10 ALLATSEA.NET OCTOBER 2013 Editors Log Welcome to All At Sea Caribbean and our annual look at whats going on in the effervescent world of charter. I chose the adjective effervescent because thats what a charter should do, it should zz. As a guest, one who has paid a lot of money and probably traveled from afar to join the boat, nothing you experience should leave you feeling at. Now, that puts an awful lot of pressure on the charter brokers and their captains and crews. And so it should. I cant think of another vacation that comes with such high expectations and Im happy to say that the Caribbean has risen to the challenge and offers some of the best charter breaks in the world. And how that world has changed! I worked in the charter trade both as captain and crew in the days of yore before Steve Jobs and Bill Gates changed the world, and the way we look at it, forever. I dont think I would survive as a charter boat skipper today as I have too many rough edges. The kind of charters that came my way were all about cases of beer and rum consumed, burgers were haut cuisine and my guests champion drinkers who only wanted to sail to another island once they had been thrown out of all the bars of the one we were on. There were no seles to Email home and bragging about your vacation in paradise meant sending a postcard. Water sports involved seeing who could pee furthest from the stern rail And the guys were almost as bad. I hope there are still a few charters like that around (should I need a job) but I doubt they prosper. With a nod to nostalgia its time to see whats on offer in 2013. In this months Chartering Special we preview the top Caribbean charter boat shows, take a look at provisioning and charter trends, and offer advice to those thinking of chartering a bareboat for the rst time. We round-off our Special by interviewing a young couple who started their own day charter business in Anguilla with a unique boat. Regatta season is around the corner and local sailors and sailors from around the world are planning their racing schedule. The Caribbean has a full calendar of events and attractGary E. Brown, Editor ing competitors has become something of a blood sport. Sir Robbie Ferron has organized hundreds of regattas and sailed in many of them. In Racing News, he takes a candid look at what it takes to build, maintain and grow a successful regatta. Outspoken and often controversial, Ferrons opinion carries a lot of weight. We all want to see a successful Caribbean regatta season but has youre regatta organization got it right? See Who will come to your party on page 28 to nd out. In the second part of a major series, Doug Simmons looks at the pros and cons of buying a center console powerboat and discusses hull shape. With lots of boats to choose from, new and used, it is critical to your boating enjoyment that you choose wisely. Simmons has done the research and his article is the rst step in nding the right boat for your preferred cruising grounds. In his next article, he will focus on center console construction and there is plenty the discerning buyer needs to know. In September the Caribbean lost one of its great characters with the death at 91 of Tony Snell. Tony will be remembered by anyone who dropped anchor off Bellamy Cay in the BVI and visited the Last Resort Restaurant. If you wondered what was going on at the Last Resort then the laugher was sure to tell you. I visited Bellamy Cay many times and although I knew Tony as an entertainer, enjoying his show from the audience, I never knew his amazing history. In BVI News, Julian Putley pays tribute to this remarkable man. AND THE CHARTERS THEY ARE A CHANGINSee you on the water!

CONGRATULATIONS TO BRUCE AND CINDI AND THANKS FOR READING ALL AT SEA This sets a new HIGH for ALL AT SEA Bruce Chilson has taken All At Sea to a new level: Uhuru Peak, the summit of Mt. Kilimanjaro in Tanzania. Bruce and Cindi Muggli reached the summit on June 23 where, instead of unfurling a ag, they unfurled the Caribbeans favorite waterfront magazine. Bruce is the owner of Bluebeard Charters in St. Maarten and when he takes a vacation, he doesnt do things by halves. He told the editor that although it was a strenuous climb, one of the most difcult parts was outtting for the adventure as not many Caribbean stores sell mountain climbing gear or gear capable of dealing with three different climates. The editor is delighted to report that Bruce had no problem nding a copy of All At Sea to take with him on the ascent. Send us a picture of you reading All At Sea and you may win a free subscription.

22 ALLATSEA.NET OCTOBER 2013ME AND PAPEETE BY CAPN FATTY GOODLANDERSailing Humor Each evening, my wife Carolyn and I stroll the streets of Papeete in search of adventure. We almost always nd it. Tahiti is an enthralling isle, the only place on our planet where so many sailors jump ship that you have to post a bond of US$1800 per person to step ashore. Yes, like the lust-crazed crew of the Bounty it is easy to lose ones head here in the Society Islandsto adore them so much you do foolish things to stay. Our ketch-rigged Wauquiez 43 Ganesh is stern-to the dock in bustling Papeete. We are only a two-minute walk to world class bakeries, a giant farmers market, and numerous hyper-marchs. The best parts of Europe are here, and the best parts of au natural Polynesia are here as wellwith very few drawbacks to either. We usually visit les roulouttes rst each eveningmobile food vans that come down to the waterfront to feed the locals. They arrive around dusk, ooding the area with a rich aroma as well as a sea of tables, chairs, and boiling pots. The food is utterly delicious and relatively cheap for the Pacic. The portions are huge. Its mostly a Tahitian family affair with mom and the kids meeting papa after work. There are about 50 of these restaurants on wheels and each specializes in something unique and tasty. You eat and roam: a salad here, an entre there, with some Chantilly crepes to top it all off. There are four or ve clumps of local musicians gathered along the perimeter of this huge, open-air dining area. They are unamplied, so they dont interfere with each other. They are not asking for money nor accepting it. They are just singing their traditional Polynesian songs for the simple joy of it. Their joyous voices intermingle with the heavy scent of owers. Flowers are everywhere around usto live in Tahiti is to breathe owers. If youre wealthy, you buy them prestrung; if you are not, you merely reach out an arm. Every
OCTOBER 2013 ALLATSEA.NET 23Tahitian vahine (female) carries a bit of wire in her purse to insert through the stem of the just-plucked ower and hold it rmly behind her ear. Flowers are never inappropriate. The giant construction worker who wrestles with his jackhammer wears them around his hardhat, just as correctly as the handsomest island queen. After a while, the scent of owers makes you hear Polynesian folk songs, and the folk songs make you smell owers. Tahitians are ne, ne artisans, too. They dance. They carve. They paint. It is difcult to describe precisely how the Tahitian women dance. I was standing next to some dancers waiting to go on stage a few nights ago and their hips kept sort of twitching on in their eagerness to begin. It is as if there are sensuous, honey-lubricated mini paintcan shakers in their hips. (The maidens dance is called the timorodee and is shocking enoughbut the couples upaupa lacks only penetration.) The Tahitians are exible in the ways of love, in their art, even in their religion. They just melded their gods (like Tangaroa, the local King Neptune) with the Jesus-guy and all was well. The nearby Fijians loved the missionaries because they were so tender and tasty, but the Polynesians love to partyeven with the dourest of partners. We attend church while in Polynesia, not because were religious but because we cant bear to miss the singing. One fty-member choir isnt enough in Papeete; the Protestant church has four or ve. Family and village life are still important here. Whole swarms of children run laughing everywhere. Each child is a sort of demi-godto be worshipped as well as nurtured. Ive never heard a baby cry in Polynesia. The happiest, most respected adult in the village is the one at whose house all the children gather to play. Is there a better way to obtain community status? Love is in the air. The teenagers swoon with each other off in the shadows. Mom and Pop embrace in the middle. Grandma and Grandpa, too, are in each others arms lust has no age limit here. The Tahitians are beautiful people, even the men. Normally, I dont think of men, especially massively built, superFlowers are never inappropriate. The giant construction worker who wrestles with his jackhammer wears them around his hardhat, just as correctly as the handsomest island queen.
24 ALLATSEA.NET OCTOBER 2013the weekends, hundreds! They enjoy paddling singularly as well as in giant canoes with dozens of men. Groups of woman paddle too. Their bronzed bodies covered with honest, righteous sweat glisten. Their dripping oars ash. Sometimes they sing as they paddle. A sudden gust of wind will blow owers off the trees and into the water. They are paddling through owers singing songs of love. wanna walk down School Street? I ask Carolyn. She grins. I hear you can learn a lot on School Street, you dog, you! I smile, and take her hand. She, too, has a ower in her hair. The mahus (transvestites) and rae raes (gays) smile at us. A few are drug-addled and selling themselvesbut most are just young lads in full bloom of sexual awakeningexactly like their sisters. There is no danger. Everyone is polite. No one is angry or resentful or threatening. Why should anyone be hostile when life is so sensuous and exciting and wonderful? They are beautiful and they know it. Some even sport beards along with their pearls, lipstick, and silky pareos. (The lines of homosexuality, trans-sexuality, crossdressing, and transvestitism are completely blurred here.) We come to the Garden of the Canoes, just west of the city center. Here, large groups of families and friends from the outer islands gather in an open-air home away from home while they visit their beloved capital. We feel perfectly safe. Theres a group of drummers beckoning for us to join in. Avid ocean surfers, the kids take to skateboarding like sh to water. Bicycles whizz by. Laughter lls the air intermingling with the owers and the folk songs. Ukuleles pluck. Guitars strum. Wash-tub basses boom. The moon rises impossibly closelike we could reach out and touch it. Stars wink. Planets sparkle. and owers, owers, owers everywhere! I take little sips of perfumed tropical air. Carolyn has never looked more beautiful. I am in perfect balancefor once, my head is clear and condent and unfettered. you love Tahiti, dont you, Carolyn asks in a whisper as she tilts her face up.

