Hi Hugh and Mike,
My name is Rich and I'm currently located down in Ecuador
looking for passage across the Pacific, and your ad struck me as pretty interesting!
I'm 21 years old, from the US, and have been sailing small boats and windsurfing since I was 10. I've never been on a long voyage, but would love to get on one before going off to graduate school
. I am reasonably fit, have no known medical
problems, and very enthusiastic about sailing. I'd be happy to perform all required tasks and the like.
Are you planning on stopping in Ecuador
at all along the way, or just in the Galapagos
? If you're not, I might be able to get myself to the Galapagos on another boat
by the 15th of April. Also, do you have any estimate regarding the average cost of the trip? I'm happy to chip in, but unfortunately I don't have an enormous budget
, and it's got to last until school
If you're interested, you can contact me at "rpang dot contact at gmail.com" or "rpang at wisc.edu".
Look forward to hearing from you!
