8 ALLATSEA.NET MAY 2014 Editors Log Sailing in the Caribbean we have grown to expect fair weather, calm seas and gentle trade winds and that if we have a problem with the boat, help is close at hand. As the editor of All At Sea I love to promote the Caribbean as a vacation destination and I know that articles in the magazine have brought people to the islands in search of idyllic conditions at sea and ashore. Thanks to the web, All At Sea reaches people beyond the Caribbean, some of whom are turning dreams into reality and setting sail for the islands. Because we have such a wide readership, we touch on subjects beyond the Caribbean dream and this month is no exception. Safety is number one priority at sea. Finding someone lost at sea is extremely dif“cult if that person isnt equipped with an EPIRB. Having been in a situation that required activating an EPIRB, I feel I am quali“ed to comment. Since that day, when I pulled the tab and released the switch, I havent gone to sea without carrying something that will broadcast my position in an emergency. New developments in search and rescue techniques and equipment put my original EPIRB to shame, a bit like comparing a telegraph key to the iPhones of today. On page 40, Glenn Hayes explores the world of Search and Rescue and takes an in-depth look at the latest in manually deployed, automatic, personal and GPS assisted EPIRB technology and explains how spending a couple of hundred dollars on electronic wizardry could save your life. I had a wonderful time at our local regatta this year having cut down my work load by not broadcasting the event on behalf of a local radio station. Im lucky in that my local regatta, the St. Maarten Heineken Regatta, is also one of the largest in the Caribbean and attracts some of the worlds top sailors. With no microphone to drag around I was free to roam the race course with my camera and enjoy my time on the press boat, which is one of lifes great joys. From the press boat you are as close to the racing as it is possible get, sometimes too close, although I have heard it said that if irate sailors dont scream and cuss at the press boat, the media are not doing their job. The work that goes into organizing a large regatta never ceases to amaze me. They are complex in the extreme. Coordinating over two thousand sailors, in 20 different classes, while dealing with changing weather on an hourly basis is enough to test anyones metal. No wonder that after the event, organizers disappear for a few days to recuperate. My Gary E. Brown, Editor involvement this year included providing the commentary on the VIP boat during Saturdays racing and hosting the awards ceremony at the “nal party held on the beach in St. Maartens Simpson Bay. I shared my hosting duties with well-know yachting journalist and All At Sea contributor Louay Habib. Hosting the awards was the easy bit; all we had to do was entertain (we hope) and keep things moving while an army of assistants and volunteers handed out at least 70 prizes and awards. Commentating on the VIP boat is totally different, its fun but an open bar always throws up one wise guy. On the boat most people think that because you have the microphone you must be the captain. Heres my favorite exchange while covering the start of a race: Hey, captain, whys that boat going round in circles?Ž Im not the captain.Ž Whatever. Whys it going round in circles?Ž Its been penalized.Ž What for?Ž I dont know.Ž Im not surprised youre not the captain, you dont know anything.Ž I wasnt watching, I was checking to see if the people being seasick over the stern were okay.Ž How about a commentary on the puking, seeing as you dont know jack about sailing?Ž I do know about sailing!Ž Then why arent you the captain?Ž MICROPHONES DO NOT MAKETH THE MANSee you on the water!

16 ALLATSEA.NET MAY 2014 NewsCARIBBEAN NEWSA BRIEF LOOK INTO THE HAPPENINGS OF OUR WORLD Colombia Calls CruisersCartagena, Colombia has put out the welcome mat, ready to show the world their hospitality, beauty and plans for the future. All at Sea had a front row seat when ProExport Colombia presented the National Nautical Tourism Plan to select journalists. Enrique Stellabati, Tourism Vice President of ProExport Colombia, recognizes that cruisers are a key component to growing the marine market in Cartagena. We have the Panama Canal here, and cruisers coming from the west coast to the east coast have to stop somewhere. Were seizing that opportunity and saying, Heres Cartagena, Ž Stellabati said. Data collected in 2013 by the Vice-Ministry of Tourism showed that 60% of international transit boats arrived in Colombia from Panama while only 25% came from the ABC islands. Stellabati said it was time to change those percentages. We are actively promoting the fact that Colombia is outside the hurricane zone. We invite cruisers from the Caribbean to come here during that season and experience our hospitality.Ž The main obstacle international cruisers have experienced throughout Colombia is the lack of enough marinas. At Club de Pesca, in Cartagena, 200 slips are “lled with local members, leaving only 20 slips available for transients. Marina owners are anxious to see the Nautical Tourism Plan implemented, bringing growth to their facility and the city they love. Over the next several years marina capacity is set to increase with expansion of existing marinas in addition to the building of two additional facilities in downtown Cartagena. Cruisers are encouraged to anchor in the protected waters off Cartagena to enjoy the history, food and festivals of the region. … Report by Terry Boram, Editor, All At Sea SoutheastBVI sailor Sam Morrell quali“es for the Youth OlympicsWith a resounding third overall “nish in the 2014 Byte CII North American Championships Sam Morrell became the “rst British Virgin Island sailor to qualify for an Olympic yachting berth. Competing in Jensen Beach, Florida, Morrell easily secured one of the four spots available to sailors from the North American and Caribbean region. Morrell will join sailors representing the USA, Canada, the USVI and the Bahamas at the event.International Yachting Events at Port Louis Marina, GrenadaCamper & Nicholsons Port Louis Marina hosted many of the yachts taking part in the Oyster World Rally in March. This extraordinary odyssey started in Antigua in January 2013 and has seen two dozen of the finest yachts in the Oyster fleet cross the Pacific, Indian and Atlantic Oceans and visit countless countries and islands on their circumnavigation. Danny Donelan of Port Louis Camper & Nicholsons Marina explained that Oyster owners have established a strong bond with the marina and with the delights that Grenada has to offer. When we hosted the Oyster Caribbean Regatta last year it was clear that the owners and crew loved the island and were impressed with the facilities we provide for these special yachts. Its great to see their World Rally ”eet also choosing to make Grenada one of their stopovers, and I know they will enjoy their time here.Ž This is one of a growing number of high pro“le international events that are being drawn to Grenada and to Camper & Nicholsons Port Louis Marina. The World ARC will be stopping here on their global rally for the next three years, and the Royal Ocean Racing Club (RORC) recently announced that their new Transatlantic Race will “nish in Grenada this coming December.

