8 ALLATSEA.NET SEPTEMBER 2014 Editors Log Whats new on the boatyard scene? According to Carol Bareuthers annual boatyard update theres plenty going on as yards throughout the Caribbean expand and add new services to their facilities. All is revealed on page 44. Years ago, as the editor and publisher of a St. Maarten sailing/boating newspaper, I got into trouble for running a story about hurricanes. Advertisers said it would put people off traveling to the islands and so it threatened their business. I like to think All At Sea readers are a worldlier bunch who understand that countries within the hurricane belt might feel the effects of the occasional tropical blast. September is the height of the Atlantic storm season and, as you are turning these pages, I hope you have one eye on developments in east. Quite a few of our correspondents have been through hurricanes and I have experienced several “rsthand. Julian Putley rode out hurricane Hugo at anchor in St. John and to mark the 25th anniversary, he tells his story. Geographically, the Bahamas are not part of the Caribbean but we often feature this beautiful region knowing that Gary E. Brown, Editor many cruisers, power and sail, make this 5,358 square mile wonderland part of their Caribbean adventure. My wife and I spent over a year cruising the Bahamas in our cutter Driac II and so it holds a special place in our hearts. On page 49, Rosie Burr describes a cruise through the Exumas. Just look at the color of that water. It is almost a certainty that if you have ever bought a boat, it wont be your last. Boats are an addiction that many never overcome. Of all the boat addicts I have ever met, Todd Duff takes the biscuit. He has owned more than 50 and hes still counting. If ever a sailor needed help, its Todd! See for yourself. His story is on page 34. ISLANDS, RAFTS & REMARKABLE MENSee you on the water! As editor of All At Sea I have met some truly remarkable people and one of the most remarkable was Anthony Smith. In 2011, aged 85, Smith, with companions David Hildred (57, from the Virgin Islands), Andrew Bainbridge (56, from Canada) and John Russell (61, from the UK) crossed the Atlantic on a raft made of water pipes with a corrugated sheet-metal pig pen for a cabin and a telegraph pole for a mast. In a life of action, Smith pioneered ballooning and in 1962 ”ew a hydrogen balloon across Africa, and a year later became the “rst Britain to ”y a balloon across the Alps. He rode a motorcycle from England to South Africa and back, presented a science show on TV, wrote 30 books and even had a “sh named after him. Smith had long harbored a desire to pay tribute to the survivors of the SS Anglo Saxon a British merchantman sunk off the west coast of Africa by a German warship in 1940. Of an original seven sailors who scrambled into the merchant ships lifeboat, only two „ Roy Widdicombe and Robert Tapscott „ survived the 2,800-mile journey across the Atlantic. They eventually landed on the island of Eleuthera in the Bahamas. As I grew longer in the tooth, I began to think that some kind of re-enactment might be interesting,Ž said Smith. The idea grew in my mind that, using a raft, I would cross the very waters where Tapscott and Widdicombe had suffered so horrendously. With luck, I might even land on the beach where they had struggled up the shore.Ž Smiths eventual enactment, on the raft he named Antiki, went a little off course and instead of the Bahamas they ended up in St. Maarten. A year later, Smith, then 86, left St. Maarten to complete the voyage and after a hair-raising time off the Silver Banks, rode a gale of wind over the reef onto the same beach in Eluthera where Roy Widdicombe and Robert Tapscott had stepped ashore. In my interviews with Anthony Smith, he said he hated getting old. I dont believe he ever did. PHOTO: OCEANMEDIA ANTHONY SMITH BORN MARCH 30 1926, DIED JULY 7 2014

16 ALLATSEA.NET SEPTEMBER 2014 News CARIBBEAN NEWS A BRIEF LOOK INTO THE HAPPENINGS OF OUR WORLD Caribbean Sailing Association no longer provide minimum safety requirements The Caribbean Sailing Association has made the decision to no longer provide Minimum Safety Requirements for regattas in the Caribbean. It was discussed and recognized at the 2013 Annual General Meeting that this important function is being addressed by several other sailing organizations at a much greater level, and it was therefore voted that the CSA should remove itself following the 2014 racing season. This announcement is being made now so that organizers can include reference to the appropriate rules in their Notices of Race for 2015 events. Regatta organizers are now encouraged to look at the existing available guidelines and select those that best suit their event(s) and the conditions they will be sailing under. They are encouraged to further customize chosen guidelines as they see “t to ensure the right level of safety requirements are in place for their particular event. Two of the leading organizations that have recently addressed Safety Regulations and offer several categories to choose from are ISAF and US Sailing. Their regulations can be found at: and Trophies for RORC Transatlantic Race Two magni“cent perpetual trophies will be awarded to winners of the Royal Ocean Racing Clubs inaugural Transatlantic Race this November. Departing from Puerto Calero, Lanzarote, the “rst yacht to complete the course and cross the “nish line in Grenada, will be presented with an exquisite sterling silver trophy by the International Maxi Association (IMA). An equally impressive trophy has been sought for the Overall Winner in IRC by the RORC and John Bowles, a specialist in sporting trophies, certainly came up trumps. The race may be new to the clubs offshore racing calendar, but the magni“cent antique sterling silver trophy is far from it. Handmade in London in 1928 by John Parkes during the heyday of craftsmanship for such trophies, the RORC Transatlantic Race 2014 winner will be privileged to accept the 104 troy-ounce trophy that is beautifully chased with intricate decoration. Both trophies will be awarded at the Prizegiving ceremony, to be held at Camper & Nicholsons Marina Port Louis, Grenada on Saturday 20th December 2014. For further information on the RORC Transatlantic Race 2014, visit: MARK YOUR CALENDARSKick off your annual Caribbean sailing campaign by entering the 22nd St. Croix International Regatta. Set for November 14th …16th, there will be a one-day Commodores Race followed by two days of competition for the International Regatta Trophy. Three day entry fee is only $150.

