Transat Ag2r Concarneau Saint Barth

"CALM AFTER THE STORM"


wenty-eight identical boats set
sail on Sunday, April 9th in the
8th edition of the Transat
Ag2r, the transatlantic race whose
finish line is in Saint Barth. With
two people aboard each one, 27 of
the Figaro Benetteau sailboats
passed the qualification checkpoint


experienced the same damage to
their forestay which also broke off
the coast of Finisterre, in high winds
and high waves. The two sailors
were not injured, and also managed
to save their mast. They made it to
the checkpoint in time on Tuesday,
but also headed toward Vigo, after


case in this spot feared by sailors. In
fact, in a radio interview, Jean Mau-
rel noted that, "many of the teams
complained of some damage, from
torn spinnakers that needed to be
repaired as fast as possible to loose
sheets and broken halyards." Things
should improve as weather condi-
tions are expected to improve later in
the week.
The sailboats left Concarneau on
April 9 at 1:00pm and are expected
in Saint Barth, the habitual arrival
port, at the end of April. Each arrival
is met out on the water by numerous
race fans. And the main dock,
reserved for the boats in the racing
fleet, comes alive with various activ-
ities every day.

*Also called "Route du Cafe," the
Transat Jacques Vabre is another
important transatlantic race for
teams of two from Le Havre (France)
to Salvador de Bahia Hti, i:,


rnoto : van Leaaa


by 4:00pm on Tuesday afternoon
(French time). The duo aboard "Vir-
bac-Paprec" (comprised of French-
man Jean-Pierre Dick twice the
first place winner of the Transat
Jacques Vabre*- and sixth in the last
Vend6e Globe, an around the world
race with no stops and no assis-
tance- and another experienced
French sailor, Bruno Jourdren) were
forced to abandon the race after they
broke their forestay (the cable with
connects the top of the mast to the
front of the boat) off the coast of
Finisterre. They were however able
to avoid breaking the mast itself.
But unable to make the necessary
repairs, they motored into the Bay of
Vigo, the largest port in Galicia,
Spain, to find shelter. A second duo,
that of Marine Chombart de Lauwe
and Julien Brang6 aboard "Esprit
93," had the same bad luck and


deciding to do "everything they
could to set sail again."
Tuesday afternoon, Charles Cau-
drelier and Nicolas B6renger aboard
"Bostik" were still in the lead, even
if the director of the race, Jean Mau-
rel noted, "the positions are not offi-
cial and very variable. The separa-
tions are very slightL: 20 boats with-
in 30 miles. All it would take is a
gybe after a change in wind direction
to lose seven, eight, nine or even ten
places." No matter what else hap-
pens, the debut of this Transat Ag2r
will be marked by a second night of
strong winds. Sailing with their spin-
nakers unfurled, the 28 boats in the
Transat Ag2r sailed past Cape Finis-
terre in very challenging conditions:
35 knots of north-east wind (force
8)... fortunately they were not sail-
ing against the wind, but the sea was
rough and agitated, as is often the


The duo aboard I -Paprec",
Jean-Pierre Dick and Bruno Jourdren,
were forced to abandon the race
they broke their forestay.

11th Annual Saint Barth Film Festival,

April 25-30, 2006 at AJOE


It's that time of year
again, when the island
of Saint Barth turns
into a Mecca for Caribbean
cinema. Founded in 1996,
the Saint Barth Film Festi-
val has a decidedly
Caribbean beat. "We want-
ed to bring a different kind
of film to Saint Barth,"
says Joshua Harrison, co-
directed of the festival.
This means films made by
filmmakers from through-
out the Caribbean basin or
about Caribbean themes.
Over the past decade the
festival has shown an
eclectic mix of over 60
films from a range of
Caribbean islands, includ-
ing Cuba, Guadeloupe and
Martinique, as well as
Latin American countries
that touch the Caribbean,
including Guatemala and
Colombia.

