WEEKLY KICKS

OFF FIFTH

SEASON!
Here we are again at
the beginning of ano-
ther winter season, and
we are happy to be
back on the scene with
the second issue of the
St. Barth Weekly, now
in its fifth year. Whe-
ther you come to the
island frequently or are
a first-time visitor, we
hope you'll enjoy The
Saint Barth Weekly, the
baby brother of the
Journal de Saint Barth,
our weekly French
newspaper. An English
language publication,
The Weekly covers the
island from all angles,
allowing you to keep
your finger on the pulse
of local politics, news,
arts, and cultural
events.
The Weekly is free and
comes out every Friday
from November
through the end of July.
Pick up a copy at your
hotel, at the tourist
office in Gustavia, or at
numerous restaurants
and boutiques.
Please feel free to offer
your suggestions about
things you'd like to see
in The Weekly, and
once you leave the
island you can stay in
touch by down-loading

version at

oncarneau and Saint
Barth have looked to
two young sailors to
formalize their union. In
2008, these two ports that
host the start and finish of
transatlantic Ag2r race, will
share one boat whose crew is
made up of a young sailor
from each locale: Miguel
Danet for Saint-Barth, and
Eric P6ron for Concarneau,
this port in Brittany which is
known for its old walled city
on an island in its bay, and
built by Vauban. This part-
nership was finalized during
the nautical salon in Paris the
first week of December, dur-
ing a press conference which
featured the two sailors and
official representatives and
partners: Gilbert Le Bris,
mayor of Concarneau,
Michel Magras, vice-presi-
dent of the Overseas Collec-
tivity of Saint Barth6lemy,
and the owners of the car
rental company Top Loc,
Arnaud Grandclerc and Didi-
er Gr6aux, who have prom-
ised 50% of the funding
required from Saint
Barth6lemy, in partnership
with the collectivity. Gilbert


Le Bris and Michel Magras
were thrilled to be able to
keep their promise, born
with a handshake on a ter-
race in Gustavia during the
last edition of the Transat
two years ago when they
asked: "What if we com-
bined our efforts to give a
chance to two young hope-
fuls in open sea racing, one
from Saint Barth and one
from Concarneau in the
same boat?"
Before this project, the two
young sailors didn't know
each other. The first, 26 year-
old is a sail maker and a reg-
ular on the Figaro circuit
who participated in the
Transat Ag2r in 2004. The
second, 22 year-old Miguel
Danet, a professional skipper


aboard Privilbge 45 for Top
Loc, who will take part in
this transatlantic race for this
first time. As of January, they
will be together at the racing
training center in Port-la-
For6t, in Finistbre, to train
against the "big guns" and
learn to navigate together.
The boat, called "Concar-
neau-Saint-Barth," will also
be part of an academic proj-
ect in Saint Barth, since
both Miguel and Eric have
been designated at the
favorites for the island's stu-
dents. Michel Magras has
promised that no matter
how they place in the race,
their arrival will be celebrat-
ed in a big way. We would-
n't accept less...


WHAT Is THE TRANSAT AG2R?
Since the first edition of the Transat Ag2r, Saint Barth
has hosted the arrival of this two-hand, every-other-year
transatlantic sailing race. This event is unusual in that
all of the Figaro B6n6teau boats in the race are identical.
They will set sail on Sunday, April 20 from the port of
Concarneau in Brittany, France. Inscriptions are now
open. At the moment, one boat is officially enrolled, and
nine others have expressed interest and are pre-enrolled.
There are usually 30 teams in the race.

La Chorale de Bons Choeurs

Hopes To Sing In New York


During the local Arts Fest last
Saturday, Charles Darden,
director of the Chorale de
Bons Choeurs, revealed his hopes to
have the choir sing in New York next
spring, during the week of April 25-
May 5. This would represent the first
time that the choir, which is celebrat-
ing its 1lth anniversary in 2008,
would travel. Darden is hoping to
produce two concerts: the first would
be with the professional choir at the
Anglican Church, St. Bart's on Park
Avenue, and the second would be at
the Alliance Francaise. The program
is not yet finalized, but Darden plans
to include gospel, Hayden's Hallelu-
jah chorus, and maybe some Vivaldi.
This would be the perfect opportunity
for the choir to sing the praises of


Saint Barth in the Big Apple: "We
hope to let people know that Saint
Barth is more than just beaches and a
playground for the jet-set; that it also
has a cultural life and numerous lyric
music concerts," explains Cathy
Lain6, the choir's treasurer. Twenty
choir members hope to make the trip
and are currently seeking funding,
from private donors as well as
through two concerts at the Anglican
Church in Gustavia in February. Their
upcoming schedule also includes a
concert on January 21 as part of the
St Barth Music Festival.
If you would like to help finance
their trip, contact Cathy Laind at 06
90 61 37 22 or via email at

