First Air Ouality Measurements:

The air in Gustavia is good,

but not quite as good as Pointe-a-Pitre


It is hard to draw conclusions from
the first air quality measurements
taken over the last three weeks by
the association Gwad'Air, hired to
test the quality of the air in Guade-
loupe. The measurements were taken
on the edge of the harbor near City
Hall and the air quality there was
slightly under that measured near the
Camot Junior High, right in the cen-
ter of Pointe-a-Pitre, in Guadeloupe.
The weekly average on the ATMO
index for the air measured in Saint
Barth is just above 3 -good-while
that of Pointe-a-Pitre is slightly under
that level. The cause for this is a con-
stantly high (yet not dangerous) level
of ozone, a gas which in the strato-
sphere protects the planet from harm-
ful UV rays, but when concentrated
in the troposphere (from 0 to 10 kilo-
meters), can cause ocular and respira-
tory problems. In Gustavia, during
the period of February 5-21, the con-
centration of ozone was between 30
to 45 pg/m3, while in Pointe-a-Pitre,
it was between 15 to 33 pg/m3 during
the same period. Paradoxically, this
strong level of ozone is usually the
sign of automobile pollution. Ozone
is a complex gas that forms during
the day by the combination of light
and nitrogen oxide, a gas found in the
exhaust fumes of cars, and which dis-
integrates at night in the presence of
the same nitrogen oxide. The problem


in Gustavia is that the air does not
have enough nitrogen oxide so the
level of ozone stays constant... but if
there isn't enough nitrogen oxide,
how does the ozone form in the first
place? Christelle Rippon, the director
of Gwad'Air, offers an explication
which was observed during an air
quality test in La D6sirade (an island
near Guadeloupe where automobile
traffic is light): "The analysis of the
trajectory of the gas indicates that it
comes form the North American con-
tinent. Ozone is a stable gas that can
travel a long tome without transform-
ing, and is carried by the wind." So it
could well be that the ozone found in
the air in Saint Barth is produced by
automobile traffic in North America
and Canada, and carried by the North
winds that traditionally blow at the
beginning of the year.

Are Yachts Causing
A Problem?
The concentration of ozone, which is


still far under the critical level of
180 ug/m3, is not the only problem
with the air in Gustavia. The first
measurements of the air quality also
revealed that there is an important
level of nitrogen monoxide at night
and on the weekends. This could be
attributed to the generators of the
motor yachts that run primarily at
night. The danger level for this has
not been set and there are no specific
regulations at the moment, nor is it
measured directly by the ATMO
index. The negative effects on one
health may be limited, but its capaci-
ty to transform into nitrogen diox-
ide-which is much more danger-
ous- is important and is part of the
measurements taken by Gwad'Air.

After The Port,
The Fire Station
Gwad'Air's measurement trailer has
been moved next to the fire station
in Saint Jean where it will stay for
the next three weeks. In addition,
earlier this week, 42 "passive luIck."
were attached to the electric poles
around the island where for 15 days
they will measure the level of nitro-
gen dioxide issued by the combus-
tion of automobile motors. A second
set of air quality measurements will
be taken next summer. After that,
Gwad'Air will make a full report on
the air quality in Saint Barth.

From 100,000 of these apes

THE END OF CARNIVAL!


Brightly colored Car-
nival costumes and
feathers gave way
to black and white garb on
Ash Wednesday, February
21, symbolizing the mourn-
ing of Carnival revelers as
the festivities come to an
end. The last event was the
burning of an effigy of
Vaval, the king of Carnival,


carried on his deathbed (as
shown in the photo) to his
final resting place on Shell
Beach. Carnival is over but
there is an epilogue yet to
come, on the evening that
marks the halfway point of
Lent, with one last parade
where everyone is dressed
in red and black.
Carnival began in early


January with a weekly
parade organized by the
association, La Pointe en
Mouvement, on Sunday
afternoons. A children's
parade on Friday, February
17 marked the start of East-
er vacation, followed by
the big parade on Mardi


Gras (Shrove Tuesday),
February 20, and the burn-
ing of Vaval the next day.
Every year, Carnival in
Saint Barth attracts a cer-
tain number of tourists,
almost as many as at New
Year's.

