Roundup Vanishing Sail Not long ago, sailing was the only way for people, goods and even news to travel between islands like Tortola and the rest of the world, so boats and their builders were prized. Today, traditional wooden sailboats like the Tortola sloop are often relics of history. The film Vanishing Sail¬– The Story of a Caribbean Tradition takes viewers to Carriacou in the Grenadines, where Alwyn Enoe, one master boat builder, struggles to keep the traditional wooden boat building alive. Screening Wednesday the 22nd at H Lavity Stoutt Community College, Vanishing Sail combines contemporary documentary with archival footage to tell the story of Carriacou’s wooden boat building industry. Filmmaker Alexis Andrews traces the boats’ 19th Century arrival on the island along with Scottish migrants, shares their dominance as cargo and passenger vessels, their modern decline and now, their renewal by a

small but passionate group of traditional wooden boat enthusiasts. “I really hope that people will be inspired to build more vessels in the Caribbean,” Alexis said at a Q&A session at the Annapolis Film Festival, adding that sadly, “The skills of traditional boat building have been lost – really sacrificed – at the altar of tourism.” The film has been received multiple awards since it began being screened in 2015, including a People’s Choice award at the Trinidad & Tobago Film Festival and the Caribbean Spirit Award for Best Overall Feature Film at the Caribbean Tales International Film Festival. If you go to Wednesday’s screening, you’ll be helping support traditional wooden boat building here in the BVI. All the proceeds from the event’s $5 admission will benefit the VI Sloop Foundation.

Pulling the Wrong Person, Part 2 Continuing where we left off last week, here are some more character traits that, when taken overboard, tend to attract romantic partners that will only hurt us in the long run. • You have a tendency to try to fix people. Boy, am I myself guilty of this one. You are not your partner’s counselor, fixer or mother. The sad truth is that a “momma bear” or fixer type person will inevitably attract the broken, the distressed, the helpless and the problematic. Often, they know they need to improve themselves on some level, but would rather be with someone who makes them feel good as they are instead of trying to change themselves. Not sure if this is you? If you have a high tolerance for pain and feel like it makes you a better person; or if you keep enduring and trying to repair what is not in your power to fix, it is. Of course you can support your partner who is actively working on self-improvement, but you are not miracle worker. Worse still, if someone doesn’t realize they can improve, you will be like an ant trying to push an elephant up Mount Everest trying to change them. • You give too much of yourself. Toxic people are attracted to persons who don’t say no; they take and take and take. It could be your money, your time, your body or your heart. They love it when you are the kind of person who would drop everything to solve their problems, you must answer their texts even if you are busy at work and you are their personal taxi service. They can often be needy and suck the life out of you and being the giver that you are, it feels normal until you realize they own you and you become resentful. • You have an idealistic view of people. It’s

nice to be optimistic but you must trust your radar that tells you when something is off. Sometimes others see the reality of your relationship but you just make excuses: she swears she will change, he is just going through a phase, she was hurt as a child, he can’t help himself and more and more. When you realize that something is wrong, follow your instinct and deal with it. Recognize that while there are many truly wonderful people in this world, there are some who are users and abusive and predators and you can help them from a distance: just say goodbye and pray for them – from far away. Even if you recognize yourself in this list, don’t blame yourself for others’ shortcomings: Your heart was in the right place. Your generous personality could really add a lot of positive to a relationship with the right person. You’re meant to be loved, treasured, and treated with care and respect. Keep being your wonderful self, but in all of your giving and your positive view of others, practice setting boundaries and know when to walk away. 9

Getting the NBA’s call NBA Elite Camp (in October), we knew it was not acceptable to bring so many persons from different countries here and not give Virgin Islanders a chance to compete on that level,” he explained. “Now we truly see the purpose of why Digicel gives back so much to the community, because as we continue to give, our community gets so much more out of it. These young ladies promised from the first time I met them, that they were going to make it to the top two that were going to New York and as they promised, they delivered.” Hull noted that when players from nine Caribbean countries came in, the girls were great ambassadors and hosts. “We are absolutely proud of these two young ladies and what they have accomplished and we don’t see this as anything Digicel takes bragging rights for, because we didn’t create and we are not the reason why it’s happening,” he noted. “We are just the company that’s being used at this time to unearth and really go through the Virgin Islands and find all of this talent and that’s the true meaning of being extra ordinary.” Digicel General Manager Kevin Gordon said Pickering and Fahie have a unique opportunity that many basketball players crave. “To have been selected to such a prestigious camp by the NBA shows that they have extraordinary talent,” Gordon said. “We are delighted that they have this opportunity which can open even more doors for them. We congratulate Mahkayla Pickering and Shauliqua Fahie and encourage them to embrace the opportunity with the same vigor they brought to the Digicel NBA Jumpstart program and the Elite Camp.”

When they advanced to New York for an authentic NBA experience in December from the 2016 Digicel Elite Camp held here in October, Mahkayla Pickering and Shauliqua Fahie enjoyed the experience and went back to being themselves. Last month however, they received correspondence directly from the NBA, inviting them to its third annual Basketball Without Borders (BWB) global camp in New Orleans, Feb 17-19, much to their surprise. Pickering and Fahie, both 16, are among 67 boys and girls from 32 countries attending the camp at the New Orleans Pelicans’ practice facility, as part of the NBA 2017 All Stars activities. “I didn’t expect this,” Pickering said, adding that she thinks her talent stood out. “I’m looking forward to being seen so I can get scholarship and also looking forward to seeing the competition out there and what I’m really up against and see how hard others are working even though I’m working hard.” “I didn’t expect anybody from away selecting me from the Virgin Islands,” Fahie said. The sequence of events leading up to Pickering and Fahie getting the nod almost didn’t happen, according to Digicel Marketing Manager Kareem Hull, as they’d considered not holding the BVI leg of the Digicel NBA Jumpstart Program in September. “When the group offered for us to hold the Limin’Times Entertainment Gude
