11TH EDITION OF THE SAINT BARTH BUCKET

NO WIND, NO WINNER

They were all ready to go. Thirty
sailboats: from the smallest,
Mariella at 80' to the largest,
Parsifal III at 178'. All ready to try and
get their name inscribed on the "Buck-
et" that serves as the winner's trophy
for the Saint Barth Bucket, and infor-
mal regatta that brings together some
of the world's most beautiful, and
largest sailboats. Only one was miss-
ing, Eole, a god of the winds, who was
absent from the llth edition of the
Bucket, which saw all three races can-
celled due to a lack of wind. In fact,
the light winds meant that none of the
boats actually crossed the finish line.
As a result, the Ilth edition of the
Saint Barth Bucket will go done in the
annals of the race as the one without a
winner. The first time this has hap-
pened in the history of the Bucket!
Briefing, petitfours
and champagne!
The Bucket got underway last Thurs-
day evening with the traditional skip-
pers' briefing on the yacht, Altitude,
anchored at the dock by the Wall
House. Owners and skippers were
welcomed by the race committee
including Melanie Smith and her staff,
Hank Halsted, Tim Laughridge, and
Ian Craddock, who organize the event
along with the Saint-Barth Yacht Club,
and in close collaboration with the
municipality of Saint Barthl6emy and
the Port of Gustavia. The briefing was
followed by a cocktail reception open
to the public on the main dock.
Late start, race cancelled
Friday jii 'IIin .-. 10:00am: each of the
30 boats entered in the race of
which four were actually under 100',
Mariella, Boo Too, Metolius, and
Symetry had a crew of 15 to 20
aboard as they headed out toward the
starting line to hoist their sails and fin-
ish any last minute preparations before
the first regatta, traditionally a sail
around the island. Out by the little
islands off the coast of Corossol, the
race .' iiii'iiicc was aboard the yacht,
Sovereign, and ready to start the race
as planned at 11:00am. The wind,
which had been light since early morn-
ing, got even lighter and barely regis-


tered three knots. Not enough to navi-
gate! The wait was long, the sun hot,
and the situation did not improve. By
12:00 noon, the race committee and
the organizers decided to cancel the
first regatta, to the dismay of all
aboard the various boats as they
returned to the dock.
Starts but no finishes
Saturday morning: a S. 'uli'c.,I\ wind
blew up to nine knots at the break of
day. Navigators and organizers were
once again hopeful that they could
race. The itinerary of the second regat-
ta is in the form of an Olympic triangle
around the small islands of Boulanger,
Pel6, Fr6gate, Bonhomme, and
Fourchue, with the starting and finish
lines between the committee boat and
gros ilets. At 11:00am, the first sail-
boat, Ohana, left the starting line, with
staggered starts continuing until
1:18pm when Visione was the final
boat to set sail. With spinnakers
unfurled, the boats navigated at mod-
erate speed on flat seas. As they came
past Fr6gate, many of the boats had to
tack due to the S 'ull "..cs wind. The
descent from Fr6gate toward Fourchue
was spectacular, with the sailboats side
by side with their multi-colored spin-
nakers full of wind. A large cloud
moving from West to East brought
rain, and some stronger wind but it
only lasted a few minutes. After the
showers, the wind calmed down defin-
itively and the same ordeal started
again for the boats in the race: hours of
waiting for the wind that never reap-
peared. At 4:00pm, the !.!iniIto put
an end to the torture, and announced
that to all boats that unless the condi-
tions improved in the next 30 minutes,
the race would be suspended. Which is
what happened. More fun was had on
the dock as the night fell and a crowd
gathered to admire the boats and dance
to the music of RMI.
Sunday, race shortened
and finally cancelled
The weather forecast was no b1ciie on
Sunday than the other days of the
regatta. The wind, still blowing from
the S '.uliIC'.,l. was still very light. The
boats played along: after all it was the


last day of the race. At 1,1 'i n. the
committee announced that the first
start, planned for 11:00am was
delayed. The race was finally short-
ened, with a new Sunday itinerary
leaving from the islands off of
Corossol in the direction of the islets
of "la Poule" and "les I'. .uL\\," and
back again. With spinnakers half full,
the boats moved at the speed of snails.
After 90 minutes on the water, the
organizers announced that once again,
due to the lack of wind, the race was
once again cancelled. As they say in
French: "never two without three."
But to finish on a happier note, most
of the boats headed to the bay of
Colombier for a picnic, and to give the
sailors a chance to recover from their
disappointment at the lack of wind.
The awards ceremony planned on the
Quai G6n6ral de Gaulle Sunday
evening was replaced by a different
kind of event, mostly thanking those
who took part. Since there was no win-
ner, this year's Bucket was dedicated to
Tommy Taylor, co-founder of the Nan-
tucket Bucket and owner of Avalon,
who was tragically killed in a snowmo-
bile accident in mid-February. After the
dedication, the race organizers preced-
ed to give out four prizes based on the
best starts. Antara took the first prize,
Altair the second, and Visione the third.
The can of snails, usually given to the
slowest boat, was given this year to the
race itself! The doyenne of the race,
Grandma Betty aboard Perseus, was
given the Huismann trophy. The Spirit
of the Bucket prize, given Churchill
Yachts, went to Antara, which also won
the prize given by Perini Navi ship-
yard. The crew of Endeavour was
named as the best crew. Mayor Bruno
Magras gave the medal of Saint Barth
to each winner as usual. The party end-
ed with a cocktail reception and the
projection of photos and videos of the
race shown on a large screen.












