10 ALLATSEA.NET JANUARY 2014 Editors Log January is upon us and while parts of the world shiver through winter storms, the Caribbean celebrates with sunshine and trade winds. Those of us who live in the islands know that occasionally the trade winds blow with gusto and the resulting seas can make for a gutchurning ride. Anyone who can cook at sea has my respect and in this edition we report on a couple of culinary competitions that feature charter yacht chefs. You might think that cooking in competition while tied to a dock is no big deal, but these heroes of the galley are expected to create wonderful meals all day, every day, even in a seaway. When guests are paying a lot of money for a weeks charter, they expect the chef to produce even if they themselves take one look at the days culinary creations and head for the rail. Having heaped kudos on the heads of the wizards of the charter yacht galleys, its time to praise the less culinary blessed ƒ the cooks who brave the heaving guts of a small sailboat at sea in order to put together wonderful, if sometimes weird, meals. While sailing, I have seen and eaten some interesting creations that perhaps a landsman might have a problem swallowing never mind digesting. I am incredibly lucky in that my wife is an excellent cook and she has a fairly strong stomach, so when we are sailing it is rare we miss a meal at sea. Charter chefs have an advantage; they make fancy food that takes them three days to source and a crew of ten to carry back to the dock. The test comes when you have no refrigeration and your stores consist of dried beans, rusty cans of tomatoes, curry powder and Spam. On a particularly nasty passage, my wife braved the galley to make a cottage pie using instant mashed potato, tinned corned beef and a few ingredients she found rattling and rotting in our depleted food locker. The pie was in the oven when the boat fell off a particularly mean wave. The resulting crash threw open the oven door and hurled the cottage pie across the cabin. With the steaming mess strewn across the grungy oil and sea spattered ”oor, my wife shoveled it up and onto the plates. Staggering from side to side, she then hauled herself into the cockpit and presented me with one of the best meals at sea I have ever had. As we load our boats with more and more electrical devices, so the problem of providing a reliable source of energy increases. Blessed as we are in the Caribbean with wind Gary E. Brown, Editor and sun aplenty, we have a choice between solar power and wind-driven generators or a combination of the two. To help decide what green charging system is best for your boat, All At Sea s technical guru Glenn Hayes put together a two-part series called Wind Vs Solar that considers the merits and drawbacks of each system. I have used wind and solar to charge batteries and always favored wind power. Thanks to Glenns article (p36) describing the latest generation of solar panels, I might have to rethink my strategy. Regatta season seems to start earlier every year, as can be seen by the number of events mentioned in Caribbean News. With so much yachting going on, we thought it time to help you plan ahead. In this months splendid edition you will “nd our Caribbean regatta January to March preview. On page 56, Carol Bareuther encourages kids to take up “shing and the accompanying photographs warm the cockles of this old sailors heart (pun intended). The article reminds us that the world is a beautiful place and no matter what your age, growing up and living by the sea is full of wonder.

The regatta, hosted in the BVI for airline employees, family and friends, took place in October with 22 Moorings boats participating in daily races around the islands. This year the Green Award went to sailors on Wild Irish Rose for collecting the most empty glass bottles in a Drinking Responsibly recycling challenge. The initiative was introduced to help keep glass out of the BVI waste stream and required teams to collect their empty glass bottles and present them at weigh points during the course of the regatta. The members of the winning team with the most weight in glass each took home a sail-shaped, recycled glass trophy specially made for Sol by the Green VI Glass Studio in Cane Garden Bay, Tortola.

JANUARY 2014 ALLATSEA.NET 27 In the November issue of All At Sea Robbie Ferron states that a number of new regattas taking place in the Caribbean are well sponsored events where professionalism and pro“t is now more important than any earlier Corinthian ideals. Whereas this may be true in certain events this is definitely not the case in the RORC Caribbean 600 as Mr Ferron suggests in his article. As a co-founder of this race I can categorically state that the reason that Stan Pearson and I handed over the whole organization of the event to the Royal Ocean Racing Club and the Antigua Yacht Club was to avoid precisely what he is incorrectly suggesting. We believed at the outset (and still do) that this event would bene“t from the ef“cient Corinthian (but professional) nature of the two organizations which in turn would not allow any self interest to depreciate the value of the event. Both the RORC and the Antigua Yacht Club are private yacht clubs, with modest membership fees, whose ethos is to involve their members and other interested parties by organizing well run events … and a very good job they do too. At this time there is no headline sponsor of this particular RORC event …further if one were to be appointed their presence would only be engaged primarily for the sponsors bene“t and to further ensure that the competitors experience and participation is enhanced. In the last edition in February 2013 there were close to 100 volunteers in Antigua who gave up a huge amount of time (day and night) for no reward other than a free T-shirt and some refreshment. How Corinthian is that? The whole event is entirely dependent on these people based in Antigua and all of them, despite the RORC involvement, feel a certain local pride and propriety in this regatta. Any pro“t is re”ected in the success of the regatta … and that lies more simply in the fact that the race is an attractive challenge which sailors aspire to. All are welcome to participate, amateurs and professionals alike, provided the yachts, equipment and crew comply with required standards … and with IRC ratings you can be sure of a level playing “eld. Mr Ferron himself was deeply involved in the Heineken Regatta and he will be well aware that in any world class sailing event you cannot simply rely on the goodwill of everyone. The RORC has a fulltime professional staff that is paid to run all their races (usually some 20 events each year). Getting the team to Antigua to run the event is not cheap. So … as and when sponsors are introduced (as in any RORC event) one aim is to ensure that as few as possible of the organizational costs are passed on to the competitors. Low entry fees, free parties and free prize giving events are the aim„ entirely for the bene“t of the sponsors and sailors participating. The RORC has a long history of professionalism without mercenary gain … Mr Ferron has got it very wrong when he suggests that the RORC Caribbean event is designed for any pecuniary advantage and he is confusing professionalism with commercialism … two entirely different reasons for success. I would also point out that anyone who has ever attended a regatta party at the RORC Caribbean 600 will concur that is attended by children, families, wealthy owners, local volunteers, professional sailors and amateurs alike. To conclude I do agree with some of Mr Ferrons points … there are a number of Caribbean events that do seem to have moved more towards a business model, not least the ARC in its current format. This event is now hardly the ideal originally conceived by Jimmy Cornell. Its success however indicates that many people still want to participate in the event. Bucket Regattas on the other hand are an entirely special case. Large yacht racing regattas cannot safely be run by amateurs … nor can the sophisticated systems seen on todays mega-yachts be managed by part time sailors. But like Mr Ferron I loathe the commercial vanities that have gradually been allowed to creep in to the advantage of certain individuals. This is why I am sure that another of the newer events in the Caribbean, The Antigua Superyacht Challenge, is proving to be such a success. Like the RORC 600 … its aims are low budget, no irrelevant sponsors and no one trying to make an individual or inappropriate pro“t. I believe that all those involved in both regattas have got this part of organizing an event right and long may it prosper.

