In the past month, hurricanes Irma and Maria devastated the beloved Caribbean islands of St. Martin, the British Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico. As leaders in the yacht charter industry, our goal is to unite sailors everywhere to help these destinations recover as quickly as possible. Donations will help our team members directly affected by the recent Caribbean hurricanes, many of whom have suffered significant losses.
Tourism is the beating heart of the Caribbean, and by providing our staff in these local destinations with much-needed supplies for them and their families, we can ensure their health and safety, support the yachting industry, and ultimately welcome back our dedicated charter guests that are such an integral part of each island’s economic well-being.
Less than one month following Irma, the local communities in the affected areas have exhibited great resiliency and determination, so much so that an impressive number of small businesses have already begun announcing re-open dates. Our local Moorings and Sunsail base staff are no exception, working diligently to care for their families while demonstrating unwavering commitment to the rebirth of their communities and workplaces.
100% of all contributions will be allocated for direct shipments to our bases in St. Martin, the British Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico, delivering basic living and building materials essential to keep our staff and their families safe and well cared for. In return they are in the process of making a rapid comeback of unprecedented proportions.
Join us as we support this massive revival and rebuilding effort. Together we will confidently invite yacht charter guests back for world-class sailing and restore the thriving charter industry that these islands so depend on.
