Tourism Lower In 2008, But Not Drastically


he figures for Gustav III airport
and the Port of Gustavia for 2008
reveal a decrease, but not in a
free fall, in the number of tourists
recorded: -8.94% at the airport; and
between -4.39% and -12.2% at the port
compared to 2007, which had been a
healthy year. From this point of view,
nothing too dramatic, yet one must not
minimize this decrease, which goes
hand-in-hand with the 2% global
decrease in tourism experienced in 2008,
according to the World Tourism Organi-
zation (WTO) report made public on
January 27, 2009. Analyze the details
below.

At The Airport, A Lower
Than Average Year
With 164,282 passengers (departures
and arrivals), 2008 places near the bot-
tom of the chart in terms of tourism
since 1997- ninth position (out of 12
years), ahead of 2002 (162,683), 2004
(161,598) and 2005 (159,505)-with a
net loss of 16,131 passengers compared
to 2007.
The decline in commercial aviation
(8.61%), also has hit non-commercial
aviation in a big way, with a decrease of
32.35% in 2008, over the figures for
2007.
On paper, not all airlines experienced a
loss. Air Antilles Express increased its
market share by 64.4% percent over
2007. But this upswing is false: in reality
it reflects a transfer of clients from Air
Caraibes. As a result, without this route,
Air Caraibes fell from second to third
place for airlines that serve St Barth,
behind first place Winair, with 57,852
passengers (a 6% decrease over 2007)


and Saint Barth Commuter, second with
a total of 37,064 passengers. It is inter-
esting to note that "Commuter," the only
Saint Barth-based airline experienced a
decrease of only 0.2% in relation to
2007.
Of all the airlines that fly here, the only
real winner is the private charter compa-
ny, Trade Wind Aviation, which enjoyed
an increase of a little more than 10%,
with its total number of passengers
climbing from 3,014 in 2007 to 3,324 in
2008.

Slowdown In The Second Part
Of The Year
The statistics at the airport include more
detailed facts and figures (such as where
the passengers are coming from or going
to...), yet there is more than just the
numbers for 2008, a year where tourism
did not follow any usual patterns.
The first three months saw a slight
increase, a small percentage, but posi-
tive-between 0.35 and 2.95%--which
gave way to April and a fall of over 21%
compared to the same period in 2007.
Since then, the level continued to fall to
new "high lows," all in the double digits
as of September: -20.51% in September;
-18.05% in October; -15.39% in
November; and -11.10% in December.
This trend reflects a decrease in tourism
on a global scale as of the second half of
2008.

At The Port,
Numbers Diminish
Throughout 2008, the numbers at the
port were down, compared to 2007, a
year that saw record highs. Yet the year


Contrasting Situation In The Caribbean
On January 29, the CTO or Caribbean Tourism Organization, released its sta-
tistics concerning tourism in 2008 for its members. These statistics vary,
according to the destinations. The report reveals that Anguilla had 10% fewer
visitors from January through August, but that Saint Martin (not counting
cruise ships) saw a 3.9% increase for the months of January through October
2008. The largest gain in 2008 was that of Curagao, with an increase of 30,9%
(266,164 visitors) between January and September, followed by Aruba
(+15,9% from January to April with 295,841 visitors), and Cuba, +10,9% (1,9
million visitors) from January to October. The largest drop was in Guyana,
with a decrease of 25,8% (38,590 visitors) between January and May, after
Anguilla, (53,077 visitors, -10,8% between January and August), and Saint
Vincent and the Grenadines (52,899 visitors, -10,4%). The only member from
the French West Indies is Martinique, which reported a decrease of 4.4%
from January to August
Out of 27 destinations, 13 reported a decrease in tourism during 2008.


