10 ALLATSEA.NET NOVEMBER 2013 Editors Log The rallies are coming! Yes, its the time of year when ”eets of boats from Europe and the US descend on the Caribbean. The ARC, the Caribbean 1500, the Salty Dawg and the new Christmas Caribbean Rally are all heading our way. Having studied the rallies and what makes them tick, I have nothing bad to say about them. The oceans are there to be sailed on and not everyone wants to go it alone. The ARC was the “rst, they set the bar and they set it high. Any rally that doesnt measure up to their standard would struggle to survive. One thing I noted about this years rallies is the number of families taking part. Its heartwarming to see youngsters crossing oceans with mum and dad. Just think about how everyone on board will bene“t from the experience, even when the going gets tough. Ive seen youngsters who have recently crossed an ocean swagger up the dock with the con“dence of an old tar, and rightly so. And it sure gives the kids a leg up when the schoolteacher asks the class to write about what they did during the holidays. The Christmas Caribbean Rally caught my attention for another reason. They have set the minimum boat length at 21.5ft (6.5m). That is a brave move and one to be admired. The trend is now for bigger, more expensive, and more complex yachts and its unfortunate that people with smaller boats and a limited budget are shunned by the established rallies. The argument that small boats have no place on a big ocean is one I have heard many times and one to which I do not subscribe. In 2014 Stokey Woodalls Atlantic Circuit (SWAC) International Sailing Rally will add to the numbers and All At Sea will bring you news of this new event in a future edition. Beginning on p50, you can read about the rallies that are happening now. Its not often that words escape me but the Americas Cup left me dumb. I was one of those who said it was nonsense and wouldnt watch it, yet I was glued to the online stream for every race. For the reclusive, let me tell you about the AC 72 catamarans. They levitate, they ”y, they soar and they should scare any normal sailor to death. This is maritime technology gone mad and not what the US Coast Guard had in mind when issuing a 100 ton captains license. That billionaire Larry Ellisons defenders, Oracle Team USA, had but one American onboard struck me as odd but it did add to the entertainment when the onboard microphones picked up what the crew were saying. On the “nal race, Ben Ainslie bellowing at the grinders to work your Gary E. Brown, Editor arse offŽ (not ass) set him aside as a Brit, and so broad was skipper Jimmy Spithills Australian twang that I reached for my tucker bag. The highlight for Caribbean sailors was the presence onboard Oracle of Shannon Falcone (story p77) and it was terri“c to see someone in the crowd at Americas Cup Park waving the Antiguan ”ag. Larry Ellisons ability to levitate would have come in handy in the boatyard when they told me their crane was broken and unable to lift out my dead engine. Lacking the resources of the Oracle design team, it was back to basics: Shearlegs and a block and tackle. I built the legs without dif“culty from wood found in the boatyard, and the four part block and tackle I had already. Now all that was required was a drop of sweat and a bit of swearing. Im happy to report that the engine came out of the boat with ease and at the time of going to press was in the workshop being assessed by experts who will decide whether it should live again or best become an anchor. One thing I do know, the engine didnt levitate but my money is hovering and heading for the window. THE ORACLE SAYS RALLY AROUND THE SHEARLEGSSee you on the water! Never mind a crane, pass the block and tackle

22 ALLATSEA.NET NOVEMBER 2013 News CARIBBEAN NEWS A BRIEF LOOK INTO THE HAPPENINGS OF OUR WORLD Island Water World open new store in French St. MartinCaribbean marine store, Island Water World, has opened a new branch in French St. Martin. Located in the former museum building between the St. Martin Tourism Of“ce and Air Caraibes, the Marigot store is within easy walking distance of Marina Port Royale and local boatyards. The new store will carry all the familiar products of their Flagship store in Dutch Sint Maarten, but with additional emphasis on French marine equipment. Prices at both stores are the same. Speaking to the St. Maarten Daily Herald, Island Water World General Manager Birgit Rthel, said: We hope to reinforce our branding on the French market; it is something we are working on. We believe with this store being close to the marine industry and French cruisers we can achieve this goal and bring more quality to the French side.Ž The store is in the capable hands of manager Valerie Leroy. A business partner of longstanding, Ms Leroy ran an outlet for Island Water World at the nearby Fort Louis Marina, and has a loyal following of customers and understanding of the industry. Back to School Regatta 2013 NANNY CAY, BVI … Teddy Nicolosi of the USVI was the overall winner and Nathan Haycraft scored a victory in the Green Fleet when 21 optimist sailors gathered at Nanny Cay for the annual Back to School Regatta in September. Sailed in near perfect weather conditions with an interesting southerly angle to the wind, the race committee chose to run windward/leeward courses with downwind “nishes so that the line was right off the jetty, making it excellent for spectators. Thad Lettsome led for most of the races however one bad score and a protest in race 5 cost him the overall win, but he still championed the Blue Fleet. Rayne Duff, in his last White Fleet regatta, took first in that age category and third overall. Mia Nicolosi from USVI was top girl. Volunteers prepared an excellent BBQ lunch served on the deck at nanny cay with Ceres juice donated by Proudly African. Nanny Cay and Budget Marine donated in”atable markers for the regatta. Awards were made by Green VI glass blowing studio in Cane Garden Bay. Island Water World store, Marigot.

24 ALLATSEA.NET NOVEMBER 2013 News The Jost Van Dyke Preservation Society and Endeavour IIThe Jost Van Dykes Preservation Society is proud to announce that it will launch Endeavour II an original 32ft sailing vessel that is based on the traditional sailing sloops that once plied the waters of the BVI, in November. Once launched, the vessel will focus as a ”oating classroom offering environmental education, dive training and sail training activities for Virgin Islands youth. The launch party and vessel christening ceremony is scheduled for November 30 on Jost Van Dyke. For more information, visit: or www.face Email: susanjvdps@gmail.comNew Budget Marine Chandlery in Jolly Harbour, AntiguaThe doors are open on the new Budget Marine Chandlery in Jolly Harbour. The purpose build 5,000 sq foot facility will take over from the facility in which Budget Marine has been active for the past 20 years. The building was constructed in a record seven months. The team of builders “nished ahead of schedule, completing construction to a high standard and allowing Budget Marine to move in and settle down before the yachting season takes off. The new facility already boasts the largest range of marine products in Antigua and will now make it possible to expand that range of products substantially thus increasing the stay periods of yachts in Antigua and boosting employment. Budget Marine Antigua will also be opening a new location in English Harbour to serve the yachting sector there. This facility will open in November and will ensure that the advanced stock management systems that Budget Marine operates will bring bene“t to that major yachting centre of the Caribbean, a press release said. The new Budget Marine Chandlery in Jolly Harbour, Antigua Endeavour II Spectacular Sardinia win for St. Maarten sailor Bus Island Water World-sponsored sailor Frits Bus of St. Maarten helmed the 49.80m (163.4ft) Perini Navi ketch, Silencio, to a second victory in the third and “nal race of the Super Yacht Regatta in Porto Cervo, Sardinia, in September. With a victory on day one Bus and crew took Overall Honors. It was light, shifty conditions in the strait between the Island of Sardinia and the French Island of Corsica,Ž said Bus. The yachts where sent around an island and rocks. Light patches everywhere and some pressure areas made the yacht try different tactics.Ž


NOVEMBER 2013 ALLATSEA.NET 25 Silencio will return to Caribbean in time for the St. Barths Bucket Regatta at the end of March when Bus will again take the helm. Speaking to All At Sea Bus played down his roll as winning helmsman and credited the crew with the victory.

