8 ALLATSEA.NET MARCH 2014 Editors Log This edition of All At Sea has something for everyone who loves the Caribbean and watersports. Yacht racing, cruising, “shing, navigation, rallies, stand up paddleboarding (SUP) and more. I have to admit that SUP has me baf”ed. In the past, whenever I saw someone paddling a windsurfer without a mast through a group of anchored yachts, my “rst thought was they were up to no good and I would stare at them until they went away. Now it seems that everyone is standing up to do their thing on a paddleboard and Im thinking of giving it a try. I mean, if its good enough for winning Americas Cup Skipper Jimmy Spithill and his Antiguan sidekick Shannon Falcone, then its time to get with the program. You can read about the exploits of these two winning sailors at the BVI Painkiller Cup on page 52. And remember to keep your eye on the horizon for paddleboarders over the next few months, especially wobbly ones, it could be me. Technology waits for no man and that is obvious with all the new electronic gadgetry to be found on even the most modest of boats these days. And keeping up with these advances can be a daunting task. Although most manufacturers have improved their instruction booklets, making them easier to understand and less brain-numbing than user guides of the past, they are still a mine“eld for the technically challenged. Of course, if you are at the stage where you are opening the box of your new electronic wizardry, the chances are you know what it does and are happy to dig through the half-adead tree-in-the-plastic-bag for the installation instructions, while at the same time reaching for the wire crimpers. However, as a discussion with a fellow customer at my local chandlery proves, not all of us actually know what some of the new gadgets do or at least are capable of. For instance, Automatic Identi“cation Systems (AIS). On page 48, our technical writer Glenn Hayes discusses the pros and cons of various types of AIS, a piece of kit that some say, given a choice, they would buy instead of radar. The weight of command can weigh heavy on ones shoulders and anyone in charge of a watercraft of any kind will “nd they have to make some serious decisions, often quickly. Saying No!Ž can be the hardest decision of all, especially if it means another uncomfortable night on a bumpy sea when Gary E. Brown, Editor a quiet port lies close at hand. In place of his usual humorous musings, this month Capn Fatty Goodlander turns a gnarly weather eye on the serious business of decision making at sea. Having completed two circumnavigations and with a third underway, Fatty has made thousands of decisions while on the briny. The sea has a way of quickly showing you if the decision made was the right one. As Fatty points out, sometimes the right decision is an emphatic: NO.Ž March, glorious March. Spring is in the air, seas are blue, beaches shimmer golden in the sun and yachting season is in full swing. Not only is our quest to bring you the best of whats happening around the Caribbean each month, All At Sea encourages everyone to go out and experience all the amazing things our region has to offer. If youre land bound, then visit a marina, yacht club, or dive center and see if theres something you might like to try. Speak to people on boats, they love to talk and answer questions and perhaps that will encourage you to take the “rst step into water sports. If you are on a boat, then spend more time ashore exploring the wonders and natural beauty of our islands. Talk to the locals; learn about their rich heritage, history and culture. Having fun? Share your stories with All At Sea tell us where you are, what you are doing, what you are enjoying and why. We want to hear from you! Email: KEEP CALM AND READ THE INSTRUCTIONSSee you on the water!

Email: sxmsearescue@gmail.comNew immigration policy for yachts visiting GrenadaA recent press release issued by the Marine & Yachting Association of Grenada (MAYAG) notes two changes that will affect yachts visiting that country. Part one deals with extension of stay. The release says that in recognition of Grenadas popularity as a base for all types of yachts, Grenada Immigration has changed its policy on extension of visas for yachting visitors. A three month stay is now generally granted on arrival if requested, and this can subsequently be extended up to 12 months. Once the 12 months period has been reached, there is no requirement to leave and re-enter. If Immigration are satis“ed that the visitor has the means to leave should the need arise, and has not violated the terms of their visitors visa, their stay can be extended for up to another 12 months if requested, with ongoing 12 month extensions granted at the discretion of the Immigration department. Part two of the release states that Embarkation tax will increase from EC$1 to EC$20. This will be paid on departure by yacht, and is levied on each person aboard who is not bona “de crew … passengers and those not involved in the operation of the yacht. Typically this will not be levied on a cruising couple running their yacht, but may be on any Sint Maarten Sea Rescue in their new foul weather jackets

Carl Kiekhaefer in 1939 when he purchased a bankrupt engine manufacturing plant in Cedarburg, Wisconsin, not far from the Kiekhaefer family farm.

26 ALLATSEA.NET MARCH 2014SAYING NO!Ž BY CAPN FATTY GOODLANDERSailing Humor A pimply-face kid„totally ignorant of the sea„taught me an important, lifelong lesson. It was somewhere in the Carolinas, along the Intra Coastal Waterway, on the east coast of America. He was a dock jockey at a rickety old marina, and I was a tired yachtie running south, away from winter. I swung alongside his fuel dock and refueled nervously as there was a considerable chop and crosswind pushing me onto the piling. Besides, there were a number of vessels waiting. We were near an inlet, so there was a considerable tidal current running as well. While Carolyn was paying for the diesel, I surveyed the hodgepodge collection of docks. Put her in D12 for the night,Ž the kid told me. ƒ cant ,Ž I said. What do you mean cant ?Ž asked the kid.  Cant or wont „whatever,Ž I replied. That corner getting into D12 is tight. Theres a cross wind and about a two knot current. Im scared Ill end up swept down. I want to spend the night resting, not “lling out insurance forms ƒŽ You just buy the boat?Ž the kid sneered. Yeah,Ž I said breezily, being on my 25th year of cruising. I did. And Im not too good at handling it. How bout putting me on the end of D dock„where I can power into the tidal stream, not have it on my transom?Ž The kid was making a big deal of it. Well, I suppose that one would be a lot easier if you were having dif“culty handling your vessel.Ž It was noisy and confusing inside the baitshop/fuel shed. People were arriving and leaving and buying ice and paying slip fees„and somewhere in between all this chaos, the kid assigned D12 to a twin screw powerboat with a ”ying bridge. I “gured the guy was a local, familiar with the area and its currents, and knew how to effectively use his two engines. Wrong.


