BEST SUSHI


CUP MATCH COMPANION Wonderful ways to enjoy the holiday A SPECIAL ADVERTISING SUPPLEMENT OF THE BERMUDA SUN JULY 22, 2011 PAGE 1

BY B. CANDACE RAY bcray@bermudasun.bm

Cup Match means cricket, cricket and more cricket. Bermuda Sun writers, news editor James Whittaker and senior reporter Simon Jones, tackle the subject’s facts and figures as they delve into the details of the sport, the sides and the players at this year’s east end classic. Cricket occupies a great many of its fans during Cup Match. Even if not physically present, they will have a radio stuck to an ear. Others find the game unremarkable and prefer to spend the four-day weekend well away from the Cup Match crowds. So where do you fall? Does the game sandwiched between heat and sun and runs, overs and outs draw you? Does the excitement of Crown and Anchor grab you? Will the carnival atmo-

sphere, faces and fashions sway you? Do the foods redolent with the scent of tradition entice you? Or are you the type of person who prefers to while away the time quietly? This Cup Match Companion 2011 has been prepared with you and the other you in mind.

Activities Non-fans, who have had their fill of camping, and who will not be flying out, can find much to satisfy them during this holiday period at home. Consider a recession-busting ‘staycation’. Be a tourist in your own country. Visit the sites you’ve missed until now, or revisit those you haven’t for a while. We suggest a number of locales to take you on holiday. Shopping locally saves on airfare, hotels, taxis, food and souvenirs. See our profile of women’secret and

browse through our fashion pages. While summer heat might not bother you, it can quickly affect your canine companion. You can ‘chill out’ with your best friend this Cup Match, but make sure the weather doesn’t knock your dog ‘off side’. Read how. Cricket fan or not, your Cup Match plans should incorporate a ‘stay safe’ margin. Here, Petra Spencer-Arscott, disaster manager for the Bermuda Red Cross provides a synopsis of simple ways to not only stay safe, but also healthy during the holiday. Of course, you can lose yourself in a good book during these four glorious days of summer. The patio or lawn, beach, or just leaning against a tree — these locations all offer contented isolation. See the literary suggestions from Brown & Co. Grilling outdoors is a

seasonal delight for almost everyone. The air abounds with tempting aromas, good company and conversation. Peter Jovetic, chef and CEO of Food 4 Thought, offers his tips for healthy, fun outdoor cooking. Butterfield & Vallis have also provided stay-athomers with some delicious recipes for the BBQ. Although it is packed with outdoor fun, Cup Match can also be an expensive time. Honey Adams of Consumer Affairs tells us how to watch our pennies in this tough economic climate. One of the most inexpensive ways to enjoy the holiday and all Bermuda has to offer is to go walking. Laura T. Gorham of the Walking Club of Bermuda provides some tips on some of the most scenic strolls. Away from the cricket, crowds and camping, you can enjoy the serenity of our island home at your own pace. ■

THE BERMUDA SUN

Will Somerset break the stalemate? BY JAMES WHITTAKER jwhittaker@bermudasun.bm

“Emancipate the cup from draws� is how one commentator summed up the public mood after rain affected last year’s clash at Somerset. After four consecutive stalemates, could this year be the one we finally see a result? Somerset will hope so. The cup has been in the east for so long, the boys in red and blue have forgotten what it looks like.

Contenders It was 2004 when the west enders last lifted the cup. But inch-by-inch, over a series of draws – some dull, some spectacular — Somerset have begun to look like contenders again. Last season it was young guns Malachi Jones and Deunte Darrell that took the battle to the holders.