But with a record 32 race entries at their Hobie Cat Challenge on September 8th … which was their third race already this year … it would seem that the PCYC has become the go to place for Hobie cat match racing in Grenada. The September roster included many return racers, but also a lot of new names. From “rst-timers to seasoned pros, singles, doubles, ladies, men and youths, there was a real mix of racers out on the course. We normally cap the races at 24 entries, but the races are always good fun and we hate to turn anyone away, so we managed to squeeze in another eight races,Ž said David Royce, PCYCs Vice-Commodore and Race Committee Chairman. If attendance continues to grow, we might have to look at purchasing more Hobie cats!Ž he added. Congratulations to race winners Kenzo Szyjan (1st) and Mike Bingley (2nd), both of whom went home with winner certi“cates at previous match races. The PCYC would like to thank Le Phare Bleu Marina for providing the venue, and all the racers and spectators who came out for another great day of racing.

28 ALLATSEA.NET NOVEMBER 2013THE SINGING SAILOR BY CAPN FATTY GOODLANDERSailing Humor Every once in a while some idiot that Im not particularly fond of begins to like me, and so I sing for em. That usually solves the budding friendship problem right there. To put it another way, I have a talent for making Bob Dylan songs sound worse than even he does! All of which wouldnt be bad if I could play guitar. I cant, hardly. Lead guitar requires knowing some musical notes, whatever they are. Bass guitars are unfathomable …they dont even have the correct number of strings. Playing rhythm guitar means keeping a beat, which is another total mystery to me. Dont feel bad, Fatty,Ž the St. Thomian calypsonian Mighty Whitey once told me on a drunken, bar-crawling night in Brenners Bay, youre just tone-deaf. A lot of people are. Its nothing to be ashamed of unless you play a musical instrument.Ž Exactly. I actually played my guitar for Mighty Whitey a couple of times and Im here to tell you he was such a kind, empathetic, loving fellow that he never allowed it to affect our relationship. Barefoot Davis, another St. Thomas guitar picker, also tried to spin nice about my playing. Dont let the critics get you down, Fatty, no matter how accurate they may be!Ž I assume he was trying to cheer me up. Yes, playing music is, for a guy like me, ego-bruising. When I announced to my wife Carolyn that I was going to start playing professionally, she went behind my back and secretly purchased stock in companies that manufacture ear plugs. Hardly a ringing endorsement. Whenever I practice on my guitar in the cockpit, she sticks her head out from down below and says, Maybe we should run the engine awhile to charge the batteries and bring down the refrigerator?Ž Even my own brother, Morgoo the Magni“cent, is a critic. When I told him I was gonna play in bars, he quipped, You mean, like, just after they announce Last Call?Ž Luckily, theres something called open mic night on almost all the islands of the Lesser Antilles. Heres how it works. Lets say a bar has warm beer, watered down rum, ”at champagne, dirty ice, stale rice, and rude staff. All of the above tends to ensure that bar is empty, right? But if the owners are smart, they realize they aimed too high for regular customers, not just losers. So they lower their sights and invite the local musicians. Yes, alcoholic musicians are the last resort of the poorly managed liquor establishment. The PR spin is, of course, both very cool and totally untrue. In theory, the musicians draw in the music lovers and its all one big love fest between artist and patron. Nothing AND OTHER SAD TALES OF MY ETERNAL INEPTITUDEFatty giving the fish an ear bashing


NOVEMBER 2013 ALLATSEA.NET 29could be further from the truth. The sobering fact is that open mic nights are intended to bring in the musicians who, realizing how awful they sound, have worked up a powerful, suicidal thirst that needs immediate drowning. Sure, there are a few non-players present, but those are just the ugliest of the self-loathing suicides who hate themselves so much they decide, I think Ill go and hear Capn Fatty warble the long version of Hey Jude that awkwardly morphs into Puff the Magic Dragon and then, even weirder, Mister Tambourine Man and that should gave me the courage to pull the trigger. You learn the darndest things if you play as badly as I do. For instance, one night in St. Croix about half the audience walked out in the middle of my “rst song. I noted those departing tended to be younger. I guess Im not a hit with the younger generation,Ž I said weepily to the manager of The Creepy Cruzan as I emptied a nickel and two cents out of my Big Tip Jar. Naw, it aint that,Ž consoled the manager, its just the older folks can turn down their hearing aids.Ž Boy, you really know how to nurture the talent,Ž I said glumly. Dick Solberg of The Sun Mountain band can be diplomatic. Once, after jamming with him awhile, he noted that I had enthusiastically played some of the right notes, even if, alas, they werent played at the correct time.Ž St. John songbird Joe Colpitt is another local musician I rely on for advice. Oh, I wouldnt do that,Ž he said quickly in response to a query about what type of recording equipment I should buy. Chris Carsell is yet another Love City musician who tries to put a good spin on my guitar picking. Fatty and I have played together at a lot of bars which are now out of business,Ž he once said while introducing me. Still, every dog has his day. I was playing nightly at Amandas Coffee and Tea in Langkawi, Malaysia, when a tall, lanky cowboy strolled in. He looked totally out of place among the Muslims. I mean, it was as if hed fallen out of a casting call for Deadwood. There was still hay in his hair, for gosh sakes. You could smell the camp“re on him. He walked, well, saddle-sore. There was mud on his chaps. His boots were hand-tooled leather (later, I discover they had Topsider soles). Howdy, Pardna,Ž I said. Whats your name, game, and where bouts you from?Ž He was shy, and liked to put an hour or two between his softly uttered words. Gene,Ž he said, and grinned as if it was such a huge joke that it would make his horse belly-laugh aloud.

It was the “rst time Id ever been in front of a music audience that I didnt feel sorry for. It was an odd, unaccustomed feeling. Things went extremely well for a couple of months, and then I had to sail away. Gene half-heartedly played for a couple of more nights until he was told, Youre good, but youre no Capn Fatty!Ž Gene then wandered away into the Malaysian night; to the sorrowful soundtrack of a lonesome cowboys harmonica, softly playing to the rhythm of a horses fading clip-clops.

Hed backed up every loser in America and Europe, and worked his way down the list of global guitar players until he was backing up yours truly in a mostly-empty bar (well, empty coffee shop) in Malaysia. Gene plays like an angel. He is, by far, the most talented guitarist I have ever had the honor of sitting next to. It was immediately apparent that, if I wanted to sound really, really great, all I had to do was turn my guitar off. Gene could easily play twice as good as me while not even breaking a sweat.

The ”eet of 46 boats, with nearly 200 anglers representing eight countries, released an incredible 145 blue marlin in four days of “shing. We had an excellent tournament and broke records this year,Ž says Chairman Miguel Donato. For example, this is the “rst year in the last 10 to 15 that one boat has released 10 blue marlin.Ž Puerto Ricos Jaime Fullanas Bolita a 74ft Buddy Davis, was the winning boat. Not only did team Bolita release the most “sh … 10 blue marlin (2,775 points), but Fullana also won Top Angler, both local and overall, for his four releases (1,110 points). Whats more, the teams total of eight releases on the third day of tournament “shing earned Fullana the keys to a brand new Smart Car, courtesy of Garage Isla Verde. There isnt anything better than winning this tournament,Ž says Fullana. We released three blue marlin the “rst day and two the second.

