Bahamas Chatter: “Cruisers Giving Back” plus 1 more
Cruisers Giving Back
Posted: 03 Feb 2016 08:33 AM PST
After the devastation that Hurricane Joaquin brought to the southeastern islands in the Bahamas, it is encouraging to see so many cruising yachts coming to help. Not only are they bringing lots of supplies, mainly for the schools, but they are also putting in their sweat equity as well. At Salt Pond, cruisers anchored in Thompson Bay have been helping out with putting on new roofs at the Midway Inn, the Oasis Bahamas Youth Network facility, the Farmers Market, and others. Landed locals have helped organize the work parties with tools and equipment, plus transportation and meals.
Good on ya, Mates! Keep it up.
We know that there are many other examples of CRUISERS GIVING BACK, and we’d like to hear about them from you. It is inspiring to us all to know how people are stepping up to help people in need.