26 ALLATSEA.NET OCTOBER 2013 Sailing Humor BY JULIAN PUTLEY GRAPHICS BY HANNAH WELCH Catamarans have become the charter yacht of choice in the Caribbean. Every year more and more cats join the crewed yacht eet while the bareboat companies vie for these multi-hulls as demand increases. Charlie is often called upon to teach catamaran sailing to neophytes. One of the rst questions from Joe and Sheila, sixty-something students-fora-week, was, Were thinking of buying a boat, which type would you advise; a mono hull or a catamaran? The question is rather like, Im going for a walk, what kind of shoes should I wear? There are just so many variables its hard to come up with a denitive answer. Charlie usually postpones an answer until after the course is over. To make a positive rst impression Charlie extols the virtues of some of the cats features. Joe and Sheila seemed dead keen so he described the roominess of the cabins, main salon, foredeck trampoline and cockpit to the eager couple. He showed the nicely insulated generator locker accentuating the comfortable temperatures the air conditioning can provide. The boat sails fast, continued Charlie, and with the shallow draft well have the best spot in the anchorage, right next to the beach. Maneuvering and docking is a piece of cake too. Twin engines are your best friends. Before long they were out of the marina and sailing fast with all sails set on a close reach in 18 knots. It was exhilarating stuff with spray ying over the windward bow. But on about day four Joe was becoming less enamored by the heavy work of hoisting the fully battened mainsl. Then the 120% Genoa kept getting fouled on poorly positioned mast cleats especially when the sail was back winded to bring the boat through a tack. Sheeting in the Genoa for close hauled sailing was no cinch either. You could always install electric winches, explained Charlie, airily. During happy hour all the talk was about the potential new boat the couple was going to buy. Their budget was one million and Charlie told them they could buy a pretty good midsize cat for that price. But Sheila had somehow become concerned about safety. On the trip to Anegada the wind had piped up to over 20 knots and the leeward shrouds had become loose; she was frightened. Nothing to worry about said Charlie cheerily, even if the worst comes to the worst and the boat capsizes theres an escape hatch. That was it! That was the death knell; the killer blow that ended the dream. Charlie quickly changed the subject when the look of horror on the ladys face became apparent. Escape hatches are never used its a design feature, explained Charlie in desperation, trying to cover his tracks. But the lady was adamant, Ill never go on a catamaran again very dangerous Ive seen them in the Americas Cup trials on TV. There was nothing Charlie could do. Joe just shrugged with a look of resignation. It would either be her or the boat; one would have to go. Charlie knew what his choice would be.

Ask Larry Ellison, the Americas Cup organizer who has thrown millions at this years Americas cup and he has hardly attracted participation that is proportional to the amount of money spent. Many of us in the Caribbean have created great events and the outstanding natural conditions and the energy regattas produce make it interesting to consider what drives success in these ventures. In the Caribbean, we have had plenty of experience trying every model of regatta based on a variety and mix of motivations. Lets have a look at what has worked and what has not worked. Authentic passion for the event linked to type of boat is a sure winner. The Antigua classic regatta is an exam-WHO WILL COME TO YOUR PARTY?ple of passionate classic lovers running a regatta for other passionate sailors, ensuring consistently good turnouts in what is a very shallow market of participants. The resulting ambiance and experience drives even more interest in the event as a result. Prestige is a factor that seems to generate a great deal of participation particularly with the super yachts. In the early days, Antigua enjoyed such prestige but more recently St. Barths has become the king of prestige and this (with other factors) has helped drive participation in the St. Barth Bucket and the Voile de St Barths. The prestige regattas have managed to cream off the largest super yachts from all regattas and actually drawn in boats that would never have felt at home in events with smaller yachts. Strong existing classes drive and encourage participaPHOTO: OCEANMEDIA ORGANIZING REGATTAS THAT MAXIMIZE PARTICIPATIONBY ROBBIE FERRON When prestige is a factor, only hard work and innovation will bring people to the party

