"The level of interest was
phenomenal once again,"
says Hank Halsted, manag-
ing director, Bucket Regat-
tas, LLC, about the 2010 St
Barth Bucket, taking place
March 26-28, 2010. "We
had 55 applications this
year, but preferring to grow
the event organically and
not too much at one time,
we decided to accept up to
40 yachts. We actually
have 39, but in the end it's
about the quality of the
event, not just the number
of boats. Even with that
number, we feel it's time to
be as good as we possibly
can at managing the on-
water racing and particular-
ly the safety between the
super-yachts."
With that in mind, Peter
Craig of Premiere Racing
Inc. will be the Bucket's
first PRO (professional race
officer), in what Halsted
calls "a very exciting move
forward for the Bucket.
Peter will be responsible for
all on-water activities of the
Bucket; courses, buoys,
start/finish, all chase and
safety boats." Craig will
work with Ernest Brin,
director of the Port Gus-
tavia, and the organizing
race committee, so that the
racing is done to the best,
professional standard.
In order to keep the sense of
2


fun in the event, Halsted
notes: "We need to balance
the rules, and make sure we
keep it wholesome sports-
manship and not just blood
and guts racing." Yet some
news rules have been estab-
lished, including new safety
protocol, that most of the
fleet is happy to hear about.
"The traditional rules of
sailing assume that sailboats
can turn or stop quickly, but
these rules were written for
smaller boats. Some of
these are "ships" of 500+
tons, and we need to make
allowances for them to par-
ticipate safely. It is a deli-
cate balance to keep the rac-
ing spirit alive," Halsted
notes.?
One of the new rules
requires a distance of 40
meters between the boats at
all times: "That's a boat
length," points out Halsted.
"These boats when being
raced, can keel over and the
mast length is an issue,
adding an extra 15 meters of
width. Also if one of these
boats loses control, the 40
meters disappears very
quickly." Another new rule:
faster boats must pass out-
side the slower boats at
turning marks. "We are not
trying to encourage argu-
ments," Halsted adds. "We
have organized 24 years of
Buckets ili..ut a single


official protest hearing. We
don't want to go there, but
we will if we get reports of
unsportsmanlike behavior.
Boats could be excused
from future Buckets for
bad behavior. We like to
settle our arguments over
competitive advantage
with a case of chilled
champagne and if the
champagne is good
enough you might win
your complaint," he says
with a chuckle. "But a
serious complaint will be
treated seriously. Once the
rules are understood, we
are still here to have fun.
But one major collision
and the race would end."
The Bucket is also employ-
ing lots of new safety tools,
including communication
between boats via VHF to
share their intentions, and
so that competing boats can
make safe crossings. Anoth-
er improvement is the AIS
radar tool, which identifies
the position of all the boats
and their course and speed,
so each boat knows what
the others are doing and can
avoid collisions. In addition
each boat has to have not
only a professional tacti-
cian, but also a safety tacti-
cian, to monitor the safe
course the boat is sailing on,
and inauct i I iil.h the captain
and tactician to keep the


boats sailing safely.
Highlights of the 2010
Bucket: Not only an incred-
ible fleet of 39 extraordi-
nary sailboats, but also the
kinetic ballet of two J-Boat
replicas, newcomer Hanu-
man (winner of the 2009
New Year's Eve Regatta in
St Barth) and Ranger, a fre-
quent Bucket participant,
racing against each other.
Halsted says the Bucket
organizers are trying to
come up with a life-pack-
or first aid tool for saving
lives-for the De Bruyn
hospital. "That's our dona-
tion this year. We want to
find the right equipment and
bring it with us," explains
Halsted. Prior donations
have included small sail-
boats for the St Barth Sail-
ing School and funds to pur-
chase computers to the local
junior high school. "It's nice
for us to leave something
behind that's meaningful
every year," Halsted con-
cludes.
What's on the horizon for
the Bucket Regattas: After
the great 15th anniversary
expected here this year,
2011 marks the 25th
anniversary of the very first
Nantucket Bucket, the origi-
nal Bucket Regatta. Could a
reprise of the Nantucket
Bucket be on the drawing
boards?

