8 ALLATSEA.NET JULY 2014 Editors Log The government of the British Virgin Islands have placed themselves at the forefront of Caribbean conservation by establishing a permanent shark sanctuary in its waters and banning the sale and trade of sharks and shark products within the territory. This is a brave decision and one that All At Sea hopes will set a precedent. Feared, hunted and abused, these magni“cent predators play a major role in the marine ecosystem and the decision by the BVI to protect them focuses world attention on the Caribbean for all the right reasons. Now, all we need is a progressive regional government to ban onetime use plastic bags in supermarkets. As more sailors and tourists seek ecofriendly destinations, heres a golden opportunity for a Caribbean destination to lead the way. The “rst island to ban single-use plastic bags will see their tourist industry prosper, world media attention will see to that. Regatta season is behind us and what a time we had. With each passing year, well-organized Caribbean regattas attract more top race boats, crewed by some of the best sailors in the world. You notice I used the words well-organized. Why? Because some regattas are now blowing in the wind, sitting back on past glories and hoping that by simply existing, people will come. In this competitive world, where regattas are a product, a brand, this laissez-faire attitude no longer works and I fear that some quite unique regattas, that had great potential, are heading for oblivion. I have seen the light, literally. Before rewiring the mast on G-String I did my homework and decided to replace the old incandescent tricolor at the masthead with an LED. The cost was more than a traditional tricolor but the bene“ts in the form of power consumption won me over. We rewired the mast when it was out of the boat but instead of using 16 gauge wire recommended for the masthead light, I took my usual belt-and-braces approach and upped the wire size to 14 gauge to avoid dreaded voltage loss on such a long run. With the mast re-stepped, I waited until dusk to test the lights. Rewiring anything always makes me jittery, having had my share of ”ash-bangs in the past. Troubleshooting faulty lights at deck level is one thing, doing the same at the top of a 40ft mast is quite another. Having put off the dreaded moment for as long as possible, and with “ngers crossed and “re extinguisher at the ready, I hit the switch marked deck-light and was rewarded by a Gary E. Brown, Editor two amp register on the ammeter and a lovely glow around the deck. The steaming light offered the same happy results. This was going splendidly! Masthead next, and ƒ nothing, or was there? Did the ammeter give a feeble kick or was that just wishful thinking? I went outside and looked up but the puck-like device wasnt visible from the cockpit. Down below, I ”icked the switch several times and each time noticed a tiny kick, one too weak to register on the boats old analog gauge. The only way to see if the lights were actually working was to view them from the dinghy, so off I went. Dragging out the moment, I “nally looked up and there they were, three incredibly bright stars shining red, green and white at the masthead. Theres more to this story than that of successful DIY. My reluctance to use the recommended wire meant we struggled to pull the heavier stuff through the mast, added more weight aloft and increased the cost of the installation. I like to think this exercise taught me a lesson and perhaps helped temper my bullish belt-and-braces attitude towards maintaining the boat, although my wife says she doubts it. On the plus side, and this is huge, we can now sail all night with navigation lights switched on and do so without running the batteries ”at. It sounds such a simple thing until you have to deal with a loss of power at sea, then an amp saved is everything. LET THERE BE LIGHTSee you on the water!

16 ALLATSEA.NET JULY 2014 News CARIBBEAN NEWS A BRIEF LOOK INTO THE HAPPENINGS OF OUR WORLD Antigua Race Week sailors lost at seaNews of the loss of four British yachtsmen returning from Antigua Race Week to the UK has shaken the Caribbean sailing community. Lost from the yacht Cheeki Ra“ki are Paul Goslin, 56; Steve Warren, 52; skipper Andrew Bridge, 22; and 22-year-old James Male. The yacht activated two 406MHz personal locator beacons 1,000 miles east of Cape Cod, Massachusetts, on Friday May 16th. This resulted in a search by aircraft of the US Coast Guard. At approximately midday on Saturday May 17th, the crew from the 1,000-foot motor vessel Maersk Kure located an overturned hull that matched the description of the Cheeki Ra“ki but found no sign of the sailors. Following reports from the ship it was thought the missing men could be adrift in the 12man liferaft the Beneteau First 40.7 was known to be carrying. After searching more than 4,000-square-miles of ocean, over a period of 53 hours, the US Coast Guard suspended their active search at 5:00am, Sunday May 18th. Following a huge social media campaign … with the hashtag #FindOurSailors … and online petitions with more than 200,000 signatures, and a request from the UK Government, the Coast Guard announced they were resuming the search on Tuesday May 20th. The search was carried out by aircraft of the US Coast Guard, the Rescue Wing U.S. Air National Guard, the Canadian Coast Guard, and the RAF. After a Navy warship relocated the overturned sailing vessel on Friday May 23rd, search planners con“rmed the boats life raft was secured in its storage space in the aft portion of the boat, indicating the crew had been unable to deploy it. Following this discovery, Coast Guard suspended its search later that day. British Virgin Islands establish permanent shark sanctuaryThe designation by the cabinet of the British overseas territory prohibits commercial “shing of all shark and ray species throughout the full exclusive economic zone. That area amounts to 80,117 square kilometers (30,933 square miles). The designation also bans the sale and trade of sharks and shark products within the territory. Many threatened or near-threatened shark species, swim in the waters off the British Virgin Islands. By committing to these comprehensive and permanent conservation measures, the territory has established itself as a global leader in protecting the predators that are vital to the health of our oceans. HONORS FOR CARIBBEAN SAILOR NIKKI BARNESNikki Barnes of St. Thomas, USVI, has been named Outstanding Female Freshman Athlete of the Year at the U.S. Coast Guard Academy. Sailing as skipper, Barnes helped to earn the CGA its “rst berths into both the Co-Ed and Womens Intercollegiate National Championships in nearly 30 years. Nikkis parents are All At Sea senior writer Carol Bareuther and photographer Dean Barnes.

