Hands Across The Sea

Over the past three years, Hands Across the Sea’s Caribbean Literacy and School Support (CLASS) program has shipped over 50,900 books and 88 boxes of art supplies and teaching resources to 12,750 students at 52 schools, and eight libraries and community reading programs in seven English-speaking Eastern Caribbean countries. Hands acquires books from private donors, from school community service groups, and by buying them new through various sources and “nearly new” at Friends of the Library sales throughout New England. The books are sorted and packed by volunteers and shipped via our generous Hands corporate supporters, AIT Worldwide and Tropical Shipping, to school principals in the Caribbean. Working directly with local teachers, school principals, U.S. Peace Corps Volunteers, local NGOs and community leaders, Hands Across the Sea is helping to promote literacy, classrooms that are more conducive to learning, and the opportunity to explore art in under-resourced Caribbean villages — which often lie just over the fence from four-star hotels and resorts.

To make sure that the books and teaching supplies have reached their Caribbean destinations and are being properly utilized, Hands Across the Sea co-founders T.L. and Harriet Linskey visit recipient schools and communities from December through May.

The visits give Hands the opportunity to work on school improvement projects and to enlist cruising sailor volunteers to support local communities. In addition to books and resources, Hands has supplied classrooms with special “reading corners,” bookshelves for classroom libraries, and most recently built a literacy center and refurbished the school library in an underserved secondary school on the island of Dominica. We are rewarded by group hugs and smiling children and teachers who are thrilled to have high-quality, near-new books!

We take pride in our happy customers

Your team delivered on every mark. You’ve got an amazing broker in Mark Wattrus and I’m confident you will have continued success moving forward together. He was available 24/7 whenever I had questions. We had a great initial visit on the boat and his marketing plan and photos were superb

I bought a yacht that I had never seen. I did this because I trusted my broker Andrew Holland. It was not an easy job for Andrew, as I am an experienced boat builder and owner of previous yachts, but work in West Africa. Imagine how hard it was to communicate what I was looking for. Andrew came up with exactly what I wanted. He dealt with time delays, all my questions at odd hours, and was there for the survey. He reported honestly and professionally. After buying the yacht, I arrived at the boat on a Sunday night, after dark, after travelling from West Africa to the Caribbean, and found it was better than expected. He never pulled punches and made me aware of shortfalls. I expected to spend my one month leave working on the boat, but actually spent less than one week, and was able to spend 3 weeks sailing – wonderful bonus.

Thank you Andrew for putting up with all my questions, all my worries and all my crazy out of the time zone concerns – you were totally professional, but also I know that if and when we meet up, it will be like a friend finally meeting. You are always welcome on Aseka.

Outstanding company with professional subject matter experts. If I were to buy or sell cruising sailboat, particularly a catamaran, Andrew would be my go to broker.

I have been sailing since I was a child and attended Massachusetts Maritime Academy. But when my wife and I began the process of purchasing an ocean cruising/racing catamaran, I realized that this is a world unto itself. Obviously, we needed to find someone knowledgeable to help us make an informed decision. More importantly, we needed someone honest and willing to put our interests before his or her own. I was lucky to work with Phil Berman at The Multihull Company. He repeatedly shunned the fast buck, choosing instead to work the long road to connect us with the “perfect boat”. I would be glad to recommend Phil and his company to anyone planning to purchase or sell a performance sailing machine.

— Eric Boutiette

Andrew Hodgdon was our broker when we bought our 2018 Lagoon 450F in Antigua in April 2922. He provided great service and was very attentive to our needs. We would highly recommend Andrew and the Multihull Company.
