SUMMER HIGHLIGHT FROM THE

Editor

Sail The Sea Lover! It’s August in Bermuda and the heat is on. We can’t think of a better way to spend a day or evening than sailing the open waters in and around Bermuda aboard the Sea Lover! Ana Luna a 45’ Luxury Catamaran explores the scenic and historic sights of Bermuda’s eastern end on a variety of excursions. Private cruises are available for full, half day, and overnight live aboard trips. Sail around the island and anchor in some pretty cute spots while enjoying a variety of menu options or choose your own catering services. Regular Sail, Snorkel & Swim cruises are scheduled weekly and after sailing past Bermuda’s scenic and historic eastern end anchor in a picturesque and private location then explore Bermuda’s underwater world! Sunset Cruises are also scheduled weekly sailing past ancient forts, railway relics, ferry docks and then find yourself captivated by a stunning panoramic sunset. Feels like you are sailing right into it for at least an hour, pure bliss and very romantic. Bioluminescent Glow Worm Cruises are scheduled two to three days after the full moon. According to our records the next full moon is on August 21 and we can confirm that there is a Glow Worm Spectacular Wine Cruise scheduled on August 24 from 7:30pm - 9:30pm featuring fine wines and canapes by Discovery Wines. Space is limited so you should call 441 296 9463 right now if you are interested. Captain Nathan will likely have additonal Glow Worm Crusies scheduled however you will have to contact him directly for details. For those wondering what a Glow Worm is, they are cute little creatures that live in Bermuda’s shallow and protected waters. What’s all the fuss about? A few days after a full moon during the warmer months their mating ritual begins approximately fourty-five minutes after sunset and lasts for about thirty minutes. They swarm to the surface and what you see is thousands of wiggly glowing worms frolicing at sea. It is one of the many spectacular shows that nature puts on for us every year. What are you waiting for? Give Captain Nathan a call and get onboard! Call 441 504 3780 or visit www.AnaLunaAdventures.com for more information.

BERMUDA haha Another Trip To Ikea By Roger Crombie

I’m just back from shopping at Ikea. Although Bermuda doesn’t have one, Ikea stores are wildly popular almost everywhere else. One in 10 human beings was apparently conceived in an Ikea bed. That bed has certainly seen some action. Ikea sells reliable furnishings (and meatballs) cheaply. To balance the karma, it subjects shoppers to one of the definitively hellish experiences of their lifetimes. Most of us find the horror a relatively small price to pay for a bookcase that will last until the year 6000. I wasn’t actually shopping today. I accompanied my brother, in search of a shelving unit. He chose a Sunday afternoon for this exercise, a day on which the Ikea store was guaranteed to be heaving like the mighty ocean in a tsunami. We found and entered the store easily enough, but within seconds were hopelessly lost, moving against a seething torrent of humanity. We asked an assistant for help and he sent us to entirely the wrong place. By this point, I would traditionally have lost the will to live, but I wasn’t shopping and so regarded the entire thing with a detached sense of amusement — the more so when my brother began to lose his rag. He is usually the most placid of fellows, but in an Ikea store on a Sunday afternoon, all bets are off. Luckily, he found what he was looking for just before he was going to jam a three-piece suite down the throat of the helper who had misdirected us. We located the actual shelves downstairs. My brother grabbed a trolley from some unsuspecting nitwit and loaded it up with bits of shelving. Off we toddled to the check-out area. We found ourselves in the self-service queue. You know how, in supermarkets, you can process and pay for your own groceries with a machine? It’s considered more reliable and cheaper than check-out people. I never use such machines, preferring not to rob someone of a job. Ikea now has such a system, and it’s quite amusing watching people give themselves hernias lugging furniture onto and off the conveyor belt thingie. My brother began ringing up his purchases. Waiting in the queue, we had added a pile of extras — chocolate bars, meatballs and such — to the shelving. When the stupid machine broke down (as they always do) half-way through the transaction, a woman came over and helped, repeatedly swiping a card and only somewhat castigating us for our haplessness. We finally made our way out of the store, using the “Travelator”. Travel later, more likely. You can’t use the Travelator with a cart; you have to take the lift. But one is not told this until after one has entered the Travelator area, by which time turning back throws everything into even worse chaos. At home, we found that the extras had failed to register on the check-out machine. My brother promptly revised his plans about firebombing every Ikea store in the world. We’re going back tomorrow, for more free chocolate.

