The show goes on: USVI charter show in St. Thomas set

ADVERTISEMENT

Hurricanes Irma and Maria battered but didn’t dampen the spirits or resilience of the crewed charter yacht community in St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands. In the wake of Maria’s passing on Sept. 20, Oriel Blake, executive director of the Virgin Islands Professional Charter Association, confirmed that the show will take place at its previously set dates of Nov. 11-14. The show will take place at IGY’s Yacht Haven Grande Marina.

“VIPCA is in the beginning stages of initiating a relief fund specific to the marine industry, to clear vessels off the shore and get new mooring buoys ready for the season ahead,” Blake said. “The U.S.V.I. Charter Yacht Show will be a great way of telling the world that the VI is ready for marine charter tourism.”

Registration is still open. For more information, contact Blake at info@vipca.org or visit: www.vipca.org/2017-usvi-charter-yacht-show
