8 ALLATSEA.NET MAY 2013 Editors Log The Caribbean is blessed with hundreds of beautiful anchorages that offer cruisers solitude or party central. When “rst we arrived in the islands we hit sensory overload after barely two weeks. Our landfall was Martinique and our “rst port after the Canaries, Fort de France. I guess thats why I still have an af“nity with French Islands. In our “rst year in the Caribbean there was barely an island we did not visit. Later, we headed west and then north to the beautiful Bahamas. Having cruised extensively, people often ask which are my favorite islands and anchorages, and look askance when I take time to ponder the question. Even now, as I write, I cant come up with and island or anchorage to top my list. Just when I have it set in my mind, I remember another delightful incident on another island or anchorage and the process starts all over again. What I do say is dont rush through the islands. The Caribbean is still a magical place and the greatest cruising ground on earth. I am now going to turn the tables and ask: What is your favorite island or anchorage? Describe your favorite Caribbean island and anchorage in 600 words or less and well publish your article in All At Sea magazine. Tell us why you “nd a particular anchorage, or island, special and what cruisers should look for when they visit. I was in the marine store lavishing yet more dollars on my boat when I met an English couple at the checkout. The man was paying for a new stainless steel stanchion to replace the one his wife was carrying, which was bent at a seventy degree angle. Being nosy, I asked what had happened to the stanchion, and his reply got me thinking. They are cruising aboard a 50ft catamaran, a powerful beast with plenty of sail area. While sailing towards St. Maarten, the clevis pin on the mainsail sheet failed releasing the boom. The boom crashed across the boat and the ”ailing sheet hooked the stanchion. There was so much power in the sail that it bent the stanchion as if it was made of putty, however, it did prevent the boom from running right out where it may have damaged the rig. I had a similar experience while singlehanding in mid ocean. I had tucked a reef into the mainsail and was tying off the pendants when the boat rolled hard to starboard, the sheet let go and the heavy wooden boom swept me off the cabin top and out over the sea. Terri“ed, I clung on, and when the boat rolled to port and the boom swung back over the deck, I let go and crashed down onto my back, which rather hurt. Strange things happen to stainless steel. I have seen massive pins shear off and shackles Gary E. Brown, Editor twist and break when they appeared to be in perfect condition. With so many boats starting their annual migration, nows the time to get down on your knees, no, not to pray but to inspect those pins and perhaps add a twist of wire to the shackles. In the February edition of All At Sea, we ran a story about hiking in Dominica. The article was extremely popular and several people followed the trails laid out in the story and wrote to say how much they had enjoyed it. Andy and Nicky Gibb of the yacht Intrepid of Dover got in touch to say there is also a written guide to the trails: A Users Guide to the Waitukubuli Trail Dominica; published 2011 by the Commonwealth of Dominica, priced about US$20 and available from Jay Bookstores in Roseau. They also pointed out that we published the wrong phone number for popular Roseau-based tour guide Pancho. Andy says Pancho is an excellent guide with a friendly and helpful character and that he works very hard to help all yachts. His phone number is 1-767-448-1698 (home) or 1-767-295-0525.

The event, which was held at The Bath Club in Miami Beach, Florida, welcomed Mercury customers throughout all of the Caribbean, Mexico, Central America and South America. This event was part of the activities that took place during the week of the Miami International Boat Show, which also included general sessions held at the divisions Miramar location consisting of presentations as well as face-to-face meetings with MMLACs staff. The annual gathering is an opportunity to celebrate and thank Mercurys customers for their loyalty and contributions towards Mercurys growth in the different territories throughout Latin America and the Caribbean. The event also served as a platform to present awards within different categories to those customers who truly made an impact in 2012. The reception was also attended by personnel from different divisions of Mercury Marine, Brunswick Commercial Group, Land N Sea and Boston Whaler among others.New Cruising Rally heads south from Trinidad & TobagoSeptember 2013 will see the start of a new annual rally for Caribbean cruisers. Starting from both Trinidad and Tobago, the Nereids Rally is set to pave the way for visits to two of the Atlantics least known cruising destinations: Guyana and French Guiana. Trinidad & Tobago has always been known as a safe haven for yachts during the hurricane season but yachtsmen need not remain hunkered down in an anchorage or hauled out for extended maintenance when fair sailing in agreeable weather is so close at hand,Ž organizers said in a press release. According to the release, the Nereids Rally offers sailors a safe convenient way to discover the Amazon basins least spoilt anchorages and an excellent excuse for prolonging the traditional sailing season. And with formalities expedited, and assistance with logistical matters, tours and provisioning conveniently provided at each port of call, participants were sure to have a thoroughly enjoyable adventure. Registration details and more information can be found at the of“cial rally website: www.marinaslm.com/rally Mercury Marine Latin America & Caribbean dealers from Venezuela and Dominican Republic