18 ALLATSEA.NET SEPTEMBER 2014YOU HAVE A CHOICE: SAIL OR SPEND! BY CAPN FATTY GOODLANDERSailing Humor For the last decade or two Ive been averaging around 8,000 nautical miles per year. This isnt easy to do. Luckily, I have some advantages. For instance, if my wife is ashore she spends money, but at sea, nada. So, yes, Im motivated. Like most sailboaters, Im cheap. I live on the pennies Scotsmen throw away. There are other reasons. What are they? Take a moment, dear reader, and observe the pigmentation of your skin. Whatever color you are is the color I dont like. I know, I know„this isnt considered PC and is rarely mentioned these days. But thats the truth. I “nd people of your color and my color and any other colors sub-intelligent, evil, stupid, mean, dumb, and greedy beyond belief. To put it another way, Im prejudiced against people. I do not like my species. They are gleefully killing the planet in the name of gross pro“t. Heavy thoughts? Yeah. It is one thing to be the worst predator in the neighborhood. It is another thing to eat/burn/consume that neighborhood in the name of free enterprise. What exactly is freeabout the destruction of our planet? Were the aboriginals and the American Indians we slaughtered that much smarter than we? Lets just stop and consider this for a moment. Our habitat„Planet Earth„is being heated up by the land sharks to such a degree (sic) that mankind might expire and the people who are doing this think that investing in industrial air-conditioning units is wise. Wise ? I believe that money doesnt talk, it swears. Now, perhaps you havent noticed but Mother Ocean is still remarkably free of capitalists running amok. All the mon-


SEPTEMBER 2014 ALLATSEA.NET 19ey in the world wont help you in the middle of an offshore gale. There are no cellphone towers, no lying/cheating internet providers, no iClouds with dollar signs printed on them. Even more amazing, theres no celebrity gossip to distract you from the fact that some boys from Texas looted the national treasury a while back„at the same time some other boys from Wall Street stuck the American taxpayer with their bad gambling debts, cocaine costs, and hooker fees. I am NOT making this up. So my task seems clear„to try to spend a few pleasant afternoons with my wife while our planet and culture ”ames out. My vessel is the key. Money is not the key. Money, in fact, is the False God of the Offshore Sailor. You cant buy safety at sea at Kmart. Seamanship cant be bought. It must be earned. Thats why the oceans are still empty„and thats why I live in such ecologically pristine places as Beveridge and Minerva Reefs, Chagos, and the long forgotten isles of lost Indonesia. How do I do this? It is simple„but “rst you have to do something really, really scary. You have to take your blinders off. You have to remove your culture “lter and see reality„not the sales pitch. My central premise is dead simple: Money doesnt buy you much and money is expensive. Money is expensive? Yeah. Money owns you as much as you own it. It is a huge hassle. For instance, everyone wants it„and thus attempts to enslave you as a consumer. It is taxed. People who really dislike you attempt to befriend you because of it. It takes a lot of servicing, looking after, and endless counting. What does money buy? Anything important? Love? Health? Respect? No. It buys baubles„and baubles have no lasting value whatsoever. Money doesnt even buy leisure time! Go down to the nearest mega-yacht marina right now. Fight your way through the LEOs (law enforcement of“cers) who are protecting the super-rich and ask the maid who is scrubbing the toilets aboard how often her owner actually visits his 100 million dollar vessel. Not often, statistically. Why? Because the billionaire has to service his money. Ha ha! The poor sap! No wonder it burns his butt that guys like me are having their cake and eating it too! I believe that you should be able to buy a vessel with an initial cost of, say, the price your average yachtsman in the Lesser Antilles spends on their onboard electronics„and then sail it safely and joyously around the world on far fewer pennies than it would cost the USA to incarcerate you for an equal amount of time.


