The winners were announced tonight in the culinary competition at the 2012 Antigua Charter Yacht Show. This is a challenging and prestigious competition that pits the best of the best charter yacht chefs among one another.

A full list of all the winners appears below, but I want to give a special shout-out to chef Jerry Pond of the 130-foot Westport motoryacht Arioso. Jerry placed second overall in last year’s competition, and this year took second place in the coffee category as well as first place overall in Arioso’s size range. He’s been called to the podium three times in two years—something that is about as rare as seeing a black bear traipsing through the Admiral’s Inn at Antigua.

Kudos to Jerry, and to all of this year’s winners:

Best use of coffee, yachts 100 feet and smaller: third place, Audrey Harper, 59-foot sailing catamaran Flow; second place, Toni Leslie, 82-foot sailing yacht Inukshuk; first place, Emma Whicher, 67-foot sailing yacht More Magic.

Best use of coffee, yachts 101 to 159 feet: third place, Jacob Ebert, 112-foot motoryacht Symphony II; second place, Jerry Pond, 130-foot motoryacht Arioso; first place, James Catling, 146-foot motoryacht Harle (who put on a fantastic lunch that I attended this week).

Best use of coffee, yachts 160 feet and larger: third place, Morgan Lonergan, 170-foot sailing yacht Red Dragon; second place, Chef Marcus, 196-foot CRN motoryacht Darlings Danama; first place, Richard Parnell, 168-foot motoryacht Lazy Z.

Best table setting, yachts 100 feet and smaller: stewardess Casey Barnes, 75-foot sailing catamaran Matau (which also won this category last year).
