8 ALLATSEA.NET APRIL 2014 Editors Log As this edition of All At Sea goes to press, St. Maarten is gearing up for the Heineken Regatta. The regatta, now in its 34th year, is a striking example of how Caribbean regattas have evolved. Big budgets, social media, television, international entertainers ƒ and thats before we do any sailing. Watching a large sailing event being put together is like watching a volcano spring to life. First, you get a low rumbling, then a whiff of sulfur followed by a wisp of smoke. Eventually the pressure builds, the rumbling becomes a roar and, seeking relief, a mighty explosion puts all that effort on public display. Like a volcano, many things must come together at the same time if a regatta is to explode onto the scene with gusto. Although most large sailing events are now run by professional, yearround staff, all regattas rely heavily on volunteers without whom they would never “zz. The St. Maarten Heineken Regatta relies on an army of 150 volunteers to make it work, and Im certain that other large regattas have similar numbers. Rarely seen, and grossly under appreciated by the sailors, enthusiastic volunteers make the difference between a regatta going off with a spectacular bang or “zzling out with little more than a choking cough. When you meet a volunteer at a regatta, shake their hand and say thanks. Its such a simple thing to do and it goes a long way towards making a good regatta even better. As a scuba diver, albeit a timid one, I welcome the news of the new hyperbaric treatment facility at the Discovery Bay Marine Lab in Jamaica (p30). The Caribbean offers some of the “nest recreational diving in the world. If you think the islands are spectacular, you should see the stunning beauty beneath the waters around them. Recreational divers are usually well trained and cautious and although the chances of them getting the bends are slim, it does happen. Far more at risk are harvesting divers eking a dangerous living from the ocean without training and proper equipment. On their website, the Divers Alert Network (DAN) say they maintain an up-to-date list of all functioning hyperbaric chambers in North America and the Caribbean. However, they do not publish this list, since at any one time a given chamber may be non-functioning, or its operator(s) may be away or otherwise unavailable. The website notes that current information is regularly phoned into DAN by chamber personnel. Through Duke Medical Centre, DAN operates a 24-hour emergency phone line for anyone to call and ask for diving accident assistance. Dive medicine physicians at Gary E. Brown, Editor Duke carry beepers, so someone is always on call to answer questions and, if necessary, make referral to the closest functioning hyperbaric chamber. The emergency HOT LINE phone number is: 919-684-8111. Have you ever restored a yacht? I have, and it almost broke me “nancially and mentally. Time plays a major role and there can be nothing worse for a sailor, most of whom are dreamers, to see their boat falling apart at a speed greater than at which it is being restored. I know of boats that have been undergoing a major rebuild for the last 20-years, out of the water and looking more like a bomb-damaged barn than a salt-water vessel. The trouble is, you fall in love with a boat and want it at any cost, and the ”aws, well, youll “x em. But for some, like me, there comes a point when you know its time to down tools, shed a tear and put the boat on the market. Its beaten you, time, cash, patience, blood ƒ theyve all run out. Your only hope is that someone with the wherewithal will pick up where you left off and restore your lover to her former glory. Anyone who takes on a major restoration and sees it through to the end has my respect and admiration. On page 80, there is one such success story. When Danielle and Didier Remacle found the famous commercial “shing boat, El Zorro she was an abused mess. Now, once again, she is a thing of beauty. Perhaps I wont put my tools away after all. VOLUNTEERS DO IT BETTERSee you on the water! The editor restoring a classic ƒ He is now older and a little wiser

16 ALLATSEA.NET APRIL 2014 NewsCARIBBEAN NEWSA BRIEF LOOK INTO THE HAPPENINGS OF OUR WORLD Island Water World to co-sponsor Open Caribbean Laser ChampionshipsThe Open Caribbean Heineken Light Laser Championships (June 13-15), has a new format and co-sponsor. With Island Water World back on board after a break of many years, organizer Frits Bus says the championships, one of the oldest and largest one-design regattas in the Caribbean, will offer more than ever. This year will again feature a training regatta in St. Barths in the weekend prior to the Championship,Ž said Bus. This will make it more lucrative for the visiting sailors who can enjoy two regattas combined with three training days in St. Barth.Ž According to Bus, participants will train with top Caribbean sailor Benoit Meesemacker, who ranked fourth in the Laser Master Worlds. Bus said that with affordable accommodations in St. Barths, and in St. Martin courtesy of Club Orient at Baie Orientale, this is a must for any Laser sailor in the Caribbean or abroad. Former Caribbean Champion Raoul Aguyo (from the Dominican Republic), along with many past winners have promised to take part in the regatta. For more info, Email Frits Bus: New boat show for PanamaThe company known for its orchestration of the Fort Lauderdale and Palm Beach International Boat shows is adding another show to its roster. Fort Lauderdale-based Show Management said it is launching the inaugural Panama International Boat Show on June 20-22 at the Flamenco Marina on Flamenco Island in Panama. Central and South America are two of the fastest growing regions in the world, both in general economic growth and growth of the marine industry,Ž Show Management CEO Efrem Skip Zimbalist III, said in a statement. Flamenco Marina is located near downtown Panama City and features 238 boat slips, a fuel dock, nine restaurants, and a new dry stack storage facility thats under construction. Source: South Florida Business JournalOne-Design Race Area returns to BVI Spring RegattaBack by popular request, the BVI Spring Regattas onedesign race area will be part of the 2014 regatta (March 31April 6). For years the BVI Spring Regatta and Sailing Festival had three separate race areas. It has been a signature of the Spring Regatta to give the classes more selection and the race of“cers more options. Having a race area speci“cally for one-design boats has worked to great advantage. The one-design was started for the IC24s, (converted J24) and now will include the fast growing J-70 ”eet. With the one-design area, the race committee can set courses that allow these boats to have up to “ve races a day. The course they can set on the ”y with existing wind conditions is fantastic. The sailors can maximize their time on the water and get plenty of tight racing among the one-design boats,Ž says Robert Phillips, Race Committee Chairman.


18 ALLATSEA.NET APRIL 2014 News West Marine opens new store in Puerto RicoWest Marine has opened a new store at the Eastern Shopping Plaza in Fajardo, Puerto Rico. The expansive store will serve boaters and sailors who enjoy the waters in and around Culebra, Palomino and St. Thomas. At 16,000 square feet, this is the largest West Marine store in Puerto Rico and will serve an active coastal region. The new store has set aside a large area for “shing supplies and boasts a newly created engine parts section. In a press release, West Marine said the 19-person West Marine crew has several hundred years of boating, “shing and sailing experience between them and collectively have cruised thousands of nautical miles. Puerto Ricans and visitors of the region appreciate the outdoors and enjoying life as much as possible,Ž said General Manager Pedro Monge, a Puerto Rican native and lifelong marine enthusiast who has been with West Marine for more than 13-years. The Fajardo location in particular was designed to meet the needs of this community and we are excited to have the opportunity to serve them year-round.Ž Seaborne Airlines increase services within Caribbean Seaborne Airlines, the fastest growing airline in the Caribbean, announce the launch of service to its 18th airport, Las Amricas International Airport in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, with non-stop service from Luis Munoz Marin International Airport in San Juan, effective April 15 2014. Santo Domingo will be Seabornes fourth destination within the Dominican Republic, the others being La Romana; Punta Cana and Santiago. San Juan to Santo Domingo provides another access point to the U.S. market and reinforces the importance of Puerto Rico as a connecting point in the Caribbean,Ž said Gary D. Foss, president and chief executive of“cer of SeaStar Holdings, parent company of Seaborne. All markets are planned to have daily service and will no doubt benefit yachts wishing to pick up or drop off crew.FKG Rigging and Horny Toad donate to St. Maarten Yacht Club Youth Program FKG Rigging and the Horny Toad Guesthouse stepped up to the mark and shared the cost of a new RS Vision dinghy, which they then donated to the St. Maarten Yacht Club Youth Sailing Program.

Easy to install, the “lters are a direct replacement for the stock paper elements (part # 8N6309 & 4P-0710) that are currently available from the Caterpillar factory or various aftermarket manufacturers of paper air “lters. Up until now, there has not been a high performance air “lter available for these engines,Ž states Michael DeLillo, vice-president of sales and marketing for Walker Engineering. These high-performance air “lters are an excellent choice for superyachts because they are washable and reusable, and thats important when cruising in remote areas or in countries where import-duties makes ordering spare “lters very expensive.Ž Walker air “lters are available direct from the manufacturer and from select dealers.

