8 ALLATSEA.NET JUNE 2014 Editors Log There can be nothing worse than returning to your boat after a pleasant run ashore only to “nd it gone, yet this scenario is played out many times in anchorages around the world every year. Im not talking about theft, as its rare that someone will make off with a yacht, Im talking about boats breaking free of badly maintained moorings. When I “rst arrived in the Caribbean it was rare indeed to “nd a mooring and everyone relied on their own ground tackle. The thing about using your own ground tackle is you know exactly what you have in the water. With a mooring, no matter how sturdy it may appear on or near the surface, you have no idea what is down there tethering your pride and joy to the bottom. Over the last few years companies, and some individuals, have gone into the rented moorings business seeing it as an easy source of income. Sink a lump of concrete or an old engine block; add a piece of rope and a mooring buoy/plastic detergent bottle and sit back and watch the money roll in. Without diving on a mooring, its hard to know if it is well maintained or the mooring block is heavy enough to hold you in a good breeze, given the vessels windage and weight. You would expect commercially owned rental moorings to be maintained and serviced to high standards but in my experience that is not always the case. On several occasions, I have seen boats ashore or drifting out to sea with the remains of a mooring hanging from the bow. Its not a comforting thought. On page 40, All At Sea s Betsy Crowfoot takes us through the mooring mine“eld and offers advice from the experts. June and the megayachts have ”ed to their summer cruising grounds and the smaller cruising boats arent far behind them. When I dinghy across Sint Maartens Simpson Bay Lagoon, the now empty marina slips resemble gaping mouths with missing teeth. What is undoubtedly a loss to the northern Caribbean is a boon for the islands in the south, where many boats now spend hurricane season. The easing of restrictions on length-of-stay in Grenada and Curaao, and the push by government to bring cruisers back to Colombia is good news. How nice it would be if Venezuela could clean up its act and return to the days when it attracted yachts like a magnet. Having mentioned the H word, I admit that my wife and I are now faced with a conundrum. We have spent the last few months working on our boat and, as of writing; the mast Gary E. Brown, Editor and boat remain separated by over a mile. We hauled out last hurricane season but this year are thinking of leaving GString in the water. This goes against all my principles and what I learned the hard way about good seamanship. When sailors ask advice about hurricane season, I tell them, usually forcefully, to haul out or head south ƒ north ƒ anywhere, just dont stay here. I have been through hurricanes yet here I am not only considering keeping the boat in the water but actually going sailing! I have done the homework, listened to long-range weather forecasts/predictions and convinced myself that El Nio is my friend. Summer in the Caribbean is incredibly beautiful, the winds are gentle and life moves at a slower pace. I feel that old pirate Sir Francis Drake and his Channel calling me and I have never been to Anegada. This could be the perfect time to explore. Convincing my wife is another matter.

A review of the Central Development Bank (CDB) funded projects scheduled to be completed in September 2014 was presented by Anita Sutton on behalf of Craig Keller, Project Coordinator, who was off-island. Those in attendance were briefed on the successful completion of the Economic Impact Study recently completed by Andre Henry and a brief sneak peek was given into the Improved Cross-border Movement of Recreational Yachts Project. Anita Sutton pointed out that this project could begin within six weeks once the right candidate has been selected using the guidelines stipulated by the CDB. Nikoyan Roberts, the newly appointed Nautical Development Manager of the Grenada Tourism Authority was also in attendance and gave an outline of the new Tourism Authoritys structure and operation. She emphasised its commitment to yachting and outlined marketing plans for the sector for 2014. In a press release, MAYAG said it was truly refreshing to hear “rst-hand the governments continued interest in supporting the marine industry. During the meeting, President Anita Sutton indicated that after “ve busy years, it was time to step back from the Association. She thanked the industry, regional marine organisations, government bodies, NGOs and the other national private sector associations for their outstanding support over the last “ve years and indicated that she will continue to quietly support MAYAG, including ensuring the successful completion of the CDB project. Following elections, Nicholas George of Budget Marine was named MAYAG President.

The plans were presented by government at a public hearing in which major changes to the area are projected. According to the SMMTA, the plans address the physical heartland of the yachting industry, which in turn constitutes approximately 15% of the economy of Sint Maarten. In a press release, the SMMTA said they understand that this is a Zoning Plan and not a Development Plan, but feel strongly that the St. Maarten government needs to slow down the process to better understand and take into account the needs and concerns of the Simpson Bay community and all other stakeholders, including the marine industry, before moving forward.