This year we have three
films from Cuba: Habana
Blues, Suite Habana, and
Viva Cuba, although once
again we have been foiled
by the attempt of bringing
Cuban filmmakers to Saint
Barth, as there are very few
flights that do not transit
via Miami or San Juan,
where Cubans of course
cannot alight. On the other
hand, we have more guests
that ever before, with a
long list of filmmakers,
actors, and even a leading
musician, Dominik Coco,
from Guadeloupe. Dominik
Coco will be featured in a
documentary about his
career, a 45-minute film
called 15 Lann6 Mizik (Fif-
teen Years of Music) by a
very talented young film-
maker, also from Guade-
loupe, Janluk Stanislas.


Music is also the focus of
Santo Domingo Blues, a
documentary about bachata
musicians by US director,
Alex Wolfe. And this year's
roster includes Pluie d'e-
spoir (Rain of Hope) by
Jaques Roc from Haiti.

Another filmmaker from
Guadeloupe, Tony Coco-
Viloin, is back for the third
consecutive year, with a
new short film called Let-
tre a Irene. This film was
shot in Guadeloupe last
February and two of the
extras are Rosemond
Gr6aux (also a festival
organizer) and his sister
Jeanne-Marie, who play
WWI soldiers from the
French West Indies (inter-
estingly their paternal
grandfather from Saint
Barth fought for the
French in WWI...). This is
the first time that "actors"
from Saint Barth appear in
one of our invited films.

There are a few other firsts
this year: the first film by a
Saint Barth-based filmmak-
er- Expedition Prototype
by Cedric Robion, a film
chronicle of the adventures
of a group of sailors/artists
from Saint Barth to Patago-
nia last year; and the first
year we have added short
films to almost every
evening program. We will
continue our films-in-the-
schools program, showing
the students a film called
Another World, by Steve
Moreau, tracing the jour-
ney of two sailors who
rowed their way across the
Atlantic in a small boat.
This is a perfect tie-in to
the Ag2r, as each class will
be following one of the


boats in that transatlantic
challenge which is sched-
uled to arrive in Saint Barth
right on the heels of the
festival.

From April 25-April 30,
every evening there will
be a film screening at
AJOE in Lorient, one of
the principal sponsors of
the festival. And every
night there will be won-
derful films to discover
(two of them even have
English sub-titles this
year!), wonderful people
to meet. Where else in the
Caribbean can you find a
cinema under the stars,
with a projectionist from
Denmark, and guests from


throughout the West
Indies, France, and the
United States? All made
possible by the municipali-
ty of Saint Barth, the
DRAC in Guadeloupe
(regional cultural affairs
office), the Regional
Council in Guadeloupe,
AJOE, and the numerous
businesses, hotels, restau-
rants, and individuals on
the island that help us
house and feed a troupe of
filmmakers. It's a unique
festival and we invite you
to be part of the fun. See
you at the movies!

11th edition

of World Book Day,

a first in Saint Barth


Initiated by UNESCO in
1995, World Book Day
marks its llth anniversary
on April 23, and will be cele-
brated for the first time in Saint
Barth this year. Launched by a
group of book lovers, and
coordinated by Didier Bensa
and Jean-Pierre Hennequet, the
local event will take place on
Sunday, April 23 from 9:00am
to 1:00pm in front of the Wall
House municipal museum.
Various activities will be held
to help promote the diffusion
of books, and encourage every-
one, and especially young peo-
ple, to enjoy the pleasures of
reading, and to salute the con-
siderable contribution that
authors make to the -i.i.ugil
process and to universal cul-
ture. There will also be a book
exchange, with books in
French and in English, organ-
ized by Carol Ann Vanginder-
tael (0690.57.75.37) and
Marie-Blanche L6d6e
(0590.27.74.19). The idea is
simple: you bring your books
on April 23 and trade- or
sell- them. If you would like
to donate your books to the
event, please call one of the
organizers before April 23 so


