8 ALLATSEA.NET MAY 2012 Editors Log What a crazy few months. I cant open my mailbox without news of yet another regatta and the thrilling exploits of those who take their pleasure on the race course. Looking for a word to sum it up, I would say evolving “ts the bill. Regattas are being forced to change with the times and driving the changes are the competitors themselves. With bigger and faster boats, often sailed by professional crews, many regattas are struggling to keep pace. For some yacht clubs and governing bodies, trying to keep up with the competition from other islands and the amount of cash they can pump into a regatta, is becoming a major challenge. And some see it as a backward step. Competitive yacht racing has always been expensive. You expect millions of dollars to be spent on organizing the Americas Cup and the big offshore campaigns such as the Vendee Globe and Volvo Ocean Race, but you dont expected to see such big budgets in the Caribbean. Have regatta organizers created a monster? The answer to that is yes, in part, they have. Big, well funded regattas, like squalls that roar across the water taking all the wind with them, leave not a breath for the smaller regattas and some have been cancelled this season. Its not all full speed ahead and damn the torpedoes. Some regattas, having successfully attracted the sailing rock stars they craved, are now looking at ways to get more grassroots sailors to take part by introducing open classes. In changing times, these regattas lead the way. In this edition, Susan Zaluski describes the building of a Traditional Tortola boat on Jost Van Dyke (page 38). Wooden boat building is something that is dear to my heart as I once made my living building and repairing wooden boats. When I worked as a shipwright, wooden boat building was seen as a dying art and one that was almost impossible to learn. Since then there has been a renaissance in wooden boat building and boat building schools are all the rage. Some companies are even offering apprenticeships. Jan, my wife, was my apprentice and she was the only one I would trust with the bucking iron. For the uninitiated, a bucking iron is a large metal cylinder, weighing about ten pounds, with a small nipple embedded in one end. Posh bucking irons have a butt like a ri”e that “ts against your shoulder. This makes it more comfortable to use. We had the poor mans verGary E. Brown, Editor RACING OR CRUISING THE BUCKING IRON STOPS HERE!sion, which you held in two hands. A bucking iron is used for hanging planks. The shipwright outside the boat (Jan) drives a copper rivet through a pre-drilled hole in the plank and frame and then holds the nipple of the bucking iron against the head of the rivet. Inside the hull, the other shipwright then places a rove (a copper washer) over the inboard end of the rivet and using a small hollow metal tube, drives the rove down the rivet until it is snug against the frame. Then the fun starts. Using a ball pein hammer, the shipwright inside peins over the rivet as his mate, on the outside, holds the nipple tight against the head of the rivet and throws all their weight behind the bucking iron. The shape of the hull dictates the stance taken by the one holding the bucking iron. Some planks are high on the hull while others are low down forcing you to kneel or lay on your back in the mud. After a few days and a several planks, my wife grew to hate the bucking iron and slightly altered its name. I would have changed places with her, but then you have never seen my wife use a hammer, and dents in my new planking and frames would have made me cry. When I moved from repairing wooden boats to (gulp) plastic, like any good shipwright I took my collection of specialized tool with me. I have my caulking irons and mallets, seaming tools and caulking rakes. Jan never told me what she did with her bucking iron ƒ The editor at work

20 ALLATSEA.NET MAY 2012 Racing CircuitGILL COMMODORES CUP There are many adjectives one might employ to describe the sailing conditions in Simpson Bay, off the south coast of St. Maarten, for the running of the Gill Commodores Cup, the kick-off to the 32nd annual St. Maarten Heineken Regatta. Sporty, sunny, and breezyŽ would all apply. In easterly winds of 18-22 knots and seas of three to “ve feet, 25 boats in four classes set sail in the two-race series scored separately from the St. Maarten Heineken Regatta for the ”at-out racing crews, many of whom use the regatta as a practice day before the start of the three-day main event. It couldnt have been a better day,Ž said David Pritchard, president of Gill North America, the events of“cial supplier of technical racing and sailing gear and sponsors the Gill Commodores Cup. The race management was excellent; the racing went off right on the money. And its such a unique event, with such an international group of sailors. From our perspective as a sponsor, it couldnt be friendlier.Ž The Gill Commodores Cup showcased several of the top match-ups in the ”eet. In Class 1, Bill Alcotts 65ft Equation and Marco Iglesiuss Volvo 70, Gran Jotiti squared of like a pair of prize “ghters in the regattas “gurative Heavyweight Division. At the end of the bout, however, the clear winner was Equation with a pair of bullets. Gran Jotiti earned second, and John Wilsons powerful 78ft sloop, Idea was third. The powerful Class 2 division, loaded with half a dozen strong teams, saw some of the closest racing.

22 ALLATSEA.NET MAY 2012 Racing Circuit On a shifty, challenging course that put a premium on tactics and boat handling, British Virgin Island skipper Colin Rathbun topped an international “eld of competitors in the waters of St. Maartens Simpson Bay Lagoon to win the fourth annual Budget Marine Match Racing Cup. For his efforts, Rathbun and crew grabbed the winners purse of $5,000. The second-place “nisher, David Storrs, a U.S. sailor based on Long Island Sound, received $2,000. In the petit “nal, Russian match racer Eugeny Nikiforov beat Hollands Bouwe Bekking„one of the worlds top ocean racers„in straight sets for the third-place prize of $1,000. In match racing the press focuses on the skipper, which is unfortunate,Ž said Rathbun. It really is the ultimate team sport. Nick Cunha is our bowman and Kevin Wrigley does the main and calls tactics. They put the boat in the right direction and told me where to point it.Ž Rathbun and Storrs advanced to the “nals after dominating the competition in the seven-”ight round-robin tournament, in which each skipper and their two-person crews race against one another aboard identical 20ft Jeanneau Sunfast sloops. Storrs„sailing with recent U.S. college sailing stars Steph Roble and Maggie Shea tore through the preliminary rounds with a 6-0 score. In the “rst race of the “nals, Storrss bow tapped Rathbuns boat amidships and he was ”agged for the penalty infraction. Rathbun went on to take the start and cruised to a wire-to-wire victory. In what proved to be the “nal race, the two skippers hit the line at speed, with Rathbun at the committee boat end of the line on port and Storrs at the pin end on starboard. Storrs maintained a seven-second lead at the windward mark but downwind Rathbun had narrowed the lead to four seconds at the leeward buoy. On the second beat and with victory in sight, Rathbun forged ahead and held a 14-second lead to the “nish. Colin found a way to beat us, but this has really been fun,Ž said Storrs. Ive never been to St. Maarten before and I was thrilled to get an invite. And well be back as often as they ask.ŽBUDGET MARINE MATCH RACE CUP RATHBUN WINS IN CHALLENGING CONDITIONS Above: Wind shifts made life difficult at the top mark. Left: Colin Rathbun

