6 ALLATSEA.NET AUGUST 2013 Editors Log Whats in a name? A lot when it comes to boats! Taking ownership of a new vessel, buyers face the daunting task of coming up with a name for their treasured possession. Its never easy and not everyone gets it right. Some names can cause a little mirth while others garner serious ridicule. Jan and I owned a famous yacht called Driac II and the name came with a wonderful history. The yacht, a 32ft cutter built in 1931 for Scots eccentric A. G. H. MacPherson, made some astounding long distance small boat voyages before the Second World War. MacPherson wanted to honor his friend, Sir James Caird, the principal donor of the National Maritime Museum in Greenwich, London, by giving the yacht his name. But there was a problem. Back then, no two boats on the UK Register of Ships could bear the same name, and the lifeboat in which Sir Ernest Shackleton made his amazing voyage from Elephant Island to South Georgia after his ship, Endurance was trapped in the Antarctic ice and sank, was already called Sir James Caird. MacPherson got around the problem by calling his yacht Driac which is Caird spelled backwards. A commercial “shing boat I owned was named Cockle Kate which I thought was rather lovely. A 36ft sloop we delivered across the Atlantic went by the name of Tropical Seas and whenever we called a freighter on VHF, they always assumed we were a container ship. On several occasions I asked why? And the answer was always the same ƒ because of the yachts name. This means people make an assumption about the boat based solely on the name! Powerful stuff, eh? You would think that no one in their right mind would call a yacht Titanic but people do. Ive seen at least three during Gary E. Brown, Editor my time at sea. And I havent come across a boat yet with wind in the name that doesnt make me think of ”atulence. Something that many people overlook when naming their boat is what happens if they have to call for assistance. Stumbling over extremely convoluted boat names while manning a bilge pump and shouting into the microphone of a VHF radio, only for the potential rescuer to insist you repeat the boat name over and over again, will not help your peace of mind. Even worse if they burst out laughing! In this edition, Barbara Hart comes up with a fun story of how one couple picked their boat name and went cruising. Fact or “ction! You decide. The waters of the Caribbean are the best in the world for diving, “shing, sailing and motor-boating. And to say the Caribbean lacks seasons is not true for thousands of visiting sportsmen and women. This month sports “shing features strongly in the pages of All At Sea and rightly so. Sports “shing forms part of a massive leisure industry enjoyed by thousands every year but its not a sport without controversy. Happily, the practices of the past are being tempered by new methods of conservation and the tag and release program has earned the industry our praise and respect. Good environmental practices not only help protect our oceans, they also make all our water-sports more enjoyable in a world where sustainability is the name of the game. Striking a balance is never easy and someone is bound to feel unhappy or even bullied by rules that limit our freedom. A case in point is the introduction of marine reserves in the coastal waters of some islands where anchoring is suddenly restricted or even prohibited. Restrictive or not, we need marine reserves; tag and release programs, Blue Flag schemes, and environmentally friendly boatyards. Only by working together can we leave a sustainable leisure industry in our wake, one that every water-sports enthusiast, resident or visitor, can enjoy. We owe it to the people of the islands and we owe it to ourselves. The alternative is unthinkable. NAME THAT TUNE See you on the water!

