Editor's Note
Editor Editor's Letter


One more year.

That’s what I told myself two years ago at this time. I’ve said it again moving into 2012. One more year. Then I’ll grow up—I promise. I’ll move into an apartment surrounded by others just like it and tall buildings and fast food restaurants and loud horns and fast-moving people who are always on time. I’ll get a job that r...

Learning to Sail Like a Pro

Growing up in the States, I was among many who would give anything to play basketball like Michael Jordan. Gatorade even launched a campaign with the catchy jingle, “Be like Mike.” But only the pros and a select few would ever be able to play a game with MJ and learn from the basketball great. When it comes to sailing, however, the legends of the water a...

Artists' Corner: Wood That Inspires a Work of Art

The slow-growing evergreen can reach up to 60 feet in height and bears the name “tree of life.” Its wood contains medicinal properties that can heal a number of ailments, from the common cold to symptoms related to gout. It is self-lubricating and is purportedly the hardest an...

A VI Christmas Tree

A Virgin Islands Christmas Tree

This seasonal habit of decorating a tree at Christmas time was started in Germany and quickly spread throughout Europe. It’s safe to say the concept must have been brought to the West Indies by the colonists. Except for a few Norfolk pines, no suitable Christmas trees grew here, so spiky limeberry bushes and then the dead flowering stalk of the century pla...

Soaking Up the Sun

We have a surplus of sunny skies here in the Caribbean. This simple fact has long captured the imagination of architects, environmentalists and property owners and led us to the dream of powering our homes, schools and places of work with solar energy. This dream has been variously thwarted by economic, aesthetic, functional, and legislative challenges. Proponents of solar ...

Fury Furry

A brown streak zips across the road in front of you. It happened so quick, you’re not sure what you saw. Maybe a rat, but it seemed bigger. Something like a small Dachshund with really short legs. Like most people, this is probably the closest you will ever get to a mongoose.

While you may not see one very often, the mongoose is actually widespread in the Virgin Islands and i...

Seeing Gold

During her visit to the Virgin Islands for the Bitter End Yacht Club Pro-Am Regatta, Anna Tunnicliffe, Olympic Gold Medalist and 2011 ISAF Rolex World Sailor of the Year, took some time out of her packed schedule to give a presentation to sailing enthusiasts at the Royal BVI Yacht Club. Sailors young and old crowded the burgee-decorated dining room and deck to hear Anna’s tal...

Constructing Change in the Caribbean


Continuing the trend from 2010, this year we have seen a vast disparity in construction costs over the region.

What is most interesting this year is the forecast for declining construction costs up to 2015 as both the global and regional markets take stock of the current and forecasted economic climates. This in turn leads to the reasonab...

Ruling the Caribbean Seas

The RFA Wave Ruler is hard to miss. The 640-foot Royal Fleet Auxiliary vessel dominates Sir Francis Drake Channel when it visits the British Virgin Islands. I first visited the vessel two years ago as a reporter for the BVI Beacon newspaper. In October, I once again visited the vessel as a property and yachting magazine editor. And while the massive ship may not be th...