CedarBridge student Darrell gave one of the most assured debuts seen at the Classic in recent years. His accomplished knock of 72 in a pressure situation on day one showed he has the temperament for the big occasion. It also earned him the MVP (Most Valuable Player) award. It was the performance of Jones though, that will give Somerset fans hope they have a new Cup Match star. A blistering display of clinical hitting thrilled the Cup Match crowd on day one last year. And his deadly pace bowling performance on Friday morning might have carried Somerset to victory, were it not for the looming rain clouds that turned the pitch into a water park by midafternoon. A repeat performance from Jones combined with

Add Bermuda’s most consistent international batsman, Stephen Outerbridge, and ‘Mr Cup Match’ into the mix and it is clear that the challengers have their fair share of match winners. After a rare failure last year, Janeiro Tucker will be itching to set the record straight. His century was crucial to Somerset’s challenge in 2009. But he missed out on

home turf last time, caught in the slips for one. Tucker, a living legend of the Classic, is just 126 runs shy of Charlie Marshall’s all-time Cup Match rungetting record. St George’s veteran Marshall, now retired, amassed 1,357 runs in a glittering career. But even he admits Tucker will one day inherit his mantle. On the St George’s side Lionel Cann, the swashbuckling former skipper, is also within touching

distance of 1,000 Cup Match runs. Once a middle order chancer who rolled the dice with the casual abandon of a Crown and Anchor gambler after a crate of Elephant beers, Cann has honed his style to be a leader on the pitch. He still takes his chances. That’s his game. But in recent years he has played some more mature innings, including a game-saving century in 2009 that combined uncharacteristic grit with his usual stroke play. OJ Pitcher has been the other mainstay of the St George’s batting attack. He has made at least a half-century in three of the last four matches and was missing in 2009 through school commitments. Out in the nineties on two occasions, he will be looking for three-figures this time. Whoever gets the runs, and whoever takes the wickets, the few neutrals in Bermuda will be praying that someone makes a decisive contribution to ensure a result this year. ■

The match: The ones to watch BY JAMES WHITTAKER jwhittaker@bermudasun.bm

With everything to play for in this year’s match, let’s take a look at some of the key players on the opposing sides of the island.

Jekon Edness, Somerset This young wicketkeeper batsman takes over from allrounder Jacobi EDNESS Robinson who was dismissed as captain after last year’s game. Club captain Edness is an accomplished gloveman who has long been heralded as a prospect for Bermuda. He has yet to prove him-

self with the bat however, and has a high score of just 25 in six Cup Match innings. Edness is from good Cup Match stock. His father Anthony Manders played for Somerset as keeper and his uncle Andre Manders captained the west enders.

time last year. A talented and aggressive opening batsman, he has yet to convert his potential into consistent runs at the highest level. Like Edness, he will be looking for his first Cup Match half-century this year.

Oronde Bascome, St George’s

Janeiro Tucker, Somerset

Another young and inexperienced captain steeped in the history and traditions of BASCOME his club. Opener Bascome followed in the footsteps of his father Herbie Bascome to skipper the east enders for the first

Without doubt Tucker is still the man with the knockout punch on the TUCKER Somerset side. As he closes in on the alltime run scorers record, Mr Cup Match will be looking to lead from the front. He already has the See STAR PLAYERS, page 4

Lionel Cann, St George’s Tucker’s counterpoint on the St George’s side, Cann is the man who can turn the CANN game on its head in the matter of a few overs. A pivotal figure in the east enders squad, he has shown that he can claw his side back from the brink of defeat or set up a victory with his big hitting. Get him out early or face the consequences.

player ever to take a wicket in the World Cup. Then a raw 17-yearold, he has JONES matured into the fulcrum of the Somerset attack. He took a hatful of wickets in an impressive display last year and will be seeking early scalps this time. Also a big-hitting batsman, he can be deadly when he is in the right mood.

