Producers of the Newport Charter Yacht Show are pleased to announce that “YachtAid Global” – yachting’s humanitarian charity – has been chosen as the non-profit partner for the second consecutive year. A favorite event among brokers, the charter show will take place June 17 – 20th in Newport, Rhode Island at the Newport Yachting Center.
YachtAid Global orchestrates the delivery of humanitarian, development and conservation aid to coastal communities worldwide. The organization was founded in 2006 and is a registered non-profit providing tax benefits to donors. YachtAid Global utilizes a network of volunteers who coordinate logistics with patrons who donate supplies and the yachts that can make deliveries to those in need.
YachtAid Global delivers to schools, medical clinics, cultural centers and other organizations in remote coastal locations which other aid organizations cannot reach. YachtAid Global works with an impressive roster of yachts to provide the owners and crew an outlet to give back in a unique way that does not change the course of their cruise.
Since 2006, YachtAid Global has made over 50 deliveries of aid, totaling in excess of $300,000. Since last year’s show, YachtAid Global has made further deliveries to Fiji, Galapagos Islands, a second delivery to Robinson Crusoe Island, Jamaica, plus two deliveries to Isles Secas off the coast of Panama. YAG has discovered that many Charter guests are up for a unique adventure on their charter, and this is one way to experience just that! http://yachtaidglobal.org/wp/
To help support the efforts of YachtAid Global, the Newport Charter Show will sponsor YAG’s exhibit space in the Show.