MARCH 2014 ALLATSEA.NET 27A few minutes later, we heard shouting and the panicked roar of big engines in big trouble. People were running. CRASH! The corner of the powerboaters transom clipped a protruding bowsprit, and this pushed his bow to port into the transom of a houseboat. Instead of doing nothing and minimizing the damage„he panicked and gunned it. Stanchions snapped. Outriggers fell. Flag staffs broke. His bow anchor hooked a stern-rail mounted BBQ grill„and carried off both, dangling. It was bedlam. Idiot,Ž the kid said under his breath, watching half the boats in his marina being needlessly damaged. Yah, lots of those around here-ah,Ž I said in my best Downeast accent. ƒ whats that mean?Ž asked the kid. It means I rest my case,Ž I said as I turned away. No is one of the most important words in a captains vocabulary. This is especially true if youre a professional delivery skipper. I was once ”own to Newport to deliver a racing boat to England„with the owner aboard so he could learn the arts of offshore “rst hand. The boat was supposed to be brand new and completely sea-trialed, or„as they always tell you, All set to go!Ž The people who tell you that a boat is all set to go are usually the people who arent going. The owner was„or he considered himself to be„a hotshot racer who was a tad short on offshore experience. He was a lawyer from Albany, New York, and at least knew enough to know that going transatlantic was beyond his skill set. Nonetheless, when I arrived he gave me a chart and weather course to acclimate me to the task ahead, and then said, Well leave on Thursday, the day after tomorrow.Ž We went down to the boat. It was a fast & light design, sure, but it was also built like crap. It was strictly an around the buoys design. Id have to nurse it across the Pond. The “rst thing I did was grab a hose laying on the dock and gently ”ow some water over the cabin trunk. The deadlights didnt just leak„they gushed. One was dripping right into the SSB; the other on the port bunk. This boat has never been offshore, has it?Ž No,Ž he said, but dont worry. I launched it in a small lake behind my home„and prepared it for offshore there.Ž I looked at the ree“ng system. At “rst glance, it appeared the clew line on the second reef might be led wrong. On second glance, both reef lines were wrong. The boat has never been reefed?Ž Well,Ž he said, its all set to. I followed the drawing in the Harken catalog exactly. But, no, I have never actually reefed it because, you know, theres not much wind on the lake.Ž


28 ALLATSEA.NET MARCH 2014It looks straight-forward on the chart,Ž he said. Thats what worries me,Ž I said. Most of the vessels that are lost have a very con“dent guy at the helm„otherwise, they wouldnt be lost!Ž But, hey, seriously ,Ž the guy said, Ill go “rst.

Im sure Carolyn would like to be in safe harbor tonight.Ž I didnt say it but I thought: what part of no dont you understand? The following day, I heard he was yakking on me about being timid and paranoid. Any idiot could have done it,Ž he was saying with a self-satis“ed smile. Exactly. A few days later he was telling me of his recent Euro cruise„and how hed been hauled out for many months in Portugal. When questioned, he admitted that hed been coming into a harbor at night, with all his marvelous toys whirling and twirling and swirling and beeping, when ƒŽ At night?Ž I said, my ears perking up. ƒ but it was not my fault ,Ž he said,  The chart was wrong!

Whenever an inexperienced skipper tells me, I think I can make it,Ž I think to myself: Then dont try.

Then I started to walk away. Where are you going?Ž he asked. Im going home ,Ž I said. You cant ,Ž he said, both desperate and angry now. You promised I paid for your ”ight here to deliver my boat„and you havent done that. Youre in default of our agreement.Ž Sue me,Ž I said and walked out. About six months later, I heard hed sold the boat after being in a major storm which scared him. Yeah, storms can be scary„especially when the vessel isnt prepared for the conditions it is likely to encounter. I am currently on my third circumnavigation. Often, Im at a seasonal weather window/gate which puts me offshore with equally experienced sailors„plus, of course, some less experienced sailors. One of the things that is blatantly obvious in such circumstances is that the less experienced sailors are always urging the more experienced sailors to be bolder. Example: my wife Carolyn and I never enter a strange harbor at night. It is a very simple, very black and white rule. Theres little wiggle room. It is not a judgment call. We. Do. Not. I was recently on passage and approaching land with a large catamaran just ahead. It was late in the day. When I advanced my DR, it put me at the harbor entrance one hour after dark. Im going to heave-to out here,Ž I said to the other vessel. Ive never been in that harbor before.Ž

Gerard Frothy de Silva, who operates Hard Play Fishing Charters out of Tobago? Experience. De Silva has “shed recreationally and professionally since the age of seven when he spent a two-week summer holiday on Gasperee Island, Trinidad, with his parents and grandparents. I “shed long hours every day and night and caught hundreds if not thousands of small grunt, snapper, jack and other species,Ž de Silva says. Ive been hooked since.Ž De Silva “rst went bill“shing during the Trinidad & Tobago Game Fishing Association (TTGFA) Tobago Tournament back in 1981. His team didnt catch any bill“sh. However, they did raise a small blue marlin that followed the boat for a long time. This magni“cent blue fascinated de Silva and kept him coming back. To be honest I think that “shing chose me because I never thought of doing anything other than “shing for a living even before I “nished high school,Ž he tells. He started out “shing commercially in Trinidad from 1982 to 1989. He then moved to Tobago to continue his trade. While off-loading his catch one day at the Pigeon Point Jetty, he was asked by a group of visitors to take them on a “shing charter. It was the “rst charter for him and it was a great day. The group caught several big Dorado. This is how he decided to give the charter business a try and its been his profession ever since. Today, he says, I enjoy all types of sports “shing. I do quite a bit of light to medium tackle upon request and when targeting smaller species. However, I specialize in big game trolling and always target big “sh, so I honestly like heavy tackle from 50 to 130lb test. My favorite is big game for bill“sh, particularly blue marlin.

He was out on charter for only two hours when the mega marlin hit. I have caught many large blue marlin in Madeira and in the Caribbean since that time, but that Grander will always really stand out for me,Ž he says. During his career de Silva has “shed off Venezuela, Cuba, Mexico, Florida, the Azores and Hawaii for bill“sh and even ”y “shed for trout and salmon in Sweden, Norway and Finland. However, most of his “shing … for fun, charters and in tournaments … has taken place in the Southern Caribbean. Its here he has “shed all of the Southern Caribbean Bill“sh Circuit events.

Local anglers who owned summer homes in the area brought their boats up from Santo Domingo on the southern coast in late spring and early summer and stayed until late August. With the arrival of international visiting sports “shing boats, some decided to come earlier and “sh longer. Its led to the discovery that the “shing seasons are actually longer and more productive than originally thought.Ž What enabled the international sports “shermen to test these waters has been an increase and improvement in infrastructure in the form of world-class marinas.

They were great. We came back the next year and stayed for the season. The “shing was unbelievable. That means six to 12 or 15 white marlin on a good day and the same number of blues.Ž The “shing grounds off Cap Cana consist of a series of undersea mounts starting about seven miles off the marina inlet. The waters here, around the easternmost point of the island, attract bill“sh that come to feed on the teeming schools of bait“sh that in turn feast on nutrients churned up by the currents off the Mona Passage.