30 ALLATSEA.NET OCTOBER 2013 Racing Circuit tion. When a potential participant knows that by winning a class in that particular regatta he really has achieved a goal. Tight classes also make handicap racing (which we are largely stuck with) a much better experience. Social atmosphere will always help a regatta trump other events even if the organization and marketing is not up to par. Bequia Easter regatta always had that laidback, comfortable image that helped it score over many years. The Sint Maarten Heineken Regatta also sells a social atmosphere albeit a very different one to Bequia. The BVI Spring Regatta has led with the short course, high quality, racing card which has given it consistent success. Although it has attracted the serious sailors it has probably not created the zing that might have brought more participants. Unfortunately, contradictions in regatta organization dictate that the more competitive the racing, the less dedicated the partying and, as a result, really sporting sailors are unlikely to party as hard as their laidback colleagues. To attract sailors every event must work hard at preparation. Marketing well ahead of time and communicating clearly with possible participants is essential. But ensuring that this work is backed by a positive buzz in the bars and the blogs is what makes the difference to the end result. Positive buzz can be helped along by spending money on marketing but ultimately this is not under the total control of the organizers. It can be enhanced by just one dynamic and inuential person but also by an excited and motivated eet. The information that high-prole boats are participating is the essential precursor to a major entry in that particular category of boat. Organizing a regatta in the Caribbean is like throwing a party or running a bar. Potential participants must see something in the event that makes them want to come to the party or visit the bar, something that may be difcult to grasp but very real to their experience. Creating that experience is often underestimated and many aspiring regattas are disappointed when numbers are below expectations, their expectations usually having been created by a limited set of conditions they had dened as driving participation. We wonder why certain bars are successfully and others, with very similar attributes, are not. We wonder why certain parties are a rip-roaring success and others, in similar circumstances, fall at on their face. It is my belief that organizing regattas is as mystical and complicated as organizing parties or running bars.

Several races are planned for this day with great prizes for the top three boats in each class. Then, on November 16 and 17, theres the traditional racing for a prize of the skippers weight in rum for all classes with seven or more boats. Last year, out of a eet of 24 boats divided into four classes and hailing from the U.S. Virgin Islands, British Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico, it was St. Croixs Jack Bishop who drove his J/100, Bad Girl to a rst in the highly-competitive Spinnaker Class and won his weight in rum. The rst three nishers in all classes will receive awards at the beachfront ceremony on November 17. Courses include point-to-point racing in Buck Island harbor for the race boats and a course set into Christiansted Harbor for the cruising boats.

Gene Lenow, jumped into the lead early by being the rst boat to release six blue marlin with an early morning catch. Jichi got the jump on us and we knew we needed to get going, tells Wave Paver s Davis. It was around 9:30 to 10:00 that I released a blue that bit on the pitch, and then another 10 to 20 minutes later. That put us back in the lead with seven releases.

36 ALLATSEA.NET OCTOBER 2013Choosing the right type of boat for your needs can seem daunting. Even if you know the style of boat you want, there are still a lot of variables to consider. Thats where All At Sea come in. Weve spoken to experts at leading boat manufacturers and put together a series of articles on what to look for before you buy. Were going to cover a range of boat types, each created to t a distinct lifestyle, with different criteria to t varying needs. Our rst boat type is the ever-popular center console powerboat. For these types of boats it really comes down to one thing: hull design. Before deciding which center console is right for you, take a look at what the experts have to say. Powerboating WHAT TO LOOK FOR IN A CENTER CONSOLE: BY DOUG SIMMONSHULL DESIGN Shelley Tubaugh, Grady-WhiteThe biggest thing is deciding what youre going to do with the boat. People use center consoles for a lot of different activities. Are you going to be shallow-water shing, boating on a lake or a river, or running miles offshore? Youll want a deeper hull for the ocean and a shallower hull for inshore. And the size of the boat may dictate the angle of the deadrise and the draft, so thats also a consideration. You want a hull thats going to give you maximum comfort and performance based on how you intend to use it. If someone is shopping for a center console, Id tell them to get a demo ride in a representative environment, so they know how the boat handles in the conditions they are most likely to encounter.
OCTOBER 2013 ALLATSEA.NET 37 Dale Martin, Sportsman BoatsStepped hulls dont really give you any benet until you reach about 50mph so if you dont plan to run at high speeds for a lot of the time, you dont need steps. Its usage rst, budget second, and you start looking from there. Unfortunately, most buyers today look at all this stuff on the Internet, and before they know it, they think they have their mind made up before theyve even seen the boat. You need to talk to the dealers and ask questions, and then take a ride. You want a hull thats going to get on plane quickly and smoothly, and thats dry. Work the tabs and see how the boat steers and reacts. Run it wide open and put it into some hard turns. I tell people to drive it like a rental car.Alan Lang, Scout BoatsSafety, ultimately, is the most important thing. With safety comes peace of mind and enjoyment. Look for boats with hulls that are hand laid. Any hull that is built with a chopper gun will be nowhere near as strong or as rigid, because the resin to berglass ratios are much higher. The next most important attribute is to have a hull that cuts smoothly through the rough-water chop. A smooth, dry ride is very important to be able to enjoy your time on the water. Nobody likes a boat that beats them up or gets them wet. Fuel economy and efcient designs are also things to consider. Bryan Harris, EvergladesA center console can be anything from a 15-foot ats boat to a 40-foot offshore boat, so the rst thing to ask is what the use of the boat will be. This will determine the kind of boat you want, and, to an extent, what kind of hull it has.
38 ALLATSEA.NET OCTOBER 2013 Powerboating If youre looking for a pure offshore boat, then a deep-V is a good choice. What we see a lot of now are people who use their center console for island hopping, watersports and family outings. A variable deadrise hull that offers a little more versatility and stability at slower speeds is a good choice here. Another feature to look for is a reverse chine, which pushes spray down and away at the waterline. This results in a drier ride. Flared hulls may or may not always deect spray because its already airborne.John Caballero, SeaVee BoatsIts all about the ride, but the tricky part is, its subjective. Each boat has its own personality. No one boat can do it all. Some things are more important to me and less important to others. When evaluating the ride, look at how the boat transitions from displacement to planing. Does it jump on plane quickly? Does it have excessive bow rise? How does the boat run up-sea and down-sea? Is it wet? Do you have to trim it a lot to get a decent ride? Is it stable at trolling speeds? All are important factors and speak to the balance and center of gravity. Secondary, but still important, are the shape of the hull and the aesthetics. Do you like the sheerline, or does it look weird? Is there the right amount of are for your taste? Is the hull too pointy? Boating is about passion. You have to love how your boat looks and performs.Les Stewart, Jr., Contender BoatsFor offshore center consoles, the rst step is to decide if you want a deep-V or a stepped hull. The traditional deep-V is tried and true. The stepped hull is newer, but with advancements in technology, they are becoming pretty popular. Stepped hulls drive differently, more like a high-end sports car. Some people want to go very comfortably, and some want to go farther, faster. So, what do you want? Is your goal to run 100 miles offshore, or do you only need to go ten miles to get to the shing grounds? Look at the deadrise. This determines how the boat cuts through water and how stable it is at rest. Offshore hulls are usually deeper, but in general, most center console deadrise arent too far off from each other. As a travel and marine journalist, Doug Simmons has cruised all around the Northeast, Mid-Atlantic States and Florida, and has island hopped in the Bahamas and the Caribbean.

