6 ALLATSEA.NET JUNE 2012 Editors Log Seafarers are a superstitious lot. I found this out when I earned my living on a “shing boat. My “shing partner was a superstitious freak. At times he made me laugh and at other times he scared me half to death. One day, we were making our way down to the boat to pull our crab pots when he saw a priest, and that was that, he wouldnt go to sea that day. Another time we were walking along the shore in thick fog when I told him I could hear a bell out to sea. He stopped walking and grabbed my arm. A bell,Ž he said, I dont hear it. Whats it sound like?Ž It sounds like a bell on a sea-buoy,Ž I said. There are no sea-buoys out there,Ž he squeaked, it means someones going to die ƒŽ There was no “shing that day, either. One argument we had (of many) was over the color we should paint the boat. I suggested dark green. I thought my partner was going to hit me. Dark green is the most unlucky color on a boat,Ž he bawled. What about the New England “shing boats?Ž Lots of them are dark green,Ž I protested. Idiots,Ž he replied. Things came to a head when I went sailing with him. We were taking part in a race in the English Channel. I didnt know much about racing back then and I thought we were doing rather well. My “shing partner said our performance was abysmal, although those were not the words he used, and blamed our bad luck on the fact we had two women onboard. Shortly after this discussion, the wind died and we found ourselves becalmed. My buddy called me to the foredeck out of earshot of the crew. He told me he knew how to evoke the wind, and I thought he was going to suggest we throw the women overboard. But it was worse than that, he asked me for money. Im a Yorkshire man and very careful with my cash, but I thought I had better humor him. I pulled my wallet out of my pocket and he produced a shilling out of his. I had no change but his eyes lit up when he saw a ten pound note hanging out of my billfold. Without asking, he grabbed the note and before I could stop him, wrapped it around the shilling and threw it as far into the sea as he could. What the ƒŽ I sputtered. Buying wind from the direction I tossed the cash,Ž he said. I went below to sulk. Fifteen minutes later the wind came up, ten pounds one Gary E. Brown, Editor ITS SUPERSTITION ... NO, ITS TR ADITIONshillings worth, strong, steady and from the right direction. We went on to win our class and there was much talk at the yacht club about how we were the only yacht that found wind. My “shing partner later married one of the girls on the crew and went off to live in Maine. The last I heard he had bought a lobster boat and 30 gallons of paint. Twenty-“ve years ago this month Teddy Seymour returned to the island of St. Croix thus becoming the “rst AfricanAmerican man to sail solo around the world (page 55). Its also about 25 years ago that I “rst washed up in the islands. Back then you rarely saw Caribbean people out on the water. And even today there are nowhere near enough islanders involved in yachting. It is changing as more local youngsters take up the sport of sailing and follow careers in the marine industry. For years yachting in the islands was looked on as being rather exclusive and we honor sailors like Teddy Seymour for showing the way. PHOTO: NOAA

16 ALLATSEA.NET JUNE 2012CARIBBEAN RADIO AND AUDIO LOWLIFES BY CAPN FATTY GOODLANDERSailing Humor Many things have changed in the Caribbean since I “rst tacked into these gin-clear waters in the 70s„but one thing has remained constant: the Caribbean is still a sunny place for shady people. The marine community of the Lesser Antilles is primarily (if not exclusively) composed of maladjusted maritime mis“ts, wonderful waterfront wackos, and colorful Caribbean characters. Actually, thats putting too good a spin on it„like Im writing PR copy for the Rotary or something. Lets put it another way. There was a normal person here once„but we deported him. (I forget the of“cial charge: lack of drugs, failure to drink, or something socially frowned upon.) So it is hard, at this low level of criteria, to select any particular cultural culprit for special condemnation. But, hey, since Im a professional journalist I will eagerly rush in where wise men fear to tread. Capn Fatty and the editor in the Island 92 studio … A sunny place for shady people There are certain people who, audio-wise, sound like they are wise, sincere, and honest„despite all evidence to the contrary. If these people are attractive, they usually become gigolos or television personalities. If they are unattractive, if they have a tendency to pick their nose, and/or if they have personal hygiene issues„they drift toward radio. Thats how I got involved with Radio One WVWI. I “t into all three categories„and then some. (The good news: I break wind silently. The bad news: this often empties small, con“ned, airless broadcast studios.) ƒ hey, Im just saying. Flatulence is a real issue in the audio world. (Im sure Ed Morrow, Paul Harvey, and such legendary anchormen as Walter Cronkite bowel-trained themselves on stealth mode.) Or, to rephrase it, thank gosh technology hasnt progressed to radios with olfactory capabilities. Many of the more ripe radio personalities would have to resign immediately.


JUNE 2012 ALLATSEA.NET 17Anyway, Nicky Russell (aka Mighty Whitey) was my “rst radio role model. He was a morning DJ at WVWI on St. Thomas„and one of the most outrageous, lit-up, freewheeling men Ive ever met. Oh, things were different back in the 80s. It was almost impossible to get “red for on-air drunkenness back then„primarily because everyone else in the studio (including the owner) was completely pie-eyed by noon. Nicky ran on many different types of heavy fuel. Hed often say stuff like, ƒ Ill sleep on Wednesday night,Ž on Monday morning. Id party with him at Bottoms Up (at Independent Boat Yard on St. Thomas) until sunrise, and then crash„while he showered, coffee-ed up, and then ”awlessly did his popular 6 to 10am prime drive-time morning show. The man was an animal„in the best sense of the word. Jim Pettigrew was another radio dude I learned from. We sailed together on the infamous Stormy Weather during many Antigua Sailing Weeks. Together, we also wrote scripts for the David Sanborn Jazz Hour on CBS radio. A typical snippet went like this: Im David Sanborn, and youre listening to the David Sanborn Hour!Ž If we didnt specify, David would get confused on such technical details as ƒ well, his name, for instance. Once I realized that radio was a goofy medium-withoutcontent„I knew Id rise to the top with the cream. My Radio Ones Marine Report with Capn Fatty Goodlander was a “xture on the airwaves of the Lesser Antilles for over 17 bizarre years. Once, I was nearly “red for audio urination during a mock, on-air USCG random drug test. Another time I took a sip of my microphone and thrust the neck of my Hennie bottle in the startled face of Governor Alexander Farrelly. Yes, covering carnival live in the VI is different than, say, covering Macys Thanksgiving Day Parade in NYC. Here comes a mocko-jumbie with three legs,Ž I calmly reported as a fella strolled by playing not with an instrument ƒ and not to the crowd ƒ just playing, well, with himself. Ive always had a problem remembering peoples names„so, just before wed go live on air, Id take out my pen to write up name tags, and (cleverly, cleverly„since I had no idea of the name of the guest Id just ”attered into showing up) say, ƒ and how do you spell your name?Ž One fella said, I spell my name B-O-B, Fatty. How do you spell Bob?Ž Smart ass. One of my guests had an anxiety attack within seconds of opening her mouth. She slid to the ”oor with a look of horri“ed amazement on her bloated face, turned around, and