18 ALLATSEA.NET MAY 2013 News CARIBBEAN YACHT CLUBS, FISHING CLUBS & ASSOCIATIONS SHARE YOUR HAPPENINGS WITH THE CARIBBEAN COMMUNITYSINT MAARTEN MARINE TRADES ASSOCIATION The right stuff After much hard work and enthusiasm by the students, volunteers, the St. Maarten Sailing School and the Kids at Sea Foundation, the St. Maarten Marine Trades Associations Build Your Future project was successfully launched in March on St. Maartens Kim Sha Beach in Simpson Bay. In attendance was the minister of education, Silveria Jacobs, and administrators from the participating schools and many cheerleaders. Students of the Caribbean International Academy, St. Dominic School, Milton Peters College, St. Maarten Academy (Vocational) and the Secondary Vocational Education SBO School all took to the water for two short and fun rowing races. Although the St Maarten Vocational boat was not quite ready for the launch, their team representative joined with another team to enjoy the fun. Experiencing the event, SMMTA Vice President Lorraine Talmi said: This initiative has gotten off to a great start, the kids are so excited, and the support from the community has been amazing. We hope this will build a love for the sea that will stay with the students long into their lives. It was fun to notice the on-water lessons of teamwork, as they learned the dif“culty in steering a vessel through synchronized paddling. Some experienced a rather circular or zigzagged course; it didnt seem to matter much, even though one team crossed the “nish line “rst, all of the participants in Build Your Future came away winners!Ž The next step of this initiative is to teach the students to sail the boats and organize frequent interscholastic, as well as inter-community, competitions. The SMMTA worked hard to put the Build Your Future project in place and succeeded where similar schemes had failed. The initiative was made possible with the help of businesses, organizations and individuals who generously gave their time, expertise and “nancial support. In a press release, the SMMTA thanked the marine mentors, the businesses and the local community as a whole for such overwhelming support. They also thanked the sponsors: Aqua Mania, Budget Marine, BWA Yachting, FKG Rigging, IGY Marinas, Island Water World, Kelmador Holding, the St. Maarten Harbor Group, The St. Maarten Sailing School, St. Maarten Sails and The Windward Islands Bank. The release went on to thank the Ministry of Education and all others who pledged their support for the continuation of the project, which aims to teach the students different skills and open their eyes to the many opportunities in the marine industry both in terms of employment and recreation.

24 ALLATSEA.NET MAY 2013 Sailing Humor BY JULIAN PUTLEY GRAPHICS BY HANNAH WELCH The world continues to be in dire straits economically, we are told. But this season the Virgin Islands charter boat industry has been booming. Charlie has never seen more boats in the anchorages and more and more folks are coming to learn how to sail and eventually go cruising. So is the economy not as bad as we are told or is it so bad that people are looking for a desirable alternative? Jimmy Buffett is the champion of Caribbean escapism … hes made a fortune at it. His message is that a change in latitude will bring a change in attitude. If life gets to be too much of a burden Why Dont We Get Drunk and Screw or how about a Cheeseburger in Paradise...? Cheeseburger in Paradise actually relates to how Jimmy ran out of fresh food on a voyage to the BVI and subsisted on peanut butter and a few leftover cans. He started dreaming of that American iconic dish and when he “nally tied up at the new Village Cay Marina (1978) in Road Town, he headed straight to the restaurant. We gave particular instructions to the waiter on how we wanted them cooked and what we wanted on them … to which little attention was paid. It didnt matter. The overdone burgers on the burned, toasted buns tasted like manna from heaven, for they were the realization of my fantasy burgers on the trip.Ž The song made him an international megastar. Charlie remembers arriving in St Thomas in the early 70s. It was paradise. The weather was warm, the sun shone nearly all the time, clothes and shoes were unnecessary, rum was cheap, the girls were easy and you could buy 25c cans of cold beer from vending machines. Not only that, the Caribbean work ethic was laidback. But the one essential item was a boat: a boat on which to live and a boat on which to sail. Hey, warm trade winds blow nearly all the time … from the same direction; the Caribbean is made for sailors.Ž In the early 70s it was necessary to know navigation the traditional way … with compass, RDF and sextant. Nowadays, navigation is done for you with high-tech devices. To enjoy the boating life in the Caribbean today your expertise must change. It would be wise to know how to “nd and “x problems yourself because there are numerous gadgets, gorbles and gilhickies. If you have unlimited time and riches, you can get someone else to do it but that is a dubious option if youre miles from anywhere. If youre a musician or budding songwriter perhaps you could take a leaf out of Jimmy Buffetts book. Charlie has been racking his brain to “nd a potential hit song to make millions to “nance his sailing lifestyle ƒ and he came up with: Horsemeat Pattie, GM Pickle and High Fructose Ketchup. Irresistible, eh? But just in case this doesnt hit the No. 1 spot, he plans to “nd a rich and sexy “rst mate itching to spend her bulging bank account on their new life in paradise.

26 ALLATSEA.NET MAY 2013 Our Natural World You might have heard the rumor that coral reefs are disappearing. I wish I could say it is just a bad rumor with no substantiation, but good science points otherwise. The reasons for global coral reef decline are complex, so lets start with a basic primer on corals and then take a look at an area that has a long monitoring history. Coral are animals that have a simple anatomy consisting of a cup shaped body with a central opening that is ringed by tentacles. The entire coral contains stinging cells called nematocysts and the whole thing is called a polyp. Corals can CORAL REEFS ARE THEY IN TROUBLE?

