Editor's Letter
Should I stay or should I go?


The question, famously prompted by Mick Jones and The Clash, is on the minds of many BVI residents over the summer season. The long and lazy months provide enticing incentive to get away to a nearby tropical destination—or out of the Caribbean entirely. Great deals abound in this region in the off-season. Also equally alluring is a trip within ...

US Racing with BVI Pride

When Alec Anderson left the BVI two years ago to attend Roger Williams University in Bristol, Rhode Island, he swapped the familiar trade winds and warm Virgin Islands waters for the cold and confusing currents of New England. He moved forward into his freshman year, as a versed fleet sailor, eager to try his hand at team racing and college living. At the end of his freshma...

Energy and Tourism

Caribbean tourism can be broken down into land-based guests, charter guests and cruise ship visitors, with the greatest revenue generated by those staying in the region for the duration of their vacation. Historically, it’s apparent we haven’t given much thought to the expense of travel for vacationers eying the British Virgin Islands, since consistent economic growth...

Dinghy Sailing Solo

I started my first solo dinghy sailing lesson on land. At Manuel Reef Marina, Alison Knights Bramble asked young sailor Akeem David to help with my land drills by pulling out the Pico on the trailer and providing counterbalance by sitting on the boat as she showed me how to tack and gybe on the small, blue plastic boat. I hopped on after watching and imitated her actions. Each t...

Home Entertainment 101

Ever wondered what to do on a limited budget with the unused space downstairs by the cistern? One option is to consider a home theatre, which is ideally suited to the dark and quiet space below. All you need is a 10’ x 12’ space and you could be watching movies on a high definition 102” screen with surround sound for under $15,000.

Anegada by AIR

I first visited Anegada in 1966 to try and locate the disbanded NASA tracking station at West End Point. The facility had been built by the US agency to track the early space rockets being fired from Cape Canaveral down the Atlantic firing range in the 1950s and early 1960s. The closest splashdown was just 60 miles north of Anegada by astronaut Scott Carpenter in the Aurora 7 space ...

Composting Revisited

Composting Revisited

In the December/January issue of BVI Property & Yacht, I wrote an article about how to start a compost pile in the BVI. My original research into composting resulted from finding out that 30-40% of the trash at Pockwood Pond was organic, compostable waste. I followed the advice of an experienced composter and started a pile. Unfortunately, a few weeks later, we saw our firs...

Brushstrokes from BALI

Kadek Sudana sometimes paints canvases full of brightly couloured tropical flora, his inspiration perhaps drawn from the lush surroundings of his native Bali. At times, he choses to paint creative caricatures of celebrities; other times, funky monkeys and other cuddly creatures. The humble Indonesian artist considers his work fun—a hobby recently transformed into a budd...