I have no idea why. Perhaps their mooring pennants rotted, they drifted through the Panama Canal in a daze, and are just now realizing they are far off their DR position„and, well, far, far out too. Another possibility: the nearly deserted isles of Tonga are culturally similar to what the Caribbean was like when they “rst arrived in the Lesser Antilles back in the day. In any event, Im here in Tonga and surrounded by the very same adventurous folks I was once-upon-a-time sat drinking with at Turtle Pier in Sint Maarten; on Hog Island in Grenada; in Le Select on Barths; at Village Cay on Tortola and in Skinnys on St. John.

Currently, KO runs the place„and, yes, KO is a knock-out lady. But Baked in the Sun was founded by a dynamic young bakery-broad by the name of Kim. She was the original driving force behind the business„ which soon turned into a cross between a hip bakery and a Caribbean coffee shop. It was an instant success. The local continentals felt particularly comfortable there„as Kim assisted them with many dif“cult tasks (like counting their change). Kim was perfectly happy and ful“lled and, lets face it, Gloria Steinem was right„a woman needs a man like a “sh needs a bicycle. Enter a devilishly-handsome single-hander named David, who sailed into Coral Bay a few years later on a 29ft wooden sailboat from Florida, and decided it was time for a lifestyle change. Dave is a very straight-ahead young fellow„the type of quiet, unassuming guy who subtly gets what he wants when he wants it without excessive fuss or too much notice. And hed recently decided that„as swell as singlehanded cruising offshore was„he wanted a wife and family too. And, yes, there was one more thing: Dave had a sweet tooth„and found confectionary sugar to be an aphrodisiac. The thing I “nd most admirable about Dave is his straightforwardness, his literalness. He has a clear vision of who he is and where hes going. Thus, when he wanted to put a bun in the oven he marched right into Baked in the Sun asked to see the baker, and, well, the rest is history, as they say. Zack was born nine months later.

32 ALLATSEA.NET JANUARY 2014 Charlie loves wine. Ever since he got a touch of gout he slowed down on his beer drinking and took to wine. The French and Italians loved him more, the Germans and Brits made fun of him and the Americans were ambivalent. But Charlie never became a wine snob. In restaurants he even overlooked the rather ostentatious habit of tasting a drop before pouring for the table. Then, as he began to order a bottle of wine to accompany a meal, he noticed the prices were somewhat out of proportion. A drinkable bottle in the liquor store was $7.00 but was marked up to $45 on the restaurants wine list. A rip off, he thought. One night he took his own bottle and was told by a rather timid waitress that a corkage charge of $15 would be applied to his bill. Corkage!Ž he said angrily, its a screw top.Ž As time went on Charlie understood wines and their qualities better and better. He knew that a full bodied wine was rounded and ”avorful. He understood a white wine that was crisp and dry might well be good company for a heavy “sh dish like turbot with a cream sauce or a lobster thermidor. A strong sweet wine might go well with a dessert. One day Charlie came across a bottle of wine by a little known South African vineyard. The wine in question was completely new. Its name was Femme Facile. The wine was listed in a nautical magazine as being appropriate for clientele that frequented seafood restaurants. As a nautical man, it sounded just up Charlies alley. Then he read the wine tasters expert evaluation: Delicate bouquet of oysters, a nose of fresh mussel, a full bodied ”avor of tuna Sailing Humor BY JULIAN PUTLEY GRAPHICS BY HANNAH WELCH sushi, after taste of essence of clam with a whiff of Indian Ocean current. A single phrase summed it up: A fragrance of karma sutra. It was described as the ultimate aphrodisiac and might even save the rhinoceros. Charlie just had to try some. He invited his favorite girlfriend to dinner at a seafood restaurant and ordered a bottle of Femme Facile. Well, to cut a long story short, she took one sip and immediately spat it into her soup bowl declaring it undrinkable. Charlie, who quite liked it, apologized and ordered her a martini, straight up, and then another, and then a third. She was happy and bubbly the whole evening and later on he had his way with her (and she had her way too). Charlie pondered the evening and eventually came to the conclusion that perhaps it was described as an aphrodisiac because it made customers wish for something stronger. Then, the other day Charlie saw a gleaming multi-million dollar mega yacht with many tiers of decks, helicopter pads, Jacuzzis, swimming pools, bars and restaurants, a submarine and an army of staff to keep the whole thing running smoothly.

Karen Smith, regatta assistant, says, The majority of our efforts are based around not creating excessive waste and if we cannot avoid this, ways to make sure that the waste is either properly dealt with or biodegradable at the very least. For example, no straws are given with drinks at the party locations, no paper or ”yer products are allowed in skipper bags to reduce waste; and using green water bottles supplied by Heavenly Water and Fiji.Ž A water bottle program was started at the BVI Spring Regatta & Sailing Festival in 2009 with the help of local bottled water supplier, Clear Water. To date, says Petz, there is at least 40 to 50 percent less plastic being dumped in our waters.Ž The Plastic Water Bottle Buster Contest, where crews create a piece of art, form or function out of plastic water bottles to raise awareness, is one part of the Caribbean Yacht Broker Association Internationals (CYBA) Going Green to Save the Blue program.

These endeavors have included use of green cleaning products, reusable shopping bags, non-toxic bottom paints, solar panels, eco-friendly sunscreens and installing water “ltration systems to save on use of plastic bottles for drinking water. This initiative was started at charter yacht shows in the U.S. and British Virgin Islands and has expanded this year to the Antigua Charter Yacht Show. My guess is that in the Virgins alone, this initiative saved about two million bottles from going to land“lls,Ž says Trish Cronin, president of Denaud, Florida-based Ocean Getaways Yacht Charters and CYBA president.