The angling team aboard Bolita included Fullana, his nephew Antonio, Miguel Munoz and international anglers Michael Kelly and famed marine artist, Carey Chen, both from the U.S., and Javier Pira from Guatemala. The second and third top boats, Christina (2,275 points) and Anamarina (1,950 points), “shed exclusively with 30lb test line and released seven and six blue marlin, respectively. The release of a blue marlin on 30lb test earned anglers 325 points each while a blue released on 50lb test counted for 230 points. In the angler rankings, after Fullana, Carlos Luis Rodriguez earned second place with 1,015 points and Juan Quintero “nished third with 975 points. Elias Ignacio Cruz (975 points), from Ecuador, was named Top International Angler. Team Ecuador also won Top International Team with 1,800 points.

36 ALLATSEA.NET NOVEMBER 2013 Cruising LAS PERLAS UNSPOILED NATURE NEAR PANAMA CITY Only 35 nautical miles from Panama City the archipelago of the Las Perlas lies in the Paci“c. Despite their proximity to the metropolis the 15 islands and countless islets are a relatively untouched wilderness. Only Contadora has regular air and ferry connections and some tourism. Most of the other islands are uninhabited and entice visitors with powdersugar beaches, protected anchorages, jungle vegetation and millions of seabirds. While most yachts on the way to the Paci“c transit the Panama Canal in March, we decided for an earlier date, to leave enough time for exploring the Paci“c coast of Panama. The dry season starts in December and steady northerly trade winds make reaching the Perlas … and the hops between the islands … pleasant sailing. January and February are also good times to visit the Perlas. However, in March the ”eet of yachts bound for the Galapagos crowd into the anchorages and, during the rainy season, from May to November, the weather becomes unstable with lots of thunderstorms, strong winds from STORY AND PHOTOS BY BIRGIT HACKLdifferent directions and humid calms in between. We reached the Perlas from the northwest and anchored on the protected southern side of Contadora, off the air“eld. Contadora used to be a US Army base and a lot of the infrastructure dates from that time. In the meantime it has been developed for tourism, ritzy villas, hotels and apartments dot the shore. There are several mini-markets, a gas station and some restaurants, everything within walking distance on paved roads where visitors can stroll unconcerned even at night as theres very little crime. There are few cars around, but lots of golf buggies that can also be rented. The tourist of“ce boasts lots of activities: cycling, jet ski rental, kayak tours, snorkeling, diving, bird watching and whale watching. But even without joining a tour there are plenty of opportunities to watch wildlife. For instance, in December, each morning and evening, young stingrays made a spectacular show in the anchorage, jumping high into the air, doing back-”ips and ”uttering frantically with their little wings before splashing back into the water.


NOVEMBER 2013 ALLATSEA.NET 37On the western side of the archipelago well protected anchorages can be found in the channel between Chapera and Mogo Mogo and between Bayoneta, Casaya and Viveros. The little islands are rather low, covered with lush vegetation and surrounded by white, golden and black beaches, just perfect for a beach BBQ. Rugged volcanic rocks that pierce the waves like sharp black teeth make for a perfect postcard motif, but also remind the sailor to navigate carefully. When planning routes in the Perlas its wise to keep an eye on the tide tables, as the tidal range reaches more than “ve meters (17 feet) during spring tides. In anchorages off beaches the bottom is usually a mixture of sand and mud with excellent holding. After cruising the Caribbean, tidal waters were a new but interesting experience for us. The fact that the landscape changes every few hours was fascinating: reefs turn into islands, beaches appear and rock bridges emerge between islands. We stayed for a week on our favorite islets: Isletas des Platanal. We hiked around the islets at low Pitufa anchored off Isla Canas


38 ALLATSEA.NET NOVEMBER 2013tide watching herons and egrets hunting for trapped sea creatures in the tidal pools. Often the seas around Pitufa seemed to boil, when large predators drove shoals of tiny “sh to the surface with pelicans, cormorants, frigate birds and seagulls all getting their share of the “sh buffet. We were lucky a few times catching mackerel, mahi mahi and tuna with our trolling lure. We skipped the islands of Pedro Gonzales (only anchorages open to the north) and San Jose (a private island with apparently good anchorages in the southeast) and concentrated on exploring the main island of the archipelago instead. Isla del Rey is 15 miles long and by far the largest of the Perlas. While the swell breaks violently on the rough western coast, the east coast offers nice anchorages. The cruising guides mention the possibility of provisioning in the village of Esmeralda in the south of the island and the chance to take the dinghy up a river in the nearby anchorage at Rio Cacique. We found the village La Ensenada much friendlier though. The local minimarket is as mini as it gets, but as soon as we started asking around for veggies the villagers brought us produce from their own gardens and we could buy “sh on the beach. The nearby anchorage at Isla Caa in between black rock needles is the most spectacular in the Perlas. Five miles further north the anchorage between Espiritu Santo and Rey is calm enough to carry out work up the mast. Circumnavigating Espiritu Santo by dinghy reveals beaches with white sand and picturesque rocky islets. Opposite the anchorage a river ”ows into the sea. We motored upriver by dinghy at high tide and then paddled on the outgoing current silently back through the rainforest. A magical experience: birds chirp and squeak unseen in the trees, then suddenly ”utter into sight, wading birds sit on low-hanging branches and crabs shuf”e over the roots of the mangroves. Cruisers on the way to destinations in the Paci“c should allow suf“cient time for this fascinating archipelago.

40 ALLATSEA.NET NOVEMBER 2013 Racing Circuit PROFESSIONALIZATION OF SAILING EVENTS IN THE CARIBBEANWorldwide trends are now seeing major boating and sailboat racing events increasingly organized by professional, pro“t-driven organizations rather than volunteer nonpro“ts. In the Caribbean of the 1980s, everything was run by volunteers: Antigua Sailing Week, Nicholsons Boat Show, BVI Spring Regatta, Tobago Race Week, Bonaire Regatta, and the St Thomas Rolex Regatta, to name a few. Everywhere enthusiastic volunteers took the lead and imbued the events with passion driven by the superb boating conditions in the Caribbean. Given the newness and excitement, a special spirit and energy emanated from those events. Today that has largely changed and most events have some degree of paid/professional involvement and, inevitably, a high percentage of their revenue comes from sponsorship. Recently we have seen the introduction of several professionally run, apparently for pro“t, events like the Loro Piana Regatta in Virgin Gorda, the RORC 600 and the Bucket Regattas. Increasingly they are owned by outof-region entities with favorable connections and a good understanding of the source markets. It is signi“cant that most of the newer regattas are for profit and/or professionally run and it is not surprising that their focus has been the higher-end audience. The professional nature of these events is likely to remain with us. Increasingly they will become a clear and tested business model, built partly around entities with high-end sponsors that see value in linking their names to these events, and participants that represent the pinnacle of “nancial success in yachting. Many of the smaller events remain largely volunteerbased and, when compared to the larger events, will suffer from less marketing dollars, less quality of organization and smaller numbers. Often they are based in territories where local government has aspirations for increasing their marine tourism and have an interest in raising the standards of local regattas. Events aimed at youth … and where the sport BY ROBBIE FERRON PHOTO: OCEANMEDIAWithout careful planning some regattas will be left blowing in the wind


