mix new glue. Do not use old glue. Old glue tends to lose its effectiveness over time. The glue can be applied with a disposable brush on which the bristles have been cut down so they are about three-eighths of an inch long. This brush allows you to work the glue into the material. Coat both the patch and the sanded and cleaned area with the freshly mixed glue and give the glue about ten minutes to set up. Then coat both surfaces again and press them together, making sure beforehand that the patch is aligned properly. Getting the right alignment can be tricky because both the patch and the hull are coated with glue, and as soon as glue touches glue, it sticks. Finally, use a roller to iron the patch down onto the hull to eliminate any air bubbles. Youll “nd that the hull needs to be either totally de”ated or partially in”ated to do this job properly. Do not try it with the hull in”ated or the air will bubble out from under the patch. Clean up entails removing the masking tape and wiping the area with a solvent to remove any residues. Be sure to carefully dispose of unused glue. It is highly ”ammable. The job is not dif“cult if you have the right materials and take your time, and it can save a trip to the shop or better still, make the in”atable ready and save a charter.

LUCIAS SOUFRIERE MARINE MANAGEMENT AREA CONSERVATION IN ACTION Looking out from your cockpit into St. Lucias Soufriere Marine Management Area (SMMA) in the shadow of the Pitons, you might see a lot of activity. Red and white warning ”ags mark divers below the surface, local “sherman are hauling in “sh, swimmers are on the beach and local boatmen are assisting yachts with mooring balls. It is a busy place with many uses. What we cannot see is an ecosystem that twenty years ago was suffering from degradation of coastal water quality resulting from pollution and sedimentation from river and storm run-off, exploitation of the coral reefs, depletion of near shore “sh resources, loss of tourism potential and destruction of reefs by anchoring yachts. There was con”ict between divers and pot “shermen and between seine “shermen and yachts anchoring in seine “shing areas. In 1992 a collaborative process began to protect the natural resources and “nancial well being of the local “shermen and businesses dependant upon tourism. There were many people involved in the planning and in 1995 the SMMA was launched. The SMMA encompasses 12-kiGros Piton from the top of Petit Pition

Rangers and scientists do the monitoring. Within “ve years of creation of the management areas the catch of the “shermen within and outside the SMMA increased between 46% and 90%, depending on the type of gear the “shers used. The health of branching coral has also improved. Researchers believe that one of the reasons for the success of the SMMA, in terms of increasing reef “sh catches, is the network design with four main areas of no-take reserve interspersed with “shing priority and multiple-use areas. The plan also highlighted the importance of education of the local community as well as visitors about the details and bene“ts of the Soufriere Marine Management Area. The fee we pay when we pick up a mooring ball is a Coral Conservation Fee and that fee depends on the size of the boat and the time spent on a mooring. If you pay for the services of a boatman, that only covers his services and not the Coral Conservation Fee, which will be collected by a Park Ranger. It is easy to look from the outside and see a well thought out plan with a scienti“c monitoring program and professional Rangers collecting fees at the mooring balls. What we do not see are the years of consultation with different user groups, or the very contentious issues and many concessions made by each group to “nd a middle ground. Recently a new and similar area has been created from Canaries to Anse La Raye. The Canaries to Anse La Raye Marine Management Area (CAMMA) is modeled after the SMMA and will have the bene“t of two decades of lessons learned.

