Further differentiating the Newport Charter Show, its organizer, the Newport Harbor Corporation, has named a charitable partner, in the form of YachtAid Global. YachtAid Global's founder, Capt. Mark Drewelow, will meet with charter-yacht captains the day before the show and speak at the welcome reception the first day of the show. The goal is to educate yacht crews, yacht owners, and others alike about how YachtAid Global delivers much-needed aid to communities in need worldwide with the assistance of yachts. Over nearly six years, YachtAid Global has worked with 38 yachts and 385 crewmembers to deliver everything from books to medical supplies to nearly 2,000 children in 13 countries, and some yacht crews and yacht owners have even worked to raise funds for the organization itself. (You may recall the Slojo YAG Challenge from 2010, in which the motoryacht Slojo raised thousands for YachtAid Global.) In addition, YachtAid Global is establishing a Founding Members Board, to help it continue growing and raising money.