18 ALLATSEA.NET JULY 2014 ON CYCLONES, SHEEP HERDERS, AND WORSE BY CAPN FATTY GOODLANDERSailing Humor I m a bit hurricane shy, as be“ts a sailor who has twice swum away from vessels in 100+ knots of circular breeze. Call me a storm-coward„I am cool with that. Just the phrase tropical hurricane makes me pee my pants. The phrase storm warning weakens my sphincter. Evidently, the Kiwis know this. Thus, they lured me down to New Zealand on circumnavigation #3 to be out of the hurricane belt for the South Paci“c summer. Alas, I didnt read the “ne print. They said out of the belt not hurricane-free. Damn! Even the Kiwis are spin-masters now. Even worse, they attempted to confuse me with this cyclone crap, “guring Id enjoy hurricanes far more with a safer-sounding label. But they really tricked me this particular time with a sub-tropical low approaching„and I thought the sub meant that it was barely worth mentioning. Silly me! Part of the problem was that I was hauled out at Dockland 5 in Whangarei, and starting to worry Id be sucked into that shipyard social whirl forever. The guy who owns it, Charlie, is a “ne, “ne bloke, and loves boaters. I know, I know, this is strictly forbidden by Federal Law in the mainland United States, where all shipyard owners have to take a hate pledge against their marine customers„but such things slip through the cracks in Kiwiville. So Charlie loves his customers, and his customers love Charlie. He never bothers you while youre working on your boat. However, if you ask him for help, he actually provides it. Again, amazing. Right? ... theres always a few surprises on the bill„you never know what hell leave off. Forgetaboutit,Žhe told Mike Litzow of Galactic about shifting his vessel to, and from, the sand-blasting area. The end result is shipyard utopia, a hippy-boat-yardcommune where all the staff, customers, and everyone else for that matter ... feel welcomed, appreciated, and loved. Did I mention it was cheap, clean, and spacious? That Charlie of Dockland 5, a true friend to the cruising yachtsmen of NZ


JULY 2014 ALLATSEA.NET 19there is a complete kitchen, with numerous freezers and fridges and that it is all well-organized. And, if theres any money left over in the till at the end of the week, Charlie “res up the barbie, tosses on two dozen thick steaks, ices down a few cases of free beers, and invites everyone onthe-hard for a party. Some yachties haul out for years there. Ernst, on Atlantis plans on relaunching sometime in 2015, and Adam, on Bravo has been out for four months, and says, ... gee, the food and beverages are great here! All you have to do is sprinkle some anti-fouling paint on your T-shirt, and youre instantly accepted as a tribal member. I love it. Why leave?Ž Exactly. It was enough to make a sailor scratch his head. But my alarm bells rang. The dirt dwellers are tricky. They use a million scams to sucker you in„being extremely nice, for example„and if the seasoned passage maker isnt careful, hes soon aground on his own coffee grounds. Eric Hiscock died of a heart attack just a stones throw from here„so I decided I had to get out. ... tooooo much niceness. It was a trap. I was in a rut„of being treated decently, respectfully, and friendly-like. I felt I HAD to ”ee. But bad weather is coming,Ž pleaded Ernst. And the pig roast is Wednesday night. It is best to stay here„living the easy life on-the-hard„for another year or two!Ž No way, Jose,Ž I screamed. I am splashing tomorrow in the rain, come hell-or-high-water.Ž Little did I know, wed get both„almost immediately. We launched amid rain showers and a dark, brooding sky. Locals were putting their cars in the garage. The local farmers were herding their sheep into their living rooms„a sure sign, if Id only noticed. Seagulls came inland, and landed in lakes. Cops wore galoshes. All the signs were there; I just wasnt interpreting them correctly. I have no excuses„only that the sub tropic low seemed to me to be so sub important that we could ignore it. Wrong! Almost dead wrong! Worse, wed just gotten a brand new 25 kilo Rocna anchor„ and my wife blurted out, I cant wait to put it to the test.Ž Watch what you wish for, babe!Ž I muttered, too blissed out from being a”oat again to think straight. We anchored in Urquharts Bay, right next to Alvah Simons famous sloop Roger Henry (See the book North to the Night for a lyrical explanation of Alvahs frozen-in-icefor-a-year insanity.) As I was mopping up the shipyard grit from our decks, I heard a crash below. What was that ,Ž I asked my wife. The barometer falling into the bilge,Ž she said. I retrieved it.

At 40 knots it buzzes, at 50 knots it reminds you to check your marine insurance, and at 60 knots it screams loudly over the mizzen mast mounted power hailer speaker, ... kiss your ass goodbye, Fatty!Ž Roads were ”ooded. Electricity was lost. Dams bulged. Reservoirs creaked. Bridges swayed. High rise buildings were evacuated ... Is that all you got,Ž I screamed into the howling wind while crawling forward yet again to check my snubber. Pathetic! I used to have a Chevy with a stronger heater fan! Linda Lovelace was more dangerous!Ž Oh, yes. I routinely laugh in the face of danger. Carolyn!Ž I shouted down through the hatch. Get the GoPro! I want to take a really stupid video of a really stupid person during a really stupid thing ... so that really stupid people can go on YouTube and stupidly watch it!Ž Great!Ž Carolyn said, who is not beyond any self-promotion that puts money in her purse. The wind was howling. Carolyn couldnt hear me so good. So I shouted. Im worried about ... I dont wanna ... DRAG!Ž I said. ... what?Ž she queried. Oh, not now Fatty! Your makeup will run if you have to go on deck again. Your stockings have more runs than Mickey Mantle. And I am not about to get your dresses out again so soon ... you dressed up as Mae West just last week!Ž ... anchor dragging,Ž I scolded, Not adult fun!Ž Yes, crew communication is important during a storm. We survived. Barely. It was only at the end that the Kiwi Met Of“ce admitted that wed just had the tail end of Cyclone Ita roll over us. Damn! Im like a hurricane magnet. Im serious! The South Atlantic never gets hurricanes„except when we were on passage between St. Helena and St. Barths. How many hurricanes have you been through?Ž Carolyn asked me. Twenty-eight,Ž I mused, give or take a dozen.Ž I paused, and then added, I guess that makes me lucky.Ž I guess that makes you stupid ,Ž said Carolyn.

