Two Of The World's Largest

Private Boats In Saint Barth


WELCOME!
The Saint Barth Weekly is
happy to be back for its
fourth season. The Weekly
is designed for you, to help
you put your finger on the
pulse of the local commu-
nity. Featuring an English
resum6 of the top stories of
our French newspaper "Le
Journal de Saint Barth",
as well as original articles
in English, the Saint-Barth
Weekly is the only comple-
tely English-language
newspaper 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 wonder-
ful web site that our
friends Bruno and Geral-
dine Colletas 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.


Q uite a sight to see!
Late morning on
Tuesday, November
28, ing the course of an
hour, two of the largest pri-
vate boats in the world were
anchored near each other in
the waters near Corossol, in
the harbor outside of Gus-
tavia. Due to their excep-
tional length, neither of
these yachts can anchor at
the quay, where the largest
boats that can back up to the
dock are dubbed "Saint
Barth Size," a maximum
length of 60 meters.
First was Rising Sun, the
giga-yacht that belongs to
Larry Ellison, founder of
Oracle, a software company
that is a main competitor to
Microsoft. With a length of
137 meters (452 feet), Ris-
ing Sun is as long as the two
cruise ships shown in our
photo (Seaboum Pride, 134
meters, 208 passengers, and
Seven Seas Navigator 170
meters, 490 passengers) in
Saint Barth on Monday.
Built by Lurssen, a German
shipyard in Bremen, Rising
Sun started out at 120
meters, but was increased to
become the largest mega-
yacht in the world (a title it


In the ,. .. Sun, the private
in the world, equal in to such cruise ships as Seabourn
Pride and Seven Seas '


still holds although word is
out that a 147-meter yacht,
code name M-147, should
be completed by the end of
2007).
The second mega-yacht that
pulled into port was the
Perini Navi-built Maltese
Falcon, owned by Tom
Perkins (another industry
titan in Silicon Valley). This
88-meter/288-foot sailing
yacht arrived in the waters
of Gustavia on Tuesday. It
was impossible not to notice
the world's largest sailboat,
which measures 16 meters
longer than Mirabelle, the
former holder of the longest
sailboat title. Not only is it
the longest, but Maltese Fal-
con is also an extremely


interesting boat, an advance
look at the boats of tomor-
row, with a unique three-
masted, all-composite
square rig, with carbon/
epoxy masts towering over
180 feet. The rig was
designed by architect Gerry
Dijkstra and fitted with six
curved carbon fiber arms, or
horizontal structures that
support the massive self-
furling sails. The masts
rotate to trim the sails,
which essentially form one
large, continuous sail sur-
face, when deployed, for
maximum aerodynamic
efficiency. How much does
all this cost? Somewhere in
the hundreds of millions of
dollars!

ne of French doc-
tors to first discover
the AIDS virus in
1983, and president of the
French National AIDS
Council for the past three
years, Dr. Willy Rozenbaum
presided over the 13th bi-
annual COREVIH*
(Regional Centers of Infor-
mation and Care for Human
Immune Deficiency) meet-
ing that took place in Saint
Martin, October 19-26.
During the i n'ccli -. the
doctor presented his posi-
tion on the current fight
against the AIDS virus. For
him, the idea of an anti-
AIDS vaccine is still just an
illusion. This interview con-
ducted by J6novefa Eche,
our correspondent in St
Martin, was translated and
published here on the occa-
sion of World AIDS Day,
commemorated around he
world on December 1st
every year

Jenovefa Eche: More than
20 years have passed since
the discovery ofHIV Can
you retrace the medical
progress made in the fight
against this virus?
Willy Rozenbaum: There
have been large scientific
and therapeutic advances
made over the past 20 years
in the fight against HIV.
After the discovery of the


virus in 1983, the first large
step was taken in 1986, with
the advent of treatments that
could slow the progress of
the disease. A little later,
researchers put their fingers
on a combination of med-
ical treatments, the much
heralded antiretroviral ther-
apy, which can considerable
lengthen the life expectancy
of someone who is HIV
positive. Since 1996, much
progress has been made in
the simplification of these
treatments, from the way
they are administered to the
decrease in negative side
effects, for example. The
past few weeks have
marked the death knell for
treatment via multiple pills,
as it is now possible in cer-
tain cases to provide thera-
peutic treatment in one sin-
gle capsule. Finally,
researchers has also made
progress in terms of the tol-
erance of these medications:
today, the negative side
effects are less consequen-
tial for those who carry the
virus, and many can live
perfectly normal lives.

Jenofeva Eche: What are
the steps being taken in
terms ofprevention? Are
researchers still working
on a vaccine that could
eradicate this disease?
Willy Rozenbaum: In the


TOOJOURS... CONNEc I!