MAY 2013 ALLATSEA.NET 27 be divided into two main types: hard and soft corals. Most corals have single-celled algae called zooxanthellae that live within the coral tissue. The coral and zooxanthellae enjoy a symbiotic relationship. Zooxanthellae “x large amounts of carbon and sugars through photosynthesis, some of which are passed onto the coral. These chemicals are used for metabolic functions and to help the coral synthesize calcium carbonate for their skeleton. Zooxanthellae also give coral their colors. The coral in return provides protection as well as a nutrient rich environment for algae growth. The relationship with the zooxanthellae is vital to the survival of the coral. Coral reefs cannot exist the way we see them today without this relationship with the zooxanthellae. Although most of the corals energy comes from the zooxanthellae, corals do use their tentacles to feed upon plankton but mostly at night, when plankton is more abundant. To better understand the decline of coral in the Virgin Islands National Park I spoke with Jeff Miller, a marine scientist with the National Park Service (NPS). Miller told me about a catastrophic coral die-off that began in 2005. During the summer of 2005 the reef-depth water temperatures at the study sites at St. John and at Buck Island, St. Croix, hit a record high, peaking in September. During that time, over 90% of the coral surveyed began bleaching. One degree above the summer maximum is enough to trigger coral bleaching. When the coral is stressed (anomalies of temperature, salinity or increases in sedimentation or pollution) it can expel or digest the Zooxanthellae, causing the coral to turn white in a process called coral bleaching (recall the Zooxanthellae give the coral their color). As seawater temperatures have warmed, thermal induced bleaching has become more common, and while bleached corals are alive, prolonged bleaching can weaken corals, causing eventual mortality from energy deprivation or disease. The 20 years of NPS monitoring data has shown an increase in reef depth water temperature at study sites around the Virgin Island National Park. Coral can recover from bleaching events if they are not severe and prolonged. But bleaching events like in the northeast Caribbean in 2005 and the Southern Caribbean in 2010, with temperatures much warmer than normal for over a month, are often followed by outbreaks of During the summer of 2005 the reef-depth water temperatures at the study sites at St. John and at Buck Island, St. Croix, hit a record high, peaking in September.

These losses reinforce that every living coral in the Caribbean is important and just a few degrees increase of sea temperature can have a profound effect upon coral reefs worldwide. Rising sea temperature and coral bleaching are not the only signi“cant threats to coral reefs; ocean acidi“cation, carbon dioxide in the air, pollution, sedimentation, coastal development, destructive “shing practices, coral mining, ozone depletion and careless tourism all contribute to the global decline of coral reefs. Coral reefs are so much more than pretty structures in the sea where colorful “sh hang out. Many “sh are spawned and fed in waters surrounding reefs. Coral reefs are home to more than one million diverse aquatic species, including thousands of “sh species. These “sh hold up the bottom of the food chain of the sea and may hold cures for medical maladies in humans. Losing reefs means losing those cures. Healthy seas and coral reefs generate billions of dollars Our Natural World through tourism and millions from commercial “shing. Coral reefs buffer our shorelines, but can only do that when the reefs are alive. Dead reefs crumble during storms and provide no protection for adjacent land, and “sh go elsewhere. Ecosystems such as mangroves, which are the nurseries for many “sh and other sea life, would be in jeopardy.

44 ALLATSEA.NET MAY 2013 Cruising The sparkling Rio Dulce (Sweet River) may not be the longest river in Guatemala but it is arguably the most famous amongst cruisers and the sweetest of them all, with no pollution from heavy industry, just clean fresh water. This makes it an ideal habitat for a myriad of different wildlife and vegetation and of course a great, protected cruising ground for sailors. Spanning a distance of 26-miles, the Rio Dulce begins at Lake Izabel, the largest body of fresh water in Guatemala. On the lakes north shore is El Finca, a working ranch. Strolling through the verdant pastures and meadows you come to a 12-meter high Agua Caliante (hot water) waterfall where you can bathe in the cool water of the river while the warm water of the springs pour down on you from above. To the east of the lake, the Rio Dulce is guarded by El Castillo de San Filipe, which was built in 1652 to protect against pirates entering this part of Central America, an important staging point for ships at that time. In 1686 the fortress was captured and burned, by the turn of the next century the fort was used as a prison. Later restored and protected, the fortress now forms part of a park. As the river ”ows out of Lake Izabel it narrows and the sister towns of El Rellenos, to the south, and the slightly larger town of Fronteras, to the north, can be found on either side. Fronteras is a vibrantly shabby town where street vendors sell their wares on the dusty road. Colorful vegetable markets arouse your senses and a plethora of small tiendas (stores), selling an assortment of odd items, THE RIVETING RIO DULCE BY ROSIE BURR RIVER, RUINS AND RAINFORESTThe warm waters of Agua Caliente make for a pleasurable day out near the north shore of Lake Izabel


