Hurricane Irma Put Newhards Aground
Hurricane Irma threw ‘Flying Circus’ ashore on the island of St. Thomas in the US Virgin Islands. Cap’t Neil & his son Enzo have not only lost their home but all of their belongings. Neil Newhard is a well-known Caribbean resident as well as a three-time Rolex Regatta Champion. Enzo is currently a Sophomore at the University of Miami where he is triple majoring in Marine Biology, Biology, and Environmental Science and is an active racer on the UM Sailing Team.
Enzo’s friends and fellow sailors have started this drive to help him and his father rebuild their lives. While we cannot bring back their Columbia 50, we can help replace their home. Every gift is truly appreciated. Enzo is currently down on the island fending for himself in a temporary shelter.
Hey everyone! An update on enzo. He survived the first storm and saved his bikes. He has been sleeping outside as it is too hot in the house he was staying. However, he wasn't able to evacuate in time for Maria. Everyone please say a prayer as he battles the next storm. Will let everyone know how he is after the storm. And thanks to all who have helped so far. He needs us more than ever now after battling two category 5 hurricanes.
