8 ALLATSEA.NET APRIL 2012 Editors Log There are many things I like about being editor of this great magazine not least of which is the diversity of our writers who, month after month, contribute to its success. On my watch I have come to know many of them quite well yet have met few in person. Like most sailors everywhere, we have developed a bond, a sort of brotherhood of the sea through the written word. Some of our contributors focus on destinations. Others like to write technical articles or look for inspiration not on the sea but under it. We have writers who have studied the natural world and writer/sailors who like to cook and share their culinary skills. Humor plays a big part in our lives and we encourage that in All At Sea In fact a good sense of humor is as important at sea as a strong boat. Many of our contributors have sailed great distances in small boats, some have circumnavigated and others are about to do so. Through the pages of our magazine we share their wanderings and learn from their experiences. All At Sea is not just about the Caribbean, it is a proper seagoing magazine. If, through our writing, we encourage others to sail and explore this wonderful region then it makes it all the more worthwhile. In this edition, author Julian Putley looks back at the time before GPS forever changed the way we navigate at sea. Julian, like me, learned the art of navigation the traditional way„with a sextant, a watch and a set of tables. In his article he even mentions a plastic sextant and that is the very thing I used on my “rst Atlantic crossing: I bought the sextant at a ”ea market for $5. As a traditional navigator, I was proud of my skills but on rare occasions I screwed up mightily. I am now going to confess. This is the “rst time I have told this story and, other than my wife, who was there at the time, you are the only person to hear it. We were on passage from the States and planned to end our voyage in Marigot Bay, French St. Martin. The voyage Gary E. Brown, Editor NEVER FOLLOW THE BOAT IN FRONT...HER SKIPPER MIGHT BE A NAVIGATORhad been a mixed-bag of weather and breakages, the worst being the loss of a vital piece of our Aires self-steering gear. That loss meant we had to steer by hand. Already exhausted, we took watch-on and watch-off until days later the mountains of St. Martin hove into view. Being a good navigator, I constantly checked the chart and pilot books and regularly took bearings on the various headlands. As I laid off our position on the chart, I remember thinking a few things didnt add up, but by really studying the chart I was able to make everything “t. Okay, so the reef to port wasnt where it should be, if it should be there at all, and the land to starboard was rather ”atter than I expected, but what the hell, the charts were old and what did they know, I was the navigator here. My wife was now annoying me by repeatedly holding the chart in front of her eyes, turning it from side to side, and making the MmmŽ sound. At one point she even turned it upside-down. How rude is that!? As we closed the land, I noticed the high mountains beyond the lowland to starboard seemed to be detached and moving at an odd pace. My wife had by now doubled her efforts and was at the Mmm, mmm, er ƒ Ž stage. Enough, woman,Ž I shouted as we sailed into Marigot Bay. Grabbing the binoculars, I focused them on a ”ag ashore. Well, Magellan?Ž she sneered. Welcome to AnguillaŽ, I said. In St. Maarten she bought me a GPS. g s I like about is great maga which is the diver r r h o, month after c ess.

Despite the ongoing US embargo, the Hemingway International Yacht Club (HIYC) continues to offer the hand of friendship to cruisers, racers and sports “shermen. On May 21st the club will celebrate its 20th Anniversary. To mark the occasion they have organized a string of sailing events and workshops beginning April 26th, when the subject will be 80 Years of Nautical Relations USA … Cuba, Present and Perspectives.

There have been riots on a number of dinghy docks in St. Croix, Antigua, St. Maarten, Tortola, and Grenada. Four marine chandleries have been looted. Two police boats have been set a“re. One of the main focal points of protest has been the Captain Fatty sings: Ive got them no good hunt em down bareboater bluesA TONGUEINCHEEK LOOK AT THE RISE OF BAREBOATERS

APRIL 2012 ALLATSEA.NET 21 bulls eye t-shirts passed out by Pristine Paradise Charters. A number of arrow-shy customers have refused to wear them on the beach, where they feel particularly vulnerable to cross-bows. This is a humane, region-wide culling of the ”eet,Ž declared Ima Fonie of the Department of Fish and Fishy Business (DFFB). Obviously, the numbers of bareboaters have risen dramatically over recent years, while our collective ability to care for their humanitarian needs has not kept pace. Understandably, charter companies dont want to refuse legitimate business, so this pro-consensus, probusiness, pro-environment policy of sign em up, and cull em out seems a workable solution for all concerned. The overpopulation of our harbors was reaching epidemic proportions. Locals couldnt make dinner reservations„ or even buy sunblock on-island. Many of our harbors had more anchor-draggers than anchorers Something had to be done„in a controlled, humane, and relatively painless way. Lets face it„were saving these occasional sailors from the misery of fruitlessly searching for moorings and the agony of endlessly attempting to cram their dinghies into our bulging docks ƒ not to mention the long lines at Customs and Immigration. Nobody rational and reasonable in the eastern Caribbean is arguing about the obvious need to bring down the numbers of increasingly hungry, increasingly angry bareboaters roaming the Antilles, only the method. We initially proposed putting em to sleep, similar to how some countries handle the overpopulation of dogs and cats. Alas, we could not identify the Federal funding. Thus, when the Bow Hunter Groups stepped forward to offer their community services gratis„well, we jumped at the chance. Now, for many confused, frantic, sun-toasted bareboaters, the end comes swiftly, silently, and with great surety ƒ all big pluses. Sadly, weve been repeatedly accused of callousness„mostly by land-based journalists not doing their research. This is ridiculous. Nothing could be further from the truth. We care about the quality of life for all„ EVEN bareboaters!Ž Its an outrage,Ž declared Jack Tarr of the Weekend Warrior Sailing (WWS) consumer group. Bareboaters are human beings too. In the US of A, at least, yacht ownership doesnt afford you any extra civil rights ƒ only megamoney does! Plus, it is a cruel and inhumane practice ƒ to Bareboaters are human beings too.