18 ALLATSEA.NET JUNE 2014FIFOS, SISOS, & OTHER CRUISING WIVES BY CAPN FATTY GOODLANDERSailing Humor It is best not to allow cruising wives to meet other cruising wives. To put it another way: suffering at sea should be a solitary pursuit. A happy ship is one in which the crew isnt fully aware how miserable they are. I nurture this cherished, long-standing maritime tradition by (1) seldom going ashore, (2) seldom bringing my wife when I do, and (3) visiting only Laundromats full of land-lubbing deaf mutes. There are, alas, exceptions. I cant bear to pass up free food. Often, Im invited to sing for my supper. I do so, loudly. People think I wont be too obnoxious if Im eating. WRONG! I can eat and tell lies at the same time. We writers refer to this as multitasking. Its true,Ž says my wife Carolyn. Pre-computer, Fatty used to make one mistake at a time. Now, in the name of career ef“ciency, he makes dozens of mistakes at the same time. Yes, hes sooooo cyber-savvy, and my hero to the max!Ž Recently we were invited aboard a large cattlemaran (well, a cruising catamaran large enough to graze cattle on its forward ramp and still have room left over for one nanny, one maid, one chef, an engineer, and a deckhand) named, romantically, Tax Exemption The engineer was holding court as we came aboard, explaining the ships intricacies. We dont need to run the V-16 Southern Cross GenSet 24/7 but we do anyway„to offset all the carbon-credits which came free-of-charge with our jetski ”eet!Ž Here, here!Ž said a drunken, posh British voice„the intoxicated owner of the 468ft mega-yacht Chump Change I believe. Many of the poor folk living in the temperate zones have thin clothes, and so it is important for our global manufacturing industries to continue to heat up the planet ...Ž chimed in another„who was either a helicopter pilot or blimp steward off the sleek Italian vessel named Bigger Than Yours Carolyn confers with her fellow cruising wives about the latest acronyms

Whats the problem?Ž Ah, the spirit of Marie Antoinette lives on! The women onboard the catamaran all looked like Angelina Jolie: Young, thin, rich, and predatory. Alas, my wife fell under the spell of one evil cruising wife in attendance. I knew this TW (Trophy Wife) was evil the moment I laid eyes on her. She wasnt bruised. I could see no boat-bites. Her nails were not cracked, split, ripped, torn, and bitten to the quick. Her hair was (horrors!) combed. There were no dark circles under her eyes. Her nose looked odd: as if it had never been broken. She had teeth; a number of them. Worse, they were white, even, and had no large gaps. She wore contact lenses, not OpShop eyewear frames held together with duct tape. Leather shoes. Her wristwatch worked, and wasnt ”ooded with sea water. Her wedding ring was gold, and had a diamond so large it had its own in”atable PFD ... Im a Fifo wife,Ž she said to my life-partner arrogantly as she sat down next to us, and you look like a long term Siso.Ž Well,Ž my wife said timidly while running a shaky hand through her tangle of varnish-smeared hair, I guess!Ž Carolyn was obviously a bit taken aback, confused, and intimidated by the newcomers genuine plasticity. The Fifo shook her head in sad inspection. Well, at least youre not an SOB„Stuck On Board.Ž Poor Carolyn looked like she was drowning, so I stuck in my oar with, and what does Fifo stand for?Ž Boy, youre out of the loop, SkipŽ she said to me. Fly in, Fly out.Ž I hate being called Skip. I prefer skipper or captain ... or even Sir Sailor„not that I put on airs. Carolyn seemed cowed, and muttered something like, ... well, I ”ew on an airplane ƒ a jet ƒ in 1966, with my parents.Ž The Fifo wasnt impressed. She ignored me, and spoke directly to Carolyn as if I wasnt there. ... “ve million sperm cells in your average ejaculation„and your husbands won. How sad!Ž I could sense the struggle going on within Carolyn. Finally, her curiosity got the best of her. You called me a Siso ...Ž Yes,Ž said the lady-whose-holding-tank-does-not-stink, Thats an acronym for Sail in, Sail out. Thats what we Fifos call our fellow water-wives who have no self-respect.Ž ... no self ... what?Ž queried my wife, drowning in the swirl of all these new, too-trendy concepts. Boy, you are really not LEANING IN, are you?Ž said the Lady.


20 ALLATSEA.NET JUNE 2014the comfort of our gated communities ashore.Ž I could tell my wife, normally the most contented of cruising spouses, was interested. Her eyes were aglow, her cheeks ”ushed. Yes, she looked totally different„there was hope in her eyes!Ž Whats the “rst step in casting off my cruising chains,Ž she asked the Lady, her voice rising in strength and determination. Please! Were on our third circ !Ž Oh, you poor dear,Ž said the Lady, obviously moved. NSOP!Ž ... whaaa?Ž Carolyn asked. No Sex On Passage!Ž At this point, I felt it important to step in. After all, I am a captain. There are limits. Of course, I want to be extremely fair and completely non-sexist and totally PC and all„but too much truth can drown any women. I grabbed my wife, and pulled her outside. We went forward, and huddled by the electro-hydraulic roller furler. What she isnt telling you about is the BBs,Ž I said. When the RB FOs, the BB FIs!Ž Im lost again,Ž my wife wailed, cant you S.T.O.P. with the acronyms.Ž I was talking to her fat-cat husband,Ž I told my wife. And, well, she is going to be traded in soon ... for a newer, thinner model. TRs, trophy wives, have a very limited shelf life ...Ž What about the BBs?Ž she asked, wide eyed with what an evil world we inhabited. When the RB FOs, the BB FIs!Ž I said. That means, the Bilge Bunnies„young chicks who are eager to snag a rich guy in hopes hell croak off in the saddle„Fly In when the RBs ”y out! This is why wealthy people are so concerned about the On Time performance of an airline„so their aging, face-lifted wife isnt confronted with their young, natural D-cup mistress!Ž But what will happen to her?Ž asked my wife, ever the compassionate one. I shrugged my shoulders. Im not sure. Shell turn into a cougar, I guess, and attempt to pick up adolescent kite sailors. Or worse. In any event, her Glory Days are over„and our marital bliss is just beginning!Ž SD, SD,Ž she cried in happiness, Sugar Daddy!Ž EDITORS NOTE: Capn Fatty and Carolyn are currently hallucinating in the Torres Strait.