20 ALLATSEA.NET SEPTEMBER 2014embarrassed, and said, Yeah, that new boat of yours is really fast!Ž But what I was really thinking was that if Id have wanted to arrive three days earlier, Id have left three days earlier„ and spending 72 hours less at sea translated, in my hedonistic world, to missing at least two wonderful adult exercise sessions„which would be a real shame! Life is too short not to smell the roses. The funniest part of this need-for-speed-at-a-snails-pace concept is how much it costs for a Dyneema mainsheet and the lightweight (whats the trade name, Air Head blocks?) sail control systems which accompany it ƒ all controlled by a skipper who hasnt the foggiest notion where the end of his boom should go within a yard or two! Its crazy. Most of the time that I„serial circumnavigator that I am„spend adjusting my sails isnt to make my vessel go faster but safer, cheaper, and more comfortably. Speed isnt safe, cheap, or comfortable. Speed is expensive, dangerous, and uncomfortable. So how in the hell did Madison Avenue convince sailors that the very thing that theyre in search of (the tranquility and peace of Mother Ocean) should be rushed through dangerously and uncomfortably at vast expense? Are we yachtsmen really that shallow? That gullible? That easily hoodwinked? Most modern sailboats are set up to consume stuff because they are owned by people who were born and bred to consume. Fine. Thats an option. But you cant put a lot of sea miles on your vessel if youre busy renting marine experts to drill holes in your hull to install stuff that will quickly break and/or go out-of-“ckle-fashion soon anyway. So the reality is that most of the boats with all the bells and whistles are sitting in a marina somewhere waiting for expensive parts to be air-freighted in. Which is “ne. We know numerous newbie circumnavigators who arent having a particularly pleasant experience. They spend all their time at sea worrying about their vessel and all their time at the dock buying stuff for their vessel„and spending $100,000 a year to do so. But they tend to sail far less than the modest, basic cruiser with a wind vane, stout rig, dry bilge, open mind, and little else. The world is my oyster„the sea my classroom. My boat isnt “lled with toys„it is “lled with tools. I sail to journey, not to arrive. And so can anyone„on the pennies Scotsmen throw away. EDITORS NOTE: Capn Fatty is on his 54th year of living aboard, and is currently at sea heading for Bali via the Torres Straits. Sailing Humor Yes, circumnavigators such as me are saving the US taxpayer a bundle! Of course, said vessel would look and act differently than the modern harbor-hugger in search of a place to thrust its hungry shore-power cord. It would not be a ”oating ATM purposely set up for easy looting by land sharks. It would not be a vessel set up for consuming stuff„but rather a vessel intended to live in harmony with Mother Ocean. One of the goo“est things about yachting is this speed thingy. Ive never understood it. However, it is a total given and a wonderful sales hook to “sh dollar bills out of yachting billfolds. It has been repeated so often and so loud and so all-persuasively„that it just is. It is an accepted, commonly held belief that we should make our sailboats go fast. How stupid is that? Perhaps making your Lear jet go fast has some logic„ but your sailboat? Lets take a look at your sails„these expensive rags a yachtsman uses to harness the wind. The conventional wisdom is that they need to be relatively new, so that they have the proper shape to harness the wind in an ef“cient, fast manner. This sounds totally logical„and yet is really goofy (in my humble opinion). Why do you want to go fast? Why would I want to rush through the very same natural environment that Ive worked my entire life to be able to afford to visit? Besides, what is fast? Two of my dearest friends recently consulted me and purchased a very fast 44ft aluminum French racer. They then spent a small fortune on high-tech sails, expensive sail control systems, and complicated sailing electronics. Being racers, they ”ew in a crew from the Med. We were going to leave the Galapagos on the same day, but getting all their electronics and plotters and interfaces working took an extra few days. So they worked frantically (and expensively) and shoved off 72 hours after we did. They raced the whole way„often running at night with their asymmetrical chute to reach up a bit or switching to the symmetrical chute when dead-down was a better VMG choice. Of course, all this high loading had a cost: they collapsed a spinnaker pole during a squall; they severely chafed their mainsail on the spreaders, and one crew member hurt her wrist on the traveler during a heavy-air jibe at midnight. My wife Carolyn and I poled out our one white floppy thing (jib) on our $3,000 yacht, took off our clothes, and had fun. Our vessels arrived in Fatu Hiva within hours of each other after a passage of 3,200 ocean miles. The racers were very happy. Theyd beaten us by three days„and mentioned it numerous times. And each time we played along, looked


22 ALLATSEA.NET SEPTEMBER 2014anyone else (the VHF, however, was not common during the Battle of Trafalgar). Like most safety equipment it is important to read the instructions and, if possible, test the items in question. Flares have expiry dates and these should be checked. Hand-held ”ares should be pointed downwind of the holder to avoid singed eyebrows. Rocket ”ares should be “red with a clear trajectory. Charlies friend Jonas kept a ”are gun handy in his house (guns are illegal in the BVI) to shoot at possible intruders. One day he was “ddling with the cocking mechanism and it went off. It shot into the wall, bounced off, hit a computer screen, bounced off and hit the wood ceiling, ricocheted onto the couch and burnt a four inch diameter hole right through it before damaging an expensive Mexican ”oor tile. The house “lled with smoke and a devastating “re could have resulted. Conclusion: Dont “re a ”are gun inside your boat unless its a life or death situation. In this case an ounce of prevention may not be worth the cure. Julian Putley is the author of The Drinking Mans Guide to the BVI, Sunfun Calypso and Sunfun Gospel Sailing Humor Emergency procedures are not to be taken lightly when venturing out onto the ocean. There are all kinds of devices that can be employed in the event of a serious catastrophe. Charlie commonly teaches the ASA 104 Bareboat course and all these methods must be memorized. In real life, though, you would never use them while cruising the bareboat circuit … at least in the BVI. Why would you deploy a life raft in BVI waters ƒ sitting there baking in the hot sun awaiting rescue when you could climb into your dinghy and motor ashore. In all cruising areas in the wonderful archipelago of the BVI, you are never more than six miles from land. Some methods described in the text book are doubtful. Firing off a gun may frighten away would be rescuers. Waving outstretched arms up and down may elicit an equal response, like: Hey! How you doin.Ž Lighting a “re on board might get you: Look, theyre havin a barbie.Ž The tried and true method of getting help is the VHF radio, Channel 16. Students are told to only call Mayday in the event of potential loss of life situations … and this does not include running aground where you are expected to get off yourself. So, when a dire circumstance arises, transmit on Ch.16 and say May Day, three times. Then give the name of your vessel, the nature of the emergency and your location. Your location: Im in the BVI, common 30 years ago, is now expected to be more accurate. Interestingly the three emergency calls, in order of seriousness: May Day, Pan Pan (for serious situations but not impending loss of life) and Securite (for warnings or navigational information) are derived from the French language. May Day comes from Maidez (help me), Pain Pain (Ive run out of bread) and the other one, self explanatory. But why would the French have the honor of dictating the worlds emergency vocabulary. The answer may well be that in maritime history the French required assistance more than SAILING WITH CHARLIE HELP!BY JULIAN PUTLEY GRAPHICS BY HANNAH WELCH

