Upcoming Resupply, Matt needs your help

Unfortunately it looks all the equipment breakdowns that Matt has been dealing with will require a special resupply mission. Matt is almost without anyway to generate power right now, and the methods that he does have won’t last the whole way home.

Simon Edwards is currently planning a resupply out of Recife, Brasil scheduled within a week or so. If you have any ability to help out Matt with a small donation for the new parts it would be very much appreciated. If you can, please click the Donate to CRAB button to the right and contribute what you can – every little bit helps!

Thank you!

  1. The resuply operation was perfect.! It was planned to meet at 9:00 Am in a way point 4 miles out of Recife port. The first photo taked show an incredible achivement. It was 9:00 am when we get the rope from Matt´s boat since he does´t stop and continue sailing during resuply operation. It tooks less than 20 minutes and he change curse to 90 degres and sail away.
    More details tomorow morning. Good luck Matt!!!!!

    1. Marcos, Thank you so much for your time and effort in the resupply. Great people do great things, you did a great job.

      All the best to you.

      And now Matt, I’m sure there are a lot of people who will be waiting for you in Annapolis. Take her home and enjoy.

      1. Congratulations Marcos Medeiros on having achieved the most rapid and efficient refueling that I have ever heard. Only 20 minutes?! Refueling in motion?! Amazing, fantastic, extraordinary. Best, impossible! I am proud to be a Brazilian sailor. LoL ! But we must also congratulate Matt. He certainly contributed to the success of the operation.

        Bravo and good winds to you both Marcos Medeiros and Matt Rutherford ! I already have a good reason to drink a beer tonight.

    A hearty congratulation to all the paticipants directly involved. HIPP – HIPP X 3 X 3 !!! A great and special sailboat show is planned for last week of April in Annapolis. Matt’s landing here will probably happen around that time. What a great event it would make with Matt sailing in as the perfect sailor/guest of HONOR during the show. Just a thought ….. ?!

  3. So glad to read that the resupply went well! Great job to all involved!! Well wishes to Matt for a safe trip North.