they can pick them up. The
Barnes Bookstores and Funny
Face will have stands with
their special choice of books.
Publisher C6cile Lucot, who
took over "Editions Latanier"
last year, will present books
from her catalogue, including
the French-English "odes" to
Saint Barth and Saint Martin
by Stanislas Defize, simply
called "History of Saint-Barth"
and "History of Saint-Martin,"
that C6cile recently re-pub-
lished. A stand for children will
include various activities
including reading of stories,
illustration of texts written by
children, word games, and the
discovery of books and writ-
ing. Painter Jean-Pierre Bal-
lagny will demonstrate how to
create the art for a cartoon. The
public will be able to fill in the
word bubbles.... The local the-
atre troupe, SB Artists, will
participate as well with the
reading of works by local
authors who are also invited to
be on hand to answer questions
that the public might ask about
the art of writing. Celebrate
Book Day in Saint Barth...
Sunday, April 23!


A motorboat sinks off

the coast of Saint Barth


he 30' boat bap-
tized "Lutteur 2"
sank on Friday,
April 7 in the early
afternoon, approximate-
ly 12 nautical miles
from the point of Gou-
verneur. The boat
belongs to Saint Barth
resident Didier Troadec,
who is also one of the
captains of the SNSM
rescue boat. He was on
the boat alone and had
gone fishing early that
morning. At the
moment of the incident,
he was on the bridge of
the boat an explosion,
and then flames from
the interior of the cabin,
where he had just start-
ed to reheat his lunch,
surprised him. Armed
with a fire extinguisher,
he tried unsuccessfully
to limit the fire. The
flames spread rapidly
-lii.'u, i .ul the cabin,
then to the rest of the
boat. He just had time to
send an SOS to the
SNSM before he had to
evacuate the boat,
which was about to
sink. Didier Troadec
had to jump into the
water to get to his life


raft as the roof of the
boat, which was also
burning by then,
blocked it. Since the
SNSM rescue boat, the
Contre-Amiral Noel,
out of service for the
past two weeks, was not
available, it took private
individuals to come to
the aid of the captain of
the "Lutteur 2."
Fr6d6ric and a crew
member, aboard Or6o,
were the first to arrive
and recover Didier
Troadec. The firemen,
and Ing6nu Magras,
president of the rescue
at sea station, also
arrived aboard
Megawatt, one of the
boats belonging to Yan-
nis Marine. The motor-
boat from the yacht,
Reverie, also helped put
out the fire, just before
watching the boat sank.
Didier Troadec was not
injured but due to
smoke inhalation, he
was taken to the local
hospital but was
released during the
afternoon. It seems as if
an explosion in the
boat's propane tank
caused the explosion.

ARIES (March 21- April 19):
Real breakthroughs are possible
now, if you can dive into the
adventure and just let it happen.
You are exploring new levels of
Being. Try to embrace and inte-
grate everything that you find
there.
TAURUS (Apr. 21- may 21):
These simple pleasures ...
contact and openness between
human beings ... outshine any of

happiness that costs nothing and
is already with us in abundance.
GEMINI (May 22-June 21):
You may be asking yourself
'how come you didn't see it
before?' but of course, the land-
scape has changed dramatically
from the turbulence of recent
months. You've been through
the real upheaval but your ruler,
Mercury, is compelling you on
to new and exciting days ahead.
CANCER (June 22-July 22):
Our personal relationships pro-
vide the greatest window into
our own nature, holding up mir-
ror after mirror of our most won-
derful, painful, uncomfortable
and sublime qualities. If you can
look at yourself with love and
accept what you see there, it is
enough.
LEO (July 23-Aug 22):
New breakthroughs in unders-
tanding are possible as you find
yourselves able to communicate
more openly and more deeply
than before. Life is changing for
you, as you move towards a
brighter personal future.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 23):
A close or intimate relationship

your happy landscape. Throw
caution to the wind; the willin-
gness to express yourself openly
is the key to freedom.