Managing director, Anthony Bento comments on this major decision: Antigua Sailing Week continues to be the major event that drives year round awareness of Antigua and Barbuda as the premier yachting destination in the Caribbean. For English Harbour 5 Year Old Rum, that makes the decision for us to increase our support to Diamond level an important one, as working together with Antigua Sailing Week will not only assist Antigua in its tourism marketing efforts, but also work to grow our export market, a combination that we continue to see positive results on.Ž Commercial Director of Antigua Sailing Week, Alison SlyAdams said she was delighted that English Harbour Rum had increased its support of Antigua Sailing Week. Over the last few years we have worked together to develop the parties at Antigua Sailing Week and the vision of the management of Antigua Distillery Ltd., has continued to help shape our direction. We thank them for their huge support and look forward to making the Antigua Sailing Week 2014 parties the best yet.ŽVolvo Penta Name New Dealer in Dominican RepublicVolvo Penta appoints Inversiones Bastilla de Caribe IBC Shipyard (IBC) as a full-service dealer for its marine gas and diesel engines and drive systems in the Dominican Republic.

However, there is no doubt that his biggest legacy will be the Caribbean 1500 cruising rally, which “rst set sail in 1990, with a ”eet of 50 cruising boats to make landfall in Virgin Gorda, British Virgin Islands. The impetus for the rally started when Steve saw that cruising sailors outnumbered offshore racing sailors, but there were virtually no organized events for cruisers. Steve is the reason Im doing what Im doing today,Ž says Andy Schell, event manager for the ARC Caribbean 1500 and offshore delivery skipper. He put me on a 1500 boat back in 2006, which was my “rst offshore passage, and helped me make connections in the ocean sailing world. Steve was a huge inspiration. Its an honor to be managing the 25th Caribbean 1500 this year and carry his legacy into the future.Ž When Steve announced his decision to retire in 2010, he was determined that the 1500 would continue and develop into the future. It was his “rm belief that after 21-years of his leadership, combining the Caribbean 1500 with World Cruising Clubs world-wide portfolio of rallies would see it continue to inspire sailors for many years to come. Following several years of friendly rivalry it was with huge enthusiasm that I accepted Steves offer for World Cruising Club to take over the running of the renowned Caribbean 1500,Ž said Andrew Bishop, managing director of World Cruising Club today. I hope that with Steves passing we can see the rally he started return to its former glory in memory of his life and in recognition of all that he did to establish the event that helped so many take those “rst ambitious steps to go offshore cruising.Ž The 2014 rally will be the 25th edition of the Caribbean 1500, a “tting memorial to a man who encouraged so many cruisers to discover the delights offshore sailing.EIGHT BELLS Steve Black 1943 … 2014

20 ALLATSEA.NET MAY 2014BALDY SOUR! BY CAPN FATTY GOODLANDERSailing Humor Hair is a very useful thing for a sailor to have. It helps to keep your head warm during winter gales. It also helps to keep your brain cool in the tropics. While it is true that I have very little brain left after living through the 60s„all the more reason to preserve the few cells still lurking about. Yes, hair is useful. Many animals have it. And it ably serves an Able Seaman as a constant warning device to his fragile, egg-shell skull„screaming warning during, say, an unexpected jibe„just nano-seconds before youre dead. Yeah, useful. Strange women used to “nd it convenient to grab me by it„and smooch me up. No longer. Ive shaved my head„ which is a bit like yelling I quit!Ž while getting “red. Actually, God removed my hair„and I pray He had His reasons. ƒ woe is the poor seaman who is follically challenged! What have I ever done to deserve such a fate ƒ other than bilking that starving widow out of her lifesavings; the impulse-shoving of that wobbly drunk, and all those cuckolded husbands ƒ Actually, I dont think this line of reasoning has any merit„next question, please! Its your mother, you know, from whom you inherit your head-hair-genes. Thats right, shes the one responsible. It doesnt matter if your grandfather on your fathers side has rich, luxuriant hair down to his arse IF your grandfather on your mothers side was a cue ball. ƒ argrrrrrrrrrrr!Ž Thus, my 95-year old blind mother was a bit taken aback recently when I called her up (while at sea, phone-patched through my SSB) and yelled, ƒ b@%#h !Ž I know, I know, how crude and unfair. My “rst thought while exploring my options was: transplant! I raced to my doctor. He told me„after sadly glancing at my shiny head„that you cant transplant what isnt there.Ž What the hell does that mean,Ž I said, outraged. Im an American with money. You arent supposed to tell me No!Ž Instead, youre supposed to drain my bank account, then gently inform me ƒ well, that you cant help me without an additional 50,000 bucks ƒ thats the American way!Ž Im sorry,Ž said the doctor, but I cant help you unless youre willing to consider territory ƒ well, further south.Ž So there you have it„truly an awkward moment. As you consider, seriously consider, whether you want a head bristling with pubic hair. I couldnt help it. I cried. And screamed. And ranted. And said, ƒ I dont want my pubic hair ƒ well, public! Everyone calls me a dickhead already!Ž Yes, going bald is ego-bruising. I am becoming a classic baldy sour! Various men react in various ways to an emerging shiny pate. Some green oriented man claimed that his chromedome was a solar cell which powered his libido. Alas, the guys wife de”ated this argument by asking, Whats a libido ƒ something to do with snoring?Ž Humor is, alas, the only way to go. Crying and stamping your feet only works for so long. So I attempt to put my best, most comical foot forward by regularly saying, I was

