General meeting of the Comite de Liaison Economique (CLE):


An audit of the tourist industry


announced


WELCOME!

The Saint Barth Weekly
is happy to be back for
its third season. The
Weekly is designed for
you, to help you put your
finger on the pulse of the
local community.
Featuring an English
r6sum6 of the top stories
of our French newspaper
"Le Journal de Saint
Barth", as well as origi-
nal articles in English,
the Saint-Barth Weekly
is the only completely
English-language news-
paper on the island. It
comes out every Friday
from November through
the end of July. Our most
exciting news is that
each Friday, The Weekly
is also available on line
at Saint-Barth Online
(www.st-barths.com), the
wonderful web site that
our friends Laurence and
Peter O'Keefe created in
1996. Thanks to them,
you can now download
every edition of the
Saint-Barth Weekly, so
that no matter where you
are in the world, you can
stay in contact with the
island.


ean-Marc Gr6aux,
president of the
Comit6 de Liaison
Economique (CLE), a
non-profit association
combining the various
economic factors of the
island, announced on
Friday, March 10, dur-
ing the organization's
annual Jlccliri that
this June will see the
launching of a major
audit of the tourism
industry, the island's
major economic activi-
ty. Ipsos, the third
largest company world-
wide in terms of this
type of project, will most
likely conduct the audit.
The budget, estimated at
125,000 euros, will be
financed primarily by mem-
bers of the CLE, of which
there were 137 at the end of
2005. CLE is also counting
on participation from the
municipality, which it
counts as a partner in this
project. For Jean-Marc
Gr6aux, this audit consti-
tutes a "vast reflection on
the definition of the image
of St. Barth6lemy and its
promotion around the
world. It is a professional
tool that is of interest to all
the businesses as well as
political decision makers on
the island." It should also
serve as a blueprint for the
primarily development of a
marketing campaign."
The audit will take from six
to eight months. Its goal is
to determine the exact char-
acteristics of the tourists
who visit Saint Barth, the
type of information they
use to select Saint-Barth6le-

tary conditions. The
audit will be conducted
in three phases: the first
will be to question a
panel of tourists from
Europe, North and
South America, select-
ed by Ipsos, which has
access to millions of
names from around the
world. The second part
will be done on a local
basis, consisting of per-
sonal interviews with
hotel management and
villa rental agencies in
ux, president of order to get their opin-
son Economnique ions and ,I;'uLhl1 on the


my as a destination, the
variables that help them
make this decision, and
their actual perception of
the island and its image. It
will also help identify
important features that must
be preserved as well as
weaknesses that must be
improved in all areas: envi-
ronment, safety, hospitality,
1 'l'-ir. restaurants, train-
ing of personnel in contact
with the public, and sani-


evolution of tourism, as
well as their ideas for the
future. The third phase will
be the questioning of
tourists directly in Saint
Barth, during their stay on
the island. This will take
place at two different times,
in both high and low sea-
son, in order to best under-
stand the demographics of
the various types of visitors
that come to the island.

PAPAGUYO


A "Weekly" look at interesting
island residents and guests


ormer drummer for
Sly and the Family
Stone. Percussionist
for a funk band, Days of
Wild, in New York. A
")1' '" on the beach in
Saint Barth: one man, one
name: Papaguyo. "I am in
Saint Barth to create a new
vibe for a new CD," he
says. "It's better than stay-
ing locked up in a studio
all day. We get to play in
front of a live audience
while we are creating."
This winter, his fifth on
the island, Papaguyo has
been making a new kind of
music with his guitarist
John Fritz, and newcomer
Michael Kott on electric
cello; the threesome play-
ing informally as The
Gypsy's. Then the popular
singer, Tanya, comes back


and the vibe shifts to
"Yazmin," the name of the
original singer in that par-
ticular band. But the heart
and soul of all this is
Papaguyo himself, an
American musician whose
father was a music teacher.
"It's in my blood," he
says. "When I was about
four years old, my father
woke me up to watch The
Beatles on the Ed Sullivan
show. It was unbelievable.
I saw Ringo on the drums
and knew I wanted to do
that." Today he has moved
away from traditional
drumming to embrace a
wide variety of unusual
percussion instruments
that he has collected or
that people bring him from
around the world, from a
chopstick to a rain stick,

things found in Tibet,
Africa, and even the Saint
Martin airport. Barefoot,
wearing sunglasses on
stage at night, this dude is
cool, cooler than his New
York incarnation that
thrives in the hectic music
scene. "Our experience on
the island energizes us for
when we return to New
York," he says. What
makes all this possible is
Thierry Badereau at La
Plage, the beachfront
restaurant in St Jean,
where Papaguyo hangs his
hat during his stay on the
island. "Thierry was nice
enough to give us a place
to experiment," he says,
pointing out that this is not
a gig, but more like a
workshop to make new
sounds, and a place to play
with people from around


the world as well as
islanders who sit in and
add their flavor. The expe-
rience at La Plage has
brought change to all these
musicians, including John
Fritz, who has a mini
recording studio in his
hotel room, and has started
playing classical acoustic
guitar as well as electric,
and Tanya, who now lives
in Paris. Papaguyo has put
down the drumstick for
that chopstick and that rain
stick, and spends his days
listening to their music
with headphones on the
beach, taking notes for the
new CD. "In St. Barth, we
are recreating everything,"
says Papaguyo. "We are
really unplugged."