44 ALLATSEA.NET OCTOBER 2013 A sampling of responses from crewed brokerages and bareboat companies provides a peek at the hot trends in the Caribbean charter yacht industry.1. Business is Looking Up! Business seems better, says Ann McHorney, founder and director of Select Yachts, in St. Maarten. More repeats are popping up. Dick Schoonover, manager of CharterPort BVI, a Tortola, BVI-based yacht clearinghouse, agrees and adds, While the constant media barrage tells us the economy is down, the economic strata that are booking crewed charters havent seen the pinch. Take the week of New Year, for example. The smart money was booking New Year 2013/2014 back SEVEN TOP CHARTER TRENDS BY CAROL M. BAREUTHER in April. Back in June, on one day, our busiest brokerage up north held three boats for three different customers, all with dates in May 2014. May has never been a high demand month, so its a bit quirky to see people booking 11 months out for one of the slowest charter months of the year. Narendra Seth Sethia, base manager for Barefoot Yacht Charters & Marine Centre in St. Vincent & The Grenadines, says, More budget-orientated crewed yachts seem to have received less businesses as those yachts cater to less afuent clients who still may be getting back on their feet post-recession.2.

Theres more interest in chartering as a business or a second business rather than something to do in semi-retirement, explains Kelly Kiernan, acting director of the Virgin Islands Charteryacht League (VICL) and director of the St. Thomas-based clearinghouse, Flagship. On the marketing side, Select Yachts McHorney says, We are seeing more use of video as a promotional function. There are a number of support companies out there focusing on yacht videography. We expect to see a lot of nice new yacht videos from the yachts to assist with charter sales. 3. Credit Cards Rule AlmostMore and more people expect to use a credit card to pay for their charter, says Steve McCrea, president of Edgecomb, ME-based Ed Hamilton & Co. Select Yachts McHorney, says, We havent made the leap to accepting them [credit cards]. We work on a very small percentage so the inherent liabilities of a charge back are really frightening. As for gratuities, Some people still carry cash, but guests are now encouraged to set up wire instructions before they leave home so they can wire large gratuities easily at the end of their charter and to avoid carrying large sums of cash around, explains Jacqui Pascall, reservationist at Horizon Yacht Charters Grenada base.4. Yachts: Size Matters Bigger is BetterWhile the all-inclusive crewed yachts lend themselves perfectly to family trips, says Shannan Brennan, the Tampa/ St. Petersburg, FL-based global marketing manager at PICTURE COURTESY OF THE MOORINGS WWW.MOORINGS.COM
46 ALLATSEA.NET OCTOBER 2013 The Moorings and head of marketing for North America for The Moorings, Sunsail and Footloose, we nd that many guests are preferring to go as groups of three or four couples to split the cost of the larger, more luxurious vessels in our eet. The same principle can be applied to bareboat charters. Historically, bareboat charters have constituted mostly of monohulls accommodating maybe four to six guests. But now, catamarans are proving to be the norm. Clients are focusing less on the performance aspect of the boats and more on the size and comfort aspect, attempting to t eight to ten guests on board on a regular basis.5. Must-Haves: Wi-Fi & Water ToysPeople expect more equipment today, says Barefoots Sethia. When I started in this business 31 years ago, you could send a bareboat out with a towed log line, a depthsounder, a VHF radio and a music system. These days you have to add autopilot, wind instruments, chart plotter and, very often, things like Wi-Fi. Charter guests are burning through the month-long cellular connection quota for a yacht in one week, adds CharterPorts Schoonover. Kids think that they just have to Skype and YouTube their friends or else download movies while they are aboard. Seven Top Charter Trends Sarah Sebastian, owner of Nicholson Yacht Charters & Services, in Antigua, says, Stand-up paddleboards are big and so are blowup slides on motoryachts. Something new were seeing is the beach on motoryachts or swim platforms equipped with a lounge, umbrella and wet bar.6. Cuisine Goes Light & HealthyForget booze cruises with multi-course heavily sauced meals. I just had a charter guest tell me they would have preferred simpler food but the chef kept trying to make everything too fancy and the children did not like it, says Select Yachts McHorney. We get asked for a lot of fresh produce, and gluten free diets seem to be the latest thing.7. Destination, Destination, DestinationMore motoryachts are venturing down to the Southern Caribbean, says Nicholsons Sebastian. At the same time, the VICLs Kiernan adds, Were seeing more charter requests for the U.S. and Spanish Virgin Islands. Why? Vieques and Culebra have fabulous beaches and most importantly they arent as crowded. Carol M. Bareuther, RD, is a St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands based marine writer and registered dietitian.

