St. Barth Bucket 2008:

Windrose Is The Winner


he 13th annual edition of the
Saint Barth Bucket
(WWX r. ii -'.p ,iI'Itikcl 0', ,'N.I )
arths) took place on Friday, Saturday,
and Sunday, March 28, 29, and 30,
with the 152' Holland Jachtbouw
yacht, Windrose, taking top honors.
Windrose also won the third day's
around-the-island race with the lead-
ing time of 2 hours, one minute and
nine seconds.
This year's Bucket was a true com-
ing-of-age for the regatta, which was
launched in 1996 as a Caribbean race
for owners and skippers of sailboats
over 100', many of whom already
sailed in the original summertime
Nantucket Bucket, which has now
shifted to Newport, R.I. where it is
held every July.
A fleet of 28 boats took part, ranging
from the smallest, Donald Tofias' 76'
W-Class Wild Horses to the 163'
Perini Navi yacht, Perseus, as the
largest entry. Three additional Pemini
Navi boats included Andromeda Le
Dea at 154', Antara at 153', and
Helios at 148'. Awarded for the best
performance by one of their yachts in
the Bucket, the Perini Navi Cup was
presented by Guila Perini to Antara.
The entire fleet is divided into two
classes, Les Grands Dames de la Mer,
won by Windrose, and Les Gazelles,
won by Rebecca, the second place
overall winner.
After a skipper's meeting on Thursday,
March 27 where the rules of the race




-


are explained, the boats were ready for
the first regatta, a counter-clockwise
tour around the island on Friday,
March 28, with Gliss, a 105' Royal
Huisman yacht taking first place. Elise
Huisman was on hand for the Bucket,
presenting the Walter Huisman Spirit
of the Bucket Award (in memory of
her father who she referred to as "a
great boat builder and lover of sail-
ing") to the 148' Baltic yacht, Visione,
since her father loved dogs, and
Visione often sails with two dogs
aboard (not to mention its sleek lines
and zippy performance...).
Day two, referred to as the "wiggly
course", saw the fleet navigate
around the small islands to the north
of Saint Barth in an Olympic triangle.
im


The winner: Sam Byrne's 125' Free-
dom of Flight, sailing well with 25
knots of wind providing some chal-
lenging moments.
Day three was a glorious sunny day
with winds close to 20 knots and
some terrific sailing. The boats are
rated for the Bucket by boat designer
Jim Teeters, who jokingly says it is
done by "black magic and snake oil,"
but who closely studies the design
and performance capability of each
boat, rating them on their race poten-
tial under maximal conditions. Day
three proved his technique, as at least
10 boats finished within 3 minutes
and seven seconds of each other, pro-
viding a spectacular finish with some
pretty fast maneuvering of these big
boats.
Hank Halsted, chair of the Bucket
committee, thanked all of the spon-
sors including the five major ship-
yards that support the event: Perini
Navi, Royal Huisman, Holland Jacht-
bouw, Alloy Yachts, and Vitters Ship-
yards. "The Bucket is finally what we
always wanted it to be," says Halsted.
"A party thrown for the yacht indus-
try by the industry we support." And
with 800 people in town for the
Bucket, the yacht industry was in
Saint Barth in full force!

Windrose, Winner Of The 2008 Saint Barth Bucket












"...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!
A"must see" when on St-Barths...

In addition to the great racing, the
Bucket committee organized a fund-
raiser for FEMUR, an American non-
profit association that has been raising
money for hospital equipment in Saint
Barth for the past 25 years. The yacht


owners were extremely generous,
donating a total $175,000. Singer Jim-
my Buffett, who gave a fabulous con-
cert with members of his Coral Reefer
band on the dock on Saturday night,
even donated the T-shirt off his back,
which was given to the largest single

president Bruno Magras, Ernest Brin of


the Port of Gustavia, and Hank Halsted,
chair of the Bucket committee, shared
the good news about the successful

again sometime in the next 25 years,"
joked Halsted.

Strong Seas and Dangerous Surf.