NOVEMBER 2013 ALLATSEA.NET 41 of sailing is central … are going to be seeking sponsorship from a very different type of sponsor with very different dollar levels. Regional yachting organizations are more likely to be dominated by the well-funded regattas. What will happen, and what is already happening, is that these low revenue (usually focused on local residents and youth) events will be left in the hands of volunteers and be neglected by those organizations driven by pro“t and other motives. They will be forced to “nd new formats. Besides changes in organizational structure, events are remodeling as a result of technology and the type of participants. Events are now run more effectively, operated with sophisticated computer-driven results and other data along with higher quality marketing and communication skills. In early Caribbean regattas you were often pleased to get your results late in the evening and, because you expected to wait so long, you joined your competitors at a bar close to the results board and the consequent parties became legendary. Today you can receive all the results on your iPhone and professional sailors can go to bed early to satisfy the crew boss. Inevitably, the essence of the party/regatta that the Caribbean is well known for is changing. The top racing sailors are paid and cannot afford to risk their positions with partying. Partiers who enjoy both sides of the race/party fence are present but they are less likely to have much chance of competing on the race course. Organizers now face the challenge of pulling participants away from their mother-ships and luxury hotels and getting them to mix socially and enjoy the parties that originally made Caribbean regattas famous and attractive. Running regattas and boating events in the Caribbean will evolve into a business like any other, whether it is for pro“t or not. Like any business, success will depend on adapting to the market and the interest of participants, dealing with contradictions, and sparking the excitement that drives participation. The challenge to the sport of sailing in the Caribbean is to ensure that the big money events dont suck the funds and organizational talent away from the basic level of the sport where Caribbean residents, of all ages, enjoy simple events on smaller boats at manageable costs. Successful events will be those that adapt to changing conditions and, by levering the advantages of their location, promote and enhance their destination as a whole.

42 ALLATSEA.NET NOVEMBER 2013 Caribbean Life TO BUY A BOAT BY RANDY WEST The 75ft Peter Spronk-designed catamaran Ppalu has, since her launching in 1978, been my favorite sailing yacht in the whole world. With her tiny transoms and ketch rig, clipper bows accented with lap-strake topsides, comfortable high speeds, large deckhouse and deck space, there could be no other. I was at her launching in St. Maarten when, together with two hundred others, we carried the yacht from the boatyard and into the waters of Simpson Bay Lagoon. From that day on, I tried to buy that boat. But 20 years of serious negotiations failed until a miracle happened. Negotiations were always my fear. Luckily, I found Chris Simpson. Well, I didnt “nd him, my girlfriend, HQ, found him for me. She works in a lighthouse/museum in Ponce Inlet, Florida, and one day a very yachtie-looking chap came in to peruse the museum. HQ started up a conversation and he explained that yes, he owned a yacht and had just purchased it in Tortola. HQ told him how, for 20 years, I had been trying to buy a boat that was based there. He in turn said to contact Chris Simpson at BVI Yacht Sales as the man knew every boat that was for sale and each of their stories. He then produced a telephone number. I called, and a warm and friendly English accent replied. I explained my quest.

Small world, I thought. It took a year. In the scheme of things that was not a long time; after all, they had not even listed the boat for sale. The owners agreed almost immediately. The price was right. The yachts Captain, Odell, recognized the dire need to save the boat through restoration. She is a part of Caribbean history,Ž he would say. The owners wanted to “nish out the charter season and I agreed to ”y down for an in-water survey. However, at the end of the season they balked and I was back to square one. Chris Simpson continued on the job and the following season con“rmed the go ahead for the sale. I arrived and surveyed the boat with Geoffe Cooke from the Work Bench at Virgin Gorda Yacht Services. Ppalu was sound enough and forward went the sale. I really didnt think it would happen but Chris Simpson did. Contracts and extension, accompanied by signatures, went back and forth by email. I sent a 10% deposit just to show that I was serious. After the third extension I was going to give up. With two days left, I knew nothing would transpire when low and behold an email from Chris Simpsons wife Karen arrived stating that all the paperwork had come together. She had been unbelievable in her title search. Thirty years of West Indian paperwork is not that easy a trail to follow. Producing the documents is altogether another story. But the deal was a done! HQ and I immediately changed plans and ”ew to the BVI where we found all the paperwork supplied by the buyer in order. I signed a one-page agreement and that was it. Game, set and match; the boat was mine. It is never supposed to be that easy. I love BVI Yacht Sales! Oh, I did have to pay a pittance to cancel the registration of the owning company but that was the only extra of which I was so afraid. I must admit I had asked Chris Simpson if there would be any more details to take care off. He said probably not although he did warn me about a possible fee for the paper chase ƒ It didnt materialize. Having lived in the West Indies for 35 years, I had my doubts but Chris words were accurate. Kudos to the honest broker,Ž is all I have to say. There you have it. If you are a madman like me and “nd yourself enamored with a famous yacht, well, patience and perseverance is the key. Twenty years is a long time to chase, I must admit. Had it not been for Chris Simpson, I would still be chasing that dream. The moral of the story: If you want to buy a boat ƒ get a good broker.

46 ALLATSEA.NET NOVEMBER 2013 In the second part of our series on what to look for in a center console boat, we talked with our panel of experts about construction. Heres what they had to say:Joan Maxwell, Regulator BoatsWeight, which to us is “berglass content, is the most important thing. Heavier boats ride better in rough conditions. The downside to weight is that the boat typically will not be as fast in calm water, but lets face it, there are more rough days offshore than slick-calm ones! Construction should include components that have been tested to hold up in the harsh marine environment: Duetsche wire connectors, so there isnt corrosion and loss of electrical power; easy access to through-hull “ttings, pumps and hoses, so they can periodically be inspected. Look out for wood in the transom, stringers and decks. Powerboating WHAT TO LOOK FOR IN A CENTER CONSOLE: BY DOUG SIMMONSCONSTRUCTION Potential rot is the main culprit, leading to expensive repairs later on.Ž Ken Clinton, Intrepid BoatsIts important to understand how the “berglass parts are built. You dont need to be a chemist to understand how theyre constructed and what materials theyre using. Have the manufacturer explain what they use, how they use it and why they use it. Is there any wood in the construction? Are they using pure vinylester resins? Are they infusing or hand-laying everything verses using a chopper gun? Its also important to ask what theyre using to put their individual “berglass parts together.

How all of the major “berglass pieces come together determines if they stay together.ŽLes Stewart, Jr., ContenderWe recommend you ask what kind of resins and “berglass are used and educate yourself on that, so you understand the broad spectrum. Do they use balsa core or composite core? Wood is superior for hull sides, when things are done correctly. We “nd it decreases weight and increases the integrity of the hull. You have to use more composite to achieve the same strength. Is it a two-piece or three-piece construction? Threepiece construction is very sturdy. Also, ask about the transom and stringers. Composite transoms and stringers keep the weight down and are strong. Our stringer system is built for each boat, so we have the ability to move things around to add features and increase fuel capacity yet maintain an optimal center of gravity.ŽBryan Harris, EvergladesAnother question is do you want an unsinkable boat or not? There are probably only “ve manufacturers who make unsinkable center consoles. How important is that to you? Because that level of safety and peace of mind costs money. We build our boats around pre-molded foam. We take solid pieces of foam that we lay down in the hull bottom and lay the liner around that, then we vacuum it all together. This means our boats end up being solid, one-piece boats. Other boats remain different components, and things tend Precise gelcoat application at Regulator Marine.

