Swedish Ambassador In Saint Barth


Gunnar Lund is the third
Swedish ambassador to
visit Saint Barth. The last
appearance by an official
representative of the
Swedish crown dates back
a visit by ambassador
Franck Belfrag in May
2003.

Accompanied by his wife,
Kari Lotsberg, Gunnar
Lund's trip to the French
Antilles began with two
days in Martinique where
he met Swedish consul
Philippe Despointes. A for-
mer minister for internation-
al economic affairs and
financial markets at the
Swedish Ministry of Fiance
from 2002-2005, Lund then
went to Guadeloupe where


Swedish ambassador Gunnar Lund (center) with left to
right: Bruno Magras, Jacques Simonnet, Michel Magras,
and Dantes Magras. Cecile Lucot


prefect Jean-Luc Fabre and
Lucette Michaux-Chevry
met with him. He arrived in
St Barth on November 5,
where he was welcomed by
the island's Swedish consul
Dantes Magras, who had
organized a cocktail party


with officials and members
of the island's small perma-
nent Swedish population,
which numbers about 20
people. Jacques Simonnet,
prefect for the Northern
Island, Bruno Magras, pres-
ident of the Collectivity,
senator Michel Magras,
French-Swedish council
member Nils Dufau (also
president of ASBAS), and
Swedish historian Per
Tingbrand were among the
guests. The next day, Lund
paid visit to the cemetery in
Public where there is a his-
toric Swedish section, and


to the cemetery in Lorient
and the tomb of former
Swedish governor Nordling
and his family. He then met
Marius Stakelborough in his
personal museum, before
attending the opening of the
Swedish Design Centre, run
by Susanna and Nils Pass-
burg, which features the
work of Swedish designers
and artists, in its new home
in Gustavia.

This visit to St Barth also
allowed Lund to visit the
Swedish consulate on the
island, in the Brigantine
building in Gustavia, where
various topics were dis-
cussed, including the sup-
port of French-Swedish
relations, the renovation of
former governor Nordling's
tomb, restoration of the
signs indicating the old
Swedish names of the
streets in Gustavia, and the
current renovation of the
Airport Gustaf III, "a name
which makes the Swedes
very proud," confided the
Swedish consul.

WimcoSBH:

Wimco's New On-Island Real Estate Partner


The exclusive representative for Sibarth
in the United States since 1983, Wimco
has announced a new partnership with
the company SAS WSBH. Run by
Fabienne Le Gall, this new real estate
agency will now represent Wimco in
Saint Barth6lemy under the banner of
WimcoSBH. This new agency will
manage Wimco's local, seasonal villa
rentals in Saint Barth, and provide
concierge services to their clients. For
this first season, WimcoSBH has a staff
of 10 people to take care of arrivals,
concierge services, and interface with
villa owners. For now, the WimcoSBH
office is at L'Agence, run by Fabienne
Le Gall who will maintain her primary
activity of real estate sales. WimcoSBH
will shortly move into new offices, also
in Saint Jean. Interviewed the day after
this announcement, Le Gall says she is
"pleased to share this new adventure
with Wimco. We are anxious to tell vil-
la owners who we are and that we are


hear for them. To help with this goal,
we have established a special area on
our website, www.wsbh.fr, which
allows them real-time access to villa
rentals and the possibility to chat with
us via an internal messaging system."
WimcoSBH also promises to pay spe-
cial attention to their client's needs via a
high-quality concierge service designed
to help make every visit to the island an
unforgettable experience. All clients
will also be invited to a weekly cocktail
party during their stay in Saint
Barthelemy. "This is an exceptional
time of transition for Wimco and its
clients," explains Tim Warburton, presi-
dent and general director of Wimco,
based in Newport RI. "The launching
of this new company run by Fabienne
Le Gall has the promise of a stronger
collaboration with our clients, under the
same "Wimco" brand. In fact, this
direct partnership without an intermedi-
ary between Wimco and WimcoSBH,


services for clients and owners will be
simplified," added Warburton, via
email last week. Concerning the rela-
tionship with Sibarth, Walburton
explained: "Wimco is pleased to have
collaborated with Sibarth for the past
27 years. Together these two companies
contributed to the development of the
villa rental and tourism industry in
Saint Barth6lemy. At the beginning of
this year, Sibarth expressed its desire to
modify the terms of our long-term part-
nership. Unfortunately we found the
new conditions and business outlook to
be unacceptable. That's the reason we
have adopted a new strategy and decid-
ed to launch WimcoSBH, making
Wimco independent from here on in.
We wish Sibarth all the best for the
future continuation of its activities,"
concludes the president of Wimco, indi-
cating his desire to personally invest in
the success of WimcoSBH during this
inaugural season.

