Richard Mille, Major Partner

For Les Voiles de Saint Barth

Richard Mille, a leading
sponsor of the Perini Navi
Cup in Sardinia and Le
Mans Classic car race, will
be a major sponsor of the
first edition of Les Voiles
de Saint Barth, a new
regatta that will take place
from April 6-11, 2010.
Mille, a luxury Swiss
watchmaker, will use the
occasion to unveil a new
diving watch, as well as
present the three top prizes
in the super yacht class:
some of the best watches
from the catalogue of this
"Formula 1 of watch mak-
ing." Additional sponsors
include BDAF (Banque
des Antilles Frangaises)
and the Saint Barth Hotel
Association, which has
offered 250 room nights to
Les Voiles de Saint Barth.
Funds are still needed to
balance the 265,000 euro
budget for the event, of
which 100,000 is from the
CTTSB (St Barth Tourism
Committee). To raise the
needed monies, regatta
organizers are looking to
local businesses as poten-
tial sponsors, asking for
donations at three levels:
150, 300, or 450 euros.
"Of course people can
donate even more," notes
Frangois Paul Tolede,
director of the event, who
says "It's great to eat the
fruit, but don't forget those
who planted the trees. The
event was launched in the
economic interest of the
island in the hopes of pro-
longing the tourist season
and attracting attention in
the media to help promote
the island as a tourist des-
tination. It only makes
sense for everyone to par-

31 Boats
On The List,
60 Are Expected
As of Tuesday, January 26,
31 sailboats were registered
in five different classes for
Les Voiles de Saint Barth,
including six in the Super-
yacht class, and seven "clas-

sics." These are the two top
categories of the event,
whose goal is to host the
beautiful collection of sail-
boats usually found in the
Caribbean during the
spring. "We are not worried:
the Heineken Regatta,
which comprises almost
300 boats, only has 35 as of

today. We knew that the
entries would come in late
and we are prepared for
that," adds Fran9ois-Paul
Tolede, who hopes to see 60
boats on the starting line.
"For a first edition, that
would be great. If there are
over 100 boats, we might
even get in the Guinness
World Records."
There is one race planned
for each day, with the itiner-
aries to be determined clos-
er to the regatta. One day
will feature a race around
the island, to be completed
by all boats in less than four
hours, depending on their
class. All races will be rated
according to the regulations
of the CSA (Caribbean Sail-
ing Association), as used for
the majority of West Indies

Oasis Surf Generation, a DVD for Teens Made by a Teen

Eliott Ivarra, a 13 year-old student at
the Mireille Choisy Junior High in
Saint Barth and a member of the
AJOE Reefer Surf Club, is the princi-
pal actor in the DVD, Oasis Surf
Generation, sponsored by the Oasis
beverage company. Shot from July
21- August 7, 2009 in Costa Rica, at
the Tamarindo surf spot on the Pacif-
ic coast, this film, which premiered in
Saint Barth last Saturday evening, is
the first in a series "Oasis Surf Gener-
ation," launched by Marty Toure of
Wavecom, and Eliott's father, Gilles,
of Radio Saint Barth. This goal of
these DVDs is to promote surf desti-
nations through the eyes of an adoles-
cent, in this case Eliott.
"The first day of shooting, I was a lit-
tle stressed," Eliott recalls. "And I
was aware of the camera. After that I
was able to surf in total freedom. I am
happy with this first film and am
ready to head to another surf spot as
soon as possible. That should be in
July. If all goes well, we will be able

Sweden's leading "rock
star" is back in Saint Barth
for his third annual winter
show, but of course the
"rocks" are precious and
semi-precious stones and
the show will be at the
Swedish Design Centre at
Les Amandiers in Saint Jean
(www. swedishdesigncen-
tre.com), where Sebastian
Schlidt's new collection
opens on Saturday, January
30 from 6-8pm. Other spe-
cial events include two
shows at the Guanahani
Hotel and Spa: the first is on
Friday, January 29 at Bar-
tolomeo restaurant at
8:30pm, and the second on
Saturday, January 30 at

