Why The Bucket

Is Important

For The Island


ften criticized for
being a closed, or
private, event in
many eyes, the Saint Barth
Bucket-celebrating its
13th edition March 27-30,
2008-is a major event for
the island. Unquestionably,
it is an event with major
economic impact, and it
communicates the image of
luxury and excellence that
is important for the island as
a tourist destination. In the
outside world, the Bucket is
considered one of most
high-quality nautical events
of the year, yet ironically it
is not really understood on
the island. To get a better
idea of its importance, we
met with Melanie Smith,
the local organizer of the
Bucket, to go behind the
scenes of the event. An
event unique unto itself!


"There will finally be 29
boats on the starting line for
this 13th edition," explains
Smith. "There were origi-
nally more that were inter-
ested but we had to open a
waiting list in order to
respect the limit of 30 boats
that was established during
the 10th edition. In the end
there were some cancella-
tions so the final fleet has
29 boats. We estimate that
there are 800 people who
come to the island especial-
ly for the Bucket. There are
crew members that even
come from New Zealand, as
well as owners of the best
boatyards specializing in
large sailing yachts who
come as sponsors of the


event. There are journalists
and photographers who
cover the event for the
biggest sailing magazines,
as well as nautical architects
including those for the Mal-
tese Falcon, Athena, Rebec-
ca, Perseus, Ranger, and
others. There are the owners
of the largest nautical equip-
ment companies that serve
the yacht industry, as well
as insurers and financiers.
They number at least 800
without counting those who
schedule their vacations or
bring their boats in order to
watch th magnificent spec-
tacle offered by these giants
of the sea."



"The Collectivity of Saint
Barth is an important part-
ner for this event. It pro-
vides the services of the
port and all of the necessary
support to make such a
large event possible. But in
contrast to the Transat Ag2r,
which receives 100,000
euros from the Collectivity,
or the New Year's Eve
Regatta, where the Collec-
tivity is responsible for the
awards ceremony and
champagne toast, the Buck-
et is self-financing. It does
not get, or ask for, any
donations. The organizers
handle the overall costs of
the race, from the installa-
tion of the tents to the petit-
fours, by way of various
events, and the security
services needed in order to
host this kind of boats and
their passengers.
The boats that participate
pay, in addition to other


L*a

"u- i-'


fees, the cost of docking at
the main quay for four days
or for anchoring in the har-
bor for those boats too large
to pull up to the dock. They
do not have special or pref-
erential tariffs, even though
the event III L additional
boats. In other words: the
Saint Barth Bucket is entire-
ly self-financed, supported
by the organizers, the spon-
sors, and the participants,"
explains Smith.


GCenirates

"The organizers like Saint-
Barth, its quality of life, and
are perfectly aware that the
event must have a major
economic effect on the
island. As far as that goes, if
one believes the members
of the hotel or restaurant
association, the Saint Barth
Bucket is the event that gen-
erates the most income. The
organizers of the Bucket
alone inject several hundred
million euros into the local
economy in terms of suppli-
ers, caterers, and services
required for the organiza-
tion of the event. Several


hundred hotel rooms and
villas are rented in order to
house all the participants
and their friends and fami-
lies. The official social
events for the Bucket are
programmed to end no later
that 9pm so that the 800
people of the Bucket can
have dinner in various
restaurants, and go to the
bars and nightclubs on the
island."

A ( 'cta
"Every year the organizers
donate between 3,000 and
7,000 euros to the Saint
Barth Yacht Club to help the
development of sailing in
Saint B.! ilicii ) This year,
they will also make a dona-
tion to the SNSM rescue
station, whose new boat
will provide safety services
during the Bucket. In col-
laboration with other part-
ners, they will also organize
a collection of funds from
the participants of the Buck-
et. These monies will be
donated to FEMUR, Saint
Barth's Foundation for
Emergency Medical Equip-
ment, which is marking its
25th anniversary in 2008."

