Event Description

The Captain joined Ryan Chalifour in Lewes, DE on November 16th to accept 56' ketch Tandemeer and commence refit and transit to IRG's new base in the Caribbean by January 2014. This is the very yacht in the final scene in "Trading Places" with Eddie Murphy, Dan Aykroyd and Jamie Lee Curtis (see clip here)!

If you're local to this area, please come and meet us, or spend a day with us on some of the below projects, or help us source supplies and equipment (which can be done online from home)! There are four en-suite cabins aboard Tandemeer, so you can stay over on the boat while working...

Volunteers who help us launch this disaster relief vessel get a free week aboard in the Caribbean (you pay your own travel and food expenses).

We have a party aboard at dock on December 8th for all volunteers!

RSVP here or send a message to info@internationalrescuegroup.org, we'd love to see you.

Hi, thanks for the comment - we can definitely use crew from Lewes, DE to the Caribbean and if possible help us make the boat seaworthy in the Yard!
