San Juan, Puerto Rico @operationenzo Our day began with delicious locally harvested and roasted coffee and a pit stop in Salinas, Puerto Rico for some amazing BBQ Pinchos at a popular spot only known and craved by locals.
.
.
However this day was different—different than crossing any ocean aboard any vessel. More touching than any sea’s phosphorescence and more humbling to see that, even after all the hurricane’s destruction, people and families of Puerto Rico are mending together with so much love.
.
.
Team #operationenzo and some close local friends had the opportunity to travel two hours deep into the remote hills of Adjuntas, Puerto Rico, where more than 50 days after the last hurricane struck, people still had yet to see or receive any help. Where the only creek locals received their drinking water from, for decades, was contaminated with leptospirosis. .
.
We were fortunate to have delivered over 250 hot meals, water filter kits, and toys (all sponsored by the owner of S/V Enzo) that brought smiles to dozens of families whose stories we had a chance to hear. .
.
One of the families that we had the opportunity to meet and provide food & water filtration kits for had just lost a child a week prior from the only source of drinking water they had, something that could have been easily prevented. 😢
.
.
It's been over 50 days, 50 long days since the last category 5 hurricane struck. The media came, the media went. The destruction is still here, the destruction is still present.
Over 80% of Puerto Rico is still without power, with restoration estimates 6 to 12 months out.
Not even a single stop light works in all of Puerto Rico. The only power any location has is provided by gas or diesel powered generators.
.
.
Even with the all gratification our team felt helping people and bringing smiles, despite our efforts, there is still so much that needs to be done. However with our photos and information, it's the key awareness* we are bringing to team #operationenzo's tribe & community that we believe will bring more help and spread the word that the destruction is still present.

🇵🇷🇵🇷🌴🌴Our crossing was a success as S/V Enzo carried us safe across the Atlantic to our first destination of San Juan, Puerto Rico where we are picking up S/V Enzo's owner and receiving the final itinerary from #yachtaidglobal on which islands we are to deliver the hurricane relief supply and potential disaster relief volunteer labor work! 😎
.
.
With the hurricane relief supply and #operationenzo team ready to go aboard S/V Enzo, we departed Newport, Rhode Island last Friday (11/4) to catch the active north-eastern winds and we got just what we bargained for with 30 to 40knot winds and 10-15' waves, cruising S/V Enzo over 11-12knots for the first 72 hours with both our main and jib reefed! .
.
The weather then calmed way down with a small high pressure system just north of Bermuda, leaving us with little to no cruising winds, from where we cruised under power for roughly 48 hours heading south-east to pick up a better wind angle with the trade winds that the forecast showed would fill in. By midweek our patience finally paid off with our anticipation for the trade winds, bringing us a couple days of nice smooth sailing 😎
The final stretch was filled with many crazy squalls that we had fun challenges dodging and battling through!
.
.
The first leg of this journey was rewarding, from watching & experiencing the north Atlantics cold ocean waves and winds roar, beautiful sunsets lighting up the whole horizon to the west, to then be eagerly waiting for each moon rise from the east as the moon deceivingly looked to be on fire creeping up from the edge of the horizon, beautiful stars & phosphorescence at night and each day beginning with an eye opening sunrise. We are glad to have finally arrived in the warm Caribbean and excited for the next leg to Dominica & St John to deliver more hurricane relief supply 😎🌴

-Thank you #operationenzo tribe! ❤️

Off we go!

Newport, Rhode Island! It's been real! Team @operationenzo has had an incredible week here organizing & loading the hurricane relief supply aboard S/V Enzo! We couldn't have done it without everyone's love, support and contributions! We are now off to Puerto Rico with one potential stop in Bermuda depending on weather. After Puerto Rico we will then be off to the BVI's, Antigua and Dominica to cover this amazing effort! .
.
This means no cell reception or internet for 8 to 12 days to keep you posted! 😱But with S/V Enzo's AIS transceiver, you can track us along our journey as we cross south over the Atlantic! AIS#: 303161000 (Google "AIS tracker")
Can't wait to bring you up to date with all the photos and videos we will be capturing along the way!
.
.
We also still have an active campaign, please spread the word so we can bring more awareness! (Link can be found on our Facebook)

Thursday aboard @operationenzo was an incredible day! It started off with receiving a final shipment from REI with tons of solar panels and bug nets that was covered by S/V Enzo's owner under the proceeds matching! .
.

While the crew was busy inspecting the rigging up top of the S/V Enzo's mast, we had an awesome surprise from a group of incredible girls from Salve Regina University Sailing Team who helped us organize and load the remaining 750 buckets & water filters aboard S/V Enzo! .
.

With over 750 buckets and Sawyer water filters aboard, each filter producing over 1million gallons of water, filtered to less than 0.1 micron, for 10 years - it means 75,000 people will be drinking clean water across islands and communities for the next decade! .
.

Other great news is that we are coming closer and closer to reaching our campaigns goal! We are now at 82%! The link to our campaign can be found on our Facebook page, please spread the word and share! .
.

Our day came towards an end with a beautiful Sunset and a final round of provisions that kept us up and busy until midnight! It's been a long week getting things ready, but we are excited to be a day closer to heading south from Newport, Rhode Island to the Caribbean Islands in need!
