Sail Loot Podcast 054: Sail Me Om, Part 2

By on September 15, 2017

Hurricane Irma is gone, but the devastation that she left behind will leave scars for a lifetime.

Jon and Tory are doing amazing work trying to heal as many of those scars as possible as quickly as possible. I can’t think of two better people to have organized

The islands get forgotten sometimes, especially by mainstream media and the federal governments that are supposed to watch over them.

In a way, I get it. Many have never had the opportunity to experience the beauty of St. Maarten, the Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico, the Turks and Caicos, or Cuba. They are islands in the middle of the Caribbean that have dealt with hurricane seasons since the beginning of time as we know it.

But I’m a sailor now – I can say that because I’ve run aground. I understand that the story of the destruction of biblical proportions that Irma left in the islands needs to be told. Who better to tell it and help coordinate recovery efforts than two people who founded The Tiziano Project which “provides community members in conflict, post-conflict, and underreported regions with the equipment, training, and affiliations necessary to report their stories and improve their lives.”

Jon and Tory are probably still running their businesses all at the same time. Awe-Some!

About Teddy

I am a 37 year old that just wants to find a way to make a remote income, gather some Sail Loot and cruise the world! I have been sailing for a couple of years now, but mostly on 10 day trips as vacationing crew. I just recently took sailing to the next level by completing my Basic Keelboat, Basic Cruising, and Bareboat Cruising Certifications! I am also Vice President of a Medical Consulting Company, have a Mechanical Engineering degree from Georgia Tech, and have taken several Coding, Computing, and Online Business courses. It's time to share what I have learned!