W ines from Ban-
dol* are at the
center of a new
initiative starting on March
6 at the Restaurant des
P6cheurs at the Sereno
hotel, where chef Jean-Luc
Grabowski has created a
special menu to be served
with these wines from the
south of France. White,
red, and ros6 wines from
the domain Bunan, produc-
er of the labels Moulin des
Costes and Chateau La
Rouvibre will be served
during this special event
organized in association
with Absolutely Wine,
located in Grand Fond,
which is the distributor for
these wines in Saint Barth.
In fact, the wine-maker
himself, Laurent Bunan,
will host a special tasting
session for his Provencal
wines from the Var-a

Opinion

"We're Not in Kansas Anymore"


As an American villa
owner on St. Barts
who comes down
every February, there's
always something about
this island that makes me
realize I'm "not in Kansas
anymore." Or anywhere
else in the States for that
matter. It's not the different
language or the different
winter climate. It's not the
airport landing (I'm way
over that). It's not even the
very large iguana that still
manages to scare the day-
lights out of me at my
house in Flamands.

No. It's other things that
make me realize St. Barts
is very different from what
I am used to back in Penn-
sylvania. It's just so, you
know, French here!

Let me try to explain what
I mean (at least a little bet-
ter) by offering a short list
of things we Americans get
frustrated over, laugh about
or scratch our heads in
wonder at on this wonder-
ful island, our favorite
place away from home:

) Video rentals are due
back in 1 or 2 days or 3
days or...

) The gas station is always
closed when you need gas
most...

) Children's Day you say?
In America, every day is
children's day...

) Size large still may be
too small, thank you very
much...

) Fresh local fish on
Wednesdays... "local"
means caught in France, of


course.

) Cruise ship in? Shops
may close. Translation:
good business sense is dif-
ferent here.

) "My French Fries are not
expensive (20 euros). He
has them at 25 euros over
there."
(Actual statement from the
owner of a very fine
restaurant)

) Hummers on these roads?
Hmm, they've got to be
kidding... no?

) Those stacks & stacks of
glossy St. Barts' magazines
published every year...
Such great media competi-
tion. Such a great load of
trash for the island to deal
with (we need to do much
more recycling here).

) There are enough watch-
es in shops around here to
decorate the "wrist" of
every man, woman, child,
dog & iguana (enough
said).

) The island banks think
our money is theirs...
(hence our French credit
cards don't always work
here when we need them).

) Screens really do keep
out mosquitoes... a good
idea where dengue fever is
concerned... so why aren't
the islanders at all interest-
ed in them?

) Garbage bags are called
"sac poubelle"... seems
even trash has a French
designer behind it.

Solar Catamaran Stops In St. Martin


Sailing from Basel toward
New York, the Sun 21
catamaran with a solar-
propelled engine arrived in
Saint Martin on Monday.
Our correspondent
Brigitte Delaitre talked
with the crew.

Enjoying its stay under the
West Indian sun, the Sun
21-as in 21st century-
represents the deep convic-
tions of two Swiss ecology-
minded activists, Martin
Vosseler (a medical doctor)
and Beat von Scarpatetti.
The Sun 21, which arrived
in Martinique on February
2, 2007, after 29 days at sea.
It is the first boat to cross
the Atlantic without sails or
fuel, but entirely by solar
power. Equipped with two
electric motors, 3500
pounds of batteries, and 200
square feet of solar panels,
the Sun 21 is propelled by
solar engery, at a cruising
speed of four to six knots,
depending on conditions at


sea. During the transatlantic
S" ..i.. .for example, when
navigation at night forced
the prototype boat to use its
batteries, the crew decided
to limit the number of
engine rotations by reducing
the speed to 4.5 knots. But
the goal was not to break


The sun 21 at the dock of M
any speed records. The goal
of the expedition was to
promote the protection of
the climate by the use of
renewable energy, and to
get the message across at
every port along the way,
via the press. After stops in
the Virgin Islands, the
Dominican Republc, the
Bahamas, and Fort Laud-
erdale, then taking the
inland waterways up the
East Coast, the boat is
expected in New York on


May 8, where it will b
comed by Iv
Bloomberg.
Martin Vosseler and
von Scarpatetti, the
neers who launched

car. How do they get
around? They use bicy-
cles-according to Martin
who has eight bikes and is
the founder of a "club with-
out cars" in Switzerland-
and public transportation.
Their houses use solar pan-
els for energy, their clothes
are made from natural
fibers, and their diet is
essentially vegetarian...
without genetically modi-
fied organisms (GMOs)!


