8 ALLATSEA.NET APRIL 2013 Editors Log I think its fair to say that God smiles on fools and sailors. When my wife and I rst went cruising we made some terrible mistakes and one of them almost cost us the boat and our lives. We were entering the port of Newhaven on the south coast of England, bound down channel for sunnier climes. A rising westerly gale and a seven meter boat do not mix, so nipping into the shelter of Newhaven seemed like the sensible thing to do. In those days, I was paranoid about arriving in port with the boat looking smart; everything squared away shipshape and Bristol fashion. I blame it on a repressed childhood because really Im a bit of a slob. When we arrived off the harbor the wind was already strong but like a fool I dropped all the sails and secured them in a harbor stow. To enter Newhavens inner harbor you rst travel the length of a towering 320m long open concrete frame pier. Our boat was powered by a six horsepower outboard motor in a well in the cockpit and halfway down the length of the pier the darn thing quit. The angry beam seas saw their moment and, driven by the wind, hurled us toward the barnacle-encrusted legs of the pier. It happened so quickly that I had no chance of setting a sail and, even if I had, the pier was now so close that I would never gain enough speed to bring the boat through the eye of the wind and tack away from danger. We were going under the pier and my wife and I knew it. By now the yacht was rolling on her beam-ends and each dip to starboard brought the masthead closer to the boardwalk atop the pier. Years of planning, scrimping and saving and it was about to end in shipwreck because I wanted a tidy boat. Now, dont go thinking that while this was going on, I had given up, no, I was pulling on the outboards starter cord like a man demented, shouting and screaming for something to happen. And something did! As the rigging brushed the concrete, the motor started. The tiny outboard roared like a lion and pushed us, one painful inch at a time, out from under that terrible structure. I was sobbing with relief. So, what has this story got to do with the Caribbean? Well, Im a great observer and I love to watch boats maneuvering. Some people have an amazing amount of skill; they read the situation and are prepared for most eventualities, others, however, are like me entering Newhaven: Wind and seas on the beam, a reef to leeward, engine running and the sail covers on. War is a terrible thing and with so much of it going on, we are seeing more and more disabled servicemen and womGary E. Brown, Editor en returning to their home countries shattered in body and mind. As a peace loving sailing magazine, with an old hippy as editor, I was rather wary when writer Carol Bareuther came to me with the story of SUDS. Then I read her article. Soldiers Undertaking Disabled Scuba or SUDS, are helping rebuild shattered lives and they are using the ocean to do it. This is remarkable work. We all know that life in the Caribbeansailing, swimming, just being hereis powerful medicine and SUDS are tapping into this resource with astounding results. Whether you believe the current slew of armed conicts are right or wrong, one thing is for certain, there are some incredibly brave people in the world. Rebuilding your life after battleeld trauma calls for strength and courage and some people dont make it. On page 63, read about the brave men and women who are rebuilding their lives with the help of volunteer doctors and the Caribbean Sea. SHIPSHAPE AND BRISTOL FASHION See you on the water! Fenders at the ready but how long would it take to hoist sail if the engine quit?

16 ALLATSEA.NET APRIL 2013 News CARIBBEAN NEWS A BRIEF LOOK INTO THE HAPPENINGS OF OUR WORLD Joyon smashes own Columbus Route recordFrench single-hander Francis Joyon, onboard the maxi trimaran IDEC sailed across the Columbus Route nish line off San Salvador in the Bahamas at 04h 57m 30s GMT on 15th February 2013. With a race time of 8d 16h 07m 05s, Joyon shaved more than twenty-eight hours off his own record set in 2008. Over the 3884 miles of the Great Circle route, the theoretical route between Cadiz and San Salvador, via Gran Canaria, he sailed at an average speed of 18.66 knots (distance actually sailed 4379.5 miles at an average speed of 21.04 knots). Arriving in San Salvador, Joyon put thoughts of Champagne and celebrations on hold and, having validated his race time with the ofcial representative of the World Speed Sailing Record Council, hoisted sail, trimmed his gennaker and set off again to make his way to the French West Indies.

Captain Cipriano died of what appears to be natural causes, although at press time the Coroner was yet to make a nal determination. At this point, it is believed he suffered a heart attack or stroke, and fell into the water alongside his boat. His daughter, son, and their spouses visited Puerto Rico for several days to settle his affairs and y his remains and two of his favorite birds back to the U.S. There were not many dry eyes in Salinas Harbor as a ships bell sounded and many around the bay joined the family watching his classic Ericson ketch Far Out sail away from the docks for the rst time in nearly 30 years without Captain Joey at the helm.
18 ALLATSEA.NET APRIL 2013 News YACHT CLUB & FISHING CLUB NEWS SHARE YOUR HAPPENINGS WITH THE CARIBBEAN COMMUNITYPETITE CALIVIGNY YACHT CLUB Grenada Club to Host More Hobie Cat Match RacesThe Petite Calivigny Yacht Club (PCYC) is the newest yacht club on the island of Grenada. It was established in 2010 and is headquartered at Le Phare Bleu Marina on the islands south coast. Formed by a group of boating enthusiasts to support yachting events and water sports, particularly in the Calivigny Bay area, the club organizes small boat races and other water-related events that offer sailors of all skill levels and age groups a friendly environment in which to learn more about boating, and also an opportunity to participate in water sport activities. One of the most popular events hosted by the PCYC is their Hobie Cat match races, which have been held once a year for the past three years. All have been successful, lots of fun, and all have gone off like clockwork. Even Mother Nature couldnt dampen the racing spirit at their most recent races on January 20th when unseasonably light winds caused overly calm race conditions; the Club simply rescheduled the days activities and the competition was completed the following weekend. Despite the weather, the PCYC was delighted to see a lot of new faces at the event, both racers and spectators, and were even more pleased with the record number of race participants. Feeling optimistic due to the increasing popularity and turnout at this and previous races, the PCYC has now committed to hosting more Hobie Cat match races. Weve been encouraged by the increasing interest that our Hobie Cat races have generated in Grenada, stated club Commodore, John Whitsett, at the end of the races, and as a result, Id like to ofcially announce that the PCYC now plans to host two Hobie Cat Match Races in Grenada every year, in January and July. Although small by most standards (the last race had 16 racers), the PCYCs Hobie Cat match races have been growing in popularity over the years. Another source of pride to the Club is that their races bring together a very diverse group of people from local residents to island holidaymakers and visiting cruisers and racers ages are varied as well; mostly from youth to adult, but a few old salty-dog seniors bear proof to the fact that there is no age limit to having fun. The PCYC welcomes new racers as well as new members.