The CNSJIR Race Committee reveled in the brisk conditions launching as many as 13 races in one of the six classes that sailed both on and outside San Juan Bay. We are very happy with the success of this years regatta,Ž explains Luis Fabre, chairman of the CNSJIR organizing committee. We wondered a few years ago how the addition of the bigger boats would “t in with the dinghies, but it has worked well by giving us a good diversity of classes.Ž In the seven-boat CSA Spinnaker class, which included three Melges 32s, it was Puerto Ricos Jonathan Lipusceks J/105 Dark Star that won with a decisive “ve “rsts in six races. The Melges 32s werent far behind. Puerto Ricos Luis Juarbe, on SOCA “nished second while fellow islander, Jaime Torres, driving Smile and Wave was third. The second keelboat class of the regatta, the seven-boat IC24s, saw Puerto Ricos Fraito Lugos Orion take the lead and hold it until the end scoring eight “rsts in 13 races. We are in the selection process to see what J24 team will represent Puerto Rico in the Central American-Caribbean Games in November in Mexico,Ž says Lugo. The IC24 is excellent for practice for the J24 because the CAC Games format calls for a con“guration of 105% jib, spinnaker and main with four crew.Ž Puerto Ricos Marco Teixidor driving his IC24, Cachondo YACHT CLUB NEWS SHARE YOUR HAPPENINGS WITH THE CARIBBEAN COMMUNITY “nished second, with Puerto Ricos Carlos Sierra aboard Fuakata in third. The dinghy classes have long been the foundation of CNSJIR. In fact, true to past years, the largest class was the Optimist Advanced with 13 boats. Antiguas Daniel Smit, who “nished “rst in this regatta last year in the Optimist Green Fleet, won the overall this year as well as the 11 to 12-year-old Blue Fleet. Weve been practicing in heavy winds back home in Antigua these last few weeks. That really helped a lot in this regatta,Ž Smit tells. Anguillas Huekeemi Hughes won the 13 to 15-year-old Optimist Red Fleet, while Puerto Ricos Jose Mendez scored a win in the age ten and under Optimist White Fleet. This years Optimist Green ”eet leader was Puerto Ricos Marc Thys. The Laser ”eets were equally full of talent. Puerto Ricos Agustin Lazaro-Lugo won the Laser Radial class with six “rst place “nishes in 12 races. Lazaro-Lugo is attempting to qualify to represent Puerto Rico in the Laser Radial class at the ISAF Youth Sailing World Championships, which will be held in Portugal in July. Second place Laser Radial “nisher, Rhne Findlay, will be representing his home island of St. Maarten in the ISAF Youth Sailing World Championships. Rounding out third in this competitive class was Puerto Ricos Pedro Fernandez Gamboa. Puerto Ricos Ricardo Valenzuela led the Laser 4.7 class. Full results are available at: Report by Carol M.

22 ALLATSEA.NET APRIL 201412 VOLTS, FATTYSTYLE! BY CAPN FATTY GOODLANDERSailing Humor A friend of mine recently purchased a vessel to sail around the world, went down below, ”ipped a switch on the panel marked running lights „and nothing happened. He was dumbfounded. He did not know what to do next. So he called me up and asked, WTF?Ž It dawned on me that an increasing number of relatively intelligent owners, with very complex vessels, do not know the “rst thing about their electronics and electrical system. Lets see if we can remediate that„in a very practical, downto-earth way. This will be a win-win, because the newbies will learn something and those who already know that Ohms Law and chanting Om are different„will get a chuckle from me attempting to describe the complex as simplistically as possible. First off, everything I am about to tell you concerns 12 volts only. Most vessels have a 12 volt system for use away from the dock, and a 110 or 220 volt system to use while tied up or when the gen/set is running. These are different. 110 volts (and higher) can and will kill you„12 volts is much more benign. (You can think of voltage like the pressure in a hose„the higher the pressure, the more likely to cause damage.) The simplest thing to do, if you are tied up, is to unplug your power cord and then put it somewhere where nobody helpful can plug it back in. (Many a 110 volt electrician has died this way.) Okay. Were talking about 12 volts only (some bigger boats have 24 volts but were not going to get into that) and your shore cord is unplugged. Lets assume that most things are working on your boat„ thus, you know that your electrical system is mostly okay and functioning as designed. You just ”ipped on your running lights„and nothing happened. What to do? First, rejoice! This is a simple problem, and were going to “x it within a couple of minutes ƒ an hour, max. If your circuit breaker is different than your switch, make sure both are on and conducting electricity. Ditto, if theres a When it comes to solving electrical problems, this is $25 well spentPHOTO: OCEANMEDIA


APRIL 2014 ALLATSEA.NET 23fuse involved. The fuse or circuit breaker is often the cause„ and you can save a lot of time by checking them “rst. The cause of your problem is most likely saltwater corrosion. Something is preventing the electrons from ”owing through the wire, the same as if you parked your car on the garden hose or it broke or became blocked. I repeat„the electrical stuff you want to work aint working because it aint getting any juice„just like your car wont run without gas. Once you resupply your electric gizmo with electricity, it will work„presto! First, some simple theory„fear not, were not going to dwell on it. Everything electrical on your boat is connected to one side of your battery and the other. The electrons ”ow from the negative terminal on your battery, through the device (in this case, a running light or three) and then on to the positive terminal on the battery. If the device isnt working, there are only two reasons: (1) the device itself is defective, and (2) the wiring isnt getting 12 volts to the device. Number Two is almost always it. Trust me. But, just to be sure, lets start at the device. Take out the incandescent bulb„if it has one„and see if it has continuity. We use a volt/ohm meter to do this, widely available for ten to 20 bucks from Amazon, etc. Set the meter so it beeps when you touch the red lead to the black lead. Once you hear the beep, put one lead on one contact on the bulb and then the other lead on the other contact„and listen. If it beeps, the bulb is okay. If it does not, the bulb is burnt out and is not completing the circuit. Replace bulb. Done. But if three running lights are suppose to turn on and none do„chances are it aint three burnt bulbs, chances are almost 100% it is the wiring. I repeat: the commonest electrical job aboard is corroded wiring either making no contact or a poor contact. If you learn how to troubleshoot and “x this problem, 99% of your electrical woes will be a piece of cake. I actually look forward to “xing electrical stuff, because it is so easy, quick, and satisfying. Okay! We now know the bulb works. Yippee! We are making real progress. There are two terminals in the bulb socket. One is connected through your switch panel/circuit breaker to the positive side of the battery, and the other is (usually) connected directly to the negative side of your battery. Lets go to the battery„and test your test light. This is a tiny little thingy which looks like small screwdriver or ice pick ƒ with a wire coming out the top of it. If it senses 12 volts, it lights up.


24 ALLATSEA.NET APRIL 2014electrical problem. Lets say, however, it wasnt the negative side which was faulty, but the positive. You would have known this because„ when you “rst touched the test light from the negative side of the battery to the nubs of the light socket„neither of the nubs would have lit up the bulb„telling you that either both wires werent connected to the battery (unlikely but possible) or it was the positive side which wasnt making contact. To con“rm, youd take your long extension wire and now (being careful again) attach it to the positive (+) terminal on the battery„and use your bulb tester again. When it lights up (the circuit is complete) thats the negative side of the socket. You can con“rm this by testing continuity on the neg side. It should have it. On the positive side, it should not. Trace the positive (usually red) back to the battery. This is trickier as it will go through a switch and circuit breaker or fuse box„in addition to a terminal or two. Is there more to it? Sure! A bulb has no polarity and can be wired up with either one of the other terminal wires leading to either battery terminal„it doesnt matter. (Incandescent light bulbs are just small toasters; but optimized for light, not heat.) However, a radio, a motor, or some LED lights have polarity„meaning that the electricity must ”ow in a certain direction. Thus, the red wire must eventually go to the positive battery terminal and the black one to the negative. Occasionally, a wire will make enough contact to allow a little bit of juice through it„but not the high load demanded. This is common with windlasses, etc. This can be spotted with the volt ohm meter by measuring the wires resistance to current ”ow„but thats another article. But for the most part, all you need is a 12 volt bulb tester and Volt Ohm meter (both under $25) to get 99% percent of your stuff working together. If you need to trace which particular wire is where at your switches, just shut off your main battery switch so there is no 12 volts in the circuit„and then put your continuity meter on one end of the wire (say, at the running lights, for instance)„and touch the other end of it to the individual wires at the terminal block leading to the switches. Bingo! The beeping one is it! Remember„unplug your 110/220 volt before you begin if youre not sure which wire is AC (shorepower) and DC (12 volt). Good luck!

