9th Edition of the Transat A g2r

The Concarneau-Saint Barth Team

Working Miracles


They were grounded
at the bottom of the
ratings since the
boats in the Ag2r rounded
the buoy at Madeira on
April 30, yet the two
sailors aboard the Figaro
Concarneau-Saint-Barth
have risen like the
Phoenix. In first place-
out of 23 boats-as of
thursday evening, the duo
of Eric P6ron (a young
sailor from Concarneau)
and Miguel Danet (a
native of Saint Barth) are
now seriously trying to
win this challenging race:
quite an exploit for this
team without a great deal
of transatlantic racing
experience. No one could
have predicted this eventu-
ality before the race began.
Today they are .'ni,',i,.
the fruit of a daring navi-
gational tactic, as they opt-
ed for an extreme 'iLIuli!.! ii
route, which has brought


/'
.^*


them within 600 miles of
the leader.
But they believed in what


they were doin
all the way with
sion. The result


S the first to catch the trade
/ winds where they are the
strongest. Since then, they
swallowed the miles at an
incredible rate, averaging
a speed of 11 knots, while
those on the northern
route-who were the lead-
ers- were only sailing at
S* j1 four to six knots...
There are about 900 miles
left before crossing the
finish line, with the first
boats expected between
May 12 and hopes are high
that the local team will
arrive first. What an excit-
ing possibility!
The Transat Ag2R, which
takes place every two
years, set sail from the
Breton port of Concarneau
on April 20. A total of 26
teams were on the starting
line, but three abandoned
- during the first part of the
g and went race between Concarneau
their deci- and Madeira.

Search Abandoned For Lost Sailor


earch efforts to find a 42 year-
old American sailor missing
since Monday evening were
abandoned on Wednesday afternoon,
according to the Cross Antilles-
Guyana, responsible for rescue at sea
efforts in the Caribbean and the local
sector of the Northern Atlantic. "In
spite of the great effort expended to
find this man, the search was not
fruitful," said Cross director Aymeric
De Marcellus on Wednesday. "The
entire zone where he might have
been found was swept by both air-
craft and rescue boats, but without
success. As of today, the chances of
finding this sailor are extremely
slim. That is why we decided to
abandon the search effort. Yet all
boats in the area have been asked to
02


keep an eye out just in case."
The lost sailor was the captain of Trib-
al Alli.I li.'i,, a 20-meter motor yacht
registered in the Marshall Islands. On
Monday evening, the yacht was
anchored in the port zone off the coast
of Corossol, and the .,il i jumpil'ed into
the water when the yacht's dinghy
started to float away. It seems he suf-
fered some sort of medical problem.
The crew tried to find him, without
success, before sounding an SOS.
At 9:55pm on Monday, Cross Antilles-
Guyane received the call for help and
forwarded it to the Capitaine Danet,
the rescue station boat in Saint Barth,
and to the Notre Dame de la Garoupe,
the rescue boat from the Dutch side of
Saint Martin. The island's gendarmes
conducted a search on land, while the


customs service boat, the DF 24,
joined the maritime efforts during the
night. Stopped at approximately
4:00am, the operation began again at
dawn. The search effort was conduct-
ed by air, by sea, and on shore, using
the civil safety helicopter, a Dutch air-
plane, the SNSM boat from Saint
Barth, the boats from the port and the
gendarmerie, as well as fireman, vol-
unteers divers, and private citizens
who patrolled until nightfall on Tues-
day. The search continued on Wednes-
day morning but was abandoned by
early afternoon on Wednesday.
The Cross Antilles-Guyana estimated
that there are between 10 and 20 such
operations annually in the large zone it
covers-a surface of almost three mil-
lion square kilometers.

People Watch

Andrew Radcliffe,

painter


ane's Gallery at the
Eden Rock Hotel in
Saint Barth has
become an island mecca
for internationally
acclaimed artists. Recent
exhibits ranges from
Richard Prince to Will
Cotton, both darlings of
the New York art world.
The current exhibit is by
J. A. Radcliffe, known to
his friends in Saint Barth
as Andrew, and includes
hundreds of small pen
and ink drawings by this
American artist who now
lives in Saint Barth with
his wife Kristen and their
two year-old son, Henry.


