Editors' Letter

Spring is in the air—and on our waters and across our sandy shores.

Spring is all over Cane Garden Bay and at The Baths during the day, and spilled over into our bars and restaurants at night. Spring is busying up our airports and marinas, and is occupying our villas and resorts. It’s adding life to our parties and fuel to our economy.  Spring brings the final dr...

Virgin Islands divers take aim on lionfish


Soon after the invasive lionfish first breeched Virgin Islands waters and made itself known to this delicate aquatic ecosystem, officials began to take count. In June, BVI marine biologist Shannon Gore announced that the first lionfish had been captured in BVI waters, off the coast of Anegada. A week later, she announced another catch. Then r...

Training for the Biggest Sporting Event of the Year

I arrived at the BVI Watersports Centre in Manuel Reef on a Thursday evening as kids of all ages darted from the shed to the dinghies to the dock, rigging up Picos, grabbing life jackets and putting Laser 2000s onto trailers.

Cane Garden Bay Rehabilitation
The Community Comes Together

LORAN, is that you?
LORAN, is that you? The next new thing looks familiar

As we increasingly pack our fragile navigational eggs into an already crowded basket, the potential for Doomsday-type scenarios is becoming increasingly stronger. The first of these troubling outlooks centres around the period of hectic sunspot activity which began about a year ago and which will continue into 2013.

The Lady Constance
A historical BVI vessel rides through the waves of time


 She must have been a magnificent sight flying across Road Harbour, with her huge mainsail and three foresail sails up. Perhaps a rather unusual rig for a locally built boat, but there is a small black and white photograph to prove it—one of several photographs taken by then-Agricultural Officer WC Fishlock around ...

A Purchasing Fiesta Mexico Style

Why Mexico for my next buying trip? The fresh seafood tacos, chorizo, mole sauce, Corona, tequila, stringy cow cheese, margaritas, guacamoles, hot peppers; I am sure I forgot something. Of course! Amazing handicrafts for our boutiques and interior shops we have on Tortola.

Pleasure in a Pineapple

I have always associated pineapples with leisure. There’s nothing like a fruity pineapple-infused cocktail to make me feel like I’m on vacation, and pineapple is frequently on the menu when I host long, leisurely brunches.
    
But preparing a fresh pineapple is not a particularly leisurely task, and cutting into a whole pineapple can seem intimidati...