was not a total disaster. In the sector of
pleasure boats (motor yachts and sail-
boats), even with a drop of 12.2% in the
number of passengers from 2007, the
year 2008 was better than average at the
end of the day. With 34,564 passengers
in this category, 2008 finished as the
third best year since 1997. BUT, the first
trimester of the new port season (from
November 2008 through January 2009)
saw a decrease of 19% in the number of
passengers and 15% in terms of numbers
of boats, indicating that the decrease is
likely to continue over the next few
months.
Ferry traffic also slowed down in 2008,
yet the decrease was just -4.39% in the
number of passengers compared to
2007. Like in the yachting sector, the
first trimester of the current season
(from November to the end of January)
saw a larger decrease, closer to -22% in
the number of passengers, which fell
from 16,847 to 13,050.
As for cruise ships, 2008 was clearly the
worst year since 1997, both in the num-
ber of ships calling in the port-147
compared to 188 in 2007-and the num-
ber of passengers-42,477 against
45,039 in 2007. Things look better for
the months of November 2008-January
2009, with the number of cruise ships
increasing by 4%, from 74 to 77, and the
number of passengers up by 32%, jump-
ing from 21,961 during the same period
in 2007, to 27,752.

Global Tourism In Decline,
But Not Everywhere
The WTO, which noted a slowdown
in tourism during the second half of
2008, feels there will be a similar
downturn in 2009. At worst, they
predict a global decrease of 2% in
numbers of tourists. At best, their
prediction is for the status quo.
In their scenario, Europe and the
Americas (including the Caribbean)
should be the regions the most affec-
ted by this downtown, with the
numbers exceeding the average for
certain destinations, due to the eco-
nomic crisis which has caused a
recession in certain zones. In Asia,
the Pacific, Africa, and the Middle
East, according to the WTO, the
trend will be a growth in tourism,
even if it is less than was experien-
ced in recent years.

ast Tuesday, worried
drivers waited in
Long lines at both of
the island's gas stations,
creating major traffic jams
in Lorient and Saint Jean!
This flocking to the pumps
came on the heels of a
report that general strikes
were strengthening in
Guadeloupe and Mar-
tinique, where the reserves
are kept for the Antilles fuel
company, SARA, which
provides fuel to Saint Barth.
Many people feared that the
reserves and the ports
would be blocked, and if so,
delivery of fuel would be
impossible.
The situation accelerated to
the point where the Collec-
tivity had to release a state-
ment denying a fuel short-
age, or even the risk of one.
Signed by first vice-presi-


or- ,


H~f a





dent Yves Greaux, the state-
ment noted that, "the
rumors of a fuel shortage
are totally false. The current
reserves are at their normal
level, and with the normal
use by customers would
easily last until the next fuel
delivery, which is scheduled
for the end of February." In
addition, "Contacts has
already been made to ensure
delivery from another
source, if necessary."
ONE LITER OF GAS
AT 1 EURO!
Due to the decrease of fuel
prices in Guadeloupe last
Monday, one liter of lead-
free gas in Saint Barth fell
to 1.06 euro on Monday
morning, a price lower
than that of August 2005.
Diesel fuel was priced at
1.02 euro per liter.

Saint Barth As Seen

by Devorah Rose and Kristian Laliberte


"T1 e love Saint Barth!"
W e Those were the first
Swords uttered by Ameri-
can journalists Devorah Rose and Kris-
tian Laliberte when we met them for
bli. c.,is -.ii ti Sereno hotel in January.
Originally planning to come for the
New Year's hoopla on the island, their
trip was delayed, and in the long run,
they seemed to enjoy discovering the
island in its more "natural" state. "We
were approached by Black Book to do
a guide about architecture, lifestyle, and
restaurants for Saint Barth," says Rose,
who is the editor-in-chief of Social Life
Magazine, based in New York City,


where she has her pulse on the hippest,
coolest in-crowd, from SoHo to The
Hamptons. Her "partner in crime," as
she refers to him is Kristian Laliberte.
Together, their youthful exuberance is
infectious and makes you want to see
the island through their eyes: first-
timers who can't drink it all in fast
enough!
"Once word got out we were coming
here, we were asked to do a diary of
our experiences for Whitewall lifestyle
magazine as well, and there is some TV
in the works," Rose says with a smile.
Dressed very elegantly in outfits pro-
vided by Calypso in the US, including
the beaded tunic dress she was wearing
when we met, and strappy Beverly
Feldman back heels with flowers, Rose
notes, "We are really enjoying taking in
our surroundings. You really hear a lot
about Saint Barth and everything is so
beautiful."
But \ iilh the economic situation what it