The Radcliffes moved to
the island two years ago
from the American Virgin
Island of St. John.
Radcliffe studied at Pratt
Institute in Brooklyn then
received a Master of Fine
Arts at the San Francisco
Art Institute in 1987. His
work has been shown in
numerous group shows
and solo shows on the
east and west coasts of
the US, including the
Hackett-Freeman Gallery
in San Francisco, and is
currently at Jane's
Gallery for the next few
weeks, allowing his
friends in Saint Barth to

discover his work. "I'm
really just a regular
person who is inspired by
everything I see everyday
and try to draw or paint
my '-h_. .'hl fantasies or
fears with equal examina-
tion," says Radcliffe,
rather modestly. "I'lili"g
them all together and
arranging them as one is
a way of bringing all
these -h,'l 'Ihis together to
be seen and absorbed at
the same time, so the
viewer can see inside my
head."
While his work is very
intimate, his small draw-
ings are intriguing to the
eye. "If at the same time I
am being perhaps selfish
by drawing such intimate
thoughts, I offer some-
thing surprisingly gener-
ous to the viewer," he
says. "That people keep
staring at the collection
of these drawings seems
proof that they are getting
a lot back, and maybe
they are thinking about
their own strange
thoughts. The fact that


the drawings are simple
pen-on-paper
"depedestalizes" them to
something more com-
mon, which makes them
more accessible. One
person said to me, "We
have never met, but now
I think I know you very
well...."
In addition to the black
and white drawings,
Radcliffe is showing a
series of colorful paint-
ings-oil on linen-that
evoke the tropics. "I use
color forcefully," he says.
"Color is a primary emot-
er of emotion, and one of
the best tools a painter
has." He plans to start
painting larger canvases,
once he has a new, larger
studio. "As with the
drawings, I avoid paint-
ing anything in particular,
nor would I say that I
paint scenes or abstrac-
tions, but everyday I am
stunned and inspired by
the constant beauty of St.
Barth."

Inauguration Of New Radiology Suite

at The De Bruyn Hospital


he new radiology suite at the
De Bruyn Hospital was inau-
gurated on Wednesday, April
30. On hand for the ceremony was
Pierre Nuty, director of the hospital,
Bruno Magras, president of the Col-
lectivity of Saint Barthdlemy, and
Nicole Gr6aux, vice-president in
charge of social welfare, as well as
members of FEMUR and hospital
staffers. A room has been completely
renovated to house the new radiology
equipment, purchased with a donation
of 154,000 euros from FEMUR
(Foundation for Emergency Medical
Equipment in Saint Barthdlemy, a
non-profit American organization
whose goal is to provide needed
equipment to the hospital) and 50,000
from the Kovner Foundation in the
US. The decision to acquire new
equipment was based on the fact that
the existing machine was outdated,
and needed to be replaced.
Radiology Center Planned By 2010


LI


According to Pierre Nuty, this new
equipment is the first step in the
process leading to a full radiology
center at the hospital by 2010. This
center will be the result of a future
agreement with the Bartoli radiology
office, which will be housed at the
hospital. This request was approved
last week by St6phane Mansion,
director of the regional hospital


agency. Additional equipment will
include a scanner whose cost is esti-
mated at 400,000 euros. Where will
the money come from? The answer is
not known for the moment, although
FEMUR will raise as much as possi-
ble. The foundation recently raised
$175,000 in donations from partici-
pants at the 2008 St. Barth Bucket.