20 ALLATSEA.NET APRIL 2013Contrast this with your average work-as-you-go circumnavigation. These frugal circumnavigators spend, on average, around seven years on their Big Fat Circleand are, by denition, forced to interact with the locals far more often. This is a huge advantage. Sailing offshore, as delightful as it is, is only half the story. The other half is the people you meet. Here, on a person-to-person level, the work-as-you-EARNING TO SAIL, SAILING TO EARN MAKING BIG BUCKS WHILE HAVING MEGA FUN ON A SMALL BOAT BY CAPN FATTY GOODLANDERSailing Humor Many long-term cruisers save up a large pile of cashand then slowly spend it while sailing the world. Hooray for them! However, most of us lifelong sea gypsies dont have a large pile of cash or even a modestlysized one. We only have a small boat and large dream. Despite this, we manage to circumnavigate. How? By working as we go. This is neither easy nor quick but it can be fun. Believe it or not, there are actually advantages of being time-rich and penny-poor. Many speed circs only take two yearswhich is barely enough time to explore the Caribbeanlet alone, Planet Ocean. Well-funded circumnavigators often own a lot of stuff back home and thus spend a lot of time servicing their moneyrather than enjoying it. With surplus money, you have many optionsperhaps, occasionally, too many. Plus, since you can do anything, you feel you should always be having a swell timedespite the fact that money and fun and contentment have little relationship to each other. Also, theres a tendency to return home so often that you never really leave it mentally, and your circ ends up an extended vacation from reality rather than your reality. Perhaps the worse aspect of a pre-funded circ is watching your pile of money shrink, shrink some more, and shrink further. Oh, pity the poor yachtsmanno matter how well-heeled his Topsiders! Fattys Book Signing poster from 2012
APRIL 2013 ALLATSEA.NET 21go skipper has the edge. It is easy to understand a culture when youre breaking rocks with its sweating members less easy when you are merely hiring them to wash your clothes, drive your taxi, or remove your barnacles. Too frequent jet-travel isnt merely bad for the environment; its bad for the cruise as well. Picture how proud Josh Slocum must have felt sailing Spray back into New Bedfordand contrast that to how hed feel if hed returned to Boston every three months to shake the money tree. The sea gypsy life is, at least as we Goodlanders practice it, pretty simple. We haveor wantnothing ashore. Our only xed bill is $250 per year for our Sailmail connection. (In the Med we were forced to get liability insurance for $350 per.) We started out our rst circumnavigation with $5,000, and returned with zero. Knowing how easy earning money would be while undersail, we started our second circ with $4,000 and returned with $46,000. Thats rightwe saved $42,000 while circumnavigating the oceans of the world over the course of seven fun-lled, very eventful yearsand had more fun than most. Was it easy? No, it was not. I wrestle with my pen 20 hours a week, and Carolyn wrestles with how to make money drip out of that same penalso for 20 hours per week. (Invoicing, photo-editing, book-formatting, etc.) Thus, we put in a 40 hour week aboard, 52 weeks a year. This takes tremendous will powerespecially when my wayward friends are always buzzing by in their dinghies asking if Id like to go diving for lobster, yacht racing, guitar playing, windsurng, kite ying, or rum-guzzling. The good news is that I can earn my living anywhere I gothe bad news is that I have to! Part of the equation is, of course, living inexpensively. You have to be frugal. Forget I deserve it. Instead, embrace squeezing Abe Lincoln so hard he cries. This is relatively easy on a yacht in Chagos where we spent four months without spending a single penny, since there is nothing ashoreno government, no buildings, no people, no problems. None! But, regardless of how little you spend, you have to earn some money along the wayif you didnt bring much in the rst place. One common method is chartering-as-you-gothe legality of which varies country-to-country. Many low-key, under-the-radar yachties in the Pacic just make sure they arent taking a locals joband then proceed with caution. (Warning: a USCG captains license and various other pieces of paper are required on a US registered vessel whether on-or-off-the-books.) Often, it isnt the yachtie who makes the rst move. They just sail into a small, remote island with a large resortand
22 ALLATSEA.NET APRIL 2013the resort owner asks them if theyd like to day-charter (as all the local boats are open shing vessels). If the skipper is wise and desires to stay awhile, he hires a popular local kid for a deck hand and jobs out the catering tooso the locals win as well as the resort. Everyone gets what they want, especially the customers. There are no losersonly winners. Does the yachtie make a fortune after paying his booking fee, his deckhand, and for the catering? No, but they replenish the cruising kitty to add another year or two onto their circwhich is what it is all about, from the cruising sailors standpoint. David Wegman sailed around the world on an engineless schooner while spending only pennies. He sold paintings, traded molas (from San Blas), and even accomplished amazing feats of island-style construction to earn his way. His motto is: No one ever starved to death sailing around the world. Thats true. You might be hungrybut if you are cruising in the Third World where a billion people earn less than two dollars a day, well, food is cheap. It might not be the food you wantbut, if you are truly hungry, it is the food you need. I will take that statement a step further: I have never ever met anyone who was arrested for working or earning money in a foreign countrywho had not stopped immediately upon notication. It is the scofaws that get into troublethose pugnacious folks that sneer, this is a US government documented vessel, and you cant tell me Those are the guys who end up in jail for working in a foreign countryas well they should. But if you just fold your tent and fadeusually, nothing happens. Dont get me wrong. I am not advocating breaking the law. I am merely stating the facts, and the facts are that everyone has to put food on their tableand, as crimes go, working for a living isnt a particularly terrible one. Of course, theres no reason to ever go ashore. Ive earned many freedom chips by working on other yachts: doing electrical installation, plumbing repair, and wood butchery. Arent there marine electricians overseas? Absolutely! But not in Minerva or Beverage reefsand none who are willing to work for a pittance, like I am. Some vessels have ippable canvas lifeline nameboardswhich have the boat name on one side, and JackTar-of-all-Trades on the other. One electronics expert in Sint Maarten told me, People pay me $80 an hour to RTFM (read the #&%@#%& manual) that came with their marine electronics. The answers are almost always thereit just takes some time and literacy to drag them out. So, thats what I do. I read the manual until it says, the red wire connects to the positive side of the battery and everyone thinks Im a genius. Carolyn makes Biminis and dodgers with her trusty Pfaff sewing machineas well as minor sail repairs. (Shes such a push-overI think shes xed as many sails for free as shes charged for.) Are you an expert at something? Id never tell some nerd in Silicon Valley that I was a computer whizbecause I am not. But I know how to install Quickbooks, defrag a diskdrive, and de-porn a clogged hard driveall of which are considered minor miracles in Fiji or Madagascar. Often, a resort buys a Wi routerand cant install it (mostly) because they cant read the manual. If you can read Englishthis, in-and-of-itself, is often a service worth paying for. Am I recommending you pretend to be a brain surgeon because you can get away with it in the Third World? No, I am not. What I am saying is that many people in Africa who can afford an iPhone5, cant gure out how to Bluetooth or Wi them to their corporate networkand if you can, youve got something to sell. There are lots of ways to earn money offshore. During my rst circ, 2000 to 2005, I produced a weekly radio show called the Circumnavigators Report that was broadcast via WVWI in the Caribbean. How? By Fedexing back the tapes. Four times a year, Carolyn (yes, shes a hard worker and stern master) would say, Wednesday is radio day, Fatty! Id groan, and make sure I was well rested. Then shed run 14 people/guests/friends through the boat for 40 minutes each, and hand me an index card with topics and suggested questions just prior to doing so. Thus, Id do 14 radio shows in one day, and shed spend another day editing and packaging up the tapesand wed get a weekly paycheck deposited into our account 52 times a year. (Amazingly, I had the radio show for over 17 delightful years.) The station was sold twice. And when I nally came in to visit the corporate ofces during my second circ, nobody knew who I wasand kept insisting that I wasnt there. No, mon! Dat boy, he sailing de islands of de Pacic! Dat true! He gone, long gone, me son! Next month Fatty takes a look at even more creative ways of earning under sail Ed Capn Fatty Goodlander has lived aboard for 53 of his 60 years, and has circumnavigated twice.

You can buy the latest and greatest cell phone, computer or computerized gadget only to be told a few weeks later that its obsolete and a new super model is out with all kinds of new apps. Uuuurm, apps means mobile applications you can install on your latest gadget. Terminology is fun isnt it? There are iPads, iPhones, iPods and apps to be installed like iTunes, iMovies, iLife, iBooks etc. No, an iPad is not a sanitary device, a hard drive and a oppy do not pertain to sex and a download has nothing to do with bowel movements. Equally, a dongle is not necessarily sexually attracted to a widget. Now, the iGadgets are all part and parcel of the Apple Computer Empire, but surprise, surprise there are now Blackberries, Oranges and Raspberries (nothing to do with passing wind, although by now you might think Im full of hot air). The rst two ingredients of the hi-tech fruit salad are cell phones, while the rather appetizing name Raspberry Pi refers to a tiny computer used for teaching purposes. Before you rush out and buy a Raspberry Pi make sure theres not a Strawberry Souf on the horizon. The other day I checked with Charlie who has always been in favor of the KISS (Keep It Simple Stupid) principle of boating. I was surprised to discover that Charlie has fallen victim to the hi-tech revolution. Charlie has always had a small portable GPS for conrming his latitude and longitude, but that was all. However, he recently weakened to include in his gadget inventory a Kindle e-reader. Great, he said. Its sometimes hard to get good books in the islands, but with this the book world is at my doorstep and many classics are free! His enthusiasm was unexpected. The next time we met it was just after Christmas. I got a smart phone, he said. And then I got a tablet. Now I can tether the smart phone to the tablet when I get a hotspot. Sounds like youre going through menopause, I said. Hey, its all part of the textual revolution, replied Charlie. And that was it. Another good friend from the 70s had been consumed by modernity; swallowed up by the digital age and sucked into cyber space all in the name of instant gratication and convenience. But then there was a sudden about face. It was just the other day when I saw Charlie in a veritable state of stress. Its all the wires, he moaned. Theyre driving me crazy. I need an adaptor, a charger for every device, ear phones, USB cables, converters theyre all different; all have different connections and all are the same color. Its a nightmare. I can never nd the cable I need. What happened to the KISS philosophy, I said.

