With summer around the corner, things traditionally start to lighten a little bit on the season as the weather heats up. In this issue, our editor David delves deep into the roots of sailing and advice, as an instructor that’s all David will tell you—it’s simple and good advice. Over the next couple months, we explore our traditional annual issues of diving and alternative sports—activities that spill off from enjoying sailing out here. In this issue, at almost the end of racing season, we dedicate our cover to one of the season’s most successful boats, LIME, which happens to be skippered by our skipper, Colin Rathbun. Hats off all around.
Another source of pride for us is our involvement as the production team for the second edition of the BVI Marine Awareness Guide, which will be out this month. Donations from local photographers and generous sponsors made the Guide something to be proud of and a reference for generations. We hope you will savour a copy. Learn in this issue what to do if you spot one of the lionfish that have invaded BVI waters. Also catch us online at www.bviyg.com.
Last month, a friend and pillar of the sailing community, Guy Eldridge, passed away whilst racing in St Thomas. I met Guy like many others, talking about sailing. From joining him on Luxury Girl to him putting me forward at the Yacht Club, our talks were of going hard on the water and giving back to the community to keep it all going. He was a good man and will be remembered in many circles, a true journeyman.
Sail fast, like you mean it.