1:30pm Indigo in collabora-
tion with fashions from the
boutique Civette
"Sebastian's new collection
shows inspiration from his
last visit here in St Barth as
well where he spends his
summers in the Swedish
archipelago," says Susanna
Freer Passburg, of the
Swedish Design Centre.
"He has created boat shaped
rings with white gold and
lime quartz, bracelets
sparkling with aquamarines
and diamonds, and modem
shapes and new combina-
tions with zircon and dia-
monds, chrysoberyl, and
gold made with passion and
love that even shows

through to those who are
lucky to wear them!"

Born in Stockholm in 1964,
Schildt recalls, "I was
always interested in stones,
but you can't really be a
stone cutter in Sweden, it's
too small a country."
Instead, he began as an
apprentice to a silversmith,
which explains the double
design skills of working
with silver and stones. His
sterling silver collection
includes an art-deco-
inspired cocktail shaker and
martini glasses with gold-
washed interiors and a
matching tray: turquoise
Plexiglas rings evoke the
color of the sea around
Saint Barth.

different from what I would
make for Sweden," he says
about special pieces in last
year's collection, such as
pink coral necklaces.
"These look good with
tanned skin, so they are per-
fect for the Caribbean. The
same is true for the gold
pearls. These pieces were
conceived for Saint Barth."

As for the stones, Schildt
likes any stone as long as
it's perfect. "It's about
reflecting light," he says. "If
a stone is not cut properly it
doesn't reflect light and it's
not beautiful." But as he
said the first time we met,
"the most interesting thing
about any piece of my jew-
elry is the woman who
wears it."

Biodynamic Wine Week

Jean-Baptiste Barre, founder and
owner of Absolutely Wine in Grand
Fond, came up with the idea of a
week's activities designed to intro-
duce the concept of biodynamic viti-
culture in Saint Barth. Taking place
from February 9-14, and organized in
conjunction with the associations
Gofits et Saveurs and WI.S.S.E, this
oenological event will host four wine
growers from France who have
adopted biodynamic methods to pro-
duce organic vintages. Founded in
1924, this agricultural production
system stems from the ideas and phi-
losophy of anthroposophist Rudolf
Steiner, and is a holistic approach to
growing grapes. Biodynamic growers

Robert Eden,
Chateau Maris
use a series of special preparations to
enhance the life of the soil, which are
applied at appropriate times in keeping
with lunar and cosmic rhythms in
nature to help fight against parasites,
while at same time helping to regener-
ate the soil. The goal is to obtain
healthy plants that do not exhaust the

soil by over extensive exploitation.
"Biodynamic vineyards are also char-
acterized by their proximity to
prairies, ruches, and hedges... an asso-
ciation of cultures that helps protect
the soil from erosion by favoring the
infiltration of water, and by decompo-
sition, increasing the fertility and qual-
ity of the earth that surrounds the
vines," explains Jean-Baptiste Barre.
In addition to the quality of their
wines, he also admires the persever-
ance of these viticulturists: "If some-
thing goes wrong, an entire harvest
can be lost. You really have to believe
in this," adds the sommelier who
decided to organize this event to help
promote these wines that he thinks are
very interesting (see inset): "Here, a
lot of different kinds of wine are con-
sumed... Bordeaux, Burgundy, Pinot
Noir... My challenge as a sommelier
is to introduce these vineyards that
are doing something exceptional.
This is the case for the four wine
growers who will be featured during
this event. In addition, since many
people are buying and consuming an
increasing number of organic prod-
ucts, it seems appropriate to introduce
Saint Barth to the concept of biody-
namic wine, which has become popu-
lar elsewhere but is still pretty much
unknown here."