36 ALLATSEA.NET JANUARY 2014 This Cruising Life We all know that it would be great to have unlimited power onboard while at sea or swinging on the hook but the limitations of our onboard power supply make it painfully clear that this cannot be the case for the average cruiser or boater. Even when we are not aboard and the boat is left vacant for any period of time, battery banks aboard can lose energy just from sitting. Firing up a generator or running the onboard engines can help to keep the battery banks topped up, but they can be noisy and burn ever more costly fuel. Wind generators and solar panels may offer another source of energy that can keep your batteries topped and even the possibility of running electrical components aboard without draining battery banks. Determining which of these options is better suited to your needs requires some research, planning and a good understanding of how each will perform on your vessel. In this issue we will look into solar panels SO L AR PANE L S VS WIND GENERA T ORSSTORY AND PHOTOGRAPHY BY GLENN HAYES This catamaran enjoys a good power supply from its array of solar panels on custom mounts Dingy davits make an excellent location for solar panel installations

JANUARY 2014 ALLATSEA.NET 37 and next month we will compare the capabilities of wind generators, with the hope that you can then determine which option would be best for your vessel. Solar panels come in many sizes and forms and can be an excellent source of power for vessels of all types and sizes. Whether you just want a small panel to keep a battery topped off while in storage or at a mooring, or if you are a long range cruiser who needs a way to keep house banks at a usable level each day at sea, there is probably a panel out there for you. Technology and cost reduction are now making them a viable option aboard. Not all solar panels are created equally, however, and an understanding of the different types of panels and their limitations will help you make an informed selection. There are three basic groups of solar panels. Mono-crystalline panels are the oldest technology. Due to its makeup this type of cell creates electricity ef“ciently in a small area (high conversion ef“ciency) and can take less space on deck per watt of power produced. These panels are an option for powering mid-range DC loads such as monitors, computers and other battery draining equipment. The mono-crystalline panels are made up of single silicone cells that are grown into larger cells and cut into wafers, chemically treated and then joined together. Cells are joined together in parallel to increase amperage and in series to increase voltage. This rigid type of panel can be susceptible to shade issues lowering or in some cases shutting off output unless they are wired with bypass diodes. They can also lose ef“ciency as they heat up in the direct sun. The second group, known as multi-crystalline panels, is also made up of single cells but within those cells there are multiple amounts of crystals. This allows for very high conversion ef“ciency but can also be affected by shadowing and heat. These panels are rigid just like the mono-crystalline versions but can produce the highest levels of power for the footprint they occupy. A newer technology is the amorphous thin “lm silicone panel. These panels are manufactured differently and less expensively from the panels above. As a result the cells are thinner and can even be manufactured to be ”exible. They can be formed to “t curves and even attach to bimini tops, dodgers, boom and sail covers. Thinner size and ”exibility does come at a cost however. These types of panels are only about 50% as ef“cient at creating power as the multiWith realistic expectations of their output and an accurate determination of your power requirements solar panels will allow you to enjoy a clean, silent power supply that will keep things running smoothly on any venture.

No matter which solar panel you choose you must determine the output you need. A good rule of thumb is to take the stated output of the panels and divide by two. The resulting answer should match the Amp hours of the battery or battery bank you are trying to keep topped off. It is also recommended to add at least 20% to your determined power requirement to cover variances. When pricing a system it is important to also factor in a charge controller or regulator to any system especially if it is outputting more than 1.5% of a batterys rated capacity. With realistic expectations of their output and an accurate determination of your power requirements solar panels will allow you to enjoy a clean, silent power supply that will keep things running smoothly on any venture.

Just like the mono and multicrystalline versions they can usually be combined to create a higher output. Amorphous panels are however more ef“cient in low light or diffused light such as on a cloudy day and are generally shadow protected. One must keep in mind that most manufacturers rate their panels based on at least “ve hours of full sunlight. When the sunlight is not at full brightness ef“ciency can drop drastically. Another distinct advantage of these types of panels is that they are not as affected by heat and dont drop drastically in ef“ciency when they get hot. Whatever panel you choose, where they will be mounted should be a major consideration (and related cost of mounts factored in). Are they going to have a permanent home or will they be a temporary or movable energy source? Would a rigid panel mounted away from shadows and obstructions be possible or would a ”exible panel that can be formed and mounted on a boom cover or fabric top be a better option? They need to be mounted in a way that they will not interfere with lines and rigging and in a place where they will not be impacted or stepped on (although there are models made that can be walked on). Even the location in which you will be boating is a factor. If you are in an area where there is little Many cruisers are now taking advantage of solar energy

Our biggest challenge was beating our own time and working towards making faster maneuvers. We hope the class picks up, as it is the perfect race boat for these waters. We have one Melges 32 in the Dominican Republic, one in St. Maarten and hopefully two more in Puerto Rico by next season. Our plan for next season is to sail a couple of the Caribbean events to support our local waters and then send the boat up north for the worlds in 2014.Ž Angel Davila, who was the tactician for over 27 years for the Don Q Racing Team, raced aboard his Guango won the four-boat Hunter 216 class.

The ”eet has become very competitive. The boats are even in speed and boat-handling, so its up to who can execute best on the basic stuff ... starts, speed, shifts, and staying out of trouble. The other two boats were newcomers to the class.Ž Jorge Ramos and crew Christine Bahr aboard Radio Joe proved their prowess by winning the six-boat Hobie 16 class by 12 points. Very good organization,Ž says Ramos. As well as tactics, boat speed and positioning led to our win.Ž The ten-class ”eet saw a full range of conditions: 5-8 knots the “rst day, 10-12 knots the second and 15-18 knots the third day. Each class averaged “ve races per day. There were two areas of competition: inside the bay and out in the Caribbean Sea. The CSA racing classes enjoyed the best of both worlds with windward-leeward and long races out around the offshore island, Caja de Muertos. On land, there was good food, live music and cocktails provided by sponsors Don Q and Medalla. Change can be expected for next year,Ž says regatta director Jan Gonzalez. If I am the director once again, I will stick with the three day format. Expect bigger things for next year too since we will be celebrating our 25th Discover.Ž Next years regatta will take place October 31 to November 2 2014.

