The Story

Horizon Yacht Charters in the BVI suffered severe damage during the passage of Hurricane Irma, the most violent hurricane on record.  While we lost many of our yachts, nearly all of our staff have been left with very little in the way of shelter and belongings.  We would dearly love to help our staff, many of whom have worked with us since Horizon began in the late 90's, and who we regard as part of our family.  We would ask you to kindly consider a donation to our staff fund, no matter how small, so that we may help them rebuild their homes and lives.  Horizon BVI is committed to resurrecting our fleet so that we can continue to provide income to the great team that we are lucky to have!  We know that your BVI sailing playground will be up and running soon, as the BVI people have an indomitable spirit ... and we ask that you keep the BVI in your thoughts and prayers as we recover to help you have the best vacations on the water possible!  With many thanks and much love from our family to yours.  Sylvia and Andrew, Directors of HYC BVI

We would like to say a huge THANK YOU to everyone who donated to Horizon Yacht Charters BVI Staff Fund.  We managed to buy all staff generators for which they are very grateful, as most of the island is still without power, and will still take months to be installed in some areas.  We also gave them cheques so they could purchase what they needed to help them make life more comfortable.  They are all over the moon with the generosity from everyone who has helped them.

The islands are recovering well, and improvements are happening daily.  We are very lucky to have such a wonderful, caring community here.  Horizon BVI has brand new boats on the dock, and with some being repaired already, we are looking forward to welcoming our charter guests back very soon!  We hope that you will come and visit us in the future so we can personally thank you for your kindness!

From our Horizon family to yours

THANK YOU and we wish you a wonderful Holiday Season!

Anil and Wilson say a big Thank You to everyone who has kindly donated to their staff fund!  We have been able to buy our team generators (as the power will take months to restore in some areas) and this has made their lives so much easier.  They each got a cheque for $1000 last week too and were able to go shopping on island for necessities, as the stores are full of "hurricane" supplies.  Everyone at Horizon is extremely appreciative of your support.  Thank you!

Thank you so much everyone!  We are overwhelmed with your generosity!  We hope to buy generators, fans and tarps with these funds for our staff.  In the meantime, we thought you might like a photo of our youngest (and definitely cutest) team member!