MAY 2013 ALLATSEA.NET 45 will cover most of your needs. The town also boasts a reasonable hardware store and good supermarket. Traditionally dressed Mayan women going about their daily business adorn the streets. The towns are linked by one of the largest bridges in Central America designed by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. These towns have the only access roads, thus many waterfront properties along the river have a dock and a boat attached. The preferred mode of transport is boat rather than bus. Mayan women and children wash clothes at the rivers edge and surly men “sh with hand-lines under the bridge. Fast launches (pirogues) jet about carrying people across the river. From here, small hotels and some of the most reasonably priced marinas in Central America dot the shoreline as the river runs northeast. Eventually, the river opens into El Golfete (The Little Gulf), a ten-mile long stretch of bay, past the luxurious villas of Guatemalas oligarchy and home to a dwindling manatee population with less then 100 now thought to be inhabiting the waters. These great aquatic creatures are protected by Chocn Machacas Biotope (protected nature reserve) on the northeast corner of the bay where the 186-square-kilometer park, run by CECON, have waterways through several jungle lagoons as well as a nature trail running through the park and its protected forests. The river then twists and turns past sulphur springs and through spectacular scenery, which over millennia has carved its way through the mountains leaving behind the deep gorges. These magni“cent lime-scale cliffs are bordered by thick walls of dense tropical jungle. Mayans paddle about below in wooden Cayucos to a cacophony of tropical bird song and the screech of howler monkeys in the lofty vines above. Names carved into the lime-scale cliffs from centuries ago still leave their mark today. The Rio Dulce now ”ows into the Bahia De Amatique (Honduras Bay) and into the Caribbean Sea where you come across the town of Livingstone and the only Garifuna settlement in Guatemala. Local cafes and restaurants give the place a laidback feel„where not much goes on. This colorful town is the gateway between the river and the Caribbean and can only be accessed by boat. The sandbar at the entrance to the Rio, with depths of 6-7ft at MHWS, limits the number of boats that enter, making it even more appealing to visit.

46 ALLATSEA.NET MAY 2013 TWO THOUSAND MILES TO BRAZIL: PART IIIBY THOMAS TANGVALD In the “rst two parts of this amazing adventure, Thomas and his family sail south aboard their old Puerto Rican “shing boat Oasis The plan is to reach Brazil before Thomas wife Christina gives birth to their second child. Heavily pregnant and suffering from constant seasickness, Christina asks her husband to change course for British Guyana. Thomas agrees and they sail on ƒ Gaston was quite seasick at “rst but got used to it by degrees, sleeping a lot and playing with his Lego or looking at pictures in his books. The rule on board for safety is he must remain inside as soon as the anchor is up, although he can sit on the “rst step with his head out to look around. On the “fth day, we came across vast mats of Sargassum and saw an unusual amount of sea life, which made me check the still empty “shing line often. Eventually, I pulled it in and it had broken; a “sh had obviously been caught but must have been too big for 60lb line. I must admit I have never had much luck with “shing. On two different days we had periods of very light wind, so light that the mainsail would slat annoyingly with the rolls. This is unusual on Oasis since she has a generous amount of sail and the big keel damps down the rolling very effectively. About halfway, the familiar and gorgeous deep blue gave way to a duller green color. As we sailed through whorls on the edge of the North Brazil current, the blue returned for a day„ although not as deep as normal„and then it was back to green. This also marked the transition to the zone of stronger current, regularly reaching two-and-a-half knots, which would therefore set me downwind up to 60-miles a day, but more usually about 50. As the days went by my wife started acclimatizing somewhat and when the waves were calmer she would even go outside for some fresh air in the afternoon. But still, she was de“nitely rather impatient for our arrival. She would anxiously await the noon sight when I would quantify the previous 24-hours progress and would ask me over and over how much longer it might be. I would say that the current was stronger than I had thought, or that it was hard to estimate, because I cant guess what the wind will do tomorrow, or I would just say well get there when we get there, stop asking me that!

MAY 2013 ALLATSEA.NET 47an unbroken stretch of trees disappearing into the distance in both directions. Oh, to get inside the river before nightfall! This river mouth is vast, and it took another two hours before I could just make out the other bank. There was the lighthouse and, by now, in the fast fading light, I could count the ”ashes and sure enough we were right where I had calculated. On and on I pushed, in six and seven meters of water until it became quite dark and I “gured we might as well throw in the hook for the night. We spent quite a rough night anchored at the entrance in the middle of this immense estuary, with the current against the wind creating small breakers which would, periodically, wash right over the boat. At dawn I set sail and we came across a “shing boat called Natureza and I passed very close so I could ask in Portuguese the state of the tide. We carried on for two more hours and every time I took a sounding it came as six meters, so I started becoming a bit nonchalant and only sounded every ten minutes. Suddenly, we went aground! And the tide had started to ebb already. I tried and tried to break us free but after “ve minutes it became clear that we would dry. A couple of “shing boats came to satisfy their curiosity and they waded across the sand bar and gave us a visit. I asked for as much information as possible in Portuguese regarding the channel up river. Christina eventually looked at me and I knew she had “nally “gured it out; we had never been sailing to British Guyana, we had arrived in Brazil after all! On the 23rd of April, we were getting very close, the water had turned a light brown color, and I eased the sheets slightly. The boat roared ahead, in between and through squalls. We were fast approaching land! I took sight after sight to get as accurate a position as possible. I started taking soundings. Eventually the lead struck bottom. We had around 12-meters of water, and still no sight of land ƒ! River mouths can be extremely treacherous places and more so when the land is so ”at that you have to get very close before being able to verify your position with landmarks. The sun was starting to sink and I kept on putting reefs in and taking them out, in response to the many squalls, whilst trying to go as fast as possible. Eventually, land ho!