CONSEQUENCES OF SWELLS FROM THE SOUTHWEST

A grounded yacht; a capsized sailboat


A small depression around
the Northern Islands on
Wednesday, February 24,
caused problems for two
boats: an 86' motor yacht
close to the coast of Anse
des Cayes, and a 32' sail-
boat anchored near
Corossol.
The winds were coming
from the s.:.ul th is (which
is unusual) at an average
of 18-24mph, with gusts
up to 40mph, causing
swells from the _-.:.'tl'h ie_

which the outer harbor is
not protected. A sailboat
baptized "Spirit" was
anchored near Corossol,
but sank under the weight

She refers to herself as a "rock
hound," this Maine-based jeweler
who attended the Wooster Art
Museum School in Massachusetts
and wanted to be a portrait artist.
But her love of stones and metals
turned Lisa Svedberg into a jewel-
er. "I started collecting rocks as a
kid," she recalls. "Metal working
is a vehicle to working with the
rocks." Of course, she is no longer
playing with the rocks she might
have found as a child, but with
fiery opals from Mexico, languid
aquamarines, smoky pearls, seduc-
tive citrine, and deep blue lapis
lazuli, set with precision in a series
of pieces currently on display at
Les Artisans in Gustavia. "I start-
ing out working in a jewelry store
and the owner saw that I was
bored. He gave me a box of scrap
gold to play with and that was it."
Svedberg's inspiration is found in
ancient art and architecture, and
these influences can be seen in her
work. "I spent 10 years in London
looking at collections at museums
like the Victoria and Albert, she


notes. "I developed an affinity for
ancient Egyptian art especially."
Aspects of this interest echo in the
sculptural side of Svedberg's
pieces, although she admits to
being inspired by natural forms as
well.
Using 18k and 22k gold, as well as
platinum, to mount her stones,
Svedberg admits: "the stones
choose me, but I love to collect
them. I have more than I'll ever
use in one lifetime." She attends a
gem show in Tucson, Arizona
every year or dealers visit her stu-


dio, bringing pieces she may even-
tually cut or hand-carve herself. "I
look for a lot of light, scintillation,
or a pinpoint of fire when choosing
a stone," she explains. "I do not
like pale stones but prefer intense
colors, a real saturation." She often
combines stones in one piece, cre-
ating interesting juxtapositions of
bright colors, or different stones
with the same hue: "I like to use
three different stones and often use
diamonds for accents, to create
contrast in one piece. I also com-


'-
.**."


bine cut and uncut stones as well."
Another interesting aspect of
Svedberg's work is a modular
approach, where one piece can be
taken apart into various sections,
worn in different combinations, or
combined with sections of another
piece. A lovely example of this is a
pendant called Chrysalis, in which
the pearl necklace can be replaced
by a gold chain, and the side
"wings" of petrified wood with
opal highlights set in gold can be
taken off and worn as earrings,
leaving the central opal drop on its
own. Svedberg also does this with
hoop earrings that can be adorned
with different drops that are inter-
changeable.
Custom work also appeals to
Svedberg: "Some clients have a
stone they want to use or they
want me to design a piece for
them. This gives me free reign,
and I love the one-to-one contact
with people."

exhibit at Les Artisans, rue Gener-

Match Becomes Marche U


It first opened in 1985 as
"Gourmet Shop," then it
became "Match" followed
by "Supermarche Match."
On Wednesday, March 3,
this supermarket in St Jean
reopened with another new
name: Marche U. Formerly
owned by the Belgian
group, Cora Louis Del-
haize, this 800 sq meter
store has been taken over
by Jean-Paul Chevreul and
his family, who already
own two Systeme U mar-
kets in Mayenne, in the
western part of France.
Chevreul, who specializes
in fresh foods, has 40 years
of experience in the food
distribution business,
including 15 within the
System U, a group of
independent retailers. He
has ensured the direction
of the market in St Barth to

Fourth Largest
French Food Chain
With 900 stores in France
and French Overseas Terri-
tories, Systeme U is the
fourth largest food group
in France, yet it is atypical
as it is made up of a group
of independent retailers


who work together as a
cooperative with national
purchasing power. As such,
each of the individual own-
ers works independently
but depends on a board of
directors, which oversees
the organization and image
of the group.
The change from Match to
Marche U should please
local customers who will
find at least one thousand
new items, including prod-
ucts developed especially
by System U: Saveurs U,
Produits U, Bios U (organ-
ic), and a line of low-price
items, "Bien Vu."

