Damsel in Distress

I haven't posted messages such as this on here before so I hope I am putting this in the correct spot. I guess admin will let me know if I need to edit this.

A salor was stranded and left in St. Thomas and in need of help. She does have water sailing">blue water sailing experience. If anyone is in need of crew.

Another forum I'm a member of is accepting donations to assist her in returning home. If anyone here is interested you can find more details at renegade-cruisers



Thank You,
Bill

All I really know right now is the skipper put her off in St Thomas telling her she is on her own leaving her with very little money.

I know that she is disabled and on a limited income so I am just trying to help her get home.

Edited to add I am sure there are two sides to this story, but I hate to see anyone stranded and I'm trying to help her get home without picking sides. And my pockets aren't deep enough to do it all by myself.

She was asked to depart from the sailboat she was on, but the reasoning are not relevant to the asking for help at this point.

Before I go on allow me to introduce myself, I'm the admin of Renegade Cruisers. I posted a request to your admin if I could post a request for help, not realizing one of the members was on both boards.

C-hag is a woman currently 'stranded on St Thomas'. (Dang, that sounds like a great movie idea).

We are trying to get together enough to fly her home to Cali. We are about 1/2 way there. ....

Damsel = Young women. I apoligize, I guess I wasn't thinking. She's not so young, she is a woman.

Let me see what I can do about that link. Sorry, I forgot they put that thread in a members only area.

I have asked the admin to move the thread to a public area. Give me time and I'll get you a good link.

Thanks,
Bill

Renegade Cruisers

It is in now a global announcement, I made a new thread that is just the request for help. From the link, go into the forums, and hit thread, it will be the first one in every forum.

This is a woman who is stuck in a place with no available resources. She's a retired nurse, with limited income, with a disability.

How about any of our members in St. Thomas, can you verify this? Not to say it is not legit but there are lots of scams out there especially using the net.

No It's C-Hag. This gal lives in San Diego, CA. I think Bella lives somewhere on the Chesapeake Bay doesn't she? I never got close enough to Bella to ask where she from.

LoL as far as I know they are still doing well. However, I haven't seen him on the board for a while.

From what I understand some else on the Rene Board has his cell number and has or is trying to get ahold of him. I'll check and see if they got in contact with him later on this evening.

Here I am.

Whoever can make contact with C-hag/Karen is welcome to send me a PM with information as to when or where she would be willing to meet so that this story can be verified, in person. The year is almost over and I have one good deed left.
