Crew Eye: With Dorothea III in Costa Rica


The crew on M/Y Dorothea III, a 148-foot Cheoy Lee, is doing good again. The yacht is underway and recently made a drop to deliver school supplies, shoes, and toys to an indigenous community in Punta Burica, Costa Rica, before the rainy season makes roads impassable. The crew raised money and collected the supplies they plan to give out during the yacht’s two year trip, wrote Chief Stew Bri McCurdy in an email to The Triton
