Editor’s Notes – Aug

- in Yachting
Welcome to our August issue, and we’re halfway through the summer already. Traditionally August is a month when a lot of people travel abroad; it is also one of the best holidays the BVI has to offer with Emancipation week, where as far as we know just about everyone heads out to make the most of the break right here in the BVI.
For us, it’s a look at old and new. We report on the tradition of building old canoes with a youthful interest in Jost Van Dyke, and we look at one of the BVI’S new boat building enterprises of a day-tripping power cat. Both are proud examples that the roots of the Islands still predominantly focus around the sea.
Speaking of new changes, we welcome Akiya Brewley to our team who joins us from studies overseas and is back to the BVI now working with us in the design department. Also in this issue you will find info on travelling to Dominica with BVI Airways, a Reef Check presentation which achieved a high attendance and also some top recipes from our nautical chef Susie Younkle, whom we have to give a huge congrats to, along with proud husband Matt, on the birth of their baby Elizabeth Jayne, and we give huge thanks for getting us the article before going into labor.
So, as the Summer goes along, we hope you enjoy, and if, like us, you consider this time a little easier to enjoy the islands as the traffic has slowed down a tad, do what you do best and remind yourself why you live here.
See you out on the water.