His latest, Buy, Out“t, and Sail is out now. Visit: Sailing Humor Put the alligator clip attached to the wire onto the negative post of your battery, and touch the positive post with the pointy part. The bulb will light. Excellent! Now set your volt/ohm meter for voltage, 12 volts, and put the black wire on the negative terminal of your battery and the red one on the positive„and it should read 12+ volts. Great. Now you have determined that your 12 volt test bulb is working, that your voltage meter is working, and that your battery has juice in it at a pressure of (usually) around between 12.5 and 12.7 volts. (Unless the battery is running something, then it will be lower„or higher if solar cells, etc, are hooked up. Now take a long (preferably fused) test wire and test it for continuity„so you are absolutely sure this wire conducts electricity. Next, attach this test wire to the negative side of the battery and carefully (so it doesnt touch anything metal and make a short circuit which will blow the fuse and/ or make a spark) bring the other end to your bulb socket. Place the alligator clip of the circuit tester (the ice pick one with the tiny bulb) on the end of this wire, and then touch the ice pick end of the tester to the metal contacts in the light socket. If the switch is on, it should light. If one of the terminals makes the test light turn on„your positive side is okay, and lacks a ground to your negative terminal. Mark the nub which lights up as +positive. We know this because it completes the circuit with the negative. Con“rm this by switching your volt ohm meter (set to continuity/beeping)ƒ and touching your extension wire to the light socket nub which DID NOT light up, i.e., the negative side of the socket. It should not beep. This con“rms you have no current ”ow through negative, and the positive side is “ne. Wow! You are almost done. Replace the bulb, and (if possible; sometimes easy, sometimes not) touch your negative ground wire to the black wire negative ground going into the negative nub on the socket„and the light should light. GREAT. You have now FIXED the problem„sloppy and temporarily, true„but the light didnt work and now it does ƒ you are a freakn electrical genius Pat yourself on the back. (Not time for drinks yet.) Now physically follow the wire (usually black for negative) back to the negative post of the battery. Chances are you will “nd an area of greenish discoloration along the wire (water has leaked into it and corroded the wire) or discover it is loose by a terminal box, etc. Repair or replace using the same components (if its big wire, use the same size, etc). Keep testing it as you go towards the battery„and at some point you will discover it is live with electricity. Narrow it down to exactly where there is 12 volts and no 12 volts, and theres your problem. You have now trouble-shot and “xed your “rst major

Hes 5ft 10in and 220lb but she doesnt know these statistics; still shes insisting that he must lose 40lb. Its a conundrum. Should he risk losing his place on the team or perhaps losing his lady? Charlies always full of ideas so when he heard of his friends plight he took him aside and made the following suggestion: Get 10lb of lead shot, put it in a sock and duct tape it to the inside of your thighs. Put your Boxers on and weigh yourself on your bathroom scale, making sure that Lucy (the rather skinny lady friend) is there to see. Shell be suitably disgusted at your obesity. Then think of all the food that you dont really like and in a heroic effort of anticipated painful discipline suggest that you cut those items from your diet.Ž Yes, yes, I get it,Ž Bruce was pretty sharp when it came to scamming. I dont really like pasta with white sauce.

28 ALLATSEA.NET APRIL 2014 Fishing Careful preparation, life-saving camaraderie plus a little luck led the Trinidadian team aboard the 54ft Bertram, Abracadabra to win the Top Boat prize in the 45th Budget Marine Spice Island Bill“sh Tournament (BMSIBT), held January 27 to 31 out of the Grenada Yacht Club (GYC). All crews that go to Grenada are always very prepared and perfectly capable of taking home the grand prize,Ž explains Capt. Gordon Dalgliesh, who won this tournament on Abracadabra in 2012. So, at the start of the tournament it was basically anybodys game.Ž Fifty-one boats carrying 261 anglers from the Caribbean, U.S. and Europe created an impressive parade as they cruised through St. Georges Carenage for the tournaments Bimini start. Abracadabra then throttled up and headed 20 to 25 miles east to an area known locally as the hump where the ocean ”oor drops to a depth of around 5,000ft. The team set out their spread and started to “sh. It wasnt until 11.00am that they successfully tagged and released a blue marlin and landed themselves on the scoreboard. An hour or two later Abracadabra tagged and released a second blue followed by a sail“sh in the last ten minutes of “shing for the day. This catch of two blues and a sail“sh put Abracadabra in the lead, albeit with Ramajay from Trinidad & Tobago and Reel Extreme from St. Lucia in close pursuit. Day two and the Abracadabra team left the dock full of anxious excitement because of the closeness in the scores. They headed to the same productive grounds and released a sail“sh by mid-morning.

Abracadabra along with Vesper and Reel Extreme immediately stopped “shing and escorted Gud Tyme in a dramatic run through Prickly Bay to Spice Island Marine, where tournament organizers had arranged a haul for repairs. Abracadabra ran back out to the “shing grounds where the team released a sail“sh and white marlin which put them comfortably in the lead … or so they thought. Abracadabra immediately got to work on the third and “nal day of “shing by releasing a sail“sh. However, Gud Tyme was not only back in the game after using the lay-day for repairs, but on a roll releasing a blue marlin, then a doubleheader sail“sh and a white marlin. This catching streak ultimately tied Gud Tyme on points with Abracadabra In the intervening time,Ž Dalgliesh tells, we caught nothing. Not even any bites. It made us really nervous. Then at 12:30pm we “nally hooked about a 450lb blue marlin. We fought it and fought it and lost it after two hours. Luckily, Gud Tyme had not caught anything in this time. The afternoon basically turned into a radio waiting game to “nd out who would hook the next “sh and who would be the one to win. Thank goodness it was us!Ž Gud Tyme which won the BMSIBT in 2011, didnt go home empty handed. In addition to the runner-up Top Boat prize, angler Michael De Freitas earned Top Angler with the release of six bill“sh. Three of these De Freitas caught on the last day and they gave him his personal “rst-ever Grand Slam (release of blue marlin, white marlin and sail“sh all on the same day) and won the team the Grand Slam Trophy plus a dinghy and motor from sponsor, Budget Marine. De Freitas describes his success as preparation meeting opportunity. He adds, I enjoy the Grenada “shery because of the abundance of species and “sh. This makes the tournament very exciting and competitive. The camaraderie on the jetty at GYC is great and the vibe is cool yet relaxed.

30 ALLATSEA.NET APRIL 2014 Diving Jamaicas new hyperbaric treatment facility at the Discovery Bay Marine Lab (DBML) has been in operation since March 2013. Though chambers typically last a long time, the old one had been in use since 1976, so the new chamber is a welcome replacement. While the old chamber was a one person chamber, the new one can hold up to eight people. According Peter Gayle, the hyperbaric safety director at the DBML, the new treatment facility was installed over a period of two years, while the old one was still in place. In total, 360 people used the old chamber over a period of more than 30 years. The Discovery Bay Marine Lab is one of two marine labs registered in Jamaica, and both labs are run by the University of the West Indies Department of Life Sciences.

Symptoms include a loss of vision, speech, hearing, unconsciousness, and the inability to control one side of the body. It is possible for a diver to experience both decompression sickness and pulmonary barotrauma at the same time. In some cases, decompression illness can be fatal. Sometimes, when divers realize they are sick, they try to explain away their symptoms instead of immediately seeking treatment. According to Gayle, the delay and the oxygen shortage makes the problem worse.Ž The hyperbaric chamber is the only thing that can “x the problem. The chamber gives the patient oxygen to breathe, and the pressure helps to shrink the bubbles in the bloodstream. The diving population in Jamaica includes commercial divers, commercial “shermen, and tourist divers. Commercial divers dont often require the use of a hyperbaric chamber. These divers are very well trained to be able to clean and inspect ship hulls, or perform underwater welding. Accidents are less likely. The divers that typically need the hyperbaric chamber are commercial “shermen and tourists. Commercial “shermen dive for lobster and conch with little or no training, and must dive down for long periods of time to catch enough to make a pro“t. Gayle says that the amount of people who come to the chamber varies. Sometimes [we get] three or four people in a week, and then sometimes none for months.Ž Since March 2013, about fourteen divers have used the hyperbaric chamber … most of them “shermen. There are currently no guidelines for what “shermen can and cannot do, so there is no training or management which can lead to the prevention of diving accidents. Gayle says that work is being done to set up a maritime authority to help train the “shermen. It is possible that more people will come to use the chamber once they realize that one exists in Jamaica. Countries like Venezuela, for example, have a vibrant medical tourism industry, and people can go to use the chamber. Gayle believes that Jamaica could eventually get some of that market. Turks and Caicos, Bermuda, Barbados, and the Cayman Islands also have hyperbaric chambers, so divers who might not have access to treatment facilities could ”y at sea level to one of the islands with a chamber.

32 ALLATSEA.NET APRIL 2014 Racing Circuit Hosted by the Admirals Inn, Nelsons Dockyard, Antigua, the Superyacht Challenge Antigua is the epitome of superyacht racing and partying, where the sole aim is to create an event for the pleasure of the participants without the constraints of commercialism. Louay Habib was the only reporter allowed at the event and gives an eye-witness account of the worlds most exclusive Superyacht Regatta. Paul Deeth and Stan Pearson have been involved with sailing superyachts in Antigua for decades and have created the perfect event. The fourth edition of the Superyacht Challenge Antigua was a spectacular and very private success. I have long-admired the magni“cent 182ft Dykstra designed schooner, Adela having watched her from afar but I “nally got the chance to sail on this wondrous yacht and with the 29 strong crew driving it at full pelt, it was an unbelievable experience. Getting Adela off the dock and 2000 square metres of sail aloft is a hefty task even with an army but when the mainsail halyard fails to lock into place, you realise it is a very dangerous environment to work in. First mate Will Miner went up the rig, climbing the towering main mast is an ordeal when Adela is stationary but pitching and rolling in three-meter seas, the top of the rig is whipping through the air and with just the luff to hang onto its a perilous venture. Lose your grip and the best outcome is serious injury. Will held on and “xed the issue but he took a big intake of breath and a slug of coca cola when his feet “nally made the deck. Adela came onto the breeze and accelerated into action. You might think that sailing a heavy schooner is a glide but not this monster. Adela lights up, fully putting the scuppers in the water. The boat is easily capable of ten knots upwind and it is a very wet ride as my phone can testify. After an exhilarating beat, Big Red was hauled onto the foredeck by ANTIGUA SUPERYACHT CHALLENGE SUPERYACHT SENSATION!