18 ALLATSEA.NET JUNE 2012slowly crawled out of the studio ƒ as if the radio listeners would not be able to see her if she was on all-fours. Strange. I covered the Rolex and Hennie Regattas live, on-thewater for many years„which is far more dif“cult than, say, reporting on paint drying or grass growing. ƒ my “rst live telephone call-in was from an addled West Indian fellow who belligerently demanded to know what my position on ƒ homosexual postal inspectorsŽ was. I remember my air-time with Bulldog of Sint Maarten with great fondness. Id do four hours at a stretch with him„trying to teach him his port from his starboard hand„all to no avail, of course. ƒ when it came to playing dumb, well, Bulldog was a natural. Damn, that dude was believable! ƒ convinced everyone. ƒ even his wife and child. All of which led me to NPR„and a summer series of sea gypsy reports on The Weekend Edition. Ill never forget getting a call from Lianne Hansen that began with, ƒthe good news, Fatty, is that not all of our 20 million listeners called in to complain about your latest Sea Gypsy segment ƒ only a million or two, actually.Ž My National Public Radio career was over long before most listeners realized I was attempting to be funny. ƒ could have fooled me,Ž was the gloomy consensus. ƒ those were not driveway moments,Ž I was briskly informed when I got the pink slip. Of course, in order to sail around the word, I had to get someone to take over my long-running WVWI St. Thomas show, someone whose gullibility was only exceeded by their loyalty. Thus I invited St. Thomas Yacht Club racer Wally Boswick on the show, and said, ƒ “ll in while I take a leak.Ž When I returned “ve years later from my “rst circumnavigation, he was still at it„bless his faithful heart. Which brings us to Gary Brown and his Drive Live program on Island 92, 91.9fm Sint Maarten. Gary is my kind of guy„a novelist, a transatlantic sailor, and a starving journalist so hard up for cash that he works for this “sh-wrapper as well. I love how hes succeeded in radio despite his weird accent„actually, he claims to be speaking some variant of English! Weve done dozens of interviews together over the decades„switching host/guest roles at random. Recently„on Wednesday April 18th„we sat down in the plush studios (well, if you consider cof“n-sized sound-proof rooms plush) of Island 92 for a lazy half hour of pro-yakking. The interview went something like, Would you care to ”og your book?Ž Certainly, but only if youll ”og yours too!Ž Professional writers are like this. Of course, Gary and I couldnt gam long„this being primarily a dirt-dwellers music show, and all. Tell us about the last 52 years of living aboard,Ž Gary would ask, and Id say, Well, Gary ƒ and hed interrupt with, ƒ excellent! AND NOW, A MESSAGE FROM OUR SPONSOR!Ž I understand. I like Heavy Metal too. And I also dont want the phone lines lit up by pissed-off ex-hippies complaining they dont have a loud, bass-driven soundtrack to commit suicide to ƒ and who is this Capn Flabby guy, anyway?Ž Of course, we writers have to be media whores if we want to sell books. And, it is gratifying to get feedback. The day after I did the Sint Maarten show with Gary„I just happened to be pushing an old crippled lady in the Simpson Bay Lagoon with my oar as we fought for an open dinghy slot at the Budget Marine dock„a Fat Head* groupie (*the name of my small-and-shrinking fan club) approached and said, Hey, dude! I just heard you on the radio ƒ on Garys show! Thats cool, mon. I mean, Ive never met anyone who has, you know, been circumcised twice!Ž It is hearing-impaired lubbers like that who make me want to sail around the world for a third time! But you have to be careful while on-the-air in a radio studio. Loose lips sink ships. It is easy to be misunderstood. For instance, once I was asked what I disliked about Americans, and I foolishly responded, the white ones and the black ones.Ž Not PC. Nor smart. And who wants the honor of having both the KKK and the NAACP vying to lynch you„no matter how equal-opportunity that might be? But what I really like best about Caribbean radio„and, well, the whole social fabric of the rain-bowed Caribbean for that matter„is its amazing social tolerance. Its a crazy, mixed up, polyglot place. Laughter is a universal language. So are smiles. We like to laugh: with others and at ourselves. Which is why were still, after all these years, a Sunny Place for Shady People. Editors note: Capn Fatty is currently experiencing post traumatic stress syndrome from having yet another dream boat deal slip through his “ngers. Carolyn reports that he is making progress, and, hopefully, will soon be able to wear jackets without tied arms. Capn Fatty Goodlander has lived aboard for 52 of his 60 years, and has circumnavigated twice. He is the author of Chasing the Horizon and numerous other marine books; his latest, Buy, Out“t, and Sail is out now. Visit: fattygoodlander.com Sailing Humor


20 ALLATSEA.NET JUNE 2012 Sailing Humor BY JULIAN PUTLEY GRAPHICS BY HANNAH WELCH Were going to have conch for dinner,Ž exclaimed the very independently-minded young guest. Look, Ive collected a pile over there on the beach.Ž We were anchored on a 50ft monohull just a couple of hundred feet from the shore. Okay,Ž said Charlie, apprehensively, youll need to clean them, slice them and tenderize them before you cook them.Ž Charlie was not a fan of conch. In his opinion the taste was not enticing, the texture rubbery and the resulting conch fritters (the dish of choice by most tourists) were deep fried balls of dough with bits of conch mixed in. They were designed to stop your heart pumping. The excited 16-year-old grabbed a bucket and some tools, jumped into the dinghy, and headed to the beach. After half an hour, Charlie glanced over to the sandy spot where the likely lad was now attempting to smash the conch into submission with a large rock. He was covered in bits of shell, various and sundry conch body parts and gelatinous dribbly bits. He stopped every few seconds to swat the ever increasing swarm of biting insects. Charlie took pity on the hapless youth. He swam over to the beach, showed the intrepid food gatherer how to make a slit in the shell to cut the muscle to extract the doubtful gastropod and then instructed him how to remove the inedible bits and clean off the jelly that adheres to it like, well, something sticks to a blanket. An hour later the youth arrived back at the boat covered in red blotches from insect bites. He was carrying several lumps of slimy, multi-colored meat covered in a combination of sand and mucous, Mum,Ž he called out, Ive brought dinner.Ž He plunked it down on the counter and said, Charlie, do you know which the edible sea urchins are? I saw a few over by the rocks. Perhaps we could try some for hors doeuvres.Ž Charlie sighed inwardly but put on a brave face. The edible ones are the white ones with short spines. Theres about a teaspoonful of yellow roe on the inside of the shell. Youll need a bucketful for four people.Ž I heard it tastes like caviar. Ill pick up plenty so that you can have the biggest portion.Ž Oh, the kid has a heart of gold,Ž thought Charlie with a groan, de“nitely a dangerous thing in a 16-year-old. Another hour passed and then the dinghy approached and our valiant adventurer handed Charlie the bucket. It contained some orange substance ”oating in a mixture of dirty water, shell fragments and brownish shell“sh intestines. Charlie had seen vomit look more appetizing. Nice score,Ž he said to the smiling lad. At 6pm Charlie announced to the family that he was going ashore to visit friends. Dont wait up,Ž he shouted as he sped away in the dinghy.

There were numerous “sh on the horizon as the 11 boat St. Croix ”eet cast off to “sh, with the bite turning hot as the day progressed with nine boats ultimately bringing back a total of 21 dolphin to weigh in at Green Cay Marina. Largest by far was the 52.8lb dolphin landed by angler Bill Flynn aboard the boat, Maragata This whopper was just 1.2lb shy of the GHFC dolphin record of 54lb. Weigh-in was de“nitely the most exciting part of the day for the teams aboard C-Hunter a 55ft Hatteras captained by Festus Pemberton, and Living the Dream a 65ft Hatteras with Austin Schneider at the helm. We ran southeast and found a school of dolphin every time we saw birds,Ž says C-Hunter s Pemberton. We ended up with four nice sized mahi for the day.Ž MeanwhileŽ, says Living the Dream s Schneider, we headed Northeast of Buck Island and followed the birds.

24 ALLATSEA.NET JUNE 2012 Seamanship & Voyaging In June 2011 All At Sea published a remarkable front cover: an aerial shot of the ocean-going raft An-Tiki as she approached St. Maarten after a 2000 mile voyage from the Canary Islands. The rafts arrival caused a media storm. In April, An-Tiki left Sint Maarten to continue her voyage to Eleuthera in the Bahamas. I was onboard the boat that towed the raft out to sea and watched as the crew of adventurers, led by 86-year-old Anthony Smith, hoisted the single square-sail and sailed off to the north. People have asked why An-Tiki s arrival in St. Maarten generated such world-wide media attention. Well, here was a crew taking on the mighty Atlantic in a frail-looking craft. They were using the voyage to draw attention to the water crisis facing much of the Third World and to raise funds for the charity WaterAid. As if that wasnt enough, the crew was led by a slightly eccentric octogenarian who, like Antarctic explorer Sir Earnest Shackleton, found a crew to sail with him by placing an ad in a newspaper. Once the fuss surrounding the rafts arrival died down, Smith and his crew dispersed and An-Tiki spent a year in the Simpson Bay Lagoon. On his return„with a new and untried crew„ Smith found the raft in good condition, although there was some work to be done. Members of the St. Maarten business community rallied to the cause. AnTiki was hauled out by the Krause Sea Lift at St. Maarten Shipyard for maintenance and repairs. Haul out and repairs were donated by the yard along with free dockage, water and electricity etc., up to the day of departure. While the raft was in the yard, David Hilldred, her skipper from the Atlantic voyage, ”ew in from Tortola. He inspected the raft and pronounced her “t for sea. During the same week, Budget Marine presented Smith with a 40hp outboard motor in honor of his 86th birthday. The outboard would be an additional safeguard when the raft approached the rocks and cays of The Bahamas. The rafts navigation and communications equipment was serviced an upgraded and on Thursday April 5th, the night before departure, An-Tiki was tied to the dock at the St. Maarten Yacht Club where they held a farewell party and the raft went on display to the public. The crew joining Smith for the voyage to Eleuthera was very different to the one that crossed the Atlantic. On the RAFT ANTIKI COMPLETES VOYAGE CANARIES ISLANDS SINT MAARTEN ELEUTHERA BY GARY E.