LIBRA (Sept. 24 -Oct. 23):
Make the most of the bright,
communicative energy around
you at the moment to open the
doors you want to unlock. Your
mind is sharp and discerning so
trust your own judgement above
all else.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24- Nov. 22):
You have a deep appreciation of
the simple pleasures of life, as
you reach into the miracle of
human life and existence. Every
experience, no matter how ordi-
nary, shines with a new bright-
ness. Breakthroughs in
consciousness and spiritual
understanding are possible.
Relax into the flow and let it
happen.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23 -Dec. 21):
You are exploring new ways of
connecting with life; pushing
back your boundaries and fin-
ding new treasures. There is a
happy flow in all areas of life,
although you may be reflecting
on your relationships with parti-
cular friends or acquaintances.
CAPRICORN (Dec 22.- Jan. 20):
Your mind is bright and alive, as
you look at the world from every
angle. You want to share this
new perspective and your enthu-
siasm is contagious. Like mind-
ed friends are only too ready to
listen.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 21 -Feb. 19):
This is a lucky time where
money or investment is concer-
ned, particularly ventures that
rely on your mental agility and
negotiation skills. Friends can
open doors for you right now so
keep an open mind to their sug-
gestions.
PISCES (Feb. 20- March 20):
Your natural generosity and gre-
garious nature means that you
simply can't enjoy your own

Cetacean Week,

April 18-25
For the past three years, the Marine Park has
wanted to organize a project dedicated to
cetaceans, and especially-but not only- the
megaptera novaeangliae, or humpback whales that
are seen in the waters around the island from Janu-
ary through June each year. Not able to present the
entire research project they had in mind, they decid-
ed to go ahead with the awareness portion of the
event. The result is "Cetacean Week," presented in
collaboration with the association, Evasion Tropi-
cale, that studies and counts cetaceans and marine
turtles in the waters of Guadeloupe. Every morning
from April 18-25, the event includes sea excursions
aboard Evasion Tropicale's 50' sailboat, Tzigane IV,
which is '-ull11.il for the watching of marine mam-
mals: a large bridge, 360" view, an outlook, direc-
tional hydrophones, camera, and video camera.
These excursions are primarily for a group of junior
high school students selected via a questionnaire
that they answered in school, as well as the elemen-
tary school students who are the winners of a design
competition. A few places are reserved for the gen-
eral public and will be given to the lucky winners of
a raffle organized on Radio Saint Barth. The boat
will be open for visits on April 24 and 25, once
again primarily for students. In addition to the
excursions, there will be an exhibit that the marine
park has organized on the ground floor of the Capi-
tainerie. Photos, informational posters, films, a
hands-on workshop, skeletons... will all be part of
the exhibit, which will allow visitors to discover the
world of the cetacean, of which there are more than
20 species living in the waters of the Caribbean.
Finally, Pierre Henri Fontaine, a Quebecois cetacean
expert and author of the book, Whales of the North
Atlantic, Biology and Ecology, will present a con-
ference on a different theme every night at 6:00pm.


our humpback whales
were seen mid-morning
on Tuesday, near the
small island of Pain de Sucre,
near Gustavia. They were first
seen behind a cruise ship just
several meters from the coast
of Anse Gascon. The marine
park staff came out to observe
these large mammals that
migrate every year from cold
waters, where they eat, to
warmer waters where they
reproduce and give birth. Seen
from January through June,
their appearance hits a high
point during the months of
March and April. The hump-
back whale belongs to the fam-
ily of finback whales that can
reach 60 feet and 40 tons. They


are known for the mating songs
sung by the males and their
jumps in the air. The four
whales observed on Tuesday
remained for several hours,
making circles in the water
between Anse Gascon and Pain
de Sucre. The marine park has
issued a reminder that it can be
dangerous to approach a whale.
In order not to upset them, and
not put yourself in danger, the
marine park has noted that all
boats should not cut in front of
them as to cut them off, or be
too close behind them. The rec-
ommended procedure is to
slow down to three knots at
least 400 meters away from
them and not go any closer
than 150 meters.