You would think that grinding winches and pumping the head would keep you strong and rm, but it does take more. There are two great hurdles to improving your tness: Getting started and staying motivated. For many, staying t before living on a boat was a matter of going to the gym, but for the most part this is not possible when living aboard. You will need to reorient your tness plan to what is feasible in, on and around your boat. Look at a t cruiser and ask them what they do. I have been watching and talking with cruisers for years and this is what I found out. The easiest exercise is something that you like to do and dont necessarily do just for exercise. Walking and swimming are great examples. Set aside a specic time to do your workout or walk and make that the priority; rst thing in the morning works best for me. Have a routine that is easy to follow, but not deadly boring. Find a buddy and make a date to walk, swim or do yoga. Jazz up your workout with music that energizes you. Set a goal for the day or week and review your goals. Keep track of your progress (both the improved ability to do the workout and the loss of weight or girth). I also use a timer for my sit ups keeps me honest. When I can, I read yoga and tness magazines to give me new ideas and motivation. Remember that doing something is better than nothing. Many folks do calisthenics, Pilates or yoga on their boats. I have a space just large enough to roll out a yoga mat where I can do my morning routine.

I have also used a variety of exercise programs on my Kindle and my tablet. I like to swim when the water quality and boat trafc permit, and many people do water aerobics using a swim noodle and this is a very fun social activity. If you are new to yoga, I recommend nding a DVD or a book to get you started. Kim Hess has addressed the difculty of adapting yoga poses and practice to a boat in her book Yoga Onboard. Kim also has a DVD, so you can have guided practice on your boat or you can nd Kim and take classes in Tortola this winter. You can contact Kim at her website: http://www.tropicyoga.com. The Yoga journal website (http://www.yogajournal.com) also has videos to download, instructions on how to do poses and suggestions for home practice. I have yoga socks that have sticky soles and allow me to do some yoga poses without a mat. Ideally you should warm up, workout and cool down with stretches. Rebecca on Zero to Cruising demonstrates a great warm up and workout at: http://www. strengthplus.ca/8-count-bodybuilder/. Dont go from cockpit potato to tness enthusiast without getting cleared by a doctor. If exercising on your boat is not your thing try taking long walks and exploring the island.

There was drama right from the start, Tony Todds 100ft Maxi Liara was dismasted. Two tacks and then the rig came down, we had barely sailed 600 metres instead of 600 miles, shrugged devastated crewmember Matt Curthoys. It went at deck level to leeward, luckily no one was hurt but we were all gutted not to do the race. The rst yacht to nish was Peter Aschenbrenners ballistic 63ft trimaran, Paradox The American multihull with the legendary Cam Lewis on board scorched around the 600mile track in an astonishing 40-hour sprint, just 11 minutes outside the course record set by ORMA 60, Region Guadeloupe in 2009. Paradox is two tons heavier than an ORMA 60 and the rig is 18ft shorter, to come so close to beating the record was a big surprise but the conditions were absolutely perfect, it was a wild ride but we were perfectly in control from start to nish, said Aschenbrenner.

ICAP Leopard completed the course in just under 46 hours. Hap Fauths JV72, Bella Mente was next, but the Mini Maxi did not win after time correction. The RORC Race Team gave Ron OHanley the good news that his Cookson 50, Privateer had beaten Hap Fauths American JV72, Bella Mente by just over 22 minutes on corrected time to top the leader board for IRC Overall. Privateer s win was made sweeter by the fact that last year the team sailed an epic race only to come through the nish line and nd that they had been docked a 10% penalty for a starting infringement. Elated, but relieved there is not another leg! exclaimed Ron OHanley dockside in Antigua. It is a fantastic race, the RORC do a phenomenal job and we are all delighted to be back here again for the third time. After last year we knew there was some unnished business and we put that away, which was very sweet.
APRIL 2013 ALLATSEA.NET 35 Shortly after Privateer s emotional return to Antigua the mighty schooner Adela skippered by Greg Perkins, returned to the dock. Their IRC corrected time of 3d 6h 26s secured their win in the Spirit of Tradition Class, Superyacht Class and third overall in IRC. Adela had an exceptional race, worthy of their podium place for the overall title. On Saturday morning, after ve days at sea, The Royal Armoured Corp Offshore Race Team, racing Swan 48, Patriot skippered by Capt. Richard Luckyn-Malone, crossed the nish line, as the last yacht to complete the course. As the vintage Swan entered Falmouth Harbour a dozen or more Superyachts heralded their arrival with a cacophony of horns. The British Army team were greeted in true RORC Caribbean 600 style: Three cheers, cold beers, hot rotis and a massive crowd of well wishers greeting them. Packed with competitors, friends and family, Antigua Yacht Club was lled beyond capacity as close to a thousand revellers gathered for the RORC Caribbean 600 Prize Giving. Royal Ocean Racing Club CEO, Eddie Warden Owen opened the proceedings and welcomed the Honourable Winston Williams, Minister of Sport for Antigua and Barbuda, to address the crowd. In a rousing speech, the crowd joined the Minister in hailing the 5th RORC Caribbean 600 as a tremendous success. A partisan crowd cheered every team going up to the stage to collect their prizes and every competing yacht was presented with a decanter of rum engraved with their name.

36 ALLATSEA.NET APRIL 2013 Racing Circuit SAN JUAN INTERNATIONAL REGATTA STRONG COMPETITION AND A NEW CLASS Sailors from six islands took home trophies from the 12th San Juan International Regatta (SJIR). The February regatta hosted by Club Nautico de San Juan welcomed over 140 sailors in 102 boats racing in ten classes. Conditions proved perfect with generally sunny skies and winds blowing under ten knots the rst day and gusting to nearly 20 knots on the nal day of competition. True to reputation, the SJIR Race Committee ran as many as 13 to 16 races over three days for the dinghy classes and seven races for the newly-added CSA spinnaker class. What is so good is the participation of sailors from so many islands and in so many classes. It really levels the playing eld and creates a great competition, says regatta chairman, Luis Fabre. It is also wonderful to welcome the Otra Kosa sails in the CSA Spinnaker ClassPHOTO: CARLOS LEE
APRIL 2013 ALLATSEA.NET 37 rst-time addition of the CSA Spinnaker class. This has added a whole new dimension to the regatta. In the nine-boat CSA class, it was Puerto Ricos Julio Reguero helming his J/105, Umakua who won. Jaime Torres aboard his Melges 32, Smile and Wave nished second and Sergio Sagramosos J/105, Lazy Dog third. There were two keelboat classes. Puerto Ricos Keki Figueroa won the six-boat IC24 class by one point over second place nisher and fellow islander, Robbie Ramos. Fernando Irizzary rounded out third place. In the J/24 class, Puerto Ricos Jose Fullana on KQLO placed rst with Jaime Balzac driving Razzmatazz into second and Francisco Levy on Blow Me third. The Optimist dinghy represented the largest one-design eet of the regatta with 60 boats. The BVIs Sam Morrell won the 13 to 15-year-old Red Fleet and the Advanced Optimist overall, followed by the USVIs Scott McKenzie second and Paige Clarke third. The conditions were generally good, but it was sometimes shifty, explains Morrell. The Lasers started before us, so my strategy was to look ahead right before our start to see how the wind was affecting them. In the 11 to 12-year-old Blue Fleet, Antiguas Rocco Falcone led with fellow islander, Louis Bavay second and the BVIs Thad Lettsome third. The winds here are just like where I train at home at the Antigua Yacht Club. That helped, says Falcone, who receives expert coaching not only from the AYC sailing director, but also from his father, Carlo Falcone, of Caccia Ala Volpe fame. St. Maartens Nathan Smith won the age ten (and under) White Fleet with a sizable lead over fellow competitors, Mateo Di Blasi and Julian van den Driessche, of the USVI, who nished second and third, respectively. Antiguas Daniel Smith championed the 23-boat beginner Optimist Green class. Puerto Ricos Mauricio Porrata nished second and Jose Guillermo Mendez third. In the Laser 4.7 Class, it was the BVIs Matthew Oliver who triumphed. The race for second was a keen one with Puerto Ricos Julio Rojo handing the BVIs Mollee Donovan third. Though both tied in points, Rojo ended with a greater number of rst place nishes. Puerto Ricos Pedro Fernandez led the Laser Radial Class with fellow islander, Agustin-Lazaro-Lugo, second and St. Martins Rhne Findlay, third. In the Sunsh class, Puerto Ricos Gregg Fyffe won with nearly awless rst place nishes. For full results, visit: www.nauticodesanjuan.com Report by Carol M. Bareuther

Big kudos indeed considering it was organized in just four months. This year marks the 20th year of keelboat racing in Grenada. Last September, however, there was great uncertainty about the future of the Keelboat Regatta when the Grenada Sailing Festival announced its suspension. Fortunately, a group of enthusiasts appeared, a new board was established, and with a new identity to mark a new era of international yacht racing in Grenada, Grenada Sailing Week was formed. The Festivals decision to suspend the keelboat regatta was much to the dismay of every sailor in Grenada and beyond, stated Marc DeCaul, Chairman of Grenada Sailing Week.