24 ALLATSEA.NET SEPTEMBER 2014 Tips & Tricks If you have any kind of sailing boat the chances are that you have some sort of furling gear to ease the process of sail handling. Back in the days of hardy hirsute sailors one could argue the pros and cons of modern furling gear. But nowadays we increasingly “nd more votes for than against. So much so that almost all of us cruisers have at least the basics; a roller furling headstay. Its no longer a nice to have item, its on the must have list. KEEP ON ROLLINGBY SIM HOGGARTH EXTEND THE LIFE OF YOUR FURLING GEAR And one day it will need maintenance! There are many different manufacturers of these wonderful units but in my experience the one we see most often is the Profurl. Theyre widely available, robust, reliable, simple and competitively priced. There are umpteen variations of the Profurl headsail units depending on age, size and purpose, but they are all basically the same. My most recent project was to overhaul my inner staysail furler, which is a Starting on the drum assembly


SEPTEMBER 2014 ALLATSEA.NET 25 type N31 and probably over 20 years old. It had done pretty well already but I was hoping to extend its life. First and foremost (after removing the sail) you must make sure the mast is suf“ciently supported to allow the removal of the stay. Slacken the turnbuckle on the stay in question. If the turnbuckle isnt easy to access then you may have to slacken the backstay (and any other opposing stays). Its a good idea to mark the position of everything with electrical tape before Extracting stubborn circlips with seizing wire Nice and clean with new bearing in place


26 ALLATSEA.NET SEPTEMBER 2014 Tips & Tricks you start this slackening procedure to help when it comes to re-tightening. Its also a good idea to take lots of photos to help check everything is going back in the right place. Once the stay is loose, in our case the inner forestay, locate the grub screws which secure the aluminium foil extrusion. These are sometimes in, or part of, the drum or sometimes above it. Make sure you use the right size key. Once they are loose the foil will ”oat up and down on the stay a little. Next, unhook the lower support arms and remove the lower pin, the one with the two nyloc nuts. Completely unscrew the lower fork and turnbuckle from the stay. Now the lower unit should slide right off. Remove any sail feeder “ttings you may have still in place and the top unit should come off now too. Re“t the toggle and turnbuckle and quickly reassemble the forestay so that you can leave everything secure whilst you work on the furler. The following describes the procedure for the older N31 upper unit but all of the most frequently seen units follow a similar pattern. Its important to be careful not to damage anything as you dismantle the parts; a workbench, vice and the right tools will help. Starting from the top, pry out the old oil seal, generally an old screwdriver or some kind of hooking tool will pull them out. Clean out any old grease and debris with solvent or degreaser. Next comes the hard bit; there are two or three circlips, or snaprings, holding everything in place. These need to be removed without causing too much damage to the working surfaces. Despite having various circlip and long reach pliers, this part of the job proved to be the biggest challenge. The “rst clip eventually surrendered to a pair of modi“ed long reach pliers but the next one just wouldnt budge. I “nally managed to tease a length of monel seizing wire through one of the holes and carefully pulled it out with that. Once all the circlips are removed the inner part of the assembly can be pushed out, either with a big vice or press. Failing that, you might try a hammer, some hardwood blocks and a suitable drift. Next, turn it around and tap out the old bearing going the other way. Use a hammer and long steel punch, and be sure to keep it square in the bore all the way or it will jam up and damage the sides. Once the unit is in bits its important to examine closely all of the components and make an assessment of their condition. This will have a big effect on the longevity of your rebuilt unit. First check the condition of the grooves for the circlips. It is often wrongly assumed that the furler takes the load normally taken by the forestay. In the case of these Profurl units that is not the case. However, the upper and lower units do carry the full tension of the genoa luff and Pressing it back together Carefully fitting the last circlip


SEPTEMBER 2014 ALLATSEA.NET 27it bears directly on the rotating part of each one. So test “t all your new circlips before reassembly. Next, check the surfaces on the remainder of the inner tube, in particular where the seals will bear. They can become badly scratched when the circlips are removed. Dress them up if necessary. Reassembly is more or less a reversal of the above but with the following points to note: Fit the new bearing to the outer stationary part “rst, tapping gently on the outer part of the bearing only and being sure to keep it square and true all the way.

