15th Annual Saint Barth Bucket


RENDEZVOUS THIS WEEKEND!


The 15th annual Saint Barth Bucket
takes place this weekend with events
on March 25-28. With 39 boats set-
ting a record for the largest fleet, the
2010 edition promises to be spectacu-
lar. One by one the mega-yachts
anchored at the Quai General de
Gaulle and Republique made room
for the sailboats of the Bucket, which
has its kickoff event with the cap-
tains' briefing on Thursday, March 25
at 5:30pm.
Open to yachts over 100' long, the
fleet has a few entries under this size,
of which the smallest is the 76'
WHITE WINGS. Two of the seven
Perini Navi yachts in the Bucket,
RIELA and SALUTE, are among the
largest at 184'.
New participants? DSK, a 90' Swan;
HANUMAN-the J-Class replica
launched in 2009 and winner of the
New Year's Eve Regatta in Saint
Barth; the 100' LIARA by Perfor-
mance Yachts-also launched in
2009; the 184' Perini Navi yacht,
RIELA; and finally TOTO, the 110'
sailboat built in the 1980s by Palmer
Johnson, designed by John G. Alden,
and updated several times.
There are also three former Bucket
winners: METEOR, the 169' Royal
Huisman yacht, which won in 2009:
UNFURLED, the 2002 winner at
112' built by Royal Huisman in 2000;
and ANDROMEDA LA DEA, 154'
Perini Navi yacht renovated in 2006
and the only boat to have won the
Bucket twice, the first edition of the
Saint Barth Bucket in 1996, then
again in 1999, tied with MAN-
DALAY.

Three Days Of Racing
The first day's regatta is on Friday,
March 26 with the boats sailing
around the island in a counterclock-
wise direction. The first starts are
scheduled for 11am.
On Saturday, March 27, the second
regatta is an Olympic triangle around
the little islands north of Saint Barth
(Fourchue, Pele, Boulanger, Bon-


homme, and Fregate). The third and
final regatta, on Sunday, March 28, is
another tour of the island, this time in
a clockwise direction. The starts are
staggered, based on the handicap giv-
en to each boat.

What's New?
For the first time, and to maintain
security and quality to the event, the
Bucket will be hosting Peter Craig of
Premiere Racing Inc, as its first PRO
(professional race officer). "A very
exciting move forward for the Buck-
et," says Hank Halsted, managing
director, Bucket Regattas, LLC.
"Peter will be responsible for all on-
water activities of the Bucket; cours-
es, buoys, start/finish, all chase and
safety boats."

This year, some news rules have also
been established, including new safe-
ty 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 dis-
tance of 40 meters between the boats
at all times. Another new rule: faster
boats must pass outside the slower
boats at turning marks.

The Bucket is also employing lots of
new safety tools, including communi-
cation between boats via VHF to


share their intentions, and so that
competing boats can make safe cross-
ings. Another improvement is the AIS
radar tool, which identifies the posi-
tion 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 tactician, to
monitor the safe course the boat is
sailing on, and interact with the cap-
tain and tactician to keep the boats
sailing safely.

Weather Forecast
If the forecasts on the Windguru web-
site hold true, the weather should be
just perfect for the regattas this week-
end. For the first race on Friday,
winds from the east are called for
with an average of 15 knots and
swells from the east of up to six feet.
Saturday: wind from the east between
13 and 15 knots is expected with
swells from the northeast at five to
six feet. And Sunday, the winds from
the east could fall as low as 12 knots
by early afternoon, with swells from
the niil..! iist ai less than five feet.

The Saint Barth Bucket has become
one of the highlights of the island's
events calendar thanks to the efforts
of Wendy Kronenbergfrom Nautica
FWI and Chantal De Rosny, director
of logistics, working side by side with
Hank Halsted, the Bucket's managing
director based in the US, in close col-
laboration with the C. 1/ in i of
Saint TB, i lo, m- and the Port de
Gustavia.

Bucket as well .-, -i iii the. historic fort.


Security Notice
For all Bucket spectators in boats: It is a
wonderful and rare opportunity to be able
to follow the progress of the Bucket fleet
in your own boat. However, please be
aware that these giant sailboats move at
great speeds and their capacity to maneu-
ver quickly in case of emergency during
the regatta is extremely limited- that is to
say, virtually impossible! Also, please be
careful not get caught in their wake, do not
pass in front of them, and be sure to leave
a maximum of space for them to move
freely. Do not put yourself in a dangerous
position, for your own safety as well as
those in the regatta.

