We have come up with a relief plan. IT IS FOR OUR CAPTAIN, DARREL HEARNE, TO MAKE SUPPLY RUNS BACK AND FORTH FROM ST. CROIX to the BVI. So far, there are a total of 4 boats putting in combined efforts!!
We are looking for additional money for supplies, to fill our boats and to help the folks in need in Tortola and the surrounding islands.
Thankfully, our boat, captain, and chef/mate made it safely by weathering the storm in St Croix. I cannot say the same for all of their loved ones, as they are still not able to contact them, just like most others down there. (Update 9/9/17-contact made, family still trapped in house, but ok, with running generator.
Update 9/12/17, family safe)
Sea Boss and crew are going to use the boat to ferry as many supplies as possible to The BVI, from St Croix. We have offered the boat to help those in need.
So far, Irma has rendered all islands in its path catastrophically destroyed.
There is little to no available communication, no power, no water, and most structures are severely damaged or destroyed.
We have many friends and the boat that are usually in and around Tortola.
We are coordinating relief and working with Three sheets sailing, who are gathering their own supplies via an active PO box in St. Croix. They are accepting goods via amazon and other suppliers by shipment, so we can ferry them in with their organized help. (More info on our Facebook page and theirs.) They will be acquiring goods and we will be ferrying as many of these non perishable foods, water, flashlights, batteries, medical supplies, generators, shelter, diapers, baby formula, toiletries, clothes, bedding, cots, etc. as possible over the coming days.

Thank you all,
Ali Hakim, Captain Darrel Hearne, and the entire Sea Boss crew.