The new fragrance, vivid and intense. The composition opens with fresh accords of neroli, bitter orange and pear. The heart is ruled by white flowers: jasmine (from India, known as grandiflorum), lily of the valley (white and green) and orange blossom, while musk, vanilla and fine woods lurk in the background and give the composition powdery character.

Art Matters Beat the Heat: Visit the Cool Art at the BNG and BNG East By lisa howie, Director, bermuda National Gallery

James Cooper, Movement Experiment #1, 2009, archival inkjet print on pearl paper

Recently, I was giving a tour to a friend of mine who was home for a holiday. Lana Young is a Bermudian actor who started Hollywood Theatre Lab in Charlottesville, V.A. in order to teach life skills through the performing arts. We talked about how she had to leave the country to develop her talent for acting, voice overs, and directing; years ago, scholarships and programmes to encourage youth in the arts were rare. This month, by contrast, Bank of Bermuda Foundation announces the John D. Campbell Arts Scholarship for $30,00 p.a. enabling a local talent to follow their artistic dreams and, I hope, return to enrich our lives. Going overseas to develop personal skills and have fulfilling experiences also works in reverse. In the Ondaatje Wing at the Bermuda National Gallery, we showcase the David L. White Gift to the BNG, a beautiful collection of land, sea and architecture themed paintings rendered by acclaimed American Impressionists in the early to mid 20th century. These artists came here for inspiration. They were captivated by the magical light, by the canvases of our buildings, by the brilliance in the surrounding waters. For those of us fortunate to live here, the natural beauty around us often becomes common; seeing the artwork on display encourages a fresh perspective out of doors. As the summer season turns up the temperature I encourage you to seek a cool retreat in the Bermuda National Gallery, located in City Hall & Arts Centre, Hamilton, and the newly opening BNG East, St. George’s. Admission is free at both sites. The BNG East, located in historic Bridge House, St. George’s, is adjacent to the Towne Square. The BNG East opens with James Cooper: Contemporary Conversation. Cooper is a local artist whose primary medium is photography. He tends to explore common objects in unusual ways, making images that are at once playful, symbolic, and romantic. It is an interesting juxtaposition, this contemporary expression within a 17th century Bermuda National Trust property, itself within the UNESCO World Heritage Site of St. George’s. Journey East to explore The Bermuda Perfumery, St. Peter’s Church, forts, beaches, and more. Come soon to enjoy what the BNG has to offer. Take away a memento of your experience with the BNG’s Impressions of Bermuda art book for $25. 56 This Week in Bermuda | AUGUST 2013