Delyone Borden, St George’s The big turning off-spinner is the notso secret weapon in an accomplished BORDEN slow bowling attack. Rodney Trott may have had more success with the national team but when it comes to Cup Match, Borden is the key man. If conditions favour spin then the St David’s islander will be expected to bowl a lot of overs. Expect fireworks. ■

BY SIMON JONES sjones@bermudasun.bm

Two-day games are a rare beast in these times of domination by quick fire T20 fixtures and Test match cricket. Bermuda is one of the last bastions of this version of the game, as it has no place on the international stage. It is still being encouraged in some British schools and has formed part of the league season in places like Holland. But, with the exception of Cup Match, the two-day format seldom courts much hype or attention. The unique nature of a two-day game, where both teams have the chance to bat twice, poses different challenges to batsmen and bowlers alike. It is not like the crash, bang and wallop of the 20-20

format where batsmen start their innings all guns blazing. And bowlers tend to try to restrict run rates and stop boundaries rather than bowl good line and length. The thrills and spills of Cup Match are also a million miles away from the classic five-day Test Match. You would be hard pressed to play a measured, Test match style innings without putting the rest of your side under pressure. The batsmen who have donned the famous Somerset and St George’s colours over the years have faced a delicate balancing act of building a score and following their natural instinct, urged on by the partisan crowd, of going hard at the ball. The bowlers, on the other hand, can charge in, safe in the knowledge that they

fixture preserves the best traditions won’t be tossed the ball on the fifth day of the game and asked to put in 20 more gruelling overs. The two-day, two-innings game has its clear benefits. For the fair weather fan, whose appetite is easily satisfied by one dose a year, it is done and dusted a lot quicker than a Test match. There are rarely any meaningless sessions that drag on hour after hour as teams block their way to a draw.

Unique Everyone gets a second bite of the cherry at Cup Match, whereas once you are out in 20-20 or the traditional 50 over a side one dayer, that’s you done. And of course with the game being played on a Thursday and a Friday everyone has the weekend to recover from the fire-

works. There can also be drawbacks to the two-day game. The weather, as it did last year, can wreak havoc with the fixture. The loss of a whole day’s play to rain can effectively end the contest outright. While a result would probably still be possible in the longer forms of the game if an entire day was lost to the conditions. This, combined with the fact that the side holding the cup just needs a draw to retain it, gives added importance to the toss. Cup Match is a game that can be dictated by the toss of a coin – especially if the winners of the toss only need a draw to retain the coveted trophy. But having said all that, it is perhaps the unique nature of Cup Match that makes it what it is. ■

Slip, slap, slop to stay safe in the sun BY PETRA SPENCER-ARSCOTT Bermuda Red Cross

Cup Match fever — let the fun begin! Whether it is camping, swimming, boating, playing or watching the cricket, we spend a lot of time outside during this long-awaited annual holiday. Cup Match is a time for family gatherings and meeting up with friends old and new.

Precautions But to make this a holiday weekend to remember, take those precautions to make it safe and healthy. Here are some simple ways to stay safe during those lazy, hazy and sometimes crazy days of summer. Drink a litre-and-a-half (eight to 10 glasses) of water each day to keep you

■ ISTOCK PHOTO

PROTECTION: Whether cloudy or sunny, use sunscreen. hydrated. If you are playing out in the sun, whether swimming, boating, fishing, charging around the cricket pitch or the golf course, you need more fluids.

Infants and children have a higher risk of getting dehydrated because of their small body mass. Older adults’ bodies also have a reduced ability to

conserve water and their sense of thirst is less acute. For people with chronic illnesses like diabetes and kidney disease, their risk factor is also high. Even a cold or sore throat can add to your body’s inability to stay hydrated — drink lots of water and drink often. Sunburn, heat exhaustion, heat stroke, we all know the drill — slap on the hat, slip on the shirt and slop on the sunscreen. Preventing sunburn is an important step in keeping your skin healthy for life. Put the sunscreen on 20 minutes before you expose your skin and make sure you reapply at least once an hour or after swimming, heavy sweating or towelling off — even if it says ‘waterproof’, and regardless of how strong the factor is. Shirts should be dark in See SAFETY, page 9

SAFETY: Remember sunscreen Be pet-smart this holiday Continued from page 7 colour to help block the sun’s rays in and out of the water, and keep the hat on to protect your head from exposure. Bites and stings are a normal summer hazard, from mosquitoes, spiders, horseflies, bees. But these are generally simple to take care of.