We use PVC core and urethane transoms, and everything is throughbolted. By doing so, you ensure the longevity of the product. Also, vacuum bagging the lamination can avoid cavities and ensure the proper ratio of resins. Its always a good idea to ask about the engineering, especially these days. We spend a lot of time on the computer before a plug is ever built, seeing how far we can push the design. This makes for a more substantial and balanced “nished product.

Youve got a slip already assigned when you arrive, fuel arranged, weather predictors there, and customs there to meet you on the other end in Tortola rather than having to take a taxi to the customs of“ce.ŽWhat did you like least? The anxiety of waiting for the best weather window prior to departure,Ž answers Floridas Paul Geppert, who participated in the Caribbean 1500 with wife Monica and friends aboard the Tayana 42, Moonshadow Being delayed and then hoping that crew has enough time off to complete the voyage.Ž Minnesotas Scott Brigham, who, with wife Jennifer, sailed their Valiant 40, Pendragon on last years Caribbean 1500, adds, We had a very rough Gulf Stream crossing, so if pressed hard, I would say that the rally needs to really help people understand what they can expect with the weather Scott and Jennifer Brigham aboard their Valiant 40, Pendragon in the Caribbean 1500

I believe its about providing realistic expectations.Ž The ”ip side to the bene“ts of cruising in a group are some strict rules you need to comply with (safety and otherwise), explains Voahangy s Steen. There are also massive crowds during social events (it can be fun at the start, but frustrating in the end, when realising that some of the crew behave fairly badly), and a lot of bureaucracy.Ž Describe your most memorable moment of the rally?Excitement and a feeling of belonging to something big at the race start in Las Palmas is what I remember fondly,Ž notes Voahangy s Steen. We took off with 200-plus other boats. What a sight!Ž Rob Beam, his wife Ginny and three daughters, Hannah (15), Mia (12) and Ellie (10), who sailed their Slocum 43 Pilothouse, Helia in the Caribbean 1500, have vivid memories of crossing the Gulf Stream. I have never been good at estimating wave height, but suf“ce it to say that you would look to starboard while steering and see waves next to you the size of a one story building.Ž Mason-Jones aboard Johanem says one memory sticks in his mind literally. We had a problem mid-Atlantic when one of our crew members got a large rusty “sh hook deeply embedded in his forearm. We could not remove it and were at least six days from land. We radioed nearby ARC boats and by chance found that Ostria only 25 miles away, had a surgeon on board with his medical kit. We rendezvoused. I launched our dinghy and rowed over to collect him and he removed the “sh hook. By the time we reached St. Lucia the scar had nearly healed so we did not get much of a sympathy vote for having lost half a day.Ž For Switzerlands Marina Passet, skipper of the Bavaria 39 Via Con Me the “rst sight of St. Lucias lush green mountains is the most vivid memory. We knew then that we had made it.ŽWhat would you do differently next time?Upgrade alternate power sources to keep batteries topped off, says Moonshadow s Geppert. We did not have enough alternate power sources and relied on running the main engine to charge batteries.Ž Pendragon s Brigham adds, I would get my ham license earlier and practice more with the ham radio.

56 ALLATSEA.NET NOVEMBER 2013 What could be more salty than the Salty Dawg Rally? The Dawg starts November 4th from the Blue Water Yachting Center in Hampton, Virginia, and “nishes in the British Virgin Islands, or the Bahamas, or the destination of your choice! Is that salty or what? Since the “rst event the Salty Dawg Rally (SDR) has prospered, going from 32 boats in 2011 to more than 100 in 2013. This is one of the most relaxed rallies on the calendar. For instance, there is no formal inspection of each boat, the organizers insisting it is the responsibility of each skipper to have proper safety equipment and to ensure that the vessel is prepared for the passage. The rally does provide weather information and they run a week-long series of seminars in advance of the rally. The SDR was the idea of Linda and Bill Knowles and their Jack Russell pup Brie, the original Salty Dawg. The Knowles work tirelessly to make the event a success and they have hit on a formula that is attractive to seasoned bluewater sailors and those going offshore for the “rst SALTY DAWGS SAIL ON BY THE EDITOR Linda and Bill Knowles at the Salty Dawg Rally booth in Newport Party time!

When All At Sea asked Linda Knowles if they would be introducing an entry fee for future rallies, now that the event is growing, she replied with an emphatic NO!Ž However, other things change from year to year, as can be seen by the introduction of the Spring Rally. This takes the boats back to the US and has already almost doubled in size since last year. We have had a great response in the Spring Rally with 25 boats returning with us this year,Ž Linda says. We spend ten days at North Sound at the Bitter End Yacht Club, and Leverick Bay, before heading to Nanny Cay Marina for a few days prior to departure.Ž Theres more for Salty Dawgs than a sail to the Caribbean, as Linda explains. We have added events in Hampton; North Sound, the Bitter End and Leverick Bay. We have an Annual Salty Dawg 4th of July celebration in Bristol, RI, with the longest running 4th of July Celebration in the country. We now have seminars in Annapolis and, of course, we will have our 2nd Annual Salty Dawg Annapolis Rendezvous at Mears Pavilion on October 9. And we have a Womens Round Table in Hampton, to discuss provisioning,Ž Linda adds. New sponsors are a sign of a healthy event and more sponsors support the SDR each year. Linda says they have also made changes to the Board of Directors. We have increased our Board of Directors to seven and are in the process of “ling for tax exempt status as a 501c3 Corporation.Ž More families are taking part in the rally and organizers hope this trend continues. This year we have started a group within the Salty Dawg Rally called the Salty Pups (children). We are planning activities and seminars for them in Hampton, such as knot tying, use of VHF radio, safety at sea, and a scavenger hunt. The list goes on and on!Ž People who have taken part in the SDR have left glowing testimonials on the events website. Iain and Fiona Lewis said: Usually things that sound too good to be true are too good to be true. This is not the case with the SDR. Its run by sailors for sailors giving you all the bene“ts of an organized rally but with none of the downsides such as “xed departure dates or even “xed start or end locations. Even with all this ”exibility there is a great sense of community built within the SDRers and companionship from having the shared joy of sailing and completing the challenge of crossing oceans.Ž Bill Danilczyk also praised the rally. I have to say that the Salty Dawg rally is an incredible rally experience. From the pre-start staging, weather info, seminars and parties, the in transit weather brie“ngs and check-ins, to the arrival parties and discounts. The Salty Dawg Rally has saved me well over $1000 while cruising in the BVI this winter.Ž The Dawg wouldnt be the Dawg without Dawgs of the genuine canine variety sailing along.