36 ALLATSEA.NET MARCH 2014 Racing Circuit ONEDESIGN VS. HANDICAP BY CAROL M. BAREUTHER One-design classes appear to be on the increase at Caribbean regattas. Just look at the growing entries of J24s, IC24s and Melges 24s in the last decade, plus the availably of one-design ”eets for charter like the Jeanneau 20s in St Maarten and SR 21s in Trinidad. More recently, theres been a swell of visiting one-designs from the US and Europe such as the Melges 32s, RC44s and J70s. Will one-designs dominate Caribbean racing in the future or will there always be a place for handicap competition? All At Sea asked some of the regions rock stars for their views. Caribbean one-design has been an up and down trend. Many years ago it was the J24. Then the J29 had six to eight boats in the early nineties. Now the IC24s and Melges are gaining popularity and numbers. It is simply a matter of when one class gets popular, and grows to a suf“cient size, that regattas give them their own class,Ž explains St. Thomas Peter Holmberg. Certain people prefer racing equal boats with no reliance on a rating system to determine the results. As the population grows more people sail and the chance of one-design classes grow.Ž The obvious attraction of one-design racing is that the competition is amongst identical boats, hence the winner is WHATS THE FUTURE OF CARIBBEAN RACING? decided mostly upon racing skills and sailing ability (obviously some local knowledge and luck also helps), says Trinidads Jeffrey Chen. This eliminates excuses such as wrong conditions for the boat, my rating is unfavorable, my competitions rating is too favorable, etc. The best racers win.Ž Puerto Ricos Jaime Torres adds, One-design helps sailors raise their own skill level faster than any other type of sailing. The results of your trim and/or tactical choices are evident almost immediately in one-design ”eets but not quite so with handicap races.Ž In addition, says Antiguas Bernie Wong, One-design racing opens up the sport of competitive sailing to many more people than handicap racing. You dont have to own a boat to participate, so it is not capital intensive. You just show up at an event race, have fun, and go home satis“ed, no worrying about delivering boats to and from regattas, maintaining boats and buying new gear, etc.Ž Yet handicap racing does suit the character of Caribbean racing, says Trinidads Chen. You can arrive in the Caribbean with your boat, from a small family cruiser to a Grand Prix racing machine, and be able to travel from event to event amongst the different territories and be guaranteed that you will able to participate.Ž Melges one-design regattas are growing in popularityPHOTO: JOY DUNIGAN


MARCH 2014 ALLATSEA.NET 37Some sailors such as St. Croixs Tony Sanpere “nd handicap racing more relaxing. My latest racing machine is a 1976 Catalina 30. Does this explain what I rather do?Ž Major offshore races such as the Caribbean 600 may only be suitable for offshore-capable race boats, notes Puerto Ricos Torres. Few of which have established one-design classes,Ž he adds. The main advantage of handicap racing for Antiguas Wong is the opportunity to do passages between the islands and visit other islands on the way. The crews on most handicap yachts are larger than on one design yachts so its more sociable, the host countries bene“t more from handicap racers as they have to rent accommodation, vehicles, buy boat parts, repairs, maintenance, etc.,Ž Wong says. So, with this said, what will the future make-up of classes in Caribbean regattas look like? St. Thomas Holmberg answers, A bit of both, handicap and one-design, with one-design classes growing and fading, growing if a design becomes popular, and if sailing grows.Ž Handicap sailing will always be here, says St. Maartens Frits Bus, an avid one-design sailor. However, with more youth sailors coming out of one design sailing programs such as Optis and Lasers, I see the coming generations leading to the establishment of more one-design sailing.Ž Finally, Puerto Ricos Jaime Torres sums up what both one-design and handicap racing brings to Caribbean regattas. Where we currently have a mix of one-design and handicap, the mix will continue. Where we dont, like in St. Maarten or Antigua, one-design racing will arrive and stay, hopefully sooner rather than later. New keelboat one-design racing ”eets will attract a new type of sailor to the area and will raise the pro“le of the events hosting them. But this will only happen if the will of event organizers is there because one-design ”eets may have logistical requirements that can tax razor-thin regatta budgets. The St. Thomas Yacht Club has done a particularly great job of fostering one-design racing at their International Regatta. In Puerto Rico it went the other way. The Club Nautico de San Juan International Regatta added CSA racing to their hugely successful one-design regatta as a way of attracting a new group of sailors.Ž Carol M.

38 ALLATSEA.NET MARCH 2014 Racing Circuit MEASURED MULTIHULL RATING SYSTEM COMES TO THE CARIBBEANSint Maarten has been the centre for multihull racing in the Caribbean going back many years. It began with the big Spronk catamarans that ran day trips to St. Barths and Anguilla racing each other to get to the prime anchoring spots “rst and it continued with the infamous Caribbean Offshore Regatta. In more recent years, the St. Maarten Heineken Regatta has had the biggest multihull ”eet of any of the major Caribbean regattas. This is where things started getting serious. The monohulls have been fairly rated in the Caribbean with the Caribbean Sailing Association (CSA) rating rule. This rule has outlived many international rules and has evolved to stand with the best rating systems around. Not so for the multihulls. These beasts are dif“cult to rate, with subtle changes in sail size and displacement having huge effects on their speed potential. The roots of most modern multihull rating systems go back to the race around Texel Island in the Netherlands in 1984. That year, a group of dedicated enthusiasts devised a measurement rule based on the publications of major yacht designers such as John Shuttleworth, Derek Kelsall, Richard Boehmer and Olin Stephens. The Texel Rating rule, as it became known, went on to form the basis of rating systems in The Netherlands, France (as Multi 2000), Australia (as OMR) and in other regions. Along with the rule, a huge database of production multihulls were measured and rated against each other. Organizers of the Heineken Regatta realized the value of these ratings early on and used the standard ratings to rate the entrants in the multihull class. Measurements from custom and high performance boats were put into the calculations to approximate ratings for these. Unfortunately, because a minimum of data was available and, most importantly, accurate displacements were hard to come by, these ratings were sometimes not as accurate as may have been hoped for, resulting in some controversies after racing. In 2012, it was recognized that if we were to rate multihulls fairly, provision had to be made to weigh them. With this in mind, St. Martin-based CSA Measurer Stuart Knaggs purchased a single point load cell with a capacity of 38 tons and then added eight smaller load cells with a combined capacity of 70 tons for use on a travel lift. The arrival of the load cells meant that multihulls could be weighed and accurately measured to give ratings that would truly re”ect their speed potential. A group of CSA measurers sat down with the Texel formulas and made minor tweaks, such as adapting the way sail area is calculated, adding a daggerboard factor and altering the output to give ratings that are in a similar format to what is produced by the CSA monohull rule. These changes did not affect the essence of the rule but made it easier for measurers and race organizers in our region to use. The Multihull Rating Rule is now ready to be implemented and will receive its big debut at the 2014 Heineken Regatta.

