edition of The St.
Barth Weekly, so

rite island.

If last year's Bucket, with
virtually no wind for the
entire three days, was a
year to forget, this year's St.
Barth Bucket Regatta may be
remembered as one of the best.
The 12th edition of this invita-
tional regatta for giant sail-
boats of over 100'- with a
few smaller exceptions to
round out the fleet-had suffi-
cient wind, good sailing condi-
tions, and a magnificent col-
lection of yachts, owners,
skippers, and crew members
that filled the Port of Gustavia
from March 29-April 1, 2007.

With a race committee
chaired by Hank Halsted of
Northrop and Johnson Yachts,
a local organizing committee
led by Melanie Smith, and the
support of the Port of Gus-
tavia and the St. Barth Yacht
Club, the Bucket captures the
imagination of the entire
island for a magical weekend
each spring when the main
docks are filled with some of
the most magnificent sailing
vessels in the world. This
year, the head of the fleet in
terms of sheer size and tech-
nical wizardry was Maltese
Falcon, Tom Perkins' newest
yacht that is not even a year
old: the Bucket was just its
third race.

The wind was calm but suffi-
cient enough for the first day's
race around the island, but
things really picked up with 25
knots average on Saturday and
Sunday for some great sailing.
With their spinnakers unfurled
on Sunday as they raced
around the island in the other
direction from Friday's race,
the boats in the regatta were
quite a sight out on the water.
"We had a wonderful day out
there on Sunday," said Dayton
Carr, who was aboard Sojana

with owner Peter Harrison.
"The winds were pretty steady,
we had a lot of fun and some
really good sailing."

"It is rare to see a fleet of
yachts this large racing togeth-
er," said Halsted at the Bucket
award ceremony on the dock
Sunday evening. He was
extremely pleased that the
Bucket has "hit stride this
year, and was sponsored by
the yacht industry from the
inside." All sponsors are listed
on the Bucket's website at
where a history of the Bucket
can also be found.

Not only was the racing spec-
tacular, with staggered starts
to ensure close finishes, good
handicapping, and a great
sense of camaraderie among
the crews, skippers, and own-
ers. On hand was Mike
"Sparky" Beardsall, former
skipper of the J-Class
Endeavour, back as the skip-
per of Rebecca, and winner of
the Cool Crew award for the
second year, as well as the
Churchill Corinthian Cup for
seamanship in the spirit of
yachting, which says some-
thing about Sparky's leader-

Tim Laughridge was also
back in a freelance capacity
as the helmsman of the over-
all Bucket winner, the 126'
Palmer Johnson sloop, Kaori,
the boat formerly known as
Mandalay when it was owned
by Nelson Doubleday, one of
the creators of the original
Newport Bucket, in 1986.
Laughbrigde was happy to
see Kaori win the Bucket,
especially as it was not only
the first win- but also the
first race- for its new owner
Mike Panther.

A special member of the
Bucket committee this year
was Boston-based venture
capitalist Brian Owen, who
"won" the spot on the com-
mittee at a silent auction dur-
ing a fund-raising event for
the Brain Tumor Society in
Boston. He sailed on Skylge
on Friday and Highland
Breeze on Saturday. He is
also an amateur photographer
and had a slideshow of his
Bucket shots on a laptop at
the owner's party.

From the skipper's briefing
aboard Maltese Falcon to the
owner's party at David Ray's
fabulous home above the Port
of Gustavia, to the Boat Hop
on Friday night, the events
surrounding the regatta added
to the fun. The Dubois-built
yacht, Destination Fox Har-
b'r, lent its 68' fishing boat,
Too ReJoyce, as a press boat,
allowing local and interna-
tional photographers to take
thousands of photos of the
boats during the three days of

Bucket history continues to
be written with more awards,
more sponsors, more big
boats, and a great "Bucket"
spirit. From a mini-Bucket
with 18" wooden sailboats
made by artist David Wegman
and island children racing
these little boats in the harbor
on Saturday to the closing
night party with a mini-con-
cert by Jimmy Buffet, this
was a Bucket to remember.
"There's nothing like being in
Saint Barth and singing for a
bunch of drunken sailors,"
roared Buffet. And the crowd
roared back!

Sustainable Development Week Runs Until Saturday

Wind turbines and energy conservation

on local agenda

A week dedicated to
sustainable envi-
ronmental devel-
opment that was initiated
by the French Minister of
Ecology in 2002, is cele-
brating is fifth edition this
year. The goal is to create
environmental solutions
for today that will not
have negative impact on
the needs of future genera-
tions in Saint Barth. The
island has its trash issues
under control and must
now face a bigger chal-
lenge: energy. The heart of
the matter is the necessity
to find a complementary
source of electric produc-
tion after the municipal
council rejected the EDF's
proposal to build a cable

carrying electricity from
Saint Martin to Saint
Barth. But there are other
issues at stake as well:
"We must find solutions
that do not generate CO2
emissions," states Sylvain
Michelet, the island's
technical services director
who points out that today
the production of electrici-
ty is one of the major
causes of CO2 emissions
in Saint Barth.

"In this sense, the use of
wind turbines seems like a
good solution. Two com-
panies are currently work-
ing on feasibility studies
for the island." Where,
how, how many? There
are many questions that

need to be answered.
Would the wind turbines
be put on the island, or on
small outlying islands? Or
perhaps out at sea? "That's
possible, but the installa-
tion is more difficult and
we prefer a more rapid
solution," says Michelet.