34 ALLATSEA.NET APRIL 2014 Racing Circuit a gang of muscular crew and the enormous spinnaker was deployed with a text book hoist. Hitting 17 knots of boat speed was an alarming thrill that just lights up your life. I was washed with emotion and this was only the practice day! The Superyacht Challenge Antigua has a spectacular social programme and settings dont come much better than the Welcome Cocktail Party at The Gunpowder House, Antiguas new elite address with an in“nity pool overlooking English Harbour. Racing kicked off on the “rst day with a pursuit start and a 22-mile course along the southern coast. It was like visiting the land of the giants, only eight yachts but over 1000ft in total length. The course included a windward/leeward section along the edge of Cades Reef, which compressed the ”eet in dramatic fashion. The 182ft ketch Marie and the Swan 90 Freya were virtually neck and neck the whole way around the course but the beautiful giant lost out to the elegant little Swan by just four seconds. The 102ft ketch, Maramar won the “rst race, which was to prove decisive. The “rst day had been intense and the competition continued into the evening. Take eight superyacht chefs and challenge them to make the best fare they can come up with and you have a feast “t for a coronation. Adela won the cook off but I must admit to having two helpings of SY Maries succulent rib of beef and pulled pork, which was out of this world! Day Two had two races planned and I jumped at the chance of sailing on the 126ft schooner, Gloria owned and sailed by one of the Whos Who of guitar legends. What a blast! Twenty knots of wind and a hell of a lot of characters on board. There was some devastating repartee, especially from the foredeck crew. Most of the jokes are unrepeatable but safe to say the laughter turned to sheer joy as Gloria corrected out to win the last race of the day. The “nal day of racing had three yachts vying for the overall win: Maramar ; Adela and Unfurled as the breeze dropped slightly to produce tricky, shifty conditions. The powerful 120ft German Frers sloop, Unfurled nailed the pin end of the start in hot pursuit of the ”eet that had gone before them in the staggered start. The “nal race of the Superyacht Challenge Antigua was to produce the closest ever “nish in superyacht racing history. One by one, Unfurled caught and passed the ”eet, grabbing the lead on the penultimate leg. Adela wasnt far behind and launched their huge spinnaker to try to close the gap on the last leg. Unfurled took the gun but Adela took the win by two seconds on corrected time, which meant the ketch Maramar retained the overall lead and won the regatta by a single point. At the prize giving, Maramar was roundly applauded as the winner but there was no cup, no speeches, just a barrel of rum that I am sure was bone-dry by the end of the evening. The Superyacht Challenge Antigua in one word? Amazing. Louay Habib is a freelance yachting journalist.

Sailors from the Caribbean and around the world enjoyed racing in a variety of conditions. Grenada Sailing Week is a blend of glorious Caribbean weather, race courses designed to show off the spectacular vistas of Grenada and great parties after sailing. This year the regatta committees mantra was Spice it Up! Diverse courses provided some high-octane racing action and every night was party night at some of Grenadas best loved venues. Grenada Sailing Week was hosted by Port Louis Marina, Le Phare Bleu Marina and Prickly Bay Marina. On the water, 14 race courses, ranging from tight windward-leeward to stunning coastal navigations, tested the teams. The Fun Class is designed for entries that dont ”y spinnakers, that need fewer crew and have a more relaxed approach to racing. Christian Nelias Baltic 42, Tropical was the victor. With a clean sweep of eight straight wins the French team from St. Tropez had the best score of any boat SPICE IT UP!

Jaguar was racing in an exceptionally competitive CSA Cruising 1 division and had an epic battle with Bluewater Sailings Chao Lay skippered by Alex Johnstone, and Canadian entry, Scott Watsons Boxxer The winner was decided in the very last race, which Jaguar won to take the title. Boxxer and Chao Lay tied on points, but Chao Lays second in the last race gave the Grenadian team runner up in class. Grenada Sailing Week is a fabulous regatta,Ž commented Jaguars skipper Peter Morris. It is the “rst event of the season for us and from here we head north to take part in more. The team are all good sailors, but we dont have any professionals. We are good friends who love to sail and Grenada Sailing Week provides great racing and a fabulous atmosphere ashore. Winning the best performing yacht overall prize was a very special moment for all of us.Ž The Blue Peter was the clear winner in the Classics division. The British cutter-rigged sloop was dismasted in Antigua last year and it was great to see this beautiful classic back on the race course and to see that skipper Mathew Barker has her going so well. With most days blessed with good winds, The Blue Peter went like a witch upwind. Stuart Armstrongs vintage British ketch, Desiderata was second with Grenadian Danny Donelans Carriacou sloop, Savvy third. In true Grenadian style, Danny invited many crew onto Savvy to enjoy the regatta, including Peter and Scott who had travelled from the remote Scottish, Shetland Islands. We have had a fantastic time in Grenada,Ž smiled Peter, many thanks to Danny for his hospitality. Like Grenadians, we also come from an island and although our weather can be rough at times, we have the same spirit in The Shetlands and that has been delightful to experience here in Grenada.Ž Hot Stuff indeed … Girls for Sail

Island Water World Grenada Sailing Week is dedicated to great racing but the event is also about having fun ashore. Port Louis Marinas opening party was sensational; Le Phare Bleu Marina Pirate Party was a roaring success. The prize giving ceremony at Prickly Bay Marina was attended by the Hon. Alexandra Otway-Noel, Minister for tourism, civil aviation & culture who said: Sailing is a very important part of the culture of Grenada and we welcome visiting sailors with open arms.Ž After the ceremony a mass steel band, positioned all around the dance area, “lled the dance ”oor with revelers, but there was even more to come. A breath-taking “re dance troop was followed by the full complement of the Tivoli Drummers. Sailors joined in with the group and limbo dancing and a conga really got the party going. The skies above Prickly Bay lit up with a spectacular “rework display and then Barracuda and his band turned up the volume with rock and roll and despite “ve days of intensive racing, the party went on until the small hours.

40 ALLATSEA.NET APRIL 2014 Technology Todays onboard electronics can be a dizzying mix of useful and sophisticated technology with capabilities that boggle the mind. At the heart of any good system there should be a quality chart plotter that allows the navigator quick and easy access to charts, waypoints, routes and overall situational awareness. Fortunately, there are plenty of chart plotters available and selecting the right one for you is a matter of determining which features best “t your needs. There are several factors to be taken into account when selecting a chart plotter including the size of the display along with how and where it will be mounted. Do you require multiple displays that interface with one another, or a stand-alone unit? In which area will you be boating and what CHART PLOTTERSSTORY AND PHOTOGRAPHY BY GLENN HAYES charts do you require? What type of screen would you prefer and do you want other features on your chart plotter such as radar, sounder, video input or even engine data? One mans bells and whistles can be another mans necessity.Size Does MatterIt is generally recommended that chart plotter consumers should select the largest screen size that helm real estate and the wallet will permit. If you take an average sized NOAA paper chart, reduce it and segment it to “t into a small screen size, you will quickly realize that bigger is better. The larger the screen the less zooming and panning will be necessary. And for those of us needing glasses, bigger screens are simply easier to see. Chart plotters are com-