MAY 2012 ALLATSEA.NET 23 RORC CARIBBEAN 600A SPECTACULAR SUCCESS The Caribbeans only offshore race attracted 578 sailors from 36 countries including a number of world-class Spanish sailors racing on the Volvo 70, Gran Jotiti and Swan 56, Clem Some of worlds most extraordinary yachts, “ve over 100ft, entered the race. The 214ft Baltic, Hetairos skippered by Vincent Fauquenoy, took line honors, “nishing the course in 2d 39m 32s. Hetairos navigator, Marc Lagesse, admitted to being surprised to be the “rst yacht to “nish. From a navigators point of view, I got a few calls not quite right. However, we did have a few decisions work out for us by chance and I would always say it is better to be lucky than good,Ž Lagesse said. Hetairos was pushed hard by George Davids Rambler and it was not until half way through the race that the big boat managed to pass the 90ft maxi. Niklas Zennstroms JV72, Rn was the next yacht home. Less than an hour behind Rambler she claimed the overall win on corrected time. Team Rn have been looking forward to this race,Ž Zennstrom said. The reason I was attracted to the race was that we enjoyed Antigua Sailing Week and the idea of an offshore race in the Caribbean is very appealing.Ž The multihull record for this event has not been beaten since the inaugural race in 2009. The 63ft Trimaran, Paradox skippered by Olivier Vigoureux, was “rst home but failed to better Region Guadeloupes record set in the inaugural race of 2009. Colin Buf“ns Swan 62, Uxorious IV was “rst to “nish in IRC 1.

24 ALLATSEA.NET MAY 2012In absolutely perfect Caribbean racing conditions, with steady trades pumping out of the east at anywhere from 12 to 25 knots, a solid ”eet just shy of 200 boats„including a record-setting twenty catamarans and trimarans„ set sail in early March in the waters off St. Maarten for the 32nd annual running of the sudsy St. Maarten Heineken Regatta. The events motto„Serious Fun„once again held true, as the racers, competing in 16 separate classes, reveled by day in the pumping breeze and three to “ve-foot turquoise seas, and by night at the world-class parties that truly make the Heineken Regatta a one-of-a-kind event. When the “nal scores were tallied, however, no sailors had more fun than those aboard Richard Wesslunds J/120, El Ocaso which earned the prize for the regattas Most Worthy Performance Overall by virtue of winning the events most competitive class, CSA 4. This was our sixth year racing in St. Maarten,Ž said Wesslund. Weve won our division twice but never this prize.

Built in 1929 to a design by a young naval architect named Olin Stephens, Dorade launched the legendary designers career the next year when it won the 1930 Transatlantic Race. Brooks brought the refurbished 52-foot yawl to the islands in preparation for this years Newport-Bermuda Race, an event Dorade also won in 1932. Dorade wasnt the only yacht, however, with a well-established record in international racing circles. Representing a more contemporary take on state-of-the-art offshore racers was Bill Alcotts Farr-designed Transpac 65, Equation which won the grueling Sydney-Hobart Race in 2007, when she was called Rosebud On the “rst day of racing, on March 1st, Equation and another heavyweight contender„Ernesto Corntinas Volvo 70, Gran Jotiti crewed by an all-star line-up of Spanish Americas Cup and Volvo Ocean Race veterans„waged an epic duel in CSA 1 on the annual round-the-island race that kicks off the festivities. On elapsed time, Gran Jotiti won the battle in a time of 3: 03: 26 with Equation just four minutes in arrears. That was still quick enough to give Equation the victory on corrected time. It set the stage for what appeared to be a weekend of close racing, but unfortunately, Equation broke a spreader falling off a steep wave on the second day of competition, and Gran Jotiti coasted to a class victory in CSA 1. In Multihull 1, Peter Aschenbrenners graceful, bird-like Irens-designed 63-foot tri, Paradox also parlayed a win in the opening round-the-island race (in a blistering time of 2: 48:19) into an easy overall victory in her division.

26 ALLATSEA.NET MAY 2012 Racing Circuit As in every St. Maarten Heineken Regatta, the ”eet was represented by a broad cross-section of boats and competitors, not to mention a strong contingent of chartered bareboats. At the upper end of the scale was a pair of Swan 100s: Tomek Ulatowskis Varsovie and Bill and Carolyn Titus Virago the latter the winner of CSA 2. On the diminutive side of things was a trio of Melges 24s, including local St. Maarten boats sailed by Andrea Scarabelli ( Budget Marine/ Gill ) and co-skippers Frits Bus and Peter Houtzager ( Coors Light ), who “nished “rst and second, respectively, in CSA 3. Sprinkled between those extremes were dozens of onedesigns, custom boats and racer/cruisers. As always, local knowledge played a major role in the outcomes of several divisions. That was certainly the case in CSA 5, where Sir Robert Velasquez, at the helm of his well-known Beneteau 45F5, LEsperance drove to victory.

MAY 2012 ALLATSEA.NET 27 Sailing HumorBY CAPN FATTY GOODLANDER THE NW MARITIMES SPRING SYMPOSIUM GOES FAT I recently had the honor of giving the Keynote address at the NW Maritimes Spring Symposium in Port Townsend, Washington. Im happy to report I fell in love with the place, people, and organization … a “ner group of sailors could not be found. Most of all, I fell in love with the town itself. (The Mayor crashed my cocktail party, how cool is that?) To say that it is boat-crazed is to make an understatement. Ive never been in any place so head-over-heels in love with sailing vessels. The only explanation of how this came to be, which makes any sense to me, is that after a century of wooden boat building, enough Cuprous Oxide (a marine wood preservative) leaked into the water system to derange them all. Picture a town where all the hippies gulped down one-toomany jello shots of bilge water and you have the general idea. The local shipwrights actually snort dry rot in the Pacific Norwest! Copies of Wooden Boat magazine are kept with Maxim and Playboy … so they dont get drooled on too much. Seedy guys in dirty foul weather jackets actually roam up and down the streets outside the shipyard, selling pilfered caulking irons, mast-hoops, and draw-spokes. Even the local ladies get into it. Sailor girls in Port Townsend wont sleep with guys who dont know how to long-splice, worm-and-parcel, or tie a double-constrictor knot. ... even the S&M crowd in Port Townsend have ragged copies of Ashleys. Land logic just doesnt apply in Port Townsend. It is, of course, the home of the Port Townsend Wooden Boat Festival. Capn Fatty rolling home across the Atlantic