All men are boys„thats a given. My hubby, bless his little bald head, likes to be macho. So I allowed him to buy an oceangoing yacht that has a range of 12,000 miles„in exchange for a one million dollar debit card on Dockwise!Ž What?Ž my wife said, her eyes spinning. NSIS,Ž said the Lady. No Shame In Shipping!Ž My wife must have had wax in her ears„plus, shes a tad earthy. Of course theres no shame in sh*#ting,Ž she said, puzzled.  Shipping ,Ž I corrected. ... thats what the RB said, shipping !Ž ...

To cover up for her, I blurted, They say it makes sense economically to ship their larger-than-Pittsburgh mega-yachts„but I think the real reason is that they dont want their yachts to mingle with the likes of the 99 per centers.

Plimsoll gym shoes became an accidental offshoot; they were invented at about the same time as the passing of his amendment bill and the name was intended as an honor to the resolute politician. The shoe was made of canvas, with a rubber base line around the entire shoe from the sole and up the topside for about an inch. Its purpose was to keep the foot dry until the line had been breached; then your foot got wet. Appropriate, eh? As a boy Charlie remembers plimsolls, They were part of your kit for PT, but after an hour of running around your feet stank to high heaven.Ž Samuel Plimsolls heroic battle didnt stink at all. If it had stunk it probably wouldnt have “nally achieved success. Plimsoll resolved a stinking issue although some in parliament claimed that it was nothing more than a big stink. So there you have it … how to conjugate the verb stink. Personally I take my hat off to Samuel Plimsoll. His dedication to human rights was admirable. The US Congress could use someone like him … there are some real stinkers up there! The Plimsoll Sensation by Nicolette Jones (2006): Interesting and well regarded biography of Samuel Plimsoll. Julian Putley is the author of The Drinking Mans Guide to the BVI, Sunfun Calypso and Sunfun Gospel Sailing Humor A cof“n ship was the name given to a ship that was so poorly maintained that it had only a slim chance of making its destination. These ships were very prevalent in the latter 19th century when emigrants from Ireland and cargoes from Britain were exported in large numbers. Ships were grossly overloaded and ships sank while crews and passengers died in their thousands. A courageous member of the British parliament named Samuel Plimsoll tried for years to get legislation passed to improve safety and maintenance on ships, and to regulate the overloading of cargo encouraged by greedy owners to maximize pro“ts at the expense of safety. He was stymied at every turn because many ship owners were MPs themselves and loathed passing new laws that would be to their disadvantage; they were making fortunes in the shipping business. Ships were insured by Lloyds of London at way above their real value and it was often more lucrative to have a ship sink than not … and to hell with the loss of life. I suppose one could draw a parallel with todays political climate in the USA where large corporations are buying the politicians and an ever bigger gap in wealth is evident between the declining prosperity of the middle class and the increasing super rich. Its hard to envisage a solution because the foxes are in charge of the hen house. Eventually (in 1876) Plimsoll achieved partial success when a bill he had been advocating for years was amended into the Merchant Shipping Act. It ordered ship inspections to be carried out by the Board of Trade and mandated a SAILING WITH CHARLIE PLIMSOLLS AND COFFIN SHIPSBY JULIAN PUTLEY GRAPHICS BY HANNAH WELCH

Can“eld joins legendary sailors like Dennis Conner, Ted Turner, Dean Barker, and Rod Davis who have captured the title over the past 50 years: many using the Congressional Cup as a launchpad for the Americas Cup. And USVIs own Peter Holmberg is a four-time winner of the Congressional Cup, sailing under the St. Thomas YC burgee in 1998, 1999 and 2001; and in 2002 … representing the Golden Gate YC.

32 ALLATSEA.NET JUNE 2014 Cruising SAN SALVADORE, BAHAMAS AN ISLAND GEM IN THE ATLANTIC OCEANBY TONY MIRO In May 2011, my crew and I sailed my Hunter 376 Nada Mas! out of Ponce, Puerto Rico bound for St. Petersburg, Florida as part of my relocation trip to start a new job in Tampa. As with every long voyage you start with a plan, but you must be ”exible and allow changes due to bad weather and other unforeseen issues. After two rough and rainy nights crossing the Mona Passage from Puerto Rico to the Dominican Republic we took a break at the Ocean World Marina in Puerto Plata, where we “xed a broken main halyard, refueled, rested and enjoyed the local hospitality as well as ice cold Presidente beer and “ne Dominican rum. Our plans were to continue the next day and sail the 150 plus nautical miles to Turtle Cove Marina in Providenciales, Turks & Caicos, where we could clear customs, relax and enjoy some beautiful beaches. Luckily for us, due to good weather, we changed our plans and it was a true blessing! The weather was so good that we decided to skip the Turks & Caicos and continue straight to The Bahamas. Our challenge then was to “guring out which of The Bahamas ports of entry was the most convenient along our route to the Florida Keys. After looking at our options we decided to go to Cockburn Town, San Salvador. We chose San Salvador because we read that it was where Christopher Columbus landed on his “rst expedition to the New World. It is said that his “rst landfall was Long Bay on October 12 1492. Originally known as Guanahani, Columbus named the island San Salvador after Christ the Savior. There is a beautiful stone cross on the spot he supposedly landed and this is the most photographed site on the island. San Salvador is located off the beaten path about 360 miles southeast of Miami, and it is a must stop for cruising sailors.