40 ALLATSEA.NET MARCH 2014 Racing Circuit REGATTAGURU.COMRunning a regatta can be a complicated business … gathering, organizing, and sharing information on entries, fees, class assignments and ratings is an onerous task before the racing even starts. Once a large event begins, the challenges increase: competitors need access to of“cial documents, scratch sheets showing data about their own boat as well as the boats they are racing against in their class, information about protests and, of course, up-to-date and accurate results. Meanwhile, the race of“cials need to be able to share information on boats racing while being kept informed about the running of the event. All those challenges makes easier. Originally designed to handle the formidable task of calculating results quickly and easily for a complex regatta, now handles all aspects of racing from regatta entry through registration, amendments, results and protests to generating the script for the prize-giving in a central shared system where every piece of information is available across the globe as soon as it is entered. Because the data is live, there is no delay between, for example, a protest decision and the changes to the scores that might ensue. Keeping all the information is now easy but getting it out to the widest possible audience is another challenge. Scrolling results screens were introduced at the Sint Maarten Heineken Regatta in 2010 and have become a feature of the Serious Fun event. Having instantly available results on screens at the party venues means that competitors can quickly see how Serious their results are on the way to the beer tent to ful“ll the Fun element, while the organizers no longer have to struggle with printing information that might change just minutes later. The screens have also allowed organizers to give added value to their sponsors with title sponsor logos shown prominently behind the results information. Of course, the screens can be strategically sited by the sponsors stand at the regatta venue or, as did for Budget Marine last year, have race results on their screens in the store. Whilst has been providing instant online results for many years, access is, of course, dependant on an internet connection. New this year is a mobile-friendly layout with of”ine pages like scratch sheets that can be used even when there is no internet connection. The new layout and features makes it easier for competitors to enter regattas with all the information about the competitors boat, crew, and rating details stored in pro“les that they can use to enter regattas with just two taps on their smartphone. It also presents new information in formats that are designed to provide what the competitors want. For example, every racer has stood looking at results calculating how many seconds they were away from glory on the “nish line. Now the results for individual races are presented from the perspective of their boat, with the time differences displayed alongside the results, with color-coding of close results to draw attention to tight races. This not only helps the competitor see how painfully close they were to victory or defeat, but also helps journalists quickly identify the key battles on the water. Spectators are not forgotten, being part of regattaguru. coms target audience. Providing information to people that do not know much or anything about yacht racing is dif“cult, buts Spectator Guide, introduced at Antigua Sailing Week 2013, aims to make it easier for spectators, whether shoreside or on a spectator boat, to understand what is happening out on the water with all those seemingly random boats, ”ags, horns and buoys. While designing and creating a system that meets the needs of such diverse people as sponsors, organizers, competitors, journalists, and spectators is not a simple task, provides a system and a service that at least makes regattas easier.

42 ALLATSEA.NET MARCH 2014 In the sixth and “nal part of our series on buying a center console boat, we asked our panel of experts about what to look for when it comes to warranties. Heres what they had to say: John Caballero, SeaVee BoatsA factory warranty protects the buyer from manufacturing defects. Make certain that you have received a written copy of the warranty and understand its terms and conditions before “nalizing your boat purchase. Most boat builders will warranty their products to be free of structural defects due to substandard materials and/ or workmanship. Look for a minimum of “ve years of boat hull coverage to ensure that any hidden defect has the time to make its presence known, so it can be properly repaired without “nancial consequence to the boat owner. The boats engines, as well as the accessory items typically installed on a boat, will usually have separate warranty terms depending upon the items manufacturer. Sometimes, extended warranties can be negotiated into the Powerboating WHAT TO LOOK FOR IN A CENTER CONSOLE: BY DOUG SIMMONSWARRANTIES boat purchase and even obtained free of charge as part of a sales promotion at a boat show or other event. SeaVee Boats warrants each hull to be free from structural defects for a period of ten years. The warranty protects the original buyer and the resale value of his boat, as the warranty is transferrable if the boat is certi“ed prior to resale. Factory service personnel perform any warrantable repairs for all customers throughout southeast Florida. Otherwise, we use a certi“ed independent service network for repairs practically anywhere in the world.Ž Joan Maxwell, Regulator MarineA customer will want to consider the length of the warranty coverage, what is covered, what is excluded, and whether or not the warranty is transferable. Also, does the company have a reputation for standing behind its products? If theres a problem, how quickly does the company resolve the issue? Social media and blogs can be sources of information on any re-

If the company has low CSI scores, theres a strong possibility it has higher warranty claims. Its critical that the buyer register his boat with the manufacturer to activate the warranty. He should further understand how and to whom he should report any possible warranty issues, and what activities could void the warranty. Regulator has a one-year, stem-to-stern warranty and a “ve-year structural hull warranty. We are also a multiyear recipient of the National Marine Manufacturers Association CSI Award representing the highest level of customer satisfaction.Ž Dennis Tilden, Boston WhalerA buyer should look for the following: What is the length of the structural warranty on the hull, and is it prorated? What is the length of the component parts warranty, and does it cover parts and labor? Is the warranty transferable to a new owner? The buyer should also consider the exclusions to the warranties. Its the buyers responsibility to make sure that all service timetables are met, and to make sure to have authorized dealerships do the repairs. Or does the manufacturer require the customer to bring or ship the boat back to the factory for repairs instead of having the work done at a local dealer? Keeping accurate records of repair work done, and keeping and maintaining the boat well will help with any warranty claims. Boston Whaler has a ten-year structural hull warranty that is transferable to new buyers as long as the new buyer registers the boat with us. We have a three-year component warranty that covers parts and labor on items installed at the factory.ŽAlan Lang, Scout BoatsA structural hull warranty is very important, but whats more important is the company behind it. A buyer should ask himself: Is this company a strong “nancial company and will it be around when and if I need their warranty assistance? What is this companys reputation? Everyone has issues. Its how the boat builder stands behind those issues that de“ne it. Never be scared to ask about the companys “nancial stability or do your own research to “nd out about how theyve handled past situations. There will always be extremists on either side; its the overall consensus that a consumer should consider.

Since 1994, I have been teaching sailing, coaching collegiate competitive sailing, running sailing programs, assisting deliveries, serving as a program consultant, and working as an Instructor Trainer for U.S. Sailing to certify students to become instructors.Ž Two BVI women captains … Trish Baily, who offers captain-only charters aboard the 50-foot Beneteau Serendipity and Pat Nolan, owner and principal instructor at Sistership Sailing School … both came into the profession through the galley. I began sailing later in life after I had left University in Australia and started travelling in Europe,Ž explains Baily. I got a job cooking on a 71-foot charter yacht in the Med in 1976 and from there learnt to tie a bowline. Later, the captain of a Swan I worked on for three months for Antigua Sailing Week, then raced to Bermuda and Annapolis, taught me a huge lesson. There was a kiwi female on the boat and she and I were always trying to roar around the deck and grind winches and hoist sails and do better than the guys. The captain said to me one day: Anyone can do that. If you want to get into sailing, learn navigation. After that, he started to teach me coastal and celestial navigation.Ž Nolan started out chef“ng aboard a Swan 65 in the Med. It was the hardest work Ive ever done on a boat,Ž she says. I worked ten times harder than the captain. At the end of that stint I knew what job I wanted … captain. I got my USCG license, my ASA instructor credentials and ultimately started my own business after teaching for another company for several years.Ž Theres no such thing as a typical day for a women in the maritime profession. For example, says Nolan, teaching a crew who have never raced before to set and douse spinnakers, work every station of a race boat competently enough after four days, then get on the race course in a regatta the likes of Rolex, Antigua or BVI Spring Regatta is a tremendous challenge.Ž Baily adds, Running Serendipity on captain-only charters involves everything from managing the accounts and promoting the boat to servicing the engine, varnishing and keeping the boat in good order.Ž What do these captains offer as advice for other women who would like to follow in their wake? Get as much sailing experience on as many boats as possible,Ž Nolan recommends. Experience is the best teacher. With plenty of experience you can con“dently and calmly handle any situation that arises.Ž Baily agrees and adds, Currently everyone seems to expect to be paid for being on a boat from day one, but jumping on boats for experience and not expecting wages can lead to a wealth of experience that ultimately will pay off.Ž Seek out opportunities,Ž says Sinclair. If you are thinking about going to college, consider a Maritime Academy like U.S. Merchant Marine Academy in Kings Point, NY. There are many maritime schools. Get credentialed, get on-the-water experience and work in as many environs as possible.Ž Finally, Bowdish recommends, Find a mentor, male or female, who believes in your abilities and who may be able to open doors for you.

