Who/what/why Sail Aid UK?
Sail Aid UK was formed on September 8th 2017 as a fundraising platform for uniting the UK sailing industry, pro and amateur sailors, racers and cruisers, to help the victims of the 2017 hurricanes across so much of the Caribbean.
Simon Boulding, Philippe Falle, Liz Lotz, Tara Smyth, Peta Stuart-Hunt and Katie Walker are the Founders and Trustees of Sail Aid UK, co-ordinating the PR, marketing, logistics, legal and administrative, international contribution, general support and volunteer requirements.
Our mission is to help those Islands and their communities that were so tragically affected by the hurricanes to rebuild, restore and regenerate their communities, be it through educational, health and welfare or building projects.
During September 2017, many of the Caribbean islands that we know and love were virtually wiped out when three of the largest-ever and most powerful hurricanes - Irma, Jose and Maria - tore through them within the space of three weeks causing catastrophic damage in Barbuda, Saint Barthélemy, Sint Maarten, Anguilla, the Virgin Islands, Dominica and Puerto Rico.
