For Zumaya – With all my love

My sweet girl passed away quite suddenly on August 2nd.  It started off as an ordinary day - we walked down to the beach in the early morning, she enjoyed her usual relaxing swim at Cane Garden Bay, said hi to her dog and human friends on the beach and we walked home.  She [...]

Update on Corona Virus in the BVI

September 1st 2020 has officially come and gone.  This was the touted and highly anticipated date the BVI Government would start to allow re-entry to tourists. That our borders would be back open.  Instead today we begin another 14 day curfew (1pm - 5am) with no end in sight.  With no PLAN in sight to [...]

COVID 19 and its potential to financially ruin us

Only 2 1/2 years since Irma ripped our lives apart, the virus Covid 19 is now dealing us another blow.  Instead of enquiries for day sails, I am refunding deposits to our guests who are no longer traveling to the BVI. As of today's date, Tortola is symptom free of the virus and the [...]

2 Years On

I seriously dislike having to use Hurricane Irma as a bench mark in my life, but there it is.  Will it ever go away?  Of course it will.  Right now it's not far enough away in the rear view mirror, but one day it will be. For the last 25 years, September 6th has always [...]

Introducing our new boat

They say the best time in a boat owners life is the day they purchase a boat and the day they sell it! After hurricane Irma ripped our lives apart and took everything from us - our boat, our business and our home, saying goodbye to Restless Spirit was definitely NOT the best time [...]

JUNE 6 – 9 MONTHS POST IRMA

The Islands are dotted with boats! Cooper Island has reopened! The Willy T is back! Life is slowly returning to normal! There is still a lot to be done on the Island. Unemployment is still high, the prices at the supermarket are exorbitantly high and since there are few apartments to rent these too have [...]

Six Months Later – My Memories of Hurricane Irma

Hurricane Irma was fast approaching the BVI and we had a busy week of charters booked.  Although we didn't know it at the time, our final charter on Restless Spirit was 2nd September.  It was a private hire for 4 people arriving from San Juan, flying in and out specifically to charter with us for [...]

Back to Tortola

Maggie and I headed back to Tortola on January 19th.  Our first stop was to Village Cay Marina to see our old boat Restless Spirit.  She is tied to the mangroves amongst a fleet of doomed boats, many looked as though they had spent several months under the murky marina waters.  It was definitely a mixed bag of emotions for both of us.
