Yachts needed to ferry supplies to St. Thomas from Florida

ADVERTISEMENT

Yacht Aid Global (YAG) seeks yachts to volunteer to move boxes of supplies to St. Thomas, USVI, from South Florida.

YAG coordinates yachts and crew for humanitarian and conservation initiatives, and this load of cargo will aid the St. Thomas Recovery Team (STRT), a coalition coordinating the long-term recovery of the islands.

The boxes are filled with kitchen kits, are 20x20x18 inches and weigh 20 pounds each. Ideally, four yachts will carry 83 boxes each. There is no deadline for the cargo to arrive in St. Thomas.

The YAG team hopes to document the humanitarian effort and seeks yachts that allow their names to be used.

For more information contact Mark Drewelow at mark@yachtaidglobal.org or Zoran Selakovic at zoran@yachtaidglobal.org. For more on STRT, visit strtvi.org.