BUCKET 2010
SCHEDULE EVENTS


The first Bucket regatta was organ-
ized in Nantucket, Mass, in August,
1986 by Roger Janes, Captain of the
82' Huisman Ketch, <>�;
Peter Goldstein, owner-Captain of
the 65' Derecktor Sloop, < Goose>, and John Clyde Smith,
Captain of the 92' Bill Garden
designed sloop, <>, to
coincide with <>, owner
Nelson Doubleday's birthday cele-
brations. During an evening that
evolved into a rather torrid Rum
Squall, debate raged as to what each
yacht and crew could accomplish,
and the stage was set for bragging
rights. The following day, seven
yachts sailed the first Nantucket
Bucket, a fifteen mile course in
Nantucket Sound. Recollections are
hazy as to \. acl5, which yacht won,
but records clearly indicate that no
yacht finished worse than seventh.
Between 1986 and 2001, the Nan-
tucket Bucket flourished, becoming
a premier Mega Yacht Regatta that
invited owners and crews of the
world's largest sailing yachts to sail
to peak performance in a safe venue,
in the spirit of wholesome competi-
tion. The concept of pursuit racing
was brought to life by the Bucket,
with each Yacht assigned its own
start time on a clear starting line for
safety, and the start time calibrated
to induce the yacht's speed handicap.
Consequently, the first yacht to cross
the finish line, wins.
Following the announcement that
2001 was to be the last Nantucket
Bucket, the founders passed the
torch to the present Bucket Race
Committee : Hank Halsted, Ian
Craddock and Timothy Laughridge.
The summer venue was shifted in
2002, to Newport, RI, where the
event has since been well hosted by
the Newport Shipyard.

1st Saint Barth Bucket in 1995
The first St. Barths Bucket was
sailed in 1995 with a fleet of 4


yachts : , the 131' S & S
ketch ; 108' Ron Holland ketch,
<> 130' Palmer Johnson
ketch <>, and <>, the
Alden design 127' Ketch.
As with the Nantucket Bucket, the
St. Barth's Bucket concept was
encouraged and fully supported by
Tom Taylor (owner of Gleam) and
Nelson Doubleday (owner of Man-
dalay).
The original organizers Tim Laugh-
ridge (Sariyah), John Clyde-Smith &
Ian Craddock (Mandalay) and Mike
Frierbend (Gleam) arranged a mostly
informal event for the first few
years. Fishing was a big part of the
first races around St. Barths, with
<, the usual winner in that
department.
The turning point came during the
year of the famous LeMans start,
surely a first in any kind of yacht
racing. With the fleet at anchor in
Colombier, one crewmember was
required to drink a Daiquiri then take
a high speed tender ride out to their
vessel. The yachts were required to
sail off their anchor (no engines)
then at the end of the race, sail onto
their anchor for another high speed
tender ride to the beach. For obvious
safety reasons, this was the first and
last time the "LeMans" start/finish
was attempted !
It was at this time the local authori-
ties suggested that it appeared there
was an annual regatta happening on
their island and it would be best for
all involved if the event was formal-
ized with all appropriate permissions
requested and requirements followed
with the hosts, the St. Barths govern-
ment, and the Federation Francaise
de la Voile for formal permission to
hold a Regatta in French Waters.
This was the dawn of the modern
Bucket format. Hank Halsted was
brought in as Managing Director and
with much help from St. Barth's
local, Melanie Smith, the event has
evolved into what it is today.

evolved, the organizers have kept a
tight focus on maintaining the origi-
nal, non-commercial flavor of the
event. Sponsorship is funded exclu-
sively from the Marine Industry. The
major shipyards, Perini Navi, Royal
Huisman Shipyard, Alloy Yachts,
Holland Jachtbouw and Vitter's
Shipyard have been particularly gen-
erous in their sponsorship of the
event. The clear understanding
between the Bucket Race Committee
and all sponsors is that these Regat-
tas present a magnificent opportunity
for networking within the fleet.

Dames class.