11 th annual Saint Barth Bucket

Largest number of boats in the fleet


They are the world's
largest sailboats:
sleek and elegant
with decks of polished
wood and towering masts.
Magnificent with their sails
unfurled and simply
breathtaking with their
spinnakers to the wind,
these giants of the sea will
invade the Port of Gus-
tavia, as they arrive next
week for the Ilth annual
Saint Barth Bucket. For the
second time, the race will
take place over three days,
from Friday, March 31
through Sunday, April 2.
The Caribbean version of
"Newport Bucket," which

the Saint Barth Bucket is
one of the informal meet-

these fabulous single hull Concarneau, in Brittany,
sailboats. With the Transat the Bucket is one of the

the most prestigious in the
world. In fact, to date the
LLE only race to have more
boats of this size was the
Millennium Cup held in
2000 in New Zealand.
To make room for the fabu-
SION lous fleet of the "Bucket,"
the Port of Gustavia, work-
ing in close collaboration
with the Saint Barth Yacht

Antoine Questel: champion windsurfer

seeks sponsors to succeed


Victim of his own
success. That's the
current problem for
Antoine Questel. Junior
French Champion (2001)
Champion Espoir (2002),
third place in the seniors
category in 2004 & 2005.
For mots of us Antoine
Questel seems to have all:
titles, championships,
sponsors. Yet that is not
exactly the case. A member
of the Saint Barth Yacht
Club since the age of 11,
Questel competes under the
colors of Saint Barth in all
of the competitions he
enters, but needs sponsor-
ship money in order to
keep climbing the ladder of
success. At the moment, it
looks as if he could be
asked to join the French
national wind surfing team,
which will be rebuilt with
new members following a
revitalization of the sport.
While it is not yet decided
what role windsurfing will
play in the next summer
Olympic Games in 2008, it
is clear that Antoine Ques-
tel will be at the top of his
sport. Currently seeded in
third place in France, he
has integrated recently
approached by Stephane
Krause, trainer at the
National Sailing School in
Quiberon, who does not
hide his intention to trans-
form the racing section of
the national sailing school
into the training ground for
the French national team.
"In the French "top ten," at
least five of us are under 21
years old. Stephane Krause
asked us to take part in an
intensive three-week train-
ing session paid for by the
French National Sailing


School and the French Sail-
ing Federation. That's fan-
tastic: it gives us the
chance to get in shape just
before the season that runs
from March through
December," says Questel.
Stephane Krause is not the
only one interested in our
local champion. The city of
La Rochelle, the mecca for
sailing and windsurfing in
France, where Antoine has
lived for the past three

with a prize purse of 1500
euros. With the blessing of
my sponsor, AHD, I also
sold some boards they had
given me. And of course
my mother always helps
me." In 2005, in order to
participate in the 15 com-
petitions he has marked on
his calendar, including the
Formula World Windsurf-
ing Championships in Aus-
tralia next December, he
will need 30,000 euros. Get

Antoine is just 20 and still
young. Take a look at the
current French champion,
Antoine Elbeau, who par-
ticipated in an AHD event
with "our" Antoine last
summer in Tunisia. Elbeau
e is 32 years old, which
means that our young
champion still has plenty of
time to realize his dreams.
For now, Antoine Questel,
who spent the winter break
on his native island, has

Club. He would like to thank all those who support his activities throughout the year.


years for obvious reasons,
is also showing interest.
Antoine, who hopes to con-
tinue to compete for Saint-
Barth, realizes that he has
reached a crossroads: "to
join the French national
team, I will have to train
harder and compete more,"
he says. But that has a
price. In 2004, his cost of
entering competitions, trav-
el, and living expenses was
15,000 euros. "The munici-
pality donated 2000 euros,
and the Conseil General the
same amount. I won a com-
petition in Saint-Martin


a job? Impossible for a top-
level athlete if he hopes to
stay at the top. That is the
plight of Antoine Questel
and the reason we must
join forces and support
him, so that he can realize
his dream, a dream we
share with him: that of see-
ing a young man from the
island, for the first time in
any sport, join a French
National Team, the only
door into the Olympic
Games, where Antoine
Questel sincerely hopes to
compete one day. 2008 is
the perfect time. But


returned to France, as his
wind-surfing season is
about to start up again. He
first heads back to the
national sailing school in
Quiberon for some inten-
sive training before com-
peting in the first legs of
the Coupe de France in late
April, in Hybres, in the
South of France. All finan-
cial contributions are wel-
come (as he has to balance
his budget), and can be
addressed to the Saint-
Barth Yacht Club, attention