58 ALLATSEA.NET NOVEMBER 2013 CHRISTMAS CARIBBEAN RALLY 2013 ITS NEW!BY THE EDITOR It seems not a year goes by without a new transatlantic rally is announced. This is hardly surprising when you look at the success of the Atlantic Rally for Cruisers (ARC). To set up and run a major rally is no easy task. To attract sailors to your new event, you must offer something different. The Christmas Caribbean Rally (CCR), from Lanzarote to Antigua, does just that. Mikaela Meik, events manager for Sailing Rallies, the company behind the CCR, told All At Sea why they created the new event. When we launched, the ARC was the only other transatlantic rally. We completed it ourselves (and also the ARC Europe) … and had a fantastic time! What became clear through was that it was oversubscribed and it is limited to people who can afford to take a large chunk of time off to take part in November and early December. Therefore, people who are working or have children in school or university will “nd it easier to take the time off over Christmas and do the transat. Going over the Christmas holiday period enables a wider selection of people to be involved and crucially means the trade winds are more likely to be fully established making for a better passage. There will be lots more musicŽ adds Mikaela who, like her Sailing Rallies business partner, John Simpson, is an accomplished musician. The thrill of landfall John Simpson and Mikaela Meik of Sailing RalliesPHOTOS COURTESY OF SAILING RALLIES


NOVEMBER 2013 ALLATSEA.NET 59 One difference between the Christmas Rally and the ARC is the lower, 21.5ft (6.5m) LOA size limit. This is the same length of boat as those that take part in the Mini Transat, which this year had 85 yachts racing across the Atlantic. It is perfectly acceptable for smaller boats to cross oceans. Sometimes its the smaller boats that are more likely to need the support that comes with sailing in a rally. Whether youd want to cross an ocean in a 21ft boat is another question!Ž says Mikaela. The decision to allow smaller, well-found boats to sail under the umbrella of a well-organized rally and not be excluded because the owners budget doesnt run to a bigger vessel is welcome. You dont need to be a millionaire and own an expensive boat to take part in one of our rallies,Ž Mikaela adds. The rally say they chose Jolly Harbour, Antigua, as their “nishing point because facilities there are perfect for boats “nishing an ocean passage. F lights are convenient for crew changes and the yachting infrastructure is all ready to cope with demand.Ž Safety is on the minds of every would-be offshore sailor and the CCR are strict on this point. We take safety very seriously and our requirements are based on the ISAF special regulations.Ž Boats will be subject to a safety inspection by the organizers before the start of the event and if an individual yacht fails to meet the basic safety level requirements, their place in the CCR is liable to be withdrawn without a refund. Alan Ryall and his wife Terry … owners of the Island Packet 465, Seminole Wind … are taking part in the rally. Posting on the Sailing Rallies website, Mr Ryall said: We have been splitting our leisure time between the UK and USA for a while now and the Christmas Caribbean Rally seems a great opportunity to achieve an ambition of sailing across the Atlantic. We have chartered pretty much across the world, Caribbean, USA, Indian Ocean and Asia but we have never crossed an ocean on our own keel, so it is a really exciting adventure.Ž No rally is complete without a list of social events. We think social events really compliment the sailing,Ž says Mikaela, so a full social schedule takes place in the Canaries and the Caribbean. This is not just a load of beer and parties … we are musicians ourselves so a great emphasis will be placed on live music (anyone is welcome to bring an instrument), and also the different cultures on each island will be fully incorporated.Ž In keeping with the ARC, the new rally has a racing division. Boats entered include the Volvo Ocean 60 Cuba Libre Sailing Rallies also run a rally around the southern Baltic … The Baltic 4 Nations Rally visits Denmark, Germany, Sweden and Poland. It wont be as warm as the Caribbean,Ž says Mikaela, but it will be just as much fun and also have a great selection of music!

In 2011, Allard Stamm, the owner of Corina IV and I visited Ile a Vache and had a great time getting to know the locals and observing their simple but effective methods of harvesting the fruits of the sea.

We spent the “rst couple days exploring the island and meeting many of the locals, primarily kids. Quite often we would have a ”otilla of dugout canoes off our stern with Haitian and St. Maarten kids alike splashing around in the calm water behind the boat. Eventually we met Felix, a local who spoke very good English after working in the States for many years. He is busy building a hotel and dive shop in the bay and offered to help us organize the donations. He subsequently introduced us to Henry Caesar, the Mayors brother (the Mayor being off island), who took control of the situation. We set up camp in Henrys yard and decided to take everything there and give it away piecemeal. This proved easier said than done! We loaded the dinghy with over 100 pairs of “ns, 50 masks and snorkels, 14 sails, a solar panel, and a couple of oars. All this was donated by the generous people of St. Maarten and the Scuba Shop in Simpson Bay and Oyster Pond. As we started to carry the gear to the designated area, people began to gather.

There was more than enough to go round. Immediately the beach had young boys and girls trying out their “ns, some for the “rst time ever. The sails came next once the commotion had died down. These were to be given to the “shermen who needed them the most. One of the sails; a Genoa for a 50-foot Beneteau, in good condition, was divided between “ve very happy men.

Highlights of Lemons career with Rockefeller are many. He was at the helm when Rockefellers 12-year-old son released his “rst blue marlin. He took Rockefeller out for a half day of practice the day before the San Juan International when Rockefeller boated a 608lb blue marlin, a “sh that would have won him the tournament if caught the next day. And, in 1992, he was an integral part of Rockefellers Team Alchemist that won the USVI Open/Atlantic Blue Marlin Tournament (ABMT). Win told me to invite some of Allied Marines better customers down to the Virgin Islands to “sh,Ž Lemon says. Thats how I met Sam Jennings. He came down to “sh the July Moon.Ž The two hit it off. When Rockefeller stopped “shing, Jennings hired Lemon to take the helm of his new 58ft Revenge yacht, hull number one and namesake Revenge Their “rst summer “shing in the Virgin Islands was 1994. Sam and I sat down, looked at the calendar, and planned the “shing days,Ž Lemon explains. Thats when I realized I had an opportunity to catch more “sh that I ever had before.Ž The Florida-based Revenge spent four to six months of the year, usually from May or June through October or November, “shing in Virgin Islands waters. Jennings, and often his son Jon, would ”y down and “sh over the full moon or typically 50 to 80 days in a season. We had some stretches that really stand out,Ž Lemon explains. For example, right after Hurricane Marilyn in 1995, we released 26 blue marlin in four days and saw twice as many “sh. It was unbelievable. In 1999, we had a spectacular run of 101 blue marlin in 30 days and in a four-day window released 27 in total with ten “sh alone in one of those days. Then in 2008, Sam released his 1000th blue marlin from aboard Revenge .Ž Revenge with Lemon at the helm and Jennings in the “ghting chair, has won the ABMT “ve times, a record that still stands. After 19 seasons, and the release of over 1800 blue marlin, Jennings retired from “shing last year and put Revenge up for sale. Meanwhile, Lemon is enjoying some free time to visit friends, play tennis and spend time at home with his wife. I have no immediate plans other than to stick with Sam until the boat is sold,Ž says Lemon. I cant see myself committing to a full-time position, because you have to put your heart and soul into your career, but freelancing … yes, and blue marlin “shing … yes. Someday Id like to “sh Cape Verde. Its the great sense of adventure that I love.Ž Carol M. Bareuther, RD, is a St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands based marine writer and registered dietitian.