is, Laliberte adds, "We will write for
the budget-conscious travelers, or
'recessionistas,' as well." Rose and
Laliberte interviewed people across the
island, from Carole of Ti Saint Barth to
Marc Theze at Guanahani. "We quickly
discovered that everyone knows every-
one," they remarked. "We hosted a par-
ty at Casa Nikki and have so many
friends here already." From Casa Nikki,
they also partied at Hot Spot Cafe, in
their attempt to present a real insider's
view of the island.
"What I think is great about Saint
Barth," says Rose, "is that people come
as clients and leave as friends who
want to come back." That is certainly
the case for Devorah and Kristian. "We
want to see past the reputation and
image of the island," Rose says. "This
is just the beginning of a beautiful rela-
tionship."

With a shop in the
Cape Cod town
of East Dennis,
amid historic houses and a
stone's throw from the
ocean, jeweler Ross Cop-
pleman grew up outside of
Boston, and went to Har-
vard, where he studied Eng-
lish. Not your typical career
path for a man who works
with gold, silver, platinum,
diamonds, and other pre-
cious stones, perhaps, but


Coppelman put aside
preconceived notions
of what he "should"
do in life, to do what
he really loves doing
instead. His work is
currently on display
at Les Artisans in
Gustavia.
"I didn't want to go to grad
school," says Coppelman.
He felt he wanted to do
something with his hands,
and in 1970 set off for near-
by Cape Cod. "There were
a lot of artists living there
then," he recalls. "I got a
job in a small handmade sil-
ver business at $1.50 an
hour. Three months later I
was laid off and started
doing my own work." As a
way to release his creative

energy, Coppelman became
a self-taught jeweler: "This
has advantages and disad-
vantages," he says. "One of
the advantages is that you
don't know what you're not
supposed to do."
One of the things he did, but
would have been told
shouldn't be done, was
work with 22K gold, as it is
considered too soft. He was
working with platinum on
22K gold but found the
combination too expensive,
and has shifted to sprinkling
gold dust on sterling silver,
"like sand," he says. "I like
the randomness of it. You
never know exactly what
will happen. That's what
makes it interesting."
Coppelman also works with
various stones, such as
pearls and turquoise he has
been cutting himself and
studding with diamonds. "I
used to do everything with
stones, but now work more
in silver and gold," he
admits. Yet his collection


nas a coiorrui necKiace or
red sponge coral and black
lava rock with a gold and
diamond pendant, a neck-
lace of white Chinese fresh
water pearls (called petal
pearls as they look like corn
flakes, he notes) with a 22K
gold, platinum, and dia-
mond closure, and an ele-
gant aquamarine pendant.


A new line of silver and
gold pieces is based on
Coppleman's environment
in Cape Cod: "I was watch-
ing the sunset and the water,
and started doing pieces
with curves as waves," he
explains. There are bracelets
with waves and the sun, as
well as pieces with dia-
monds accenting the pre-
cious metals. "If something
hits me emotionally, it
shows up in my work even-
tually."
After visiting Saint Barth
several times with Susan,
his wife of almost 40 years
(they were high school
s\ cithlca!ts' Ross met Jo-
Anne Quetel and Albert
Yaphet from Les Aritsans
and they added a few of his
pieces to their collection.
This year marks his first full
show at the boutique/
gallery. "My work is more
accessible than in the past,"
he says. "It has a wider
appeal for people who
might not like art jewelry."


wlm mns own snop in Lape
Cod the busiest during the
summer months, Coppel-
man enjoys his annual visit
to the island: "The only
time I get to go to the beach
is in Saint Barth," he says,
happy to be able to combine
business with pleasure!

column, and every 3x3 box contains the digits 1 through
9."That's all there is to it. (Solution page 10)