Although the skies had cleared in time for the start of the “rst race … an exhilarating 19-mile beat from Philipsburg, St. Maarten to Gustavia, St. Barths … some of the crew were still a bit foggy from the previous nights opening party at the 12 Metre Bar. Covering a circuit between St. Maarten, St. Barths and St. Eustatius, a record 21 entrants enjoyed “ve days of vigorous competition, punctuated by evenings with royalty and revelry. The GRR features a combination of distance, pursuit and buoy racing which favors no one class or model of yacht, keeping the results somewhat mutable and the racers on edge. Case in point: on Day Twos 31-mile pursuit race from St. Barths to Statia the “rst three boats crossed the line within 10 seconds, with Klaas van Duuren and Willow Group at the head of the pack. But in the end it was Rogier Petit and Bel Aurora who took overall honors, while Annie Gardner and Team Rockstars successfully defended their 2012 title as winners in the Bareboat division. Petit snatched victory in the tightly contested Open Class, knocking out perennial champion Bobby Velasquez in LEsperance and a solid challenge from Nico Cortlever aboard Nix Competition during the 2013 GRRPHOTO: JAQUELINE VAN DE WEIJERThe Rockstars dressed in costume for buoy races off Statia during GRRPHOTO: JAQUELINE VAN DE WEIJER

Salvaged following Hurricane Luis in 1995, Petit pieced it together, saying he, brought it back to life using stuff other people had discarded.Ž He has campaigned the spartan 36ft yacht successfully throughout the Caribbean since its launch two years ago, adding another notch to his belt with this GRR win. In the Bareboat Division racing was equally exciting, with Gardners all-California-girl team aboard the Sunsail 44i Dundee in Bareboat Class III, de”ecting a challenge by Pieter Bosman and Royal Funfactor on a Moorings 50.5, Bareboat II. The Rockstars racked up an impressive number of wins to edge out Royal Funfactor by three points. Each prevailed in their respective classes; Dutch Sailing Events triumphed in Bareboat Class I. The Captain Olivers Memorial Trophy for the best performance by a “rst time competitor went to Ton Broekhuizen and Rental Pumps in Bareboat II class. Capping off a threeweek Caribbean tour, Broekhuizen said he elected to compete in the GRR due to the small scale, camaraderie, and less commercial aspect of the event. This is a nice regatta in a special setting,Ž added the Dutch skipper. Also joining the ”eet were two teams of autistic youngsters from the Antwerp area, participating thanks to the Overstagreizen program and a handful of hardy volunteers. They sailed brilliantly,Ž said GRR organizer Juul Hermsen, who noted the positive impact the youth had on the regatta. The enjoyment they got was infectious!Ž Hermsens enthusiasm was infectious too. Approaching its ten year anniversary, the future of the GRR is bright, he said, with expanded funding by local governments increasing exposure and boosting foreign participation. The regatta, traditionally timed to correspond with Statia Day, also coincided with a visit to the island by King WillemAlexander and Queen Mxima of the Netherlands. These festivities merely added to the nightly merriment of the international ”eet, which included a dance party along the docks in Gustavia, and all night Happy Hour at the 12 Metre Bar in Philipsburg. A “nal prize-giving ceremony at Captain Olivers featured their renowned dinner buffet, along with trophy presentations, sing-alongs and dancing ... until a power outage cut the evening short. Then the party moved to the Sunsail and Moorings docks, where boat-hopping revelry carried on until the early hours.

46 ALLATSEA.NET JANUARY 2014 You know a feature is important when its part of the boat segments name. In the fourth part of our series on what to look for in a center console boat, we asked our experts about considerations when it comes to the helm/console. Heres what they had to say.Alan Lang, ScoutAccessibility and comfort should be the primary considerations when looking at a console. We try to place every component so that the captain can reach it easily. Trim tab switches are placed in areas where you dont need to take your hand off the steering wheel to use Powerboating WHA T T O L OOK FOR IN A C EN T ER C ONSO L E: BY DOUG SIMMONSHELM/CONSOLE them. Electronics are placed at an angle and location that resists the glare of the sun and allows for easy visibility. Its important that the features that control the boats maneuverability are placed with the most focus to ensure the boats safe operation. We think of all of these things and more before we take a console to market. Exact features will ultimately depend on the size of the boat and how it will be used. However, it will always be a consoles function to provide protection from the elements and storage of some type. Youre also starting to see more and more consoles come to market that are more pleasing to the eye, with sleeker shapes. Scout has always focused on this, as the

PAGE 49

JANUARY 2014 ALLATSEA.NET 47console is where the captain spends most of his time. We put a lot of time into our consoles, as some of the more aesthetic consoles are much more labor intensive.ŽBryan Harris, EvergladesYou need to look at how ergonomically put together a console is. Can you sit comfortably? Can you reach the wheel? Do you have a place to put your feet? Is it functional and does the overall design work? Next, consider how big the console is. Does it meet your needs based on what you plan to do? How much protection do you get from the elements? Does it have a T-top? If so, is it “berglass or canvas? With a hardtop, you can have a lot of things built in, like lights and speakers. That may or may not be important, but you need to think about how you plan to use the boat and make that distinction. What kind of windshield does it have? Our boats have sliding, adjustable windshields „ either manual or hydraulic. How big is the dash? The electronics are getting bigger and bigger. Weve now made it so our consoles will “t 12inch electronics. Consoles have also gotten bigger inside. Having a head on the boat has become important. Can you get in and out easily? Lastly, consider the cosmetics. If you look at T-tops now, powder coating is big. Ten years ago, most T-tops were stainless steel. But the powder-coating process is much better and more respected now. And obviously people like it, because boat builders are doing more and more.Ž

A new 420 LXF luxury sport“sher is scheduled to launch this spring. www.scoutboats.comMEE T T HE MANUFA CT URERS: Powerboating David Neese, Grady-WhiteThe primary consideration is always going to be safety. Assess the sightlines. How long do you lose visibility at planing, and on plane, can you see “ve or seven boat lengths ahead? Most consoles are built pretty far back and at ”oor level, so seeing over the bow or console can be a challenge. The second part is comfort or ergonomics. Can you reach the wheel and shifter when seated? Thats a pretty good test. You dont want to have to move yourself to be able to control the boat. If youre a “sherman, if you run far offshore and “sh all day, its a long day, and you dont want to work to drive the boat, it just tires you out more. You also want good protection. How tall is the windshield? How will it protect you on a really nasty day? One feature that weve kind of focused on is a windshield wiper on all of our consoles. It mysti“es me that this isnt included on more boats. Things have gotten much softer over the years, with better padding and vinyl bolsters to stand and lean on. There are more re“nements „ more stereos and cup holders. The insides of some of our consoles are air conditioned and heated. Im six-one and in our boats 28-feet and up, I can stand and move around in the consoles, so theres more room for rod storage and other things in general.ŽJeff Vaughn, Boston WhalerWhen people are looking at a center console, they need to think about how theyre going to use the boat „ the people that will be with them, the conditions they will be in. Then, visualize how the console will help them achieve their usage goals. Two areas that come to mind right away are visibility and ergonomics. The console is either easy to see over and around, or its not. Some consoles can be too high. Almost all of them have T-tops now, with pipe structure, so its easy for a console to not have the visibility it ought to. By ergonomics I mean how comfortable is this piece of equipment to use in various scenarios? Can I stand up and drive the boat and sit down and drive the boat? Do passengers have a place at the console to rest their legs and put down their drinks? We make consoles where people can put their feet and hands in the proper place to be comfortable. The shape at the top of our consoles, it slopes down