Sebastian Schildt


he first in a series of
Swedish artists to
be showcased at the
new Swedish Design Cen-
tre in Saint Barth
(www.swedishdesigncen-
tre.com) is Sebastian
Schildt, an interesting
designer who works both
as a silversmith and a jew-
eler with a passion for pre-
cious and semi-precious
stones. This exhibit marks
his first trip to Saint Barth,
but he promises it won't
be his last.
Schildt was born in Stock-
holm in 1964, where he
attended the Waldorf
School. "I was always inter-
ested in stones," he says.
"Even as a child??I collect-
ed rocks from the ground,
but you can't really be a


stone cutter in Sweden, it's
too small a country."
Instead, he began knocking
at doors asking every jewel-
er in town if he could serve
as an apprentice. "The
answer was always no, but
finally I found a silversmith
you took me in." This
explains the double design
skills of working with silver
and stones.
Although Schildt is modest
about his work, it is said
that his pieces are found in
the collections of members
of the Royal Swedish fami-
ly. His silver pieces include
a graceful water/wine pitch-
er, which has a contempo-
rary look but is made in the
traditional-and difficult-
manner of hammering the
entire pitcher out of one

sheet of sterling
silver, a process -I
that can take up ~
to 100 hours.
"Only the handle
is soldered on,"
he explains. He
also makes hol-
lowware bowls,
including a series
of mini-bowls
lined with bright I
dark blue, light
blue and orange enamel.
The turquoise glass top to
an ice bucket is just the col-
or of the sea in Saint Barth!
His one-of-a-kind jewelry
juxtaposes stones of various
colors and shapes: gray
pearls with an antique red
coral bead from Japan; a
string of tiny black dia-
monds with a diamond soli-
taire and diamonds on the
toggle clasp. When I ask
about diamonds, Schildt's
eyes sparkle like the stones:
"What is most interesting
about diamonds is the way
the light is reflected when
the stones are cut correctly,"
he says. "Diamonds are the
most reflective."
Schildt has put diamonds to
work in many of his pieces,
from a modernist pave dia-
mond and silver ring called
Manhattan-tall and glittery
like the city. He also shows
off a diamond-encrusted
locket, the size of a small
pillbox, with stones on the
front and back of a graceful
floral pattern of white gold.
The locket sits on a single
strand of gray pearls that
can be worn alone, on sim-
pler occasions, when the
locket is removed. You can
also exchange it for a simi-
larly designed diamond
covered cylinder for yet
another look.


Another interesting twist to
his work is the fact that
many of the pieces are
designed for multi-use, with
one or more parts that can
come off. "When you take
the pendant off, this neck-
lace has a different look,"
Schildt demonstrates, gently
removing an aquamarine
pendant from multiple
strands of small aquamarine
beads that have a diamond
studded clasp.
Schildt travels around the
world looking for great
stones, and has a network of
dealers that bring me things
they think I will be interest-
ed in. "I can't resist buying
so I have a safe full of
stones waiting for me," he
admits. As to defining his
style, he says: "I have my
feet in the classics, but I
think my work is contempo-
rary. In Sweden, modern
artists work more with sil-
ver and plastics, not pre-
cious stones." As a result,
SJIiiidl'i work seems even
more contemporary in Swe-
den, where jewelry is usual-
ly quite traditional. But as
he puts it, "the most inter-
esting thing about any piece
of my jewelry is the woman
who wears it."

Christmas Markets
In Saint Barth


he age-old tradition
of Christmas mar-
kets has come to
Saint Barth. This holiday
tradition began in the east
of France, specifically in
Strasbourg, where the old-
est market dates back to
1570. On Friday, Decem-
ber 7, ALMA organized
the first local market, with
the next one scheduled on
the main dock in Gustavia,
and organized by the pre-
school in Gustavia, on Sat-
urday, December 15, from
4pm-7pm.
The market last Friday was


held from 6pm-10pm in the
parking lot of ALMA in
Public, and drew a large
crowd to the various stalls.
Live music was by the local
band, Falco, and Christmas
carols were sung in keeping
with the holiday spirit.
Other than good deals and
Creole food, the market
also had a charitable aspect:
the Lions Club put up a tent
and organized a Bingo
game. A portion of the pro-
ceeds was donated to the
Telethon; the rest goes to
help finance the club's local
activities.

SEEN IN ST BARTH


A Letter to Santa Claus


iik/h2 -


Welcome in St Barts, Ticondera crew!
The Fireman's Dream Team
pn -MM k T


The students at the nursery school in Gustavia can rest
assured that the letter they sent in plenty of time to
Santa Claus will receive a card in response from merry
old St. Nick thanks to operation Santa Claus' Secre-
tary, organized by the French postal servicefor the past
45 years. To deal with all the mail sent to Santa Claus,
a team of 60 secretaries work atLibourne, in the
Gironde region of France. Last year, 1.4 million letters
came their way. Children have until SaUinldua to send a
letter if they hope to get an answer before Christmas.


The French fireman's patron saint is Saint Barbara, and
"Sainte Barbe" Day was celebrated last weekend. Saint
Barth's firemen started celebrating on Saturday, December 8
with a sports demonstration, followed in the evening by the
Fireman's Ball. On Sunday (see photo), the fire trucks and
firefighters paraded in the streets of Gustavia.


Opening night cocktail party last Friday in the offices
ofAvalon Real Estate, a new agency on Rue Lafayette
in Gustavia. Specialists in transactions, management,
and seasonal rentals, owners Nicolas Benazzouz and
Erol One joined their guests in a champagne toast.

* Puzzle Gat
There's no math involved. The grid has numbers, but noth-
ing has to add up to anything else. You solve the puzzle
with reasoning and logic. It's fun. It's challenging. It's
addictive!"Fill in the grid so that every row, every column,
and every 3x3 box contains the digits 1 through 9."That's
all there is to it.
