Help Carriacou 2024

Published on 05/07/2024
Marina Fort Louis is proud to announce its partnership with the "Help Carriacou 2024" initiative, a grassroots humanitarian effort spearheaded by dedicated boaters aimed at supporting the communities affected by Hurricane Beryl.
This devastating Category 4 storm has left the islands of Carriacou and Petite Martinique in Grenada with unimaginable destruction, affecting nearly every aspect of life.

Hurricane Beryl has caused near-total devastation on Carriacou and Petite Martinique, with 98 percent of buildings damaged or destroyed. Key infrastructure, including the Princess Royal Hospital, the main airport, and marinas, has been severely affected. The electrical grid and communication systems are down, leaving the islands in a critical state. The natural environment has also been heavily impacted, with widespread destruction of vegetation and mangroves.

Grenada’s Prime Minister, Dickon Mitchell, has described the situation as “total destruction,” emphasizing the need for comprehensive rebuilding efforts.

Aid and Relief Convoy of Boaters

In response to this crisis, a group of dedicated boaters, coordinated by Captain Christophe Cren and his vessel SV “Charly’s”, as well as Captain Sébastien Boissiere and his vessel SV “Tour du monde marrant” have organized an aid and relief convoy to provide essential supplies and support to the affected areas.