PAGE 51

JANUARY 2014 ALLATSEA.NET 49 ever so slightly „ its not ”at on top. Thats so we can have tuck space, a place to put your hat or binocs. It takes extra to engineer that in. Another thing weve done is try to accommodate the bigger display screens that electronics manufacturers are giving to us. These days, consoles are getting “nished off inside. Theyre all “berglass with vents and heads and storage. Some of them even have sinks, galleys and accommodations. The evolution over time has become to use each inch of space and create more of a multi-tool.ŽJoan Maxwell, RegulatorThe console should be laid out with a thought for operation of the boat. Are the throttles in close proximity of the helm? Where are the trim switches located? What about electronics? Can they be added to the console and still be visible? Our consoles are slightly sloped forward, so the bow is more easily seen while the boat is in operation. In addition, they have large, ”at faces that allow for installation of the newest thin electronics. The breaker panels are visible „ no bending down to see whether or not youve turned on the correct switch. All Regulator consoles have tempered safety glass windshields, built to take heavy seas. Whether its a passenger holding onto it or a wave breaking over the bow, we want to make sure that the windshield stays in place. Cheaper Plexiglas windshields could snap off in these conditions. Serviceability is also important. On our boats, access to the back of the electronics, wiring and steering systems can be easily achieved through the hinged doors inside of the console compartment. Enough head room to actually stand up. Our consoles are scribed and “tted onto a boss/lip on the liner. This allows for the fasteners to be placed vertical and not horizontal. Imagine the lid of a shoe box sliding down on the box ƒ there isnt a ”ange sticking out. Flange-mounted consoles are easier to install, but they dont provide an even surface for the angler/operator to walk around. They could become a source of toe-stubbing.ŽCOMING UP: Look for our article on center console features and amenities in the next issue of All At Sea To comment on this article, email editor@allatsea.net As a travel and marine journalist, Doug Simmons has cruised all around the Northeast, Mid-Atlantic States and Florida, and has island hopped in the Bahamas and the Caribbean.

Saint Thomas April Newland reeled in a 41.14-pounder in the Virgin Islands Game Fishing Clubs Wahoo Wind-Up sponsored by Budget Marine and held November 17, while St. Croixs Jackie Goodyear caught a 41.8lb wahoo in the Golden Hook Fishing Clubs Wahoo Tournament, “shed November 23. Both women took home the Largest Wahoo prizes at each event. Newland, who “shed aboard the Custom 44ft Abigail III and caught her whopper wahoo on stand-up gear, explains, We had already caught ten barracuda when the rod went down strong. It was a “ghter. It took me about 15 to 20 minutes to reel it in.Ž Newlands catch was some 34lb short of earning the $10,000 prize offered in this tournament for a wahoo over 75lb. However, her wahoo was one of a double-header hook-up with fellow angler Mike Landgraf.

Newlands husband, Byron, provided the luck by suggesting the Abigail III “sh off the south side of St. Thomas due to heavy seas rolling in to the north. I “rst suggested we go north, but then followed Byron suggestion due to the weather,Ž says Capt. Bailey. But Ill tell you, that 100lb wahoo is still out there in the north!Ž Two anglers have pocketed the $10,000 cash prize in the last ten years in this tournament. In 2012, Clive Mahabir, aboard local charter boat Mixed Bag reeled in a whopping 91.3-pounder, while in 2003 Mike Kuszewski, “shing aboard the local charter boat Black Pearl landed a 94.1lb wahoo, which remains the tournament record. Meanwhile over on St. Croix, Goodyear, who was “shing aboard Turn & Burn a Deep Impact 40, not only reeled in a big “sh but brought back a great “sh story as well. I was really excited that my rod started pulling line, and I was even more excited to start reeling in the “sh,Ž Goodyear explains. I had an awesome coach beside me (Chad Sheraw) that was instructing me to allow the “sh to take line, and to reel like heck when I could. Everyone was cheering me on.Ž In the background, Goodyear could hear people yelling Watch the kill box!Ž However, the warning really didnt register as she was in the “sh catching zone. So I walked right into the kill box and fell straight on my butt,Ž she explains. I heard Dave (Johnson) yell keep reeling! Of course! I didnt lose grip on my rod when I fell, or lose a beat. Its like trying to save a beer when you fall in the water; you just naturally hold it up and “gure it out. That is what I did in this situation. I just held the reel, fell on my butt, braced myself immediately where I was and kept reeling!Ž It was a couple minutes after Goodyear had landed the wahoo when Johnson, Turn & Burn s owner, joked Jackie is the only animal that has ever gone into the kill box and came out alive!Ž Turn & Burn “nished second in the Best Boat category with 58.4lb to Living the Dream whose anglers reeled in 67lb of wahoo.

56 ALLATSEA.NET JANUARY 2014 Sports “shing is a great way to have fun around the water with kids, says Capt. Mike Pigott, who operates NightWing Charters out of Antigua. This is one reason why all three of the Antigua and Barbuda Sports Fishing Clubs tournaments have a youth division. Over the last few years this has become a tough trophy to win. However, tournament “shing really isnt where you want to start.Ž Begin by encouraging kids to have an interest in their environment and speci“cally the aquatic environment and the creatures within it, recommends Capt. Gary Clifford, who runs the 31-foot Innovator, Yes Aye out of True Blue Sport“shing Charters in St. Georges, Grenada. Then demonstrate this to them by taking them “shing for small “sh at “rst and show them how catching a “sh allows you to see it close up and to hold it before releasing it back into the water … something non “sher people never get to do. This is the starting point to get them to want to catch a “sh too. When they do, they get to feel the sensation of the “sh pulling the line and it all builds from there.Ž Roger Casellas, an avid “shermen and member of Club Nautico de San Juan, enjoys “shing with his son, seven-yearold Roger, Jr. Here in Puerto Rico we have the opportunity to “sh both in freshwater and saltwater, inshore or offshore.

