8 ALLATSEA.NET JANUARY 2013 Editors Log One of the things I like most about cruising, aside from being alone in mid ocean, is visiting places that are off the beaten track. Places that for various reasons we are not recommended to visit. Now, before you go accusing me of sending you into unsafe harbors and anchorages, Ill explain. I came to understand long ago that cruising means different things to different people and that yachtsmen and yachtswomen are an unusual lot. Cruisers experience one of the last great freedoms allowed to mortals, the freedom to sail beyond the horizon on their own little ship. The right to come and go as you please brings with it huge responsibilities. The choice of where to go and what you do once you get there is down to you. Logically, you would learn as much as possible about a place you might want to visit and base your decision to go there on what you have learned. But does that always work? The answer is no. In this edition, Birgit Hackl talks about her voyage to the Caribbean and a stopover in the Cape Verde Islands. The Cape Verdes have long had a reputation for lawlessness and yachts avoided the place. Birgit found the archipelago to be a magical place, safe, with warm and friendly people. Her article makes you think. Elsewhere in this edition, Captn Fatty Goodlander has a rant about dirtdwellers and why he is desperate to get to sea. He also touches on the subject of off the beaten track cruising, how people deal with it, and how they can be talked into doing something they later might regret. Fattys article touches on the perennial question of whether cruisers should or should not carry weapons. I have had my own experience with them and it was rather interesting. When we were in Gibraltar preparing to sail to the Caribbean, I was given an antique 4.10 shotgun (one up from a intlock) and a bag of cartridges by an old man who said youll need it to shoot pirates. I had been at sea about a week when I remembered the old gun and dug it out from under my bunk. Standing on the aft deck and feeling like Dirty Harry, Rooster Coburn Gary E. Brown, Editor and Rambo all rolled into one, I rammed a shell into the breach, tossed a bottle over the side, pulled back the hammer, aimed, red, and click! Nothing happened. I tried again and all I got was another click. No big bang, no recoil into the shoulder, and the bottle, which could well have been a pirate, had made off unscathed towards the horizon. Frustrated, I lowered the gun. BANG! The shot blew a hole in the deck between my feet. As I was naked at the time, I had powder burns where no man should have them. In fact I was lucky to have them at all! Why, I dont know, but I kept that gun on board for years. The last straw came when we visited an island (I prefer it remain nameless) and declared the gun while clearing customs at the police station. You would think I was armed with a nuclear bomb. I was frog marched back to the boat, a distance of about half-a-mile, by three guards armed with submachine guns. The old gun was brought in triumph from the boat and I was frog marched back to the police station, only now accompanied by an army of howling kids. My protestations that the gun didnt work and that you were safer standing in front of the damn thing than you were pulling the trigger got me nowhere. It was the same procedure when I went to clear out; only this time in reverse. Worse, on reaching the dock I was bundled onto the boat and the police immediately threw off the lines and waved me away, at gunpoint. And still I kept the gun! That is until we went to Florida where I met a chap, an engineer, who loved and understood guns. I showed him the 4.10 and he swooned. He said it was an English fowling piece of around 100 years old. A collectors item that he would love to have for his collection but as it was quite valuable, I should keep it. Before leaving Florida I gave him the gun. I hope he wasnt naked when he pulled the trigger. READY, T AKE AIM ... CL I C K

16 ALLATSEA.NET JANUARY 2013 News C ARIBBEAN NEWS A BRIEF LOOK INTO THE HAPPENINGS OF OUR WORLD New Transatlantic Rally LaunchedA new Transatlantic rally between the Canaries and the Caribbean has been launched by Sailing Rallies Ltd. The Christmas Caribbean Rally will leave Marina Rubicn, Lanzarote, on December 16th 2013. Participants will sail 2850 miles to the popular Jolly Harbour marina, Antigua, spending Christmas and New Year at sea. Open to boats between 6.4m and 23m, the allinclusive boat entrance fee, includes a huge discount package (for example on berthing and chandlery), a free preparation weekend, and even a free embroidered polo shirt for each crew member. Special events for children are also included in the entrance fee. A cleverly thought through rally membership card which is valid until the end of May 2014, allows those cruising the Caribbean after the rally to access yard discounts in Antigua and Grenada and includes seven free nights berthing in Port Louis Marina in Grenada. For information, visit: www.sailingrallies.comBequia Youth SailorsSir Frederick Ballantyne, Governor General of St Vincent & the Grenadines, supports the Bequia Youth Sailors and their Olympic Dreams. Started by Andy Mitchell and Christian Schrijver with many local supporters, the Bequia Youth Sailing charity has been running for almost two years and is now looking ahead and setting its sights on the next Olympic Games. November saw an impromptu regatta on Young Island where Sir Frederick Ballantyne, Governor General of St. Vincent & the Grenadines, and Simon Carey, Regional Manager for TUI Marine for the Windward Islands (Sunsail & Moorings) offered their support to assist in fund raising. The charity wants to send six of its team to compete in a regatta in Puerto Rico in February 2013 and needs to raise 40,000$EC to help fund the trip. The regatta is seen as one of many steps towards developing an international team ready for the Olympic Games in four years time. Andy Mitchell of Bequia Youth Sailors said: It was a great day for the youngsters. To meet the Governor General and have his full support for the work were doing is fantastic. Carey noted it was important to give the young people of the islands such a great opportunity. There are some great sailors amongst the current teams, but there is also a lot of untapped talent which needs nurturing and encouraging, he said. www.bequiayouthsailors.netPeg Legs Round Tortola RaceIn the 43rd annual Peg Legs Round Tortola Race sailed mid November, the Melges 32 INTAC vanquished trimaran Triple Jack to take overall honours and set a new monohull record in the Nanny Cay Challenge. Completing the circumnavigation in 3 hours, 57 minutes and 36 seconds, INTAC took 17 minutes and 29 seconds off the time set by Jurakan another Melges 32, in the 2009 race. Triple Jack was rst across the line (matching her 2009 time of 3 hours and 33 minutes) 24 minutes ahead of INTAC but the time difference was not enough to win on corrected time. Pipe Dream was second overall and Reba was third. Girasoli won the cruising class.

This marked the rst time since 1989 the Cruising Division start of the Atlantic Rally for Cruisers suffered a delay. Organizers made the decision to split the start after a low pressure weather system was predicted to bring strong winds south of Gran Canaria. Thirty four boats 27 Racing Division boats and seven of the larger Cruising Division boats elected to take the rst start on November 25th. The remaining 193 boats opted for the second start and the promise of improving weather two days later.