From its casual beginning in Nan-
tucket twenty-five years ago to its
most recent iteration at the St.
Barths and Newport Buckets in
2009 -more than 30 megayachts
sailing in magnificent splendor-,
the Bucket has captured sailors'
imagination in a way that no other
event can begin to approach.
To celebrate the forthcoming
twenty-fifth Anniversary of the
Btckci RPgcaias from 1986-2011,
the organizers have asked Captain
Timothy Laughridge, one of the
Bucket directors, to oversee the
publication of a book highlighting
the Regattas' evolution over the
years. Captain Laughridge has
commissioned Concepts Publish-
ing, Inc. to produce the book.
From Nantucket to St. Barths to
Newport, the Bucket has attracted
a growing coterie of devoted par-
ticipants. The book will tell the
Bucket story in their words and
from the perspective of the organ-
izing group and Race Committee;
It will also include more detailed
chapters on how the rating system
for Megayachts was developed,
the issue of safety when racing,
and background information on
the sponsors who contribute sig-
nificantly to its success. And, of
course, a review of the justly
renowned Bucket parties!
Needless to say, the book will
devote much of its space to images
of the Bucket. After all, the allure
of the Bucket lies in the beauty
and majesty of the participants...
The editors welcome and encour-
age contributions from Bucket
participants, past and present.
Contributions can be personal
experiences, anecdotes, and
remembrances of specific Buck-
ets. They're particularly interested
in photos of past Buckets, includ-
ing the Nantucket Bucket and the
early St. Barths and Newport
Buckets.

ELECTRICITY PRODUCTION:


Since the late 1990s the island's population has grown by approximately 20% but the level of electricity produced
has remained stable. Today, there is an urgent need to increase its capacity. How? Yvan Delmas, director of the
EDF for Guadeloupe explains in an interview with the Journal de St Barth:


Journal de St Barth :
What is the current situa-
tion concerning the pro-
duction of electricity in
Saint Barth?
Yvan Delmas: The capacity
of the plant in Public is cur-
rently 21MW, five of which
are produced by generators
when the end-of-the-year
spike is close to 20 MW.
The situation can be quite
critical. Not to mention that
the level of electricity
required grew on an aver-
age of 4.8% from 2000 to
2008, and continues to
increase.

Journal de St Barth:
What is the intention of
the EDF to "relieve" this
situation?
Yvan Delmas: First, before
the end of year, we are
going to increase the
strength of the network,
which will go from 12,500
volts to 20,000 volts. At the
same time, we are going to
reinforce the overall capaci-
ty by adding two new
motors, each of 8MW,
which will be operational
by mid-2012, increasing the
total production to 32MW
The RFP for these new


motors will go out in the
next few weeks, with the
work expected too start in
the second half of the year.
The new motors will be
built where the generators
are currently located.

Journal de St Barth:
What about the use ofsus-
tainable energy and renew-
able sources?
Yvan Delmas: We are obli-
gated to take the reality of
the situation in hand. We
must also align the econom-
ic feasibility with the needs
of the public as well as
industrial robustness. But,
we can't be the only solu-
tion for the island's future.

Here, for the time being, the
only new energies that can
seriously considered are
small wind turbines and
solar panels. Yet both have
their own issues: the wind-
mills create a visual impact
as well as noise, both of
which are a problem on a
small island like Saint
Barth; and the cost of solar
energy is very expensive
here (and it takes four acres
just to produce 1MW)!
Perhaps one day there will
be other sustainable solu-
tions, such as thermal ener-
gy from the sea, but for
now, that remains very
experimental. That said,
there are those who use
solar and wind power, and
we accept them on the grid
and purchase their power as
called for by law. There are
a different set of issues con-
cerning solar energy inte-
grated into a new building,
which I think can play an
important role, on the con-
dition it meets architectural
standards.

Journal de St Barth:
While the number and size


of houses continues to
increase, you have factored
a less rapid increase in
electricity usage over the
next few years. What is
this opinion based on?
Yvan Delmas: In a system
where electricity costs twice
as must to produce than the
price for which it is sold, it
is important to understand
that the best KWh is the one
we don't need to produce!
In addition to the extension
of our production capacity,
we are going to put limita-
tions on usage, yet maintain
the comfort of our clients.
Our goal is to limit the
annual increase in power
consumption to 3.5% until
2015, and 3% after that.

Journal de St Barth: How
do you plan on doing that?
Yvan Delmas: In collabora-
tion with the Collectivity,
we are looking to create a
policy of Demand Side
Management (DSM) for
energy. Solar hot water
heaters are a first step in this
direction, and the Collectiv-
ity has expressed its will-
ingness to set an example in
this area. But DSM can also
be achieved through simple
everyday steps, like using
low energy light bulbs, use
air-conditioning in modera-
tion will doors and win-
dows closed, use cold water
in washing machines, turn
off lights before leaving a
room, or turn off all elec-
tronics and appliances when
not in use. In Guadeloupe,
we have calculated that if
all the nightlights were
turned off, we would save
the output of one motor!