In the Arts Youth Camera Action with Kayla Williams By Candice Dickinson

Kayla Williams and her photography. The Youth Camera Action (YCA) Photography Programme, generously sponsored by BTC, is an opportunity for Bermuda’s Youth to develop their camera skills. The summer programme is open to all middle school students (11-14). All skill levels are encouraged to participate. All cameras and supplies are provided! Meet Kayla Williams, a former YCA student and current teacher! What inspired the decision to join YCA? My brother was part of my inspiration. He attended the YCA program in 2009 when he was thirteen, and later after graduating the program became a mentor and was employed for the YCA summer camp. After seeing his progress and evaluation I considered attempting the same thing. I myself was already enrolled in the student docent program; giving tours to visitors of the gallery, and was already familiar with the BNG and one of its student programs. I then evolved to museum studies; the next level of docent training and further ventured into photography. Ms Dany Pen mentored me and taught me all I needed to know about a standard canon 150 and more, before hiring me for work at the BNG’s YCA summer camp in 2012. It was a great experience for teaching as well as learning for my students and myself. What is a typical day like at YCA? We go though a different setting everyday during camp. We would normally start off with the shutter speed setting that focuses on controlling how long the lens/eye of the camera stays open. It allows the user to capture various shots of movement from slow movement to quick movement. Please tell us what you have you gained from being apart of the program. I have learned to use the many different settings on a standard quality camera that most people tend not know about or use. These settings enhance the quality and structure of your picture and add a distinctiveness to them because you took the picture and didn’t Photoshop it afterwards. You can develop your own style and make it unique. I’ve learned patience, for when it comes to taking certain pictures you may have to wait until the precise moment to get exactly what you want. Also learning that not everyone is willing to have his or her picture taken! And last is that of course working with children and teenagers is not the easiest thing to manage. It requires many virtues and a passion for what you do. If you love what you do you should love teaching it and it gives you drive to push forward through the hard things and know that you can pass this passion on to the next person. It’s sensational and the kids are really inspiring, I love working with them. It truly is a magical experience to be able to pass this passion of photography on to them though my eyes. What advice can you offer other people who might want to join the program? I would definitely say go for it! Nothing is holding you back from taking the plunge into this amazing and expressive form of art. It is for absolutely any and everyone, and as they say at the BNG: You Belong Here. 58 This Week in Bermuda | AUGUST 2013

Golf Across the islAnd It’s All About the Game By kim Swan jp, Teaching Professional Port Royal Golf Developmental Program

Hosting the PGA Grand Slam of Golf has unquestionably raised the level of interest in Port Royal Golf Course both locally and internationally. Being able to watch the world’s great players on our signature public course has clearly sent out a positive message to the golfing world that Bermuda not only has high quality public and private golf courses but our people are keen on the game as well. Recently, one of my students asked me about my passion for teaching golf and it was easy to share how my love for the game of golf was developed at Port Royal Golf Course shortly after its opening in 1970. Credit and respect must be given to the all embracing spirit of inclusiveness incorporated by the Trustees of the Port Royal Golf Course of that era as executed by our first Golf Professional Walter E. King in 1970. Today, golfers of all skill levels and backgrounds from around the globe can be heard critiquing their game at Port Royal Golf Course and invariable, most often it is a tale of, “ could of, should of and if only ........” I should have hit more club into #1 green I could have parred #16 had I not 3 putted If only the ball had not rolled back into that deep bunker I submit that playing the game of golf requires the golfer to use sound fundamentals while swinging rhythmically on a good swing path - commonly referred to as the swing plane while keeping their approach to the game positive. It also requires that the golfer mentally play one shot at a time and accept the out come that they get. Hence, we encourage our players to work on their short games to combat the unexpected. Living legend Gary Player, who once represented a top Bermuda resort in the 1960’s, had a great saying, “if you want to master golf, the answer is in the dirt”, telling golfers directly that relentlessly practicing the correct technique will make them a better golfer. At Port Royal Golf Course we are fortunate to have a comprehensive public golf facility that affords the golfer the opportunity and facilities to practice and develop all aspects of their golf game. Our aim with the Port Royal Golf Developmental Program is to provide coaching that encourages our students to practice and we attempt to clearly articulate how to hit quality golf shots by delivering the club head through the ball squarely. Through it all it is the game of golf that makes the golf industry. The ball, club, teeing ground, green, fairway, bunkers, the golfer and most importantly the spirit of the game which is described best in the rules of golf section I. Etiquette “Spirit of the Game” “ Golf is played, for the most part, without supervision of a referee or umpire. The game relies on the integrity of the individual to show consideration for others and to abide by the Rules. All players should conduct themselves in a disciplined manner, demonstrating courtesy and sportsmanship at all times, irrespective of how competitive they may be. This is the spirit of the game.” The game of the golf has grown into a lucrative industry - but in all endeavors and exploits - the integrity of this great game must be upheld. In my respectful opinion, going forward, the growth of golf industry must be centered around the game of golf itself - for it is the game, played in a tranquil setting in a gentlemanly manner and enjoyed at various levels that make it the hub around which the wheel of the golf industry revolves. www.thisweek.bm 61

Heritage Matters The Legendary Voyage of a Modern Argonaut By Dr. Edward Harris, MBE JP

Damaged bow of HMS Argonaut, Cross Island left background.

