Eco-Mer’s 2018 Yachts du Coeur events :
2018-11-26 Departing Palma , ‘Slipstream’ collected charitable donations to help the hurricane relief effort for Barbuda. Eta Barbuda 14th dec 2018
Following up on last year’s philanthropic effort, the crew of M/Y Slipstream is once again transporting charitable donations from Palma to Barbuda, one of a number of Caribbean islands that is still trying to recover from last year’s devastating hurricane. With a list of essentials provided by ECOMER, Slipstream collected from yacht crew and companies in Palma before its departure at the end of November.
“We always planned to follow up on what we did last year rather than make it just a one-off mission,” explains Captain Steve Osborne, rotational captain on M/Y Slipstream. “Transporting across materials to help in the rebuilding process is an easy and simple gesture. I do hope more yachts that go across to the Caribbean – or anywhere else in the world that could do with assistance to help improve their situation – will get involved. We would never take any credit for what we are doing, it’s just logical and fairly easy to do – any sort of charitable work is.”
