St.Vincent and the Grenadines

Mention a Caribbean cruise and most people assume you’re talking about St. Martin / St. Barths or perhaps the Virgin Islands. People usually do not think of the Southern Caribbean which includes St. Vincent and the Grenadines. However, that is starting to change. “The Caribbean is the most beautiful place in the world” said one of the guests cruising aboard the M/Y WilPower (Click for password) , “and the islands of the Grenadines are so spectacular that there is no way to describe this with photos or words – you literally have to see it to believe it!” Couple this beauty with the economics of $2.60 EC to $1.00 US and fuel that in some places costs less than $1 per gallon and you have the makings of a great yachting destination.

Cruising with Gondolas

There are many ways to arrive in Venice but perhaps the very finest way is to do so in your own yacht.  Fortunately in recent years several companies have set up shop offering self-drive motor yachts, which enable sailors to undertake such an adventure.  We chose to use Connoisseur a British based company using British built boats that come with easy to read instructions all in English.  The company has bases throughout Europe and in each employ young English speaking staff full of enthusiasm for yachting vacations. I will never understand why the Venetians built their city on islands inside a swamp in the first place but within minutes of our arriving there, I was awfully glad they had.  The city was, according to legend, founded in 422 by Roman refugees fleeing from the Goths who invaded and ravaged northern-eastern Italy and was probably built as a result of the in...

One of Microsoft's key focuses in progressing through their upcoming software releases will be their Trustworthy Computing initiative.

Combine Precise Search Results with Sophisticated Navigation

The key issue of the information society is getting the right information in the right context to the right person at the right time.This statement is true if you're an executive going over the last balance, an analyst gathering the current parameters of the stock market, an officer collecting the facts for a report, a student looking for the latest research results, or simply a traveler interested in some flight information. The statement is also true if you're searching the Web, intranet, Document Management system, Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system, or Product Data Management (PDM) system. We have to search for information not because it's absent, but because we're drowning in too much of it, and the amounts are continuously growing. The information available doubles every two to three years with decreasing intervals. We're used to queries with thousands ... (more)