The schedule for the biodynamic wine
week includes a session open to the

public, during which the wine grow-
ers will explain the basics of biody-
namic viticulture, and talk about the
specific wines they will offer during
the tasting that follow the confer-
ence. On Wednesday, February 10
and Thursday, February 11 at 6:00pm,
Absolutely Wine will host an open
house during which wine lovers can
taste biodynamic bottles and meet the
wine growers, who, according to
Jean-Baptiste Barre "will be happy to
share their passion for their wine with
as large an audience as possible." In
addition, on five evenings from Tues-
day through Saturday, a dinner with
wine tasting will be organized in a
different restaurant on the island.

Guillaume Keller
Chateau de Fosse Seche
Each menu will be crafted in consulta-
tion with the chefs in order to perfectly
pair the cuisine with these subtle, sur-
prising, and unusual wines. Each
evening is the perfect occasion to dis-
cover three to six different wines made
by the four viticulturists. Wine tasting
are also on the program at 5:00pm on
Friday, February 12 at Do Brazil on
Shell Beach.

Yannick Gr6aux, local
representative for the
French weather service,
M6teo France, recaps the
weather during 2009: a
particularly hot, dry

Rainfall: the sixth driest
year since 1959
The total rainfall measured
in Gustavia was just 27
inches in 2009, making it
the sixth driest year since
1959. The record for the
driest year goes to 1963,
with just 20 inches of rain,
while 71 inches of rain
make 1979 the wettest year
in recent history. Rainfall
measured in Lorient and
Flamands would put 2009
in fifth place for the driest
year since 1979.

Temperature: Hot, Hot,
With an average tempera-
ture of 81F in 2009, it
was a hotter year than
2008. As far as global tem-
peratures go and according
to a report issued in
December by the World
Meteorological Organiza-
tion (WMO), 2009 will be
recorded as one of the 10
hottest years since 1850,
when instruments were
first used to record temper-
atures. The WMO also not-
ed that the decade from
2000-2009 was warmer
than the preceding decade
(1990-1999), which was
also hotter than the years
from 1980-1989.

Average Humidity
In The Air
During 2009, the humidity
in the air varied from an
average of 52%, which is
within the normal range, to
a higher than average max-
imum humidity of 95%.

Christmas day was marked
by 100% humidity.

Winds Not Too
Winds blew from the east
most of the year, except
for the last two weeks in
December then they came
from the south. These
southern breezes were a
relief from a period that
had been relatively hot for
the beginning of the winter
The average annual wind
was 10mph.
The highest wind of the
year was 59 mph, recorded
on August 18, 2009.

Ocean Temperatures
The ocean remained rela-
tively cool during the first
six months of the year, and
remained close to 770F in
the month of March 2009.
After heating up, the tem-
perature of the ocean was
higher than average near
the end of the year, even
reaching 82.40F in Decem-
According to the NOAA
(National Oceanic and
Atmospheric Administra-
tion), December 2009
places second from the top
in terms of the hottest
ocean water temperatures
since 1997.

An unusual event:
Strong swells at the end
of the year
A series of strong swells
from the north-northeast
hit the shores of the island
from December 28-30,
2009, causing the main
port and commercial port
to be closed. During this
period, the swells were
measured at the Grande
Vigie in Guadeloupe, with
maximum waves of 21

feet on the morning of
December 29.

Hurricane report:
The 2009 hurricane season
was below the average
since 1950 in terms of
activity and the number of
hurricanes. To be more
precise, after 1997, 2009
saw the second least
intense hurricane season in
the past 15 years, as there
were only three hurricanes
and six tropical storms in
the Caribbean basin of the
North Atlantic last year.
This decrease in activity is
most likely related to El
Nino, a moderate c athil
pattern in the tropical

well, with the first tropical
storm, Ana, in the area

blew past on September 2
and 3, with an orange alert
in Guadeloupe, St Martin,
and St Barth. Hurricane
Bill (August 15-24) even-
tually reached category 4
when it passed over 400
miles to the east of Saint
Barth. It was accompanies
by strong swells from the
north, with waves reaching
over 12 feet at times
according to measure-
ments taken at the Grande
Vigie. The Northern
Islands were lucky to have
escaped this storm, which
passed less than 300 from
St Martin on August 20,
2009. The years with the
latest debut to the
hurricane season were
1967 and 1977, when the
first storms appears on
August 30.


