Storm hits Baja

Hurricane Odile hit the Baja Peninsula in Mexico on Sept. 14, one of the strongest hurricanes on record to make landfall in the area. The category 3 hurricane affected electricity, Internet and cell phone services, and the marina went through sporadic service with periods of limited communications, according to Darren Carey, general marina manager of IGY Marina Cabo San Lucas. None of the eight megayachts in the marina were seriously damaged.

Capt. Mark Drewelow of YachtAid Global (YAG) continues to work with megayachts in transporting supplies to the area.

“Thirty-six hours after the hurricane cleared out of La Paz, we had S/Y M5 moving into the area as first responders,” Drewelow said on the group’s social media. “In addition to having $5,000 of aid aboard that put ashore, over six days they pumped thousands of gallons of drinking water ashore into trucks that made deliveries to local hospitals. They did some truly meaningful work.”

M/Y Seven Js transported 1,000 water filtration buckets for Waves For Water in Los Cabos.

Both the Atlantic and Eastern Pacific hurricane seasons end on Nov. 30.