18 ALLATSEA.NET JANUARY 2013 News YA C H T CL UB & FISHING CL UB NEWS SHARE YOUR HAPPENINGS WITH THE CARIBBEAN COMMUNITY Sint Maarten Sportshing FoundationFollow Me 5 from French St. Martin was named Champion Boat at the 5th Annual Budget Marine Wahoo Tournament with a massive catch of 336.6lb of sh. Follow Me 5 also sailed off with the Top Angler trophy. Second place went to Yellow Whip from St. Martin with a total 243.5lb. The November competition attracted an outstanding 23 boats from around the region, shing for a multitude of prizes. Sian Hudson aboard Natalie Kate was named Best Female Angler, and Joey Erato, aboard Five O won the Best Junior Angler award. Largest kingsh (30.4lb) went to the boat Briana Jami from Saba. The largest Mahi Mahi (45.1lb) was caught by Challenge from St. Maarten. Trimmed Out from St. Barths caught the largest wahoo, a 74.3-pounder, setting a new record for the event. Champion boat under 25ft was Scamp with a total of 74lb. Living the Dream from St. Croix won the prize for Best Dressed Crew. This tournament really made its mark, said a Living the Dream crew member. I will encourage more boats to come from St. Croix to sh this tournament next year. Following the tournament, the SMSFF donated an undisclosed amount of cash to the St. Maarten Sea Rescue Foundation as a token of their appreciation. Fish caught during the tournament was donated to the St. Maarten Medical Center and the St. Maarten Home. Virgin Islands Game Fishing Club Clive Mahabir only caught one sh in this years Wahoo Wind-Up. Mahabirs wahoo, however, weighed in at a whopping 91.3lb large enough to win him the top prize of $10,000 cash in this Virgin Islands Game Fishing Club (VIGFC)hosted and Budget Marine-sponsored tournament held in November. That was our rst sh, our rst strike of the day, and I just concentrated on getting the sh into the boat, explains Mahabir, who was shing aboard the Luhrs 40 Express, Mixed Bag north of St. Thomas when he hooked the huge sh. It was only after we got it onboard that we realized how big it was. Meanwhile, the catch of eight wahoo earned Team Biscoe the title of Top Boat. We had a great time, explains Dr. Byron Biscoe, whose 12-year-old son Billy caught three of the wahoo, while her nine-year-old son Brett reeled in one during his rstever offshore shing tournament. The team shed aboard DoubleHeader s, a 35ft custom center console. When we werent catching sh, we were telling sh stories and really enjoying our day together, Biscoe says. Cash prizes were awarded to the anglers who caught the ten largest wahoo. In addition to Mahabirs ve gure prize, the team aboard DoubleHeader III caught seven of the ten largest wahoo: Chris Berry, second, with a 46.31-pounder and Tyler Maltby, third, with a 39.05lb wahoo. Prizes were presented at an Awards Dinner at the VIGFC. A eet of 12 boats from all three U.S. Virgin Islands with 62 anglers shed the tournament. Personnel from the Department of Planning & Natural Resources Fish & Wildlife Department, headed by director Roy Pemberton, Jr., conducted the ofcial weigh-in. We had a great tournament and we invite everyone to come out and sh with us in future tournaments, says tournament director, Paul Meyer.

20 ALLATSEA.NET JANUARY 2013T HE MADNESS OF MODERN C IVI L IZA T ION VERSUS THE JOYS OF OFFSHORE BY CAPN FATTY GOODLANDERSailing Humor A note from Fatty: I wrote this one year ago, just after returning from my second circumnavigation. I did not publish it. I found it too shrill, too truthful. Yes, circumnavigating is a dangerous addiction. Returning addles you. It is easier to start than stop. But Ive decided to release this column because it perfectly illustrates the confused state of mind of a contented sailor rejoining the dreaded rat race. Read on: It is impossible to convey how crazy todays America is to its land-lubbing, dirt-dwelling, rock-riding shore inhabitantsonly offshore sailors seem to be able to accurately gauge its madness. We recently wrapped up our second circumnavigationand are frantically preparing for our thirdbefore the hooks of consumerism bury too deep. This means that, despite our better judgment, weve had to mingle with the Common Folk Ashorepeople whose genetic pre-disposition towards sea sickness have condemned them to a life of misery among the worms, bugs, and snakes. (The worst pests, of course, are the politicians.) We had a wonderful 26-day passage westward from the Canariesand then, suddenly, we were in the very Belly of the Beast. From every angle, we were bombarded with commercials. Our heads were lled with dancing dollar signs. Wed been perfectly happy without a lot of plastic crap cluttering our livesand were now learning that, in reality, we simply couldnt live without all that chintzy Chinese stuff from Kmart, Walmart, and Home Depot. If that wasnt bad enoughfear was shouted from every roof top. We were going to lose our precious cyber identity by innocently mistyping a password, Google was going to report what type of perversions we preferred and, hence, the Christian Right (or Liberal Left) was going to burn us at the stake.

One day some doctors (who were completely independent yet funded by a drug company) would announce a horrible new disease which millions were dying from or going to die from soon and the following daylucky break!that same drug company would announce the cure! well, not a cure, reallybut if you took it for the rest of your life, well, youd have one a life, I mean. Nobody seems smart enough to say, Actually, I feel ne. And Id prefer not to be a life-long drug addict. So, thanksbut-no-thanks. Alas, even the marine community isnt immune from this fear-mongering. Many Western offshore sailors are petried by the Somali pirateswho are half-the-world away. Hence, they huddle together in convoys and shake in fear as a local person of color rows by. how crazy is that? To sail a third of the way around the world to visit Vanuatuand then scowl when a Vanuatuan rows by! I was born in Chicago. I laugh when I meet up with boats from major American cities while circumnavigatingwho have a no locals aboard policy. We on Wild Card almost have exactly the opposite conceptno Westerners aboard! Yes, people from New Jersey scare me. The whole reason we sail to Borneo, Madagascar, and Africa is to meet the peoplenot avoid them. No, we dont travel in packs of self-reinforcing paranoia. No, we dont spend all our time comparing weapons, cleaning our guns, or checking our cockpit grenades. (We cruised with one boat with a milkcrate full of NATO grenades in the cockpit. You never know, said its skipperas if that explained everything.) It is so easy to fall into this Them-and-Us fear trap. We know two lovely people, Chris and Des, who are almost peace-niks in normal lifewho were ordered by their buddy boat leader to make a batch of Molotov Cocktails for their Indian Ocean passage, and actually did! (They now are full of guilt and remorse but at the time, they felt they had to be ready to kill to survive recreational boating!) Insurance is another issue. You have to have it, of course. No, you shouldnt spend money on your anchors and ground tackle put it into insurance instead so that, when you drag, you can recoup some of your investment. I nd it amazing that so many of my shore friends are betting (via their insurance payments) that they will be sick, ripped off, and/or have an accident. In fact, many of them have paid so much money into the system for so longthat it is almost a relief when they get cancer and are able to recoup some of their losses. The craziest part is how inconvenient having all the conveniences really is. I dont have a car not because of the expense it entails but because it makes me less free, not more free. And my personal freedom is something I cherish highly something which cant be purchased but must be earned something which is central to my life. Or, to put it another way, personal freedom is my core value. Marinas often take forever to check you in and outand quiz you rudely upon entrance and exit by foot as well. Shipyards used to primarily charge you to haul now thats just one of the menu of choices offered: do you want your boat to stand upright or fall over?

No, that ofce full of people isnt to provide you with the corporate services promised but rather to invent new prot centers such as, well, billing fees.

I blame the airlines for thisthey are constantly telling me I cant have the level of service I deserve unless I pay them an additional Golden Rube bribe as well.

If you shove your boat away from the dock or lift up its anchor, its bow will turn away from the windand it will broad-reach away. Its that simple.

JANUARY 2013 ALLATSEA.NET 25 Sailing Humor BY JULIAN PUTLEY GRAPHICS BY HANNAH WELCH As I write this there has been another report of a fatal shark attack off the coast of California and again the victim was a surfer. The news report said it was likely to be a Great White and that a surf board with ns slicing through the waves could easily be mistaken for a tasty morsel by a hungry predator. To put all the surfers out there at ease, the report also said that shark attacks are extremely rare: from 2006 to 2010 there were only three fatal shark attacks in US waters. Considering that more than 200 million people visit US beaches each year, the number of shark attacks is tiny. Of those millions of beach goers, about 40 are attacked by sharks, while more than 30,000 need to be rescued from surng accidents. To put this into perspective, there are approximately 25 million sharks killed by humans for every one human killed by a shark. So if you believe in karma, human attacks are likely to increase. Charlie often gets asked questions by his charterers concerning shark attacks, monster storms or other harrowing experiences. What was the most frightening experience you had while sailing on your world cruise? asked one inquisitive young lady. Being attacked by a transvestite in Singapore, replied Charlie. It is very rare to see sharks in the BVI. The reason is that all the large pelagic sh including sharks feed at the drop off several miles from the islands. Close to the islands there is nothing for them to feed on. Charlie has seen Black Tips off Anegada, a Lemon Shark attacking a turtle and Nurse Sharks taking a siesta. In the Pacic its a different story, sharks are much more prevalent and deep water often comes right up to the edge of the atolls. When Charlie was cruising the Pacic in the 1980s he heard about the yam festival at Pentecost Island, Vanuatu, in the South Pacic. It is a unique festival where young men jump off a man-made tower hundreds of feet high, head rst, with nothing but vines tied to their ankles. It was, and still is, a death defying performance whereby a successful jumper must be so exact as to have his hair touch the ground as the vines stretch to their very limit, all done to please the god of the harvest (and to prove that he has the biggest cojones in the village). It was, in fact, the forerunner of bungy-jumping. Charlie had to see this so he sailed into a small bay in the lee of the island and anchored. As was his habit he dived down to inspect the anchor and the possible arc of swing to make sure the bottom had no obstructions. As he was doing this he noticed a throng of islanders on the shore all waving and making quite a din. Charlie was overwhelmed at this enthusiastic greeting and later, when he rowed ashore, he thanked the local chief for the wonderful welcome, Well, said the chief, they were actually waving and yelling at you to get out of the water. Last week, right there, we lost one of our children to a shark attack!

