H amilton 11, a beauti-
ful 117-footer built
in 2005 by CNB
Bordeaux and designed by
naval architect Philippe
Briand was the big winner
of the 13th annual New
Year's Eve Regatta held on
December 31. 2007. Rough
seas and rainy skies made
for a challenging sail: "It
was another day of survival
out there," said Mark Del
Guidice, skipper of the 65'
Meriten, Mischievous, who
is the principal organizer of the annual
race, along with the help of his crew
member, Karl Spjiker (a Dutchman
who lives in Sint Maarten), and the
close collaboration of the St. Barth
Yacht Club and the Port of Gustavia.
"The sailing was fantastic," says
Hamilton II's owner, Charles Dun-
stone, who hails from London (UK).
He has sailed in this race several times
in the past but this year marks his first
win. "Twenty knots is optimum for the
boat," he says, admitting that the 25-
28 knots seen during this regatta were
"a bit much." But that didn't stop
Dunstone from successfully maneu-
vering past the competition in the
around-the-island race that heads from

Ilh scientific side of the marine park in Saint Barth, pre-
sented a report in early January with the results of two
transects anchored on the ocean bottom near the small
island "La Baleine du Pain de Sucre" which is in lhe
marine park zone, and that at Islet Coco, which is out-
side the zone. The results confirm that 25 to 31 :. of the
coral has died due to a prolonged period of elevated
ocean temperatures (over 80 degrees F). This is a worri-
some phenomenon, and should such an event recur fre-
Lquently. the coral reef is in danger of di.sappcaring com-
pletely and with it many forms of marine life.

Created by Nicole Aussedat, Isabelle Deravin, Annick

milestone, the choir presented two special concerts at the

in New York in l:he spring of 211 Is.

Martine Laint at Porta 34. January 4-10. 2008
From Traces of Writing
to Spirit Masks
Martine Laind works with traces of writing left by
man wherever he goes, from urban graffiti or anno-
tations on paper to the traditional tapa cloth that
Pygmy women cover with paint. Laind also works
with Kodiak spirit masks,
inanimate objects no longer
fabricated. Those who wore
these masks saw and
breathed through them,
becoming one with them.
When a mask was worn
out, either it was burned or
left outdoors to return to its
natural state, to free the
spirit it incarnated. What is
left of these masks, but
their spirits?

Stripped of sand by major erosion due to hurricanes Luis
and Lenny, as well as walls built al .ing the beach and an
unsuccessful attempt to add sand to the beach in 2000,

the beach in Saint Jean finally gets some of its soft gold-
en sand back. A project to add sand to the beach was
launched in late October by the hotel association, wiilh
3i "(1Il cubic meters sand dredged from between the
coral reef and tlhe beach.

With a vote of 18 to 1, the territorial council adopts a list of