MARCH 2012 ALLATSEA.NET 53 Puerto Rico SAILORS IN THE NEWS JORGE SANTIAGOBY CAROL M. BAREUTHER Ponce Yacht and Fishing Clubs head coach Jorge Santiago dreams of sailing becoming the national sport of Puerto Rico. This isnt just wishful thinking. Santiago, as head coach and sailing instructor at the Ponce Yacht & Fishing Club (PYFC) since 2001, has an excellent record of recruiting kids to the program and turning them into international winners. Its something that has always come naturally to him. I was “ve years old playing at the yacht club when I “rst saw sailboards,Ž he says. Fernando Monllor, Sr., let me play on his board while he de-rigged and he soon started to give me rides. That was my “rst contact with the water and I was hooked.Ž Santiagos interest received another boost when at age nine his father invited him out on practice sessions with the Ramos brothers, Ronnie and Robbie, aboard the International Rolex Regatta-winning Campechano I was just an observer,Ž he says. I wasnt allowed to talk or touch anything, but it was a lot of fun.Ž The PYFC has played host to many international competitions. The 1978 Sun“sh World Championships and 1979 Pan American Games especially upped the number of Lasers and Sun“sh on the island. David Fernandez restored a group of Lasers, made his own sails, and started the “rst junior sailing program … which Santiago joined. Yet, while he sailed for fun, it was swimming where Santiago was most competitive. Then came the day when his father was to drive him to a swimming competition and the two decided to race the Copa Velasco, what is now the Puerto Rico Heineken International Regatta, instead, on Michael Serrales J/41, Don Q Santiago never returned to swimming, but began to learn about sailboat racing.Jorge on the tiller during the 2011 International Rolex Regatta PHOTO: DEAN BARNES

A poor score on the last day ultimately saw him “nish 31st. Not bad in a ”eet of over 100. Santiagos performance caught the eye of Ronnie Ramos. Ronnie identi“ed that the PYFC needed a learn-to-sail program and he asked me to head it up,Ž says Santiago. Today, while Santiago holds an accounting degree from Ponti“cal Catholic University of Puerto Rico, he trains juniors every Saturday from August to May. In the month of June, he runs the PYFC summer camp to teach sailing fundamentals. He also works with serious junior champions, training them for major competitions. One of these is Fernando Monllor, Jr., winner of the 2011 US National Sun“sh Midwinter Championship. What I try to do is to inspire con“dence in young sailors,Ž says Santiago. I give them guidelines so that they can develop their own style and know how to make decisions because in sailing the conditions will always change.Ž Over the last decade, Santiago has kept up with his own competitive sailing, taking a bronze medal in Snipes at the 2006 CAC Games and a silver medal in J/24s at the 2010 Games. He was also the 2011 IC-24 winner in the CORC Series aboard Team Maximus with crew Manuel Aviles, Luis llorrens, Michael Serrales, Jr. and Sebastian Luna, and looks forward to sailing both J/24s and IC-24s this spring. He also hopes to do more match racing. To this end, he and his team competed in the Gill Match Race at the BVI Spring Regatta and the Carlos Aguilar Match Race in St. Thomas, and he organized a match racing clinic in July at the PYFC taught by Peter Holmberg. This summer, after coaching his junior sailors at the Optimist World Championships, he plans to compete in the Sun“sh North Americans outside of Chicago, where he will also participate in a clinic at the Chicago Match Race Center. I want to start more match racing in Ponce and to host a regatta soon where we can invite teams from other islands,Ž says Santiago. Eventually, I hope to make ours a sailing community with kids going out on the water rather than playing baseball or basketball.Ž Carol M.

MARCH 2012 ALLATSEA.NET 57 United States Virgin Islands TALL SHIP BOUNTY VISITS CARIBBEAN NO MUTINY REPORTEDBY CAROL M. BAREUTHER A replica of one of the most famous sailing ships in history anchored in Charlotte Amalie harbor in December. Fresh from a European tour, the Bounty wasnt in search of breadfruit, but instead a few days in dry dock en route to her winter home between Piers 3 and 4 in Old San Juan, Puerto Rico, where she is open for public tours. Best known for the famous mutiny that took place in 1789 in Tahiti against the infamous Captain Bligh, this replica of HMS Bounty was built for the 1962 movie, Mutiny on the Bounty  starring Marlon Brando. The 180ft vessels past and present ownership is an interesting one. Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer (MGM) Studios commissioned the ship to be built in 1960. It was the “rst ship to ever be built from the hull up for a movie. This construction took place at the Smith & Rhuland Shipyard in Lunenburg, Nova Scotia. She was christened on the 28th of August 1961. At the time, Bounty cost $750,000 to construct. Plans from the original Bounty which began her career as the collier Bethia built in 1784 at the Blydes shipyard in Hull, England, were used. However, the present ship was lengthened by 30ft to accommodate the “lm crews. During production of the movie,Ž says Tracie Simonin, director of the HMS Bounty Organization, LLC, based in New York, MGM wanted to burn the ship at the end, as the original Bounty s fate. Marlon Brando stepped in and would not allow that to happen. He threatened to walk off the set and they could not “nish the “lm without him.Ž The Bounty subsequently went on a worldwide tour after the movies release. Years later, when Ted Turner of Turner Productions acquired MGMs library, he found himself the new owner of a ship. He used it in a few movies such as The film star Bounty on a visit to St. ThomasPHOTO: DEAN BARNES

