Editor's Letter
June 2012

Summertime, and the living’s easy.

It’s that time of the year when things slow down—even more so than usual. Cruise ships visit sparingly and tourist traffic generally drips in. Beaches empty, and the warm breeze whispers gently. There’s a lot to look forward to in the season deemed slow by tourism speak. Who can’t appreciate lazy ...

VISAR Rescued Me

The Virgin Islands Search and Rescue boat sped across the Sir Francis Drake Channel toward Salt Island to conduct a training rescue on an acting casualty—me. As the 29-foot, bright orange RIB bounced and bounded through the mildly choppy water at 45 knots, volunteer crew Paul Hubbard asked if I was comfortable with the speed. “It’s fine,” I lied. I wan...

From the Underwater Lens
Playing in the Pool

Paul Hubbard first began his underwater pool portraits three years ago, shortly after inspiration hit while videoing a ballet performance. The dancer’s almost effortless performance—her body swaying and contouring in harmony—inspired the career photographer and cinematographer to capture similar motions in a dissimilar setting. &ld...

Memorable, Historical and Comfortable Hammocks

Some of my most vivid memories in the Virgin Islands feature hammocks—playing on the enormous blue and purple climbing hammocks at Trellis Bay, stretching out among the boulders above the sea at Baraka Point Estate, swinging on a double chair hammock while listening to The Elmtones play in Cane Garden Bay, and watching the stars from a ha...

YCCS Virgin Gorda Marina and Clubhouse:
New Elegance in the North Sound

General Manager Keith Mutch welcomed me and Dan O’Connor onto the massive dock at Yacht Club Costa Smeralda, Virgin Gorda, where I felt like a munchkin next to berths built for superyachts. Keith led us up the coralstone stairs to the square bar at the top of the clubhouse. The GM reminded me of a younger, taller An...

Windows & Doors
Steve Fox, Managing Director OBMI

Windows and doors. Not the sexiest subject for an article—you might think. But wait! Before you turn the page, consider that the cost of these elements in a beautiful new home in the Virgin Islands can amount to between 15 to 25 percent of the overall building construction cost. Given that even the most modest three-bedroom home is lik...

Cleanup crews take to Cane Garden Bay

I’ve lived in Cane Garden Bay for more than two years—and I can’t think of anywhere else in the Virgin Islands I’d rather be. The cozy community provides all the necessities and beauties I could ask for. But its plentiful splendors are no secret. Hoards of tourists head down to the popular travel destination by rental ca...

Endless Fascinations

Aileen Malcolm draws inspiration from the bright rays that shine heavy on the Virgin Islands. Her use of vibrant colours, detailed textures and comical scenes from the VI help characterize her work. She works mainly with watercolour and pen and largely displays scenes from the British Virgin Islands, where she has called home for the past 24 years—but she thrives o...