"If you have an arterial
hemorrhage, you must stop
the hemorrhaging immedi-
S ately," says Martin Vosseler.
"It's the same thing with
changes to the climate.
There is global hemorrhag-
ing and if we don't stop it
the planet will become
inhabitable for everyone.
We have to stop doing
harmful things, and every-
one can do '!!!icli!lin on a
personal level. That's what
we are trying to prove with
this voyage. And not only is
e wel- 1I i. 'Ikini. but it also means
layor a better quality of life and
bciici health."
Beat The skipper of Sun 21,
pio- Michel Thonney, a sailor
d this since "forever," appreciates
n the the wonderful technical
lists. concepts and especially the
wns a lack of exhaust fumes, the


smell of fuel, and the noise
of motors-all of which
allows him to enjoy being
at sea even more. And he's
not the only one- they say
that the dolphins adore this
catamaran and accompa-
nied the boat for miles,
right in the middle of the
Atlantic.
Brigitte Delaitre

3,500 MILES ON
FOOT IN FIVE MONTHS

Physician Martin Vosse-
ler is the perfect exam-
ple of sustainable deve-
lopment. In 2004, at the
age of 55, he walked the
3000 miles that separate
Basel from Jerusalem,
to prove that it is possi-
ble to travel by other
means. This summer,
after arriving in New
York aboard Sun 21, he
plans to take the train
to Los Angeles then
walk back 3,500 miles to
Boston, in five months,
at a rate of 28 to 31
miles per day, at a speed
of approximately 4mph.
He predicts that four
pairs of sandals will be
necessary to walk across
the United States, from
west to east, on small
roads, by way of Ari-
zona, Colorado and
Kansas along the way. It
will be possible to follow
his progress at
www.martinvosseler.ch.
The idea to cross the
Atlantic with just solar
power is related to this
walking project, accor-
ding to Vosseler who
considers that "there is
a huge negative ecologi-
cal impact from airpla-
nes," but he didn't want
to try and row his way
across the Atlantic
Ocean.

2 2 St Barth Weekly n¡110 "... the food, especially the fish, is fresh and reliably excellent." Town & Country "The food is excellent, the ambiance ultra hip, and the decor out of paradise. No wonder that L'esprit is the restaurant on the island where everybody goes." Vogue Paris The "Hot Tables" CondŽ Nast TravelerL'ESPRIT SALINESRESTAURANTLUNCH & DINNER Tel: 05 90 52 46 10Near Saline Beach Open 7/7 It is hard to draw conclusions from the first air quality measurements taken over the last three weeks by the association Gwad'Air, hired to test the quality of the air in Guadeloupe. The measurements were taken on the edge of the harbor near City Hall and the air quality there was slightly under that measured near the Carnot Junior High, right in the center of Pointe-ˆ-Pitre, in Guadeloupe. The weekly average on the ATMO index for the air measured in Saint Barth is just above 3 ÑgoodÑwhile that of Pointe-ˆ-Pitre is slightly under that level. The cause for this is a constantly high (yet not dangerous) level of ozone, a gas which in the stratosphere protects the planet from harmful UVrays, but when concentrated in the troposphere (from 0 to 10 kilometers), can cause ocular and respiratory problems. In Gustavia, during the period of February 5-21, the concentration of ozone was between 30 to 45 µg/m3, while in Pointe-ˆ-Pitre, it was between 15 to 33 µg/m3 during the same period. Paradoxically, this strong level of ozone is usually the sign of automobile pollution. Ozone is a complex gas that forms during the day by the combination of light and nitrogen oxide, a gas found in the exhaust fumes of cars, and which disintegrates at night in the presence of the same nitrogen oxide. The problem in Gustavia is that the air does not have enough nitrogen oxide so the level of ozone stays constantÉ but if there isn't enough nitrogen oxide, how does the ozone form in the first place? Christelle Rippon, the director of Gwad'Air, offers an explication which was observed during an air quality test in La DŽsirade (an island near Guadeloupe where automobile traffic is light): "The analysis of the trajectory of the gas indicates that it comes form the North American continent. Ozone is a stable gas that can travel a long tome without transforming, and is carried by the wind." So it could well be that the ozone found in the air in Saint Barth is produced by automobile traffic in North America and Canada, and carried by the North winds that traditionally blow at the beginning of the year. Are Yachts Causing AProblem? The concentration of ozone, which is still far under the critical level of 180 ug/m3, is not the only problem with the air in Gustavia. The first measurements of the air quality also revealed that there is an important level of nitrogen monoxide at night and on the weekends. This could be attributed to the generators of the motor yachts that run primarily at night. The danger level for this has not been set and there are no specific regulations at the moment, nor is it measured directly by the ATMO index. The negative effects on one health may be limited, but its capacity to transform into nitrogen dioxideÑwhich is much more dangerousÑ is important and is part of the measurements taken by Gwad'Air. After The Port, The Fire Station Gwad'Air's measurement trailer has been moved next to the fire station in Saint Jean where it will stay for the next three weeks. In addition, earlier this week, 42 "passive tubes" were attached to the electric poles around the island where for 15 days they will measure the level of nitrogen dioxide issued by the combustion of automobile motors. Asecond set of air quality measurements will be taken next summer. After that, Gwad'Air will make a full report on the air quality in Saint Barth. First Air Quality Measur ements: The air in Gustavia is good, but not quite as good as Pointe-ˆ-Pitre