Once Turner no longer wished to own the ship he donated it to the city of Fall River, Massachusetts, where they used it as a dockside attraction and sail training vessel. When the city could no longer afford to maintain the ship, it was put up for sale. This is where we came in,Ž says Simonin. In 2001, a private business man from Long Island, New York, purchased the Bounty from The Fall River Chamber of Commerce. The ship was not in great shape and starting to sink at the dock. The “rst thing the HMS Bounty Organization did was to restore the ship from the waterline down to make it seaworthy again. This was the “rst phase of the restoration and over a million dollars went into the project. We have since completed two additional phases of restoration to bring the ship back to her original glory. The restorations were spread over a few years.Ž Since then the ship has be used in the second and third of Disneys Pirates of the Caribbean movies, Dead Mans Chest and At Worlds End starring Johnny Depp; the Sponge Bob Square Pants movie; Disneys Oceans, and countless documentaries and commercials. In fact, Bounty is considered to be one of the most photographed ships today. This past season brought the Bounty to Europe where she visited the UK, Poland, Germany, Sweden and Norway.

By mid-December, the ship was docked in Old San Juan. We maintain a crew of 18 to 22 people during a sailing season,Ž says Simonin. They range in experience from new sailors to seasoned ones. Our Captain has been with the ship for over 15 years. It is a place he considers home!Ž Simonin adds, We pride ourselves on sailing the ship in the way it was intended still using the skills that were taught in 1789. Although we do have modern conveniences onboard, it is our intent to sail the ship as much as possible.Ž Some of these modern conveniences include a GPS, electricity and modern heads in place of the sextant and candles, and the chamberpots and head rail on the original Bounty Next up, the Bounty will set sail on its 2012 East Coast tour. Shell visit the ports of St. Augustine, Florida, in April; Savannah, Charleston, Wilmington and Greenport in May; Portsmouth and Philadelphia in June and “nally Newport, Newburyport and Halifax in July.

MARCH 2012 ALLATSEA.NET 61 United States Virgin Islands BOAT BUILDING NEWS FROM ST. CROIX NEW MONGOOSE 25 HITS THE WATERBY CAROL M. BAREUTHER The multihull tradition runs deep on the island of St. Croix. It all started in 1956 when well-known boat builder, Dick Newick, stopped on a beach in Frederiksted to cook some fresh “sh en route home to the U.S. from Europe. Newick ended up staying nearly 17 years on St. Croix and in that time designed and built a number of catamarans and trimarans based on ideas originating from his time in the South Paci“c. Today, the multihull tradition lives on. Newick is gone, but Gold Coast Yachts continues to build innovative multihulls as do private boat builders, such as George Moose Silva, who splashed his latest boat … a Mongoose 25 … in January. The Newicks were family friends,Ž explains Silva. Dick is the father of the modern multihull. My family moved to St. Croix from Annapolis in 1963 and I watched all of Dicks landmark boats … Cheers the Atlantic proa; and Three Cheers which was designed to race in the OSTAR (Observer Single-Handed Trans-Atlantic Race), and others … built here. That was quite a to-do back then and I fell in love with multihulls.Ž In the 1970s and for many years after, Silva worked for Teddys Charter Service sailing the 36ft Newick Tricia, Viti Viti twice daily over to Buck Island and back with day charter guests. The Viti Viti was the hot boat back then, and as such, it sowed the seeds for new and faster designs in the creative minds of captains such as Silva. Back then, to hit 20 knots was the holy grail,Ž Silva says. Nowadays boats routinely hit 40 knots.