DJRavin VS Carlos Campos. Buddha-bar VS Barrio Latino

Two Turntable Stars

in Saint Barth


ou don't have to be club
addicts to have heard of the
two star DJs who were at the
turntables on Friday night, March 14,
at the Yacht Club and again on Sun-
day, March 15 at the Manapany
brunch. The first is DJ Ravin, resident
DJ at the Buddha-bar, and creator of
five of the 10 Buddha-bar compila-
tion CDs, of which the most recent,
Buddha-bar X, came out on February
18. The second DJ is Carlos Campos,
resident DJ at Barrio Latino, who is


preparing his ninth compilation for
this Parisian temple of Latino music.
Carole Gruson and the Manapany
organized this exceptional event, in
collaboration with Segeco. Yet it is
Jacques Dumas who began the trend
of bringing the hottest DJs from the
Paris scene, the world reference for
this art.
Part of the Maurice family and
brought up in the Hindu tradition, 41
year-old DJ Ravin has mixed Indian
sounds and mantras into the 14 com-
pilations he has done to date. Living
in France since he was a teenager, he
first started mixing on the turntables
at Buddha-bar in 1997, where he is
currently the resident DJ. After Bud-
dha-bar X, a blend of world and elec-
tronic music, he plans to bring out
three new albums in 2008: in April


the double CD, Clubbing In Paris,
will be followed by volume 4 of Sid-
dhartha: Spirit of Buddha-bar, and
his first personal album in the
months to come.
Carlos Campos is originally from
Chile. A hip-hop and street dancer,
as well as choreographer, and sound
engineer, this multi-faceted artist
owes his international reputation to
the hit "Ritmo de la Noche." The
first resident DJ Barrio Latino in
1999, Carlos has made all the com-
pilation CDs for the club, and the
most recent, his ninth, will be
released sometime in 2008. This is
the third time he has come to Saint
Barth at the invitation of Jacques
Dumas, who has invited both Com-
pas and Ravin back for a "big mix"
in November at Thanksgiving time.

"...We could as
well be in Paris, A
New York, or
London, but we
prefer to be
here!" After
more than
thirty years tra-
velling all around Asia, and the
world, Jean-Pierre Hennequet has
opened his second "GalerieAsie"
in Gustavia, St-Barths, at the back
of the harbour. His first one was
opened on Paris'left bank in the
mid-seventies, after he visited
China as early as 1972.
In Galerie Asie, some visitors feel


p


like being in a
Museum, disco-
vering a very
personal and
eclectic choice,
ranging from
Papua New
Guinea to
Tibetan religious pieces. Jean-
Pierre also shows an impressive
selection of Khmer sand-stone
sculptures, and many smaller
objects from almost every single
asian country. As well as a few truly
exceptional "Museum pieces",
including some from...Africa!

L'Alva, The Last European Cargo Schooner


converted into a "school," tak-
ing students from the Dan-
deryd Maritime Center near
Stockholm in Sweden on transatlantic
voyages, Alva has a colorful history.
In days of yore, this schooner with
three masts-which sailed into Saint
Barth from March 11-13- was a car-
go ship transporting freight through-
out the Baltic Sea and Northern
Atlantic. It was the last sailing cargo
ship in Europe to stop working..... in
1990! After 50 years of loyal service,
Alva was converted into a charter
boat, with excursions through the
more than 2,400 isalnds in the archi-
pelago of Stockholm. It has been
completely remodeled with 25' added
to its hull, with a total of 15 cabins
(plus those for the crew), and on the
upper deck, an immense salon, dining
room and kitchen that were added to
comfortably serve the passengers.
The masts were shortened to 18' to
pass under bridges, and the sails are
smaller, but still measure 500 square
yards. In 2003, Alva joined the fleet
at the maritime center in Danderyd
and has since been used for various
length educational trips. All of the
students at this private maritime high
school-where a love of the sea is a
must-spend at least two months
aboard Alva as crew, as part of their
three-year curriculum. In addition to
their daily courses, they take on all
the jobs of a crewmember, from
swabbing the deck to KP duty.
The 32 students in the marine biology


