Students Benefit From St Barth Bucket

Hank Halsted, chair of the
St Barth Bucket Regatta
committee, along with
Ernest Brin, director of the
Port of Gustavia, Wendy
Kronenberg of Nautica
FWI, and Chantal De Ros-
ny, director of shore activi-
ties for the Bucket, visited
the Mireille Choisy junior
high school on Friday,
December 4. They met
with principal Christian
Led6e, who had received a
check for 17,500 Euros
during the 2009 Bucket
awards ceremony. The
funds were earmarked for
the purchase of new com-
puters for the school, and
were used to buy 20 com-
puters placed in two class-
rooms: 8 in CDI and the
other 12 in the technology
lab. Christian Ledee
thanked Hank and the
Bucket for making this new
high-tech equipment avail-
able to the students, who
are happy with to have
these new computers.

40 Boats In the
2010 Bucket Fleet!
Hank Halsted also con-
firmed that the fleet for the
2010 St Barth Bucket, which
takes place March 25-28,
will comprise 40 sailboats,
five more than last year. This

marks a new record for the
size of the fleet, confirmed
the continued success of this
rendezvous for luxury
yachts: "We had 55 requests,
but in order to guarantee the
best possible organization,
we set the limit at 40 boats,"
explains Halsted, who hopes
that the fleet can continue to
evolve, slowly but surely.
And to make sure the organi-
zation of this invitational
regatta, reserved for sailboats
over 100 ft, is flawless, the
Bucket committee decided
to hire Peter Craig, president
of Premiere Racing Events
based in Marblehead, MA,

as race director. Premiere
Racing owns and manages
two large races: Key West
Race Week in January and
the Miami Grand Prix in
March, and provides profes-
sional management for
numerous other sailing
events as well.
Among the boats on the ros-
ter for the 2010 Bucket is
the new J-Class replica: the
42-meter (138') Hanuman,
which was completed Royal
Huisman by in 2009, and
joins J-Class originals
Endeavor and Shamrock, as
well as Ranger, also a repli-
ca. Also new to the fleet is

Felicita West, for the
moment the largest on the
list at 64 meters (209'), and
the magnificent 132' Het-
airos with its mahogany
deck. Other newcomers
include Liara (30
meters/98'), the newest
build by Performance
Yacht, with 85% of the ves-
sel (hull and deck) made of
carbon fiber, and Pj!!ilijls-
sa (56 meters/ 84'),
launched on November 16
and the latest from Perini
Navi (returning to the Buck-
et in full force with 8 boats
already on the list).

The "Pourquoi Pas?" On A Mission

Having set sail from the
port of Brest in Brittany on
November 17, the
"Pourquoi Pas?" has been
anchored between Gros-
Ilets and Petits Saints since
Monday, when it began its
mission of updating the
hydrographic information
needed to redo the marine
charts for the waters
around the islands of Saint
Martin, Saint Barthelemy,
and the Anguilla canal. The
most recent information
was gathered in the 1950s,
although some dates back
to the 19th century.

Alongside Midsummer, the
Lucia celebrations represent
one of the foremost cultural
traditions in Sweden, with
their clear reference to life

bearer of light in the dark Swedish winters.

Christopher Hotel

Has A New Look

After an almost total renova-
tion, the Christopher Hotel in
Point Milou opened in mid-
November but held its offi-
cial inauguration last Satur-
day at sunset. Completed in
record time, the renovation
focused on the restaurants,
reception, lobby, bar, pool
deck, and the redesign of 11
of the guest rooms, while the
30 remaining rooms were
Design Affairs, in collabora-
tion with the firm, Lotus,

handled the architectural
aspects of the project, while
Cristina Rodriguez lent her
talent to the interior design.
The result is simply superb,
with a refined, contemporary
look blending exotic woods
with minimalist modern
materials and colors. "Our
desire was to reposition the
hotel in the four-star luxury
category. Even if there are
still things to finish, especial-
ly a second phase of the
work that we must discuss

with the local authorities in
order to reach this goal, we
hope that the results are
pleasing," explained Christ-
ian Terrassoux, CEO of Pitch
Promotion, owner of the
hotel since 1997.
To help with the reposition-
ing of the hotel, its manage-
ment has been entrusted to

Christian Langlade, who has
extensive hotel management
experience. He was formerly
the director of Sandy Lane in
Barbados, as well as the Cira-
gan Palace in Istanbul, and he
was on the opening team for
La Reserve in Geneva.
Now for a tour of the fabu-
lous renovations:

. -.