MARCH 2012 ALLATSEA.NET 63 United States Virgin Islands sail shapes have come a long way. Today, my hulls are very different. By using lifting bodies that rise with forward motion and force water to ”ow under the hull instead of around it, reduces drag exponentially. With the use of Computer Aided Design (CAD), buoyancy centers can be designed to shift quickly to self-correct pitch. The result is a very stable, very fast boat.Ž The impetus for Silvas latest build came when Herb Alderson, who 35 years ago owned one of the early production trimarans that ultimately didnt fare well in Caribbean waters, approached Silva to build him a new daysailer. The deal was sealed over cocktails and Silva began his sketches on a napkin. Thus, the Mongoose 25 was conceived. First, I started by sketching and roughing in the key lines and ideas,Ž Silva explains. I still prefer old fashioned drafting with my curves and a pencil. So I pull out the Mylar and draw a scale picture. Then, I enter those lines in a CAD program and re“ne them. After that, I print full size patterns and build the molds. I built the armas “rst in reversible half molds and then the main hull. This boat is foam core, so the sheet foam is cut into strips and bent or heated into the mold then “ber-glassed. Essentially, its built from the inside out.Ž The Mongoose 25 is an ocean going daysailer capable of crossing from St. Croix to the BVI. Its easy to sail with a rotating aluminum wing mast. It has a large cockpit. And, it has open wings with trampolines. I love a back porch, or open stern, for easy access and fun at the beach,Ž says Silva. This puts the rudder under the boat instead of a transom hung kick up, but makes it more ef“cient. The boat also disassembles into three major parts joining in the middle. This was done to make it easier to move for shoreside assembly or shipping.Ž What makes the Mongoose 25 most special is that its locally designed and built for the waters around the Virgin Islands using modern techniques, directional fabrics and epoxy resin. In this type of rig, some sections of the vessel are under much less stress and this allows for a strong yet light build. Silva worked with fellow Crucian, Carlo Pedrini, to build the hulls and then “nished the rest with the occasional help of a few friends. The trimaran took Silva a year working alone to complete after the hulls were built. Sadly, over the years hurricanes have decimated the multihull ”eet on St. Croix,Ž says Silva. There are still a few left such as Llewellyn Westermans Mongoose 37, some Newicks and the Gold Coast boats. I hope this boat will spark new interests.Ž Carol M. Bareuther, RD, is a St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands based marine writer and registered dietitian.

MARCH 2012 ALLATSEA.NET 65LAURA DEKKER SAILS INTO HISTORY DUTCH TEEN BECOMES YOUNGEST SOLO CIRCUMNAVIGATORBY GARY E. BROWNSt. Maarten/St. Martin They said she would never do it but it would have taken more than an obstructive government and the power of the great oceans to stop 16-year-old Laura Dekker from becoming the youngest person to sail single-handed around the world. Dekker tied the knot on her circumnavigation on March 21st when she steered her 38ft Gin Fizz ketch Guppy into the Simpson Bay Lagoon to a tumultuous welcome from crowds lining the dock at the St. Maarten Yacht Club (SMYC). Earlier, Dekker was met at sea by a ”otilla of boats carrying island dignitaries and reporters from the international press. The jubilant teen expertly steered her yacht to the dock at the SMYC and, to the sounds of numerous horns and sirens echoing around the lagoon, stepped ashore into the arms of her family. Any successful record-breaking voyage is marked by celebration and it was nice to see the SMYC going out of their way to maintain the tradition. This was a special day for a special sailor. It would have been unforgivable had Dekker Children of the St. Maarten Yacht Club Youth Sailing Program welcome Laura back to the islandPHOTO: GARY BROWN/OCEANMEDIA

MARCH 2012 ALLATSEA.NET 67 St. Maarten/St. Martin not received the welcome she deserved in the port from which she set sail 366 days earlier. Also present on the dock were youngsters from the SMYC Youth Sailing Program who presented the circumnavigator with ”owers and a yacht club bergee. In an interview with All At Sea before setting out on her trip, Dekker said: When I started this voyage, I never thought about any media. The fuss, I didnt want it. I didnt do it because I wanted to be in the media. I did it because I like to sail and love the sea.Ž Having interviewed Dekker on her return, she stands by what she said, however, she is now more mature and realizes that, like it or not, her achievement has changed her life forever. You could say that Dekkers amazing voyage began when she was born aboard her parents yacht while it was anchored in New Zealand, during their circumnavigation 16 years ago. Voyaging is in her blood.