28 ALLATSEA.NET MAY 2012 Sailing Humor This is an entire week where the Woodies literally runriot and terrorize any lubbers who dont know their port from starboard. This is the strange and twisted marine madness into which I innocently walked … fresh from seven years of serenity upon the sea. The actual attendees of the symposium were limited to 200. However, there were 25 presenters besides myself, including Bob Perry, Beth Leonard, Brion Toss, Steve DAntonio, Barbara Marret, Ace Spragg, Mark Bunzel, Dan Stabbert, Matt Thompson, Carol Hasse, Dan Newland, Chuck Hawley, Brion Toss, etc. My “rst seminar was on Cruising Cheaply. I started off briskly with this statement: I have two messages for you. One, dont waste your money frivolously, and, two, dont listen to experts. And all of you have just spent 300 bucks to hear all kinds of experts ... at least one of which is an uneducated penniless fool who can barely afford shoes ... and who intends to lecture you sternly on your spending habits.Ž Does this make sense?Ž I asked, and then shouted, NO!Ž I quickly followed this up with, Is it too late to get your money back? YES!Ž Indeed, it is odd to be in a room full of people wearing watches, which cost more than the vessel you just circumnavigated on ... while youre wearing discarded clothes looted from the dumpster behind Good Will, and telling these stylishly-dressed people they should be handling their money differently. But such is the cruising life when translated ashore. The Keynote, of course, was key. It started at 7:30 in the evening and was scheduled to go to 9pm. I started off by saying I was going to sum up everything theyd learned thus far and would learn the following day„ and them turned on a large fan in front of a giant pail of water. Next, I dropped a piece of Tupperware into the water, which immediately blew downwind. Thats it,Ž I said. I know it seems simplistic, but thats it. Sailing isnt complicated; it is we modern sailors who are complicating it.Ž Yeah, I thought it was a fairly lame opening too … but they didnt. Having already sat through endless hours of highly technical monologues on serious marine subjects … it hit their funny bone perfectly. Im like a prize-“ghter. Once I get you on the ropes, you never recover. I had people literally falling out of their seats with laughter. One woman told me later it was everything she could do not to pee.Ž I took that as high praise. It was a magic evening during which I could do no wrong. For instance, I had the “rst few slides of my PowerPoint presentation intentionally goofed up … as a joke. I was going to pretend to be befuddled. But somehow it didnt work ... and slides started zipping back-and-forth at random, which completely befuddled me for real, which the audience found hysterical because of the set-up. ... so much for planning. It is an amazing feeling to have a roomful of adults„a large group of otherwise sane, intelligent people„laughing uncontrollably at your every utterance. I mean, sure, I intended to be funny but these folks were so in tune with my wacked sense of humor that they were laughing before the punch line! I spoke for two solid hours and had them in the palm of my hand the entire time. It was better than my wildest, most outrageous public-speaking fantasy. (I may be a crushing bore on my next outing but at least I had my moment.) Id promised the organizers that theyd have my full attention for the entire “ve days I was there … and they used me like a 24/7 word slave. I attended every cocktail party, breakfast, etc., for the duration. The institute is housed in a brand new building which is perfectly suited for the task. Even better, the administration is extremely ef“cient, laid-back, and friendly. Theyre actually real people ... wonderful people ... sailors, even ... and I grew to love them all within hours of our meeting. It wasnt as if I was working for them as much as we were part of a wonderful party of sailors spreading the joy of offshore sailing. We laughed and laughed. I valued their input. ... perhaps a few less dildo jokes,Ž the director cautiously requested and I immediately/graciously dropped about a dozen from my routine. I never dined alone the entire time. I slept seldom, if at all. One of my design/build heroes, Russ Brown, is part of the scene there … a young, up-and-coming yacht designer I knew as a wild-child in St. Augustine, Florida. (Yes, son of Sea Runner Jim.) The last time Russ and I met was in Bora Bora when he screeched by in his ultra fast proa with Steve Callahan. Russ is now marketing boat-building kits, and his latest nesting dinghy is a (practical and strong) work of art. Capn Ace Spragg was there. Shes a local sailing instructor, and was proud to show me her lovely Fraid Knot And when things got weird in the Blue Moose (love those breakfast platters!), I was more than happy to hide behind her skirts. Another confession: Im smitten by Carol Hasse as well. Ive always loved her sails. They are among the best-built rags on this planet and her loft crew completely wowed me with their passion for hand-worked perfection. ... it was the nicest sail loft Ive ever had the pleasure to

PAGE 31

MAY 2012 ALLATSEA.NET 29 hang out at and hear the famous bell ring-out yet another sail ... er, sale! Of course, I was just one of thousands of admirers„as Carol is as much Town Promoter as Sailmaker. But it is wonderful to lime in a sail loft where the passion for the craft is so palpable. Most American sail lofts arent really sail lofts anymore ... not even close. Of course, I respect Carol as a marine business woman and sailmaker tremendously but I mostly respect her as a human being, as member of my watery tribe, as a person Im proud to share this planet with. There is a little sign-up sheet about boys and girls in her loft, which almost brought tears to my eyes. Right then and there I decided to someday order a sail from her ... if only to watch her lovely loft ladies smile. Brion Toss was another local boater who impressed me. We had a great time cracking jokes (and, perhaps, conveying a bit of marine info) during the panel discussion (moderated skillfully by Chuck Hawley) on Sunday morning. Brions understanding of rigging is both encyclopedic and unique and the language he uses to convey his knowledge is as elegant as the man. (He changed me forever with the line, ... step into the rig!Ž his Zen-concept of being one-with-the-boat.) In a way it was funny … I was hired to teach but spent most of my time learning. Surely, this is the sign of a great educational experience. I have always loved Mystic Seaport, of course. But its focus is primarily on the past. The Northwestern Maritime folks are in-the-moment, and a blast to be associated with on all levels. My “nest hour was actually two hours when, in a desperate move to earn even more money from my sweat, the NW Maritime brain trust scheduled a special, Meet Fatty cocktail party (sponsored by the Three Sheets website) for folks who didnt have the time or money to attend the full seminar. Tickets were just ten dollars, and 50 people came from as far away as Portland and Seattle. I was deeply honored„especially to see folks with antifouling paint on their clothes and epoxy in their hair„ spending their hard-earned dollars to ... give me a warm hug. (Thats what it felt like to me, to be hugging old friends Id never met.) Im not sure how Barbara, Carrie, and Jake manage to pull it off so smoothly and so gracefully but they have a saltstained utopia for sailors out there in Port Townsend. I was extremely happy to be part of the mix. Capn Fatty Goodlander has lived aboard for 52 of his 60 years, and has circumnavigated twice.