Many of us started out as rough-and-ready bareboaters„if the truth be known. Of course, it goes without saying that there are simply too many bareboaters in the Caribbean„ even at shoreside nautical events such as Jimmy Buffett concerts, for example. But shooting defenseless, sunbathing bareboaters with bows and arrows? Isnt that a bit extreme? Surely this barbaric practice indicates a bit of pent up anger on the part of the shore-huggers! Even worse is the PIDA (Professionals Interested in Diving and Anarchy) proposal to allow spear“shing to protect our reefs. I mean, even ignoring the human element ƒ do we really want to train our local sharks to dine on long pig?Ž Needless to say, the gun-folks arent happy about being excluded. This is another example of the wishy-washy liberals being anti-gun,Ž said an aging actor from the NSA (National Shotgun Association) whose plastic surgery enabled him to look a lot like Charlton Hestons younger brother. Why only bow hunters? Okay, maybe this makes sense with sailboaters because of the Silky Silence of Sail ƒ but surely rental jet-ski operators wouldnt object to a loud 12 gauge blast or two!Ž The US Coasties are attempting to remain above the fray while stressing their Safety First campaign. Now, with recent changes in the bareboat seasons rules and regs, it is more important than ever to wear your Personal Floatation Device (PFD),Ž said a National Spokesperson in Washington, D.C. It could save your life or help ID your remains„either way, a considerable service to your next-of-kin.Ž The problem isnt the of“cial cull,Ž stated John Hi-Fly Hamilton of the kite surfers contingent, but rather that poachers are harvesting bareboaters out-of-season„even underage ones. Lets face it„bagging a 12 year old in a rented Opti is hardly something to brag about!Ž Perhaps the most grisly note was struck by the Food for Thought association spokeswoman. It is never correct to kill simply for sport,Ž said Connie Kompassion. Lets face it„nobody wants to die in vain, not even a barely-boater! So our philosophy is simple: if you kill it, eat it!Ž Not a good idea, dietary-wise,Ž says Karl Barely, of the US Department of Health. For one thing, old sailors ƒ especially bareboaters ƒ are notoriously tough. For another, they tend to be high in sodium.Ž Where is your compassion?Ž asks Mother T, who has a well-known harbor ministry (and reality TV show on Sea-Span) which administers to the marine-afflicted. Bareboating shouldnt be a crime„rather it should be looked upon as a controllable, occasionally-evencurable disease. Nobody wants to drown in sunblock, be whipped by flailing jib sheets, and have their lifesavings depleted at Foxys! And yet, many of bareboatings saddest victims return year after year for continued abuse„and not just by the sun. So, clearly, its an addiction. The bottom line is that bareboaters should be pitied, not punished!Ž Not true,Ž hisses Larry Hardon of Lubbers Against Leniency. Bareboaters know they are evil„why else would they strip naked and voluntarily jump off the Willie T ?Ž The largest charter company in the Lesser Antilles say they are offering special deals during Cull Week. Just like during hurricane season, if your charter is disrupted by a culling fatality„survivors win a bonus week! Yes, you can devote most of this bonus period to the memorial service, etc., but there should still be plenty of time for spinnaker flying, boogie boarding, and spousal keel-hauling.Ž Obviously, interviewing the actual bareboaters themselves is a rather delicate business. However, this reporter managed to snare a rare interview with one outspoken long-time bareboater about their hobby/addiction„and why theyre still keen on grabbing a mooring pennant at The Baths. I “rst chartered with Dick Avery aboard the schooner Victoria ,Ž said my elderly-but-game source (through a voice-disguise machine, so he couldnt be “ngered by audio-gram). That was, like, back in the Stone Age. Im like, yo dude, the original charterer and bareboater. Ive been playing the game so long; I even remember when charterboat companies were operating in St. Thomas! And I chartered an original CSY 44 ƒ this was, of course, before we realized that sailboats could go to windward.

24 ALLATSEA.NET APRIL 2012 Sailing Humor BY JULIAN PUTLEY Charlie has noticed a pattern of behavior when he gets a couple on board to begin a learn to sail, live-aboard sailing course. That is that the wife or female partner always tends to hang back when it comes to getting involved with practical aspects of sailing. Even when Charlie names the female in question, directs her to the job or task at hand and explains the reason why, the lady will often turn to her husband and ask: Should I go ahead and do that?Ž Dont ask him ,Ž responds Charlie, hes learning, too.Ž Sometimes it can be very dif“cult to get an overly-pampered female off her butt. Now, Im not trying to be sexist here, just saying it the way Charlie explained it to me. There are many expert female sailors out there: world girdlers, single-handers, racers ƒ etc. And its not only the ladies. Often a male crew member is either oblivious to a situation or reluctant to offer assistance to another crew member struggling with a problem. How many times has Charlie had to say, Go forward and give him a hand! Charlie has to explain that if youre a crew you have to muck in with all the work, all the duties and all the chores … then he relates his favorite story: Id just sailed across the Indian Ocean and dropped the hook in the Seychelles. I was on my own and after 30 days at sea my rush to get a lady aboard was perhaps driven by less than purist motives. Anyway, Nellie proved to be an excellent crew. She had unusual Seychellois recipes for the sea food we would catch. In the Chagos archipelago “sh, crab and turtle were abundant. She learned tacking, jibing and trimming the sails and would keep watch during night passages. We sailed to Mauritius and Reunion island and around the Cape of Storms without incident. I had intended to send her home from Cape Town but changed my mind at the last moment. We left from Cape Town bound for Brazil, a 30-day passage, and after a couple of days she declared that ƒ she wouldnt be doing watch keeping at night, just too afraid. When her share of the chores slacked off I made an executive decision. I changed course for Namibia and ƒ dropped her off.Ž There are sometimes gasps of shock, frowns of disapproval, even words of anger at such callousness; for most wannabe cruising couples this is a jaw dropping story. Most dont want to hear about this type of insecurity … but it certainly instills the need for everyone aboard to pull their weight. Charlie continues, Of course the single-hander doesnt have to worry about crew problems at all … and there are certainly other enticing bene“ts. Imagine pulling into Tahiti and having a beautiful, topless, sarong-clad Polynesian girl swim out to your boat with a smile and a hibiscus between her lips asking to come aboard.Ž Soon the female spouse is jumping up at every command, volunteering at every opportunity, even studying engine maintenance. Meanwhile the male is working extra hard and studying with gusto envisioning single-handing to tropical paradises. Charlie often uses these two examples of sailing scenarios. It seems to add a certain incentive. Julian Putley is the author of The Drinking Mans Guide to the BVI Sunfun Calypso and Sunfun Gospel .SAILING WITH CHARLIE INCENTIVE

Cruising Class was won by Reba skippered by Jon Charlton. Challenging conditions during the start in Road Harbour made for an eventful beginning to the racing, with winds changing from 20 knots to zero and back in a matter of minutes. Furthermore, the start was delayed when Sorceress entered in Racing Division, ran aground. Fortunately they were able to re”oat and make it to the start line. Racing division held two races consisting of an upwind leg to Brandywine Bay; a downwind leg to Nanny Cay, and an upwind leg to the “nish of the RBVIYC. The “rst race sailed one lap of the course, the second race two. Both races had identical results: Pipe Dream taking “rst place, Rushin Rowlette second, and Firewater third. Cruising Class also sailed to Brandywine Bay but then crossed the channel to round the south side of Dead Chest and Peter Island. They then re-crossed the channel to Nanny Cay, and sailed upwind to the “nish. The weather moderated as the day progressed and towards the end of racing perfect Caribbean conditions prevailed. Prize giving was held at the RBVIYC, and presented by his Excellency the Governor, Boyd McCleary. The Governor raced on board Reba winner of Cruising Class. Prizes from sponsors Latitude 18 were awarded to Cruising Class, and prizes from the RBVIYC to Racing Class.

Yet anglers who want to get a jump on catching and releasing these blue behemoths should head 40 miles south to St. Croix earlier in the year. A whopping twenty-four blue marlin were raised by anglers aboard seven boats competing in the 19th Annual Golden Hook Challenge, “shed February 11th … 12th. In the end, it was Mare Azul that earned best boat by being the “rst to catch and release two blue marlin. We went north the “rst day and didnt see any blue marlin,Ž says Carlos Acosta, who brought his Jersey Cape 36 Mare Azul all the way from Puerto Ricos south coast town of La Parguera to “sh in this tournament. We did catch a 40lb bull dolphin and another 25-pounder, so at least we had a good barbecue that night.Ž Meanwhile, the St. Croix-based team aboard Two Fer Sure a 29ft Topaz captained by Tom Sedgwick, had better luck. We headed to the S FAD (Fish Aggregating Device) off the West End of St. Croix and saw three blue marlin,Ž says Sedgwick. Two were a doubleheader and the third was a blue marlin we hooked up and fought for over a half hour.