68 ALLATSEA.NET MARCH 2012At a brief press conference held on the SMYC dock, Dekker answered questions honestly and with little hesitation. However, she is still uncomfortable talking about her problems with the authorities in Holland, who tried to prevent her voyage from taking place. Poor reporting two years ago did nothing to help her cause and her mistrust of the press is justi“ed. Dekker was welcomed to St. Maarten by Education and Sports Minister Rhoda Arrindell. During a lengthy speech, Arrindell said: Today I am compelled to ask when will we, as adults, refrain from projecting our own fears on our youth, and thus stop contaminating their brave minds with cowardice?Ž Strong words from a minister in a world more concerned about what is politically correct than common sense. The teens voyage was indeed a brave venture. Shortly after All At Sea posted photos of Lauras return on their Facebook page, they received 92 likes and 23 comments, of which only three were negative. I enjoyed it a lot. Im really happy that I did it,Ž Dekker told reporters. Of course there were moments where I was like what the hell am I doing out here? but I never wanted to stop. Its a dream and I wanted to do it.Ž During her circumnavigation, she claims she never once hove-to or lay a-hull during bad weather. This is a testament to the boat, which she holds in deep affection, and to her seamanship. Her landfall on the southern tip of Africa was particularly challenging. When land hove into view, the wind was gusting over 50-knots and she had the boat reefed right down. She said getting into port was a relief.Ž She told this story in a matter-of-fact way that left me wondering how much it would have taken to ruffle this girl, on what was a near perfect circumnavigation. There were some problems with the boat and things did break. Her sails ripped and at one point she spent hours hanging over the stern while making repairs to the self-steering. Asked if she would like to take up a career in yacht racing, she said she wasnt interested and that all she wants to do is cruise. The theme of being at one with the sea is something she returns to time and again. In the February 2011 edition of All At Sea, I wrote: I recognize in Dekker a deep love of and respect for the sea and that is why she will succeed.Ž This remarkable girl did nothing to change my mind.

70 ALLATSEA.NET MARCH 2012 St. Barth TRANSAT B TO B VICTORY FOR FRANOIS GABARTBY ELLEN LAMPERT-GRAUX At 28 years old, French sailor Franois Gabart has proven hes got what it takes. When the Transat B to B (Back to Brittany) set sail from Gustavia in Saint Barthlemy on December 5th 2011, Gabart was attempting his “rst solo transatlantic race on an IMOCA 60, sponsored by French insurance company MACIF. He was also the youngest of the eight skippers in the race, so you can imagine his surprise when he took top honors, crossing the “nish line “rst on December 15, at 12:11am. I am a happy man,Ž con“rmed Gabart after his win. Its great to have won a race on the IMOCA circuit so quickly. This victory is even sweeter as I wasnt sure I could leave with the others as I had to work double time to make repairs to the boat before setting sail.Ž The eight skippers brought their boats to St Barth after completing the 2011 two-handed Transat Jacques Vabre, a race from Le Havre in France to Puerto Limon in Costa Rica. That race started on November 2nd, as the October 31st start was delayed due to bad weather. Interestingly the Transat B to B, which was meant to “nish in the port of Lorient, France, was cut short due to storms in the Bay of Biscay. The organizers drew a more southerly route to keep the skippers in safe conditions, with a virtual “nish line off the coast of Spain. Second place went to Armel Le Clach, skipper of Banque Populaire with Vincent Riou, on PRB (sponsored by the Carl Gustaf hotel in Saint Barth), in third: all three of these top racers now qualify for the 2012 Vende Globe. Behind them, Mike Golding ( Gamesa ) and Alex Thomson ( Hugo Boss ) eventually tied for fourth place. Thompson requested that the jury revise his ranking as he was at the far north of the ”eet when the new itinerary took them 300 miles off the coast of Vigo, Spain. After deliberating, the jury voted in Thompsons favor, placing him in a tie with Golding. Marc Guillemots Safran Jean-Pierre Dick (winner of the Jacques Vabre), sailing Virbac-Paprec 3 and Louis Burton aboard Bureau Valle completed the rankings. Lined up on the main docks in Gustavia, the eight hightech IMOCA 60s were the “rst racing boats to set sail from St Barth in the 2011-2012 season, which also includes the New Years Eve Regatta, The St Barth Bucket, Les Voiles de St Barth, The West Indies Regatta, and the Transat Ag2r.