26 ALLATSEA.NET JANUARY 2013 Superyachts Cruising to the Caribbean either from the U.S. or Europe is certainly an adventure. Yet, an annual trek like this can take its toll on a yacht in areas such as engine hours, fuel costs, crew hire, and wear and tear. These are some of the reasons why owners and their skippers, such as Capt. Casey Fasciano, aboard the 1949-built and recently re-built 72ft Sparkman & Stephens yawl, Bolero choose to give their yacht a ride on a yacht transport ship. Bolero was completely re-built four years ago and is capable of crossing oceans, but she is a familiar museum piece and the owner likes to baby her, Fasciano explains. Plus, shipping the yacht costs from half to GIVE YOUR YA C H T A RIDE! two-thirds of the price of putting together and doing a delivery. Fasciano and his crew ew from Newport to St. Thomas in November to drive Bolero off one of Dockwise Yacht Transports (DYT) eet of semi-submersible dedicated yacht carriers that delivered the yacht in a ve day trip. Since 1987, explains Catalina Bujor, the Ft.

In addition, DYTs year-round global routes for its semi-submersibles currently include the Mediterranean, East Coast USA, the Pacic West Coast and the South Pacic as well as the Caribbean. Weve also expanded our service and expertise to include lift-on/liftoff operations with third-party carriers when there is an opportunity to service an additional port that has not been scheduled for access by a DYT ship. There wasnt much to do to prepare the yacht for transport, says Fasciano. However, even though Dockwise personnel rinse the decks every day, we still decided to shrink-wrap the charthouse because we had just had it Awlgripped before we left. We shrink-wrapped the sail cover too, just as a precaution against any soot. In addition, I would also recommend having at rather than round fenders on the side of your yacht. Flat fenders are less likely to shimmy during transport. Other preparation tips published on DYTs website include securing everything aboard the vessel as if crossing on the yachts own keel, delivering the boat as light as possible meaning with empty fuel and water tanks and powering down everything, unplugging batteries and storing cables to prevent any contact. For yachts 90ft and larger, explains Bujor, a rider can come aboard. Most often this person is the engineer, rst mate or other crew member of the yacht. The yacht is supplied with electrical power and water hook-ups, which allows for light maintenance during transit such as bottom painting, detailing and work on the engine and parts. The crewmember is served three meals a day in the ships mess room, and if weather permits, they may even have a barbeque onboard the ships deck. With our newest yacht carrier, M/V Yacht Express other amenities are offered such as an atrium with 180-degree views, a tness room, a swimming pool with deck, large mess room and even a fty-person theater. Once in St. Thomas, it took less than a day after arrival to unload the yacht, says Fasciano. We ew down on Friday and the yacht arrived on Friday. The next morning we went over to Dockwise, drove her off by late morning and headed over to Yacht Haven Grande to take the shrink wrap off, wash her down, fuel and provision. We were all ready to take off and sail the next morning. For more information, visit: www.yacht-transport.com/ homepage.html Carol M.

28 ALLATSEA.NET JANUARY 2013 Diving Dive alone die alone has long been a fact in the dive world. The mere mention of diving alone caused a diver to be shunned and looked upon as a risk-taking moron. When asked if solo diving was allowed, dive operators and dive resort personnel looked aghast and told the diver that under no circumstance was solo diving permitted and suggested the solo diver look elsewhere for a boat or resort. Likewise, scuba certication agencies have historically preached the dive alone die alone philosophy never dive without a buddy was scuba law. While diving alone was taboo in theory, the reality was then, as it is today, far different. Many divers dove solo and continue to do so although the subject remains controversial and not widely disclosed. As written in a previous article, it is difcult for an underwater photographer to nd a dive buddy willing to burn a tank of air while the photographer waits for an octopus to position itself for a photo. In the same vein, if maintenance is necessary while a boat is DIVE A L ONE DIE A L ONE STORY AND PHOTOS BY BECKY A.

JANUARY 2013 ALLATSEA.NET 29 lowed, within the past few years some of the diver certication agencies introduced solo diving courses albeit somewhat reluctantly it seems. Rather than openly acknowledge solo diving occurs, the new solo diver courses are sometimes labeled self-sufcient diver distinct specialties, thus couching the agencies philosophies and long term promotion of the buddy principle and hinting that solo diving is in reality technical diving. I confess that I have made as many solo dives as I have buddy and instructor dives. That said, I rmly hold to the belief that solo diving is a personal choice made after taking a step back to consider and analyze ones true diving skills. These skills include the ability to focus on the essentials of air pressure and deptheven if becoming the rst person to ever witness Great Whites matingalong with diving experience, and the unfaltering ability to stop, assess and react appropriately in any unusual situation whether on land or in water. Because of this belief, I never have and never will suggest a diver go solo. Again, it must be a personal choice based on several carefully analyzed criteria. The basic prerequisites for enrolling in a self-sufcient diver course are that the diver is an adult with a minimum of 100 logged dives and an advanced diver certication. The required equipment includes a second mask, second air source, a sausage (aka a delayed surface marker buoy) and 100ft of spooled line. Depending upon the certication agency, a pneumatic surface signaling device is also required as well as redundant gauges. I believe a diver down buoy indicating divers in the water should also be required whether solo or buddy diving. Is solo diving more dangerous than buddy diving? Statistics do not show solo diving to be any more dangerous than buddy diving. One tangent in the dive alone die alone theory is that diving with a buddy is safer because the buddy will be there if gear fails, a diver gets tangled, suffers a medical emergency, or runs out of air. But, will that be true, especially if forced to buddy with a stranger? Buddies have been known to complicate a dive emergency by panicking and abandoning the distressed diver or not having the experience to know what to do and how to do it. The results are two divers in distress. Lastly, even though a diver may choose to become a certied self-sufcient diver, he still may not be able to go solo since many dive operators and resorts continue holding fast to the always dive with a buddy rule and insist on assigning every diver a buddy.