Visit: Sailing Humor Its little hand was bent, and it was reading lower than my bank account. Useless piece of Chinese crap,Ž I said as I tossed it aside. My new boat is a 43ft ketch-rigged Wauquiez, and has a giant aft cabin with twin transom picture windows. By midnight, the wind had reached a steady 45 knots; we were eating popcorn, and watching our dinghy do cartwheels in the gusts. There goes the gas tank,Ž Carolyn giggled. Did you see how far the rubber gas hose stretched before snapping? The oars are long-gone,Ž I noted. They were ”ung a really long distance during the last triple-axial!Ž You must have really twisted those outboard clamps down hard,Ž Carolyn said admiringly. I mean, our dinghy has ”ipped its position more often than a Thai hooker, and yet its still attached to the transom. WOW!Ž There was a bang from the foredeck, which sounded like a cannon shot. Ah, the one-inch Nylon chain snubber has chafed through yet again. Reminds me of Hurricanes Hugo, Luis, Marilyn ...Ž Dont be a name-dropper,Ž Carolyn scolded. The breeze was up to 55 knots, and holding by this point. We were anchored in 40ft of water, with 240ft of 10mm chain and our new anchor. ... still here,Ž Carolyn sang out happily while twiddling the dials of our three anchor drag alarms. That new anchor is stronger than ... well, your armpit odor!Ž Not fair,Ž I said in self-defense, fear reeks, fresh water is precious, and Im only human.Ž Frankly, Im tired of having my yachts pretending to be yo-yos„and up and down and up and down! Do you have any idea how expensive it is to spray an entire 30,000lb vessel with WD40, both inside and out? Repeatedly. And thats only a minor part of sinking. During such moments, I try to focus on the Bright Side. Oh, look!Ž I say gaily to Carolyn, another one of our fellow boaters is getting his boat destroyed on the rocks. There goes his mast! Look at him bleed! The wife is crying! There are children in the water. GREAT! I feel better now!Ž Okay, so it is a little callous. Still, a cruising sailor must take his guilty pleasures when offered. Look,Ž screamed Carolyn with equal joy, that mansion on the beach just lost its roof!Ž The aptly-named catamaran named This Side Up just ”ipped,Ž I noted, and the monomaran named Titanic sank in a sea of irony!ŽDo you have any idea how expensive it is to spray an entire 30,000lb vessel with Wd40, both inside and out?

22 ALLATSEA.NET JULY 2014amazed … how could this be possible. Then, slowly, he nodded and smiled inwardly … there must have been collusion between him and the thieves. Next morning, the harbormaster came roaring out to the boat in a fast dinghy and sure enough he had the stolen items … but there was a necessary procedure before Charlie could have his stuff back. He would have to go to the catholic church some “ve miles away and read a statement in front of the priest to swear the items were undoubtedly his. The friendly harbormaster could give him a ride on the back of his motorbike. And so it was. When they arrived the whole village came out to greet the foreigner and Charlie was made to read a statement in front of a robed and bejeweled priest … in Indonesian … that purportedly con“rmed him as the owner of the stolen items. It was nothing more than a sideshow; villagers pointing and laughing, Charlie embarrassed and wondering if the gobbledygook he was saying was perhaps assigning him to a “ring squad. Finally, he was handed his possessions. Next day Charlie cleared for Lombok, with a large new padlock. Julian Putley is the author of The Drinking Mans Guide to the BVI, Sunfun Calypso and Sunfun Gospel Sailing Humor There is nothing quite as exciting as cruising the worlds little known destinations; it adds spice to the cruising life. Back in the 1980s when Charlie was cruising the world, he sailed to the remote regions of the Solomon Islands and Papua New Guinea, and after exploring much of Australias barrier reef he joined an ocean race to Indonesia (organized by the Darwin Yacht Club), with the sole purpose of getting a cruising permit to explore this amazing archipelago. In Darwin, Charlie shipped a girl aboard as mate and companion and the two of them joined the small ”eet for the 600 mile race ending in Ambon, one of the historic spice islands. Charlie stocked up with cloves, nutmeg and pepper and after all the celebrations and speeches by both Aussie and Indonesian yacht club of“cials, and armed with his cruising permit, he set off on his mission to explore southern Sulawesi and the Buton Straits. The voyage was incredible with anchorages off villages where wooden boats were built and dhows constructed; anchorages where, tied stern to the wooded shoreline, screeching monkeys were their only companions and huge sailing dhows, loaded to the gunwales, sailed back and forth (and forth and back). At the end of the 100 mile strait, at the regional capital of Bau Bau, they anchored and then went ashore to present themselves to local of“cials for clearance to continue. The harbormaster seemed to be a pleasant of“cial and after a short time all the formalities were taken care of and Charlie invited him to come aboard for sundowners later that evening. They returned to the boat and ƒ they had been robbed! But oddly enough nothing valuable had been stolen except a small short wave radio; they had also taken T-shirts, cassette tapes and a few old magazines. That evening, after a few forbidden drinks (Muslims are denied alcohol), Charlie, explaining the theft, said what a shame in such a welcoming town with such nice people.Ž Almost immediately the half-sloshed harbormaster exclaimed, I will get all your stolen items back.Ž Charlie was SAILING WITH CHARLIE THE SPICE OF LIFEBY JULIAN PUTLEY GRAPHICS BY HANNAH WELCH