48 ALLATSEA.NET MARCH 2014 Technology AIS, or the Automatic Identi“cation System, was originally developed to aid in the safe navigation and collision avoidance of large vessels entering and exiting busy waterways and ports. Today it has morphed into a plethora of affordable electronic products and gadgets that will help anybody on the water have better situational awareness and avoid collisions. This technology allows boaters to identify and view vessels in near proximity to them and safely and seamlessly determine who they are and in what direction they are traveling. As any boater knows this can prove to be a great help in busy waters, night or day, in good weather and bad. Originally mandated in 2002 as an International Convention of Safety Of Life At Sea (SOLAS) requirement, vessels of 300 gross tons or more had to be equipped with a Class A AIS system. These systems comprise a transceiver, antenna, GPS, integrated display, 12W transmit power, able to interface with other onboard equipment and have a transmit rate of every few seconds. The AIS information is transmitted and received through two dedicated VHF frequencies at rates from two to ten seconds depending on vessel speed and contains extensive data such as: Maritime Mobile Service Identity (MMSI) number, navigation status, rate of turn, the latitude and longitude, course over ground, true heading, true bearing and abbreviated time the data was generated. It also will display over longer six minute intervals data that is more useful to port authorities and marine traf“c regulators such as: IMO ships number, radio call sign, vessel name and type, dimensions, draught, destination and ETA to destination. All this information is useful to have whether you are a maritime controller for a port authority, a captain of a freighter entering a busy shipping lane or a cruiser trying to stay out of the path of a much larger vessel. This system proved to be extremely valuable in collision avoidance, coastal security, accident investigations, and as a navigation aid. For those cruisers or recreational boaters looking to avoid collisions while in heavily traveled waters there is a more inexpensive alternative to Class A AIS that is explod-AIS ADVANCING NAVIGATION TECHNOLOGY BY GLENN HAYES


MARCH 2014 ALLATSEA.NET 49ing in popularity. It is the Class B AIS. It can come in many forms and is a scaled-down version of the Class A units. There are full-featured Class B transceivers such as Vesper Marines ( Watchmate series that have integrated displays and install easily on smaller vessels either by splitting into existing VHF antennas or using a dedicated antenna. They feature built-in GPS antennas and stand-alone capability or can be hooked to an external GPS and interfaced with existing displays and equipment. Other advantages to these less expensive yet feature rich AIS units is low power consumption (2-3 watts), alarms (including an anchor alarm), information “ltering and multiple pro“les. Some of Vespers units even have touch screen displays and Wi-Fi capability so you can view the information on your tablet or smartphone. Information provided by Class B units is slightly more limited than their Class A big brothers. Data includes vessels MMSI number, speed over ground, course over ground, latitude and longitude and true heading. Transmission is at a lower 2 watts and transmit rates can be up to every 30 seconds. These systems are designed not to step on the transmissions of Class A units and to broadcast in between Class A transmissions. Another fast-growing segment of the AIS boon is the receiver only segment. These units are capable of receiving AIS signals but have no way to transmit ones own vessel information. These are proving very popular with smaller craft and those not requiring all the features of a full Class B unit. One example of such a unit is the Standard Matrix VHF with integrated AIS. This VHF radio takes advantage of its receiver and monitors the two frequencies utilized by AIS. It has the capability of displaying the Class B information on its display screen. When connected to a GPS it even has the capability of displaying AIS targets. The screen is small and the information is limited but this unit provides valuable information in a small and inexpensive package. Other receivers can be interfaced with existing multi-function displays. The small black box units can be tied into existing navigation systems and can display the pertinent information on chart plotter and radar screens. Small stand-alone displays are also available that will also interface but give redundancy to vital collision avoidance information. AIS has also developed in other ways and has allowed for some interesting and useful applications such as AIS-SART, a Search And Rescue Transponder that utilizes AIS data to help in the fast recovery of a life raft or vessel in distress. Transmitting the AIS data and a distress signal, vessels monitoring the AIS frequencies will have data shown in their displays, easily identifying and locating the vessel in distress. There are also the new personal AIS such as Kannads SafeLink R10 man overboard AIS. This compact unit that can attach to a life vest can be manually activated and will transmit an AIS signal Ft.

An AIS SART icon will appear on their screen with GPS coordinates of the MOB, allowing for fast recovery. AIS is also being developed to create virtual beacons and boundaries. Jeff Robbins of Vesper Marine described an AIS beacon the company set up in New Zealand. He explained that there was a particular submerged rock that threatened vessels entering a cove on the rugged coast of New Zealands South Island. Buoys had marked the rock but were constantly drifting off station or being lost due to heavy seas and rough conditions. Vesper was called in and created a self-maintaining and autonomous beacon on one of the nearby cliff tops that transmits the virtual buoy information to all vessels within range, marking the rock with a virtual beacon to all vessels with AIS. Vesper was also responsible for setting the virtual marks and boundaries at the recent Americas Cup in San Francisco utilizing its AIS technology. With government funding diminishing for maintenance of actual buoys and markers it is very possible that in the not too distant future many buoys will be replaced with virtual counterparts. New to the world of AIS is the recently developing AIS Class E. This is a cellular-based AIS system that relies on

The new feature this year is that we involved the LAB sports academy, so the children had the opportunity to do some sporting activities after the clean up. Even drinks and snacks were sponsored by local companies!Ž Over 100 BVI students received re-usable water bottles last year after they toured the BVISR host venue at Nanny Cay Marina. The give-away served to educate students about the environmentally-friendly nature of the regatta. For the tour, Miles Sutherland-Pilch, general manager of Nanny Cay, explained what it takes to prepare for and host an international regatta; Geoff Brooks, curator of the Virgin Islands Maritime Museum, showed the students one of the historic Tortola sloops, and the crew on the USAs Tom Mullens J/120 Shamrock invited the kids to come aboard to see the workings of a modern race boat. There are other even more creative ways students and regatta organizers have worked together. For example, explains Petz, The last three years in a row “ve or six students have contacted us for information because they are doing a project on the regatta. Projects have included business plans and the history of sailing in the territory. In addition, a BVI student currently studying in the UK is writing her dissertation for a degree in event management about how the Spring Regatta impacts the BVI both socially and economically. Thats something that Im looking forward to reading.Ž Overall interest in sailing among the local youth has increased as a result of these regatta-school partnerships, says Bos. Participation in the St. Maarten Yacht Club Sailing School has grown over the past “ve years from 35 children to 60. In addition, students from Milton Peters College are racing with the St. Maarten Sailing School. The students must volunteer as part of these training programs. This means that they will help us with preparations for the regatta, like getting the race equipment ready. Students from both these programs will have the fun of racing in this years St. Maarten Heineken Regatta.Ž Carol M.