DIDIER SPINDLER, TROPICAL ARTIST


A resident of Saint Barth for the past
four years, visual artist Didier
Spindler has lived in the French
Antilles for over 20 years, first in
Guadeloupe and Les Saintes. His
gallery in Gustavia is a charming
place to discover his colorful can-
vases.
Painting in a West Indian aesthetic, he
has embraced bright colors with a
passion. For Didier, "Happiness is
something that can be shared." That's
why his paintings are like gifts that
share his emotions through his work.
There is not a square inch on his can-
vases not covered with bold, saturat-
ed pigments that dance in the light: he
attacks his work with a fervor that
does not leave space for repentance.
The colors are like the facets of the
artists multiple talents, with blue,
red, turquoise and yellow juxtapose
in cheerful coexistence. Spindler's
canvases explode with the joy of liv-


ing, like fireworks of West Indian
happiness. They are like a window
of happiness, like a smile to start a
great day.
His work can also be seen in galleries
in Les Saintes, Paris, and Morocco.


The Didier Spindler Gallery in Gus-
tavia, located at the corner of Rue
Samuel Fahlberg and Rue du Bord de
Mer, is open from Monday - Friday,
from 4pm-8pm, and all day Saturday.

Atlas Sinks


Une month atter the sink-
ing of Spirit, a sailboat
moored in the bay of
Corossol (when a low-
pressure zone hit the
Northern Islands), another
sailboat sank early Friday
morning, March 19. This
time it was a 35' double-
masted schooner by the
name of Atlas. It seems as
if the anchors gave way
and the sailboat crashed
against the rocks on the lit-


tle island of Gros Ilet.
The crew of Capitaine
Danet, the SNSM rescue
boat, tried to pull the sail-
boat off the rocks but it
sank where it was, inside
the port zone and within
the Marine Park's protect-

Pierre Nuty Says Goodbye
On Friday, March 12, a
cocktail reception honored
Pierre Nuty, director of the
hospitals in St Martin and St
Barth since 2005, on the eve
of his retirement. Guests
included island senator
Michel Magras and Nicole
Greaux, president of the
hospital board and vice
president of the Collectivity
in charge of health care.
Nuty has announced his
retirement for the end of the


year, but to take advantage
of his unused vacation time
he will actually leave the
island very shortly. After a
speech by Pascale Brochier,
administrative attache, who
retraced the 38 years of
Nuty's career with as much
precision as humor, Nicole
Greaux presented Nuty with


the Collectivity's medal of
honor. Nuty then spoke
about his attachment to
these "paradise islands,"
and a staff "totally dedicat-
ed to its mission."
In his own words, he


declared himself "emotional
and out of sorts," and
offered warm thanks to his
wife, to the two health rep-
resentatives that followed
each other -Marie then
Nicole-to Pascale Brochi-


er, his right arm in Saint
Barth, and the entire staff,
noting that he was sorry not
to have been able to spend
more than 20% of his time
on the island during his
career.


GLORIOUS. EXTRAORDINARY, EXQUISITE,

WHIMSICAL, MAGICAL, PERFECT

INSEE Paints A Portrait of the Population:


At the end of January, the
French Institute for Statis-
tics and Economic Studies
(INSEE) published an
analysis of the first quali-
tative results of the census
taken in Saint Barth in
2007. This very interesting
analysis paints an unex-
pected portrait of Saint
Barth.

An Island That
Stands Out!
The title of the chapter in
the INSEE report about
Saint Barth-An Island
That Stands Out- reveals,
Saint Barth is quite differ-


ent from its regional
neighbors. As much by the
average age of its popula-
tion (36.1 years), older
than on neighboring
islands, as by the presence
of a foreign population
essentially European: with
a developed family model
close to what one sees in
Metropolitan France. Also
the employment structure
is different, even if the
service sector represents
more than a 50% majority,
there is also a very active
building trade (20% of all
workers, compared to 7%
in the rest of France).


f - wIw s
A Population
That Is Aging
Moving from an average
age of 34.4 to 36.1 years
since 2006, the population
of Saint Barthelemy seems
to be aging. Yet it is one of
the youngest populations in
France, where the average
is 39.6 years, and in
Guadeloupe the average is
35.8 years. Saint Martin is
perhaps the youngest with
an average age of 29.4
years. The under-20 age-
group represents 21% of
the population on the
island, compared to 31% in
Guadeloupe and 36% in
Saint Martin.

12% Foreigners,
40 Different
Nationalities
According to the INSEE
report, the foreign commu-
nity is essentially European,
and represents 12% of the
population, or roughly
1,000 out of 8,255 resi-
dents. Of the 40 nationali-
ties present, the Portuguese
count for almost half the
foreigners, with almost 500
people. Far behind lag the
Americans, representing
only 8% of the foreign pop-
ulation (close to 80 people),
while an even smaller group
is the Belgians (6%). Barely
11% of the foreign residents
in Saint Barth come from
the Caribbean.