MARCH 2012 ALLATSEA.NET 73 ST. BARTHS NEW YEARS EVE REGATTA CATAMARAN PHAEDO CLOCKS FASTEST TIMEBY ELLEN LAMPERT-GRAUXSt. Barth Mixed skies of sun and clouds greeted the sailors in the 17th annual New Years Eve Regatta in Saint Barthlemy. Thirteen boats took part in this December 31 around-the-island parade, of which ten crossed the “nish line. While the ”eet was smaller than in past years, there were many outstanding boats, such as Lone Fox Ira Epsteins 65ft classic ketch; Symmetry Abbott Browns 96ft Frers sloop; and the 138ft J-Boat Endeavor II replica, Hanuman But the winner was Phaedo Lloyd Thornburgs Gunboat 66, a jaunty, high-powered, orange catamaran, and the only multi-hull in the race. With winds averaging 20 knots and occasional rain showers, the boats headed around the island in a counter-clockwise direction, passing Gouverneur, Saline, and the point of Toiny, then along the northern coast to Flamands, around the outlying island of Forchue and back into the port of Gustavia. This itinerary was perfect for Thornburg and Phaedo a boat whose pedigree includes the 2011 Transatlantic Race from Newport, Rhode Island, to the coast of England, alongside such competitors as Maltese Falcon Thornburgs boat is based in Saint Barth in the winter, and the 2011 New Years Eve Regatta marked his second participation in the race, clocking in at 2 hours, 6 minutes, and 13 seconds. Hanuman had the second fastest time, with Symmetry coming in third. We love Saint Barth,Ž said Symmetry s owner Abbott Brown, its the best place to sail.Ž Although he has participated six times in the Saint Barth Bucket, this was the first time Symmetry had sailed in the New Years Eve event. It was fantastic, we had a blast,Ž notes Symmetry s Australian Captain Ross Kleiman. Sixteen to 17 knots of wind are ideal for us, but you can never have too much. Weve wanted to do this race for a long time, and it was perfect. We passed everybody along the way, and well de“nitely be back for the Bucket in March.Ž The remainder of the ”eet was comprised of smaller local boats, as this race is open to everyone, race organizer Marc Del Giudice explained. Although fast, Phaedo failed to break the record for the fastest time around the island, which stands at 1 hour, 32 minutes, and 7 seconds set by the 147ft Visione in 2004.