16 ALLATSEA.NET AUGUST 2013 MARINA NEWSCatch the International Game Fishing Association (IGFA) all-tackle world record blue marlin from now through December 13, “shing out of select marinas in the IGY network, and win a million-dollar prize! That means reeling in an Atlantic Blue Marlin heavier than the 1,402-pounder boated by Paulo Amorim off Vitoria, Brazil, in 1992. Its certainly possibleŽ, says Kevin Haddox, co-owner of Ocean Surfari charters, based at IGYs American Yacht Harbor (AYH) Marina, in St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands. Every year someone catches a big “sh.Ž Four 1,000-pound-plus blue marlin have been caught in Virgin Islands waters. These include Larry Martins 1282lb blue marlin, which set the all-tackle world record back in 1977, and Maudie Lopezs still-standing womens all tackle blue marlin, a 1,073-pounder caught in 1982. A replica of Lopez “sh is mounted at the head of A dock at AYH. Do you want to set this spectacular record and score this big money prize? Be prepared,Ž recommends Haddox. First, “sh at the right time. In Virgin Islands waters this means around the full moon,Ž says Haddox. Especially in the months of June and July.Ž Secondly, carry big tackle all the time. You never know when that big “sh will strike. Most of the time guys here are “shing with 50lb test line,Ž Haddox explains. When “shing for a world record, you need to carry 130lb test rigged with a tuna or large lures, like super plungers, all the time. And, the tackle has to be perfect. Good quality line. Test the knots and test the leader. With a thousand-pound-plus “sh you need to move up to a 500 to 600lb mono“lament leader.Ž Consider making your own special leader that is two to three inches shorter than the IGFA regulation of 30-inches. Then, when a big blue marlin stretches it during the fight, it wont measure longer than 30 inches and disqualify the catch when tested by an IGFA representative as part of the world record certification process. A big hook too is also recommended. The biggest is 12-0. Bigger than that are custom-made. Third, work on your technique. When a world-record “sh takes off, it will take all the line off the reel faster than can get all the gear in and back down,Ž Haddox says. Part of the problem is that most anglers arent prepared for a “sh like this. Therefore, keep an eye on where your drag is at all times, make sure your boat is in good shape because youll be “ghting for a long time, and make sure crew is well oiled.Ž Even when the swivel touches the rod tip the “sh will still be 30ft behind the boat. Big “sh are dangerous,Ž Haddox says. Theyre powerful. They can rip someone right off the back of the boat, so you need to be careful how you get the “sh in the boat. Ž Fourth and “nally, make the right judgment call before you boat and kill a non-world record marlin. Its hard to judge a marlins weight,Ž Haddox says. The head is steeper in a big “sh and it has broader shoulders above the pectorals. In addition, a good rule of thumb is that if the “sh measures longer than 120-inches, it should be in the 1000lb range.Ž Destinations selected for the IGY Marinas Million Dollar Sport“sh Challenge include: American Yacht Harbor, St. Thomas, USVI; Montauk Yacht Club, New York, NY; Blue Haven Marina, Turks & Caicos; La Amada Marina, Cancun, Mexico; Marina Cabo San Lucas, Cabo San Lucas, Mexico; and Rodney Bay Marina, St. Lucia, WI.

18 ALLATSEA.NET AUGUST 2013THE LIGHTER SIDE OF WATERMAKERS BY CAPN FATTY GOODLANDERSailing Humor Once upon a time when a sailor wanted to cross an ocean, hed bring some water with him and drink it when thirsty. This worked well but, ultimately, was deemed too simple. It was decided by SALT (Senior Advisers to Landlubbing Technicians) that an expensive watermaker should be installed aboard every serious cruising sailboat. How do watermakers work? Well, they dont make water! Instead, they subtract salt. How? By tremendous pressure„often over 800 pounds per square inch. Want more technical details? Okay! The watermaker manufacturers are greedy, and they want to squeeze every penny of pro“t out of their customers as possible. This ultra hard squeeze is also used to force the seawater through a very, very “ne “lter, which strips off the salt molecules. ƒ isnt science fun! The beauty of the watermaker is„on a retail level„that it doesnt work very well. It requires high pressure, which is very energy-demanding. Plus, there are often sophisticated internal electronics, and we all know how nicely they hold up in a salt water environment.

This results in a very expensive unit, which is ƒ well, impossible to even understand if it is working correctly or not. And thats just the beginning of Our Tale of Watery Woe. Nonetheless, the idea (and marketing slant) is that„once you purchase a watermaker, your drinking water problems evaporate forever. Ha! My friend Wally D. Gulper recently purchased a brand new unit. He just walked into a chandlery with a sailbag full of cash, and said, I want to buy a watermaker.Ž No problem,Ž said the grinning guy behind the counter. We recommend the In“nite Model. It is just $7,000 US, no credit cards, and no receipts.Ž That sounded pretty good to Wally. Okay,Ž said Wally D. Gulper and counted out the cash in used $20 bills.

