BEHIND THE LABEL: The June 2006 "Water" Edition of Lucire Magazine features my April trip with my sustainable style pieces during the Antigua Classic Yacht Regatta shot by fine art yacht photographer extraordinaire, Cory Silken. I may not look really ill, but I totally got sick on Sea Diamond, which was the one I'm sitting on and looking over my shoulder. Probably took some heavy duty cleaning material to get that stuff cleaned up is all I have to say. I'm telling you. NEVER, EVER under any circumstances, even if you are soooo tired, go downstairs to take a nap and then re-emerge when the boat is still moving!

As a side note about Antigua, the history of microclimate change there is a bit alarming. It used to have a hospitable West Indian climate with short periods of rain. However, when the intensitve sugar farming came in, it began stripping the already nutrient poor soils of its lifeblood. Unfortunately today there are no sugar cane farms left and the island is pretty much devoid of its original treecover. The climate, as a result, has changed because of the anthropogenic pressures and very little rain now makes it to the island community, making it oppressively HOT! And yes, I wore and reapplied my SPF 45 all day long, and still broke out from the sun. YIKES!