Most kids would prefer catching lots of little “sh as opposed to trolling all day for one big “sh. There are always more small than big “sh. Plus, when there is more action going on, kids tend to get less sea sick.Ž In general, the good thing about “shing at an early age is that its all about the catch not the equipment used, says Casellas. A kids excitement is based on what they catch. A kid can start “shing with an aluminium can with I think that, depending on the conditions, inshore “shing can be practiced at an age of three to four years. With the right sea conditions, kids age “ve years and older can start offshore “shing.Ž Puerto Ricos Jose Pavia, also a member of Club Nautico de San Juan and father of junior anglers, Bianca and Jorge Enrique, agrees. Usually by eight years of age you can take your child out for a half-day “shing expedition with calm seas. At that time you want to have your child “sh for mahimahi, wahoo or small yellow tail tuna. By age 10 to 11, you can test taking your kid to “sh for bill“sh if they can handle the whole day.Ž PHOTO: JIMMY LOVEL PHOTO: JIMMY LOVELPuerto Rican angler Roger Casellas Jr. (7) in the fighting chair aboard his fathers boatPHOTO COURTESY OF ROGER CASELLAS

After some experience, a custom rod and reel can be matched to age, gender and type of “sh targeted.Ž One of the biggest joys of sports “shing, for young and old alike, are the stories that make memories for a lifetime. True Blues Clifford shares just a couple tales from his charters with children. The youngest angler to catch a sail“sh on my boat was an eight-year-old. He wound it in all by himself. Then I had a 13-year-old catch 13 barracuda, black“n tuna, false albacore and king mackerel all on one day.Ž In sum, Casellas shares his tried and true theory: If you plan to go out with your kid on a boat offshore at an early age, you have to choose the right weather. Be wise and patient with the amount of time you spend to make sure its a good experience for them. This will guarantee future interest or as they say hook him or her on the sport of “shing for life.Ž Carol M.

JANUARY 2014 ALLATSEA.NET 63 United States Virgin Islands prepared by Micheale Zazo, aboard the Voyage 500, Feel the Magic I wanted to prepare something outside the box and away from the usual uses of coconut,Ž explains Zazo, who won this competition last year in her and captain Michael Hank Hamptons “rst season of charter. In the end, my dish had the familiarity of traditional Caribbean conch fritters with a twist.Ž You could say Zazo traveled the world looking for recipe ideas. She and fellow charter chefs learned that coconut would be the competitions key ingredient at the end of August. Therefore, during travels to see friends in South Africa and Spain in the fall, she searched restaurant menus and each countrys culinary magazines for inspired uses of this tropical fruit. Zazo also did her homework. She brainstormed with friends and fellow chefs, made a list of all types and forms of coconut, and worked out a variety of ”avor combinations that paired with coconut. Ultimately, she created a recipe that didnt just call for a little obligatory coconut, but one in which three different types of coconut were strategically used throughout the dish. First, Zazo incorporated sweetened shredded coconut into a pound of raw peeled and deveined shrimp of which half was minced and the other half coarsely chopped. This combination created a fritter that held together well without the use of a “ller such as breadcrumbs. Tropical ”avors such as lime zest and grated ginger rounded out the seasonings. Secondly, the fritters were dipped in an egg wash made of egg and unsweetened coconut milk and a crunchy coating mix of sliced almonds, cracker crumbs and sweetened shredded coconut before frying. Thirdly and last, Zazo served the fritters with a dipping sauce that called for non-alcoholic pia colada drink mix and sweetened ”aked coconut along with crushed pineapple. The win gave me con“dence that last year wasnt pure luck,Ž Zazo says. Championing the VICLs 2013 Culinary Contest is a great way for Zazo and Hampton to kick-off their second season of charter aboard Feel the Magic While they enjoyed a great “rst season with 18 charters, they have learned along the way and this has strengthened their position as one of the most popular charter boats in the VICL ”eet. Many people still dont know what a charter yacht vacation is,Ž says Zazo. Its important to answer their questions, Championing the VICLs 2013 Culinary Contest is a great way for Zazo and Hampton to kick-off their second season of charter aboard Feel the Magic.

In fact, it came down to a tie-breaker before the St. Croix sailor at the helm of his Melges 24, Boogaloo knew he had won his weight in rum. We ended up tied with Dark Star a well sailed J-105 from Puerto Rico. Luckily the tie breaker went our way,Ž says Dale. Racing the Melges 24 is always a blast. Its a very physical and responsive pocket rocket.

Friday featured the single-day Commodores Race, in which 22 boats competed. The traditional SCIR, with the rum prize, was raced on Saturday and Sunday with 26 entries. The format not only accomplished its ”exibility objective, but also led to some excellent sparring between boats competing in both the Commodores Race and SCIR.

Our Commodores Race win is proof that Paladin had a nimble and eager crew!Ž Five of the SCYCs Rhodes 19s competed in a one-design class.

After that, we won the next three races in convincing fashion,Ž explains Chris Schreiber of their Commodores Race win. In the SCIR, we led in the lighter eight to 10 knot breeze the “rst day. The next day, there was heavier air and a short, steep chop that made it dif“cult. We won two races that day to win the class.Ž The Richard Newick Perpetual Multihull Award was another new addition this year. The win going to St. Croixs Joe San Martin aboard the 23ft Newick trimaran, Piglet  Piglet was the only Newick boat in the regatta. Dick (Richard) was a good friend of mine and I really wanted this trophy badly,Ž explains San Martin. The whole class was fast, but the short courses favored a boat like mine.Ž Sailors response to the SCIRs new format change proved positive. We really liked the format. Fridays regatta served as a warm up for the weekend series,Ž explains Ra“ Martinez, who crews aboard Dark Star Since we took the time to sail over from Puerto Rico, we really enjoyed having three days of racing. Although there were separate events, it feels that you are racing a three day event.Ž St. Croixs Schreiber agrees. The two day format is a good option for those who cant commit to the full three days. Both BVI boats came over on Friday; had they done a three day regatta they may not have come at all. I think its a great idea and accommodates those who cant take the extra time. Plus, it allows for more winners, which is always a good thing!Ž Charlie Fischer, regatta director and commodore of the SCYC, says, Were growing with more entries this year than last.

