It’s that time of year again! It always amazes me how quickly our Festival week comes around each year… a true sign of a busy and great year!
The BVI is alive with colourful banners, music events, pagaents, parades, food fairs, street dancing and an array of vibrant celebrations. This year’s BVI Emancipation celebrations fall between 28th July – 9th August where everyone comes together to showcase the culture and history of our beautiful island and its people.
If you have not yet had the chance to take part in this annual event, check out the details on the BVI Tourism website and start planning for 2018!

Changes in Latitude was hauled for survey and painting in November 2016. a survey report is available on request.
The 39i is a great yacht for a family, or three couples to take sailing. There is a well ventilated forward v-berth and two roomy aft cabins that can accommodate up to six people. The salon and galley are spacious and offer good head room and options for dining, or everybody can relax and enjoy some drinks and watch the sunset in the open cockpit.
The twin helm positions offer up good visibility whilst sailing to make sure you are pinching to windward nicely and the access through the transom makes it easy to jump in for a swim at the end of your sail.