Xavier Lucchesi

Interior Landscapes


What does a photographer
use instead of a camera?
In the case of French pho-
tographer Xavier Lucchesi
the answer is an X-ray
machine, as for the past 10
years he has combined his
scientific and artistic inter-
ests, using this medical
technology to create sur-
prising beautiful, often
poignant images. His work
was seen in Saint Barth in
2008, but his exhibit of
eight X-ray photographs at
the art gallery in the lobby
of the Tom Beach Hotel in
St Jean marks the artist's
first personal visit to the
island, and from the looks
of things, he'll be back.

Organized by curator
Valentine de Badereau, the
exhibit features a combi-
nation of X-ray portraits
taken of individuals, as
well as x-rays of a 1951
Picasso painting, Massacre
in Korea: all of which


reveal what is under the
surface. In fact, Lucchesi
has been working with Le
Louvre Museum in Paris,
x-raying the art. "You can
see all the layers under-
neath the final painting.
It's very revealing," he
says.


"Korea unit evokes Me theme of Yin and Yang Dy comn
ning the blue and red colors of North and South Korea,
united into one image.


Once he left his career as a
fashion and advertising
photographer, Lucchesi
found that the X-ray tech-
nique suited his artistic
intentions. In 1993 he
went to a hospital in
Moscow, where he made
X-rays of ordinary people,
soldiers, and various
objects such as caviar and
vodka. For Lucchesi, this
was a way to "show the
changes from the days of
Soviet Russia." As an
artist working in a Paris
hospital, Lucchesi notes
that the staff loved him: "I
was the only one not talk-
ing about illness. They
were also fascinated with
the images."

His goal with the X-ray art
is to "get beneath the sur-
face and see the interior
landscape" of the person
or object, and in revealing
what is hidden, there are
often surprises: an X-ray
of a sculpture by Picasso


revealed a small figurine
buried inside. When x-ray-
ing objects he says: "You
get past their role and see
how they are made, and
what's inside." When
doing X-ray portraits of
individuals, they each
bring an object that is
meaningful to them, and it
shows up as part of their
body. Contemporary digi-
tal X-ray techniques allow
these images to have
strong, saturated colors, as
well as variations in light-
ing, and they do not echo
the look of typical medical
imagery. The size of Luc-
chesi's images ranges
from 2'x2' to 4'4 '.

Lucchesi is leaving St
Barth and heading to Expo
2010 in Shanghai in May
where he has been invited
as a guest of honor, taking
his futuristic X-ray images
to Asia, where he is
intrigued by the Buddhist
sense of wellbeing, as
compared to the capitalis-
tic sense of never having
enough no matter what we
have. Perhaps his X-ray
portraits will help people
to see what's inside: to see
what really counts. Take a
look at his work at Tom
Beach and see for your-
self.