Paul Stuart caught one and we lost the other. We decided to stay and work the same area since it seemed to be lucky. At 11:45 we had another strike and lost it, and then around 1pm, Peggy Noel caught our second marlin.Ž Two Fer Sure anglers, Jim Collington and Edward Beach, each caught a blue marlin. However, the last catch was after the Mare Azul team released their two. Readied equipment, good crew work and team effort led to Mare Azul s success, says Acosta. Everyone did their part.Ž All four released blue marlin were caught on arti“cial lures. Boats Mako Leisure Lady Living the Dream Fraidy Cat and Three of a Kind also “shed the tournament. The Golden Hook Challenge has been held in various months over the last two decades.

There are usually a few big ones thrown in for good measure. We had a very nice “sh; she was every bit of 500lb, on the boat I was “shing on during this tournament.

BAREUTHER It wasnt the wave of a wand, but the reel of a rod that won the Trinidad & Tobago-based team aboard the 54ft Bertram, Abracadabra the coveted Top Boat and Top Angler prizes in the Budget Marine Spice Island Bill“sh Tournament (BMSIBT), January 25th to 29th. Abracadabra was one of 50 boats and 256 anglers that “shed this annual tournament, one that has garnered international attendance due to its hot bill“shing and reputation for Grand Slams. In fact, a Grand Slam … catch and release of a blue marlin, white marlin and sail“sh in one day … is one of the reasons for Abracadabra s win. We consider this one of the main tournaments in the region and try to “sh it every year,Ž says Abracadabra s Capt. Stuart Dalgliesh. But most importantly we came to have fun.Ž A canon launched the Bimini start and the ”eet created an impressive parade as they cruised through the Carenage towards the open sea. The Abracadabra team headed west of St. Georges in winds gusting 25 to 30 knots and waves topping 15ft. The bad weather didnt dampen the “shing. A total of 28 bill“sh were released the “rst day, though this luck didnt rub off on Abracadabra The “rst day was very frustrating,Ž says Dalgliesh. We only had kitchen “sh to show, one dorado, one wahoo and two barracudas, while all around us boats were hooking bill“sh.Ž Continuing bad weather actually brought some magic to the Abracadabra team. It was very rough, but we kept to our game plan,Ž Dalgliesh explains. We released a sail, followed by a white marlin and then a blue marlin … Bam! A Grand Slam. We were ecstatic. We even closed off the day with another sail“sh. Whatever happened in the tournament after that was gravy.Ž Crew of Abracadabra with their haul of trophies

After a lay-day cook-out on the beach at long-time host, Grenada Yacht Club, the Abracadabra team went back out “shing and catching. The third day we were hoping for two blues,Ž says Dalgliesh. We released one blue, and one white and secretly hoped for a sail to duplicate the Grand Slam. Then, we hooked into a blue of about 300lb on a 30lb test line, which fought us for about two hours in terrible waters. Finally, when we were bringing him to the boat, the line snapped just as we touched the leader.Ž Abracadabra made up for their disappointment at losing the blue by taking home not only the Top Boat prize, but Dalglieshs son, Gordon, reeled in over half the teams points to earn the Top Angler prize. Other team members included Alan Sheppard, Chris Bones Mouttet, Jerome Rostant and Andrew Sa Gomes. Luck plays a big part, but the team also works well together,Ž says Dalgliesh. Also, please dont forget the Grand Slam!Ž This years BMSIBT welcomed anglers from more than nine countries, making it a truly international event. The global nature of the tournament, as well as its reputation for bill“sh conservation, drew a trio of “shing celebrities. These included Capt.

34 ALLATSEA.NET APRIL 2012Forty years ago the Global Positioning System, a satellite computerized mapping network was not even on the horizon, so to speak, for the private yachtsman. If you wanted to cruise offshore you had to know celestial navigation. And the knowledge of this art/science kept many would-be cruising sailors either coastwise sailing or “rmly anchored in their home port … the mysterious art being just too uncertain. An instrument as obscure as a sextant, a chronometer, almanacs and sight reduction tables were enough to “ll the neophyte with dread. Learning the uses of the above might be understood in a warm, bright classroom. However, at sea, grabbing a celestial body, bringing it to the horizon and timing the event with accuracy was another thing ƒ as was computing the results in a damp, rolling cabin. For those with a burning ambition to explore the world by sailing over the horizon, various methods of simpli“ed celestial navigation could be used. The North Star lies permanently above the North Pole, and its angle above the horizon (altitude) is your latitude. In other words if the North Star is sitting on the horizon you are feeling a bit warm as Seamanship & Voyaging LIFE...BEFORE GPS AUTHOR JULIAN PUTLEY POLISHES HIS ASTROLABE...

APRIL 2012 ALLATSEA.NET 35you are on the equator; if the same North Star is directly above, you are feeling a tad chilly; youre in polar bear country. Anywhere in between and you can “nd your latitude easily by measuring the angle between Polaris and the horizon. In the 17th century an astrolabe was used; today a cheap, plastic sextant would be adequate. If you knew your latitude on departure you could sail west and by keeping the pole star at the same height above the horizon (say with a pencil at arms length), you would maintain the latitude. Longitude was more dif“cult but DR (deduced reckoning); distance run along your course line would give you a rough idea. As you neared your destination, it would be prudent to slow down or even stop at night. Then a Radio Direction Finder (RDF) would be an important tool. A RDF was most useful in picking up a bearing from a land station. All airports in the 70s broadcast radio signals in Morse code and the identifying letters were recorded on maritime charts and on a published list of radio beacons. Youd tune into the frequency, identify the signal and then rotate the antennae or sometimes the radio itself until the signal died or dimmed, then youd have the bearing. From this you could plot a line of position. Two lines of position and youd have a “x, and three youd have a cocked hat where youd put your position in the middle, an even better “x. Good RDF signals were usually audible from a hundred miles distant, perhaps more. Today many radio beacons have been deemed obsolete and no longer transmit but commercial AM stations can still be useful. Know where you are NOT. On long ocean passages its not so necessary to know where you are as to know where you are not Its important to know that you are not near that coastline, rocky outcropping or reef but not important to know exactly where you are. On long passages its easy to veer off your rhumb line given the vagaries of weather and wind vanes but its practically irrelevant as long as you are not near a hazard, and that includes shipping lanes. The North Star has long been the sailors best friend at sea but celestial navigation using the sun, especially for a noon sight, was essential before GPS. A noon sight with either a morning Line of Position and/or an afternoon LOP gave you a good “xed position. If you managed to get a good morn-

36 ALLATSEA.NET APRIL 2012ing LOP you would advance it along your course line to your latitude. If you got a good afternoon LOP youd advance the latitude line to this LOP. Either way youd have a good “x. The basic navigation methods above stood me in good stead to undertake yacht deliveries in the mid seventies and I can remember well over a dozen passages from the States to the Caribbean and vice versa. Deliveries earned me enough to “t out a derelict Hollandia 28, acquired in Road Town, Tortola, in 1973. I threw out the rusty old engine, got rid of stanchions and pulpit and pushpit. I gutted the interior and installed a platform that was a bed, dining area and living room. I had a car battery for lights and a camping gas stove. An old Zenith short wave radio gave me accurate time and a sextant and portable RDF completed my navigation ensemble. After exploring the islands for several years I departed for Bermuda. She was ill-prepared for offshore passage making but I went anyway. They say the Lord looks after drunks and fools and at various times I “tted both categories.