But even the ones we lost were very close matches.Ž Rathbuns team didnt lose another match for the rest of the regatta. At the end of the “rst days double-round robin with 24 matches completed, Rathbun was second to the USAs Elizabeth Kratzig, who had Can“eld as crew. The second day, the breeze picked up to a perfect 12 to 15 knots. Principal Race Of“cer Bill Can“eld from St. Thomas ran ten more matches before the skippers for the semi“nals were determined. We won 2-0 against the USAs David Storrs in the semis and that put us in the “nals against the USAs Maggie Shea, who was skippering for Kratzig and beat Marco Teixidor from Puerto Rico,Ž Rathbun says. The “nals were a “rst to one point. We got a good start on Maggie Focus and constant improvement earned the BVIs Colin Rathbun and his team the win at the 12th Pete Sheals Memorial Match Race (PSMMR), sailed out of the Royal BVI Yacht Club and in the Sir Francis Drake Channel, November 9-10 2013. The victory earned Rathbun the title of BVI National Match Racing Champion. Rathbun set sail against “ve other teams from the BVI, USVI, Puerto Rico and USA, including one USA team where the USVIs Taylor Can“eld … currently the number one ranked match racer in the world … sailed as crew. We got off to a slow start,Ž explains Rathbun, who has competed in this event six times and won in 2010. We lost our “rst match, then won a match and then lost another one.

We were really in phase.Ž Rathbuns team included Claudia Delahoy, who has experience skippering Swedish Match 40s at the Oakcliff Sailing Center in New York; Paul Exner, who is new to the sport but brings much enthusiasm; and 15-year-old BVI sailor Jason Putley, a talented junior sailor who started on bow and ended up calling tactics. The “rst few races we werent in tune or focused,Ž says Rathbun. After that, we kept improving in both tactics and concentration.Ž The USAs Kratzig/Shea “nished second, USAs Storrs third, Puerto Ricos Teixidor fourth, USVI up-and-coming junior sailor Thomas Walden “fth, and BVIs Kevin Wrigley sixth. In addition to pro Can“eld, race of“cers included umpires David Pelling, from Canada; the USAs Don Makowiecki and St. Maartens David de Vries. Thad Lettsome, one of the BVIs top junior sailors, rode along with de Vries on Saturday to learn more about the rules of sailing up close from the experts. The event was great fun and very exciting to watch, as the ”ag and signal coordinator on the Race Committee boat I got to see the pre-starts up close and personal, it was great to see the young sailors as well as the inexperienced match racers battling it out with the top ranked match racers,Ž says regatta director Clair Burke. It was also a bonus having Taylor Can“eld at the event. I think everyone learned something from him, both on the water and at the debrie“ng on Saturday afternoon.Ž The PSMMR started in 2001 when members of the BVIYC wanted to start match racing. A decision was made to name the inaugural BVI Match Race after Pete Sheals, an avid sailor who tragically passed away three months prior. The Club at the time had two wayfarer dinghies and these were used for the “rst PSMMR. The initial event had to be postponed after the “rst day when one of the masts broke, and it concluded in February of the following year when the new mast arrived. The match race continued in wayfarers for a couple years until moving into IC24s. In 2010, the PSMMR developed further with the introduction of international competitors and ISAF quali“ed Umpires. The 2011 event was the “rst ISAF graded event.Is match racing on the rise in the BVI?Its still of a niche,Ž says Rathbun. There are a few sailors who enjoy the challenge and others that want to race more leisurely with a beer in their hand.

C HRIS T OPHE HARBOUR BY THE EDITOR St. Kitts Yachts sailing to the beautiful Caribbean will soon have a new and exciting waypoint to dial into the GPS: 17 14 N; 62 45 W. This is the position of St. Christophe Harbour on the island of St. Christopher (St. Kitts), one of the newest resorts and marinas in the Lesser Antilles. Located in the heart of the cruising grounds between Antigua and St. Maarten, in what was once a salt pond, St. Christophe Harbour is set on 2,500 acres of natural bays, bluffs, and beaches on the southeastern peninsula of St. Kitts. The centerpiece of the new development is a 300-slip superyacht marina and village that is due for completion in 2014. The “rst phase of the marina development calls for one dock with 20 alongside berths to accommodate vessels from 148.5 to 214.5ft (45 to 65m) in length. Saint Kitts is part of the twin-island Federation of St. Kitts and Nevis, which means twice the adventure for charter guests or for a crew stop,Ž says Marina Project Manager Aeneas Hollins. Theres something for everyone … beautiful white-sand beaches, UNESCO world heritage sites to explore, vibrant cultural arts displays throughout the year and endless outdoor adventure opportunities.Ž As the Caribbean continues to develop as a destination, Hollins says that the new marina will compliment existing regional highlights, a home port for some … a charter hub for others. The entry channel will be maintained to 20ft (6m) depth, there will be no bridge to negotiate and our max vessel LOA is 300ft (91m) operating within the marina.Ž While captains and crews will relish the thought of a new, sheltered, Caribbean superyacht marina with ease of access, charter guests will delight in the facilities ashore. The dynamic resort features elegant residences, a Park Hyatt, St. Kitts hotel, Tom Fazio golf course (under construction), and beachside pavilion. Vessels wishing to visit St. Christophe Harbour can “nd secure anchorage in Whitehouse Bay. And although parts of the An overview with all phases complete

JANUARY 2014 ALLATSEA.NET 83 Panama ish settlement on the American mainland in 1510: San Sebastin de Urab. Hunger, diseases and poisonous arrows soon decimated the settlers. Before Vasco Nez de Balboa became a famous explorer, he lived in the colony of Hispaniola (Haiti/Dominican Republic) as an unsuccessful pig farmer. To escape his creditors he hid as a stowaway on a ship sent to San Sebastin. Balboa was soon discovered and only his knowledge of the region saved him from being marooned. When the ship reached the settlement it had already been abandoned and Balboa suggested relocating to the western shore where he assumed hed “nd fertile soils and friendlier indios. The Spaniards were opposed by a cacique (chieftain), but they won the battle, founded a new colony and named it Santa Mara la Antigua del Darin, in honor of the Virgin of Sevilla whose protection they had invoked during the “ght. Nothing remains of the “rst two colonies; the lush jungle overgrew the ruins. Sailing north into Panama we entered the autonomous Comarca de Kuna Yala and found more traces of Balboa who kept exploring the land eager for gold and slaves. Attracted by myths of riches in the south, he organized an expedition. One hundred and ninety Spaniards and 1000 warriors of the cacique Careta (probably the village Carreto) set out into the mountains. Many were killed in attacks, or died of exhaustion and diseases, but Balboa continued and on September 25 1513, he was the “rst European to see the legendary south seas (the Paci“c). Balboa discovered and named the Golfo de San Miguel and the Las Perlas Islands, and returned later with a second expedition exploring and conquering more of the Paci“c coast. Despite (or because of) his success he made in”uential enemies, was accused of treason and beheaded in 1519. Regardless of his inglorious death and his cruelty against the indigenous population, Vasco Nez de Balboa has become Panamas national hero. Parks and streets throughout the country carry his name, as well as the currency and the most popular Panamanian beer. In the mangrove-fringed bay of Puerto Escocs (Scottish Harbour) a few miles north, ruins of another colony remain. In 1698 the Kingdom of Scotland sent out 1200 settlers in an attempt to become a world trading nation. The Scots built a fort, a watchtower and a village, and called their new home Caledonia (a nearby Kuna village still carries that name). Farming proved dif“cult, the Kuna showed little interest in trading bibles, combs and woolen clothing. Devastating epidemics and hunger led to mortality rates of ten settlers a day. After eight months they gave up and only 300 survivors reached Scotland. Another ”eet with 1000 settlers Regardless of his inglorious death and his cruelty against the indigenous population, Vasco Nez de Balboa has become Panamas national hero. Isla Pino

