From The Editor

 Irmageddon

Hurricane Irma has just ravaged the islands of St Martin, St Barts, Barbuda and the Virgin Islands ... At the time of going to press, this Category 5 hurricane (on a scale of 1 to 5) was headed towards Haiti, Cuba then Florida.  Its incredible power with winds gusting to more than 300 km/h, waves of 10 to 12 meters, the whole accompanied by torrential rain, leaves only desolation in its wake.

As sailors, we are well aware of the exceptional power of nature. Fortunately, it is rare that we have to encounter such exceptional destructive intensity. The eye-witnesses on the ground have lived a nightmare, some talking about it being like a “nuclear bomb”... The images of desolation coming out of the islands speak for themselves.

The Caribbean will recover from this terrible catastrophe. We will return to St Barts, St Martin, Barbuda and the Virgins. We will return, because the area is simply outstanding and beautiful. We will return, as we returned after Hugo, Luis, Marilyn, Dean or Ivan. We will return, but we will not forget…