Behind the “n, a tail moved. The boat that brought us was a short distance away; everyone on it was pointing at the shape that seemed to be heading straight towards me. It was dawn when we boarded the “shing boat and left Isla Holbox, northwest of Cancun. Isla Holbox is separated from the mainland by a lagoon. The mixture of currents in this area causes plankton to bloom profusely. Plankton attracts a variety of marine life forms, including an elusive creature. When the boats engine stopped, I dove into the water. After adjusting my snorkel, I peered under the surface to see what lay ahead. Visibility wasnt good but I sensed something big very close. The water around me seemed empty when suddenly I saw an enormous mouth, over a yard wide. I could do little but stare at this larger-than-life creature as it sucked in whatever came between its enormous jaws. The whale shark ( Rhincodon typus ), a “lter-feeder, is the largest “sh species on earth. The name whale shark comes from the “shs physiology: a shark bigger than most whales, which shares a similar “lter feeding technique. The largest specimen ever recorded was caught on November 11 1947 off the island of Baba, near Karachi, Pakistan. It was 41ft long, weighed 47,300lb and had a girth of 23ft. The creatures enormous mouth holds 300 rows of tiny teeth. Two small eyes are located towards the front of the wide, ”at head. The skin is marked with a checkerboard

Seasonal feeding aggregations of whale sharks occur at several sites, including Ningaloo Reef off Western Australia, Utila off Honduras, Isla Holbox off the Yucatan, and near the island of Zanzibar, in the Indian Ocean. Though occasionally seen far offshore, the creature has also been observed close to land.StatusThe species is considered vulnerable. Once targeted by commercial fisheries in areas where they seasonally congregate, all fishing and exporting of whale sharks for commercial purposes has been banned.Identi“cationWhat do whale sharks and the night sky have in common? Much, it seems. They are both on the large side. Both are physically attractive, if daunting to look at. And both whale sharks and the night sky have the same complexion: a sprinkling of light spots against a dark background. This last characteristic has caught the attention of Ecocean, an Australian marine conservation agency. Using a star recognition computational procedure, the agency has developed computer software that can assign a speci“c whale shark a digital “ngerprint. These are based on photographs of the precise and speci“c pattern of spots on the animals back. The goal is to discover whether whale sharks are experiencing the same population decline that were seeing in other shark species all over the world. Observers send in snapshots, which are fed into a database called the Whale

This allows Ecocean to track the movements of individual whale sharks. The results are ominous. For instance, the number of whale sharks observed around Ningaloo Reef in Western Australia, declined by 19% from 2001 to 2005. The species may in fact be swimming through its twilight years. Let us pray that that does not happen and that this magni“cent creature remains forever a part of the natural world. Joe Zentner is a retired professor and a freelance writer.DIVING WITH WHALE SHARKSWhale sharks are often cited when educating the public about the misconception that all sharks are man-eaters. Humans can swim alongside this giant “sh without risk. Enjoy, but please exercise prudence when around Mr. Big. SWIM TOURS: Mature whale sharks, which are three times the size of the largest great white shark, are peaceable creatures unfazed by visits from curious humans. As noted in this article, the creatures visit the Yucatan Peninsulas coast during the summer to feed. This situation presents an ideal opportunity to observe whale sharks up close. Mexicos Caribbean coast is one of the few places on earth where people can swim alongside whale sharks. This is an incredible marine experience that puts a person just a few yards away from a natural wonder of the world. Tours are held between June 1st and mid-September.

PAGE 45

APRIL 2012 ALLATSEA.NET 43 Winning a regatta isnt just about vessel weight, how clean the bottom is; the choice and type of sails or even the skills of the crew. Today, like in all other sports, nutrition … what you eat and drink before, during and after the race … can have a major impact on results. No one magical food offers all the key nutrients needed for peak performance. Similarly, sports drinks, energy bars, protein powders and vitamin supplements wont guarantee a win. The ideal diet for pepping-up an on-thewater performance consists of a variety of fresh wholesome foods, with plenty of ”uids taken throughout the day. Individual meals should weigh heavy on the carbohydrates, light on the fats, with protein sandwiched in between. This simple, yet salient prescription can help boost a tacticians concentration, build-up the brute muscular strength of a grinder, better the foredeck crews skillful agility and even bolster a single-handers solo power. This holds true for weekend regatta sailors as well as those training for the Olympics.Piles of Pasta or Pounds of Prime Rib?The real fuel foods for racing sailors are complex carbohydrates. Complex carbohydrates, like whole-grain breads and cereals, rice, pasta and starchy vegetables (corn, peas, potatoes), will provide sailors with far more stamina than high-priced protein bars. Simple carbohydrates, such as fruits and juices, can both help and hinder performance. Sailors downing a large bottle of juice or donut breakfast right before a race in hopes of achieving a burst of energy from a sugar high may actually experience the weakness and confusion indicative of a lowblood sugar reaction one to two hours into the event. The better breakfast bet is one that contains a mix of energy-giving carbohydrates and blood sugar-sustaining protein. Toast and eggs, a bagel and peanut butter, even a turkey sandwich are performance-enhancing breakfast choices. However, simple carbohydrates (juice or handful of dried fruit) can boost blood sugar and energy reserves if consumed one-and-a-half to two hours after the beginning of a race since this is when normal muscle glycogen stores are usually depleted. Sailors competing in grueling day-long or several day round-the-clock races need more protein than the Recommended Daily Allowance. This extra protein, however, can easily be eaten in the average diet. For example, a 150lb male racer eating a high-carbohydrate 3000 calorie diet can adequately ful“ll his needs by eating the amount of protein contained in: 7oz of lean meat, poultry or “sh, plus 2 cups low-fat milk and 3oz of cheese. Even vegetarian athletes can satisfactorily obtain this protein requirement by eating a variety of soy foods (veggie-burgers, tofu, soy beverages), dried peas and beans, nuts, grains and vegetables. Sailors should skip the protein powders. These man-made creations are expensive. Plus, their protein content may not be digested as well as natural food proteins and extra protein can put stress on kidneys when it comes to excreting unused protein metabolites such as urea.Fats … Friends or Foes?Active sailors sometimes think that because they burn so many calories, that platefuls of fried chicken or triple-sized fast-food burgers packaged with grease-slick fries make a Is your body receiving the correct fuel it needs for a long day on the water?

44 ALLATSEA.NET APRIL 2012 How To Eat a Race-Winning Diet Thirst is not always a reliable indicator of the bodys ”uid needs and can actually be a sign of dehydration. The best way for sailors to keep well hydrated is to consciously drink ”uids before, during and after a race. Plain water is the beverage of choice. However, diluted fruit juice (1 part juice mixed with 1.5 parts water) can perk muscular performance when drunk one-and-a half to two hours into an event. In addition to providing simple sugars, fruit juice also supplies the vital mineral, potassium. And, while it is true that sailors can lose a fair amount of sodium through perspiration, this loss can easily be replaced by ordinary foods in the diet. Sports drinks, like Gatorade and Powerade, offer sugar, but few other nutrients. Caffeine and alcohol contained in beverages like coffee and beer can hasten dehydration and are best consumed after racing with a variety of other foods and ”uids. Carol M. Bareuther, RD, is a St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands based marine writer and registered diet itian FLUID INTAKE WHILE RACINGA good rule of thumb is to drink: an event leaving land after arriving onshore. “ne bill of fare. Not so. As exercise intensity and duration increases, the body is less able to use fat as a fuel source and relies almost exclusively on carbohydrates. Also, highfat foods are heart unhealthy. Fat-“lled arteries are the last thing a sailor needs when aerobic capacity is perking at its max and land is barely visible on the horizon. Dietary fats should only supply 20 to 30 percent of total calories. This amount is equal to 80 grams fat in a 3,000 calorie diet. (For comparison: one single-sized fast food hamburger contains 43 grams of fat!) Therefore, sailors should pass up fried foods, eat fatty red meat infrequently, limit dishes cooked with lots of butter, margarine and oils and steer clear of overly processed foods (think chips and other salty snacks) and buttery bakery goods.Fluids … A Sailors Best FriendFluid is the number one nutrient needed by any athlete, especially sailors racing long hours on hot, humid days.