30 ALLATSEA.NET MAY 2012 Sailing Humor BY JULIAN PUTLEY GRAPHICS BY HANNAH WELCH Charlie was a teenager in the late 60s and early 70s and, according to recent wisdom; it was the best time to be growing up … if you werent drafted into a questionable war, that is. It was the time of peace and love, getting high and great music. It was cool to drop out, tune in and turn on … and, as Crosby Stills, Nash and Young sang: If you cant be with the one you love, love the one youre with.Ž Nowadays the world is a harsher place; terrorism impacts our daily lives, AIDS makes casual sex more risky and time constraints limit our freedom. Theres tension between the haves and the have-nots and the gap between the rich and poor is greater than ever before. Life in the Caribbean, though, is still relatively trouble free. There are less laws and less policing of laws, teenage sex and extra-marital sex is a booming pastime and the music scene is still as hot as ever. The laidback lifestyle often catches tourists by surprise especially when it comes to restaurant service, punctuality of ferries and taxis etc. Of course it doesnt take long before laidback becomes agreeable. To help uptight tourists get into the swing of Caribbean life Charlie sometimes plays his favorite Trinidadian calypso describing sexual transgression. Its called Shame and Scandal in the Family and its a classic. The story tells of a boy who wants to marry his sweetheart but his father, when asked for advice, forbids it saying the girl is his sister (unbeknown to his mother); thus shame and scandal in the family. Months later, with another girl in tow, his daddy tells him the same thing. The end of the calypso has the truly comical twist that has made this Caribbean classic so enduring. The boy goes to his mother and, rather embarrassed, explains his dilemma, only to be told, Go man go! Your daddy aint your daddy but your daddy dont know!Ž There are times when Charlie looks back at the old days and smiles to himself. Then one day he received an E-mail from a young man asking if he knew the young mans mother. He did and replied in the positive. More questions came, more and more inquisitive. Then a bombshell: I believe you are my father.Ž Charlie thought back. The lady in question had been a crew on an inter-island freighter and Charlie had signed on for one voyage down island to bring fruit from Dominica to St Thomas. He remembered a night swinging gently at anchor under a moonlit sky, several rum drinks, the perfume of frangipani, lapping waves against the hull. Yes, romance had been in the air, yes, yes … well, was it possible? Well, yes it was. To cut a long story short. After several questions and a blood test the result was negative. But that Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young song still resonates every time Charlie hears it. He still smiles but theres no question he dodged a bullet that night.

PAGE 39

MAY 2012 ALLATSEA.NET 37 Unless one is an accomplished free-diver with exceptional breath holding skills, the “rst step for a budding underwater photographer is learning to scuba dive and, secondly, learning and mastering buoyancy and breath control. Without these two skills, the resultant underwater photographs will strike fear in the hearts of those who feel obligated to view them. Its much better to receive oohs and ahhs than see your audience squirm, yawn, and suddenly remember they have several important phone calls to make. There is a vast difference between looking into the viewers dull, bleary eyes and looking into bright, admiring eyes eagerly awaiting the next photograph. Many a beginning underwater photographer has become discouraged, given up, and sold his equipment on E-Bay simply because his buoyancy and breath control skills were not up to par. I dont know how you take photos like that? I cant even get “sh in my photoŽ. How many times I have heard those statements. The solution is quite simple. The discouraged photographer was bouncing around in the water column like a ping pong ball or ”oundering and ”apping, trying to stay put while the subject of the photo is either right where it was when “rst spotted or has ”ed in terror. With many recreational diving certi“cation agencies, beginning scuba courses are designed simply to teach new divers the most basic skills. Many students are greatly overweighted in order to get them to the bottom. Too much weight creates many problems, especially for the underwater photographer. Too much weight means dif“culty holding position. Too much weight causes stress, which leads to increased air consumption and shorter bottom times. And, too much weight means poor diving posture and loss of “n control thus silt, mud, and sand foul the water and misplaced “n kicks damage the marine environment. An over-weighted diver often ends up plopped on the bottom like jetsam. To gain con“dence and polish skills, new divers should continue their education with advanced courses and practice with experienced divers. Most certi“cation agencies offer buoyancy control courses upon completion of the beginner course. Not only divers but also the marine environment would bene“t greatly from all divers enrolling in buoyancy courses, particularly those who want to take underwater photos. Underwater photographers must have exemplary buoyancy skills; otherwise, the camera lens probably wont be locked on the subject and the photo will be blurry because, just as on land, the photographer and the camera must remain completely motionless. A moving camera makes for a blurry photo and theres nothing a photo editor can do to “x that. Poor buoyancy and breath control skills lead to missed photo opportunities, stress, and sometimes danger when the photographer has ignored the basics. Imagine “nding a large patch of Blue Bell Sea Squirts growing on the side of a shipwreck. Their spectacular dark blue-purple against yellow sponge and rusty ships hull will make a fantastic photo. Its the spectacular shot for which the over-weighted photographer is hoping. He concentrates on focusing but the Blue Bells disappear from the frame. He looks around the camera and sees the Blue Bells 10ft below. He descends. He starts to focus, no Blue Bells, he looks around the camera, the Blue Bells are now 15ft above. Up and down completely unaware until his dive computer beeps. Hes run low on air, has no photos, and because his buoyancy skills are so poor hes burned a tank of air and now must make a surface swim to the boat. His struggle to stay in place created what is known as a bounce dive and violated a basic rule of diving. Know where you are in the water column and do not bounce up and down because you could be setting yourself up for a trip to the chamber. Until you can pick a spot on the anchor chain, stare at it, and be still, you are not ready to enter the water with a camera. So, while you are researching underwater photo gear and “guring out how you will “nance the latest and greatest, take a buoyancy course and practice, practice, practice.