First aid There may be pain and swelling in the bitten area or an allergic reaction. To care for bites and stings, follow these simple steps: remove the stinger by either scraping it away with the edge of a dull object like the back of a plastic knife or credit card, or plucking it out with tweezers; wash the area with soap and water; cover with light bandaging, and if there is swelling or pain, apply a wrapped cold pack which can reduce the discomfort. Keep an eye out for aller-

gic reactions, which can include hives, swelling to the face, itchy watery eyes, breathing problems, swollen airway or tongue. If there are any indications of breathing difficulties, call 911 immediately. One of the best ways to be sure that you can help in an emergency situation at home, work, your place of worship or on vacation is to always have a first aid kit available and get yourself trained in the skills that will allow you to assist. Having the basic materials and training means you can help not only a family member, but also anyone in your community. Bermuda Red Cross wishes everyone a happy and safe Cup Match weekend. ■

You take your dog everywhere, and during Cup Match your radio is also a constant companion. You breeze along in the car, windows wide, your dog’s ears flapping in the wind and the radio tuned to your favourite Cup Match commentary on FM-89. Or perhaps you’re listening to VSB’s Jim Woolridge and Sean Tucker.

Shade You’re comfortable. Your dog’s comfortable — as long as you’re cruising. Whether indoors or out, you want to protect your pet during the heat of the holiday. Keep the animal with you, even when you stop the car and get out. Vehicles heat up incred-

ibly quickly during the hot summer months, and even with the windows open, that heat could be fatal to your best friend. Are you at the park? No problem. Look for shade and plop your pet and yourself down. Offer your dog a drink from the supply you brought with you. Add ice cubes from your cold pack to keep the water cool. And don’t get so caught up in the match that you forget to keep the bowl topped up. Remember, too, that darkcoloured fur absorbs heat, while light colours reflect it. The hot sun will sicken a black or brown dog faster than it will a light-coloured animal. Overweight and older dogs will also be stricken earlier.

Indoors Are you ‘chewin’ the fat’ at your mate’s house while commiserating your team’s performance? Even at your feet, your dog needs care as well as company. Is there a fan, natural airflow, or air conditioning to keep it cool? An animal can become overheated indoors as well as out. And keep in mind that stroking or petting your dog in the heat can be more aggravating than comforting. Dogs pant to cool themselves off, but suppose your dog is sitting in a well-ventilated area?

Action What should you do? Move the animal into the shade or into an area with air conditioning. Turn on a fan and bring it close. Sponge the dog with cool water. Encourage it to drink — no ice.

Take a staycation to rediscover our gems BY B. CANDACE RAY bcray@bermudasun.bm

You may have heard the term ‘staycation’, but what does it mean? It means being a tourist in your own country. So, if you are not going off-island for Cup Match this year, that’s exactly what you will be taking — a stay-at-home vacation. How long is it since you’ve visited the sites our guests yearn to see? We are all within a halfhour drive of the same attractions they pay their airfare, food and lodging for. Familiarity breeds, not quite contempt in this case, but we’re certainly guilty of taking things for granted. The Botanical Gardens comes to mind. Stretch your limbs, trek the paths, read the signs and enjoy the exercise. Note the local and introduced plants. Sketch them, if you can. Smell the flowers. Then settle down with your companions for the delicious picnic you’ve brought to the park.

Beaches Got kids? They’ll like the beach. Shallow, safe Shelly Bay is perfect for little ones, who wade within reach of an adult. The playground there is also an adventure paradise for youngsters. Divers need no urging to hit the blue-green waters of Bermuda’s platform. They get out and down, cruise over the sandy bottoms between reef forests, and swim through schools of fry, grey snappers and perhaps hover within sight of a black grouper. Non-divers are just a qualification away from seeing Bermuda’s other world. They can also cheat the qualification by visiting BAMZ. The Bermuda Aquarium Museum and Zoo’s North Rock exhibit is home to its own ‘goliath’, a 60-100lb black grouper named Darth Vader. The 145,000 gallon tank also houses Spike, a great barracuda. And, if you haven’t been

