YachtAid Global hits the seas with aid

ADVERTISEMENT

YachtAid Global is hosting a networking event Jan. 30 in Ft. Lauderdale to help promote its mission of using traveling yachts to disburse much-needed supplies to remote villages and communities near where yachts cruise.

 

YAG will now accept donations at any time of medical supplies such as bandages, splints, gauzes, etc.; school supplies such as paper, pencils, rulers, books of any kind; clothing; and kitchen supplies and tools. Drop donations off anytime at RoboVault, 3340 S.E. 6th Ave., Ft. Lauderdale, 33316.

 

When a need has been identified and a yacht secured, supplies can quickly be loaded and sent.

 

“This is not a collection effort for a particular yacht, but rather a long-term strategic alliance to allow YAG to move quickly during times of natural disaster or when we are approached by yachts that want to join our efforts, we have supplies ready to go for them,” said Dhardra Blake who handles events for YAG.

 

YAG was started by Capt. Mark Drewelow to help some of the less-fortunate communities he encountered during his time driving yachts. He is now based in San Diego and is CEO of C2C Inc. in San Diego and San Francisco.


The networking event will be from 6-8 p.m. at RoboVault and will feature food by Yacht Chandlers and a demonstration at 7 p.m. of how the robotic storage facility works.

 

RSVPs are requested so YAG can better prepare.