Northern Islands

on Alert


ince 6:00am Tuesday
,,.,rrir-. the Northern
Islands, as well as
Martinique and Guade-
loupe, have been on a yel-
low alert, which should
remain in place until Satur-
day morning. This means
special vigilance and
extreme caution as far as
swimming and other nauti-
cal activities are concerned.
The reason for the alert is a
high-pressure zone in the
Northern Atlantic that has
reinforced the tropical trade
winds. On Wednesday,
winds were blowing
between 40 to 50 km/h with
gusts over 75 km/h, often
associated with periods of
rain. The sea, which was
already rough on Wednes-


day, was expected to
become stronger toward the
weekend, with waves over
nine feet. Things should be
calmer by Monday.
The French weather service
notes that this episode of
dangerous seas is non
unexpected-there are usu-
ally three or four periods
like this between Decem-
ber and March/April-but
does not compare in force
to the dangerous surf on
Easter weekend when the
waves were seriously bat-
tering the shores. This time
the high seas are not from
the usual direction, with the
coasts the most menaced
are those exposed to the
Northeast and East.

Variety of Causes

For Recent Fires
Brushfire in Grand Cul de Sac


W while there were
at least 10 brush
fires between
Saturday, March 29 and
Monday, April 1, they did
not all have the same
cause. The fires on Mon-
day in Toiny and F.,i!ii,r,ii
were considered accidental
and the people responsible
have been identified. The
multiple fires set in Grand
Fond from Saturday
through Monday, on the
other hand, were of crimi-
nal origin according to the
national police who are
still seeking the provoca-
teurs. Could it be the work
of a pyromaniac? Not sure,
say the gendarmes who are
leaning more toward an act
of spite toward a specific


person or persons.
Research is underway in
collaboration with the ter-
ritorial police.
This recent wave of fires
started last Saturday, a lit-
tle after 10am with the first
fire in Grand Fond, fol-
lowed by a second one in
the same area in the early
afternoon. The firemen
were called again in the
mid-afternoon for a fire in
Grand Cul de Sac, which
menaced three neighboring
houses. On Sunday, the
firemen came out on three
different occasions for new
incidents, as they did again
on Monday. The estima-
tion is that 700 to 1000
square meters of land has
burned due to these fires.

YACHT CLUB AND MANAPANY:


Three DJs At The Turntables


A s an epilogue to the
recent Winter
Music Conference
held in Miami Beach,
March 25-29 (see below),
three top DJs who attended
have come to Saint Barth
and will be at the turntables
Thursday through Sunday,
with two evenings at the
Yacht Club and Sunday
brunch at the Manapany.
It's great to welcome back
the two French DJs, DJ
Gregory and Matt'Samo,
who were also here last
year. This time they are
accompanied by Markus
Enochson, a Swedish DJ
hot on the European scene:
his first time in the-
Caribbean.
What will they be doing?
"They will present the latest
songs, those they discov-
ered in Miami which are
destined to be next sum-
mer's hits," explains
Jacques Dumas, the master-
mind of this project.
"Markus Enochson is of
course well known in Swe-
den, but also in England,
Germany and Russia. He is
beginning to establish a
name in the United States
as well. We all know DJ
Gregory: the resident DJ


on French radio, Radio FG,
and organizer of the Paris
party TGV (Thank God I'm
a VIP) since 1994. He has
been an international sensa-
tion since his remix of
"Sunshine People" in 1996.
He later worked on the
Africanism project ("Block
Party" / "Tourment
d'Amour") with Bob
Sinclar and Martin Solveig.
During the summer of
2003, he climbed to the top
of the charts once again
with "Elle," and continues
to be a star on the interna-


tional scene. He will be
mixing with Matt'Samo-
the two often mix together
as a duo, as they did here
last year.