SPECTACULAR: Crystal Caves takes you into another world. for a while, you won’t have seen the exhibit’s six-foot Galapagos shark. Read the stories on the walls and play ‘diver’ in the underwater cave. The Bermuda Underwater Exploration Institute (BUEI) also features interactive exhibits that help you better understand Bermuda’s physical world — its geology and geography, land mass and ocean. Tour BUEI and learn the most amazing information. Walk Bermuda’s railway trails and come upon sights you’ll never see otherwise. Whether meadows, farms, forested paths or the Great Sound, you’ll enjoy the seclusion and unexpected country scenes away from the island’s residential areas. Hop on the bus to St George’s. Make your staycation into a postcard, with photographs of yourself and family ‘locked’ in the stocks. Take photographs at the Deliverance. Visit St Peter’s Church. And take a walk to the ‘unfinished’ church. Immerse yourself in Bermuda’s scenic original capital and consider the history at your fingertips. Of course, none of this means you have to bypass the big match in the east end. You can couple a morning or afternoon at the game with a visit to the Olde Towne, or any of its envi-

rons. Cheer on your side then stroll the pier, stop for lunch or dinner as you enjoy the welcome familiarity of St George’s. In Hamilton Parish, Crystal Caves draws won-

der and awe from even the seemingly unaffected. You know this. You’ve felt it before, but can’t quite remember when. Cup Match provides the opportunity for a rewind. Rewind your memories and make new ones for the generation that has come behind you and which has yet to be introduced to Bermuda’s subterranean gems. Take your child, your nephew, niece or neighbour, and take pleasure in the natural beauty to be found there. Alternatively, take the west end by storm. Dockyard offers the Bermuda National Museum with its multitude of rooms for every taste, a mural you’ve only heard about until now, and a waterside seat by Dolphin Quest’s dolphins in the Keep.

2011 CUP MATCH CAMPING The Cup Match holiday is a very busy time for camping and picnicking at the Government parks and beaches. Therefore, the Ministry of Public Works in conjunction with the Department of Parks have established a few guidelines for those who wish to camp outside the three designated campgrounds — Ferry Point, Chaplin Bay and Higgs and Horseshoe Islands. The major reforestation and environmental project at Coney Island is still ongoing. Therefore the park is CLOSED to camping. It will be restricted to picnicking only. There will be NO CAMPING at Blue Hole Park/Nature Reserve or Cooper’s Island Nature Reserve at the old NASA site. There is also NO CAMPING on the DUNE immediately behind Jobsons’ Cove in South Shore Park. This dune area has rare sensitive plants that need to be protected.

THE BERMUDA SUN

Universal game bowls over all ages BY JACK GARSTANG jgarstang@bermudasun.bm

When the official game of cricket takes place this Cup Match weekend, many people will be playing the unofficial version of the game — ‘backyard cricket’. This improvised game has its own set of rules, loosely based on those of cricket. Backyard cricket has been played for more than a century in most parts of the world where the British have had influence.

Child’s play Children in Afghanistan, India, Pakistan, Australia and elsewhere in the old British Empire have developed their own set of rules to suit their playing environment, without reference to any rule book. Although these rules have evolved independently in each country, there is a remarkable similarity in

■ PHOTO BY JAMES WHITTAKER

MAKESHIFT: Bermudian boys bat at a car park in St George’s, using a trash bin for their stumps. the way in which the game is played. So much so that a child from Pakistan could slot into a game of backyard cricket played here in Bermuda and immediately understand what the rules were without the need of an interpreter.