LET'S DANCE ON THE BEACH


The Annual Eden Rock New Year's Eve Party,

the best place to be on December 31!


Dancing on the
beach at Eden
Rock's annual
New Year's Eve party
has become an absolute
"must" in Saint Barths,
and a highpoint of the
holiday season. To ring
in 2011, this very hip,
very chic party features
Jesse Marco, a 22-year
old DJ from New York,


who will spin sheer
magic on the turntables,
as music and cham-
pagne set the scene for
an unforgettable
evening.

The idea for this soiree
was born at the request
of Eden Rock's clients
who wanted the hotel to
organize an "AfterPar-
ty," so they could dance


the night away under the
stars after a fabulous
meal at On The Rocks,
the hotel's gourmet
restaurant. Add this
great <> to a
delicious dinner in one
of the best restaurants
on the island, and you
have a New Year's Eve
experience that can't be
beat.

After organizing numer-
ous private events
together, it became
apparent to the staff of
Eden Rock and D&K
Events that they should
join forces to organize
the now famous
ST BARTHS NEW
YEAR'S EVE PARTY
AT EDEN ROCK.

This two-part event first


took shape in 2007, pri-
marily as a private event
held in the hotel's beach
restaurant. The success
of this first party saw
the next year's event
expand and take over
part of the beach as
well, as it became "The
Biggest Beach Party" on
the island. The second
and third editions were
even more fun, and
open to the public,
except for a special VIP
area, where reservations
were required.

Under the aegis of a team
of technical the
fourth edition on December
31, 2010 promises to once
again be a truly magical
night, dancing on the
beach, your feet in the sand,
to the music of DJ Jesse

Not everyone who comes to Saint Barth
does something nice for the island, but on
Thanksgiving 2010 John McGinn from
New York will do just that! McGinn,
David Steward, and a few other friends
will meet on Thursday, November 25 at
9am in Grand Fond, as they have done
for the past few years, dedicating part of
their vacation to a beach-cleaning expe-
dition. "We usually park in the little lot
near the bend and get started right
away," says McGinn. "Anyone who
shows up should just go the beach an
look for the crazy people with bags!" The
"beach-combers" walk towards Morne
Rouge and Saline. "This is a totally
casual, relaxed event-more of a walk on
the beach," says McGinn, who hopes
some island residents will join in as well.
"Mostly we concentrate on plastic items,
bottles and caps, bags, ropes, etc," he
says, noting that anyone is welcome and
should bring water, sunscreen, and,
ideally, their own bag to put things in.
Rendezvous for the annual Thanksgiving
cleanup!

one minute faster
than his last
attempt. "My goal
was to finish in less
than 3h30. All was
going well until the
23rd mile when I
got cramps in both
legs and it cost me
six minutes! What a
tough course -the
last three miles
were the worst with what felt like the
never-ending incline of 5th Avenue."
Hill trains throughout the year, run-
ning 25 to 30 miles per week,
increasing the distance progressively
each week until he hits a peak of 40
miles about three weeks before the
marathon. He is also the proud new

