Our 97-foot boat has sailed 7,000 nautical miles and conducted 8 humanitarian aid and disaster relief operations in the Caribbean in over 3 years, supporting dozens of other yachts in the region with volunteers and supplies.
Thunderbird 5 has been our flagship and focal point in the Caribbean, now International Rescue Group plans to re-fit the ship for a new mission to set up operations in Asia, based in the Philippines.
Looking for volunteers to help re-fit our yacht, if you'd like some experience in a marine yard on hull steel, wooden rig, electronics and painting etc., come and join us! There are comfortable cabins available, the weather's great (not too hot!) and we have lots of work to do here in Florida before sailing.
Either Rio Dulce, Guatemala, Mexico or Panama. We have excellent quotes from all three locations, will make a booking by 15th December.
Please note that this can be delayed for various reasons, this is the best stab at timing. Volunteers who have hard stops may not find this project suitable.
Volunteers who join and support work in December gain priority for a cabin to the South China Seas if they wish to sail. For the voyage volunteer crews share the cost of the voyage at $20 per day which includes all food, consumables etc.
Those volunteers who join the work on the vessel in Florida and Central America have a cabin of their own and food during the project.