Concerning the quantity of
energy to be produced, for
now, the goal is modest.
"At first we need to see
how this would work. It is
not a question of replacing
the electricity produced by
the EDF factory, but sim-
ply to augment it,"
Michelet adds.

In addition to the wind
turbines, the municipality
has also launched an ener-
gy conservation policy
and is reducing the level
of public lighting, with
dimmers soon to be
installed on some of the
fixtures: "For now it will
be a test," says Michelet.
"If it proves conclusive,
dimmers will be added to
all existing lighting." As
for new lighting and that
which needs to be
replaced, the municipality
is looking to solar panels.

If the idea seems crazy 10
years ago, the island is
now seriously considering
the composting of vegetal
materials: "Today we have
enough trash to generate
the steam for the water
desalination plant*
without burning leaves
and branches," says
Michelet "So we no longer
need to burn them." The
idea is to create a zone for
composting near the
future water treatment
plant in Gustavia. "We
will continue to collect
vegetal materials at the
trash collection center
before moving them to a
covered compost area to
speed up the process,"
says Michelet. The island
is also looking at the possi-
bility to integrate the
sludge from the treatment
plant whose humidity
would add to the compost

In Saint Barth, the heat
generated by the burning
of trash is transformed
into steam that is used to
operate the motors at the
water desalination plant.

Service included
at all restaurants!
An email distributed last week by
Elise Magras, the director of the
Municipal Tourist Office, has
spurred a discussion about the rules applied
to restaurants and their tariffs. In the email,
Magras points out that certain restaurants
on the island have added a service charge of
up to 20% of the total bill, as pointed out by
clients. Yet under French law since 1987,
"service is included." As such, all bills
should say "taxes and services included," or
mention "net prices, taxes and services
included." Sadly, this is not always the case
in Saint Barth where restaurants usually just
provide a bill for what has been consumed
and creating a practice that is confusing for
international clients not familiar with
French rules. President of the island's hotel
association, Didier Bensa, calls these inci-
dents "very regrettable," yet are not univer-
sal. "There are some isolated cases and not
a general practice," he says. "But a good
reminder of the rules cannot hurt the good
reputation of the establishments in Saint

Do not be confused... service is a charge
that clients pay for being served in a res-
taurant and is shared as part of the
salary by all restaurant employees. Tip-
ping is not an obligation in France but
rather an indication of the service recei-
ved. There is no set rate for a tip and the
amount can vary greatly according to
the service received.

n May 19, St. Martin res-
ident Yves Kinard is
going to pull up his
anchor and head toward the port
Saint-Martin-de-Re on the Ile de
Re in France. He will be crossing
3,100 nautical miles on the open
seas in a small motorboat of just
21 feet... quite a feat! The boat
should be put in the water as of
May 5, after 16 months of hard
work by Kinard who is both a
skipper and a naval architect
who built his boat from A to Z.
The basic idea is to cross the
Atlantic from Saint-Martin to
Saint-Martin-de-Re in a small
motor with stopping, then to dis-
play the boat at the Grand Pavois
in La Rochelle, from September
19 to 24.

- owI

The initial goal was, and is, to
launch the boat and at the same
time create a shipyard in St.
Martin. But the idea has evolved
around the question of fuel and
Kinkaid has adopted measures to
use the smallest amount of fuel
possible, as he will not stop to
refuel. This has positive environ-
mental impact on one hand and
might also lead to the creation of
a transatlantic race for motor-
boats, which would be based on
speed as well as the amount of
fuel used. Kinkaid's crossing
will establish the first record for
the new Atlantic Power Boat
Challenge, which will be open-
if all goes well-to all motor-


21' long, 9.5' across, 3.2'
draft, 12' from the keel
to the roof; it weighs an
average of 3.5 tons but
4.5 tons at the start of
the crossing due to
extra fuel. If the motor
breaks, a kite-surfing
sail is Plan B.

Lobster Weighing Almost
15 Pounds Caught
ourteen pounds and
seven ounces-
that's the weight of
an enormous Caribbean
lobster caught last week
by Bernard Greaux, a pro-
fessional fisherman who
had caught a lobster of
almost 11 pounds two
weeks earlier. Greaux
estimates that the 14-
pound lobster is about 12
years old. He says that the
taste of these large lob-
sters is different and
stronger than the small
lobsters in the same fami-
ly, and indicates that the
larger ones are better for
stew than the barbeque.
As to where he goes lob-
ster fishing, his lips are


Record Rainfall

In March

f temperatures in March were almost
identical to those in March 2006, the
amount of rainfall broke all records for
the month of March, which is usually a dry
month. With 5.4 inches of rain last month,
it was a historic month. The previous
record rainfall was in March 1972 with five
inches of precipitation.
This unusual amount of rain seems to be
have been caused by the meeting of hot air
and equatorial humidity at a certain altitude
with cold air coming from more temperate
latitudes near the Northern Islands.
After relatively dry months in January and
February there has been almost eight inches
of rain since the beginning of 2007, which
puts the year slightly ahead of average.
Seasonal predictions for April, May, and
June look normal in terms of rainfall but
may be a little hotter than average.