24 ALLATSEA.NET JULY 2014 Racing Circuit Antigua Sailing Week was one of the “rst international yachting regattas to be held in the Caribbean. Back in the late 60s, The Nicholson family had a yacht charter business based in Antigua and Race Week as it was called then, was the end of season party where yacht skippers and their crew could have one big drink up with racing thrown in before they went their separate ways. Over the years Antigua Sailing Week developed into a much more high pro“le event, attracting up to 250 yachts with a lot of professional racing crew. Winning at Antigua Sailing Week became a rich prize. In 2010, with the world economy spiralling into recession and the double-whammy of Stanford Bank collapsing, Antigua Sailing Week was in a very dark place but the regatta has not only survived but changed into a highly successful affair. This year, Antigua Sailing Week attracted sailors from 23 different countries with 30% racing Bareboat Charters and many more sailors paying to play through skippered race charter boats.

Piet Vroons Dutch Ker 46, Tonnerre de Breskens was this years star performer, winning the Lord Nelson Trophy, arguably the biggest prize in Caribbean sailing, scoring eight straight bullets against top opposition in CSA Zero. With bigger faster yachts in our class, the overall strategy was to try and hold on upwind and get a lead on corrected time.Ž commented Tonnerre s crew boss, Frank Gerber. We knew that the opposition would be faster off the breeze but because they were in a dog “ght and we were in clear air, it played to our advantage. The core of the team has been together for about “ve years now and boat handling has been exceptionally good, honed at several regattas in the Caribbean. He added, Our worst place in all of the Caribbean races has been a second and we have got to be satis“ed with a consistent performance.Ž The vibe at this years regatta was fantastic and the weather perfect. Warm trade wind sailing in Caribbean swell is normal for Antigua but the wind speed was in the 15-17 knot range most of the time, offering breeze enough to give thrilling fast action and plenty of wind shifts to make racing tactically challenging. The standard of racing across all classes was the best this journalist has seen this season in the Caribbean. Several classes were decided by seconds in the last race and the standard of boat handling was as good as any club class regatta, anywhere. Ashore, after every race day, a daily prize giving was well attended on the lawn of the Antigua Yacht Club. The big night out was before Lay Day, Shaggy is an international star and Antigua Sailing Week was punching well above their weight to host the concert. However, English Harbour Rum took the gamble on covering the cost and with over 3000 tickets sold; the Antiguan Rum Company got a great marketing opportunity for little cost. Lay Day on Pigeon Beach saw hundreds of sailors enjoying the day off. Whilst most of the competitors lazed away the day on the beach, the Nonsuch Bay RS Elite Challenge had eight teams vying for a weeks stay at the luxury resort. The quality of the teams was “rst class but it was World Match Racing Champion and Americas Cup winner Peter Piet Vroons dutch Ker 46, Tonnerre de Breskens was this years star performer, winning the lord nelson trophy, arguably the biggest prize in Caribbean sailing.

26 ALLATSEA.NET JULY 2014Holmburg who stole the show, with a magni“cent display to win the “nal. It was interesting to see that three of the four teams that made the “nal contained Caribbean sailors, Holmberg is himself from the Virgin Islands. Antigua & Barbuda have had sailing in their national curriculum for several years and over 200 youngsters have received free sailing lessons. Antiguan Shannon Falcone was part of the winning crew of Team Oracle USA and was instrumental in bringing the Americas Cup to Antigua for Sailing Week. Antigua is re-developing its sailing culture both through ex-pats that live here and through local youth initiatives like their Sailing Academy and Shannon Falcones Lift Project. All Caribbean regattas are different, so what sets Antigua Sailing Week apart from the rest? Well, it is extremely well organised both in terms of race management and shoreside entertainment. This has become possible through the Regatta Organising Committee, which was set up three years ago. Kathy Lammers and Alison Sly-Adams work tirelessly to make the event a great success on and off the water and this is a much better regatta because of their efforts. Probably the only thing missing from the revival is a large number of high pro“le yachts. Many of these yachts do visit the Caribbean, but they return to Europe or the USA before Antigua Racing Circuit Sailing Week takes place. Perhaps this is a change that cannot be altered but if the regatta was moved to earlier in the season, maybe more high pro“le yachts would take part.

Living the Dream s Prather celebrated his 40th birthday by landing the winning 42-pounder at 7:30am. It was my “rst time in Virgin Gorda and my “rst time in a tournament, however, Ive grown up “shing lakes, rivers, and at sea,Ž says Prather. The wahoo took the lure strong, and I hooked him on the “rst of two hooks closest to the head of the lure, in the gills. It was very dif“cult to reel in due to where the “sh was hooked. It felt like I was dragging a “ve gallon bucket of cement into the boat.Ž Living the Dream “nished up the day with Lovarco catching another small wahoo at 1:30pm and angler Beth Basinski reeling in a 21lb wahoo an hour later.