Several years ago, the Jost Van Dykes Preservation Society (JVDPS) embarked on the mighty task of building an updated version of a Tortola boat, as those distinctive looking sailing sloops came to be known. Although Jost Van Dyke itself was not a major boat-building center, the residents have been celebrated as the best seamen and “shermen in the BVI. Sailing, “shing and the repair of the Tortola boats was a mainstay of life on Jost Van Dyke until the mid 1960s, when sailing vessels were inevitably replaced by motorized craft. While traditions change with modernization, a maritime legacy endures on Jost Van Dyke and the islanders have a great af“nity with the sea. While all four of the other main inhabited islands of the BVI have air service, little JVD (3.5 square miles) is entirely dependent upon travel by boat for anything„and everything. Endeavour II was designed by a volunteer Canadian naval architect, who based her lines on those of the original vessels, with input from a group of Jost Van Dyke elders who grew up sailing original sloops. In the 1940s, one visitor recalled these unique vessels as odd-looking, beamy little craft, with a great deal of freeboard forward and practically none aft (*see note), which is an accurate description of Endeavour II s design. Tortola boats were also recognizable by their long booms [that extended far beyond the boats transom and] dipped frequently in the water as they rolled along. Endeavour II carries this same unique leg of mutton sail plan. The original Tortola boats, usually planked of native woods (White Cedar), were 18-20ft long and had movable rock ballast. They might be painted with steely-grey U.S. naval paint … when available … or house paint, if that was the only option. In contrast, Endeavour II is 32ft in length and boasts a 6,000lb lead ballast keel (poured on site and created from recycled or salvaged scrap), and is planked with South American Silverballi. The planking is saturated with epoxy resin covered with two layers of “berglass and marine coatings donated by Interlux. Shes also equipped with a 55hp

Most of the original sloops have not survived the intense Caribbean weather conditions. Endeavour II, however, is being built for blue-water sailing and long-term durability while, at the same time, retaining the distinctive lines of the Tortola boat. Construction on Endeavour II has been slow and halting over the last several years due to the economic recession (which slowed charitable-giving globally), the growing pains of a young, non-pro“t organization and the unique complexity of building a modern vessel on a tiny island with no chandlery and few resources. Despite the challenges, JVDPS has continued to advance construction while launching a number of other projects relating to environment and heritage, completing research studies, and working to develop environmental monitoring programs for the island. Once launched, Endeavour II will become the Societys ”oating classroom … providing a platform for the handson marine and coastal ecology activities that the Society has been organizing for local BVI youth over the last three years. Activities include special training opportunities that enable youth to monitor local coral reefs and important marine and coastal habitats. In the past, Virgin Islanders had an intimate relationship and deep knowledge of their natural environment. Imported goods were expensive and hard to come by and, as a Endeavour II line drawings

For example, “shing equipment, pots and line etc., were built of local vines, plants and other natural materials that would quickly decompose at sea when lost. Todays modern “shing gear … often built of plastic and rugged wire … has a damaging effect on the marine environment when not found. Rapid modernization has brought an in”ux of new wealth to the Caribbean. With new prosperity came a rise in imported goods with excessive packaging; all have a negative impact on the natural environment. The Endeavour II project hopes to advance environmental stewardship among BVI youth, building an appreciation for the natural sciences and key biological communities. More importantly, it is hoped Endeavour II will help local youth build an understanding of and appreciation for their grandparents and other generations that came before them. *Bertram, Kate (1948) West Indies … a Five Year Cruise.

Others have planned their Panama Canal transit months or years ahead and there is no doubt in their minds about swapping oceans. Whether you transit the canal on your own boat or as a line handler on someone elses, the adventure is one of a kind. Helping another cruiser through before you make the big leap yourself instills confidence, knowledge and experience. While being a line handler is fun and exciting; captaining your own Motoring into Pedro Miguel Lock amongst the biggest ships in the world

PAGE 45

MAY 2012 ALLATSEA.NET 43vessel through the turbulent and busy locks is more stressful and requires a decent amount of concentration, patience and skills. Most cruisers transiting the canal from the Caribbean start their journey in Shelter Bay Marina. They are measured, the transit is scheduled (depending on the time of year, this can be anywhere from a few days to a few weeks, or you can pay $2800 and transit the next day) and tires and long lines are dropped off the day of departure. These arrangements can also be made at anchor in the uncomfortable Flats or Club Nautico. Whether you use an agent or not is up to you. An of“cial agent makes the process smoother and easier and you dont have to pay the high bond ($800). It is recommended to look around and inquire before choosing an agent. My husband Mark and I joined our friends Axel and Liz on their 40ft aluminum monohull Gudrun V as line handlers. They were very happy with their agent Roy Bravo. The only other formality you need before leaving Colon is a zarpe to Balboa or to your next destination via Balboa. Usually, up to six small yachts a day can start their transit. They anchor at the Flats, where the crew, consisting of the captain and at least four line handlers, await the arrival of the advisor around 16:00. The anchor is lifted and the boats make their way towards Gatun Locks. They are rafted up two or three abreast … if not alone … and enter the “rst of three chambers, where the water level is steadily raised. In a threesome, the captain of the middle boat is in charge and drives the boats through, while the other engines run idle and two line handlers on each side take up the slack. Over the span of about an hour and a half, the boats are raised a total of 85ft and enter Gatun Lake for a nights rest. The following morning a new advisor is expected around 06:30, only in our case, he didnt show up until 12:30, a massive delay. For the next four hours, we had to maintain a speed of seven knots in order to make our 16:30 appointment at the Pedro Miguel lock. Rescheduling is always a possibility, ”exibility a must! We raced a Panamax container ship and managed to sail some of the way, while closely following the many markers. The

44 ALLATSEA.NET MAY 2012 Seamanship & Voyaging surroundings of Gatun Lake are lush and the quite boring muddy stretch of water is livened up with a random crocodile or iguana. Once through Gaillard Cut and under the Centennial Bridge, we made the next lock right on time, alone, and were tied to a side wall. The distance between Pedro Miguel and the last two locks of Mira”ores is one mile and by the time we reached sea level again on the Paci“c side, it was dark. The total transit took about 12 hours and cost $1125. Days after we “nished our Panama Canal transit, the rules changed. Because of a lack of advisors and lower water levels, only three cruising boats a day can go through and delays are longer. If you can make eight knots, you go through in one stretch (15:00 to 03:00), if not, you spend one or two nights in the lake, which is what happened to two of the other cruising boats on our transit day.

46 ALLATSEA.NET MAY 2012 COMMON MEDICAL EMERGENCIES ABOARD RACE BOATS PREVENTION AND TREATMENT BY CAROL M. BAREUTHER Theres nothing like the wind in your hair, sea spray on your face, and that feeling of sheer adrenalinpumping exhilaration when the start gun sounds and youre off racing. Unfortunately, there are downsides to competitive sailing. Boom bangs, sunburn and seasickness, to name a few, can wreak havoc with having fun let alone winning. Heres an overview of some of the most common medical emergencies racing sailors face and tips to treat and even prevent them. We see patients with complaints that vary from sunburn to major trauma,Ž says Jonathan Cornelius, a paramedic and director of Antigua & Barbuda Search and Rescue (ABSAR). Some of our more popular complaints are dehydration, sunburn, rope burns, and “nger injuries. We normally have at least one head trauma per regatta ... remember; its called a boom because thats the sound it makes when it hits your head. If the worst has happened and someone has hit their head, then you should keep them still and call for help. This type of injury needs to be fully immobilized and properly evaluated in order to rule out a potential serious injury.Ž Even apparently minor head injuries may have delayed onset complications, adds Newport, Rhode Islands Dr. Robin Wallace, who is chairman of US Sailings Race Management Committee, an ISAF International Race Of“cer and member of ISAFs Medical Commission. Therefore, careful observation is needed and possibly an emergency room visit after racing.Ž Everything from small bruises to deep cuts requiring stitches are other common injuries, explains Dr. Frits Bus, an avid sailor and general practitioner based in St. Maarten. For the minor bruises and cuts, logically the “rst step is to stop the bleeding by applying pressure and ice, which is often at hand on a boat.Ž Gloves will help minimize rope burns to the hands, adds ABSARs Cornelius. For other injuries perform basic “rst aid and call for help. When in doubt, bandage whats bleeding and splint whats broken.Ž Make sure your “rst aid kit is well stocked,Ž advises ISAFs Wallace. In addition, consider taking a safety at sea An ASBAR doctor sutures a laceration

