According to the Tourism
Committee (CTTSB), 55
tourists were obliged to

post-Easter vacation were
forced to cancel their trips.
The CTTSB will issue a report
at the end of the week on the
financial effect of these can-

port, the airlines serving Saint
Barth saw 30 to 40% of their
passengers cancel their depar-
tures from the island during
the days that European air-
space was closed due to the
cloud of volcanic ash. Not
only passengers on their way
to Juliana were affected, but
also those on charters to

St Bath Weeldy n198

They set sail on Sunday,
April 18 from the Port of
Concarneau, but since
Thursday the fleet of 25
Figaro Beneteau sailboats in
the 10th edition of the
Transat ag2r, has faced a

brutal slowing down in their
progress toward St Barth,
the arrival port for this
transatlantic regatta that
takes place every two years.
The weather conditions are
forcing the 50 sailors in this

event to carefully plan their
strategies in order to arrive
first in St Barth. As a result,
the fleet that started out as a
tight group is now dispersed
across a wider area of the
Atlantic. The farthest to the

west is Miguel Danet (one
of the two Saint Barth
sailors in the race) and his
partner Damien Cloarec
(aboard Concarneau Saint
Barth), while to the east are
two former winners, Jean
Le Cam aboard Generali
and Nicolas Troussel aboard
Credit Mutule de Bretagne,
who are leading a section of
the pack. The question is if
the strategy of holding back
now will lead to winning
later. With diverging points
of view, there will be a lot
of suspense. Will those who
lead the fleet after La Palma
lead the way all the way
across the ocean to Saint
Barth? The answer will be
known in a few weeks
time... Follow the race at

The Saint Barth Interna-
tional Property Owners
Association (SBIPOA)
met at the Santa Fe restau-
rant on April 8. The special
guest for the meeting was
Bruno Magras, president of
the Collectivity of Saint
Barth. The first order of
business was the donation
of 10 Rosetta Stone com-
puter programs for learn-
ing English. These pro-
grams were donated to
Madame Lucienne Greaux,
principal of the Ecole
Sainte Marie in Colombier,
the oldest grade school on
the island. "It is our hope
that the use of these pro-
grams will help provide
future opportunities for the
students and even improve
communications among all
of us living in Saint Barth,"
said Larry O'Donnell,
president of the associa-
tion, who offered special
thanks to Dawn Drouant, a
resident of the island and

volunteer Lnglish teacher
at the school, who
researched the Rosetta
Stone programs. "If we
determine that this pro-
gram is successful, we
intend to recommend that
the association look into
setting up similar programs
at the other schools on the
Bruno Magras then
addressed the group and
spoke on such issues as the
environment, green zones,
the number of cars on the
island, dengue fever, plan-
ning for new parking lots
near the airport and across
the street from La Plage,
and the problems of pro-
viding more electricity on
the island. All of these
issues are of importance to
resident of the island as
well as the international
home owners, who hope to
maintain an ongoing dia-
logue with the president of
the COM.