APRIL 2013 ALLATSEA.NET 39simply had to nd a way to keep the races going. Thankfully, due to the devotion of this board and its small group of hardworking volunteers, local and international yachtsmen were again able to Sail de Spice in Grenada. Despite its early drama and abbreviated timeline, this years race series was bigger than ever with additional races pushing the total up to ten races over four days. Twenty-eight boats from ten countries, crewed by sailors from many more nations, saw top international talent compete against those from the Caribbean Islands. The boats themselves ranged from a 16ft modied Laser Stratos to a Swan 53. The regatta kicked off with an adrenaline-charged day of racing along Grenadas south coast. Big seas and reported winds gusting over 30 knots provided sailors with challenging conditions and great stories, but also breakages, torn sails, and bruised bodies. Weather challenges continued through subsequent days as racers experienced lighter winds and occasional rain, and the race committee moved marks and recalculated courses to accommodate uctuating winds. Overall, though, the weather and courses produced superb racing and demonstrated why Grenada is considered one of the best racing destinations in the Caribbean. Competition in Racing Class was erce, with boats often neck and neck as they approached marks and nish lines. Peter Peakes Slippery was the one to beat this year; in every race she set off at a blistering pace, as if daring all others to catch me if you can. Positions chopped and changed on a daily basis and no two races in the whole ten-race series showed the same results. But in the end it was Slippery who took the rst place trophy in Racing Class, and was announced this years overall race winner. In second place was last years champion, Lost Horizon and Category 5 took third. In Cruising One, returning champion Peter Morris took an early lead on Jaguar although Rapajam gave him a run for his money. No stranger to the podium, having placed rst in Cruising One the past two years, Jaguar retained rst place honours. As one crewman said: Nobody can tame the cat! Second place went to Rapajam with Eagles Wings in third. Grenadas Robbie Yearwood with Island Water Worlds Die Hard another returning champion and last years over-

Last but not least, RaVi placed rst in the Fun Fleet, followed by X-Strato and Patronus But the fun didnt end when the racing nished. Each night racers gathered at Port Louis Marina where the atmosphere was perfect for liming, race-day stories, and partaking of food, drink, and nightly musical entertainment. Thanks to the generosity of a stellar line-up of sponsors, there were ample prizes for racers as well. With party themes like Pirate Dress Up, Face Painting and the ever popular Mount Gay Red Cap, there was denitely a feeling of fun and frivolity in the air. Even on Lay Day, it was all-aboard Grenadas Discovery Train down to Grand Anse Beach, where racers experienced the ip side of racing in Grenada: The Sailing Festivals funlled Traditional Workboat Regatta. In the end, Grenada Sailing Week: Camper & Nicholsons Race Series 2013 was declared a resounding success. As for the future of Grenada Sailing Week, Chairman DeCaul wrapped up by saying, We learned a lot this year, we have much to do, but we now have 12 months to put together an even better event. Watch for us next year as were here to stay! Connie Martin is a world traveler who is currently exploring the Island of Spice. 2013 G RENADA SAILING WEEK RACE WINNERSRACING CLASS1.

42 ALLATSEA.NET APRIL 2013 Racing Circuit With a awless performance from start to nish, 24-year-old Virgin Islands sailor Taylor Caneld did not lose a race en route to a dominating victory in the fth running of the Budget Marine Match Racing Cup sailed February 26th. Caneld and his stellar crewfour-time Canadian Olympian Richard Clarke, and accomplished Caribbean sailor Mark Plaxtonwent undefeated in seven races during the early round-robin qualifying tournament, and then dispatched fellow Virgin Islander Cy Thompson in two straight races in the best-of-three nals to earn the winners purse of $5,000.CANFIELD DOMINATES IN ST. MAARTEN BUDGET MARINE MATCH RACING CUP 2013 Runner-up Thompson took the second-place prize of $2,000. In the petit nal, last years Budget Marine Match Racing champion Colin Rathbun of the B.V.I. beat Russian Eugeny Nikiforov to earn the third-place check of $1,000. The fth edition of the event, which kicked off a festival of sailing culminating with the 33rd running of the St. Maarten Heineken Regatta, attracted the strongest eet of match racers in the series growing history. The eight skippers included Ukrainian sailor Rodion Luka, a 2004 Olympic silver medalist; professional sailor Anthony Tonks Kotoun, another Virgin Islander; Lorenz Mueller Mega yachts look on as teams fight it out at the Budget Marine Match Racing CupPHOTO: BOB GRIESER

However, despite the world-class eld of competitors, the day belonged to Caneld, the former Boston College star who is currently ranked 8th in the ISAF Match Race Rankings and serves as the director of the Chicago Match Race Center. Ive been match racing for six or seven years now so Im getting accustomed to it, he said. I usually got off the line pretty well, hit the shifts and stayed in the puffs. My crew did a great job of keeping me in phase and the rest was easy from there. Caneld was also quick to heap praise upon his tactician and mainsheet trimmer, Clarke, and Plaxton, who handled the jib. Richard was in charge of the tactics and was on top of it. Mark did a good job on jib trim and keeping us honest with boat speed and weight placement in the boat, which is really crucial in these centerboard boats. Theyre really tippy so thats really important. It was nice sailing with the kid, said Clarke, smiling. I was just trying to keep up with him and not slow him down. Nobody slowed Caneld down in the ten round-robin ights that determined the four sailors who advanced to the championship nals. Both Thompson and Rathbun had identical scores of ve wins and two losses after the preliminary rounds, but Thompson advanced to the nals on the strength of his victory over Rathbun earlier in the day. All in all, it was a resounding day for the Virgin Islanders in the eet. A bunch of guys-Anthony Kotoun and Cy Thompsonwere from my hometown (of St. Thomas), said Caneld. So that kind of rekindled a ame. I grew up sailing with Cy, and went to school with him. So it was cool to sail in the nals together with my best buddy. There were just a lot of good guys out there. And the conditions were very unique (in Simpson Bay). Youve got the mountain that the wind drops down off of so its very shifty and squirrely. You have to make the best of the situation when youre behind and keep ghting because there are always lanes for passing. Perhaps thats true, but rarely, if ever, was Caneld seriously behind. Looking ahead, he has plans for both his $5,000 check, and his future. Well have a pretty good night tonight, he said, and hopefully well be back next year. Maybe then Caneld will actually lose a race in the Budget Marine Match Racing Cup. But as he proved on the racecourse, you might not wish to bet against him. Nobody slowed Caneld down in the ten roundrobin ights that determined the four sailors who advanced to the championship nals.

44 ALLATSEA.NET APRIL 2013 Fishing Hard work and the skill to catch almost every sh that bit earned the team aboard the 45ft Hatteras, Exile the top boat prize in the Budget Marine Spice Island Billsh Tournament (BMSIBT), held January 23rd to 26th out of the Grenada Yacht Club. We caught a total of six sailsh and one white marlin, explains Exile s New Jersey, USA-based owner and one of its anglers, Dr. Frank Pettisani. We only missed one sail in four days of shing and caught all the rest. Fifty boats and 255 anglers competed in the 44th edition of the BMSIBT. This marks the fourth year in a row the event welcomed over 50 boats, making this one of the largest shing tournaments in the Southern Caribbean. Grenada has a great reputation for excellent big game shing, says Pettisani. What really attracted me was the shot at multiple species of billsh blue marlin, white marlin, sailsh and especially the chance at a spearsh. Exile paraded out through St. Georges Carenage with the rest of the eet in the tournaments traditional Bimini start marked by the ring of a cannon. They headed 17 miles offshore to an area known locally as the hump or button. We realized there were many places to catch sh and the majority of the shing was better inshore at the 3,000ft contour, Pettisani explains. But, with our particular program of shing, we wanted to target the edges of that offshore structure.BUDGET MARINE SPICE ISLAND BILLFISH TOURNAMENT BY CAROL M.

Meanwhile, Wahoo from Trinidad & Tobago, took an early lead with two blue marlin releases, while ZuZu out of Grenada, released three sailfish for second place based on time of catches. Junior angler Brian Williams enjoyed a fantastic birthday present by catching one of these sailfish off ZuZu which ultimately won him the Top Junior prize. Day two, the shing was slower aboard Exile yet the teams catch moved them up to second place on the scoreboard by days end. We caught a sailsh after a few hours of shing and did not have another bite till late in the day when we caught another sail to give us two, explains Pettisani. Gud Tym from Trinidad & Tobago, the tournaments 2011 Top Boat winner, enjoyed an awesome day. They jumped into rst place with the catch and release of a blue marlin, white marlin and two sailsh to win the Grand Slam Prize. The third and nal day of shing started with an early morning sailsh release for Exile We didnt have another bite until almost lines out, says Pettisani. Thats when a white marlin came up on the long rigger and my angling partner, Spencer Scharf, was able to hook and hold it for our last release. Not only did Exile win Top Boat, but Scharfs catch and release of four sailsh and one white marlin earned him Top Angler. Real Extreme from St. Lucia, released two blue marlins and nished the tournament in third place overall, while Gud Tyme ended second. In total, the eet released 25 blue marlin, eight white marlin, 43 sailsh, plus 12 dolphin (mahi-mahi), 11 tuna and eight wahoo. Exile shes year-round in tournaments throughout the Caribbean Islands, says Pettisani. We are always looking for team members to join us.

