A DAY’S PAY TO SAVE by oceans.eleven in association with Y.CO helping superyacht professionals to support Butterfly Trust in Vanuatu.
On 13 March 2015, Cyclone Pam hit Vanuatu, the archipelago in the South Pacific with devastating consequences.
You may have already seen the inspirational footage of yacht DRAGONFLY’s aid mission in Vanuatu. The islands remain in a state of disaster, with hundreds of people unable to access fresh water, food and basic medical supplies.
The superyacht industry can help. A DAY’S PAY TO SAVE is the new initiative by the Captain’s committee oceans.eleven in association with Y.CO. It’s simple: superyacht crew and professionals donate up to one day’s pay to Butterfly Trust.
Butterfly Trust works to improve access to education and health services, including food security and agriculture, water and sanitation, shelter, education, health, and infrastructure, in rural Vanuatu.
This fundraising effort is not limited to the superyacht industry and all donations will be appreciated.
The oceans.eleven initiative brings together a group of ten captains from a wide range of yachts, and one Rear Admiral, who together form a committee to directly address the operational needs of captains and crew.
Among the captains of oceans.eleven, there are those with first hand experience and knowledge of the devastating effects of Cyclone Pam in Vanuatu. Through A DAY'S PAY TO SAVE, the oceans.eleven captains hope to encourage and give the superyacht industry the opportunity to give back to a very worthwhile cause.