This weekend its sails up for the Saint Barth Cata Cup: 45 sport catamarans will set sail from the beach in St Jean for various courses around the island over three days of official racing during the third edition of the Saint Barth Cata Cup, November 19-21, 2010. The first day of racing is Friday, November 19, with a record number of 45 duos competing in the third edition of this major event for Formula 18 catamaras. Now considered one of the 10 most important events for this class of boats, the Cata Cup is also distinguished by the quality of its organization and the number of participants. Already notable last season, this years roster promises some great racing thanks to the presence of four world champions: Olivier Backès, 2010 world champion who is participating for the first time; Misha Heemskerk, 2008 world champion, and winner of the 2009 edition of the Saint Barth Cata Cup; Jean-Christophe Mourniac, 2006 champ whose teammate is St Barths adopted son, Kristoffer Jonsson. Completing this foursome of top racers is Emmanuel Boulogne, world champion in 1998 and the first Frenchman to earn the title. Participating in the Cata Cup for the third time, he will sail with Tanguy Kervyn, recreating the winning team in 2008. A spokesman for the event in Europe, and owner of the shipyard Boulogne Conception Marine, Emmanuel Boulogne will be on the only team racing aboard the latest model in the Cirrus series, the Cirrus R, built in his boatyard. In addition to this impressive lineup of champions, the event has attracted other top names in the sport as well, such as Enrique Figueroa from Puerto Rico, Belgian Patrick Demesmaeker (3rd in 2009, beating Emmanuel Boulogne) and the 2010 Italian champion, Ugo Ferrari, as part of six Italian tandems marking the first entries from this country in the Saint Barth Cata Cup. There are also three duos from the United States, making it the eighth country to be represented in the event. They include John Casey, who raced with Carrie Howe last year, but returns with his usual partner, Dalton Tebo, and a duo from the Red Gear Sailing Team, accompanied by their coach. Last, but not least, there is a family competing in the race: Eric and Marie Hainneville, the father and mother; plus their two sons, Charles and Maxime, aboard a second F18 cat. Both under the age of 20, these young stars placed third in the 2010 French championships. The veterans had better take notice! Weekly Kicks Off Eighth Season! The new winter season has begun, and we are back on the scene with the first issue of the St. Barth Weekly, now in its eighth year. Covering the island from all angles, The Weekly allows you to keep your finger on the pulse of local politics, news, arts, and cultural events. Whether you come to the island frequently or are a first-time visitor, The Saint Barth Weekly, the baby brother of the Journal de Saint Barth, is the only full English language publication on the island. The Weekly is free and comes out every Friday, from now through the summer. Pick up a copy at your hotel, at the tourist office in Gustavia, or at numerous restaurants and boutiques. Once you leave the island you can stay in touch by reading The Weekly’s online version at stbarthweekly.com Saint Barth Cata Cup 2010 © : Pierrick Contin

St Barth Weekly n4Gunnar Lund is the third Swedish ambassador to visit Saint Barth. The last appearance by an official representative of the Swedish crown dates back a visit by ambassador Franck Belfrag in May 2003. Accompanied by his wife, Kari Lotsberg, Gunnar Lunds trip to the French Antilles began with two days in Martinique where he met Swedish consul Philippe Despointes. A former minister for international economic affairs and financial markets at the Swedish Ministry of Fiance from 2002-2005, Lund then went to Guadeloupe where prefect Jean-Luc Fabre and Lucette Michaux-Chevry met with him. He arrived in St Barth on November 5, where he was welcomed by the islands Swedish consul Dants Magras, who had organized a cocktail party with officials and members of the islands small permanent Swedish population, which numbers about 20 people. Jacques Simonnet, prefect for the Northern Island, Bruno Magras, president of the Collectivity, senator Michel Magras, French-Swedish council member Nils Dufau (also president of ASBAS), and Swedish historian Per Tingbrand were among the guests. The next day, Lund paid visit to the cemetery in Public where there is a historic Swedish section, and to the cemetery in Lorient and the tomb of former Swedish governor Nordling and his family. He then met Marius Stakelborough in his personal museum, before attending the opening of the Swedish Design Centre, run by Susanna and Nils Passburg, which features the work of Swedish designers and artists, in its new home in Gustavia. This visit to St Barth also allowed Lund to visit the Swedish consulate on the island, in the Brigantine building in Gustavia, where various topics were discussed, including the support of French-Swedish relations, the renovation of former governor Nordlings tomb, restoration of the signs indicating the old Swedish names of the streets in Gustavia, and the current renovation of the Airport Gustaf III, a name which makes the Swedes very proud, confided the Swedish consul.Swedish Ambassador In Saint Barth Left to right: Salinne Passburg, Kari Lotsberg, Gunnar Lund, Susanna Passburg, Dantes Magras, Nils Passburg.

