Banque Populaire Wins The Amigo Challenge


Alain Haillant, president and founder of Dauphin Telecom, and Philippe
Morel, sales and min ,1, i in director, pi u;is. ; first prize in the Amigo
( /I,/iL ,it, to the winners, Banque Populaire,
with skipper Jeanne Gregoire and Gerald Veniard, and their guests.


T he Amigo Challenge, the epi-
logue to the Transat ag2r, was
held on Thursday, May 4, with
the Figaro Banque Populaire taking
first place, with skipper Jeanne Gre-
goire and Gerald Veniard, who took
third place in the Transat ag2r, a
transatlantic race from Concarneau to
Saint-Barth, arriving after 19 days, 23
hours, 15 minutes, and 55 seconds at
sea. The Amigo Challenge, sponsored
by the new cell phone network, Ami-
go, launched by Dauphin Telephone,
was cut short due to dubious weather
conditions- heavy rain and weak
winds of just three to five knots.
Scheduled as an around the island
regatta, the itinerary was reduced to
four miles, a round-trip from Gus-


tavia to the Amigo buoy in the bay at
Salines, and back the finish line in
Gustavia. Brit'Air (Armel Le
Cleach/Nicolas Troussel) was the first
boat to pass the next to last buoy of
the Amigo Challenge, but were nosed
out of first place right before the fin-
ish line by Banque Populaire, whose
passengers for the day were Jacque-
line Tabarly (widow of the acclaimed
sailor, Eric Tabarly) and Jean-Jacques
Pequeur (administrator of the ag2r).
Brit'Air finished second, in front of
Delta Dore (Jeremie Beyou and Vin-
cent Riou).
The award ceremony- including the
first place trophy of carved wooden
dolphins- and prizes for all partici-
pants, was held immediately after the


race. Alain Haillant, president and
founder of Dauphin Telecom, and
Philippe Morel, sales and marketing
director, presented the prizes.

61st Commemoration

of 1945 Victory
II of five years of war. It was
also the opportunity for the
mayor to explain the island's
,I commitment to this com-
memoration: "With more
than 60 men who were
mobilized and sent to Fort
Richpanse in Basse-Terre,
awaiting shipment to France,
how could the island of
Saint-Barthelemy forget
those who fought alongside
the leaders of the country, in
the name of the entire popu-
lation, and suffered the hor-
rors of war, beyond all

14 KILOS OF COCAINE FOUND

OFF THE COAST OF SAINT BARTH


Sailor who was
navigating off the
coast of Saint
Barthelemy pulled a large
package of cocaine out of
the water. This event took
place in mid-April, accord-
ing to the national police,
who seized the 14 kilos of
cocaine in question. The


substance was divided into
packets of two kilos each
and was said to be of very
high quality. Additional
bundles of 20 kilos each
were found off the coast of
Guadeloupe, and the police
have not dismissed the pos-
sibility that both packages
were part of the same


delivery.
The discovery of these ille-
gal shipments, at sea by
sailors, or by those walking
on the beach, is fairly fre-
quent in this area of the
West Indies, a relay zone
that is popular with drug
traffickers based in Latin
America.


Police blotter

PETTY THEFTS
MORE NUMEROUS...
During the night of
May 4 to 5, the cloth
top of a Samurai was
stolen from the car
while it was parked in
front of the Tom Beach
hotel. The next day, the
night of Saturday to
Sunday, a bag contain-
ing two cell phones, a
Visa card, and identity
papers, was stolen in a
nightclub. Then on
Sunday, in broad day-
light, a couple of
tourists were robbed of
their suitcase contain-
ing personal effects,
eye glasses, and identi-
ty papers, from their
car parking in the lot at
their hotel. The same
day, in Gustavia, a
minor stole a rental
scooter and took off
with one of his friends,
only to abandon the
scooter near the fish
market. Identified by a
witness, the thief was
questioned and will
appear before the juve-
nile court.


MORE NEWS
FROM
HEADQUARTERS...
The police report indi-
cates numerous tickets
for illegal parking, as
well as tickets for bald
tires and driving under
the influence. Five
people were stopped
for not wearing hel-
mets while driving
scooters or motorcy-
cles, and one for not
wearing a seatbelt,
which resulted in a fine
of 90 euros.

APRIL 2006:
HOTTER THAN USUAL
The monthly weather recap by Rene Fury, director of
Espace Meteo Caraibe, Meteo France, Gustavia
Temperature
With an average temperature of
7, 81.50F, the month of April 2006 was a
1/ hot month, 0.330F hotter than nor-
s \ mal. The daytime average tempera-
ture of 870F was higher than expect-
ed, as was the lowest nighttime temperature of 76.20F.
The average temperature for the month was the same as
that of the ocean, 81.50F by the end of April.
Extreme monthly temperatures: a low of 72.50F on
April 14; a high of 910F on April 27.
Wind
The wind came mostly from the
North-East in early April, then shifted
to the South-East. The strongest gusts
were barely 60 km/h.
Rain
While the average rainfall for April is
1.9", this year saw just 0.98". The
island did not experience the heavy
rains usually associated with the
month of April.
Since the beginning of 2006, there has been 6.5" of
rain, a little less than average.
Three-month forecast
Weather models for the next three months are not call-
ing for anything out of the ordinary in terms of tempera-
ture. Rain over the Northern Islands is tied a system
over the island of Hispanola. An active hurricane season
is expected due to high ocean temperatures and the
absence of the "El Nino" phenomenon.

was of great use to the
the competitors: each car
had a "hotline" to a base
station where net surfers
could look up informa-
tion and help answer dif-
ferent questions in the
rally. There were also
various sports activities
to complete such as scu-
ba diving, kayak, rock
climbing with ropes, dirt
bikes, etc. Since it was
also International Book
Day, the final test was a
dictation. The rally ended
with the traditional
luncheon at the Rivage
restaurant, whom the
Rotary would like to
thank for its support of
the event.


unday, April 23
was the date for the
fifth annual inter-
company rally organized
by the Rotary Club, and
whose profits will go
toward the training of a
local member of the Red
Cross. Fifty people took
part in this around the
island chase for cars, and
information- a quiz
based on questions about
the history of the island
and its environment was
an essential part of the
rally. Zooming about in
ten vehicles, the partici-
pants crisscrossed the
island in search of clues
and riddles. New this
year: the Internet played
its role in the game, and