APRIL 2012 ALLATSEA.NET 49 British Virgin Islands We have declared this is the year of Wagner,Ž said Jerzy Knabe, Commodore of Londons Polish Yacht Club and organizer of the Wagner Sailing Rally. We decided it was time to get the memory of this Polish sailor back to the public,Ž Knabe said. He was forgotten because of historical events.Ž Wagner was the “rst Polish sailor to circumnavigate the world without an engine. It took three boats„ Zjawa Zjawa II and Zjawa III „and seven years to complete his voyage, according to the organizer. However, he could not return to Poland after the journey because World War II had broken out by 1939. While in England, on the last leg of the trip, he received a telegram from the Polish General Consul ordering him to abort the voyage because the Germans had attacked Poland. Zjawa III was requisitioned by the British Navy for war efforts and was later returned to Wagner, but he still did not return home because of the communist occupation of Poland. During the war he served on a merchant ship for the Polish Navy. After the war, he started a “shing business and met his wife, Mabel. By 1949, the couple decided to sail from Dublin, Ireland, to Australia, after selling the “shing business and Zjawa III They purchased a large yacht, Rubicon and set sail. After they arrived in Port of Spain, Trinidad, however, they realized Mabel was pregnant with their daughter Suzanna. They abandoned their trip to Australia and eventually found themselves in the Virgin Islands. In 1954 the couple bought Bellamy Cay, which is now home to the restaurant Last Resort, for $75. The Wagners called the BVI home for nine years, and their son, Michael, was born there. Wagner built a shipyard, a home and a clubhouse on Bellamy Cay. Today, a stone structure he built houses a portion of the Last Resort restaurant. He also helped in the construction of the airstrip on Beef Island, Knabe said. In 1958, the couple moved to Puerto Rico, where Wagner also built a marina„Wagner Shipyard & Marina. Eventually, they moved to Florida for health reasons. Wagner died there in 1992, never setting foot in Poland again after leaving for his around-the-world voyage. During the ceremony, the Caribbean Republic of Sailors of Chicago, the Polish Yachting Association of North Wagner was the “rst Polish sailor to circumnavigate the world without an engine. It took three boats„Zjawa, Zjawa II and Zjawa III„ and seven years to complete his voyage.

Obel Penn, a BVI-islander who worked with Wagner on construction projects and as a crewmember during a charter to Trinidad, attended the ceremony with his son Ephraim Penn, daughter Juliette Penn and grandson Marlon Penn, the Eighth District representative. He employed plenty of people from the villages,Ž Penn said of Wagner during a speech at the ceremony, adding, When he left, we all missed him, especially me, because he was a very kind and friendly gentleman.Ž Penn took part in the ceremony during the raising of the Polish and BVI ”ags above the memorial. Wagners widow, who lives in Florida, was unable to attend the ceremony due to health reasons. However, a letter she had written was read on her behalf. With his countless abilities it seemed there was nothing he could not do, no problem he could not solve,Ž she wrote. He never gave up.

52 ALLATSEA.NET APRIL 2012 British Virgin Islands SWEETHEARTS & CLASSICS IN THE BVI WIND BACK THE CLOCKBY CAROL M. BAREUTHER The seas looked like yesteryear when 44 classic yachts, sloops and schooners set sail in the 34th Sweethearts of the Caribbean and 30th Classic Yacht Regatta hosted by the BVIs West End Yacht Club (WEYC) out of the Jolly Roger Inn, February 18th … 19th. Winds barely blew six knots on the “rst day of the BVIs second largest regatta. The race committee duly shortened the course for the schooners and single-handers to a lap around Sandy Cay. In the end, it was gorgeous Heron that won the schooner race and earned the title, Spirit of the Sweethearts, while it was Cayennita Grande that placed “rst among the single-handers. The tactic to winning the single-handed was to round Little Thatch close by and try to get through the cut at Steele Point without tacking,Ž says St. Croixs Tony Sanpere, owner and skipper of the 1981-built J/36, Cayennita Grande I was the only boat that made it and that gave me the overall lead with still much of the race to go.Ž A small ”eet of the BVIs Squibs, a one-design keelboat “rst built in 1967, was raced by young crews from the BVI Watersports Center. After two races around Little Thatch, it was Joseph Wells, Delroy Gordon and Mareq Romney aboard Hope that took the title. The next day, Mother Nature obliged with brisker winds around 15 knots. Five different classes set sail on a course that rounded Pelican, Flanagan and Little Thatch Islands. Cayennita Grande s Sanpere lost in the Classics 34 to 45ft class to the BVIs Robin Tattersall aboard Diva a 30 Square Meter, yet he says about this type of inter-island racing, It was fun for us since I refuse to do windward/leeward races.Ž In the Wannabe Class, Hotel California Too a Santa Cruz 70, took the lead. Good crew, a good start and sailing conditions favorable to my boat,Ž is how Hotel California Toos owner/skipper Steve Schmidt describes his win.

APRIL 2012 ALLATSEA.NET 53 Sloops came out to race crewed by local students from the KATS and the Royal British Virgin Islands Yacht Clubs Youth Sailing program along with adult volunteers to guide them. They tend to hook anyone who sails on one,Ž says Geoffrey Brooks, curator of the Virgin Islands Maritime Museum, located at the Centre for Applied Marine Studies at the H. Lavity Stoutt Community College. They are very different from a deep keel boat. They rely on ballast stones for stability and it takes a special skill to tack them. You have to very carefully back the jib and hold it till you are well across before release. I have seen time after time experienced and successful hot yacht racing captains try to tack one of our sloops and end up stalling and sailing backwards. It can be very embarrassing! Once youve understood their characteristics they are fun to sail and surprisingly fast as well.Ž It was Sam Morrel, who skippered Youth Instructor a 25ft Tortola Sloop built in East End in 2000 by the late Osmond Davies, that championed the class. The broad mix of boats competing in this regatta begs the question, what is a Classic? Mike Kirk, a WEYC of“cer and regatta organizer, explains: The WEYC de“nition is Any boat thats design is 30 years or older. If we limited the race to only boats that were literally over 30 years of age we would have a very poor turn out and its all about opening things up for maximum participation. If someone builds a new boat but uses a classic style of design, we would accept it. For example, Kate was built about four years ago to an old 12-meter rule in St Kitts and has sailed with us twice. She comes all the way from St Kitts (no engine) to compete.Ž Upcoming, the WEYC will once again run its Goslings Cup Series. The Series will consist of Foxys Wooden Boat Regatta and Classic Plastic (May), Firecracker Regatta (July), Gustave Wilmerding (December) and Dark and Stormy (March 2013).