28 ALLATSEA.NET SEPTEMBER 2014 Fishing Two months. Four tournaments. Twelve days of sports “shing. This is the Bahamas Bill“sh Championship (BBC), the oldest bill“sh tournament series in the world. Yet it came down to the “nal “ve minutes of “shing for the team aboard Wave Paver Floridabased Jr Davis 61ft Garlington, to land the big win. In fact, Wave Paver s path to the podium was one big crescendo. We had a slow start in the “rst tournament,Ž says Davis. Wave Paver “nished 5th in the “rst leg Guana Cay Tournament in early May with only one white marlin release. In the second leg, the Green Turtle Cay Championship in late May, the team improved its placing to fourth with the release of one blue and two white marlin. The talent and luck kept building into the third leg, the Treasure Cay Championship in early June, where the release of three blue marlin earned the team a third. The real magic happened in the fourth and “nal leg in late June at the Marsh Harbour Championship. We needed a blue marlin release to get ahead of Marlin Darlin for the overall win,Ž Davis explains. We hooked up with only “ve minutes left. The release gave us a second place for this tournament and the bonus points that go with it. It was the combination of the two that moved us ahead.Ž The secret to the Wave Paver teams success? Getting lucky,Ž Davis answers. The “shing overall was slow in the Bahamas this year, so we really had to work on grinding it out to get the bites. The other advantage was “shing in all four series tournaments, thats what helped to give us our points.Ž The Wave Paver team collectively released six blue marlin, three white marlin and two sail“sh over the series. Davis personal catch for over half of the points earned him Top Angler. Davis has “shed the BBC every year since 2006 and his team “nished second overall in 2011. Wave Paver s crew, Capt. Russell Sinclair and mates Jerry Owens and Ryan House, received the Top Captain and Top Mate trophies. Bob Jacobsens team aboard his Marlin Darlin “nished second, while Frank Rodriguez Fa La Me ended third overall. All catches in the BBC are validated using time and date stamped digital images. Af“davits, signed by all participants on each team, further con“rmed that the “sh was released in accordance with International Game Fishing Association and BBC rules. This years series had some exciting moments right up to the end!Ž says new BBC president Jennifer Dudas. We also had a new location … Green Turtle Cay. The anglers that “shed were pleased with the marinas, the service and the food there. The dredging they did enabled our boats to get into the harbor with no depth problems at all.

The event was hosted out of Blue Haven Marina and Resort, an Island Global Yachting (IGY) destination, in Providenciales, Turks and Caicos Islands (TCI), July 3rd-7th 2014. Its really important to work as a team when bill“shing,Ž says Dieter Decker, a part-time TCI resident and owner/ angler of the winning 38ft Boston Whaler. Weve been together almost four years and its the second year for us “shing this tournament.Ž Over 30 “sherman on six boats got off to a slow start with no recorded bill“sh releases on day one. We went 20 to 25 miles offshore where we had two bites for the day,Ž explains Decker. They both pulled the hook. Two to three other anglers hooked up but no one was able to secure a release.Ž The tide of luck changed for Magic V on day two. After heading to the same “shing spot and getting hopes up on a nibble, angler Denardi Belliard released an estimated 300 to 350lb blue marlin after an hour-long “ght. No other bill“sh released by the tournament ”eet meant Magic V jumped into the lead. The game“sh and bill“sh bite picked up on the third and “nal day of “shing. Maid in Whales while not seeing any bill“sh, secured the Largest Tuna prize with a 36.5lb yellow“n. Magic V hooked up a tuna too that was soon eaten by a 15ft shark that required the crew cut the line. Meanwhile Amos Luker, angler aboard the 27ft Stapleton, After 5 later released his teams “rst blue marlin after a long battle. With no other marlin caught by lines out, it was Magic V that ultimately won based on time. We “sh for fun more than the competition,Ž says Decker. But when we enter a tournament, we go in to win!Ž Magic V s triumph earned them entry into the Offshore World Championship to be held in 2015 in Costa Rica. In addition, the Caicos Classic boasted over $13,000 in prizes donated by local businesses to help raise funds for The Edward C Gartland Youth Centre and The Bill“sh Foundation. New this year, the tournament committee eliminated the use of human observers in favor of the increasingly popular use of video or photos to capture releases. To ensure “sh were caught on the day in question, different colored armband/”ag combinations were assigned to each boat. The “sh, as well as the teams colored band or ”ag for the day were to be captured on camera with either the bimini at the rod-tip or the mate with a hand on the leader, signifying an of“cial release. Footage was reviewed by the committee at the end of each “shing day. Overall the bite was very slow, compared to previous years,Ž says Caicos Classic committee member Art Pickering. I have my hopes up for a better bite next year ƒ but thats “shing!Ž Carol M.

The Indigo team released three blue and one white marlin during the three day tournament. Indigo started the “nal day in the lead. A “sh came up on the right short, then left long rigger but never bit. Then, a few hours later, a call came over the radio that anglers Gabriel Abud and Oscar Faris aboard Casca Dura a Brazilianbased 80ft Merritt, released a double header white marlin. This gave Casca Dura the lead by 300 points. We needed a blue marlin and the 500 points for its release to regain the lead,Ž says Indigos Capt. Kevin Haddox. A white marlin wouldnt do, because that would have tied us on points, but Casca Dura would have won because they scored their points “rst.Ž Then, with a little more than an hour left in the tournament, Indigo angler Steve Shockley, from Colorado, hooked up a 300 to 400lb blue on the same Grander Custom Tackle-brand handmade lure on which he caught his “rst blue of the tournament three days prior. Twenty minutes later, Shockley released the “sh, the second blue marlin of his “shing career, to earn Indigo its Top Boat honors. Casca Dura “nished Second Top Boat. However, Abud earned Top Angler and had his name engraved on the prestigious Capt. Johnny Harms Give Him Line perpetual trophy, by being the angler to “rst release two blues and a white. My “sh came up on the right teaser and Oscars came up INDIGO TOP BOAT, CASCA DURA S ABUD TOP ANGLER on the left long one. It was one right after the other,Ž says Abud. We both released our “sh at about the same time.Ž Abuds white marlin release, combined with his two blue marlin releases the day before, tallied to his trophy-winning success. The team aboard Mixed Bag II a Luhrs 40 Open Express chartered by Capt. Robert Richards out of the Westin, St. John, earned Third Best Boat with the cumulative release of two blue and one white marlin caught by James Mac MacNeil. Captain Richards seven-year-old son Robbie was one of the registered anglers. Finally, 17-year-old Tristan Lambert, of Hillsboro Beach Inlet, Florida, angling aboard his fathers 80ft Merritt, Reel Tight released two blue marlin on the last day of “shing to land the Top Junior Angler trophy. Lambert caught and released both his blues on 50lb test line on stand-up gear rather than sitting in a “ghting chair, de“nitely a talent. Winners received exquisite hand-carved marlin head trophies by famous marine wildlife artist David A. Wirth. The eight-boat ”eet released a total of 16 marlin, 12 blue and four white.