1sk7~~iimmsim~i~waowa.ai


years to come, scientists
will continue to work
toward the simplification of
treatment and their degree
of tolerance. We hope to be
able to replace the cocktail
of pills a patient now takes
on a daily basis with one
simple monthly injection.
But the eradication of the
disease is probably not pos-
sible. After 20 years of
research, we are still in a
position where the inven-
tion of a vaccine to prevent
the virus is still an illusion.
Today, we must look for
new avenues of research,
such as genetic grafting. As
far as prevention is con-
cerned, researchers are


working on the fabrication
of microbicide products that
would work like spermi-
cides currently on the mar-
ket, and would limit con-
tamination during sexual
intercourse. Research on
such preventative treatment
seems promising.
*The COREVIH meeting
for the Caribbean held in
Saint Martin included rep-
resentatives from the French
West Indies as well as other
Caribbean countries such
as Haiti, Santo Domingo,
St. Lucia, andAnguilla.

ONE FISHERMAN FOUND, ONE STILL MISSING AFTER BOAT SINKS


he chances of find-
ing Alex Porsant, a
50 year-old man
from Martinique, whose
fishing boat sank during
the night of Tuesday,
November 21 to Wednes-
day, November 22, are
extremely slim at this
point. But since his body
has not been found, he is
still on the long list of
those reported missing at
sea. Jean Eliska, a 40 year-
old Haitian, was luckier:
after floating at sea for
more than 36 hours, he was
recovered late on Thursday
by a chartered sailboat that
had set sail from Colom-
bier. Exhausted and dehy-
drated, and holding onto an
ice chest used by the fish-
erman, he was able to


muster enough force to
swim close to the boat,
which then brought him
into the Port of Gustavia,
from where he was taken
to the Hospital de Bruyn.
On Tuesday, November 21
the two men set out from
Marigot, Saint-Martin on a
27-foot motor boat en
route to a fishing zone
located between Antigua
and Saint-Kitts. They
reached their destination at
around 11:00pm according
to Jean Eliska, who told
the story of their drama to
the gendarmes. The weath-
er and conditions at sea
were not very favorable,
but the two men decided to
anchor the boat for the
night, before starting to
fish the next morning.


They were surprised by
large swells caused by
rainfall and the boat was
unable to follow the move-
ment of the sea. The first
wave filled the boat with
water, which proved to be
fatal, sinking the boat and
putting the fisherman in
the ocean. Alex Porsant,
who is not a good swim-
mer, was able to pull him-
self into the very large ice
chest that had also fallen
into the water but was very
unstable. Jean Eliska, who
knows how to swim,
stayed in the water holding
onto the ice chest. All day
Wednesday, the two men
remained at sea, searching
in vain for a boat in the
vicinity. During the night,
the force of the ocean


overturned the ice chest,
causing Alex Porsant to
fall back into the water.
Jean Eliska continued to
float until mid-morning on
Thursday, when he finally
saw a sailboat in the dis-
tance. He swam toward the
boat and got close enough
to attract the attention of
the crew. The sailboat had
just left Saint Barth, but
turned back to take Jean
Eliska to the Port of Gus-
tavia. He has since left the
Hospital de Bruyn and has
returned to Saint Martin
where he lives. A man-
overboard alert was sent
out by the CROSS
(Regional Center for Res-
cue at Sea) for Antilles-
Guyana in an attempt to
find Alex Porsant.

Hurricane Season Quiet
in 2006


t;i5~jo m~reirJao^^~.
Ao IhA us:,



V~w~lk41,, Basbal


W while global
experts predicted
that this year's
Northern Atlantic hurri-
cane season would be as
active as that of 2005, in
actuality the season was
rather quiet. There were
just nine hurricanes that
were strong enough to be
named, for a lower average
than that of recent years:
one has to go back as far as
1997 to find a season that
calm. It is also a lower
number of named storms
than was predicted by the
researchers at the Universi-
ty of Colorado, who had
initially estimated between
13 and 16 tropical storms,
of which 10 would reach
hurricane status and four to
six of those would be of
major proportions. These
predictions were lowered


as me season progiesseu.
Of this year's nine hurri-
canes, four remained tropi-
cal storms, and five devel-
oped into full-blown hurri-
canes. The most powerful
storms were Gordon and
Helene, which attained cat-
egory 3 status on the Saf-
fir-Simpson scale, with
maximum winds of 125
mph. None of these storms
threatened Saint Barth or
neighboring islands, which
have not been under hurri-
cane alert since the year
2000. The 2006 hurricane
season officially closed on
Thursday, November 30.

People Watch

Roger Richter:

From Sweden With Love


e fell in love with Saint Barth
in 1993, during his first visit
to the island. A well-known
runner in his native Sweden, Roger
Richter was sent by Klas Hamnar,
owner of the Swedish travel agency,
Westindianspecialisten: His mission
was to organize a group of Swedish
runners for the third edition of the
Gustavialoppet (Hamner, along with
Saint Barth resident Patrick Perron
d'Arc, was responsible for the renais-
sance of this 10km marathon in
1991). In economic terms, the mis-
sion was a flop, since Roger could
only convince nine runners to partici-
pate, but it was a big success in terms
of the conservation and development
of the historic ties that bind Saint
Barth and Sweden. To this day,
Roger can see himself arriving at Le
Select for the first time, with a photo
in hand that Klas had given him of
Marius. He was looking for this
intriguing islander with the unusual
name of Stakelborough. "I tapped a
man on the shoulder who looked like
the one in the photo. And indeed it
was Marius," says Richter. "Wel-
come, Welcome!" Marius replied,
and thus their friendship began.
Impressed by the warmth of this wel-
come, Roger went out of his way
once he was back in Sweden to con-
vince the travel agency not to cancel
this symbolic journey. "I was able to
convince them," he recalls. "The next
year, in 1994, there were 34 of us."
This was quite a challenge for
Richter, whose "day job" is far from
the world of running marathons: he is