department (which is just one of sev-
eral areas of study) who were aboard
during the visit to Saint Barth, arrived
in Sint Maarten on Saturday, March
8. They then sailed to Saint Barth, the
first stop on their voyage. Thanks to
ASBAS (Saint Barth Friends of Swe-
den Association) they were able to
observe the behavior of local fauna in
the waves off the coast of Grand
Fond. On Thursday they headed to
Barbuda, and planned to go on to vis-
it the volcanic eruption zone open to
the public in Montserrat before going
to Guadeloupe, Nevis, and Saint
Eustatius, before returning to St. Mar-
tin for final provisioning before their
transatlantic trip to Europe. Two final
stops were scheduled in the Azores:
Faial Island and Sao Miguel, before
arriving at the final destination of
their six week journey- they should
land in (l! I'ili'u! France on May


20. There, the students from the
'Communications and leadership'
section at Danderyd pick up the relay
for the last next transatlantic chapter
in the story of Alva, a boat that has
been plying the seas since 1939.

A DESCENDANT OF GOVERNOR
STACKELBERG ABOARD
Kristina is 18 years old. In prepa-
ring for her study trip aboard Alva,
she discovered she was connected
to Bernd Robert Gustaf Stackel-
berg (1784-1845). Even if she does
not yet know the exact connection,
Kristina does know that she is a
direct descendant of the Swedish
governor in Saint Barth from 1812
to 1816. Her family is researched its
genealogy in order to get more
details about this branch of their
family tree.

t was very welcome
news! Thursday
evening, during a
meeting of the island's ter-
ritorial council, the presi-
dent of the COM
announced that the school
board plans to add a 10th
grade class in Saint Barth
next fall. Before the
assembly, Bruno Magras
read a letter from Alain
Miossec and indicated
that the COM would be
interested in this eventual-
ity. The academic director
plans to visit the island on
April 16 in order to make
it official and work out the
details of adding a new


grade and class to the cur-
riculum at the Mireille
Choisy junior high school.
The class should hold 30
students, allowing almost
all of those currently in
the 9th grade to continue
if they so desire.
The idea to add this class
is not a new one: the for-
mer academic director,
Jean-Pierre Chardon, had
brought it up in 2003, yet
discussion was tabled at
that time and was just
recently put back on the
front burner. Is this a first
step toward a full high
school in Saint Barth?
One can always hope.....

From March 21-27

Illya Kagan's Paintir

at Porta 34 Gallery
i.'ii March 21-27, the
q...rk of Illya Kagan
1.ii be seen in an
exhibit of his paintings of
Saint Barth at Porta 34
Gallery in Gustavia. Based
in Nantucket, this painter
(with roots in the Ukraine)
has been coming to Saint-
Barth for over 35 years,
since he was just six years
old. The oil-on-linen canvas-
es in the exhibit show the
island from various vantage
points. One thing that is spe-
cial about these paintings is
the wonderful use light- or
lack thereof for those paint-
ed after the sun has set- that
emanates from them. There
is nothing surprising about
that; when asked what
inspired him in Saint Barth,
Kagan answered, "the varia-
tions in the light, and the
colors of the water. Com-
pared to the monochromatic
green, or white in the winter,
of Nantucket, to come here,
even for a visiting painter
like myself, is like a new
awakening."


of Saint Barth


Between his visits to Saint
Barth, Illya Kagan splits his
time between his home base
in Nantucket, and all the
"great 1p.'i'" in the world
where he is inspired to paint.
His work is "alive" as he
always works "in the fresh
air," looking at the land-
scape he is painting. He esti-
mates he has done 75 paint-
ings here to date. He has
also painted extensively in
Nantucket, New York,
Aspen, Tuscany, and the
South of France, where he
followed the trail of the
great Fauvist painters, Van
Gogh and Cezanne, whose
strong influence can be felt
in Kagan's work. Vision of
the Island is Kagan's sev-
enth exhibit in Saint Barth,
with an opening reception
on Friday, March 21 from
6:00-9:00pm.