Backyard cricket is not just a game for children. It is the one game where adults can join in and have a really good time, and in so doing cross the threshold from adulthood back into the child’s realm of play. All that is required is a suitable playing area, a

bat, tennis ball (more than one is advisable) and anything lying around that can assume the shape of a wicket. In an age where children appear hooked on computer games, the traditional street play of children is becoming a thing of the past in affluent western countries. Yet play is vital to their development, as is exercise, and backyard cricket is the ideal game to develop their ingenuity, dexterity, and coordination. The game’s appeal is in the fact that no expensive equipment is required. Once a suitable playing area is found, children scavenge their environment for what they need, and if a bat cannot be found one can be shaped from a piece of wood. The practice of wrapping electrical tape around a tennis ball to create a seam similar to a real cricket ball — prevalent in the Indian version of the game — is a refinement that has caught on around the world. There are a set of general rules for backyard cricket, but the beauty of the game is that subterfuge is an accepted tactic, especially when used against batsmen that prove difficult to get out. First some general rules: ■ Can’t get out the first ball or without scoring. Designed to give a reprieve to batsmen and to keep their interest in playing. ■ Caught behind (auto wikky). Since it is often difficult to find a wicketkeeper, an edge behind is automatically out. ■ One hand, one bounce. A fielder can dismiss a batsman by catching the ball in one hand on the first bounce. This helps to keep a good rotation of batters and keeps the fielders interested. ■ No LBW: An essential law, as there would be endless disputes as to whether someone was out or not. ■ Six and out: Hitting the ball into next door’s yard for example, is out, and the

batsman has to fetch it. ■ Cars/windows: Hitting a car or a window on the full is automatically out and this also encourages responsible play. ■ Standard over: In the official game, six-ball overs are the norm. However, in this form of cricket the bowler will not relinquish the ball until challenged by other fielders. The bowlers’ response is the same the world over: ‘There are two to come’. ■ Any wicket: The fielders can shy at the batsmens’ stumps or the bowler’s stump to effect a run-out. The game is rarely played as a team game, as each batsman keeps a tally of his own score. In family games the youngsters bat first and are given endless chances. The hopeless batters are then given their go, and after a decent interval has lapsed this farce can be brought to an end.

Subterfuge Now for the serious part. Dad has been waiting patiently for his turn to bat and has no intention of giving his wicket away cheaply. After he has hit a few imperious cover drives it is time for the bowlers and fielders to use subterfuge. Soaking the ball in water, without the batsman’s knowledge, is one way. The ball will keep wickedly low and may catch him off guard. Also acceptable is the ‘lost ball trick’, used when the fielders are getting desperate. After the batsman has hit the ball into the bushes the fielders all pretend they can’t find it. Someone smuggles the ball into his pocket and as the batsman is quietly amassing runs, casually runs him out. The funny thing about this game is that it never quite comes to conclusion. Family games usually end when the barbeque is ready. Street games often end after a dispute. But no mattter how it ends, the players have a good time, making this the ideal game for friends and family to play this Cup Match weekend. ■

Spend wisely this year BY HONEY ADAMS Consumer Affairs

When it comes to holiday celebrations, there is nothing in the world like Cup Match, a festive fourday holiday eagerly anticipated by all. It is a fun, sociable time when family and friends get ADAMS together to barbecue, party, go to the beach or out on the water, and of course, watch the cricket. Many people also use the holiday to catch up on chores such as sprucing up the house or taking a trip overseas. Those staying on the island may also buy new clothes especially for the holiday, while households

stock up on provisions ready to entertain friends and family dropping in. All of this costs money. According to the Bermuda Monetary Authority, the Bermuda Dollar notes and coins in circulation over the 2010 Cup Match holiday was $141.3 million, compared with $137.2 million in 2009 — an increase of 2.9 per cent. That is a great deal of money, particularly during a time of recession. As the economic downturn continues, if you are among the many people finding it hard to make ends meet, I suggest this Cup Match you seriously consider your economic circumstances before spending more than you can afford. Think about it, do you need to buy new clothes to wear to the match? How much food and beverages do you need for a four-day weekend? See CASH, page 21

Don’t Get Caught Out! Caught without your water that is! Make sure you stay hydrated during this Cup Match holiday. Dehydration hampers physical performance. Be sure you have water handy at all times by keeping a bottle of water with you when you are camping, traveling or exercising. Drink Pure Water while you watch the game and have a happy, healthy hydrated Cup Match holiday. Remember we have a wide selection of dispensers for sale or rent perfect for the Cup Match holiday!