Decorating the traffic circle:

major crossroads for
the island, the traffic
circle at La Tour-
mente- the only traffic cir-
cle in Saint Barth- was
built in 2002 and its design
should include some mean-
ingful artwork. The munici-
pality was aware of this
need, and in 2004 held a
competition, open to all res-
idents of the island. 53 proj-
ects were submitted and
subject to intense considera-
tion. In June 2005, the jury
finally decided on the proj-
ect proposed by Guillaume
Blanchard that is called,
"the soul of Saint Barth."
Standing on a base that rep-
resents Saint Barth, with an
iguana and a pelican at his
feet, the proud Arawak Indi-


an sculpture has a storng
symbolic meaning for its
creator: "the Arawaks, our
forgotten ancestors, have
never been properly hon-

Jean, and even more specifi-
cally near the airport and La
Tourmente that the largest
number of their vestiges
have been found. I -i'. 'ugil
it was proper to pay tribute
to them in this exact spot,"
explains the designer of the
sculpture, which is being
realized by artist Xavier
Bonpunt, who had also sub-
il'ii'iI two projects for the
competition. Based on Guil-
laume Blanchard's designs,
Bonpunt is bringing the
statue to life, as it were,
working in a studio not far
from the churchyard in Gus-
tavia. A metal mold follow-
ing the anatomy of the
sculpture was filled by
Polystyrene, as it is a light
material, then covered with
plaster. Less athletic than
the original design, the
Arawak by Xavier Bonpunt
is even more like the


Amerindians who were the
original inhabitants of the
island and whose early
traces date back to the pre-
Colombian era (2500 BC).
At 1.7 meters tall, the
Arawak has his head turned
toward the hill overlooking
the airport, one of the most
important Arawak sites on
the island. "As if he were
calling his friends with this
conch shell," imagines
Xavier. The pelican that sits
on the past of the base fac-
ing Colombier is finished
and the iguana that accom-
panies the figure is under
completion. The three
molds when finished will be
sent to Saint Martin where
they will be covered with
bronze then soldered togeth-
er. The goal is to have the
Awarak in place by next
August 24, the feast of St.
Barthelemy day.

SAINT-MARTIN
Three wind generators of 850
kilowatts, standing 65 meters
high, and equipped with three
blades each 28 meters long, will
allow the neighboring island of Saint
Martin, with the help of the tropical
winds, to generate 10% of the electric
power needed for the island. When?
Next year. Where? At Red Rock, on a
hill overlooking Anse Marcel and
Cul-de-Sac, facing the Atlantic
Ocean. Amram, the folks behind this
project, have signed a contract wih
the EDF (the French electric compa-
ny) obliging them to purchase the
electricity produced by the wind gen-
erators for at least 15 months, at a
pre-determined price. The goal of the
project is part of France's overall plan
to lower its nuclear energy production
in exchange for more sustainable
energy. Would Saint Barth ever con-
sider wind generators as a power
provider?

painter since the age 13th.,
doing scene of the 20'; her
style is very distinctive with a cer-
tain texture on the canvas due to her
technique with the palette knife who
gives a lot of movement in her
subjects.
Then since 12 years now, she get into
the marble, studied and creating part
of the year in Tuscany, Carrara,
where the most famous contempo-
rary sculptors are. From a solid and


heavy block of marble, she gives
such a passion that it attracts the
touch and the curves! Her subjects
are the famous fruits in marble and
bronze, then since a few years she
does as well animals and other
things. That is such a real talent to
work a material so hard and make it
so soft at the looking!

* Horoscope
ARIES (March 21- April 19): Don't
press your luck with your loved
ones. You are best to stick to
yourself this week. Try to be
precise in your communications.
Travel may change your attitu-
des with regard to your philoso-
phy. Your lucky day this week
will be Friday.

TAURUS (Apr. 21- may 21): You
are best to stick to yourself this
week. Do not yield to children or
relatives when they really don't
deserve it. Be tolerant, but don't
let any one take you for granted.
Lack of funds may add stress to
your already uncertain situation.

GEMINI (May 22-June 21): If you
keep busy you won't feel the per-
sonal pressures you are going
through. Travel opportunities
must be taken advantage of.
Your ability to talk circles
around your colleagues will help
you forge ahead in the work-
force. Pleasure trips should be
on your agenda.