48 ALLATSEA.NET MAY 2013 Two Thousand Miles to Brazil: Part III No wonder it took two weeks to sail here. It took us another “ve days to travel with the tides up the Oiapoque River to the town of Oiapoque. The current runs generally at about four knots. The entire way is completely deserted, apart from three tiny Indian settlements of hardly 50 people. The rest is all just towering Amazonian jungle rising straight out of the water on both sides, harboring millions of colorful parrots and red ibis. There was also the eerie call of the howler monkeys, which sound a bit like the wind in a powerful hurricane. Every day we would see a dozen or more “shing boats and canoes going out to “sh or returning with their catch. Towards the end, the rising tide becomes rather weak and does not last long, so I got a “shing canoe to tow us the last few miles. Oiapoque is a bustling “shing town of 50,000 people, with shops everywhere selling everything and anything, making quite a contrast with the quiet solitude of the river. Oiapoque nets over 3000 tons of “sh a month, most of which gets trucked all the way to the booming state capital of Macap. Early on May 1st, our third day in Oiapoque, my wife woke me up and said, I can feel the baby coming now.Ž After several hours of increasingly frequent and strong contractions, she decided to go outside. I hung some sheets from the boom to preserve her privacy. She alternated between standing and squatting to help push. After an hour more, at around eight oclock in the morning, the baby was born to the sound of applause from the neighboring “shing boat. We gave him the appropriately Brazilian name of Lucio and got him his birth certi“cate straight away. So it all worked out in the end; we are now four, looking forward to our new life in beautiful Brazil. And apparently, sailing from the Caribbean to Brazil is perfectly possible after all!

BAREUTHERThere was something for everyone at the 2nd Chrysler Caribbean International Boat Show (CIBS), held at Puerto Ricos Puerto del Rey Marina, March 8 -10. Over 14,000 avid boaters from the Caribbean and U.S. came to check out the array of extraordinary yachts and nautical products at the largest boat show in the Caribbean. Puerto Rico has an opportunity to promote itself through this event as the premier nautical destination in the Caribbean, providing an opportunity for international visitors and buyers to explore and see everything the island has to offer,Ž says Arturo Guzmn, chief executive of“cer and producer of the AG Group, which orchestrated the event. Roger Casellas, of Yacht Center of the Caribbean Inc., which represents Bertram Yachts, Maritimo, and F&S Boatworks, says, Puerto Rico and the Caribbean International Boat Show should be the hub for the Caribbean as well as parts for Latin America. We are seeing more manufacturer presence and support to the local vendors.Ž The chance to advertise, reach new customers, showcase new and pre-owned yachts and support the boating industry and economy of Puerto Rico are reasons why Carli Rodriguez, of CRF Yacht Sales, who represents brands such as Viking, Princess, Edgewater, Silvertone, Davis and Egg Harbor, participated in the show. The bene“ts of buying a boat in Puerto Rico are that the boats are well kept and available at good prices.Ž Pluses for CIBS attendees are the opportunity to see the latest models, both power and sail, without having to travel all the way to the U.S. or Europe. Jim Veiga, of Atlas Yacht Sales, illustrates this with the brands he represents. Lagoon and Jeanneau are constantly innovating and coming out with amazing models at incredibly reasonable prices. Prestige is a pretty new line of motor yacht that is having incredible success in Europe. Prestige Yachts are very stylish and have performance and comfort features that you just dont “nd on boats in their competitive market range. Hunter was just purchased by David Marlow, known for Marlow Yachts. They are in their “rst year and the quality improvements to the line are not only impressive but evident.Ž In addition to viewing yachts, CIBS attendees were treated to over one million square feet of nautical exhibitions throughout the marina that showcased activities such as power boating, sailing, “shing, scuba diving, marine electronics, water sports, travel and much more. Exhibitors such as Flyboard, which market a device that lets the user ”y up to 35 feet in the air supported by streams of water generated by a jet-ski engine, gave live demonstrations. The Power Squadron hosted a seminar for kids about boating safety. Other highlights were the Ulysses Nardin International Regatta, in which over 40 sailboats raced, and the CIBS Offshore Cup, which featured over 60 racing power boats.