30 ALLATSEA.NET JANUARY 2013 Our Natural World Waterspouts can be scary and intimidating even to the most experienced of skippers. They are not as dangerous as their landbased counterparts; the tornado or twister, nevertheless, care should be taken when encountering one of these natural phenomena. According to the Oxford English Dictionary a waterspout is a column of water formed by a whirlwind over the sea. Waterspouts can be divided into two categories: fair weather waterspouts and tornadic waterspouts. Fair weather waterspouts are more likely to occur during late spring to early fall where the summer months offer the right atmospheric conditions of warm, moist and unstable air and a growing cloud aloft. As the name indicates, they typically occur during fair and relatively calm weather with little wind, in the mornings or late afternoons, and develop under the dark at bottom of rising cumulus clouds. They are short lived and will form quickly, normally dissipating within 20 minutes. Fair weather WA T ERSPOU T SBY ROSIE BURR waterspouts move very little if at all, they start from the surface of the water and move upwards; by the time they are visible they are near maturity. Tornadic waterspouts are more dangerous and destructive in nature. They form over water or start life as a tornado over land and become waterspouts as they cross the coast. They form under convective storms cells when air rises and rotates around a vertical axis (mesocyclonic in action). They typically occur with afternoon or evening thunderstorms when the warm moist air provides an unstable environment. They can be accompanied by strong winds and large seas. Hail and lightening are common with these severe thunderstorms. These waterspouts develop downward and initially form as a funnel cloud or Tornadic waterspouts are more dangerous and destructive in nature. They form over water or start life as a tornado over land and become waterspouts as they cross the coast.

This revolving motion causes a swirling mass of spray to rise up from the sea. If it continues to develop, the funnel meets the swirling sea spray and forms the column of the spout. These waterspouts have huge potential to be dangerous.Waterspout FactsWaterspouts are more commonplace in tropical regions but they can develop anywhere and are also common in many parts of Europe. The average wind speed in a waterspout is approximately 50mph (80kph) but can be as high as 150mph (241kph) and they can travel at speeds of anywhere from one to 80mph (128kph). Contrary to popular belief it is not sea water sucked up that appears to make up the spout but what studies have found to be a swirling mass of condensed water vapor. The diameter of a funnel can range from a few yards to 110 yards (100m). The myth that firing canons or other projectiles into a waterspouts path will break them up has never been substantiated.Waterspout SafetyRegardless of whether the waterspout is fair weather or tornadic in origin, all sea going vessels should take caution. Never navigate through a waterspout or move closer to it for investigation. To avoid a waterspout, try traveling at right angles to its apparent direction of movement. Darks spots on the water, followed by rings or a sudden shift in wind can be warning signs of a developing waterspout. If a waterspout is in close proximity and you are unable to avoid it, take down any sail, close any hatches and if possible stay below deck. During the summer months, in light winds, look for the telltale signs in the line of at bottom cumulus clouds or thunderstorms, or in the lines of thunderstorms that can develop any time of year. Although waterspouts are not as destructive as their land based cousins their ability to carry anything in their path makes them dangerous to vessels and small craft. Not only can waterspouts cause havoc to mariners, they can devastate coral reefs and marine organisms that are close to the waters surface.

34 ALLATSEA.NET JANUARY 2013 Racing Circuit But it didnt start out that way. The Rockstars aboard the Moorings Beneteau 50.5 La Bte nished last in the opener, a 26-mile circumnavigation of St. Maarten. That prize, the St. Rose Trophy, went to Siem Dijkshoorn and Team Statia We had a great start and then continued to move backwards throughout the entire eet, Gardner quipped. Although born and raised in Miami, Gardner admits shes unfamiliar with Caribbean wind and sea conditions. It was extremely frustrating but a good shake-down for our crew, and a great way to form as a team. After their rocky start (and a hasty bottom cleaning at Bobbys Marina) Gardner and crew went on to rst-to-nish in the Day Two, 33 nautical mile pursuit race to Statia. The following day, a series of four windward-leeward races was held in Statias Oranjestad Bay, taking advantage of brisk trade winds that twist and accelerate around the Quill. Perennial victor Bobby Velasquez, aboard his Beneteau 45F5 LEsperance aced that competition to win the Windward Island Bank First Salute Trophy. But The Rockstars were nipping at his heels. Gardner, an Americas Cup veteran, Olympic medalist, and world champion, was in her element. The whole eet started together, which was thrilling and fun. I loved the action, but I confess: we kissed (collisions Ed) a few boats. Racing against Bobby Velasquez was challenging and an honor. He pushed us, and we pushed him a bit too. Afterwards racers enjoyed Statia Day festivities on the island, including a street fair, reworks, music and dancing at the new dinghy dock and waterfront square. The Rockstars also bagged the 30 nautical mile beat from Statia to St. Barths; while the nal 18.5 mile return to St. Maarten, and Presidente Cup, was conquered by Klaas van Duurens Willow Real Estate Dutch Sailing Adventures triumphed in the Bareboat Two division; where Aquaholic was recognized with the Captain Oliver Memorial Trophy for the best performance by a rst timer. The GRR is popular with visiting sailors who charter comfy cruising boats from The Moorings and Sunsail (replete with a handyman who traveled with the eet, xing our daily boo-boos); who inevitably return each year. Van Duuren has both sponsored and raced the event since its inception, enjoying a blend of camaraderie and competition in a relaxed setting. Henk Ligthart said he enters Funfactor each year to introduce friends and novices to the sport of sailing. But participation in the Open Class has ebbed and owed over the years. Organizers would like to see more local racers compete, so to spur interest Velasquez plans to introduce a feeder regatta in celebration of St. Maarten Day. The inaugural event is expected to commence November 11 2013 and will also commemorate the 45th anniversary of Bobbys Marina. And next years GRR will include a stop in St. Kitts, according to Race Organizer Juul Hermsen of Windward-Adventures. The competitors denitely like to mix it up, and get the most out of their charters with a full week of sailing to several exotic destinations. Its a fun, friendly event with great competition, but not as costly or chaotic as some other Caribbean regattas. Gardner expects to return to defend her title, but added, The people I sailed with were great sailors. I dont take the credit for winning this regatta: it takes a team. We were here to have a good time and sail fast, but didnt keep track of our rating or scorecard. It was really a fun surprise to collect all this loot at the prize-giving, she laughed.

36 ALLATSEA.NET JANUARY 2013 Racing Circuit Excitement about the Caribbeans winter/spring sailing season revved up a notch with the introduction of the 2013 Melges 32 Virgin Islands Sailing Series. The Series, which consists of three sanctioned and one unsanctioned event in the U.S. and British Virgin Islands, will welcome nearly 20 of the top teams in the world. Global interest in the Melges 32 is running high with 80plus teams racing competitively worldwide and more than 150 of these swift-sailing sports boats built and sold. If you gauge it by the key people involved in the class, the recognized grand prix owners of the world, and the professional tacticians and trimmers, it is obvious that it is the hottest class going right now, explains St. Thomas Peter Holmberg, who along with the BVIs Mark Plaxton are among the movers-and-shakers behind the series inception. A lot of the Farr 40 owners jumped into this class over the past few years; smaller boat, hotter machine, more speed and thrill, tougher competition. Inspiration for the Series began with the BVIs Team INTACs involvement in this class starting with Key West Race Week in January 2011. From there, the idea gathered steam and started to attract the interest and support of several key players in the International Melges 32 Class Association (IM32CA), including Harry Melges himself. It was through the combined efforts of these regatta organizers and some inuential and respected key local promoters that ultimately brought the series to a reality. This series will have a massive impact upon the local yacht racing scene, says Mark Stephenson, the BVI-based CEO of INTAC Global Investments. Each of the four events will bring upwards of 150 to 200 sailors and support crew, with far-reaching economic benets to the local economy and increased long-term benets to our tourism industry. We hope that through the success of this inaugural series, the class participants and boat owners will support the possibility of this becoming a recurring biennial series, perhaps alternating between here and the more traditional winter series venues in Florida. There is even talk of the potential to host the 2015 Melges 32 World Championship here ... but lets not get ahead of ourselves.

There were twelve solid conrmations (with more anticipated) from the USA, Russia, Sweden and Italy as of mid-November, says Joy Dunigan, IM32CA administrator. Standouts would be back-to-back U.S. National Champion Jason Carroll on Argo (New York, NY) and reigning North American Champion Ryan DeVos on Volpe (Macatawa Bay, MI).