(So far, this is not working!) I cant do carpentry anymore„because Ive discovered that having a pencil behind your ear is hair-dependent, too. My pencil keeps drooping, Im sorry to say. Of course, the miser in me hoped that Id save so much money on shampoo and conditioner that Id become rich„ha! Do you know how much shaving cream I go through in a week? How many razors? Band-aids? Antiseptic? ƒ do you know how much a transfusion costs? I “gure I lose about a pint of blood every time I shave my head„and if I dont shave it, I looks even worse Besides, the two-day bristles are like having barbed wire growing out of your head, and about as eroticŽ said one young lady. Thats totally true„everything fabric sticks to your head, like Velcro. My wife cant take a ”ash picture of me anymore. Bounce-back,Ž she sneers. Forget all those miracle growth products: Ive tried every type of follicle fertilizer under my hat, all to no avail. No longer can I instinctively sense the slightest wind shift while in the cockpit„not sans my 10,000 head receptors! Even lice dont want to hang out with me anymore! The “rst thing I noticed was that it was taking longer and longer to wash my face in the morning. Damn it! Of course, there are advantages. For instance, my wife just attempted to be kind to me by saying, Well, if we ever have to get in the life raft, we wont lack for a signaling mirror!Ž EDITORS NOTE: Fatty and Carolyn are hatted ƒ er, headed for New Caledonia next. Capn Fatty Goodlander has lived aboard for 53 of his 60 years, and is currently on his third circumnavigation. He is the author of Chasing the Horizon and numerous other marine books. His latest, Buy, Out“t, and Sail is out now. Visit: so scared of losing my teeth„my hair fell out!Ž Okay, not my best joke. But its good for a groan, which, in this case, is the most you can hope for. Discouraged by my doctor, I went to a hair weaver whose sign read, If youve got the money, weve the time. He was an Italian fellow with a huge, full, rich mane of silver hair combed in a wave about two meters above his head. During the entire interview, he kept staring at himself in mirror while combing his hair and making little kissing sounds towards his re”ection. Where you a good squirrel?Ž he asked me. Huh?Ž I said back. Did you save any nuts for winter?Ž Its not those hairs Im worried about,Ž I grimaced. Alas,Ž he sighed, Im a hair weaver, not a magician.

22 ALLATSEA.NET MAY 2014 Racing Circuit The 2014 St. Maarten Heineken Regatta, the Caribbeans largest annual yacht-racing affair, was this year also one of the most competitive editions in the events long, 34-year history. In roughly half of the ”eets 20 separate classes, nothing was decided until the last race on the regattas “nal day, which was conducted in uncharacteristically light, shifty, maddening winds. When all was said and done, the boats and crews that mastered those ”uky breezes were deserving champions. The biggest winners in the 211-boat “eld couldnt have been more different. On one hand, there was the veteran team from Florida aboard Richard Wesslunds J/122, El Ocaso which won the regattas biggest division, the 182014 HEINEKEN REGATTABY HERB McCORMICKSPARKLING COMPETITION AND PLENTY OF SURPRISES boat CSA 4 class, and in so doing was also honored for the events Most Worthy Performance Overall. For Wesslund, this was familiar territory, as El Ocaso received the same prize in the 2012 St. Maarten Heineken Regatta. On the ”ip side, the other top boat was a huge surprise. In the last two Heinekens, thanks to the St. Maarten Sailing School and the St. Maarten Yacht Club, several crews of local youth sailors have participated in the event and proved to be skillful competitors. Even so, nobody expected them to threaten older, more experienced sailors. But in CSA 9, not only did the St. Maarten Yacht Club Youth Sailing Team, sailing a Beneteau First Class 10, challenge the status quo: They defeated it by winning their class.

Its a tremendous goal that, judging from the performance of the island kids, is clearly working. As always, the three-day regatta was conducted over the “rst long weekend of March. On the Thursday before the main event began, as it has for the last several years, the festivities were kicked off by the Gill Commodores Cup, a tune-up practice series for ”at-out spinnaker-division boats sponsored by Gill North America, the regattas of“cial technical-gear supplier.

However, as so often happens in yacht racing, the top boats found breeze when their competitors couldnt and capitalized by making the most of the testing conditions. The marquee classes, CSA 1 and CSA 2, put on grand shows. In CSA 1, for grand-prix racers, Irvine Laidlaws pretty blue Highland Fling XII with legendary Virgin Islands sailor Peter Holmberg onboard and calling tactics, held off a late charge by William Coatess Ker 43, Otra Vez to win the class by a single point.

As it was, their time of 2h 57m 13s was just sevenminutes slower. On Day 2 … Saturday the 8th … the competitors were once again treated to ideal conditions for what, for most classes, was a pair of races: a closed-course round-the-buoys race and a point-to-point distance contest from Simpson Bay to Marigot, on the islands French side. No regatta in the Caribbean boasts more bareboat charter boats or sleek, sporty multihulls, and both ”eets were showcased on the second day of action. Particularly impressive were Nils Ericksons Formula 40 cat, Soma and the entire “ve-boat Gunboat division, the powerful racer/cruiser catamarans that are, literally and “guratively, in a class of their own. Elvis a Gunboat 62, and Soma won their single races on Saturday, en route to undefeated records in the Multihull 1 and Multihull 2 classes.

All At Sea s Louay Habib looks at why the Royal Ocean Racing Club (RORC) Caribbean 600 is proving irresistible to a wide variety of yachts and sailors. For over 50-years, the Caribbean has hosted inshore yachting regattas but it wasnt until the late 1980s that sailing at night in the Caribbean was accepted as a safe practice, especially for sailors unfamiliar with the reefs surrounding many islands. In 2009, the RORC decided to start an offshore race in the Caribbean and in just six years, the RORC Caribbean 600 has become an internationally recognised offshore classic.

Warm trade winds, ocean swell and stunning islands are complimented by fantastic sunrises and sunsets and enchanting night sailing. However, any 600 mile race is tough and the Caribbean 600 requires many sail changes. For the crew, sleep is a luxury and the demanding course, which uses various islands as turning marks, keeps tacticians and navigators on alert. By far the most impressive class was IRC Zero, and what a race. George Davids RP90, Rambler was the favourite for Line Honours but Hap Fauths, JV72, Bella Mente was the “rst yacht home. Just looking at the hull shape on Bella Mente you can see that the yacht is a reaching machine.Ž commented David PHOTO: RORC/TIM WRIGHT/PHOTOACTION.COM