2 2S S t tB B a a r r t t h h W W e e e e k k l l y y n n ¡ ¡ 1 1 9 9 3 3"The level of interest was phenomenal once again," says Hank Halsted, managing director, Bucket Regattas, LLC, about the 2010 St Barth Bucket, taking place March 26-28, 2010. "We had 55 applications this year, but preferring to grow the event organically and not too much at one time, we decided to accept up to 40 yachts.We actually have 39, but in the end it's about the quality of the event, not just the number of boats. Even with that number, we feel it's time to be as good as we possibly can at managing the onwater racing and particularly the safety between the super-yachts." With that in mind, Peter Craig of Premiere Racing Inc. will be the Bucket's first PRO (professional race officer), in what Halsted calls "a very exciting move forward for the Bucket. Peter will be responsible for all on-water activities of the Bucket; courses, buoys, start/finish, all chase and safety boats." Craig will work with Ernest Brin, director of the Port Gustavia, and the organizing race committee, so that the racing is done to the best, professional standard. In order to keep the sense of fun in the event, Halsted notes: "We need to balance the rules, and make sure we keep it wholesome sportsmanship and not just blood and guts racing." Yet some news rules have been established, including new safety protocol, that most of the fleet is happy to hear about. "The traditional rules of sailing assume that sailboats can turn or stop quickly, but these rules were written for smaller boats. Some of these are "ships" of 500+ tons, and we need to make allowances for them to participate safely. It is a delicate balance to keep the racing spirit alive," Halsted notes.? One of the new rules requires a distance of 40 meters between the boats at all times: "That's a boat length," points out Halsted. "These boats when being raced, can keel over and the mast length is an issue, adding an extra 15 meters of width. Also if one of these boats loses control, the 40 meters disappears very quickly." Another new rule: faster boats must pass outside the slower boats at turning marks. "We are not trying to encourage arguments," Halsted adds. "We have organized 24 years of Buckets without a single official protest hearing. We don't want to go there, but we will if we get reports of unsportsmanlike behavior. Boats could be excused from future Buckets for bad behavior. We like to settle our arguments over competitive advantage with a case of chilled champagne and if the champagne is good enough you might win your complaint," he says with a chuckle. "But a serious complaint will be treated seriously. Once the rules are understood, we are still here to have fun. But one major collision and the race would end." The Bucket is also employing lots of new safety tools, including communication between boats via VHF to share their intentions, and so that competing boats can make safe crossings. Another improvement is the AIS radar tool, which identifies the position of all the boats and their course and speed, so each boat knows what the others are doing and can avoid collisions. In addition each boat has to have not only a professional tactician, but also a safety tactician, to monitor the safe course the boat is sailing on, and interact with the captain and tactician to keep the boats sailing safely. Highlights of the 2010 Bucket: Not only an incredible fleet of 39 extraordinary sailboats, but also the kinetic ballet of two J-Boat replicas, newcomer Hanuman (winner of the 2009 New Year's Eve Regatta in St Barth) and Ranger, a frequent Bucket participant, racing against each other. Halsted says the Bucket organizers are trying to come up with a life-packÑ or first aid tool for saving livesÑfor the De Bruyn hospital. "That's our donation this year. We want to find the right equipment and bring it with us," explains Halsted. Prior donations have included small sailboats for the St Barth Sailing School and funds to purchase computers to the local junior high school. "It's nice for us to leave something behind that's meaningful every year," Halsted concludes. What's on the horizon for the Bucket Regattas: After the great 15th anniversary expected here this year, 2011 marks the 25th anniversary of the very first Nantucket Bucket, the original Bucket Regatta. Could a reprise of the Nantucket Bucket be on the drawing boards?

S S t tB B a a r r t t h h W W e e e e k k l l y y n n ¡ ¡ 1 1 9 9 3 3 3 3Asmall depression around the Northern Islands on Wednesday, February 24, caused problems for two boats: an 86'motor yacht close to the coast of Anse des Cayes, and a 32'sailboat anchored near Corossol. The winds were coming from the southwest (which is unusual) at an average of 18-24mph, with gusts up to 40mph, causing swells from the southwest of 4.5'to 6.5', against which the outer harbor is not protected. Asailboat baptized "Spirit" was anchored near Corossol, but sank under the weight of the waves. By late Wednesday afternoon, only its mast remained visible, and the task of pulling it up from under the sea began on Thursday morning. Today, "Spirit" is once again afloat. Seeking shelter from these unusual high seas, quite a few large boats headed toward the less exposed bays of Anse des Cayes and Saint Jean. Alas, after rains associated with the depression around 8pm Wednesday evening, the wind and waves shifted slightly to the north, causing some of the boats to pivot. At that moment, "Front Row," an 86'motor yacht flying the flag of the Cayman Island and anchored at Anse des Cayes, ran into trouble. The captain used the motors to try and get free, but to no use: the yacht was caught on the reef less than 10 feet from the shore. The SNSM Rescue Boat, after several attempts, was able to free this 74-ton vessel. Damage: the motors were intact but the propellers were in bad shape along with the stabilizers. The boat was towed to Saint Martin on Friday by the SNSM.