APRIL 2014 ALLATSEA.NET 41 monly available with screens as small as four inches to as large as the largest widescreen TV. The common and popular sizes for most craft are in the 4, 5, 9, 10, 12, 15 and 19 inch sizes, measured diagonally across the screen. Prices jump incrementally with every inch so a balance between size and cost is advised. Screens used in most marine chart plotters are high-grade displays, with high pixel counts and bright backlights, that allow easy viewing in bright sunlight and when wearing polarized sunglasses. Another factor to determine screen size is to remember that most chart plotters are now multi-function displays … meaning they will display a lot more than just charts and include things like depth, radar, weather or other information. This may result in using split screens to show different data. What you want displayed on your plotter along with your charts will also help narrow down your choices. Some plotters are stand-alone, others may have a sounder built in (usually for not much more money than stand-alone units). They may also have the capability of plugging in radar, video and black box modules. Manufacturers such as Lowrances HDS Gen2 Touch series have chart plotters that have sophisticated sounders built in, with down and side sonar imaging along with radar plug-in capability, as does Garmin in its new line of 10, 8 and 7 inch GPSMap XS series chart plotters. Larger units such as Simrads NSS or NSE series displays; Raymarines E series, or Furunos Navnet TZ units, are available in screen sizes 12 inch or larger, give more sophisticated networking capability, with multiple display possibilities, repeating charts and information between them. Many of these larger plotters add features such as sounders by adding black box modules that tie into the network, increasing capability and cost. Most manufacturers now offer some kind of wireless networking to a tablet or smartphone with their mid and high-end plotters. Some newer manufacturers applications will turn your tablet or phone into a full functioning remote rather than just a repeating monitor. This can be useful for trip planning while in your cabin or sitting comfortably in the salon or cockpit enjoying a sundowner. An example would be Simrads GoFree wireless system composed of a wireless transmitter that is connected to one of its chart plotters and a GoFree app that is downloaded from the Android Market or iTunes. The tablet can then, theoretically, act as a remote second station. Many chart plotters are now being offered with touch screens along with software that replicates the tablets we are so familiar with. Not all touch screen units are the same, however, and it is recommended to get your hands on one (pun intended) and try it for yourself. With some plotters you may “nd icons are small and hard to hit in a rocking boat. Operating systems vary in logic and use, and features such as pinch to zoom may be available only on some models and not others. De“nitely try before you buy to “nd the system that is the most ”uid for you. Touch screens are proving to be pretty robust and are a quick and easy way to get around pages and functions on chart plotters. Doing away with many buttons, some of the new chart plotters with touch screens are now going with an all-glass look, lacking bezels, and can What you want displayed on your plotter along with your charts will also help narrow down your choices. Some plotters are stand-alone, others may have a sounder built in.

Probably one of the most important and most often overlooked features of a chart plotter is the cartography it is able to use. Some manufacturers use proprietary cartography based on their own surveys along with raster and vector charts from various sources. Garmin is one such manufacturer and offers Blue Chart g2 Vision cartography that allows for auto-routing capability (set up the plotter with your draft and overhead clearance and just move the curser on the chart to where you want to go and it creates a safe route for you automatically), along with many other features. Manufacturers such as the Navico group utilize Navionics software. Some of their units are even able to record sounder information and manual entries to a storage card and then upload it to the Navionics website, creating detailed custom bathometric charts with user data “lling in and adding detail. Other manufacturers such as Furuno, Standard Horizon and Hummingbird can utilize Jeppesen C-map cartography. Jeppesen is now offering C-Map 4D cartography. This cartography includes raster and vector chart capabilities with 3D charting, easy routing (Jeppesens routing capability is possible when boat parameters are entered), and satellite imagery. You can even add on by purchasing separately highly detailed bathometric and “shing charts. Before investing in a chart plotter, it is a good idea to research the cartography that is preloaded or the charts that can be purchased and added. Certain charts may be better for your proposed boating area than other manufacturers charts. This is especially true if boating internationally. Do your homework so you wont be disappointed. As time passes chart plotters are getting faster, more powerful with larger memories, processors and instruction manuals (or PDF “les). By doing your homework and deciding what you want from your chart plotter and how it should perform, you will get the right one to help you navigate with con“dence.

There are several great opportunities to charter. These include everything from renting an entire boat to signing on for a crew slot. Steven Landy, who crewed with fellow members of the Norwalk, CT-based Sound Sailing Center (SSC) on the Hanse 40, Bermuda High in last years St. Thomas International Regatta, says, A regatta charter is a great way to explore racing if you havent done it before.Ž Regatta charters are gaining popularity each year, explains Brittany Weatherby, North American marketing manager for Clearwater, FL-headquartered Sunsail, the of“cial yacht charter sponsor of Antigua Sailing Week. We have BY CAROL M. BAREUTHER had a number of our sponsored regattas sell our ”eet out for their spring regattas. One of the greatest additions is the use of Sunsail as a cruising option for yacht clubs looking to give their members a winter cruising opportunity. Many of these groups will charter a number of Sunsail yachts to race in the larger Caribbean regattas.Ž Most important is for potential racers to match their skills and experience with the type of regatta charter that best “ts their needs, explains Peter Anthony, director of Ondeck Antigua. Some individuals are very experienced while others are complete novices. Therefore, they need to be sure that the yacht they join has the same orientation and can offer training at the novice level and the right challenges for the seasoned racer. They also need to look at how serious the racing will be on that yacht. Most yachts are serious You dont have to own a boat to take part in exciting regattasPHOTO: PAUL WYETH


APRIL 2014 ALLATSEA.NET 45 about the racing and the partying!Ž Ondeck Antigua offers a mix of racing yachts from company-owned Beneteau 40.7s, a Santa Cruz 37 and a Farr 65 to yachts they act as agent for such as a Beneteau First 50, a 77ft ocean racing yacht and a Grand Soleil 43. Small yachts, in general, are usually chartered in their entirety. Theres been resurgence in small boat racing as compared to the 60 to 80-footers,Ž says Paul Stoeken, owner/ operator of Island Sol in St. Thomas, which charters IC24s for the St. Thomas International Regatta. Weve had people from on-island charter one of our ICs and bring their buddies down to race. Weve also had teams from St. Maarten, Spain and Italy charter. Our boats are race ready.Ž The price to charter an entire yacht thats 40 to 60-plus-feet


46 ALLATSEA.NET APRIL 2014 Chartering in length ranges from US $12,000 to $25,000, says Ondecks Anthony. Regattas do vary in price due partly to duration but mainly supply and demand with Antigua Sailing Week and the St. Maarten Heineken Regatta being the most expensive. We include race entry and berthing within our pricing and onboard accommodation. One or two practice days and delivery of the yacht to the regatta is also included.Ž Prices range from US $1500 to $2400 for a crew spot on a yacht for a regatta, Anthony adds. For individuals, we include food and drink whilst racing and accommodations on board.Ž Performance Yacht Charters, based in the UK, offers both types of regatta charters. Their First 40, Southern Child and J/120, Sunset Child are chartered by the yacht and their Swan 51, Northern Child is chartered by the crew slot. The individuals who charter individually as crew are usually a lot less experienced,Ž explains Christian Reynolds, who owns PYC with wife Lucy. Both hold RYA Yachtmaster Ocean licenses and serve as the professional crew on board Northern Child with ten to 12 slots available for crew. Based on a persons size and experience, well put them in a sensible place or where theyd like to be and train them in that position. We teach a proper racing experience and frequently have podium “nishes.Ž Group charters where fees range from US $600 to $800 per person is what Martin Van Breems offers aboard his SSCs Bermuda High I skipper at the starts and then hand the helm over. Everyone (who wants to) takes turns driving. We spend lots of time rotating through positions to help everyone learn and grow.Ž Those whod like the experience of racing aboard a multi-hull can sign up for a crew slot aboard Fast Cat Cruisings Outremer 55, Teora No experience is required,Ž invites Maas Hanen, who is based in St. Maarten and owns the yacht with partner Cristina Figueira. A big advantage of a race charter, by the yacht or by the slot, is the ease of logistics. Sunsails Weatherby explains, Participation in a regatta is structured the same ways as our charters. The charterers pick their boat up at the Sunsail base, go give it their all in the regatta and then drop the yacht back at the base upon their departure.Ž Finally, theres more to a regatta charter than just the racing. Landy, who crewed on the SSCs Bermuda High tells, At the end of each day we all went swimming right off the boat in the cove we moored in, rum and coke in hand. We also attended great parties each evening sponsored by the regatta and met lots of new people from the other boats. It was a lot of fun.Ž Carol M.

48 ALLATSEA.NET APRIL 2014 Cruising Approaching Panama, the winds tend to die and the sea becomes still, even glassy. This is what we experienced 60 miles off the Panamanian coast after three days close hauled from Jamaica. The winds had been south of east the whole way, turning this supposed easy wind on the beam sail into a close reach with the winds just off the port bow. Even so, the crisp 20-25 knot winds kept us going at a steady eight knots and allowed us to make the 570 nautical mile transit in three days. The coast was hidden in haze and the “rst things we saw were the huge silhouettes of ships from all over the world. Tankers littered the horizon and provided some fun as we maneuvered to avoid them as they held their course without a care in the world. When approaching the breakwaters of Colon, it is essential to not only follow the rules of the road and keep to starboard, but preempt the entry or exit of one of the many ships trying to make their way in and out of the harbor. PANAMA BY CAPTAIN MAX LOUBSER ATLANTIC PACIFIC Panama City from the Amador Causeway overlooking the north anchorage Corina IV in Shelter Bay Marina


APRIL 2014 ALLATSEA.NET 49 The anchorage for yachts at Colon is known as The Flats and is marked by yellow buoys located just south of the large Cristobal Container Terminal. If you do not want to sit at anchor or need to get anything done without too much hassle, Shelter Bay Marina is your only option. In the past there were a few other docks available including the Panama Yacht Club, all have now been disbanded. Shelter Bay has everything a cruiser needs and at competitive rates. The pool and one dollar beers were a treat after being at sea! We decided to hold up here for a few days and sort out the canal paper work and get a few things done including picking up the last two members of our crew. After securing to the very nice ”oating dock in Shelter Bay we were given the contact details of Erick Galvez, recommended as a trusted canal agent. Galvez was de“nitely on the ball. We met the next day, submitted our paperwork, and within two days had a spot in the canal.