The island is around 12-miles long and “ve-miles wide with only four hotels, including a Club Med, and one marina. The Riding Rock Resort and Marina is where we tied up for a few hours while we cleared customs and explored the island. The airport is walking distance from the marina or you can catch a ride from a friendly local to clear Customs and Immigration. When cruising to the Bahamas remember that all boats entering The Bahamas are required to pay an entry fee that varies by boat length and number of people in the crew. Boats up to 35ft long are charged a $150(USD) entry fee. The fee doubles to $300 for boats over 35ft. The fees cover the Cruising Permit, Fishing Permit and the Departure Tax for up to three people. Each additional person above three will be charged a $20 departure tax. This fee is good for a second re-entry within a 90-day period. If you plan to stay longer than 12 months, special arrangements must be made in advance. When in San Salvador make sure to stop and eat at the Paradis Restaurant, located at the Plaza Mall, where Cruising you can sample the local cuisine, including but not limited to: cracked conch, fresh “sh, peas and rice, coleslaw, and baked macaroni and cheese with an ice cold Kalik beer served by their very friendly staff. Another must see in San Salvador is the Dixon Hill Lighthouse, one of the last kerosene lighthouses still in operation. Built in 1887, it is located on the northeast side of the island, and has a 19-mile range. If your cruising adventures take you through the Bahamas then I strongly recommend a visit to San Salvador. Our time there was short and we wish we could have stayed for a few days and enjoyed its slow pace a little longer. After buying ice, water and diesel our next stop on the way to Florida was the island of Eleuthera ƒ but thats another story.

BAREUTHER FA LA ME TOP BOAT, INGRAM TOP ANGLER The reel March Madness didnt take place on the basketball court but in the cockpits of the 16 boats competing in the inaugural all-release Casa de Campo International Blue Marlin Classic. Hosted out of the Dominican Republic from March 20 to 23, the ”eet released a whopping 73 blue marlin or an incredible 4.56 blues per boat in the two days of “shing. Frank Rodriguez and his Florida-based team aboard the 70ft Viking Fa La Me released an even dozen blues to take the Top Boat prize We caught two “sh pretty quick on the “rst day, which was a nice surprise, then no bites for a while after that,Ž explains Fa La Me s Capt. Rob Moore. Everybody scattered out to other FADs (“sh attracting or aggregating devices) but we stayed put and hoped for an afternoon rally.Ž The plan worked and the Fa La Me s anglers released a double-header of blues in the early afternoon. Then, Moore moved offshore to where a couple of other tournament boats reported bites. Bingo! The team released one out of their second double-header of the day. The Reel Passion team was “ghting its sixth “sh when we got another bite,Ž Moore says. We knew we had to catch it before them to win the daily prize. Frank put lots of heat on it and we released our sixth “sh before them.

They decided to stick it out. About 11am, we released a blue and it felt good,Ž Moore explains. But in Casa de Campo you can catch a triple just as easy as a single so we knew we would not win with catching just one. Next, we released another single then two doubles. The next boat behind us, Reel Passion caught eight so we had a great lead and everybody was pretty relaxed the last couple of hours of “shing. But we all know “shing is “shing, so we kept making our laps on the FADs, kept hoping for another bite, kept wishing the clock would speed up and the day to be over. It turned out to be a pretty awesome day of “shing to add another six to our six releases the day before. To do it in a tournament was even sweeter.Ž Meanwhile, it was North Carolinas Bill Ingram aboard his 61ft Billy Holton, Reel Passion who landed the Top Angler prize. The day before the tournament started we saw eight or nine blue marlin, but couldnt keep any on the line long enough to make the release, so our hopes werent high,Ž Ingram explains. The “rst day of the tournament we headed to a different spot from where we were previously. We like to “nd our own “sh away from the ”eet and it worked. We caught six total and I released “ve. The next day we werent so lucky. We released two to give us eight total and second place overall. I released one of them to make six and earn Top Angler.Ž Theres no question that the Casa de Campo International Blue Marlin Classic, the “rst international sports “shing tournament hosted out of Marina Casa de Campo, was a huge success. When you combine a superb elegant setting like Marina Casa de Campo with unparalleled blue marlin “shing you have the ingredients for a very successful tournament,Ž explains tournament director Rick Alvarez, of Florida-based International Bill“sh Tournaments, Inc. Plus, when you compare the catch ratio to other famous blue marlin destinations where the winning boat traditionally wins with eight blues through the course of four days of “shing, to 12 blues in only two days, youre talking about out of this world blue marlin “shing.Ž The Casa de Campo International Blue Marlin Classic bene“ts Hogar del Nio, a foundation dedicated to providing opportunities for underprivileged children and teenagers in the Dominican Republic.

