CAUSE FOR WATER: The M/Y Dorothea III crew is hoping to raise money to purchase and provide 100 clean water filtration systems or more to South Pacific island communities in need. According to Capt. John Crupi, second from right, filters are $50 and provide up to one million gallons of clean, filtered water. Pictured are the crew while anchored in Bora Bora, French Polynesia. Front row, Jamey Harrison, Catharine Nolan, Capt. John Crupi and Jenifer Mosley and back row, Josh Heather, Aaron Drake, Mike Torres, Dwayne Sinclair. They have received 23 donations so far, which have the potential to affect 10,000 people. To help make that number grow, see detail at forwater.co. PHOTO/COURTESY CAPT. JOHN CRUPI
