A ll the action of a
battle at sea on
Thursday, Novem-
ber 27: In transit off the
coast of Saint Barthelemy,
at 6:30am, the oil tanker, FS
Salome, transporting a large
cargo of fuel, ran into a con-
tainer ship. The impact
caused a hole in the double
hull of the ship and also
provoked an explosion of a

to verify the efficiency of
the Polmar project, the
French plan for fighting
pollution at sea, as pub-
lished for the entire French
West Indies zone in 2003.
This exercise, held just out-
side the port of Gustavia,
called upon some pretty
heavy artillery: other than
the oil tanker, and the Mai-
to, a French Navy tugboat

tank. White the 300,000
liters of fuel spread on the
ocean, the crew was battling
the fire.
But there is really nothing
to worry about: this cata-
strophic scenario was not
real. It was conceived as a
marine anti-pollution exer-
cise deployed last Thursday,
for the first time in the
North islands. The goal of
this large-scale exercise was

from Fort-de-France, the
other boats involved
included the SNSM rescue
boats from the stations in
Saint Martin as well as
Saint Barthelemy, and the
Statia Responder, the NuS-
tar Energy boat dedicated
to the fight against marine
pollution from the tanker
terminal in Saint Eustatius.
Two Puma helicopters
from Airforce flew over
from Martinique
and a Dash air-
plane from the
Dutch Coast
S The Statia Respon-
der can recuperate
and stock almost
80,000 gallons of
oil or other liquids
in its tanks.

Guard came from Curacao,
comprising the air-borne
part of the effort. The
Crossag (the coordination
center for rescue at sea in
the Atlantic zone) based in
Martinique coordinated the
sea and air efforts.
The exercise took place in
two different phases dur-
ing which on could watch:
the removal of an injured
person from the oil tanker
to the Capitaine Danet,
Saint Barth's SNSM res-
cue boat; this allowed the
crew to familiarize itself
with a maneuver they had
never done. Also interest-
ing to watch was the land-
ing of the Polmar evalua-
tion team from one of the
helicopters to the deck of
the tanker. And finally, the
deployment of a floating
dam from the Statia
Responder, the only boat
in the surrounding zone
that has this system for the
retention and pumping of
pollution as well as tanks
to stock 80,000 gallons.

2009 Northern Islands
Polmar Project
The exercise held last
Thursday was more than
just a simple exercise of
validation. It was the beta
test for the new anti-pollu-
tion efforts specific to the
Northern Islands that will
be annexed to the overall
French West Indies plan.
This specific project should
be finalized in 2009, and
has some ususual details:
for one thing, it will include
the integration of foreign
resources, while Polmar
generally uses only those
from France. This change
was necessary based on the
distance of La Fougueuse-
based in Martinique-cur-
rently the only French mili-
tary ship with marine anti-
pollution equipment-and
the tugboat, Maito, which
should get updated some-
time in 2009 to include this
equipment on board, has a
handicap in its small size: it
takes it 40 hours to reach
the Northern Islands.

Crews from the SNSM stations in Saint Martin
and Saint Barth took part in the exercise.

Saint Barth To Benefit
From Abatement
Of Employer Social
Security Charges
Speaking in the Senate on Tuesday
evening, senator Michel Magras was suc-
cessful in having an amendment added to
the finance act for 2009, which would
maintain Saint Barthelemy on the list of
locales where companies doing business in
the overseas territories are exempted by the
French government from paying social
security charges for their employees. Since
2003, Saint Barthelemy has benefitted from
a total abatement of these charges, but Arti-
cle 65 of the finance act for 2009, by
absence of a specific reference to the Col-
lectivity of Saint Barthelemy, would have
excluded the island from this abatement as
of January 1, 2009. The amendment pro-
posed to Article 65 by Michel Magras, and
adopted unanimously, would reintegrate
Saint Barth in the list of collectivities that
benefit from the exemption.

On Saturday, November 29, a
spectacular collision took place to
the northeast of the Forchue
island. Two motorboats, Ocean, a
Santoise with four people aboard,
and Sacha, a 37' cigarette, with
three people aboard, smashed into
each other as night began to fall. It
seems as if the two boats did not
see each other, or if they did it
was too late to avoid the crash.
Three of the four crewmembers
aboard Ocean were injured slight-
ly in the accident, while the ciga-
rette, Sacha, was hit on the rear
starboard side with at least one of
its motors ripped off, and floated
away below the surface of the
water as it began to sink.
The seven men arrived in the Port
of Gustavia around 7:30pm and
those who were injured were tak-
en to the Hospital de Bruyn.