48 ALLATSEA.NET OCTOBER 2013 CHARTERING 101 WRITER AND CHARTERER MARK STEVENS HAS BEEN THERE AND DONE THATForget about hotels or shore-bound inns. When you charter you get your own room with a view like this sunset over TortolaPHOTO: WWW.SHERRYSPIX.COM
OCTOBER 2013 ALLATSEA.NET 49So youve nally decided to cast off, tired of prowling Caribbean docks with a bad case of nautical envy. You havent sold the house to sail into the sunset but at least youve committed both time and budget to a charter. Now where do you go? Who do you book it with? Do you have the necessary skills? Fear not intrepid mariner, for the answers, like Blackbeards Treasure, lay herein. At the end of my rst bareboat charter we pulled into the dock shaken and humbled. My wife was now convinced that, safely ashore, shed live to see her children again. A crusty salt standing nearby grinned and said its not the BVIs, is it? Grenada is unspeakably beautiful mountainous and lush with steep slopes blanketed by vibrant orange and red amboyant trees. And although Grenada is spectacular and a must-do charter destination, the robust sailing conditions of the southern Caribbean are perhaps not the place for your rst charter. If youve never done blue water sailing, start with the British Virgin Islands. The two big advantages here are (1) with forty-plus islands in this picturesque archipelago you can get from one overnight spot to the next in just a couple of hours and (2) Drake Passage is protected from most of the big waves of the open sea. But you can also encounter kindly conditions in The Abacos in the Bahamas. While depths can be a factor here (you have to have solid chart-reading skills), the islands ringing Abaco Sound make for both sheltered waters and a variety of anchorages with short passages. Charming, too: Hope Town is like a pastel-painted New England, only with perfect pink sand beaches. If youre a solid skipper with a seaworthy crew, consider the Grenadines. Wind and waves are challenging and passages between islands are longer, but once you arrive and drop the hook in Tobago Cays with their brown sugar sand, a thousand shades of green, and waters the color of heaven you may never weigh anchor again. Some of the Leewards are great compromises, rich in history and nautical traditions, offering secluded anchorages or great nightlife. If you cast off from St. Martins popular charter base at Oyster Pond youll be taken aback by the serious waves lashing the harbor opening. But once out there you can head south and round the island, with some great sheltered passages up the west side. Not to mention the fact that this island with the split personality boasts some of the Caribbeans best nightlife and shore-bound dining. From here you can also explore the idyllic island of Anguilla or pull up at Gustavia in St. Barths and fancy yourself a member of the haute monde. ww ww ww ww ww ww ww ww w ww w w w w w w w w w w w s s s s s s s s s il il il il il il il l ri ri ri ri ri ri te te t te te te te te te e c c c c c c c c c om om om om om om om m om om ww ww ww ww ww ww w ww ww w w w w w w w w w w w w w s s s s s s s il il il il il il il ri ri ri ri ri ri ri i i r te te te te te te te te te c c c c c c c c om om om om om o m om om om om Oc Oc Oc Oc Oc Oc O Oc O O to to to to to to to be be be be e be be e r r r r r r r Te Te Te Te Te e nt nt nt nt nt H H H H H H H H Pat Pat Pat t Pat P at at t Pat ent ent ent ent ent ent ent e e t s: s: s: s: s: s: : #64 #64 #64 #64 #64 #64 #6 # 6 994 99 994 994 994 9 9 9 99 15, 15, 15, 15, 15, 1 15, #7 #7 #7 #7 7 #7 7 #7 #7 7 438 438 438 38 8 438 38 438 438 38 009 009 009 009 009 00 00 009 009 009
50 ALLATSEA.NET OCTOBER 2013 Chartering 101 Lots of options if you cast off from Antigua too: protected waters in North Sound, a years worth of beaches, a great selection of anchorages and a nautical tradition without equal. In addition, St. Kitts and Nevis are fairly painless downwind passages from there. And your reward is an anchorage off Nevis at one of the most beautiful of Caribbean beaches. But you dont have to be dissuaded from a destination like Grenada because you lack condence. All the charter companies offer skippered charters. With outts like Moorings or Sunsail you can go for the royal treatment: have them provision the boat and book a skipper and a chef. Would that I had that kind of budget! You can also ship some help for part of your trip arrange a skipper for the rst day or two then head out on your own. Another great compromise is to sign up for a otilla. Ive never done this in the Caribbean but I did it last year in Croatia and loved it. No undue hand-holding just daily briengs from a local expert that include hazards to navigation and perfect lunch stops and some downright fabulous nightly get-togethers. When it comes to choosing a charterer you look at your budget and needs and the kind of service you want sometimes its a matter of which charterers serve which destination. In my experience, Moorings is sort of the Cadillac of charters while Sunsails brand position leans more toward performance boats. A company like Horizon offers friendly service because theyre smaller than the rst two although they do offer a comprehensive eet in several locations. So, now youve had the two-minute primer theres just one more task at hand Its time to cast off.

52 ALLATSEA.NET OCTOBER 2013 When three couples from New Jersey chartered out of Tortola they chose to provision themselves rather than ask an on-island provisioner or select a package from their bareboat company. Why? Ease and expense, explains Jack Edwards, who planned the charter. We ew in the day before, stayed in a hotel, and went to the boat the next morning for the brieng so we knew what type of galley space we had. Then, we took a cab to the nearest market and had the driver wait so we had a ride back with our groceries. This way, each couple could buy what they liked, it was fairly inexpensive, and we didnt feel obligated to eat on-board if we wanted to dine ashore. Steve McCrea, president of Edgecomb, ME-based Ed Hamilton & Co., says, Provisioning is advice we walk through with individual customers. Its fairly polarizing, people either like to squeeze their own tomatoes, or they prefer to have everything taken care of. ConveniencePre-provisioning has the advantage of arriving and finding your floating home fully stocked, says Jacqui PROVISIONING PROS & CONS: PACKAGES VS. DIYBY CAROL M. BAREUTHER Pascall, reservationist at Horizon Yacht Charters Grenada base. This way, you can focus on the sailing and relaxing part. For someone new to bareboat chartering, Shannan Brennan, the Tampa/St. Petersburg, FL-based global marketing manager at The Moorings and head of marketing for North America for The Moorings, Sunsail and Footloose, recommends one of the companys provisioning options. These range from ingredients for all meals for a week-long trip to a-la-carte lists akin to grocery shopping online. This way, everything is pre paid, you have done all of the organization well in advance of the trip, we have done the shopping and all of the food and drink is loaded on board before you even arrive. It makes for an easy arrival and lessens the apprehension new travelers may have when arriving for their vacation. The drawback to this is that there may be a limitation in selection as opposed to shopping yourself. SelectionSelf-provisioning means that you get precisely what you want, says Narendra Seth Sethia, base manager for Barefoot Yacht Charters & Marine Centre in St. Vincent PHOTO COURTESY OF JANE HARRISON AT MEGAYACHT SERVICE, ST.

Sometimes a charter company may make substitutes, which a guest doesnt fancy. Plus, it can be fun shopping in local markets, particularly down-island, so that you get a real flavor of the local shopping scene. Saint Vincent has a couple of pretty good supermarkets with a fairly wide variety of options, excellent locally-grown fresh produce at very good prices, and there are places where you can get great selections of cheeses and deli items and wonderful home-baked breads. On the other hand, explains Jane Harrison of Mega Yacht Services, in Plaza del Lago, St. Maarten, We offer almost any service for guests and crew on the yachts we help, including shopping and drinks, rare wines, champagnes, caviar, oral arrangements and more. Spronks Provisioning & Mega Yacht Services in Grenada provides bareboat guests with everything from a handful of items to a complete charter, explains Serena Peters. We offer local provisioning of fresh fruit and vegetables as well as herbs, which come direct from the growers garden straight to the boat. We are able to source wonderful fresh sh such as tuna, mahi mahi, grouper and red snapper which arrives sushi style in portions to suit. We are also able to get USDA Choice tenderloin, rump steaks, duck, pork loins and much more. All of which we get from our suppliers who sell wholesale and are not available in the local supermarkets. Thus, an individual would struggle to get hold of these items.Delivery The advantage of self-provisioning is that its usually cheaper, says Barefoots Sethia. However, working with a provisioner means you dont have to spend money on cab fares to and from the supermarket. Steven Mix, at BWA Yachting, in Plaza Del Lago, St. Maarten, says, We deliver provisions directly to the boats either in one of the many St. Maarten marinas, or at anchor often in Simpson Bay or off shore in Grand Case. We can also arrange for delivery to St. Barths and Anguilla and will look after all the paper work to do so. Carol M.