- ...........


1-Opening directly into the bedroom,
the new bathrooms are the latest in
modern style.
2-Completely renovated in a minima-
list contemporary style, 11 of the 41
spacious guest rooms have lovely
views of the pool or the ocean, as well
as a private patio with teak furniture.
3-A key element in this superb reno-
vation, the pool deck was completely
rebuilt in teak, with private niches
for total relaxation. Island residents
can benefit from a special package
for 60 euros including a cocktail, a
o meal at Mango, and access to the
H pool and a chaise lounge. For 110
euros, the package also includes an
hour ofspa treatment.
4-The open-air restaurant, Mango,
has been totally redesigned and
S offers a simple, yet varied menu to
please all tastes.
5-Just steps from the pool and the
sea, the lounge-library of the Chris-
Stopher Hotel is open from 5pm-llpm
for drinks, as well as getting a taste
ofart, fashion, design, or architec-
ture by leafing through the beautiful
collection of books on the shelves.

The New Hospital Now Open!
The new hospital building original section of the hos-
pital built by Father Irenee
de Bruyn. The completed

construction, the
new building at the
De Bruyn Hospital in Gus-
tavia opened its doors on
Friday, December 4, the
same day that patients
began to be transferred to
the new facility. "There will
be an official inauguration
later, but our goal was to
transfer the patients as
quickly as possible so that
they can benefit from the
improved conditions in the
new building," explained
hospital director Pierre
Nuty on Friday.

The construction costs
totaled 3.5 million Euros
and were financed by the
FEDER (European Funds
for Regional Development),
the Collectivity of Saint
Barth, and the hospital
itself, in order to update a
facility built in 1933, which
no longer met the needs of
a modern hospital. The new
two-story building, with a
footprint of 500 square
meters, was constructed on
the foundation of former
administrative offices and
combines technical services
and a pharmacy on the first
floor, with 18 hospital beds
on the second floor.

The second phase of con-
struction should begin in
February and consists of
renovating and updating the

The infectious diseases
panel of health profes-
sionals in the Northern
Islands has issued a
pre-alert warning that
the increase in the
number of cases of
dengue fever over the
past few weeks could
indicate an epidemic in
the making. Over the
past 3 weeks, the num-
ber of weekly cases has
been superior to the
expected average, and
suggests that if this
trend continues, it
could indicate the start
of an epidemic. Vari-
ous methods of preven-
tion and spraying for
mosquitoes have gone
into effect, but visitors
to the island must pro-
tect themselves from
getting bitten. To do
so, a mosquito net pro-
vides protection for
those who do not like
air-conditioning, and
skin should be protect-
ed with bug repellent,
especially at twilight
and the early morning,
two times of the day
when mosquitoes are
the most prevalent.

the present day ultra productivity of modern agriculture.
The week will be dedicated to meetings, discoveries...and wine tasting.
The four wine makers will be present for each dinner organized around their
wines to invite you to share their passion, their philosophy, their history, and to
allow you to discover, or know better, biodynamic wines. Jean-Baptiste Barre,

Organized to benefit AFM, a French non-profit organiza-
tion that fights against genetic diseases, the 23rd Telethon
was not much ofa success. Only 97pledges were taken by
the donation center for the Northern Islands, run by the
Lions Club on the Quai Gednral de Gaulle a Gustavia, for a
total of 15,746.49 Euros at the end of the day on Saturday.
Of these 97pledges, 61 came from Saint Barth, 33 from
Saint Martin, two from France, and one from Guadeloupe.
The archery club, Francs Archers, who raise money each
year donated a little over 900 Euros, while the Saint Barth
Tennis Club in association with the Propeller Club (a Poker
group) made the largest donation: 1,640 Euros.

There's no math involved. The grid has numbers, but
nothing has to add up to anything else. You solve the
puzzle with reasoning and logic. It's fun. It's chal-
lenging. 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.
