The BVI Spring Regatta is one of the largest regattas in the entire Caribbean - it is most certainly the largest in both the US Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico and the British Virgin Islands. This year we had 159 entries with more excitement than ever. As always, I am writing about it; however, this year I chose to write feature stories on the two women's teams representing the BVI. Both crews are personal friends so it was not at all difficult to find the words to describe their sailing abilities, enthusiasm and the hard work that these gals put into this 3-day event. ASA Instructor Pat Nolan leads her crew on BOOMORANG with fellow writer and America's Cup PR gal Val Doane leads SYNERGY - a WAVE TEAM (Women Against Violence Everywhere) that will represent us well in the upcoming Bermuda Race in June '06. WAY TO GO GALS !!

Our Governor and Janet Macan started things off for the 35th Annual BVI Spring Regatta with their yearly gala at the Governor's Mansion. Tom has sailed with David many times since coming to the BVI and has been most instrumental in helping acquire funds for the Tortola Island Sloops. Janet is a personal friend and fellow adventurer. I have truly enjoyed knowing them both during their tenure in the BVI. We all wish them well in their retirement at ther 400 year old home in Ambleside, Cumbria, UK. GOOD LUCK JANET & TOM - YOU LEAVE A TRUE VACANCY IN THE BVI !!!!