58 ALLATSEA.NET MARCH 2014 Dominican RepublicDOMINICAN REPUBLICSTORY AND PHOTOS BY TASHA HACKER After three months of cruising through the Bahamas, past countless white sand shores, aquamarine harbors and secluded isles, I begin to wonder if I am being confronted with some kind of beautiful Spot the Changes game, where the only difference from one island to the next is the number of palm trees on it. Our cruising friends in the Bahamas are making plans to move in one of two directions … back north towards Florida or, like us, south to the Caribbean. Most are surprisingly uninterested in stopping in the Dominican Republic. Ive heard its dirty,Ž they say, and set sail for Puerto Rico. But Im curious about this expansive Caribbean island with a dirty reputation and want to see for myself what it is really like. When I “nally step foot on shore in Lupern, after a 34hour sail from Little Inagua, I am reeling from exhaustion A DIFFERENT KIND OF CRUISERS PLAYGROUNDPlaya Caleton, a gem hidden behind the mangroves Climbing through the canyons at the 27 Charcos in Damajagua


MARCH 2014 ALLATSEA.NET 59 and nearly fall asleep in the airless sauna of an immigration room where Im writing down my boats name, registration number and crew details for what feels like the tenth time, each time shelling out another ten-dollar fee. Eventually, with stamped documents in hand, I wander aimlessly out of the customs of“ce in search of a cold drink, trying to shake off the salt from my long journey. And as I enter town, I am immediately smacked in the senses by loud, Latin music; quick Spanish chatter; jagged green mountains; motoconcho drivers yelling in my direction; the sticky scent of overripe mangoes and dogs scratching at their ”eas as they roll around in the middle of the road. It is overwhelming. And, yes, it is dirty. Because the Dominican Republic, wonderfully, has dirt. After a day and a half sail, suddenly, my barren, birdless Bahamian surroundings are replaced by deliciously gritty, musical streets full of Dominicans chattering and hanging their laundry from brightly-painted cinder walls; friendly passersby stopping to help me find my way (Are you looking for Wendys Bar? Free WiFi?Ž) and more animal life in one neighborhood than in the whole of the Bahamas. It is sensory overload, and I am so energized by it, I practically squeal with delight as I kick off my deck shoes, throw my charts in the air and start running for the hills. Well ƒ not really, since I need my charts and I dont wear deck shoes. But I do trade my ”ip-”ops for running shoes as soon as I discover how many hundreds of miles there are to explore by car, foot, Guagua (local bus) and motorbike in the Dominican Republic. So, once Ive had my “ll of Lupern, I hit the road and head for towns like Cabarete. Here Dominicans and expats from all over the world gather to go mountain climbing or take to the water sur“ng, windsur“ng, kiteboarding and paddleboarding. I drive a motorbike along the coast to Rio San Juan, where I drop in to beautiful beaches populated by Dominican families, jump off cliffs into cool spring waters and paddleboard around winding lagoons. My travels take me to the heart of rural towns to chat with Dominicans over cold Presidente beer and the soundtrack of Salsa, Bachata, and Merengue. The cruisers who avoided the Dominican Republic were right. It is nothing like the Bahamas. The Dominican Republic is dynamic, loud, sporty, tropical and inexpensive. So inexpensive I can eat out every night, take Spanish classes and kiteboarding lessons and not break the bank. Sure, in the Bahamas I can anchor anywhere, near any island, and everything I care to see is within walking distance or a dinghy ride from the boat. And I am always guaranteed a white-sand-and-crystal-blue-water view from my cockpit while I sip sundowners and eat home-cooked meals on

But here I have the opportunity to get off the boat and push my mind, body and senses to their limits by diving into Dominican culture, practicing my Spanish, taking up sur“ng and kiteboarding, eating mofongo and exploring this vast country by hiking and driving long distances. To see the places this country has to offer, though, I have to spend a good amount of time away from my boat, which isnt very cruiser-like. But after six months of living in a closet-sized space with my husband and our two cats, I realize I am more than thrilled to leave the boat and explore land to my hearts content. In essence, the Dominican Republic is a different kind of cruising ground. Its not one where you can sail from island to island in just a few hours, or “nd a safe anchorage anywhere. In fact, there are few anchorages along the coast. But its a destination that offers a rich, dynamic experience for those who dare to get off the boat.

This is the secret to success that has led Club Nautico de San Juans (CNSJ) director of sailing and head coach Jose Yoyo Berrios to put Puerto Rico on the map as a global sailing power. Berrios, a San Juan native, grew up in a sailing household. His parents owned a J/29 that they would cruise to the British Virgin Islands on long weekends and holidays. Puerto Rico A few years later, they added a Topper (11ft single-handed sailing dinghy) to the familys ”eet to give Berrios and his brothers a craft of their own to skipper. I was eight at the time and not heavy enough to sail the Topper well,Ž Berrios explains. My parents enrolled me in the “rst summer sailing classes at CNSJ, so I could learn to sail correctly and from a professional.

MARCH 2014 ALLATSEA.NET 65 Puerto Rico They held a small regatta at the end of the “rst session. I took “rst. It gave me the excitement to keep going.Ž On weekends, Berrios family traveled to Fajardo where the Puerto Rico Sailing Federation held an instructional program in Lasers. Berrios battled the heavy winds and huge seas outside the breakwater at Marina Puerto del Rey, following the bigger kids, and capsizing often. It wasnt until 1993 that avid sailor Jose Fuentes introduced the Optimist to Puerto Rico for his son to sail. Berrios was age 15 at the time and the Optimist was too small for him. His younger brother Alejandro was just the right age and size for the Opti. It wasnt long before Berrios was tapped by a group of parents to coach the ”edging Optimist sailors. My “rst thought was how would I have time to sail in regattas and also coach,Ž he explains. At the same time, I enjoyed using my knowledge and receiving training as a coach from guest coaches.Ž Berrios made his coaching debut at age 16 at the Optimist South American Championships in Ecuador. The international press easily mistook him for a competitor. Hurricane Georges devastated the training facility in Fajardo. Sail instruction then shifted to the San Juan Bay Marina. Not long after a member of CNSJ ventured across the bay and asked Berrios to head up the Clubs sailing program. Berrios did this part-time while assisting the setting up of an Optimist sail training program in Ponce. In 1998, he took the position at CNSJ fulltime. My goal when I started was to develop the sport of sailing for younger kids, ages six and seven, and do for them what I wasnt able to do,Ž Berrios explains. Plus, I always wanted to develop a year-round program, not one that just operated on the weekends or in the summer.Ž More than a decade later Berrios has accomplished both goals. Graduates of his program include Raul Rios, who won the 2008 Optimist World Championships, and Juanky Perdomo, who earned a Gold Medal in Boys Laser Radial at the 2013 ISAF Youth Worlds. Yet his to-do list is far from “nished. Where I am now with CNSJ is developing a program where we have teams that can compete in dinghies like Optimists and Lasers as well as in keelboats like IC24s and CSA race boats. At the same time, I introduced private lessons for adults a few years ago and this program has grown. My goal is a complete program for the whole family to sail … children, their parents and grandparents.Ž Berrios, who holds a degree in electrical engineering from the Polytechnic University of Puerto Rico, has discovered that he still has time to enjoy racing and cruising. Hes crewed aboard Jamie Torres Beneteau First 40 and now Melges 32, both called Smile and Wave in events such as Puerto Ricos Heineken Regatta and St. Thomas International Rolex Regatta. More recently, he chartered a Beneteau 50 with a group of friends and sailed the BVI over the Thanksgiving holiday. My vision is to use my skills to grow the sport of sailing even further in Puerto Rico,Ž Berrios said.