Its a hot discussion amongst cruisers. Just like those other considerations: Sailboat or power boat? Water maker or not? Solar panels, wind generator, gas generator or all three? Around Cape Horn or through the Panama Canal? Its all a matter of preference. Boat owners will defend their choice and have many viable reasons why a cat is better than a mono or vice versa. Of course, your own boat is the best one out there and you wouldnt want anything else, right? Or is that a tad subjective? My husband Mark and I used to own a 36-foot monohull. It was an Islander Freeport and we were located in San Francisco where we spent eight months getting her xed up and ready to go cruising. She felt homey, had loads of storage space, decent water and fuel capacity, and we could stock up on food, drinks and dog food until we ran out of money. She was as dog friendly as a monohull could be, with three big steps down into the saloon, a ip down transom for easy dinghy access and life line netting. But, she heeled, as monohulls do, and rolled in less than at anchorages. Everything had to be stowed securely before leaving port, getting to the engine under the oor boards was a pain, she was quite heavy and sluggish and with her long keel, had a hard time going in reverse. Three days into our big adventure south, we put her up for sale. That brings us to the characteristics of a catamaran. They used to be very expensive and they still cost more than comparably sized monohulls, but the prices have dropped some and they are more available. They have become popular, especially the ones over 40-feet, which have more conveniences and larger tanks than their little sisters. I cant speak for those comfy giants; we have a 35-foot Fountaine Pajot catamaran, which ts into the lower end cost and length wise. But we love her for obvious, and less obvious, reasons and she has been our oating home and transport towards adventure since June 2007. Some of the better known advantages and attractions of a catamaran are its speed, light weight, shallow draft,
48 ALLATSEA.NET APRIL 2013and alone time when required. Then there are two engines. Advantage or not? With twice the maintenance and the cost for parts, we still see our twin engines as a positive attribute. Maneuvering especially while docking is very easy and we always have another engine to compare it to when something breaks or doesnt work properly. In emergencies, we could even get away using one engine. Its good to have a spare. What is better: a catamaran or a monohull? As with many things in life, I would not call one better than the other. I call them different. The choice is personal and depends on what people want in a boat and a cruising life. Another reasons we traded the monohull for a catamaran was our dogs. They could not get used to the heeling of the boat and were miserable. So we bought a cat to have happy dogs and some great years of cruising in the Caribbean on Irie followed. The fact that I am less seasick is an added bonus! Liesbet Collaert is a freelance writer from Belgium. She and her American husband Mark have been cruising on Irie for almost six years. They recently left the Caribbean and are heading west for new adventures in the South Pacic. Visit her blog at: www.itsirie.com Seamanship & Voyaging spaciousness (cockpit, saloon and foredeck) and stability or should I say stableness. No more heeling, indeed, and easier cooking and sleeping! The rumor goes that you can put a beer or a cocktail on the table and it wont move Which is true most of the time, especially at anchor, but a catamaran is not immune to big ocean waves or annoying wake. We do have a lot of space but, because of weight considerations, we cant ll it all like on a monohull. Heavy cats especially when the weight is forward in the bows (to be avoided) are no fun to sail and might even become dangerous in heavy weather. But we can buy a lot of paper towels and potato chips! Plenty of outside light enters the saloon and the separate rooms through the big windows, port holes and hatches.

50 ALLATSEA.NET APRIL 2013 Chartering LIVING THE DREAM BY CAROL M. BAREUTHERCALIFORNIA COUPLE SHOW HOW TO SUCCESSFULLY SET UP A CARIBBEAN CREWED CHARTER OPERATION It wasnt pie in the sky, but a foot rmly planted on the ground plan that enabled Michael Hank Hampton and Micheale Zazo to give up their land-based life, buy a beautiful yacht, and embark on a successful career in St. Thomas famous crewed yacht industry. The couples careful planning is an instructive story for others who would like to follow in their path. Hampton, former franchise operations director for Red Robin, and Zazo, a Certied Sommelier with a passion for wine and ne dining, met through mutual friends in California. On their rst date they ew to Chicago for a Jimmy Buffett concert. Little did they know that seven years later they would live a Buffett-lifestyle in the Caribbean. Once home, the two cast off on day and overnight trips aboard Beneteau 465s they chartered as members of a yacht club in San Diego. This gave way to a weeklong bareboat vacation in the BVI. We started talking about chartering on that rst trip to the BVI, Hampton explains. We met folks who had chartered for ten years and talked with them. Moving from the corporate world to entrepreneur was a huge jump for both of us. We found theres a wealth of information and a willingness to help and enjoyed the mentorship of others already in the industry. The couple originally thought theyd wait 10 to 15 years to charter. Then they realized that they were in the prime of life, both had successful careers, and a deep desire to do something out of the box. It was time to follow their passion. They laid out a strategic plan. First, they lived more simply and ultimately sold Chef Micheale Zazo
APRIL 2013 ALLATSEA.NET 51 Industrial Supply, Inc.Ave, Ponce De Leon 655, San Juan, Puerto Rico
52 ALLATSEA.NET APRIL 2013 Chartering off many of their belongings including their beach community home. They used annual vacations to test out a variety of cruising grounds. They bareboated in the Abacos as well as in St. Maarten, St. Barths, Antigua, Saba, Grenada and St. Vincent and the Grenadines. These trips served two other purposes: To experiment with menus and daily itineraries with friends and family and to test out different makes and models of yachts. This gave them a realistic idea of where they would base, how Zazo would provision and prepare her signature food and wine matched meals, and the best vessel to t their needs. We wanted a catamaran for the space and for what our business is all about: entertainment and hospitality, says Hampton. The Voyage 500 is a stable platform, it has ve cabins, so we can do eight-pack charters in the BVI, and is big enough to hold all of our water toys, which include a 15-foot Caribe with 70 HP engine, wake board, surf board, knee board, tube, two SUPs and a kayak. Whats more, it has lots of galley space and two drop-down freezers, which makes Micheale very happy. Zazo adds, My goal was to create a ne dining experience with food and wine pairing and all with a Caribbean backdrop. Its part of our budget, one of our niches, to have a wine program to complement the food. I love entertaining. The couple bought Feel the Magic in June of 2012 and arrived in St. Thomas three months later. Yet, it was in the beginning of 2012, as soon as the purchase agreement on the yacht was signed, that they established themselves with a clearinghouse, introduced themselves to brokers and started to get charter offers for the Christmas and New Year holidays. During the two months before the St. Thomas Charter Yacht Show, in November, Hampton made non-stop improvements to the yacht such as installing a new water-maker, and Zazo met with wine purveyors and located where she could purchase the freshest, tastiest ingredients. We both had butteries in our stomach at that rst boat show, Hampton says. It was like being interviewed for a job 60 times. The process paid off as Feel the Magic is now booked until the beginning of August. We both came at this with hospitality backgrounds and with a business model in mind, Zazo explains of the couples success. Its hard work, but very rewarding. We love the lifestyle and the chance to guide our guests and show them what we fell in love with. For more information about Feel the Magic visit: www. ftmcharters.com Carol M.

