Did You Know? 


'Show a Leg' may be the traditional encouragement for a sailor to wake up, but it originated from the old days of sailing when women were allowed to spend the night onboard and a hairless female leg thrust out of the hammock entitled the owner to an extra hours lie-in! 

 

 

  

 

HMS Protector 


The British Virgin Islands has been the new home for the visiting Royal Navy ship, HMS Protector, for the past few weeks. They are currently working to update the nautical maps used in the BVI waters as a part of their Hydrographic survey operation.   

 

     

The ship's 'Humanitarian aid and disaster relief team' has also spent 5 days training alongside with BVI police and fire officers as well as officers from the Department of Disaster Management and the BVI Airports Authority.

 

This specialized training is so beneficial to the territory in making sure that everyone is up to date on current practices.