Also crewing was camerawoman Alison Porteous, a friend of Smiths for over 30-years. Porteous, who owns and operates a hotel on Bulago Island in Lake Victoria, Uganda, spent many years as a camerawoman “lming the wars in Africa. Filming the raft from the towboat, I asked Porteous if she was worried about the voyage. No,Ž she replied, I dont have a problem with fear. Anthony invited me by E-mail and I replied yes, yes, Ill be there. I love “lming and I feel this is a nice return to that old career.Ž Porteous says she is also writing a novel based on her experiences on the raft. Nigel Gallaher was rather more apprehensive yet claimed he and his wife were looking forward to the challenge. We the think the voyage is potentially dangerous but we are getting older and how often does one have a chance like this. This is an opportunity we cannot possibly pass up,Ž he said. For Smith, the voyage is more than an adventure. Smith is the author of over 30 books, including Survived, in which he wrote a vivid account of two sailors who survived 70 days at sea in a jolly boat (life boat) after their merchant ship was torpedoed in 1940. The two sailors eventually landed on a beach on the island of Eleuthera„ An-Tiki s destination. Editors note: As the magazine went to press, An-Tiki had landed in Eleuthera.

26 ALLATSEA.NET JUNE 2012 The dangers on the weather side of Martinique never bothered Donald Street. Before charts were drawn„and while he was drawing them„Street navigated and explored the windward coast of the French island in his engineless yawl Iolaire With Street in mind and Iolaire s namesake charts on the navigation table, I set out from Roseau, Dominica, with friend Shanon Richards and her parents aboard the 44ft Lagoon catamaran Cajou II My intention was not to explore inside the windward reefs, as Street recommends, but rather to sail past the island, keeping in the trades and out of the wind shadow. Shanons parents were non-sailors and I did not intend to give them a motorboat ride. The trades were far enough north of east to allow us to lay a course clear to windward of Basse Pointe and sneak out into the Martinique channel without tacking.

JUNE 2012 ALLATSEA.NET 27 By nature I am a monohull sailor, but over the course of three months Id learned to coax some enjoyable sailing out of what amounted to me as nothing more than a stable SCUBA diving platform (and for which it was most often used that year). Shanon and I took turns at the watch. Her father remained awake for the duration, excited, and fortified with a cooler of Kubili. Closehauled, we made nine knots. Offshore and sailing south fast, the Phare de la Caravelle ”ashing intermittently behind the jib, we eased sheets and fell onto a beam reach in boisterous seas. On that moonless night, the stars above were brighter than the scattered lights of civilization on the island. Cajou II crashed and slammed, shuddering when each crest exploded into the bridgedeck and losing her balance as the waves lifted first one hull and then the other. We were pushing twelve knots. The hissing wake sang in concert with the buzzing inside my head from a large pot of coffee. I spent my watches staring at the streaming wake disappearing into the blackness beyond the range of the stern light. An endless pattern of light and sound, never repeating itself, invoking a kind of runners high, the sort of feeling that no drug or taste of alcohol could ever replicate, one which you understand and welcome as it happens an in-the-moment berconsciousness only possible through a combination of natural beauty, deafening silence, lack of sleep and a dark night with no horizons. Once comfortably south, we turned west and jibed, angling as close to the reef as we dared in the dark, avoiding the shallows surrounding Ilet Cabrits. Overnight Cajou II had sailed too fast, and we were early, arriving off Grand Anse des la Salines before the dawn, bounding down wind and wave. We dropped all sail in the lee of Anse Caritan and maneuvered under power in the snaking channel, dropping the hook south of Boulevard Allegre and cracking a beer to await the dawn. As the sun slowly illuminated the east side of the island I was shocked at the number of boats we shared the harbor with, and at the intricacies of the entrance channel, which, had I known better, I might not have attempted in the dark. Shanons mom and dad returned to their home in Dominica on the ferry the next day, and we boarded another cat that we delivered north back to St. Martin 24-hours later. Again we went to windward, and were rewarded with the Trades and the starry night, attempting to return to that ephemeral moment once more.

JUNE 2012 ALLATSEA.NET 29 Round-the-buoy and round-the-islands, long races and short, the 41st BVI Spring Regatta & Sailing Festival offered something for everyone and solidi“ed its reputation as one of the Caribbean regattas with the best racing. Thats no mean feat considering that this years three-day main event BVI Spring Regatta (BVISR) boasted 90 yachts in 12 classes. Yachts ranged in size from IC24s to an 80ft Maxi, monohulls and multihulls, plus racing, cruising and bareboat classes. The BVI Spring Regatta was even more important to us this year because two other regattas we always race in were canceled,Ž says St. Thomas Paul Davis, who drives his J/27, Magni“cent 7 referring to the cancellation of both the St. Croix International Regatta and Puerto Rico Heineken Regatta. But Ill tell you, to bullet in a 13-boat class was pretty spectacular. We did that on the second day in spite of blowing our number one chute to shreds on the downwind and having to do a 360 because of a near collision with Otra Kosa In spite of that, we won by 50 seconds in a four-hour race. We like windward-leewards, but course racing is awesomeŽ The mix of yacht makes and models competing this year meant that some favored windward-leeward courses while others excelled in courses with lots of reaching legs. Its a problem the race committee handled astutely by offering both a combination as well as several races. In fact, the racing classes “nished between seven and nine races for the regatta … and there were 14 run for the one-design IC-24 Class. We sailed six windward-leeward races the “rst day,Ž says St. Maartens Frits Bus, class winner on Coors Light While I prefer windward-leewards, we had a lot of fun course racing to the Willy T on the second day. Its a tradition in the class that I hope continues.Ž St. Croixs Stan Joines, sharing driving duties with Tony Sanpere at the helm of his J/35, Cayennita Grande also enjoyed the round-the-islands type of racing. Its great to sail by the bluffs, play the headwinds, slide off the swell and feel the spray in your face,Ž says Joines. Nothing stays the same in course racing because of how the wind and currents bend around the islands. It takes a lot of team work to win and for my students who were crewing, it teaches meteorology, oceanography, geography, and, because we won, what the taste of success feels like!Ž Those helming the sleek racing machines as well as the bareboats reveled in the inter-island racing. Trinidads Peter Peake, helming his Reichel Pugh 37, Slippery says the race over to Sandy Cay on the second day was spectacular.Ž Meanwhile, fellow Trinidadian sailor, Peter Bailee, who left his Henderson 35, Enzyme at home and jumped aboard a Moorings 515 bareboat, dubbed Sexy and We Know It with Moko Jumbies on the beach at the BVISR Village Puerto Ricos Jaime Torres and his Beneteau First 40 Smile and Wave in the center of the pack


30 ALLATSEA.NET JUNE 2012 Racing Circuit friends, also had a blast racing around the islands. It was certainly a lot simpler for me as the tactician,Ž says Bailee. That meant I could sit on the rail and enjoy.Ž Perhaps the class that best showed the competitiveness of a mix of courses among hot racing teams was Spinnaker Racing Class 3. There was a battle royal to the “nish between Puerto Ricos Jaime Torres and his Beneteau First 40, Smile and Wave and the USAs Richard Wesslands J/120, El Ocaso On the last day of racing, conditions were lighter and shiftier than usual in the Sir Frances Drake Channel. The race committee ran three short windward-leeward races for Class 3, a set-up in which Smile and Wave reveled. We “nally had the kind of grand prix courses that our crew enjoys the most,Ž says Smile and Wave s mainsheet trimmer, Alan Block. With tons of action, highly tactical legs, and just as much thinking as there was doing, we couldnt have asked for a better day.Ž The “nal race also showed that the asymmetric spinnaker boats like the winning El Ocaso were plenty competitive on the conventional race courses, and not just the less tactical reaching-speci“c races. All week the racing was tight between El Ocaso and us, and they caught us in the “nal race by reaching up to a nice wind line and riding it down to the “nish,Ž says Smile and Wave s Torres. The bottom line, though, is that were in the beautiful British Virgin Islands, racing sailboats, in ideal conditions.