Illya Kagan, March 21-27,
Porta 34, Gustavia
The exhibit ill be open
daily from 10am-12pm
and 5-9pm

0 0 2 2St Barth Weekly n¡144Since late Tuesday afternoon, the Northern Islands were on a red alert (the highest level alert) due to the passage of strong swells from the north generated by a strong tropical storm evolving 2,500 kilomoeters north of the Lesser Antilles. The alert was in response to larger swells than traditional, but also due to the possible high seas during Easter week when the local population traditionally camps out on the island's beaches with their families and friends. The high alert should be removed on Friday, March 21, as the high seas return to normal by the beginning of next week. As expected, the swells hit the shores during the night of Tuesday to Wednesday, with the largest waves on the more exposed Northern coastline. On Wednesday, on the beach in Public, campers were able to create levees in the sand to protect their campsites but weren't sure if that would suffice to hold back big waves if they arrived. In Saint Jean, a section of the deck at Nikki Beach was torn off due to the force of the waves, and the beach from Eden Rock to the airport looked more like a beach in Brittany with waves breaking on the rocks. But what called the most attention was the big wave hitting the port of Gustavia, near the Presqu'”le Hotel. Late Wednesday morning when we went to press, the weather forecast was for strengthening of the swells, with waves as high as 15 feet, during the night from Wednesday to Thursday. Exceptional MeasuresAn exceptional phenomenon: exceptional measures. As of Tuesday afternoon, swimming as well as all other nautical activities were forbidden. The port of Gustavia was closed to all navigation as of Wednesday at noon. Before closing, all of the motor yachts and sailboats at any of the four docks all moved out to anchor in the harbor to surer moorings. Inter-island ferries were suspended when the port closed. At the same time, the island's water plant closed its doors as well, and the intake ducts from the ocean were closed to avoid infiltration of sand into the system. Everything will reopen once the swells have subsided, but in the meantime the island's surfers are making the best of this exceptional situation. W eather High Seas Should Calm By Weekend

0 0 4 4St Barth Weekly n¡144Often criticized for being a closed, or private, event in many eyes, the Saint Barth BucketÑcelebrating its 13th edition March 27-30, 2008Ñis a major event for the island. Unquestionably, it is an event with major economic impact, and it communicates the image of luxury and excellence that is important for the island as a tourist destination. In the outside world, the Bucket is considered one of most high-quality nautical events of the year, yet ironically it is not really understood on the island. To get a better idea of its importance, we met with Melanie Smith, the local organizer of the Bucket, to go behind the scenes of the event. An event unique unto itself!Size Of The Fleet"There will finally be 29 boats on the starting line for this 13th edition," explains Smith. "There were originally more that were interested but we had to open a waiting list in order to respect the limit of 30 boats that was established during the 10th edition. In the end there were some cancellations so the final fleet has 29 boats. We estimate that there are 800 people who come to the island especially for the Bucket. There are crew members that even come from New Zealand, as well as owners of the best boatyards specializing in large sailing yachts who come as sponsors of the event. There are journalists and photographers who cover the event for the biggest sailing magazines, as well as nautical architects including those for the Maltese Falcon, Athena, Rebecca, Perseus, Ranger, and others. There are the owners of the largest nautical equipment companies that serve the yacht industry, as well as insurers and financiers. They number at least 800 without counting those who schedule their vacations or bring their boats in order to watch th magnificent spectacle offered by these giants of the sea." An Autonomous Regatta"The Collectivity of Saint Barth is an important partner for this event. It provides the services of the port and all of the necessary support to make such a large event possible. But in contrast to the Transat Ag2r, which receives 100,000 euros from the Collectivity, or the New Year's Eve Regatta, where the Collectivity is responsible for the awards ceremony and champagne toast, the Bucket is self-financing. It does not get, or ask for, any donations. The organizers handle the overall costs of the race, from the installation of the tents to the petitfours, by way of various events, and the security services needed in order to host this kind of boats and their passengers. The boats that participate pay, in addition to other fees, the cost of docking at the main quay for four days or for anchoring in the harbor for those boats too large to pull up to the dock. They do not have special or preferential tariffs, even though the event attracts additional boats. In other words: the Saint Barth Bucket is entirely self-financed, supported by the organizers, the sponsors, and the participants," explains Smith.The Event That Generates The Largest Economic Impact"The organizers like SaintBarth, its quality of life, and are perfectly aware that the event must have a major economic effect on the island. As far as that goes, if one believes the members of the hotel or restaurant association, the Saint Barth Bucket is the event that generates the most income. The organizers of the Bucket alone inject several hundred million euros into the local economy in terms of suppliers, caterers, and services required for the organization of the event. Several hundred hotel rooms and villas are rented in order to house all the participants and their friends and families. The official social events for the Bucket are programmed to end no later that 9pm so that the 800 people of the Bucket can have dinner in various restaurants, and go to the bars and nightclubs on the island." ACharitable Regatta "Every year the organizers donate between 3,000 and 7,000 euros to the Saint Barth Yacht Club to help the development of sailing in Saint BarthŽlemy. This year, they will also make a donation to the SNSM rescue station, whose new boat will provide safety services during the Bucket. In collaboration with other partners, they will also organize a collection of funds from the participants of the Bucket. These monies will be donated to FEMUR, Saint Barth's Foundation for Emergency Medical Equipment, which is marking its 25th anniversary in 2008."Why The Bucket Is Important For The Island