22 ALLATSEA.NET AUGUST 2013 Sailing Humor BY JULIAN PUTLEY GRAPHICS BY HANNAH WELCH Isnt it strange how some people can be so lacking in culture that they come out with the most personal questions at the most inopportune moments … and these to someone they have only just met. Sometimes personal questions can be taken to mean a personal response is expected. Heres an example: Joe was the captain on a large catamaran some weeks ago and a young mixed crowd of unattached guests were his passengers. On only the second day out, one of the girls asked him, ƒand how old are you?Ž Sometime later she approached him again and asked, quite pointedly, Do you think itll rain tonight? Im going to sleep on deck.Ž Perhaps Joe should have been a bit more discrete but during happy hour he sidled up to the inquisitive guest and put his arm round her waist and gave her starboard rump a friendly squeeze. This resulted in a heated exchange of vitriol and did not set the stage for the rest of the trip. The whole episode brings to mind the following quote: If a man talks dirty to a woman its sexual harassment, but if a woman talks dirty to a man its $3.50 a minute. Many couples on crewed charter yachts dont last because they lack the important attributes of tolerance, patience and diplomacy. Charlie often mutters under his breath after the third request is made to close all hatches (prior to sailing, of course) and does it himself. The same applies to stowing items likely to crash to the cabin sole underway, putting dishes away, not just leaving them in the rack, turning off lights and fans when leaving the cabin etc., etc. Many captains liken their job to a baby sitter, nanny or geriatric care giver. Im surprised they can even wipe their own ass,Ž exclaimed Joe after one particularly tiresome charter. Patience may be a virtue, but why isnt hurry the f**k up a virtue.Ž One of Charlies skills as a successful yacht captain is his ability to always turn a conversation from a negative tone to a positive one. The whingeing and responses may go like this. Q: Its too windy.Ž A: Perfect for fast sailing.Ž Q: Its not windy enough.Ž A: Perfect for snorkeling.Ž Q: The fridge isnt cold enough.Ž A: Better eat the steaks tonight.Ž Q: Were out of water.Ž A: Aaah, thats why everyone smells so fresh.Ž A good charter captain like Charlie is expected to provide entertainment as well as everything else and during happy hour there are some questions that always come up, like: How long have you been sailing? What are the biggest seas youve ever been in? What is the biggest boat youve ever sailed? The anticipated answers are to appease the fears of the neophyte sailors/guests. One answer to a question that is somewhat unexpected, What was your most frightening experience?Ž Answer: When I found out that the girl I brought back to my boat in Singapore was a transvestite.Ž PS.

On the first day of fishing, says Uno Mas  Captain Tom Lynskey we headed to an area out east called the hot dog and caught two white marlin.

The OUPV allows the operator to work aboard an uninspected passenger vessel that carries no more than six passengers. The boat can be up to 65ft or 100 gross tons. A Masters license is issued by tonnage with the holder being able to operate an inspected vessel up to the tonnage of their license (typically 25, 50, or 100 tons). The main difference between the OUPV and the Masters is that the Master can operate an inspected vessel which can carry more than six passengers. In addition, a non-U.S. citizen with a green card may only hold an OUPV. Other countries have their own licenses, but a USCG license is required to operate a U.S. ”agged vessel. OnDecks Anthony says, RYA/MCA certi“cates include Day Skipper, Yachtmaster Offshore and Ocean Yachtmaster, of which the latter with a couple of other quali“cations gives you a Captain 200 tons anywhere.Ž Time required for obtaining either a USCG license or RYA/ MCA Yachtmaster certi“cate depends on “rst meeting sea time or mileage requirements.