The exclusive representative for Sibarth in the United States since 1983, Wimco has announced a new partnership with the company SAS WSBH. Run by Fabienne Le Gall, this new real estate agency will now represent Wimco in Saint Barthlemy under the banner of WimcoSBH. This new agency will manage Wimcos local, seasonal villa rentals in Saint Barth, and provide concierge services to their clients. For this first season, WimcoSBH has a staff of 10 people to take care of arrivals, concierge services, and interface with villa owners. For now, the WimcoSBH office is at LAgence, run by Fabienne Le Gall who will maintain her primary activity of real estate sales. WimcoSBH will shortly move into new offices, also in Saint Jean. Interviewed the day after this announcement, Le Gall says she is pleased to share this new adventure with Wimco. We are anxious to tell villa owners who we are and that we are hear for them. To help with this goal, we have established a special area on our website, www.wsbh.fr, which allows them real-time access to villa rentals and the possibility to chat with us via an internal messaging system. WimcoSBH also promises to pay special attention to their clients needs via a high-quality concierge service designed to help make every visit to the island an unforgettable experience. All clients will also be invited to a weekly cocktail party during their stay in Saint Barthelemy. This is an exceptional time of transition for Wimco and its clients, explains Tim Warburton, president and general director of Wimco, based in Newport RI. The launching of this new company run by Fabienne Le Gall has the promise of a stronger collaboration with our clients, under the same Wimco brand. In fact, this direct partnership without an intermediary between Wimco and WimcoSBH, services for clients and owners will be simplified, added Warburton, via email last week. Concerning the relationship with Sibarth, Walburton explained: Wimco is pleased to have collaborated with Sibarth for the past 27 years. Together these two companies contributed to the development of the villa rental and tourism industry in Saint Barthlemy. At the beginning of this year, Sibarth expressed its desire to modify the terms of our long-term partnership. Unfortunately we found the new conditions and business outlook to be unacceptable. Thats the reason we have adopted a new strategy and decided to launch WimcoSBH, making Wimco independent from here on in. We wish Sibarth all the best for the future continuation of its activities, concludes the president of Wimco, indicating his desire to personally invest in the success of WimcoSBH during this inaugural season.WimcoSBH: Wimcos New On-Island Real Estate Partner

Dancing on the beach at Eden Rocks annual New Years Eve party has become an absolute must in Saint Barths, and a highpoint of the holiday season. To ring in 2011, this very hip, very chic party features Jesse Marco, a 22-year old DJ from New York, who will spin sheer magic on the turntables, as music and champagne set the scene for an unforgettable evening. The idea for this soiree was born at the request of Eden Rocks clients who wanted the hotel to organize an AfterParty, so they could dance the night away under the stars after a fabulous meal at On The Rocks, the hotels gourmet restaurant. Add this great AfterParty to a delicious dinner in one of the best restaurants on the island, and you have a New Years Eve experience that cant be beat. After organizing numerous private events together, it became apparent to the staff of Eden Rock and D&K Events that they should join forces to organize the now famous ST BARTHS NEW YEARS EVE P ARTY AT EDEN ROCK. This two-part event first took shape in 2007, primarily as a private event held in the hotel s beach restaurant. The success of this first party saw the next years event expand and take over part of the beach as well, as it became The Biggest Beach Party on the island. The second and third editions were even more fun, and open to the public, except for a special VIP area, where reservations were required.Under the aegis of a team of technical genies, the fourth edition on December 31, 2010 promises to once again be a truly magical night, dancing on the beach, your feet in the sand, to the music of DJ Jesse LET’S DANCE ON THE BEACH The Annual Eden Rock New Year’s Eve Party, the best place to be on December 31!

