YAG seeks boats heading to Caribbean

Oct 17, 2017 by Lucy Chabot Reed

In the days after two massive hurricanes swept across the Caribbean, YachtAid Global created the Superyacht Aid Coalition to coordinate donations with those places and people in need.

Since then, YachtAid Global has amassed relief aid for various points around the Caribbean and seeks vessels heading in that direction to help carry it all. YAG handles all the logistics of loading and arranging for receipt on the island.

To join the Bahamas-Caribbean relief flotilla, visit yachtaidglobal.org and click on “transport aid”.