50 ALLATSEA.NET APRIL 2014 Cruising immigration is done on site by an of“cer who comes to the marina in the morning and works from a small of“ce behind the marina complex. All other documentation including cruising permit, zarpe, and possibly visas will be done through the agent. All of this is of course possible without an agent but if you are one who cant stand the hassle or, like us, are tight for time, then I recommend you spend the $350 in agent fees. As for Colon, this interesting hub of Central American commerce is a great experience but in small doses. Personally I would not want to spend days hunting down the of“cial documents and signatures needed to obtain canal clearance. That said, the city offers almost everything one could want. You just have to “nd it! It is best to “ll your propane tanks here as well. If you are in Panama City, you have to hire a taxi driver to take them and “ll them for you. We made this mistake but luckily there were many other cruisers with the same problem, so together it was more than feasible. If you are preparing for a long voyage, Panama is de“nitely the place to stock up. A wide range of foods can be found in Colon or Panama City. Alcohol is very cheap and, even with the tax, gives St. Maarten a run for its money. Diesel is best bought in Panama City. We paid $3.66 a gallon from a fuel dock, so no need to carry jerry cans to a fuel station. All this was accomplished at the Balboa Yacht Club in Panama City. Directly before the “rst lock, on the Paci“c side, lies Balboa. This is the only secure place for cruisers to leave their boats long or short term. They have moorings and a tender service to shore. These are paid by the day per foot. Apart from that there are two other anchorages available on either side of the Amador causeway. One is in the south cove, however, the swell and tides make it uncomfortable at times and one has to pay to use the dinghy dock. The other, more protected anchorage, lies on the north side past the fancy Flamenco Marina but this can be very hot and the dinghy dock is very sketchy. We tried both anchorages for a week and then decided to tie up at Balboa for peace of mind and to be closer to the city. In terms of yacht repairs and spare parts, I was amazed at how little was on offer. We needed a new Volvo dripless shaft seal and after two weeks of hunting around, including visits to the Panama Volvo dealer, we had one sent from St. Maarten, which arrived in two days. There are many hardware and automotive stores where you can buy tools and general supplies but anything boat speci“c is a problem. Ordering parts from the US (or St. Maarten, we use Budget Marine) and having them couriered is the best option for price and time. Do not expect local expertise unless you own a sport “shing boat. EDITORS NOTE In June 2013, Max Loubser, Laura Bijnsdorp, Kippy Gilders, Alex Nebe and Maria Merkens, young friends who grew up together on St. Maarten, boarded Corina IV a Beneteau Oceanis 52 loaned to them by former St. Maarten businessman Allard Stamm, and set off to sail around the world.

52 ALLATSEA.NET APRIL 2014 Our Natural World Lion“sh are selling like hotcakes in the “sh market in Portsmouth, Dominica. The local divers have been killing this non-native and invasive species (AAS January 2009) and locals have taken up the cause by eating the delicious “sh. I know that in some areas eating reef “sh can put you at risk for contracting ciguatera. I also have heard that other areas are very low risk for ciguatera. Curiosity got the better of me and I “shed around to “nd out some facts about ciguatera “sh poisoning. Ciguatera is a toxin that occurs in tiny marine organisms called dino”agellates ( Gambierdiscus toxicus ). The dino”agellates attach to marine algae, which is eaten by reef “sh. Ciguatoxin is fat soluble and herbivorous “sh consume this microalgae and the ciguatoxins are stored in the fat of “sh and are bioaccumulated; the little “sh eat the algae and get a dose of the ciguatoxin, then a larger “sh eat many of the little “sh and then a barracuda comes along and ingests the medium “sh and the toxin is accumulated and passed through the food CIGUATERA IN REEF FISH STORY AND PHOTOS BY DEVI SHARPTO EAT OR NOT TO EAT? If so, All At Sea would like to hear from you. Please send details naming type of “sh eaten and where caught or bought, to: editor@allatsea.netEDITORS NOTE: Devi says she has eaten lion“sh in Grenada and “nds it delicious.HAVE YOU SUFFERED FROM CIGUATERA POISONING? To avoid ciguatera know what kind of fish you are buying and where it was caught Lionfish are now a common fish in Portsmouth, Dominica


APRIL 2014 ALLATSEA.NET 53chain. Ciguatera is also accumulated in our fat; so you might not get sick the “rst time you consume the toxin. A sub symptomatic load might go unnoticed and only come to your attention when you get another dose of ciguatera that triggers the symptoms. You do not become immune to ciguatoxins. The symptoms of ciguatera poisoning can vary from person to person. The most common symptoms include: nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, dizziness, headache, and numbness and tingling of limbs. More acute symptoms include a feeling that your teeth are loose and confusing hot and cold temperatures. Death due to heart or respiratory failure occurs in rare cases. Symptoms may persist for months or years, or reoccur periodically. There is no antidote for ciguatera poisoning. A trained doctor can make you more comfortable and reduce the symptoms. The symptoms are enough to scare anyone from eating “sh, but not to worry, not all “sh carry ciguatera. There are two things to consider: where the “sh was caught and where the “sh feeds. Fish that feed on reefs„or “sh that feed on those “sh„ are high risk. For example barracuda feed at the top of the food chain so it is best to avoid them. Other high-risk “sh include some species of grouper, snapper, parrot“sh, eels, king mackerel, big eyed jack, amberjack and probably lion“sh. The question of where is harder to address, but some areas in the Eastern Caribbean are hotspots for ciguatera and others seem to be immune. In a comprehensive review of ciguatera in the Eastern Caribbean (Ciguatera in the Eastern Caribbean by David A. Olsen, David W. Nellis, and Richard S. Wood, National Marine Fisheries Review 1:13) the authors write that there are three primary centers of ciguatera concentration. The “rst is around Redonda between Antigua and Montserrat. The second area is between the eastern edge of the Saba Bank and along the southern edge of the Anguilla Bank. The third hot spot of ciguatera is along the narrow shelf south of Norman and Peter Islands in the British Virgin Islands. There are fewer cases of ciguatera reported south of Martinique. Unfortunately, ciguatoxin is heat-stable, so cooking will not detoxify the “sh. There are many folk methods to detect the toxin in a “sh, but none have proven to be accurate. A test kit was developed in Hawaii, but is no longer available, so the best way to avoid ciguatera is to avoid eating reef “sh and “sh that are high order predators. Identify any “sh you catch on your boat, even at sea and be very cautious of unknown “sh in local markets. Mahi, tuna and other pelagic “sh should be free of ciguatera.

APRIL 2014 ALLATSEA.NET 59 Puerto Rico It only takes one hurricane in our vicinity to wreak havoc with our lives. Sustained winds at a hundred knots, mountainous seas, six inches of rain in an hour with an eightfoot storm-surge„combine these with ”ying debris and you have a terrifying scene. For those of us who play roulette with our yachts by keeping them in the hurricane zone during hurricane season (many of us do), this is a serious matter! Insurance aside, the main issue is to “nd a way to protect our yachts and “nd safety. If we actively sail our yacht during the Caribbean hurricane season, we run for the mangroves ahead of numbered and named storms to deal with the mania caused by our peers staking claim to contested mangrove habitat or, God-be-with-us, head to sea (as some have done) to navigate away from the path of a hurricane. Many times Ive faced fatigue, stress and sickness while keeping my boat in the water all year„been there, done that. I know one guy who got dengue fever while tied to a mangrove in Vieques, trying to ride out squalls on the fringe of a Category 1 storm. If we care about the safety of our boat-neighbors and our vessels, we face some responsibilities of profound impact to ourselves and our community. HURRICANE TIEDOWN STORAGE AT PUERTO DEL REY MARINA BY PAUL EXNER Several years ago I gave-up the freedom of having access to my boat during Hurricane Season and hauled-out at Puerto Del Rey Marina in Fajardo, Puerto Rico„lashing her to highground for peace of mind. This also gave me the opportunity to do other things like comb the Atlantic-side beaches of our Caribbean isles, which shoal-up when the prevailing summer winds veer south, and take advantage of great snorkeling spots inaccessible during the Caribbean winter. I even go off island with my wife to visit the real world again. Now I relish my new-found freedom to safely leave the boat at Puerto Del Rey and take a break from the stress of dodging hurricanes! Hurricane tie-down storage is the best option to protect our yachts and our sanity. However, there are very few marinas which offer tie-down facilities, and I doubt any would offer complete protection during a direct CAT 5 strike. The key components to look for in a highly-secure hurricane tie-down facility are: (1) boat yard regulations that encourage our storage neighbors to prep their yachts for extreme wind-speeds, (2) protection from hydraulic forces and erosion caused by storm surges that carry heavy surf ashore, Puerto Del Rey hurricane storage highlighted in yellow