PAGE 49

MAY 2012 ALLATSEA.NET 47or Red Cross First Aid course.Ž For more serious medical injuries such as a heart attack, says St. Maartens Bus, the treatment is the same as it is on land. CPR (cardio pulmonary resuscitation) should be known by at least one crewmember. It would be useful for everyone to take a CPR course.Ž If problems such as dehydration and hangovers are discovered at the dock,Ž says Pam Fuller, a coordinator for Virgin Islands Search & Rescue (VISAR), in Tortola, BVI, then convince the sailor to stay ashore and recuperate for the day. Nobody can pay adequate attention if they are under the weather, which not only means bad racing, but its also potentially an accident waiting to happen.Ž Prevention is the best medicine when it comes to dehydration, says ISAFs Wallace. Drink plenty of water during racing on hot humid days.Ž PHOTO: ASBAR

PAGE 50

48 ALLATSEA.NET MAY 2012 Common Medical Emergencies Aboard Race Boats is familiar with the deck layout and inform them of any hazards. For example, point out the worst obstacles like low booms when tacking. Practice movements like tacks and gybes in slow motion. Many injuries happen because new crew havent suf“ciently practiced.Ž Carol M. Bareuther, RD, is a St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands based marine writer and registered dietitian. One of the most common causes of dehydration while racing is seasickness. If you are prone to seasickness,Ž says ABSARs Cornelius, make sure you “nd and take appropriate seasickness medication before you begin your day. Try to “nd a nondrowsy type of medication and take it as directed. If you start feeling sick while out, remember the basics. Stay in the fresh air, keep your gaze “xed on a distant point, and keep busy.Ž VISARs Fuller adds, Keep something in your stomach, but minimize greasy foods. A salami and Swiss cheese sandwich isnt the best choice on a rough day. Saltines and Ginger Snaps have saved more than one sailor. A ginger ale or 7Up is often more palatable than water.Ž The optimal method to prevent sunburn is with protection such as appropriate clothing … long sleeves and a wide-brimmed hat, notes avid sailor and Puerto Rico dermatologist, Dr. Roberto Alfonso. As for sunscreens, I recommend the highest SPF available. Sunscreens with a 90 or 100 SPF are available over-the-counter as inexpensive as $8 to $12 a bottle. I personally use Neutrogena or Coppertone, but all of them are good.Ž Finally, says St. Maartens Bus, the best way to prevent medical emergencies while sailing is to have a good crew brie“ng prior to racing. Take time to be sure the crew CPR should be known by at least one crewmember Gloves can protect your hands from minor cuts and rope burn

MAY 2012 ALLATSEA.NET 51 United States Virgin Islands CY THOMPSON TO COMPETE IN 2012 OLY MPICS FOLLOWING IN THE FAMILYS FOOTSTEPS BY CAROL M. BAREUTHER His goal was to achieve the Gold Fleet at the Perth 2011 International Sailing Federation (ISAF) Sailing World Championships, an Olympic quali“er held in Australia last fall. Instead, after three days of racing, the Virgin Islands Cy Thompson made only the Silver Fleet, but that didnt mean he was out of the game in terms of gaining a slot into the 2012 Summer Olympics. With four races left on the last day, he buckled down and posted one top 20 and three top ten scores to “nish 56th overall and successfully earn one of the 36 Olympic berths in the Laser class. My grandfather competed in the 1968 Olympic Games in Mexico in the Flying Dutchman, which is a two-man boat. Both of my parents competed in the 1984 Los Angeles Games in the windsurfer class. Sailing in the Olympics will be ful“lling a dream that I have had for many years. The Games are the pinnacle of dingy sailing and to represent my country is the greatest feeling,Ž says Thompson. Born in 1988, the year fellow native Virgin Islander Peter Holmberg won the Virgin Islands “rst and only Olympic sailing medal, Thompson started skippering a small jury-rigged sailing dinghy at the age of four. He quickly advanced to the Optimist, where he won his “rst national title at age nine, then advanced to Lasers where he gained US and international titles during his high school years. More recently he sailed Lasers and 420s on the highly competitive college sailing scene. At Roger Williams University (RWU), in Providence, Rhode Island, Thompson scored many personal and school “rsts. He won the ICSA Mens Singlehanded National Championships in 2008 after making his “rst Olympic bid in the 49er with fellow VI sailor Anthony Kotoun. The next year he was named RWUs Male Athlete of the Year, and in 2011 helped the Hawks claim the 2011 ICSA Team Racing National Championship. Thompson ended his college career by being named NEISA Sailor of the Year and as the only three-time ICSA All-American athlete in RWUs sailing history. Since graduation, Thompson has campaigned full-time for the Olympics.Why the Laser?I have grown up sailing the Laser and Laser Radial,Ž says Thompson. It is the boat that I have had the most success in. I have the right body type for the Laser. I love the physical aspect involved and it being the most economically friendly Olympic class sailboat made for a great “t.Ž Upcoming, Thompson will sail in the Laser World Championships, in Boltenhagen, Germany, May 4th -10th. Then, he will travel to Medemblik in the Netherlands for the Delta Lloyd Regatta, a World Cup event, and “nally on to the Skandia Sail for Gold Regatta in Weymouth, England, where afterwards he will train until the Olympics open in the same venue on July 16th.What would Thompson recommend for someone whod like to follow in his wake?I would de“nitely recommend “nishing college “rst before starting a campaign, because once you get on the professional circuit you may not want to go back to school. And, whatever you end up doing, just make sure that you put your best foot forward. Never leave anything on the table and remember that you are not only representing yourself, but more importantly your country.Ž Carol M.