38 ALLATSEA.NET JANUARY 2013 Fishing Team Diana beat the eet and the ravages of Hurricane Sandy to win the 49th Port Antonio International Marlin Tournament (PAIMT), held October 20th to 28th out of Port Antonio, Jamaica, and hosted by the Sir Henry Morgan Angling Association. This marks the third time in the past dozen years that the Jamaicanbased team aboard the 52ft Hatteras has won the PAIMT. It was a very interesting tournament, explains Diana s owner and one of its anglers, Richard Stewart. We started out releasing one marlin the rst day and another the second day. The third day was the lay day and Hurricane Sandy pushed through with the eye passing only 12-miles away. Port Antonio is a well-sheltered hurricane hole and one that celebrity visitor Errol Flynn discovered serendipitously after he was literally blown in on his disabled yacht in 1946. The namesake Errol Flynn Marina provided safe haven for the tournaments 34 yachts and over 130 anglers from Jamaica, the U.S., France and Holland. The tournament resumed after a clean-up day and extended one day so that no time was lost from the competition. The third day we caught our third blue marlin, Stewart BY CAROL M. BAREUTHER POR T AN T ONIO IN T ERNA T IONA L BI LL FISH T OURNAMEN T DIANA BEATS THE FLEET tells. Interestingly, following the passage of the storm the shing was very good and another boat, Tassy Wassy got in one day what it took us three to do three blue marlin releases. The last day, By Pass got its third blue marlin. We were still in the lead based on time, but with 45-minutes to go there were three boats with three blue marlin. We were really biting our nails. Then Tassy Wassy hooked up its fourth sh, but they lost it with 25-minutes to go. The PAIMT is a qualifying event for the International Game Fish Association (IGFA) World Championships. Diana s win earned the team an invitation to compete in the championships set for April 2013 in Costa Rica. In other awards, Damien Moe on Kingsher II caught the heaviest non-billsh, a 28lb wahoo.

40 ALLATSEA.NET JANUARY 2013 Fishing A competitive spirit, tons of talent, and a hunger to best the third place nish earned last year led Trinidad & Tobagos team Vesper to win the 22nd St. Lucia International Billsh Tournament (SLIBT), hosted by the St. Lucia Game Fishing Association November 5th 9th out of IGY Rodney Bay Marina. Captain Gerard Frothy Silva, who has shed this tournament eight times and the last two at the helm of Vesper a 50ft Viking, shed a FAD (sh aggregating device) to the northeast of St. Lucia the rst two days. On the rst day, the teams anglers caught and released two blue marlin, and the second day a third blue marlin and a longbill spearsh. On the lay day we heard news of a great FAD to the south, explains Silva. So, after serious espionage, we found out it was located in the St. Vincent passage approximately 12 miles south of St. Lucia and 37 miles from the IGY dock at Rodney Bay. It was a good move to sh this FAD as we caught six out of the ten blue marlin we hooked on that last day of the tournament. Team Vesper s main anglers were Jerome Mcquilkin, who caught three blues and ultimately placed second in the angler category, and James Lathon, who caught two blue marlin and the one spearsh. Ayoub Kabli, Nigel Garcia, The Hon. Anil Roberts (Minister of Sport in Trinidad & Tobago) and Silva each caught one sh apiece. The team ultimately totaled nine blue marlin and one spearsh release.

JANUARY 2013 ALLATSEA.NET 41We are a very competitive team, Silva explains. We made little or no mistakes, which I was very pleased about. Marlin shing is a team effort, so when everyone does their part it usually goes well. The SLIBT is a qualifying event for the IGFA World Championships. Vesper s win earned the team an invitation to compete in the championships set for April 2013 in Costa Rica. Meanwhile, it was St. Lucias Franck Cherchel, shing aboard the 36ft Luhrs, Exodus which placed second in the boat category with a total of seven blue marlin releases, who won Top Angler with the catch and release of ve blue marlin. The captain and his team and my more than 20 year experience sport shing is what led to our success, Cherchel explains. Every day we paid attention to the shing tackle, the fresh baits, and the captains direction with the possibility of always having a strike. Nineteen boats and 89 anglers hailing from St. Lucia, Trinidad & Tobago, Grenada, St. Vincent, Martinique, Antigua, the USA, Scotland and England, collectively released 52 billsh including 41 blue marlin, nine sailsh, one white marlin and one longbill spearsh in three days of shing. In other awards, Trinidad & Tobagos Allison Devaux shing aboard Pair A Dice collected the Top Female award with the release of one blue marlin. Top weight sh that came to the scales include a 349lb blue marlin caught by Trinidad & Tobagos Francois Mouttet aboard Magic Lady a 31lb wahoo reeled in by Cherchel, and a 30.5lb dorado (mahi-mahi) caught by Trinidad & Tobagos Ryan Agar on EZ Access The SLIBT is also a qualifying event for the Southern Caribbean Billsh Circuit, which includes annual tournaments on the islands of Trinidad & Tobago, Grenada, Barbados, St. Lucia and Martinique. All boats and anglers entered in the circuit received points for attendance and scores. The boat with the most points earned throughout the year wins a custom perpetual trophy. The 23rd SLIBT will take place October 1st 4th 2013. For information, Email: SLGFA@ yahoo.com Carol M.

42 ALLATSEA.NET JANUARY 2013 CruisingSTORY AND PHOTOS BY BARBARA HART THE QUIN T ESSEN T IA L C RUISING PHO T O Recently, the editor of All At Sea asked contributors for photos that best demonstrate the meaning of Cruising. His Email said: Possibilities are endless for a photo that depicts the Caribbean cruising lifestyle. I didnt submit a photo as images of our two years at sea tumbled through my mind, and I couldnt decide which one was the quintessential cruising photo. Certainly weve all taken photos of a pretty boat under sail. I have photos of the Classic Yacht Regatta in Antigua, of the Regatta des Saintes, and of other cruisers passing by. (While I recognize there are an increasing number of folks who cruise under power, Ive taken no photos of boats motoring past.) Weve also taken photos of the sea and sky as we sail. Most of our rst year of cruising was spent sailing to windward from Florida to Antigua. Since I had the dawn watch, I have many photos of the sun rising behind the clouds, and that image of making our way toward the east depicts cruising in the Caribbean to me. But sailing is actually only a small portion of life as a cruiser. We sail because that is our preferred means of travel and we travel because we want to visit new places, so the quint-

