The West Indies Yacht Club, following a long tradition of providing assistance of any kind to people in need, powered a special charity department to actively help the development of local communities scattered all over the Caribbean islands, through teaching navigation and maritime skills to disadvantaged youth.

With this program, they would learn a trade in the maritime industry, become experienced sailors and brought back home new opportunities for their own families and communities.

Learning a trade in the maritime industry is not only a way to earn a better living and improve competences, but enphase to the students the absolute necessity to protect the seas as an endangered environment. Sustainable development must also convert to maritime activities and preserving sealife as well coral reefs is part of our mission.

To learn more or support our charity, you could contact the Secretary at secretary@wiyc.club

Your help is much needed !

Donations are available to Tax Relief.