So, what do you do with your old sails? Donate them to Nutmeg Designs, a sustainable home-furnishings and eco-accessories business based in Road Town, Tortola, where owner Annie MacPhail makes them into fashionable travel and tote bags. MacPhail, who hails from the U.S. state of Connecticut, studied design and marketing in college. In the early 1990s she accepted an offer to work at BVI Yacht Sales. The position and place offered her the best of both worlds: a chance to work in the yachting industry, which she loved, and to use her free time to paint, design and sail. Over the past several years, she developed a line of travel and tote bags made out of discarded cotton tarpaulin that she reconditioned, dyed and embroidered. The “rst fabric I used for upholstery came from Brazil,Ž she explains. As I further developed this line, I looked for other sustainable materials that would work for our designs and also looked right in our own back yard rather than perpetuating the cycle of waste by importing. Thats when we considered the availability and viability of Dacron, nylon CAROL M. BAREUTHER and polyester sailcloth. The BVI is one of the largest sailing charter destinations and certainly has its share of used sail cloth, much of which is discarded when it is old.Ž MacPhail invested in tools and sewing machines and Annie MacPhail

NOVEMBER 2013 ALLATSEA.NET 73 British Virgin Islands started creating products using the sailcloth. She called the islands sail makers. Doyle and Quantum gave her discarded sails and continue to do so. She is also in contact with the Charter Yacht Society and other BVI-based charter companies who generally call to notify MacPhail when they have a disposed of sail. In addition, any sailor who is discarding a sail can give her a call. Shell pick it up, use it and in return give the donator several bags. Once MacPhail has the sails, she cuts and sorts them. The luff and leach lines are pulled and re-used in various ways. Any hardware that can be kept and re-used is also cut out and kept. Then, she cuts the sail into usable pieces, washes it and stores it by weight. She then is able to pick through her inventory for the exact pieces that will work best for a particular design. MacPhails sailcloth line includes various types of totes, wine bags, clothing hampers, small buckets for things like towel storage and large buckets for clothing hampers or shoe baskets on yachts. Many companies the world over make these types of standard utilitarian bags,Ž MacPhail explains. Where we are unique is that I try to think outside the box when using this fabric. I have several bag designs which are more stylish in terms of what women want for a more fashionable handbag. I have developed pendant lights, table lamps and lampshades, storage hangers, even Christmas ornaments and stockings. We try to use as much of the sail as we can. In addition, we are able to brand the products we make out of sailcloth. For example, we just completed 300 totes and wine bags for the BVI Wine and Food Festival in November.Ž In addition to her sailcloth line, MacPhails Nutmeg Designs shop carries a line of rugged furniture made out of reclaimed wood from retired Indian Ocean sailing dhows. While she does import several brands of eco-friendly products, many of her custom one-off pieces are created from marine objects found in the BVI.

74 ALLATSEA.NET NOVEMBER 2013 Antigua The Caribbean Sailing Association (CSA) is withdrawing from the business of running a regatta and taking the best of both worlds. They have done this by awarding the time-honored Caribbean Dinghy Championships (CDC) to the same island for three years while at the same time leaving the door open for the event to travel to other islands as it has in the past. This years CDC will be organized and hosted by the Antigua Yacht Club and Antiguas National Sailing Academy on November 15 to 17 2013. We felt the event needed more continuity and set dates to enable people to schedule and plan in advance in an effort to encourage better participation,Ž explains Kathy Lammers, CSA board member. The plan is to hold the CDC in Antigua (this makes Antiguas third year having hosted the CDC in 2011 and 2012) and then look at other viable venues, including Antigua. Antigua is well equipped with a variety of CARIBBEAN DINGHY CHAMPIONSHIPS CHART A NEW COURSEdifferent dinghies and it is centrally located in the Eastern Caribbean and relatively easy for everyone to get to.Ž This change means the CDC is now CSA-sanctioned rather than a CSA-organized event. In addition to administering the CSA rating rule, one of the CSAs goals is to promote and encourage dinghy sailing throughout the Caribbean. The CDC does this by bringing sailors together from around the Caribbean to compete in a variety of dinghies. This years event sees teams of mixed age groups from juniors to seniors race in Laser Open, Laser Radial, Zoom 8, Optimist and Laser Pico classes. While the CDC is raced in small boats, it has had a very large impact on launching the careers of Caribbean sailors. Numerous sailors who teethed on the CDCs in their youth, have gone on to represent their respective countries at World Championships, at the Central American and Caribbean Games, Commonwealth and Pan Am Games, as BY CAROL M. BAREUTHER FILE PHOTO


NOVEMBER 2013 ALLATSEA.NET 75well as the pinnacle series … the Olympic campaigns,Ž explains CSA board member, Penny McIntyre from Barbados. Barbados has a longstanding history … spanning upwards of 40 years … with the present day CDC, which had its beginning in the 1970s with Bajan and regional sailors competing in wooden Mirror dinghies in Jamaica and St. Vincent. Since 1985, seven islands have hosted the CDC including Barbados and St. Croix. Karen Stanton, past commodore of the St. Croix Yacht Club, who has sent each of her three sons to other islands to compete in the CDC says, The whole concept of the regatta moving from island to island is unique. Actually, it gives a chance to sailors who dont have parents sending them all over the world. The sailors with limited resources get to go to an island as a team and hope to bring back a team trophy.Ž With the watery distance between the islands and the often exorbitant cost of inter-island transportation, it may be easier to keep the CDCs on one island such as Antigua, so that the costs of attending the regatta do not drastically change from year to year, along with the location,Ž Barbados McIntyre says. This may better allow for more Caribbean nations to plan their fundraising. Hopefully, other nations will step forward in the coming years, as it is a great way for youth sailors to see more of the region, but if Antigua prove themselves yet again this November, there may be no need to change the venue each year.Ž For more information and NOR, visit: To enter a team, contact the Antigua Yacht Club: Only one team per country is eligible for entry.

Day sailors, cruisers, kids single-handing and the towering, 131-foot wing sails of the Americas Cup boats. Vying for the 34th Americas Cup, “rst awarded to America in 1851, todays boats are anything but classic. Each carbon-“ber yacht measures 72-feet long, 46-feet wide, weighs 13,000 pounds and is powered by a 13-story carbon-“ber-and-Kevlar wing sail. Suspended on foils made of engineered carbon-“ber, the AC72 ”ies over the water at speeds in excess of 50mph.ANTIGUAS FALCONE AND ORACLE TEAM USA RETAIN AMERICAS CUPSTORY AND PHOTOS BY KATHY BOHANAN ENZERINK