Special Advertising Section P robably the thing I love best about what I do ... is being at the cusp of change in peoples lives. I facilitate people moving on to The Next Big Thing...buyers and sellers alike. Having spent three years trying to get my own head around selling up everything and buying and retting a boat to go sailing (I eventually ended up on a therapists couch...) and having spent almost two years trying to sell another boat through brokers a decade later, I am well placed to know what buyers and sellers want. Essentially, I give my clients what I expect a broker to give to me...and I am picky. Its that simple. I have a background in the design, sales and installation of big ticket communication systems, where a knowledge based, proactive service was imperative. A lifetime spent tinkering with things mechanical, together with time spent as an apprentice aircraft mechanic before I came away, certainly helps too! So too does the more than thirty years I have been messing about with boats of all sizes, plenty sea miles including two Atlantic crossings, the rst being in 1981 navigating with a sextant and a lead line. (and Yes...we got lost.) In the nearly twenty years we have been in the Caribbean, we have run charter boats, run charter boat bases, rebuilt sunk to the bottom hurricane destroyed vessels and project managed teams of workers refurbishing private and charter vessels...and bought and sold boats for our own account. The brokerage was the next logical step...and we understand silver service!

OCTOBER 2013 ALLATSEA.NET 65Grenada has its workboats, Martinique its yoles, and Tobago its bum-boats. Similarly, Puerto Ricos native wooden sailboat is the Chalana. Chalanas evolved from shing boats and coastal traders. They were once used to supply larger vessels anchored in a bay or offshore as well as to transport sugarcane to Central America. Today, theres a strong following of native boat racing enthusiasts. There are two types of Chalanas now being raced, explains Gregg Fyffe, who is lming a documentary on Chalanas and has uploaded a trailer to YouTube titled Chalanas Santa Isabel, explains, the 28-foot class, which is a more traditional n keeled weighted boat built locally, and then theres the 16, 18, 20 and 24-foot classes which are centreboard, crew ballasted boats with trapeze and hiking rails. There are no real rm design rules for Chalanas except for length to race in a particular class. However, in recent years, Puerto Rico all designs are based on an Australian skiff type format with a plumb bow, wide open stern and about ve or more trapeze. All construction is plywood covered with breglass reinforced with metal crossbars. The boats are constantly being rened and remade as they either break or some new technology or design scheme is seen by the owners and incorporated. Some have stepped hulls like powerboats, hard chine or soft chine, depending on the builder. Design plans range from being hand-drawn in beach sand to computer generated. Chalanas are traditionally raced between Ponce and Arroyo on the south/southeast coast of Puerto Rico, while two variations called Gambotines and Nativos are in greater concentration on the eastern coast. Gambotines are built with a traditional design but using breglassed plywood over frames. Nativos are traditional displacement hull vessels with a pronounced bow and full keel. Their design is PUERTO RICOS NATIVE SAILBOATS PAST MEETS PRESENTBY CAROL M. BAREUTHERPHOTO: ROBERT DAVIS/SAIL NAGUABO 8

Carlos Marrero, who has raced Chalanas for many years, tells, I am personally promoting a one design project consisting of a boat that you can buy in pieces to assemble in the backyard. Weve already assembled the rst one and interest from new people is good. It is a 17-foot Nativo. I used Google SketchUp to draw the design, and Carlos Bobonis from the Architecture Laboratory of the Catholic University of Puerto Rico, Ponce Campus, helped me with the CNC (Computer Numerical Control) technology. I just arrive at the University with the SketchUp le and a few plywood planks and the CNC router does everything. Its magical and a huge step for sailboat building in Puerto Rico. Marreros next step is to promote a one-design 24-foot Chalana, for which he is receiving assistance from an architect in the structural analysis and other design details. There are two ways visitors and locals alike can get involved in native boat sailing in Puerto Rico. One is via regattas. More than 20 traditional boat regattas take place annually. Most occur between the months of May and August. There are also invitational regattas, which push this number to 30 to 35 weekends per year with both Chalanas and Nativos in the water. Regattas are usually announced through social media such as Facebook and Twitter as well as in local newspapers. These events are staged off public beaches. True to tradition, all of the courses are laid out in consideration of the spectators on shore. This is what keeps the crowds growing at these regattas. The second way is by taking sailing lessons. Robert Davis, whose father was stationed at Roosevelt Roads, has childhood memories of sailing on Chalanas. Today, his Sail Naguabo in Playa Naguabo (about ten miles southwest of Humacao) offers adult and youth, basic, intermediate and advanced classes aboard 15, 17 and 21-foot Nativos on Saturdays from 8am to Noon for $25 per person. Better yet, Davis holds a free Sunday open house from Noon to 3pm that features free rides, orientation and class registration.

OCTOBER 2013 ALLATSEA.NET 69 United States Virgin Islands DESTINATION: RED HOOK, ST. THOMASThere is ofcially only one town on St. Thomas: Charlotte Amalie. The rest of the island is divided up into estates dating back to the sugar era. Yet, thanks to the proximity of the British Virgin Islands for sailing and the North Drop for sports shing, Estate Red Hook, or Red Hook for short, has grown into an unofcial town for both local and visiting mariners. Red Hook is located at the east end of St. Thomas. Mangroves, cactus, salt ponds and seabirds were the primary residents until the mid to late 1950s when the Dohm family constructed a simple building from which to run their water taxi business, an enterprise that eventually moved about a mile down the road and continued into mid 2000. According to an article published on the St. Thomas Source about Per Dohm at the time of his death in 2006, Dohm credited his father Lars for renaming the lone, tiny pier from Shark STORY BY CAROL M.