SCHEDULE INCLUDES:
J Friday at the Yacht
Club DJ Gregory and
Matt'Samo
O Sunday at Manapany:
brunch as of noon with
Markus Enochson; DJ
Gregory and Matt'Samo
take over the turntables
from 1:00-6:30pm

JEANNIE LOUGHREY


A VISITING "VICAR"


From the mean streets
of Toronto comes
Reverend Jeannie
Loughery, a visiting priest
at the Anglican Church in
Gustavia. Ordained in
1990 (Canada has had
women in the Anglican
ministry since 1976),
Loughery is the resident
priest at All Saints Church
in a disadvantaged inner-
city neighborhood in
Toronto.
"I was raised in a faith-
filled family," says Lough-
ery, who studied drama as
an undergraduate then got
her Master's in religious
studies, completed her
seminary work, and did


doctoral work in Canadian
church history and adult
education: solid training
for her work in the church
as well as serving on the
faculty of Trinity College
at the University of Toron-
to and the Toronto Disaster
Relief Committee.
Loughery has been
involved with the inner-
city church for the past 11
years: "Our training
involves what a doctor
would call a residency,"
she explains. "I did mine
at All Saints. It was an
amazing formative
process." She later
returned to All Saints,
which is located where


crack dealers
control the
corners and .
most of the:
kids have
been taken
into custody.
"Many of the
people here
have addic-
tions or men-
tal illness, or
both," Lough-
ery explains. "They are on
the edge in some way or
another. We try to see their
capabilities and possibili-
ties. Our goal is to create a
community and a sanctu-
ary where they can be
themselves." With this in
mind, the church has an
wide open-door "drop-in"
policy.
This year marks the sec-
ond visit to Saint Barth for
Loughery, who first came
last year through her
cousins who visit every
November. "They told
Charlie he should meet
me," she says, referring to
the Reverend Charles Vere
Nicoll. "There are strong
parallels between my
church and here," she
says. "In both places, you
have to put aside your pre-
conceptions. You come
here and don't know very
many people, so you meet


people for who they are. I
find them to be very kind
and very generous." In
addition to officiating at
the Anglican service in
Gustavia on Sunday morn-
ings (as she will do this
Sunday), Loughery has
attended the weekly spiri-
tuality group and medita-
tion sessions, and has been
practicing with the church
choir. "I love to sing," she
admits. "I have also been
visiting people and reading
voraciously," during her
stay at the vicarage. Plan-
ning to come back for a
longer stay this summer,
Loughery notes: "I feel
great here. It's lovely to
get away from the clutter
of my life, and I have
more time to think when I
am here."

Local News in English FREEPublished by "Le Journal de Saint-Barth" 05 90 27 65 19 stbarthweekly@wanadoo.fr WEEKLY St-BarthWEEKLY N¡146 April 4, 2008 Windrose is The Winnerof The 2008 Saint Barth Bucket

PAGE 2

0 0 2 2St Barth Weekly n¡146The 13th annual edition of the Saint Barth Bucket (www.newportbucket.com/stb arths) took place on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, March 28, 29, and 30, with the 152'Holland Jachtbouw yacht, Windrose, taking top honors. Windrose also won the third day's around-the-island race with the leading time of 2 hours, one minute and nine seconds. This year's Bucket was a true coming-of-age for the regatta, which was launched in 1996 as a Caribbean race for owners and skippers of sailboats over 100', many of whom already sailed in the original summertime Nantucket Bucket, which has now shifted to Newport, R.I. where it is held every July. Afleet of 28 boats took part, ranging from the smallest, Donald Tofias'76' W-Class Wild Horses to the 163' Perini Navi yacht, Perseus, as the largest entry. Three additional Pernini Navi boats included Andromeda Le Dea at 154', Antara at 153', and Helios at 148'. Awarded for the best performance by one of their yachts in the Bucket, the Perini Navi Cup was presented by Guila Perini to Antara. The entire fleet is divided into two classes, Les Grands Dames de la Mer, won by Windrose, and Les Gazelles, won by Rebecca, the second place overall winner. After a skipper's meeting on Thursday, March 27 where the rules of the race are explained, the boats were ready for the first regatta, a counter-clockwise tour around the island on Friday, March 28, with Gliss, a 105'Royal Huisman yacht taking first place. Elise Huisman was on hand for the Bucket, presenting the Walter Huisman Spirit of the Bucket Award (in memory of her father who she referred to as "a great boat builder and lover of sailing") to the 148'Baltic yacht, Visione, since her father loved dogs, and Visione often sails with two dogs aboard (not to mention its sleek lines and zippy performanceÉ). Day two, referred to as the "wiggly course", saw the fleet navigate around the small islands to the north of Saint Barth in an Olympic triangle. The winner: Sam Byrne's 125'Freedom of Flight, sailing well with 25 knots of wind providing some challenging moments. Day three was a glorious sunny day with winds close to 20 knots and some terrific sailing. The boats are rated for the Bucket by boat designer Jim Teeters, who jokingly says it is done by "black magic and snake oil," but who closely studies the design and performance capability of each boat, rating them on their race potential under maximal conditions. Day three proved his technique, as at least 10 boats finished within 3 minutes and seven seconds of each other, providing a spectacular finish with some pretty fast maneuvering of these big boats. Hank Halsted, chair of the Bucket committee, thanked all of the sponsors including the five major shipyards that support the event: Perini Navi, Royal Huisman, Holland Jachtbouw, Alloy Yachts, and Vitters Shipyards. "The Bucket is finally what we always wanted it to be," says Halsted. "Aparty thrown for the yacht industry by the industry we support." And with 800 people in town for the Bucket, the yacht industry was in Saint Barth in full force!

