Les Voiles de Saint Barth

The First Edition Sets Sail

A fleet of 23
boats set sail
in the first
edition of Les Voiles
de Saint Barth,
which closes on
Sunday with a pic-
nic on the beach in
Colombier. The aS
boats were divided
into different cate- e r
gories: four Super
Yachts, four Clas-
sics, five in the Rac-
ing Class, nine in
and one racing mul-
ti-hull. Even if the
number of boats is
not at the level
expected by the race
organizers, who had
hoped for at least 60
boats, their spirits are high
and they hope that participa-
tion will be better in 2011:
"We virtually launched Les
Voiles de Saint Barth at the
end of last year. It usually
takes over a year to integrate
a new regatta into the sailing
calendar and attract boats
whose itineraries are set
more than a year in
advance," said Annalisa Gee,
responsible for the inscrip-
tions, during a press confer-
ence on Tuesday. But the
event seems to have an
appeal: "We have had over
100 inquiries and already
have 80 boats pre-enrolled
for 2011."

Twenty Race Options
For this first edition of the
regatta, race director Luc
Poupon came up with 20 dif-
ferent race options-from
the longest at 32 miles to the
shortest at 15 miles-to be
selected each day in keeping
with the prevailing winds.
This week the winds are pri-

marily from the northeast
with a slight shift to the east LES VOILES DE SAINT BARTH ENTRIES

Homage to "Spike"
It was with heavy hearts that
the sailors abaord Rambler,
the second largest boat in the
fleet, set sail in Les Voiles de
Saint Barth. On Monday, one
of their crew, 38 year-old
Peter "Spike" Doriean, died
in Saint Martin, before com-
ing to Saint Barth. He died
due to head wounds caused
by slipping in the bathtub in
his hotel room. Known as a
talented, professional sailor,
he had participated in many
regattas at the highest inter-
national level. The crew
made the decision to take
part in the race in homage to

The program for the 15th
annual St Barth Film Festi-
val "Cinema Caraibe"-
which takes place April 24-
30, 2010-features a selec-
tion of films and special
guests from Haiti. This is
the "natural thing to do,"
according to festival direc-
tors Ellen Lampert-Greaux
and Joshua Harrison, who
point out that the festival
was initially created to
reflect the cultural and polit-
ical landscape of the
Caribbean basin. "It was
impossible for us not to deal
with the catastrophe that
touched the people of Haiti
this year, especially as our
festival has frequently pre-
sented films examining the
difficult realities in Haiti."
Past Haitian films shown at
the festival range from
Raoul Peck's "Man By The
Shore" to "The Agrono-
mist" by Jonathan
Demme-produced in hom-
age to the assassinated jour-
nalist Jean Dominique-by
way of "Haiti Cherie" by
Claudio Del Punta, which
examines the situation of
Haitians literally reduced to
slavery on plantations in
Santo Domingo, and "The
President Has Aids," by
Arnold Antonin, a director
considered the "Haitian Ken

15* 6di ln 214-0 wa
Loach," proving that the St
Barth Film Festival is seri-
ous when it says it has an
interest in Haitian film: "We
did not modify our program
this year, we simply aug-
mented it..." Which means
that the organizers added a
special evening of Haitian
films on Monday, April 26
at the Capitainerie, featuring
the recent documentary by
Arnold Antonin, "Chronic
Of A Catastrophe Foretold:
Haiti Apocalypse Now,"
which looks at the country
before and after the January
12 earthquake. Cameraman
Camille Kharmeliaud Moi-
se, will present this 20-

E minute film
on behalf of
its filmmak-
er, as well as
his own
film, "Chi-
dm e n
Pay son."
"Mol'cTic The evening
also includes
videos made
by students

Institute in
Sa the in e
Haiti, and
presented by
Frero Pierre
and Claudel
vr lm ofO Chery.
A second
evening of Haitian film,
also in support of the school
in Jacmel, which sustained
damage in the earthquake,
will be held of Wednesday,
April 28 at AJOE, with
"Moloch Tropical," the lat-
est film by the most cele-
brated Haitian filmmaker,
Raoul Peck. The sixth fea-
ture film of this former cul-
tural minister of Haiti
(1995-1997), who is cur-
rently the president of
FEMIS (European Founda-
tion For Image and Sound
Metiers), takes a look at the
final moments of a ruler in
Haiti as a violent revolution
erupts around him: A very
political fiction film. On
Wednesday afternoon, the
festival hosts a roundtable
on the subject of: Haiti:
Looking Toward the Future.

The remainder of the pro-
gram includes the continua-
tion of an ongoing partner-
ship with Jean-Marc
Cesaire and the association,

Cine Woul6, for two
evenings of films on the
beach in Flamands. The
first, on March 27, begins
with a short film "Rose
Murray: Portrait of a Pho-
tographer" by Alex Benda-
han, followed by the
restored version of "Araya,"
an award-wining film by
Margot Benacerraf that
dates from 1959. The sec-
ond evening on the beach is
the festival's closing night
on Friday, April 30. A series
of videos are on the line-up,
including three from
Trinidad: "Jab"-about the
blue devils of Carnival-by
Alex de Verteuil, "Calypso
at Dirty Jim's" by Pascale
Obolo, and Christopher
Laird's short documentary
on 15 years of the St Barth
Film Festival. Plus "Oasis
Surf Generation," a film
made last year at the
Tamarindo surf spot on the
Pacific Coast of Costa Rica,
featuring Eliott Ivarra, a
member of the Reefer Surf
Club in St Barth.
In addition to the evenings
on the beach, there are also
three film screenings at
AJOE: "El Benny" by
Cuban filmmaker Jorge
Luis Sanchez on the open-
ing night, April 24, fol-
lowed by "Les 16 de Basse
Pointe" by Camille
Mauduech, whose film
revisits a crime from 1948:
the assassination by 36
strikes of a machete of Guy
de Fabrique, the white Cre-
ole overseer on a sugar
plantation in Martinique.
The third film at AJOE is
"Orpailleur" by Marc Bar-
rat, a feature film set in
French Guyana.

In early April, Sylvain
Noel joined forces with
Bernard and his son
Julien, taking on the
role of chef at the Wall
House in Gustavia.
Son of restaurateurs, and
with ten years experience
working in the United
States, from various
establishments in New
York to the Panetiere in
Rye and Zinc in Lennox,
MA, Sylvain Noel now
brings his talents to Saint
Barth. He has already
established a new menu
at the Wall House, infused
with interesting flavors,
primarily from the Mediter-
ranean, with accents from
Asia as well.
Enticing aromas and tex-
tures mix and match, such
as lightly fried calamari

In keeping with its
favorites, the Wall House

choice of grilled fish and
meat made to order on the
rotisserie located near the
entrance to the restaurant.
