April’s MainSail features British entrepreneur Sir Richard Branson filmed at his 76-acre paradise in the British Virgin Islands.

Presenter Shirley Robertson spends the day with Branson racing on the 32-metre catamaran Necker Bell, competing in the region’s annual regatta where crews combine competition in perfect sailing conditions with great aprés sail. But popularity can come at a price. MainSail finds out how Branson is working hard to ensure visitors see an area that has been carefully maintained and protected to ensure sport, leisure and nature can co-exist.