Before I knew any better and still lived in the frozen north (called the Midwest), I owned a little trailerable Balboa 20. She was my “rst plastic boat and I wasnt impressed. Beating through Lake Michigans Death Door Passage one cold and blustery day, with the bottom ”exing half-a-foot as we fell off each wave, made me want something bigger and sturdier. Next, I bought a Rhodes 28 that was half full of water and had a spongy deck. It was simple to “x and I had some great sailing on her, but I decided it was time to do some real cruising and felt the need for something bigger. Along came a Morgan Out Island 33. Not the prettiest boat but nearly new and my mate at the time said it was the smallest boat she could live on. It was also the biggest one I could afford, so that was convenient and on that boat I “nally made my escape from the land of ice and snow. In Florida I fell in love with a little Mariner 31. Never mind that it had no engine or fuel tank and needed an entirely new deck. A few months of hard work and that boat brought us back north to Annapolis where two of my children were born. Now with a tiny baby, we somehow ended up with a bank repo Roberts 45 ketch that caused my mate to cry when she spent her “rst day alone aboard but, after two years of hard work, became quite valuable. I realized though that it would be years before I could afford to go cruising on it, so I sold it. There was a Westsail 32 that we “nished from a nearly bare hull and on which another child was born. Once again we sailed away from the cold and cruised to 19 countries with my troupe of little kids aboard. Returning from that trip, I sold the Westsail, which later went on to round Cape Horn and win one of the Bermuda races in her class. I now had a succession of boat dates: sailing dinghies, daysailers, small and large cruising boats; none of which I really bonded with. Then along came a Colin Archer Ketch. I bought her as a derelict in an industrial boatyard near Baltimore with vines growing over the rotting deck and bees living in the bowsprit. She was beautiful! I rebuilt her, sailed her to nine more countries and sold when it was time to go back to work.

She was followed by a fabulous 58ft schooner named Kai Kanani I sold her to downsize ahead of a world cruise but after buying and out“tting a Corbin 39, along came an English woman with four kids who wanted to go cruising too, so I sold that boat and bought a 64ft steel brigantine with room for all the children. We sailed the brigantine to 11 countries in the Caribbean and the Paci“c, but eventually the lady left and took my crew with her. Finally I meet a real sailor lady. By then, all the kids were grown and had jumped ship, so I sold the brigantine and bought a Westsail 42, however, my new lady just never bonded with it and it was sold.

38 ALLATSEA.NET SEPTEMBER 2014 Seamanship & Voyaging As a yachtsman there are some things you never forget: The day you buy your boat; the day you sell your boat; the most idyllic landfall; the quickest passage and the most terrifying experience. For many Caribbean sailors the latter would be living through Hurricane Hugo. On September 17th 1989 one of the most intense hurricanes for decades was building in the Atlantic Ocean and heading towards the Virgin Islands. I was in the last stages of installing a new exhaust system on my boat Starry Night a Tayana 37, tied up at Village Cay Marina in Road Town, Tortola. My girlfriend Monique kept reminding me it was time to leave and “nd a safe anchorage. Because of the lateness of our departure, we surmised that possible anchorages on Peter Island and Norman Island would be crowded but that Francis Bay on St John would be a good choice. By late afternoon we were passing Leinster Bay; the squalls from the outer bands were already coming at decreasing intervals. I nosed into the bay to have a look; there was a good spot in the southeast corner in about 10ft. We decided to grab it. We got four anchors down; two on each of two rodes in the shape of a Y. The rodes were well protected with rubber hoses at cha“ng points and were bitter ended at the mast. All sails were stowed below; the hank-on jib and staysail were easy. The dinghy with outboard I tied fore and aft along the port quarter in case we had to abandon the boat. Night was falling, the squalls and wind were increasing and we looked forward to a miserable night The local radio station in Tortola was audible; however, protected by high hills on three sides, we could receive nothing on the VHF. The wind and driving rain increased and around midnight the boat was getting slammed badly. It would slew to one side with gunwales in the water, take up and then slew to the other side. When the boat was knocked down on her starboard beam ends the dinghy was blown upside down into the cockpit and gas started leaking MEMORIES OF HURRICANE HUGO 25 YEARS ON BY JULIAN PUTLEY Starry Night before hurricane Hugo