The Yachtmaster necessitates candidates to have logged at least 30 days, two days as skipper, 800 nautical miles and 12 night hours. After this, there is 56 hours of classroom instruction for a USCG OUPV license or 80 hours for a Masters license and up to three months of training for an RYA Yachtmaster. Classroom instruction for a USCG license consists of four subjects: Rules of the Road, Chart Plotting, Navigation General, and Deck General. These are covered by a mix of lecture and practical classroom exercises,Ž says Alport. Chart plotting requires the students to master the techniques of coastal navigation with a thorough understanding of the use of charts, charting tools, light lists, and other reference materials.Ž What about cost? Ocean Yachtmaster with ancillary courses would be about $5000 assuming someone had the experience,Ž says OnDecks Anthony. For a USCG license, expect to pay about $750 for an OUPV course or about $1000 for a Master. However, there are various other requirements that also add to the cost. For example, all candidates need to take USCG approved First Aid and CPR training. They also need to take a physical exam and drug test. There are also application and evaluation fees. I would remind folks that a captains license could lead to a career where $1000 a week would be entry level pay,Ž says the Captain School USVIs Alport. Many captains in the industry are earning six-“gure salaries.Ž Carol M.

38 ALLATSEA.NET AUGUST 2013 Tips & Tricks BOAT BOTTOM BLUES STORY AND PHOTOS BY DEVI SHARP We have owned Arctic Tern an Island Packet 45, since December 2005 and have applied the antifouling on the bottom since the “rst haul out in the summer of 2006. I have always been lucky about getting advice from the experts in the yard even when we choose to do our own work. We were satis“ed with our work and the bottom paint until the summer of 2008 when small blisters appeared under the fresh paint at the water line and on the rudder. We consulted with the paint specialist at Peake Yacht Services in Trinidad and were relieved that the problem was only as deep as the paint. These were not osmosis blisters; our blisters were a Applying the second coat of Tough Stuff


AUGUST 2013 ALLATSEA.NET 39result of the many layers of paint and wear at the waterline and rudder. Blisters form when the volatile chemicals of the bottom paint do not dry evenly, especially in the areas of high wear. After the paint dried we would open the blister and sand the spot until the edges were fair. The paint and coatings specialist said that we should live with it as long as we could since the only remedy is to remove all of the paint. In 2011 we decided to remove the paint and had Peake Yacht Services do the work of grinding 16 years of paint off the bottom. It was a really hard job and we are glad that we did not have to do it. We did look into chemical strippers but the ones that we would have used were not available in Trinidad. Grinding off bottom paint is tedious and requires a high degree of skill. The difference between removing the paint and cutting through the gelcoat can be a mere few thousandths of an inch. I am so glad that I did not take on that job. Sixteen years of bottom paint does not come off easily. When the workers were done with the sanding and grinding, the hull was as smooth as a baby boats bottom. First we inspected the bare “berglass for any signs of osmosis or any other issues. We found nothing of concern so we prepared to apply Seahawk Tough Stuff as a barrier coat. You need a day with a good forecast for no rain and it really helps to get all of your supplies ready and in your work area.

Taping around the stands after the second coat of Tough Stuff


40 ALLATSEA.NET AUGUST 2013pensive when you consider the cost of supplies and our labor. We had already taped the waterline and propeller and while my husband, Hunter, started the mixing process I wiped the bottom down with acetone, including the bottom of the keel. We used rollers to apply the Tough Stuff and a foam brush for the corners and parts of the rudder. Tough Stuff is designed to be permanent once applied and I still have some on my watch, so plan accordingly. The directions for Tough Stuff tell you to apply the “rst coat to your clean surface and begin application of the second when the “rst coat is still tacky. Hunter began the 20 minute mixing process while I “nished the brush work on the “rst coat. The “rst layer of bottom paint should be applied when the second layer of Tough Stuff is tacky so, with just enough time for a drink of water and a bit of food, we began the clean-up of the Tough Stuff and preparation for the Seahawk Islands 44. Before applying the antifouling we taped a two inch area around the jack-stands to ensure that when we moved them the bare area is surrounded by Tough Stuff. That process took us a few intense hours, but the hard work was done. After a day or two we applied another layer of bottom paint. In another day or two we had the stands moved and plastic placed between the fresh paint and the Jack-stands. We peeled off the tape and repeated the two layers of Tough Stuff and a coat of bottom paint and “nally the last layer of bottom paint. We hope that this bottom job will give us a good foundation for many years.