28 ALLATSEA.NET MAY 2014The big boat duel had played out to a fascinating “nale but that was not the only battle on the course. Two magni“cent schooners, Adela and Athos, fought each other mile after mile. A 600 mile match race between two schooners, it doesnt get better than that,Ž smiled Adela s skipper Greg Perkins.  Athos has really upped their game since last year and they are quicker downwind, so the lead was swapping around a lot, maybe six times during the race. At Redonda we were level and we only pulled away on the beat to the “nish. I am really proud of the boys on Adela who put in something like 50 plus ”awless sail changes.Ž Piet Vroons Ker 46, Tonnerre de Breskens won IRC One and the oldest skipper in the race recounted his close encounters with Adela For most of the “rst half of the race, we were in close contact with the schooners. I imagine we must have been a bit of a nuisance,Ž smiled Piet. IRC Two was won by Peter Sowerys First 40, Lancelot II with Vendee Globe sailor Alex Thomson on board. That was far harder than racing an IMOCA 60,Ž admitted Thomson after the race. I really enjoyed the race, but not Guadeloupe. It is pretty tough in the little boats, as we tend to get there at night with no wind inshore and going offshore is a long detour, so the bigger, quicker yachts will always have the advantage. However, the 600 is a great event with a great party atmosphere before and after the race.Ž For full results and more, visit: Louay Habib is a freelance yachting journalist who writes for a variety of clients, including The Volvo Ocean Race and the Royal Ocean Racing Club.

However, we will be back next year with the new Rambler George Sakellaris RP72, Shockwave won the Caribbean 600 overall. The victory required enormous effort from the crew and a big slice of luck. Shockwave and Bella Mente were locked in a duel around the course. Shockwave was often behind on the water but enjoyed about a minute an hour advantage on corrected time. The wind shadow on the leeward side of Guadeloupe is a critical part of the course. Bella Mente almost had the fenders out as they powered through the lee, enjoying katabatic wind right under the cliffs on the islands west coast. Shockwave very nearly went offshore, which would have been costly. There was a discussion about avoiding the wind shadow all together, Rambler went offshore and we thought about going with them.Ž admitted Shockwave s tactician Robbie Doyle. I spotted a cruising boat that was sailing along just “ne inshore, so we stayed in and although we didnt do as good a job as Bella Mente there, we got out okay but we knew we were behind on corrected time.Ž Bella Mente rounded the most easterly part of the course at Les Dsirade and cracked sheets for the power reach to Barbuda. In a few hours, she was 20-miles ahead of Shockwave and could taste overall victory. Bella Mente arrived off Barbuda at night and sailed beneath a huge black cloud near the mark, and suddenly, instead of continuing to romp along at 20 knots, she came to a grinding halt. Shockwave caught them up and hung on for the last 100 miles to take the overall win on corrected time.

In the end, it was two decades of experience “shing in this tournament (including three past wins), persistence and ”at calm seas that led the team aboard the Topaz 29 TwoFerSure to live up to the vessels name and take home the two top prizes with only one marlin release. Four boats … Leisure Lady, Living the Dream, Turn and Burn and TwoFerSure … took to the seas on the “rst day of “shing. A three to “ve foot swell kept the ”eet somewhat close to shore. TwoFerSure with owner/captain Tom Sedgwick at the helm, left their homeport of Frederiksted and steamed eight miles to a point off the northwest corner of the island where there is a usually productive sea mount. We didnt see a single marlin,Ž explains TwoFerSure angler, Ed Beach, but we did hear on the radio that there were some bites out to the east.Ž True to report, the team aboard David Johnsons Hatteras 65 Living the Dream raised four blues and hooked up two over the two days of “shing, but didnt get a single TwoFerSure Top Boat in the Golden Hook Challenge (from left) Edward Beach (Top Angler), Tom Sedgwick, Jim Collington and Steve SmithPHOTO: ALDA ANDUZE

It was a 22-minute “ght. The blue marlin was small, about 125lb. We tagged and released it healthy and it swam away. The catch was a real team effort.Ž Radio silence prevailed for the rest of the day. No wonder. No one else caught and released a marlin so it didnt take long to calculate the prize winners. TwoFerSure received its Top Boat trophy and Beach his Top Angler trophy at a BBQ awards ceremony held at the Golden Hook Fishing Clubs new clubhouse at Green Cay Marina. Normally, the seas off St. Croix in January, February and March can be quite productive for marlin “shing. In fact, the Clubs ”eet caught some 21 blues, whites and sail“sh during these months a few years ago. Pat Barsotti, tournament organizer, says, The “sh didnt seem hungry this year.

At least six of the islands junior sailors will compete in this multisport event of which the sailing portion will take place on Jinniu Lake in Nanjing, China, from August 18 to 23. This isnt the “rst time the regions sailors have taken part in these Games. In fact, the USVIs Ian Barrows earned a Gold Medal sailing the Boys Byte CII in 2010. The 2014 YOG will feature four classes: Boys and Girls Byte CII and Techno 293 Windsurfers. The Byte CII is not sailed very much in the Caribbean, so this has been a challenge,Ž explains the USVIs Scott McKenzie, who has wanted to defend the territorys title at the YOG ever since Barrows brought home the Gold. It was hard to learn an entirely new boat in a few months, but with the right training I was able to do it and to earn a berth to the Games at the North American Byte CII Championship in Florida in March.Ž Trinidad & Tobagos Abigail Affoo, who quali“ed for the YOG at the same event as McKenzie, says, The Byte CII is very different from a Laser or Optimist because of the high performance sail and adjustments necessary to make it go fast.Ž Celeste Lugtmeijer, who will represent the Dominican Republic at the YOG after qualifying at the 2013 Byte World Championships, agrees and adds, Everything is different about Bytes and Optis; the shape of the sail, its material, the haul, the sailing technique, the traveler, the functioning of the controls.