La Bouillabaisse Marseille:

La Bouillabaisse, the most typical dish of Marseille, was originally
a fisherman's dish. While sorting out the fish intended to be sold
they used to put aside certain species which they would then
prepare for their families and themselves. It is a very simple family
dish which has evolved over the years.

Today there is a Bouillabaisse Chart that includes precise
ingredients which are important to maintain tradition
while respecting the culinary art of the Chef.

La Bouillabaisse Marseille must consist of at least 4 types
of Mediterranean rock fishes: scorpion fish, white scorpion fish,
red mullet, skate, conger eel, john Dory, cigale de Mer (Mediterranean
crustacean resembling a lobster) or spiny lobster.

The Bouillabaisse is served in two servings, the fresh fish soup
and the whole cooked fish.
There is, however, one fundamental rule: the fish must be cut up in
front of the guests. La Rouille, which is a typical sauce, accompanied
with croutons to be served both with the soup and the fish.

You can enjoy la Bouillabaisse Marseille at Restaurant des Pbcheurs
where traditional Marseille Bouillabaisse is served for lunch and
dinner each friday.

Le Tenace on a surveillance mission


e Tenace, a high-seas
tugboat from the
French Navy usually
based in Brest (France), is
in the West Indies for a
three-month mission, and is
plying the waters of the
Northern Islands, at the
request of the regional mar-
itime affairs director, Denis
Mehnert. He was in Saint
Barth last Monday, at
which time he helped with
control operations in the
waters of the Marine Park:
"Twice a year, as reinforce-
ment to actions in the
waters of the West Indies,
the Navy sends one of its
boats that are based in
Brest," explained Denis
Mehnert. "Concerning Le
Tenace, in addition to sur-

gration, and the fight
against drug traffic, we

COMAR (Marine Com-

is the case of Saint Martin,

during which Le Tenace
will offer its aid. Huet also
met with the staff of the
Marine Park, and met with
the Mayor, as well as the
French captain of the cruise
ship, Le Levant, which
pulled into Saint Barth last
Monday.
Le Tenace left Brest on
February 27 and arrived in
Fort-de-France in Mar-
tinique -its home base
during its stay in the
Antilles on March 18.
Its arrival caused quite a
stir as it escorted a cargo
ship 318' long that was fly-
ing a Panamanian flag,
aboard which 1.5 tons of
pure cocaine (hidden in the
structure of the boat) had
been found two weeks ear-
lier, on March 3. Called
"Master Endeavour," the
ship had been captured a
few days earlier by French
marine commandos in the
waters off Cape Verde,

In Saint-Barth, where the
draft is just a shallow six

not tie up at the dock and
remained anchored in the
outer harbor. Its command-
er for the past two years,
Pascal Huet, helped the
director of maritime affairs
with the organization of the


approximately 1,300 kilo-
meters west of Dakar.
Accompanied at first by the
tugboat, Rari, and then by
the frigate, Germinal, the
cargo ship was finally
escorted by Le Tenace as
far as Fort-de-France, the
closest French port to the
place the ship was seized.

Weather Report for March :
Hotter than Usual

Dryness reigns

in a hotter month

than normal

Every month we present a recap of the local
weather, written by Ren6 Fury, director of the
French weather service's local bureau, Espace
M6teo Caraibes.

STemperature
o The average maximum temperature
So0o for March hit 85F rather than the
/ normal average of 83.4F. The
nighttime lows were also higher
than average, at 74.60F rather than
73.2F. The lowest temperature was recorded on
March 15 at 70.70F and the highest on March 9, at
89.2F, within the average for the season.
The humidity was also within normal range, between
56 and 84% as average for the month, in spite of a
particularly humid period from March 27 to 30.
The ocean temperature a little under 78.8F at the
beginning of the month- was rapidly heating up,
already reaching 80.6F by the end of the month.

Rainfall
With 10mm (0.4") of rain recorded
during the month, compared to an
average of 38mm (1.5"), the
month of March was unusually
dry. But added to the rain that has
fallen since the beginning of the year, a total of
142mm (5.6"), the rare drops that fell in March have
not changed the fact that 2006 remains a normal year
on the rainfall charts. The dryness on the island is
nothing compared to that of 1968, 1977, or 1959.

Wind
The wind from the East-Northeast
was moderate at the beginning of
the month with gusts up to 70km/h
on March 11. The wind subsided
toward the end of the month, and shifted to a
S 'ul!C.iiC.'!li orientation.

Weather forecast
The forecast for the beginning of April may call for a
little rain, perhaps in the middle of the week. The fore-
cast for May, June, and July look as if they will be
normal in terms of temperature and rainfall.

Saint Barth Marine
Park, Jean Paul
Vernoux recently discussed
the problem of ciguatera
(fish p.'i ..v!ii!i._. during a
conference held at the
M6t6o Caraibe offices near
Gustavia. He explained that

and the Bahamas, was
among the West Indian

lem since the 16th century,
the cause of ciguatera was
unknown until just recently.
In fact, it was in 1977, when
there was a bout of the dis-
ease in the Polynesian
archipelago that two
researchers discovered the
role played by "Gam-
bierdiscus t.I '._. uI (a living
microscopic organism that
thrives on dead coral and is
found in certain algae) in
the development of the dis-
ease. The means of contam-

is concentrated in the tissue
of herbivore fish that feed
on contaminated algae, then
the poison is t.l!i!M. illId to