We had 21 boats enrolled, although three didnt race and instead decided to watch the racing and enjoy the social events. This is a good turnout for an inaugural event and is what we expected.Ž Swans were divided into Maxi, IRC-rated and Cruising classes. Light winds prevailed over the four days of racing. This made the tacticians job harder and competition keener. The entire ”eet sailed one race per day on courses set around islands, cays and rocks between Virgin Gorda and Anegada, which included Sir Richard Bransons private Necker Island. In the end, it was the USAs James Maddens Swan 601, Stark Raving Mad which won the Maxis. The victory over the Cayman Islands Wendy Schmidts Swan 80, Selene was super sweet for two reasons. First, Madden had had to settle for second place in last years Rolex Swan Cup in Porto Cervo, when a broken spinnaker in the last race dashed his hopes for a win. Secondly, it came down to Madden driving to a “rst on the last race on the last day to give his team the victory in ROLEX SWAN CUP CARIBBEAN BY CAROL M.

The USAs Philip Lotzs Swan 42, Arethusa beat the UKs James Blakemores Swan 53, Music in the IRC class. Both Madden and Lotz received Rolex timepieces and the opportunity to keep their Rolex Swan Cup Caribbean trophies for a year. Finlands Matti Rajala won the Cruising class aboard the Swan 46, Eclipse The Swan crews that didnt take top prizes did win in another way. That is, the opportunity to enjoy more great Caribbean racing. Peter Hautzagers, who chartered a Swan 45 and named it Island Water World explains, I use to live in St. Maarten, but have called Holland home for the past 18 years. Ive raced IC24s, Melges 24s and this year decided to charter a Swan. The Rolex Swan Cup allowed us to do three competitive regattas … the St. Maarten Heineken Regatta, Rolex Swan Cup Caribbean and International Rolex Regatta … in the space of three weeks. I love sailing, but I dont like to take too much time. I have six children at home.Ž Hautzagers added, The hospitality and organization of the Rolex Swan Cup Caribbean was outstanding.

MAY 2013 ALLATSEA.NET 67 LORO PIANA CARIBBEAN SUPERYACHT REGATTA & RENDEZVOUS 2013 On the “nal day of racing at the Loro Piana Caribbean Superyacht Regatta & Rendezvous, there was a palpable sense of expectation on the dock. Not only were the owners of the 20 sailing Superyachts and their guests and crews looking forward to another classic day on the water, all was to play for with victory up for grabs in all classes. With a breeze of 10 to 12 knots, the race committee chose a long course clockwise around Virgin Gorda and outside all the Dog Islands, with the Division B yachts rounding inside Ginger Island and the Division A yachts heading outside Ginger. With most of the yachts heading left on the “rst beat, the “rst real test was at the northeast corner of Virgin Gorda. Here the kites were hoisted and the yachts were set for an epic gybing battle all along the south side of the island. By the time the Division B yachts reached Round Rock, the 62m Athos was out in front with the 23.5m Wild Horses just three minutes behind. The 25.2m Sejaa was also having a good day, rounding third. Meanwhile, the Division A yachts were “ghting tooth and nail and by the western end of Ginger Island, it was Indio that had made the best progress on the run. She dropped her kite and hardened up for the reach to the Dogs a minute ahead of Salperton and Cape Arrow who were separated by just ten seconds. Hanuman P2 and Rebecca were not far behind. From the Dogs it was a “nal beat to the “nish, and it was Indio who took the “nal line honors. With so many close “nishes, there were tense moments as the yachts headed back to the Yacht Club Costa Smeralda marina while the race committee crunched the numbers to see who the victors would be.

In Division B, a strong third race … and a second bullet … meant that the classic 22.4m ketch Bolero took the series. We did well today,Ž said Ian Walker, double Olympic silver medalist and tactician aboard Salperton We were one of the most offshore yachts on the run and I think we had a bit more wind. It was a good course today … the “rst day was a reaching course, which was good for us, and the second day was a bit light. Today was a good mix.

This years trophy went to Henry Leonnig driving his yacht Firewater I have no secret,Ž says Leonnig. My boat, a Melges 24, was built to go down wind fast. And that is the race back to Nanny Cay. If all races were down wind, I would probably have a lot more success.Ž Firewater s “nish position in the Dark n Stormy was good enough to secure Leonnig third place overall in the Goslings Series. First and second were awarded to Jon Charltons C&C 41, Reba/Team Red Stripe and Kevin Rowlettes Olson 30, Rushin Rowlette respectively. It all came down to a razor close “nish between these two top contenders. Reba/Team Red Stripe s Charlton says, We were in the lead by one point over Rushin Rowlette after completing “ve of “ve races in the series. Kevin had to beat us and put one boat in between us to win outright. If he would have come in “rst and us second, we would have been tied. After the tie breaker, we both still would have been tied, and then be co-winners of the series. That is how close it was. It made it fun and exciting. It marked the culmination of doing well over a number of races, which is dif“cult to do.Ž Rushin Rowlette started a few seconds behind Reba/Team Red Stripe in the last race of the Dark n Stormy. Therefore, Charltons strategy called for keeping his chief competitor covered. We felt we had very similar speed in the given conditions, so we just tried to stay between him and the “nish line,Ž says Charlton. It worked, we “nished second and Kevin third, which meant that we won the series with Kevin just two points behind in the series “nal standings.Ž Theres always next year as far as Rushin Rowlette is concerned. We were close all the way through, but that last race just wasnt our kind of race. We do better upwind in the light wind. The concept of a Series is a great idea though as it gets more people out.