With at least two local restaurant owners among the participants for Island Water Worlds “rst annual Mahi Mahi Tournament in St. Maarten on April 13, there was good reason to be feeling hungry. Defying the rough weather and sea conditions that marked the mornings “shing, veteran angler Captain Lee Halley and crew on Small Change snatched the “rst and second place prizes at the inaugural tournament organised by the St. Maarten Sport Fishing Foundation at Bobbys Marina. The crew reeled in the largest Mahi Mahi of 30.5lb for the “rst prize and followed up with the second largest Mahi Mahi of 25.5lb for the second prize. Third prize of Most Weight Overall went to Sea Fever a boat registered in Saba captained by Roy Heyliger with 218.5lb of “sh. Peter Bonev, with the smallest boat in the tournament, landed the largest Tuna at 54.8lb for the fourth prize, caught between Dog Island and Tuna Shoals. Sea Fever also collected a prize for the Largest Wahoo of 52.7lb. Winning boats won a combination of cash, gift certi“cates, and goody bags for the prizes. Fishermen reported rough weather conditions in the morning with swells of four to six feet but conditions eased in the afternoon. It was overcast, very wet, squally and rough, up until 1:00pm,Ž reported Lee Halley. Not a nice feeling and we even thought about coming back at one point but continued.Ž Halley commended Island Water World for getting the anglers together considering there are only a few tournaments a year and long gaps in between tournaments.

40 ALLATSEA.NET JUNE 2014 One of the pleasures of cruising in the Caribbean is the multitude of moorings in settings that can only be described as paradise. But if that mooring buoy fails; your dream destination can turn into a nightmare. Various municipalities, parks and conservation services, and private parties have installed mooring buoys, in order to generate income, encourage tourism, and protect reefs from the damage anchoring can cause. And while you can somewhat rest assured a paid-for mooring is maintained, there is no guarantee. Prudent cruisers should be prepared to check your can … particularly overnighters.The BasicsAs a general rule of thumb, 18-inch white buoys (sometimes with stripes) are suitable for mooring boats up to 50 feet in length. Depending on where you are, these may be stenciled for day use only. Orange buoys are for snorkeling and day use, yellow for commercial boats. Mooring systems consist of this ”oating buoy and a means to permanently attach it to the ocean ”oor: typically a “xture which is screwed or driven into the sea bed, but sometimes merely a heavy weight … like an oil drum “lled with concrete, or an old engine block! Between this “xture and the buoy, you might “nd an assortment of loops and lines, swivels and shackles. Your mooring is only as strong as the weakest link,Ž says Ben Bourdeux of Moor-Seacure Ltd., the leading mooring company in the BVI. Their scheduled inspections, every 90days, start at the buoy. From there, they scrutinize every ring, swivel, shackle, and even the lockwire on the shackle.Ž Its interesting to note that growth on the actual mooring line isnt bad, as the vegetation can block harmful UV rays and decelerate decay. But careful survey of the line is critiSeamanship & VoyagingCHECK YOUR CANBY BETSY CROWFOOTITS WHAT YOU CANT SEE THAT COUNTS PHOTO: OCEANMEDIA


JUNE 2014 ALLATSEA.NET 41cal, as it is a likely site of damage, considering boats often run right over them, or wrap them around their propellers (and cut themselves free). Jim Viega of SailCaribe adds, Ive never heard of a mooring pulling out of the bottom, but have seen the tethers or pennants break between the top of the ball and the boat. If the pennant is in bad shape, you can run a line through the thicker line that anchors the mooring to the bottom … the line the mooring pennant is actually attached to.Ž On a recent charter in Culebra and Vieques, I found myself repeatedly in the balmy water, eyeballing the moorings: looking for markings and ”aws; and enjoying a lot of extra swim time. I checked every juncture point, the integrity of the line, and looked for signs of chafe in the section of chain that rubs and bounces along the sea bed. Everything looked a-okay, the weather was fair and we slept with ease each night. Should I stay or should I go?In the event conditions are forecast to run amok, Viega suggests cruisers should give serious thought as to whether to stay put or not. Moorings are placed in the safest harbors, so its possible anchoring outside could present a greater risk. If you can double up on your mooring lines, youll most likely be okay.

42 ALLATSEA.NET JUNE 2014 Youth Sailing A trip to summer camp takes on a whole new tack when its in the Caribbean. Each summer, several adventure operators host boat-based programs for young people on islands spanning from Tortola to the Tobago Cays and beyond. Jason Buchheim, founding program director of Tarpon Springs, Florida-based Odyssey Expeditions, which operates camps in the British Virgin Islands (BVI), gives a glimpse of what a camp like this is all about. Students get hands-on, fully interactive, real world experience scuba diving, sailing, hiking, and exploring adventure, while getting to live and work together amongst their peers in a supportive atmosphere.Ž Theres more to these camps than just the physical activity and watersports side. For example, Mike Meighan, director of the Sarasota, Florida-headquartered Global Expeditions Group, which runs ActionQuest in the BVI and Leeward Islands, says, Self-esteem and personal growth occurs naturally in such an uncontrived environment. We take it a step further, adding speci“c times within the curriculum to challenge students to think outside of their box about concepts such as responsibility, integrity, goals and aspirations and the tools that they might need to take them from where they are as kids to where they want to be as adults. The experience can be profound.Ž SCHOOLS OUTSUMMER SAILING CAMPS IN THE CARIBBEANCAROL M. BAREUTHERHow can parents tell at what age their child is ready for this kind of camp? Middle school is the perfect time for students to begin exploring the world, answers Ladye Jane Vickers, marketing coordinator at Raleigh, NC-based Broadreach, Inc., which runs camps that operate through the Windward and Leeward Islands. Its the next step beyond summer camp, and gives students the chance to begin developing more independence, global awareness and leadership skills at a formative time in their lives.Ž Maturity and personal interests are the most important factors when choosing a camp, adds Mike Liese, founder and director of Northport, New York-headquartered, Sail Caribbean, which celebrates 30 years offering camps in the BVI. We accept students from 11 to 22-years-old and have designed some adventures for speci“c age groups and areas of focus. Examples are our cultural exchange Tango trip for 11 to 13-year-olds, where campers work with other kids from Tortolas Youth Empowerment Project on environmental initiatives, and our Echo leadership program for college students, where participants plan and navigate their own voyages aboard a 50ft monohull sailboat learning skills such as coastal and offshore navigation, passage-making, anchoring/docking, boat systems, and safety at sea in the process.Ž Sunset fun with Broadreach