Call to reserve your haul out! 787.860.1000 / Fajardo, Puerto Rico HURRICANES HAPPEN also withstanding gushing rivers that swirl through the boat yard as they purge ”ood water, and (3) tie-down structures of heavy construction that remain un-earthed during periods of total saturation of the ground with sea and rain water. Strap procedures for yachts in a tie-down facility are an important concern, too. Catamarans must use tie-down straps between the hulls, not just rely on straps extending outward, because these un-ballasted vessels become lift-generating aero-foils during a hurricane; they tend to break free, and may become airborne (see photo). This scenario is hard to imagine but really happens, and should certainly makes us think twice when talking about a good ole-fashioned hull-”ying contest. Puerto Del Rey Marina in Puerto Rico provides robust storage solutions for vessels seeking safety during hurricane season, and the recently expanded tie-down facility now offers more space for vessels seeking highly secure tie-down storage. PDRs hurricane-proof steel and cement structure is buried in the earth, and the storage location is protected from the sea by 100,000 square meters of US NAVY controlled mangrove. The marina is committed to protecting vessels from hurricanes, and provides a blockand-jack-stand support system within a highly ”exible network of strong tie-down points; they require adherence to prudent procedures which guard the community of boats against wind forces of exponential proportions. Its well worth investigating the bene“ts that a quality tie-down facility like Puerto Del Rey Marina has to offer before a hurricane blows in! Paul Exner is president of Modern Geographic.

APRIL 2014 ALLATSEA.NET 63A desire to grow up and achieve great things on the world stage and actually doing it isnt an impossible dream. This was the story told by three members of Americas Cup winning Oracle Team USA who spoke at the St. Thomas Yacht Club about their beginnings in the sport and their roles in the biggest come-from-behind victory in sporting history. Skipper Jimmy Spithill, a native of Australia, made a name for himself on the junior match racing circuit and was tapped for his “rst Americas Cup back in 1999 as a 19-yearold. Grinder Shannon Falcone, from Antigua, got his start as an eight-year-old hanging on the backstay of his fathers boat while sailing in events like the St. Thomas International Regatta, BVI Spring Regatta and Antigua Sailing Week. Designer Kirst Feddersen, born and raised in St. Thomas, sailed small dinghies during his public and private school years on the island, then embarked on a nautical design career after graduation from Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University in Florida. Collectively, with the 147 other members of Oracle Team USA, Spithill, Falcone and Feddersen made history by winning the 34th Americas Cup … the oldest international sporting trophy dating back to a Deed of Gift given in 1851 … in a way that made sports history. What was it that led Oracle Team USA, on the brink of defeat after losing eight to one to Emirates Team New Zealand, to come back and champion eight consecutive races to take home the trophy? It wasnt so much one thing as lots of little things,Ž explains Spithill. The boats were very technical. It was akin to driving a Formula 1 race car. It was good this wasnt a weekend race but spanned a couple of weeks so we could have that learning curve take place. In the end we just kept chipping away until we won. After all, its not about how you start but how you “nish.Ž Falcones advice to young people who want to follow in United States Virgin Islands these footsteps is this: Be willing to put your head down and work hard, be a team player, and be able to learn from your mistakes. Your reputation is everything in the sailing world.Ž Even those who arent actively sailing can be part of an Americas Cup team via other skill sets, says Feddersen. Theres a need, for example, for electrical engineers, boat builders and riggers.Ž Spithill, Falcone and Feddersen all agreed that the Caribbean was the ideal place to learn to sail given the yearround warm weather and constant tradewinds. Sales of tickets and raf”e prizes from the nights talk bene“ted the St. Thomas Yacht Club Youth 420 sailing program. Youth interested in learning to sail can take lessons at the St. Thomas Yacht Club. Prospective sailors must be at least “ve-years-old and know how to swim to participate. Stopping by the Club on a Saturday morning is a great way for young, interested sailors to see what goes on and talk about signing up for the spring session that starts in April,Ž invites Margo Lynch, the Clubs head of junior sailing. Currently, all learn to sail classes are scheduled for Saturdays.

64 ALLATSEA.NET APRIL 2014 British Virgin Islands Traveling to the Caribbean can be challenging, especially if you need to bring a 44ft boat with you to compete in a highly competitive regatta. But if you have the money and some of the best sailors from around the world, things become a little easier. For the “rst time since 2010, a leg of the RC44 Series was held in the Caribbean. During previous seasons, the closest it had come to the region was Key West, Florida. The Caribbean regatta was billed as the RC44 Virgin Gorda Cup hosted by Yacht Club Costa Smeralda in North Sound on February 12-16. The defending champion was Team Aqua, which pulled off a come-from-behind victory to win the Virgin Gorda Cup. We won last season, so we set ourselves a pretty high bar,Ž Team Aqua grinder Ben Graham said. Team Aqua was among the nine teams from around the RC44 RACING SERIES MAKES A STOP IN VIRGIN GORDAPHOTOS AND STORY BY TODD VANSICKLE


APRIL 2014 ALLATSEA.NET 65 world who competed in the four-day regatta. The concept of this ”eet is to move around,Ž said RC44 Class Manager Betrand Favre. On average, a team spends about $700,000 to compete in the “ve-race series, while a new RC44 boat with sails costs about the same. The series started with the Virgin Gorda Cup. Christian Kamp of Team Artemis sails more than 200 days a year. He considers himself lucky to compete for Torbjorn Tornqvist, the teams owner and driver. It is a huge commitment,Ž Kamp said. It is a lot of money and time out of his busy schedule. We are really fortunate to have an owner who is this keen and willing to spend money and go traveling on this great circuit.Ž Mr. Kamp “rst visited the BVI when he competed in the Melges 32 Sailing Series last February, which was also hosted by YCCS. The fleet of RC44s start a race in North Sound, Virgin Gorda. The four-day regatta featured fleet and matching racing and a 30-mile race


66 ALLATSEA.NET APRIL 2014 British Virgin Islands That is when we actually decided to have this class here,Ž Kamp said. He sat down with the organizers and lobbied to have the event in the BVI. It hasnt let us down,Ž Kamp said. However, there were some challenges. A few hundred yards away from YCCS, a barge with seven containers and a large crane was anchored and held in place by a tugboat. The containers were “lled with workbenches, sail racks, splicing devices and enough tools to make a small chandlery envious. Once you go from a 30ft boat to a 40ft boat you need that kind of set up,Ž Kamp said. They are race boats; they need a lot of maintenance. They are made out of carbon. A lot of stuff breaks, they are made as light as possible. Obviously, when we push the boats, they start breaking down. It is like a race car.Ž He estimates that the RC44s, designed by Russell Coutts, can reach speeds of about 25 knots. The boats design allows it to be shipped easily from venue to venue. The RC44 actually removes a lot of the challenges from shipping from the normal boat. They are quite narrow,Ž Graham said. The stern comes off and allows it to “t in an open 40ft container. They are relatively easy to ship.Ž However, there were some logistics with getting the boats to the BVI. Bringing the ”eet here was not easy,Ž Favre said. He said the draft at Port Purcell on Tortola is very limited, so “nding a container ship that was on its way to the territory with the proper draft was challenging. The boats started arriving in early January and were set up at Nanny Cay Marina, just a few miles away from Port Purcell. Three days after the regatta, the boats were disassembled and packed in containers to be shipped to the next venue „ Cascais, Portugal. The RC44 series has 12 to 13 teams, but the trip to the BVI was a little bit expensiveŽ so some teams opted not to compete in the Caribbean regatta, Favre said. Currently, the organizer is working on next years schedule, which will be “nalized in July. It is a great venue,Ž Favre said of the BVI. We will for sure come back at some point.Ž For results and information about the RC44 Circuit, visit: Todd VanSickle is a journalist who lives and works in the Virgin Islands.