According to our information,
their injuries were not very severe.
The SNSM contacted the Crossag
who in turn asked the gendarmes
to intervene. An inquest will try to
determine the responsibility of
each boat in the accident, which
could have been a lot more seri-
In spite of an initial dive made the
next day in the area of the acci-
dent, Sacha-which sank a few
minutes after the collision-was
not found. With the strong cur-
rents in this zone at present, the
boat could have drifted away.
Additional dives will be organ-
ized, including one by the nautical
brigade from the gendarmerie, to
try and find the wreck in an
attempt to discover what actually

Gasoline: 15 centimes less at the pumps!

From 1.37 Euros, the price
for one liter of lead-free gas
has gone down to 1.22
Euros as revealed by Over-
seas Secretary of State Yves
Jego on Monday, December
1. This is a decrease of 15
centimes/liter (and 10 cen-
times per liter for diesel).
This decrease was not just
in Saint Barth: Guadeloupe,
and Martinique also saw
prices go down the same
amount, while in French
Guyana, which was para-
lyzed by demonstrations
and roadblocks for over a
week in protest of high
prices, gas has gone down

by 30 centimes per liter at
the pumps.
If this decrease was happily
accepted, it wasn't at the
level that had been hoped
for or calculated. It is hard
to understand why
Guyana-which is provi-
sioned by the Sara refinery
in Martinique, just like
Saint Barth, Guadeloupe,
and Martinique-would
benefit from a decrease of
30 centimes per liter and the
others just 15 centimes. It is
also difficult to understand
why, when at the beginning
of the year, at a time when
oil was over $95 a barrel,

the price of gas was 1.27
Euros per liter, and when a
barrel of oil was $50, the
price at the pump was at
1.27 Euros, and when the
barrel went below $50, the
pump said 1.37 Euros.
This is why Yves Jego
should be congratulated for
his new initiative: a mission
called "Operation Truth
About The Prices of Fuel in
Overseas France." Accord-
ing to a press release that
Jego's office issued on
Monday, the mission should
get underway this week, "to
delve deeply and find solu-
tions so that the price of fuel

overseas fluctuates at the
same rate with the rest of
It remains to be seen is
Saint Barth is a separate
part of the mission, or if
once again, the Collectivity
is included with the rest of
Guadeloupe. That would
really be a shame, as the
problems of provisioning
and applicable taxes are not
at all equivalent. In addi-
tion, that would be another
example that the autonomy
granted to Saint Barthelemy
is nothing more than words
on a piece of paper.

Spectacular Collision Between Two Boats:


The Second Leg Is Underway

he start of the second
leg of the Transat
Classique Lagasse*
took place on Friday,
November 28. While 18
boats set out from the port of
Agadir in Morocco toward
the finish line at the Port of
Gustavia-where the fleet is
expected to arrive in mid-
December-17 are still in
the race. Corto, a 42' sloop,
was forced to abandon due
to electronics problems.
Kataree, a 1959 yawl that
stopped in Las Palmas to
repair a major fuel leak,
rejoined the race on Wednes-
day morning.
After four days at sea, the
boats were following various
routes across the Atlantic.
With winds blowing at 15 to
20 knots from the East-
Northeast, the fleet fanned
out over a 300-mile area

Departure of the second leg of the Transat Classique Lagasse

The German crew of Mis-
tral, a 1938 schooner in 12th
place as of December 3, opt-
ed for the most southern
route. Pazienza, a 1956
Bermuda sloop, in 7th place
last Wednesday, also opted
for a southern route, along
with the 11th place Infanta, a
1947 yawl, Telen Ar Vor, a
1964 sloop (6th place) and
Petite Lande, a 1992

schooner (14th place).
Those who took the more
direct-but colder more dif-
ficult-Northern route
include Pen Duick VI (9th
place), the Marconi ketch
built specially for the Whit-
bread, and Faiaoahe, a 2006
reproduction in 4th place.
Also on the direct route is
Stiren, a 1959 yawl, winner
of the first leg of the race
and leader so far on the sec-
ond leg, with Lamnidee, a
1974 ketch, in second place
as of Wednesday. The first
leg of the Transat Classique
Lagasse set sail from
Douarnenez, (a French port
in Brittany) on August 19,
heading toward Agadir,
where the first boats arrived
on August 27.