74 ALLATSEA.NET MAY 2013 In a stunning preview of coming attractions, forty-“ve boats in four spinnaker-”ying divisions set sail in the sparkling waters of St. Maarten to race in the Gill Commodores Cup, the tune-up event to the St. Maarten Heineken Regatta. The traditional warm-up series is sponsored by Gill, the regattas of“cial technical apparel supplier. On a day that appeared to have been ordered up by the St. Maarten Tourist Bureau„with crystal clear skies and an ideal 10-12 knot east-southeast breeze„the race committee conducted three windward leeward races in the waters off the islands southern shoreline. Some crews fared better than others, performing crisp spinnaker sets and douses and displaying excellent boat-handling skills. But there were also the usual gaffes and mistakes to be expected from other teams that are ramping-up programs after some time off the racecourse; those crews took advantage of the venue and the ideal conditions to get in a strong day of practice. Among the boats that were in top form and served notice that they would be forces to be reckoned with in the St. Maarten Heineken Regatta and elsewhere this year were Jan Ruperts sleek Tripp 75, Blackbird and John Wilsons 78-footer, Idea in the Gill 1 class. In Gill 2, Greg Slyngstads J/125, Hamachi ; perennial contender Sergio Sagramosos SINT MAARTEN GILL COMMODORES CUP EL OCASO STEALS THE SHOW St. Maarten / St. Martin J/122, Lazy Dog ; and Richard Wesslunds J/120, El Ocaso were all in “ne fettle.

When the preliminary scores were tallied, and the cream had risen to the top, Blackbird was the winner of Gill 1 with three consecutive “rst-place “nishes. The hard-fought Gill 2 was packed with the most competitive boats in the ”eet and when the dust settled, Wesslunds El Ocaso picked up where she left off at last years St. Maarten Heineken Regatta, when she won her class and the title of Most Worthy Performance Overall. El Ocaso was joined on the Gill Commodores Cup division 2 podium by Lazy Dog and Hamachi respectively. In Gill 3, Maelia nipped Wild Ting by a single point to take top honors in the 16-boat class. And “nally, in Gill 4, Team INTAC was the winner by virtue of three consecutive bullets, with Smile and Wave second. In third, Andrea Scarabellis Melges 24, Budget Marine/Gill was the top “nisher among the half dozen 24s in the “eld.

BAREUTHER Fleet racing, match racing and junior racing offered something for everyone at the 5th South Grenada Regatta (SGR), hosted by Le Phare Bleu Marina & Boutique Hotel, February 21 … 24. The ”eet racing kicked-off “rst, with two races each on the “rst and third day of the regatta. Match and youth racing taking place on the day in-between. Fleet racing courses took the cruising and fun classes around buoys and bays on the islands south side, while match and junior racing took place closer to shore. Winds ranged from 18 to 25 knots creating perfect Caribbean sailing conditions. Try hard and never give up! This was the secret to success for Jason Fletcher, who skippered his Albin Stratus 36, Apero to an overall win of the 2013 SGR. The crew worked well and with Rasmus not showing up, the battle between ourselves, T2 and Bloody Mary was very close but we managed to inch them out by mere seconds. I would say that a bit of luck, favorable conditions, good crew work and a solid boat is how we managed to win.Ž In the four individual ”eet races, it was Richard Szyjans Category 6 that won the North South Wines Veuve Cliquot Cup, Jerry Stewarts Bloody Mary the Westerhall Cup, Robbie Yearwoods IWW Die Hard the Netherlands Insurance Cup, and Fletchers Apero the Island Water World Cup. Frank Pearce, vice president of the Grenada Sailing Association and owner/skipper of the 50-foot schooner, Samadhi bested the Fun Class in three out of four ”eet races. This has been the second year running that we have entered this regatta,Ž says Pearce. We just had to return. Not only is the sailing great with interesting courses, plenty of wind and a good turnout, but the social events and the generosity of the organizers, have been almost without equal.Ž Eight teams battled it out in match racing aboard Moorings and Sunsail 39-foot charter boats. Competition proved tight and weather conditions challenging, with light rain plus strong breezes one minute and sunshine and windless pockets the next. The “nal match saw the winning team aboard, Bloody Mary prevail over the under dogs, Sailing School Grenada Bloody Mary (red hull) and Apero (overall winner) broad reach along the coastPHOTO: STEVE BRETT

Robbie Yearwood, Grenadas outstanding J/24 sailor and Sailing Week winner, was our toughest competitor. We beat him by eightinches in the semi-“nals.Ž Stewart adds, As the winner we get bragging rights. However, there is an element of chance in Clarks Court Bay, just like in Grand Anse. No regatta can be won by a crew that isnt enthusiastic and hard-working.Ž Fourteen junior sailors, of which six were from St. Georges and eight from Gouyave, sailed in the Junior Regatta. There were two categories of sailing dinghies, Optimist and Mosquito. In the Optimist, Noah Bullen took “rst, Ralph Francis second and Michael Derrick third, while in the Mosquito, Kevi James won, Kazim James placed second and Shakeem Robertson third. The interest in junior sailing in Grenada is on an upswing,Ž says James Benoit, who served as Race Of“cer and runs the program out of the Grenada Yacht Club. This program will provide the skills needed for the future economic development of our growing marine and yachting sectors.Ž The SGR kicked off with one of Le Phare Bleus signature free concerts. The musicians perform on a tug boat and sailors raft up in their dinghies to listen. Nightly entertainment included the Rocking Pontoons, The Wizards and the Royal Grenada Police Force Band.