44 ALLATSEA.NET JANUARY 2013 Cruising essential cruising shot could include local sights, such as a particularly handsome rooster in Deshaies, Guadeloupe, or just a photo of that beautiful town from the anchorage. I love the amboyant tree, and have many photos of its brilliant orangey-red blooms on waterside hills. One of my favorite photos from Five Islands in Antigua is of a small mangrove island just off the beach. Just like real tourists, cruisers hike and take in the sights, such as forts, rain forests, gardens, and animal sanctuaries. We particularly notice things that are different to what wed see at home, such as an unusual beach sign in Grenada, or the volcano on Montserrat. Ive taken photos from the local inexpensive buses found on every island. Weve ridden in family vans in Guadeloupe, in small, refreshingly air conditioned buses in Trinidad, and in unbelievably packed vans in Grenada. And like every other cruising sailor, we have quite a few photos of La Luna at anchor in favorite harbors. We like to eat and love to try new foods and, unlike most tourists or the folks on cruise ships, regularly purchase and prepare local foods. We have many photos of public markets taken from the Dominican Republic through Trinidad. Weve been hosted for an Oil Down in Grenada, and had a roti making lesson there as well. In Trinidad, we learned how Brazil nuts grow in gigantic acorn-shaped pods, actually enjoyed cow-heel soup and barbequed pigs tail, and ate doubles three times in a week. Can any photo, truly depicting the cruising lifestyle, not include the food? This cruising life is a social life. We make friends and reconnect with sailors (OK and power boaters) that weve met up and down the islands. We chat from the dinghy in the cruising version of a Maine doe-ah yaahd call. (Thats door yard call to folks not from New England.) We gather for drinks and snacks in the cockpit of one boat one night, and another the next. We attend events on shore, such as picnics on the beach, pot luck dinners, music jam sessions, and domino games. Weve been privileged to make friends with a number of island residents, enjoying the hospitality of their home. Any one of these activities with friends could be the subject of the quintessential cruising photo. We are cruisers, living and traveling aboard our own vessel; therefore, we repair the boat. This one thing may separate cruisers from all other visitors to the islands. We have many photos of my captain, EW, repairing the dinghy, outboard, auto-pilot, alternator, and a myriad other items. We have photos of the boat and lockers torn apart for any number of projects, photos of one or the other of us up the mast, photos of me mending the sails, and photos of each of us working on La Luna when she was hauled out in St. Lucia and Trinidad. Cruisers x things and perhaps take more photos of things being xed than any other group of people. Any of these could be the quintessential photo depicting the cruising life. But if I had to choose, Id pick a photo I dont have. It would show EW and me, sitting in the cockpit on a weekday afternoon. He would be practicing his guitar and perhaps singing, I would be reading an engrossing book on the Kindle, and would look up to take in the view from our deck just as the photographer captured the moment. Thats my quintessential cruising photo. Whats yours? Now sailing in the Caribbean, Barbara Hart lived aboard with her husband year-round in Maine for eight years. She has an active blog: www.HartsAtSea.com sharing what shes learned about living aboard, cruising, and staying married.

46 ALLATSEA.NET JANUARY 2013 Seamanship & VoyagingSTORY AND PHOTOS BY BIRGIT HACKLC APE VERDES REPB L I C A DE C ABO VERDE The Cape Verde archipelago consists of ten islands and is located 800 nautical miles southwest of the Canaries and 400 miles off the coast of West Africa. Even though their location makes them a logical destination for yachts on an Atlantic circuit or for those sailing from Europe towards the Caribbean, few actually stop here, because of rumors about high crime rates, unfriendly locals or unprotected anchorages. We sailed there in autumn 2011 and fell in love with the islands. We stayed for three months, which still wasnt enough to explore all islands. Those who pass by miss a beautiful and interesting sailing area as well as a rewarding cultural experience.
JANUARY 2013 ALLATSEA.NET 47 The Cape Verde Islands have a pleasant, warm climate with little precipitation. Even though the islands lie close to each other, each one is unique. The western islands of Santo Anto, So Nicolao, Santiago, Brava and Fogo with its active volcano, are green, mountainous and perfect for hiking. The long, sandy beaches and constant winds of Sal, Boa Vista and Maio attract surfers. The crystal-clear waters around the islands are rich in sh and divers can explore the numerous wrecks. The people are friendly and welcoming. They are descendants of Portuguese colonialists and African slaves. Although the ofcial language is Portuguese, many people have worked abroad and speak some English. There are few cars, people still walk and heavily loaded donkeys are a common sight on the cobbled roads. There are hardly any ofcial buses, but aluguers (mini buses or pickup-trucks) go between villages. They dont run to a schedule, so be prepared to wait a while or circle around town once youve found onethey dont set off before theyre packed with people, baskets of sh, chickens, etc. Its a fun way to meet locals, but taxis are also available. There are some medium-sized supermarkets in bigger towns, elsewhere you can nd minimarkets offering a basic, varying range of food (bring your own bags and egg cartons, they are a scarce commodity!). You can buy locally grown veggies and fruit for little money on the markets and the catch of the day is as cheap as its fresh: about $3US for a kilo of high quality tuna ... The marina in Mindelo has basic repair facilities, a fuel jetty for yachts, and water. On the other islands fuel is only available at gas stations on the road, but there are many public water hoses and if you cant nd one just ask at a private house. The passages between the islands only take one or two days and there are numerous anchorages to be discovered. As the charts lack details, careful navigation with the help of a pilot book is necessary. You should stop rst at one of the ports of entry (Palmeira on Sal, Mindelo on So Vicente or Praia on Santiago) to get your passport stamped. When moving between the islands one should always clear out with the harbor master (the clearance fee is about $10US) and check in on the next island. We decided to start with the desert island of Sal. Palmeira is a port of entry with a protected anchorage. The low, dry and brownish landscape lacks attractions, but the friendly locals make it worth a visit. Checking in at the sleepy police station can take a while and is a good way to decelerate and get into the slow, relaxed pace of the Cape Verdes. Remember, their motto is no stress. Boa Vista, just south of Sal, offers a beautiful anchorage with turquoise water, sandy beaches and white sand dunes Yacht anchored at Faja de Agua on Brava (note the line ashore); Below: Pitufa s course through the Cape Verde Islands
48 ALLATSEA.NET JANUARY 2013near the main port, Sal Rei. Boats should enter the bay from the south keeping well away from the reef. The dinghy ride from the anchorage to the small town is long and splashy, but the town is nice. So Nicolao lies 70 nautical miles west of Boa Vista. After the two desert islands its a real pleasure to see the green mountains of this island appearing after a nights sail. The rst anchorage you come to is in the bay of the little shing village, Carrial. They have neither facilities nor electricity, but some pleasant walks lead into the valley and up the mountains. The former main port, Preguia, on the western side of the gulf in the south of So Nicolao, has seen better days and can only be approached in calm weather. The best anchorage is on the western side of the island right next to the friendly town of Tarrafal, with its shops and restaurants. So Nicolao is a hikers delightdont miss the colonialstyle capital of Ribeira Brava, situated in a fertile valley surrounded by terraced mountains. So Vicente has the only marina in the Cape Verdes. Its located in the pretty, lively town of Mindelo, where you can Seamanship & Voyaging nd well-stocked markets, bars with live music (reggae and the local morno), restaurants, and the possibility to take a ferry over to Santo Anto. This is the most spectacular island with steep mountain ridges, vertical drop-offs and rugged craters. Brava, the smallest among the populated islands, lies in the southwest of the archipelago. We anchored in the well protected and stunningly beautiful bay of Faja de Agua with its cragged, black cliffs. Brava is our favorite: tiny mountain villages, friendly shermen, cobbled paths crisscrossing the islandsail there and see whether you can resist its charm!

50 ALLATSEA.NET JANUARY 2013 Seamanship & Voyaging Steve Black, the Caribbean 1500s founding father, conrmed after the start of the event that it was the rst time in its 23-year history that it actually left the Chesapeake early Fall on the US east coast is always a difcult time for weather forecasting, and this year was perhaps the best or worst (depending on your perspective) example of that. The challenge in planning an offshore voyage in the fall is the tight window between hurricane season and the winter weather pattern. This year gave the Caribbean 1500 a late season hurricane in the form of Sandy. It complicated matters in Hampton because about eight of the yachts were hunkered down on the Chesapeake (mostly in Annapolis), and owners were worried about their houses ooding. Several crews ew out from Hampton to tend to their shore-side homes, only to nd they were stranded as far aeld as Toronto after numerous ights were canceled. One yacht was safely moored in the Hudson River when the storm hit. They escaped unscathed but they missed the start of the rally thanks to New York Harbor being closed to recreational trafc. The eet, however, rallied (pun intended) and made it to Hampton by Friday, having only learned that day around noon that it was then T-minus 24-hours to departure. By Thursday evening it was apparent that another weather system was forming, this time looking more like the typical winter weather pattern. A noreaster was forecast to brew over Georgia and offshore of South Carolina, move northeast and strengthen signicantly.