0 0 4 4St Barth Weekly n¡110 Brightly colored Carnival costumes and feathers gave way to black and white garb on Ash Wednesday, February 21, symbolizing the mourning of Carnival revelers as the festivities come to an end. The last event was the burning of an effigy of Vaval, the king of Carnival, carried on his deathbed (as shown in the photo) to his final resting place on Shell Beach. Carnival is over but there is an epilogue yet to come, on the evening that marks the halfway point of Lent, with one last parade where everyone is dressed in red and black. Carnival began in early January with a weekly parade organized by the association, La Pointe en Mouvement, on Sunday afternoons. Achildren's parade on Friday, February 17 marked the start of Easter vacation, followed by the big parade on Mardi Gras (Shrove Tuesday), February 20, and the burning of Vaval the next day. Every year, Carnival in Saint Barth attracts a certain number of tourists, almost as many as at New Year's. Born on Monday, February 26, 2007 at 9:40am at the Hospital de Bruyn, little Marion Guillemassy-Cazabonne is the first baby of Saint Barth's new Overseas Collectivity. After she was born, the baby and her mother were transferred to the hospital in Saint Martin where they were placed under medical surveillance. There is approximately one birth per year at the hospital in Saint Barth where the infrastructure does not exist for a maternity service. The year 2005 was an exception to the rule: two babies were born, TŽo on September 21 and Mel on November 8.

0 0 6 6St Barth Weekly n¡109 Wines from Bandol* are at the center of a new initiative starting on March 6 at the Restaurant des Pcheurs at the Sereno hotel, where chef Jean-Luc Grabowski has created a special menu to be served with these wines from the south of France. White, red, and rosŽ wines from the domain Bunan, producer of the labels Moulin des Costes and Ch‰teau La Rouvire will be served during this special event organized in association with Absolutely Wine, located in Grand Fond, which is the distributor for these wines in Saint Barth. In fact, the wine-maker himself, Laurent Bunan, will host a special tasting session for his Provencal wines from the VarÑa French departmentÑfor professionals only on the morning of Tuesday, March 6 at 11am at the Sereno. *Wines From Bandol The appellation "Wines From Bandol" includes 53 independent vineyards based in and around Bandol, a small Provencal village located between Marseille and Toulon. Its productionÑrosŽ, white, and redÑis among the best from the south of France, and its rosŽ is considered the best in all of France. It was the Phoenicians, in 500 BC, who brought vines and wine-making culture to the Bandol region, where the vineyards still climb up magnificent terraces on the hillsides. As an American villa owner on St. Barts who comes down every February, there's always something about this island that makes me realize I'm "not in Kansas anymore." Or anywhere else in the States for that matter. It's not the different language or the different winter climate. It's not the airport landing (I'm way over that). It's not even the very large iguana that still manages to scare the daylights out of me at my house in Flamands. No. It's other things that make me realize St. Barts is very different from what I am used to back in Pennsylvania. It's just so, you know, French here! Let me try to explain what I mean (at least a little better) by offering a short list of things we Americans get frustrated over, laugh about or scratch our heads in wonder at on this wonderful island, our favorite place away from home: Video rentals are due back in 1 or 2 days or 3 days orÉ The gas station is always closed when you need gas mostÉ Children's Day you say? In America, every day is children's dayÉ Size large still may be too small, thank you very muchÉ Fresh local fish on WednesdaysÉ "local" means caught in France, of course. Cruise ship in? Shops may close. Translation: good business sense is different here. "My French Fries are not expensive (20 euros). He has them at 25 euros over there." (Actual statement from the owner of a very fine restaurant) Hummers on these roads? Hmm, they've got to be kiddingÉ no? Those stacks & stacks of glossy St. Barts'magazines published every yearÉ Such great media competition. Such a great load of trash for the island to deal with (we need to do much more recycling here). There are enough watches in shops around here to decorate the "wrist" of every man, woman, child, dog & iguana (enough said). The island banks think our money is theirsÉ (hence our French credit cards don't always work here when we need them). Screens really do keep out mosquitoesÉ a good idea where dengue fever is concernedÉ so why aren't the islanders at all interested in them? Garbage bags are called "sac poubelle"É seems even trash has a French designer behind it.

