As we begrudgingly accept the fact that sargassum weed is now a long-term aspect of marina management in the Caribbean, we are investigating solutions to most effectively minimise its impact.

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.Read More

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.

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”.