34 ALLATSEA.NET MAY 2014 Tips & Tricks WATER, WATER EVERYWHERE CATCH IT IF YOU CAN PHOTOS AND STORY BY ROSIE BURR Water is vital to life and a precious commodity these days. In the Caribbean … despite the vast amounts of rainfall we seem to experience … water supplies can often dwindle or even become contaminated after the passing of a hurricane, so it pays to have your own backup supply. Take a hike inland and youll see almost every dwelling has a huge water butt that “lls through a pipe from the gutters. Despite being short in minerals and salts from mountain and river, rainwater, in its purest form, is the sweetest of them all. Humans need approximately half a liter of water per day to survive and two liters to avoid thirst. Even today, when water-makers are the norm on many cruising boats, there are a lot of ingenious ways of collecting rainwater to supplement your supply. These include especially designed rain catchers, converted Biminis, sun covers, and awnings modi“ed with through-hull “ttings, gutters and hose pipes all adapted to catch water and channel it into tanks or jerry jugs. Some boats build dams around their on deck “lling ports and scupper drains which divert rainwater to the tanks through Y-valves. I have even seen pieces of yarn pegged to Biminis and directed into a bucket. Whatever method you choose, it can be tailored to suit your boat. Whether it is for convenience or cost, environmental reasons or the simple pleasure of getting it for free, collecting rainwater should be carefully considered especially in terms of drinking water. Air pollution from industry or highly populated areas can be a cause for concern though this is less likely for most of us sailing in the Caribbean. Saharan dust blown across from Africa, may cause more of a problem although there seems to be little information on the effect this has on drinking water, youll want to avoid consuming it. The water catchment area is also where biological or chemical pollution can occur. Decks and rain catchers in the form of Biminis or other permanently-mounted outside “ttings need to be free from salt, debris and other contaminants such as spilt diesel or oil, dirt from shore-side visits and bird poop. A “rst ”ush diverter or a way of letting these areas wash off is a necessary “rst step when collecting rainwater. Once you have decided on your method of collection With so much rain in the Caribbean there is no reason not to catch any


36 ALLATSEA.NET MAY 2014and storage, the next job is to put the “rst “lter in place. This can be as simple as a piece of mesh or gauze (or even coffee “lters not paper ones) secured over the scupper drain or tank “ller. This is to stop any large particles like dead insects or grit from entering the tanks. Ideally, the water should then be held in an isolated tank incase it becomes polluted. The tank should be solid, sealed and safe from leaks and contaminants. It is a good idea to have two water “lters in place. Some recommend having two “lters in tandem … a course one and a “ne one. Others suggest placing a course “lter before the pump to stop it from blocking and to protect it from damage, and another “ner charcoal or ceramic “lter before the tap/faucet to remove pathogens and “ner particles. These are readily found on the market today. It is important to keep an eye on the “lters and change when necessary. They can be a breeding ground for bacteria if not maintained. If in any doubt about the purity of the water it can be disinfected either by boiling for “ve minutes, which is best if you dont want to add chemicals, or by treating with small quantities of chlorine, the cheapest method. Ideally “ve to eight drops of general unscented liquid household bleach containing 5.25 … 8.25 percent chlorine will treat one gallon of water, a little more if it is cloudy. Thats approx 1 teaspoon per “ve gallons. It is best to let it stand for a couple of hours “rst before drinking. Chlorine will kill most common bacteria. Finally, periodically clean out your tanks Tips & Tricks thoroughly by scrubbing and washing out with chlorine. Collecting rainwater for drinking purposes is a controversial subject. It is a matter of personal choice, taking into consideration the area you cruise, local air pollution, your lifestyle and your particular water catchment system. Rosie and her husband Sim Hoggarth on yacht Wandering Star have cruised the Caribbean and North America fulltime for nine years.

Sailors folklore tells the story that sea glass are the tears shed by mermaids caused by the jealous wrath of Neptune when they fall in love with a sailor, or else they are their tears shed when a sailor drowns. These broken pieces of frosted, weathered glass are found washed up on coastal shores or along river banks. There are two types … those that are created in a salty environment and those in a fresh. The ocean gems have been tossed and turned along the ocean ”oor, abrading themselves along the way over rocks and sand and tumbling in the waves, which help to create their polished appearance. A high ph balance of the sea also adds to the frostiness of the glass by a process called hydration which extracts lime and soda from its surface creating C shaped pits that can been seen on close inspection. Ph balance or acidity varies in different coastal regions allowing for some sea glass to be more frosted than others. Fresh water sea glass (or beach glass as it is commonly called) is found by inland lakes and rivers. This glass has a more shiny patina compared to its salt water counterparts. It can take between 20-50 years for a shard to become what enthusiasts would consider a well rounded specimen, where the sharp and shiny sides have been worn away to a smooth edge. The colour, size and shape you “nd also add to its rarity and value. White, brown and green are fairly common colours because of mass production originating from windows, wine and beer bottles or soda bottles. Olive greens or soft blues are a little less common probably from old canning jars and liquor bottles. Pinks and purples may well have come from clear glass that was clari“ed with magnesium or selenium as the sand that made the glass was amber in colour. Over time, the sun oxidizes the magnesium and selenium creating the lavender and pink colours. Cobalt blues, turquoise blues, amethyst, reds and yellows are all rare and considered prize pieces. They could be part of anything from antique medicine or poison bottles, from tableware to decorative art glass, from old Chinese “shing ”oats to mariners broken navigation lights. Designer glass from blown or stained glass is most prized especially as you might “nd a mixed coloured piece. Orange is perhaps the rarest colour you will “nd, originating during the art deco period in the form of various tableware and vases. Black glass is also considered to be fairly rare due in part to how hard it is to “nd amongst dark rocks and rubble, but also because it dates back to the old seafaring days when goods were transported across the seas in darkened glass containers as their contents were sensitive to light. Iron slag was added to the glass-making process to darken and fortify

It is in fact not black at all, but dark olive green or brown when held up to the light. It is referred to as black as that is how it appears in normal light. Sea glass can be found anywhere there is a beach or rocky shoreline that is open to the ocean. Some glass gets washed ashore from old shipwrecks but mostly it is rubbish from the days when the oceans were used as a dumping ground. Anywhere that is close to a shipping lane can be rewarding. A smooth clean beach wont produce good results but a rock-strewn beach with debris may well be fruitful. Low tide is the best time to hunt. Since the advent of plastic, the amount of sea glass in the oceans is on the decline. The Caribbean is a great place to hunt for sea glass because of the old trading routes from seafaring days. Ships passed through from all over the world especially from Spain, England and the North Americas. Anywhere that used to be a major port will be a good hunting ground for glass treasures. So, next time you take a stroll down a beach, keep your eyes peeled for that special piece that might date back to the days of Columbus.