If they missed this window, it looked to be at least ve days until another one opened up and, even then, that was just a guess. Had I been delivering a yacht, Id have left even earlier (and indeed many of my captain friends did just that). On Friday morning we started speaking privately to a few rally veterans and a few other yachts to gauge the feeling within the eet. Rally vets Rick and Julie Palm of the Saga 48 Altair and Miles and Anne Poor from the Tayana 55 Karina agreed that now was the time to go. By noon it was ofcial wed give the yachts the option to depart under a rolling start as soon as they felt they were ready following the skippers brieng, and the issuing of the Yellowbrick GPS trackers. Everyone was enthusiastic. The BVI eet would hightail it southeast while the ARC Bahamas eet would sail offshore to Beaufort and there wait out the weather window. The eet made good progress but the rst low pressure system, just a little blip on the weather map, strengthened beyond anything forecast and gave the eet a bumpy second night at sea. The Palms, 1500 regulars who had also sailed round the world, said it was the most brilliant electrical storm theyd ever experienced. The [rst] front was a great deal more aggressive than expected, they wrote from sea. We went through one of the most active thunderstorms Ive ever been in. Extensive lighting, pea-sized hail and rain like the tropics. Not much wind, but from all over the place. While uncomfortable, the squalls posed no real threat to the eet, and no major damage was reported because of them. And they didnt last. A day later, the Palms reported we are close reaching in 20 knots and having a great sail! Once everyone made their landfall in Tortola, any bad thoughts about the weather quickly faded. The best was coming in and seeing Maria Karlsson (coevent manager) on the dock toasting us with drinks! said Pat Fulmer of the Island Packet Cutter Loose Thoughts about the weather absolutely disappeared. It didnt even matter anymore. Rally veteran Miles Poor, referring to the decision to depart early, claimed it was the single best tactical decision the event has ever made. Martin Lindsey of the Australian agged JAC agreed. It was a little bit courageous but dead smart and the right thing to do.

JANUARY 2013 ALLATSEA.NET 57 United States Virgin Islands S T. C ROIX IN TL. REGA TT A CAROL M. BAREUTHER The end of hurricane season heralded perfect racing weather for the 20th St. Croix International Regatta, held November 9th to 11th and hosted by the St. Croix Yacht Club. Twenty-four boats from the U.S. Virgin Islands, British Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico competed in four classes, with two of these having seven or more entrants, meaning their skippers were vying for their weight in the Caribbeans quintessential favorite rum! One skipper earning a seat on the scales was St. Croixs Jack Bishop. Bishop drove his J/100, Bad Girl to a rst in the highly-competitive Spinnaker Class with a four and ve point lead over St. Thomas Paul Daviss J/27, Magnicent 7 and St. Croixs Morgan Dales Melges 24, Boogaloo respectively. We were behind by two points the rst day, ahead by ve points on day two and started day three with a fth place by being over early. We ended the regatta with a rst and second to win, Bishop explains. Magnicent 7 and Boogaloo both gave us a good ght, but when Boogaloo s SKIPPERS OF BAD GIRL & 19INI WIN THEIR WEIGHT IN RUM lifeline broke and the whole crew went for a swim, our lead increased. Also, our junior sailor crew performed well and having Peter Holmberg coaching and calling tactics rocked. The seven-boat one-design Rhodes 19 class was equally competitive. St. Croixs Peter Stanton aboard his 19ini took the lead from the start and became the second skipper of the regatta to win his weight in rum. Yet, there was some close and exciting racing in this class. Stanton describes, On the second days rst race it came down to the last boat length of the race. Chris Schreiber ( Chrys ) beat us across the line, but he hit the committee boat and had to do a penalty turn and then nish. We won the following races that day until the last, when Cece Castruccio ( Rhode Hard Barb ) beat us by sound tactics. The third day, we had the regatta pretty much locked up, though the rst race we were over early and ended up fourth. All in all most races were relatively closer than the point spread shows.

Bareuther, RD, is a St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands based marine writer and registered dietitian. St. Croixs Jim Kloss, sailing his S2 7.9, Ambivalence handily won the six-boat Cruising Class with a ve-point lead over Dedrick Luikens Creekmore 30, Aryeto The win, however, wasnt without some drama. The clew ring on the genoa broke just as Kloss and his team was setting it before the rst days start. They jury rigged but it proceeded to tear, so the crew changed to a 1999 vintage North 110% jib that they used for the rest of the regatta. The challenge the last day was steering into Christiansted Harbor with the spinnaker up and a following sea. The last few minutes going past Fort Louise Augusta were a little scary, says Kloss. We dont get many opportunities to y a spinnaker. Having my son Alec down from Minneapolis to trim the chute and call tactics was a big help. Finally, St. Croixs Llewellyn Westerman came out of a seven-year race retirement to win the three-boat Multihull class aboard his 37 Mongoose trimaran, Charis We won all of our races until the last when we doused the spinnaker and it got caught around the mast. Thats when Moose (George Silver; Bold Venture II ) beat us, Westerman explains. Even though I havent raced for a while, I sail to Buck Island every day on charters and know the wind and waters well. Finally, the regattas move back to its roots in the fall proved successful.

The event was held in November at the BVIs agship marine facility Nanny Cay, a 200-slip marina with a full service boatyard. The difcult job of judging this years competition fell to David Pugliese, chef and owner of Wali Nikiti on Scrub Island; John Albright, who has won numerous culinary awards and is now the lead instructor at the H. Lavity Stoutt Community College in Tortola; and award winning chef Kenny Molyneaux. I was there in my role as All At Sea food correspondent, judge and culinary contest coordinator. Food, its selection, preparation and presentation plays an important role in todays yachting vacation and this year the overall winner was quietly spoken Joseph Stiles. He wowed the judges with what he called Steak and Eggs: Hoisin braised short ribs with a sweet potato and egg yolk ravioli, cilantro salsa verde and candied scotch bonnets Chef Stiles spends many hours in his galley on M/Y Freedom creating sumptuous dishes. This was his second year in the contest and when I asked him why he wanted to take part, he said it was part of the job and it is fun and you get great exposure.