While Bermuda is a world and millennia away from the mythological Argonauts, during the Second World War, we connected with a modern ship of the name, which made a legendary voyage across the North Atlantic, after sustaining damage from a U-boat. In early December 1942, HMS Argonaut joined the warships of “Force Q�, which was engaged in the interception of Axis shipping in the Mediterranean. The Force found a convoy and sank four troopships and the Italian destroyer Folgore. On 13 December, Argonaut joined HMS Aurora, Quality and Eskimo in pursuit of another convoy, which was not intercepted. The next day, two torpedoes fired by the Italian submarine Mocenigo struck Argonaut and her stern and part of the bow were blown off. Having lost her rudder and the use of two of HMS Argonaut at Bermuda, Admiralty her four propellers, Argonaut made its way to Floating Dock #1 left background. Gibraltar with the two remaining propellers. The ship remained at Gibraltar until April, undergoing repairs to bulkheads in the stern and strengthening of those in the bows. While holding fast, the bulkheads moved several feet under the pressure of water in sea trials. Nonetheless, Argonaut left Gibraltar for Ponta Delgada in the Azores on 4 April 1942, still rudderless and with only the two forward propellers. Bound thereafter for Bermuda, Argonaut was sighted by USS Butler, which accompanied her 64 This Week in Bermuda | AUGUST 2013


Heritage Matters into the island, where she was “berthed bows North in the South Basin at 1800 hrs, Saturday 17 April 1943� at the Royal Navy Dockyard. At Bermuda, Argonaut was photographed alongside and two pictures reproduced here show the damage to her bow from port and starboard views. Two days later, Argonaut was raised in Admiralty Floating Dock 1, where pictures were taken of the bulkheads in bow and stern. The photograph of the stern presented here shows the two forward propellers and the truncated shafts of the others. No rudder is present, as the stern had been destroyed up to the line of the forward props. After the inspection and some repairs, the ship was undocked on 22 April, but had to wait until 27 April for escorts USS Tumult and USS Pioneer, in order to sail for the Philadelphia Navy Yard. By mid-November 1943, the repairs to HMS Argonaut were completed and she HMS Argonaut in AFD1 with the surviving returned to the war, first at Normandy two of four propellers. where she fired over 4300 shells in support of the landing forces and later in the Mediterranean. In late 1944, Argonaut saw her last action in the East Indies and thereafter in the Pacific. Her last voyage in those parts was to Shanghai and Hong Kong to take British internees home. The ship was placed in reserve in 1946 and scrapped nine years later. With a gaping hole in her bows and without her stern, rudder and two aft propellers, HMS Argonaut transited the Atlantic under wartime conditions with weak bulkheads, using only her two surviving propellers. That was a remarkable feat of seamanship of which legends are made and in which Bermuda played a small part two generations ago. HMS Argonaut at sea after repairs at Philadelphia Naval Yard.

Do You Know... … about Sterling Silver Souvenir Spoons – Bermuda’s Most Exclusive Souvenirs? Part 1 By Horst Augustinovic

With the birth of leisure tourism, collecting souvenir spoons became a popular hobby in Europe during the late 1800s. The first American souvenir spoon was made in 1889 to mark the 100th anniversary of the presidency of George Washington. This was followed quickly by a Martha Washington spoon and one year later by a Salem Witch spoon. Interest in souvenir spoons suddenly exploded and in 1891 several books on collecting souvenir spoons were published. With the 1893 Chicago World Fair, also known as the Columbian Exposition, which commemorated the 400th anniversary of Christopher Columbus’s arrival in the New World, the Golden Age of souvenir spoons had truly begun. Many souvenir spoons can be considered works art as they were exquisitely engraved, sculptured or enameled and are today highly desirable collectables. It did not take long for Bermuda to get caught up in the spoon collecting phenomenon. One of the first to sell them was Duncan McColl Doe, a jeweler on Front Street. He offered several styles, one spoon showing a skyline of Hamilton, and another with no less than six Bermuda themes on both sides of the handle, from onions to a boy eating a slice of watermelon, the Natural Arches, a vegetable seller with his horse drawn cart, the Gibbs Hill Lighthouse and the Hamilton Princess Hotel.

