Piper Cherokee Lands
In The Sea Near Juliana


O n Saturday,
December 30 at
4:25pm, a Piper
Cherokee 6, registration
number N3332W, made an
emergency landing in the
ocean, approximately 700
meters from the start of the
runway at Juliana Airport
in Sint Marteen. The plane
took off from Saint Barth
ten minutes earlier and
was approaching for land-
ing when it seems to have
suffered a technical prob-
lem. According to a press
release published by the
management of the airport
on the day of the accident,
the pilot, an English resi-
dent of Saint Barth and the


only person aboard, was
able to extract himself
from the cockpit, and was
picked up by a private boat
that was close by. The
plane sank in less than five
minutes. As for the pilot,
he was taken to the Coast
Guard offices near the
Simpson Bay Bridge,
where a doctor examined
him. After confirmation by
the pilot and the air control
tower in Saint Barth that
there was no one else
aboard the plane, the secu-
rity measures put into
effect at the airport were
lifted at 6:15pm and air
traffic at Juliana was back
to normal.


A galaxy of "beautiful
people" once again
gathered in Saint
Barth for the New Year's
festivities on the island.
From passengers aboard
mega-yachts to those who
rent villas or stay in luxuri-
ous hotels, they were spot-
ted on the streets, on the
beaches, and in restaurants.
We didn't see them all, and
many pass undetected by
our radar, but those listed
below were certainly here to
welcome the arrival of
2007.
There were a few couples,
including Catherine Zeta-
Jones and Michael Douglas
with their children, Dylan
who is six, and three year-
old Carys. Kurt Russell and
Goldie Hawn, seen getting
out of a dinghy, were here,
as well as "Desperate
Housewife," Eva Longoria,
accompanied by her future
husband, NBA star Tony
Parker of the San Antonio
Spurs. Not to mention Russ-
ian tennis star Anna
Kournikova and singer
Enrique Iglesias, and busi-
nessman Ron Perelman,
owner of the Revlon group,
with his current muse, psy-
chiatrist Anna Chapman.
We also saw singer Bon
Jovi and his keyboard play-
er David Bryan (seen in our
photo taken at La Plage
with Jimmy Buffett and
PayaGuyo). Word has it that


Jimmy Buj]et and David
Bryan, keyboard playerfor
Bon Jovi at La Plage
actresses Uma Thurmann,
Tara Reid, and Sharon
Stone also spent New
Year's Eve in Saint Barth,
as well as actors Denzel
Washington and Mickey
Rourke.
Among French notables
were French finance minis-
ter Thierry Breton, on a per-
sonal end-of-the year vaca-
tion, not related to the even-
tual change in political sta-
tus of the island. And last,
but certainly not least on
our non-exhaustive list of
celebrities: Prince Karim al-
Hussaini, the present Aga
Khan IV, who is the Imam,
or spiritual chief, of the
Shi'a Imami Ismaili Nizari
Muslims. The Aga Khan
brought along quite an
entourage for his first New
Year's Eve in Saint Barth.
Happy New Year to all!

New Year Eve Regatta 2006


A New Record


Organized by Mark Del
Giudice, skipper of the
sloop, Mischievous, with
help from Karl Spijker and
Christoffer Johnson, and in close
collaboration with the Port of
Gustavia and the Saint Barth
Yacht Club, the 2006 New Year's
Eve Regatta featured a flotilla of
31 sailboats. They ranged in size
from the 21' Noah-Noah, the
smallest participant, to the
longest, the 178' Tiara.
The 12th edition of this annual
event began on Saturday, Decem-
ber 30 with the traditional brief-
ing for owners and skippers. The
race set sail the next morning
under sunny skies with winds up
to 22 knots and waves up to eight
feet: fairly ideal 1 c.ihi i condi-
tions in spite of some brief rain-
fall. The staggered starts began at tri
10am for the smallest boats and
continued until 12:05pm when
skipper Claude Thelier set out on the
60' ORMA trimaran, Region Guade-
loupe.
There was a fun ambiance aboard
the sloop Synergy, where
owner/skipper Lea de Haas sailed
with an international crew made up
of French, Dutch, American, and
English sailors (as well as our pho-
tographer Rosemond Greaux).


Claude Thelier aboard his 60-foot ORMA
maran, Rdgion Guadeloupe, the fastest boat
around the island
Dubbed a "fun race," it might not
have been so much fun as the boats
made their way from Gouverneur to
Toiny, with buckets of seawater \
washing the decks. But in spite of
the gusts of wind and large swells,
the boats all made it to the finish
line.
At the end of the day, it was the
Guadeloupe-based sailor Claude