The radio equipment has been rendered useless and you are left ”oating or treading water in the blue abyss. This could spell the end for some … but it doesnt have to. If there was an EPIRB, PLB or satellite messenger aboard then help could already be on the way. As conscientious boaters we should all hope for the best and plan for the worst to ensure the safety of all onboard. Filing a ”oat plan and having all the required safety equipment on board is a start, but if things were to go horribly wrong while at sea one of these emergency beacons could save your life. Despite this, many boaters dont have this equipment. With advances in technology and lower prices, and even rentals available from organizations such as those offered by Boat US, there is little reason not to. With over 35,000 people rescued since the inception of the 406 beacon in the early 1980s, they are well proven. Whether you are a cruiser, “sherman, day sailor or paddle enthusiast there is a beacon to “t your needs. There are EPIRBs (Emergency Position Indicating Beacons), PLBs (Personal Locating Beacons) and personal satellite messengers. Each has its particular advantages and any of them can get help to you in a life-threatening situation when all other forms of communication are lost. EPIRBs are the most commonly known variety of rescue beacons and can be found on vessels from ocean liners to cruising sailboats. Registered to the vessel they reside on, these emergency beacons (also known as 406 beacons) transmit an emergency signal when activated. A signal containing a unique identi“er number is transmitted at approximately 5 watts on 406 MHz (as well as a homing signal on 121.5 MHz) and is broadcast to and received by Technology LIFESAVING RESCUE BEACONSBY GLENN HAYES PHOTO COURTESY OF ACR ELECTRONICS

That signal is then sent on to a control center that determines which search and rescue organization should be contacted and dispatched (worldwide). If the EPIRB has a built-in GPS, the position information is also transmitted and can be received by receivers placed on GOES weather satellites that are part of the GEOSTAR system. Mikele DArcangelo of ACR Electronics, a major manufacturer of emergency beacons explains why having a builtin GPS is so important. ACR has made a stand going forward that we will only manufacture GPS-enabled EPIRBs because the bene“ts GPS adds are truly life saving. Most people think that adding GPS coordinates only narrows down the search radius, and it does. But the other bene“t that a lot of readers do not understand is the additional time saved to being rescued that GPS provides. A non-GPS EPIRB has to rely on the LEOSAR satellites to use Doppler shift principles to triangulate your position. These satellites go overhead typically once every 45 minutes.Ž You are at the mercy of timing, says DArcangelo. You could be lucky enough to set it off (the EPIRB) when a satellite is within transmit range, but if youre not so lucky the wait for one to appear could be as long as an hour. With GPS positions added to your distress message the EPIRB uses the GEOSAR satellites to instantly tell SAR forces within two minutes exactly where you are.Ž This time saving can be critical in a rescue scenario. EPIRBs are available with and without built-in GPS but are becoming more common with GPS capabilities. Cost of these units has dropped considerably over the last few years and they can be found under the $500 mark. They are available in two categories. Category 1 units are autoPHOTO: GLENN HAYES


44 ALLATSEA.NET MAY 2014models can be purchased for under $200. It is worth noting that all these units have to be manually deployed and need to be held above the water to transmit their signal. Some models ”oat while others require the help of a buoyant case. It is recommended that all should be tethered to your person or life jacket when in the water. It should be noted that these beacons (along with EPIRBs) must be registered but do not require any kind of subscription. Some units now have the option of sending a test message that can be customized and sent via text or email, however, this service does require a subscription fee and there may be a limit to the number of test messages that can be sent. Check with the manufacturer for details but remember that if you do not require this service there are no additional costs other than the cost of the unit and that of battery replacement every few years. There is a third option known as a satellite messenger but these are in a completely separate and growing category and will be addressed in a subsequent article. No matter which you choose, when venturing out away from readily accessible help you should have some kind of beacon aboard. The cost is lower than ever to purchase and higher than ever if you need one and dont have it to deploy. Glenn Hayes is a freelance photographer and writer living in West Central Florida.

Technology matically deployed and are mounted to a vessel in a special bracket. This has a hydrostatic release that will free the unit and activate it when submerged. Mounting location is critical. It should be placed where it can be grabbed in an emergency but also in a location where, if it does autorelease, it will not become trapped or entangled in the vessels superstructure or rigging. A Category 2 unit is manually deployed and activation is manual via a switch. PLBs or Personal Locator Beacons are another form of emergency beacon that is rapidly gaining in popularity and has proven wildly successful. Just in the initial test phase, before they were released to the general public, these units saved over 400 lives. Unlike their larger brethren these compact units are designed for personal use and are registered to the individual rather than a vessel (registration is mandatory and required, just like EPIRBs, and can be done easily via fax, mail or online). These small (sometimes palm-sized) beacons operate in the same manner as EPIRBs and can also have GPS built in, enabling position information to be transmitted. Designed to be carried on the person these small beacons are capable of transmitting for a minimum of 24 hours at up to 5 watts, but because they have smaller batteries this can be as much as half the time of the larger EPIRBs. Their batteries, like their larger relatives, should be replaced by an authorized repair facility approximately every “ve years. They can be used on the water and on land and, because they are registered to the individual, they can travel from vessel to vessel without having to be re-registered. These units are ideal for crew who move from vessel to vessel or operators of smaller craft that lack the space or ideal mounting for a Category 1 or 2 EPIRB.