This breadth and depth of ”eet is what makes the IRR one-of-a-kind. Its one of only two Caribbean regattas to boast an IRC-rated class, welcome participants from as far away as Monaco and Russia, include a strong beach cat class, invite all-girls teams to race, and accept crews ranging from winning Americas Cup helmsmen to inexperienced high-schoolers. A world-class ”eet of nine IRC-rated yachts competed this year. The high point was a win by the Cayman Islands Peter Cunninghams TP 52, PowerPlay The low point was the “rst days dismasting of Monacos Lord Irvine Laidlaws Reichel-Pugh 52, Highland Fling XII It was very sad and unfortunate,Ž says St. Thomas Americas Cup sailor and Highland Flings tactician, Peter Holmberg. He added, We were super excited for this event.Ž The mast came crashing down minutes into the “rst race just before the “rst mark when the crew furled the big reaching jib. While dropping it, the jib got caught up in the rig, breaking the lower spreader and causing the mast to fall over, taking the boat out of the regatta and the season. Another key player this year was Detroit, Michigans Bill Alcott, who brought down his STP 65, Equation known previously as Rosebud We took delivery of the boat last May,Ž says tactician, Stu Argo. Sailing here against a couple of well-sailed 52s offered us a good opportunity to improve.Ž While Equation didnt earn a podium “nish this year, ending fourth, owner Alcott, whos been racing in the IRR since the 1980s, was awarded the Commodores Trophy for perennially inviting up-and-coming junior sailors to crew. One of these is Cy Thompson, who has already secured a spot for the 2012 Summer Olympics in the Laser Class. This years IRR welcomed its “rst team of sailors from Russia. Weve sailed in Italy, Croatia and Greece and like to visit new places,Ž says Dmitry Gornyy, crewmember aboard the chartered X-65, Karuba 5 which raced in the IRC Class.

We werent used to the strong winds here in the Caribbean. We did like the sun, the warm and the parties,Ž says Gornyy. Ten beach cats crossed the start line, making it one of the biggest Rolex cat classes in years. The winner, Puerto Ricos Jorge Ramos, aboard his Hobie 16, Universal says he came to the regatta for one reason and that was to defend our title from last year.Ž Others jumped into the beach cat class for other reasons. Its fun,Ž says St. Thomas John Holmberg, a former Prindle 19 National Champion, who has sailed the IRR in keelboats for the past few years and who “nished second this year aboard his Hobie 16, Time Out Holmbergs crew, 14-year-old Naomi Lang, added, Theyre fast.

36 ALLATSEA.NET JUNE 2012 Diving As stated in Underwater Photography Part One, many an underwater photographer gives up and sells his gear because lack of buoyancy control makes the endeavor too stressful and unrewarding. There is, however, another reason one “nds so much underwater photo gear for sale on the internet ƒ the lack of proper care and feeding. Before we review the gear, it is critical to understand the commitment required to maintain gear in order to prevent expensive repairs or total destruction. With each dive, disaster looms when ignorance prevails. First and foremost, underwater photo gear is not designed for combat situations. It is delicate and requires gentle hands. No matter the construction of the camera housing, it is not meant to be thrown onto a dive platform, banged and bounced around on a boat, nor dragged through rocks and sand. UNDERWATER PHOTOGRAPHY PART TWOCARE AND FEEDING OF UNDERWATER PHOTO GEARBY BECKY A. BAUER Sea Fan shot with wide angle lensPHOTO: BECKY A. BAUER


JUNE 2012 ALLATSEA.NET 37I knew an alleged professional underwater photographer whose employer paid tens of thousands of dollars for repairs and new equipment simply because the photographer never cleaned the gear, tossed it around like a rubber ball, and left it baking in the sun. A good dive operator who understands underwater photography will have a gear area dedicated to photographers. It should be an area, hopefully a table with extended sides and a padded top, under shade, where photographers can prepare for their next dives. No one should be allowed to use the table for rummaging through gear bags, setting up tanks, or rearranging weight belts and pockets. The table should be off limits to anyone but photographers and that should be made clear before the boat leaves the dock or divers make their way from the dive shop to the beach. The operator should have a means of rinsing and, preferably, soaking underwater housings in fresh water and that water should be changed frequently. If there is no means of rinsing or soaking the housings, they should be wrapped in wet towels under shade. When beach diving without an operator, spend a few dollars for a couple of gallons of fresh water and take along a bucket for initial rinsing of the gear. Never let salt water dry on camera housings and never leave the housings exposed to direct sunlight. Due to the temperature changes between depth and surface as well as heat generated by the cameras, condensation builds up inside the housings creating a very humid environment for the cameras and they soon cease to function. Water is an underwater photographers best friend and worst enemy, especially salt water. Salt is corrosive and, when dried, leaves a “lm on lens ports and eventually corrodes hinges, locks, and buttons to the point they permanently weld themselves together. One drop of water inside a housing can render an expensive camera useless. Underwater camera gear should be prepared and tested for the “rst dive of the day before the photographer boards the boat or leaves the shore. Set up the camera in a dry environment, install fresh batteries, test the cam!!! "# $ ! "#" $"#

Then, seat the camera in the housing, make sure the housing is locked correctly, and submerge the housing in a deep vessel of water and look for bubbles around the seals and buttons. Immediately remove the housing if bubbles appear, as this indicates the housing is not sealed and will de“nitely leak under pressure! Once the dive day is finished, good underwater photographers head for rinse tanks or bathtubs rather than bars and food. The first priority should be giving the photo gear a long soak in fresh water. Once that is complete, the housing should be dried, the camera carefully removed to avoid any stray drips the towel missed, and all housing seals and O-rings thoroughly cleaned and inspected. When inspecting seals and O-rings, while it may seem extreme, it is a good idea to use a magnifying glass because one tiny grain of sand, one strand of fine hair or a bit of lint, creates enough of a break in the seal to cause a catastrophic leak. After inspecting the O-rings and seals, its time to get out the silicone grease made for O-ring lubrication and gently apply a thin layer to the rings. If the rings are removable, it is an excellent idea to remove them from their tracks and inspect the tracks for any sand, hair, or lint before lubricating the rings. Careful is the key word when working with removable O-rings. Great caution should be used when removing them so as not to nick or stretch the rings. Never pull an O-ring but rather roll it through the “ngers as if rolling modeling clay, then lay the O-rings back in their tracks and reseat them. Wipe out the inside of the housing with a soft, lintfree cloth and its ready once again for the camera. Check the O-rings once last time before closing the housing. Then and only then is the photographer set to head for the bar and dinner. Becky Bauer is a scuba instructor and award-winning journalist covering the marine environment in the Caribbean.