44 ALLATSEA.NET JUNE 2014 Youth Sailing How can parents best prepare their kids for camp? Sail Caribbeans Liese answers, Its important that campers like being in and on the water and that they know how to swim.Ž Since teen campers are part of the crew in training and take part in all aspects of running the vessel including helmsman, anchoring, raising the sails and cooking/cleaning, says Odysseys Buchheim, they grow up in many ways on a voyage but it doesnt hurt if campers have done some chores in life beforehand.Ž Finally, adds Broadreachs Vickers, Encourage your child to be open to new experiences and to try things that may be out of their comfort zones. Theyll grow, learn, make memories and have the best time of their life in the process! Costs of camps such as this range from around $3,000 for 14-days to over $5,000 per camper for 21-days. Carol M. Bareuther, RD, is a St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands based marine writer and registered dietitian. A pool of marine-related talent combined with the slow months of summers off-tourist season offer an opportunity for Caribbean residents to work for adventure operators offering marine-based summer camps for kids. For example, Odyssey Expeditions work with some of the Moorings charter captains to staff its vessels, says Buchheim. Quali“ed BVI residents with PADI SCUBA instructor quali“cations are welcome to work as on-board counselor/instructor. We have sponsored multiple local students to earn professional credentials and work with us.Ž This is de“nitely a coveted job considering operators like ActionQuest receive about 100 staff applications each year. Our staff need to hold the appropriate professional licensure such as being a commercially endorsed captain (USCG or MCA) a professional PADI scuba instructor and/or an Emergency Medical Technician,Ž says Meighan. Sail Caribbeans Liese adds, We are always looking for US Sailing or ASA Basic Keelboat Instructors and persons with Marine Biology backgrounds.Ž Beyond this, says Broadreachs Vickers, Its important that our instructors have a deep understanding of group dynamics and teamwork, a “rm grasp of safety procedures and a passion for what they do thats contagious.ŽEMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITIES AT CARIBBEAN SUMMER CAMPS Youngsters at Sail Caribbean learn the ropes Blowing bubbles with Odyssey Expeditions

The next day, we improved our starts, had a faster boat on the upwind legs and maintained longer tacks. The last race was especially stressful.

Over the past 19-years, the Bucket has evolved to a major regatta for large sailboats and safety out on the water is a big concern.

No major accidents, other than a few torn spinnakers and a broken halyard, were reported. One of our goals, based on feedback from participating owners, is to provide like racing„that is to have yachts which perform in a similar fashion, in a variety of different conditions, race together. That is dif“cult to do in some instances given how disparate many of the superyachts are, but it is an important consideration,Ž says race director Peter Craig. There are a number of factors we take into account in our effort to make this happen„even if it means expanding the rating bands. A boats Sail Area/ Displacement Ratio (both the upwind & downwind numbers) and Displacement/Length Ratio (DLR) are three key factors that come into play.Ž Safety on the water, great parties on shore, a mix of fun and sportsmanship: all of this is part of the drama and excitement of The Saint Barth Bucket, one of the most unusual…and spectacular„regattas in the Caribbean.

60 ALLATSEA.NET JUNE 2014 Antigua ANTIGUA CLASSIC YACHT REGATTA 2014 LIFE AND SOUL The Antigua Classic Yacht Regatta, sponsored by Panerai was blessed with superb sailing conditions. The spectacle of magni“cent traditional yachts, barrelling through Caribbean surf, was a truly amazing sight. For “ve days, the trade winds played ball … 20 plus knots producing white horses on the beautiful sailing grounds on the south coast of Antigua. This lucky scribbler took a ride on a different yacht every day. The mighty J/Class, Rainbow was my “rst ride. The original Rainbow was launched in 1934 for the famous Harold Vanderbilt but was scrapped for the war effort. The present day Rainbow was designed by Dykstra Naval Architects, and built at Holland Jachtbouws yard in Friesland, the Netherlands. The latest version has a luxurious mahogany interior, the mast is carbon and the yacht bristles with the latest custom deck systems. The power of Rainbow blows you away. Without deploying the kite, we only got to a top speed of about 14 knots but the momentum of the powerful bulb keel as it cuts through the Caribbean swell is aweBY LOUAY HABIB ONNE VAN DER WAL/PANERAIOverall winner Whitehawk tacks inshore some. The wake is a white vortex that stretches back as far as you can see. Rainbow was meticulously built, the standard of workmanship precise and exquisite. Since I was a child I have dreamed about sailing on a J/Class and the experience was truly memorable. One of the only large Fifes of her ilk in North America, the 83ft Adventuress beckoned on the second day and her skipper, Seth Salzmann, has a heavy burden. Kenny Coombs, the previous skipper and the Father of Classics passed away last October. Adventuress  owner Victor Janovich has a crew of young, keen inexperienced sailors. Many of them come from the middle of Canada. Skipper Seth has been sailing all his life and has the eyes of a hawk, watching the crew to make sure they get it right. He uses old fashioned commands from days gone by. Thats the way I was taught … old school,Ž explained Seth.  Adventuress will be going up to Maine after the regatta and then across the Atlantic to Scotland.