St Barth Weekly n¡84 2 Twenty-eight identical boats set sail on Sunday, April 9th in the 8th edition of the Transat Ag2r, the transatlantic race whose finish line is in Saint Barth. With two people aboard each one, 27 of the Figaro Benetteau sailboats passed the qualification checkpoint by 4:00pm on Tuesday afternoon (French time). The duo aboard "Virbac-Paprec" (comprised of Frenchman Jean-Pierre Dick Ñ twice the first place winner of the Transat Jacques Vabre*and sixth in the last VendŽe Globe, an around the world race with no stops and no assistanceÑ and another experienced French sailor, Bruno Jourdren) were forced to abandon the race after they broke their forestay (the cable with connects the top of the mast to the front of the boat) off the coast of Finisterre. They were however able to avoid breaking the mast itself. But unable to make the necessary repairs, they motored into the Bay of Vigo, the largest port in Galicia, Spain, to find shelter. Asecond duo, that of Marine Chombart de Lauwe and Julien BrangŽ aboard "Esprit 93," had the same bad luck and experienced the same damage to their forestay which also broke off the coast of Finisterre, in high winds and high waves. The two sailors were not injured, and also managed to save their mast. They made it to the checkpoint in time on Tuesday, but also headed toward Vigo, after deciding to do "everything they could to set sail again." Tuesday afternoon, Charles Caudrelier and Nicolas BŽrenger aboard "Bostik" were still in the lead, even if the director of the race, Jean Maurel noted, "the positions are not official and very variable. The separations are very slightL: 20 boats within 30 miles. All it would take is a gybe after a change in wind direction to lose seven, eight, nine or even ten places." No matter what else happens, the debut of this Transat Ag2r will be marked by a second night of strong winds. Sailing with their spinnakers unfurled, the 28 boats in the Transat Ag2r sailed past Cape Finisterre in very challenging conditions: 35 knots of north-east wind (force 8)É fortunately they were not sailing against the wind, but the sea was rough and agitated, as is often the case in this spot feared by sailors. In fact, in a radio interview, Jean Maurel noted that, "many of the teams complained of some damage, from torn spinnakers that needed to be repaired as fast as possible to loose sheets and broken halyards." Things should improve as weather conditions are expected to improve later in the week. The sailboats left Concarneau on April 9 at 1:00pm and are expected in Saint Barth, the habitual arrival port, at the end of April. Each arrival is met out on the water by numerous race fans. And the main dock, reserved for the boats in the racing fleet, comes alive with various activities every day. *Also called "Route du CafŽ," the Transat Jacques Vabre is another important transatlantic race for teams of two from Le Havre (France) to Salvador de Bahia (Brazil) T ransat Ag2r Concarneau Saint Bar th "CALMAFTERTHESTORM" The duo aboard "Virbac-Paprec", Jean-Pierre Dick and Bruno Jourdren, were forced to abandon the race after they broke their forestay.