But her love of stones and metals turned Lisa Svedberg into a jeweler. "I started collecting rocks as a kid," she recalls. "Metal working is a vehicle to working with the rocks." Of course, she is no longer playing with the rocks she might have found as a child, but with fiery opals from Mexico, languid aquamarines, smoky pearls, seductive citrine, and deep blue lapis lazuli, set with precision in a series of pieces currently on display at Les Artisans in Gustavia. "I starting out working in a jewelry store and the owner saw that I was bored. He gave me a box of scrap gold to play with and that was it." Svedberg's inspiration is found in ancient art and architecture, and these influences can be seen in her work. "I spent 10 years in London looking at collections at museums like the Victoria and Albert, she notes. "I developed an affinity for ancient Egyptian art especially." Aspects of this interest echo in the sculptural side of Svedberg's pieces, although she admits to being inspired by natural forms as well. Using 18k and 22k gold, as well as platinum, to mount her stones, Svedberg admits: "the stones choose me, but I love to collect them. I have more than I'll ever use in one lifetime." She attends a gem show in Tucson, Arizona every year or dealers visit her studio, bringing pieces she may eventually cut or hand-carve herself. "I look for a lot of light, scintillation, or a pinpoint of fire when choosing a stone," she explains. "I do not like pale stones but prefer intense colors, a real saturation." She often combines stones in one piece, creating interesting juxtapositions of bright colors, or different stones with the same hue: "I like to use three different stones and often use diamonds for accents, to create contrast in one piece. I also combine cut and uncut stones as well." Another interesting aspect of Svedberg's work is a modular approach, where one piece can be taken apart into various sections, worn in different combinations, or combined with sections of another piece. Alovely example of this is a pendant called Chrysalis, in which the pearl necklace can be replaced by a gold chain, and the side "wings" of petrified wood with opal highlights set in gold can be taken off and worn as earrings, leaving the central opal drop on its own. Svedberg also does this with hoop earrings that can be adorned with different drops that are interchangeable. Custom work also appeals to Svedberg: "Some clients have a stone they want to use or they want me to design a piece for them. This gives me free reign, and I love the one-to-one contact with people."

On Wednesday, March 3, this supermarket in St Jean reopened with another new name: MarchŽ U. Formerly owned by the Belgian group, Cora Louis Delhaize, this 800 sq meter store has been taken over by Jean-Paul Chevreul and his family, who already own two Systme U markets in Mayenne, in the western part of France. Chevreul, who specializes in fresh foods, has 40 years of experience in the food distribution business, including 15 within the Systme U, a group of independent retailers. He has ensured the direction of the market in St Barth to his daughter Julie, who is already familiar with the island. After 10 years at Systme U, including three as a manager, she took a little break in St Barth with her brother Sam, who runs the Form Fitness gym in Lurin. Maxime, who is the youngest of the family at 23, is also part of this family affair, taking on the administrative, accounting, and information technology facets of the business. Fourth Largest French Food ChainWith 900 stores in France and French Overseas Territories, Systme U is the fourth largest food group in France, yet it is atypical as it is made up of a group of independent retailers who work together as a cooperative with national purchasing power. As such, each of the individual owners works independently but depends on a board of directors, which oversees the organization and image of the group. The change from Match to MarchŽ U should please local customers who will find at least one thousand new items, including products developed especially by Systme U: Saveurs U, Produits U, Bios U (organic), and a line of low-price items, "Bien Vu."