62 ALLATSEA.NET JUNE 2014 Antigua sharpens up the skills and gives the crew a lot of experience; the North Atlantic can be a bit wild, so the regatta is an important part of their learning curve.Ž On Sunday, Adventuress took part in The Cannon Race, and along with many other yachts, ”owers were put into the water as a mark of respect for Kenny Coombs. Built in 1902, Coral of Cowes was the oldest yacht racing at the Antigua Classic Yacht Regatta. Skipper and owner Richard Oswald, who lives on board the yacht, charters Coral to paying guests. I stepped aboard and was delighted to trim the main sheet on the Fred Sheppard designed gaff rigged schooner. With an overall length of 108ft and a displacement of close to 70 tons, Coral of Cowes is a mammoth yacht. The hull is built of teak planks, bronze-fastened, over “ve-inch English oak frames; 26-tons of lead make up her keel. Coral is a real handful in a big breeze. Richard is a very big man and he needed that strength to wrestle with the wheel as we smashed to windward. The Cannon Course is great for watching the ”eet and we reached past boat after stunning boat, but that also made it pretty tough on the main sheet. Coral was ducking or going high to avoid the traf“c and the main needed constant adjustment. I dont mind admitting to running out of energy at times! It was a real pleasure to sail into Nelsons Dockyard for The Parade of Sail. Coral of Cowes is over 100-years-old and we were roundly applauded by the spectators. For the last race on the Windward course, I joined the Carriacou Sloop, Exodus The sloops all moor up together outside Skullduggerys Bar and there is a party atmosphere in the mornings. A splash of Jack Iron rum on the tiller and we were off. Rob Fabre is the skipper and in his late 20s. He is a serious wooden boat junky. Exodus had been put back together after hitting a reef last year and it is a serious science project for Rob. The hull has been faired, the rig tweaked and a removable wooden bowsprit ”ies the spinnaker. We got off to a cracking start, reaching out to a deep water mark, hiking hard. Exodus is a witch off the breeze but upwind the other sloops were quicker and caught up as we played the current inshore. On the long beat to Shirley Heights the sea really kicked up as we neared the top mark and we were behind. Antiguan tactician and Laser Olympian Karl James called for the spinnaker and spinnaker staysail and we took off barely under control. A Carriacou Sloop does not have the elegant lines of the classics but wow what a ride. Several classes were decided on the last day of racing. Overall victory as well as “rst place in the Classic Class went to the American clipper-bowed 105ft classic ketch Whitehawk which received an Of“cine Panerai watch. Other overall prizes went to Lily Maid (Vintage), Nazgull of Fordell (Spirit of Tradition), Genesis (Best Elapsed Time) and Desiderata (Classic GRP).

JUNE 2014 ALLATSEA.NET 65 Grenada YAKIN IN PARADISE Paddling off across an azure sea, trade winds tempering the soaring heat, lush green vegetation overhanging from the land and stunning vistas in every direction, youve arrived in kayaking paradise. Grenada is a wonderfully vibrant, colourful and diverse Caribbean island thats been hovering under the watersports radar for a while. With miles of coastline and very few other paddlers around, kayaking is perfect for exploring and enjoying this fantastic part of the world.Got waves? When a big northerly swell pulses, Grenada is there to greet it. The oceans energy pushes walls of liquid along both coasts and if you hunt around youll no doubt score. A plethora of reef, point and beach breaks can be found on either ”ank … with time and effort, who knows what youll discover. For those who fancy a bit of wave sliding then fear not if the Caribbean Sea side is ”at … the Atlantic side will most likely have a wall if the trades are puf“ng. Kayak touring. For exploring and touring, Grenada offers the perfect location. Conservation Kayak is located at Whisper Cover Marina, Woburn Bay, and offers guided tours. As well as chaperoning all levels of sit-on kayaker, BY TEZ PLAVENIEKS PHOTOGRAPHY BY FI PLAVENIEKS Jamie and Amber Barrett take time to educate and inform about the various conservation issues facing the island. In particular their knowledge of mangroves, marine and wildlife ensure you have an active but interesting time. To raise even more awareness Jamie and (local) Hazel Da Breo are planning to circumnavigate Grenada … stay tuned for further details.Hog Island. I joined Conservation Kayak for their Hog Island tour … an uninhabited jut of rock that lies offshore from Whisper Cove. It provides the perfect point of interest and is the kind of geological formation that paddlers are naturally drawn to. Heading along the sheltered northern part of Woburn Bay you eventually end in the wide open blue. You then hang a right and head downwind with the breeze and swell. Navigating through a small keyhole in the reef, you reach the designated lunch stop on the backside of Hog Island. After resting tired muscles a while, its time to move onwards along the islands southern tip before a smash upwind rounds-off the day. Further a“eld. For anyone looking to further explore, Grenada serves up a whole host of paddling opportunities

