Cabo Disaster Relief

On September 14th, Hurricane Odile devastated Cabo San Lucas. Our Co-Founder’s husband was there since he often works out of Cabo as captain of a fishing yacht. The devastation is far and wide and Cabo needs our help.  If you have ever visited the beautiful beaches, resorts or spent time on open water in Cabo, please consider a donation of much needed supplies and staple food items.

YachtAid Global, a San Diego organization, is dedicated to delivering humanitarian aid onboard yachts to coastal communities worldwide. They have partnered with Marine Group Boat Works to help the people of Baja in this time of need.  If you would like to send aid, the donation collection point and needed items are below.