Thelier, in his first outing in this
regatta, who will have his name
engraved on the trophy. Out of all
the boats, regardless of size, his
was the fastest to make it around
the island, clocking in at 1 hour,
31 minutes, and 6 seconds, beat-
ing the record set by the 147'
Baltic yacht, Visione, in 2004, by
one minute. Of the 13 boats in
Class 3 (from 21' to 54'), Botox
Barbie came in first, beating out
Shazaam, for second place, and
Raymond Magras' Speedy Nemo,
for third. In Class 2 (60'-100'),
Fearless, a 72' sloop crossed the
finish line first, followed by
Gitana in second position, and
Van Ki Pass, with local skipper
Randy West at the helm, coming
in third. Of the big boats (over
100') in Class 1, the J-Class
replica, Ranger, took top honors,
in front of the 112' Swan, High-


Claude Theer and his crew savoring thier victory

land Breeze, and Tiara, the largest of
the fleet.
At 5pm that evening, prizes were
awarded on the main dock, with sil-
ver cups offered to all participating
boats by Kirsten and Trey Fitzgib-
bons, owners of Mischievous. Mark
your calendars for the 13th annual
New Year's Eve Regatta: December
31, 2007!

EDDIE COONEY

By Ellen Lampert-Greaux
Photo by Rosemond Greaux


It's been a life at sea for
Eddie Cooney. He is
currently skipper of the
164' Camper & Nicholsons
motor yacht, Andale, which
is anchored next to the clas-
sic wooden sailboat, Ticon-
deroga, at the main dock in
Gustavia. This berth pro-
vides Cooney with an unob-
structed view out into the
harbor, and all the way to
Saint Martin on a clear day.
The 41-year old Cooney
was born in Ireland, and
traces of an Irish accent
pepper his soft-spoken con-
versation. Cooney has lived
aboard one boat or another
for the past 21 years,
remaining a bachelor all the
while. "One of the chal-
lenges is keeping the crew
happy and motivated," he
says. Yet rumor has it that
there is very little crew
turnover on one of Captain


Eddie's boats, and guests
frequently ask if Cooney is
still aboard when they book
their next charter. Those
who know him say he
engenders a sense of pride
and teamwork in his crew
members.
Once he finished school,
Cooney found himself in
Florida with a job as a deck-
hand on a 140' boat called
Mirage. "It was purely acci-
dental," he recalls. "But bet-
ter than politics or busi-
ness." That was in 1985,
when Mirage brought
Cooney to Saint Barth for
the first time, and he's been
coming back ever since.
"Saint Barth is one of the
prettiest islands and the peo-
ple here are very friendly,"
he says. "Everyone remem-
bers you even after a year's
absence." He also appreci-
ates the island's restaurants:

"Everything is done so well
here," he notes.
Back in Saint Barth for its
third winter season, Andale
is a popular charter boat,
well appointed in a luxuri-
ous but comfortable man-
man
ner, with six guest cabins
and space for 11 crew mem-
bers, including Cooney. On
behalf of the owner, he'll
keep the boat in the


Caribbean until mid-March,
visiting such ports as
Antigua and The Virgin
Islands, then sail toward the
Mediterranean at the end of
April, via Florida and
Gibraltar. He primarily likes
to cruise at night, enjoying
winter days anchored under
the tropical sun. "It's a very
pleasant way of life," he
admits.

painter and
copyist, artist
Sophie Amar Bur-
man demonstrates a
certain skillfulness
in imitating the
masters- from fig-
ures and landscapes
to still life. How
does she breathe her
personal style into
thee paintings that
she copies? Quite
simply by the paint-
ings she chooses:
When seen togeth-
er, the copies reflect
the talent of the
copyist. Through her choice and arrangement of elements,
she adds a touch of originality which gives the artist a
sense of "ownership" to the paintings.
In Saint Barth, Sophie Amar Burman presents a collection
of her work whose theme is echoed in the name of the
exhibition: Racines Roots. These paintings mirror the
influences and confluences of the artist's life, including her
island roots (she was born in Guadeloupe) and her admira-
tion for the great masters of painting. Recently seen at the
mythic Deux Magots cafe in Paris, Sophie Amar Burman's
exhibit opens at Gallery Porta 34 in Gustavia on Saturday,
January 6 at 7:30pm.

FOUR KILOS OF CONTRABAND CAVIAR SEIZED


ocal customs officials
seized four kilos of con-
traband Russian caviar sent
to Saint Barthelemy by way
of express mail packages
Sil.hou: proper customs dec-
larations. The estimated val-
ue of the merchandise is
22,400 euros.
The sturgeon eggs were dis-
covered during a routine
inspection and are currently
being analyzed by the veteri-
nary services in St. Martin.
The inspection will deter-
mine if one of the seized
boxed was not fully con-
served. If that is the case, the
keeping of the product at
proper cold temperatures
was not respected, meaning


the caviar is unfit for eating.
The man questioned in this
affair claims to have
acquired the caviar for his
personal consumption. He
will appear in court on Feb-
ruary 23.
Since 1998, sturgeon
(including the eggs) has
been on the endangered
species list and protected by
the US Fish and Wildlife
service. Importing and
exporting this fish in or out
of the European Union is
subject to a special certifi-
cate. Since July 10, 2006,
the protection agreement
limits the possession or
transport of sturgeon caviar
to 250 grams per person.