54 ALLATSEA.NET APRIL 2013 TWO THOUSAND MILES TO BRAZIL: PART 2 BY THOMAS TANGVALD In part one of this amazing sailing adventure, Thomas and his young family buy a traditional Puerto Rican shing vessel and set sail through the Caribbean Islands heading south. The race is on to reach Brazil before Thomas wife, Christina, gives birth to their second child. But rst they must deal with a haul out and an angry customs ofcial who threatens to seize their boat Ed The big day arrived in October when we sailed out of Guayama, Puerto Rico, to Salinas, then on to Naguabo and back to our house in Vieques, where we did a nal sort through of what was really important and worth taking with us all the way to Brazil, and what should just be given away. On the beat from Vieques to St Thomas, the wind blew strong during the night, and I had yet to make the reef points, so my only option was to sail under jib alone, which is not very good as it puts undue pressure on the jib and rig. So the rst thing in St Thomas was a visit to Dietrichs sail loft on Hassel Island where he did a really great job putting in three deep reef points in both the jib and the mainsail. As we were racing the clock, or rather, the fetus, to Brazil, there was still plenty of things unnished on the boat. Each time we stopped for more than a few days, I would pull out my tools and try and scratch as many things off the list as possible. On to Jost Van Dyke, where years before I had courted my wife. Here we stayed a few weeks taking on a number of small jobs and building another dinghy. I sailed to Tortola to investigate my haul out and work options there, but the yard manager was ill and the yard was closed, so I sailed back to exclusive St. John, looking for work and to get Thomas and his trusty lookout say farewell to Dominica
APRIL 2013 ALLATSEA.NET 55 The Anegada Passage lived up to its reputation, especially now in the winter months, as the Atlantic Ocean collides with the Caribbean Sea and raises a mean, short and confused sea. One wave in particular smacked against the bow with such force the entire boat shook from end to end and all sorts of apparently well stored items below were dislodged and sent scattering fore and aft. I sailed slowly, on purpose, to lessen the wear and tear on ship and crew. Christina was catatonic with sea sickness, wedged in our bunk the whole way to St. Martin. St. Martin has long been a favorite of mine with its blend of the liberal but efcient Dutch and the laidback French cultures existing side by side. The rest of the family enjoyed it here too; such a big change from just a few islands downwind. Christina was blown away by the French pastry shops. We some more crucial tasks done on board. Customs in St John threatened to conscate my boat for not having numbers. But it was built on the beach and is engineless! Its just a big sailing dinghy, really, I protested. He was not impressed. Time was closing in, it was already late January. We left St. John with low dark clouds menacing. Sure enough, the wind got erce, and the boat started leaking quite a bit, so I turned back, but just to a deserted little cove on the south side of St John. I was in no mood to lose miles to windward, nor for that matter to revisit the charming customs man. In order to x the leak I swung the boom out the port side and hung full jerry cans, anchors and other weights to heel the boat over till the leak was just out of the water on the starboard side. Some trusty PC 11 jammed in the seam did the trick, at least good enough till I hauled out. Christinas Barbuda belly
56 ALLATSEA.NET APRIL 2013 Two Thousand Miles to Brazil: Part 2 had to go to the end of the airport runway so Gaston could watch the jumbos practically give everyone a haircut upon landing, and then sandblast everyone when they take off. I suspect the pilots get a little kick out of it too and hold the brakes for just a little longer than necessary. Gaston found that exhilarating and terrifying at the same time. I very quickly found work on the luxury yachts, which allowed me to get the money needed for the much anticipated haul out. Since I have internal ballast, before hauling I had to remove the 5500kg of lead so as not to put unnecessary stress on the hull, as well as to thoroughly inspect and clean out the bilge. Three weeks on the hard at Time Out Boat Yardand two gallons of the most toxic bottom paint money can buy, laterand we were back in the water. We met a friendly couple on another sailboat, which came from British Guyana, and they told us all about how nice a place it is and how cheap it is to live there. They told us they lived on the Essequibo River and would help us nd land, almost for free. When my wife realized it was only half as far as Brazil, she kept urging me to go there instead. I mumbled well see as the vaguest possible answer to those unwelcome comments. Christina is a sport, but she had only ever done daysails with me, and she was not doing well on these longer trips. By now it was end of March and I was really starting to stress. I did some last minute work on the boat and then we went to the bulk food market and bought enough food to last us a couple of months at sea. And we were off! Or were we? During the night, the seas got impressively tall and I put three reefs in the mainsail and two in the jib. About 02:00 I could see a loom to the southeast and calculated it must be Barbuda. I decided we would take a breather there, so I continued sailing on the port tack until I could feel the bottom with the lead line, then tacked without passing the jib, so the boat lay hove-to, safely awaiting the dawn to sail into Barbuda, which is littered with coral reefs just under the surface. The water was stunningly clear, but there was no way to get ashore for a walkabout what with the enormous crashing surf due to the high swell. Once the cold front had blown through, we had a In touch with the past captain and navigator Thomas Tangvald
APRIL 2013 ALLATSEA.NET 57the south, in which case I would tack. Invariably this would not last very long till the wind went back to the east and then I would fall back onto port tack. The boat sailed along very well to windward with the tiller tied and the sails adjusted correctly. I tried to allow the Oasis to go as fast as possible without pitching too violently. If the waves got too steep I would take in some more sail to slow her down a bit. Generally we would make between 170 and 120 miles per day through the water. Even so, Christina could not cook, which is normally her responsibility onboard, and every so often I would hear groans of despair and complaints emanating from the aft cabin. I was de-facto singlehanding. When we were passing Martinique, just two days after leaving Dominica, I reluctantly agreed to Christinas request to go to British Guyana, which would be much quicker than sailing to Brazil. Next month! In the nal part of this three part series, Thomas Tangvald and his family make landfall, but is it British Guyana? thrillingly fast reach down to Antigua. We raced another sailboat, neck and neck the whole way. From Antigua we sailed to Dominica, where there is a charming market and we could refresh our stores of fresh victuals. Here, the harbor is wide open and I was able to check the accuracy of my sun sights. I got an error of half a mile, which I nd is quite acceptable. Finally, on the 9th of April we upped anchor and this time I would not be stopping anywhere further south, as my angle was bad enough already. I sailed around the North end of Dominica, the sun beating down hard on the azure seas and we watched as the lush mountains of Dominica slowly faded away in the distance. I put out the trolling line with a fancy lure and a bungee cord setup which had been carefully explained to me by another cruiser, and which he claimed worked very well. The weather, now being slightly further south, was better, just out of reach of the cold fronts and their stronger winds and harsher seas. I kept the Oasis close hauled on the port tack, almost always, unless sufciently headed by a shift in the wind to Oasis is hauled ashore for antifouling A bilge full of victuals

The 811 nautical mile ocean race started on February 8th at Floridas Port Everglades, sending the eet of ten boatssailing in IRC and PHRF divisions on a challenging all-points-of-sail course to Montego Bay, Jamaica. Shockwave crossed the nish line with an elapsed time of 2d 11h 23m 02s, just short of the current race record that was set in 2005 by Titan 12 This was a true team effort for the Shockwave crew that George Sakellaris and his captain Reggie Cole have SHOCKWAVE MAKES CLEAN SWEEPShockwave winner of the Pineapple Cup Montego Bay Race 2013PHOTO: KIRSTEN FERGUSON PHRF division winner Glenn Gault and RJYC Commodore Andrew ThwaitesPHOTO: SUKIMACPHOTO.COM

One was that it would be light at the start but very solid the rest of the way to Jamaica, said Doyle. Knowing Shockwave s capabilities, we denitely were thinking that beating the record set by Titan was a possibility. The other forecast was for a light and variable breeze to carry on for the rst 12 hours of the race, and that proved to be the case. Nevertheless, we were able to recover from that and still had a good shot at the record but fell 58 minutes short. Doyle added that a conservative start on starboard tack at the pin end allowed them some southerly distance before jumping into the northerly heading Gulf Stream. They sailed until they ran out of counter current and jibed to cross the stream to leeward of all but IceFire the well regarded TP 52 entered by the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy Sailing Foundation (USMMASF). It was one long match race for IceFire and another TP 52, Bryon Ehrharts Lucky but IceFire prevailed, beating Lucky by a little over two hours and taking second place on corrected time in IRC Division. We were close to Lucky the entire time and it was great sailing because we were perfectly matched, said IceFire crew member Jesse Fielding, adding that his team, headed by Ralf Steiz president of the USMMASF, was promoting All American Ocean Racing, a new program that prepares sailors, age 30 and under, for offshore racing. In PHRF division, Glenn Gaults J/120 Rebecca won on corrected time. Tom Slades Santa Cruz 52 Renegade took second, while Michael Hennessys Class 40 Dragon nished third. Events such as this weave richness and fullness into the fabric of our lives, said Renegade crew member Dudley Baringer. Recollections of these times will put a smile on this old mans face for many years to come, God willing.