40 ALLATSEA.NET JUNE 2012 Our Natural World My wife Barbara and I recently spent two threemonth periods in Bonaire, diving almost every day. One of our favorite photographic subjects was the Caribbean Reef Squid, a creature with amazing brainpower, keen vision, and a unique ability to communicate. Sepioteuthis sepiodea have cigar-shaped bodies and are 10-20cm long, including the ten tentacles that are “xed in a circle around the mouth. Two of the arms are stronger/ longer than the others. Along the mantle (body) are undulating “ns and under the head is a funnel that can be turned in various directions and used for jet propulsion. Internally, the Reef Squid has three hearts and blue blood (since it uses a blue, copper-containing protein called hemocyanin for binding oxygen). Found throughout the Caribbean Sea, Bahamas and south Florida, adult squid during the day often gather in schools … called shoals … of four to 30 individuals; at night they disperse to hunt individually. Voracious eaters, they consume 30-60% of their body weight daily, eating small “sh, crabs and shrimp. They catch prey using their two larger tentacles and then use the other eight to move the food to the mouth, where a strong and sharp beak is used to cut the prey into pieces that can be further processed by a raspy tongue called a radula. For camou”age and for surprisingly complex communication Reef Squid can rapidly change skin color and pattern by sending nerve pulses to receptors called chromatophores. In addition to a basic brown they display a zebra, a striped and a saddle pattern. In complex situations, such as the need to signal one thing to a female on the left and another to a rival male on the right, they can even use one pattern on one side and another pattern on the other. Courtship occurs within a shoal several times during the day and year-round. Like other cephalopods, Reef Squid are semelparous meaning that the adult dies shortly after reproducing. After competing with two to “ve other males, during which they usually display a zebra pattern, the victor … typically the largest … approaches the female and calms her by alternately gently stoking her with his tentacles and then BY CHARLES SHIPLEY CARIBBEAN REEF SQUID

Threats a bit more serious may result in attempting to blend into the background by using camou”age patterns. If ”ight is desirable, the direction of retreat may be hidden by the ejection of black ink. Rapid retreat is accomplished by jetting away. First, the squid expands its mantle, which “lls the pallial cavity with water. Body muscles are then contracted to expel the water through the special funnel.

The female places the packet in her seminal receptacle and, accompanied by the male, “nds a suitable place … such as under a rock … to lay her eggs in small clusters. Some claim that the female dies immediately after laying eggs, but naturalists and writers Ned and Anna Deloach observed a shoal of 13 squid over the course of a week and observed egg-laying on the third day without a reduction in the shoal count. However, there is agreement that after reproducing both the male and female will be dead within a month. On average, squid have seven confrontations an hour with predators and employ a number of different strategies to protect themselves. Perhaps the most important is that of shoaling, during which the school has the advantage of many eyes. Typically, the shoal arranges itself in a column with the larger individuals positioned as sentinels at each end. When a sentinel signals alarm, the squid have a number of options. If the threat is mild, the response may be intimidation by extending the body fully and orienting perpendicular to the threat so PHOTO BY CHARLES SHIPLEY

44 ALLATSEA.NET JUNE 2012 Ellie and Jim Watson with Labradoodle Cali


JUNE 2012 ALLATSEA.NET 45PETS ONBOARD A FOLLOW UP After reading the article Pets Onboard in a recent edition of All At Sea I thought a little additional information would be helpful. My wife Ellie and I, with our dog Cali, have spent the last eight years cruising in the eastern Caribbean. It has been quite a learning experience. So I thought I should share this hard earned information with the readers of the magazine. Having been dog lovers all our life it never was a question of whether or not we would bring a dog with us. We decided a medium size non-shedding dog would make sense, so we got a Labradoodle. She was six months old when she was introduced to the boat and the cruising life. I think it is much easier to train a young dog then an older one. Potty training was the “rst thing we worked on. The windless up on the bow was a good place to start, since we have a convenient wash down hose located there. It took a few days of not going on shore leave before she got used to the concept of going in this spot. The next thing we worked on was making sure she could swim and feel comfortable around all this water. She didnt like the dinghy until she realized it meant shore leave. Dont ever let your dog jump off the boat, even at anchor, to fetch something. It could happen while you are sailing and cause a major problem. Getting your dog prepared to visit the Caribbean Islands can be a costly and a time consuming process. It usually takes about a month and costs between $400 and $550 U.S., depending on your vet and other factors. There really is no difference in the requirements you must meet between importing a pet and being in transit (see sidebars). If you BY JIM WATSON REQUIRED DOCUMENTS WHEN TRAVELLING WITH YOUR PET INTO THE CARIBBEAN ISLANDS OTHER THINGS YOU SHOULD BRING:


46 ALLATSEA.NET JUNE 2012 Pets Onboard STRICT ISLANDS: NON STRICT ISLANDS: plan to go both south and north in the same season, be sure to ask for an extended time frame on the permit, so you dont have to go through the process twice. Remember to maintain a patient and positive attitude when dealing with the island vets and their staff. Its their island and their rules. Dont ever try to sneak your dog ashore because you may not like the consequences. The results could be a “ne, have the dog impounded, or even euthanized. Fax or e-mail all the required documents to the government vets of“ce and wait for them to issue the permit. I usually call them to make sure they received the documents and answer any questions they may have. This process could take one to three days so allow for the necessary time. Agree with the vet on where you plan to check in so they can meet you there. You must provide 48 hours advanced notice of your arrival. Also agree on whether to keep the dog on the boat or bring them ashore for inspection. There could be a fee for doing that inspection of up to $50.00 US. Once you have met with the vet and they have cleared your dog into the island there are other things to be aware of: Always carry the permit with you at all times. Have a strong collar with the dogs name and your boat name and contact information attached, and a leash to maintain control. I always carry poop bags with me to pick up her waste. Do not let your dog run free, because you never know what she might be chasing. Once, on St. John, Cali chased a mongoose for half an hour. She was out of sight and voice command, and when she returned, she was full of burs. On some of the islands the locals put out rat poison to deal with the stray dogs, so always keep your eye on them. Also, be prepared to deal with the island dogs. Some are pets (have collars on) and they are okay but other are strays or guard dogs. I usually carry a small bat and mace with me to protect both of us. Another unexpected bene“t of having a dog on board is security. Cali always barks when someone approaches our boat and only stops when I say okay. This alerts us to any possible issues and makes us feel more comfortable when going ashore at night. It sounds like a lot of work, but its worth it to have your dog with you. Jim and Ellie Watson have cruised the Caribbean since 2003 on their sailboat Last Tango CARIBBEAN ISLANDS Having been dog lovers all our life it never was a question of whether or not we would bring a dog with us.

JUNE 2012 ALLATSEA.NET 49 Puerto Rico THE BoRINQUEN ISLANDS SAILING ASSOCIATION MAKING WAVES IN PUERTO RICOS MARINE COMMUNITY BY CAROL M. BAREUTHER The BoRinquen Islands Sailing Association (BRISA) is the largest sailing organization in the history of Puerto Rico. This non-pro“t corporation and af“liate of the Puerto Rico Sailing Federation is also the fastest growing sailing group on the island. Cruising and racing sailors, and even power boaters, are all among its members. The rapid growth and success of BRISA owes to a strong founding membership, the support of a wide range of boat-related activities and the planting of the organizations roots in a number of neighborhoods throughout Puerto Rico. BRISA was founded seven years ago after a group of experienced sailors met to discuss the need for a new type of club that would be accessible and attractive to everyone in the sailing community, particularly family members,Ž explains Graham Castillo, commodore of BRISA Sur. BRISAs Those magnificent men and their flying machinesPHOTO: CARLOS G.

Today he serves as the President of BRISAs Board of Directors.Ž BRISA currently boasts over 150 members plus their families. The organization footprint covers all of Puerto Rico in three commands … north, east and south. Our leaders are remarkable volunteers who understand that the secret of a successful life is to sel”essly give your time, talents, and sometimes money for the bene“t of others without expecting anything in return,Ž says Castillo. That karma is the rich fuel that keeps the organization going. For example, in the south, we sponsor young athletes to sail who otherwise would not be able to participate in class regattas; we have also incorporated the Chalanas as a club ”eet, and we are in the process of developing a Sailing Center.Ž BRISA commodores host at least one activity each month except in June and July.