Yachtsmen and
women, owners and
crews of classic
yachts, have for a
long time hoped for a
great ocean race chal-
lenge. Here it is! "This
classic transatlantic
ocean race, in mythic
waters, will be the
first Transat Classic.
We aim to be an abso-
lute must among the
international ocean
yacht racing events,"
says race organizer
Loic Blanken, who
organize the event.

Julien Greaux: The American Dream Continues

He left Saint Barth in early 2002 with
400 dollars in his pocket. His dream
was to conquer America and settle in
Los Angeles. Today, at the age of 32,
Julien Greaux recently returned to his
native island after an absence of seven
years. Just a quick visit, but he told us
about the evolution of his career as a
fitness model in California.
Julien lives in Los Angeles and finally
has his precious green card as a per-
manent resident of the United States.
With at least 30 magazine covers
under his belt, he is currently one of
the top models in the world of fitness.
Three years ago, he signed a contract
to represent BSN, the world's largest
company for nutritional supplements.
He is also the first Frenchman in histo-
ry to be the "face" of such an Ameri-
can company!
He recently signed a contract with pro-
ducer Dimitri Logothetis to make six
martial arts action films. The first,
entitled "Wings Of The Dragon,"
should start shooting early in 2009.
Julien is the lead actor and will finally
realize the dream that pushed him

Julien Grdaux will be on the cover
of the February issue of Muscle &
Fitness magazine. For Julien, "this
is a dream that hasjust come true.
Ihave been reading this magazine
for 20 years. And today, I am on
the cover" And it's a magazine
that prints several million copies
per month!

toward the United States: to make
films. Julien met the producer via a
cameraman who was looking for mar-
tial arts experts to be extras in some
films. "I gave him my press book. He
gave me a copy of the script. I imme-
diately noted the producer's phone
number and called him," says Julien,
who believes in the adage, "It doesn't
hurt to ask. I had nothing to lose and
he wasn't going to come looking for
me," as his credo. "He had just seen
my photos and wanted to meet me.
We had quite a few meetings and in
the end, he modified the story of the
film and asked me to be the principal
actor. I signed a contract for five
additional productions as well,"
explains Julien, who dreams of noth-
ing more than becoming the new
action hero: "In the 90s there was
Arnold Schwarzenegger, Wesley
Snipes, Sylvester Stallone... Today,
the actors from action films have dis-
appeared from the big screen. I would
like to be part of the next wave and
inspire young people, as those actors
did for me." We wish him good luck!

Three National Podiums For Antoine Questel

In a period of three weeks, our local
windsurfing champion Antoine Ques-
tel raced in three national finals in
France (Formula, Funboard, and Long
Distance). While he did not win the
title, he did appear on all three podi-
ums, confirming his place at the high-
est level in his sport.
In the French championship finals for
Formula Windsurfing, which took
place in late October in Bandol in
Southern France, Antoine missed first
place by a hair. After the six legs of the
race, he actually had as many points as
the first place winner, but the champi-
on had won one more race overall.
In the Long Distance competition,
which counts the five best results over
the entire season, Questel came in
third out of 745 participants. A victory
that would have pleased many com-
petitors, but not Antoine, who regrets
not being able to participate in a big
race which would have given him
more points: "I lost the chance to fin-

4 -~

j ...)~

ish on the top step of the podium,"
states the champion, who consoles
himself with the fact that thanks to his
intensive training at the National Sail-
ing School in Quiberon, and his high-
performance equipment from Loft
Sails and Mistral, he gained a lot of
speed this season.
Antoine also took third place on the

final podium in the French Funboard
championship. In doing so he met his
goal for the season: to be on the three
national podiums!
Before he returns to Saint Barth later
in December, Antoine expects to go
Tarifa in Portugal, to the sail-maker,
Loft Sails, to test and help with the
development of their new products.