The evening before, this master of Hawaiian slack guitar gave a solo performance during a special dinner at Le Ga•ac restaurant at Le Toiny hotel. That Sunday, the LedŽe twins, Henri and Leon, invited the Makana Trio and almost 100 friends to a paella party at "la paillotte de la fatigue" in Petit Cul de Sac, for a final opportunity to hear the trio play before they flew back to Hawaii. For those who missed the concert and those who want to hear more, Makana's CDs are on sale Backstage Music in Saint Jean.It only took a few hours on the afternoon of Saturday, February 27, for approximately 50 men, women, and children to fill two 40' containers acquired by the Lions Club of Saint BarthŽlemy. Their destination: victims of the earthquake that destroyed much of Haiti on January 12. More than 120 cubic meters of tools, construction materials, clothing, mattresses, tarps, and other necessities and non-perishable goods were assembled and readied for expedition thanks to the ongoing generosity of the population. Yet due to lack of space in the containers and storage facilities, many donations could not be accepted and some people took their boxes home again. The Lions Club apologies for any inconvenience and asks everyone to save their donations for the next collection. In fact, the local service club is already looking for another 40'container to fill, and when they are ready, an announcement will be made in the newspaper and on the radio.

S S t tB B a a r r t t h h W W e e e e k k l l y y n n ¡ ¡ 1 1 9 9 3 3 9 9 What does a photographer use instead of a camera? In the case of French photographer Xavier Lucchesi the answer is an X-ray machine, as for the past 10 years he has combined his scientific and artistic interests, using this medical technology to create surprising beautiful, often poignant images. His work was seen in Saint Barth in 2008, but his exhibit of eight X-ray photographs at the art gallery in the lobby of the Tom Beach Hotel in St Jean marks the artist's first personal visit to the island, and from the looks of things, he'll be back. Organized by curator Valentine de Badereau, the exhibit features a combination of X-ray portraits taken of individuals, as well as x-rays of a 1951 Picasso painting, Massacre in Korea: all of which reveal what is under the surface. In fact, Lucchesi has been working with Le Louvre Museum in Paris, x-raying the art. "You can see all the layers underneath the final painting. It's very revealing," he says. Once he left his career as a fashion and advertising photographer, Lucchesi found that the X-ray technique suited his artistic intentions. In 1993 he went to a hospital in Moscow, where he made X-rays of ordinary people, soldiers, and various objects such as caviar and vodka. For Lucchesi, this was a way to "show the changes from the days of Soviet Russia." As an artist working in a Paris hospital, Lucchesi notes that the staff loved him: "I was the only one not talking about illness. They were also fascinated with the images." His goal with the X-ray art is to "get beneath the surface and see the interior landscape" of the person or object, and in revealing what is hidden, there are often surprises: an X-ray of a sculpture by Picasso revealed a small figurine buried inside. When x-raying objects he says: "You get past their role and see how they are made, and what's inside." When doing X-ray portraits of individuals, they each bring an object that is meaningful to them, and it shows up as part of their body. Contemporary digital X-ray techniques allow these images to have strong, saturated colors, as well as variations in lighting, and they do not echo the look of typical medical imagery. The size of Lucchesi's images ranges from 2'x2'to 4'x4'. Lucchesi is leaving St Barth and heading to Expo 2010 in Shanghai in May where he has been invited as a guest of honor, taking his futuristic X-ray images to Asia, where he is intrigued by the Buddhist sense of wellbeing, as compared to the capitalistic sense of never having enough no matter what we have. Perhaps his X-ray portraits will help people to see what's inside: to see what really counts. Take a look at his work at Tom Beach and see for yourself.

S SE E E E N N I I N NS ST TB BA A R R T T H H When the land in Saline, where she lived since 1998, was literally sold out from under her hooves, the 27-year-old donkey, Marguerite, moved on Sunday, February 21, to the home of Anatole, a fellow donkey 10 years her junior. Leaving Saline at 8am, this "she-ass" arrived in Saint Jean where Anatole resides, at 10am. Accompanied by her caretaker, Balthazar, this equine made the trip under soft rain, and took a shortcut across the beach in St Jean to reach her new paddock and pasture behind the old airport. Born in Saint Eustatius, Marguerite arrived in Saint BarthŽlemy by boat at the age of three. Before living behind Esprit Saline, she lived in Merlette then in Saint Jean near Le Glacier. As one can see in the photos, the first meeting between Anatole and Marguerite was rather sweet.