This year the BRISA Cup was renamed as the Ulysse Nardin Festival of Sails in support of its sponsor. The term Festival of Sails was chosen to better depict a highly competitive yachting contest highlighted by a historic onshore festivity,Ž says Castillo. It was held at Puerto del Rey Marina in Fajardo during the Chrysler Caribbean International Boat Show. The regatta presented not only trophies to the winners of each class, but also over $50.000 in Ulysse Nardin watches.Ž BRISAs calendar not only encourages the islands native Chalana ”eet to race, but provides the structure needed to launch this tradition to a higher level of visibility and racing performance. Racing Chalanas was a dying sailing tradition in Salinas and Santa Isabel as they only raced once or twice a year,Ž says Castillo. Last year they ran over six regattas and this year they have raced the BRISA West Commodores Regatta in January, the Chalana Festival in February, and the next one will be in July for the towns Fiestas Patronales. Other than races, we motivate the owners to bring the boats out to picnics in Cabuzasos, an offshore key, as a yearly summer family activity.Ž Encouraging the younger generation to sail is one of BRISAs greatest challenges, says Castillo. The “rst step is to engage the parents and make them part of the BRISA family. Many of them own or race Chalanas or live next to the Caribbean Sea, and/or own sailboats. We also provide them with opportunities to race in scheduled dinghy regattas. We also are actively sponsoring two athletes to compete in different regattas and one of them to become a Certi“ed US Sailing Small Boat Instructor. In the long run, the Sailing Centers Strategic Plan will give an opportunity to local leaders, parents, and sailors to concentrate in the development of new competitive athletes.Ž The “rst such Sailing Center at Santa Isabel is a joint venture between the municipality led by the Mayor and BRISA. Its initial seven boat ”eet of Lasers, Sun“sh, and Optimist is powered by volunteers from the Ponce Yacht and Fishing Club. In years to comeŽ, says Castillo, we will see how sailing develops in equal terms with other activities such as soccer, basketball, baseball or other Olympic sports.Ž For information, visit: www.brisaweb.net or like BRISA on Facebook.

Seventeen boats in four classes: Racing, Cruising, Jib & Main A and B, took to the seas off Fajardo under partly cloudy skies with 12 to 15 knots of wind blowing out of the east.

JUNE 2012 ALLATSEA.NET 55 United States Virgin Islands This month marks the 25th anniversary of Teddy Seymours solo circumnavigation, a voyage that wrote his name in the history books. The St. Croix sailor left Frederiksted harbor on February 26 1986 and returned on June 19 1987, becoming the “rst African-American man to solo circumnavigate the globe. Now, on the 25th anniversary of his feat, Seymour says it wasnt an accomplishment he purposely set out to achieve. SAILORS IN THE NEWS TEDDY SEYMOUR PIONEERING CIRCUMNAVIGATOR BY CAROL M. BAREUTHER




JUNE 2012 ALLATSEA.NET 57The idea to sail around the world developed some “ve years before I set off,Ž Seymour explains. I enjoyed sailing the Caribbean and had cruised up and down the islands over the previous ten years, but I wanted to explore further a“eld. I like to sail with company and originally planned to go with two women. They backed out. I dont think they found my 35-footer quite like a cruise ship.Ž Born in Yonkers, New York, two blocks from the Hudson, Seymours love of the outdoors, and adventurous spirit, showed itself early. He wasnt fazed when he sledded down a hill right under a moving milk truck or when he had to be rescued when his hand-built raft got caught up in the Hudsons current. Many aspects of Seymours early life prepared him for the circumnavigation. He served as an artillery of“cer in the United States Virgin Islands Marine Corps for seven years, studied molecular biology at California State University at Fullerton with the dream of becoming a doctor, and then worked in production management for the American Can Company. It was the management skills I learned and how to build a quality product that really helped me prepare my Ericson 35ft, MK I, Alberg hull design, Love Song for the cruise,Ž he says. During eleven years of ownership, she was heavily reinforced, modi“ed and equipped for solo-cruising.Ž Seymour taught himself to sail while stationed at Camp Pendleton, in California. Marine of“cers could check out Lightenings. Later, he purchased a Lido 14 and then a Snipe. He once sailed the Snipe solo over 26 miles of open ocean to Catalina Island, lunching on tuna out of the can and watching the sharks lick their chops as they swam beside him.

JUNE 2012 ALLATSEA.NET 59 United States Virgin Islands It was during these early years that he earned a Masters Degree in recreational administration from the University of California at Long Beach. An avid runner, Seymour met someone from St. Croix at a track meet and learned the island was desperate for teachers and coaches. He was living on his Columbia 26 at the time and ultimately sailed her from Californias Newport Beach to St. Croix to take a teaching position. He worked two jobs seven days a week to save money for his circumnavigation. Yet, the purchase of sails, ground tackle, satellite navigation, solar panels, refrigeration and a ham radio depleted his cruising budget from $12,000 to $6000 ($2000 of this on a credit card) by the time he cast off. I only made 12 stops and spent money only on essentials,Ž says Seymour. Thats my no-frills circumnavigation of the world and it ended up costing me only $5300. I caught plenty of “sh, ate a lot of rice and beans and grew my own sprouts.Ž The most exhilarating part of his global cruise … which saw him traverse the Panama canal, ride the swift moving Humboldt Current to the Galapagos, stop to run a 5000-meter race in American Samoa, cruise the Torres Strait between New Guinea and Australia to the Indian Ocean … happened at this point. Seymour wrote in his journal at the time: The halfway point in the circumnavigation, where the Timor Sea meets the Indian Ocean, was the dramatic locale chosen by Mother Nature to bestow a bonus package of exciting sailing conditions: wind, rain, and swells appeared with exuberance. The wind pumped at 20 knots with periodic squalls, 100 percent cloud cover prevailed most of the time, and rain fell in abundance. Love Song surfed supreme on the steep, swift swells, averaging 164 miles per day. The companionway remained closed most of the time as waves climbed over the transom and quarter section. Vigorous motion con“ned me to a bunk and a book, and the dense overcast required the use of a lamp during daylight hours. He “nished the second half of his trip by sailing north of Africa through the Red Sea and Mediterranean where he met challenges such as heavy ship traf“c, freezing temperatures, hailstorms, blizzards and a gale he survived in the land-locked sea. Finally, Seymour completed his circumnavigation with a 38 day sail from Spain to St. Croix. I felt a bit of a letdown when it was over, but after sailing around the world, Frederikstead is still one of my favorite places,Ž says Seymour, who received the prestigious Golden Circle Award by the Joshua Slocum Society. The trip proved to be an incredible and invaluable experience.Ž Carol M.

JUNE 2012 ALLATSEA.NET 61The British Virgin Islands are blessed with aquamarine waters, calm anchorages and deserted coves that have beguiled mariners for centuries. This sailors paradise was the setting for the ClubSwan Caribbean Rendezvous held March 12th … 17th at the Bitter End Yacht Club. Nearly twenty Swans, ranging in size from the Swan 44, South Wind to the Swan 62s Uxorious and Glisse, turned out for a week of fun and light-hearted competition. Run by Nautors Swan, participants at the Rendezvous enjoyed various activities including a hard-fought hors doeuvres contest, a cocktail contest, and some fun regattas where Steve De Voe from Jamestown Boat Yard took charge of the Race Committee. The Rendezvous kicked off with a welcome party in the beautiful surroundings of the Bitter End Yacht Club. The racing action started on the “rst day with a fun laser regatta in which Chris Brand, sailing the Swan 53, Merel Four was winner. On the second day the ”eet set sail through the islands where Nautors Swan hosted “ve days of fun on and off the water. Nautors Swan race management and event team took full advantage of their beautiful surroundings setting courses through the scenic archipelago of the BVI. This year the route saw the yachts visit Virgin Gorda, Cooper Island, Jost Van Dyke, Marina Cay and the idyllic desert island, Sandy Cay. The Round Virgin Gorda race, held on the “nal day, was a highly competitive affair. The Swan 62, Uxorious owned by Colin Buf“n claimed line honors and the Dockwise Yacht Transport Trophy, while the Swan 53, Merel Four chartered by Jonty and Vicki Lay“eld, won the race on corrected time. Once again we had a great time doing the Rendezvous on the Swan 53,Ž said Mr. Lay“eld, a Swan owner. This was our second time and it was nice to meet up with old British Virgin Islands CLUBSWAN 2012 CRUISING RENDEZVOUS IN THE MAGICAL BRITISH VIRGIN ISLANDS friends from last year.

