We were very pleased to hand over the keys and donate one of our trucks to VI Plastics, a start up plastic recycling company here in the BVI.

VI Plastics can process all types of plastic material. Most plastics are marked with a ‘resin identification’ code (a number from 1 – 7) somewhere on the product. Unmarked plastics, like plastics bags, shrink wrap, cling wrap and styrofoam can also be recycled.  VI Plastics will be creating woven furniture and polywood for construction in 2”x2” and 4”x1” lengths up to 8′ long.

Summer Storage – To Mast Or Not To Mast?

Jul 26, 2018

Nanny Cay is strongly recommending that all monohull boats remove their masts for the summer storage period but it is NOT a requirement.

We are separating monohulls stored without masts from those with masts.  We believe boats stored without masts in their own area will fair better, and suffer less ‘third party damage’ if we have future storm events.

Puerto Rican Navy Appreciation Party

Jul 23, 2018

On Saturday, we held a Puerto Rican Navy Appreciation Party on the beach here at Nanny Cay. A small way for us to say thank you to our Puerto Rican friends that helped so much after the passing of Irma.

After Irma the Puerto Rican Navy filled numerous boats (on one trip alone there were around 50 vessels) with aid and supplies for the people of the BVI. It took them a lot of effort to get the correct permissions and entry permits to be allowed to do this but they persevered and at considerable personal cost, they came across with food, clothing, medication (we know they brought over $1000 of crucial meds for one person here), hygiene products, water, baby supplies, tarpaulins and more.