42 ALLATSEA.NET AUGUST 2013 Our Natural World LOVELY WORMS BY BECKY A. BAUER Someone says worms and what comes to mind? Probably not anything lovely what with hulls riddled with worm holes, hysterical little sisters chased by big brothers holding earthworms or coming ashore after a swim to “nd ones legs covered with leeches. With over 22,000 species of annelids (segmented worms) in the world, one can conjure up all sorts of horrors and tall tales. Of the 22,000 species of worms, roughly 1,000 are marine worms with many more species waiting to be discovered as the technology necessary to explore the mysteries of earths waters advances. Although it is unlikely we will be invited to take a submersible 8,000 feet under the Paci“c to see patches of four-feet tall red feathery tubeworms living around hydrothermal vents, we can see some rather spectacular marine worms while wading and swimming. Orange/Bearded Fire WormPHOTO: BECKY A. BAUERFire WormPHOTO: NOAA


AUGUST 2013 ALLATSEA.NET 43Found around the world not only in the tropics but also in cold water, the evolution and diversity of marine worms is nothing short of spectacular. Imagine kayaking an Alaskan lake and seeing a large purple worm with a snake-like head swimming beside the kayak, or, exploring the oceans depths expecting to “nd no living thing yet discovering worms that thrive in 400 degree-plus highly acidic water. One of the more interesting looking marine worms we encounter in the Caribbean, the tropical western Atlantic and the Gulf of Mexico is the bristle worm, aka “re worm. They are found up to 450 feet deep, on reefs as well as along shallow shorelines, in rocky areas, muddy bottoms, and ”oating around in surface debris. In these waters, the most common is the Orange or Bearded Fire Worm. Looking much like a reddish orange caterpillar/centipede hybrid with tiny pods of white fur along each side, woe betide the uninformed person who attempts to pet one. They are called “re worms for a reason! Their white fur is not the least bit soft. In fact, the furry looking hairs are actually bristles thus their other common name, bristle worms. Accidentally step on, brush against, or foolishly pet an Orange Fire Worm and one suffers a patch of poisonous bristles embedded in his skin with a “ery burning sensation radiating from the affected area that may last several hours. The poison contained in these bristles is a neurotoxin that may also cause dizziness and nausea. Nonetheless, “re worms are amazing creatures living in our seas for approximately 300 million years and little changed based on rare fossil evidence. Classi“ed as segmented worms, the adult Orange Fire Worms body, except for the head and terminal or last segment, is composed of multiple identical segments, each segment sporting a pair of parapodia, or feet, covered with chaetae or bristles. When the worm is not stressed, the chaetae lie close to the feet but when threatened or harassed the chaetae are raised in defense giving the worm a furry appearance. The Orange or Bearded Fire Worm is carnivorous feeding upon both soft and hard corals, sponges, shell“sh, small shrimp and small squid as well as detritus. They in turn are fed upon by cone shells and various “sh such as wrasse and mullet. In fact, “shermen in certain areas dread the “re worms annual reproduction rituals as millions rise to the surface, where local “sh gorge themselves and could care less about an anglers baited hook. Once a year, in early spring, the Orange Fire Worms reproduce in a spectacular display. They rise to the surface as the females take on a greenish phosphorescing glow. This glow draws in the males who begin to ”ash like tiny strobes and as male meets female, their reproductive segments drop off and combine in the water where larvae hatch and drift out to sea to continue the life cycle. What to do if one “nds himself on “re with a patch of embedded “re worm bristles? Since the tiny bristles are quite brittle, its dif“cult to completely remove them but start with some very sticky tape and place the tape solidly over the bristles and pull. Follow the tape application with rubbing alcohol to help break down the toxin; however, expect some discomfort to remain. If other symptoms other than irritation at the wound site occur, its best to seek treatment as soon as possible from a medical professional.