Organizing a regatta is no easy task but as the Interlux Regatta proves, if you provide the right incentive and make regattas accessible to a wide variety of sailors, competition will be of the highest quality. The Interlux Regatta brought together different levels of skill and expertise, was fun, and produced some surprising results. With experienced racing sailors heading most of the 14 teams, the score sheet at the end of the two-day, 15 race regatta made interesting reading. Overall winner Han de Bruyn Kops went into the regatta con“dent he would win. We should have won the “rst race but were late at the start, but sailed quickly to third,Ž he said. Sundays “rst race we were “rst but made a wrong decision and

With a full wind, I assumed the young family would “nd the regatta challenging and perhaps even a little daunting especially when up against, and beating, more experienced sailors. Not so,Ž said Carlos, my wife and kids like it very much and it seems to me it would be more challenging to “nd babysitters, etc., if we were not doing it together. After the initial reaction from some of the rival competitors, they all know us and have shown great appreciation and treat the kids very nicely. This is very refreshing as it can get pretty competitive out there.Ž He adds, The kids love being part of it and getting recognition from the top sailors from the island.Ž Frits Bus Team Island Water World One “nished in sixth place overall. Bus is one of St. Maartens most successful sailors and races everything from superyachts to Lasers. A proponent of one-design racing, Bus says the Interlux is his favorite regatta. It was again challenging [the regatta] with very dif“cult wind shifts and a strong “eld of competitors. Team IWW One didnt do as well as usual, having won this regatta “ve times, but it was as exciting as ever, well organized and well run,Ž Bus said. Conditions on the Simpson Bay Lagoon test even the best sailors as Team Budget Marine/Gill con“rmed. Skipper Andrea Scarabelli and crew Chris Marshal and Ryan Hope Ross went into Sunday at the head of the leader board. Within sight of victory, it all went wrong and they had to settle for second place overall behind Han de Bruyn Kops and Team Han. When the racing is so close, any small mistake can cost you the meter that you need to put your bow in front of the opponent at the “nish line,Ž said Scarabelli. In our case we lost it at the last tack of the last race 50 meters from the “nish. We crossed on port just inches in front of Han but couldnt tack back immediately because we were too close to him. When we did, he was already free from our coverage so he managed to cross the “nish one meter in front of us. Winning the last race would have meant winning the regatta.Ž Andy Budgen of Team Volvo 70 Charter Black, “nished in third place.

St. Barthlemy In the third edition of the annual Saint Barth Fun Cup, windsur“ng champion Antoine Questel again used his home-court advantage to win the majority of the races and retain the winners mantle he donned last year. Taty Frans, from Bonaire, and Alexandre Cousin from France took second and third place, respectively, while the top women were Delphine Cousin, Malle Guilbaud and Hlne Puren. The 2014 Fun Cup, organized by Antoine Questel and his colleague Arnaud Daniel, attracted 80 competitors for three days of racing over the weekend of January 30. The Fun Cup is now considered one of the major nautical events on the island. We are very pleased with the results. It takes eight months to organize the Saint-Barth Fun Cup, starting in April,Ž says Daniel. Antoine was able to help a little earlier this year, but we really depend on the support of about 40 volunteers who invest in the success of the event.Ž Changing hats from co-organizer to top competitor, Questel was one of the favorites this year. Although not successful on the “rst day, he won “ve of the six races on Saturday and Sunday, for a total of six wins out of eight races, beating Frans and Cousin, as well as Pierre Mortefon and world champion Bjrn Dunkerbeck, who has 41 titles under his belt. Its a great way to start the season,Ž said Questel, the double French slalom champion, who was born in Saint Barth. Race director Anthony Rigaut devised a 15-miles itinerary from Pointe Milou to the Bay of St. Jean by way of the islet of Fregate, Lorient and Bonhomme, with three buoys to round. On the “rst day large waves made racing quite dif“cult. Despite the conditions, Questel “nished the day with a hairs-breadth lead over Mortefon. But the next day, with better conditions and winds of 14 to 18 knots, Questel secured the lead and Dunkerbeck, who took a spill, did not “nish among the winners. On Sunday the winds died and the last race was cancelled, leaving competitors planning their attack for the Fun Cup in 2015! ST.

APRIL 2014 ALLATSEA.NET 73 Antigua Few sailors have raced in and reached the podium in as many Caribbean regattas as Antiguas Bernie Evan-Wong. A dentist by profession and sailor by recreation, Evan-Wong shows no signs of slowing down. In fact, hes speeding up by trying to break his own personal record for the greatest number of Caribbean regattas raced in one season. Why? To me, racing is just pure excitement and thrills,Ž Evan-Wong explains. I live on adrenaline for the whole regatta; dont even feel hungry most of the time, and when you “nd other people that love the fun and excitement it just adds to the natural high! And as James Dobbs ( Lost Horizon ) always says its more fun when you win.Ž Evan-Wong started sailing in his native British Guiana, now Guyana, at the age of two. This early start came thanks to his father Leslie, a keen racer himself who represented the country at the Chicago Pan American Games in 1957 in Snipes. Snipe dinghies were built locally and raced regularly out of the Demarara Rowing and Sailing Club, where Evan-Wong and his father would go most evenings and PROFILE: ANTIGUA SAILOR BERNIE EVANWONG BY CAROL M. BAREUTHER weekends. This is the routine he followed until age six when the family moved to the UK. Evan-Wong also followed in his fathers footsteps and earned his dentistry degree, but it wasnt until he moved back to the Caribbean, speci“cally Trinidad, in 1976 that he began racing sailboats again. I started with a King“sh dinghy, followed by a Laser and then began crewing on keelboats,Ž Evan-Wong tells. The “rst boat I bought was a Spanish-built 31-footer. When I saw the Cal 40 Huey Too sail past at speed coming home from the Grenadines, I knew I had to have that boat, so I bought her in 1982 and still have her. Ive also owned a series of boats in parallel, including an Evelyn 32, Beneteau 8M, a Humphries 30 one-off, Melges 24, a 27ft catamaran, and Mumm 36. There are also the boats Ive chartered to race including a Beneteau 40.7, Carriacou sloop, Bavaria 46, RS Elites, Jeanneau Sunfast 20s and IC 24s.Ž Over the past three decades, Evan-Wong has achieved podium “nishes in regattas held in Tobago, Grenada, Petit St. Vincent, Bequia, Guadeloupe, Culebra and St Barths.

Most recently, hes been called to the stage twice to receive trophies in the RORC Caribbean 600 after sailing his Mumm 36 High Tension around the challenging 11 island, 600nm course. One really memorable moment happened in an RORC Caribbean 600. We were planing, down between Nevis and Saba, at around 14 to 15 knots at night when someone shouted Dolphins. Looking over the port side we could see the outline of dolphins swimming around the boat outlined by their phosphorescence and on looking up to the sky there was a moonbow. A truly magic moment!Ž Evan-Wongs passion for sailboat racing is so strong that he hopes to encourage greater involvement. That is, hed like to see a website or Facebook page where yacht owners or regatta organizers and crews could coordinate for keen sailors to come from other islands to race and the local yacht owners or organizers could help with accommodation. After all, its universal that yacht owners nearly always need extra crew to race and, because of time constraints, ”ying between islands is more practical. Hopefully,Ž says Evan-Wong, the end result would be more participation of yachts and crew, a reciprocal arrangement, and better relations between the islands and yachting community.Ž Carol M.

APRIL 2014 ALLATSEA.NET 77 Antigua Twenty-four entries in this popular regatta made for exciting racing in perfect conditions off Jolly Harbour and Five Islands Harbour. As the name suggests, the regatta was sailed over the Valentines Day Weekend February 14-16. Included in the ”eet was Scarlet Oyster a highly successful 48-footer raced by Englishman, Ross Applebey. Scarlet Oyster was to have a dramatic end to the regatta. The ”eet was split into three classes for Saturday and Sundays racing: Cruising, Racing-Cruising and Racing. Scarlet Oyster the light wave Oyster, scored bullets in all four of Saturdays racing class races, as did the Swedish Yachts 42 Ocean Harmony in Cruising class. However, it was a different story in the Racing-Cruising class where Blue Peter a modi“ed J30 and Frolic an ex USA Coastguard Yawl, battled for honors. The result at the end of Saturdays racing was two wins and two seconds for Frolic and two wins and two seconds for Blue Peter These boats ANTIGUAS VALENTINES REGATTA

Sunday saw slightly lighter winds but with some heavy squalls gusting through Five Islands Harbour. This created some interesting sights with the smaller boats heeling further and further as the squalls roared through. Ocean Harmony had little success in the lower winds in the Sunday races but did suf“ciently well to guarantee the overall regatta honours in her class. The battle continued between Blue Peter and Frolic in the Racing-Cruising Class, the latter placing second twice and third once and Blue Peter gaining regatta honors with a third, a “rst and a second. In the Racing Class, Scarlet Oyster continued to dominate while the J105, No Face to Face sailed by Robbie Ferron and the J102, Sunset Child raced by Christian Reynolds, battled it out for the minor placings. Then came the drama! In the very last race a heavy squall saw Scarlet Oyster dismasted whilst ”ying her spinnaker. The bang, as the rigging snapped, was heard all over Five Islands Harbour. One crew member was swept into the sea by the boom but suffered only minor injuries to her hand. Fortunately, because the rules of the regatta allowed each boat to discard its worst result, it was some small comfort to Scarlet Oyster s crew that they still won the Racing Class. The regatta was followed by a lively prize-giving at the Westpoint Bar, Jolly Harbour. Report by Lawrence May.

The master cabin and bathroom were totally restored.

One crew cabin on the bridge was converted into a second galley, which makes the bridge area pretty much self-contained for two persons.