This Duncan M. Doe souvenir spoon shows the skyline of Hamilton, including White’s Island in the foreground. It is 5-3/8” long.

5-1/2” long, this Duncan M. Doe spoon shows several popular Bermuda themes on both sides of the handle – a pair of onions, a boy eating a slice of watermelon, the natural arches, a vegetable seller with his donkey cart and, on the back, the Gibbs Hill Lighthouse and the Princess Hotel. Both spoons show the Royal Palms at Crow Lane in the bowl. 66 This Week in Bermuda | AUGUST 2013


Do You Know George W. Schiebler, a famous New York jeweler, made a wonderful series of Bermuda spoons in the art nouveau style, while other manufacturers such as Charles M. Robbins, Chester Shepard and Watson & Newell of Massachusetts produced a large variety of Bermuda souvenir spoons as well as ladles, butter knifes, tea strainers, etc. Today, souvenir spoon collecting is a niche hobby, with serious collectors specializing in the spoons of the turn of the 20th century, either by type of spoon or a location such as Bermuda.

Schiebler souvenir spoons were made in two sizes – 5-3/4” and 4-3/8”. Exquisitely crafted in the art nouveau style of the turn of the 20th century, these spoons were only made for a few exclusive locations, such as Bermuda, Hawaii and San Francisco.

The bowls of Schiebler spoons are engraved with Bermuda scenes and the back of the handles are stamped with the ‘Winged S’ Schiebler logo and are engraved ‘Bermuda’.

The Chef’s Table The TWiB Team learns more about the Culinary Team at The Fairmont Hamilton Princess and what is involved in creating a new menu. We sat down with Executive Chef Thomas Frost and Assistant Chef Takemore Mukazika who is here with us all the way from Zimbabwe! Chef Mukazika prepared three dishes for our sampling pleasure under the direction of Chef Frost. Chef Frost explained that Chef de Cuisine Trent Mayhew designed the new menu under his direction. Careful to allow Chef Mayhew to explore his creative side, Chef Frost offered valuable advice on flavour profiles, and ensured that the new dishes reflected current trends in major cities such as New York City and Atlanta. Chef Frost explained that today everyone is trying to eat healthy but in a restaurant you have to be really careful not to give up flavours and textures when focusing on lifestyle dishes that cater to particular health preferences, which is exactly what the new menu focuses on. He also ensures that the menu keeps its Bermudian identity, using authentic Bermudian flavours, local produce and alwaysfreshly caught fish from local fishermen when available. Chef Frost also explained that the menu reflects produce that is in season, which guarantees the freshest selection possible! A Sneak Peek At The New Menu! Seared Jumbo Sea Scallops & Codfish Cakes

Bermuda Fun Golf By Candice Dickinson

The name says it all. Fun Golf is the newest place to have fun in Bermuda. Located in the Royal Naval Dockyard adjacent to Snorkel Park, Fun Golf features 18 challenging and exciting holes designed to represent the top golf holes in Bermuda, USA and Scotland. Whether you are familiar with these holes or not, it doesn’t matter – you are bound to have FUN. Bermuda Fun Golf is for all levels and is the perfect place for the whole family. The picturesque, panoramic view guarantees a memorable experience. Make sure to stay on the look out for the waterfall flowing into multiple salt-water ponds displaying a variety of Bermudian fish. A sneak peak at what you can expect when you visit the first 6 holes that represent the top holes at Clubs right here in Bermuda! Hole 1 - Mid Ocean # 5

The famous Cape Hole at Mid Ocean Club is one of the most photographed, written about, and copied holes in the golf world. Hole 2 - Belmont Golf Club # 18

Hole 8 plays uphill all the way up to the green, which is guarded by bunker in front and to the right. Hole 3 - Port Royal #16