0 0 6 6St Barth Weekly n¡144 You don't have to be club addicts to have heard of the two star DJs who were at the turntables on Friday night, March 14, at the Yacht Club and again on Sunday, March 15 at the Manapany brunch. The first is DJ Ravin, resident DJ at the Buddha-bar, and creator of five of the 10 Buddha-bar compilation CDs, of which the most recent, Buddha-bar X, came out on February 18. The second DJ is Carlos Campos, resident DJ at Barrio Latino, who is preparing his ninth compilation for this Parisian temple of Latino music. Carole Gruson and the Manapany organized this exceptional event, in collaboration with Segeco. Yet it is Jacques Dumas who began the trend of bringing the hottest DJs from the Paris scene, the world reference for this art. Part of the Maurice family and brought up in the Hindu tradition, 41 year-old DJ Ravin has mixed Indian sounds and mantras into the 14 compilations he has done to date. Living in France since he was a teenager, he first started mixing on the turntables at Buddha-bar in 1997, where he is currently the resident DJ. After Buddha-bar X, a blend of world and electronic music, he plans to bring out three new albums in 2008: in April the double CD, Clubbing In Paris, will be followed by volume 4 of Siddhartha: Spirit of Buddha-bar, and his first personal album in the months to come. Carlos Campos is originally from Chile. Ahip-hop and street dancer, as well as choreographer, and sound engineer, this multi-faceted artist owes his international reputation to the hit "Ritmo de la Noche." The first resident DJ Barrio Latino in 1999, Carlos has made all the compilation CDs for the club, and the most recent, his ninth, will be released sometime in 2008. This is the third time he has come to Saint Barth at the invitation of Jacques Dumas, who has invited both Compas and Ravin back for a "big mix" in November at Thanksgiving time.

