As the world has seen in recent days, the beautiful islands of the Caribbean have been ravaged by Hurricane Irma. Our thoughts go out to the people of these beautiful islands as they try to take their next steps in assessing the damage and rebuilding their homes and lives. The British Virgin Islands and St Martin have sustained extensive damage but we were very fortunate to not have any customers in these locations at the time of the hurricane. Cabin charters and yacht charters in BVI and St Martin are not available until further notice.
If you have been touched by the plight of the people of the Caribbean and now Florida in this natural disaster, then you can offer your support by a donation. Global Medic, is a Canadian operated registered Canadian charity, and their mandate is to save lives by providing short-term, rapid response in the wake of disasters and crisis, both at home and abroad. GlobalMedic was founded by paramedics and is often the first team, and many times the only one, to get critical interventions to people in life-threatening situations following a disaster.

As we see the world slowly starting to move to the new normal post COVID-19 pandemic, we are excited that the gates to international travel are also beginning to open.
Due to the worldwide pandemic, it's been far too long since we met people face to face to chat about sailing in Greece, Croatia, French Polynesia and all our other wonderful sailing destinations.
