Conch News 

After a great season, it was time for us all to have a bit of fun on the docks together. Conch Charters held its' first, of what we hope to be an Annual event, Staff Paper Boat Race

There were 11 entries of all different sizes and conch-coctions. The rules stated that they may be a single or multi hull craft whereby the only means of propulsion is wind.

You could feel the excitement as we all lined the dock to see whose would make it to the next dock first. One or two sank shortly after immersion, some hovered on the spot before turning in the opposite direction, mine sadly decided to get stuck under the dock... despite all the casualties, some actually did what they were supposed to do and sailed beautifully!
After 3 heats and with only one disqualification of Tortola Tug for being a box (and harboring Ben's Canadian Capsizing Canoe disguised as a life raft), Emma's pink slipper was the clear winner!

Did You Know? 


There is such a thing as a 'Conch Pearl'. The Conch Pearl is produced by the Queen Conch mollusk which lives primarily in the Caribbean Seas.  

 

They are extremely rare and are widely admired for their natural beauty and mystique. Research suggests that only 1 in 10 000 Queen Conch will produce a pearl of which approximately only 20% of those posses the qualities to be considered a gem.   

 

 

      
Conch-coction

"Conch's Yellow Bird"

    (a bottle free with every charter)

1/2 oz Creme de Banana

Shake all the ingredients together and pour into a tall glass. Don't forget the pineapple to decorate! (I'm sure every sailor has Creme de banana and Pineapple rum in their home bar...) Cheers! 

 

 
 Testing Question
The home on Steele Point is up for sale for $15Million. It is one of the most distinctive and recognizable villas by sailors in the BVI because of its cliff location that everybody sails past. Where is it located in the BVI?