SEPTEMBER 2014 ALLATSEA.NET 39out. The “rst time it happened I came up from below and threw it back in the water. The second time, I decided to tie it off the stern but after only minutes the painter was torn from the bow and it disappeared, cart-wheeling into the spume. During the early hours of the morning the shrieking wind was terrifying. Monique sat on the loo praying. (In a perceived evil in her life she prayed that if she was allowed to survive she would quit smoking … we survived, of course, and she hasnt smoked since). At one stage I heard an ominous clunk from the bow and crawled up there to take a look. A stainless steel cleat that held one of the anchor rodes had snapped off but luckily it jammed inside the bulwark. This slightly lengthened the rode, which fortunately altered a cha“ng point on the bobstay. I lengthened the rode on the other side too and crawled back to the cockpit and below. Monique had managed to make some hot tea. By this time the wind appeared to be shifting more southerly and we were well protected from this quarter … but still the shrieking winds continued. By about 6am dawn began to brighten the sky and we were able to see some of the damage. Several boats had parted from their ground tackle and fetched up on the southern shore … they all appeared to be abandoned. By mid morning we heard on the radio that the storm was off the eastern end of Puerto Rico and this was con“rmed by the wind direction, which was now tending south-southwest. At some stage during the night I had managed to get a piece of rigging wire jammed into my “nger and it was becoming swollen and infected. We found our dinghy up in the bushes; it was torn to shreds, the outboard ruined. We managed to get it ”oating and, with a salvaged paddle, brought it back to the boat. By afternoon the wind had subsided suf“ciently to get underway; I needed some antibiotics for my hand so we decided to make for Cruz Bay, St John where there was a clinic. It was closed so we tried Red Hook on St Thomas and there we saw the terrible destruction and devastation. Yachts were piled on top of each other on the beach at Muller Bay, many were sunk; one 40-footer had been ”ung onto the patio of a restaurant above the ferry dock. Hugo was a wake-up call. So many had underestimated the storm, made bad decisions on where to anchor and were unprepared. For our part we thanked our lucky stars because it was largely luck that had steered us to a safe anchorage.Lessons Learned:If a hurricane is forecast to travel from east to west (most do) and south of your position you need protection from the northeast, east, southeast and south. If the storm is forecast to travel north of your position you need protection from the north, northwest, west and southwest. The name Hugo will never be given to a hurricane again. Julian Putley is the author of  The Drinking Mans Guide to the BVI, Sunfun Calypso and Sunfun Gospel Hurricane Hugos sustained winds of 160mph made it brie”y a category 5 hurricane on the Saf“r Simpson scale, a catastrophic storm, as it approached the Lesser Antilles. It then maintained a category 4 status as it traversed south of the BVI. It made landfall on St Croix and Vieques, and the eye wall came close to Culebra causing devastation and the wrecking or sinking of over a hundred yachts in the anchorage of Ensenada Honda. Yachts that remained in Red Hook, St Thomas also suffered similarly. Both anchorages are exposed to the southeast with a long fetch. HUGO AFTERMATH

SEPTEMBER 2014 ALLATSEA.NET 49 Bahamas The Exuma Cays in the central Bahamas are some of the most beautiful islands you will come across. Not only are their beaches and anchorages picture-perfect but their people are friendly and welcoming. There are over 360 cays and islets that make up this chain covering over 100 miles of boundless blue sea. The islands are low-lying and made up of limestone and not volcanic lava as you might imagine. You will “nd soft white sand beaches; tall shady palm trees and lofty century plants growing amongst shrubs and cacti. Many plants and trees thrive despite only a thin soil over the limestone rock. But THE EXUMA ISLANDS its the water stretching for miles in its sublime aquamarines and shades of pastel blues that evoke feelings of awe. In an effort to protect some of this pristine beauty the Exumas Land and Sea Park was established. Set up to protect the diverse and rich marine life under the water as well as the endangered species above, the park is preserving the environment so future generations can enjoy it. The park encompasses 176 square miles; it covers a section of the Exumas that starts at Wax Cay Cut and runs 22-miles south to Conch Cut. Within the park boundaries a set of rules and regulations are in place to look after and protect the area.

On the windward side of the Exuma cays is Exuma Sound, a deep and wide body of water between Eleuthera and Cat Island. Here the seas can build up and caution should be taken when navigating the cuts between the islands. On the west side of the islands are the shallow banks and the generally more protected waters. Each Island has its own ”avour and points of interest. George Town, in Great Exuma, is the southernmost gathering point for many cruisers. Daily activities take place at Chat n Chill or Volley Ball Beach on Stocking Island. Paths have been cut across the narrow strip of land to the more rugged beaches on the windward side. Boats anchor in the popular Elizabeth Harbour off Hamburger Beach, Volley Ball Beach, Sand Dollar Beach on Stocking Island or off George Town on Great Exuma.

We had visited St. Maarten/St. Martin in 2011, staying four weeks instead of the planned two because of her charms, and we opted to visit St. Maarten once again before sailing to the Azores because we knew the island also offered excellent marine services, a population of experienced Atlantic voyagers, and good stores for provisioning. While we dont like to participate in rallies, I did want to meet and chat with others who were setting out in roughly the same direction at roughly the same time. We arrived in Philipsburg on April 23 to haul out at Bobbys Marina for the expected one week that lasted ten days. Haul STICKY SINT MAARTENBY BARBARA HART St. Maarten / St. Martin outs are like that. While we did have a few surprise projects, the delay was due more to our timing as we hauled out during the celebrations for both Carnival Day and Kings Day. Our real work began once we were at anchor in Simpson Bay, where we concentrated on crossing things off the numerous lists: Boat projects, spare parts, provisioning, stowage, and the inevitable (and often worse) Unexpected Projects. Things stored for short hops and life at anchor had to be repositioned in a better location or to make room for things that would be more important. We had to make a comfortable sea bunk for a long passage, instead of a make-do sea bunk previously used for four and “ve day cruises. Tools were moved to make room for canned goods, and toiletries were moved to make room for tools. As EW said, We will not be cruising, we will be voyaging. Theres a difference.Ž We know where we want to go but can we leave St. Maarten?

