OCC members Sarah and Bryn Smith were there to assist Ocean Cruising Club
Storage and help moving the aid was provided by PowerBoats. Bryn and Sarah Smith were there to help. Jesse James marked up boxes of aid for Dominica as they came in to be stowed.

FOX FIRE arrived safely in Portsmouth, Dominica last night, carrying relief supplies donated by the Trinidadian cruising and local communities.

Thank you to Patrick Thompson for making that voyage.