34 ALLATSEA.NET JULY 2014 Diving DIVING BELIZEBY JOE ZENTNER Belize was considered by many divers to be a Western Hemisphere water paradise decades before it became the oh-so-trendy destination it is today. Exceptional diving is plentiful from end-to-end of the 190-mile-long (300km) Belize Barrier Reef, which extends from the northern tip of Ambergris Caye to the Sapodillo Cayes in Belizes southernmost region. Belize is located on the Yucatan Peninsula approximately 250 miles south of Cancun. It borders Mexico to the north, the Caribbean to the east and Guatemala on the west and south. The country offers all ranges of diving from shore diving,

Barrier reefs found here offer superb diving for beginners, including Hol Chan Marine Park, located a few miles south of Ambergris Caye. One can divide Belize into three distinctive dive locations, each with its own personality and types of diving. They are (1) three outer atolls: Lighthouse Reef, Turneffe Island, and Glovers Reef; (2) Ambergris Caye and the Northern Barrier Reef; and (3) The Southern Barrier Reef and Plancencia. Divers can mix and match each of these destinations on a single trip.What to SeeReefs, mostly mounds of colorful underwater limestone, are believed by many divers to be the most beautiful habitats found in the sea. Belize is home to the second largest barrier reef in the world. This spectacular sight, stretching from north to south, runs nearly parallel to the coast. Over 400 species of “sh, at least 70 types of coral and a variety of sponges are found in waters that surround Belizes Barrier Reef. The largest marine reserve in the country, the South Water Caye Marine Reserve stretches from Hopkins to the Sittee River and attracts increasing numbers of divers each year. A nearby underwater cave named Hell Hole awaits exploration; it has a mouth that in places is 15ft wide. Belize is a wall divers paradise. Sheer walls carrying such names as Painted Wall, Half Moon Caye and Quebrada are

Just offshore from the village of San Pedro, Hal Chan Marine Reserve is an underwater park situated at a deep cut in the barrier reef. Here divers can spot a variety of corals and throngs of grouper, snapper and barracuda. At Shark Ray Alley, people can snorkel with nurse sharks and stingrays. The Blue Hole, a collapsed freshwater cave system, is 1000ft across and 400ft deep. Jacques Yves Cousteau, declaring it in 1985 one of the top ten dive sites in the world, made the Blue Hole famous. One can, on a Blue Hole dive, see beautiful vertical stalactite formations. Only persons with considerable diving experience should attempt exploring the Blue Hole. Trips to the Blue Hole operate from San Pedro on Ambergris Caye, as well as from Caye Caulker and Turneffe. All trips involve a two-hour boat ride each way. Belize has an annual mean temperature of 79 degrees F. The humidity, while at times high, is tempered by sea breezes. Saltwater temperatures vary between 79 and 84 degrees. A visit to Belize is sure to be a memorable experience. It certainly was for me. Joe Zentner is a retired professor and a freelance writer/photographer. A regular visitor to the Caribbean, he has published articles in both scholarly journals and popular magazines. Zentner presently makes his home in North Carolina. Whether you dive from a mainland base, island hotel, or a live-aboard boat, Belize scuba operators have their own particular dive locations to share, in or near the Belize Barrier Reef. Dive shops exist most everywhere there is access to the reef. Belize is home to three of the four coral atolls found in the Western Hemisphere, with Turneffe being the most biologically diverse. To dive here contact Turneffe Flats Diving Resort at 1-888-512-8812.

There is an easy-to-navigate website to check out the details, contact the staff and make reservations (see below). Since most of you reading this article are approximately 600 miles upwind of where I am writing it, I should tell you that those of us here think of this little hideaway as The Undiscovered Caribbean. It is an easy downwind sail from the Windward/Leeward Islands and we invite you to come over and explore our neighborhood. If you wish to dawdle along the way, pleasant ports of call such as the ABC Islands, Colombia, and San Blas Islands are available along the way. Once you arrive there are nine relatively high islands and hundreds of little mangrove islands for you to explore and, as I write, there are probably 50 prime anchorages without a single boat in them. Last time I was in the Eastern Caribbean that was not the norm. If you are of the marina temperament, there are three handsome ones to choose from with my favorite, Bocas Marina, offering First World amenities at below First World prices. The main town is a poster child for un-gentri“ed but cool. It is full of surfers, backpackers and sailors with nary a Kardashian in sight. There are plenty of grocery stores and hardware stores and lots of great little restaurants and bars. It is friendly and safe, and our neighborhood watch committee does not allow hurricanes. Other charming aspects to Bocas del Toro include excellent beaches, nice young reefs and jungles full of toucans, sloths and poisonous tiny frogs. Fortunately they are toxic only if you lick them … and I gave that up for Lent. The vistas are exquisite … with high mountains and volcanoes in the background and miniature waves at your feet. Thats because this is essentially a protected, inland sea. Writing this report it dawns on me that there probably is no patron saint for travel-lifts so Ill “nish it here.

40 ALLATSEA.NET JULY 2014In a recent edition of All At Sea we discussed Emergency Positioning Beacons (EPIRBs) and Personal Location Beacons (PLBs) but there is also another option of emergency communication known as satellite messengers. In a life-threatening situation, having a way of contacting emergency services at the touch of a button is a reassuring thought. Many of us venture out of cellular range and we should have a means of hailing help other than the smartphone in our pocket. EPIRBs and PLBs are no longer the only option as certain satellite messengers can also get help when out of cellular range. This particular breed of communication device adds capabilities that make them not only valuable in an emergency situation but also offer a non-emergency communication capability. Two companies products are at the forefront of this technology, each with its own unique offerings. Each has devices that have the capability of communicating distress signals as well as having 100% satellite messaging technology via orbiting satellite systems. These are the Spot line of products from Globalstar and DeLormes inReach line of products. Globalstars name is synonymous with satellite communications and is recognized for its affordable, compact satellite phones and airtime packages, all running on their own network of satellites.