The yacht owners were extremely generous, donating a total $175,000. Singer Jimmy Buffett, who gave a fabulous concert with members of his Coral Reefer band on the dock on Saturday night, even donated the T-shirt off his back, which was given to the largest single donor. Members of the FEMUR committee, including president Joe Felix, Daniel Blanchard, Roland GrŽaux, Nicolas Wormser, Larry O'Donnell, and David Grodberg were on hand, as president Bruno Magras, Ernest Brin of the Port of Gustavia, and Hank Halsted, chair of the Bucket committee, shared the good news about the successful fund-raising effort. "We can't do this every year, but we promise we'll do it again sometime in the next 25 years," joked Halsted. Artist Veronique VanderNoot sold her special ceramic tile design created especially for the 2008 Bucket, donating 1200 euros for the FEMUR. ©: Richard M.

0 0 6 6St Barth Weekly n¡146 While there were at least 10 brush fires between Saturday, March 29 and Monday, April 1, they did not all have the same cause. The fires on Monday in Toiny and Flamands were considered accidental and the people responsible have been identified. The multiple fires set in Grand Fond from Saturday through Monday, on the other hand, were of criminal origin according to the national police who are still seeking the provocateurs. Could it be the work of a pyromaniac? Not sure, say the gendarmes who are leaning more toward an act of spite toward a specific person or persons. Research is underway in collaboration with the territorial police. This recent wave of fires started last Saturday, a little after 10am with the first fire in Grand Fond, followed by a second one in the same area in the early afternoon. The firemen were called again in the mid-afternoon for a fire in Grand Cul de Sac, which menaced three neighboring houses. On Sunday, the firemen came out on three different occasions for new incidents, as they did again on Monday. The estimation is that 700 to 1000 square meters of land has burned due to these fires. Since 6:00am Tuesday morning, the Northern Islands, as well as Martinique and Guadeloupe, have been on a yellow alert, which should remain in place until Saturday morning. This means special vigilance and extreme caution as far as swimming and other nautical activities are concerned. The reason for the alert is a high-pressure zone in the Northern Atlantic that has reinforced the tropical trade winds. On Wednesday, winds were blowing between 40 to 50 km/h with gusts over 75 km/h, often associated with periods of rain. The sea, which was already rough on Wednesday, was expected to become stronger toward the weekend, with waves over nine feet. Things should be calmer by Monday. The French weather service notes that this episode of dangerous seas is non unexpectedÑthere are usually three or four periods like this between December and March/AprilÑbut does not compare in force to the dangerous surf on Easter weekend when the waves were seriously battering the shores. This time the high seas are not from the usual direction, with the coasts the most menaced are those exposed to the Northeast and East.