MAY 2014 ALLATSEA.NET 47What can be done: Shark “n soup, as part of Chinese culture, is purported to enhance appetite, rejuvenate, restore vital energy, enhance sexual potency and improve skin quality. All of these claims have been found to be false and should be dumped into the dustbin of myth along with rhinoceros horn. In fact this tasteless soup is more likely to be dangerous to your health due to high levels of mercury. The myth needs to be exposed in a big way. A representative of the PEW environment group was recently in the British Virgin Islands (BVI) to enlighten leaders on the plight of sharks worldwide. During a Caribbean summit of political and business leaders on Necker Island, Deputy Premier Dr. Kedrick Pickering announced governments intention to protect sharks and rays in the territory. This is crucial because although sharks are only caught as bycatch at present who knows when international shark “nners will appear on the horizon. Legislation is needed now. Kate Brunn, Founder of Reef Guardians BVI and part owner of UBS Dive Centre has been doing a stalwart job of protecting the reefs from the invasive lion“sh. She will now act as spokesperson on shark protection initiatives in the BVI. Ms Brunn is interested in exploring the possibility of shark tourism as well. In the Bahamas shark diving generates millions in revenue every year, according to PEW. Cashing in on watching these amazing creatures as well as protecting them from ruthless “shers would seem to be a win/win situation. The balance of our oceanic ecosystem needs to be protected. Julian Putley is the author of The Drinking Mans Guide to the BVI Sunfun Calypso and Sunfun Gospel. One of the most common questions from tourists to the Caribbean, especially from boaters, is: Are there any sharks in these waters?Ž It seems that the “ctional “lm Jaws from the mid 70s is still on everyones mind. Personally, I refused to watch such a misleading and sensational story that turned thousands away from the pleasures of seaside fun. Statistics show that youre more likely to be struck by lightning than to suffer a shark attack. Every year up to 75 million sharks are killed by humans as opposed to about “ve persons killed by sharks. Staggering, isnt it? And the main cause of such egregious slaughter is “nning, the slicing off of shark “ns for lucrative Oriental markets while simultaneously dumping the shark back into the sea to die. For many, sharks are seen as the ogres of the sea; predatory monsters, the killing of which is doing the world a favor, but nothing could be further from the truth. Sharks play an important role in maintaining the function and balance of the marine ecosystem. One example is that the decline in large sharks off North Carolina caused a huge increase in the cownose ray population (a shark food source), which eat scallops, clams and oysters. In coral reef ecosystems, corals depend on herbivorous “sh like the parrot “sh to eat algae and thus promote the growth of new corals. When sharks are removed from the ecosystem large “sh, which feed on the herbivores, increase, new coral growth is stymied and the reef is threatened. Sharks are very susceptible to over “shing because of their life cycles; slow growth, late maturation and few offspring. The IUCN (International Union for Conservation of Nature) determined the status of 21 pelagic shark and ray species commonly caught in high seas “sheries. Sixteen of the 21 species were considered threatened or near threatened with extinction. Those common to the Caribbean include the manta ray, thresher shark, short “n and long “n mako shark and the hammerhead. If shark decimation is not curtailed now the worlds oceanic ecosystem and coral reefs will continue to suffer greatly. Shark “nning is the most devastating form of shark slaughter and probably would have been banned years ago except for the publics perception of the shark as being a dangerous and unpredictable predator. It is also extremely lucrative; shark “ns can sell for as much as US$700 per kilo and a bowl of shark “n soup can sell for $100. As we have seen sharks are really disinterested in humans as a food. The other problem is that sharks are a serious bycatch issue in commercial long-line “shing often making up a quarter of the catch. Although some sharks caught as bycatch can be retained and landed for sale, often they are thrown overboard either dead or seriously injured. In short, sharks are threatened.

Nine countries competed in the three Paralympic class events: 2.4mR (one person), SKUD 18 (two persons … one man, one woman) and the three-person Sonar. The latter being the boat sailed by the U.S. Virgin Islands team. The new USVI Team comprised David Flaherty, Tony Sanpere and Bob Blackwell, along with their coach, six-time Olympian John Foster. From Puerto Rico, the ever-cheerful Julio Papote Reguero was there in his 2.4mR. In 2008 Reguero quali“ed for the Paralympic Sailing Regatta in China. A week with the Paralympic sailors is an interesting and uplifting experience. All the sailors assembled at the Shake-A-Leg location in Coconut Grove; South Floridas premier adaptive watersports community serving people of all abilities. Also located here is Team Paradise, founded by Olympic Gold Medalist Magnus Liljedahl. Team Paradise is a non-pro“t organization working to introduce people with disabilities to the sport of sailing and also to develop athletes for the Paralympic Summer Games. The sailors at this years World Cup had a week of adapting to very light and variable winds on Biscayne Bay. Many mornings were spent sitting around, trying to make the most of it; chatting, laughing and playing pranks. On the “nal day, the race committee (and sailors) made a gallant attempt to get in some racing; but the hazy, humid day with light airs made it impossible and the honors were given based on the previous days performance. The 2014 2.4mR gold medal went to Megan Pascoe of Great Britain. Britains Alexandra Rickham and Niki Birrell captured gold in the SKUD 18, while Bruno Jourdren, Eric Flageul and Nicolas Vimont Vicary of France were victorious in the Sonar.

60 ALLATSEA.NET MAY 2014 United States Virgin Islands There were two facets to the St. Croix Yacht Club hosted 2nd Annual Bill Chandler Sun“sh Regatta in February that few if any other sailing competitions in the Caribbean can claim: (1) the singlehanded sailors ranged in age from 11 to 70-plus years, and (2) the only class featured the Sun“sh dinghy. Twelve sailors took to the seas for the two-day regatta, named in honor of the late Bill Chandler. Chandler spent countless volunteer hours teaching kids to sail and favored the Sun“sh when he took to the seas himself. Peter Stanton, whom Chandler taught when he was a young sailor, “nished “rst overall with all “rst place bullets except for one second place “nish.

However, there are Sun“sh Class Associations in Puerto Rico, Barbados, Aruba, Bonaire and Curacao. Stanton explains, The Sun“sh is a relatively simple boat and can be adjusted so that older folks thats dont bend as easily can get under the boom and across the boat easier.

A silver medalist in the 49er Class at the 2004 Olympics, Luka was joined by fellow Ukraine Igor Matvienko, who won gold aboard a 470 in the 1996 Games. Dmitry Potosky rounded out Lukas winning three-man crew, who earned the $5,000 “rst-place check for their efforts. I have a really good team,Ž said Luka. We had a couple of lucky moments that really helped us. We didnt expect to win. We just did our best. Once we had the boat-handling down and that isnt a problem, you can begin to play chess, which is what match racing is.Ž Nikiforov and his team took home the $3,000 purse for Winning skipper Rodion Luka accepts the winners trophy from Chris Marshall (far right) of Budget MarinePHOTO: BOB GRIESER Rodion Luka receives a congratulatory hug from one of the Russian crewPHOTO: GARY BROWN/OCEANMEDIA


