Welcome to the September issue of BVI Yacht Guide
Whilst we have been monitoring trends in the traditional low season out here, we are starting to notice that several trends seem to be coming along quite nicely to the BVI. In light of recent downturns in the US economy, sadly many St Thomas companies have had to head back to the mainland in search of bigger volumes. David brings us the full report of how some of the USVI tourists, seeking adventurous attractions that are now missing from the USVI, are making their way to the BVI to enjoy the facilities we have to offer. We would like to refer to that as having the best of both worlds. Keep it coming! Other industry insights tell us that they are having a busy summer, too, which means that the season ahead looks even more promising.
In other insights, our local boy Alec Anderson did well abroad this season, and his coach Chris Watters has been providing us with some excellent updates of his progress. We hope you enjoy the star fruit recipe from Susie Younkle, and as we continue to enjoy some sunnier weather between torrential downpours, we take some heart that like many of you travelling this summer, that as good as it is to get away, there really is no place like home and that being an island is pretty special all round for everyone.
Enjoy the summer winds and explore while you can, with smiles.
See you out on the water.