MARCH 2012 ALLATSEA.NET 75 Dominica DROP ANCHOR A NEW DESTINATION FOR SUPERYACHTS IN DOMINICABY ANDY SCHELL After years of planning, a family from West Texas has completed a new docking facility in Dominica. The Drop Anchor is comprised of buildings modeled in the local style, a sea-level bar and an unassuming restaurant overlooking the Caribbean Sea. Perhaps most important of all is a hurricane-proof dock that extends hundreds of feet from the shore. Built by the Richards family, the dock was the last part of the complex to be completed. Reinforced piles support the main concrete structure with wooden planks providing a walkway down the center. Yachts up to 150ft in length can Med-moor to the end of the pier in about 100ft of water. Smaller yachts can tie alongside the pier in about 12ft. Recently, the sail-training ship Argo … a 112ft staysail schooner … anchored off the pier after completing a transAtlantic passage. Drop Anchor was their “rst stop, as they knew Ashley Richards, one of the Richards daughters, would arrange island tours for the students, provide provisioning from the local market in town and allow them to “ll up with freshwater and take hot showers. The Roseau Market, the best in the Caribbean, is a long walk or a short taxi ride to the north. Drop Anchor also serves as a Dominican base for Broadreach yachts (gobroadreach.com) passing through on their own sail-training and community service projects. Daughter Shanon Richards worked for years as a dive instructor for Broadreach, which runs adventure travel, cultural immersion and sail-training programs for teenagers and college students around the world. Ashley Richards recently exhibited at the Antigua Charter Yacht Show and hopes to attract more yachts, large and small, to their little piece of paradise. There are moorings in the vicinity maintained by the neighboring locals, and cruisers can use the dock for their dinghies free of charge. Christopher Columbus famously described Dominica to the King of Spain by crumpling up a piece of velvet and tossing it on the table. With 5,000 mountain peaks, over 365 rivers, active volcanoes, friendly locals and some of the most well-preserved, authentic Caribbean culture, Dominica is as enticing today as it was upon Columbus landfall 500 years ago. The Richards hope their new facility will encourage more yachts to stop at the island and explore its natural wonders for themselves. Andy Schell is a sailor and journalist. He has worked professionally as a yacht rigger at Southbound Cruising Services in Annapolis, MD. He and his wife Maria Karlsson re-designed the rig on their yawl Arcturus before setting out across the Atlantic last summer.

76 ALLATSEA.NET MARCH 2012Records fell like sea spray on a blustery day and new lines in the sand were drawn during the second annual revival of the 76th Anniversary Mount Gay Rum Round Barbados Race. Six records were set by one UK and “ve local skippers, who each won their weight in Extra Old Mount Gay Rum, when the Barbados Cruising Club hosted this one-day race January 21st. The race attracted 28 entries from around the world with one yacht arriving the day before the event, having sailed from Italy directly to Barbados,Ž says organizer, Alene Krimholtz. That effort was rewarded in Mount Gay Rum.Ž This yacht was the 78-foot Reichel Pugh Maxi, Idea skippered by the UKs Tony McBride. McBride raced last year and “nished fourth in his class. He vowed to return on a bigger yacht to break the Absolute Monohull Record, and he did with a time of 5h 3m 34s, some seventeen minutes faster than the previous record set by Ron Joyce on Destination Fox Harbr Barbadian sailor Peter Hoad set the single-handed record of 9h 49m 58s on his J/24, Jabulani Hoad recaps his one lap around this 166-square-mile island: It was very windy. After the start I pulled ahead of all the boats that started at 7am and this was a con“dence boost. North Point was rough with messy waves from every direction. I got swamped about ten times. The east coast was easy with the waves now on my beam but still big. From Ragged Point to the “nish was a downwind ride. The boat felt sluggish; checking below I found that the speedo had been leaking. This caused me to stop every half hour to bail. I changed and polled out the 150 head sail. From then on it was a fast ride to the “nish with top speed of 14.8 knots.Ž Perfect conditions out on the water saw the round Barbados records tumble,Ž says Krimholtz. The trading Brigantine Tres Hombres was the last boat to “nish, safely returning a group of children from the Barbados Kids At Sea youth sailing program back to Carlisle Bay shortly before 10pm. Barbados MOUNT GAY RUM ROUND BARBADOS RACE SIX RECORDS SETBY CAROL M. BAREUTHER This race dates back to the 19th century when bragging rights were up for grabs and the captains weight in gold for the fastest Trading Schooner. This is the “rst time they have set up a regatta village in the inner basin of the Careenage in Bridgetown, and it worked well for this event. This same location will play host to the Classic Transat 2012 in December. Forty-“ve yachts are expected to arrive for this world-class event.