MAY 2014 ALLATSEA.NET 67 second place. In the petit “nal, Polands Przemyslaw Tarnacki beat Colin Rathbun from the British Virgin Islands by a 2-1 score to secure the $1,000 prize for third. Russian skipper Nikiforov sailed an outstanding series, tearing through the round-robin tournament with a perfect score, including a victory over Luka in the 10th and “nal ”ight of racing. It was Lukas “rst loss of the day and it set up an unexpected match in the best-of-three race “nals. And after the “rst race, when Nikiforov overtook Luka on the second of three windward legs, and then held on for the victory to remain undefeated for the series, it appeared to be the Russians day. But it turned out Luka still had some comeback magic of his own. Race 2 was delayed after the pin-end buoy went adrift, but once it was reset, Luka took the start by six seconds and never looked back, leading Nikiforov around every mark of the three-lap course to register a wire-to-wire victory to knot the “nals at 1-1. With solid breeze now providing ideal 10-12 knot wind conditions, the stage was set for a winnertake-all third and “nal race. After such a dramatic day of yacht racing, it proved to be an anticlimactic “nish. Luka and Nikiforov were in close quarters during the entire pre-start cat-and-mouse sequence, but with less than a minute before the start, the Russian blinked and Luka gained a slight advantage. They made a mistake and we got a half boat length ahead,Ž said Luka. We were quite lucky. After that, it was quite easy. We got the “rst shift and took control.Ž Luka had a solid lead at the start, extending a 19-second lead at the “rst weather mark to a dominating 39-second advantage at the second. From there, it was only a matter of covering Nikiforov to the “nish line, which Luka did with poise and aplomb. When he crossed the line he shared high “ves with his triumphant teammates. He (Nikiforov) dominated all the way through the round robin and got to the “nal race,Ž said Robbie Ferron, the founder of Budget Marine. One silly mistake put him in second place. I really feel badly for him. All day he was so technically correct and disciplined.Ž He added, But Luka is a worthy champion, and the Ukranians name will now be etched on the Budget Marine Match Racing Cup trophy.

MAY 2014 ALLATSEA.NET 69 Carriacou CARRIACOU DOWN ISLAND TIME TRAVEL Sailing into Carriacous Tyrell Bay is a refreshing tack back in time. The bay, nearly half-a-mile wide, meets the land in a gentle curve, attached by a ribbon of sand and road. The bay often accommodates over 100 vessels ”ying ”ags from all corners of the world. From the anchorage theres an obvious lack of amenities: no mega marinas or mooring “eld; dingy docks are sketchy and the shoreline is void of all things modern and manic. The simplicity continues ashore in the village of Harvey Vale where youll “nd some of the friendliest locals in the Windward Islands, especially if you remember to put salutations before business. Tyrell Bays history is steeped in maritime tradition and commerce. Wooden cargo vessels, built on the beach, were routinely maintained by careening at anchor. Fishing was done under sail; lobsters collected by woven traps. Working the sea continues to be both livelihood and tradition. Upon your arrival, you may be met by a small boat offering fresh catch and some wine with which to wash it down. Every menu ashore boasts lambi, lobster, and “sh„ stewed, fried, baked, curried or corned. New services crop up periodically and existing ones segue to meet the demands of modern vessels and visitors. PHOTOS AND STORY BY JANET HEIN Wi-Fi is abundant; there are two laundry facilities and buses run day and night. Carriacou Marine, Ltd., which “lls the southwest corner of the bay, is a full service boatyard with a 50 ton travel lift and ample space for yard work and repair. Snowbirds love it for off season storage. The tidy compound includes a mini market, cafe and Island Water World outlet.

Owners Daniela Angelico Stewart and Kate Stroebel embraced the sites artifacts, creating an elegant, yet nostalgic dining venue by turning table saws and band saws into dining tables and placing on display a collection of antique dinghies and boat blocks. Down the beach is Lazy Turtle, now in the hands of Sue Hamelin and Shayne Wallis. They set out a year ago from England, in search of a restaurant and an island to love. Since opening in November, they havent looked back. Their pizza oven and skilled staff produce island inspired pies and theres frequently live music to help dance it off.

Topping the list of popular night spots is Sundowners Beach Hangout, a tiny wooden structure clinging to the edge of the road. Painted turquoise and purple, itll grab your attention as you stroll by but if its dark, youll be lured, instead, by the amazing aroma of Jeanette Henderson and Frankie Colliers local dishes and stunning breads. They switch it up, blackboard style, with palate pleasing specials like callaloo fritters or Carriacou style oil down.

76 ALLATSEA.NET MAY 2014 Grenada The “rst day, IWW Die Hard won the North South Wines Veuve Cliquot Cup. Yearwood explains, We positioned ourselves to start on starboard tack, with speed, close to the committee boat allowing us to tack out early rather than to continue, like the ”eet, towards the left and shallow water, which would have meant coming back out against huge and short seas that would have stopped us in our tracks. It worked because we rounded the windward mark with the biggest boats of the ”eet.Ž During the second race for the Netherlands Insurance Cup, the IWW Die Hard team judged correctly that there was more wind on the right during the long downwind leg to Prickly Bay, which at the same time had larger waves due to shallower water. These two factors enabled them to “nd more sur“ng opportunities and make up for the J/24s much shorter waterline compared to the rest of the ”eet. IWW Die Hard also triumphed in the race for the Westerhall Cup. However, the team lost the series fourth and “nal IWW Cup to the nearly twice as large Dufour 44 Piccolo driven by Grenadas Mike Bingley. Bingley accomplished this feat thanks to a quick learning curve on a boat new to him and with inexperienced crew. My boat had some rigging problems so Andrew Yates generously lent us Piccolo and some of my staff at Palm Tree Marine, who had never raced in a regatta, joined us for a wonderful time,Ž Bingley explains. When your team can gel together on a new boat as fast as the team I had, and cooperate for the common cause, that is a good recipe for winning.Ž Ten teams, including two from yachts who recently participated in the Oyster World Rally, match raced on 33ft Rush 10 catamarans. The “rst round matches proved fast, exciting and extremely close. Unfortunately, at the beginning of the second round, one of the Rush 10s dismasted and racing stopped. Bingley, who match and ”eet raced, says, I enjoy racing no matter the type of race. Since match racing uses two evenly matched boats, it leaves it down to the experience of the crew.Ž Having fun is what this regatta is all about, says SGR chairman Jana Caniga. Sailors enjoy our ”eet, match, and junior racing programs. And our great parties, top notch musical entertainment, and wide range of other water and land-based activities makes it a fun regatta for all, sailors and non-sailors, Grenadians and visitors alike. We take great pride in that.Ž The 2015 SGR is tentatively set for the second week in March. For full results, visit: Carol M.