We had the chance to explore the entire peninsula on foot and by bicycle. Sailing into glorious San Juan Harbor, past towering fortress walls, green hillsides dotted with fascinating architecture, cranes at work building new and restoring old, and a bay bustling with commercial vessels, cruise ships, sailboats, mega yachts and square riggers, we found a wonderful home base for exploring by taking a slip in Club Nautico de San Juan (CNSJ).

This is the first time Gramm has sailed in the Virgin Islands. The clinic helped me to understand the pattern of winds here and get use to them, and that helped me during the regatta,Ž Gramm says. My overall strategy was to stay consistent, play it safe and dont do anything risky that would push me deep into the ”eet.Ž British Virgin Islands ten-year-old Rayne Duff won the age ten and Under White Fleet. Hiking out was something I learned to do better in the clinic,Ž says Duff, who “nished second in this division last year. Hiking was really important in the regatta because it was windy.Ž The trophy for Top Girl was awarded to 14 year-old Paige Clarke, from St. John, USVI. Clarke also “nished an impressive 8th overall. I felt more con“dent this year,Ž says Clarke, who has the experience of a number of continental Optimist championships now under her belt. I called every shift and always saw what was coming.Ž A record 33 junior sailors competed in the Green or Beginner Fleet this year, which bodes well for the future of the sport. In the end, it was ten-year-old Will Jackson from the Cayman Islands who emerged victorious. I like the heavy wind,Ž says Jackson. Today, when the wind dropped mid-morning, I went from going fast to slowish-fast. Still, I had a lot of fun and met a lot of new friends.Ž The USVIs Clarke also won the Pete Ives Award, given for a combination of sailing prowess, sportsmanship, determination and good attitude both on and off the water. Meanwhile, it was the USAs Thomas Rice who earned the Chuck Fuller Sportsmanship Award. A total of 113 sailors competed in the Advanced Red, Blue and White Fleets and beginner Green Fleet. The Advanced Fleets completed ten races and the Green Fleet a total of 18 races over the three days of competition.

AUGUST 2013 ALLATSEA.NET 57 United States Virgin Islands CARLOS AGUILAR MATCH RACE SET FOR NOVEMBER 2124The 6th Carlos Aguilar Match Race (CAMR) will set sail in St. Thomas scenic Charlotte Amalie harbor on November 21-24 2013. New this year,Ž says regatta director Bill Can“eld, we will have three days of racing instead of four, which is normal in other events like this held around the globe, and eight boats instead of six to make it more exciting on the course and give us time to run a double round-robin, semis and “nals.Ž The ten Open teams, which represent a combination of highly ranked men and women and active successful match racers from the past, will put their skills to the test in fastpaced highly-competitive sailing action along the spectator-friendly Charlotte Amalie waterfront. Invitees to date include defending champion Sally Barkow from the USA (10th ranked Women, 26th ranked Open), the USAs Stephanie Roble (35th ranked Women), Dave Dellenbaugh and Don Wilson (33rd ranked Open), and the USVIs Taylor Can“eld (5th ranked Open) and Peter Holmberg. At least four slots are still available and skippers are welcome to request an invitation. Past winners of the CAMR read like a Whos Who of sailing: the USAs Sally Barkow and Finlands Staffan Lindberg won the Open Division in 2012 and 2011, respectively, while the USAs Genny Tulloch triumphed in 2008 and 2010 and Frances Claire Leroy in 2009 in the Womens Division. Back in 2008, the USVIs Taylor Can“eld was victorious and in 2009 it was the turn of Peter Holmberg. From across the pond, Portugals Alvaro Marinho/Seth Sailing Team won the Open Division in 2010. The CAMR is known for introducing young sailors to the sport, working cooperatively with the V.I. government and V.I. Department of Tourism in its efforts to get more kids out on the water. In 2013, each Open team will have a V.I. high school (under age 18) sailor as a member. The CAMR is an International Sailing Federation (ISAF)provisional Grade Two event. The Virgin Islands Sailing Association (VISA) is the organizing authority for the CAMR, namesake for the late Carlos Aguilar, who was an avid sailor and match racer. The Chicago Match Race Center (CMRC) is a major sponsor. The Chicago Match Race Center is pleased to be a part of the 2013 Carlos Aguilar Match Race,Ž says Tod Reynolds, program director at the Chicago Match Race Center. When Lake Michigan freezes in the winter and sailors turn their attention south, the Carlos Aguilar Match Race in St. Thomas has been one of the go-to events. We are proud to support the event this year and to help with the expansion from six IC 24s to eight to allow for even more match racing action on the harbor.Ž For more information and Notice of Race, visit: www.carlosmatchrace.com Report by Carol M.