104 ALLATSEA.NET MARCH 2012 Caribbean Dining & Provisioning THE DISHBY CAPN JAN ROBINSONA sandwich usually contains a combination of salad vegetables, meat, cheese, and a variety of sauces or savory spreads between slices of bread. When Im preparing for a ”ight I think about sandwiches and usually make mine, which are essentially salads with some added protein pressed between two halves of a crusty roll. I only use bread when Im traveling; otherwise I like to do Veggie Wraps and/or Lettuce Wraps.CUBAN SANDWICH Prep time: 15 minutes. Chilling time: 1 hour. Cooking time: 1 hr 30 min. Makes: 4 sandwiches SANDWICH: 4 hero rolls, cut in half lengthwise 1 Tbsp mayonnaise (or more to taste) 1 Tbsp yellow mustard (or to taste) 8 thin slices deli ham 8 slices deli roasted pork, sliced about 1/4-inch thick Relish: Combine in a food processor, the olives, raisins and shallot; pulse until coarsely chopped. Add oil and vinegar; pulse until combined but not pureed. Transfer to an airtight container and refrigerate at least 1 hour or up to two weeks. Sandwich: Spread the top cut side of each roll with mayonnaise and bottom with mustard. Place 2 slices each ham, pork and cheese on bottom of each roll, then spread with 2 Tbsp relish. Cover with tops of rolls. In a large skillet, melt butter over medium-low heat. Place 2 sandwiches in skillet and press down using a large ”at heatproof object such as a bacon press or the bottom of a heavy skillet. Cook about 7 minutes, until golden brown and cheese is melted through, then turn and cook about another 7 minutes. Repeat with remaining 2 sandwiches. Serve immediately. Note: The Relish makes an amazing grilled sandwich out of an ordinary ham and cheese. Spread any leftover relish on crusty bread, crostini or crackers for an appetizer.NIOISE SALAD ON A BAGUETTEPrep time: 15 minutes. Chilling time: 15 minutes. Makes: 4 sandwiches DRESSING: 1 garlic clove Salt and freshly ground pepper 1 tsp Dijon mustard SALAD MIXTURE: 2 handfuls of lettuce, arugula, baby spinach or spring salad mix 1 sliced red onion, soaked in cold water for “ve minutes, drained and rinsed or 1/2 cup chopped green onions 1 small carrot, grated (about 1/4 cup grated carrot) 1 (5 oz) can water-packed tuna, drained 4 thin slices of cucumber 1/2 red or yellow bell pepper, cut in thin slices A few leaves fresh basil, cut in thin strips 1 hard-boiled egg, sliced Salt and pepper to taste 1 baguette, whole wheat sesame hamburger bun or roll of your choice Dressing: Puree the garlic with a generous pinch of salt in a mortar and pestle. With a pestle or a small whisk, work in the Dijon mustard, lemon juice, vinegar and olive oil. Add pepper and set aside. Salad: Combine all of the salad ingredients, except the hardboiled egg, in a bowl. Toss with the dressing until thoroughly coated. Pile half of this mixture onto the bottom half of Baguette or whatever roll you are using. Push it down, and arrange the slices of hard-boiled egg on top. Season; pile the remaining salad on top of the egg. It will look like a lot, but it will compress. Cover with the top half of roll: press down and wrap tightly in plastic, then put it in the fridge and allow it to sit for 10 to 15 minutes, or for several hours. Cut in half and serve. If only one half is eaten wrap the other half tightly, and refrigerate. Note: You can refrigerate wrapped sandwiches for up to two days.ASIAN LETTUCE WRAP Prep time: 20 minutes. Cooking time: 5 minutes. Serves: 4 16 Boston Bibb or butter lettuce leaves 1 lb lean ground turkey, chicken or beef 1 Tbsp olive oil 1 large onion, chopped 1 cup mushroom, chopped 2 cloves fresh garlic, minced 1 tsp soy sauce Rinse whole lettuce leaves and pat dry, being careful not tear them. Set aside. In a large skillet heat oil and saut turkey until cooked. Remove turkey and set aside. Cook the onion in the same pan, stirring frequently. Add mushrooms, garlic, soy sauce, hoisin sauce, ginger, vinegar, and chilli pepper sauce to the onions, and stir. Stir in chopped water chestnuts, green onions, sesame oil, and cooked turkey; continue cooking until the onions just begin to wilt, about 2 minutes. To serve: Arrange lettuce leaves around the outer edge of a large serving platter, and pile meat mixture in the center. Each person can spoon a portion of the meat mixture into a lettuce leaf, wrap it, eat it, and enjoy! Capt.
