SLOJO and Vanuatu
On June 8, 2011 YAG made contact with Keleva Yachting Service Vanuatu
Sam and Jess are the owners of that yacht agency. They worked tirelessly to not only support Slojo during their visit to Vanuatu, but they also engaged YachtAid Global and were successful at importing all the humanitarian aid of Australia origination duty and tax free.
This was a challenge to do and took weeks of work and diplomatic pressure on the officials.
Thank you Sam and Jess for making it all happen. More info to follow.
Funds for the YAG Aid were provided by the kind folks at The Superyacht Group. Esther Barney, Editor of The Crew Report, took the lead and allocated funds raised during the YAG Gold Challenge, and the impromptu fund raiser at the ASF dinner in Fort Lauderdale. Thank you Esther, Martin and the entire SG team and all who donated funds at the two events.
