Nanny Cay has added an island-style garbage truck to its fleet of vehicles that includes Travelifts and backhoes. This new garbage truck will enable better management of garbage removal around the property.
“Anyone seen Avery?” “He’s doing the mosquitoes,” comes the reply. It’s Thursday. And Avery has been “doing the mosquitoes” every Thursday for the last five years.
We recently invested in a new filtration system for the boatyard manufactured by Encyclon Inc, a leading cyclonic filtration system manufacturer. This new system will give us another level of water filtration on the hundreds of boats that are hauled and pressure-washed in our boatyard every year.
Nanny Cay has installed Tortola’s first marine waste pump-out facility on the new K dock near the entrance to the marina. The US-built SaniSailor marine pump-out system can remove waste at 20-35 gallons per minute. This will feed into Nanny Cay’s existing waste treatment plant which currently processes approximately 19,000 gallons of waste water per day.
For those of us who love to sail the sea is a sanctuary. It is our place of adventure, our home away from home and our playpen. But two comprehensive studies — by the 2003 Pew Oceans Commission and the U.S. Commission on Ocean Policy — have made it dramatically apparent that our beloved ocean is severely threatened. With that in mind, the 2009 BVI Spring Regatta and Sailing Festival has joined forces with Sailors for the Sea to reduce the pollution generated by the regatta and to promote ocean awareness to others. March 30 – April 5, 2009, the BVI Spring Regatta and Sailing Festival with Nanny Cay's support as presenting sponsor will be going “clean and green”.
