Successful Discharge in Jacmel

It was great to hear that our boat and crew arrived safely in Jacmel, Haiti yesterday late morning. They had an uneventful docking at the main cargo dock there. After some interesting dockside negotiations between various organizations, some whom our load of cargo had been designated for and others to whom it was not, the cargo load was discharged and handed over to those to whom we had been commissioned to give it. The off-loading process itself only took a few hours with the help of our awesome crew and by afternoon yesterday the boat, minus the few crew members who disembarked in Haiti for further relief work, set sail again for Jamaica. We have already made preparation for them to dock in Jamaica for a couple of days to rest and reprovision, as well as to pick up a fresh new crew member, before returning to Miami, via the Florida Keys. We are expecting them to arrive in Jamaica by first light tomorrow morning. I can't wait to speak with them once they get there.
Thank you all for your continued support and well wishes during this time. If any of your would like to be involved by supporting financially or in any other way in preparation for our next trip to Haiti, please comment on the blog or email me at