actually a marketing and advertising
consultant, who handles campaigns
for the largest sporting goods stores
for runners in Sweden.
In any case, the 37 year old Richter
does not hide his love for Saint
Barth: In early 1994, he was contact-
ed by Lotta Kronstam and asked to
participate in a inj.ccli i in Stock-
holm, of the Saint Barth Society, the
friends of Saint Barth association in
Sweden, for which Olle Nyman was
president at the time (he sadly passed
away last year). Roger became vice-
president of the association in 1995
and president in 2001. This active
association is responsible for the
printing of the 600-page tome, Who's
Who in Saint Barth, a broad "family"
tree for the island based on extensive
research done by the historian Per
Tingbrand, another Swede who fell
under the charms of Saint Barth. In
2005, the association also released a
DVD version of a 37-minute 8mm
film that had been shot in 1952 by
Baron Sten Gustafsson Norden-
skhold. This film is a unique look at
the Saint Barth of yesteryear, and is
available from ASBAS, the Saint
Barth Friends of Sweden Associa-
tion, whose current president Daniel
Blanchard.

other islands in the article include the
Bahamas (Nassau and Paradise Island),
Turks & Caicos, and the Dominican
Republic. "Saint Barth was a great way
to wind up our trip," said Greenfield,
who found the light in Saint Barth to be
amazing. "You can point your camera at
just about anything," she says. Guerra
had been on the island once before, for
the first version of the "best shopping in
the Caribbean" tour, four years ago.
"Saint Barth is the only island we re-vis-
ited," she says. "We try to focus on what
you would be looking for if you were
coming to the island from the United
States, including fashion, jewelry, gifts,
and some d6cor." Guerra includes items
in a range of prices, and tells her readers
where the best shopping is. What does
she like about the island in addition to
the fantastic light: "The shopping is
densest in Saint Barth, which is more
established than say, the Dominican
Republic which is on the up swing. Saint
Barth is also like a self-contained vil-
lage, you can go everywhere," she says,
pointing out that Greenfield's photos
"are amazing. There is so much to shoot
in the Caribbean, and you can get great
exterior shots." The article will appear in
the February 2007 issue of Lucky
(www.luckymag.com).

Philippe Bigot,

new chef at the Christopher Hotel


He may not have
graduated from one
of the top French
cooking schools, but the
passion he shows for his
profession is worth a few
stars on his toque. "He" is
34 year-old Philippe Bigot
who took over the reins in
the kitchen at the Christo-
pher, the four-star luxury
hotel in Point Milou, as of
November. He brings a
new take to the menu and
the high quality of his cui-
sine brings Taino the
hotel's gourmet restau-
rant- back to the top of
the list of the best tables in
Saint Barth. This talented
chef hails from Brittany,
the town of Lorient to be
exact, and he worked in
Paris and London before
joining the group Accor six
years ago. He was based in
Saint Martin before decid-
ing to break out on his own
and take over the kitchen at
the Christopher. His spe-
cialties are varied: Like
many good chefs, Philippe
Bigot is as interested in
meat and fish as in
desserts, and he also serves
as pastry chef. And what a
pastry chef he is! The origi-


nality of his dessert menu
is equal to the excellence of
his confections. His list of
sweets includes the island's
only Omelette Norv6gien-
ne, a real treat for two. This
classic French recipe is to
die for! But if you are look-
ing for \. iicliiig; a little
more unusual try the


Caramel Souffl6 with salt-
ed butter, a recipe from
Brittany not found else-
where in Saint Barth. But
the desserts are just the
icing on the cake.
For appetizers: If you can
have but one, go for the
Foie Gras with figs. It is
homemade and the combi-


nation of foie-gras and figs
is absolutely delicious.
Then again, there is also a
.eliglilliul Red Tuna Tartar
with mango/basil. On the
menu of main courses dis-
tinctive flavors reign, from
cod marinated in coconut
milk (a light, refined dish
for those who don't want
to overdo it) to a hot/cold
combo of mahi-mahi, or
local dorado, on a bed of
cherry tomatoes. Epicures
will enjoy the filet of beef
in a crust with foie gras
and chanterelle mush-
rooms (be sure to ask for
the proper temperature to
avoid having the beef
overcooked). Another spe-
cial is the duck parmentier,
made with slices of duck
confit under a layer of
potatoes. Delicious.
Dinner is served on the ter-
race, overlooking the
hotel's lovely swimming
pool and the waves rolling
onto the shores of Pointe
Milou. On Tuesday-Satur-
day evenings, there is live
music provided by pianist
Phil Nardone as of 7:00pm.