The Lions Club In Dominica Receives Donations From Saint Barth


On December 5,
2007, the Lions
Club in Dominica
was pleased to receive a
20' container sent by the
Lions Club of Saint
Barthdlemy. Inside were
donations of (l.,l!iil -.
matresses, linen, house-
hold goods, and shoes, as
well as a large number of
toys for the poorest sector
of the population on this
island in the Antilles
archipelago. Very moved
by these donations, the
Lions Club in Dominica
sent a complete report to
the Lions Club in Saint
Barth, noting that the


Distribution of Gifts to Children at Carols by Candlelight,
December 13, 2007
majority of the toys were 13 to the children in
distributed on December Roseau and the surround-


ing area. The event was
held in the Port of Roseau
ferry terminal. The toys
were wrapped by volun-
teers from the service club
before Ldo Nigel, the
president of the club-
dressed as Santa Claus-
distributed them. The
remaining toys were sent
to various religious
groups or community
groups who gave them out
during their Christmas
celebrations. The Ji-l6hi1ig
and household items in
the container were divided
among various associa-
tions and schools.

Current and Future Projects


Roadwork.

SIn Corossol: Extension of the
city water network with the addi-
tion of pipes to carry water to 15 or
so clients who only had partial
service. This work is currently
underway.

Flamands: The main road in Fla-
mands is being totally repaved. The
water pipes will also be changed
and put underground. Once the
roadwork is complete, the Collec-
tivity plans to add a sidewalk from
the boules court as far as the Isle de
France Hotel.

SIn Colombier: Between Radio
Saint Barth and the intersection for
Corossol, repaving of the road will
begin soon. At the same time, the
water pipes will be replaced, the
electric wires will be put under-
ground and a through for telephone
cables will be created.


In the Quartier du Roy: Urgent
work will begin soon to reconstruct
the roadway for some 30 meters.
Then work will stop until a larger
project begins in 2009.

Around the pond in Saint-Jean:
local residents will be happy to
learn that there should be no further
breaks in the water pipes. At the
same time that the road is being
paved, work on the water system
will also take place with .i\ c!' Il-hiiy
back to normal in a short time.

The stadium in Saint-Jean: the
job has been awarded but work will
not begin until June. This consists
of paving the road from the munici-
pal swimming pool to the archery
field, and at the same time, new
water pipes will be put into place.

SIn Gouverneur: the second
phase of work on the road leading
down to the beach should begin in
September. This is a large project-
it represents the largest portion of
the overall construction budget in
2008 after that set aside for pur-
chasing land-which consists of
putting all pipes underground and


adding water pipes to reach certain
residents of the neighborhood who
were not yet on the city water
system.

IAnse des L6zards: a study is
underway. The technical services
office is waiting for the results
before rebuilding a part of the road
that gave way a little over a month
ago. This is a complication project
that will require some clever tech-
niques to avoid cutting off traffic
completely.

SCol de la Tourmente: taking
advantage of work done by the
EDF, the Collectivity decided to
replace the water pipes between the
Col de la Tourmente and Public. A
simple project, but it will require a
modification of traffic patterns dur-
ing the time the work is being done.
During this time, the road leading
toward Public will be one way
toward Gustavia. The road out of
Gustavia will be the one that goes
past the dispensary.

SPublic: another project that will
affect traffic, is an urgent repair
needed due to a leak in the water
pipes that cross under the main
road linking the two water de-
salination plants. In this case, the
entry to Gustavia will be past the
dispensary then past the water
plant, with the way out of town past
the dispensary. This work is
planned on Pentecost weekend
(May 8-12) in order to disturb traf-
fic as little as possible.

SGustavia: once the Transat Ag2r
has arrived, work will begin on the
security of the maritime terminal.

SGustavia: started last November,
the renovation of the rectory con-
tinues. The project was slowed

down a bit when the deci-
sion was made to add a
large archive in the sub-
basement of the building,
which when finished, will
include this archives, two
meeting rooms on the
ground floor, the bishop's
bedroom, and a studio for
guests.

SGustavia: the church
hall, also known as "caf6
chaud," is under total ren-
ovation. It should be
completed in mid-May
when it will be used as a
performance venue for
the theatre festival, which
takes place May 16-25.
Other than the addition of
air ,.ndlil i iii the reno-
vation centered around
the stage. Its wooden
floor is being varnished.
Control for lighting and
sound has been added on
the mezzanine and the
Collectivity has ordered
theatrical lighting fixtures
and is waiting for the
EDF to agree to add addi-
tional amps (3 x 50 amps)
so that the equipment can
function properly. Phase
two includes making the
auditorium bigger: at this
time only 150 people can
be seated in this new per-
forming arts venue.