CASH Continued from page 19 If you are going camping, how much gear do you really need to buy? And do you really think that you will get a substantial return on your investment at the Crown and Anchor table? I am not suggesting that we all forego having a funfilled, holiday weekend by staying at home and counting our pennies. However, money is tight for most of us and belts are being tightened; so ask yourself, ‘Can I afford to spend this money?”. If the answer is “No” then consider these money saving tips:

Travelling If money is tight it doesn’t make sense to plan an overseas trip, even if there is a seat sale.

Camping I know Bermudians have a unique way of camping but is it necessary to have a flat screen, refrigerator, microwave oven, boom box, DVD player and anything else that requires the use of a large and loud generator.

Food Don’t buy too much.

Boating If you don’t want to go overboard with expenses it is acceptable to ask guests to contribute towards the food and beverages, and gas.

Beach and picnicking Arrange a pot luck meal; everyone brings something, even if it’s a box of plastic forks, napkins, garbage bags or a six pack of soda.

Cup Match (the Match itself) Avoid the Crown and Anchor tent. Eat a good meal before you go. Look through your closet for something to wear. You can probably put together a new fashionable outfit out of clothes you already have. Take games, toys and books with you so your little ones will have something to

CUP MATCH COMPANION: A SPECIAL ADVERTISING SUPPLEMENT entertain themselves with. If your plan is to stay at home and watch the match on television (which is not a bad idea) don’t forget to conserve electricity. You can always put the TV in the yard and take advantage of the cool breezes. An air conditioner running constantly will cost you. Fill a cooler with ice for beverages so you and your guests are not constantly opening the fridge. These are just a few ideas on being frugal over the Cup Match holiday, and there are lots of other ways to save money. Think about it long and hard, what are your plans and what will they cost you? Do a Cup Match holiday budget and then decide if you can afford it. Whatever you are doing for the holiday, be safe, have fun and don’t spend what you don’t have. You don’t want to wake up on the Monday after with the post-holiday burden of being out of money and experiencing the unnecessary stress that overspending produces. ■

NATURAL BEAUTY: Explore the island’s flora and fauna. Governor Sir Richard Gozney is pictured, left, at Spittal Pond.

BY LAURA T. GORHAM Walking Club of Bermuda

Bermuda is one of the most beautiful places on earth and walking is one of the best ways to acquaint yourself with the island. It allows you to see and enjoy little-known places you would hardly notice whizzing by on your scooter or in a taxi. Walking gives instant access to the island’s oftoverlooked treasures: railway trails, tribe roads, backyards, hidden beaches, grottos, nature reserves, parks and by-ways. Then there are the health benefits. Rain or shine,

alone or with a group, walking is free. All you need are comfortable shoes and an all-weather jacket. Walking also works off those extra calories you typically consume while on vacation, so enjoy that fabulous meal guilt-free. It is always wise to choose your starting point and map a route. Check out the Walking Club of Bermuda’s website www.walk.free.bm for suggestions. The Ministry of Tourism and Transport also produces a pamphlet on the Railway Trail which you can find at most hotels and Visitors’ Centres. The Walking Bermuda See WALKING, page 23

WALKING Continued from page 21 book can also be found at local bookstores. As a member of the Walking Club for the past 14 years, I have walked almost every inch of the island. If you enjoy good company and an organized route, you can join us on Sunday mornings at 7am. You never know who you might meet or what you could learn from our members… oh, and it’s free. If early Sunday morning walks are not your thing, you will need to plan your own route.