60 ALLATSEA.NET AUGUST 2013 St. Maarten / St. Martin HEINEKEN LIGHT OPEN LASER CHAMPIONSHIPS BY ROBERT LUCKOCK VAN OTTERDIJK, BARSHI, BATTLE FOR SUPREMACY Ari Barshi of the Dominican Republic overcame a spirited challenge from 17-year-old Kevin van Otterdijk from Curacao to win the 24th Heineken Light Open Laser Championships overall in Orient Bay, St. Martin, on June 8-9. Racing in the “ve-boat Standard Class, Barshi, a European Masters Champion, proved that age and experience can still prevail over zeal and raw talent of youth. First and second places were decided in the last race on Sunday when Ari propelled himself off a wave to beat overnight leader Kevin in a close “nish. Also in the mix were top contenders and former winners St. Maartens Frits Bus, Benoit Meesemaecker from St. Barths, and newcomer Carlos Palambo from Argentina. Barshi took “rst in the Standard Class followed by Kevin van Otterdijk in second. The winner from three years ago, Benoit Meesemaecker from St. Barths placed third. Very light wind on Saturday was bad news for the heavyweight sailors but Frits Bus in the Masters category surprised the other favourites by winning the “rst of six races while Meesemaecker struggled. Bus went on to lead after the morning races on Saturday until he was overtaken by Barshi. An excellent turnout of 26 boats made for an impressive spectacle on the water. Sailors were divided into Standard, Radial, Masters, and one entry, Joanna Looser, for a 4.7. The combination of light and heavy air suited all the sailors, from 6-10 knots on Saturday, increasing to 15-18 knots on Sunday and veering to the North East. Argentinean Carlos Palambo went on to win the Masters category, one point ahead of Island Water Worlds Frits Bus and third placed Jorge Abreu from the Dominican Republic. Eight boats contested the Masters. The Radials was a hotly contested class with eleven boats in contention. It was no surprise that the hugely talented Rhne Findlay captured the win with ease. Second in this class went to Cindy Brin with Robbie Ferron in third, Ernst Looser fourth, and Andrew Rapley “fth. Sailors were very appreciative of Race Of“cer Laurey-Ann Findlay who was assisted by Alfred Koolen and mark layer Rien Korteknie. At the prize giving, organisers thanked sponsors Heineken Light, Club Orient, Papagayo Restaurant, Sunsail, and Sint Maarten Yacht Club whose generous contributions make the event possible every year.