Rolling swell, gusty breeze and being out in the open ocean is enough to get those juices ”owing. Sort out your logistics BEFORE and all will be “ne.Gear carriage. Although out“ts, such as Conservation Kayak, are now springing up theres a distinct lack of similar operations. Many hotels on the island provide kayaks but unfortunately there arent any rental shops. Staying at a hotel with equipment is the only real way to lay hands on gear if you dont take your own. It is possible to transport personal kayak gear but the airline will need to be chosen carefully as many dont accept oversize baggage. We ”ew with British Airways, who were great, but you couldnt book kayak equipment in as baggage as restrictions dont allow. (We actually took stand up paddle boards with us but these were in”atable and therefore easy to stow in the hold.)Untouched. Grenada is still largely untouched when it comes to watersports. The options for windsur“ng, surfing, kitesur“ng, SUP and kayaking are glaringly obvious. Although transporting kit is tricky, its worth investigating as the experience is fantastic. Special thanks to British Airways, Grenada Tourism Authority, Flamboyant Hotel and Kalinago Beach Resort … this trip wouldnt have been possible without their support.

JUNE 2014 ALLATSEA.NET 69 Curaao The 2014 Windsur“ng Curaao Slalom Series took place in April, for the second time this year. The Series is a sequence of several competitions, held throughout the year, designed to increase the level of local windsur“ng talent in preparation for regional and international windsur“ng events. Organized by the surf school Windsur“ng Curaao, with the help of enthusiastic volunteers and parents, 2014 Windsur“ng Curaao Slalom Series II served as training for the upcoming Curacao Challenge 2014, where local talent will compete against an international lineup. Competitors were divided into various categories and the event ran a total of 20 races in Spanish Water, a large area of sheltered water six-miles southeast of Willemstad. Thirty-nine enthusiastic windsurfers of all levels and ages took part, demonstrating their skills in adrenaline-pumping competition with winds ranging from 17 to 22 knots. The windsurfers, however, didnt have all the fun as a Stand Up Paddleboarding competition took place at the same time. This popular new sport gave spectators plenty to watch and helped keep them entertained. Following the event, organizers thanked Windsur“ng Curaao, the volunteers, participants and families for making the Curaao Slalom Series a great success.

70 ALLATSEA.NET JUNE 2014 Colombia Until not too long ago, the Colombian coast was avoided by cruisers because of its bad reputation. The country was a dangerous place for locals as well as for visitors, whether they arrived by land, air or sea. This has changed tremendously over the last decade. Colombian ports are growing in popularity, while the no-go zone these days is located in neighboring Venezuela. The voyage from the ABC islands to Panama used to be a long, hard sail but the accessibility of safe harbors along the Colombian coast now offers rest and refuge to break up the journey west. Cabo de la Vela, a 120 mile overnighter from Aruba, presents a big, ”at bay to spend the night. The scenery is attractive and one can anchor far from shore to avoid bugs and commotion from the small settlement. The clock is set back an hour and when the workday is “nished, curious “shermen and families pass by in small boats to gaze at the sailboats and their crew. Remember to smile for the camera! SANTA MARTA: A PLEASANT COLOMBIAN SURPRISE STORY BY LIESBET COLLAERT Cartagena … the old and famous beauty of Colombia … has always been a favorite port of call while on the way west. The town of Santa Marta, however, was the biggest surprise to my husband Mark and me. Anchoring in the commercial harbor is possible, but most cruisers prefer a stay in the modern and safe Santa Marta Marina. The facilities are clean and comfortable with stateof-the-art air-conditioned bathrooms and a functioning laundry room, both with an abundance of hot water. The staff is friendly, the manager and receptionist speak English, the marina fees are affordable and the interesting town center lies within walking distance. Western-style grocery stores, colorful local food stands and markets, bars, and restaurants abound. A week spent enjoying the good life ”ies by too quickly. Santa Marta has an ugly beach that over”ows with people during weekends and holidays. For a beach vacation, youre better off in one of the neighboring coastal towns.

A refreshing dip in the ocean can be had in La Piscina and Cabo San Juan and it is possible to spend the night in one of the campgrounds. During the rainy season, the trails can be very muddy. More and more cruisers prefer to visit the amazing city of Cartagena by bus from Santa Marta to avoid the unattractive anchorage and the extra agent fees in Cartagena harbor. Whether youre looking to take a break for a few days, a South American culture in which to immerse yourself, or a comfortable base to explore the sights and sounds of Colombia, the vibrant town of Santa Marta provides it all. Liesbet Collaert is a freelance writer. She and her husband Mark have been cruising on Irie for almost six years. They recently left the Caribbean and are heading west for new adventures in the South Paci“c. Visit her blog at: nial town, popular with Colombian visitors. A stroll along the boardwalk, while taking in the busy beach scene, the Indian statues and the many carts selling lime juice, skewered meat and other local food pleases the senses. The historic town center reveals picturesque buildings, peaceful squares and vendors selling everything from small cups of coffee to frozen shrimp. When darkness falls, the area really comes alive. Bars and restaurants “ll up and the boardwalk and plazas turn into a buzzing scene of locals having fun. Teenagers, couples in love and families with children promenade, and the Latin American culture and atmosphere are ever-present. During the Christmas period decorated statues, lit up at night, cause merriment all around. Buses enter and leave Santa Marta at different locations and taxis are an easy and affordable means of transportation. A ride to anywhere in the city costs the equivalent of US$2 for up to four passengers. A great day out is to be had at the Tayrona National Park, an hour east of Santa Marta by bus.