Simply by dialing 911 from your phone you are automatically routed to a GEOS International Emergency Response Center where the appropriate respondents are contacted to initiate a rescue wherever you are in the world. The company also offers a line of inexpensive one-way satellite messengers that have the capability of sending a mayday signal via satellite and through a private network to hail search and rescue … all with the push of a button. These one-way communicators are also capable of sending tracking information as well as short text messages to pre-determined recipients. One of their most popular units is the Spot Gen 3. With improved battery life running on AAA lithium batteries, or powered via USB, this small distinctive black and orange waterproof device “ts in the palm of your hand. All its buttons are on the front panel and the emergency hailing button is tucked behind an easily opened protective ”ap. There are built-in loops on either end that allow for attachment and these units even come with a strap and carabineer clip. The buttons have diagrams indicating what each is for. Lifting the ”ap with the SOS on it exposes a red button. By pressing and holding this button a green light will appear, indicating that the signal has been sent to the EGOS International Emergency Response Center, via satellite, where they dispatch help. If you were to press the button by mistake then you can hold the button down for a few seconds until a red light appears indicating the signal has been turned off. This is all very important but the other buttons are what makes this unit particularly interesting. There is a button with a checkmark and OK on it. Pressing this button until a green light appears above the button means you can notify a predetermined list of recipients of your location and that you are ok. They will receive a text message or email (depending on how you set it up) with a link to Google Earth with GPS coordinates indicating your location. There is also a tracking button (the one with a boot print on it). By pressing this button you can initiate automatic tracking via your own Spot share page online. Tracking rates can be as short as every 2.5 seconds to every hour and are also determined by your subscription program. The Gen 3 is a smart unit that can sense when it is not moving and will not transmit new tracking information until it senses motion again. Another button has a dialog bubble on it. Pressing this will send a custom, predetermined message along with your GPS location to select individuals. The last button (with two hands reaching for each other) is an assist button. Pressing this can send a message to predetermined recipients that you need non-emergency help. Another of Globalstars offerings is their Spot Connect. This unit has the capability of the Gen 3 but kicks it up a notch. It can allow for custom one-way outgoing texting via Bluetooth through your smart phone loaded with their app. Now you can use your phone to send either predetermined or custom text messages on any of the features mentioned above. You can even activate the SOS button and send along a text message to rescuers. Should your phone battery die, the Spot Connect can function via its All its buttons are on the front panel and the emergency hailing button is tucked behind an easily opened protective ”ap.

The messages allow for 160 characters and the number of messages permitted depends on the subscription plan you choose. If you go over your allotted number of messages you will be billed 50 cents per message. SOS messages are unlimited no matter what plan you select. Kim Stiver of DeLorme explained that there is now a new program offered by her company where you can activate and deactivate the inReach on a monthly basis rather than having to pay for the year. Those plans start at $14.95 per month. All functions are visible through the clear display, and intuitively placed buttons make operation simple and ”uid. When paired via Bluetooth to a mobile device you can have access to DeLormes famous mapping and utilize features such as route planning through the device. It has an internal battery with a life of up to 1000 full cycles and can be charged easily via a supplied USB cord or one of their optional powered RAM mounts. Should you need the battery to be replaced Delorme can do so for a nominal fee. No matter which device you select it is important that you have some way of communicating while in remote areas. The number of lives saved by EPIRBs, PLBs and devices such as these proves that they work. Isnt your life worth the minimal cost of one of these devices?

It is likely that the same is true for many Caribbean island nations and countries too. Its no wonder then that Wessley Merten, Ph.D., student in the department of marine sciences at the University of Puerto Rico in Mayagez has focused his doctoral research on the dolphin“sh. Merten has long been fascinated with this “sh species. Hes shared much of his original research over the years in a number of internationally respected peer-reviewed journals. Topics covered in these articles have ranged from population studies and daily diving behavior to migration. Yet not everyone is going to seek out this information on the internet, subscribe to the journals or get a complete DOLPHINFISH COMETO THE SCREENIN AJOURNEYPELAGIC BY CAROL M.

Some of the messages delivered, for example, are that the dolphin“sh around Puerto Rico are actually a single genetic population that occurs as different seasonal runs between the north and south coast. In addition, migration data suggests a westerly trend towards Hispaniola and points further to the west such as the Turks and Caicos, Bahamas, and United States.Ž Dolphin“sh are annually landed in 35 exclusive economic zones in the western central Atlantic. This means its necessary to build a thorough understanding of their migration in order to manage and conserve the species multi-jurisdictionally and internationally. In the future, and to allow a more thorough description of migration, Merten hopes the conventional mark and release program can expand to the southern Caribbean Sea. Research presented in Mertens “lm was “rst collected in 2002 when the “rst dolphin“sh was tagged and released off Charleston, South Carolina. Since then, the Cooperative Science Services LLC., Dolphin“sh Research Program formed by “shery biologist Donald Hammond, has recruited hundreds of sport “shermen who have released thousands of dolphin“sh and subsequently reported recaptures when and where they have occurred. To this extensive database, Merten undertook 61 “shing trips around Puerto Rico and interviewed renowned marine scientists and local “shermen in order to produce the images. He ultimately put together this “lm for the public to see, learn from and enjoy. Without the assistance of the sport “shing community this research and the production of this “lm would have never come to fruition,Ž Merten says. Aside from using conventional mark and release techniques, some sport “shermen volunteered their time and vessels to assist Dolphin“sh Research Program “eld biologists to deploy pop-up satellite archival transmitters to investigate the diving behaviors of these pelagic predators. Since 2004, 15 satellite tags with a price of $4,000 each have been deployed on these “sh adding to our knowledge of their vertical movements.Ž Caribbean sports “shermen interested in this research can assist by visiting to sign up for a free tagging kit to tag and release small healthy dolphin“sh.