The French painter is
back: Alain Le Chatelier,
who has shown his work at
Les Artisans in Gustavia
since 1996, has returned
with a collection of paint-
ings that focus on Saint
Barth. "Last year while I
was here I did a lot of
drawings and took a lot of
photographs of the land-
scapes," says Le Chatelier,
whose former collections
shown here were based on
his studio, home, and gar-
den in Paris and the
French countryside, featur-
ing ripe fruit, frying eggs,
unmade beds, half-eaten
cakes, forks dancing in the
air, and the combined
sense of humor and
trompe l'oeil that charac-

terize the work of this per-
fectionist whose paintings
never fail to please.
This year the work has a
different feel as Le Chate-
lier explores the island's
landscapes as well as its
light: "The light is very
different here," he notes,
"and there are some very
beautiful moments where
the light changes very
quickly. It's not like in
France, or Sweden where I
also exhibit my work and
the sunsets last all
evening." When he left the
island last winter, the
painter had enough "food"
in his drawings and photo-
graphs to create this col-
lection of 30 new paint-
ings. "The big ones were

) 1 h -. I I I '-.. i

of a small French island basking

all done at my house in the
country," he says.
One of the largest paint-
ings is a view of the port
of Gustavia at sunset, with
lights twinkling around the
harbor, but as is typical
with Le Chatelier, he
played with the position of
the houses and some of the
colors, playing with that
elusive light at the end of
the day. In another scene,
the narrow road in Lurin, a
fictitious mango tree
appears in the painting.
Nature yes, true to nature,
not entirely.
"The sea here can be
black, dark blue, even
white, it depends on how
the sun hits it, although we
always dream of blue
seas," says this painter
whose eye captures the
soul of what it sees and
translates it into a captivat-
ing image on canvas, from
dark green cactus with an
iguana peeking out at you,
or a grove of latanier trees

in Flamands set against a
fiery red sky. A series of
small paintings evoke ele-
ments of the island as well
as cactus and bread fruit
typical of the Caribbean.
"What I like best about
Saint Barth is its natural
beauty," affirms Le Chate-
lier. "But because it's Saint
Barth there is always one
boat, one car, one helicop-
ter, one airplane," he adds.
"I walk around the island a
lot. I have a lot of images
of the landscape in my
At times, Le Chatelier
seems almost like a
botanist let loose with a
paintbrush: he has always

vegetation, oversized
leaves, and the variegated
greens of gardens-a per-

to the essence of Saint

6000 m2 of Artificial Turf

At The Stadium In Saint Jean

It has been a long time since
anyone saw grass on a soc-
cer field in Saint Barth. Yet
at one time, this did exist on
the island: in the 1970s and
80s there was a playing
field in Saint Jean where the
airport terminal now stands,
and it had a lovely natural
lawn... conveniently
mowed by sheep!
So it's sort of like back to
the future n':v that1 the new
sports stadium has 6,000
square meters (65,000
square feet) of artificial turf
and a synthetic athletic
track. Russian tycoon
Roman Abramovitch, own-
er of the British soccer
team, Chelsea FC, as well
as the property along Gou-
verneur beach in Saint
Barth, financed this project
at an estimated cost of 1.3
million euros.
Stephane Crozatier, associ-
ate director of the island's
technical services depart-
ment, explains the different
phases of the project:
"After creating a founda-
tion on the existing dirt sur-
face, a first layer of
drainage gravel was placed
to cover the playing field
and athletic track. Next
came a layer of plastic
film, then another layer of

project- under the direc-
tion of engineer Daniel
Santos-began to unroll a
layer of synthetic grass
almost 2.5" high. Sand and
granulated rubber pebbles
were added as infill to the
strips of turf as they were
put in place. Once complet- "
ed, this will help make the Wa t W ointimately.
'grass' more rigid, with just
0.3" loose fibers on top.
The installation of a syn-
thetic athletic track around
the soccer field will be the _
final phase of this project" -'