84 ALLATSEA.NET JANUARY 2014 through the eyes of the 16th century discoverers. The Golfo de Urab nowadays has a bad reputation concerning drug traf“cking and guerillas, but yachts can anchor off Turbo. The bay of Sapzurro at the entrance of the gulf offers a very attractive and much safer anchorage and a starting point for jungle walks. In Kuna Yala, cruisers can choose between hundreds of anchorages in front of traditional villages or off remote islands. The Darin jungle still covers the whole isthmus between Panama and Colombia. No roads lead here„even the Inter-American Highway connecting Alaska with Chile is interrupted in the Darien gap. The Darin is home to the indigenous groups of the Kuna, Ember and Wounaan and comprises an exceptionally high biodiversity in its mangrove swamps, rainforests and rivers. However, despite conservation efforts in a national park, the ecosystem is threatened by farming and illegal logging along the advancing road. Birgit Hackl, Christian Feldbauer and their ships cat Leeloo set sail towards the horizon in June 2011 on their yacht Pitufa. Visit their blog: www.pitufa.at Panama found only abandoned huts, disputes followed and after a Spanish siege the colony was abandoned. The Darien disaster is rated as a factor that led to the end of Scotlands independence and the founding of Great Britain in 1707. Wandering through the lush gardens of Puerto Escocs its hard to imagine the starving settlers. According to the Kuna, the colony did not fail because of bad planning, weak leadership and epidemics; they simply failed to appease the bad ghosts that dwell in the bay. Sailing on to Isla Pino, we crossed the tracks of a fascinating adventurer: William Dampier (1651 … 1715). Dampier was an English buccaneer and explorer, but also a naturalist who chronicled his experiences in extensive journals. In the late 17th century the Spanish Empire had conquered large parts of America and exploited the resources, attracting English and French pirates and buccaneers„among them William Dampier. When buccaneers landed in Isla Pino, the Kuna, who had suffered under the Spaniards, offered to lead them over the isthmus where they raided the rich cities on the Paci“c side. Cruising along the Colombian and Panamanian coast and venturing into the rainforest you can still see the world Village life on Isla Pino

112 ALLATSEA.NET JANUARY 2014 Caribbean Dining & Provisioning T HE DISH BY CAPN JAN ROBINSON It is that time of the year when your resolutions are thrown in the air and then you wait to see what comes down and sticks! Most of us include diet, eating better, and exercise at the top of the list. Important in our life is to eat better, but not lack in decandance, taste, and style. How about going plant-based? Which means, cutting back on animal products and processed foods. As plant-based meals are de“nitely top of my list. I contacted Chad Sarno, VP of plant-based education at Rouxbe Cooking School. Below are recipes that will embrace your transition. Happy, healthy, New Year!ROASTED BEETS, SPINACH, SUNFLOWER KERNELS, AND CITRUS-HONEY VINAIGRETTEPreparation time: 15 minutes. Serves: 4 4 beets, roasted and sliced or cut in inch cubes 4 cups baby spinach 1/3 cup dry roasted sun”ower kernels DRESSING: Juice of 1 lemon Juice of 1 orange Juice of 1 lime 1 Tbsp honey 1 tsp Dijon Mustard For the dressing, combine all ingredients. (You should have just over 1/2 cup combined juice from the orange, lemon, and lime.) Whisk to combine. Add additional olive oil, if desired. Toss the spinach with a little dressing and divide between plates. Create a pile of roasted beets in centre. Drizzle a little extra dressing on top. Sprinkle with chopped sun”ower seeds and citrus zest.NOTE: To roast beets. Preheat oven to 350F. Cut off the top and bottom of the beets. Place on foil. Pour a little olive oil over and sprinkle with a little sea salt. Wrap the beets in foil. Make sure they are thoroughly wrapped. Place the foil packet of beets in a baking dish on the middle oven rack. Cook for 1-2 hours, depending on the size of the beets, until the tip of a knife inserts easily. Cool. Using a knife, remove the skin. Slice or cut as desired.GRENADIAN CHOCOLATE SIN CAKEPreparation time: 25 minutes. Cooking time: 45 minutes Refrigerate: 24 hours. Serves: Many 1 cup butter 1/2 cup Caribbean Mountain Coffee, brewed strong 1/2 cup brown sugar 4 eggs, beaten In a saucepan melt butter. Add coffee and sugar; bring to a boil. Pour over chopped chocolate and whisk smooth. Whisk in eggs. Pour into a greased and parchment lined spring-form pan. Wrap pan in foil and place in a water bath. Bake at 325F until just set. Remove from water bath and cool. Refrigerate for at least 24 hours. Remove from spring-form and place on a wire rack. Glaze cake with chocolate ganach (1 cup heavy cream and 1/2 cup chopped Grenadian 60% chocolate, melted together and whisked smooth). Refrigerate until ganach sets. Serve with Passion Fruit Gastrique and garnish with cocoa nibs. PASSION FRUIT GASTRIQUE:1/2 cup sugar 1 Tbsp water 1/4 cup passion fruit pure Boil water and sugar until amber colored. Add pure and vinegar. Be careful, as caramel will splatter. Whisk smooth. Allow to cool, before serving. For courses on plant-bassed cooking, visit: www.rouxbe. com/plant-based Capt.