64 ALLATSEA.NET JANUARY 2013 British Virgin Islands Sam Morrell has scored some impressive wins regionally and top ten nishes internationally in the Optimist. Now, the 13-year-old junior sailor has set his sights on representing the British Virgin Islands in the Byte at the Youth Olympic Games (YOG) in 2014. Sailing with his family from the time he could walk, and windsurng with his father Andy Morrell, organizer of the annual Highland Spring HIHO, since toddlerhood, Sam launched off on his own sailing career at age six following in the wake of his older brother, Josh. When I rst started sailing I was sort of skeptical because I used to play a lot of soccer, but I pushed through JUNIOR SAI L OR PROFI L E: CAROL M. BAREUTHERTHE BVIS SAM MORRELL it, Sam explains. Today, I have sailed all around the world Argentina, Chile and North America. Some of Sams most impressive nishes in the Optimist include 1st place in the St. Maarten Optimist Championships, a tie for 1st in the singlehanded division of the Antigua Fun Cup, 4th overall in the Scotiabank International Optimist Regatta, and 5th in Blue Fleet and 20th overall in the Optimist New England Championships, all in 2011. Internationally, he won a race in the South American Optimist Championships in Argentina in 2012 and nished overall in the top quarter of the eet. One fun story in the Optimist shows the depths of Sams competitive drive. In his rst regatta, the San Juan International in Puerto Rico, he was in the Green Fleet and before the start of the rst race asked the race ofcer if they could wait while he sailed back to the dock to get gloves. They race ofcer answered no, so Sam started the race, then rounded the weather mark and headed straight to the dock, got his gloves on and then hopped back into the boat and nished the race. Sam plans to nish his last year of eligibility in the Optimist by competing in either the South American Championships in Brazil or Worlds in Italy. In the meantime, he took delivery of a Byte CII in November. I rst got the idea of sailing the Byte when my Dad told me about Youth Olympics, Sam explains. I plan to train for the Youth Olympics by sailing my Byte through the week and Optis on the weekend. My Dad inuences me to cross train so I play squash and windsurf too. While Sam hasnt has much Laser experience (the Byte is a cross between a Laser and an Open BIC), he has sailed a lot in the Open BIC. He will spend this summer sailing at the American Yacht Club on Long Island Sound where he will get light air Laser and Byte experience. This will be a real asset as light air is expected on the lake in Shanghai, China, where the sailing portion of the 2014 YOG will be held. My advice for younger sailors is to never give up, says Sam. Always try your hardest. Carol M. Bareuther, RD, is a St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands based marine writer and registered dietitian.
66 ALLATSEA.NET JANUARY 2013 British Virgin Islands The vintage Kelsall trimaran Triple Jack snatched back her Round Tortola Record in October, ying around the island in 2 hours, 40 minutes and 18 seconds, taking ten minutes off the existing record set in April 2010. With Miles Sutherland-Pilch, general manager of Nanny Cay, onshore calling the start, Triple Jack crossed the transit of the corner of PegLegs Restaurant and the western tip of Peter Island at 12:10pm. With an almost perfect southeasterly blowing, the boat ew up the south side of Tortola on starboard tack before bearing off for the spinnaker hoist off Scrub Island. One-third of the way along the north side of Tortola, the crew of the 34-year-old tri had to douse the chute and fetch to Sopers Hole under genoa. Triple Jack wiggled through this potentially time-sapping area of mixed currents and winds relatively painlessly before beating over to St. John. From there, it was, in theory, one straight shot back to Nanny Cay where every header had the crew anxiously looking at their watches. Owners Richard Wooldridge and Steve Davis were now feeling the pressure, exacerbated by being fed the wrong elapsed time ten minutes more than reality. However, Davis carefully worked Triple Jack upwind along the south side of Tortola nishing only 100 yards off Nanny Cays breakwater. It was a great BVI sailing day made even better by getting our record back, said Wooldridge. On nishing, the owners and crew: Steve Davis, Mike Hirst, Miles Fossey, Henry Leonnig and Tom Echle, were presented with a bottle of Drappier Champaign by Eddie Brockbank of TICO and celebrated with a team dinner in PegLegs Restaurant. The $250 entry fee was donated to the BVI Humane Society. Round Tortola is an all-comer, any-day event, starting and nishing off Nanny Cay. Competitors must attempt the record anti-clockwise and round Beef, Scrub Island, Great Camanoe and Guana Island to port. An entry fee of a $250 donation to a BVI charity of the challengers choice will include two nights dockage at Nanny Cay. The monohull time to beat of 4 hours, 15 minutes and 5 seconds, was set by Dave Wests Melges 32, Jurakan in the 2009 PegLegs Round Tortola Race. As with most sailing events, the reward is in the taking part and bragging rights but record breakers will be able to celebrate their feat with a free dinner at PegLegs for up to 15 crewmembers and a jeroboam of champagne compliments of Nanny Cay. Record breakers also get their name on the perpetual trophy, which is on display year-round in PegLegs Restaurant.

On November 6th 2012 Questel won the French slalom championship, sailing into rst place ahead of competitors Julien Quentel from St. Martin and Frenchman Pierre Mortefon. The championship comprised two events, one last April in Loctudy, France, where Questel was the winner, giving him an advantage going into the St. Malo event (a third leg planned for September was cancelled due to lack of wind). Two years ago he nished the slalom championships in second place. Finally winning rst place, Questel noted, The French title is in my pocket, and what joy to stand on the highest step of the podium. I am extremely happy. Several years ago I envisioned being on the podium at the end of the season, but for the past three years I have been aiming to win the title. I have realized my goal. This has been a very good season, I started strong and nished strong even if I was a little weaker along the way, adds Questel, whose sponsors include Starboard, Loftsails, The Collectivity of St. Barth, Sooruz, Eden Rock Hotel, and the St. Barth Yacht Club. Questel nished the season 14th overall for the PWA World Windsurng Tour. His titles also include two French vice championships in Formula Windsurng. He will spend some time in St. Barth this winter training for next seasons racing, along with Mortefon, who also trained with him under the tropical sun last year. The next event on their calendar is the St. Barth Fun Cup, February 1st 2nd 2013. Ellen Lampert-Graux lives in Saint Barthlemy.

Olympic athletes, world champions, and top names from Europe and the US, made the regatta even more competitive than in the past. Celebrating its fth anniversary, the Cata Cup, organized by the Saint Barth Multihull Association, has really come of age. The winners, Kik and Kki Figueroa from Puerto Rico (both are named Enrique Figueroa but not related) won on the nal day in the nal race. At lunchtime they were tied with John Casey and Dalton Tebo, the 2010 Cata Cup winners who took second place in 2011 and were sailing well again this year. Back out on the water for the afternoon race, the two adversaries were neck-and-neck. During the start of the race, we stayed very close to Casey, notes Kik Figueroa, an Olympic champion (he competed in four Olympic games from 1988-2004). After a good start, we kept our eye on him, but from afar, as our priority was our own race. We could see that he wanted to go fast, but at the end of the regatta we decided to get closer as we neared the buoy.

Today it was our turn. But what impressed us the most is the excellence of this regatta the excellence of the race itineraries, the outstanding soirees, and the kindness of the people of St. Barth. As long as my body can take it, I will return for the Saint Barth Cata Cup. Once again second place went to the US team of Casey and Tebo, which must have been a disappointment after fnishing second last year and being so close to the victory this time. But Casey was generous about it all at the awards ceremony and dinner. In a garden restaurant with white fabric oating above the tables, Casey said: This is the best, the most incredible regatta in the world, there is nothing else like it. Third place went to world champions Emmanuel and Vincent Boulogne, twin brothers from France. I have competed in all ve editions of the Cata Cup, said Emmanuel Boulogne. This year was the most challenging in terms of the races themselves due to conditions out on the water with unstable winds and well-formed waves. Interestingly the rst, second, and third place boats were all Cirrus F18 sport catamarans, a company founded by Emmanuel Boulogne in 1996 and represented in the United States by John Casey. Wins like this really motivate the people who work in the factory, says Boulogne, who fabricates boats both in France and Thailand. The Cirrus is a at, voluminous catamaran that remains on the surface and really rides the waves, which gives it an advantage and makes it much more stable for conditions like those in Saint Barth. He adds, The Cata Cup doesnt represent the same tension as a world championship, but this year the level was very high. Its great to sail with people like John Casey and the Figueroas who have a lot of professional experience and are very fair play. St Barth really is a paradise for sailors, theres no place else like it.

Grand Anse SUPtastic!We chose the Flamboyant Hotel as our base on the island, which is located at the very southern end of beautiful Grand Anse Beach. Every morning we would part the curtains and gaze down upon the beautiful bay for that rst glimpse of a new dawn. After a hearty breakfast, our day usually started with a paddle to blow away the previous nights rum punch induced cobwebs. Grand Anse is roughly three miles long; in the heat and humidity, paddling along this stretch of coast certainly allowed us to burn off the calories. Many of the locals had not seen SUP before, so some would holler from the beach to inquire what we were doing how could we seemingly walk on water? Local kids would try and swim after us, and the guys working in the beachside dive shops would gaze on with keen interest. After our rst session, it was then time to relax and rehydrate.Shore break actionThe southern corner of Grand Anse beach seems to attract wind driven swell on a regular basis. During our stay, some form of small shore break wave spilled onto the beach most days. Although wave heads would scoff at such small ripples, our iSUP would allow us to surf these tiny waves short rides yes, but fun none the less.Morne RougeAround Quarantine Point and continuing south lies the stunning Morne Rouge Bay (or BBC as the locals call it). This beautiful stretch of pristine white sand and azure coloured water is where our iSUP sessions would take us during many afternoons.