APRIL 2013 ALLATSEA.NET 63 Puerto Rico DISABLED VETS GET NEW LEASE ON LIFE THROUGH SCUBA STORY BY CAROL M. BAREUTHER PHOTOGRAPHY BY SUDS DIVING, INC. Scuba diving has been a window to another world for Dennis Cline, a disabled Army veteran and Tennessee native who received his Advanced Open Water Diver certication in mid-February at Taino Divers, in Rincon, Puerto Rico. Learning how to scuba dive put me in a more positive frame of mind, says Cline, who lost his left hand following an injury while deployed in the Middle East. Its shown me that life isnt over. Now Im looking forward to learning underwater photography and to diving when on vacation with my wife and children. Cline is one of over 300 disabled veterans who has become scuba certied through Soldiers Undertaking Disabled Scuba or SUDS, a non-prot organization and chapter of Disabled Sports USA. The organization is based at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, MD. The program was founded in February 2007 by John Thompson, an Army veteran himself who wanted to give back and who had worked for many years as a dive instructor in the Caribbean and at Taino Divers back in 2000. I went to have lunch at Walter Reed one day with a friend, Thompson tells. It was my rst time in a military hospital. I was amazed at all the young men and women and their horric injuries. I wanted to get involved. Since Im a water guy, I started volunteering in the aquatic therapy

Veterans who want to participate in SUDS need to be compliant with medical and physical therapy appointments. They also need a prescription from their physician. Most are single or double amputees, some triple amputees, and others suffer from hearing loss, burn injuries or traumatic brain injury. Some start the SUDS program as soon as four months after being injured on the battleeld. Complete rehabilitation can take 18 months to two years. All initial pool training and academics take place in the Walter Reed pool. Then, the veterans are ready to go on a SUDS trip. We do six to eight big trips each year, Thompson says. Well go to Guantanamo in May, the Outer Banks off North Carolina in July, Curacao in September, Hawaii in October and the Turks & Caicos in December. In addition, Ill often bring a couple of guys down to Puerto Rico for one-on-one instruction during a few weeks in the winter. Ten veterans, three dive instructors and one medical support person travel on the four-day ve-night big trips. Each day is planned with a purpose and involves training. For example, the rst two days is when veterans receive their check out dives and certication. Its also a time when they may learn how to put a n on a prosthetic foot or slide from a wheelchair to a boats transom and then into the sea. The second two days are for fun diving. We heard humpback whales sing, Cline tells of his trip to Puerto Rico in February. How many people get to hear whales sing? We also saw reef sharks, moray eels and lion sh. It was incredible. Results of the SUDS program have proved amazing. When theres been a serious injury, it can put you in a dark place, Thompson tells. Learning to scuba dive helps these veterans not only physically, but emotionally. It gives them condence and boosts self-esteem. The SUDS program has also proven rewarding for those who assist with the program. To help facilitate the soldiers rehabilitation in such a positive way through scuba diving is the ultimate reward for me personally, explains Greg Carson, who owns Taino Divers. Just seeing what these guys are going through with their injuries and how they have such a positive attitude gives you a big reality check! I feel very proud and humble to give back to them such a small sacrice for them sacricing their lives to give us our freedom! Carol M.

66 ALLATSEA.NET APRIL 2013 British Virgin Islands SWEETHEARTS & MORE RACE OFF TORTOLA IN CLASSIC REGATTA Seeing schooner crews wrestle with multiple sails while balanced on long bowsprits is like being in a time warp back to yesteryear. Yet this, plus the excitement of watching multiple classes of classics and all-comers, makes the BVIs West End Yacht Clubs (WEYC) Sweethearts of the Caribbean Regatta, a one-ofa-kind event. In total, a eet of 48 yachts came out for the 35th running of this February 16th -17th regatta. The rst day a eet of four schooners and a dozen singlehanders made short work of the 14-mile course from Nanny Cay and out around Peter, Pelican and Flanagan Islands in winds gusting to 26 knots. John Hayes 35ft Edlecat, Wildre took rst prize in the single-handed class in the pursuit-style race. The weather was perfect for my little catamaran, says Hayes. That, and the fact we tted a new mainsail the week before, is what Id credit with our win. On day two, 18 classics and wannabe classics, followed by a eet of ve double-handed Sweetheart Couples boats, raced the same course as the previous day. Although the breeze dropped to 15 to 18 knots, a wind shift just before the horn made for an interesting port-start situation. The 25 to 34ft classics managed to make a mix of port and starboard starts without incident. However, the 45 to 60-footers started ten minutes later and didnt see the shift. There was one tense moment when the newly re-launched S&S BY CAROL M. BAREUTHER 52, Mah Jong rocketed starboard off the start on the committee boat end while Ginger a Morgan 461 built in 1980, found itself in a slow port tack position. Disaster was averted when Mah Jong astutely tacked and Ginger dipped behind Mah Jong s stern just in the nick of time. In the end, Ginger s luck held when she won the class. Its nice to race among other classics, rather than kissing the pack of racers goodbye after the start, says Ginger s owner, Bruce Fletcher. Our biggest handicap is that were not allowed to spill the champagne during races. Yet, we have a captive crew with my wife and kids. Sweethearts was conceived as a unique schooner regatta. Along the way, as the schooners began to dwindle in number, other classes were added. Next year, says WEYCs Mike Kirk, We may add an Optimist race for youth sailingits a Classic! The WEYC hosts a number of regattas annually. In addition to Sweethearts, the Club hosts the six-event Goslings Regatta Series which starts in May with Foxys Wooden & Classic Boat Race and concludes with the Darkn Stormy Regatta in March.

This is a series that sends a hero to zero in the blink of an eye or lifts an unassuming weekend sailor to the head of the eet for an ecstatic moment of glory. Tacticians have an unenviable task of reading the water and predicting shifts against the whims of nature, but its what makes this regatta challenging and appealing. No other island in the Caribbean has this same quality of one design sailing. We are ahead, bragged Budget Marine CEO Robbie Ferron at Sundays prize giving. Co-host Boca Marina Restaurant proved to be the ideal viewing platform to watch the action on the windward-leeward course, close up. A moderate breeze and sunny conditions greeted the 13 teams who rotated on eight Jeanneau Sunfast 20s over the weekend.

APRIL 2013 ALLATSEA.NET 71 St. Maarten / St. Martin leader Frits Buss Island Water World who settled for second place, two points adrift. Bus saw the writing was on the wall late Saturday afternoon, blaming the unpredictable shifts and the speed difference in the boats. The wind was more stable Saturday morning but in the afternoon it was more shifty, and even being on the faster boats the wind was coming from right and left, he said Sunday morning while awaiting his turn to go out. We lost points there. Jolyon Ferron helmed North Sails St. Maarten into third place, out sailing Robbie Ferrons Pacica Plus in fourth, while Guy Taylor-Smith, a newcomer to the one design series, steered AMCON 2 into fth place, taking an impressive three bullets on Saturday and one on Sunday to boot. Roel ten Hoppen skippered IWW 2 to nish sixth. John Gifford on AMCON 1 was pleased to win one race but neither he nor Team Luc Knol who clinched three second places and one third, could get a handle on the conditions and ended up tied on points, nishing in eighth and ninth places respectively. The wildly uctuating shifts had Assistant Race Ofcer Andrew Rapley frequently scuttling out in a dinghy to adjust the course. I virtually had to go out every race. Between the last two races we moved the course around 30 to 40 degrees, said Andrew. But the sailors were very sporting about it. They know theres not much you can do, yet the camaraderie has been fantastic. Race Ofcer Laurey-Ann Findlay agreed laying the course was very challenging. Luckily Andrew was so good at it that every race was fairly sailed, she added. Not a lot of over early starts but really good starts ... everyone on the line just before the ag went down. Tremendous. For organiser Cary Byerley, the highlight was the participation of the Beckmann family from Mexico who participated in every race with their two little boys, aged four and ve. They nished in seventh place overall. Carlos Beckman, a Laser sailor of repute, relocated with his family to St. Maarten from Miami last August. For such young children to be so involved for the whole regatta duration and so well behaved, I nd it amazing, remarked Cary who presented prizes to the two boys. If they continue, they will be ones to watch. Robert Luckock is a British journalist and freelance writer residing in St. Maarten. He is currently The Daily Herald s correspondent for French St. Martin and was one of All At Sea s very rst contributors.
72 ALLATSEA.NET APRIL 2013 St. Barthlemy Windsurng was in the spotlight during the second annual edition of the Saint Barth Fun Cup, held on the weekend of February 1st-3rd. The participation of Dutchman Bjorn Dunkerbeck, who has 41 world championship titles to his credit, added to the excitement! Would the Dutch champion beat everyone else by a mile? With light winds of 12-18 knots, ve races were held over Friday and Saturday, however, Sundays schedule was cancelled when even lighter winds made racing impossible. Race organizer Antoine Questel, Saint Barths native son who won his rst French national title in November, proved his mettle, winning the rst four of the ve races. In the nal race, Dunkerbeck fought back and went on to win, squashing Questels chances of a clean sweep. My excellent preparation leading up to this event helped me win even against some pretty strong competition, says Questel, who took rst place overall, with Dunkerbeck coming in second, and Taty Frans placing third.