46 ALLATSEA.NET JULY 2014 TRENDS IN POWER CATAMARAN DESIGN & FUEL EFFICIENCY Charter operators, sports “shermen and ferry owners prioritize function and bottom line when choosing a power catamaran. When “nding out whats new in this arena, theres no one better to ask than the team at Gold Coast Yachts in St. Croix, USVI. Over the last 25 years, the company has custom built over 100 sailing vessels and power catamarans. Roger Hat“eld, born into a sailing family and an early convert to multihulls and now power cats, leads the design team. All At Sea spoke with Hat“eld about trends in power cat design and build and how design features are making for greater fuel ef“ciency.AAS: Why have power catamarans become so popular?GCY: Power catamarans have several advantages over standard power boats. Fuel ef“ciency is one component. BY CAROL M. BAREUTHER PHOTOS COURTESY OF GOLD COAST YACHTS Standard power boats, especially in the Caribbean, usually cannot operate at a full planing speed where that might approach the ef“ciency of a power cat especially at speed above 30 knots. Below this speed, and when it is rough, the power cat simply slices through the waves with greater comfort for its passengers and at up to half the total fuel consumption.AAS: What are evolutions in hull design for power cats?GCY: Most monohull power boat designers who switched to multihulls retained the hard chines. The hard chine slender cat works on the same theories as the monohull. However, little extra lift is provided by this slender shape plus penalties accrue. For example, the minimum surface area created by a round bottom cannot approach that of Artists impression of the proposed power trimaran


JULY 2014 ALLATSEA.NET 47 a V-shape. A V-shape with the same area as a semi-circular hull would have at least 10% more perimeter and thus more drag. I think the popularity of the hard chine cat will linger on for a while as choice of building materials frequently affects hulls shape. Aluminum and plywood are popular plate materials that are dif“cult to bend and, when used, slightly compromise any ef“ciency that might be gained when using a pure round hull shape. AAS: How do you build maximum ef“ciency in your power cat designs?GCY: By making choices such as in the slenderness ratio and the prismatic coef“cient. The slenderness ratio is the ratio of the waterline length to the beam. Any ratio below 10:1 will start dragging that nasty transverse wave, which are those that follow along behind you perpendicularly to your travel direction, and they also make a slightly larger divergent wave, which are those that get plowed out from either side by fatter-hulled boats. Hulls with near 10:1 will have less wetted surface than very slender hulls and are an okay choice if the intention is to go at a low to medium speed. Hulls exceeding 16 or 17:1 will be excellent at the upper end of medium speeds. These vessels are slimmer and can cut through the waves more easily for a softer ride but can be susceptible to dropping further into waves and need to have high under wing clearance. This has been our “rst choice in craft for the Caribbean conditions. AAS: How does the stern shape of a power cat affect its ef“ciency?GCY: Sterns have been our largest evolution in the last twenty years. These slender craft do not plane, therefore they need a stern that closes the water behind them rather than pulling it along with them. There are two choices. The Malcolm Tennant-style stern uses a vertical transom like a Caribe Spirit (81ft) in action


48 ALLATSEA.NET JULY 2014 Trends in Power Catamaran Design & Fuel Ef“ciency canoe from which the propeller shaft exits at the bottom corner. It has a ”at extension that hangs out beyond this and holds the rudder and helps reduce pitching. The Lock Crowther shape shows the hull having a reverse rocker such that the propeller can be placed up higher and the stern still allows some pitch dampening. They both have their special attributes. AAS: Could you offer an example of ef“ciency using the concepts youve spoken of above?GCY: My favorite example is the 83ft power cat we built in May of 1999. She has done well over a half million miles serving the Key West … Dry Tortugas … Fort Jefferson route. She averaged 21.2 knots on her maiden voyage to Florida and used exactly a gallon of diesel per mile carrying a 2/3 passenger load of fuel for the delivery. Thats pretty green! She is a wave-piercer, which is a normal power cat that got stretched out a little further to be more slender. Wavepiercers are our “rst choice for fuel ef“cient comfort with good speed in the rough conditions of the Caribbean. AAS: What do you foresee in the future of power cat design?GCY: I doubt there will be large design evolutions unless it is with foils. Foils will always come with problems as do all appendages. Clearly the use of carbon “ber will grow, reducing the weight of the craft. Many of our power cats have left with major components having been built with carbon “ber. The cost of the materials can be compared directly to the fuel saved over time usually with good payback. One of the next catamarans we are going to build will be all carbon “ber.AAS: What else is on the horizon for you?GCY: We have been approached to develop a maximally comfortable and fuel ef“cient boat to compete with our own catamarans. We have spent considerable time creating a 70ft wave-piercing power trimaran to compete with our 60ft wave piercing catamarans. We are con“dent that the vessel will use at least 30% less fuel than our cats and be slightly more comfortable due to its extra length. It is intended for the toughest inter island passages. Carol M.

Secondly, the board was constructed thick enough to carry the 200lb Simpson, his 65lb bag (packed with dehydrated foods, safety equipment, a hammock and other supplies for beach camping at night) and a daily average of “ve-gallons or 40lb of drinking water. Third, the board had a 29-inch beam, four-inches wider than a typical SUP race board, for added stability. Fourth and “nally, the narrow tail on the 17-foot long board made it easier to ride big swells. This last feature proved a key point. Instead of ”at calm on the islands southern shore as his Puerto Rican friends predicted, Simpson experienced a wild ride in all but 20-miles of his 13-day trip spanning late February to early March. The original plan was to start from San Juan and paddle clockwise or to keep making rights until we were back where we started,Ž Simpson says. It took us two days to cover the “rst 19 miles to Loiza.

