Editor’s Notes

Welcome to the March issue of BVI Yacht Guide.

Spring. Delicious. Look out at that Channel and see the activity that is the charter season in its full swing around Tortola, up to Virgin Gorda and nesting at Anegada (with a few cheeky stops at Jost or the anchorages of Norman, Cooper and Peter).

In this issue, we are proud to bring you a range of stories from and about our islands. Recently, my co-editor Traci was able to spend a lot of time with Geoff Holt, the quadriplegic sailor who has been making headlines and history navigating the Atlantic and further afield. Quite a feat and so is the boat! David brings us excellent advice on that often missed cruising tip of stay tensions. Chef Susie shares her passion, and as we push ahead into the season, we prepare for the upcoming Spring Regatta of which amongst many BVI sailors are ourselves.

In the following issue, we are about to bring you the in-depth look behind the scenes of the Regatta and a new initiative from the BVI police force to address menacing thefts at sea. We have reported in the past of petty crimes here, and what we can tell you, as David surely will, is that it is not pretty at all when it happens to you.

For now, we are pleased to report on a new event, BVI Kite Jam and if you are in it, on it or up in the air at it, good luck and wishing you a solid breeze.

We hope you enjoy the issue, as always we had a lot of fun making it.

See you on the water.