Many shops and services, which directly and indirectly support these marine industries, have opened and in doing so turned Red Hook into a one-stop-shop. Sailors and sports shermen dont need to drive 30 minutes or more into Charlotte Amalie and can, in many cases, just walk to get what they need. For example, theres the islands only tackle shop, chandlery, dive shop and captains school within AYH. Banks with ATMs, a walk-in medical clinic, dentist, eye doctor, drug store, veterinarian and pet store, mail and secretarial service all located across the street. Eight bars and restaurants are within walking distance. A small grocery store is set to re-open and a larger supermarket, Food Center, is about a two mile drive. A car rental, East End taxi service, and a ferry dock with passage to St. John and the BVI are here as well as day sail boats, runabout rentals and luxury motoryachts for charter. Theres even a small salt pond with boardwalk for bird-watching. Villas, apartments and resorts are all within a miles drive. I really like Red Hook and whats available there, says Gary Domel, from Austin, Texas, who visits each summer with his 48ft Cabo, Deguello There are hotels nearby for my wife to stay, plenty of places to eat, the shing is great and the people are friendly. Carol M. Bareuther, RD, is a St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands based marine writer and registered dietitian. Wharf to Red Hook so that visitors wouldnt be scared away. The road out to Red Hook, in the late 1950s, was dirt, rocks and potholes. Folks who remember those days say it wasnt wise to drive out at night or without a spare tire. It was in the early 1960s that Red Hook really started to come to life. Two things happened within a year of each other that sealed Red Hooks fate as a nautical Mecca. First, Capt. Johnny Harms, who is credited with pioneering marlin shing in the Virgin Islands, wanted to move his Lagoon Marina to Red Hook. In order to get the two acres of waterfront he really wanted, he had to purchase an entire 20 acre parcel. This turned out to be a blessing as it provided a site on which to build a club house for the Virgin Islands Game Fishing Club, which was founded in the fall of 1963. Then, a year later, in November 1964, and at the end of a donkey trail that led from Red Hook over a small rise to a two-acre salt pond rimmed with thick scrub, the St. Thomas Yacht Club was born. Sailing and sports shing provide year-round lifeblood to Red Hook. The seasons are marked by a sea of sailboat masts in the harbor and at IGYs American Yacht Harbor (AYH) marina in the winter and spring, and a mass of tuna towers on the docked sport shing rigs in the summer and fall. We are at the gateway to the BVI cruising grounds, which we know as some of the safest and most beautiful cruising in the world, says Lee Hicks, AYH general manager. We are also the closest marina to the famous North Drop, home to some of the biggest blue marlin in the Sports fishing boat line the docks in summer

72 ALLATSEA.NET OCTOBER 2013 United States Virgin Islands Well over 100 brokers will be walking the docks at charter yacht shows in the region this season. One celebrating the start of her fourth decade in the business is Verna Ruan, owner of the St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands-based Crewed Charters. Since the inception of her brokerage in 1982, Ruan has seen many things in the industry change and others stay the same. Ruan, a native of New Jersey, rst travelled to the Virgin Islands in the 1960s while attending Columbia University. Her interest was piqued after viewing a slideshow presented by two Danish doctors of their camping trip to Hawksnest Bay in St. John. Shortly thereafter, she and a group of friends visited on a camping trip of their own. The campground was right on the road without much privacy, Ruan says. We made friends with all the rangers and they invited us to their homes, not as tourists, but as guests. Thats when I fell in love with the Virgin Islands. I remember crying on the plane when it was time to go home. It wasnt until several years later, at the beginning of the 1970s, that Ruan nished her masters degree in linguistics and moved to St. Thomas. She taught French and Spanish for ten years at the Eudora Kean High School in Red Hook. This location made it easy to fall in with the nautical crowd.

OCTOBER 2013 ALLATSEA.NET 75 racing in several sailboat regattas out of the St. Thomas Yacht Club, working with Jim Long who started St. Thomas rst boating magazine, Caribbean Boating, helping Tom Stamp with his brokerage business, and chefng on a couple of crewed charters. I loved the nautical atmosphere and fell for it hook, line and sinker, says Ruan. I never thought about owning a business myself; I just did it. The early 80s saw a change in the tax code under the Reagan administration that allowed people to deduct the cost of a yacht as a second home. This sparked a boom in the charter eet, a switch from owner-operators to more paid crews and an opportunity that one boat builder capitalized on right away. Ted Irwin, a ercely competitive racing sailor, started making more comfortable cruising yachts. The Irwins were among the rst to have four equal size guest cabins aft and each with its own private head and shower, says Ruan. They became quite popular. There are still Irwins in the charter eet today. The late 1980s saw another evolution in crews and yachts. When word got out that you could get a sailing job in the Caribbean and get food, board and laundry paid for, there was an influx of crews from South Africa, which as a country was having its own financial challenges at that time, Ruan explains. Not only that, these crews bought boats from South African builders and sailed them across themselves. Thats what started the influx of catamarans. Charter yacht shows have evolved too. It was faster to view the eet when there were just monohulls. You could look down the companionway and everything was there right in front of you, says Ruan. Catamarans take longer to see and the crews like to show the entire yacht. Thats what is so nice about the spring show. There arent as many yachts, which gives more time to sit down, talk and get to know the crews. What has stayed the same is what rst attracted Ruan to the industry. What I like most are the people, she says. The guests I meet by Email and the crews I meet in person. Carol M.

76 ALLATSEA.NET OCTOBER 2013 United States Virgin Islands CLAGETT MEMORIAL CLINIC AND REGATTAHeld in July at Sail Newports facility in Fort Adams Park, Newport, R.I., the aim of the Clagett Regatta is to become the leader in developing competitive sailing opportunities for sailors with disabilities. This includes taking them to the elite level of sailing in order to increase the talent pool of U.S. sailors vying for Paralympic competition. Six medals have been won at the Paralympic Games (2008 & 2012) by veterans of the Clagett Regatta. The Clagett is sailed in three Paralympic class boats: The Sonar (three-person); SKUD-18 (two-person, man and woman), and the single-handed 2.4 Metre. Both the Sonar and the 2.4 classes accept able-bodied sailors. Having ablebodied sailors in the eet increases the level of competition and helps make better training opportunities for the Paralympic hopefuls. SPECIAL USVI SAILING TEAM WIN BRONZE IN SONARBY JAN ROBINSON For the Virgin Island team it began with a question from John Foster, Commodore of the St. Thomas Yacht Club, to David Flaherty: How would you like to go to Rio and sail in the Paralympics? Dave laughed, made a phone call to his friend, Tony Sanpere, and a team was formed. Flaherty moved to St. Thomas in 1990 having sailed for many years on different boats, and in many regattas, until he had a stroke in 2009. Tony Sanpere spent nine years in the U.S. Army and was deployed to Vietnam where he was wounded by an enemy mine. The worst damage was to his elbow and the hospital wanted to amputate, but Tony refused. Eventually he returned home to Georgia and spent eight months in and out of hospital. At the time, Tonys father and brother were living in St. Croix, and he moved there with his family in 1969.