78 ALLATSEA.NET NOVEMBER 2013 The AC72 is considered to be overpowered and shorthanded. With an 11-man team, crew members are exceptional professional racers and multi-talented athletes. Meet Shannon Falcone, a Grinder with Oracle Team USA. Falcone (see Where in the World, p16) grew up sailing and racing. At the age of three, he and his parents left Italy on a 44-foot sailboat, racing their way to the last event of the season, Antiguas Sailing Week. We met a lot of people there,Ž said Falcone, and we just stayed. I was lucky in Antigua. We had ex Cup sailors racing with us and my dad and mentor, Carlo, competed in the 1992 Olympics. I loved the competitive spirit.Ž Seeing the Americas Cup trophy in Auckland, New Zealand during the familys 1999 around-the-world sail piqued his interest and he wanted to be involved. Mike Toppa, my friend and Americas Cup veteran, told me to start with a small team, so I joined Mascal Vone Latino for my “rst campaign,Ž said Falcone. I did every race and gained experience. It was the best advice.Ž Falcone was noticed by the Italian Luna Rossa organization and raced with them for three years before moving to Larry Ellisons Oracle team. At age 32, this is Falcones fourth Americas Cup campaign since 2003. Oracle Team USA is headquartered in a state-of-the-art facility at Pier 80 in San Francisco, close to where Falcone moved three years ago so he could bicycle to work. I love to eat and San Francisco is a cool city with great food,Ž he said. But I dont want to commute. There is too much traf“c.Ž Its a good thing he loves food because Falcone and his teammates train six hours per day, burning as much as 9,000 calories. There is food available to us at all times,Ž he said. We eat all day long plus we carry high-energy drinks, gel caps and bars when were on the boat.Ž Bound by overall weight limitations, six-foot, “ve inch tall Falcone will weigh 225 pounds during the AC Finals. Average crew weight is 204 pounds. Preparing for the Americas Cup is physically grueling; both on and off the water. According to Falcone, race days have shorter on-the-water time but are more mentally intense and pressured. Work days begin early in the morning and often end well into the evening hours. The two Oracle AC72s are assembled before each practice and race, then taken apart at the end of the day. Down from a crew of 17 in the 2007 monohull campaign, the current 11 team members multitask on board and as on-the-ground support. Some work with electronic and electrical systems or boat designs,Ž said Falcone. I work with our personal gear.Ž The skintight full-body suit needs to breathe and allow a great range of motion yet be lightweight and thin. Neoprene it is. The G-Forces are unbelievable on the turns around the marks,Ž said Falcone. We have to hold on or get swept off.Ž But once they stop, the loss of body heat and the ability to stay warm is a challenge. We have massive stay-warm jackets and huddle down in the cockpit, with only our heads in the wind.Ž Falcone has the highest respect for the Oracle syndicate. There are no rock stars,Ž he said. We worked through a lot of trying times, stepped past the limit and became stronger as a team.Ž Antigua Five members of the New York Yacht Club built the state-of-the-art schooner America and sailed it across the Atlantic Ocean to compete against British ships in conjunction with Englands Great Exposition of 1851. America won the 53-mile regatta around the Isle of Wight by eighteen minutes on August 22. The prize was the Hundred Guinea Cup, a two-foot-high silver jug presented by the Royal Yacht Squadron. The trophy was later renamed The Americas Cup. The legendary story of Queen Victoria can be overheard by racing enthusiasts around the Bay. Versions vary, but the essence is while watching America come over the horizon from her royal yacht, the Queen asked her attendant, Who is second?Ž to which he reportedly replied, Your Majesty, there is no second.ŽThe 1995-built replica of the original America heads to the Louis Vuitton Challenger Cup Finals on San Francisco Bay.

80 ALLATSEA.NET NOVEMBER 2013 Grenada GLORIOUS GRENADA CRUISER ROSIE BURR DESCRIBES HER FAVORITE ANCHORAGES IN THE LAND OF SPICE Every year … especially during hurricane season … cruisers ”ock to 12N and Grenadas southern anchorages. Offering everything from sandy beaches and rum shacks to mangrove hurricane holes, there is something to suit everyone. The island is a heady mix of stunning tropical ”ora, quaint colourful houses and warm, welcoming people.Saint GeorgesAlthough not exactly the south coast, St. Georges, the islands colorful capital, is worth mentioning. Days of anchoring inside the lagoon are long gone, the carenage is strictly for local boats and so the only anchorage is outside the lagoon. Holding is extremely variable but good sand can be found in deeper water. Moorings are also available. The water is normally very clear, unlike most of the south-St. Georges has undergone major changes over the last decade with the development of Port Louis Marina. The main anchorage for cruising boats is outside the lagoon and has become more popular over recent years The quiet shaded beach and pristine lapping waters of Morne Rouge Bay often is overlooked by cruisers due to its shallow depths


NOVEMBER 2013 ALLATSEA.NET 81 ern anchorages, and you are just a stones throw from the stunning Grande Anse Beach where anchoring is prohibited. Ashore you have both Port Louis Marina and Grenada Yacht Club with the usual amenities and of course all the shops and sundries that the capital has to offer, including marine stores.Morne Rouge BayAlso known as BBC beach, Morne Rouge Bay is an idyllic spot rarely visited by yachts because of its shoaling anchorage. Only very shallow draft vessels can get in close enough to anchor in good sand. Deeper draft vessels must anchor further out amongst the rubble and coral, making this a fair weather anchorage or day time stop only.True Blue BayTrue Blue Bay Resort with boutique hotel, restaurant, marina, and dive shop can be found at the head of this small bay. Access to the main bus route into town is less than a ten minute walk. The bay can suffer in southerly swells. Moorings are available.Prickly Bay The notoriously rolly Prickly Bay is perhaps Grenadas most popular anchorage and a hub of activity. Watch for the 5ft patch on your charts and a buoyed sunken wreck. Holding is usually very good although there are areas of weed and rubble. The bay is home to two good bars and restaurants. At the northern-most end you will “nd De Big Fish restaurant, Budget Marine, Spice Island Marine Boatyard and a sail loft. From here it is just a short walk to the main bus routes, shops and other amenities. On the eastern side you will “nd Prickly Bay Marina bar and restaurant with fuel dock and customs of“ce. Moorings are offered throughout the bay. No anchoring is allowed off the pretty Lance Aux Epines beach where you will “nd a dive shop amongst the discreet hotels.AUTHORS NOTE … The following bays are accessed through channels with reefs and shoals on either side. Caution must be exercised and care taken. Buoys are not always in place and sometimes charts are wrong.Mount HartmanMount Hartman is home to Secret Harbour Marina and fuel dock. The bar and restaurant ashore and the pretty grounds make this mostly protected bay attractive when you want something a little more serene than the hustle and bustle of other bays. Holding is good but the currents can have you swinging in odd directions, so allow plenty of room.


82 ALLATSEA.NET NOVEMBER 2013 Hog IslandHog Island is another popular anchorage. The protected bay, the pretty beach and Rogers rum shack have people gathering daily for parties, potlucks and endless games of Mexican train dominos. The island is full of trails and an adjoining bridge leads onto the mainland and Mount Hartman Dove Sanctuary. Holding is mostly good but this anchorage often gets busy during the summer months.Clarkes Court BayClarkes Court encompasses several different anchorages. Holding is excellent in depths that vary throughout the bay. Dinghy access is available inside the reefs all the way from Mount Hartman to Phare Bleu. Calivigny Island is a private, exclusive holiday resort but beaches are public. Anchor in the cut between the island and the mainland. The water is deep but the holding is good. Here you can enjoy a cool unhindered breeze and a fast current to keep away the growth. Saga Bay lies to your west and is actually part of Hog Island. Five or six boats can “t snuggly in this pretty anchorage. Further in and on the east side you can anchor in Petit Calivigny, a small indentation in the mainland with a shoal at its mouth, or anchor a little further on by Whisper Cove marina bar and restaurant. At the north end of the bay is the small village of Woburn with a couple of bars, small shops and bus access. Clarkes Court Bay Marina is in the northwestern corner of the bay. Many boats like to anchor this side of Hog Island, which offers good protection from a southerly swell. Phare Bleu BayNot many boats anchor in Phare Bleu Bay as it is very deep although an anchorage can be found by Adams Island on the Grenada This view of Hog Island from Clarks Court Bay shows both anchorages as well as Saga Bay, the small anchorage to the left of the photo A protected anchorage and a tropical beach make Hog Island your own little piece of paradise