APRIL 2013 ALLATSEA.NET 77 Antigua the course suited us really well, said Westgarth-Pratt. It was a great sail for us up to St Johns and then we ew back with the spinnaker. For the other two classes, Cruising and Spinnaker, the last day consisted of two races with starts outside the entrance to Jolly Harbour and a rst windward leg into the shore and back to Five Islands. From there a series of windward/leeward legs took the eet northwards. Racing was exceptionally close. Stephen Carson and his crew on Hightide were snifng victory as they came bounding back from a sluggish start to the event and nished the regatta only one point adrift of Digicel Challenger s winning score. Geoffrey Pidducks Six-Metre Biwi Magic experienced a minor drama when she dragged Jolly, the rst windward mark, downwind as she attempted to round. One competitor observed: A couple of boats are saying a very big thank you to Mr. Pidduck for moving the mark to their advantage! In the cruising division only three points separated second, third and forth position: Don Wards Frolic Festus Isaacs Chardonnay and Robbie Ferrons Springtide respectively. The regatta wasnt just for the keelboats. The celebration was joined by a dozen Laser Pico dinghies provided by Antigua National Sailing Academy, which completed six races off Jolly Harbour beach. Winning all but one race was 11-year old Antiguan youth sailor Rocco Falcone who is already an emerging star at championship level. But it was the consistency of Bea Shrewsbury that took the championship. The three-day Jolly Harbour Valentines Regatta ended as it began, in perfect conditions of 12-14 knots and at turquoise seas. Chairman of the Regatta Organizing Committee Kathy Lammers summed up the event. Weve seen a wonderful celebration of the regattas 20th anniversary. Weve had excellent conditions and such great participation from a wide variety of yachts, both those based in Antigua, and others who are passing through. Prizes were presented by Antigua and Barbuda Minister of Tourism, the Hon. John Maginley at the closing Rum on the Beach party at Castaways Beach Bar. Alison Sly-Adams, Marketing and Sponsorship Director for the Jolly Harbour Valentines Regatta and Rum Festival, described the ethos of the event.

78 ALLATSEA.NET APRIL 2013 Grenada GRENADA SAILING FESTIVAL WORKBOAT REGATTAWith Caribbean-style racing and a beach-party vibe, the Workboat Regatta in Grenada always packs a lot of fun and excitement into one weekend of racing. But the partying was revved up even higher this year as its 20th anniversary and a record-breaking win gave double the reason to celebrate. It all starts with small wooden workboats. Theyre islandbuilt, bamboo-rigged, modeled after Grenadas original shing boats, and are a strong reminder of Grenadas heritage in shing and boat building. Grenadas Workboat Regatta is a unique National Treasure that showcases the sailing heritage of Grenada and sister islands Carriacou & Petite Martinique, says Sarah Baker, Event Coordinator. Its an integral part of the culture here, and has become an annual focal point for the islands sailing communities, for all Grenadians, and for overseas visitors who plan their vacations just to be here in February for this great local sailing event. MILESTONE TWENTIETH YEAR AND FIRST-EVER WIN DELIVERS PURE SAIL, PURE SPICEBY CONNIE MARTIN The crowd goes wild as Woburns Alan Noel and his crew from Trouble bring home the Skipper of the Year title for first time in 20 years!PHOTO: TRUE BLUE BAY BOUTIQUE RESORT
APRIL 2013 ALLATSEA.NET 79 The races themselves are a pleasure to watch, and quite unlike your typical yacht races. Race starts are lively with boats dragged into the water; rudders attached, and sandbag ballast added. Crew must then battle wind and waves to keep their boats in position until a Le Mans-style start has skippers racing in, scrambling onboard, and theyre off. There are splashes, sometimes crashes, and always rum shots at the end. But its not all just racing. The local food and drink, games and giveaways, music, hordes of people, and nonstop party atmosphere provides plenty of action on both water and beach, and the perfect opportunity to soak up some genuine Grenada culture. This years regatta had 25 boats from the communities of Gouyave, Grand Mal, Sauteurs, Woburn, and sister island Petite Martinique, ghting wind and rain, ripped sails and bumps, to determine top boats in each community. Competition was intense; every racer knowing that only the best make it to nals. Following that, community boats were set aside and onedesign Festival boats brought out for the National Team Match Races. The Junior Final was well matched, but in the end it was last years champ, Gouyave, who placed rst again, followed by Woburn and Petite Martinique. Woburn then started to turn up the heat, taking a solid rst in the Senior Final, followed by Gouyave and Sauteurs. But it was the nal race for Skipper of the Year that saw Woburns Alan Noel and his crew from Trouble explode off the line and establish a lead which no one could take. Crossing the line with a solid rst, they became the rst Woburn crewin 20 long yearsto win the esteemed 2013 United Insurance Skipper of the Year title and trophy. Even a day of rain didnt dampen the racing spirit as skippers madly dash to their boats at race startPHOTO: CONNIE MARTIN

84 ALLATSEA.NET APRIL 2013 BarbadosBRIAN TALMA ACTION MAN!INTERVIEW BY TEZ PLAVENIEKS PHOTOGRAPHY BY KENNY HEWITT Enigmatic and colourful, Brian Talma is no shrinking violet when it comes to promoting his beloved Barbados and water sports. With a call to arms of ACTION ! hollered at any available opportunity, Brians enthusiasm and warm personality instantly rubs off. A former professional windsurfer, with numerous trophies under his belt, Brian now spends most of his time promoting his Beach Culture Lifestyle.The early yearsWhen asked what attracted him to the ocean, Brian gives the credit to his dad. I was introduced to water sports by my father. Some of my earliest memories were of me on his back, catching Without the inuence of his dad, Brian says he would not have found his true calling and his life could have followed a different path. Brian enjoys the breaking seas courtesy of Hurricane Katrina Cluff Beach Big Wave Sailing
APRIL 2013 ALLATSEA.NET 85 waves. I was about six or seven at that time and it wasnt long after that I started body surng. Brian lived on the hill that overlooks the now well recognised Bajan surf breaks of Freights and South Point. It was here that he honed his surng skills, before surng in Barbados was cool. Without the inuence of his dad, Brian says he would not have found his true calling and his life could have followed a different path.Bajan watermanNowadays Brian is one of the leading promoters of Caribbean water sports. In an age when the term waterman is banded around wantonly, Brian is the real deal practicing a host of different disciplines at a world class level. BLUEBEARD ENTERPRISES 4734407260 OR 4734097260EMAIL US BLUEBEARDSPICEISLE.COM
86 ALLATSEA.NET APRIL 2013 Barbados I started surng at age eight, windsurng at 16, kitesurfing in 1999 and SUP in 2005, he says. When asked which sport he would choose if it could only be one, he replies: It would be windsurng because it has allowed me to live this life, make a living, given me fantastic memories, allowed me to travel and connected me with some fabulous people many of whom I now call friends. Windsurng gives me the freedom I crave and the ability to express myself in the waves. I love windsurng at the Action Beach, Silver Sands Action !CompetitionAs a world class ocean athlete, Brian was expected to compete from almost the very start of his career. This wasnt a problem for the Irie Man, as there is a erce competitive streak that runs through his Bajan veins. I turned pro in 89 and competed on the Pro Windsurng Tour until 04. From 2000 to 03 I was also on the Articial Wave Tour, which banded together a whole host of top action sports athletes including multiple world surfing champion Kelly Slater and skateboarding mega star Tony Hawk. After learning to SUP, I started competing in this discipline. I did all the early world cup events, some of the Waterman League competitions and generally helped to promote the sport throughout Europe. There is so much water in the world and SUP is the perfect sport to make use of all of it! When asked if he misses the hectic travel schedule he used to endure, he answers: I loved the tour but life changes. I was away travelling for many years. I saw people come and go. You cannot do it forever.Beach CultureThese days Brians focus is his Beach Culture World Tour where he promotes the way of the waterman and beach lifestyle. This includes all the water sports mentioned but also music and art the whole package. In 2012, Brian took his Beach Culture World Tour to Guyana, Hawaii, Austria, New York and Germany. I started my Beach Culture Tour in 2002 and so far its been amazingly successful. Back in the days of competing on the PWA I had to organise everything myself. Now it all gets done for me! I dont have to compete for money. I get paid to do what I love and get given a platform to promote this fantastic way of life.BarbadosBrian is passionate about his homeland Barbados. As much as he enjoys seeking out new places to indulge in his passions, he always loves to come back to what he knows best home. Its a place where he feels he belongs. All his family are here and perfect conditions for his sports are everywhere. Brian sums up his home, his life and everything he has achieved in one word ACTION !