St Barth Weekly n¡84 3It's that time of year again, when the island of Saint Barth turns into a Mecca for Caribbean cinema. Founded in 1996, the Saint Barth Film Festival has a decidedly Caribbean beat. "We wanted to bring a different kind of film to Saint Barth," says Joshua Harrison, codirected of the festival. This means films made by filmmakers from throughout the Caribbean basin or about Caribbean themes. Over the past decade the festival has shown an eclectic mix of over 60 films from a range of Caribbean islands, including Cuba, Guadeloupe and Martinique, as well as Latin American countries that touch the Caribbean, including Guatemala and Colombia. This year we have three films from Cuba: Habana Blues, Suite Habana, and Viva Cuba, although once again we have been foiled by the attempt of bringing Cuban filmmakers to Saint Barth, as there are very few flights that do not transit via Miami or San Juan, where Cubans of course cannot alight. On the other hand, we have more guests that ever before, with a long list of filmmakers, actors, and even a leading musician, Dominik Coco, from Guadeloupe. Dominik Coco will be featured in a documentary about his career, a 45-minute film called 15 LannŽ Mizik (Fifteen Years of Music) by a very talented young filmmaker, also from Guadeloupe, Janluk Stanislas. Music is also the focus of Santo Domingo Blues, a documentary about bachata musicians by US director, Alex Wolfe. And this year's roster includes Pluie d'espoir (Rain of Hope) by Jaques Roc from Haiti. Another filmmaker from Guadeloupe, Tony CocoViloin, is back for the third consecutive year, with a new short film called Lettre ˆ Irne. This film was shot in Guadeloupe last February and two of the extras are Rosemond GrŽaux (also a festival organizer) and his sister Jeanne-Marie, who play WWI soldiers from the French West Indies (interestingly their paternal grandfather from Saint Barth fought for the French in WWIÉ). This is the first time that "actors" from Saint Barth appear in one of our invited films. There are a few other firsts this year: the first film by a Saint Barth-based filmmakerÑ Expedition Prototype by Cedric Robion, a film chronicle of the adventures of a group of sailors/artists from Saint Barth to Patagonia last year; and the first year we have added short films to almost every evening program. We will continue our films-in-theschools program, showing the students a film called Another World, by Steve Moreau, tracing the journey of two sailors who rowed their way across the Atlantic in a small boat. This is a perfect tie-in to the Ag2r, as each class will be following one of the boats in that transatlantic challenge which is scheduled to arrive in Saint Barth right on the heels of the festival. From April 25-April 30, every evening there will be a film screening at AJOE in Lorient, one of the principal sponsors of the festival. And every night there will be wonderful films to discover (two of them even have English sub-titles this year!), wonderful people to meet. Where else in the Caribbean can you find a cinema under the stars, with a projectionist from Denmark, and guests from throughout the West Indies, France, and the United States? All made possible by the municipality of Saint Barth, the DRAC in Guadeloupe (regional cultural affairs office), the Regional Council in Guadeloupe, AJOE, and the numerous businesses, hotels, restaurants, and individuals on the island that help us house and feed a troupe of filmmakers. It's a unique festival and we invite you to be part of the fun. See you at the movies! Ellen Lampert-Greaux co-director, St Barth Film Festival 11th Annual Saint Barth Film Festival, April 25-30, 2006 at AJOE

The boat belongs to Saint Barth resident Didier Troadec, who is also one of the captains of the SNSM rescue boat. He was on the boat alone and had gone fishing early that morning. At the moment of the incident, he was on the bridge of the boat an explosion, and then flames from the interior of the cabin, where he had just started to reheat his lunch, surprised him. Armed with a fire extinguisher, he tried unsuccessfully to limit the fire. The flames spread rapidly throughout the cabin, then to the rest of the boat. He just had time to send an SOS to the SNSM before he had to evacuate the boat, which was about to sink. Didier Troadec had to jump into the water to get to his life raft as the roof of the boat, which was also burning by then, blocked it. Since the SNSM rescue boat, the Contre-Amiral No‘l, out of service for the past two weeks, was not available, it took private individuals to come to the aid of the captain of the "Lutteur 2." FrŽdŽric and a crew member, aboard OrŽo, were the first to arrive and recover Didier Troadec. The firemen, and IngŽnu Magras, president of the rescue at sea station, also arrived aboard Megawatt, one of the boats belonging to Yannis Marine. The motorboat from the yacht, Reverie, also helped put out the fire, just before watching the boat sank. Didier Troadec was not injured but due to smoke inhalation, he was taken to the local hospital but was released during the afternoon. It seems as if an explosion in the boat's propane tank caused the explosion. Initiated by UNESCO in 1995, World Book Day marks its 11th anniversary on April 23, and will be celebrated for the first time in Saint Barth this year. Launched by a group of book lovers, and coordinated by Didier Bensa and Jean-Pierre Hennequet, the local event will take place on Sunday, April 23 from 9:00am to 1:00pm in front of the Wall House municipal museum. Various activities will be held to help promote the diffusion of books, and encourage everyone, and especially young people, to enjoy the pleasures of reading, and to salute the considerable contribution that authors make to the thought process and to universal culture. There will also be a book exchange, with books in French and in English, organized by Carol Ann Vangindertael (0690.57.75.37) and Marie-Blanche LŽdŽe (0590.27.74.19). The idea is simple: you bring your books on April 23 and tradeÑ or sellÑ them. If you would like to donate your books to the event, please call one of the organizers before April 23 so they can pick them up. The Barnes Bookstores and Funny Face will have stands with their special choice of books. Publisher CŽcile Lucot, who took over "Editions Latanier" last year, will present books from her catalogue, including the French-English "odes" to Saint Barth and Saint Martin by Stanislas Defize, simply called "History of Saint-Barth" and "History of Saint-Martin," that CŽcile recently re-published. Astand for children will include various activities including reading of stories, illustration of texts written by children, word games, and the discovery of books and writing. Painter Jean-Pierre Ballagny will demonstrate how to create the art for a cartoon. The public will be able to fill in the word bubblesÉ. The local theatre troupe, SB Artists, will participate as well with the reading of works by local authors who are also invited to be on hand to answer questions that the public might ask about the art of writing. Celebrate Book Day in Saint BarthÉ Sunday, April 23!