Peter Isler, two-time Americas Cup winner, was at the helm of Hanuman The 138ft yacht was last years winner, but had to settle for second place this time. It was the “rst time that Isler had raced a huge superyacht in the Virgin Islands. Apparently the competition has gotten a lot deeper this year, but the boat kept up its tradition of doing very well,Ž Isler said. Three races were held over three days with 13 superyachts competing for this years title. Sailors raced around Virgin Gorda on the “rst two days and on the last day the course included Necker Island and The Dogs. When the owner of P2 Gerhard Andlinger, dedicated his third place win and trophy to his wife Jeanne, tears welled up in his eyes. I thought it was so gallant and so warm. Whenever that sense of gratitude overwhelms him, he gets teary-eyed. I was really touched,Ž Mrs. Andlinger said. Aside from the Finding a place to dock at Virgin Gordas Yacht Club Costa Smeralda (YCCS) on March 14th -17th was not easy. Thats because 26 superyachts and megayachts„most of them more than 100ft long„were tied up for the second annual Loro Piana Caribbean Superyacht Regatta and Rendezvous. One of the smaller boats, Andrea Recordatis Indio took “rst place with two wins and a second-place “nish over the three days of racing around Virgin Gorda.

BROWN As some Caribbean regattas struggle this season, it was encouraging to see the St. Maarten Multihull Regatta continuing to grow and attract sponsors. Although in the shadow of the Heineken Regatta a week later, the event, now in its third year, generated much excitement and earned praise from the participants. Ten multihulls, in two classes, and two beach cats, started the race. Several more beach cats were expected but rough seas and strong winds prevented the boats from St. Barths making it across the channel. The regatta sent Cruising Class (seven boats) and Racing Class (three boats) anticlockwise around the island. Wind conditions were ideal and the trimaran Dauphin Telecom s winning time of 2:37:00 in Racing Class was only 58 seconds short of the around the island record set by Steve Fossetts maxi-cat PlayStation in 2003. Organizers were delighted with a new rating system introduced by Race Of“cer Alfred Koolen and used for the “rst time this year. The system brought the “rst six boats in Cruising Class within 20 minutes of class winner Passion III on corrected time. Strong winds prevented the beach cats from sailing around the island and instead they were given two shorter races, the “rst from Simpson Bay out to Proselyte Reef and the second to Creole Rock and back. Both races were dominated by local duo Bernard Silem and Stephen Looser. We are a low budget regatta with nice sponsors,Ž noted Race Director Mirian Ebbers, who con“rmed that the regatta, the fourth, will return in 2013.

MAY 2012 ALLATSEA.NET 59 St. Barth The 2012 St Barth Bucket got off to a soggy start with a day of pouring rain on Friday March 23rd, but skies were sunny for the rest of the weekend, with great racing conditions for the ”eet. Peter Craig, of Premiere Racing, served as race director with Bucket committee members Ian Craddock and Tim Laughridge lending a hand along with Jim Teeters, who supervised the yacht rating system. A crew of volunteers and the staff of the Port of Gustavia also made sure things ran smoothly for the hundreds of people who came to Saint Barth for the Bucket. With 47 sailboats over 100ft in length … the largest Bucket ”eet to date … organizers decided at the last minute to add a fourth category: Les Mademoiselles des Mers, in addition to Les Grandes Dames des Mers; Les Elegantes des Mers and Les Gazelles des Mers. As a result, the ten yachts designed THIS IS US WINS THE BUCKET LARGEST ST. BARTH FLEET EVER BY ELLEN LAMPERT-GRAUX PHOTOS: ROSEMOND GRAUX by Ed Dubois almost had their own class, with just one Frers yacht joining in. This allowed four boats to win the individual classes: Parsifal III for Les Grandes Dames; Lady B for Les Mademoiselles (also second overall) and Mari-Cha III for Les Gazelles. The 42m Holland Jachtbouw-built, This Is Us topped Les Elegantes.

Cavens, who spoke in both French and English at the awards ceremony (he hails from Belgium) joked that he and his wife had discussed buying a boat or a house in St Tropez, and he was glad they bought the boat. I would like to thank the other 46 boats in the Bucket for their incredible sportsmanship,Ž he said. Captain Robin Winn, who has been with This Is Us for 18 months, added: Every day was fantastic, the Bucket has an amazing setup and gets better every year, they work so hard and there is an amazing ambiance.Ž In addition to the racing awards, the Bucket has a slew of other awards including the Escargot Cup for the slowest boat, which this year went to the 50m Perini Navi, Barracuda (The actual can of snails was not returned by last years winner.) As part of their commitment to the community of Saint Barth, the Bucket traditionally makes a contribution to a worthy island project. This year, they donated 23,500 Euros toward the renovation of a traditional Caribbean house where the islands nuns have lived. This money will help complete the work so they can move back to their home. The Bucket Book: A Celebration of Megayacht Racing was on sale during the regatta. Commissioned by Tim Laughridge and produced by Concepts Publishing, Inc., the book celebrates 25 years of unique mega-yacht competition and features superb images of boats racing in the Bucket Regattas. The book brings the event to life with quotes and reminiscences from yacht owners, crew, sponsors, and Bucket fans. Copies can be ordered on line at the Bucket website. In spite of the rainy start, and a few accidents (one sailor was hospitalized and the largest boat in the ”eet, the 67m Baltic Yacht, Hetairos hit some rocks and had to withdraw), the 2012 Bucket was a fabulous event, especially in terms of safety for such a large ”eet of big boats.

Each have their own character but all with the same sophisticated charm that is expected of the French West Indies. Trois Islet, Anse Mitan and Anse LAne offer a diverse mix of relaxing beaches, lively atmosphere and interesting history. With a regular ferry service back and forth to Fort de France, these bays have opened up and become more accessible. Anse a lAne is the furthest west on the southern side of the bay. It has mostly good holding on a sandy bottom. However, avoid the shoal in the middle of the bay and leave the channel clear for the ferries.