0 0 8 8St Barth Weekly n¡144 Converted into a "school," taking students from the Danderyd Maritime Center near Stockholm in Sweden on transatlantic voyages, Alva has a colorful history. In days of yore, this schooner with three mastsÑwhich sailed into Saint Barth from March 11-13Ñ was a cargo ship transporting freight throughout the Baltic Sea and Northern Atlantic. It was the last sailing cargo ship in Europe to stop working..... in 1990! After 50 years of loyal service, Alva was converted into a charter boat, with excursions through the more than 2,400 isalnds in the archipelago of Stockholm. It has been completely remodeled with 25'added to its hull, with a total of 15 cabins (plus those for the crew), and on the upper deck, an immense salon, dining room and kitchen that were added to comfortably serve the passengers. The masts were shortened to 18'to pass under bridges, and the sails are smaller, but still measure 500 square yards. In 2003, Alva joined the fleet at the maritime center in Danderyd and has since been used for various length educational trips. All of the students at this private maritime high schoolÑwhere a love of the sea is a mustÑspend at least two months aboard Alva as crew, as part of their three-year curriculum. In addition to their daily courses, they take on all the jobs of a crewmember, from swabbing the deck to KPduty. The 32 students in the marine biology department (which is just one of several areas of study) who were aboard during the visit to Saint Barth, arrived in Sint Maarten on Saturday, March 8. They then sailed to Saint Barth, the first stop on their voyage. Thanks to ASBAS (Saint Barth Friends of Sweden Association) they were able to observe the behavior of local fauna in the waves off the coast of Grand Fond. On Thursday they headed to Barbuda, and planned to go on to visit the volcanic eruption zone open to the public in Montserrat before going to Guadeloupe, Nevis, and Saint Eustatius, before returning to St. Martin for final provisioning before their transatlantic trip to Europe. Two final stops were scheduled in the Azores: Faial Island and Sao Miguel, before arriving at the final destination of their six week journeyÑ they should land in Cherbourg, France on May 20. There, the students from the ÔCommunications and leadership' section at Danderyd pick up the relay for the last next transatlantic chapter in the story of Alva, a boat that has been plying the seas since 1939. L'Alva, The Last European Cargo Schooner A DESCENDANTOFGOVERNORSTACKELBERGABOARDKristina is 18 years old. In preparing for her study trip aboard Alva, she discovered she was connected to Bernd Robert Gustaf Stackelberg (1784-1845). Even if she does not yet know the exact connection, Kristina does know that she is a direct descendant of the Swedish governor in Saint Barth from 1812 to 1816. Her family is researched its genealogy in order to get more details about this branch of their family tree.

1 1 2 2St Barth Weekly n¡144From March 21-27, the work of Illya Kagan can be seen in an exhibit of his paintings of Saint Barth at Porta 34 Gallery in Gustavia. Based in Nantucket, this painter (with roots in the Ukraine) has been coming to SaintBarth for over 35 years, since he was just six years old. The oil-on-linen canvases in the exhibit show the island from various vantage points. One thing that is special about these paintings is the wonderful use lightÑ or lack thereof for those painted after the sun has setÐ that emanates from them. There is nothing surprising about that; when asked what inspired him in Saint Barth, Kagan answered, "the variations in the light, and the colors of the water. Compared to the monochromatic green, or white in the winter, of Nantucket, to come here, even for a visiting painter like myself, is like a new awakening." Between his visits to Saint Barth, Illya Kagan splits his time between his home base in Nantucket, and all the "great spots" in the world where he is inspired to paint. His work is "alive" as he always works "in the fresh air," looking at the landscape he is painting. He estimates he has done 75 paintings here to date. He has also painted extensively in Nantucket, New York, Aspen, Tuscany, and the South of France, where he followed the trail of the great Fauvist painters, Van Gogh and Cezanne, whose strong influence can be felt in Kagan's work. Vision of the Island is Kagan's seventh exhibit in Saint Barth, with an opening reception on Friday, March 21 from 6:00-9:00pm. Illya Kagan, March 21-27, Porta 34, Gustavia The exhibit will be open daily from 10am-12pm and 5-9pm Fr om Mar ch 21-27 Illya Kagan's Paintings of Saint Barth at Porta 34 GalleryIt was very welcome news! Thursday evening, during a meeting of the island's territorial council, the president of the COM announced that the school board plans to add a 10th grade class in Saint Barth next fall. Before the assembly, Bruno Magras read a letter from Alain Miossec , and indicated that the COM would be interested in this eventuality. The academic director plans to visit the island on April 16 in order to make it official and work out the details of adding a new grade and class to the curriculum at the Mireille Choisy junior high school. The class should hold 30 students, allowing almost all of those currently in the 9th grade to continue if they so desire. The idea to add this class is not a new one: the former academic director, Jean-Pierre Chardon, had brought it up in 2003, yet discussion was tabled at that time and was just recently put back on the front burner. Is this a first step toward a full high school in Saint Barth? One can always hope..... 10th Grade Class To Open in Saint Barth In The Fall Stay in touch WHEREVER YOU ARE EVERY FRIDAY ATwww.stbarthweekly.com