Increase
in Educational Level
The INSEE report also
indicates that the level of


education on the island has
increased and today is
close to the French nation-
al average of 43% with a
high school diploma or
higher. In 1999, this was
true for only 29% of the
population in Saint Barth
but this had risen to 41%
by 2006. For the INSEE,
this augmentation is based
on the migration of 1,900
people from France to
Saint Barth between 1999
and 2006... 53% of which
had a high school diploma,
yet this is not true for
25.4% of the population.

More Active Than
Ever
With 5,000 of the 8,255
residents working-
including 58% of the
men-Saint Barthelemy
has a very active popula-
tion. In the active age
group for working (15-64
years), the average is 83%
(88% for men, 76% for
women), compared to 70%
in metropolitan France! In
this context, 51% work in
the service sector, 20% in
the building trades, and
another 20% in business,
6.5% in industry, and 3%
in agriculture and fishing.
The public sector repre-
sents just 8% of the work
force. If one worker out of
six is an artisan, this repre-
sents an increase of close
to 60% from 1999 to 2006,
while managers and mid-
dle managers are playing a
larger role in the economy.

The 15th annual Saint Barth Bucket takes place this weekend with events on March 25-28. With 39 boats setting a record for the largest fleet, the 2010 edition promises to be spectacular. One by one the mega-yachts anchored at the Quai GŽnŽral de Gaulle and RŽpublique made room for the sailboats of the Bucket, which has its kickoff event with the captains'briefing on Thursday, March 25 at 5:30pm. Open to yachts over 100'long, the fleet has a few entries under this size, of which the smallest is the 76' WHITE WINGS. Two of the seven Perini Navi yachts in the Bucket, RIELAand SALUTE, are among the largest at 184'. New participants? DSK, a 90'Swan; HANUMANÑthe J-Class replica launched in 2009 and winner of the New Year's Eve Regatta in Saint Barth; the 100'LIARAby Performance YachtsÑalso launched in 2009; the 184'Perini Navi yacht, RIELA; and finally TOTO, the 110' sailboat built in the 1980s by Palmer Johnson, designed by John G. Alden, and updated several times. There are also three former Bucket winners: METEOR, the 169'Royal Huisman yacht, which won in 2009: UNFURLED, the 2002 winner at 112'built by Royal Huisman in 2000; and ANDROMEDALADEA, 154' Perini Navi yacht renovated in 2006 and the only boat to have won the Bucket twice, the first edition of the Saint Barth Bucket in 1996, then again in 1999, tied with MANDALAY.Three Days Of RacingThe first day's regatta is on Friday, March 26 with the boats sailing around the island in a counterclockwise direction. The first starts are scheduled for 11am. On Saturday, March 27, the second regatta is an Olympic triangle around the little islands north of Saint Barth (Fourchue, PelŽ, Boulanger, Bonhomme, and FrŽgate). The third and final regatta, on Sunday, March 28, is another tour of the island, this time in a clockwise direction. The starts are staggered, based on the handicap given to each boat.Whats New?For the first time, and to maintain security and quality to the event, the Bucket will be hosting Peter Craig of Premiere Racing Inc, as its first PRO (professional race officer). "Avery exciting move forward for the Bucket," says Hank Halsted, managing director, Bucket Regattas, LLC. "Peter will be responsible for all onwater activities of the Bucket; courses, buoys, start/finish, all chase and safety boats." This year, some news rules have also 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. Another new rule: faster boats must pass outside the slower boats at turning marks. 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.Weather ForecastIf the forecasts on the Windguru website hold true, the weather should be just perfect for the regattas this weekend. For the first race on Friday, winds from the east are called for with an average of 15 knots and swells from the east of up to six feet. Saturday: wind from the east between 13 and 15 knots is expected with swells from the northeast at five to six feet. And Sunday, the winds from the east could fall as low as 12 knots by early afternoon, with swells from the northeast at less than five feet. The Saint Barth Bucket has become one of the highlights of the island's events calendar thanks to the efforts of Wendy Kronenberg from Nautica FWI and Chantal De Rosny, director of logistics, working side by side with Hank Halsted, the Bucket's managing director based in the US, in close collaboration with the Collectivity of Saint BarthŽlemy and the Port de Gustavia.