However, he says he did question his decision when breaking waves in the south meant staying at least twomiles offshore and while out there he saw no other boats at all … recreational or commercial. This was also the stretch he ran into his most potentially serious incident. Simpson fell off his board in huge seas off Salinas, his leash wrapped around the board and trapped him underneath until he unleashed. The next day, on the way to Guanica, he purposely didnt leash up so as not to experience the same problem. Instead, a breaking wave tripped him off the board and he had to swim a mile through a reef and into a lagoon before he could recover it.

We believed we could do it before setting sail, but from there to actually win, considering the high level of talent in the ”eet this year, its quite extraordinary,Ž admits Gahinet, who was interviewed on the dock after celebrating with the traditional spray of champagne. Fabien Delahaye and Yoann Richomme, aboard Skipper Macif sailed across the line 1h 6m 53s later for second place. Behind them, a superb duel developed for third place between Alexia Barrier and Laurent Pellecuer aboard 30 Corsaires and Roland Jourdain and Martin Le Papes La Cornouaille Approaching the port of Gustavia, they put on a thrilling display of match racing, skillfully tacking around the boats anchored in the harbor. Barrier and Pellecuer maintained an 87s lead over their adversaries to claim a place on the podium. Sadly, the sailors who took the northern route across the 2014 TR ANSAT AG2R VICTORY FOR GWNOL GAHINET AND PAUL MEILHAT BY ELLEN LAMPERT-GRAUX Atlantic„a poor choice as they suffered from a serious lack of wind„did not arrive until Wednesday morning. Those opting for the northern route included famous French ocean racing sailors Michel Desjoyeaux, who won this race in 1992, sailing this year with Corentin Horeau on the boat Bretagne Crdit Mutuel Performance and Jean le Cam, also a former winner, sailing with Gildas Mah aboard Interface Concept Having taken the northern route, they could onlywatch as their lead passed to those who headed south. The 2014 edition of the event came to a close on the evening of May 1st with the arrival of the last boat„Mathieu Forbin and Arthur Prats Guadeloupe Grand Large 1 They had been at sea for 25d 13h 14m 29s to cover the 3,890 nautical miles to Saint Barthlmy.

JULY 2014 ALLATSEA.NET 67 Trinidad Time-tested craftsmanship combined with stateof-the-art technology. This is a great way to describe the boats built by Christopher Chris Scott and his team at Calypso Marine, in Chaguaramas, Trinidad. Theres no doubt about the popularity of Scotts Pirogue and Deep V designs. Youll see them on nearly every Caribbean island at work as sport “shing charters, ferries, dive boats and pleasure craft. The art of boatbuilding is a time-honored tradition in Trinidad & Tobago. The creation of the twin island countrys signature Pirogue, crafted from a lap-strake construction process over a century old and started when vessels were made out of wood rather than “berglass, is a special talent that has been passed down from generation to generation. Its no surprise that Scott learned all of his marine manufacturing skills from his father, Dennis Scott. My dad was trained as an aeronautical engineer,Ž says Scott. He loved to “sh and started building boats under our house. I began working with him full-time at the age of 15. He taught me everything.Ž The Scott family patriarch moved the boatbuilding business to Miami, Florida, in 1985. Chris went with him. Once there, the two changed the name from Scott to Calypso Marine for catchier marketing. Economic downturns in the late 80s and early 90s led Chris back home to Trinidad and CALYPSO MARINE THE ART OF BOATBUILDINGBY CAROL M. BAREUTHER

Roseau +767-440-BOAT (2628) Portsmouth +767-445-4322 in 1994 he restarted the family business. Today, Calypso Marine is known for its Pirogue and Deep V craft, handfashioned in sizes from 15 to 37-feet. The Pirogues are displacement boats that provide a ”at dry ride,Ž Scott explains. They are great all-purpose boats. Our 34-footer can easily go from 12-foot seas into an area with only 20 inches of water.Ž The Pirogue is a traditional Caribbean-style “shing design recognizable for its sharp 60-degree bow and raised sheer forward combined with a moderate V that has about a ten degree deadrise at the transom. Fully reversed chines add stability and keep spray channeled downward. The Deep V is a model that Scott has added to his repertoire more recently. He claims its the driest designed hull of its type. This feature is something an owner noticed when they cruised some 30 miles offshore to the Virgin Islands North Drop for “shing and stayed perfectly dry. At fast speeds the boats planing hull creates an extremely comfortable ride. Scotts operation at Calypso Marine is the antithesis of a big factory that spits out cookie-cutter production boats. The emphasis at his operation off Chaguaramas Western Main Road is one-at-a-time custom construction. Scott sits with prospective owners and talks through every detail desired. I have ten guys that have worked with me for many years,Ž says Scott. We dont use machine cut-outs or computer imaging to create the design. I start with the wood and shape it like my dad taught me to create an exterior with an aesthetic sleek look. Everything is custom. We hand lay all the “berglass and we dont use spray on resin or chopper guns. Even though Im the owner, I still spray the gel coat, roll the “berglass and cut the wood.Ž Scott installs equipment as per the owners request such as hi-tech electronics, full auto-pilot and twin-screen radar once the exterior and interior are complete. A 32 to 34-foot Deep V will take on average four to six weeks to complete. The advantage of his location on the northwest coast of Trinidad is the ability to easily trial new vessels in calm bay waters as well as the rougher Caribbean Sea to the north and Atlantic Ocean to the east. Next up, Scott is considering a move to a larger location in Trinidad. Plus, hell also be building a bigger boat. A 45-footer is in the works for a customer in St. Martin. Tell me what youre looking for and Ill build it,Ž says Scott. What makes me happy is seeing the “nished product and my customers happy.Ž Carol M.