10St Barth Weekly nGrand Fond Cleanup EffortThe 80 participants in this years 10km Gustavialoppet, part of the Swedish Week celebrations in St Barth, included returning runner David Cary from Calgary, Canada, shown here in an interview with Radio Tropik FM, and a foursome from Washington DC and Boston comprising (left to right) Andrew Tolonen, Kathleen Pessolano, Lisa Ellman, and Jeffrey Liszt. Also from the US: Gregoire Decker who lives in Saint Martin and finished in fourth place. Five runners figuratively wearing the colors of Saint Barth were on the starting line for the 41st annual New York City Marathon, one of the biggest in the world, and held as usual the first Sunday in November. The event drew 45,000 participants, including more than 3,000 French runners. Among them, Marcel Lignon and Romain Garin-Laurel (both in the handcycle division), Bruno Cavacas, Philippe Saurel, and Florian Hill either live or have lived in Saint Barth. Florian Hill, son of Catherine Charneau of the Hotel Village St. Jean, also ran a good race, in his second NYC Marathon: 3h36, which is one minute faster than his last attempt. My goal was to finish in less than 3h30. All was going well until the 23rd mile when I got cramps in both legs and it cost me six minutes! What a tough course the last three miles were the worst with what felt like the never-ending incline of 5th Avenue. Hill trains throughout the year, running 25 to 30 miles per week, increasing the distance progressively each week until he hits a peak of 40 miles about three weeks before the marathon. He is also the proud new dad of young Sebastian Bennett Hill, whose initials are, of course, SBH.Not everyone who comes to Saint Barth does something nice for the island, but on Thanksgiving 2010 John McGinn from New York will do just that! McGinn, David Steward, and a few other friends will meet on Thursday, November 25 at 9am in Grand Fond, as they have done for the past few years, dedicating part of their vacation to a beach-cleaning expedition. “We usually park in the little lot near the bend and get started right away,” says McGinn. “Anyone who shows up should just go the beach an look for the crazy people with bags!” The “beach-combers” walk towards Morne Rouge and Saline. “This is a totally casual, relaxed event—more of a walk on the beach,” says McGinn, who hopes some island residents will join in as well. “Mostly we concentrate on plastic items, bottles and caps, bags, ropes, etc,” he says, noting that anyone is welcome and should bring water, sunscreen, and, ideally, their own bag to put things in. Rendezvous for the annual Thanksgiving cleanup!FIVE“SAINTBARTH” RUNNERSINTHE2010 NEWYORKCITYMARATHON NORTHAMERICANSINTHEGUSTAVIALOPPET RESTAURANT LE GAAC ANSEDETOINY0590 29 77 47 ou 0590 27 88 88 Email: legaiac@letoiny.com THANKSGIVING MENUThursday November 26Artichoke and pumpkin raviolis, bacon foam18With olive oil poached turkey, fine mousse of chickpeas served with carrot juice32Cranberry & orange graniteChestnut blinis, chocolate-fig cream, sweet potato sorbet 15Menu 65 uros / per person

St Barth Weekly n°19911 Globetrotters Florence and Manu have opened the new boutique, Sea Spice, in St Jean, and invite you to stop by for a wonderful taste of world travel. They have created an exotic atmosphere where youll find the ready-towear line by French visual artist Jean Claude Le Gall, who has baptized his new collection St BarthŽ even though it was designed in his atelier in St Gilles on Reunion Island. His bright patters are printed on cotton from Mauritius Islands and reflect his inspiration from the isles, as illustrated by the wahine of his logo. Also brimming with flavors, the boutique has at least 50 different spices selected by Flo and Manu, as well as tea, rum, and other special treats from the four corners of the globe. Found in fancy little pots, trial tubes, or vacuum-packed in jute bagsƒ the motif is to find quality spices and new flavors that pay the most possible respect to both mankind and nature (Label USDA Organic). The voyage continues with a collection of island-inspired jewelry, starting with creations by Florence that represent a stalk of sugarcane, the maille de forçat,Ž pineapples, Filao seeds, or even a gold bead. Another collection features various seeds from the islands, coconuts, and bamboo, with prices to please all pocketbooks. Flo and Manu will be your guides as you voyage toward your destination at Sea Spice, a passport to discover the world with an accent on island treasures.

St Barth Properties also takes an active part in island life, with an office located near the Port of Gustavia, and its entire staff was present for the party. This event was also marked the new edition of their publication, “Live Your Dream.” The Jimmy Buffet concert last November, in celebration of the 60th anniversary of Le Select, was the catalyst for this year’s party. Peg Walsh, president of St Barth Properties, says that all their guests loved that weekend. Based on the success of this year’s parry, Walsh envisions making it an annual event every November. The St Barth Properties publication is available at the airport and other distribution points on the island. © Alain Buisson Saint Barth Properties Launches New Season