St Barth Weekly n¡84 12Four humpback whales were seen mid-morning on Tuesday, near the small island of Pain de Sucre, near Gustavia. They were first seen behind a cruise ship just several meters from the coast of Anse Gascon. The marine park staff came out to observe these large mammals that migrate every year from cold waters, where they eat, to warmer waters where they reproduce and give birth. Seen from January through June, their appearance hits a high point during the months of March and April. The humpback whale belongs to the family of finback whales that can reach 60 feet and 40 tons. They are known for the mating songs sung by the males and their jumps in the air. The four whales observed on Tuesday remained for several hours, making circles in the water between Anse Gascon and Pain de Sucre. The marine park has issued a reminder that it can be dangerous to approach a whale. In order not to upset them, and not put yourself in danger, the marine park has noted that all boats should not cut in front of them as to cut them off, or be too close behind them. The recommended procedure is to slow down to three knots at least 400 meters away from them and not go any closer than 150 meters. Cetacean Week, April 18 25 For the past three years, the Marine Park has wanted to organize a project dedicated to cetaceans, and especiallyÑbut not onlyÑ the megaptera novaeangliae, or humpback whales that are seen in the waters around the island from January through June each year. Not able to present the entire research project they had in mind, they decided to go ahead with the awareness portion of the event. The result is "Cetacean Week," presented in collaboration with the association, Evasion Tropicale, that studies and counts cetaceans and marine turtles in the waters of Guadeloupe. Every morning from April 18-25, the event includes sea excursions aboard Evasion Tropicale's 50'sailboat, Tzigane IV, which is outfitted for the watching of marine mammals: a large bridge, 360¡view, an outlook, directional hydrophones, camera, and video camera. These excursions are primarily for a group of junior high school students selected via a questionnaire that they answered in school, as well as the elementary school students who are the winners of a design competition. Afew places are reserved for the general public and will be given to the lucky winners of a raffle organized on Radio Saint Barth. The boat will be open for visits on April 24 and 25, once again primarily for students. In addition to the excursions, there will be an exhibit that the marine park has organized on the ground floor of the Capitainerie. Photos, informational posters, films, a hands-on workshop, skeletonsÉ will all be part of the exhibit, which will allow visitors to discover the world of the cetacean, of which there are more than 20 species living in the waters of the Caribbean. Finally, Pierre Henri Fontaine, a Quebecois cetacean expert and author of the book, Whales of the North Atlantic, Biology and Ecology, will present a conference on a different theme every night at 6:00pm.