Port Royal’s signature 16th is widely regarded as one of the greatest par threes in golf and is a crescent-shaped beauty with a ravine dropping down to the Atlantic Ocean between the tee and the pin. Hole 4 - Ocean View #1

A tricky par 5 where you have to cross Barkers Hill road to find the fairway. Hole 5 - Riddles Bay #8

A spectacular hole where you have to play around the bay of Little Sound. Hole 6 - Tuckers Point #9

The elevated green behind the pond makes this a spectacular and tricky hole. 70 This Week in Bermuda | AUGUST 2013

The Poor Mans Breakfast Codfish & Potatoes With Barry DeCouto, Flanagan’s Irish Pub & Outback Sports Bar By Candice Dickinson

Back in the day a tradition was born when the average Bermudian would pick up a bag of Codfish, a sack of potatoes, a few eggs, an avocado and a banana for just ten – fifteen shillings, go home and create a delicious breakfast for the whole family that would keep them going all day long! This was known as The Poor Mans Breakfast and today it is the most popular meal across the island on Saturday and Sunday mornings. The tradition is alive and well with many residents and visitors enjoying this delicious meal on weekends both at home and in restaurants, island wide. It is also a really popular dish on Holidays such as Easter Sunday and Christmas morning. These days Codfish is a little harder to find in it’s native Canadian waters making it a little more expensive, however it will still keep you nice and full until the end of the day providing plenty of energy. Flanagan’s serves the authentic Codfish and Potatoes Breakfast with fresh homemade sauces every Saturday and Sunday from 9:00am until 5:00pm. Enjoy The Poor Man’s Breakfast on the patio overlooking Hamilton Harbour or in the comfort of the main dinning room surrounded by Irish influenced décor. Barry’s Famous Red Sauce! Some just like to keep it simple with a plain butter sauce which is just butter melted down and some like to have sautéed onions and butter but most love Barry’s homemade Red Sauce. Barry starts by slicing his onions and boiling them in water with a little olive oil. He then drains the water and adds stewed tomatoes and diced tomatoes with a little Lea & Perrins, ketchup, chicken stock, brown sugar and butter. He lets it simmer for about an hour and a half to two hours. Codfish is very salty and so it is important to boil it and change the water two or three times, trying to remove as much salt as possible. When you add the semi sweet Red Sauce overtop it is absolutely tremendous. Enjoy this delicious local Bermudian Tradition with a large coffee or tea.

Directions OR SEN D US The Dough Y OUR O 1. Place the flour, yeast, salt, and sugar in a mixer fitted with a dough hook. WN & WIN A COOKB OOK! While mixing, gradually add the water and knead on a low speed until dough is firm and smooth, for approximately 10 minutes. 2. Turn the machine off and pour the oil down inside of bowl. Turn the mixer on low for 15 seconds to coat the inside of the bowl and the surface of the dough. 3. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap, and let the dough rise in a warm area until doubled in size, approximately 2 hours. The Sauce 1. Pour the tomatoes into a bowl and crush them using your hands. 2. Press all of the juices into bowl, and add the oregano and fresh basil. For the Assembly 1. Preheat the oven to 500ºF. If using a pizza stone place inside oven and preheat for one hour in advance. 2. Punch the dough down and cut it in half. Place one half of dough onto a generously floured work surface. With your hands, form the dough into a loose ball and stretch into a circle shape. With a floured rolling pin, roll the dough into a large circle until very thin. If there are any holes in the dough, pinch the edges back together. To prevent the dough from sticking to the counter, turn it over and add flour as needed. 3. Transfer the dough onto a pizza peel. Ladle a thin layer of tomato sauce onto the dough. Sprinkle grated mozzarella over the surface, about ½-in. from the edge, and sprinkle a pinch of oregano on top. 4. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes, or until golden and crispy. Remove from the oven and quickly top with the basil, arugula, slices of prosciutto di parma, and the Parmigiano Reggiano shavings. Finish with a sprinkle of extra-virgin olive oil. Enjoy! This is my all-time favourite pizza!
