Description

Medical Sailing Ministries (MSM) began in 2008 in response to the need for medical transport to remote villages in Vanuatu. MSM currently operates using the 53 foot steel yacht Chimere, on loan from MSM members, Robert Latimer and Barry Crouch. After much planning and preparation, 2009 was the first year of in-the-field service, with follow-up missions in 2010 and 2013

Chimere is crewed by like-minded, enthusiastic volunteers, who each share a sense of adventure, plus the simple desire to help others.

When not providing transport and logistical support, MSM is assisting in the development of the Vanuatu Dental Care Services