0 0 8 8St Barth Weekly n¡110Sailing from Basel toward New York, the Sun 21 catamaran with a solarpropelled engine arrived in Saint Martin on Monday. Our correspondent Brigitte Delaitre talked with the crew. Enjoying its stay under the West Indian sun, the Sun 21Ñas in 21st centuryÑ represents the deep convictions of two Swiss ecologyminded activists, Martin Vosseler (a medical doctor) and Beat von Scarpatetti. The Sun 21, which arrived in Martinique on February 2, 2007, after 29 days at sea. It is the first boat to cross the Atlantic without sails or fuel, but entirely by solar power. Equipped with two electric motors, 3500 pounds of batteries, and 200 square feet of solar panels, the Sun 21 is propelled by solar engery, at a cruising speed of four to six knots, depending on conditions at sea. During the transatlantic crossing, for example, when navigation at night forced the prototype boat to use its batteries, the crew decided to limit the number of engine rotations by reducing the speed to 4.5 knots. But the goal was not to break any speed records. The goal of the expedition was to promote the protection of the climate by the use of renewable energy, and to get the message across at every port along the way, via the press. After stops in the Virgin Islands, the Dominican Republc, the Bahamas, and Fort Lauderdale, then taking the inland waterways up the East Coast, the boat is expected in New York on May 8, where it will be welcomed by Mayor Bloomberg. Martin Vosseler and Beat von Scarpatetti, the pioneers who launched this project, are dyed in the wool environmentalists. Neither one of them owns a car. How do they get around? They use bicyclesÑaccording to Martin who has eight bikes and is the founder of a "club without cars" in SwitzerlandÑ and public transportation. Their houses use solar panels for energy, their clothes are made from natural fibers, and their diet is essentially vegetarianÉ without genetically modified organisms (GMOs)! "If you have an arterial hemorrhage, you must stop the hemorrhaging immediately," says Martin Vosseler. "It's the same thing with changes to the climate. There is global hemorrhaging and if we don't stop it the planet will become inhabitable for everyone. We have to stop doing harmful things, and everyone can do something on a personal level. That's what we are trying to prove with this voyage. And not only is it working, but it also means a better quality of life and better health." The skipper of Sun 21, Michel Thonney, a sailor since "forever," appreciates the wonderful technical concepts and especially the lack of exhaust fumes, the smell of fuel, and the noise of motorsÑall of which allows him to enjoy being at sea even more. And he's not the only oneÑ they say that the dolphins adore this catamaran and accompanied the boat for miles, right in the middle of the Atlantic. Brigitte Dela”tre Solar Catamaran Stops In St. Martin The Sun 21 at the dock of Marina Royale in Saint Martin The port-side electric motorÑno fuel smells. 3,500 MILESONFOOTINFIVEMONTHSPhysician Martin Vosseler is the perfect example of sustainable development. In 2004, at the age of 55, he walked the 3000 miles that separate Basel from Jerusalem, to prove that it is possible to travel by other means. This summer, after arriving in New York aboard Sun 21, he plans to take the train to Los Angeles then walk back 3,500 miles to Boston, in five months, at a rate of 28 to 31 miles per day, at a speed of approximately 4mph. He predicts that four pairs of sandals will be necessary to walk across the United States, from west to east, on small roads, by way of Arizona, Colorado and Kansas along the way. It will be possible to follow his progress at www.martinvosseler.ch. The idea to cross the Atlantic with just solar power is related to this walking project, according to Vosseler who considers that "there is a huge negative ecological impact from airplanes," but he didn't want to try and row his way across the Atlantic Ocean.