We wanted to leave St. Maarten in May and easily had enough work to “ll our days. That meant we would not be enjoying all the charms of the island; this time I could only watch with envy while others swam, kayaked, snorkeled, and hiked. At Bobbys Marina cruise ship passengers trouped by on their way to the beach and shops, and each day one of the men would engage EW as he worked on the prop or hull. The passenger would invariably express interest in our plans and envy of our lifestyle, but the wife would watch me clamber up a 14ft ladder with a bucket of water or groceries, and tug her spouse back to a cruise ship with all the amenities. Twice, while we were at anchor, EW chatted with Gary Seivert, a tourist from Buffalo who kayaked each day while his wife relaxed on the beach. I envied both of them as I poured through cruising cookbooks, vacuum packed coffee and oatmeal, cleaned, reorganized, sewed, and shopped. We had drinks with other cruisers and a few wonderful evenings with cruising friends from S/V Kookaburra who sailed over from St. Thomas for a last goodbye before they headed west to the San Blas Islands. Otherwise, we focused time and energy on preparing for the crossing. A number of boats left before we were ready, and then we and others waited for favorable weather while we crossed still more things off the lists. Finally, on May 26th we hauled anchor and left Simpson Bay, heading north for a circle route to the Azores. Forty-two days later, on July 7, we arrived in Horta.

Three days after our departure, our auto-pilot died. After a brief meeting in the cockpit, EW and I agreed that wed turn back to St. Maarten with “ngers crossed that wed be able to start out again within a week. We anchored in Simpson Bay on June 2nd and immediately began to dismantle the master stateroom so EW could access the auto pilot. With help from Brad, a sailing mechanic from S/V Quartette and Rusty, the hydraulic wizard from FKG Rigging, many hours of labor, a few cuss words, and money„always money, EW took care of the repairs whilst I replenished the provisions and made a few corrections on my projects. After all, one learns more about how things work at sea by going to sea. I bought a foam cover for the sea bunk and more “rmly attached the lee cloth to the bulkhead; I mended the jib; I “xed the netting in the galley cupboards; I kept busy. The repairs were completed on June 15. On June 16th we raised the anchor again and set out for the Azores. The real trip took 21 days, during which the auto pilot worked perfectly, as did all other things. We had light winds and drifted for the better part of two days, but we saw dolphins, whales, and a few cargo ships. We had plenty to eat, we slept well, we read, played guitar, wrote, laughed, talked, and took care of normal maintenance and cleaning. It was the nearly perfect crossing, from the sticky, nearly perfect, provisioning/ preparation headquarters that is the island of Sint Maarten. To follow Barbara and EWs adventures, visit: www.

Born in Rotterdam, in the Netherlands, Verbiesen and his brother helped their father to “nish the boat and the trio enjoyed short trips to the south of Holland and longer vacations when time permitted. He later served in the Dutch Army and earned his Green Beret, then had an opportunity to work on the Oosterschelde, one of the largest sea defense/ dike systems in the Netherlands. His jobs here ranged from rigging to boat handling. Afterwards, although Verbiesen liked sailing on big commercial vessels, he took the advice of his father to attend Dredge Master School. I am happy now that I listened to my father because dredging to me is more challenging than just running a boat from point A to point B,Ž he says. With dredging there was never a dull day. Plus, as a dredge master, I got to work all over the worldŽ After 16 years working as an expat Verbiesen decided to spend more time with family. His brother-in-law lived in Curaao and Verbiesen joined him to start a small yard. The two soon realized that the facility was too small for their goals, applied to the Dutch government for funding and started developing the new location, which is the present day Curaao Marine. In the last several years Curaao has proved a popular location during the Caribbeans hurricane season. We are below the hurricane belt with a dry climate. Its also safe here and there are good ”ight connections,Ž Verbiesen tells. We started with mostly sailing (cruising) yachts, but see more motoryachts from the islands and Venezuela now. More and more people are “nding us and this resulted in a full yard this year.Ž Curaao Marine is a storage and maintenance yard. Work here includes everything from the repair of wooden masts to the complete repair and renovation and repair of older yachts. New, is an on-site meeting place. The need for this grew out of the popularity of the free monthly BBQs Verbiesen has hosted for the yards customers. The new meeting place is “tted with a 70-inch screen Cable TV. Other new additions include a 60-ton boat trailer, a Facebook Page and regular newsletter. Curaao Marine cannot expand anymore in size, but we can update it and make it better for our customers,Ž says Verbiesen. Maybe later, if the government starts the GreenTown plan, we will be able to start a second marina and yard in Annabay, Willemstad.Ž Green Town Curaao in a sustainable, environmentallyfriendly initiative to replace the islands oil re“nery with a green city district around Willemstad harbor. In the meantime, what Verbiesen enjoys most during his time off is working on the repair and restoration of his 1965-built 65ft aluminum Long Range trawler which he bought four years ago. I didnt anticipate the time I could spend on it, but I do enjoy working on it. I am keeping the outside classic and will be making the inside like a modern day megayacht.Ž Carol M. Bareuther, RD, is a St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands based marine writer and registered dietitian.