As an epilogue to the recent Winter Music Conference held in Miami Beach, March 25-29 (see below), three top DJs who attended have come to Saint Barth and will be at the turntables Thursday through Sunday, with two evenings at the Yacht Club and Sunday brunch at the Manapany. It's great to welcome back the two French DJs, DJ Gregory and Matt'Samo, who were also here last year. This time they are accompanied by Markus Enochson, a Swedish DJ hot on the European scene: his first time in theCaribbean. What will they be doing? "They will present the latest songs, those they discovered in Miami which are destined to be next summer's hits," explains Jacques Dumas, the mastermind of this project. "Markus Enochson is of course well known in Sweden, but also in England, Germany and Russia. He is beginning to establish a name in the United States as well. We all know DJ Gregory: the resident DJ on French radio, Radio FG, and organizer of the Paris party TGV(Thank God I'm a VIP) since 1994. He has been an international sensation since his remix of "Sunshine People" in 1996. He later worked on the Africanism project ("Block Party" / "Tourment d'Amour") with Bob Sinclar and Martin Solveig. During the summer of 2003, he climbed to the top of the charts once again with "Elle," and continues to be a star on the international scene. He will be mixing with Matt'SamoÑ the two often mix together as a duo, as they did here last year. WINTERMUSICCONFERENCE, THECANNESFESTIVALŽFORDJS40,000 people from around the world: The Winter Music Conference in Miami Beach, which includes Remix Hotel, is the world's largest electronic music event. Sort of like a "Cannes Film Festival" for DJs, where close to 1,800 "mix-masters" have the crowds dancing to the latest sounds, many of which are premiered here.

0 0 8 8St Barth Weekly n¡146From the mean streets of Toronto comes Reverend Jeannie Loughery, a visiting priest at the Anglican Church in Gustavia. Ordained in 1990 (Canada has had women in the Anglican ministry since 1976), Loughery is the resident priest at All Saints Church in a disadvantaged innercity neighborhood in Toronto. "I was raised in a faithfilled family," says Loughery, who studied drama as an undergraduate then got her Master's in religious studies, completed her seminary work, and did doctoral work in Canadian church history and adult education: solid training for her work in the church as well as serving on the faculty of Trinity College at the University of Toronto and the Toronto Disaster Relief Committee. Loughery has been involved with the innercity church for the past 11 years: "Our training involves what a doctor would call a residency," she explains. "I did mine at All Saints. It was an amazing formative process." She later returned to All Saints, which is located where crack dealers control the corners and most of the kids have been taken into custody. "Many of the people here have addictions or mental illness, or both," Loughery explains. "They are on the edge in some way or another. We try to see their capabilities and possibilities. Our goal is to create a community and a sanctuary where they can be themselves." With this in mind, the church has an wide open-door "drop-in" policy. This year marks the second visit to Saint Barth for Loughery, who first came last year through her cousins who visit every November. "They told Charlie he should meet me," she says, referring to the Reverend Charles Vere Nicoll. "There are strong parallels between my church and here," she says. "In both places, you have to put aside your preconceptions. You come here and don't know very many people, so you meet people for who they are. I find them to be very kind and very generous." In addition to officiating at the Anglican service in Gustavia on Sunday mornings (as she will do this Sunday), Loughery has attended the weekly spirituality group and meditation sessions, and has been practicing with the church choir. "I love to sing," she admits. "I have also been visiting people and reading voraciously," during her stay at the vicarage. Planning to come back for a longer stay this summer, Loughery notes: "I feel great here. It's lovely to get away from the clutter of my life, and I have more time to think when I am here."

Ranger at 136' requires a crew of 30 to maneuver this replica of the classic J-Class boat. The original was built in the 1930s and was a serious America's Cup defender, winning in 1937. Colorful spinnakers dance between the point of Gouverneur and the finish line off the Petits Saints.

Hyperion, a 156' Royal Huisman yacht, battling the waves half-way between the point of Colombier and Toc Vert. It's a tradition aboard Rebecca, the 141' Pendennis yacht, for the crew to wear funny costumes at the start of the race. Singer Jimmy Buffett was one of the "udderly ridiculous" cows enjoying this year's fun. Their antics won them the Bucket's Skullduggery award. Rebecca passes Hyperion during a well-timed tack that prevented Hyperion from overtaking Rebecca. Saint Barth Bucket Saint Barth Bucket