MARCH 2014 ALLATSEA.NET 69 Antigua CHRISTMAS CARIBBEAN RALLY THE MODERN CARIBBEAN DREAM More than 2000 yachts cross the Atlantic Ocean every year with the vast majority of sailors looking for the adventure of a lifetime. Since the 1980s organized rallies have become very popular, the Atlantic Rally for Cruisers is the biggest, with nearly 300 yachts taking part each year but the biggest is not necessarily the best! The “rst ever Christmas Caribbean Rally (CCR) was very different. The CCR is conceived to give a personal experience, a boutique event designed to suit modern day life. After taking part in the ARC in 2011, I just thought it could be done a different way.Ž commented John Simpson, Managing Director of Sailing Rallies. Life is not the same as it was 30 years ago and we wanted to re”ect those changes in a well-organized Atlantic rally. We also felt that it was very important to make sure the sailors found the experience magical. Crossing an ocean is many sailors life-long ambition and it should be very special, a unique and personal event.Ž The rally started on December 16th, much later than the ARC. This was chosen to allow sailors to sail across the Atlantic during the festive holiday season. Meaning less time off work and away from study and by mid-December the trade winds are usually well established. Alex Merzlecko and his son Konstantin from Russia were on board the Humphreys 77, Ocean Phoenix which completed the crossing in 13 days. Alex spoke about the event before the start. It will be a great experience to cross the Atlantic with my son. The timing of the rally means that Konstantin will not miss any school time during the crossing and we intend to spend a week exploring the Caribbean when we arrive, before we ”y back to a snow-covered Moscow. This will not be my “rst trip to the Caribbean but to sail across the ocean to get there will be a “rst for me with my son. I am sure it will be a memory we will both treasure for years to come.Ž The CCR was extremely well organized. All of the yachts were scrutinised for safety before the start and were all “tted with satellite trackers for the crossing. Prior to that start, sailors were given expert advice in all manner of useful seminars, including a weather and routing master class from renowned meteorological expert Mike Broughton Family Affair … Nikolay Zakharevich and crew aboard Frizzanta a Beneteau Oceanis 41 PHOTOS AND STORY BY LOUAY HABIB

The later departure provided good winds right from the start and the yachts sailed all the way without having to use their engines. Traditionally, people would avoid spending Christmas at sea but I think that has now changed. If you leave in November its a busy time for businesses and its not in the school holidays. It was interesting to see that the rally attracted students and people in work and the timing meant they were using a time when they would be away from work or study anyway. Marina Rubicon in Lanzarote has been so supportive and the marina had everything any yacht needs to prepare for the crossing, from well stocked supermarkets to comprehensive boat maintenance facilities.Ž As the yachts “nished the Sailing Rallies team were on hand in Jolly Harbour to welcome them home, organizing a prize giving and a full schedule of entertainment including a New Years Eve party, rum tasting and seminars on sailing in the Caribbean islands. Sailing Rallies next event will be the Baltic 4 Nation Rally this summer. The second Christmas Caribbean Rally will leave Lanzarote on December 14.

74 ALLATSEA.NET MARCH 2014 MartiniqueMARTINIQUE: THE BELLE ISLANDPHOTOS AND STORY BY MARK STEVENS If youve dropped the hook off a village called Trois Islets in the southern reaches of one of the Windwards most picturesque islands, youre not even overnighting in Martiniques best anchorage. That one you have to “nd on your own. While Chris Doyle extols the delights of sailing the Windward Islands … and hes right on the money, theres a caveat: the allure of the belle island is such that you might even forget about the sailing. For there is a certain je ne sais quoi about this islands appeal, something I cant quite put my “nger on. It might be the beach I discover at Anse Mitan, perfect waters ruf”ed like a blue lace collar, a ”eet of sailboats anchored just offshore, swaying in a stately sarabande. Maybe its the accent of a pretty girl at Bistrot den Face who lets me sample a couple of rum agricoles before I “nally decide on one that, served up in a brandy snifter, sends a warm glow through my body. Or maybe its just the views … the setting sun gilding the buildings hugging the hills of Fort de France, seemingly tossed helter-skelter on the indigo slopes of a mountain whose peak is swathed in (how could it be otherwise?) a diaphanous negligee of cumulous clouds. Maybe its a certain savoire-faire … or laissez-faire … or just that rum agricole I sip in a bar that could hold its own on the Champs Elysees, replete with the islands best selection of wines and a stainless steel bar imported from France. I wanted a bit of home here,Ž explains Fabrice, the proprietor, as he pours me another rum, HSE by name, as golden and shimmering as the riches the Spanish once sought here, though they promptly deserted the island when they came up empty-handed. The British had the right idea but the French were the smartest of all. A seminal Caribbean sea battle … the Battle of the Saintes … began in this very bay fronting Fort de France in 1782. The French lost, but they kept Martinique: their tri-color ”ies over the colonial fort that gives its name to the capital, French colonial architecture dots the landscape, French The Bay off Fort de France is a popular anchorage for both locals and cruisers seeking a bit of shore bound excitement. The beaches off Point du Bout are convenient to bistros and boutiques and offer panoramic views of Fort de France, the capital.

