Inaugural Project Castaways' Cove, Grand Cayman
Cove in the Spectacular Tax Free Cayman Islands
by Marcus Eby
A. Derek Dale, an international airline pilot for over two decades, was
based in Honolulu, Hawaii for three years in 1980, flying to Fiji and Sydney,
Australia. He obtained residence in Vanuatu (formerly the New Hebrides
a tax free jurisdiction in the South Pacific) and quickly realized the
benefits of substantially reducing income taxes legally. As a result of
that experience the seed was planted and as time went by he met more of
his peers in the worldwide airline fraternity and recognized that there
were a significant number of international airline pilots/professionals
who would also greatly benefit from his knowledge and expertise in the
offshore arena. As a result the International Pilots Group (IPG) began
to take shape in the early summer of 1999.
It was quickly
realized through negotiations with senior politicians of several tax-free
Caribbean jurisdictions (where our group was considering investing) that
there was strength in numbers. As the numbers of IPG began to grow (at
this stage primarily via word of mouth) it became obvious that the Governmental
concessions were directly proportionate to the economy of scale and the
economic spin-off a larger group could provide. Consequently the founders
aggressively began to expound the benefits of forming a global international
ad-hoc group seeking privacy, legal tax relief and above average financial
return, combined with a world-class lifestyle. They also incorporated a
limited company as the legal entity for IPG and developed their own secure
websites to showcase their group and it’s projects. Home Page www.ipgglobal.net
and current project www.castawayscove.net
As IPG evolved
it became apparent that its operations would have to be streamlined into
a more formal structure and it was decided that the core members would
form the Executive Council (ExCo). ExCo is made up of pilots from major
international airlines from primarily high tax domiciles recently ExCo
has diversified to include many more professional organizations.
Project Castaways' Cove, Grand Cayman
Islands is just 480 miles south of Miami, with wonderful blue sky and turquoise
water, containing all the amenities of a sophisticated tax-free British
colony; the average annual temperature

minimizing humidity. Direct air service by many of the world’s major airlines
facilitates your arrival at this island paradise.

development on the quieter East End of Grand Cayman Island. Over the past
ten years no less than 22 homes in excess of $1,000,000 have been built
in the surrounding area. A sense of privacy and serenity greets their owners
and their guests as they enter the resort's gates. This all-inclusive investment
package has been specifically designed to appeal to affluent professionals