He landed his “rst, albeit non-paying, job as weekend crew on a sports “shing boat. Soon after, Scott began helping with the annual dry-haul, making lobster-pots, splicing lines and making nets. He quickly became a boat-a-holic. Scott furthered his desire for a nautical life by signing on as a junior seaman in the British Royal Naval Reserve. Here he spent weekends aboard minesweepers sailing to ports in France, Belgium and Holland. Two years later, he left school at age 17, quali“ed for a deck apprenticeship in the British Merchant Navy, ”ew to Kobe, Japan, and joined his “rst ship. Thus, he became as hooked on travel as he was on a seafaring life. By his early 20s, Scott had tired of stopping yet never getting to fully explore the ports of call. So, he left the Navy, slung a pack on his back, a surfboard under his arm and headed to Morocco for six months of sur“ng. From there he cast off on a series of yacht delivery jobs that leap-frogged him from Gibraltar to the Canaries, South Africa, Brazil, Florida and “nally to the Caribbean. I arrived in the Islands in 1980; “rst the Bahamas, then Antigua, before settling in the BVI,Ž tells Scott. The marine trades were developing back then but had not reached anything like the level of physical infrastructure and commercialism that exists today. I was a boat bum and the marine community seemed then more welcoming of such. Not so much nowadays and I think a penniless youngster wouldnt “nd it so easy to get by now as I did back then. Immigration was a little less stringent and it seemed life in general was simpler, a little more sensible and a lot more fun!Ž Eight years later Scott co-founded VISAR. Prior to this, there was an informal organization named The Power Squadron headed up by senior harbour pilot, Capt. George Forster. So the story goes, Forster was asked by the BVI government to develop a more formal organization that would of“cially take responsibility for marine search and rescue operations and become the territorys of“cial marine response unit. Scott, who at the time was managing director at Island Shipping and country manager for Tropical Shipping, was tapped by Forster to lend a hand to found VISAR. I was elected president in 1989, the year of Hurricane Hugo, for which VISAR provided major support to the marine community from Virgin Gorda to Culebra,Ž Scott recalls. I ran the radio net throughout the hurricane and coordinated the relief work we performed afterwards. We made a video documentary afterwards, which included many survivors interviews. Twenty-two years later that video is still in the top ten of most frequently viewed on www. onlinebvi.net.Ž Scotts adventures through the years are numerous. He took Richard Branson and John Hurt sailing for three days, worked with Geraldo Rivera and Hugh Downs on a 20/20 segment about BVI diving legend Burt Kilbride and a $2 billion treasure on the Anegada Reef, imported snow for a “lm shoot for the Republic of Jose Cuervos Winter Olympic Team at Marina Cay, had his appendix out in the maternity clinic during Antigua Sailing Week, and skippered what was once Silvio Berlusconis private yacht. Today, Scott has taken friends requests to heart and published his stories. His first book, The Songs and Verses, was printed last November and contains over 80 poems. His two other books, On Five Continents and Three Oceans and On Tropical Islands and Sparkling Seas, contain short stories and poems, and will be out this year. I still like to support VISAR and am donating 10% of all print edition sales of my books in the BVI to VISAR,Ž says Scott. Some vendors have jumped on board and upped that donation to as much as 30%. There are some VISAR stories in the books and at least one poem inspired by this worthy organization.Ž For more information about Scotts books, visit: www. caridiangroup.com Carol M.

It was a wonderful and unforgettable thing to see,Ž says Porter. Anguillas Kenny Richardson and Starling Rosario reveled in the conditions to finish first in the 420s. They were followed by fellow countrymen Jordan Peabody and Butchie Gumbs. The all-girl St. Maarten team of Saskia Looser and Bodine Beentjes had bad luck when their 420 developed equipment problems and forced them out of the first race. Revenge for St. Maarten came in the form of Rhone Findlay who stormed to victory in the Laser class with six points. To sweeten the results Johanna Looser and Alec Scarabelli, also from St. Maarten, shared second place with 14 points each. In the Optimist Gold Fleet (Age 12 and over), Lucas Miranda raised the ”ag for Puerto Rico. He fought off a strong challenge from local sailor Shemorie Richardson and St. Maarten racer Leonardo Knol, who “nished second and third, respectively. None were braver on this blustery day than those in the Optimist Silver Class, for 11-year-olds and under. Here St. Maarten dominated with top three places going to Ilian Halbertsma (11 points), Luke Bacon (14 points) and Nathan Smith (17 points). Regattas like this are tremendously important,Ž says AYSC Sailing Director Hazen Grant. It gives the AYSC a chance to show our neighboring islands that we can put on a fantastic regatta that is well organized, ef“cient and fun. Also it makes our sailors more motivated to excel because there is a matter of inter-island pride and bragging rights at stake.

Despite delays, due to the engineless vessel struggling in gusty winds, the brigantine was given a warm and friendly welcome by spectators and mega yachts alike. With the brigantine safely tied alongside the SMYC dock, the gangplank was lowered and guests welcomed aboard as part of a maritime experience day. This was co-hosted by the SMYC and Maritime School of the West Indies, and co-sponsored by the Caribbean Sail Training Association, in order to learn more about this traditional sailing ship. Regardless of its small size for a tall-ship, Tres Hombres has some lofty goals. The vessel is the brain child of three friends: Jorne Langelaan, Arjen Boogie Van Der Veen and Andreas Lackner (hence the name) and their aim is to provide and promote a more environmentally friendly method of transporting goods. In a time when the price of oil is rocketing and carbon footprints in the shipping industry are huge (one resource … TEDX Amsterdam, claim that 16 of the largest ships produce as much emissions as all the cars in the world), an alternative needs to be found. With this in mind Tres Hombres a cargo ship focusing on the concept of sustainable shipping, was born. The ship has an interesting history.

The boat was converted and refitted and, in 2007, rigged as a brigantine. In 2009 she left Holland and went into service. One of her first jobs included taking supplies and aid across the Atlantic to Haiti. She now sails the Atlantic carrying cargo in a green and eco-friendly way, sometimes visiting ports that larger and deeper draft vessels wouldnt get to, thus extending a hand to small local communities with fragile infrastructures. The ship also offers sail training opportunities to young people, teaching them traditional sailing and seamanship, navigation, sail handling and maintenance. Tres Hombres is the prototype for a new breed of sailing cargo transport; reflecting the grand old days of sail. With no engine, the ship relies solely on the wind for propulsion, qualifying its cargo as transported in a 100%, CO2-free way. She has two wind generators, two solar panels and a towed generator. They do keep a generator for emergencies and to run an air conditioning unit for heat sensitive items in the hold, like the Grenadian chocolate that they were transporting to New York. Apart from a few modern navigation and communication aids, the ship keeps a very traditional stance. I was shown around by a friendly Austrian called Tobi. He told me that the ship is flying the ensign of Sierra Leone due to regulations prohibiting a vessel of its type (a vesTres Hombres  galleyPHOTO: ROSIE BURR

On the foredeck a huge, new, traditionally styled manual windless takes up most of the deck. The crews sleeping quarters in the focsle seemed dark and dingy, the beds unmade. The galley is very basic with a household gas cooker and no more than a few feet of work-space, a water butt at one end and a tiny mess table. Water for washing up is on deck. Tools and spares are crammed into lockers. Some of the spaces, in which the crew moves around, are tiny. But then I remember that they are young; the sense of adventure and purpose in taking part in such a worthwhile project probably far outweighs the need for a tidy bed. And its easy to see that Captain Jorne Langelaan, one of the three friends, runs a tight ship; lines are coiled neatly and hang from their belaying pins and the decks are free of clutter. The rigging looks in good condition. The chart room is orderly and the officers mess is neat and tidy. Other projects are underway to further this new breed of sustainable transport.