MARCH 2014 ALLATSEA.NET 77 Martinique and Creole are the prevailing languages, bistros and “ne dining abound. Three hundred sixty restaurants here,Ž says Martinique Tourisms Christel Coita. But this is only part of the allure that beckons you here with the wiles of a Paris courtesan. Lush valleys in the middle undulate in the trade winds, emerald waves of sugar cane “elds stand together with pineapple and banana groves. Tree-decorated mountains rise up in the north; here you traverse switchback roads that offer jaw-dropping views of valleys festooned with waterfalls and sea vistas that make you wish, for a while, you were back out there on the waters of one of the Caribbeans bare-boating capitals. But then you stop at a place called the Emerald Estate across the valley from the peak of Mt. Pelee, where you discover the islands biodiversity and hike the rainforest, inhaling scents as aromatic as a Left Bank parfumerie. So you continue your tour ashore. You sample rum at Depaz Distillery … cognizant of the fact that your blossoming tte--tte with Martinique may be alcohol-inspired. Or maybe not. It might be the aromas wafting from the baguette shop down the street. Perhaps its that designer shirt you picked up at a shopping center boasting admittedly ersatz architecture, though it seems real enough … buildings boasting wrought iron balconies, gingerbread trim, and storm shutters painted teal and tangerine that shelter more boutiques per square foot than Rodeo Drive. And thats before you even venture down Rue de la Republique in Fort de France, the only place in the Windwards for Paris fashions and stylish clothing shops,Ž writes Doyle in his Cruising Guide to the Windwards. At this point in my mental peregrinations, ensconced in that bar just down Rue du Chacha from the tip of Pointe du Bout, I raise my glass in a toast. Je taime, Martinique,Ž I say. Je taime.Ž I am, in short, smitten by an island thats a bit of Europe in the Caribbean … a place that reminds you that the French invented ambiance, though here theyve decorated it with Gauguin landscapes. But this explanation doesnt go far enough. In a cultural Gestalt where the whole is greater than the sum of the parts, or more appropriately, in the way a Creole pepper pot is so much spicier than mere haute cuisine, Martinique is a mlange. Consider zouk music, a blend of Caribbean and American that had its birth here, or belya dancing, a celebration heavily in”uenced by African roots. And thats when it hits me. Martinique is all these things and more. The Caribs called it Madiana … the Island of Flowers. I call it Belle Island. Tres belle.

Organized by the Barbados Cruising Club in association with the Barbados Tourism Authority and Mount Gay, this annual event played its part in kick-starting the Caribbean racing season. With just under 50 boats from all around the world, plus a strong Caribbean contingent, close competition prevailed throughout the week. One of the strongest classes was the J/24 with ten boats racing. Big winds and big seas put crews through their paces.

However, we did it and held our position to the “nish.Ž Barbadian Neil Burke and his team on Impulse took second place, while Hawkeye “nished third overall. The Mount Gay-sponsored J/24, Bunga Bunga concluded with a “nal race win, which placed them in fourth overall. Local team on Rapajam Ralph Johnsons Beneteau First 53, enjoyed close competition in Racing class against Peter Lewiss J/105 Whistler from the UK, and another British boat, Idea a Reichel Pugh 78 owned by John Wilson and skippered by local Clint Brooks. With two “rsts and a second, Johnson (74) and his family and friends on Rapajam were deemed overall class winners. The Cruising class enjoyed equally close racing with Tom Slades Santa Cruz 52 from the USA, Renegade taking the overall class win. Bryn Palmer, from Barbados, was out and about zipping around the course in the Supercat 30, Silver Bullet and although he did have competition from Ben Armstrong in a Hobie 21, he “nished the series with three wins. Unfortunately, Armstrong had to retire in the “nal race when his boat suffered damage in a collision with the Beneteau Spirit of Venus soon after the start. Another popular class was the Non Rated class. With ten boats racing, this ”eet produced some interesting competition particularly at the top end of the ”eet between David Spielers Beneteau 47 Leonora from BVI, and Bill Tempros Bavaria 46, My Mistress With three wins in the bag, Leonora was the overall winner. My Mistress and the well-sailed local Catalina 40, Ten Seven “nished second and third, respectively. We are thrilled to have retained the trophy we “rst captured last year, and even more satis“ed to have won it with three clear wins,Ž said Leonora s Spieler. It has been a “rst class regatta with great competition, great winds and great parties.Ž Die Hard Island Water World suffered the biggest knockdownPHOTO: PETER MARSHALL

82 ALLATSEA.NET MARCH 2014 Barbados The Mount Gay Round Barbados Race held on Tuesday 21 January, was spectacular with 36 boats tackling the 60mile course clockwise around the island. First to “nish was solo sailor Peter Allen aboard his catamaran, Stiletto who completed the course in 7h 53m 55s. However, the biggest prize of the day … for an outright win based on elapsed time … went to Raphal Grisoni and his Mount Gay team aboard the British VO70, Monster Project Monster Project completed the course in 4h 42m 28s, knocking 21 minutes off the previous record established in 2012 by Idea Idea however, broke the CSA record for corrected time. Andy Budgen, owner and crew boss of Monster Project said he was absolutely delighted with the teams performance. To be honest it was a bit of a shock to have broken the record. The team sailed exceptionally well, which, of course, was the key to our amazing achievement. Hopefully well be able to return next year and defend our title, assuming we are still around after drinking our skippers weight in rum which was our prize for winning.Ž Peter Gilkes, consultant to the Barbados Tourism Authority for Yachting Development, said he couldnt have wished for a better regatta. It is a youthful event but with tremendous possibilities for growth and development. I dont see a Barbados Round The Island Race Series ever being a massive regatta with 500 or 600 yachts but what I do forecast is this event in the next few years attracting some of the elite of world sailing to our shores and, as we saw from this years event, some of the owners of some very smart yachts made a special effort to visit Barbados to do this event.

112 ALLATSEA.NET MARCH 2014 Caribbean Dining & Provisioning THE DISH BY CAPN JAN ROBINSON The brassica family of vegetables, which includes Brussels sprouts, broccoli, cabbage, cauli”ower, and kale, is one of your most powerful weapons in warding off many common diseases. All fruits and vegetables are valuable sources of nutrients that “ght disease. They are naturally low in fat, cholesterol, calories, and sodium; but rich in potassium, “ber, folic acid, beta-carotene and vitamins C and K. BROCCOLLI WITH CUMIN AND GARLICPrep time: 15 minutes. Cooking time: 15 minutes. Serves: 4 2 tbsp peanut oil tsp mustard seeds tsp cumin seeds Pinch of asafoetida powder (also know as Hing) In a heavy-bottomed frying pan over medium heat. Add oil, mustard seeds and toast, stirring. When they begin to pop like popcorn, add the cumin seeds and asafoetida. Stir, and as soon as the cumin seeds begin to darken visibly, add the garlic and turmeric. Stir again to incorporate the turmeric, then immediately add the broccoli and sprinkle with a little salt. Stir a few more times, to get the ”avored oil all over the broccoli, then add a couple of tablespoons of water to the pan and loosely cover to allow broccoli to steam. When the broccoli is bright green and tender-crisp, lift the lid, turn the heat up to high and boil off any remaining water Stir one more time to get all of the garlic bits and spices on the broccoli and serve immediately, still piping hot. Note: Other members of the Brassica family may be cooked in the same way. Note: Asafoetida is an ingredient often used in vegetarian Indian cooking, but the recipe will still taste good without it.GUACAMOLE ON POTATO SKINS Prep time: 15 minutes.