CANCER (June 22-July 22) : You
can elaborate on your creative
ideas and get involved in groups
that relate to the arts. You may
find that your generosity has
been taken for granted. Not eve-
ryone will be pleased with your
plans. Try to channel your
energy into physical work.

LEO (July 23-Aug 22) : Secret
affairs will eventually backfire
on you. You should consider
submitting some of your written
work for publication. A new you
could help your attitude. Take
matters in hand when it comes to
dealing with clients or collea-
gues.

VIRGO (Aug. 23 -Sept. 23): Get the
whole family involved in a
worthwhile cause or cultural
event. Concentrate on spending
quality time with children. Don't
do something silly just to get
back at your mate. Opportunities
to get together with people in
powerful positions could help
you get ahead.

LIBRA (Sept. 24 -Oct. 23) : This
will not be the day to lend
money to friends or family.
Exhaustion combined with ove-
rindulgence could result in
minor health problems. Try to


communicate if you wish to
help. Travel could include delays
and other minor problems.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24 Nov. 22): You
can open up to your mate and let
them know what you expect out
of this relationship. Do not jump
to conclusions concerning your
romantic partner. Have some
fun, but draw the line if someone
tries to fast talk their way into
your heart. You would be wise to
socialize with as many people as
possible. Your lucky day this
week will be Sunday.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23 -Dec. 21):
You may find that someone you
live with is not too happy, but
you can't really do anything
about that right now. Travel will
enhance romance and adventure.
Romance can surface if you get
into some of those fitness pro-
grams you've been putting off.
Your outgoing nature might
work against you this week.
Your lucky day this week will be
Sunday.

CAPRICORN (Dec 22.- Jan. 20):
You may have difficulties while
traveling or problems dealing
with close friends or relatives.
Difficulties with children will
surface if you try to break a pro-
mise you made. Physical limita-
tions are possible if you aren't
careful. Don't be afraid of oppo-
sition; your suggestions are
valid. Your lucky day this week
will be Friday.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 21 -Feb. 19) :
There may be opportunities to
attend social functions that are
linked to work. Problems with
your boss could lead to unem-
ployment. Don't let friends or
relatives make you feel guilty if
you're not able to attend one of
their affairs. Take a trip or just
spend some quality time with
your mate. Your lucky day this
week will be Saturday.

PISCES (Feb. 20 March 20) :
Limitations at work might set
you back. Underhandedness will
affect your reputation. Children
may be less than honest with
you. You may blow situations
out of proportion when dealing
with the one you love. Your
lucky day this week will be
Tuesday.

inherited the passion for
watches and watchmak- 4
ng from my ancestors,
the French Emperor
Napoleon I, and his brother
J6rome, King of Westphalia,
of whom I am a direct
descendant. Our entire fam-
ily collected timepieces -
not only the Emperor him-
self collected watches, but
so did his brothers and also
his sisters, including Caro-
line Murat, an unbelievably
keen collector, who more-
over ordered the world's
first wristwatch to be made
for herself.
I have literally been taken
over by this passion for
watches and watchmaking.
I am still amazed by this art
of the infinitely small parts
which create the mechanism
of movement, entranced by

inventive
geniuses
who con-
stantly
test and
surpass
the tech-
nical lim-
its to bet-
ter record
the time
that goes
by. I am
fascinated by the slow and
painstaking manner in
which the watchmaker car-
ingly manufactures his
timepiece which through
applied science and infinite
patience becomes an exten-
sion of himself, and a cre-
ation in itself.
In this totally exclusive
world of fine luxury watch-
making, it was my intention
to bring together the very
best craftsmen of our time.
These master watch and dial
makers reproduce ancestral
craftsmanship and know-
how, a heritage of ines-
timable value t!.rmiiiilld to
them by their elders. They
know just how to add a
spark of creative genius to
this precious personal her-
itage. Day after day, this
shared passion enables them
to create "the exceptional"
timepiece TheDewitt
watches manufactured at
our workshops in


\Vilducuvres
(Geneva, Switzerland).
Our search for absolute per-
fection is never ending. It
resides in the heart of all our
creations, pushing back
unceasingly the frontiers of
the possible to astound, sur-
prise, and astonish those
collectors and devotees of
the DeWitt brand who do us
the kindness of being our
customers.
For the men among them,
we have designed the Tour-
billon Diff6rentiel Acade-
mia with its patented Differ-
ential System. This piece,
available in a limited series,
combines technological
innovation applied to the
winding system of the pow-
er reserve with an all-new
presentation of the Acade-
mia case, in a splendid tita-
nium, red gold, and rubber
finish.
For the women among
them, we have produced the
first DeWitt "Ladies" col-
lection. A sensuously femi-
nine collection featuring a
cambered, oval-shaped
case, its middle section
engraved with the famous
stylized "Imperial
Columns," available in two
lines, Alma and Alma
Utopia, with its "captivat-
ing" patented complication.