Routes Our club website has an archive of directions for six-mile routes. They are circular and can be easily shortened or lengthened. Good choices for shorter routes are Spittal Pond in Smith’s, Clearwater Beach/ Cooper’s Island in St. David’s, Ferry Reach in St. George’s or Hog Bay Park or Fort Scaur in Somerset. But my top recommendation would be to start at Horseshoe Bay in Southampton Parish. From the parking lot, go past the concession buildings along the beach. Then wind your

CUP MATCH COMPANION: A SPECIAL ADVERTISING SUPPLEMENT way east across the private coves and beach paths of the South Shore Trail. Cut up to South Road at Chaplin Bay or Warwick Long Bay, then cross the road at the zebra crossing to the Tribe Road. You will see a sandy path that leads north, across Spice Road. At the bottom of a set of steep steps, turn left onto the Railway Trail. The Trail is clearly marked and easy to follow, all the way through to Church Road by the post office. Turn left on Church, and either left on St Anne’s Road by Gibb’s Hill Lighthouse, or go all the way to South Road and back to Horseshoe Bay. This route is about seven miles. There are cut-off points to make it shorter, such as through the Fairmont Southampton Resort or up the steep hill to Gibb’s Hill Lighthouse. You might want to include breakfast afterwards at the Fairmont or lunch at The Reefs. Remember the Walking Club motto: ‘We walk to Eat!’ So, get walking! Enjoy the sights and sounds. ■

Dive in and discover BY JAMES WHITTAKER jwhittaker@bermudasun.bm

If Cup Match is not your thing, and let’s face it, two days of cricket is not for everyone, there is still plenty to enjoy over the four-day holiday. Getting out on the water is a priority for most. And you don’t need your own boat to make it happen. Here is our quick guide to five ways to enjoy Cup Match on, or in, the water.

Try scuba diving Bermuda is a Mecca for divers. But many locals have never ventured beneath the waves to explore the paradise on their doorstep. Pristine coral reefs, underwater caverns, Civil War era shipwrecks and amazing marine wildlife await those adventurous enough to give it a try. Triangle Diving (2937319) at Grotto Bay in the east end, Dive Bermuda (238-2332) at the Fairmont Southampton Resort, and Blue Water Divers at Somerset Bridge (234-1034) offer ‘Discover Scuba’ les-

sons for those wanting to try it for the first time, as well as boat dives for those qualified.

Hire a Boston Whaler You don’t need to be a seasoned mariner to skipper a Boston Whaler for the day. Most water sports outfitters will rent you a small motorboat to take for a spin, with just a basic tutorial on steering and docking. You can fill a cooler and spend the day cruising. Robinson’s Marina (2341034) in Somerset is a good place to rent because it offers easy access to great snorkelling off the Vixen shipwreck. Blue Hole Watersports (293-2915), at Grotto Bay, close to the picturesque Castle Harbour is another good spot.

Get a wakeboarding lesson Nothing beats the adrenaline rush of being towed at high speed behind a boat on a wakeboard or water skis. Former trick-ski champion Kent Richardson runs the Somerset-based Bermuda Waterski Centre (335-1012) and offers 30-minute or one-hour lessons.

Swim with the dolphins Meet, swim and play with Bermuda’s resident dolphins at Dockyard. From watching for free to 30-minutes of swimming and snorkelling with the dolphins ($230), there is a variety of options. You can book by calling 234-4464 or online at www. dolphinquest.org.

Go deep sea fishing The classic guys’ day out — a boat, a cooler full of beers and the epic battle of man and beast. Most commercial fishing boats run half and full day trips, with rods, tackle and bait provided. Usually you are allowed to keep some of what you catch. See www.bermuda.com/ fishing for a full list of charter fishermen in Bermuda. ■

Drugs and alcohol will not just damage one’s health but also our community munity and the social fabric of our lives. Our Government is concerned about ences. the increasing and high incidence of drug and alcohol-related offences. For instance, in 2008, approximately 85% of those arrested for traffic offences failed the breathalyzer test. Also, in 2008, 329 arrests were made for impaired driving, while in 2010 that number increased to 390. All of Bermuda needs to pull together to tackle this problem.

Your Life. Your Community. No Place for Drugs. To find out more about drugs and alcohol control initiatives, contact ct the Department for National Drug Control (DNDC).