However, please be aware that these giant sailboats move at great speeds and their capacity to maneuver quickly in case of emergency during the regatta is extremely limitedthat is to say, virtually impossible! Also, please be careful not get caught in their wake, do not pass in front of them, and be sure to leave a maximum of space for them to move freely. Do not put yourself in a dangerous position, for your own safety as well as those in the regatta. Where to watch the regattas• Some of the best spots on the island to watch the Bucket are at the top of Gustavia, Lurin, Grand Fond, Pointe Milou, and Anse des Cayes (the road to Colombier), as well as at the lighthouse above Gustavia, and the lookout point in Colombier.• On Sunday, March 28, Fort Oscar in Gustavia will be open from 8am to 6pm and offers a great spot to watch the start and finish of the final St Barth Bucket regatta this year. This open house has been organized by the Gendarmerie, SNSM Rescue-At-Sea, and the Collectivity of Saint Barth, and includes a snack bar with sandwiches and non-alcoholic beverages, as well as the sale of items to benefit the SNSM. Free to the general public, and a great way to admire the fabulous sailing yachts in the Bucket as well as visit the historic fort. 4 4S 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 5 5

6 6S 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 5 5The first Bucket regatta was organized in Nantucket, Mass, in August, 1986 by Roger Janes, Captain of the 82'Huisman Ketch, ÇVolodorÈ; Peter Goldstein, owner-Captain of the 65'Derecktor Sloop, ÇFlying GooseÈ, and John Clyde Smith, Captain of the 92'Bill Garden designed sloop, ÇMandalayÈ, to coincide with ÇMandalayÈ, owner Nelson Doubleday's birthday celebrations.During an evening that evolved into a rather torrid Rum Squall, debate raged as to what each yacht and crew could accomplish, and the stage was set for bragging rights. The following day, seven yachts sailed the first Nantucket Bucket, a fifteen mile course in Nantucket Sound. Recollections are hazy as to exactly which yacht won, but records clearly indicate that no yacht finished worse than seventh. Between 1986 and 2001, the Nantucket Bucket flourished, becoming a premier Mega Yacht Regatta that invited owners and crews of the world's largest sailing yachts to sail to peak performance in a safe venue, in the spirit of wholesome competition. The concept of pursuit racing was brought to life by the Bucket, with each Yacht assigned its own start time on a clear starting line for safety, and the start time calibrated to induce the yacht's speed handicap. Consequently, the first yacht to cross the finish line, wins. Following the announcement that 2001 was to be the last Nantucket Bucket, the founders passed the torch to the present Bucket Race Committee: Hank Halsted, Ian Craddock and Timothy Laughridge. The summer venue was shifted in 2002, to Newport, RI, where the event has since been well hosted by the Newport Shipyard.1st Saint Barth Bucket in 1995The first St. Barths Bucket was sailed in 1995 with a fleet of 4 yachts: ÇSariyahÈ, the 131'S & S ketch; 108'Ron Holland ketch, ÇGleamÈ130'Palmer Johnson ketch ÇMandalayÈ, and ÇParlayÈ, the Alden design 127'Ketch. As with the Nantucket Bucket, the St. Barth's Bucket concept was encouraged and fully supported by Tom Taylor (owner of Gleam) and Nelson Doubleday (owner of Mandalay). The original organizers Tim Laughridge (Sariyah), John Clyde-Smith & Ian Craddock (Mandalay) and Mike Frierbend (Gleam) arranged a mostly informal event for the first few years. Fishing was a big part of the first races around St. Barths, with ÇGleamÈ, the usual winner in that department. The turning point came during the year of the famous LeMans start, surely a first in any kind of yacht racing. With the fleet at anchor in Colombier, one crewmember was required to drink a Daiquiri then take a high speed tender ride out to their vessel. The yachts were required to sail off their anchor (no engines) then at the end of the race, sail onto their anchor for another high speed tender ride to the beach. For obvious safety reasons, this was the first and last time the "LeMans" start/finish was attempted! It was at this time the local authorities suggested that it appeared there was an annual regatta happening on their island and it would be best for all involved if the event was formalized with all appropriate permissions requested and requirements followed with the hosts, the St. Barths government, and the Federation Francaise de la Voile for formal permission to hold a Regatta in French Waters. This was the dawn of the modern Bucket format. Hank Halsted was brought in as Managing Director and with much help from St. Barth's local, Melanie Smith, the event has evolved into what it is today. As the Bucket Regattas have evolved, the organizers have kept a tight focus on maintaining the original, non-commercial flavor of the event. Sponsorship is funded exclusively from the Marine Industry. The major shipyards, Perini Navi, Royal Huisman Shipyard, Alloy Yachts, Holland Jachtbouw and Vitter's Shipyard have been particularly generous in their sponsorship of the event. The clear understanding between the Bucket Race Committee and all sponsors is that these Regattas present a magnificent opportunity for networking within the fleet.