80 ALLATSEA.NET MAY 2013 Panama If youre looking for a paradisiacal port stop before or after transiting the Panama Canal, then head to Bocas del Toro. This 68 island archipelago … located in northwest Panama in the Caribbean Sea, out of the hurricane belt and only 133 nautical miles from the Canal … features picture-postcard-perfect white sand beaches, lush rainforests, mangrove-lined bays and coral reefs brimming with sea life. Nature, not the neon lights of more cosmopolitan destinations, is the highlight here. This is especially true on Isla Bastimentos. Sea turtles nest, parrots ”y and two-toed sloths hang upside down in the trees in the National Marine Park, while there are no cars, roads or airports anywhere on this 20-square-mile island. Access DESTINATION: BOCAS DEL TORO, PANAMA BY CAROL M. BAREUTHER


MAY 2013 ALLATSEA.NET 81 to Isla Bastimentos is only ten minutes by boat from the charming eclectic Caribbean town of Bocas with many restaurants, bars and airport. Thats a plus for many, especially since this idyllic island offers an oasis of services and amenities for superyachts at Island Global Yachtings (IGY) Red Frog Beach Marina, part of the Red Frog Beach Rainforest Resort. What makes Bocas del Toro such a great yachting destination? Dan Cranney, Red Frogs vice president of marketing, answers, It is safe and well-protected. Its a unique secret paradise not yet discovered by all. Its remote, yet civilized, tranquil, fun and very friendly. Theres a little bit of everything here, a jungle paradise with many different islands to explore … some with people and some virtually uninhabited. Its a place you will want to stay for a while.Ž Must-see attractions are many. For example, take a 20 minute hike from Isla Bastimentos main village of Old Bank to Up in the Hill, a small organic farm nestled in the rainforest. Here, organic cacao, coconuts, tropical fruits and fragrant herbs grow. They are hand-made into food and natural body products. These, along with juices, herb teas, baked goods made with home-grown chocolate and coffee are sold in the farms small shop. Nature lovers will enjoy bird-watching, cave tours, botanical gardens complete with capuchin monkeys, and beach walking, swimming and sur“ng. Red Frog Beach is the easiest to reach from the marina. Its named for the strawberry-colored frog that lives in the nearby forest, yet the seas are a breath-taking turquoise. Watersports here and around the island include kayaking, scuba diving, snorkeling, and “shing. Those looking for more excitement can try the new zip-line canopy tour located at the top of the island. The two-hour tour features up to 1000-foot long zips, up to 150 feet high at speeds up to 42 miles per hour. Theres also a Tarzan Swing and Traversable canopy net, Treetop Challenge Course and Swaying Sky Bridge. At night, there are a number of different dining options located three minutes away by boat in Bastimentos Town. Roots is a favorite local restaurant that serves great-tasting, inexpensive Creole food. There are a few local nightclubs here too. Ten minutes away by boat in Bocas Town, on Isla Colon, there are all types of restaurants serving everything from Italian, Mediterranean, Panamanian, American and Chinese to Vegan. Bocas Town is the capitol of Bocas del Toro and home to over 13,000 people. When arriving at IGYs Red Frog Marina, captains will “nd deep water all the way in. There are a number of waypoints that make navigation safe and easy. There are 84 slips, 15 for superyachts up to 250 feet in length with a 25-foot draft, on ”oating docks equipped with 30, 50 and 100 amp power, metered water, complimentary Wi-Fi and new fuel dock. There are brand new shower and laundry facilities. Three phase 480 x 200 amp shore power for superyachts will be available this spring. A marina bar and grill are in the planning stages. Crew will “nd provisioning is available on the main island of Isla Colon. IGYs Red Frog Marina offers general labor for such as boat washing and waxing, stainless steel polishing, and interior cleaning, as well as customized yacht maintenance programs. There are a few repair technicians available throughout the Bocas and parts can be shipped, however their arrival might not be fast due to the remote location. The marina also has 24-hour security. Marina guests enjoy full access to beautiful Red Frog Beach Resorts restaurants/bars, hiking and nature trails, luxury vacation villas that come with a private pool and surf lodge with private suites. Jungle cart rentals are available for exploring. Those not arriving by boat can ”y into Panama City. Air Panama makes a 45-minute ”ight to Bocas Town daily. There are water taxis to Isla Bastimentos.