64 ALLATSEA.NET APRIL 2012 St. Barth The “rst edition of the Saint Barth Fun Cup was held January 27th-29th, bringing windsur“ng into the galaxy of nautical events organized on this tiny French island. Launched by three French champions of the sport: Arnaud Daniel, Lionel Motire, and Antoine Questel (a St. Barth native ranked 12th worldwide and third best in France), the event comprised of slalom races in St. Jean Bay, and a long-distance run from the waters of Grand Cul-de-Sac back to St. Jean. Intentionally scheduled in January, the Saint Barth Fun Cup could become an of“cial warm-up for those competing in the world championships, before they go off to the “rst big races later in the year. The new event also allows participants to earn points in the French Sailing Association (FFV) ratings for long-distance races. The roster of competitors also included 19-time world champion Antoine Albeau of France, and the Hawaii-based Kevin Pritchard, a former world champion. Albeau proved his world-champion status by winning “ve of the six races over three days to easily secure the top spot. Second was Taty Frans from Bonaire, with Antoine Questel coming third much to the delight of his fans on the beach. Weather conditions were picture perfect with sunny skies and winds gusting up to 29 knots. St. Barth is a good wintertime place for the Europeans to train, and especially for local champion Antoine Questel,Ž says Pritchard. He lives in a perfect spot for training, and maybe now more people will come here to train with him.Ž With such a top-level roster for year one, this race has started on a strong footing and the champs say they are already planning to return next year … including Albeau, who has a new title to defend in St. Barth.

APRIL 2012 ALLATSEA.NET 65 AntiguaGILLY GOBINETPEN, PAINT AND PERFECTIONBY JANET HEIN Just like each of her paintings, Gilly Gobinets life is an intricate story “lled with color, intensity and captivating detail. These days, shes comfortably ensconced at the hub of Antiguas art world with a house-studiogallery on the shore where the walls of one room after another holds samples of her work. The work is eclectic: new amidst old, boats, botanicals, and images of West Indian architecture, all beckon viewers in. Visitors quickly get the picture … Gobinet is both talented and proli“c. Although she claims to have no formal art training, a degree in biology guarantees that depictions of plants and animals are spot on. I like animals and plants,Ž she said. Thats why I like painting them„everything has to be accurate.Ž Decades before art, science studies at Englands Sussex University led to a stint at a veterinary clinic and on to an editorial position with the Council of Europes Journal for Nature Conservation, where Gobinet honed a talent for writing. Artist Gilly Gobinet

66 ALLATSEA.NET APRIL 2012 Antigua Art blew in during 1984, the year Gobinet moved from England to Antigua. Employed in a real estate of“ce with more time than customers, she picked up a book bearing the message: You can be or do anything you like. Fancying the idea of drawing, she picked up a pen, drew a date palm, entered it in a contest, and won “rst place in the pen and ink category. That con“rming prize inspired Christmas cards, commissions and ultimately a career that has blossomed and grown each year. In the beginning it was all black and white until someone said: We live in a very colorful place ƒ why not add color?Ž Since another artist on the island was doing drawings with color wash, Gobinet said she opted for watercolor without lines, not realizing shed chosen the most dif“cult medium. Since adversity is more an allure than an obstacle to this talented woman, she set out to paint her world while tending three offspring, all under the age of “ve. I painted when I could. It was dif“cult because when I paint, I get totally into it.Ž Ten years after that “rst sketch, Gobinet had her “rst show at Antiguas famed Harmony Hall and, like a pebble in a pond, word of her work rippled outward, bringing in commissions from hotels, banks and private homes. Eventually she took the show on the road to Anguilla, Venezuela, Caracas and other Caribbean venues. Along the way, experimentation with color, medium and tools brought about a love affair with oil paint. I like it because it doesnt dry fast, its malleable,Ž she said. Work on paper spread to canvas, to cloth, to walls and back to paper in the form of cards, prints and books. Her “rst book Caribbean Christmas published by McMillan in 1998, took the reader on an island holiday tour. A few years later, Gobinet co-authored a volume of Caribbean Cocktails, which, in reality, is a libation-tour of the islands, one bar at a time; each page a complete painting. The Cool Caribbean Cocktail Book inspired the second of a series, which Gobinet decided to produce solo. The Cookery Book a compilation of recipes from famous kitchens, divulges scrumptious meals by ingredient, back story and off-the-wall fact. Secrets from Antiguas Carlisle Bay, Nevis Bananas and her own galley form a colorful, culinary chart of the islands. The books success was marked in 2008 when it was given the Gourmand World Cook Book Award for Best Illustrations, beating out competition from 21 countries and standing out as the only entry with both art and content created by the same person. The Cool Caribbean Books series continued on with Hot Spices, Luscious Fruit & Heady Herbs followed by  The Guide to Antiguan Churches and one for chocolate a“cionados: Dark Delicious Delights Each book, illustrated by Gobinet and authored by humorist Anthony Richards, is packed with tidbits of information like how to extract soursop pulp or how to tell youre being cheated while buying coconut water. All At Sea readers know Gilly Gobinet through a myriad of articles on yachts and yachties that have tacked through her world. She understands the on-the-water world from time spent at sea, especially from the deck of her favorite boat, Peddler She was onboard the 50 year old Arthur Robb yawl a few years ago when a string of events unfolded resulting in a dismasting and an extensive re“t. Peddler s story is featured in Antiguas Classic Regatta program, the publication beautifully pulled together by this years editor, Gilly Gobinet. Although boats are in Gobinets life, statistically there arent many in her paintings. I dont often paint boats,Ž she said. To paint boats, you must know them very well.Ž The lucky vessels that have sailed across her canvas are incredibly accurate, reality combined with rendition, captured by an artist who can turn simple into sublime.

APRIL 2012 ALLATSEA.NET 75 Montserrat IN THE SHADOW OF THE VOLCANO BY DEVI SHARP Approaching Montserrat from the south we see a stark rubble hillside with a high mountain wearing a cap of cloud and there is a faint smell of sulfur from the Soufriere Hills volcano. A stop in Montserrat has been on our list for several years, but you need to time your visit for a period of light easterly trade winds and no north swells to be comfortable in Little Bay. The people of Montserrat are resilient. In 1989 hurricane Hugo wiped out much of the islands infrastructure. Over 90% of the houses were damaged. People rebuilt and resumed their lives. In August 1995 the volcano that had been dormant for four hundred years awoke, and in 1997 lava ”ows buried three quarters of the island in ash rocks and debris, including Plymouth, the capital city. Just two years ago in February 2010 a dome collapsed sending more ash and rock fall onto the island. This stark landscape and resilient people have a story to tell. Joe Phillip, our guide, took us to lookouts where we could see the impact of the lava and debris ”ows. After 15 years, you can see where the pyroclastic ”ows covered a church leaving only a steeple, an entire golf course was buried and all that is left of a three story house is the copula at the top. Joe had a small album of photos of the landscape before the eruption and helped us compare those to the current situation and the differences were astonishing. It would have been dif“cult to see the impacts of the volcanic activity without the photos. I enjoyed the visit to the Montserrat Volcano Observatory where we took a tour of the command center housing the computers that display the devices monitoring the seismic activity … vibrations, gas and GPS (looking for shifting of the earth). We asked Joe about the current economy of the island and he said that there is a small amount of tourism, but exporting sand and gravel is the major source of income these days. In pre Hurricane Hugo days Montserrat was the home of Associated Independent Recording Studio where artists such as Paul McCartney, Dire Straits, Stevie Wonder, The Rolling Stones, Jimmy Buffett, Eric Clapton and many other famous artists recorded with the celebrated director, George Martin. The studio closed after Hurricane Hugo, but Sir George remained involved with the island and raised funds to construct the Montserrat Cultural Center. Have you ever wondered about the Jimmy Buffett song Volcano? The next day we hired Joe to take us to the trailhead for the Oriole walkway trail. The trail was easy to follow and in good shape. Hiking maps can be purchased from the tourism board and the Montserrat trust. Before the eruption, the 40 square mile island was the home to about 11,000 people; the remaining 5,000 people are trying to resume life and seem to be doing a pretty good job of rebuilding and carrying on.