When Rudy Thompson, a sailing pioneer and Olympian, later asked Tony to join him on his Soling, he was hooked. John Foster, former six-time Olympian, was the ablebodied sailor on the V.I. Team. Foster says it was the most outstanding, rewarding regatta that he has ever attended. The competitors spend the rst day working with assigned coaches that included world champions and Olympic sailors. And its this coaching clinic, held before the regatta, that makes this event so special. Everyone involved in the clinic are experts in their eld including lead coach Betsy Allison, herself a top professional sailor; John Vandemoer, head sailing coach at Stanford University, and sail maker Bill Shore from Newport, who holds many championship titles. Coach Craig Guthrie from Halifax, Canada, coached Paul Tingley to a Paralympic gold medal in 2004. The Clagett has not only succeeded in its core mission of providing sailors with disabilities the tools to improve their skills and the opportunity to test them in competition, it has had a positive impact on the participants quality of life by assisting each individual achieve personal competitive goals, freedom and adventure.EDITORS NOTE: If you live in the US Virgin Islands and are disabled and know how to sail, or are interested in learning how to sail, then please contact either Commodore John Foster: firstname.lastname@example.org or Jan Robinson: captjan2@ gmail.com.

Coming of age in wartime Europe, Tony Snell joined the Royal Air Force and after training in the United States became a pilot under the US/UK bilateral Arnold Scheme. On one mission in 1943 his Spitre was shot down over Sicily and he escaped two attempts on his life by Germans who thought he was a spy. During one escape attempt he was shot, a bullet lodging dangerously close to his spine, but he survived and later, with the help of partisans, managed to make his way to neutral Switzerland. Towards the end of the war he ew the experimental Meteors, some of the rst ever jet airplanes. Snell was awarded the DSO, one of very few awarded exclusively for escaping from the enemy. After the war Tonys natural talent as a musician and raconteur led him into the entertainment industry and one of many venues was Londons famous Windmill Club. In the heart of red light Soho this club was famous for scantily clad, high-kicking dancing girls Britains answer to the Folies Bergere.

Later in the decade Tony decided to write his memoirs in Spitre Troubadour chronicling a lifetime of excitement, fun and adventure. He would split his time between the UK and Bellamy Cay and on many occasions it was a great pleasure to see him make a surprise guest appearance. There have been huge outpourings of condolences in blogs, online chat forums and other media, all testaments to the grief and loss felt by his many fans and admirers.

The story of how Gumbs and Vos began their business should be studied by anyone thinking of entering the day charter trade. Of all the boats to put into day charter a 37-year-old, 55foot, traditional wooden sloop is not a logical choice, so why pick such a vessel? Because it was red! Gumbs said. Because it encompassed everything I loved about boats. Classic. Gaff rigged. Built in the West Indies. The unique West Indian Heritage of a longtime trading vessel. A wonderful answer that made me smile, but I knew that purchasing the boat was a tiny step along a bumpy road and it would be a long time before the rst charter guests ever walked the boats deck. I wasnt wrong. The two greatest difculties were trying to shoehorn in the commercial requirements while ensuring that the boat retained its originality, Gumbs said. I never wanted to lose the authenticity of Tradition of what she represented as a West Indian Trading Vessel. Nice sentiments but they came at a high price. Wooden boats need specialized care and repair and although they may say they are skilled, not all shipwrights are qualied to work on traditional boats. This was driven home when work on Tradition came to a halt as carpenters, lacking the skills to complete the work they had started, turned a three week haulout into a ve month stay on the hard.

But we were in it for the long haul, and we had this dream of chartering Tradition We refused to let go of the dream. Together we got through, and while all that time in St. Martin really set us back nancially, emotionally, mentally and physically ... we kept moving forward. We had to constantly nd the money, the energy, and the time. But we did it! And now weve just nished our rst season and were getting a fantastic response about Tradition Sailing Charters. Its been so incredibly gratifying for us because of all those obstacles weve had to overcome to get to this point. Once a boat is in good shape and legal its time to go to work, but what to offer? Gumbs and Vos already had a lot going for them. We offered the experience of authentic West Indian history. A classic West Indian sloop with no winches, no windlasses, a rustic historical Caribbean sailing vessel, Gumbs said. He added, We love to sail, we provide exceptional service, and we really care that every guest feels like theyve truly tasted a little bit of paradise. Food and drink are an important part of any day charter. On Tradition lobster, champagne and ne wines are available. And the boat tailors excursions to individual needs including romantic weddings. Gumbs and Vos are passionate about what they do and share a genuine love of sailing and the sea. Running a successful day charter business is not for the faint of heart. Captain Gumbs offers the following advice to those wanting to follow in their footsteps. Be passionate about providing great service and exceptional experiences. Pay attention to the details of maintaining your boat, of all the safety concerns that come with having guests on board, and of the products you provide. Know that during the season youre probably not going to have much of a life outside of the business. Know also that it is a weather driven business and some weeks youre going to have to reschedule a number of excursions because it simply is not safe for the boat or your guests to be out on the water.

Weather conditions were perfect for close competition during the 52 races held in Oranjestad harbor, the islands capital. This year, the annual Budget Marine Cup was not awarded to a single boat or competitor but to the Foundation Youth Sailing Aruba, a sailing school dedicated to teaching the 7 14 year olds about the safety and fun of sailing. The award was given in recognition of their efforts to promote safe sailing in Aruba. The Optimist 1 class was won by Jort Hartmans, followed by Danique Prins and Tjerk Prinsen, respectively. In Optimist 2, the win went to Jesper Prins. Tijn Hartmans nished second and Timon Prins, third. Fierce competition amongst the yachts saw Dash from Curaao, skippered by Remco van Dortmondt, hold on to last years title as fastest yacht in the eet. He was followed by Nawati from Bonaire skippered by Werner Haan. These two managed to outwit the Aruban yacht La Ding and the local knowledge of Captain Henk Werner who had to settle for third place. The new windward/leeward courses, designed by race ARUBA INTERNATIONAL REGATTA OPTIMIST SAILORS WIN BUDGET MARINE CUP director Anthony Hagedoorn, ensured fast tactical races. In close racing in Beach Cat class, Diederik Kamerling and Henk Hankart beat Aat Hoek and Theo Kok with only one point difference in the score after ve races. Frenk van Kan and Patrick Melchiors nished third. The sunsh class was won by the Aruban Champion Richard van der Wal, followed by Ton Nuijten from Bonaire and Robbie Ferron from St. Maarten. In the windsurng classes, Jean Paul da Silva, a promising windsurfer from Curaao, won both the downwind slalom and the long distance in the Junior division. Ethan Westera from Aruba did the same in the Super Junior division. Race director Anthony Hagedoorn overcame initial doubts about the regattas new location and after careful study decided it was in fact the perfect venue. In an exchange of emails with regatta founder Eric Mijts, Hagedoorn said the feedback was nothing short of amazing and that Robbie Ferron, from Budget Marine, mentioned that the organization was of very high caliber and he could not remember the last time he had so much fun in a regatta. Coming from him [Mr. Ferron], it says a lot to me and is something we can both be very proud of, Hagedoorn said. The 2014 Aruba International Regatta will take place August 8, 9 and 10.