MAY 2012 ALLATSEA.NET 65 Martinique turesque anchorage with a pretty crescent-shaped sandy beach and palm trees. The sleepy seaside resort is a lowkey holiday destination with chalets backing down onto the beach. There are a few restaurants; a couple right on the beach, an 8 Huit store, a fuel station and, a little further back, a fruit and vegetable stall. Dinghies can be left on either docks; keeping clear of the ferries. Anse Mitan though only around the corner, is a striking contrast to the laidback atmosphere of Anse a LAne. The chic and the beautiful hang out at Pointe Du Bout, is one of Martiniques most developed holiday resorts. In parts a little rough around the edges, dont let this deter you. The clear water in the anchorage has variable holding but is good in sand. There are various buoys marking channels and swimming areas, leave the ferry channel clear, as well as the swimming area off Anse Mitan beach. Dinghies can be left inside the ferry dock though be aware that at weekends … and after school … kids jump in and out of the dinghies and tug on the engine pull cords. Another area to leave your dinghy is on the ”oating dock in the “rst of the man-made breakwaters north of the abandoned Bakoua marina. Ashore you can clear customs easily in the of“ce at the Pointe Du Bout marina. There are many “ne restaurants and cafes right on the marina front and on the road leading to Anse Mitan Beach … including those in Creole Village … that will easily satisfy those of an epicurean nature. You will “nd the ubiquitous 8 Huit for grocery shopping and a couple of “ne boulangeries. There are plenty of car rental places, dive shops and a laundry service. Throw into the mix a good selection of classy boutiques and up market tourist shops in quaint pastel-colored buildings. The derelict hotel at the end of the Ponite du Bout conjures images of a hedonistic past but is now in ruins. All is not lost as the man-made pools surrounding this area are popular spots for snorkeling and sunbathing. There is reasonably good snorkeling to be found off Pointe du Bout, and by the isolated danger mark in the bay, just make sure you are aware of jet skis whizzing by. Trois Islet: For something a little different or if you need to “nd shelter from a northwest swell, Trois Islet is a quiet place to hang out for a few days. Despite being open to the northeast, the holding is great and there are plenty of places you can tuck into between the islands and the shoals. Just be conscious of the shallow areas when anchoring and once again keep the ferry approach clear. Dinghies can be left inside the ferry dock on the well-maintained waterfront. The anchorage at Anse Mitan

A boulangerie/ patisserie offering fresh baguettes and pastries lies just around the corner. Take a walk to the state owned Forest of Vatable about a mile or so out of town to the east. A little further, but within (long) walking distance, is a sugar cane museum in the remains of an old sugar re“nery. About two miles west of town is Musee de la Pagerie, which is dedicated to the countries colonial history and to Empress Josephine, Napoleons wife.

The “eld narrowed quickly to six teams and then the “nal two, Green Dragon and Team Horizon who faced off for the Finals. Spirits ran high and the whole atmosphere sizzled with excitement as spectators cheered on their favorites from a barge that Le Phare Bleu set up as a viewing platform.

We didnt have any prior match racing experience, but plenty of sailing and racing experience. We hope to do more match racing and will be trying to get more of this type of racing on the Grenada calendar.Ž The match racing was followed by two days of regular ”eet racing. On Saturday yachts, divided into two cruising classes and a fun class, took their start for the North South Wines Veuve Clicquot Cup, which was won overall by Richard Szyjan aboard his Hobie 33, Category 5 The weather was consistently bad with a steady 28 knots plus in the squalls,Ž explains Szyjan, whose boat is actually 32ft in length … and fast … thanks to Szyjans modi“cations which included cutting the cockpit almost to the mast, Jason Fletcher and Apero overall winner of the Westerhall Twelve Degrees Cup

BAREUTHER Challenging conditions with winds swinging from four to nearly 20 knots out of the west, east and then north, created keen competition for the 21 boats taking part in the Trinidad and Tobago Sailing Associations (TTSA) Trinidad Carnival Regatta, held out of Harts Cut, Chaguaramas, in February. This regatta, now in its second year, replaces the well-known Tobago Angostura Regatta. Rivalry in the Racing Class was particularly intense. In the end, points leader Norman Da Costas Soverel 42, CMos was penalized for an infraction in the penultimate race which resulted in Peter Morris Frers 43, Jaguar earning the class title. Morris explains that, in addition to excellent sailing by the crew, Jaguar s success was due to a few signi“cant changes. Ballast was added internally to ensure she sailed her full waterline length, new Doyle sails have a beautiful shape and the mast was recently given a total overhaul and Trinidad and Tobago Sailing Association Pirate Cooler fete a fund raiser for the sailing school and the main event for the Trinidad Carnival Regatta Melges 24 Class on the downwind leg (from left) Drunken Monkey and Wasabi

72 ALLATSEA.NET MAY 2012 Curaao CURAAO TO HOST 5.5 METRE WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPSEXCITING SAILING IN THE SOUTHIMAGE COURTESY OF THE CURAAO 5.5 METRE CLASS ASSOCIATION The Curacao 5.5 Metre Class Association will host the Class World Championships January 28th to February 1st 2013. In a press release, the association said spectators would be welcome and able to view this exciting regatta as it takes place on the waters in front of the Curacao Hyatt Regency Hotel. Its estimated that over 800 5.5 Metre Class boats have been built over the years and they fall into three categories: Classic, Evolution and Modern. Although Metre boats are not identical they are built strictly within the Class Rating Rules. The ”eet making up the Classic Division was built between 1949 and 1969; the number of boats built during this period was about 650. Not all the boats in this division made it into the 21st century but some of those still sailing have found a new lease of life and are again taking part in World Championships. The Evolution Division includes boats whose original measuring certi“cate must be dated between January 1st 1970 and December 31st 1993. The hull is a radical change from a Classic boat, it is less deep and the wetted surface is drastically reduced. The rudder is separated from the keel. For shear excitement, sailors extol the virtues of the Modern Division. The current World Champion said: Having sailed a lot of different sailing boats in my life the 5.5 Metre is probably the best of them all. All the sailors in the class are fantastic people. The speed is more or less the same in all the modern boats. What makes the difference is trimming the boats, something you do constantly to keep up speed. The boat is also very tactical and sensitive to how you steer and maneuver. This is how it should beŽ Other racers agree and note that when sailing these boats you must be at the top of your game if you want to stay in the hunt for a podium “nish.

On the M/Y Antares chef Roz used a 15lb Prime Rib, I usually use around a 7lb. No matter what weight the prime rib, this is the only sure “re method. No other type of roast will do. Prep time: 10 minutes. Sitting time: maybe two hours. Cooking time: 5-6 hours. Resting time: 20 minutes. Serves: 12-14 7lb Prime Rib Roast Salt and pepper Potatoes Preheat oven to 350F. Bring rib roast to room temperature (this is very important). Pat dry and season with salt and pepper. Place in oven at 1 oclock in the afternoon, bake exactly one hour. (Foil wrap the potatoes and put them in at the same time). Turn OFF the oven and do NOT open all afternoon. 1-1/4 hours before dinner, turn oven ON again to 350F. After 3/4 hour take roast (and potatoes) out of oven and let roast sit for 20 to 30 minutes (also very important) before carving. This cooking method works on any size Prime Rib Roast and will always come out medium-rare. NOTE: When purchasing the rib roast closest to the loin is more tender than the rib roast nearest the chuck.