64 ALLATSEA.NET AUGUST 2013 Carriacou IN STITCHES STORY AND PHOTOS BY JANET HEIN The saying big things come in small packages certainly describes Carriacous sail loft, cleverly known as In Stitches. Its a three-person show, owned and operated by Andy Smelt, which can make or repair pretty much any sail that blows into Tyrell Bay. Smelt is a well seasoned sail maker but those multi faceted skills were acquired after some amazing adventures, “rst as a treasure hunter and later as a pirate. Arrr. The hunt began in the late 1970s after crossing the pond from the UK on his Wharram catamaran. After a few island stops, and a wild sail past a spitting volcano, Smelt landed in Antigua. Like all good cruising sailors, he needed money to support the habit so he signed on with a treasure seeking, converted mine sweeper bound for the Dominican Republic. The booty they eventually found was three tons of silver from the wreck of the Nuestro de la Conception and somewhere in the middle of that adventure he was hired to play a movie pirate with Michael Caine in The Island. A string of more earthly jobs followed: as delivery crew; a yacht captain; and helping to start Antiguas Crabs Marine. That was good fun,Ž he said, I met Don Street then, great times those were.Ž In 1994 Smelt sailed to St. Barth where he joined a friends sewing shop. Thats where I learned to make sails,Ž he explained. Since St. Barth doesnt boast a secure hurricane hole, he sailed south each summer, sometimes to Trinidad, until in 1999 the boat was wrecked off Barbuda. No problem for a retired pirate; he quickly found his current vessel, Yellow Bird at Crabs Marine. He used to race her there, winning every event he put his keel into. It looks like a shoebox,Ž he joked, but she sails like a witch.Ž It was during those trips south that he kept bumping into Andy Smelt hard at work in the sail loft The famous motorcycle and sidecar

66 ALLATSEA.NET AUGUST 2013 Carriacou Then there are the boats from Petite Martinique and Carriacou itself. We do all the racing sails for the local boys,Ž said Smelt. Thats good fun. Its a shared responsibility to design good sails, cause theyve got to win. They love to come in the day before regatta and have their sails done.Ž Usually the local sailors cut the cloth and Andy and crew drive the machines. In Stitches is not a large loft but crammed in that space are half a dozen machines, cloth, cushions, “ttings, zippers and piles of projects that are coming and going. We dont handle high tech sails, but we did a repair on a sail from a 50-foot cat the other day. Took four guys to lift it.Ž One member of his team does “ne canvas and cushions. She loves it,Ž he exclaimed, pointing out bolts of colorful canvas and upholstery fabric. Hopefully the future holds a storm proof building for In Stitches because when a strorm threatens everything must be moved to a concrete bunker. One hurricane yanked up the roof, messing up the place until all the needles were lost in the haystack. A tougher structure would also be a handy place to keep Smelts island ride, an antique BMW motorcycle and sidecar. Sailor, writer, teacher Jan Hein tacks between the Caribbean and Washingtons Puget Sound with a boat and a life on both ends. sleepy Carriacou and liked what he found there, or perhaps it was all that wasnt there that he enjoyed the most. No jumbo hotels, cruise ships rarely visited, and the island was lacking a sail loft. His partner, who loved the higher RPM of St. Barth, was dubious. I told her it was perfect, it had everything; lots of international boats; good music, nice people.Ž She fell for it and in 2001 they made the move, sewing machines and all. Working from the boat was not an option, so they hooked up with Jerry at Tyrell Bay Haul Out who helped secure a place that had potential. That wooden structure, which sits on the main thoroughfare of Harvey Vale, was adjoined conveniently to the bar next door. It had been a community center but when Smelt took up residence, it was an empty shell with a pool table. All around the big square room, closed shutters held drawings and paintings by the legendary sailor Paul Johnson. Beautiful scenes of boats in the bay and bars on the beach, each one lending a perfect air of art gallery to In Stitches. I had assumed that if someone needed a sail made or repaired they would seek out one of the big lofts, but not so; the Carriacou loft is busy all year. In the winter they get a lot of boats coming over from the ARC or down for one of the Southern Caribbean races. Cruisers, who constantly stream in and out of the anchorage, always need a stitch or two and bring even more business during the summer. The view from the office window!