76 ALLATSEA.NET APRIL 2012ST. LUCIAS BETH LYGOES OLYMPIC DREAM LOOKS FOR GOLD IN LASER RADIALSBY CAROL M. BAREUTHERSt. Lucia If Beth Lygoes dream comes true, St. Lucia will be represented for the “rst time in the Laser Radial Class at the 2012 Summer Olympic Games and Lygoe will be at the helm. A native of the UK, Lygoe started sailing with her father at the age of 11 and soon advanced to a single-handed dinghy called a Topper. It was in this class she began racing. Lygoe moved up to Laser Radials at age 17, competed in regattas throughout the UK and Europe, and raced in three Laser Radial Worlds from 1999 to 2001. Then, she discovered kite-sur“ng. I have been instructing kite-sur“ng and riding whenever the wind allows since 2001,Ž Lygoe explains. I moved to St Lucia to live, teach kite-sur“ng and train, and fell in love with the island, the people and the amazing conditions on the water, which now allow me to train every day.Ž Lygoes Olympic dream dates to her early days of sailing. However, the idea to actually campaign for a spot in the 2012 Summer Olympics took root two and a half years ago when she broke her leg in a kite-sur“ng accident.Ž I spent six weeks with my leg up, resting and recovering,Ž she explains. I wanted to prove to myself that I could come back from this injury stronger than ever, so I set myself the challenge of a lifetime to try and qualify for London 2012. Once I got all the paperwork through for my Lucian citizenship, I started training harder than ever, using both laser sailing and kite-sur“ng to get stronger, faster and “tter.Ž Last fall, in the run up to the ISAF Sailing World Championships in Perth, Australia, in December, Lygoe trained especially rigorously. She sailed out in Rodney Bay, where she could choose to train in ”at water or go out into the channel in the waves and kite-surfed in Cas en Bas where she owns a kite school. Then she ”ew to Australia. During the Championships I hiked my guts out and put every bit of energy I could into the racing,Ž Lygoe explains. Racing in the laser class is tough. A one-design class means that when youre mid-”eet every mark rounding is a scrap with at least ten other boats!Ž Lygoe ultimately “nished in Perth 62nd out of 102 boats. The heart breaking fact was “nishing as the 30th nation, when only the top 29 nations gained Olympic quali“cation,Ž she says. Being so close to my dream and missing out by only one spot has proved to me that I can sail faster, so at present I am back home training harder than ever.Ž Next up, Lygoe will head to the Laser Radial World Championships in Germany in May. She hopes to gain one of the last nine slots available for this summers Games. What would it mean to her to actually sail in the Olympics? It would be a dream come true,Ž she says. I have the full backing and support of the St Lucia Olympic Committee, who are helping me with funding and without whose help all of this would not be possible. When I compete abroad, I proudly ”y St Lucias ”ag on my sail and feel honored to represent our island.Ž Carol M. Bareuther, RD, is a St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands based marine writer and registered dietitian. Beth Lygoe chasing the Olympic dream

104 ALLATSEA.NET APRIL 2012 Caribbean Dining & Provisioning THE DISHBY CAPN JAN ROBINSONReturning from Antigua aboard M/V Huntress I was fortunate enough to be able to interview their chef Tim MacDonald … winner of the Antigua Culinary Contest … Concours de Chefs, for yachts over 160ft. Here is a quick recipe that Tim prepared for the crew … delicious!TUNA STEAKS WITH BLOOD ORANGE SALADPrep time: 15 minutes. Cooking time: 8 minutes. Serves: 6 6 (6 oz) tuna steaks 1 tsp Old Bay seasoning Moroccan spice blend BLOOD ORANGE SALAD: 6 Sliced Blood Oranges Bunch of asparagus, BBQ and rested 1 pomegranate, pluced of all its seeds 6 shredded Belgian Endives Preheat two griddle pans till they are hot. Rub the Old Bay seasoning into the tuna steaks. Have a glass of wine. Place all of the salad ingredients in a large bowl and mix. Place the salad onto a large oval platter. Place the tuna steaks onto the griddles and quickly sear for one minute on each side being careful to turn every 30 seconds to achieve a crisscross pattern. Place on top of the salad and serve!BLUE CHEESE STUFFED DATES WRAPPED IN BACONPrep time: 20 minutes. Cooking time: 40 minutes. Serves: 20 10 oz sliced bacon, cut in half 10 oz pitted dates 2-1/2 oz blue cheese Preheat the oven to 375 F (190 C). Slice dates in half and open them up. Pinch off pieces of blue cheese and place them into the center of the dates. Close the dates and wrap a half-slice of bacon around the outside. Secure each one with a toothpick. Arrange in a baking dish. Bake 20 minutes then turn dates over and cook 20 minutes more for even cooking or until the bacon is crisp.RADISHES WITH TARRAGON BEURRE BLANCPrep time: 15 minutes. Serves: 6 1/4 cup minced shallot 3/4 stick (6 Tbsp) cold unsalted butter, cut into tablespoons 1/2 cup dry white wine In a small heavy saucepan over moderately low heat, melt 1 tbsp butter and cook shallot stirring, until softened. Add wine and boil until liquid is reduced to about 1/4 cup. Reduce heat to low and whisk in remaining 5 Tbsp butter, 1 piece at a time, lifting pan occasionally to cool mixture and adding each piece of butter before previous one has completely melted. Whisk in lemon juice, tarragon, and salt and pepper to taste. Serve Beurre Blanc in a separate dish with radishes and salt.CHOCOLATE EARL GREY CAKEPrep time: 15 minutes. Cooking time: 50. Serves: 10 6 Earl Grey tea bags or 2 Tbsp losse Earl Grey 1 cup water cup (1 stick) butter) 3 eggs 4 oz unsweetened chocolate, melted and cooled Preheat the oven to 350 F (176 C). Coat an 8-cup ”uted tube pan with cooking spray. Brew the tea in the water 4 to 5 minutes. Remove the tea bags or strain the leaves and set the brewed tea aside. Using a mixer, beat the butter, eggs, and granulated sugar until ”uffy. Blend in the chocolate. Beat in the ”our, baking soda, baking powder, salt, yogurt, and brewed tea. Pour into a pan. Bake 50 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the cake comes out with a few crumbs attached. Remove from oven and let stand 5 minutes. Turn out of pan and cool. Dust with confectioners sugar.
