Someone's been pinching our nuts

Never before has a set of nuts been so keenly watched, so eagerly anticipated and so jealously guarded. BUT - Blimey, some tealeaf's been half-inching 'em and the staff have had enough!

Reef-sponsored swimmers bring home the bacon

The St Lucia national swim team placed second at the OECS (Organisation of Eastern Caribbean States) swimming championships held in Grenada over the weekend of November 6th - 8th 2009.
In the 9 - 10 boys age group, Mark 'Mogli' Emanus and Joshua Healy (seen above sporting fabulous Reef T-shirts) showed the regional gathering that members of the Southern Flying Fish swim team are not to be trifled with. Overall, St Lucia tied with Grenada with 63 Gold medals each but fell behind in the Silver (39 to 84) and in the Bronze (40 to 59).

50m Freestyle - Mark Emanus - Gold
100m Freestyle - Mark Emanus - Silver
50m Butterfly - Mark Emanus - Silver
4 x 50m Relay - Joshua Healy - Silver
4 x 50m Relay - Mark Emanus - Silver

Sir Richard Branson: New teaching technique rivals IKO methods

Always the innovator, Richard Branson, chairman of the Virgin group of companies, is seen here demonstrating the latest patented Virgin Kitesurfing Instruction Method (VKIM). Sir Richard cites some of the advantages of VKIM over legacy methods which he says are "so last century".
  • Personal VKIM instructor provides instant feedback on all manoevres thereby vastly improving the learning curve for newcomers to the sport.
  • Not only warns of potential dangers ahead, but reminds the kiter of right-of-way rules at all times.
  • Instructor instantly detaches on wipeout.
