Like many of you, SAIL magazine and the AIM Marine Group have been watching the destruction in The Bahamas from Hurricane Dorian with heavy hearts. Seeing so much suffering in a place where so many of us have made memories with our families and friends has spurred us into action.

After lengthy conversations with first responders, the Coast Guard and other humanitarian relief organizations, we have decided to make a donation to the Hope 4 Hope Town GoFundMe campaign, and we encourage others to do so as well.

Please note, there are many GoFundMe campaigns using the same name. However, the link below is the one we vetted and have chosen to support. Contrary to what the name implies, proceeds from this organization will reach not just Hope Town but will be used throughout the Abaco Islands.

We hope you will join us in standing with The Bahamas and supporting the recovery effort. The Bahamas have given so much to the boating community, now is the time to give back.

We are also supporting the Bahamas Red Cross: https://bahamasredcross.org and http://thirdwavevolunteers.com