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 5 59 9A BOOK FOR THE 25THANNIVERSARYFrom its casual beginning in Nantucket twenty-five years ago to its most recent iteration at the St. Barths and Newport Buckets in 2009 -more than 30 megayachts sailing in magnificent splendor-, the Bucket has captured sailors' imagination in a way that no other event can begin to approach. To celebrate the forthcoming twenty-fifth Anniversary of the Bucket Regattas from 1986-2011, the organizers have asked Captain Timothy Laughridge, one of the Bucket directors, to oversee the publication of a book highlighting the Regattas'evolution over the years. Captain Laughridge has commissioned Concepts Publishing, Inc. to produce the book. From Nantucket to St. Barths to Newport, the Bucket has attracted a growing coterie of devoted participants. The book will tell the Bucket story in their words and from the perspective of the organizing group and Race Committee; It will also include more detailed chapters on how the rating system for Megayachts was developed, the issue of safety when racing, and background information on the sponsors who contribute significantly to its success. And, of course, a review of the justly renowned Bucket parties! Needless to say, the book will devote much of its space to images of the Bucket. After all, the allure of the Bucket lies in the beauty and majesty of the participantsÉ The editors welcome and encourage contributions from Bucket participants, past and present. Contributions can be personal experiences, anecdotes, and remembrances of specific Buckets. They're particularly interested in photos of past Buckets, including the Nantucket Bucket and the early St. Barths and Newport Buckets. Please send any and all written material and contact information to Alessandro Vitelli at sandro.bucketregattas@yahoo.com2007: Kaori, the 125'Palmer Johnson-Chuck Paine yacht (formerly Mandalay, winner of the 1999 edition) was once again the winner last year in one of the best regattas since the Bucket was launched in 1996. 2008 : Windrose (Holland Jachtbouw) 152' winner of the 2008 Saint Barth Bucket.

1 1 0 0S 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 5 5Journal de St Barth : What is the current situation concerning the production of electricity in Saint Barth? Yvan Delmas: The capacity of the plant in Public is currently 21MW, five of which are produced by generators when the end-of-the-year spike is close to 20 MW. The situation can be quite critical. Not to mention that the level of electricity required grew on an average of 4.8% from 2000 to 2008, and continues to increase. Journal de St Barth : What is the intention of the EDF to "relieve" this situation? Yvan Delmas: First, before the end of year, we are going to increase the strength of the network, which will go from 12,500 volts to 20,000 volts. At the same time, we are going to reinforce the overall capacity by adding two new motors, each of 8MW, which will be operational by mid-2012, increasing the total production to 32MW. The RFPfor these new motors will go out in the next few weeks, with the work expected too start in the second half of the year. The new motors will be built where the generators are currently located. Journal de St Barth : What about the use of sustainable energy and renewable sources? Yvan Delmas: We are obligated to take the reality of the situation in hand. We must also align the economic feasibility with the needs of the public as well as industrial robustness. But, we can't be the only solution for the island's future. Here, for the time being, the only new energies that can seriously considered are small wind turbines and solar panels. Yet both have their own issues: the windmills create a visual impact as well as noise, both of which are a problem on a small island like Saint Barth; and the cost of solar energy is very expensive here (and it takes four acres just to produce 1MW)! Perhaps one day there will be other sustainable solutions, such as thermal energy from the sea, but for now, that remains very experimental. That said, there are those who use solar and wind power, and we accept them on the grid and purchase their power as called for by law. There are a different set of issues concerning solar energy integrated into a new building, which I think can play an important role, on the condition it meets architectural standards. Journal de St Barth : While the number and size of houses continues to increase, you have factored a less rapid increase in electricity usage over the next few years. What is this opinion based on? Yvan Delmas: In a system where electricity costs twice as must to produce than the price for which it is sold, it is important to understand that the best KWh is the one we don't need to produce! In addition to the extension of our production capacity, we are going to put limitations on usage, yet maintain the comfort of our clients. Our goal is to limit the annual increase in power consumption to 3.5% until 2015, and 3% after that. Journal de St Barth : How do you plan on doing that? Yvan Delmas: In collaboration with the Collectivity, we are looking to create a policy of Demand Side Management (DSM) for energy. Solar hot water heaters are a first step in this direction, and the Collectivity has expressed its willingness to set an example in this area. But DSM can also be achieved through simple everyday steps, like using low energy light bulbs, use air-conditioning in moderation will doors and windows closed, use cold water in washing machines, turn off lights before leaving a room, or turn off all electronics and appliances when not in use. In Guadeloupe, we have calculated that if all the nightlights were turned off, we would save the output of one motor! ELECTRICITY PRODUCTION: Two new motors in 2012 Since the late 1990s the island's population has grown by approximately 20% but the level of electricity produced has remained stable. Today, there is an urgent need to increase its capacity. How? Yvan Delmas, director of the EDF for Guadeloupe explains in an interview with the Journal de St Barth:

This time it was a 35'doublemasted schooner by the name of Atlas. It seems as if the anchors gave way and the sailboat crashed against the rocks on the little island of Gros Ilet. The crew of Capitaine Danet, the SNSM rescue boat, tried to pull the sailboat off the rocks but it sank where it was, inside the port zone and within the Marine Park's protected area. Ernest Brin, director of the Port of Gustavia, reported that there is no pollution related to this incident. Source : Corossol.info Aresident of Saint Barth for the past four years, visual artist Didier Spindler has lived in the French Antilles for over 20 years, first in Guadeloupe and Les Saintes. His gallery in Gustavia is a charming place to discover his colorful canvases. Painting in a West Indian aesthetic, he has embraced bright colors with a passion. For Didier, "Happiness is something that can be shared." That's why his paintings are like gifts that share his emotions through his work. There is not a square inch on his canvases not covered with bold, saturated pigments that dance in the light: he attacks his work with a fervor that does not leave space for repentance. The colors are like the facets of the artists multiple talents, with blue, red, turquoise and yellow juxtapose in cheerful coexistence. Spindler's canvases explode with the joy of living, like fireworks of West Indian happiness. They are like a window of happiness, like a smile to start a great day. His work can also be seen in galleries in Les Saintes, Paris, and Morocco. The Didier Spindler Gallery in Gustavia, located at the corner of Rue Samuel Fahlberg and Rue du Bord de Mer, is open from Monday Ð Friday, from 4pm-8pm, and all day Saturday.

Guests included island senator Michel Magras and Nicole GrŽaux, president of the hospital board and vice president of the Collectivity in charge of health care.

1 1 6 6S 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 5 5At the end of January, the French Institute for Statistics and Economic Studies (INSEE) published an analysis of the first qualitative results of the census taken in Saint Barth in 2007. This very interesting analysis paints an unexpected portrait of Saint Barth.An Island That Stands Out!The title of the chapter in the INSEE report about Saint BarthÑAn Island That Stands OutÑ reveals, Saint Barth is quite different from its regional neighbors. As much by the average age of its population (36.1 years), older than on neighboring islands, as by the presence of a foreign population essentially European: with a developed family model close to what one sees in Metropolitan France. Also the employment structure is different, even if the service sector represents more than a 50% majority, there is also a very active building trade (20% of all workers, compared to 7% in the rest of France).A Population That Is AgingMoving from an average age of 34.4 to 36.1 years since 2006, the population of Saint BarthŽlemy seems to be aging. Yet it is one of the youngest populations in France, where the average is 39.6 years, and in Guadeloupe the average is 35.8 years. Saint Martin is perhaps the youngest with an average age of 29.4 years. The under-20 agegroup represents 21% of the population on the island, compared to 31% in Guadeloupe and 36% in Saint Martin.12% Foreigners, 40 Different NationalitiesAccording to the INSEE report, the foreign community is essentially European, and represents 12% of the population, or roughly 1,000 out of 8,255 residents. Of the 40 nationalities present, the Portuguese count for almost half the foreigners, with almost 500 people. Far behind lag the Americans, representing only 8% of the foreign population (close to 80 people), while an even smaller group is the Belgians (6%). Barely 11% of the foreign residents in Saint Barth come from the Caribbean. Increase in Educational LevelThe INSEE report also indicates that the level of education on the island has increased and today is close to the French national average of 43% with a high school diploma or higher. In 1999, this was true for only 29% of the population in Saint Barth but this had risen to 41% by 2006. For the INSEE, this augmentation is based on the migration of 1,900 people from France to Saint Barth between 1999 and 2006É 53% of which had a high school diploma, yet this is not true for 25.4% of the population.More Active Than EverWith 5,000 of the 8,255 residents workingÑ including 58% of the menÑSaint BarthŽlemy has a very active population. In the active age group for working (15-64 years), the average is 83% (88% for men, 76% for women), compared to 70% in metropolitan France! In this context, 51% work in the service sector, 20% in the building trades, and another 20% in business, 6.5% in industry, and 3% in agriculture and fishing. The public sector represents just 8% of the work force. If one worker out of six is an artisan, this represents an increase of close to 60% from 1999 to 2006, while managers and middle managers are playing a larger role in the economy.