JUNE 2012 ALLATSEA.NET 63 St. Barthelemy LES VOILES DE ST. BARTH A WINNING BET BY ELLEN LAMPERT-GRAUX PHOTO BY ROSEMOND GRAUX Jumpstarting a new regatta can be a risky business. The Caribbean racing circuit is jam-packed with various kinds of races, from Cuba to Aruba, with everything from classic J-boats to the latest carbon-“ber racing sloops on the start lines. The races are jockeying for position on the calendar and the best boats are wooed to attend, with such glittering prizes as Panerai watches for the winners. In St Barth, the star of the nautical arena has been the St. Barth Bucket, but three years ago the island launched another race, Les Voiles de St Barth, which in name at least was inspired by Les Voiles de St Tropez. Open to boats of all sizes, Les Voiles offers local sailors one thing the Bucket doesnt: the opportunity to actually sail, and there is a relationship with the local sailing school. But three years ago, only 25 or so boats participated, not a bad start, but smaller than the organizers had predicted. By year two, the number had considerably increased and word of the race had begun to spread around the yachting community thanks to the laid-back appeal of the race paired with its professional organization. This year, the third edition of the race took place the week leading up to Easter with four days of racing taking place from April 3rd … 7th. (With one day off for relaxation.) In the meantime the inner workings of the event had shifted from its original non-pro“t status, giving way to management by a private company, TP Sail Events, a partnership between Annelisa Gee, Luc Poupon, and Franois Tolede, with a large volunteer staff to help with the organization of festivities on land, and races at sea. With almost 60 boats participating, the event became more important to the island. And with around 800 people from abroad coming for the regatta, its economic impact was palpable: certain hotels, villas, and restaurants were full, rental cars were zipping about, the ferries were busy, and the island was hopping. The major sponsors of the event, Richard Mille Watches and Gaastra Sports Clothing, helped get the regatta off the ground. Richard Mille attended in person and presented a third luxury timepiece to George David, whose latest iteration of Rambler was victorious again this year, making him a three-time winner of the event. Pretty soon youll have enough to open a boutique,Ž Mille quipped as he presented David with the watch. With more and more boats interested in participating, maybe someone will give Rambler a real run for her money when the fourth edition of Les Voiles takes place from April 9th -13th next year. And St. Barth once again gets an economic shot in the arm from a regatta, joining the Bucket, the Cata Cup, the Fun Cup, the West Indies Regatta, and the Transat Ag24 in the islands array of successful nautical events. Ellen Lampert-Graux lives in Saint Barthlemy. She is editor-in-chief of Harbour Magazine and writes regularly about entertainment, design and technology for Live Design magazine, and about Caribbean architecture for MACO a Trinidad-based lifestyle magazine.

64 ALLATSEA.NET JUNE 2012ANTIGUA CLASSIC YACHT REGATTA OLD BOATS AND GOOD TIMESBY DEVI SHARPAntigua The smell of varnish was in the air and bronze and stainless steel gleamed as contestants for the 25th Antigua Classic Yacht Regatta (ACYR) gathered to race. Fifty six boats from ports in the Caribbean and around the world came to compete and show off their classic beauty. This is a regatta of superlatives that go beyond who can sail their boat the fastest. The oldest boat taking part, the 82ft gaff schooner Coral of Cowes was built in 1902. The longest boat, at 183ft, was the schooner Athos It was spectacular to see the diminutive Springtide a 24ft sloop, alongside one of the ten boats over 100ft in length. The efforts of the crews and owners to varnish and polish were rewarded at the Concours d Elegance. The overall winner was the famous 51ft yawl Dorade built in 1930. Winner in the category for privately maintained yachts was the Caribbean cruiser Spirited Lady of Fowey Cruinneag III a 2011 Atlantic Rally for Cruisers veteran, took home the Arne Frizzell prize for the most seaworthy boat. Last year, the 55-year-old ketch Lone Fox took home the prestigious Panerai Trophy for best overall corrected cumulative time, along with the Wayfarer Trophy for “rst overall Classic and Vintage boat. This made the Fox, chartered by Don Ward and sailed by Ward and friends, the yacht to beat. The tension was high between Saphaedra and Lone Fox in Classic B class. For the “rst two days Saphaedra a 51ft ketch, held the best overall corrected time, but Lone Fox had two great days of sailing and once again made off with the Panerai Trophy. Saphaedra however, did win the Wayfarer Trophy. The Mount Gay Trophy was awarded to the local boat, Mariella a 79ft yawl built in 1938. There was a good showing of traditional Caribbean workboats. The eight boat ”eet included six sloops and two schooners. The local sloop Zemi once again took home the trophy for the best elapsed time for the ”eet. The 72ft Fife ketch, Eilean built in Fairlie, Scotland, in 1936, returned to Antigua, her homeport, to much fanfare. She underwent a major restoration in Italy, supported by Of“cine Panerai, the exclusive Italian watch manufacturer, the of“cial sponsor of the Panerai Classic Yachts Challenge, and major sponsor of the ACYR. Eilean s eclectic history includes 36 Atlantic crossings as well as featuring in Duran Eilean returns to Antigua after undergoing renovation in ItalyPHOTO: LEE SMITH

66 ALLATSEA.NET JUNE 2012 Durans Rio video in 1982. The famous video was shown at the awards ceremony ahead of the bands lead-singer Simon Le Bon taking the stage to make a short speech to say how much he had enjoyed sailing aboard Eilean again during the regatta. Kenny Coombs, the driving force behind the event, also had plenty to celebrate. He received two awards … the Old Bob award for 25 years at the helm of ACYR and additional special prize from Signor Angelo Bonati, CEO of Of“cine Panerai. The 25th Anniversary of the Antigua Classic Yacht Regatta was a huge success with fantastic boats, great conditions, and best of all were the competitors, who enjoyed the festival of sail and went home happy,Ž Coombs told All At Sea. The regatta was not without drama. A broken bowsprit following a collision on day two did not stop the Anguilla-based Alden schooner Charm III from racing the next day. A local woodshop fabricated a new bowsprit, and in a matter of hours a few guys delivered it to the dock asking for the boat that ordered the bowsprit. They were so casual that they could have been asking for the boat that ordered the pizza. Charm IIIs owner Richard West was awarded the Spirit of Regatta Trophy for his determination to get back into the race. More drama surrounded the yacht Fire”y when, only seconds from the start, someone went overboard. The alert crew had the person back aboard before the gun. The very generous sponsors offered evening activities and parties. Panerai sponsored a hospitality booth that offered a much needed espresso in the morning and well deserved glass of wine or champagne in the evening. Mount Gay, the source of the much coveted Red Hats sponsored an evening event providing free rum drinks and giveaways of t-shirts and the popular hats. On Sunday, Sail Maine sponsored a delicious event with drinks and food.

JUNE 2012 ALLATSEA.NET 69 St. Lucia NORTHERN STAR VISITS SAINT LUCIA SUPERYACHT SETS NEW LOA RECORD AT MARIGOT BAY PHOTOS AND STORY BY CHRISTY RECAII Northern Star the largest vessel to berth at the Marina at Marigot Bay to date, caught the eyes of avid and amateur sailors alike when she docked in late March. Built in 2009 by Lrssen Yachts, Northern Star is 248ft long, 45ft wide, and has a draft of 13ft. She has a steel hull and aluminium superstructure. The superyacht, which is ”agged in the Cayman Islands, is German built and Canadian owned. She was berthed without anchors and used the marinas mooring buoys at the main superyacht pier. The mooring buoy system is possible because the area is extremely well sheltered from the wind and there is a lack of tidal currents in the deep bay. Northern Star is well travelled, having sailed to the Arctic and as far east as Istanbul. Captain Craig Franks supervised the construction of the yacht during its two-year building period. The New Zealander was also present during the design process. We are a no-nonsense yacht which has a massive fuel range and can go unsupported for weeks at a time with large fridge and freezer capacities, meaning we can be very remote,Ž noted Franks. The charter yacht can accommodate 12 guests in six cabins and carries a crew of 25. Northern Star sets a new record for longest yacht to visit Marigot, the previous record was set by the 243ft motor yacht Siren (now named Polar Star ) in 2008. The visit of Northern Star followed that of her predecessor whose visit prompted a number of changes in yachting regulations and visa requirements for St. Lucia, which have recently been fully implemented,Ž explained Bob Hathaway, Marina Manager at Marigot Bay. In late 2011 the visa requirements for Australian and Russian nationals were waived for pleasure cruisers during a maximum period of six months. A total of 350 different yachts with an overall length (LOA) exceeding 98ft have berthed in the Marigot Bay Marina since it opened in 2006. Christy Recaii is a journalist based in St Lucia who has a passion for sailing. She is a Hunter College graduate with a BA in Media Studies.

