One of crew members during the “Voiles de St Barth” this year was in a very nasty car accident once back in his Island of Barbados. This was two months ago and he is still sitting in a hospital with both legs broken just below the hip, awaiting an eventual surgery which will hopefully give him back the use of his legs.
Che (his name) is the 3rd guy from the left on this picture taken in happier times, Che is 19 years old and gives all his free time to the local sailing school in Barbados for teaching young Islanders to sail. As you well know medical bills are endless, so his crew from the Saint Barth regatta decided to start a GoFundMe page. If you feel like helping a young generous sailor, here is the link. – Anarchist Frederic.