SGustavia: the building
of two classrooms for the
new ninth grade class.
These will be built in the
courtyard of the junior
high.

SAnse des Cayes: the
house for by the associa-
tion, L6zard des Cayes, is
almost finished. Just the
restrooms need to be
added.

SPublic: the new metal-
lic structure, to be used as
a recycling center, should
arrive in the next two
weeks. It will replace the
old crushing machine and
shelter the current recy-
cling shed, which is being


taken apart. The goal in
moving the recycling fur-
ther away is to facilitate
the movement of trucks in
the area. The paving of
this new zone is part of
the project.


Saint-Jean: the club-
house for the new territo-
rial tennis courts should
be built by the simmer!
At least the masonry
should be completed.

O iih, i, .ii.'i Gilles Leblond,
who is based in Guadeloupe,
visited Saint Barth from
April 14-20, in order to study the
island's populations of nesting
marine birds. This visit allowed him
to complete a study done in June
2001, with an eye toward editing a
bird atlas for the Guadeloupe archi-
pelago, including Saint Martin and
Saint Barth6lemy. During his week-
long stay, Leblond visited numerous
sites, both on the island and the
smaller out-islands. The cliffs of Petit
Cul de Sac, Pointe Milou, Lorient,
Anse des Cayes, Petite Anse, Grande
Pointe, and Gouverneur were cov-
ered as thoroughly as possible in
order to count the number of nests
present, as well as the number of


species represented, and the
numbers of couples
observed.
The same method was fol-
lowed on the little out-
islands of Groupers,
Fourchue, Pel6, Boulanger,
Fr6gate, Toc-Vers, and
Coco. More than 50 hours
were spent in the field with
the staff from the marine
park, and the week was
highly successful. In Saint
Barth alone there are at least
20 species cohabitating,
including 13 species protected by
international laws. These are divided
into two groups:
- Sedentary species that remain in
Saint Barth all year
- Migratory species that come from
North America
T '

Outings to the salt pond in Saint Jean
were organized for two junior high
classes in ., iiniun li.i 'i with Leblond's
visit to the island. This gave the stu-
dents a chance to observe both nest-
ing and migratory birds in their natu-
ral habitat, and ask questions about
the construction of the nests, the
number of baby birds, their nutrition,
and -ii i fiiini techniques.


The Marine Park answers a
question concerning
the marine environment.

What is a Transect ?
A transect is straight line placed
on the ground along which eco-
logical measurements are taken.
If ecologists wanted to sample the
diversity of organisms in the
marine park, for example, they
would place a number of tran-
sects perpendicular to the shore
and take samples atpredeter-
mined interval lengths. The ecolo-
gists then move along the line
with a yardstick to take their
measurements. Thus they can
count the number of organisms
(coral, shells, sponges, etc.) found
in any given area. In Saint
Barthilemy, two transects 200
feet long are installed permanent-
ly, near the islands of Pain de
Sucre and Coco. Other temporary
transects have been put in place
as well to count the conch popu-
lation in sea grass beds. The
results are compared from one
year to another, allowing an ongo-
ing survey of life along the reefs.

What animal is Found
in the most houses
around the world?
You most likely guessed cat or
dog? Well, not true. Actually the
animal found in the most houses
is the sponge. Yes, a sponge is an
animal! Of course there are syn-
thetic sponges (made from petro-
leum-basedproducts) but these
are less absorbent than natural
sponges. Over the centuries, there
have been many different ways to
fish for sponges. First there were
divers who risked their lives by
plunging 60feet under the sea to
cut off the sponge with a knife.
Later, they trawled the bottom of
the ocean and with each passage
of the machine brought up a
large quantities of sponges.
Today, most sponge fishing is
done by skin-divers. This allows
the selection of large sponges and
leaves the smaller ones to grow.
Once out of the water, the
sponges are cleaned, then
bleached. Please note: in Guade-
loupe and in Saint Barth, it is
illegal to collect sponges, unless
they have washed up on the
shore.