72 ALLATSEA.NET JUNE 2012 Curaao ANOTHER TITLE FOR ODILE VAN AANHOLT NOW SOUTH AMERICAN CHAMPION Buenos Aires, Argentina … Odile van Aanholt has added another title to an already impressive list, that of South American Optimist Girls Champion. The talented 14-year-old put on a sparkling performance at the Club Nautico San Isidro, “nishing fourth overall in the joint Boys/Girls league while competing against 160 sailors from 17 countries. The youngest of four sailing brothers and sisters, the Curaao-born youngster is also the North American Girls Champion and she became Boys and Girls Optimist World Champion 12-years-and-younger while competing in Malaysia in 2010. Racing on the brown, shallow waters of the Rio de la Plata was like sailing through caramel puddingŽ says Van Aanholt, who started the championship by winning the “rst race. In her next race, she “nished 16th but then went on to another win. On day two, she sailed consistently and scored a seven, six and eight. This put her in “fth position in the overall league and in the lead for the girls. On the third day, she found conditions more dif“cult with less wind and strong currents. She “nished 11th and 15th, which moved her into 12th position and third amongst the girls. Due to the lack of a permanent coach, Van Aanholt sailed with the 11-person Mexican team under the guidance of Hector Guzman. In 2011 Guzman held a clinic in Curaao and trained Van Aanholt at that time. He pointed out that Van Aanholts starts ought to be better and tried to get her to start in a more aggressive way. A top ten ranking will be possible in every single race if she has a perfect start, given her excellent boat speed, steadfastness and extensive experience in the tactical game,Ž Guzman said. On the fourth day of sailing the wind increased to 15 knots. Van Aanholt scored a two and a “ve and moved up to eighth position in the overall league. On the last day the wind varied from 17 to 20 knots with stronger gusts, this resulted in the sailors having to deal with wave conditions in which Van Aanholt ”ourished. She scored a “rst place. With only one race to go she even stood a chance of winning the Overall Boys and Girls Championship, but an over-cautious start saw her “nish in seventh place. As a result, she was two and three points short for silver and bronze, respectively. Van Aanholt is currently preparing for the July World Championships in Boca Chica in the Dominican Republic. In October she will defend her North American title in Valle de Bravo, Mexico. For more information, visit: www.optiworld.org Odile van Aanholt … South American Optimist Girls Champion

96 ALLATSEA.NET JUNE 2012 Caribbean Dining & Provisioning THE DISHBY CAPN JAN ROBINSONSaut pine nuts in a little olive oil; when they start to color, they release a heavenly aroma that will waft through the boat. Pine nuts can be used in many dishes … use them in a salad, they give a little sweetness. I like to alternate blood orange and avocado slices on a shallow bed of baby arugula. On top scatter some “nely cut red onion slices, along with some “nely chopped cilantro and pine nuts. Dress with a white wine vinaigrette. SAUTEED SPINACH AND PINENUTSPrep time: 5 minutes. Cooking time: 10 minutes. Serves: 4-6 2 lb spinach, rinsed 2 tsp olive oil 2 Tbsp toasted pine nuts Wash spinach, but allow the water to cling to leaves. Heat a skillet and cook spinach until it wilts over medium-high heat, about 3 minutes. Heat oil in another skillet over medium-high heat. Add spinach, pine nuts and garlic and cook about 2 minutes. Season with pepper and serve.MOROCCAN CHICKEN WITH PINE NUT COUSCOUSPrep time: 15 minutes. Cooking time: 30 minutes. Serves: 6 1 Tbsp sweet paprika 2 tsp turmeric 2 tsp ground coriander 2 tsp ground cumin 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon 2 lb skinless, boneless chicken, cut into 2-inch pieces 3 Tbsp extra-virgin olive oil 1 large onion, thinly sliced 6 large cloves garlic, crushed In a large bowl, mix together the paprika, turmeric, coriander, cumin and cinnamon. Add the chicken and toss to coat. In a large skillet, heat the oil, over medium-high heat until rippling and beginning to smoke. Add the chicken and cook, turning, until browned, 3 to 4 minutes. Add the onion, garlic and sliced lemon; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently, until the onion is softened, 6 to 7 minutes. Add 1 cup chicken stock, the olives and lemon juice, scraping the bottom of the pan. Remove from the heat and season with salt and pepper. In a medium saucepan, bring the remaining 1-1/2 cups chicken stock and the butter to a boil. Stir in the couscous, cover, turn off the heat and let stand for 5 minutes. Fluff the couscous with a fork and stir in the pine nuts. Top the chicken with the parsley. To serve, spoon the chicken and sauce over the couscous.KEY LIME PIE UNCONSTRUCTEDRecently I was on the M/Y Essence and Merrilie Insch showed me how to make this simple and delicious dessert. The recipe was inspired by Ed the Baker, the Food Ideas Factory of the US Virgin Islands. Prep time: 15 minutes. Cooking time: 30 minutes Chilling time: overnight. Makes: 14-18 Commence preparations the day before you wish to serve. 1 (14 oz) can sweetened condensed milk 4 egg yolks cup fresh key lime juice Whipped cream Remove coconut ”esh from nut and slice very “nely. (I use a potato peeler). Layer over cookie sheet and bake in the oven until crisp and golden. Set aside, but do not cover as it may become moist and soggy. Preheat oven to 350F. In a food processor, blend together condensed milk, eggs, and lime juice. Pour into a well-greased deep baking tray and bake in oven until small bubbles appear on top. Do not over-cook as you want the consistency to be silky rather than custard like. Let cool, then place in fridge overnight to set. Take an ice-cream scoop, and scoop pie “lling into delicate balls. Drop into chocolate cups. Top with whipped cream, coconut slivers, raspberries and a sprig of mint. Arrange on platter with a small dollop of cream at the base of the chocolate cup to act as glue and stop your dessert from slipping. Capt. Jan Robinson holds certi“cates from the Culinary Institute of America, The Ritz Cooking School, and the Cordon Bleu.

When it comes to sailing inkslingers, Gary E. Brown is among the best. Hes the voice of experience, and hes got the bar room bruises and ocean miles to prove it. Want a peek at the underbelly of paradise? Here it is. Caribbean High is an exciting, thrill-a-page waterfront yarn. … Capn Fatty Goodlander, Editor-at-Large of Cruising World, and author of Chasing the Horizon & Red Sea Run. It is as if James Bond becomes a Sea Gypsy and retires to the Caribbean! Packed with humorous ribald partying, a wide assortment of corruption and evil, strong and lasting friendships with love lost, and a frightening tropical storm, Gary Browns novel is a perfect way to dig your feet into the sand, “ ll a bucket with cold beers, and read. Or position your favorite reading chair near the “ replace wherever you live, and dream of the Caribbean. … B.D. Anderson, author of Wet Feet and Island Ice. Picked your book up the other day and now I cant put it down. Fabulous read! … Steve Hammond, Manager of St. Maarten 12MeterChallenge. Caribbean High Gets High Marks! Caribbean High is an excellent fast-paced, intricately detailed adventure story with twists and turns throughout. The writing is smooth and logical with NO slow spots … youve got to be on top of your game to keep up. TRUST THIS REVIEW... the Modern Action Novel that follows in the wake of Ian Fleming has brought great writers and even greater protagonist/heros such as Clive Cusslers Dirk Pitt, Ted Bells Alexander Hawke, Richard Marcinkos Rogue Warrior, W.E.B. Grif“ ns Presidential Agent and of course Jack Higgins Sean Dillon. If you enjoy any of these writers, you will de“ nitely love Caribbean High. The author Gary Brown is in fact a sailor who lives in the Caribbean and clearly had his share of experiences„which make this book rich with real life detail. If art imitates life, then Gary Brown has laid the blueprint with Caribbean High. Give it a try, I promise you will not be disappointed! … Charles Southwold Its the kind of a book that puts you there immediately. By the “ rst paragraph, you are already lost in this other world, a very familiar world if you are a sailor, but even if youre not, you know youre coming along for the ride. And quite a ride it is! … Lisa Burnet, for the St. Maarten Daily Herald Culture and Leisure supplement, The Weekender (23"4!%!%23!23! 3(23566"7 48%9%4:):;":):;"!7 <:=%:!(2353 !3=36>>2= (23 +"74)%:
