Editor’s Letter, March 2014

Spring has sprung…

…accompanying its blissful, rejuvenating rays of sunshine returns one of the British Virgin Islands’ most exciting annual events –The BVI Spring Regatta & Sailing Festival. This highly relished occasion celebrates the elements that have made the Territory the highly coveted location it is, in great sailing, diversity, 60 Islands and cays, and yachts in abundance. In light of this revelry, March’s VIPY issue reviewed the BVISR’s foundations, consistent success and blindingly bright future.

We also looked at the BVI’s Nanny Cay Village property – BVI Real Estate that is selling faster than the speed of some of most powerful yachts on the water. Pineapple Place, our exclusive cover feature property located in Belmont Estate on the West End of Tortola, invited us into a beautiful art gallery of a home with a profound aura; a deep, historic presence that can only be emitted from property with its level of intricate, perceptive and artistic design.

Lavina Liburd, a young professional with a wealth of international experience as an architect, set to make a distinct mark in the BVI with her company TigerQi Architecture, explained to us the efforts and conviction required to pursue a career in this industry.

Of course March’s issue would not be complete without an interview with one of the guest artists featuring in the annual Caribbean Arts and Crafts Festival hosted at Trellis Bay this month. Petra Lovrekovic, a well-travelled Mixed Media artist will be making her return to the popular event and talked to us about her fascinating journey as an artist as well as the inspiration the BVI has provided for her.

Enjoy reading.

*** Apologies for the misspelling in the printed article title: ‘Captain’s Perogative’ which is supposed to be ‘Captain’s Prerogative.’ 


Sometimes the translation from ‘Word Ninja’ to ‘Creative Jedi’ can become…confused…suffice to say many people the world over believe the word ‘Prerogative’ is spelled and said ‘Perogative’. It is not. Apologies again from alookingglass.com
